Using Social Media to Grow Your Business

April 26, 2017

 

Looking to increase your brand’s reach on social media? Social media is one of the most cost-effective ways to connect those internet users with your business. To make your business communication more effective, count on Prosperity Research Digital Agency (PRDA). With more than a decade’s experience, Asia’s leading social media agency provides so many digital solutions no other social media agency can offer. This way, you can just catapult yourself to success by optimizing and spreading the word with PRDA! Read on for a few tips to ensure your business is using social media effectively:

Business Presence on Popular Search Engines

At a bare minimum, you need to make sure that your business has a presence on Google and Facebook. If your business has been around a while, it may already have a listing on Google, but you need to claim that listing and ensure it has correct and relevant information.

 

Ensure your Social Media Presence is Diverse

There is a real advantage to having a social media presence on several different platforms. Different sites can feed into each other, and each have their own unique advantages. For example; creating a YouTube page and posting a few videos is an easy way to boost your search ranking.

Schedule Your Postings

Reaching larger target audience on social media requires time management for your posts. Timing depends upon the type of social media site you’re using, as every social site has a different ‘best times’ for posting. Always schedule your posts for peak hours- this is something PRDA can manage for you!

 

A Helping Hand

Managing social media takes time and expertise, especially when your business is looking to maintain a presence across multiple sites. Some businesses delegate the maintenance of social media pages to someone already working in the office, but this often results in inconsistent quality. Personal experience with social media is useful, but an assistant with a Facebook page is not usually equipped to project a professional image for your brand. However, the social media experts at  Prosperity Research Digital Agency (PRDA) can always be availed for such service. Try their Free Facebook Report and Competitor Analysis here and let them help your brand succeed!

Healthy Gastronomy: Using Rapeseed Oil for Cookery

April 26, 2017

 

 

The popularity of rapeseed oil in cookery has surged since 2008 when it was discovered that it has amazing health benefits. This also explains why premium meat producer Flodins, dedicated to providing their customers with healthy foods, have found that carefully enriching pigs’ diets with Brassica napus seed(Rapeseed) improves the texture and flavour of the pork, as well as enhancing the level of Omega-3. Rapeseed oil is drawn from the black seeds of the rapeseed plant, a member of the brassica family. Read on to learn more about using Rapeseed Oil in your meals and it’s many health benefits.

Rapeseed Oil itself has a longer shelf life as compared to other cooking oils hence being very economical and healthy. Just make sure that it is properly stored in a dry place, shielded away from the sun. Cold rapeseed oil can be used as dressing for your salad- simply drizzle on with a high quality vinegar. When it is to be used for frying healthy, delicious meat or pork, then rapeseed oil has to be heated.

 

Rapeseed oil has many  health benefits, including the following:

  • It is high in the essential fatty acids omegas 3, 6, and 9.
  • Its omega 3 level is 10 times that of olive oil- these are very proactive when it comes to keeping cholesterol in check.
  • It has the lowest saturated fat levels of any oil, half that of olive oil.
  • It is an excellent source of vitamins E and K.
  • It has virtually no trans-fats.
  • It has no artificial preservatives.
  • It is not genetically modified.

These health benefits are accessible to almost everyone since rapeseed oil fits well into a vegetarian, kosher, halal, or gluten-free diet.

 

The high quality fat in Flodins Omega-3 Pork is distributed throughout the meat, which makes it more tender, tasty and full of the mouth-watering juices that every professional chef or home cook aims to bring to the table. Both quick to prepare, and with a better flavor and texture- it’s no surprise that many top Nordic chefs choose Omega-3 pork for their menus! Home cooks in Hong Kong can now also prepare amazingly delicious dinners for their families with Flodins award-winning Omega-3 Pork- it’s available at ParkNShop FUSION Supermarkets (Discovery Bay, Parkview) and TASTE Supermarkets (Festival Walk, Stanley Plaza and Hopewell Center).

Just Get Up and Dance!

April 26, 2017

 

Everyone loves to dance! People were shaking their stuff on the dance floor long before YouTube launched Gangnam Style and the Harlem Shake. Dancing is a skill; an art rather than just tapping your feet on the ground and clapping around. Dancing brings people close and helps them forget the world around them.  Committed to including the sports you love, DanceSport will be one of the sporting events at Gay Games Hong Kong 2022. Everybody is capable of moving to music. And dance breaks all barriers of race, gender, sexual orientation, and age.

Not everyone realizes that dancing has been a sport since the early 20th century. It was Camille de Rhynal, a French businessman, and other magnificent dancers who initiated dance contests in place of the traditional ballroom dances. In 1907, the first international Tango tournament was held in Nice, France and later followed in Germany and England. ‘DanceSport’ was the term coined by the World DanceSport Federation in 1980s.  As a sport, dance delivers all the physical requirements of a sport, and also incorporates unique artistic attributes. DanceSport is a balance of “Art and Athleticism”- most similarly seen in Ballet. Moreover, it represents the comprehensive image of an activity that remains within the reach of every individual- crossing all barriers.

No matter who you are, DanceSport is for you! One of the sporting events at Gay Games Hong Kong 2022, Dance Sport events will be sanctioned by IFSSDA (International Federation of Same- Sex Dance Association) and Asian Dance Sport Federation (ADSF). Planned event venue will be located at Queen Elizabeth Stadium Oi Kwan Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong Island.

Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 will be an empowering experience for all – anyone can participate- regardless of ability, age, sexual orientation, race, gender, nationality, political or religious beliefs, ethnic origins, or HIV status- and let their passion for sports bloom without fear of being judged or stigmatized. Show your support by following #GGHK2022 on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
