Football season has gone into full swing, and with that, I decided to look at new options for watching football games. On my local television channels, I can only see a few games, while the others are only shown in highlight clips, or at best, the last few minutes of the games are shown. On cable, which is what I was using, there were more games to see thanks to the extra sports channels, but I still couldn’t see all of them without paying extra for the sports package. The DirecTV pricing plans were far more attractive for the average sports watcher.
DirecTV has sports packages as well, but they don’t cost nearly as much as they do on cable. Every year it seems like cable is trying to milk more money from its customers, and the prices for their services get higher and higher. The sports package prices go up with everything else, and the only real way to get a discount on them is to be a new user, as they usually get a free year or at least a reduced price. Since I had been using cable for 4 years, I would’t have been able to get the discounts.
I became a new user of satellite, which means I got some discounts, in addition to the reduced price that I was already getting for the sports package. This made my monthly bill nearly nothing. To make it even better, I was given a DVR with my subscription, so I could record any game I wanted to, and watch them later at my convenience. Under my old cable plan, a DVR could have cost an addition $13 a month, and I would have only been able to record one game at a time, as opposed to the 4 that I get with satellite.
A couple of my friends from college are going to be in Toronto in a couple of weeks and the four of us are thinking about going out on the town for a big night. I have been thinking that it would be best if some other person were behind the wheel, especially not me. I have to have my driver’s license to do my job and I really like the job that I have. So I have been looking for more info on the cost of renting a limousine for the night. Of course I am not thinking that I want to pay for it all myself, but I figure that a limo is not going to be all that expensive if you split the cost of it four ways. That depends a lot upon how far you go with the concept. Read more
I am looking for a place to live in Peachtree City. Kind of a funny name, I do admit, and I had never heard of the place until a few years ago. But recently, I found a job there, and so I am going to make the move. So I need to find out about apartments for rent in Peachtree City GA and I want to find some sort of guide to apartment listings in the city. I do not really want to rent, because I think that it is smarter to own. But I do not know if I am going to be able to make it last with this company over the long run. Read more
My bride to be and I talked a lot about going here and going there. We were not rich, nor did we want to go in debt. However, we did want to see things we have never seen before. When we were looking for a limo service for our wedding day, we were also looking at a bunch of different things we could do in the area where we lived. Many of the things had been on both of our lists of things we wanted to do since we were children. The “go here” link for our limo service was also the go to link for our chartered tour of our local region.
We were planning a wedding and a two week away honeymoon with another week off to set up our new apartment together. We both had a total of four weeks vacation from work, and we were using three of them for our wedding and honeymoon and apartment set up. We decided to go someplace warm yet cheaper on our honeymoon for the opportunity of being able to rent a limo to tour our own local attractions. We took a week riding in a limo to see places in our own region that we had never been to before. Read more
Recently, I made my first plunge into social media for the purpose of business. I help organize a local event management and production company – everything from finding local entertainment, talent and labor to now working to setup their social media platforms. This is the first time that I’ve had to do this on a professional level but my lack of inexperience, along with no ‘professional’ education, has me rather nervous! However, I do have experience with social media itself so I am hopeful that if we buy twitter followers at http://buytwitternow.net for her new profile, we’ll be able to get things into motion.
The important thing is going to be able to interconnect all the social media platforns in order to get the word out. Read more
As someone who runs my own business, I have to try to work hard to keep up with new ways to bring in enough customers to keep my business afloat. I have a website, and every once in awhile people find my business that way. But because many new people were not finding me online, I wondered for awhile if keeping and paying for the website was worth it. I was at a networking event and mentioned my dilemma to someone else, and they told me I really needed to find an expert SEO service to get help. You learn something new every day, and I’m glad I discussed it with someone.
I worried that the cost to get help for my business site would cost a lot of money. After all, I have had to spend thousands of dollars in the past just to get my business advertised in local media. I was pretty surprised that the cost would only be a little over $100. It sounded too good to be true, but I had been told by my peer at the networking meeting that the service would be worth it. So, I decided to give it a try.
The company explained that the work they would do for me wouldn’t get my page found overnight, but that I would see a difference in how I would show up in search engines within about a week or so. They also said that I would see an even bigger difference in a couple of month’s time as well. It was in their hands, so I let them get to work.
After just a few week’s time, I began to get inquiries through my site about my products from people who were not previous customers. I asked each of them how they found my site, and three of them stated they found me on the first page of a search they did. Wow, the service was working, and it still is!

Ever since internet marketing started becoming so popular several years ago, some marketing professionals have had a hard time coming up with new ideas and keeping up with customer demand. One of the biggest challenges most marketing professionals face today is educating clients about how internet marketing works. Many come to them wanting to launch expensive and complex campaigns, and they also often want instant and immediate results.

One of the first things many marketing professionals attempt educate their clients about, is the importance of using targeted marketing strategies.
