Influencer Marketing in 2020







Recently influencer marketing has gotten a social black eye, but in reality  the marketing industry has seen a huge increase in sales in the past 3 years due to influencer marketing. Many brands  rely on influencers and social media to promote their products. 

The consumers are more apt to purchase products that they have seen or read a favorable review on. Personally before I make a purchase I like to see what other people have said about the product and their success or ease of use. ( Or what might be negative about the product in question) 

Social media has a huge impact on sales. Seeing images of products, and reading what people have to say about them  brings a more personal feel to the marketing game. It actually builds a sense of trust in the consumer making them much more inclined to buy. Video reviews are an even bigger sales tool in my opinion because the consumer can not only see the product but can see it being used, giving them a visual on what it would be like to use it themselves. I know for myself, seeing a product that I'm considering purchasing being used and actually doing what it's supposed to do pushes me to buy.

I truly believe that most people feel the same way that I do about researching products online. I really like to know what other people think about something before I spend my money on it. Whether it's beauty products or even the newest toys on the market that my grandchildren want for Christmas, I like to do some research, and influencers make that research easy to access.

Without calling out a specific name of a toy, 2 years ago at Christmas time 2 of my grand daughters wanted the same toy. I had never heard of it. ( I guess I was a little behind the times) but I went on YouTube and watched a few videos about it. The videos were adults trying this toy out and having nearly as much fun as my grand daughters did on Christmas morning. Without  social media I wouldn't have know what in the world the kids were asking for, nor would I have been able to research that toy and feel good about buying it.

In this high tech, digital world of 2020, I think most people are going back to a simpler mind set as far as purchasing and marketing in one respect. Word of mouth even if it's through the internet on social media, it's the same tried and true, old fashioned method... word of mouth.  Influencers and video influencers give a more personal touch, and build a sense of trust which makes it easier for the consumer to part with their money and make a purchase. 

An influencer and their followers build a relationship of sorts and a certain trust after a while and that trust has a big impact on sales, not that the influencer is trying to make sales, but their followers value the influencer's opinion.


Wireless Video Doorbell








In this day and time home security is a must.  I have thought about so many different types of  devices and decided a  Wireless Video Doorbell would be a good option for my home. KuDiff has a really good one that meets the needs of my family. Now no matter where  I am I can see who is coming to my door and can even talk with them as well.

This smart doorbell only supports 2.4GHz WiFi (5GHz not supported), and the camera supports recording HD videos. You can pause anytime you want, zoom in or out, and get clear results.

You can live-monitor the surrounding area as well as pull up on-demand videos of past activity.

KuDiff smart doorbell has many security featues to keep you and your family safe. It has human detection and offers many alert notifcations that you can chose from on the app.

Kitchen Knife Set - Professional 16 Piece Coated Stainless Steel Cutlery Set







I love to cook and having the right tools for the job are very imprtant to me. Have you ever tried to peel ot chop veggies with a dull knife? Yeah me too, that turns the joy of cooking into just plain kitchen drudgery. I wanted to take the joy back and decided to order a new set of kitchen knives and I'm so glad I did.

The Kitchen Knife Set I bought is a 16 piece professional set. It comes with 6 - 4 1/2 inch steak knives, a 3 inch peeling knife, 3.25 inch paring knife,  4.5 inch utility knife,  5 inch Partoku knife, 7 inch Santoku knife, 8 inch Bread knife, a 8 inch Carving knife, and a pair of really sharp kitchen scissors.

The micro-serrated blades never need sharpening and  resist corrosion. They are  super sharp and perfect to cut all kinds of food.

These knives are easy to care for, they are dishwasher safe but hand washing is recommended for the best care.

I really like the handles on these knives. They are ergonomically deisgned and fit nicely in my hand for a good grip and excellent balance that makes cutting and chopping so much easier.

All of these knives store safely in the wooden knife block. I keep them on my counter next to my stove so they are handy and always withing my reach. Plus this set comes with a knife sharpener, these knives don't need sharpening often, they come super sharp.

Double Chin Reducer Neck Line Face Lift Slim Vela Contour (Cream + Masks






Are you unsatisfied with your jawline and neck? Do you feel like it's sagging when you look in the mirror? Yeah, me too. I'm in my mis 50s and gravity is taking it's toll on my face (and everything else). I'm trying to fight back with healthy diet, drinking a lot of water, etc. My jawline and neck aren't cooperating with my anti-aging tactics so far so I decided to try Vela Contour Cream and Masks.

I can say I saw and felt results immediately. My skin felt firmer and tighter, looked younger! I'm sure with extended use I'll see even more results. I love finding products that do what they say they will. I'm looking forward to shaving a few years off of my appearance. It would be so nice to have my outward appearance fit the age I feel inside.

Over a decade of research and technology is behind  this product. It contains 5 peptides to make your skin firmer and more youthful from the inside. I like knowing t hat so much researc has gone into something I'm using.

BODYMATE Compression Brace for Hip, Sciatica Nerve Pain Relief







Do you suffer from sciatica, hip pain, pulled hamstring? I have a lot of sciatic nerve pain that runs down my right leg. At times it's nearly unbearable. Mine is the result of a serious car accident that I was in about 8 months ago. I suffered  broken L5, 9 broken ribs, broken right knee , and broken left forearm and wrist. Needless to say it's been a long road of recovery.

When I broke L5 in my spine, L4 slid and is putting pressure on my sciatic nerve which causes a lot of pain in my lower back and also a hot pain that runs down my right leg. Some days it's almost too much to take. I wore a lumbar brace for quite a while, but it was big and bulky and very uncomfortable. It came up too high and made my ribs hurt worse. so I have been looking for some kind of brace that would give me the support I need but was comfortable to wear. I found it in the BODYMATE Compression Brace.

This brace is adustable( fits up to 46" hip) and can be worn on either leg. Lightweight,  it's not heavy  like the heavy lumbar brace I was wearing. It lends the right amount of support where I need it. It really makes a difference for me.

Made from breathable neoprene, this brace keeps you cool and comfortable, even in the heat we've been having where I live.

The special design of this brace helps with faster recovery with groin, quad, hip. hamstring, sciatica injury . It increases blood flow and reduces  recovery time by providing  soothing compression relief to pain.
