Thanks for keeping an eye on things!

I am indebted to you and @SusanDay for the terrific job you did here in the forum while I was gallivanting around China.

Thank you, thank you!

China's marketing strategy seems to be to simply outshout your competition.

There is an incredible amount of content posted here there and places I couldn't have imagined.

Is your strategy also to outshout your competition?

If not, then what is your strategy?

@Belew My strategy is to be in as many places as I can over the web - hence my 100 guest posts in one year program.

Not so much shouting, but trying to be in as many places as I can.

@SusanDay

I am working on, learning, exploring a new-ish strategy. My head really got to turning while on this China trip.

Details to come.

I was in one of Shanghai's Carrefour stores. Each department had its own electronic bull horn playing its own ad. Many websites now have an autostart video playing advertising. Annoying!

@morrnel

I was in a Walmart in Nanjing and there was no one there!?!

We visited a different Walmart on another day in the same city and my puzzle was solved.

The reason nobody was in the other Walmart was because they were all in the current one I was in.

Walmart had a 15 second-ish video that was on a relentless auto repeat. I couldn't speak Chinese when I got there, but I could when I left.

If you pound hard and long enough on people who can't escape, something is bound to happen.

Perhaps the secret is not the message but in giving people no means to get away. And then pound pound pound.
