Let The Internet Marketing Experts Help Your Business Grow

I always read about the importance of internet marketing in managing a business nowadays.  What exactly is internet marketing?  Let's say, you have the greatest product and the best people running your business.  If you think this are enough to bring success to your business, well, think again.  There are other factors that need to be considered in running a successful business.  One is a good marketing strategy and that is search engine optimization or seo.  

Nowadays, most people rely on the internet for anything they need.  I do most of my shopping online and if I need anything, there is always Google and other search engines to resort to.  Traveling for me has never been so easy with the use of Google Maps.  Just type in the address and voila!  You get the direction that will help you get to your destination.  When I need something, I just search for it and I get the list of what I am looking for in seconds.  I only look at the first page most of the time and I guess most people do.  It is therefore important to get your business on top of the list through good online marketing tools and strategies or else you will be left behind by your leading counterparts.  

This is where a reputable internet marketing company like OrangeSoda comes in.  OrangeSoda has been noted for helping small businesses become visible to their intended customers.  People need to see your business on top of the list when they search for it in any search engine.  This will bring traffic to your site which brings potential sales that translate into profits.  If you are looking for the experts in internet marketing that are more than happy to help you in making your business a success, try OrangeSoda and see your business grow!

I am participating in a blogger campaign by Bucks2Blog and was compensated.  However, the views and opinions are my own.

I voted for Jessica!

Just like last week, I voted again for Jessica Sanchez simply because I want to show my support for her.  I admit, she may not be the greatest among the remaining contestants in American Idol but any of them is deserving to be the big winner and it is the people's votes that count.  I voted online last week but tonight I am voting through telephone call.  So anyone out there who are watching American Idol, cast your votes for the one you think would be the best to win.  Let us vote! Good luck to all of us!
If you miss tonight's show, here is Jessica's rendition of "Dance with my Father Again".

Getting Down and Dirty

I work in oil paints, on greasy cars and in the kitchen on a regular basis. I get dirty. There are some simple solutions that will help you clean up after a productive day and not worry about making a mess while in the thick of it.

Get the right clothes
I suggest staying cheap and wearing old clothes you don’t care about whenever you are doing anything messy. You may think that you are careful and won’t get anything on you but you’d be wrong. You will get something on you that won’t come out. An old pair of torn Levis that you don’t care about is great but if you want to take it to the next step, I suggest medical scrubs. They are cheap, washable and disposable. They also come in countless designs. If you want to work in the garage and still rep your favorite sports team without ruining that vintage jersey then find their logo on a set of scrubs uniforms. I promise you that they are out there.

Get the right soap
After a day of working on a new oil painting I am caked in thick, oily, dry paint that refuses to budge off my hands. You can pour mineral spirits on your hands but I don’t suggest ever doing that, let alone on a regular basis. Find Gojo. It’s a mildly abrasive hand cleaner that smells like oranges and cuts through the toughest gunk in a heartbeat. It’s a little rough on your hands for daily use but it’s great for once in a while. I don’t suggest using it on polished surfaces or anything you are worry about scratching up. It is abrasive.

Have a designated working area
Whether it’s a specific room in your house or just your garage, you should keep messy work to one area and take the precautions you need to ensure that you don’t ruin your floor. In a garage, it’s not that big of a deal but you should still keep tarps and oil absorbing materials around to take care of those spills. Keep a hamper in the work area for your nasty scrubs so they don’t get mixed in with the normal laundry and mess up that vintage jersey or new dress you’ll be kicking yourself over for years.

Comparisons for everything

Content by Mitch Osborne

When my friend told me she was considering using Cable TV instead of DirectTV, I made her look at this website, It breaks down all the information between the two types of TV services, even with price information, which I found to be really useful. The pricing included how man channels you could get for the specific price packages and how much you would pay on a monthly basis. The one thing my husband was all about on the website was the breakdown on Cable TV sports channels versus Direct TV. I think after he saw the number of channels he could get, like Sunday Ticket, ESPN Full Court and ESPN Game Plan, he was all for switching out TV service provider. The website really shows that Direct TV has strong offerings in every area and for prices that were not hard to manage at all. I wish all services were this easy to compare. Maybe there are similar sources to compare other services. It would be awesome to have an app for my phone that would let me do these types of comparisons for everything!

Chocolate Hills

I was amazed by the spectacular view of the famous Chocolate Hills in Bohol in the Philippines. I have been dreaming to see this place since I was a kid and I am so glad and privileged to have seen it finally.  To me, they look like those kisses chocolates especially when they no longer look as green.  Visit Bohol if you get a chance because there are so many great places and things to do there.
