How an inexpensive video can be your biggest asset


When I came across this article in Mashable, I had to confess I had never heard of this video. Probably because I’m no where near the target market for this product. Still, with a $6,000 investment this small unique business, that was being run out of an apartment, launched this video that went viral overnight and in just two months has close to 6 million views. According to the article, it speculated that this business, which is no longer buying supplies at Costco, is now being run out of a warehouse with distributors and is clocking 6 figures a month in sales!

With the proliferation of multiple devices and screen sizes, designing interfaces has become tricky to say the least. Gone are the days of simply dealing with multiple web browsers and versions.

I have been riding for about 6 years now. In that time, the longest trips I had taken were either a couple days here or a few days there, but usually within a few hundred miles of home and typically with at least one other person or a group up to 25 other riders. Up until a couple of years ago, I was strictly a sport bike or ST kind of guy. Then my friends got me back into dirt bike riding which I loved as a kid and really enjoy as an adult.
