Taking Control of Mimickers out There Trying to Steal Your Customers

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

In my hometown growing up you could have a business that paid your bills and keep the business running for many years without worry of competition moving in. The global marketplace of the Internet does not offer the same luxury. Competition can pop up overnight. You can even get competition that steals your market share by pretending to be your product. There is a lot of that coming out of China. This is why branding is so important. And protecting your brand is actually even more important. We looked at using Gromode to help us with traffic and lead generation to our official website to help take control of fake sellers out there trying to pass themselves off as us.

Our brand was explicit in telling customers to only order our supplements from our official website. Knock-off products are popular from purses to nutritional supplements. (more…)

Expanding into International Markets Got My Product Noticed

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I started out making a small plastic product in my garage. I bought an injection machine that fit on my workbench and would make a couple hundred of them after I got home from work each day. I was selling my product like crazy on the auction sites online. Then I had a professional website developed. I got contacted by a company in Brazil that wanted me to ship them a few thousand units wholesale, but I did not know anything about doing business in Brazil. I did not even know if my product was legal to ship there. I mean, it is not dangerous or anything, but you just do not know.

I had to get a fast education from an expert who helped me learn about doing business in Brazil. I learned that there was no regulations or laws controlling my product anywhere in the country. I also learned that there was no controls on exporting my product out of the country to Brazil. (more…)

Trying to Get Rid of Some Geese

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I have no real clue what I am going to do, because the geese that hang out in my yard are really determined to stay there. I am pretty sure that some person has been feeding them, but either way I have not been able to frighten them off for very long. I have been talking to a guy who does bird control in NJ. I was hoping he would give up the secret to this, and that I would be able to do it on my own. However he was not going to be so accommodating as to help me out that much. (more…)

Setting It Up So That I Can Work from the Home Office

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Setting it up so that I can work from the home office today. That is a big deal for me and the boss. I was explaining to him how it made a lot of sense for me to set it up so that we could run jobs all night long and all weekend without people going in to the office. That was a really big deal to me. I had to download a cnet photo scanning software download and get some licenses for Office and other programs like that to help me out. I got one of the extra computers from the office and a scanner too. Then I cleared out a bit of space in the extra bedroom and set it up there. (more…)

A Business School in Singapore Was the Perfect Fit for Our Child

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Our daughter is what I call a serial entrepreneur. She is now reaching college age, and she has earned enough money with her business ventures to pay for it all on her own. She started out delivering daily newspapers. She developed a way to handle more routes than the other kids in a shorter period of time. The newspaper circulation department paid her for her ideas. It was only fitting that she would be going to one of the better business schools in Singapore for her education in business management. She had such a natural ability that going into business education for a degree seemed the natural course to take.

She did wonderfully. Her abilities thrived and bloomed in school. (more…)

Doing My New Job Search

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I spent the day getting ready for the interview. I swung by the hair salon and got my stylist to give me a trim. It was pretty shaggy and I had a hair style that was designed to impress this girl who I was pursuing while I was in grad school. She was sort of off beat and I thought I would try to be a bit different. It was not as though it mattered so much as my current boss barely knows what I look like in all honesty. It is clear enough in fact that he is not really in command of things at the office and it is pretty clear that I need to be working on a new plan, which I have been from the start. (more…)

Best Hair Care Products for Dry Hair

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I have had dry hair for the last few months, and it has been getting especially bad in the past couple of weeks. I think it is somewhat related to the weather, but I have always had the tendency to have dry hair. I have a found a couple products that might work, but I am looking for a product that is made from some sort of natural plant. As such, I have been thinking that I should try argan oil as a solution for my hair problems.

I need to make sure that it will work well, but from what I know right now, I have reason to believe that it will work pretty well with my hair type. I am not sure if I should just buy a product that contains pure Argan oil, or if I should buy some sort of other type of hair care product, that contains the oil in it. (more…)

Why I Finally Hired a Tree Service in Brooklyn NY

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

We have four fruit trees in our front yard along with a couple of Japanese maples. They are not very tall, and I was going to trim them all myself. I figured a good pruning would make them look better and maybe help them thrive. Well, after I hacked up the first one, I figured I would just call a tree service in brooklyn ny to get the job done right. There was not a whole lot they could do with the first tree I had a go at. Fortunately it is the one closest to the house and partly behind one of the Japanese maples. It will not be sticking out like a sore thumb for those driving or walking by. (more…)

Reasonably Priced Apartments That Look Nice

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I am going to try to find a new apartment, at some point within the next three weeks. I only have three weeks, because my lease is going to expire soon. I probably waited too long, but anyway, I think I might have found a place. The website is, http://www.brookhighlandplace.com, and while I am going to have to look into it some more, from what I have seen, at a glance, it looks like it would meet my expectations for the most part. I think that I would also be rather satisfied to live there, but of course, it depends on a few factors. (more…)

It is the Model of Efficiency

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

There is a new machine coming to factories everywhere, the vffs packaging machines are something that everyone will want. They can take things, scan them and figure out what size package they belong in. They can take it a step further though, they can also realize where it is going and print and attach an appropriate label. Of course you will still need employees to maintain the machine and check that the packages are done correctly, but it will allow you to dramatically decrease the amount that you need in your packaging department. Beyond that, it has many uses because it is generally speaking faster than a normal person. (more…)

The Pros and Cons of Sites Like the Pirate Bay

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

It seems like it was not really all that long ago that families hovered around black and white television sets hoping to catch the newest late night shows. Movie theaters were flourishing despite rather rudimentary technology, and people never really considered being able to get this form of entertainment in any other way. It seems that it was only a matter of time for this to change though, as devices like personal computers, laptops, and even smartphones have completely changed the landscape. Websites like The Pirate Bay have taken advantage of this, recognizing that customers are no longer willing to shell out huge amounts of money just to be disappointed in a movie.

The idea is pretty simple, as this group of people believes that all information and data should be publically available. The opposition to this involves concern over copyrights and the impact that can be caused by not respecting them. (more…)

Getting Kitchen Remodeling in Bergen County NJ

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

When the cabinet door to where we keep the drinking glasses fell off, I knew we could not wait much longer to have our kitchen renovated. We had been saving money. Now was the perfect time to get an estimate from a company that does kitchen remodeling in bergen county nj. We needed the kitchen gutted to the bare walls. Even the insulation needed to be redone. It was inadequate for the cold winters. The kitchen always felt drafty.

This involved of a kitchen remodeling job was going to take some time. I thought it was going to take a long time. I imagined a huge expense in takeout meals while we waited for it to be done. However, the crew that did our kitchen worked really fast. They obviously had done this a time or two in the past. (more…)

Spent a Small Fortune Before the Wedding Got Started

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Of course Meg and I saved a good bit of money when we started to live together. In fact we found a tiny house for sale on the Northwest side of Nashville and between us we could afford the down payment. It was a huge saving compared to what we were paying on rent. I had this one bedroom place that was costing me more in rent. We got a Nashville engagement photographer to take some pictures before we sent out the wedding invitations and then we had to put a deposit down on the venue where we are having the wedding.

Flowers and Fruit for My Sister

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Singapore: the rise and rise of a modern city - TelegraphWhen my sister had her first child, I knew that she was thankful for the miracle she and her husband were just given. She ended up staying in the hospital a few days because the delivery was very rough on her. I wanted to send her some flowers so she would know that I was thinking of her. I didn’t know who to order them from, so I did a quick search online. That is how I found http://www.cakeflower.com.sg. I am quite particular when it comes to most things, and even ordering a nice arrangement of flowers has to measure up to my standards.

That is why I was really happy to find this site. (more…)

What You Need to Know About Car Rental Rates

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

... 2012 CAR AND MOTO REVIEWS: New Honda Odyssey 2009 Reviews And SpecsWhether you are a vacationer looking for a touring car or a local resident who needs an extra set of wheels for a few days, you should find out more details about car rental rate differences, and how you can save money on your next rental. While public transit and taxis are popular options, taking a bus or train can be time-consuming and taxi fares add up quickly. When you rent a car, you and your traveling companions enjoy the freedom of having your own vehicle combined with the reassurance that you are driving a high-quality, well-maintained car.

You can usually find out more details about car rental rate on the website of your car rental company. Most major rental services allow customers to check prices of different vehicles and compare the cost of renting for a few hours, a day, week or longer. If you are able to be flexible with your plans, you can often find great deals on rental rates during the off-season or on weekends. Be aware that just like hotels and vacations, the cost of renting a car is often higher during peak travel times, such as school breaks and public holidays.

Another factor that affects the price of renting a car is what type of vehicle you choose. Generally speaking, the more a car sells for, the more it costs to rent. For example, renting a luxury van, SUV or high-end sedan will be pricier than renting a compact or sub-compact car. Depending on your needs, you may be able to save on your next vehicle rental by choosing a smaller vehicle; remember that in addition to the lower rental fee, a smaller vehicle will use less fuel and be much easier to park than a large luxury car.

Before finalizing your plans, it’s always a good idea to find out more details about car rental rate at your destination by contacting the rental company directly, either via email or by phoning. This way, you can both confirm the information from the company website and inquire about any unadvertised specials and offers that might further reduce the cost of your car rental.

People Are Looking for Help

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I heard from my friend that works at the local weight loss center that there were a lot of people coming in to learn about mitoslim and all of the diet products that they sold. I knew that there were a lot of people that had to think about their health but I think the fact that a really well known actor died of a heart attack at the age of forty scared a lot of people to go and try to lose weight. In fact, later on the news that night there was a report that said that there was a record number of new gym memberships sold at the national gym that was found in every single state. I saw that it was a lot of fun and I was happy to see all of the different people on the news that I knew in the local segment.

I have been fit for my entire life and I knew that it was going to be very important for me to help my friends that were going to be looking to lose weight. (more…)

Lamassu Sells 100th Bitcoin ATM

Posted by Dolores A. Norton

Machines already launched in Finland, Slovakia and Australia. The Bitcoin ATM will be displayed on January 5th at the pre-CES Startup Debut in Las Vegas.


Manchester, New Hampshire (PRWEB) December 30, 2013

Within the first four months of sales, the world’s leading Bitcoin ATM manufacturer has received over 120 orders for their sleek countertop machines. After reaching the 100-machine landmark, Lamassu, Inc. set up an online map of bitcoin ATM destinations that will continue to be updated as the machines go live. Over a dozen ATMs have already been delivered, and the rest of the orders will all be shipped by Spring 2014.

“We’ve had orders from all over the world. We will be shipping to 25 different countries, ranging from Canada to Kyrgyzstan, and we’ve translated our user interface into more than a dozen languages including Russian, Chinese and Friulian,“ says Lamassu CEO Zach Harvey. “To me it’s a testament to the global reach of Bitcoin.”

Online pre-orders for the Bitcoin Machine began in August on the startup’s website. The modern, minimalist design, small footprint and $ 5,000 price point have made it an attractive investment for Bitcoin entrepreneurs worldwide.

Shortly after Finland’s Bittiraha.fi launched their Lamassu machine in a record store in Helsinki, Finnish blog Bitcoin Nontech reviewed the machine. The machine was deemed suitable for beginners and “ridiculously easy to use.”

Juraj Bednár created a YouTube demonstration of the machine’s simplicity at a Subway restaurant in Bratislava, Slovakia. The process of converting cash to bitcoin took about 15 seconds.

“It’s always exciting for a young startup to have sales ramp up,” Harvey adds. “But what’s really thrilling for us is to know that these will be out in the wild, providing millions of people with effortless access to Bitcoin every single day.”

Lamassu expects additional machines to launch throughout Europe and the Americas in the coming weeks, and the company is taking more orders on a daily basis. Notable locations in the United States include San Francisco, Atlanta and Seattle.

The Bitcoin Machine will be made available for demonstrations and hands-on use at the CES Startup Debut media showcase on Sunday, January 5, from 7 – 10 pm.

My Neighbor Was Right All Along

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I noticed a beautiful, flowering tree out near the edge of our yard was not doing so good about 3 years ago. My wife loved that tree, and a neighbor had one just like ours across the street that looked great. It was healthy and had so many blooms on it every spring and summer, while ours had very few. I was not really sure what I should do about it until the neighbor said that it was important that I look into tree pruning in Queens NY as soon as possible. The reason, he said, was that if I did not get help for my tree soon, it would die.

What my neighbor said seemed a bit like overkill. I had a feeling that if I just watered it more and gave it some one-time fertilized, it would probably perk right up. I could not have been more wrong. As the years passed, the tree began looking worse. The blooms all but disappeared each blooming season. My wife was frustrated by that point.

I had to be honest with my wife and told her that the neighbor had told me exactly what I needed to do to fix the problem, but I had brushed the information off. She immediately took matters into her own hands and made some calls to find out what could be done to help the tree. That same day, a nice employee from a local tree company came over to take a look. He said that we should have begun pruning the tree as soon as we saw that it was having problems years ago. He was not sure if he could save the tree because I let it go on for so long, but he said he was willing to try. He did, and a year later, it's time for the tree to flower again and it looks great.

I Love the Way My Newly Painted Walls Look Now

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Back when I had roommates, we would live in rental homes. Most of them would not allow you to do any painting or changing up of the walls, but we often did it anyway. We never received our security deposits back as soon as various landlords saw the crummy painting jobs we did. After getting a great deal on a home purchase, I knew that I needed a painter in Bergen County NJ to do every bit of the painting for me. I wanted to treat my new place with full respect. I knew that I could not do the job justice on my own.

I visited a variety of paint company websites. I diligently looked at all the colors. When I was not sure of exactly which colors to use, I purchased a variety of decorating magazines to see what was in style and what would look good. I chose a desert-like tan color for my living room to go with the richly-colored Oak wood floors. Next, I chose a light lilac for my bedroom. The thought of waking u in a spring-like room each day of the year was appealing. I chose a light blue for the bathroom and a pale green for the kitchen. I was excited about what the outcome would look like.

A group of employees from a nearby painting company showed up early on a Monday morning. I was pleased to see that there were four of them because I knew that meant they would get the work done quickly. By the end of the 8 hour work day, they had half of the rooms done. They showed up bright and early the next morning and finished the rest of the rooms. My place looked absolutely fantastic. Everything seemed so new and exciting in the house because of it.

Electricity Options in the Texas Area

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

Whether you want to do it or not, chances are you end up paying for energy to your home. Sure there are Amish communities out there that have resisted the temptations of technology, but most of us have gotten so used to technology that we simply take it for granted. When a power outage occurs we are often shocked by our reliance, especially when attempting to turn a light on while using the bathroom to making coffee or warming food up and doing the laundry. We are pretty much stuck paying for electricity, so head over to texasenergycompanies.net to find out about all of the options you have for plans and rates.

The idea is that instead of just signing up for some universally generic plan and paying whatever rate they want, it is better to shop around and find the perfect fit. With so many different plans, there is bound to be something that better fits your usage pattern and habits, which can ultimately save money. Of course at the same time, some companies simply charge less money for the same service so if someone is looking to cut back on spending this can be a great way to save a little.

These plans are available for both homes and businesses, since both often need reliable and consistent energy but also have limited budgets for utilities. With new green technologies developing every day, it is also sometimes important to find a company that understands the importance of these technologies and helps out accordingly to incentivize and reward its usage. Of course it is especially important for businesses to get consistent results and quick customer service, as any problem or outage can lead to unexpected loss of revenue and that is simply not acceptable for most companies to deal with.

A New Companion for My Grandfather

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

My grandfather used to live on his own and he enjoyed it, that is until one day when he fell while walking around the home. He was able to call 911 for help and they were able to treat his injuries, but he was too injured to be left alone. He couldn't more around like he used to, and he had trouble getting things for himself. I'm the only one who could care for him, but I have to work during the day, so I looked into senior home care in Long Island.

An in home care professional could look after my grandfather while I was working and help him eat and do other things while his injuries heal. One home care service was highly recommended by many people who had tried them, and I gave them a call. They told me more about their service and their staff and I was interested. I agreed to use one of their staff members to look after my grandfather.

My grandfather was initially against the idea of having someone else look after him. He's always been an independent person ever since he was young. The thought of someone else helping him do even the most basic tasks was embarrassing to him. Eventually I was able to talk him into letting the care professional help him.

After a while, my grandfather and the care professional warmed up to each other. They became good friends and my grandfather didn't mind being helped out. Since the care professional was good at chess, which was one of my grandfather's favorite games, the two of them played many games to pass the time. The care professional would win most of the time, which sparked a friendly rivalry between him and my grandfather. My grandfather is determined to beat the professional.

Great Tree Service Companies for Large Tree Removal

Posted by Laurie J. Eccleston

I live on a piece of property that has a whole lot of trees on it, and I would like to get rid of a number of the trees, principally to improve the lighting of my yard. I am trying to grow some things in my yard, but I do not really get enough light in my yard, and a large part of that, is the presence of the trees. Anyway, I need to find a tree service in westchester ny that specializes in removing large trees, because most of the trees that I am going to need to get removed, are very large in nature. There are close to a dozen trees that must be at least 100 feet tall, and need to be removed. I would not want to be the person who had to climb up these trees, and that does not sound like an enviable job. But Digest Even More
