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.

The above image shows the last 100 visitors on WhiteRockBeach.ca

Virtual Edge Communications & WhiteRockBeach.ca are excited the visitors to our site have been increasing daily. The above map shows the last 100 visitors to the site. 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.


If we can put White Rock Beach on the map, just imagine what we can do for you.
Through our parent company (the people that own all the toys we use), Virtual Edge Communications, we offer website design, digital photography, and digital video with professional titling and special effects. With our writing/editing/design services we offer the following: press releases, brochures, flyers, manuals/reports, newsletters, eBooks, resumes, and cover letters. We don’t simply cater to large companies; small businesses or even individuals wanting exposure can use our services.

We shoot more than just pretty sunrises and sunsets.

We photograph just about everything!

An AMAZING IDEA – FREE PARKING without losing any parking revenue and increasing business

Knowing  you might be able to recoup some or ALL of the money you spent on parking would be an AMAZING promotion to BRING people to the beach. Restaurants (or other businesses) could promote “Come and enjoy the beach on US” (normal rate $1.50 / $3.00 per hour depending on the season). Enjoy your dinner gathering with friends by using your parking receipt as a coupon (see our site for details). This discount would only apply for people who mention the discount and present their current parking receipt; limit of one discount per table. Residents with parking passes would not have a parking receipt, unless they have stayed more than 4 hours. If people do not mention the promotion, they do not get the discount. 

If the city was to print a QR code and website (theirs or ours) on the parking receipt (on the front, or pre-printed on the back), visitors could check online to see who offers a discount or is willing to accept the parking receipt as a coupon. Participating retailers would need to have their own terms and conditions on their own site. The site listed on the receipt or linked from the QR code would just offer simple links to businesses offering a discount – very little maintenance – JUST A LINK. This is something the city should offer for FREE to businesses with valid White Rock business and/or Artist Walk licences.

 The parking receipt would need to have the CURRENT date and time to be accepted (up to individual business owners).  

For example: the White Rock Beach Gallery – would offer a free postcard ($1.75 value) if someone mentions the discount and presents a current parking receipt and purchases 3 postcards for $5. Ric Wallace would even accept the parking receipt – up to 3 hours, for a discount totalling $12 (summer time rate) on a 16″ x 20″ canvas print or larger. Other discounts could be offered and easily changed by the participating business. 

Hair salons or spas uptown could even offer to accept PAST parking receipts as a way to help people enjoy our AMAZING waterfront & beach for FREE by using their services. 
How many parking recipients (possible coupons) are printed each day? Why has no one previously come up with this AMAZING IDEA? Ric Wallace is claiming bragging rights on this idea, just like registering WhiteRockBeach.ca.

If you like this idea, let the local paper, politicians, and city hall know. If you don’t like the idea simply close your browser window.

Just to be clear: the businesses would set the terms and conditions and the value of the discount offered. This information would be listed on their own websites. The paid parking receipt would contain a QR code/web address linking to a listing of retailers offering a discount.

ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

City of White Rock elected officials should LOVE this AMAZING STATEMENT.
ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

Long Story Short


We want people and businesses to flood social media with photos of all the AMAZING things White Rock & area has to offer or can be found here using the hashtag #amazingwhiterock. We encourage businesses to reward people for posting photos and comments to social media of what they feel is AMAZING. If lots of businesses get on board – one really COOL SNAP SHOT on Twitter and/or Instagram and Facebook, etc, you could get many rewards from a variety of businesses (potential rewards – coffee, gift, discount, service). AMAZING White Rock will be offering many other ideas to help support the White Rock business community.  Ric Wallace has some other ideas he is willing to share with local businesses – like his Amazing White Rock Wall Art idea – on how they can boost their IMAGE and that of White Rock, in turn, attracting more customers. Long story below.


If you LOVE White Rock and are a PHOTO SNAPPER (professional photographers included) or SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE and do not have a business (business owners who are not AMAZING White Rock Business Partners are also welcome to become just friends), but like to take photos and have a smart phone or tablet with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media, you can help by using the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.

If you LOVE White Rock and are a PHOTO SNAPPER (professional photographers included) or SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE and do not have a business (business owners who are not AMAZING White Rock Business Partners are also welcome to become just friends), but like to take photos and have a smart phone or tablet with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media, you can help by using the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.

#AMAZINGWHITEROCK

We would like our AMAZING White Rock Business Partners to reward you for your efforts, in turn THANKING you for a few clicks, a photo and taps on your device. This is an idea under development to get businesses on board to get you FREE STUFF. Posting a pic and using the hashtag #amazingwhiterock will help get the attention of potential business partners, who may choose to offer prizes to people posting photos they like. For example: If your photo shows up on Instagram –   Twitter – or Facebook and they like what you posted – you could WIN. Any business could offer this even without being connected to us (without paying or owing us – FREE IDEA). As long as the photos are taken in White Rock and your posting has the hashtag #amazingwhiterock, feel free to post pics of sunrises, sunsets, the pier, the FAMOUS WHITE ROCK, your dog walking on the sidewalk, selfies with your friends, food & drink, classic cars on Marine Drive, etc. If your photos impress a local business, they could direct message you to offer you a reward (this is up to them, not to us).

A site to promote the AMAZING THINGS about White Rock & Area, British Columbia to the WORLD. YES we do have things to BRAG about, and with a visit to White Rock you will see FIRST HAND why. WARNING: You may want to stay and not go home (this happened to Ric Wallace – he never left).

The idea for the site came from being an Artist Walk ARTographer (The White Rock Beach Gallery) where Ric Wallace was and is  MARKETING* (not selling) his postcards, greeting cards, photo prints, magnets, canvas prints, acrylic prints to local residents and tourists. The most used word by visitors was AMAZING. You have AMAZING postcards, AMAZING greeting cards, AMAZING photos, AMAZING weather, AMAZING  sunsetsAMAZING  sunrisesetc.

People think it was AMAZING Ric Wallace was able to register the domain WhiteRockBeach.ca for $10,45 and it was not taken already. And the list goes on and on.

Listening to the visitors coming to White Rock Beach has inspired many of the 101+ White Rock Beach postcards & other products. Simply asking people where they come from has helped Ric learn from people’s first-hand experiences what they buy or are attracted to – by age, gender, nationality, country, etc. Ric Wallace has valuable marketing information not available to others. Also, by being a GOODWILL Ambassador for White Rock at the waterfront helps us collect valuable information; we do not get this information from the many stores that sell our products – just what has sold.

 

Ric Wallace has even walked all the streets in White Rock & South Surrey and has even taken the title Mr White Rock & the Postcard King– LOL.

AMAZING Sunsets, AMAZING Sunrises, AMAZING Food, AMAZING Ice Cream (see below), AMAZING Accommodations, AMAZING Weather, AMAZING Artists, AMAZING Postcards, AMAZING Greeting Cards, AMAZING Shops, AMAZING Services, an AMAZING Place to LIVE or VISIT. We are the ONLY city in Canada to have a Lucky Coin® – A local White Rock resident holds the Canadian Trademark. The movie Best of Luck had scenes filmed at the AMAZING White Rock Pier. White Rock is an AMAZING filming location. YES, if you had to use one word to describe White Rock – AMAZING would be it.

The visitors to The White Rock Beach Gallery coined the phrase AMAZING.
Ric Wallace (AKA Mr White Rock) was apparently the only one listening. He registered the domain AmazingWhiteRock.com and created the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.
He also registered WhiteRockBeach.ca and a few others.

WANTED: BUSINESS PARTNERS looking to
increase SALES and TOURISM at the same time.

INCREASED TOURISM = $ $ $
for your business and others!

We plan on working with one or two businesses at a time.
ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!
