Next week is Halloween.
In many places, there will be no costumed children going door-to-door for sweets. Instead they’ll hit malls, church parking lot “trunk or treat” events, or another alternative. Like the candy sold in stores, Halloween has been shrunk down and packaged for our safety.

Our Social, Silver Surfers research revealed two areas that spook the very consumers we hope to enchant on our websites.
Today we went live on Amazon and iBooks with the latest e-book in our "Social, Silver Surfers" study of Boomers' and seniors' digital marketing preferences.
This one-of-a-kind proprietary national study of 40+ers began in 2010. That first Social, Silver Surfers effort resulted in a small PDF that captured what older adults like / don’t like about websites and social media. Creating Results repeated and expanded our research in 2013, this time publishing an Amazon e-book which captures the data and related marketing recommendations.
The most important result, however, has been the improved effectiveness of our client’s digital marketing programs.
We’ve also received positive feedback from those who are targeting Baby Boomers and seniors in a variety of industries. These marketing pros tell us their ROI improved by applying the tips from Social, Silver Surfers.
That motivated us to go even further with this new e-book.
