And since you can't get them anymore, just like anything else that becomes scarce, a "cult" group springs up to collect and restore them.

One interesting one is to bet against teams who play at home at Thanksgiving. It sounds counterintuitive, but those on the road are away from family and can just focus on the game. Nick Goff: Long weeks and short weeks are the first thing for me.
American Football is more physically testing than most other mainstream sports. If you play in the Thursday night game you have four days extra rest for your next game than the teams who play Monday night. Jesse May: I always try and discern where the public money might go. It usually happens with quarterbacks. The more they talk about Tom Brady, the more you need to be laying the Patriots. So there you have it folks, the experts have spoken.

On the same day as England's cricketers take on South Africa in the fourth Test match of the summer, Nottingham Forest will take on Millwall and Sunderland will face Derby County.

For the second season running the clear favourite for the title is a newly-relegated team from the North East. Boro are 3-1 for automatic promotion and the signs are promising. They have "a squad that will surely challenge for automatic promotion". So who can challenge them. But they are still 3-1 for automatic promotion. Fulham are 9-2 to finish in the top two and 11-4 to be promoted. But they need to find some firepower.Just ask me When you eat at a restaurant, the waiter will ask you whether you like the food.
Email follow-ups Get customer email addresses at the point of purchase, even if you sell stock offline. Likewise Amazon email me every time I buy something to ask if I would like to leave feedback. Make reviews count Another thing Amazon does well is to use my reviews to recommend other products that I may like in the future.
Focus groups Before going to market with a product, bringing together a focus group is an essential step for gathering feedback. Create a 'reviewographic' Collect data from customers and turn it into graphs and data sets to show on an Infographic. Here's an example of all the aggregated reviews on Yelp that you could do on a smaller scale: 6. Create comparison charts Run a poll across your site to get customer feedback and then add this data into a comparison so people can see how you stack up against competitors.
A good example is: Anti-Spyware Reviews 7. Add reviews to your website An obvious step, but one that is missed a lot. Link to external reviews from your website I've written reviews before simply because I wanted to get either a tweet or a link from a major company to my own blog and I'm sure I can't be the first person to do this. Incentivise me In other words, give me your product for free so I can write about it.
Free samples I could talk forever about the benefits of free stuff (and usually do). The more people trying and testing your product the more chance you'll have of reviews.
Offer trial versions Likewise if you allow people to test your service for a short amount of time, or let them try a simpler version of your product at a cheaper or freemium price, it gets more people discussing your product. Contact details For offline products, that can't reach their customers after a sale has been made, make it as easy as possible for customers to get in touch with you.
Referral offers Having people review your product earns you a silver medal, but having people bring you extra sales is the only way to get gold. Get profiles Consider the places your customers would go online to write reviews (or cheat and search for where your competitors have them) and make sure you have a profile on that site. Snag local profiles Get local listings on Yelp, Qype, Brownbook and more. Stickers Qype, Ciao and other review websites have stickers that brands can display in their store, and badges they can use on websites that ask people to review the product.
