In social media, content strategy is KING

In social media, content strategy is KING

Building true social media engagement means creating a content strategy to hook the audience, not just being on social media.

 

Those who love to drink coffee often have favorite places to do so. They frequent a chosen venue because it’s a great place to hang out. Perhaps they know the owners or the other customers who, like them, regularly drop in to socialize. But without the rich aromas and great tasting coffee that they serve, would they still go there if there was nothing to drink?

Perimeter Security Market (Intrusion Detection Sensor, Video Surveillance, Access Control System) 2018 Forecasts in a New Research Report at RnRMarketResearch.com

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

A perimeter is the boundary that divides the assets from the exterior world. The intention of deploying perimeter security solutions is to protect the infrastructure from the external threats such as vandalism, diversion, sabotage and other criminal acts. These systems assist to deter, detect, deny, delay and defend unauthorized access to the assets within the perimeter. Perimeter security is divided into physical security for buildings, infrastructure, and grounds; and logical security for computer networks. The physical security aspect has been covered in this report. Outdoor perimeter security is frequently-neglected, but it can considerably improve the efficiency of any infrastructure’s security system.

Guidelines for Conducting Hands-On Science with Children


Ponca City, OK (PRWEB) December 21, 2013

How about giving science as a gift this year? You can spark a world of wonder through hands-on discovery of science either through books or a kit. Books are always a great choice for that last minute gift. Your local book store probably has a host of science and hands-on titles as well as your online book retailer. Check out the recommendations from the American Association for the Advancement of Science (http://www.aaas.org) or the winning books from the National Science Teachers Association for 2014 (http://www.nsta.org/publications/ostb/ostb2014.aspx). The key is to pick a book that interests the intended recipient. Science activity books focus on a variety of topics – airplanes, chemistry, rocks, bugs, plants, ocean life, yo-yos, toys, etc. So surely there is the perfect topic for that special someone.

Don’t just want to give the book – how about a book and an activity? KlutzTM, Discovery StoreTM and other specialty retailers have a host of kits and activities that are available. The old chemistry set and electronics kits have been revamped and redesigned. There are a host of likely candidates for that inquisitive child, student, budding inventor or scientist.

As science activities tend to become group and social activities, safety is a critical consideration. If you are a grandparent, friend, aunt or uncle, you may want to think about a resource or two for the parent of that budding engineer or scientist. Dr. Frankie Wood-Black has published a book titled “Staying Safe while Conducting Hands-On Science: Guidelines for Parents and Adults Conducting Hands-On Science with Children” that may be useful, particularly if you think that hands-on science is going to be a regular home activity.

Some other tips to help you pick a safe and fun activity include:

    Keep the Age Guidelines in mind. These guidelines are based upon the developmental skills and abilities of a child at a particular age.
    Read the Box or Label. Look for trigger words and suggestions. If the box suggests additional safety gear that is not included, purchase it at the same time. (Safety goggles are an example.)
    Get the Appropriate Safety Gear and/or other Parts. Remember when you got that great model but did not have the glue? Or that wonderful remote controlled toy with no batteries? The same can be said for the safety gear – it should be an integral part of the kit or package as well as batteries, etc.

In addition to the specific information included in the kit or activity, you can also find additional safety recommendations on-line through some non-profit organizations such as http://www.safekids.org or http://www.toyinfo.org.

So give the gift of encouragement and continuing fun by giving a science related hands-on activity.

Dr. Frankie Wood-Black is a Principal at Sophic Pursuits, Inc. an environmental consulting and educational materials provider. She can be contacted at fwblack(at)sophicpursuits(dot)com or at 580-761-3703. She also writes a science activities blog sophicpursuits.wordpress.com.

Bringing the Brands Home: Stylish Organics Supports Organic, Eco-Friendly, Made in USA, Products

Bringing the Brands Home: Stylish Organics Supports Organic, Eco-Friendly, Made in USA, Products













Organic Cotton, Hemp, and Bamboo Clothing for Kids, Women, & Men at stylishorganics.com


Stanton, NJ (PRWEB) December 19, 2013

Forecasted trends beginning year 2013 included; bring home product production, increase demand for products that give back-to-nature, and increase product production transparency. Driven by several concerns including immediate want, rising foreign labor costs, and consumer desire for more eco-friendly products, it was perceived that about 76 percent of US shoppers were more likely to notice and purchase products labeled ‘made in the USA’. (Source: trendwatching.com 10 Crucial Consumer Trends for 2013) Stylish Organics supports these forecasted trends as values and in 2013 set about to widen their one-stop-shopping platform to provide a larger selection of green manufactured organic, eco-friendly, made in the USA, products.

As more consumers are seeing the value of environmentally friendly products, the demand for transparent manufacturing to assure green product production is increasing in importance. The state of the economy and the number of unemployed Americans questions the value of off shore manufacturing. Many manufacturers are bringing product production back to the US and proudly displaying a ‘made in the USA’ label. Most Americans want to be environmentally friendly and support products made in the US, but don’t seem to have the time to follow through. “As a woman, small business owner concerned with the health of our environment I see the importance to the US economy of domestic green manufacturing,” commented owner Lynn Lavanga. “With the quick paced American lifestyle, most earth savvy consumers do not have the time to shop several stores or sites for green products. At stylishorganics.com, we strive to increase the products offered on our easy shop platform by continually researching new, green manufactured, earth friendly, made in the USA, products for every facet of green living. ”

Looking back on 2013, Stylish Organics added eco-friendly, made in the USA items to their line of recycled paper products, give back to nature plant-able paper products, green toys, organic clothing, eco home decor, and natural skin care. So what is in store for 2014? More of the same, as the e-commerce boutique is always on the search for new earth savvy items to add to their venue.
