Leading Nutrition Store Chooses Turbine For Digital Marketing

Lincoln, NE (PRWEB) October 17, 2012

Chad Case, owner of Max Muscle of Nebraska and Director of Nutrition for the National Football Academies, has partnered with Turbine Interactive to build his brand through the strategic use of social media.

“With the way social marketing has exploded, if you are not using that as a vehicle to drive your business, simply put, you are going to be left behind,” said Case, whose Max Muscle franchise has been rated first in customer satisfaction for six years. “In visiting with Jason Petersen and his team, it was clear that this was a team that was focused on driving results.”

Petersen, Turbine’s founder and CEO, explained that his Lincoln-based firm takes a fresh look at every client’s business, industry and message in creating an effective digital marketing strategy.

“Just like in traditional marketing, there are principles in digital placement, but

you cannot take a cookie-cutter approach,” Petersen said. “It’s important for us to understand goals, driving values, competition and the realistic resources a client is able to commit before we recommend the best way to leverage social media.”

In working with Max Muscle, Turbine crafted a strategy that includes building not only the Max Muscle Brand, but Case’s reputation as a nutritional and supplements expert to coaches and athletes. The strategy outlines how to use a very specific focus each quarter to help Case and his Max Muscle team keep their digital message on target and move toward business goals.

“As a owner of multiple businesses, being able to see tangible numbers, to be explained things in an easy to understand format, and to also be able to let a team work on many of these things for me, were all strong driving forces in what drew me to Turbine,” Case said. “Instead of a hodgepodge and potpourri approach to social media, having a strategic game plan to help me put my best foot forward was extremely important.”

Petersen has worked with more than 1,300 businesses and organizations on effectively using digital assets including websites, videos, social media platforms and mobile apps.

“With the digital space changing literally daily, businesses like Max Muscle need a partner to help them navigate,” Petersen said. “No business person has time or money to waste and digital marketing can quickly become a black hole.”

“I think the biggest problem is understanding how, when, and why to use each (social media stream), to have content for each, and to keep it all organized,” Case said. “As business owners, there are a plethora of things pulling you in multiple directions at any given moment. Having a team like Turbine to help keep you on track is tremendously beneficial.”

A Shopping Guide to Mosaic Tiles for Bathrooms is introduced by HomeThangs.com Home Improvement Super Store

(PRWEB) October 22, 2012

HomeThangs.com the Home Improvement Super Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.

Its fairly common knowledge that one of the best ways to enhance the appearance and value of the bathroom is to add new bathroom tiling, or replace existing tile. But picking just the right bathroom tiles the style, color, material and size can be a little confusing. HomeThangs.com introduced a guide to help consumers choose their tile wisely,

1. Material

Choosing the right material for bathroom tiling is one of the very first and most important steps in a major bathroom tile remodel. What material is chosen will be a major determining factor in the final look of the remodel, the cost of the tile and installation, and what kind of maintenance will have to be done over time.

a. Ceramic

Ceramic bathroom tiles are the most common, easiest to install, and are typically the least expensive. Made of fired clay and other materials, ceramic tiles are quite durable. Because theyre typically glazed, theyre non-porous and hold up well against water, scratching, and staining, and require very little maintenance. Ceramic tiles can be dyed almost any color and finished with more or less shine, and formed to a wide variety of shapes, including textures, like those found on the Soci Sienna Bien mosaic tile. They also make an excellent surface for hand painted tiles, but dont have any of the beautiful natural variance of stone tiles.


Stone mosaic tiles, on the other hand, are shaped from natural rock, meaning that no two are quite the same. This is nice for a couple reasons it means that not only will each and every installation be unique, but also that one wont ever get an accidental pattern in tile as one can with manufactured tiles. The flip side is that if going for a very specific color, it may be hard to get a full floor worth of stone bathroom tiling to match. Smaller tiles, like the Dark Emperador, Crema Marfil, And Absolute Back Marble Tile Mosaic Sheets by Soci, for example, are designed to be close in color and pattern, but still come with a natural variance on each sheet. Stone is also one of the most expensive types of tile available, and it requires careful and consistent maintenance to keep the stone in good condition.

c. Glass

Finally, glass mosaic tiles have a bright, shiny finish and are available in a huge variety of colors and shapes. Typically (but not always) smaller than either stone or ceramic tiles, glass tiles have been traditionally used as mosaic tiles, for decorative rather than functional bathroom tiling. Smaller glass tiles are available in patterned sheets, like the beautiful blue Martini Mountain Lake Mosaic for example. Larger glass tiles are well suited to the walls and shower interior as they repel water and are very easy to clean.

d. Metal

Sleek, solid and unrelentingly stylish, metal tiles have changed the face of mosaics by delivering the seductive sheen of metal for interior surfaces. Metal mosaic tile can be used for almost any commercial and residential interior application, including floor accents, walls, ceilings, etc. Metal tiles must be regularly cleaned and maintained to extend their life and beauty. Most dirt and stains can be cleaned with a mild detergent and soft cloth or sponge. Fingerprints, streaks and watermarks can be removed with olive oil.

2. Texture

Texture is an important element when deciding on the new bathroom tiling primarily for safety reasons. Smooth tile (no matter what the material) on the floor will increase the likelihood of a fall accident. Textured tile, like Chiseled Ivory Travertine Tile from Soci for example, is more likely to prevent slipping. Counter and wall tiles should also be sealed and non-porous, to prevent water damage or the growth of mold or mildew.

3. Color

This one is fairly simple, and probably best left to personal taste, but as a rough guideline, white, yellow, and peach tones will help brighten and warm the bathroom, enhancing the natural light and creating an inviting space, whereas blues and greens will cool it, making it feel light and airy. Darker, more dramatic colors like black, red, or gem tones, as well as gray scale bathroom tiling will create a bold, modern look, while an all white bathroom will work well with a frequently changing decor. If opting for the last, mixing shapes, sizes, and styles will keep the look interesting, like combining this Crystal Ice Blocco Tile with a matching, smaller square Crystal Ice Piazza by Martini Mosaic.

4. Style

In a period style home, choosing period inspired bathroom tiling can be important to maintaining the overall value of your home. If home is traditional in other ways, matching a historical tile can be incredibly desirable to buyers.

For a more modern design, on the other hand, one almost definitely want to opt for stone tile floors and glass bathroom tiling throughout the rest of the bathroom. The reflective glass surface of the tile (plus the minimalist but dramatic repeating patterns available from companies like Martini Mosaic) are the heart and soul of modern design, and will definitely help elevate the decor.

5. Size

Size is an incredibly important choice as well. Smaller bathrooms are typically associated with smaller tiles, but using larger ones on the floor or in the shower can actually make the space seem larger. Using very tiny tiles in a wide space, on the other hand, can make a larger space seem crowded and busy. A lot of large tiles that are starting to look a little bland can be balanced out by a line of accent tiles, like simple but elegant Fleur De Lis trim by Soci for example, to visually divide the space.

A Shopping Guide on what to look for in Traditional Bathroom Vanities is introduced by HomeThangs.com Home Improvement Super Store

(PRWEB) July 23, 2012

HomeThangs.com the Home Improvement Super Store has made their goal to deliver the right product to the consumer, with that in mind, shopping and home design tips, as well as special product selections are being introduced.

When it comes to choosing an overarching decor for the next bathroom remodel, it is important to strike a fine balance between designs that are currently trendy and pieces that will continue to look good as styles change. If the lifespan of a bathroom is expected to be longer than the typical design cycle, while taking some inspiration from current fads, its often wiser to opt for something a little more time-tested.

Traditional bathroom vanities are a great place to start. The combination of some small, vintage-inspired detailing and sleek, simple, contemporary lines gives a hint of vintage charm and value without an old fashioned look, and the simplicity of modern design without any of the coldness. Finished wood is always a safe bet because it never goes out of style.

When shopping for a traditional bathroom vanity, HomeThangs recommends a few things to keep in mind.
