    Default I've Given Them All Away.

    I've looked high and low. I guess I gave them all out.

    I will say, with all the computer graphics and such right now, aking a cool "CUSTOM" brochure should not be too hard. We basically used the three "T" method. Tell them what you are going to tell them...Tell them. And in conclusion, tell them what you told them.....

    In 1997, the P.R.O.P. Tour was on ESPN 2, so we used ESPN's data. Today, I would use a You Tube Pro Mo and tell them how many views your You Tube Pro Mo is getting. Have you watched the HoneyBadger on You Tube??? 33 million views. Danica Patrick said she will drive like the You Tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4r7wHMg5Yjg .

    With the ponsors I did gett, I was never shy about telling them what I could do FOR THEM..

    I once talked the Golden Shores Land Company into giving me $65,000 in cash for a boat race. 1970 Winter Nationals had 450 plus entries. We paid cash money, my dad counted it. I bought ads in the L.A. Times. I was on Regis, Live in L.A. I went to Dodger's Stadium to be on the Wednesday's Sport TV Talk Shows. Golden Shores Land Company came out of my mouth, every other word.

    I told Golden Shores what I was going to do, how much I needed. Then, I did it. Our club made $10,000 on that race.

    Looking at the counter on You ube, this clip had 14,000 views. Not 33 million, but maybe enough to get a sponsor's attention.

    BRF gets 37,000 views a month with an averaging viewing time of five minutes.


    ADD: Honey Badger has had 54,000 views since I posted the link yesterday 1/20/12.
