Fortier Insurance Services Now Has a Business Owners Policy at an Affordable Price

Phelan, CA (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

One of the most important decisions as a business owner should be to purchase a Business Owner’s Policy. A business owner needs to realize that things don’t always go according to plan. Having a Business Owner’s Policy protects the salon owner from unforeseen circumstances. It not only protects the business’s assets, but also the clients.

A Business Owner’s Policy combines Property coverage and Liability coverage. Property coverage covers the building and the business’s personal property. If anything happens, the salon is quickly rebuilt or repaired. This could involve damage like a sewer and drain backup, broken windows, or computer breakdowns. Also included in a BOP is “Loss of Income.” If, for example, the damage to the building and/or the salon is so extensive that the salon is shut down, then not only will the business owner be compensated for lost income, but moving expenses as well.

General Liability coverage covers the business in the event of a lawsuit as a result of someone slipping and falling on the property, for example. It covers legal fees, court costs, and any judgments made against the business. Another important option is Professional Liability coverage. This insurance protects clients in case employees make a mistake and the client sues for damages. One scenario would be if an employee burns a client with hot wax, or a treatment is left on too long. Lawsuits can incur even if worker negligence wasn’t involved. If a client simply has an allergic reaction to a product, the business owner can still be held liable, and General Liability may not cover a particular claim. Product Liability insurance should be considered if there will be products for sale in the salon. It offers protection against any negative claims made by clients.

Worker’s Compensation insurance is purchased separately, and the penalties for not providing it to employees is quite severe. Employees are the business’s most important assets, so they should be protected against injuries on the job. Worker’s Compensation pays for an injured employee’s medical expenses, disability, and a portion of their earnings until they are able to return to work. It also prohibits them from suing the business.

Fortier Insurance Services has licensed insurance professionals who can answer questions on all the different policies available. They can help develop a complete insurance package that’s designed specifically to meet the needs of any business. Call 1-800-927-3566 for a free consultation.

Chatwing Dev Team Discusses the Importance of Linked Chatrooms to Various Website Owners


Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) June 15, 2013

With the launch of Chatwings chat network feature, many visitors have started seeing the potential of the chatroom. To highlight this potential even more, Chatwings developers reached out to website owners and explained the sheer importance of interconnected chatrooms. According to Chatwings developers, these linked chatrooms will speed up the way people connect with each other.

Better web exposure is the first point highlighted by Chatwings developers. Once chatrooms are linked, web users can gain information at a simultaneous rate. This is useful in active niches, such as technology and global current events. In technology sites alone, chatroom linking can help web users gain important information. It can be about tech tutorials, gadget tutorials, gadget reviewsbasically anything. This is why we are considering adding up a technology chat network. Other niches can ultimately benefit from the chat network, says Mike Diamonda core developer for Chatwing.com.

Online visibility is also discussed in several Chatwing chatrooms. Based on the test runs of the developers, the chat network feature can increase the online traffic rate of a website if its chatroom is linked to others. The effects can also be magnified if the website owner utilizes the importance of social media in the chat app. Currently, there are four social media login options: Facebook, Twitter, Google, and Yahoo. Website owners can rely on these sectors to market their sites well.

The Chatwing chat apps team is planning to conduct more online talks to communities in just weeks and months. They are also planning to hold short webinars about the importance of effective website chat. The developers also believe that all online marketing professionals can rely on the global connectivity ensured by the Chatwing chat software network option.

The Center for Small Business Recommends Top 2013 Resolution for Small Business Owners

Perkasie, PA (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Most small business owners start the new year with exactly the same goal as they had last year: grow their business. But they have little time or money to apply to this task, which is why it makes no sense to have a long laundry list of new years resolutions for your business. According to The Center for Small Business, if they are going to pick just one, then it should be adding low-cost online video to their website.

The problem for most small businesses is how to get found. The Yellow Pages, newspaper ads, and local radio spots may still be effective for a few small niche businesses, but in general, the return on investment for these is terrible for typical small business owners.

One of the key ways to get found these days is through Google searches. And a website has to turn up on the first page of the search if it is going to get any traffic. On average, adding a short video to a website makes the site 53 times more likely to show up on the first page of a Google search.

Beyond that, online video also helps get the companys message across to customers and prospects much more effectively. Studies show that adding video to a website will result in 20 percent more phone calls and 33 percent more clicks. It will also increase visitor time on the page by an average of 344 percent. Perhaps most important of all, a recent study showed that visitors who like a video on a company site were 92 percent more likely to buy the companys product or service. Thats nearly twice as likely.

The best news about online video is that it does not take a lot of time or money, and you dont even have to own a camera or know how to use a computer. According to Alfred Poor, president of The Center for Small Business, online video is the secret weapon for small business owners. It gives them the same benefits as it does for much larger companies, but it can be extremely inexpensive and can deliver the most bang for the buck and time when it comes to marketing a small business.

About The Center for Small Business: The Center for Small Business is dedicated to helping small businesses grow and prosper. We recognize that very small companies have needs that are quite different from those of large corporations. We deliver practical solutions designed to make the most of a companys scarce resources: time and money. Founder and president Alfred Poor is a writer, speaker, and trainer with a worldwide reputation. He is the author of Power Marketing for Small Business How you can boost sales with low-cost video as well as more than a dozen other books. He has experience as a guest on television and radio, and was co-host of a live radio show in New York City for more than eight years. He presents his upbeat message with energy and humor, and welcomes the opportunity for live interaction with audience members.

Business Owners Are Learning New Content Marketing Ideas from SEO Consultants


Littleton, Colorado (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

Content Marketing is a new focus for business owners needing to attract search engines and humans to their company web site. Outdated SEO tactics are being gradually replaced by a new focus on improving content quality both on-site and off-site.

With the constant changes and upgrades occurring in the search engine software programs that evaluate and assign rankings to websites, its been a whipsaw ride for professional search engine optimization (SEO) expert companies needing to communicate best practice internet marketing recommendations and techniques to their clients.

Web site ranking methods and tactics used in prior years that used to be effective can now end up being problematic based on the new software updates that search engines are consistently rolling out. Attracting targeted traffic naturally to the company web site now and in the future will require raising the bar on quality by paying more attention to generating quality web content that is a step above the competition, which keeps web site visitors engaged and coming back for more.

As far as search engine ranking positions are concerned, the shift has gone back and forth between focusing on the incoming links leading into a website as compared with focusing upon on the readable content that is published and read on web pages. Today its becoming clearer that upgrading content sells and provides real lasting benefits, and can actually become a new competitive advantage for companies looking for ways to improve their web assets. If site visitors do not appreciate your content presentation they wont be coming back to your site any time soon, which means potential lost sales opportunities.

Both SEO expert consultants and business owners need to be in the content publishing and content marketing business whether they like it or not! Businesses marketing their products and services online should realize that expanding their content volume and quality is becoming a critical element in improving web site performance versus their competitors. Expanding web content should be part of the business plan. Content marketing ideas and recommendations from SEO consultants provide the needed catalyst for implementing change based upon an agreed upon plan.

Whether its the message written on a web page, or a blog post written about your topic thats published on a completely different web site, the content message needs to be interesting, concise, and serve a real purpose of relevance with the capability to solve a problem or resolve a question or query.

In years past, search engines were less finicky about content quality scores and more concerned with other website ranking signals such as keyword density percentages. Todays search engine has sophisticated intelligence that goes beyond simple evaluation and gets more into predicting how humans will actually respond to a particular web page design and layout, visible words message and presentation, graphical images, as well as to a host of other ranking elements taken into consideration for rating the overall worthiness of a document thats published on the internet.

As the months and years progress, every aspect of competing on the internet becomes more and more competitive. If businesses intend to compete successfully moving into the future, they need to stake out as much written words 'real estate' as possible and increase their online published footprint to improve their chances of getting found amid the thousands of new web sites coming online daily. In most cases this means boosting content quality and volumes on-site and off-site and working with outside content writing experts or copy writers, which can be both cost effective and efficient. Having somebody internally working on the company social media profile is simply not enough in most cases.

Improving content by making it more interesting, informative, entertaining, or authoritative, can have a direct positive correlation with gradually moving up web sites closer to that #1 coveted position in Google rankings, which, according to sources can lead to getting around 40% of the human clicks for the top position. Its worth the investment to continually strive for excellence and seek out expert advice for all inbound marketing channels used such as search engine optimization, content marketing services, press release writing and distribution, publishing interesting white papers, link building, e-newsletters, business blogging, article marketing, research report documents in .pdf form, and a host of other legitimate marketing methods used to attract people into your marketing funnel.

Content is not only about the words and text on your own site's pages; its also about the content and the quality of content published elsewhere outside your site and linking back. There are numerous SEO Articles published on the topic of linking relationships on the web.

Links leading back to your site from other sites, blogs, or social media profiles such as Google + should be surrounded by well-written content thats similar in nature to your chosen topic. One main objective of publishing on outside sites is to in effect create a funnel of sorts where people can discover your content in various channels, and then be sufficiently enough impressed to follow embedded links back to the main site or landing page where theyll accept the desired call to action offer that can lead to a sale.

The good news is that well-written content builds the company brand online; helps contribute to higher search engine rankings, can be great for public relations, and can be consistently generated by copy writing experts and then published effectively once the game plan is in place.

Donkey Portable Press Box Owners Pile Even More Uses on to Their Scoring Platforms


Royersford, PA (PRWEB) September 12, 2012

AAE (Aluminum Athletic Equipment Co.), a leading U.S. manufacturer of sports equipment, recently discovered through personal interviews and limited market research that customers have a multitude of ways in which their portable press boxes, branded as Donkeys, can serve their sports teams.

While Donkeys mainly function as elevated scorers tables, research revealed even more creative ways that customers are using the units. Actual Donkey owners have continued to expand upon the multi-purpose label assigned to this product. Many have disclosed that they sometimes sell food, drinks and even tickets right out of it down on the sidelines. A couple of schools that host regional track meets say the Donkey is ideal as a check-in station because of its visible presence within a crowd of athletes and coaches. And one Donkey owner proudly announced that his school uses it as an athletics fundraiser by auctioning off VIP seats. What parent doesnt want to have a perfect, close-up view of the whole field during their kids game?

These alternative uses for the Donkey product line have even laid the groundwork for their latest advertising campaign with a Fall 2012 launch, the company has high hopes for its success. The list of owners already boasts some leading athletic programs, including: University of Pennsylvania, Georgetown University, Duke University, U.S. Naval Academy, James Madison University, Skidmore College, University of Florida, St. Josephs University, University of Michigan, Tennessee Tech University, St. Louis University, University of Maryland, University of Louisville, Cornell University, Glenbard West H.S., Episcopal Academy and many more.

Originally, the portable Donkeys were considered multi-purpose because they: 1) can be used for multiple sports, 2) serve a storage function, 3) offer a built-in penalty bench, 4) feature elevation for better viewing and broadcasting, and 5) protect occupants from the weather. Donkeys come in four different base models and two packages that include an attached Birds Nest Video Tower. Donkeys can be purchased in a variety of configurations, including: with or without storage, with or without canopies, custom banners with your teams logo, contoured seating, penalty benches, seat cushions, and even tinted plexi-glass paneling.

AAE has prided itself on this type of innovation since inventing and patenting the aluminum rocker hurdle in 1950 for the track marketplace. Over the decades, AAE has introduced a multitude of new products for use by coaches and athletes worldwide. With the use of advanced technology and design innovations, the firm makes over 500 items, including: track hurdles; track starting blocks; discus cages; hammer cages; shot cages; pole vault pits; high jump pits; long jump pits; permanent football goalposts, portable football goal posts, rotating or hinged football goal posts; semi-permanent or portable soccer goals; field hockey goals; lacrosse goals; baseball batting cages; baseball foul poles; ball stopper protective sports netting; portable press boxes; team benches; portable bleachers and Kronum goals. AAE develops, fabricates and assembles most products at its Royersford headquarters and manufacturing location near Philadelphia.

Wild Game Network to Form Foundation to Benefit South Dakota Resort Owners


Ankeny IA (PRWEB) March 30, 2012

Where have all the outdoorsmen and women gone? Competition from organized sports programs, the internet, computer games and a shortened summer vacation season (from 12-15 weeks to as little as 8 weeks) have all resulted in the reality that South Dakota Resort Owners are left with a very small window to generate business.

In todays world, changing circumstances have impacted the family vacation. School now starts earlier, with opening dates moving back from Sept 1st to Aug 15th, eliminating half of August for family vacations. In August 2011 the Sports Letter reported that participation in sports by youth increased for the 22nd straight year. Sports such as soccer, softball, hockey, and golf have created travel teams which have led to an increased commitment of family time for sports. With this growth family activities have changed. Now, weekend and summer plans are made to travel to remote cities and states to participate in tournaments and club events. The net result is that the get-away vacation to a cabin or resort for the family has evolved into attending events at ball fields, sports complexes and gymnasiums. As youth sports rotate throughout the year, weekend and vacation family time has shifted away from quality time at lakes, resorts and campgrounds all of which negatively impacts South Dakota Resort Owners.

The mission of the Wild Game Network Foundation is to invest in marketing and communications to motivate children and their parents to get off their seat and on their feet to enjoy the great outdoors by a lake, on a river or in the woods at a South Dakota Resort.

Wild Game Network will partner with other organizations that have similar goals and will utilize all forms of advertising, including internet, print, radio, newspaper and television to educate and excite both kids and parents into planning a trip to the great outdoorshealthy, family focused activities.

Who is Wild Game Network?

Wild Game Network was created by sportsmen for sportsmen and women who wanted an easy to use on-line travel website for the hunting, fishing and camping industry. Through their own personal experiences, the founders recognized that an organized single resource did not exist to meet the needs of both potential customers and resort owners. The creative result is http://www.wildgamenetwork.com, a web-site that caters to all North American and Canadian outdoor enthusiasts. Plans are in place to expand WGNs marketing reach to regions throughout North America and Canada. With resort owners support, costs can be minimized to promote individual resorts many features, provide for opportunities to list properties for sale and enable maximization of creative web-site content. Thanks to the founders of Wild Game Network, South Dakota Resort Owners now have the ultimate resource to network with all sportsmen and women to help them locate their next "wild" adventure and help resort owners profitably grow business.
