Murphy's Proposed Budget Will Force More Residents and Businesses To Leave New Jersey

Gloucestercitynews.net files By Dave Lemery | The Center Square (The Center Square) – New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has sought to portray himself as a fiscally cautious, business-friendly leader since taking office.

 How to Protect Parcels Before Delivery

(August 25, 2020)--Parcels need to arrive intact. Your recipients will feel terrible if they see that the items are damaged. Protecting the packages isn't only dependent on your chosen delivery company. You also have to prepare well before sending them out for delivery.

Paying for another round of delivery is more expensive than investing in a quality box. Invest in internal packaging Regardless of the nature of the products you deliver, internal packaging needs...

With Bellmawr's local election in November, I am supporting Independent Council candidates Bill Groff and Sandy Valdez.

Why should small businesses opt-in for cost-efficient marketing ideas? Inputs by Ej Dalius

(AUGUST 25, 2020)--It is not sufficient to launch a business and then get complacent about it. There are times when small business owners tend to do that. The main reason for this is the limited cash. You will need some money to translate your marketing strategies into action. For instance, if you have added billboard or electronic media advertising as a part of your outdoor marketing strategy, you will have to execute the same by investing in a billboard ad design template and a television media ad shoot. Small businesses might not have the budget to accomplish every grand and costly marketing strategy that they have planned. Hence, it is necessary to say yes to ideas that would cost less and yield the best results.... Read more →
