on February 9, 2018

What’s a Good Business to Start in Minnesota?

If you’re like me, and you probably are: Human, live in North America, are on the internet -> Then you’ve probably at one point or another considered starting your own business in Minnesota.

You may have different reasons for wanting to start your own business, for me it was just about the freedom to actually do what you love (whether in Minnesota, or Ontario!), and be the one who sets the pace, and sets priorities.

Kitchen Renovations in Norfolk County

Kitchen Renovations in Norfolk County

Why Should I renovate my Kitchen?

You should renovate your kitchen in Simcoe or Norfolk County if you are at your wit’s end putting up with out of date flooring, cabinets, counter tops, or lighting (among other things).

We all experience this feeling. Especially when we are so often bombarded with pictures or videos of brand new kitchens, or fresh renovations on other people’s posts or on TV (if you still haven’t cut the cord!). It’s hard NOT to be jealous of an updated kitchen with all the bells and whistles one would expect from a modern kitchen reno in Simcoe.

Wedding Rings and Custom Jewellery

on March 19, 2017

1 – The Plan

The plan is to propose to my girlfriend. We’ve been together for a few years, and she deserves the finest in custom jewellery. More specifically a custom engagement ring, made exclusively for her. If there’s one thing I know, it’s that the proposal, and the ring, need to be just as unique as she is.

I’ve been browsing for a place to easily create a custom engagement ring, and have stumbled across a number of sites to help. What I’m looking for is a) easy to use b) options galore c) trust in the maker. Many of the custom jewellery designers out there are able to fulfill one or two of these prerequisites, but only one was able to satisfy all three, plus remind me of a fourth: Experience.

Why does experience matter? Easy, read on:

Branching to Simcoe Services

on September 18, 2016

Simcoe Services

Taking advantage of the new TDL (top level domain) – .Services – The Simcoe Services department has been approved to deploy sub sites for all interested parties. This subset of websites will allow Simcoe.Services to enhance the distribution of smaller businesses on the internet for the local area of Simcoe, and Norfolk County.

What remains to be seen is if this implementation will actually be effective. After reading many articles on the process, and understanding that certain aspects of this strategy are indeed sound, the application and execution will need to be monitored for results. Hopefully we see a tremendous ability to capture the area audience, which will lead to continued prosperity, and ease of use for each successive release.

Studying the Competition

It’s a strange balance to take into account. In Simcoe, you’ll find some businesses are over saturated with competition, whereas others you can see a clear gap in the marketplace. The obvious contenders are always overloaded, such as photographers, and real estate agents. Yet we see surprisingly little amounts of computer repair technicians or tow truck drivers. Ultimately every area, Norfolk County included, will find it’s groove, and this means that you’ll really eventually reach equilibrium of service offerings. It must be true, as I only see a half a dozen local web designers, and my result tends to be top two, and I NEVER get calls from the website. It really makes you wonder.

Is the VALUE the Results? or the PERCEPTION of Results?
