Oscar Point of Sale - Down the Rabbit Hole

Valentine’s Day 2020

Down the Rabbit Hole

So I have this cute little video for Valentine’s Day 2020, but I can’t really just put it in a blog and leave it at that.

I have to at least say something – preferably charming or witty, but at least pertinent.

Jumbo sized black coffee in hand, it was time to start practicing my Google-Fu.

Google Fu : The abiity to use Google with zen like prowess.

Use it in a sentence : “You couldn’t find it on the web ? Dude … your Google-Fu is weak”

Advice ranges from creating an experience ( not just a nice meal ) for your diners, to going Anti-Valentine’s Day.

While this article is a few years old now, I just love some of the ideas in it 🙂

Social media ranks highly as well – I really need to learn more about digital marketing – I don’t even have a personal facebook account !

Alas it has snuck up on me and I find that time is short 😐

So let’s get out of the rabbit holes, my name is not Alice.

It is time to add the video to this blog post, and wish you success in your well planned Valentine’s Day marketing campaign.
