A recent marketing trend has launched in a unique direction.

In many problems in life and business choices must be made In the information technology world it's called an IF/THEN statement

This technique makes use of decision outcome branching. If you choose A over B then C occurs. But if you choose B over A then D will occur. When you add more letters (decision nodes) you can get exponential answers.

The results, depending on the number of choices and subsequent choices, can stretch into the hundreds, thousands or more.

The marketing tactic has-been kicked off in the food industry. Eat This not That is the caption. You are given a choice of healthy greens opposed to peas sautéed in salt and sugar spiced prepared foods like buttered peas.

Other comparisons are high calorific pies vs a healthy carrot cake or banana bread. Jams vs tomato sauce and so forth.

The tactic has also been used in choosing restaurants. Some Mexican fast-food places like Baja Fresh offer a lot of salad and cut lemons and limes. This is run against the standard unhealthy choice of a big box Mexican Chain like Chevy's which serves high calorific tortilla fat and chase laden entrees!

Other big names are also mentioned as well as products they serve. cut fruit vs pies, melons vs meringues etc.

The result is a successful marketing direction to healthier choice options. A goal we are all seeking! Information at the following link for your selective interest.

It took me 3 months to find the right theme. I actually paid for a pro theme 2 months ago and have since deleted it. It had 14 plugins and rated the worst for speed. The themes were by far my biggest problem
