Water Saving Strategies for the California Drought

A water balloon fight or even sipping a cool glass of ice water on a hot day isn’t a big deal in most of the country. California residents however have a different view of these activities. In their drought-stricken cities, water is a precious commodity. The extended drought has towns imposing mandatory restrictions on residential water use. Take a look at how far Californians are going in order to conserve water.

Lawn Care

Artificial Options

If you’ve seen a green lawn in California recently, the color isn’t natural. Homeowners are increasingly opting for artificial turf in lieu of browned grass. Astroturf has come a long way since the 1970s. It is now available in multiple grass heights and two-toned muted greens that closely resemble a natural lawn.

Don’t Make these Mistakes with your Customers

For any business, it’s important to know what your customers want and need. It’s what gives you an edge over your competitors. Offering targeted deals is one of the best ways to connect with your customers and show them you have what they need. Sounds easy, right? The concept of targeted marketing is simple, but implementing it is a big challenge for most companies. Avoid these mistakes when offering your customers targeted deals. 

What Are Targeted Deals?

In an era of online retail and easy price comparisons, most customers are looking for big savings when they shop for goods and services. Companies that personalize their offerings can provide additional incentives to their clients. Reaching out to customers requires showing them you have exactly the types of deals they’re looking for. Companies do this to a greater or lesser extent through traditional advertising. The advent of big data means that more information is available at your fingertips than ever before. Businesses now have greater access to the actual purchasing and shopping habits of their target audience. Reaching customers is easier thanks to the multiple ways that companies can communicate; through direct mail, email marketing and social media. However, customers can be turned off by poorly executed messaging.

Strategies for Sharing a Small Space

Sharing a small apartment with another person can be challenging, especially if your personalities are different. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help keep the peace. Use these strategies to make the most of your compact space and establish mutually respectful ground rules.

Use the Power of Illusion
