This is a Guest Post by Anand Rajendran

In the present world, mobile apps are widely preferred by several entrepreneurs and they follow a particular mobile trend. An effective mobile app has more value than that of the mobile website. There are numerous apps in the App store and it is considered as the new way of building organizations and also to promote technological growth.

Launch an App

The main aim of a business owner behind having an app is to satisfy the audience’s expectations with great ideas for promoting the growth of business. With it, they can use the benefits of news feeds, user accounts, messengers, news feeds etc. On the other side of the coin, a mobile app for a business can greatly contribute to an individual’s brand awareness.

Today’s entrepreneurs are working day and night to develop apps and mobile-friendly versions of their websites for a better growth of their business. Mobile apps have earned a good credit in the world of digital technology. They also provide the business folks a much-needed avenue to promote their services and products to the target audience, at the right time. They make consumers make more informed and services more efficient one. The other gaming and entertainment apps add more fun to the Smartphone user experience.

Market research is the most important aspect to consider before developing any app. In the Google play store, Apple app store and Windows app store the top paid and top free apps are available. The mobile apps are priced cheaper than computer apps. Building a mobile app startup is more about solving problems than following the ideas. It is necessary to carry out proper market research on the category of mobile app startup business one wants to start.

Developing a Mobile App:

Mobile app development is at the peak level; hence a large number of companies are coming up with the qualitative mobile app development service. Many organizations are engaged in providing effective solutions, in order to make the sales and increase the business growth.

The developing methodologies help the folks to turn sporadic-ideas into streaming revenue. Some companies have a team of creative and artistic minds in their development team to enhance the growth of mobile application. When the coding is done, testing is finished and when the app is ready to be launched, it is very important to check some strategic procedures.

Determine the Marketing Plan:

One can just launch an app in the store. There is a certain set of protocols for proper app marketing and a website is also essential for an app. This website should provide proper details about the app and also should give notifications regarding any changes, updates, allowing the consumers to stay informed. It is important to collect the email addresses in case of any emergency in the future. In the research process, the key players in the category of an app operate in such a way that it gives complete information about the apps including the unique name.

A Proper Review:

When the date is decided in advance, one should keep the track of announcements in the tech world. The Press coverage is the most essential so the public comes to know about the launch of the new app.

Examine the Decision Makers:

A decision maker is defined as a person who helps in distributing about the app in not only the organization but also among the like-thinkers. On the other side of the flip, power users are known as the decision makers. They will provide sufficient feedback on several aspects of an app such as UX, UI, and workflow. With the help of the reviews, one will get to know the areas where the improvement is required.

Before Launch:

Choose a Platform:

There are many resources available in this vast world. Both Android and iOS are available at the same time with a fully featured native app. In reality, one has to consider which platform to launch on first, and each one has their own set of advantages and disadvantages. Android is currently the head in terms of adoption and retention, but iOS apps are more profitable one. There are a number of development considerations to take into account before choosing a platform.

One can always choose to develop on more than one platform to eradicate a lot of issues. This will extend the development time, increase costs, and delay entry to the App Store, so it is important to think about the timeline and priorities before choosing a platform.

Reasons to choose iOS:

iOS is a superior development tool, potentially wealthier one and the security is guaranteed one. On the other side of the flip, the approval process can take longer than two weeks. It is more restrictive on data sharing, advertising, and interaction methods.

Reasons to choose Android:

Android is an open platform, where approval process is not necessary. In terms of devices, the reach is border one. On the other side of the coin, it is hard to maintain a consistent experience due to the wider variety of OS versions. There is a higher chance of errors and piracy.

Analyze beta users and test:

The initial step is to find a right group which is very important before launching an app. Beta users serve as the ultimate test group and they are the accurate critics of a new app. One can choose to do a public beta launch, which is open to the public to gain more impressions or do a private launch by invite-only. For more targeted beta insights, find the closest possible version of ideal user and invite them. Reaching the beta users is always critical.

Tools like TestFlight can be used to help streamline that process. It is necessary to bring some load, scale, and network testing to bear on one’s app. This work also can be done manually, and initially, that might work, but using a tool like AppPurify can reduce the amount of time spent on this phase of the project.

Be ready with the acquisition campaigns:

Each and every app is going to have organic acquisition, but only some are going to have paid acquisition. Facebook’s platform is the most-used one, but other search engines like Google Engine and other mobile ad platforms should be considered in the planning phase. In preparing for the organic acquisition, one has to make sure that they have optimized the App Store listing.

Search Engine optimization App Store Optimization (ASO) involves in the process of incorporating the right keywords into the store listing so that it ranks higher in search results and it is easily discovered. A recent survey says that about sixty-three percent of downloads come from general browsing in the App Store.

During Launch

Identify the working features and non working features:

The main goal is to know exactly how the consumers are interacting with the app and to satisfy the consumer’s expectations. It helps the folks to in moving forward with the strategy, and evolve the app in a well-organized manner in future. Monitoring the app performance closely during the first impression time period will allow us to immediately address, prioritize app issues etc.

Look at the beginning stage of App Store success:

Downloads are not the most important metric to measure an app’s long-term success, but during the launch, it takes the center stage. App Annie is a great source for market research, and their analytics platform can measure downloads.

After launch:

Plan an idea for the engaging users:

Promoting the app to garner downloads is an essential thing for the marketing plan. The engaged users are more likely to convert, make in-app purchases and give us reviews. The users come to know about the feedback through email, push and in-app messages, and SMS. These things promote engagement with special offers, discounts, customized content, reminders and other valuable information.

Enhance the app to provide more value:

After the launch, one can gain better experience, in other words, we can say that how users are interacting with the app features. The main goal of a developer will be to optimize higher customer lifetime value. Even though every app is the different one the main target should be to provide the highest value possible.

Today’s world is so oriented towards technology that authors all need to build an online platform in order to increase the readability of their content. Considering that there are many platforms where you can create and manage your website or blog, it is quite expected that there are some better than others. At this point, WordPress is one of the preferred platforms to be found online, with 22 out of every 100 new domains registered on it.

Yet another plus of using WordPress as your platform are the numerous plugins. If you are ready to start a blog or a website, you cannot just set it up and start posting. You want your site to be of highest functionality and to look good, all with the aim of attracting more visitors. This is the biggest reason why you should learn what the essential wordpress plugins for authors are

Here is the list of 10 Essential WordPress Plugins for Authors:

1) MyBookTable

A writer’s blog is rarely profitable without this plugin. At this moment, the MyBookTable is the best solution for writers who want to use their website to sell their books. Of course, you can post the book on outlets such as Amazon and sell them in the bookstores, but if you want to sell them through your website, you will need this plugin.

MyBookTable is used to incorporate reviews, images, descriptions and links for purchase of the books. Additionally, it has the advantage of including an eJunkie or PayPal button, which visitors can use to purchase your book directly from you.

2) Broken Link Checker

As a writer, you may not have the knowledge or experience to handle broken links. However, some links on your blog will break eventually anyways. When websites change addresses or go down, this is what happens.

Broken links are bad for your SEO. If you want to stay high on the search engine results, you need this plugin to clean up your site.

3) WP Inject

What you may not know when you decide to start your blog is that free photos are not very easy to find. The majority of good photos on the Web are the property of someone and you have to pay to use them. Sure, you can use pages like the Creative Commons on Flickr, but this plugin will help you do that without the hassle of having to find all the right links and downloads.

4) Editorial Calendar

Inspiration comes and goes and it so often happens that authors are once in their best time and sometimes in their worst. Therefore, you need to schedule your post ideas carefully, making sure that your blog is always active.

The Editorial calendar will allow you to schedule your posts and manage writers, if this is what your website’s goal is about.

5) Revive Old Post

People love Twitter and so must you! In order to save up the time of having to look for posts or chatting with people on this social media, you can download this plugin and let it be active instead of you. The plugin will keep the posts relevant, pump out content on your Twitter page and keep you active at all times.

6) Contact Form 7

Download this plugin to allow visitors to contact you if they have questions about your writing. This is also a great way to communicate with potential clients that require your services.

In order to make your blog profitable and more user-friendly, you will need a contact form.

7) Portfolio Gallery

The main goal of a writer’s blog is to showcase the writings. If this is your goal, you will need a great plan on how you will do this in a way that it will invite and entice people to visit the blog. Use Portfolio Gallery to punch in your work.

8) Related Posts by Zemanta

Have you noticed how on many websites a pop up related product appears while you are looking into something? This is something you can do on your website, too.

This plugin can help you showcase related blog posts under every post you have published. It will make the navigation process much easier and increase the chances of people staying on your website longer.

9) WordPress SEO by Yoast

The WordPress SEO plugin is important for anyone who owns a website. This is the most popular plugin to be found since it optimizes the entire website so that it appears higher in the search engines.

The WordPress SEO will help you understand how to improve your title, URL, content and meta description with the aim of attracting more visitors.

10) Akismet

Blogs need constant spam moderating since this can clutter and slow down the website. Using the Akismet tool will allow you to easily check the content and see if it is spam and needs to be removed. Otherwise, you will spend hours trying to find the source for your website’s decreased functionality.

Self-hosting is now much easier because of the plugins. Instead of having to learn everything in the world of informatics, people can now easily create and maintain their websites as long as they have the most effective plugins. As a writer, you need to know how to set up your blog and what the necessary plugins for the proper functioning of your website are. If you manage to do this, you can optimize your website and with it, increase readability of your writings and sales of your books.

50% of online searches take place on a mobile device. Search engines favor responsive websites over non-responsive websites. 83% of the top most search result is mobile friendly. Responsive web designs provide a richer user experience in comparison to non-responsive websites.

WordPress Theme

Why are we telling you these facts? With the world moving to the mobile platform, it has become the need of the hour to make websites responsive not only to rank better in mobile search results, but also to offer a better user experience irrespective of the device on which the website is viewed.

What is Bootstrap?

Bootstrap is one of the most popular HTML, CSS, and JS framework for developing responsive websites. It makes front-end web development simple, faster and really effective. You don’t need a lot of technical expertise or advanced skills to work with Bootstrap. The best thing about Bootstrap is that it scales websites and apps to different devices with a single code base. Millions of websites have been made responsive and compatible with different devices by using the unmatched potential of Bootstrap.

How to Build a WordPress Responsive Theme Using Bootstrap

Using bootstrap with WordPress doesn’t require a lot of skills. You need to have an understanding of WordPress with basic coding skills to develop a responsive theme. The following steps are required to build a responsive WordPress theme using Bootstrap.

Pre-Requisites:

Before you can begin building a responsive WordPress theme with bootstrap, you need to ensure that the following pre-requisites are in place.

  • Install WordPress
  • Download and unzip bootstrap files
  • Install Theme Test Drive Plugin (this plugin displays a “coming soon” or “website under construction” page until the website is made live. You should consider using this plugin only if you do not wish the users to see the website during its development phase.)

Step 1: Access the Bootstrap Folder

You need to access the folder containing bootstrap. Ideally, you should have downloaded and unzipped the files and placed them in a folder. If this is not done, then please do this before proceeding.

You need to access the directory containing the WordPress files. For this you need to:

  • Go to wp-content
  • Create a new folder and rename it as “wpbootstrap”. You can give it any name you want but for the purpose of explaining the steps, we will use the name “wpbootstrap”
  • Copy and paste the contents of the bootstrap folder into the folder you have just created
  • Inside the recently created wpbootstrap folder, create a file called index.php

Step 2: Create a Static Page (HTML)

The HTML static page can be created by copying the source code from the website that you have selected. Now paste the copied files to the index.php file located in the wpbootstrap folder.

Step 3: Create The Primary CSS Page

Access the index.php file and create a new file with the name “style.css”. The file should be maintained at the same level as the index.php file. Please do not rename the file anything other than “style.css” because WordPress needs this file to build the theme and will not work with any other file name.

With that taken care of, add the following comments to the top section of the style.css file to allow WordPress to access the theme’s meta information.

/*

Theme Name: WP Bootstrap

Theme URI: http://teamtreehouse.com/wordpress-bootstrap-theme-tutorial

Description: A demo theme built to accompany the Treehouse blog post <a href="http://teamtreehouse.com/wordpress-bootstrap-theme-tutorial">How to Build a WordPress Theme with Bootstrap</a>.

Author: Zac Gordon

Author URI: http://teamtreehouse.com/

Version: 1.0

Tags: responsive, white, bootstrap

License: Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported (CC BY-SA 3.0)

License URI: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

This simple theme was built using the example Bootstrap theme "Basic marketing site" found on the Bootstrap website

http://twitter.github.com/bootstrap/examples/hero.html

*/

Step 4: Upload An Image for the WordPress Admin Section

You need to upload an image for the WordPress admin section. The image should be exactly 300 x 225 px. Rename the image to “screenshot.png”. Please do not rename the file anything other than “screenshot.png” because this is a mandatory requirement of WordPress.

The file structure should be like this

WordPress Admin Section

Step 5: WordPress Theme Activation

The theme has to be activated or initialized before further changes can be made. This can be done by using the following steps.

  • Access the Admin section of the WordPress dashboard
  • Access the “theme” option under “Appearance” tab.
  • If you have configured the access correctly, you should be able to see a new theme called wpbootstrap.
  • Select this theme and activate it.

Check the screenshot below for a better understanding

WordPress Theme

As soon as the theme is activated, your WordPress website should look similar to the following

WordPress Website

Step 6: Static File to Functional WordPress Theme Conversion

For this step, you need to create three files – header.php, sidebar.php and footer.php. Now copy all the HTML codes present at the top section of the pages into the header.php file that you have created.

The structure should look like this

<!DOCTYPE html>

                <li class="nav-header">Nav header</li>

                <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>

                <li><a href="#">One more separated link</a></li>

              </ul>

            </li>

          </ul>

          <form class="navbar-form pull-right">

            <input class="span2" type="text" placeholder="Email">

            <input class="span2" type="password" placeholder="Password">

            <button type="submit" class="btn">Sign in</button>

          </form>

        </div><!--/.nav-collapse -->

      </div>

    </div>

  </div> 

  <div class="container">

Now copy all the HTML codes from the bottom section of the pages into the footer.php file. It should look like this.

<hr>

    <footer>

      <p>&copy; Company 2012</p>

    </footer>

  </div> <!-- /container -->

  <!-- Le javascript ================================================== -->

  <!-- Placed at the end of the document so the pages load faster -->

  <script src="../assets/js/jquery.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-transition.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-alert.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-modal.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-dropdown.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-scrollspy.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-tab.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-tooltip.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-popover.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-button.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-collapse.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-carousel.js"></script>

  <script src="../assets/js/bootstrap-typeahead.js"></script>

</body>

</html>

Step 7: Add Header and Footer Files to Index.php File

For adding the header and footer files to the index.php file, you need to use the get_header() and get_footer() tags. Do not modify these tags because they are default in-built functions of WordPress. The tags are useful in locating the header and footer files respectively and adding them to the page.

This is great for saving time because the header and footer can be added to all new pages by simply providing the tags. Similarly, if any change has to be made in the header or footer, then the changes have to be made in the primary header and footer file and the same will be reflected across all pages where they have been added.

Step 8: Fix All Broken Links to the JavaScript and CSS Files

To begin fixing broken links to the JavaScript and CSS files, you need to make changes to the header code first. It should be like the code below.

<!-- Le styles -->

<link href="../assets/css/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet">

<style type="text/css">

body {

    padding-top: 60px;

    padding-bottom: 40px;

}

</style>

<link href="../assets/css/bootstrap-responsive.css" rel="stylesheet">

Now that this is done, you need to add elements to the style.css file as required. In the code, we have used the bloginfo() function that links to the theme’s bootstrap CSS files. We have also made use of the @import tag which helps in linking to the css files of bootstrap to the primary css file (style.css).

If you have followed the steps correctly, your site should appear like this

Fix the link to CSS and JS

Step 9: Adding CSS / JavaScript to the Website

You can add CSS or JavaScript to the website by using the Wp_head() function. The addition of this function ensures that all plugins that we install in the website work perfectly.

The header template needs to look like this.

<head>

  <meta charset="utf-8">

  <title>Bootstrap, from Twitter</title>

  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> 

  <!-- Le styles -->

  <link href="<?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url');?>" rel="stylesheet"> 

  <!-- Le HTML5 shim, for IE6-8 support of HTML5 elements -->

  <!--[if lt IE 9]>

  <script src="http://html5shim.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>

  <![endif]--> 

  <?php wp_enqueue_script("jquery"); ?>

  <?php wp_head(); ?>

</head>

<body> 

  <div class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top">

    <div class="navbar-inner">

      <div class="container">

        <a class="btn btn-navbar" data-toggle="collapse" data-target=".nav-collapse">

          <span class="icon-bar"></span>

          <span class="icon-bar"></span>

          <span class="icon-bar"></span>

        </a>

        <a class="brand" href="<?php echo site_url(); ?>"><?php bloginfo('name'); ?></a>

        <div class="nav-collapse collapse">

          <ul class="nav"> 

            <?php wp_list_pages(array('title_li' => '', 'exclude' => 4)); ?> 

          </ul>

        </div><!--/.nav-collapse -->

      </div>

    </div>

  </div>

  <div class="container">

Step 10: Fix Footer Issues

You might have links to JavaScript files that might not be of any use on the website. You need to remove those links. After removal, the footer.php file should have the following code.

  <hr>

    <footer>

      <p>0 Company 2012</p>

    </footer>

  </div> <!-- /container --> 

  <!-- Le javascript============================== -->

  <script src."../assets/js/jquery.js"></script>

  <script src."../assets/js/bootstrap.js"></script>

</body>

</html>

Step 11: Adding the Footer Tag

You have to add the Wp_footer() tag just before the closing body tag. If implemented correctly, it should look like this. 

 <hr>

    <footer>

      <p>© Company 2012</p>

   </footer>

  </div> <!-- /container -->

  <?php wp_footer(); ?>

</body>

</html>

Step 12: Load the JavaScript File

Use the wp_enqueue_script() function to load the jQuery near the wp_head() function.

Now add the following code to the header.php file

<?php wp_enqueue_script('query"); ?>

<?php wp_head(); ?>

After that, create a file called functions.php

If implemented correctly, the drop down menu should look like this

Load the file

Step 13: Create a Homepage on WordPress

In order to create a homepage on WordPress, you need to perform the following steps.

  • Access the admin section on your WordPress dashboard
  • Click on “Pages” in the side menu bar and select “add new”
  • The page should have the title “Home”
  • Click on the HTML Tag (this should be placed above the content editor)
  • Copy and remove the remaining markup code from index.php
  • Paste the markup code in the home page
  • Publish the page so that the changes are updated on the site.

If all the steps have been performed correctly, the homepage editor view should look like this

Create a Homepage

Now the only things remaining in the index.php file should be the header and footer codes.

Step 14: Adding the Loop Function

Now that the base structure is ready, you have to add the content in the admin section in the template. The reason for adding a loop function here is that it allows looping through posts or pages and extract information like title, publishing date, comments and author. The loop function is also useful in extracting content from the post or page.

The following code provides the loop function on WordPress.

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

<?php endwhile; else: ?>

<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>

<?php endif; ?>

Once the loop function has been integrated correctly, the code should look like the structure below.

<?php get_header(); ?>

<?php if ( have_posts() ) : while ( have_posts() ) : the_post(); ?>

<?php endwhile; else: ?>

<p><?php _e('Sorry, no posts matched your criteria.'); ?></p>

<?php endif; ?>

<?php get_footer(); ?>

At this stage, you need to add the_title() and the_content() functions to the code in order to extract the page title and content.

In order to display a static page on the homepage instead of blog posts, you need to perform the following steps.

  • Go to the Settings option in the admin section of the WordPress dashboard and access “reading”.
  • Under ‘front page displays’ select ‘static page’ instead of ‘blog posts’.
  • Select ‘home’ option from the homepage.

This will ensure that the static page is displayed on the homepage and all blog posts can be placed appropriately on a different page.

Step 15: Add Content and Setup Navigation

Now that the base of the website is set up, you can add more content and pages. Simply access the admin section on the dashboard and create more pages such as About Us, Contact Us, etc. Adding content is really easy in WordPress and you can manage it without any problems.

For setting up proper navigation, find the unordered list with the class ‘nav’ and delete all the items mentioned in the list. Now add the static navigation menu containing the pages that you have created. This needs to be updated every time you add or remove a page.

Step 16: Adding Widgets

Widgets are placed on the sidebar which makes using them really convenient.

In order to add widgets, add the following code in the function.php file.

<?php

function wpbootstrap_scripts_with_jquery()

{

  // Register the script like this for a theme:

  wp_register_script( 'custom-script', get_template_directory_uri() . '/bootstrap/js/bootstrap.js', array( 'jquery' ) );

  // For either a plugin or a theme, you can then enqueue the script:

  wp_enqueue_script( 'custom-script' );

}

add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'wpbootstrap_scripts_with_jquery' ); 

if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') )

  register_sidebar(array(

    'before_widget' => '',

    'after_widget' => '',

    'before_title' => '<h3>',

    'after_title' => '</h3>',

  ));

?>

Your Responsive WordPress Theme With Bootstrap is Ready

If you have followed all steps correctly, your WordPress theme development with bootstrap should be complete. As you must have experienced, using bootstrap with WordPress is easy and doesn’t require a lot of technical skills. You can test your website on different devices to check if the theme is fully responsive and meets your expectations. You can continue adding more pages and enhancing the website as required.

That’s it! You have successfully created a Responsive WordPress Theme with a Bootstrap

No matter what time of the year it is, people love to take a short vacation, escape for a couple of days and clear their mind. According to a recent TripBarometer survey, more than 33% of travelers are planning to spend more money on travel than they did the previous year. And not just because of rising costs – people simply want to enjoy themselves, unwind and spend a few days with their loved ones.

Naturally, traveling over the holidays can be expensive, busy and in some cases extremely stressful, however, the news isn’t all bad. Whether you escaping the city to relaxing, remote getaway, or heading home for the holidays to spend a few days with your family, there certain things you can do to ease some of the travel headaches and get some peace of mind during the trip.

Survival Tips

1 Do the Research

This is especially important if you’re driving to your holiday spot, because if the traffic makes your journey overwhelming, you need to have an alternative route. Also, if you’re traveling with your kids, make sure to break up your drive by finding a few stops where your children will be entertained.

2 Download a Few Apps

A few days before your trip, you should definitely download a couple of good travel apps that will make your journey more comfortable. GateGuru, for example, shows the approximate time you’ll spend in security and Flight Status shows updates on baggage numbers and flight delays in real-time.

3 Avoid Public Wi-Fi

You have to be aware that not all free Internet is good Internet. When you’re out at the airport, you’ll surely find a lot of free, ad-hoc hotspot that hackers create to steal your personal data. That’s why you should always use a Virtual Private Network like NordVPN to encrypt and protect your information.

4 Buy Some Earplugs

Every airport is load. And airplane is even louder. So, how can you escape your surroundings, without doing yoga in public? You only need to turn the volume down, and the best way to do that is to buy a pair of earplugs and carry them with you on the airplane.

5 Get Snacks and Drinks

When you get too hungry, you cannot even think straight right? You don’t want to get distracted and get in the wrong line or take a wrong turn in the airport. Therefore, you should always pack a couple of snack and a few bottles, just in case. That way you will not have to rely on the over-priced airplane food.

6 Select Off-Peak Days to Travel

Off Peak Days

Whatever you do, you should try to avoid traveling on Wednesday before Thanksgiving, seeing how that’s the biggest (and worst) traveling day of the year in the United States. In this case, it would be wiser to leave early on Thanksgiving and try to avoid try to avoid the traffic. Speaking of early morning…

7 Travel Early

If you look at any flight statistics, you’ll clearly see that planes that take off earlier in the day (especially early in the morning) arrive on time more often. In addition, if an early flight gets canceled, you still have the option of booking a flight later that day.

8 Don’t Over-Pack

If you don’t want to spend an hour waiting for your bags on the conveyor belt, or you don’t want worry about your medication, you should try to pack as much as you can in a small handbag. As a matter of fact, try checking your luggage altogether if you can, but if you pack a lot of things, maybe try to…

9 Ship Your Bag

When it comes to luggage there are a couple of things you need consider such as, high checking fees, poor care and even theft. That is why you’re probably better off shipping your bags to your destination in advance. While this is not a most inexpensive option, it can save you a lot of time on your travel day.

10 Expect the Unexpected

Finally, the best advice we have for you is to expect everything. And this means that you should leave additional time before any flight, to deal with things like security and extra time between connections. If you’re traveling by car, make sure to bring chains for snowy conditions and a first-aid kit.

Final Thoughts

All in all, no matter how much stress you might experience during your trip, you have to keep in mind that you are there to disconnect from the ever-resent pressures of your everyday life. And that is why need to arrange a couple of things ahead – only by devising a strict travel and sticking to it till the end, you’ll be able to loosen up.

A vacation is probably just what you need to renew yourself, as a matter of fact, according to the latest version of the Virtuoso Luxe Report, 44% of people name this as the number one reason they love to travel. So just relax, and try to be present in the moment and live day by day. So instead of all of these small problems, concentrate where you want to go sightseeing, what you want to buy and where you are going to eat

Having a goal in mind will help you work towards choosing the best SEO firm for your project. When you find a good SEO agency, your call should be the center of your communication.

Listen to the stories

Good Listener

A good SEO firm executes tactically. A great SEO firm does that too but they are highly creative as well, and creative people tell good stories. Stories also allow you to get a true vision of what the SEO firm is all about. Ask the SEO agency or company how satisfied and contented their clients are, their successful SEO projects and strategies they used in executing them. Even if you have made up your mind after following these tips, as you listen to stories you may completely change your mind.

Experience

It’s quite important for business owners to closely look into the history of SEO firms and get essential information on how long a firm has been in existence. The older a firm, the higher its productivity and assurance to getting satisfactory service.

Market Presence

With experience, comes recognition and market presence. In business, there is always “talk” about every firm. Ensure to make accurate inquiries of SEO firms and their presence on the online market. It doesn’t hurt to check out the internet for information about the firm. You can check their company website and blog for such information, read customers’ reviews and testimonials too. 

Cost
