Irish or not, every year at least 39% of the total population claim to celebrate St Patrick's Day. In Ohio alone, 10-15% of the population are of Irish ancestry.

Did you know that the population in Ireland is approximately 4.6 million, but there are about 36 million Americans with Irish ancestors? So what does this mean?

For one, it mean's that a DUI attorney is going to be extremely busy come March 18th!

All joking aside, it is a day of celebration for many across the U.S. With green beer, green rivers, parades, and the 5.5 million people who visit the St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, there is certainly going to be a lot of drinking going on.

Guinness seems to be the beer of choice on St Patrick's Day. On any other day, people consume approximately 5.5 million pints of it, but on St. Patty's Day - 13 million. And that is just Guinness beer. What about all of the other popular ales, wines, wine coolers, and mixed drinks that will be served on this one day of the year?

st patricks day 2017Of the 30 million people celebrating on this day, approximately 84% of them will be sporting a green wardrobe. They will wake up the next morning to green beads hanging from their rear-view mirror, or maybe they will wake up to them still being dangling around their neck.

Any way you look at it, the celebration does not continue for some. On St. Patrick's Day in 2010, alcohol related crashes took a life every 51 minutes. Just think about that for a minute. Every 51 minutes, someone got behind the wheel of a vehicle after an entire day of drinking green Guinness beer with the intention of going home to sleep it off, but instead, they put themselves at deaths door.

It is a scary number, and one that many of us do not consider when we order our first drink on this day of celebration.

Do yourself a favor, and a favor for all of the other drivers on the road, and get yourself a safe ride home. There are so many options today that it really makes no sense to drive while under the influence.

attorney marketing onlineHave you ever heard people say that it takes 3 years of being in business to start earning a profit? It has been a topic of many conversations, and I believe that in many cases it is true. With that said, the internet has given us a way to say that we mean business.

According to the Small Business Association (SBA), not even half of small businesses survive for more than 5 years. There are many reasons for this, but a few of the top factors include poor location, improper management of inventory, lack of business experience, using business funds for personal use, poor sales process, and a lack of experience among other reasons.

Although a law firm does not necessarily have to worry about some of the factors listed above, such as inventory and many times the location, they are just as likely to go under as any other business if not properly managed in the other areas.

Take the subject of the sales process. If you are not able to close a sale, it doesn't matter how many potential clients come through your door, you will eventually lose enough that it will become the norm.

The internet takes care of the beginning phases of the sales process. Your website begins to sell your services before you ever speak to a potential client. That is, if potential clients can even find your website.

We spoke with Melissa Ritter, founder of a Cleveland SEO firm specializing in attorney marketing, and according to statements she made during our interview, some attorneys are not good at closing a deal. If an individual calls for a quote, then say they are going to shop around, that is pretty much where the conversation ends. You can find their Columbus services here.

A good business owner must be good at sales regardless of what industry they are in. The closing process is the most important aspect of obtaining new customers.

For this reasons, having a website that explains not only your services but why a potential client should choose you is imperative in today's age. The generation that we are now dealing with expects this. They are not going to call someone unless they can find them online. That is simply the new age of marketing.

In summary, if you are a law firm looking to grow your business, you must have a presence online to attract the majority of what will become your new clients.

 

 

xout for acneIf there’s something that parents of teenagers’ face, it’s pimples and blemishes. Parents feel the pain their teenagers feel whenever they go through puberty with the horrible side effects of pimples. The first question asked is "how do I get rid of them"?

What is the best treatment system to help fight and prevent the breakouts from occurring?

Plenty of companies have researched and designed products aimed to aid in the fight against acne, and Proactive is one of those companies.

Back in September of 2011, the makers of Proactive announced its newest product X Out. This product was designed with teens in mind, working as a wash-in treatment. The product was created to wash the acne medicine into the teen’s pores. By doing so, the treatment promises to get rid of the pimples that are already present and aid in killing off the bacteria that causes the breakouts. Not only does the treatment take care of the pimples, but it also nourishes the teenager’s skin.

How Simple Is It to Use?

You must wash your face for 2-minutes twice every day. This is highly important when using this product if you want the medicine to truly be effective when it comes to washing it into the skin’s pores. If you do not follow this part of the instruction, your results may take longer to see. And if you purchase this product, why not use it to its full potential? Why would you want to see yourself and/or your teen wait longer?

One exception to this would be when you first begin using it, you may experience some redness and/or dryness. Should this occur, limit use to once a day to allow your system a chance to accept it.

There are plenty of X Out reviews online where you can research some more, and decide if you feel the product is right for you.

So, what’s in this treatment? That is an important question.

· Now any skin care product may cause you to have an allergic reaction and X Out is no different. If you do not know if you are allergic to benzoyl peroxide or a salicylic acid-containing product like this one, the best thing to do is to test for the allergic reaction. How do you do that? Easy, you just apply the product to one or two of the affected areas, however, this has to be done within the first 3 days. If you find yourself itching and breaking out, please discontinue and then seek medical attention immediately.

· Are there some side effects? Of course, there might be some side effects. Some of those side effects include your skin becoming dry or irritated. If you are an individual who is sensitive to benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid-containing products, do not use this product without consulting your physician.

· Now it has been said multiple times throughout this article that this medicine does soak into the skin’s pores. Now how does that happen? One of the ingredients in X Out is derived from coconut, which allows the dirt and gunk in your skin to be removed, making room for the benzoyl peroxide to get into your pores.

· You can purchase the product on their website or you can give them call at (800) 524-7952. And the best thing about this purchase is that it has a 60-day money back guarantee. It doesn’t get any better than that.

Alternatively, you can purchase it from Amazon without the hassle of subscribing to a monthly subscription.

So parents and teens, don’t worry. Your acne can be gone without the hassle of dermatologists and expensive prescriptions.
