Some valuable strategies to consider!

#lt
The secret to successful digital marketing in 2015 is pretty simple. You’ve got to know your customer. The end of an old year and the beginning of a new one is the perfect time to sit down and analyze the characteristics of qualities of your customer. Every niche differs, but these [...]

The ad must've been really crazy to shoot #bmw #flashmob

BMW had a handle on traditional social media marketing, but it took a risk on a "drift mob" to reach new audiences. Here's how it paid off.

I wonder how internet trolls will respond to being "corrected" haha

Fed up with futile internet arguments, a bunch of psychologists investigated how best to correct false ideas. Tom Stafford discovers how to debunk properly.

Preparing for Black Friday... Hmm worth it?

As post-recession shoppers get savvy, retailers shake up their own strategies.

Happy Tuesday. Some zen thoughts to start the day

#zen

#ft
Zen has a rich tradition of storytelling. Actually, just about the entire human race has a rich history of storytelling. Why do we like stories so much? Because we can identify with them. Stories, whether real or not, pull and tug at our emotions. We connect personally with stories. Whereas someone can tell us that... [Click to continue]

Welcome to the Mirai

Can hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles go mainstream? Toyota thinks so. Its FCV, called the Mirai, goes on sale in the U.S. next year, in an early-mover bid reminiscent of the Prius.

Isn't it interesting? Corporate businesses aren't afraid to experiment and change, as long as profit is increased in the end, while other sectors fear change because the whole infrastructure might collapse.

Mind control coming soon to a store near you

It might sound like the stuff that science fiction narratives are made of, however, researchers have found a way to let humans switch the genes of mice on and off with the power of their brainwaves

I'm glad to see Google putting more focus on the success of small local businesses!
Global SEO updates like Panda and Penguin changed fundamental ranking processes across the board, but one of Google’s latest changes, deemed the “Pigeon” update, has made an impact on a much more local level. The Pigeon update, designed to give users a better search experience when looking for local businesses, [...]

Very accommodating staff. I had a great experience there while I was attending EDC!

Great selection of meats and local foods. Definitely on the more expensive side, but the quality of produce is awesome!

The overall experience was mediocre. The waiter seemed very apathetic and was almost rude. He interrupted my girlfriend in the middle of her order and tried to push me to order salad. We didn't order drinks and in response he said nothing and walked away. The bread came with olive oil, and was pretty normal. But ten minutes later some other waitress appears with butter when we're on our last piece of bread and sets it down without saying a word. Confusing... We ordered chicken & rice soup (which could have been less oily) and calamari (which could have been more crispy) for apps. The entrees were just okay as well. Shrimp scampi pasta had a funky aftertaste and the shrimp was slightly over cooked and burnt. The veal was also too oily. Overall the food was underwhelming. Seems like the place could've been more popular a few years ago but never kept up with the times. The food was meh and the waiter made us feel uncomfortable, so overall not an experience I would return to.

Finally warm again! The snow has all pretty much melted and my dogs were pumped to go run their hearts out. Unfortunately, it was so muddy from the melting snow that the dog parks were closed :( we went on a walk instead on the trails, which was a breathtaking experience when we got to the landings to see the river! Just wish I knew that the dog parks close from being too muddy... Aren't dogs meant to frolic in the dirty mess? Lol

The restaurant atmosphere really gives you the feeling of being in a seaside shack. Along with great live music and nice drinks on tap, this place serves some great oyster and seafood dishes. Will definitely go again soon

Great food, but slow service. My girlfriend and I went out for a weekend dinner here and took advantage of a Groupon deal. We had ordered their ribeye and mussels - the ribeye came out a perfect medium rare with a great sear and the mussels in a wonderful and flavorful sauce. We were going to order dessert, but we were too stuffed! The waiter was also very helpful with explaining the menu, but I wish he had shortened the intervals of checking in on us, so we didn't have to wait so long to order and to clear the check.

Seoul Q just had their grand opening recently and my friends and I have been raving to go. There aren't any high quality Korean BBQs in St Louis, so we were even more psyched that we'll finally have a go-to place. Let's start with the food - Great portions and great taste. The marinades for the meat was really good - we had ordered the marinated pork belly and shoulder and there was an error with ordering/management or something and we also got an order or marinade short ribs. The pork belly and shoulder was a spicy marinade and the short ribs had sweet/soy sauce marinade and both had a very balanced flavors. In addition, we ordered the Kalbi Hot Pot and let me tell you - that thing warmed us up right away (it was 20 degrees outside that night)! Very calming and homecooked style flavors, with the broth being light at the same time. The last thing I want to say is that there are some logistical kinks that they need to work out - too many customers and too little waiters, which means they were overworked and stressed out. I'm sure you guys will work it out soon. Overall, a very great experience! Q on!
