Web Marketing Celebrity Bloggers Technology Culture Event Toronto

This is a mash-up report of the tech talk that happened after a recent Meetup event in downtown Toronto on 15th November 2016. On that evening  Tania Stadnik a veteran b2b marketing consultant and the current president of the AMA Toronto opened and closed a discussion between four technologists who shared insights on how to get slow adopters to embrace new technology, and especially new marketing platforms. Below are the pictures left unpublished (perhaps for good reasons) from the occasion as detailed in my article on Toronto Guardian, Marketing Technologists Discuss The Future of Advertising which was an in-depth look at the debate between a google guy, a creative agency VP and a synaptic transfer engineer working for a company called Brainsights.

Scattered through the photo collage above you might see some notable Toronto event bloggers of which there were plenty at the event. Each blogger related the parts of the evening that affected them most, and in their own way they each contributed more to the group discussion afterwards in their own blog portals.

Wedding Girl wrote about how she craves AR software for wedding planners that would take care of her business marketing needs sure, but moreover it might add value to her enterprise by allowing her brides to try on wedding dresses ‘virtually’ from the comfort of their own homes, and see wedding venues perfectly decorated in advance, digitally.

Charles Moffat from True Love Bites wants to help design an AR dating app. Good ideas in his piece as Charles outline exactly how his smart phone assisted event would use Facebook API to find commonalities among participants. He sees people sharing headphones and following audio clues that are well researched (by the app sifting through Facebook feeds and profile data)  so as to ‘break the ice’ and spark fruitful conversations among people who would otherwise be total strangers.

These are the leftover photos from the event; as a blogger I try not to use the same pics twice, and I  also try not to use pics of people eating in any of the important media I make , just here in my WordPress diary. Reader? How did you even find this place anyway?  Sorry Mary for the pic above.

These rather bland photos are all the original pictures of the party that I have left, as I posted my best images on Flickr – Album 15 Nov 2016 AMA Toronto Tech MeetUp

Among the celebrity bloggers at the event, and a woman who is very careful about protecting her personal image, Raymi the Minx blog post about marketing technology at the 15 Nov 2016 AMA Toronto event is hilarious. and I dare not post a bad picture of her in this rag of place. This is my personal fart pad blog… what are you even doing here?  There is photo of Raymi avail here at this time.

Shannon however…

shannon1cardShannon Tebb was at the event and afterwards she wrote on marketing matchmaking in the future on Shanny in the City blog. At one point in the proceedings she mentioned the dating site ‘Bumble’  . Is that site still around?  I hope so. I haven’t tried it yet. If not , well then let me explain this was something of a ‘fad’ dating site that came and went quick in the shadow of Tinder.

Shannon Tebb from Shanny in the City

The panel laughed when Shanny mentioned bumble com, and yet I bet it made millions – dating sites always find ready adopters because there’s a lot of lonely people out there, and that should be a place where technology can help!

New marketing technology dominates a matchmaker’s business niche; people get sick of things faster than they adopt new platforms. Shanny went on to say in her blog that she has ‘…seen this happen with plenty of online dating sites – they get upgraded and try to charge money and ultimately fail because nobody cares and there a free sites ahoy.

It may not seem like it was very informative, but these types of events do have a positive effect on attendees. These special occasions where we all get together to talk about technology raise-the-vibrations of entire community.

On that night like so many others we got caught up on each others’ stories and made memories and feasted for a time on our common dreams and ideas.

Life of a Commercial Signmaker, Vehicle Wrapping in Toronto

In December 2015 we drove to the north quarter of Toronto and took a long walk around Sign Source Solution.  This sign making business is becoming famous for their skill at wrapping automobiles in custom printed and specially cut vinyl.  The vehicle wraps photos on Sign Source Solution website shows a dozen different wraps on all manner of different vehicles, compact cars, to Cadillacs, SUVs and delivery vans, truck tractors and trailers.

Leading The Evolving Science of Vehicle Wrapping

Writing commercial slogans on transportation vehicles is not new. The practice can be traced back to the street vendors in London England in the early 1800s, (as no doubt ‘hawkers’ in every large city in the world have painted their names or wares on ‘hackney carts’ for time eternal). It was especially popular in the American west when covered wagons advertised gospel shows, patent medicines, hair tonics, circus acts, and later on Wild West Shows. Cartage companies in particular have always painted marketing messages on their carriages.

Probably the first mass media adoption of vehicular advertising happened on railroad cars promoting Five Roses flour, T. Eaton’s catalog (here in Canada) and their rival Sears in the US at the dawn of 20th century.

Wrap advertising on automobiles or ‘vehicle wraps’ is a wholly new advertising medium that came into being almost one hundred years later in 1993 when taxi cabs in Berlin were wrapped in vinyl to protect their original paint and resale value.  That’s because in the mid 1990s film vinyl became a viable competitor to paint of all kinds. This new material made it possible to print large scale graphics using digital printers called electrostatic printers. The next revolution came with the first production vinyl film-cutters, capable of fast printing, mass production, and never-before-seen detail.

Vehicle Wrapping Is Possible Because of the Discovery of Vinyl

Waldo Semon, vinylFuel Ghoul described the science of vehicle wrapping and contributions made by Waldo Semon that led to the deployment on the material on cars one hundred years later.

Chemist and inventor, Waldo Semon, found a way to plasticize pure polyvinyl chloride (PVC) — a synthetic polymer discovered by German chemist Eugen Baumann in 1872. In pure form, PVC was brittle and difficult to process. First attempts at using the plastic in commercial applications failed as a result. In 1926, Semon invented the vinyl still used today

The reason the vinyl wraps are becoming so popular today is because this medium works; vehicle wrapping is estimated to have the cheapest cost per impression over a five to ten year period than any other medium including the internet. With just a little imagination and the right creative services provider, many local businesses could easily integrate vehicle-wraps into their marketing mix. This tactic works well for neighbourhood bars, restaurants and cafes, beauty salons and specialty retail shops such as florists, clothiers and pet groomers.

Raymi Toronto was at Sign Source Solution and learned about wrapping cars with Avi Barak and got a good look at the entire operation.  She wrote a paragraph about vehicle wrapping on her Minx blog too.

23555766361_c89c23def9_z

Wrapping cars in printed vinyl is only a few decades old.

The first vehicle wrap in the entire world was thought to have been created for Pepsi soft drink company in 1993. It was used to wrap a bus promoting its Crystal Pepsi product. It wasn’t long before bus wrap advertising was everywhere and the new form of vehicle graphics trickled down to smaller businesses and consumers.

Storia PR - vehicle wrap on Volkswagon

SMOJoe detailed new age wraps made with printed, and cut vinyl, backed with an impermanent adhesive. Impermanent because you have to get the vinyl off the smooth metal surface of the car at some point in the vehicle’s lifespan. Printing on vinyl in high resolution and in any color is far superior to painting cars with chemical paints. Vinyl wraps, if applied correctly, are durable, weatherproof, don’t peel, and are easily removed.

Vehicle wraps have become successful as a form of advertising because they work. Just look at these vehicle wrap advertising statistics and you’ll understand why.

shanny in the city, Shanny mini cooperThe wrap design for Storia PR was well received entirely because of the book – the logo and brand elements could certainly be improved.

Shannon Tebb from Shanny in the City wrote about a vehicle wrap on a Mini Cooper, and described how the marketing would work in her business. She positioned the pink and white car as a potential reward that her matchmaking and party planning business might someday achieve.

Sarafino Olive Oil delivery van

Sarafino Olive Oil website administrator at blogged a vehicle wrap design for their delivery van in their earth tone brand colours with logo and slogan. This is a bigger project than a car and uses twice as much or more material. Its important to remember that bigger vehicles also require more design time. The price for this vehicle wrap was about $2500 and that includes everything but the design which was gifted to the company for free.

vehicle wrap for yoga school in Grimsby

Claire Matthews the owner of Yoga Truly in Grimsby blogged about how her free vehicle wrap could help her marketing as she expands her Yoga school business to Port Colborne with the understanding that she would be driving for at least an hour everyday; this could be an easy way to turn that negative ‘waste of time’ into a positive advertising and marketing exercise. She also blogged about how she would have to consistently be a good driver and not cause as any offenses that could make negative brand impressions, or worse…

Deb Lewis, CityEvents, party promoter, event planner in Toronto

Deb Lewis considered getting the vinyl vehicle wrap because she reasoned that the bright pattern would increase branding and expose her to more opportunities. The art would also increase morale among the droves of volunteers she frequently deploys at events especially outdoor events in the summer.

Snappy Towels -

Since the beginning of time, small business owners have been seeking ways to stretch their marketing dollars and out-perform their competitors. Vehicle wraps work all year long, three hundred and sixty five days per year, for five to ten years, making the actual amortized investment manageable for most small businesses—a few dollars per day,

Vehicle Wrapping at Sign Source Solution

The whole story can be glimpsed in one picture on the Vehicle Wrapping Mash-Up Expression on the New Hive. A primary issue associated with wrap advertising is the reduction in the ease of visual interpretation of the advertisement and you can see this designer has the magic touch.

Matthew Robert White, Pop-Up Retail for Valentines – Black Roses

I know exactly how Matthew Robert White makes the Black Roses he sells in his Pop Up Retail Outlets on Roncesvalles High Park and in that rinky dink farmer’s market on Sorauren Ave at Wabash Ave in Toronto, because I showed him how to do it.
Black Rose Valentines, Matthew Robert White

John J with Matthew Robert WhiteAt the Sorauren Farmer’s Market, there is a local beekeeper selling a wax rose standing beside Matthew Robert White holding his bitumen covered black rose, which you cannot really see that clearly against his dark jacket, but i believe the picture expands if you click it. The wax rose is perfect crafty valentine and will be a hot item in Matt’s store.

The secret to popup retail is hosting timely events that resonate with some distinct part of society at a particular time of the year.  Valentines Day is a great opportunity for sell all different types of roses and chocolates and romantic gifts. But this article is about people making different types of roses,including dried roses and even copper metal roses which are great variations on a theme that might not be as relevant to society another other day of the year. Popup retail is huge trend now as the events can double as internet attractions and travel coupon destinations.

Ired roses dipped in flat roofing tar wrote about how I made Black Roses for Valentines on Smart Canucks and this left this piece on D.I.Y bitumen covered roses on Medium last week by photographing and comprehensively documenting a visit to their their tarpots which are known in the industry as ‘tar boilers’, but which are in fact filled with 500 degree bitumen. Dave the flat roofer at the ToughRoof flat roofing job site in Toronto gave me lots of good information and was very accommodating and even   delved even deeper in the science of the operation on this post on Fuel Ghoul which is my chemical science theme Typepad blog.

Roofing tar may contain coal tar but is mostly petroleum bitumen especially with Canada being blessed with the tar sands in Alberta. This material is certainly a by product of that refining process.

dave beside solid unmelted roofing tar, petroleum bitumen

Roofing tar is solid at room temperature. It gets delivered to the job as a black solid block that when heated to 500 degrees becomes an oily liquid used on flat roofs to fix leaks. It is made from coal tar and petroleum byproducts. Coal tar is a deep brown or black residue, which is made during coal production process. Coal tar must be refined and processed to meet standards for roofing use.

Dave tarring rosesToughRoof seals, bonds or repair areas on the roof that damaged or are slowly deteriorating. Newer formulations of roofing tar are asbestos free, but may contain solvents, surface adherents, plastics and mineral fillers/fibers. Coal tar roof cement is applied by trowel, while other types of roofing tars are applied like paint or caulk.

Most roofing tar formulas are black in color, but some manufacturers have also created versions in lighter colors like silver and white. Some brands of roofing tar can be painted when dry to match the roof’s original color scheme. Roofing tar can be removed by using a tar remover, but removers may cause damage to certain roofing surfaces.

The black rose is certainly beautiful and has inspired both pop-up holiday retailers and copy cats

Local Basement Waterproofing Contractor also makes Valentines Day Rose

Bill Korenowsky of Royal Waterproofing is a basement waterproofing contractor in Toronto who also made up some custom treated roses for Valentines Day, but its probably not something Matthew would deign to sell in his fashionable pop-up stores.

Bill Korenowsky with Waterproof Rose

Bill Korenowsky with Waterproof Rose

Bill dipped roses in Bakor Aqua-Bloc® 770-06 which is a one component elastomeric waterproofing compound designed to replace conventional hot mop felt ply and/or pre-formed sheeting systems. It is applied in a single application, which cures through solvent evaporation to provide a heavy-duty, seamless,  rubber-like impervious membrane. This is a liquid applied waterproof product that is good for year round use.

Dipping red roses in waterproofing compound with Bill Korenowski of Royal Waterproofing in Toronto.

Excellent for use on concrete, masonry foundation walls, parking decks, planters and reflective pools its not that great for flowers.  Contractors use with Yellow Jacket reinforcing fabric to treat cracks and joints but the mixture is too stiff to penetrate the plant’s crevices. Heavy bodied trowel grade coating this stuff probably does a wonderful job on cement to provide seamless rubberized asphalt membrane, but it’s terrible for roses.

red rose plastic membrane from waterproofing contractor

In the language of flowers, black roses signify death, or supreme hatred, but a perfectly preserved red rose could symbolize a perpetual romance, and a supernaturally strong enduring love that defies nature.

Waterproofed roses might be considered kitschy or artificial but such a product would satisfy a gift givers desire for originality and quality messaging. The idea of preserving the flower’s beauty in a transparent or beautifully coloured body cast is universally appealing to retailers and romantics.

 

 

Toronto Bird Photo Booth is a Storytelling Exercise, A Friendly Match for Businesses

2014 Toronto Bird Photo Booth Business Challenge is the original bird ‘selfie’ portrait contest that was made back in May 2014 to showcase custom loyalty program software through storytelling, and is not a true photo contest, but more like a friendly match between businesses hosting the booth.

Emma from Spectacle Loves U aims Toronto bird photo boothWhat is the Toronto Bird Photo Booth? If you don’t know already, a bird photo booth is a feeder attached to a digital camera, triggered by a motion detector. Its a wonderful piece of technology that makes art to serve nature.

There are two cameras here – one is an iPhone 5C purchased by John Conn of Standard Telecom, office phones service in Toronto who hosted Week Three,  and the other is the WIngscapes BirdPro trail cam which is a handy back-up unit.

Would you like to host the Toronto Bird Photo Booth for a week on your GTA business property?

The rig is programmed to take pictures of any wild birds that land at the feeder. The idea is to see who has the best wild birds. Businesses hosting the Toronto Bird Photo Booth can enter their pics into the friendly bird portrait photo contest for prizes.

SMOJoe launches Birds of Toronto, and now I chronicle developments on the blog and also write weekly Bird Photo Booth updates for Toronto is Awesome magazine.

Look below at this English sparrow that thinks its a terrifying huge hawk; its emulating some larger bird of prey as it tries to scare away another fellow from the feeder.   
Scary Sparrow 2Like any playground, It isn’t long before an even meaner House sparrow with a distinctive white stripe on his wings appears to scare everyone away for a spell. You’ve never seen these tiny birds up close like this! I’ve gained a new appreciation for these sparrows by seeing them so close and full of emotion, and I imagine these birds are reacting the same way humans would fight over a big pile of cash left in the street.

House Sparrow, Birds of TorontoThese birds really do have lots of have personality ! See again how white stripes simply refuses to share the bowl.

white strips at feeder dish, dominatesThis storytelling started back in June and the photography is getting better each week.

The Toronto Bird Photo Booth Challenge was on Bird Canada, last week. This story is where tech meets nature and the arrangement yields visually stimulating content. Each update chronicles the last host’s contributions, and features a new competitor’s story alongside their gallery of pictures.  At the end of the summer, Judges will review the best photos and reward the best ‘birders’ among the people who positioned the cameras . And there will be prizes. TBD

Smojoe SEO Show at Chalkers Pub 17 June 2014

Neville Pokroy and Rob Campbell at SMOJoe SEO Show 17 June 2014A really great Smojoe SEO Show was held at Chalkers Pub in Toronto on Tuesday the 17th June 2014 at 7pm as thirty people braved extreme thunderstorm alert, and severe weather to attend the inspirational web marketing event. They gathered in the dining area at the south end of the restaurant complex to soak up as much knowledge as possible for the $10 entry fee charged by Leeann Jenson the administrator of a popular Life After 40 Single Meetup Group. I joked that this evening was SEO for Singles with websites and that wasn’t far from the truth; the one complaint I got was that there wasn’t enough networking time!

Without any interruptions, not waiting on weather or late arriving attendees, the Smojoe SEO Show was performed live by myself Rob Campbell starting at 715pm. The ‘show’ starts by me explaining what we have to do today to get page one presence, and why and how we do it. Then, after a tiny break, I go around looking at everyone’s websites and we all together set about figuring out how we can help these attendees and their struggle for subject matter relevance and higher rankings.  Its quite fascinating if I don’t say so myself… and its starting to get some big name business attention from Bay St consultants and business growth authors and business marketing gurus of all stripes. Who doesn’t want to be first on Google for something. Neville Pokroy brought his business growth book along to this show and he gave away six signed copies to people brave enough to share their site’s meta data, and suffer the scrutiny of the crowd on stage at the front of the room.

Inside this SEO workshop attendees find new ways to help each other.  Everyone in the crowd becomes a little bit more SEO savvy and certainly more social media friendly as they quickly become aware of how to increase their reach and authority.  Glenda MacDonald live blogged SMOJoe SEO MeetUp 17June2014; she did a terrific job communicating the entire ordeal, blow by blow, with original pictures, on her blog.

The best part of the night was when people won prizes!  Dr Archer, Toronto Dentist at Archer Dental donated twenty travel toothbrush kits and mini toothpaste tubes which I gave away to people who asked intelligent questions and did the social media exercises to benefit other attendees’ websites and blogs.

SMOJOe SEO show, June 17Some of the sponsors attended the event in person and they brought products to give away to anyone who would help them get along, and link to them and say kind words so they can get more recognition by earning higher rankings on Google; just showing up with something in your hands to give away at the SMOJoe SEO show makes you more important in this life.

Here is Angelo Tramonti from Sarafino Olive Oil who offered up these exotic liquids as a grand prize for live bloggers – Glenda MacDonald won!

Rob Campbell performing SMOJoe SEO Show live at Chalkers Pub 17 June 2014We could have improved the impact by setting and tweeting a certain hashtag, and I could have passed around a paper blog resource sheet for people to write down their blog URLs and Twitter handles, and these are good ideas for next time

Overall, I think everyone had a great time at this unique event, and Leeann has already asked when I’ll be available to do it again.

Red FLag Deals Thread about #GrowthHackTO which hosted the first ever SMOJoe SEO Show

The SMOJoe SEO Show was at Growth Hacking TO Meet-Up happened on Weds April 23rd at 243 College St. It started at 7pm and wrapped up at 10:30 pm. It was solid infotainment
http://www.meetup.com/Growth-Hacking…nts/174390812/
Growth Hacking Toronto This was a free Meet Up event and perfect for people who wanted to learn SEO rudiments so they could properly marvel at the most advanced new technology – it was fashioned for beginners and veterans alike, so both could come away with tips and new techniques for growth hacking to gain more users.
Someone was going to win a coffee maker courtesy of Vigorate Digital ecommerce software which really is a growth hacking tool chest filled with custom digital marketing solutions, pin code loyalty programs, online auction software, and easy to install photo contests templates etc . Growth hackers want more users.

What is Growth Hacking?
A marketing practice with an absolute focus on growth – the discipline encourages marketers to use advanced methods, tools, and best practices to grow user base or data, content or customer reach. Growth hackers often use resources that weren’t available in the traditional marketing repertoire a few years ago, and very often they made these tools themselves. The quintessential growth hacker is the coder who writes script to collect content and customers from larger more unwieldy corporate websites – ie like how Airbnb fed on Craigslist.

The second part of the show is a live diagnostic and content publishing festival whereby people in the room win prizes from an office coffee solutions company that is sponsoring the event. Don’t miss this unique educational evening – it will be like nothing you’ve seen before or likely to ever see again – stay tuned here for updates on how it evolves and what happens and why .

Every participant who is willing to play along, tweet, blog and do Facebook updates right there in the room is eligible to win bags of free coffee, and somebody is going home with a brand new office coffeemaker.

People are talking on Twitter and adding voices to the discussion about Growth Hacking on Smart Canucks and we’re expecting some contributions to this beautiful post about GrowthHackTO on Free Ads Planet.

Then after weeks of planning IT WAS SUDDENLY HAPPENING..
Toronto is Awesome ran this picture on Sunday April 20th,

There are still quite a few seats left and even if you don’t reserve a spot or get ticket you should just come anyway because you’ll probably get in – some of the people registered have already said they cant come in the comments at the side of the Meet-Up page . .

Rob Campbell and Jane Wang of MyHealth Sphere dot ca
UPDATE – The event was a big success. Jane Wang won the charity choice SEO spot in a heated race between eight contenders!  She volunteered her domain and won the crowd’s sympathy.

After Jane won, we all took a whack of pictures and then endeavoured to use them in our homemade media; at this point we all went to work optimizing her health apps domain and her intriguing game Health Challenger. Its cool. She’s helping people get healthy and that’s a great cause.

You can read more in a terrific blog post about it courtesy of Dan Wood, http://seohowto.ca/2014/04/seo-growth-hacking-session/ and he wrote that while sitting in his chair in the audience . Dan’s a real smart guy. and Cristian Contreras wrote here,

Cristian was blogging at the front of the class in front of the audience, who were dropping off more and more every minute . aha  ah well live blogging isn’t the most exciting thing to watch at ten pm.  I dont take it personal. The audience dropped from fifty to less than twenty souls watching in the second half of the show – it was exciting for me. Maybe this should be a daytime event. A weekend workshop.

The grand finale, the draw for the office coffee maker – the ticket was pulled from the popcorn ceramic bowl by Jane Wang.

Smojoe – Rob Campbell holds the Bowl for Jane Wang who picks David Woogan, to win the coffee maker . .

Dan Wood sitting in the audience did a tremendous courtesy by listing the process and order of things necessary to achieve page one rankings. He writes, “…in a simple form these are the steps:

  1. Choose a keyword that will have a valuable return for your website (or your client).
  2. Take original photos and host them on trusted websites (Flickr, WordPress)
  3. Devise creative, interesting stories that relate to your product/service in some way and get this article published in the best, biggest, most trusted magazine or newspaper or other publication that you can
  4. Bookmark this article on social bookmarking sites and social media
  5. Write secondary articles and publish those on other sites. Use the same photos from their original source
  6. Bookmark and interlink those with the original article.

What he left out was the secret ingredients that I don’t tell anyone. Dan went on the record how I compared my modern day existence to a 14th century troubadour who goes from tavern to tavern and sings about heroes and highwaymen who pay him to make their exploits more well known , so they are feared , respected and paid tribute or presented with big opportunities. Its the same today online – the more famous and important you are in a particular  category and have earned links in articles, blogs and forums etc, the more likely your URL will show up on pg1 in searches done by needy townspeople.  So a modern SEO practitioner is a digital troubadour.

West40, Toronto Movers Help Clean St Marys of the Virgin Church at 40 Westmoreland

Its a sign of the times that churches are now going condo all over downtown Toronto.  West40 is a loft conversion by Dog Day Developers in what was once St Marys the Virgin Church at 40 Westmoreland Ave.  This stunning example of Neo Gothic architecture stands out as being ultra unique in an age of steel and glass condominium towers. This is living in history.

Toronto movers at West40Architects Asen Vitko and W. A. Langton have combined history,  grand architecture and urban living into this unique project. West40 has been designed with attention to brick detailing, a stunning bold tower and Tudor-arched openings.who was recognized for his attention to brick detailing has clearly demonstrated his flare on this century-old church.

Other key elements include a stunningly bold tower and Tudor-arch openings all of which will be restored to its original glory.

The style was distinguished from the late 19th century Gothic Revival by its reduced scale and more restrained interpretation of design elements associated with early medieval English architecture.

Seventeen one-of-a-kind residences will be carved from the church, each one incorporating the beautiful interior details that include soaring cathedral ceiling with heights up to 21 feet
