On this day in 1885, Gallon Pumps Back in Stock, Elusive Advertising
Did you know that on this day in 1885, the dismantled Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France to the people of America, arrives in New York Harbor after being shipped across the Atlantic Ocean in 350 individual pieces packed in more than 200 cases.

Advertising is a funny thing. As I have mentioned before, we have realized through this PPE / Safety Supplies journey just how little we really “advertised” for our core business of networking products. As the safety supplies demand heated up we could advertise anywhere and it worked. Radio, buying into email lists of other companies, and of course leveraging our own email lists. And then all of a sudden much of it stopped working as quickly as it started. And with advertising no one tells you why it stops working. You have to try to figure it out. Is it pricing, stock levels, or what? It makes me realize that marketing is a whole new skill that can be very powerful but can also be very frustrating. There are no magic/silver bullets.
Starting this week we are trying telemarketing. I hope people receive our calls well! I hate getting sales calls, but every once in a while they have something I actually want and need and I hope that is the case with the calls we make. We can’t just sit around and hope people find us.
