Small Businesses: Hiring A Digital Marketing Agency

Should you hire the help of a digital marketing agency? If you’re a small business owner, you should probably think about it. It can be hard to keep up with the ever-evolving marketing battlefield. Finding a competent and compatible employee is also hard to come by when dealing with tasks that can half or double your revenue. Long gone are the days of simply spreading through word of mouth, only unicorns and luck support this method and I’m willing to bet that you dont want to leave your busines

Should 20-30 year olds invest in life insurance?

If you’re a 20 to 30 year old, chances are that you’ve never considered purchasing a life insurance plan. It may seem silly because you’re young, healthy or don’t have any dependents that would be affected if you suddenly passed away. However, this is the skewed perspective of a young person who thinks they’re invincible and wont develop any serious health condition until they’re well into their 70s or 80s.

Your Lab Ate What?! Here’s What to do Next

As curious puppies with big appetites, young Labrador retrievers tend to be good eaters. But sometimes this trait can lead to the puppies eating things beyond their puppy food. Toys, socks, leaves, sticks, and other pets’ food are examples of things Labrador puppies may decide to chew on or eat. Some Labrador puppies actually learn to hover in the kitchen, waiting for someone to drop human food on the floor to eat it quickly before it can be picked up.

Be Prepared for Disasters

Workplace safety is a topic of importance for most companies, as it keeps employees safe and productive, reduces liability issues, and prevents unneeded interruptions during business hours. Many businesses focus on the importance of safety for their workers as it pertains to everyday operations, but it is not uncommon for a company to overlook creating and implementing a comprehensive safety and preparedness plan for emergencies and disasters that may strike.

New Insurance Agent With No Direct Appointments? Here Are Three Things To Do Right Now

With no direct appointments, a new agent or agency is dead in the water. But it’s not like carriers are just giving out appointments to any and every new agent who asks for them. They prioritize agents with a track record of success, business plan, and profitable territory. This leaves new agents having to find alternatives to booking appointments. I’d like to discuss those alternatives like joining a cluster, starting as a captive agent, and partnering with a digital wholesaler in this piece.

History Of The Zipper

The first person to apply for a patent for an “Automatic Continuos Clothing Closure” was Elias Howe in 1851. He didn’t pay enough attention to the marketing, so he missed out on the opportunity of making even more millions. I would like to talk about this, the history of the world’s flyest fastener (the zipper) and more in my proposed piece for UCAN Zippers. I will go into detail about the history of the zipper and talk about the modern day zipper and how it has evolved.
