The holidays tend to surround and consume the media, our cities, and everything in-between that we can see, hear, and/or be entertained by. From stores to online surplus outlets, we end up in a joyous circumstance of opportunities to buy what we can for our loved ones at significant discounts. These can range from the dolls and action figures for the children that adore their favorite movies and television shows, to the electronics for those that are pursuing an education in modern-day, to the delicious flavors of goods that hit the shelf and the restaurants as incentives to explore something more or new foods and beverages some have never laid eyes on before.
The image of the easter bunny brings a whole variety of rabbit-specific goods and services in the area. Theatrical entities open up and promote services for children and promotions by offering people whom dress up and deliver an image of the Easter Bunny for acting and pitching as the customer requests. While this is seasonal, there are similar companies that also hire and deliver child-like heroes from cartoons to be present for birthday parties and other events that could draw an audience; especially when someone can promote the event with the idea that such a character (a princess, for example) will be available to spend time with the audience, take pictures, participate in activities, etc. The market for this is incredible and very interesting to see flourish rapidly.
A similar fashion occurs when elves and representatives of Santa Claus come out of the woodwork to deliver opportunities to take pictures and listen to citizens share what they desire for Christmas after reporting whether their behavior all year has been acceptable and minimum to deserve receiving gifts. Notwithstanding the notion of whether such an activity is religiously affiliated, commercializing these times of the year has proven significantly profitable. Easter eggs as candy, mint in the shape of candy canes, and colors painting a variety of foods at grocery stores were growing commonplace more and more as years go by.
Godiva has been able to successfully expand on Valentine's Day with their opportunity to market more chocolate than most sources whom claim that their product is home-made or original in nature. Despite the possibility of running out of products to sell, food and beverage joints similar to the model of Godiva tend to either require an increase with their inventory, or increase the repetition of their delivery in the weeks and months surrounding holidays. The special deals advertised increase not only in repetition but quantity of notices given to the masses; and amazingly, the sales increase. Especially with the foundation of the internet, online sales have skyrocketed and ensure that shipping and receiving of goods promote the logistics-related companies, both federal-based and private, presence in-turn for delivering that which is ordered.
Clothing follows a similar pattern. With the popularity of ugly sweater events taking shop and the entertaining competitions that ensue at such events for whom wears the ugliest sweater at the party, and lingerie sales that skyrocket, major occasions tend to ensure that retailers and clothing lines are able to keep goods in-season.
Such a thought also accommodates the marketing departments of the major corporations. This paves the way to allow the larger entities, as well as the smaller mom-and-pop shops, to prepare their marketing plans and modify prices to cater to their audience. Additional considerations include prime positioning of select products on the floor design of their store(s) and ensure that the modified clothing (from past seasons) are positioned in the clearance section or re-advertised within the confines of a sale.
Indeed, the calendar year is filled with opportunities to advertise. With romance not necessarily being limited to a specific time frame, according to the habits of humanity and emotion, intimate apparel and delectable foods are sure to appeal to anyone when senses and the buzz of holidays and special occasions are heightened. You, too, can incorporate such practices in your business, but it is first, and most importantly, absolutely vital to know that there are strategies that your competitors are taking.
Ironically, when someone dominates on Google, it can take a little more than simply some slick strategy and prime placing of the season's best approaches to try and turn a profit. Simply put, countless business owners have been pitched by the promises that could come from being ranked on Google. However, most interviewed business owners are hungry about the products and results that come from being ranked on the top of Google -- like phone calls, and the bottom line increasing from additional prospective clients reaching out and asking for services. The additional, increased web presence is also a huge compliment for advertising as domination is the key to success when someone wants to climb to the top of the field in the fastest, most effective manner in this capitalistic society that Americans live in.

It often can appear, looking back, that Detroit was "the" automotive manufacturer ages prior to being a city "proper." A quick gaze across the landscape we reside among, a pride rests over our shoulders as we call it home. From asphalt in distance to highways as far as the eye can see, streets criss-crossing everywhere and nowhere as if a jumbled yarn ball we call our motorways, likening each car to its prior counterpart and seemingly to have a mile of roadway strapped to it as it rolls of the assembly line, and still our vehicle count on these roads could have been argued to be at an all-time low.
An isolated conundrum found as one reads across multiple news outlets in the passing day... a pedestrian or cyclist caught unaware by the seemingly broadside of a sedan. Counter-intuitive as it may be, we could be had to perceive that we were to have countless vehicles on our roadways, though so few means for bikers and non-motorized motorists alike. However, the Open Streets program strives toward delivering a slight shift to such a dynamic. If even for a few days annually, the program seeks to reduce the volume of vehicles on our roads and elevate the volume of people trekking on-foot.
The foundation is simple. One day, a grouping of hours blocked off, roads closed to motorists, bikers/walkers/families/wagons even seem to be the primary form of locomotion on our roadways. Mirroring that of the marathon closures seen around the country, but with a more laid back approach. Such an excellent concept can invite communities to step out confidently, comfortably, and enjoy their own city a little more. Its outstanding to see neighbors come together again on this premise alone; no vehicles on certain roads, and people exiting personal living spaces to enjoy the neighborhood air.
Certainly, as with most things, detractors could exist. Although, any kind of that would be best left to those citizens who wouldn't be appreciate of change, especially one that could render them a minute late for the routine, afternoon latte due to simply needing to travel down a different side street. For the most part, this endeavor seems to be embraced by numerous participants, including city leaders, whom turn this annual extravaganza into an annual event many look forward to. Once upon a time, the roads might have been said to belong to pedestrians and our automobile operators were required to abide by allowing those on-foot the right of way. Marketing efforts of our modern times have delivered change. Every time something changes, sometimes going back may be a beneficial thing that we can all admire.
Ever wonder about the experience of our past generations in walking down the very center of a main road -- Michigan Avenue, for example, where the mid-afternoon hustle and bustle is eliminated along with the hesitation of becoming a hood ornament. Let us travelers afoot reclaim our status as masters of our streets in society. Let us acknowledge that vehicles will not become the mainstay they have been once regarded as, and in pedestrian fashion, at least for a few hours in a single day of a single year, let us enjoy the start of something beautiful and enjoy our communities with our friends, families, and neighbors once again.
