2 Way Radios and Hot Crab Fritters

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Hi Friends,

We live and work in Naples, Florida. Naples is a great place to live year round but it is also a resort town. I don’t know the exact numbers but Naples probably doubles in population during the winter months.

People come here for the terrific weather (it is February as I write this and today’s high will be in the 80’s. People come here for the beach, golfing, great restaurants and an increasing abundance of events.

Every weekend during season Naples features all kinds of special events. (Season is what the locals call January thru April.) This weekend it was the National Arts Festival, the Strawberry Festival, an Antique Car Show and several concerts. Next weekend is Craft Beer Festival, Florida’s Got the Blues Festival, Lorenzo Walker Air Show and Pancake Breakfast (I am going to this) and at least a dozen flea and farmer’s market. We have festivals to celebrate local seafood, boating, swamp buggy racing, model railroading  and a long list of other stuff.

The traffic here is unbelievable. Because of the high volume of visitors and their average age exceeding the average age getting around town can be problematic. (Note that there is nothing automatic about problematic.)

The special events and the special time of year and the nature of being on vacation all add an element of suspense and act now and limited time offer and so on.

In our 2 way radio business we strive to consistently improve. We are not about the special sale or limited time offer. Our 2 way radio products are reliable, easy to use and affordable. We work everyday to improve those features. We are forever looking to find products that better accomplish this criteria.

Two way radio improve safety, efficiency and productivity. These are important missions for every business. We consistently and constantly promote the use of 2 way radios for these purposes.

None of this is as immediately gratifying as biting into a hot crab fritter served from a tent at the Art Show but its appeal is much more long lasting.

Let us help you find the best 2 Way Radio equipment for your needs and budget. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy and long lasting.

Best Wishes,

The Law of Least Effort

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Hi Friends,

I’ve been reading Deepak Chopra’s book “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.” The fourth law is the “Law of Least Effort.” Deepak describes this phenomenon as nature functioning with effortless ease.

This law is akin to the path of least resistance or better yet doing things the easy way. I am left handed so I know all about doing things the hard way. Two way radios are all about doing things the easy way. Our 2 way radio customers tell us that after using radios for just a few weeks they can not imaging doing business without radios.

Two way radios let you and your team reach everyone immediately. Two way radios increase safety, boost efficiency and improve productivity.

We can help you find the best 2 way radio equipment for your needs and budget. Do you need help solving distance problems? Do you need water proof radios? Do you need extra durable radios? Give us a call we can help.

Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy. You might say doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is effortless.

Sometimes You Need A Kickstart

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Hi Friends,

Kickstarter.com is too cool. Kickstarter is a website that operates as a funding platform for creative projects. Since it started in 2008 Kickstarter has raised over $400 million.

Kickstarter provides a web presence for anyone looking to gain funding for their creative project. For example suppose you would like to produce a book of photographs depicting the front doors of famous peoples homes. Let’s further suppose you don’t have a camera or travel money or the money for publishing. You can pitch your idea on Kickstarter.

Participants declare through a video or just the written word the amount of money they need, what they will use it for and a time limit for raising the money. In our example, you might declare a goal of $5,000 with a 40 day time limit.

People sign on to the Kickstarter website find a project they are interest in and pledge a contribution. If the project receives pledges equally to the goal contributor’s credit cards are charged the amount pledged. If the goal is not met no contributions are charged.

Project creators also offer additional incentives to encourage contributions. In our example a tee shirt or signed copy of the finished book might be offered.

Kickstarter is a great idea on several levels. In many cases Kickstarter participants can raise money faster than they can complete loan application requirements from their  regular bank. Project creators can work on their projects rather than having to schmooze with investors.

The category of projects include comics, dance, design, food, technology and more. Here at 2 Way Radio Express we are working on a couple of technology projects. One of our projects is “A Better Mouse Trap Base Station”. We just call it the Mouse Trap. The Mouse Trap base station cost less and does more than most desktop base stations. Our Mouse Trap base station is nearing completion but an extra $3,000 dollars could wrap up the project. Don’t be surprised if you see the Mouse Trap on Kickstarter.com.

Let 2 Way Radio Express help you find the best 2 way radio equipment for your needs and budget. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.

2 Way Time Machine

Friday, February 8th, 2013

Hi Friends,

Most anything can be described by either what it is or what it does. Describing something by what it does is usually the best description.

Two way radios save steps. Push the button and instantly talk to every team member equipped with a radio.

Need help? A 2 way radio will summon help immediately.

Two way radios boost productivity by keeping everyone informed at once.

The instantaneous nature of two way communications improve efficiency and productivity and safety. Two way radios save time, steps and effort.

2 way radios are time machines because they create time where time was not previously available.

Let us help you find the best 2 way radio equipment for your needs and budget. Two way radios boost efficiency, improve productivity and increase safety. Doing business with 2 Way Radio Express is easy.

Best Wishes,
