Sure, I love my Canon printers. Even the non-techies among us can use them, and if you can’t, they have excellent customer support. I should know: this summer the kind folks at Canon have had to help me install my printer drivers for two printers on three different occasions, as I dealt with computer issues.
Sometimes it isn’t always a great product or great service that makes me like a company. Sometimes it’s what the company does.
In this case, it’s Yellowstone.
Yellowstone National Park is one of my favorite places. I’ve been going there since I was a kid. Thanks to Canon USA, I can go there every day via the webcam service they sponsor.
Every day I get to smile and enjoy Yellowstone, from Old Faithful to Mammoth to Lake Yellowstone.
I don’t get paid to promote Canon, or to tell people what I like. I can say that people always look at the bad things in life, forgetting that there are more people, and businesses, who take the ‘bad’ out of things every day. I’m happy they are there, building community, one person, one business, one national park at a time.
Sure wish I’d known about the Yellowstone webcam before I bought my digital camera. I’d have bought a Canon. You can bet I’ll always look there first next time I’m buying something. Just because they offered not just something I like in a webcam service, not just because they were smart about advertising (sure, they’ll get business just because they sponsor things like this), but because sometimes selling is about service. And having some fun while we’re all at it.
And thanks to the people who maintain the webcam and keep it up for all of us.
