Finding the Perfect Condo

beautiful condos

If you take a leisure walk or drive around your city, you will notice that people have changed the way they used to live. Now you will see condos being built and most of the units already bought. Living in a condo has made staying in the city more convenient. Conventionally, if you worked in a city, you needed to find a house that was located on the outskirts, meaning that you had to commute every single day. Commuting every day is expensive, and people ended up wasting more time on the road. Now to come to your aid are condos. Here is how to go about finding and choosing a perfect condo unit in the city.

With Google, you can search for condos that are available in any city you want. The internet also makes it convenient for you to see in pictures the condos that are available and their floor plan.


People have always trusted references when they want to do business. Therefore, you can also talk to people who can advise you about the different condo units available or under construction.

Essential tips for buying concert tickets online


A lot of people worldwide, especially the music lovers, follow their favorite singers, bands, or performers on the different social media networking sites and see updates about them as well as news about their upcoming concerts. Once they see announcements on the schedules of the musicians’ concerts, the fans look into buying the tickets right away to make sure that they will have a spot in the venue.

So if you are a fan, then you should know where to buy the ticket for your favorite musician’s show. A good avenue for this would be online.

Purchasing concert tickets online

dhjdhd64Shows or tours like the studio killers concert are announced online, TV, and even on the different radio stations. Once the announcements have been made, millions of fans rush into buying the tickets. This is why it is highly recommended that you get yours in advance too so you can get one. Otherwise, there will be no tickets left, and you won’t be able to see the concert.

Here are tips for buying concert tickets online:

Look for pre-sales online

If you want to get a great deal, you should look for pre-sales online. Usually, the artists offer the tickets before they finally open the door to the public. If you are lucky enough to get into the pre-sale, then it is likely that you will get the ticket at a discounted price which is way lower than the regular price. To increase your chances of availing of such sales, you can join the fans club, or you can also check with your credit card company.

Go online early

Just in case you did not make it to the pre-sale, you can wait for the selling of tickets to the public. But you have to act fast and go online because, for sure, there are other millions of fans out there who are waiting for this moment. The tickets can be sold out in just a few minutes. So, make sure that you do it quickly.

Buy from resellers

Creating and publishing content that people genuinely love (Ray-Ban, Johnnie Walker)
Helping bring people together in interesting ways (Bendigo Bank, Football Australia)
Doing crazy shit that makes people laugh or intrigued (Volkswagen, Toyota)
Websites that actually do useful stuff for people (Nike)
Being aware of and connected to what’s going on in popular culture (MYER)
Having a real, distinctive, human personality (Steinlager)
Not cool

Assuming that anyone is interested in what you have to say about your brand
Trying to communicate your message before you’ve earned your audience’s attention
Assuming that the people who watch or engage with your ads are stupid
Taking away privacy and not at least giving relevance back in return
Letting your advertising agency setup a Facebook page for your campaign because “social media is important”
Not actually using the media that you’re making decisions about
Advertising that interrupts or annoys people in any way

I don’t have a read [on Sarah Palin]. I try not to make, or set opinions about people that I haven’t had any substantive interaction with. … I think it’s wonderful to have strong female voices out there, but I don’t know her.

Andy sent me a link to Flattr last week. It’s a service that is setting out to revolutionise how people get paid for online content. I’m always pretty suspicious of any startup that claims they are going to ‘revolutionise’ something, but it’s an interesting idea. These were my initial thoughts:
