Client Company Reviews [For Search Engine Marketing] Leads To Revenue Growth

We are not setting out to change the mind of anyone who is responsible for marketing or maybe owns a company; that those reviews [with the star ratings] that show up in the search engine results of how important it is to first collect feedback from client as a key component in day to day business operations.

For the sake of argument how about taking the point of view of a potential bed and breakfast customer, staying in town for a couple of nights and looking to determine where a good place to stay will be within a particular town or location.

The situation could be that a group of friends during a visit to a town for concert are looking for a nice clean place to stay [say] located somewhere in the King Cross region of London, UK. As is normal in the mobile technologically advanced world in which we live today, a quick internet search making use of Google’s search engine in this case will provide the browser with a list of hotels and bed & breakfast establishments in the region that will be suitable for them to stay for the required couple of nights.

From the search results it is clear for all to see the user ratings of the relevant hotels and other lodgings that are now prominently displayed both within the SERPs [search engine results] and in addition to that also on the accompanying area map that is now displayed.

Any prospective client is now able to follow the link as defined by the pin of the bed & breakfast establishment and then the searcher is able to see sometimes details as well as those summaries of the latest customer reviews. These reviews show up next to other relevant company information as it pertains to the organisation; this may include hours of operations, full physical address, phone number and email address.

We have of course used bed & breakfast and hotels for this example but this equally applies to restaurants, car dealers, cosmetic surgeons, dentists, veterinarian surgeon and other business that now can be broken due to the one really negative review.

As we can see the use of company client reviews within search engine marketing can often be all that is necessary to put one in a position to make a decision concerning where to stay for a few nights.

It is our view that businesses should incorporate collecting feedback and reviews from clients as a matter of day to day operations. This will a) provide the business with valuable market research and b) allow it to gain a competitive advantage over its competitors as more and more of search continues to be dominated by the reviews given by real clients on their experience with the company in question.

How To Select An Efficient Warehousing Service For Your Company

If you are an owner of a business and feels that managing and storing your productions in-house is incurring you a hell amount of money, then its time you decide to outsource your warehousing service to some third-party. A warehousing service is considered praiseworthy if they have a dedicated system that provides you the best storage and depot solutions that will minimize your inventory and logistics expenses.

Here are the determinants of an ideal warehousing service:

The location and space allotted for storage

As a business owner, your first priority is your client’s satisfaction when it comes to timely delivery of your products. A poor location of a warehouse can be a major obstacle in shipping your products to your destination on time. Parallel to this, proper planning while using the space in the warehouse is extremely important. You should select a service where you see stocks are organized efficiently, the old stock has been cleared out and there is no clutter inside the storehouse.

A committed team

The staffs present in the warehouse all the time are responsible for evaluating the warehousing conditions and decide whether it needs any improvements or modifications. They are one who faces the issues that arise daily and hence give a call to the management for the betterment of the service. So whenever you choose a warehouse service please see whether the team involved in the management and storage is a dedicated team with high skills and experience.

Transparencies in the entire process

Before jumping into any decision, you need to know what are the stages and procedures involved in the warehouse service. Yes, this point is important because otherwise you cannot judge the quality of a service and determine if it’s deviating from the usual norms and regulations. With a service provider with a transparent and clear process, it is possible to trust them blindly.

Advanced technology and quality control

The warehouse agencies that maintain the quality standards – ISO 9000 (quality control) and ISO 90001 (quality management) are considered to be the efficient and high standard companies. These play a crucial part to ensure that the anticipated outcomes are due to the utilization of best processes and technology available. A service provider that uses the best software with mobile scanners and high-quality integration with distribution partners is the ideal choice for you.

Warehousing operations are costly and time-consuming, but it is the soul of your business. Poor storage and depot facilities can cause your business to drop down below par. So, why take such risk and wait for such instances to occur? Seek the best warehouse service and skyrocket your business’s profits.

Postmodern Film Approach: CBC’s Othello

If I understand Othello correctly the viewer is supposed to be enveloped in a sense of suffocation, a feeling of being smothered, as Iago’s box closes around the others, capturing them. That doesn’t happen in this production at all, and one of the reasons it doesn’t is that the production is so beautiful. The sets, the costumes, the cinematography, all of it – it’s excellent, even breathtaking, to the point of distraction. (Compare the sense of asphyxiation in Trevor Nunn’s film with Ian McKellen and Willard White and the BBC film with Bob Hoskins and Anthony Hopkins – in those we feel really choked.)

I’m a firm believer that the “style over substance” type of aesthetic can go a long way, and justify a lot, but it usually can’t go all the way and justify everything. The true stars of this production are the costume designer Debra Hanson; the cinematographer Glen Keenan; the production designer Callum Maclachlan; and even the composer of the haunting theme, Philip J. Bennett. So – what of everything else?

I understand the necessity of time limitations in a television adaptation of Shakespeare, and I understand Orson Welles edited this work enormously also, but that isn’t justification. Chopping this play to two hours from its true three and a half is too much. It turns the play into Shakespeare for adolescents. Too many key speeches and scenes have to go. In particular the bawdy jesting between Iago and Desdemona as they leave the ship cannot be hacked off, as it gives too much insight into both of those critical characters. The cuts hurt.

Too: showing the corpses at the very start, and then flashing back, is a mistake. (It was a mistake when Welles did it as well; it will always be a mistake.) I can’t get behind this kind of re-writing of Shakespeare in any way, shape, or form. And this isn’t the only way Zaib Shaikh re-writes. He gives Roderigo the line “… this Muslim” (meaning Othello) at one point, which Shakespeare certainly didn’t write. The point is reinforced by having Othello exchange his necklace (a star and crescent) with Desdemona for hers (a cross) at the beginning, when they’re married. I don’t see anything wrong with the visual message of the necklaces, but again, re-writing the Bard, putting in words he didn’t write? A no no! Show, don’t tell.

The camera here is relatively bland. What about the acting? Christine Horne as Desdemona and Peter Donaldson as her father are sensational; I’ve not seen earnest, wholesome goodness just ooze out of Desdemona like this before. In the thankless role of Bianca Nazneen Contractor isn’t bad, and Ryan Hollyman looks like a great Roderigo. No one else is a Shakespearean heavyweight, to say the least. Compare Frank Finlay’s “Are you mad?” in the final scene to Matthew DeSlippe’s here and you’ll know most of what you need to know.

Christians: Wondering If You Are In The Right Relationship?

What am I getting myself into?

I received an email from a man who wrote them with a sense of bewilderment. He had been dating a woman for six months and had strong feelings for her. Being that they were both in their late 30′s, they felt they knew what they wanted out of life and didn’t see the point in waiting too long to get married, so he was contemplating popping the question. But, he didn’t want to make a decision based purely on emotion. With the rate of divorce being so high he was questioning his ability to detect whether or not he was making the right decision. His question is one that is on many people’s minds: How do I know I am with the right one?

There are many indicators to help you know if you are with the right person and the way you feel about someone is certainly one of them. Usually, when you are with “the one” you feel a strong, familiar, peaceful connection to him/her in addition to the romance and excitement. But… we all know feelings change and fade. The honeymoon always comes to an end. This is the secret of a strong and lasting marriage… learning to love each other even more when those feelings of romance aren’t present. But, if you can’t rely on feelings as the proper gauge, what is there you can count on?

A New Trend Among Dating Couples

Here’s an interesting trend: more and more couples who are not yet engaged are attending marriage preparation courses and retreats in an effort to boost their discernment process and feel as confident as possible about their chosen partner. I spoke with one such couple, Julie and Brian, about this and the Julie, gave a notable response: “We just want to know what we are getting into so we don’t waste each other’s time.” I had asked Julie specifically why she would attend if she and Brian weren’t engaged, yet. “It’s too important… I don’t want to get a divorce, I’d rather have a long and happy marriage.”

Fair enough. So, if you love the one you’re with, is it enough to be in love and agree on the issues of children, faith, finances, etc.? Some people would say yes, but hearkening back to the gentleman who had emailed me describing his sense of being perplexed, it was clear he still wanted some sign, some indication he couldn’t doubt that his girlfriend was the person God had intended for him.

If you find yourself in these same shoes, I’d like to offer you a simple, yet very effective way to help you discern whether you are with Mr. or Mrs. Right. Just ask yourself these three questions:

1. Will my relationship with this person bring me closer to God?

2. Will my relationship with this person make me a more loving person?

3. Will this relationship allow me to use my gifts and talents?

If our goal in life is to spend eternity with God in heaven then this first question is one we should always ask ourselves. If you answer it honestly and follow through, you take a huge step in knowing if this person is the right one for you. Even if you’ve only been together a short time, you already have some insight into your behaviors as a couple. Are you comfortable discussing your beliefs with this person? Is faith and morality as important to your significant other as it is to you? Do you share any spiritual goals? The answers to these questions all indicate one of three things: either the relationship is moving you toward God, it isn’t, or you need to start talking about these things to find out.

Regarding the second question, it’s important to understand that I’m not talking about romantic love because that should naturally be a yes. This question focuses you on detecting if your relationship with the person you are dating will enable you to grow in love for God and others? Genuine love is self-less. It focuses on others. So in your relationship, are the two of you focused on making the other happy, or are you in the relationship for your own benefit? Another way to tell if your relationship will help you become a more loving person is by defining how open the two of you are to new life. Two people who are committed to each other but not yet married reveal their openness to new life by never using artificial contraception at any stage in their relationship which means you remain celibate until marriage. But in addition to that important point, ask yourself if you, as a couple are comfortable sharing your faith with others?

The third question might sound odd, but it is really an important thing to consider. when you think about living the rest of your life with this person. God endowed you with gifts and talents for a reason… so you can use them for His glory and the good of others. This question will help you determine the level of harmony between the two people in the relationship… Is your significant other supportive of your interests and goals? Does this person encourage you to follow your dreams and stand beside you to cheer you on? I might add here that this is something you should feel comfortable doing in return. Can you get behind this person up on all his/her pursuits?

If you are wondering if you are in a relationship with the right person, I encourage you to take some time and reflect upon these questions. They are tools I use often in other types of decisions I must make as well and are very effective.
