Boulder Colorado The latest buzz on twitter from local online advertising firms is that On Line advertising does not work for small business’s like restaurants and retailers. It really does not work for big companies either. Banner ads don’t work and neither do pay for click ads. Two major PR firms and one Boulder ad house came right out and said basically, that online advertising is a dud.
First of all it costs too much money according to Trada ceo. Then SM kid Gabe Lee spread an article around face book saying Banner ads are a loser. Now these are two people who are speaking out of school in the ad world??
yep, But we agree with them.
HERE’S THE RUB: We’ve in in the advertising business at the local level for 30 years so we know what get results for advertisers. We have to or we would not be in business. Advertisers want results. They want to see income levels go up as a result of buying advertising.
You’ll notice Banner ads on the right side here. Do they work?? Yep. Why. Because we treat our advertisers as kings and queens. We don’t treat them as marks the way most online companies do. LIKE FACEBOOK, TWITTER and most of the Boulder online ad houses. What do I mean by that.??
We give our advertisers a full service compliment, track every hit, and we provide them with everything from video to pr. We don’t just sell them. We make it happen for them. We work their business for them. Ask them. They love us. If you are local and you want inexpensive old school results in a world of new technology call me Jann Scott 303 447 8531

(Reuters) – The State Department on Sunday warned Americans worldwide of “enhanced potential for anti-American violence” following the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
“Given the uncertainty and volatility of the current situation, U.S. citizens in areas where events could cause anti-American violence are strongly urged to limit their travel outside of their homes and hotels and avoid mass gatherings and demonstrations,” the State Department said in a statement.

Travel Warnings are issued when long-term, protracted conditions that make a country dangerous or unstable lead the State Department to recommend that Americans avoid or consider the risk of travel to that country. A Travel Warning is also issued when the U.S. Government’s ability to assist American citizens is constrained due to the closure of an embassy or consulate or because of a drawdown of its staff.

Snow forecasted for Boulder; city snow season reminders
With snow predicted for this week, the City of Boulder would like to remind residents of snow removal requirements and provide some tips that will help everyone have a safe winter season.
Prompt removal of snow from sidewalks is important because it helps facilitate safe pedestrian travel in adverse weather conditions. Many people rely on sidewalks to conduct their daily affairs and virtually every trip, even those by car, includes some walking, so it’s important that sidewalks are cleared of snow in a timely manner.
While the forecast does not call for significant accumulation, Boulder residents, property owners, tenants and landlords should be aware of recent changes to the city’s sidewalk snow removal requirements (Boulder Revised Code, Section 8-2-13):
All snow and ice must be cleared from the full width of all sidewalks adjacent to properties by noon the day following a snow storm;
- If the snowstorm ends prior to 5 a.m., sidewalks must be cleared by noon that day;
- If the snowstorm ends after 5 a.m., sidewalks must be cleared by noon the following day.
For people who are physically unable to clear snow from their sidewalks, the ICEBUSTERS program may help pair them with someone who can help. Volunteers are also needed to help with the program. To volunteer or learn more, contact the Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) at 303-443-1933 or E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
To report sidewalk snow removal violations, visit www.bouldercolorado.gov/ezeo and use the “Report a Violation” form, or contact the Environmental and Zoning Enforcement Office at 303-441-3239. The city will post information on snow removal deadlines on its “Winter Tips” website, visit www.bouldercolorado.gov and select “Winter Tips” to learn more.
Failure to remove snow before the deadline may result in a summons and/or an abatement process. Each property will only receive one warning per snow season before the abatement process begins. A warning does not have to be issued in order for a Code Enforcement Officer to issue a summons. Abatement includes the use of a private snow removal contractor to clear the sidewalks. The property owner will be charged a $50 administrative fee along with the contractor’s fee for removing the snow. If a summons is issued, the maximum fine is $1,000 and 90 days in jail as determined by the municipal judge. The fine for a first time offense is $100.
During a snowstorm, it’s important that area motorists use caution and be aware of other drivers, pedestrians and bicyclists. Here are a few tips on safely navigating city streets during a snowfall:
Slow down on ice and snow, and allow for more stopping distance (It takes 3 to 12 times more distance to stop on icy and/or snowy roads)
- Snow plows are wider than one lane, so give them plenty of room to operate
- Teach children to be extra careful around traffic
- When behind a de-icing material spreading truck, try to stay three to four car lengths behind to allow for adequate stopping distance.
To report icy or dangerous roadway conditions, contact the city’s snow dispatch line during normal business hours at 303-413-7109, or after hours at 303-413-7177.

Some social media snobs have been blogging about how twitter did not help help evacuations of the Four Mile Fire here in Boulder. We won’t mention their names except to say “grow up”. Here at Boulder Channel 1 news we heard from numerous people stranded by the fire, some who didn’t know there was a fire, some who were looking for evac routes. Our phone and email were a constant in the first hours by people in the fire zone. We co ordinated with city and county information officers to help people.
We were not just sitting by the scanner…… We were actually trying to help people get out and in many cases did. But this was through the use of twitter to mobile devices to folks in Sunshine Canyon and on Sugar Loaf….. With 911 lines jammed and OEM lines jammed we were a source of information. Twitter was a communications vehicle that was up and running while everything else was failing including reverse 911…. so while certain SM brats are out finding them selves and former news hacks play online, we take our responsibility DEAD SERIOUS in time of crisis. to us it isn’t about SM. It is about our town and being of service to those in need right now. In the early hours when lives were at stake; myself, Ron Baird and Donna Marek worked hard to get out information to residents of the foot hills. we knew we were faster that TV or print and that time was of the essence. There were lives on the line and Twitter did absolutely make a difference. All those who retweeted vital information helped more than you’ll know. But I wanted you to know just how critical thing were and if we helped ONE PERSON get out we did our jobs….. all of us…… you Twitter.
