Seal Your Boxes Properly With Duct Tape

seal-boxIf you’re moving house, one of the most important things you can do is to seal your boxes properly. I know there is always a lot to think about when you move house, but sealing your boxes should be a priority.

Think of all those valuables you have, whether they are worth a few dollars, or have some sentimental value. Making sure the contents of your boxes are safe and secure is definitely worth your while.

I have moved house almost 25 times because my Father was in the military and we were stationed here and there. Because we moved around quite a bit (I’d moved 4 times by the age of 5), we all eventually became quite the expert when it came to packing boxes diligently. One of the best things you can do to make sure the move goes ok, is to plan ahead and have as much packed as you can before the week of your move dawns.

Duct Tape Sealing – Start Planning Ahead

You need to think about what you won’t need to use in the next few weeks, and start putting those things into boxes. Once you have done that, you need to seal the boxes with duct tape and write on the outside of the box. You will need to know what is inside the box in case there’s something in particular that you need to find. It’s also easier when you get to your new house and you want to put your boxes of things in your bedroom.

When it comes to sealing your boxes, you should think about using duct tape or even use velcro tape if you have it. This is because they are both strong tapes, and so much better than regular tapes that people would use to put posters up on walls with.

You don’t have to go overboard with your tape, just ensure you have enough to keep the boxes sealed and the vulnerable areas strong. Remember that you cannot strengthen a box by adding a lot more tape, in this case you will probably just need another box.

Sealing Plastic Bags With Double Sided Tape

Please make sure that if you’re packing something in a plastic bag, that you don’t use regular tape as it will not hold it together very well. Use the right kind of tape, and you won’t be disappointed when you get to the other end. Double sided tape is an awesome way to do this!

Even though it’s likely you’re going to need to use a lot of double sided tape, no matter what type you buy, the good news is that it’s fairly cheap and you always get a lot of it on the roll.

When you’re sealing boxes, make sure you use enough so there’s a little bit of tape overlapping the edge of the box. If you do this, you can be sure that your box will be secure as long as you haven’t over-packed it.

Make sure you have plenty of tape to go around, and remember it’s always better to have a little too much than finding out you don’t have enough.

This is how real boxes are sealed:

The 45 Trademark Categories

Some very famous trademarks...

Some very famous trademarks…

Be warned that you will have to search through a large bundle of trademarked goods before you can successfully apply for a trademark yourself. You will also have to make sure you register your products in the correct category too; there are 45 categories in total and you may need a bit of advice as to which category each of your products falls into.

Once you have passed all these stages, you should be aware that as per the Australian Trademark Office procedures, your application will be made public in the Trademarks journal. This occurs because it gives other companies the opportunity to oppose your application if they think you have copied their products, or if they think there will be a potential issue with your products.

Australian Trademarks And Beyond

Once your application has been approved, your trademark will be registered through-out Australian for ten years. If you wish to have your trademark registered elsewhere, you will have to get in touch with a trademark attorney once more, so they can help you out.

As you can see, the process of applying for a trademark is not straight forward; there is a lot of work involved and it can take months before you get the results you want. So why don’t you let a professional help you out, so they can do all the paperwork for you, while you get on with your day.

Financial Planning and Accounting Courses For You

PrintMaking changes to your employment can have a huge impact on your future. If you’re thinking of making some changes, you should consider doing it soon before you lose your bottle. A lot of people stay in the same job because they didn’t take the opportunity to make changes to their career, and they have regretted it ever since. This is a real shame as they could have progressed so much further, and even been happier with their career. Please do not let this happen to you as it can’t be nice being in a job you’re simply not happy with, and living with regrets about your employment.

Your New Accounting Course

You can be sure that your new course will open a gateway to your new career, and therefore your new future. Even if you intend to work in the same place, your new course will help you to gain better qualifications, and maybe even help you to get promoted.

When you take a look at the courses you’re able to apply for, make sure you have a look at them in detail as they need to contain the right content. If you’re not sure which course or courses you need to take in order to get your foot in the door, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Giving Financial Planning Advice To Others

accounting-processIf you want to get a job that involves giving financial advice to others, you will have to do two things. You will need to apply for some financial planning courses, and you will also need to make sure that these courses include accredited accounting training. This training is so important because without it you won’t be able to give any financial advice, and that’s not a good thing.

There are many jobs out there today that ask you to have the right qualification so you can give financial advice, whether it is to the public, or to other members of your team. What’s more is there are also finance companies out there who only take on people who have the financial planning training, even if it’s unlikely that you’ll need to give financial advice to anyone.  This is because having this qualification means you’re competent enough to do the job properly.

Applying For Accounting Jobs

Once you have completed your course, you should think about applying for jobs as soon as you can. The world of finance is a fast-paced and competitive one, and if you can get your foot in the door with the right qualifications, you’re in with more of a chance.

Before you apply for your course, make sure you’re going to be taught everything you need to know in order to advance in your chosen career. If you’re in any doubt at any time, just get in touch with someone who can give you a bit of careers advice. Start planning which course you’re going to take, start planning today so you can get that little bit closer to your new career, and a happier future.

Should you go longtail?

imagesThe long-tail strategy to SEO involves adding many somewhat relevant but very specific keywords (i.e., secondary keywords) to a website in order to get many of those individuals, who may or may not be looking for what your website has to offer, onto the site. Though this strategy is still in its teens, it is well past its prime in SEO years. Nevertheless, there is still use for it. But which websites, if any, should implement this ageing strategy?

Do not Bend your website towards the long tail. It may be tempting to get carried away creating dozens of separate, albeit roughly related, pages in order to maximize long tail results. For example, a website created to promote the awareness of the koala bear’s status as an endangered species may contain dozens of pages concerning the koala bear, though they may have little to do with the koala’s status. Still, the long tail may serve its purpose in this case because people with some interest in koalas will reach the site. One seo-company-logoproblem is that websites can stray too far from their primary purpose by including several pages that do not fit with the rest of the site. It is quite distracting for websites to contain so many tangential pages that do not contribute at all to the viewers’ experiences. Ideally, web designers can successfully hide long tail pages by created few, or no, links from the main pages to them while providing sufficient links on the long tail pages to the main pages. This way, the long tail pages will not distract viewers.  These are the kind of things that any good SEO company will be able to sort out for you.
