My roommate just started working at the biggest dealership in town and will be handling all of their online marketing plans. They had used a lot of automotive SEO in the past but when they looked at the measurement of the results they thought they could get more from their money using other sources. They had considered moving to a social strategy but their marketing firm suggested a more blended approach. They had explained this to the last marketing guy but he was very “old school” according to the GM.
This is a great opportunity for my friend and if he is successful could be a great spring board for him in the industry. It also does not hurt that he will be able to get a friends and family price on my next car. I just happen to be in the market for a new car and if he can get me a great deal I would be so stoked.
Marketing can be pretty tricky now days with people trying to figure out the perfect blend between digital and traditional. I am glad my neck is not on the line with this type of job. I like sales because it has changed very little since the start of time. Just the products being sold have changed.

Safety is becoming more of a factor in the choice of a Spring break location, and this trend is prompting resorts and their guests to consider safe travel options, according to Chaa Creek?s marketing administrator, Larry Waight.
?In the past, the emphasis was on party party party,? Mr Waight said, ?But this year we are seeing an increasing number of enquiries, from both students and parents, about safety issues in regard to Easter break celebrations, and here in Belize the tourism industry is responding to this trend.?
Mr Waight also pointed to an increasing number of web sites and programs with names like Safe Spring Break and Coolest Spring Break that are targeting Spring Break safety issues, and remarked that safety should also be a primary concern for tourism industry professionals.
?At Chaa Creek, our philosophy has always been to work with our guests and colleagues to ensure not only the most exciting, but safest visitor experiences possible. This is an integral part of our responsible travel ethos that we like to communicate to guests and our colleagues.?
Mr Waight said travellers should use internet searches to learn more about personal safety when travelling, and offered some of Chaa Creek?s own safe travel tips.
My friend just started a business and asked if he could use my truck to move some things around. He promised to keep a blue tarp down on the bottom of my bed so that he did not scratch anything or hurt my baby. Since he was going to get to use my truck for free I suggested that he by a couple truck tarps to keep his stuff protected and then he could “gift” them to me once he was done. I have wanted a nice truck tarp for awhile but have never wanted to buy a custom type tarp when I can get away using a blue tarp for the same job. But if he will do it for me I would love it.
I am excited for him and hope his business does very well. It is a tough time to open a new business but if anyone can make it work it is him. It also helps that he is very passionate about the business he is getting into so it will not necessary feel like work. They always say that if you find something you love and can do this for a living then you will never feel like you are working. I can only wish him the best and would never say no to him borrowing my truck.

I just spent this past weekend helping my brother move. There is nothing worse than moving. You have to pack up everything and then haul it from here to there and upak it again. It is time consuming and exhausting with very little reward. You might be able to love the new house or are or state but the move sucks all that positive out of it. Thankfully we only have to it occasionally or we would likely go insane.
My brother order direct tv for his new place and was smart enough to have the guy come install it the same day he was moving. This was tricky but at least he did not have to schedule a special day to meet the dx3 direct tv guy. He was able to essentially save himself a day off. The fact that he will have his dx3 set up and ready to watch once we finished as even better. He was able to watch the end of the golf tourney before he started unpacking.

This weekend I was cleaning out my garage and woke up this morning stiff as a board. That is the price you pay for getting older. Back in the day I could do just about anything and pop right up in the morning. Now, if I look wrong I could be sore for days. My joint and muscle are just not as resilient as they once were. I found a great option though for getting back quickly and relieving some of my pain. It is a wellness drink made from the Nopal Cactus. It has healing properties and has been used for centuries by native people for treating inflammation and cleaning out toxins. It is a great alternative to just taking some aspirin since it is actually helping not just masking the issue. Nopalea comes in a 32 ounce bottle and has been great for helping with my stiffness and pains of my aging body You can try Nopalea for free (only pay $9.95 for shipping) by calling 1-800-203-7063.
If you or anyone you know suffers from issues like this you can try it out for free and see if it helps you like it has me. It is a great way to help you promote a healthier lifestyle.

Over the holidays and through to this month, I have started to search out a few haunts hoping to find deals. Especially video game deals. As I hunted I found a blog article about a place called nomorerack. Nomorerack? Sounds kinky until you drag your mind out of the gutter and note it’s a play on words about not shopping clothing racks.
The site nomorerack.com actually is a neat idea. Instead of overwhelming you with millions of things you may never want they post a few items, different each day. Each item is the genuine article, marked down to low prices and available for only 24 hours (it’s in Eastern Standard Time too so I don’t have to estimate time or anything!) in which new never before seen items show up.
Now the negative Nancy in me wants to get mad that set items are not there but at the same time think about it. If you show up on day and see stuff you hate, you can come back once a day and bam see if anything worth it is there. I’ve seen watches appear there, random around the house tool, even a few accessories that I can see helping me maintain my army of game consoles like that nifty Skil Mini Carabiner Knife:
A tool kit that can latch onto my belt is always nifty. The only downside is stuff at these prices (the shipping is a measly $2 for each item. Dayyuam that’s cheap) tends to sell out quick so getting stuff you want while the getting’s good is smart.
The site also has a neat referral program. Nomorerack WANTS you to refer your friends to them. You can simply send friends a referral link to the site. They click through and bam you gain “friendrack” points. Your friends don’t have to even buy anything, you get rewarded. Every day they have these friendrack deals where instead of spending money, you can use friend points instead! And if that wasn’t great enough, there is always that one item that is basically free. Yes, they offer freebies for purchase.
This site may be a bit of luck on the draw, but mu most awesome purchases were luck on the draw finds. I know I’m gunna stalk this place and see how it shakes out.

Alabama Tourism today launched a three year campaign, ?100 Alabama Road Trips? with the release of the first 10 trips. The campaign focuses on driving itineraries that travelers can experience over two or three days. The initial itineraries are now live on the tourism website and each is numbered, http://www.Alabama.travel. Other trips will continue to be added throughout the first year of the campaign.
The first 10 trips include the BCS Championship tour, Eagle watching on Lake Guntersville, a romantic getaway to Mobile, Selma to Montgomery Civil Rights history, spring break at the beach, a walking tour of downtown Birmingham, Huntsville?s Space & Rocket Center, Montgomery?s history tour, bird watching on the coast and the To Kill A Mockingbird tour in Monroeville. A few upcoming trips will include a Girlfriends Getaway on the Eastern Shore, family fun in Sylacauga, golfing in Alabama, music in the Shoals and Gulf Coast adventures.
?Road Trips? is also the theme for the 2012 Vacation Guide. Pages six and seven of the guide provides a sneak peek at the campaign. The cover of the publication is of a 1953 baby blue Cadillac, much like the one Hank Williams owned, parked on a pier at Lake Guntersville. The car will be used as a symbol and logo for the road trips campaign. The Cadillac is in tourism?s television commercials that are currently airing on television stations across the U.S. The car will also be used around the state at events and festivals throughout the three year campaign.
?We wanted to make it easier for travelers to plan their trip so we came up with 100 itineraries. There?s something for everyone,? said tourism director Lee Sentell. ?If you?re planning a trip to the beach, we have an itinerary for that, or a trip to experience the small towns of Alabama, we?ve got that too.?
The 164-page vacation guide provides travelers with information on hotels, restaurants, campgrounds, tourism associations, state parks, golf courses, attractions, trails and museums.
Each region of the state is highlighted and provides articles on the attractions, places to stay and events in the areas. Articles include ?100 Great Alabama Road Trips” on pages 6-7, shopping for treasures in Alabama on page 13, Civil Rights history on pages 14-15, Alabama?s chefs, farms and restaurants on pages 16-25, and golf begins on page 26. Articles on each of the four regions of the state along with things to do begin with the north region on page 37. Each regional article includes a map of the area with the road trip blue Cadillac icon.
Travelers can pick up copies of the vacation guide at each of the eight Alabama Welcome Centers, by calling 1.800.ALABAMA or by requesting online at http://www.alabama.travel. Compass Marketing of Gulf Shores publishes the vacation guide.
