Stories, favorites and great
Don't Overlook the Obvious

One night in New York City, a steel plate covering a deep pot hole became dislodged. Every time a car passed over it, the plate reverberated and clattered, interfering with sleep and even conversation.

Finally, at about 11 p.m., someone on the block called the police. Two radio cars arrived with five policemen. They all pushed and pulled at the steel plate, trying to get it back where it belonged. Unfortunately, nothing worked, and every time a car passed, the policemen would draw back, covering their ears with their hands because of the noise.

Finally, a woman in a long pink dress carrying an old kerosene lamp emerged from an apartment house. She went to a wooden sawhorse that a builder had left on the street, picked it up and marched to the pot hole. Silently, she hung the lantern on the sawhorse and placed it over the pot hole. The next car to come along swerved around the sawhorse, of course, and so did all the other cars after that. Then the woman in her pink dress went back to her apartment and the policemen, recognizing a good thing when they saw it, left, too.

This story by John Corry in The New York Times points out what should have been obvious. The solution was within sight, yet no one saw the "obvious," and five policemen were engaged in trying to solve the simple problem. Isn't that the way it is so many times in life? Things might look really dark, and yet the solutions to everyday problems of life are almost always right before us -- if we will calmly look at all the possibilities.

How to Generate Social Media Buzz for Your Event

How to Generate Social Media Buzz for Your Event
by Matt Alderton | June 14, 2019

By now, most major social networks are at least a decade old. Facebook was established in 2004, Twitter was founded in 2006 and Instagram, the baby of the bunch, will turn 10 next year. Just because it's aging, however, doesn't mean that social media has lost its touch. In fact, studies suggest that social networks are just as influential as ever. "Seventy-seven percent of all Americans have at least one social media profile," event marketing software company G2Planet notes in a recent post on its blog. "User numbers are steadily rising year-over-year across all platforms, and this upward trend shows no sign of stopping: A staggering 67 percent of online adults now have a Facebook account."

For meeting professionals, that means social media remains a critical platform through which to promote live events. But with so much noise on social networks, how can meetings and events stand out in prospective attendees' social feeds?

One idea, according to G2Planet, is to gamify your social media engagement with quizzes. "Encouraging followers to 'get quizz-y with it' for the chance to bag premium tickets," the company advises, calling it a "novel way to build buzz for your event and drive long-term interaction on your posts in the run-up to the big day. This could be anything from a short quiz hosted on your Instagram 'stories' to a weeklong puzzle with one question or clue revealed in each post. The possibilities are endless."

In order to be successful, quizzes should be short and easy. "The goal here is to keep fans engaged long enough to complete it," G2Planet continues. "British festival veterans 'Bestival' got creative with their headliner announcements in 2017, inviting followers to guess the act depicted in an abstract photo -- a great example of how gamification can attract potential attendees and build buzz for an event."

Another idea is to organize a contest. "Social media contests are a cost-effective and proven way of maintaining connections with current and potential event-goers, retaining follower engagement and boosting interaction on your social pages," G2Planet says. "For example, there's the simple yet very effective 'like-to-win' contest … [which] requires followers to like your profile, post or photo for the chance to win an attractive prize. Its simple format makes it perfect for hosting competitions across multiple platforms, and it's an easy way to grow your social following and drive event attendance. To pick a winner, simply choose a user at random from the 'likes' and contact the lucky recipient. Remember to include your event hashtag on any giveaway post alongside other relevant hashtags to further increase exposure."

US Open Projects: history - 1954

Indiana High School Basketball - glory days single class boys tournament

Career beginning: providing sectional scores for the Peru Daily Tribune: 1954
Miami County - Bunker Hill, Chili, Converse, Deedsville, Mexico, Twelve Mile

Even the smallest schools had a place in the event and a chance to win it all. First step were the sectionals, which fed into the regionals, the semi-state, state finals (final four)

I always wondered why there was so much enthusiasm for local teams, particularly those with no chance to advance. Losing so often would be a significant discouragement but that wasn’t the way it worked. Although every round, half the participants were losers, also the same number were winners and winners at the lowest level were proud to have a notch on their belt and the losers would look forward to trying to figure out how to get on that same page.

So there was significant motivation to be hopeful for this year and next and try to figure out how to be better as a team, with all the surrounding efforts.

In that decade, high school football and basketball dominated small and big Indiana towns because there was live local radio broadcasting the events, and many fans were faithful going to home games each Friday night. Players were always interested in who had their picture in the "paper" and usually weekend shopping was done on Saturday since many stores were not open Sundays.

VRBO calculator shows what you could earn renting your home to Naples travelers
VRBO Published 6:00 a.m. ET Feb. 13, 2019 Naples Daily News

Naples homeowners earned an average of $1,500 a month in rental income in 2017.

Thinking about renting your home as a short-term vacation rental? According to VRBO, the site for renting vacation homes, cabins and condos, Naples homeowners earned an average of $1,500[1] a month in rental income in 2017, with many owners making up to $3,500[2] per month. The data is a clear signal of the potential rental income homeowners could make renting their property in the Naples area.

Each year, with vacation rentals becoming the preferred choice for travelers, homeowners are also realizing the financial benefits of renting their homes as a substantial source of income. VRBO enables homeowners to rent out a variety of different properties to earn extra income, including primary residences rented for only a few weeks and vacation homes or second homes rented throughout the year.

Currently, over 50% of VRBO owners use their rental income to cover at least 75% of their mortgage.[3] VRBO’s new rent potential calculator takes the guesswork out of the equation, so homeowners can get a preliminary estimate of what they could earn before they list. This offers Naples homeowners a clear idea of their potential extra income, which gives them the opportunity to plan for expenses like retirement, college tuition, or other household costs.

The Paradise Coast Half Marathon and other citywide events bring travelers from all over the world to Naples.

Holidays and large citywide events like the Paradise Coast Half Marathon and Stay in May bring in travelers from all over the world looking for a place to stay. As these events approach, VRBO is observing a spike in vacation rental demand, especially in core Naples neighborhoods like Old Naples, Royal Harbor, Port Royal, and Coquina Sands. Increased demand works in favor of homeowners, as Floridians who are already taking advantage of this opportunity can attest.

For those Naples homeowners looking to rent for the first time, VRBO provides everything needed to get started from helping you decide on the best price for your rental to effectively promoting your rental to their hundreds of millions of travelers.

“Naples is an incredibly popular destination for families and groups,” says Bill Furlong, VP of North American Business at VRBO. “We’re here to help homeowners capitalize on the many visitors to the city in the easiest way possible. Once a property is listed on VRBO, we work to match that property to the right travelers and maximize bookings and rental income for homeowners.”

Interested to see how much your home could make? At www.vrbo.com/earn, you can enter basic information about your home’s size and location. You’ll receive an instant estimate of your property’s rental potential based on nearby comparable Naples rentals.
