Consumers hate surprises (shocker I know) and if you are a new business, they will want to know all about you before they come to you for your services. It’s no longer just a case of hearing about a great restaurant from a friend and hoping they were right. Instead, they want to immerse themselves in your menu and scroll through the reviews before making a decision on whether your establishment is worthy of a visit. If this information isn’t easily accessible via a simple Google search, you may as well not exist. Besides the obvious formal company website, the most effective way to build trust between you and the customer is through Facebook . The king of social media isn’t just for connecting with old high school frenemies; with 650 million views and thirteen million comments being made on local Facebook business pages, creating a profile for your organisation is an opportunity but a necessary obligation if you are serious about promoting your services.
Take note: A Facebook business page should not be treated like your website. You need to give it some regular TLC to make an impact. Here are four tips to do just that.
Keep your Page Up to Date
Want to add value to your page? Do so by keeping all your basic business information correct and current. Especially leading up into the busy holiday period, your hours of operation are likely to vary so keep your fans in the loop so they are not left out in the cold.

CAD software has become completely indispensable, as the mechanical, civil and electrical engineering industries join the technological age and firms investigate, detect and purchase programs that will streamline work processes. On the surface, sceptics consider CADs nothing but an expensive waste of resources and time, encouraging employees to become glorified graphic designers with little substance. Tech drawing has come a long way from the protractor, rulers and lead pencils of rudimentary architectural and product design, as three dimensional models and computer generations exhibit the possibilities of projects, including areas of improvement. Though the benefits of CAD modelling are numerous, here are five favourites to set any reserved minds at ease.
Increased productivity is hard to argue with, as CAD modelling allows the designer to envision the project as a complete entity, breaking it down according to subassemblies, parts and foundations, ensuring small slips are almost extinct and quality outcomes are achieved every time. Finished renderings can be animated, transforming a digital object into a working mechanism, allowing designers and developers to spot any inconsistencies or problems before it reaches the production stage. This hypothetical testing and synthesis of a product cuts down wasted time, as design notes are documented by drafts (saved for record keeping and posterity) and accompanying notes. The design process, as a whole being, streams sufficiently faster, saving money and delivering a task before or on time. Read the rest of Benefits of CAD Software Modelling »

Android or iPhone, Android or iPhone, a modern quandary for the first worlders among us, torn
between taking a bite of the apple, or diving into cyberspace with the droids. It’s no competition
really, as Apple continuously release “upgrades” masquerading as legitimate changes, while
functionality remains about the same and no real features make an appearance, beyond the
perfunctory tweaks to camera focus, LCD clarity and other small changes not at all worth a mention.
Android on the other hand, continuous to be innovative, experimental and highly customisable,
combining an easy to use OS with enough customisable extras to keep the most experienced tech
As we’ve already mentioned, Androids are designed to challenge experienced technological geeks

Often times in the smartphone market we see manufacturers focus on a few features in an attempt to give their phone some notoriety such as having a camera with the highest number of pixels, a large display, or a pretty design, while not even attempting to compete in other areas such as battery life and processing power. That doesn’t apply to the LG G2. This seems to be a phone that was created to be the best on the market period.
The hardware specs for the LG G2 are as follows: Read the rest of The LG G2 Pulls No Punches »
