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.

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, [...]

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

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!

I've had a lot of different Asian foods in my lifetime - growing up in an Asian household, visiting relatives in Asia, eating home cooked meals with my Asian friends' families (of all different kinds of Asian descents), and dining in Asian restaurants in a college town where the student population is over 20% Asian. On my campus, we had a semi-fast food Thai restaurant which was great on a college student's budget and the flavor kicked you like a mule (in a good way). The food here at Sen Thai, though, was bland, didn't have "personality", and was basically just average. The decor and atmosphere seemed classy and elegant, though, and since it's one of the few Thai restaurants downtown, I had some high hopes, but I was paying "bistro" prices for "takeout" quality food. Nothing wrong with the food - just a mismatch of quality, atmosphere, and price.

I live just down the block from here and takeout from Hiro's has been a frequent endeavor. However, I'd dine-in for the best experience, because the atmosphere completes the pan-Asian menu's experience. The manager is always there to greet customers with a smile, has a great way of articulating the menu, and takes pride in the food that comes out of his kitchen. The waitresses that work there are very friendly and is trained well on the menu items as well. The only catch is that I'd like to see the prices come down a couple dollars, because I feel like the menu straddles a fine line between upscale and casual. For example, their Hiro ramen is their most popular food item - broth is light, but flavorful, noodles have great texture and taste, and the side dishes inside all create a wonderful experience, but ramen itself has a history with a humble culture. Overall, their food and the atmosphere creates a pan-Asian fusion experience that I want again!

Their burritos are so big that I'd eat it over at least two meals. With that said, the price to portion ratio is pretty freaking great. Additionally, their foods have great flavors with bold seasoning and the entire atmosphere is great. I just wish that there was an easy way to do take-out from here, instead of having to order at the bar and look like an awkward patron, because I'd eat their burritos every day!

This has been my go-to Indian takeout restaurant. I haven't had a chance to dine-in here, so I can't speak to their service, but their Kashmiri naan is absolutely amazing blend of salty nuts and sweet fruits. My girlfriend can't get enough of their Chicken Tikka Masala (so she doesn't order anything else), but I'm on a quest to try at least everything on the menu once. So far, I've really enjoyed the Lamb Saag and Lamb Curry. Their foods come out with a very tolerable spiciness when mild. They also have an option to make it spicy, as well.

This is a great little store with that family-owned atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and at-home. This "convenience shop" I guess you'd call it, sells some great food, makes awesome coffee, and has all the staple pantry items you need. What makes this place a 5-star, though, is definitely their friendly service and attitudes that every one of their employees has for the customers. Would come here time and time again for my caffeine and staple grocery needs!
