Mayhem Marketing’s first goal is to achieve the holy grail of marketing… “First, You Must Get Their Attention.” The old time circuses knew that if you walk an elephant down main-street with an advertising sign draped over its back you would get people to talk about your up coming show.

While it might not be practical for your business to hire an elephant to get your message across what can you do to achieve the same effect. You need to get your message out you must put your marketing message in front of as many people as possible and make sure your message is very memorable and do that task as often as you possible can.

The last time you had business cards printed how many did you have printed? The bigger and more important question is how long ago was that and how many of those little advertisements do you have left? Why aren’t you handing out more business cards every day? You must take your business elephant for a walk every day!

Made In The USA – Justin Carriage Works

We have spent some time warning about those folks that don’t update their business and have used the term Buggy Whip to mean a bit out of touch.  This week’s “Made In The U.S.A.” business feels right at home with the “Buggy Whip” and then some.

Herb Andler, founded Justin Carriage Works in Nashville, Michigan in 1974. Andler raised Morgan horses, the kind that pulled carriages back in the real horse-and-buggy days. One by one, he bought about a half-dozen vintage buggies and carriages for his horses, but he couldn't hang on to them. People kept saying, "I'll buy that horse if you sell me that buggy." Andler the entrepreneur got to thinking, quit his job at an auto plant, and hitched his future to horse carriages. His father thought he was crazy. "He just about came unglued," Andler says. "[He said,] 'What the hell is wrong with your head, boy? They don't use horse buggies anymore.' But fortunately, he lived long enough to see it grow into what it was, and he was pretty proud of me."

Andler now has 13 employees, and he struggles to keep up with orders for about 30 carriages per year. He's filled orders from Disney, parent company of, and built models that ride through New York's Central Park. Currently, he's working on three chariots he will ship to New Orleans for singer Harry Connick Jr. "I've never been caught up," he says. "In fact, we're just getting ready to build some for Donald Trump out there at that casino" in Atlantic City.

"Probably the most rewarding thing about this business has been the people I've gotten to meet," he says.

Andler doesn't duplicate old-fashioned methods of production. Rather than making each carriage from scratch out of wood and lacquer, he builds rough wooden prototypes of custom orders, such as the Connick model, and then casts molds from which he can fabricate fiberglass parts. Afterward, the carriage can be mass-produced and becomes part of Andler's ever-expanding line.

His most popular models are his "Limited Edition" carriage and hearses. "Hearses are hot," he says. "Here's my logic for that: The people who are of dying age now are the people who were alive during the horse-and-buggy era."

So if you are looking for some “old time” craftsmanship this is a place to checkout.  Of course if you looking to hitch your horse to then by all means this is the right place.  They even have units you can tow behind your motorcycle. Their website deserves your looking at it very soon.
