The most frequently asked question on this site is about the name. What is Howdiddle?
A quick story to set the stage.
When I was a kid my mom would walk in the house and yell “Hooowwwdiddle” at the top of her lungs and our job was to reply with a very loud “Howdiddle!” so she would know who else was in the house, sort of like a roll call. (it always freaked out any friends who were over to play!) She actually yelled “How are ya?” the first time, but it sounded like Howdiddle, so then she just started yelling that instead.
We never let the limits of the dictionary define our vocabulary. (Mom wants me to point out that she does not curse!) After a while it was just a common word in our family vocabulary. Feel free to try it out next time you walk in the house.
(I wonder if Sergey or Larrys mom ever yelled “GOOGLE” when she got home?)
Why did I chose to use this name?
There are a few reasons I chose to use moms word. First of all in my vocabulary it is a exclamation that grabs peoples attention, that is important for marketing. My goal is to gather attention around you company online.
Second, is the HOW part how Howdiddle. I want to help you understand HOW to market online, HOW to increase your revenue and HOW to automate you sales systems.
