Reaching Out One Blog Post at a Time

Today marks a big day here in Salsa land. Today we flip the switch and allow folks to comment on our Salsa Amigo's blog posts. Comments allow folks to share ideas, opinions, ask questions, and give honest direct feedback. Blog junkies are probably thinking "What? This is no big deal". You are right, but humor us anyway and read on. Adding comments is a big step for us.

As we roll out this new functionality on our site, I want to be clear about our intentions.

1) Interact with our customers. Customers are our ultimate stakeholders. Customers buy our products and keep those of us involved with Salsa employed. Allowing comments on our blog allow us to ask questions and get honest feedback from folks that I hope are interested in our brand.

2) Have fun. We all need more of this. May sound a little like marketing since our motto is Ride & Smile, but it's true, most of us probably need a little more fun in our lives.

3) Try something new. I can't remember who said "If you do the same thing over and over again without changing, what results are you expecting?" Somebody did and it?s true. If you don't try something new every now and then, you just might not reach your full potential.

What does this all mean? Well, we want you to be part of Salsa. Join us often and share in our adventures, our search for the best recipes, our quest for producing the finest products, and ultimately, share in our invitation to have more fun and remember what is important.

Some of you may be wondering, "Will this work?" Well, we're about to find out! Seriously though, we are committed to this endeavor.

So my request today to each of you is this. Take action and post a comment. Let us know what you think, good or bad? Let us know what blogs and websites you read? Heck, post a link to your own blog because I'm a junkie and need to find some new reading material for those nights and mornings I can't sleep.

Thanks for reading and taking part in our experiment.

Ride and Smile,

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jason Boucher

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.

Hey guys the complete bikes look awesome. I have but one comment - frames this cool (on the 700c side of things) are just screaming to get spec’d with campy, feel the awesomeness. MMM salsa and campy (it would be like have some nice chips to scoop up the salsa with mmmmm.)

Yeah for comments!<BR>Can we also get an RSS feed so we know when there’s a new post?

We are checking on that now.  Hopefully in the not too distant future.

Kudos to your bold move. I know companies and corporations are very wary of “opening the doors” but I think it’ll only propel Salsa to newer heights. <BR><BR>Well, you probably already know about my blog, but for those who do not and check this out, it’s http://www.g-tedproductions.blogspot.com <BR><BR>Welcome to the “blogosphere”! :)

Nice… Thanks for opening the Amigos blog up to comments!  I think it’s a great idea.<BR><BR>BTW—Salsa Dos Niners finished first in both the men’s and women’s solo classes at the 12 Hours of Lake Manawa this past weekend.  Check out http://www.mtbomaha.blogspot.com/ for details.<BR><BR>Cheers,<BR>MG

Sweet! Nice to see the comments up and running. I think this will be great for you all to get feed back after Interbike (good and bad) not that you would get any bad, right? ;) <BR><BR>Jason

Hi Mom, <BR><BR>Sorry I don’t call more often.  <BR><BR>I appreciate you opening public dialog, it shows you have faith in your stuff.  I have a couple of sets of delgado’s one set on my cross bike and a disk set on my recently built Mamasita.  So far, they are all bueno. <BR><BR>No more time to chat, going riding.
