google-devilHere is a tale of woe that can affect you - sent from John Schulz, a friend and past co-worker in Northern Colorado.  From the Greeley Tribune (note - the link to the article no longer exists, but the story is still worth sharing).

"Direct from England, the Boultons came to Greeley to enjoy retirement and run an inn.

In August 2010, they took over the long-struggling Sodbuster Inn at 1221 9th Ave . It got them to Colorado, which they loved; it gave them steady income, which they also loved — without the hassle of the corporate world, which they no longer loved.

And they did well. So well, the Sodbuster Inn quickly became everything they wanted. They had a good inn, a website and they had reservations. Guests were raving.

“We had the most phenomenal summer,” Stephanie Boulton said of 2012.

Then, Aug. 1, the phone stopped ringing. They thought nothing of it. It was the end of the summer traveling season, after all.

Then September. Still, no calls. Something was obviously wrong.

They learned they weren’t getting bookings from their website. So they Googled their site and found it buried at the bottom of page 7 of their search — the kiss of death."

“For us, the web is our shop window,” Stephanie said. “That’s our bricks and mortar.”

hutzlergirlI have a pet rock, in the original box. I have a pair of Kelso Earth Shoes in the back of my closet. Roberta and I even have a very nice Kitchen Aide mixer which we use regularly, but until recently, my life is was yet complete - I did not have a Hutzler 571B.

The 20-person Hutzler Manufacturing Company has many products, primarily plastic kitchen utensils and food handling products.  The model 571B is said to "Slice an entire banana in one quick motion. Safe and fun for children. Dishwasher safe."

As of January 15 (2013), it was the #2 selling product in Amazon's "Mandolin and Slicers" category per a recent Businessweek article (update - it has since fallen to #97 in the category - fame is fleeting).  It is a hit on Pinterest and a darling the literati. Hundreds of people offer suggestions for the next product release, to be called either the Hutzler 571C or the 572.

How did this $1.29 plastic slicer become a top banana? It is truly a social media success story, even if it came as a complete surprise to Hutzler Manufacturing.
