A baby makes noise to get his parents' attention.
A teenager makes noise by getting angry, perhaps acting out and slamming doors.
Your boss makes noise by standing over your desk and telling you in no uncertain terms that your work is flagging and there are younger people just waiting to take your place.
A politician makes noise by appearing at every public function he can as well as appearing on numerous TV shows.
But what noise does your bowling center make? Is the click of your computer putting out another "selly -sell" Facebook post or email loud enough for people to hear?
What about the noise you didn't make on Halloween by organizing a parade in your home town.
Or the fund raising and volunteer event you are trying to organize this Holiday season for homeless people?
Or maybe its the Thanksgiving promotion that will offer a "price special" (yippee) that will land like a thud without making any noise?
There are a lot of ways to make noise; you just have to be creative and think about it.
But if its not on your radar, you're going to miss the opportunity to get your name in lights and your center onto people's "choice lists."
And there are allot more entertainment choices (and competition) than ever before.
So c'mon, speak up.
Your potential customers may have forgotten you are there.
