NorCal Containers: Sacramento’s Best Priced Cargo Containers

Posted on

Be Sociable, Share!

sacramento cargoAt NorCal Containers of Sacramento, California, the goal is to see our customers set up with shipping containers that fit their specific needs. Containers are suitable for the sizes of their shipments. A container might also have to satisfy special requirements depending on what the client is shipping and where: clothing, electronics, toys, etc. Our Sacramento cargo containers are both new and used but always affordably priced. We let clients decide between new containers and used ones which have been carefully inspected so they meet industry standards.

Sacramento and Beyond

NorCal customers come from three states: California, Nevada, and Oregon. Our clients have two choices of container length: 40 feet and 20 feet plus standard height or cubes to pack in more inventory. Consider the contents, and where and how they will be transported to your final destination. Clients choose from several types of cargo grades which represent the quality of container. There are standard cargo worthy containers, cargo worthy-plus, the wind and water-tight containers, and IICL which stands for Institute of International Container Lessors. Their rules pertain to the most stringent possible ratings on used containers. Containers are further graded upon the appearance of dents and scratches, plus the items they are suitable to ship or store such as food or garments; items that are vulnerable to weather or pests, for example. Wind and water-tight are actually one of the lowest possible grades, but at NorCal, this will still be a quality item at a reasonable price. “One Trip” hire refers to containers that have been sent from an overseas location filled with items for a single journey and are virtually new.

Delivery Types

Clients of NorCal Sacramento cargo containers can possibly arrange emergency delivery or next-day delivery if they are in a hurry because their own clients are demanding urgent turn-around. Feel free to call our office to find out about the availability of containers and prices.

Sacramento Service

Service starts in California but customers in all three states can and should expect the highest possible level of service. NorCal is in a position to make guarantees because:

• we do not hire trucks and drivers: we run a fleet and hire our drivers, which enables us to fully control the service clients receive
• containers are only released after we have inspected them personally
• NorCal is family-owned: our reputation means a lot to us and speaks volumes to customers

Competitive Container Pricing

Customers in the City of Trees and beyond will not find a better deal on new or used containers. Clients are right to wonder how a firm can secure such great pricing, but it is a simple matter of volume plus integrity. We buy large amounts of stock at one time. We also pay our own bills promptly. This enables NorCal to receive the best service from suppliers and to secure excellent prices which we can then pass on to clients in the three states covered. Another cost savings for us — and customers — is the use of fuel-efficient vehicles and trailers. Transportation with these late-model trucks and great fuel mileage reduces costs to us and creates an environmentally responsible fleet.

Why Is Investing Time In Social Media SEO A Good Idea?

Posted on

Be Sociable, Share!

One effective SEO tactic that many companies fail to invest sufficient time in is social media SEO. Optimizing a site for social media searches may seem unproductive but it does has a lot to offer and can be quite profitable if done properly. Following are some reasons why every company should pay attention to this form of search engine optimization.

Results are Attainable

It is no secret that Google is, by far, the largest search engine and the one that gets the most traffic. However, this also means that the competition is fiercer on Google than it is anywhere else. Companies that do not have the resources to compete with large brand names on Google will find that attaining a high ranking for relevant search queries on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube is much easier. What is more, these search engines combined receive millions of searches every month.

It Will Impact Search Engines

While it is not clear how much Google relies on social features when determining site placement, it is a known fact that the giant search engine has shown an increased interest in social media. Google and Bing have started working with Twitter and Facebook to include social status updates in their search engine results and Google’s upcoming algorithm update is likely to rely more on social media than past updates. Optimizing a social networking site for relevant keywords is almost certain to have a positive impact on a site’s standing in Google, if not now, then in the near future.

Additionally, Google owns YouTube and Google always lists related YouTube videos on the first page of its search engine results. A company that optimizes video content that it puts on YouTube could easily find that video appearing on the first page of relevant Google search engine queries. What is more, this placement can be earned without having to invest a single cent in online marketing.

It Boosts Traffic

A brand name that has a high ranking on various social media platforms is likely to be recognizable to people from all walks of life. This is invaluable to a business, as research has made it clear that people are more likely to buy goods and/or services from a company they know, as opposed to one they have never heard of before. What is more, optimized social media sites also increase brand loyalty. While these two factors do not directly impact search engine results, they do have a bearing on the volume of search engine traffic one receives. This has a positive, albeit indirect, impact on a website’s rank, as traffic is one factor Google uses to determine site placement.

Social media SEO is not just another way to impact search engines. It is a field that does not get as much attention as it should; offering companies the opportunity to attain a high social media search engine standing fairly easily. Any company that is looking for ways to reach more potential customers should seriously consider social media SEO and how it can be used to increase traffic and sales.

Some parts of the fruit contain a substance called Hydroxycitric Acid, which is the primary ingredient that produces the results.

Sacramento Blogger Offers More Than Style Tips

Posted on

Be Sociable, Share!

classically claire fashion bloggerClassically Claire is an innovative women’s fashion blog that features the most modern women’s fashion trends. The blog’s creator and main writer, Claire Warner, is a Sacramento, California resident with a penchant for bright colors, fun floral accents, and sparkling costume jewelry that results in a sunny and carefree–yet pulled together final look.  The blog truly embodies the relaxed California style!  Warner, who began her career in interior and home design, discovered relatively early on that her true passion was in apparel design and styling—which, unsurprisingly, became the driving force behind the popular blog.

Aside from traditional style tips and tricks, Classically Claire also offers a “shop” section where the writer often features gift ideas and suggestions for the upcoming holiday (Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas, etc.) as well as products and retailers currently hocking the season’s most attractive hand bags, sunglasses, seasonal essentials, and drool worthy desk additions aimed to spice up even the blandest of office environments.  A personal favorite is the Coachella Cravings section, which aimed to outfit April’s music festival goers with the latest threads and sun safety accessories. My favorite items included the bo ho chic wide brimmed hat and retro inspired cat eye sunglasses to ward off the heat-of-the-day rays. I also appreciate the addition of a bright pink water bottle as a means for fashionable hydration while in the Southern California desert.

Another prominent component of Classically Claire is the professional, high resolution photos featured within this fashion blog for women. These are a favorite among readers, as typically each post contains multiple photos of the featured style or item at varied angles and perspectives. This is a great way for readers to obtain ideas for mimicking the style or better understand the craftsmanship, quality or fabric blends used throughout. Photos also tend to hone in on accessories that are paired with the innovative couture. I am sure we all realize that the perfectly selected pair of kitten heels, pop of bright color, or jewelry aimed to elevate the right outfit, has the ability to take a look from a middle of the road five to an impressive ten.

Claire is great at featuring these additions! Classically Claire also does a great job of introducing what were once considered un-pair able colors and patterns. One of my favorite posts features ideas for combining striped and plaid. (Who would have thought, but somehow it works!) Learning that a simplistic, tight flannel plaid pattern works best with a pin stripe bottom is such a fresh take on something retro. As mentioned above, adding the right accessories—in this case I gravitate to the suggested brown leather wrap bracelets, a chunky gold watch and perfectly worn-in ankle boots—serve as the ideal finishing touch.

Clair also seems to live by the rule that you can easily elevate any piece—effortlessly transition from day to night worth attire. Her suggestions apply to real world girls, and offer a fresh, creative take on the most popular clothing and accessory options on the market.

5 Steps to Find The Right SEO

Posted on

Be Sociable, Share!

About 10 years ago there were not many people that knew Online Marketing and SEO. Over the last 5 years this industry has boomed and become saturated. Here in the Sacramento California Capitol City, it was estimated that there were over 44,000 private businesses in Sacramento, in the year 2012.
While all these businesses will need online help, how can you find the right SEO or Online Marketing Agency?

1. First, go to Google and type in the keywords you’re looking for.( your keyword + your city or state) ie. Dallas Internet Marketing Company, California seo expert, seo San Francisco, etc etc

2. You can now see who is ranking themselves for keywords. You always want to make sure the company your hire is ranking themselves for local AND other competitive keywords.

3. Check their reviews. They should have testimonials on their site as well as 3rd party sites, such as LinkedIn, Google Local, and maybe even Yelp.

4. Pricing: A professional SEO is not going to be charging $199 or $500 a month. SEO is a big job and takes a lot of work, and how realistic is it to assume someone is going to build your business and increase your income, for only $500/month? It’s not realistic at all.

5. Make sure they specialize in SEO and are not a web developer. Web developers are not SEO specialists and vice-versa. You wouldn’t want to hire a car mechanic to remodel your bathroom, it’s just a different trade. So, don’t hire a web developer to do your SEO.

I hope these 5 tips were helpful, if you’d like more tips you can check out this video below for more tips on seo and web development.
