You want the truth?! You can't handle the truth!!!

Apologies to that great movie A Few Good Men but while all online marketers talk about generating good solid content in support of their organic search optimization efforts it's easier said than done. Some subjects - discussed in detail - would put the audience (and the writer?) right to sleep! BUT: there are great online marketing teams like the folks at +Traffic Safety Store who are putting a premium on creativity and telling an important story about subject matter you might not give a second glance to by way of really fascinating infographics initiatives like the one here that gives the history of  the traffic cone.
Yeah I know what you're saying: Riveting stuff...zzzzzzzzzzz but you know what? The way the team at +Traffic Safety Store conveys this information it makes the subject matter compelling and entertaining and makes you remember these folks when the need for traffic safety products arises: that's a win-win for consumer and marketer alike! I never thought I'd say this but you know what? I'm looking forward to my next Traffic Safety Store 'history of' infographic installment!

First time clients of Kim's and it was a fantastic experience! Kim showed up on time within the appointment arrival window, and about an hour later there was a knock on the door and our Wiley was there with Kim all freshly bathed and groomed. It was an awesome experience for Wiley - he got to stay home and have the groomer come to him - really lessened his stress level and he looked awesome! Best haircut ever for him! Kim was extremely nice - very kind and gentle with Wiley - and the cost was great - less than we had paid when we had to transport him to other groomers. An all-around awesome experience we're looking forward to repeating in the future with Sit Stay Style Mobile Pet Grooming! Thanks Kim!!!
