Taxi With a Twist at Guadalajara

June 9, 2012

Hi Everyone,

As you may know I’m in the process of writing a book with the tentative title of “How to Live a Caviar Lifestyle on a Tuna Fish Pension at Safe, Beautiful, and Affordable lake Chapala, Mexico.”

I expect it to be out in the first quarter of 2013. I can hardly wait.

In the meantime I’ve been studying publicty because I want to get the book into as many hands as possible.

So, the video below caught my eye as it’s a clever way to get the word out about a particular product.
Watch the short entertaining video I call a “Taxi with a Twist”.
Then, see if you can figure out what product the video is designed to hype.

I’ll post the product name later in the comments section if no one else beats me to it.

    Congratulations to Geoff & Lorna Rooper who sent me the correct answer. The correct answer is Trident Twist Chewing Gum.

    I’m learning that publicity is a bit crazy, What does this hot-rod taxi  have in common with the Trident Twist Gum?

    I guess they are both “cool”. Live and learn. I guess anything to get us all talking about their product… and it worked because here we are talking about it.

    Who knows mabe the fact that’s were talking about it here will generate some link backs to our member site.

    Tu amigo, Sid

    Hi Sid,  I guess Trident chewing gum can also be used as emergency brakes for this taxi…. May I suggest social media like Facebook for your publicity. It is free and very effective. Everybody is into it. Can’t wait for the book to come out!

    Hi Friend, Thanks for your thoughts. Yes, I’ll be using Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Book Signings, a book website,
    plugs on my radio show (ChapalaClub Radio on, as a guest on Talk Radio Shows and TV shows, etc.

    Thanks again, The book is now in editing, just one of many steps a book must go through if your serious about producing a good book.

    Tu amigo, Sid
