Freezing in the Cold for Nothing

Yesterday I was relieved to have HVAC repair in NYC, because the heater in my home had not been working for a week. It randomly went out one day, and I didn’t have the money to get it repaired at the time, so I had to wait until my next paycheck came to call for a repair company to look at the heater. It was a terrible experience because the only way I could keep myself warm was by wearing a lot of clothing and staying under my blankets.

When I took showers in the morning and at night, I didn’t want to get out because of how cold the air felt. I would just sit there under the hot running water, letting it get all over my body and absorb the heat. As soon as I had to get out of the shower, the cold air would hit my skin and I hated it. I didn’t have a bath robe to put on, so I had to get to my room in a hurry with a towel wrapped around the lower portion of my body while I frantically reached for my clothes. Thinking back on it, I could have just gotten dressed in the bathroom.

As soon as I had the money for the repairs, I contacted a repair company and they were able to come over to fix my heater. A simple part was the one thing that was keeping my heater from functioning properly. It didn’t even cost much money to have the part replaced, so I could have gotten it done much sooner. I was mad that I went for so long without heat in my home, but I was also relieved, because I could turn on the heat and not sit in the cold, shivering under blankets.

Do Key Opinion Leaders like NetBase Quid really matter?

Key Opinion Leaders

If you’ve bought products or any services before or argued your case using opinion from someone you follow, visited blogs to get insight on new trends and products then a key opinion leader has influenced you.

Who are they?

Key opinion leaders are highly influential people, companies, or organizations whose opinions and recommendations are strongly considered before making any vital decisions. Reputable politicians, columnists, and celebrities are some of the best examples of this.

Their reputation in the society and community is highly valued, and they are listened to whenever critical issues are being discussed. People, companies, and organizations view them as true experts and trust them for what they do.

Most comments they make are most sought after by varieties of newspapers, podcasts, and morning shows, etc.

The difference between influencers and (KOLs)

People have different opinions when asked whether key opinion leaders and influencers are the same. KOLs are trusted experts in the industry and have amassed huge experience over time. However much it can boost their influence in their field, they necessarily don’t have to be visible on social media.

On the other hand, influencers hugely earn from social media platforms. Their credibility depends on their personality and what they share online. However, if they command immense respect, their followers assume they are KOLs.

What’s the origin of KOLs?

For those already in the public limelight, it’s quite simple to become an influencer. For example, it’s easy for actors in certain TV series, politically active individuals, and those working in a top expert position to become key opinion leaders.

To be specific, experts who give strong opinions about trending topics and new products can quickly gain respect.

But unknown persons can grow to become key opinion leaders with consistent effort. Even with little fame, and the right network, you can elevate yourself to that high status.

Why you need KOLs for marketing

Utilizing KOLs for your marketing is a genuine and honest gesture to your customers since no one would recommend a bad product to them. Market leaders also fear losing their reputation over the opinions they make on products.

Since people trust them, it’s easy to acquire genuine customers for your business. Their social status creates a feeling in people that they are well-known and their opinion is valued.

Choosing the right KOL

As a result of social media influence, there is an increased number of KOLs you can contact quickly. However, it’s important to be careful and get the right person to help you with your marketing problems, and one who will ensure your audience reacts to the content they post.

You first need to illustrate your goals of working with a market leader, and what to be measured. The advertiser should also visualize the results of this cooperation with the leader. What do we need? Videos, texts? What’s the desired audience and does the person get to talk in a TV commercial, or in our event?

Birds Beware: the Best Solutions for Outdoor Bird Pest Control

With summer in full force, you may be struggling to keep your outdoor area free of unwanted pests, including birds and geese. These lovely creatures can wreak havoc in gardens and other outdoor spaces, especially if they nest or forage on your property. Birds and geese also cause damage to roofs, gutters, causing financial strain and worry for homeowners. There are several options for preventative and proactive outdoor bird pest control that will keep your property free from the destructive situations a bird or geese could create.

First, bird spikes made from plastic or steel can prevent birds from entering private areas. Bird spikes are safe for native species in your area; this is a great solution for a preventative pest control solution. Bird netting is another preventative measure that can be implemented on homeowners’ properties. Essentially, birds and geese will choose to nest on bird netting, rather than damaging property. Bird netting is extremely effective for those with large outdoor properties including farms, as these will be installed in areas that are non-invasive to the property owner’s space. Bird netting also prevents birds, including sparrows and swallows, from entering into your garden areas.

For more challenging situations, you may consider implementing electric wire detterents or electric tracks. An electric wire is essentially a high tension control cable which is unstable, causing a bird to lose balance. Eventually, the bird will find another place to perch. These are highly effective in both commercial and residential properties. Electric tracks are shocks that will prevent a bird from landing or nesting in a specific area. These are also effective in commercial areas where bird nesting may be more widespread and within a larger area.

There are several options for outdoor bird pest control available, with a range of sustainbly made materials that are usable for years to come.

Making My Daughter’s Prom Day Perfect

My daughter is 17 years old and is in her senior year in high school. Sheis a top-notch student who has consistently remained on the honor roll throughout all of her years in school. Last year we lost my husband, her father, to cancer. Despite this tragedy, she has struggled but stayed on top of her studies and is doing well. Her senior prom is quickly approaching and I wanted to do something special for her and decided to hire a mobile airbrush makeup artist for prom night. I know she will be excited and hopefully, it will distract her from the pain of her father not being there to share in this day.

A friend of mine recently used a makeup artist for her wedding and she looked amazing. This is the artist I want for my daughter. I called my friend and got the contact information and made a call to the beauty professional to schedule the appointment. I knew my daughter was going to be beyond ecstatic when I planned on telling her about it that evening at dinner. And I was right. I gave her a nice card with all of the details inside. She screamed with excitement when she opened and read it. It melted my heart.

Prom day finally arrived and it was time to start getting ready. The makeup artist was phenomenal and did an amazing job with her makeup. She was absolutely breathtaking and I tried to hold back my tears but couldn’t. We all gathered around for the customary family pictures with my daughter and her date. She even had her picture taken while she was holding a photo of her dad to her heart. I know that was very difficult for her but know that her Dad was with her in spirit.
