Geo-Targeting Can Boost Your Manhattan Beach Home Business

Friday, November 30th, 2012

Geo-Targeting Can Boost Your Manhattan Beach Home BusinessJust because your Los Angeles online business can sell to anyone on the globe, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try to appeal to the customer next door. Specifying the markets you are targeting is an effective strategy for Manhattan Beach internet business owners.

ListPipe, the corporate blogging authority, explains how localization can help your Manhattan Beach home business e-store or blog:

The first reason is to appeal to the search engines for Los Angeles search results. With the popularity and widespread use of mobile devices, search engines have been quick to respond with results based on location.

When you search for ‘haircut’, for example, Google assumes you want to know where there are salons near your actual California location. Some devices provide an exact GPS coordinate for pinpoint accuracy. Others identify your general location from the receivers, routers, and other hardware through which your device is communicating.

Manhattan Beach home business bloggers that include specific geo-locations will be more likely to show up in Los Angeles area search results.

Another important reason for Manhattan Beach entrepreneurs to get local with their content is to generate a connection with your Manhattan Beach and Southern California customers. While it’s always important to talk about the value of your products, you can add blurbs about a popular Los Angeles sports team, current California event, or unique local culture. This personalizes your Manhattan Beach home business blog posts and boosts your popularity. Most California folks love where they live and have a connection to other people in their Los Angeles community. Let your audience know that you are one of them.

Now here’s the trick: make your content relevant to your business objectives. You can’t just mention the local sports team or a current event without tying it to your business in some way. Otherwise, you appear to ramble or pander inexplicably to your online business blog visitors.

I am health advocate Patti Langell. I coach new Manhattan Beach internet business entrepreneurs and help them sell their products and services on the online marketplace. I use a variety of methods to market my Xe energy drink business and recruit distributors to my Xe energy drink direct sales network. Let me help you succeed: call 310-200-7097 today!

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier California Homes

Chemical-free Cleaning For Healthier California Homes

Hello California! Los Angeles parents do such a great job at keeping their children safe and healthy. They help them with homework, take them to parks and museums, keep up on their well-child visits and immunizations, and feed them healthy well-rounded diets. Here is one more thing parents can do for their children’s health.

Because we live in such a chemical-filled world, any time parents can cut down on the amounts of chemicals used in the home, the better. Here are a few ways to do that using something you probably already have in your pantry: white vinegar.

  • Clean windows with a spray bottle filled with 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup of white vinegar, and a dab of liquid dish soap. Make sure you label the bottle and keep it out of the reach of children.
  • Clean your drains and pipes with 1 cup baking soda, and 1 cup hot white vinegar. Let it sit for a few minutes, and then rinse the drain with hot water. The baking soda and vinegar will foam up in the pipes, and clean away debris and germs.
  • Deodorize your home by boiling a mixture of water and white distilled vinegar in a pot. The vinegar odor will only last a few minutes, and will carry away odors with it.
  • Use distilled white vinegar to keep ants away from your home. Spray undiluted distilled white vinegar along the outside of your home wherever they like to come in.

There are many other natural home cleaning products: just search the internet! Good luck Southern California parents – you are wonderful, and so are your children!

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In Orange County

Preventing Teen Prescription Drug Abuse In Orange County

Hello, welcome to my Orange County children’s health and nutrition blog. Today’s topic is teen prescription drug abuse.

Most Orange County teens will be offered an illegal prescription medication at one time or another. They are sold at California high schools and passed out at teen ‘pharm’ parties. California parents should realize that no child is immune. Here are some tips for Orange County parents from Better Medicine: 1

Start talking about the dangers when they’re preteens. Speak early, often, and clearly.
Stay involved in your child’s life.
Emphasize how misusing medication can destroy relationships and keep him or her from achieving goals, such as getting into a certain college or landing a future job.
Teach your child to say ‘no’ firmly but kindly, give a reason, then change the subject or leave the situation.
Monitor your child’s internet usage for signs of prescription drug involvement.1

Orange County parents should keep their medications locked away. It is also important to realize that children watch how their mother and father use prescription medications. I encourage all Los Angeles parents to use prescription meds safely and legally.

Los Angeles area Children And Vitamins

Los Angeles area Children And Vitamins

Many parents in the Los Angeles area are interested in proper nutrition for their children and they want to make sure their kids are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need. Before parents assume that their children need supplemental vitamins, here are a few things to consider.

By far, the best way to meet your child’s nutritional needs is with real, whole foods. Even picky eaters are likely getting what they need since many common foods are fortified with necessary vitamins and minerals.

Next time you’re shopping at your Orange County, Los Angeles area, or Southern California grocery store, try to buy a rainbow of fruits and vegetables. Also, look for whole grains when buying bread and pasta.

Make sure you’re providing regular balanced meals and healthy snacks for your children.

Since vitamins and supplements do carry some risks, you should consult with your Manhattan Beach pediatrician about their use. If one is recommended for your child, be sure it is an age-appropriate product.

My name is Patti Langell and I want to help Los Angeles families to raise healthy, happy kids.
Issues such as proper nutrition for children and childhood obesity in Orange County concern me. I am the owner of a Los Angeles area home business that sells xobiotic.

Orange County Home Business Tax Write-Offs

Friday, November 16th, 2012

Orange County Home Business Tax Write-Offs

Hello home based business owners in Orange County! Today’s blog is about saving money with home business tax write-offs. If you are running your own direct sales business or online store out of your Orange County home, you can take advantage of several tax breaks.

A percentage of your rent or mortgage and utilities can be deducted. If you use your computer exclusively for running your business, you may be able to write off the entire purchase price. Don’t forget to include the monthly fee to your internet service provider (I put this expense under the utilities category mentioned previously.)

Gasoline and auto maintenance expenses can take a large chunk of your income, especially as Orange County gas prices continue to rise. Don’t forget to expense the business portion of your transportation costs.

You can’t write off 100 percent of business meals eaten in Los Angeles restaurants, but you may be able to expense 50 percent. The amount may seem too little to bother with, or on the other hand, it may surprise you. The key to getting the most tax savings possible is keeping good records and adding up all the little savings.

Here’s wishing all Orange County home business owners a smaller tax bill this year!

Food Allergies In Los Angeles area Children

Wednesday, November 14th, 2012

Food Allergies In Los Angeles area Children The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology estimates that around eight percent of U.S. kids are affected by food allergies.

Eight foods account for most children’s food allergies in Los Angeles: eggs, fish, milk, peanuts, shellfish, soy, nuts, and wheat. Strawberries and tomatoes can also cause food allergies in young Los Angeles area kids, though generally not in adults.

Type and severity of allergy symptoms in Los Angeles kids vary, but may show up as itchy eyes, nose or throat, trouble breathing, gastrointestinal upset, or hives.

If you suspect your child may have a food allergy, keep a food journal of everything he or she eats (including beverages) for a week to show your Southern California pediatrician. To confirm the diagnosis, your doctor may scratch the skin with a small amount of an allergen to observe the reaction.

Los Angeles or to inquire about the nutritional superstar xobiotic, contact my office today.

Should Manhattan Beach Online Sellers Respond To Negative Reviews?

Thursday, November 8th, 2012

Should Manhattan Beach Online Sellers Respond To Negative Reviews? As a mentor for new Manhattan Beach online business owners, I am mindful of how search engine dynamics affect home based business owners with online stores.

There are two schools of thought about negative reviews: To respond or not to respond.

In an article in the Direct Selling News, author Don Sorenson very effectively explains why responding to negative reviews may increase the harm to your online reputation. I believe the points that Mr. Sorenson makes regarding negative reviews are important for every Manhattan Beach online seller.

I quote from Mr. Sorenson’s article:

‘When you see a negative review about your company the instinctive reaction is to post a response to set the record straight. I understand the human need to respond, but you have to consider Google’s point of view. Here’s why: Search engines rank various websites high for a few reasons, one of which is relevant content, especially when that content is updated on a regular basis.’

‘When you post a comment on a website, you are in effect giving it new content. And if you get into a back-and-forth discussion with someone on a review website about your company, Google thinks ‘Ah, there’s a lot about this company here, so we’ll rank this website high for searches on their company name.’

‘Now when someone does a search on your company, they are even more likely to see the negative review. You want to avoid that. In fact, you want the websites with negative comments to slip further down the Google rankings so they don’t appear on the first page or two of a search.’ Don Sorenson, “Protecting Your Company’s Online Reputation,” Direct Selling News, March 2011, http://www.directsellingnews.com/index.php/site/entries_archive_display/protecting_your_companys_online_reputation April 2, 2011

Of course, Manhattan Beach home business owners should respond to complaints by actual customers with legitimate problems. However, consider carefully whether your customer service efforts should take place in an online public forum.

Other social media experts believe it helps a company in the long run to respond to negative reviews. Here is a link to an article that supports this view: http://mackcollier.com/study-responding-to-negative/

I hope this helps Manhattan Beach online business owners understand the ramifications of responding to negative online reviews.

AAP Immunization Information For Southern California Parents

Wednesday, November 7th, 2012

AAP Immunization Information For Southern California Parents In the past century, the rates of many serious diseases in the United States have significantly declined, in some cases, they have been virtually eradicated.

Many Southern California people have never met a person with measles, polio, small pox, rubella, tetanus, or diphtheria; though these diseases killed thousands of California children in past generations.

One of the main reasons many dangerous communicable childhood diseases have been minimized in our area is due to Los Angeles children’s immunizations. The increase in immunization use has gone a long way to improve health in our California communities.

Recently, I have noticed that many Southern California parents are questioning the children’s immunization schedule. I came across an informative American Academy of Pediatrics FAQ sheet that addresses most of the common concerns.

The AAP document entitled ‘The Vaccine Schedule, Why Is It Like That?,’ can be downloaded at http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/immunizations.cfm

I certainly learned a lot after reading the FAQ sheet and thought I would tell you about it here in my Southern California children’s health blog.

I think it is important for all Southern California parents like myself to be reminded of the scientific evidence that supports the use of the immunization schedule.

I am Southern California children’s health advocate Patti Langell. Call me at 310-200-7097 to learn about my favorite healthy snack for California kids.

Manhattan Beach Sun Safety

Friday, November 2nd, 2012

Manhattan Beach Sun Safety

Many California families enjoy spending time together outside. Whether it is in the mountains or at the beach, fresh air and sunshine make family time a fun time. Manhattan Beach parents should make sure that their children are adequately protected from UV rays when enjoying outside time. Young skin can burn easily and one severe sunburn in childhood increases the chance of developing melanoma later in life two-fold. California babies should not even be exposed to the sun. Cover them with clothing and keep them in the shade. When your Manhattan Beach child is six months old, limited exposure to UV rays is okay, but use a healthy dose of sunscreen and common sense. The sunscreen sold at your Manhattan Beach supermarket or drugstore should be applied thirty minutes before your kids go outside.

If you are enjoying time at the pool or beach make sure to regularly reapply often.  When my kids swim at the Los Angeles pool they take many breaks in the shade to reapply sunscreen and hydrate. My name is Patti Langell and I am a Manhattan Beach-based Xe energy drink representative and an advocate for California children’s health. There are many things to worry about as a parent., but I never have to worry about the healthy snacks I give my kids. If you are interested in Southern California children’s health and healthy snacking contact me today!
