  1. Hey Toni.. would live if your video tips were transcribed so I could read instead of watching a video. I catch up on newsletters I want to read usually in a coffee shop or over lunch and if I dont have headphones with me then video is out.. and it’s unlikely I’ll go back at another time… would have lived to READ this 🙂

      Great point Debi. We do that for the podcasts but now will absolutely add it for the videos as well. Thanks so much. T!

  2. Seth says:

    Fantastic tips Toni. Totally going to give some thought to this. Thanks!

    • Toni Newman says:

      Thanks Seth. This technique is one of all time favourites because there are so many opportunities and it’s so simple to do. Let me know what you come up with! 🙂 T!

  3. Loved the up beat music and attitude for “HItch a Ride.” For me the hitching a ride on a cultural happening makes sense and is appealing as our community is growing ever more diverse.Attracting attention is in part surely appealing to those who appreciate diversity. Commercially, watching the most successful advertisers to see what makes them appealing would also work but not so sure about using that approach. Thanks for sharing innovative ideas as always TONI. Positively, Pauline

      You bring up some great points Pauline. Yes… our communities are growing and becoming more diverse each and every day. That means that there are more and more opportunities not only to Hitch a Ride on a number of different events but also to innovate and adapt our messages to those particular market segments. Thank you so much for bringing another breath of positivity into our lives Pauline. T!
