Sociology – The Study of Peeps
Everyone strives to provide the “Best Customer Service” to their marketplace. It’s easy for the large well funded companies that might be your competition to offer things to the market that you can’t with your “Owner-Operator” budget. So how do you compete? How can you make yourself standout? How do you get that opportunity […]
KISS – A Band and a Concept
People always ask me why some people do better with FittleBug. I can’t get it out of my mouth quick enough – Keep it Simple Stupid concept. It’s human nature not to want to be confused, and feel stupid which leads to uncertainty. As it relates to FittleBug – to many choices can confuse the […]
When the Solution is the Cost
You go to the grocery store, you by a candy bar for a $1.00, you eat it and it makes you feel real good. Was the candy bar worth the buck? Everything is unknown until tested. This is true of your services, software, and just about everything you can think of. So… I want to […]

#1 Rule of Fishing should be followed for Online Marketing as well… You gotta have a line in the water to catch the fish… You have to be available when consumers are wanting you and how they are wanting you to book appointments. This is a true Story: My daughter and I went to […]
Can’t Help it – I like certain people More!
In this piece I will share with you how to offer specials that are not available to the entire public. Oh yea, FittleBug offers the ability to have promotion codes tied to a % or a $ amount, even tied to a list of items that you might call a “package”. BUT what I am […]
It’s All in the Presentation!
FittleBug is a tool, it’s not a science of measurement or consumer philosophy.

People get online to complete things – NOT to continue them!
Prospective clients are always asking me how FittleBug is different than other software on the market. My answer is always it’s real-time, but I’m not really sure that they know what that means. Real-Time means “Your Time”, not when they want you to be free and available for service, but when you actually ARE available. […]
Don’t follow the Travel Agents over the Cliff
Today in the United States there are about 13,000 travel retail locations, down from a peak of 34,000 in the mid-1990s. It was thought that there would always be a need for travel agents when traveling, but along came Expedia, Orbitz, Priceline and others. Not to mentions that people miraculously figured our how to pump […]
Ummm… That’s what She Said!
First – I am not trying to be sexist or plagiaristic… I just thought that the saying “That’s what she said” said it ALL! Carpet Cleaners hire traditionally a woman to answer the phone when they are busy cleaning carpets. They need someone to tell the prospects everything that they do, tell them when they […]
