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.

The Farm-to-Fork Capital: Sight Seeing In Sacramento, California

Be Sociable, Share!

Sunny Sacramento offers a vast array of tourist activities for those looking to explore, adventure, or simply unwind. You can visit railroad museums, tickle your palette with wines, or dine to your heart’s content in America’s so-called Farm-to-Fork capital. Home to some of the most impressive landmarks, historical attractions, and cultural haunts in the state, Sacramento sight seeing can never be dull.

California State Railroad Museum

Take a unique trip down memory lane when you stop by the California State Railroad Museum, which displays restored locomotives and railroad cars. Fascinating exhibits, including sleeper cars and fully furnished dining cars which visitors can explore, illustrate the rich history of railroads and how they have influenced California’s economy and culture today. There are model trains and child-oriented areas to keep kids entertained as well.

Wineries

With more than 200 wineries within the city’s periphery, it is no great surprise that many tourists come to Sacramento for the wine. Many wineries are a one-hour drive away, and most offer free wine sampling.  Vineyard tours are also available, where tourists get to see the winemaking process in the company of fellow wine enthusiasts. Often, the winemakers themselves come to greet visitors personally, making for a more intimate and enjoyable experience.

Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park

Sutter’s Fort evokes images of the olden days of the Gold Rush.  The park was named after Swiss immigrant John Sutter, whose efforts eventually established Sacramento’s earliest known settlement. A museum exhibit containing some of Sutter’s personal effects also offers an authentic glimpse of the pioneer’s life in early California.

Fairytale Town

A must-visit for tourists with children, Fairytale Town contains fairytale-themed areas, and two performing arts stages, among other attractions. It also has various animals like sheep and baby goats which kids can play with. Lastly, the beautifully landscaped learning gardens allow kids to enjoy a nice educational experience outside the classroom.

There’s never a shortage of fun activities to do when Sacramento sight seeing. Most of its tourist sites are not only steeped in American culture, but are also rightfully considered world-class. That being said, you should definitely consider adding Sacramento to your next vacation itinerary.

Sacramento Business owners are rushing to get their businesses online. As more and more customers are leaving the yellow pages and searching for goods and services online many local Sacramento business owners are now seeing the necessity for a strong Internet Marketing plan.

As Online Marketing companies in Sacramento are appearing more to meet the demand of local business owners needing the Internet marketing services, service pricing could remain moderate to meet with the current economic forecast.

In 2009, there was an average of 32 Billion searches per month.  One statistic any business owner might want to take a look at when they say business is slow is that 82% of people look online for products and services.

Quick Customer Service Tip

Posted on

Be Sociable, Share!

Customer service – how fast do they respond to messages left and are they easily reachable.  I always give my clients my cell phone number and they can reach me anytime, any good service provider should operate this way especially if your paying him/her big bucks.

However, many SEO companies are based overseas and for the most part the representative you may have met with, unless it was a phone consultation which is fine, I give phone consultations all the time as many prospects are out of state. But most companies have reps that sell the product and then are based overseas and customer service and performance suffers because of this.  

With these companies you will get he best bargain basement prices, but not the best results or service.
Usually these companies use automated link building which can actually hurt your site.
