Written by Small Business Magazine on October 29th, 2018. Posted in Black retractable belt stanchions, Church curtains, Satin drapery

Big events are prevalent throughout the United States, from weddings to bat and bar mitvahs to graduation parties – to just about anything type of party you could possibly conceive of throwing. But, of course, planning a large event or party takes a lot of time and dedication, and can be difficult and emotionally draining. For many people, hiring a professional and bringing them on board to take on the meat of the planning is a hugely beneficial step to take, as it saves them both time and emotional energy – and likely some money as well.

In fact, up to one hundred and thirty four thousand people are currently employed in the event planning industry alone, working as caterers and event planners and everything in between. Such people can handle everything from a corporate event to a wedding (of which there are very nearly two and a half million of each and every year here in the United States alone). Hiring such an event professional is likely to make the planning process as stream

Written by Small Business Magazine on October 29th, 2018. Posted in Four generations in the workplace, Generations speaker, Recruiting and retaining speaker

From the funny keynote speaker to the typical recruiting speaker to the retention speaker, public speaking is a great way to tell people about the place that you work, the company that you own, and why they should come and work for you. In fact, a recruiting speaker or retention speaker can even be a great way to boost your employee retention rates, getting people – particularly young people – excited about a job even before they officially apply for it.

And, of course, young people are hugely prevalent in the workforce today, though five generations are currently working side by side (the first time in history that this has happened). But millennials, who were born between the years of 1981 and 1996, are slowly taking over, now making up more than thirty five percent (thirty seven percent) of the job force at the current date. In the coming years, o

How to Maximize Profits with the Help of LED Signs

Written by Small Business Magazine on October 25th, 2018. Posted in Gsa led sign design, Led business signs, Signage

There are countless components that play into consumer decisions when they are faced with products in a supermarket. For example, a mother who has visited her local market to pick up ingredients for tonight’s dinner might make her decision based on anything from past dinners she has made, to convenience, to supermarket discounts and prices. Supermarkets serve a complex consumer base in which the needs and decisions of each individual are unique. However, the world of advertising has made it possible for businesses to show their customers the best way their needs can be met at the establishment. Advertisements can come in the form of newspaper coupons and television commercials, but there is one form of advertisement that can sway a consumer’s decision in a split second: free standing LED signs for businesses.

A free standing sign is, well just that: a form of signage that is strategically placed inside or just outside of a business, with the aid of an electronic lighted sign for

Here’s What You Can Store in Your Portable Storage Buildings

Written by Small Business Magazine on October 24th, 2018. Posted in Uncategorized

Produced in one-fifth the time and at half the cost of site-built homes, manufactured housing assembled in a controlled, factory environment uses fewer materials and generates 35% to 40% less waste than comparable site-built units. That’s why portable storage buildings are being embraced as a financially and environmentally efficient option for all types of residential and commercial storage needs. Don’t think you need extra storage? Think again — here are just a few of the many types of belongings that portable storage buildings can help keep safe and well protected.

Vehicles

If you work in the transportation industry — or any industry that requires sufficient upkeep of a large number of vehicles, for that matter — then used modular buildings may be the right investment for your needs. From trucks to vans, trailers, and more, any number of large vehicles can be stored for safekeeping in a modular storage building. Don’t let your vehicles gather rust or wear as a result of improper storage — invest in their longevity with a storage system that’s secure, protective, and reliable.

Lawn Tools

Similarly, landscaping businesses and other professionals working outdoors can keep all of their equipment safe by storing tractors, shovels, leaf blowers, rakes, lights, hoses, and more in an appropriately sized modular storage building. Even equipment that doesn’t have a motor is susceptible to damage through the elements — it doesn’t take long for gardening tools to become rusted in the rain. And covering this equipment isn’t very protective. Invest in a modular building for an efficient storage solution.

Other Machinery

It doesn’t end there — modular storage buildings are particularly beneficial for construction companies, which can safely store all high-end equipment. This includes bulldozers, excavators, telehandlers, and more. This equipment is very expensive and needs to be stored properly, making modular buildings an efficient and affordable solution.

Keep in mind that any residential accessory building larger than 200 square feet will require a building plan review and permit. Regardless of size, any electrical, plumbing or mechanical work will require a permit and all building locations must honor zoning and subdivision set backs. Fortunately, portable storage buildings are versatile for residential and commercial use and rarely require electrical or plumbing work.
