More Information More Choices You Win
Everyone seems to be in competition for everyone's business these days. Insurance companies, hospitals, doctors, cell phone companies, and even phone directory companies seem to put forth every effort to get us to use their goods and services.
I noticed a new ad on a billboard in town last week. It was for the
We all use a phone book from time to time. We pick it up, look up a number, and find the number. We put the book, real or fake, back where it came from. What more information is in there? What can we possibly win, other than finding the number we were looking for in the first place?
