How to promote a product?

How to promote a product? There are things  you need to know  to  get noticed in the public if you're running a business. If you want your business to be successful you have to test the market and done a lot of promotional. In short Marketing strategy is important in every businesses.

I remember when I took my business degree and I have had a business subject that I need to produce one product and market it. It was kinda hard for me, considering my resources is not enough. I need to be successful or else I fail in the subject. Technology is not popular yet.Though we have internet computer but online resources is not that trends to use those old days.

Word of mouth-is the basic and I've done but there is no  enough time to tell the  public what is the product. The target market is too short and sometime it's not accurate.

Imprinted promotional products-For me this one of the most important promotional businesses should done. Once people notice your imprinted products, they will be curious and check your products.

In today's technology there are a lot things to promote your products.

Website-there are a lot of people who always research what is new in the market. If you have a website this will be easy for businesses and the consumer.

Social Media-Whether we like it or not people is registered in any social media, so this would be good if you have to open an account for your business.

5 safe ways carry different currencies overseas

One thing that you must not forget to bring with you when traveling overseas is money. Money is needed for dining, shopping, hotel accommodations and to simply be able to pay for anything that you may want to do while traveling. Most travelers are a bit skeptical about carrying a large amount of their currency with them, as it can lead to risks of getting pick-pocketed. By taking advantage of these safe ways to carry different currencies overseas, you will be able to thoroughly enjoy your holiday without the constant worry of losing your cash.

Credit Cards

Traveling with credit cards is by far one of the best, easiest and safest ways to pay for things while traveling abroad. Credit cards are especially recommended for large purchases such as hotel accommodations, airline tickets and dining out, since you do not want to carry around that kind of money with you. Credit cards can typically be used in any country any will use the interbank exchange rate on your purchases. This means that you do not have to convert your currency yourself and are able to shop without worry.

Debit Cards

Carrying debit cards overseas is another popular option for travelers. Just like credit cards, when you use your debit card at a shop or restaurant, it will use the interbank exchange rate. This exchange rate will also be applied when making withdrawals from ATMs. Simply swipe your card and acquire cash in that country's currency whenever you need it. In the event that a credit card or debit card is lost or stolen, they can easily be reported missing, keeping your money safe and sound. Also consider buying a travel cash passport from retailers such as Travel Money Oz which allows you to store a few different currencies in one card.

Travelers Checks

Taking travelers checks overseas in different currencies is a much safer and secure option than carrying cash with you. These checks can be acquired in advance at most travel agencies by simply providing them with your desired amount of money and receiving the amount of checks that you would like in return. These are great to have as an emergency back-up option in the event that you can find find an ATM to withdraw money. Travelers checks can also be replaced if lost or stolen during your holiday.


Although many tend to steer clear of carrying cash with them in their currency while traveling overseas, it can be helpful to have some money on you. This is highly recommended to have for at least the first day or two of your holiday before you are able to find a currency exchange office or ATM to withdraw cash in that country's currency. Foreign currency can also be obtained at the airport before traveling abroad.

Money Wires

Wiring money overseas is another safe and effective way of acquiring currency while away. In just a few minutes time, money can be wired from nearly anywhere in the world and ready for pick-up at the closest money wiring office to you. Fees do apply when using this method of sending money overseas.

Visiting Madrid, the Modern Capital of Spain

If you are thinking about going to Madrid, then you will be very surprised at how efficient the transport system is. However, if you want to make sure that you fully enjoy the city capitol of Spain, then the best thing to do for you to do would be to rent a car as soon as you get off that plane at Madrid Airport. Renting a car might be cheaper in the long run and of course it provides you with all the freedom you need to go anywhere you want and at the time that fits you best. No more waiting around for trains or buses, just hop in the comfort of your rental car and enjoy the smooth drive around city of Madrid.

Madrid is very famous for its monuments and for being home to one of the most important art museums of the world: the Museo del Prado.

If history and culture is your cup of tea, you have to make sure you pay a visit to the Royal Palace of Madrid and close to it you can also find the famous Plaza de Oriente where you can take a walk and enjoy the landmarks.
However, if you are not into history or arts, Madrid has lots of other attractions that will surely meet your tastes. For example, if you are into nature and want to spend as much time as possible being in the open air enjoy the warm and sunny days of Spain, then you might want to visit the breath-taking scenary of Retiro Park.

Delicious Dishes to Try Whilst in Cyprus

The main reason why people rave about their travels to Cyprus - besides the sun, sea, sand and locals - is the wonderful food. Not only is the island of Cyprus famous for great tasting dishes very similar to what you might find on mainland Greece, but it is also considered one of the healthiest styles of cooking (and preparation) in Europe, and possibly even the world.  

If you are planning a trip to Cyprus, then as a guide we have compiled some of the most memorable and much loved dishes and ingredients that you will undoubtedly come across. Let’s take a look at what you can expect when dining on this stunning Mediterranean island. 

Kick-Start Your Trip With a Cyprus Meze!
A Cypriot Meze is a great way to have a taster of Cyprus cuisine and share it with your friends or family.  A meze can include a staggering 20 to 30 dishes, and is a great introduction to the Cypriot methods of cooking, particularly with regards to food and dining. 

Outside of the Mediterranean, a meze that you would be served in a restaurant or at someone’s dinner party will normally only consist of three dishes. So when you sit down to tuck into a proper Cyprus meze you will be shocked at the vast quantity of food on offer. Don’t worry if you can’t finish it, not many people can!
Mouth-Watering Mousakas 
Probably the dish that is most famous around the world, Mousakas are traditional summertime recipes and have the versatility of being edible both warm and cold. If you’re visiting Cyprus, this dish typically features aubergines, courgettes and/or potatoes, and is covered with a deliciously creamy sauce of minced meat. However, as most eateries throughout Cyprus will have this on their menu, there are likely to be many options without meat, which is great for vegetarian tourists!

 Halloumi Cheese – A Truly Special Delicacy
You may have already tasted, or at least heard of Halloumi Cheese, as it is a very trendy ingredient to use in current day cooking. It is a very traditional cheese made from a combination of both sheep and goat milk, and it also has a white colour as well as layered-textures and salty flavours. 

It is very similar to mozzarella, often oven baked or grilled, and served with salads and crusty bread.  You will often be served Halloumi with mint, and although many claim that this is to add taste, some reckon it has more of an anti-bacterial benefit to help increase the lifespan of the cheese. 

We hope that you have enjoyed our rough guide to some of the most famous and tasty dishes in Cyprus.  Although this is not an extensive list, it certainly covers the basics, and there are many more culinary delights to discover on the island, like pork and lamb, or pasta and olive. You can be sure that a trip to Cyprus will be a sun soaked and mouth-watering experience, that will certainly leave you wanting to visit this amazing island year after year!

How to Pack for Your Kids' Vacation

Taking kids on vacation is both wonderful and exhausting. While it's great to have an excuse to finally hit up some whimsical kid-centered destinations, getting ready for your excursions is downright daunting. With proper planning and some smart tips, rest assured that it is possible to tackle that suitcase with confidence.
Consider Your Agenda

Image via Flickr by sunshinecity

Make a list of your activities for each day of the vacation. Use this as a guide to choosing the most appropriate clothing for each day. If you're spending the day in the car, comfy loose-fitting clothing is usually best. Consider whether you'll need a nice change of clothes for a dinner out, or special clothing for a holiday celebration. Always pack plenty of spares, especially if you have young children who get messy. If you'll have access to a washer and dryer at your destination, you can probably get by with less.
Plan to Mix and Match
Image via Flickr by crimfants
While it's fun to plan cute outfits for each day of the trip, this leaves you with a mismatched mess when something gets ruined. Plan outfits that will mix and match easily so it's never difficult to swap out soiled garments. Taking all white socks makes them easier to match, but skip over whites for other items because this color shows stains.
Pack Toiletries for Both Hygiene and Safety:

It's impossible to predict everything your child might get into, but you can cover the basics. Sunscreen, aloe, bandages, antiseptic, and bug spray will keep you ready in most situations. Toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, and shampoo take care of the basics for bathing. Include assorted medications such as pain relievers, cold medication, allergy medications, and anything else your child uses on a regular or semi-regular basis. These essentials are notoriously overpriced in hotels and touristy gift shops, so try to cover your bases as you pack.
Include Appropriate Entertainment:

Image via Flickr by shorts and longs
If you have a long way to travel, your kids are naturally going to get bored. It's good to keep some special books, coloring books, and music for the car or airplane as a treat. You might need a few books for bedtime reading or toys to entertain small children in the stroller at a museum as well. Avoid over-packing when it comes to entertainment, though. Don't take anything you would be heartbroken to accidentally leave behind, and don't offer so many distractions that your kids forget to enjoy the destination when they're there.
Keep Essentials Accessible:

Image via Flickr by bargainbri
Keep at least one bag on hand with essential items like diapers, a change of clothing, travel documents, snacks, and first aid supplies. If you're packing a car, keep the things you'll need first on top. If you think your old vehicle can't possibly make the trip, maybe it's time to upgrade to a better car from Williamson Buick GMC. Your vacation is a great opportunity to break it in thoroughly.

Planning ahead with your packing will keep you covered in almost every contingency. While your kids are sure to give you some unexpected surprises, with the right supplies you'll always be ready to field them.

5 Things to Do in Arizona This Spring

Are you tired of the tourist traps? When you're traveling in Arizona this spring, try something new and different. Arizona has a rich history, and the unusual attractions to prove it. Here are five things you may never have considered doing in Arizona during the springtime.

1. Step Back in Time on Arizona's Tribal Lands
Image via Flickr by SowersPics

Over 12,000 years of history await you on the tribal lands of Arizona. Home to a variety of Indian cultures, including the Ancestral Puebloans, Salado, Hohokam, and Mongollon tribes, you can see many of the structures and artifacts built by these people so many centuries ago. There are a number of museums honoring and preserving the culture and history of these indigenous people, including ruins where you can see how life used to be for them.

Some tribes limit tourism in an effort to preserve their culture, religion and independence. Others, however, such as the Navajo Nation and White Mountain Apache Tribe, welcome tourists with open arms. Tribal laws govern these areas, so it's like stepping out of the country without leaving at all.

2. See the Countryside as Never Before on the Arizona Trail

If you'd like a unique experience, consider hiking, horseback riding, mule packing or llama packing across part of the Arizona Trail. This trail actually extends from Mexico all the way to Utah, and covers over 800 miles of territory. But it's also to take a weekend or weeklong trip through parts of Arizona.

The trail treks over mountain ranges, through canyons, across deserts, among forest land and amidst wilderness areas. There are a number of historical sites, communities and other points of interest along the trail. You'll see geographical wonders and historical sites, such as General Springs Cabin where you can learn about the history of the U.S. Forest Service and the Kentucky Camp, an old mining camp. Roosevelt Dam and part of the trails of the Grand Canyon National Park also lie on the trail system.

3. Discover the Wonders of the Desert at the Desert Botanical Garden

See one of only 44 gardens that hold accreditation from the American Association of Museums at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. The Garden is home to 139 species of desert plants which are endangered around the world. This 50 acre park is one of the most spectacular collections of desert plant species in the entire world.

4. See Some Sort-of-Local Heroes at Scottsdale Stadium

For a few months each year, the San Francisco Giants call Arizona home. At the Scottsdale Stadium, they entertain fans, which are an affordable way to enjoy Major League Baseball during the off season. Aside from seeing the team in action, you can walk the concourse, tour the practice facilities and shop at the Giants’ Dugout Store. There are a variety of concession stands for a snack or meal. This is a great opportunity to see the reigning World Series Champs in action.

5. Immerse Yourself in the World of Art at Heard Museum

Heard Museum is home to such world-famous displays as the Barry Goldwater Collection and the Kachina Dolls. Here, you can see 32,000 pieces of art, including fine art collections and cultural art displays. What makes Heard Museum unique isn't just their native and travelling displays, it's the eye appealing way they construct and present their displays.

These five things to do in Arizona aren't just different and interesting, they're also quite affordable.

Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas,CocoCay,Bahamas Day 2

Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas,CocoCay,Bahamas Day 2. Actually this is really a first day of sail away. CocoCay,Bahamas is a private island of Royal Caribbean International. We docked around 8 a.m and the ship began letting the people off  and departing 4:30 p.m..
Christened-May 12,2006 with the capacity passengers of 3,634 and crew of 1,360

We got up on time as we docked at CocoCay Island and enjoy our breakfast at deck 11 with my parents-in-law. After our breakfast we kinda confuse considering we're on the middle of the ocean and we did not see the pier. So we ask how to go in the island and they told us by ferry every 15 minutes.

Long Lines:
After we got our towel on deck 11 we decided to go in the island  and  sad to tell the line was backed up and annoying to my father-in-law where he can't stand longer because of his leg and he decided to stay in the ship and enjoy the pool and hot tub on deck 11. But we're kinda sad he did not make it and it was hard for him to wait. So leave early or  late  if you  don't want to wait in a long lines.

CocoCay Island:
The island was beautiful with lot of things to do for family.We decided to enjoy the water  while hubby and I went hiking to see what's around the island. "Little Travelentz" was happy to play in the sand with  grandme that I brought some toys for her. Of course everything you want to do like sliding, snorkel, jets ski and etc. has a cost. The only free things that served was lunch.

Straw Market:
They set up a little shopping market and it was good enough to cater for everyone needs like souvenir, and things you want to buy for yourself. I like the people  they would not harass you and  weren't pushy.

Back to the ship:
After our lunch we decided to headed back to the ship. Oh! geez, it's a long line for security purposes and it was hot while we're in queue.We're glad father-in-law was not with us.


We watched some of the show on second day but we had no chance to finished the show because "Little Travelentz" get antsy.

We had to dressed up and it's a formal night. We dine-in in the main dining at the same table. The food was pretty good. 
It was bloody good though. We all had fun except my father in-law had no chance to see the island.After the dinner we go for a good night sleep and this pretty one makes us smile.
Thankful to our hostess.
Note: If you want to know more about our onboard experience at Royal Caribbean  Freedom of the Seas you can start on Freedom of the Seas Itinerary or Day 1.

See you on my next post: We're hubby was quarantine for 24 hours-it sucks  :(
