What is “The Virtual Edge?” Simply put… Your Unfair Advantage

What is “The Virtual Edge?”

Simply put…

Your Unfair Advantage

No matter what kind of business you have – big or small – you can get the unfair advantage we refer to as The Virtual Edge over competing businesses. We consider business a game and we play to WIN, in turn generating business for our clients. In business there are usually other companies wanting the same thing. We like to use the analogy of a sled dog team. There can only be one lead dog, as the other dogs are only following the lead. We like the lead dog view as he can see everything – the others are simply looking at dog BUTT.

Visit VirtualEdge.ca for more information and contact info. We cater to businesses worldwide. If you are in Newfoundland, Ontario, California, New Zealand — NO PROBLEM, we are only a click or email away.

We even have visitors from Canada’s other coast on the Atlantic Ocean, in St John’s, wanting to see what is going on in White Rock Beach in beautiful British Columbia. Another site we run had over 500,000 visitors last year and recently as many as 14,000 visitors in a 3-day period. On WhiteRockBeach.ca we are logging visitors from Argentina, New Zealand, Sweden, Japan, etc.

The #WhiteRockBeach #Gallery THEN and NOW

mr-whiterock-620White Rock Beach Gallery founder ARTographer Ric Wallace shares some photos of how his galleries have evolved since spring 2015.wr-gallery-waterfrontThis was an early setup of the Now Famous White Rock Beach Gallery 2015. I had never set up one of these tents before. Things learned since then, dealing with wind from the ocean and trains. Noise of the trains, I NOW bring hearing protection. The above display stands are not practical for waterfront display use. The above setup has only one 24″ x 48″ table.

WRBG-01

The above setup summer of 2016, FIVE – 24″ x 48″ tables are used, with rubber top mats to stop things from being blown away. Tables are leveled using customized hockey pucks and wood spacers. Custom-made postcard and greeting card pockets are mounted to tables and the poles of the tent. The tent was modified to allow it to support horizontal poles on the back and left side. Sixty pounds of ankle weights on the front poles help stabilize the tent in windy conditions. On display are postcards, greeting cards, magnets, 6″ x 8″ and 8″ x 10″ prints, 16″ x 20″ canvas prints, 20″ x 28″ acrylic prints, framed prints and magnets. Magnet boards are placed on the table to help create a wall of products. Many of the products are also online for sale on WhiteRockBeach.ca. You can see an archive of some of my Instagram post photos here (BEST displayed on a computer):

Below is early spring 2016 with FOUR – 24″ x 48″ tables making a perfect 6-foot square, with a hole in the center allowing 4 picture easels. Postcard and greeting card pockets mount to tables, allowing boxes and other items to be stored below neatly. People can walk completely around the display. An industrial designer visiting White Rock Beach was very impressed with the display setup; he stopped by to talk and see how it was set up.
