Keeping Out The Creepy Crawlies

Have you just moved into a new apartment? Have you noticed that your new neighbourhood has rats running around at night and the occasional cockroach that ventures out at night? Well we’ve got some tips for making sure these little pests stay well away from your apartment.

Do Not Leave Food Out
One of the easiest ways to attract rodents and other unwanted creepy crawlies and household pests is to leave out food in the open overnight. Did you order in a pizza and get too lazy to put the leftovers away? You can be guaranteed that the box will be visited by a cockroach in the night! Put away all leftovers – either refrigerate them or store food in air tight container. This has the added benefit of keeping your leftovers fresh longer!

Wipe Down Your Counter Tops
At the end of the night take two minutes to wipe clean any surfaces you may have been eating on or placed a drink on. Wipe down your microwave and make sure that your sink is free of any gunk or traces of food. Do not leave dirty dishes in the sink, load them up in the dishwasher or stick them in the fridge overnight if you’re too lazy to wash them.

Get Help from the Pro’s
There’s no shame in getting in a professional to help with pest control Ipswich. You could either hire them on your own to proof your home from an invasion of cockroaches, termites and rodents or you could ask your building supervisor or landlord to hire some pest management services. While it might be costly, in the long run it’ll mean that you have less to worry about and can sleep in peace, knowing that there isn’t a mouse feasting on your left over pizza!

Take Out Your Garbage Regularly
Even if you do hire professionals to help out with a pest control problem, you’ll still want to keep your apartment clean to ensure that there’s no reason for any pest to even attempt to breach the safeguards you’ve put in place. Line your garbage cans with the disposable garbage bags. Tie it up each night and make sure that you take your garbage out every night or at the very least every two days. Make sure that you set it out for the garbage collectors to take away and that the bags are tied securely. Garbage lying around on the street outside your home will only attract rodents and creepy crawlies. Keeping your surrounding clean and fresh will help you keep your apartment a pest free zone.

Launching Your New Product

Back in the day it was quite challenging to launch your products because the press and the newspapers were the only mode to make the consumers aware of what you are offering. Looking at the current situation and how things have changed, the process has become much simpler now. We could make use of the internet to get through the initial stages of promotion and then once the launch date nears up we could call the press and do a formal launch. The process does not look as easy as it sounds and there are many more aspects to it.

The first thing which you have to do is to start early. You might need to get the attention of all the reporters. For this to be achieved you might have to make sure that you have a solid preplan. You could make use of flyer printing online and send invitations and all the details about your launch to the press. This will start up a conversation in the industry. Outreach activities could be started 6-8 weeks prior to the launch date. You could start things off by making your products available for the top influencers in the industry. For example you could send away special packages to the lead critics in the industry so that they would write something exciting about your product and this would make the public excited for the launch.

You need to understand that for your launch to be successful you need to have a great prelaunch. Therefore, you could make use of cheap brochure printing services and send them out to the general public. You could hire individuals to give away brochures to the people who are walking on the road and even go to an extent where you send them to the houses of the general public. You could also plan something unusual during the period of the release. An example would be, you could come up with a funny video which is centered around your product or you could even create an infographic which is centered around your event. Another method which could be adopted is guerilla marketing. This is a technique which is used by businesses to promote their concepts in an unconventional way. This will make sure that you garner the attention of the general public in a memorable way.

Finally, the last method which could be adopted is marketing via social media. You could do social media giveaways and ad campaigns to get the public talking about your product. This way you could ensure that the hype is built up so that the sales would go off the roofs when the product is launched.
