Sometimes we get hung up on internet advertising as the ONLY way to get the word out to people, but I'm a huge fan of the humble "stick on the back of a car" such as this:

​

This is a simple (yet effective) add from Glass Guru on one of their work vans:

GOT FOGGY WINDOWS?​
​Guaranteed Repair Saves 50% or More!

This is very straightforward and clear….and if someone has foggy windows they might give them a call….all from a simple stick on the back of a van!

Some of the benefits of vehicle advertising:

  • Potentially thousands of people a day see the ad.
  • If selling a local service you show it to local people.
  • While parked at a location, others can see the ad and reach out (it's how I found my lawn guy).

In fact as online advertising is getting increasingly expensive, offline advertising is getting more love now!

Not sure if some of you new newsletter subscribers remember this, but 5 years ago I was curious about billboards and got one made for $900!​

Uplifting:

I had a few hours to spare last Sunday, so I figured I'd try to launch "What Should I Tweet Generator" on Product Hunt:

​

Creating all the images + copy + email took under an hour.

The Generator works like this:​
β€’ Shows a randomized tip on what to post on load.
β€’ Click "Generate" it comes up with 3 more ideas.
β€’ Has a text field where you can practice writing.

​

It worked well, getting around 100 upvotes on Product Hunt!!

​

​

​

Picture:

This was me at 10am the other day working from bed...comfortable, safe, and happy:

​

By 10am my ancestors would've been up for 6+ hours, doing manual labor, toiling in fields, bitten by bugs, beaten by sun, working to survive, they get no breaks, have no backup plan.

THIS is a great time to be alive πŸ™‚

​

​

​

​

Interesting:

You can make a trackable "Content Calendar" with this new Google Docs feature:

Insert β†’ Table Templates β†’ Review Tracker

Watch me create one here:

​

This is a simple feature other doc programs like Notion have had for a while, so I'm excited to see it on Google Docs finally!

Very useful!

​

​

​

Drawing:

I made a Death Calculator a long time ago based on what an average life looks like:

​

According to the calculator on that page here's how long I have to live (If my "end date" is my 85th birthday:

​

It's kind of an uncomfortable feeling for many people to view their life in this way. For example, here’s the high-level program of my life:

load (Neville){​
0: Born
20: Make money, Fit in, do dumb things
30: Slow down
40: Family + Friends
50: End competitive working life
60: Family + Friends
85: End;
}

At a high level a life doesn't seem that eventful.

However it's the journey through life that counts (that sounds so cliche) πŸ˜‚

​

​

Hope you enjoyed these little tidbits, have a happy Friday!
