Why Online Marketing is so Important!

Hey Neighbors!

I have been thinking alot lately about how important it is that companies and businesses use online marketing.  Obviously I am a little biased, because what I do here is a form of online marketing for companies, but honestly, just how important is online marketing?  To me it has become more important, because the first place I look for a restaurant, bookstore, even Thrift store while traveling is online.  I immediately Google to find out what is available, but I also Google to get more information about a business.  I check for customer feedback because that will tell me about their business and their practices.  I definitely prefer to shop where I have already heard good about the business.

I have also personally been able to help promote small businesses, that would otherwise not be known.. In one instance we were out visiting yard sales, when I came across a lady who made jewelry.  I was able to tell her what I did and she immediately volunteered for a review.  She had attended a few local shows, and had family and friends that ordered from her up to this point.  She gave me a couple of pieces of her jewelry for review, and also gave me a pair of earrings for a giveaway.  Through one post she was able to reach hundreds of people that she never would have reached.  She only had a Facebook page at the time, and was looking into starting her own website.  Internet marketing helped her and she realized how many more people she could reach.

Online marketing is a way to reach more people, faster, and see more results.  Today we are becoming a nation of technology.  Just this evening while some friends were over visiting, 5-7 of us were online at one point.  Most people own at least one laptop, iPod, iPad, etc, where they have access to the internet.  I no longer check newspaper ads, I look online.  If a company does not advertise online, I may never hear of them.  Online marketing is an important tool for today's businesses.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
