Free Birthday Stuff on your birthday

Businesses, such as film/TV productions, are like a family.  (OK, sometimes a dysfunctional family but family nonetheless!)  Here's a way to remember your "relatives" on their birthday...

There's a new company getting lots of buzz and attention and it focuses on ways to acknowledge birthdays - yours, friends, family and even business associates.

It's called freebirthdaystuff.com and it has gotten a lot of attention in the media (see the tie in here?).

You get free birthday offers and such on your birthday.  Definitely worth checking out, whether you are a merchant wanting to drive more business or just a person who enjoys birthdays!

Tourism/Travel impact on business

Great section on tourism and travel in the May 2012 Entrepreneur Magazine.

Quote on page 18 was especially good:

"For every $1 invested in travel, businesses experience an average of $10 in incremental sales, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council".

Filming supports tourism in big ways, so communities should do all they can to encourage filming locally.  It helps with economic development in both the short term and long term!
