The Simplest Way To Make Your Lights Smart

The Simplest Ways to Make Your Lights Smart

I watch CNET on ROKU almost everyday. CNET has tons of reviews on the “Smart Home.” One of the recurring features is smart light bulbs where one connects an app to the light and controls them, but they cost around $30 – $50.00! This is just way too much money in my opinion for these lights to be practical. That’s where Etekcity Wireless Remote Control Electrical Outlet Switch comes in. You can connect these devices to multiple outlets and control them with one remote. I put them on my bedroom lights so before bed just hit a few buttons and lights off. That’s easier than opening an app in my opinion plus I don’t like sleeping next to my cell phone anyway. I also connected one of these switches on my radio so when commercials come on a push the off button to “mute” or turn off the radio. 3 packs costs $20 at the moment so definitely worth every penny.

Here is the 9malls review review:

How B2B Lead Generation is Making the World a Better Place

Catch asks the question, “Who is visiting your web site?” If you don’t have a clear answer to that question Catch may be the product for you. For example if you run a office supply site and want to know what companies are visiting your web site Catch would be a good fit. Then you can follow up with these companies to generate more business for your office supply site.

Catch is a new and powerful, web-based sales and marketing tool that helps B2B companies focus on targeted business. The software allows you to easily view information about companies who visit your site, including company name, email address, telephone number, and other contact details.

Killer Packaging Tips for Start-up Businesses

Killer Packaging Tips for Start-up Businesses

The following is a sponsored post:

This post will give you an insight on proper packaging. These apply to all business, but will be more useful to those who are just starting out.

First and foremost, you shouldn’t waste your packaging materials. Assuming that your business is just budding, you might not have a lot of funds to waste around. As such, you need to make sure you make the most out of everything, packaging materials included. So, it makes no sense to add numerous packaging materials if it doesn’t justify the purpose. You should use the right amount of materials and you will be able to save on costs and help the environment at large.

When you hear term packaging, what comes to mind? To most of us, packaging inflicts an image of brown packing boxes along with tapes. Well, the truth is that it’s not all about that. Cushioning items are also part of it, as they protect the products from significant damage. Other materials included in packaging are pillow boxes, PVC covers, polythene packaging, pouches, potli bags and many more. All these make packaging better without breaking your bank. You can research on packaging suppliers online as well as delivery companies to get great deals on these materials.

Thirdly, you will want to make the package attractive, informative, safe and useful as well. A successful packaging design will balance all these vital factors in a manner that the end result succeeds in impressing clients and driving sales. In regards to being informative, it should contain all the relevant information for the client to understand the contents of the package.

Another important tip is to ascertain that you practice effective or adequate banding from the first day. There’s a large scope in terms of branding with packaging materials. So, why not make the most out of it and place your business logo along with an ideal theme so that the clients can relate to your business easily? This is a huge benefit in the long haul and takes time to build. As such, ensure that you employ an effective branding strategy with packaging from day one.

Also, never let your clients anticipate in vain as this can really ruin your business. Ever received a gift where the packaging was large, but the item was small? Certainly you would have been disappointed as your expectations raise the moment you see the large box. This is the same case with your clients. So, it is important that you never make them anticipate in vain. The same goes for tightly fit boxes or rather small boxes. You should never go overboard and pack over the limit with an aim of saving on costs. In fact, the contents are subjected to higher risk when stuffed in boxes.

Finally, it is important that you get the best e-commerce packaging materials. Regardless of how appealing your packaging design might be, you will not be able to achieve quality packaging if you lack the best e-commerce packaging items. If you use ideal materials, you are certain of durability, quality, and better overall features. This will give you an edge for impressing your clients.

With these tips in mind, you can be sure that your business will thrive as your packaging won’t lack in any aspect.

New Type Of Light Found

I saw this article yesterday on CNN. So interesting! Here is the full article: http://www.cnn.com/2016/05/17/tech/light-new-properties-discovery/index.html. Wanted to share this with my audience in case you didn’t hear about this.

Ireland researchers have reported that they discovered a “new form” of light, and say that their discovery “will impact our understanding of the fundamental nature of light.” The discovery was published in the scientific journal “Science Advances.”

“What I think is so exciting about this result is that even this fundamental property of light, that physicists have always thought was fixed, can be changed.”

Eastham suggested that the discovery could have implications for telecommunications and privacy.
