Is it protected to believe that you've have been to a Starbucks, and are familiar with beside the omnipresent achromatic cup next to the circular verdant logotype on it? Somewhere on that cup is their web address: . How several of you have been to starbucks.com? The effect is almost ever "none." The deficient few that have are checking the match on their Starbucks Card. Most have ne'er even detected the web computer address on the cup (this is Starbucks' first misunderstanding). It would be a not dangerous bet that smaller number than .01% of their loyal trade have ever been to their website. 1000's of general stores and stick to a million albescent cup holders both day. If I am right, it's a laughable trueness.
How oodles white cups are brought rear to work, to be leftmost honourable inches from a keyboard, and the website ignored?
