Build.com expands into flooring with launch of FloorMall.com

Chico, Ca (PRWEB) May 08, 2012

The brand that simplified shopping online for plumbing, lighting, door hardware and ventilation is expanding into flooring. The Build.com Network of Stores has added FloorMall.com to its lineup.

As the second-largest online home improvement store, Build.com has historically benefitted from a simplified shopping and buying process for its customers. And adding FloorMall.com to its Network of Stores represents its commitment to further understanding its customers unique needs.

This expansion into home flooring represents another step in creating a complete offering for all of the customers home improvement needs, said Brandon Proctor, Build.coms VP of Marketing.

With its vast selection of home flooring options (laminate flooring, hardwood flooring, bamboo flooring, cork flooring and other materials), FloorMall.com is following the template Build.com created as a one-stop shop for home improvement.

For its expansion into the flooring category, Build.com looked to its category manager of new business, Bob Trafton. Traftons previous new launch (Build.com in April 2010) was the companys most successful ever, and he embraced the idea that flooring can be one of the most important investments for an existing homeowner or someone looking to buy.

If you walk into a home youd like to purchase and you see horrible carpet or torn-up floors, the first thing that comes to mind is flooring, Trafton said. Its the first step in a real home renovation, and something you can build around. Flooring decides wall colors, fixtures, and style for many customers.

And by giving that customer use of various shopping tools, Build.com (through FloorMall.com) has once again simplified a complicated buying processthis time, for flooring. So, whether its laminate or bamboo hardwood flooring or ceramic tile flooring, the exact measurements and cost is clearly seen by the customer.

Wine-Loving Friends Turn Mastermind Group into a Profitable Business Partnership


Northville, MI (PRWEB) December 03, 2012

Three wine-loving friends, each living in different states, have teamed up to create online wine-gift recommendation resources for businesses and individuals shopping for highly-rated wine or wine-themed gifts to send this holiday season.

Tricia Meyer, Eric Nagel and Todd Farmer are co-founders of the “Wine Club Group”, the joint venture that produces their websites, videos and buying guides – all of which revolve around wine club reviews.

The three partners review and rate “wine of the month clubs” (a.k.a. “wine clubs”) and other select wine-related gifts. The products and services they recommend are not produced by the Wine Club Group; rather, they review products from the many companies that market wine clubs, like WSJ Wine Club, Zagat Wine Club and Laithwaites Wine Clubs., among countless others.

“Wine Clubs are a perfect gift to send to wine lovers,” says Farmer. “When someone receives delicious wine over the course of a few months or a year, you are remembered with every delivery. Your gift really stands out. That’s one of the key reasons we chose Wine Club Reviews as our specialty.”

For one full year prior to launching the Wine Club Group, the three friends were informal business advisors to one another, by participating in a self-directed “mastermind group”, where they discussed their own businesses and helped each other achieve individual business goals.

Although each of the three friends have their own unique and different online businesses, the challenges they face are similar in nature. With their varied business experiences, each person in the group brought different perspectives and insights.

By meeting for one hour once a week, the friends were able to advise and assist each other on topics ranging from “identifying business opportunities” to “emergency crisis management”. This support provided positive results for each of their individual businesses.

With the trust gained between the friends from their mastermind group experiences, Nagel initiated a conversation with Meyer and Farmer to explore adding a new dimension to their relationship. He proposed the three consider a joint venture.

Nagel explains, “After a year of getting to know our work ethic, and recognizing our complimentary skill sets, I knew we had to build a site together. I had been contemplating Wine-of-the-Month Clubs as a niche, and since all three of us love wine, I thought that would be a great place for us to start”.

Ironically, this joint-business discussion occurred after the three friends delivered a presentation about their mastermind group, to an audience of online marketing professionals attending Affiliate Summit in January 2012.

“The presentation was extremely well-received and inspired several people in the audience to start their own mastermind groups,” remarks Meyer. “Among all the questions we received during our presentation, most people wanted to know if we were working together on projects or if we had become official business partners.”

She continued, “After a number of these questions, I really wondered why we hadn’t already teamed up!”

Within three months after this presentation, and the ensuing “new joint venture business discussion”, the three online marketing professionals developed a partnership agreement, created their Affiliate Marketing Plan and launched their first website.

Their new joint venture, the Wine Club Group, would focus on helping businesses and individuals find the right wine gift, by reviewing and rating various wine clubs and marking recommendations based on their findings.

Their first wine-gift resource, “Wine Club Reviews And Ratings” found at WineClubReviewsAndRatings.com is home to their full wine club reviews and recommendations, including video reviews and “unboxing videos”.

“We each have different tastes in wine”, says Farmer, “so we each have a different perspective and wine preferences. I strongly prefer Red Wine, while Tricia is slightly partial to White Wine, and Eric will drink pretty-much anything you put in front of him,”

Meyer rebuts, “Come on Todd, you know Eric prefers Pinot Noir. But yeah – he will drink anything.”

Nagel comments, “You guys make me sound like a lush. Just for that, I’m sending Todd a delivery of Reisling”.

The three friends tease and joke with each other quite a bit, as good friends often do. Their personalities and friendship shows through in their writing and in particular, their videos.

But, they do maintain a level of professionalism when it comes to their business. They deliver high quality, unbiased reviews and recommendations of the products they cover. The resulting websites and resources have been considered very helpful to those seeking to find the right wine club to send as a gift, or for themselves.

About the Wine Club Group:

Wine Club Group can be found at http://wineclubgroup.com where wine clubs can initiate a review of their wine clubs and learn about the related costs and additional advertising opportunities.

Some of the Wine Club Group Sites:

Verdant Analysis, Investment Technology Company, Unveils New Application to Export Financial Statements into Excel


Hamilton, Ontario (PRWEB) June 14, 2012

Investment technology company Verdant Analysis announces a new addition to their suite of investment analysis tools. The enhancement is called Fast Exports and it allows users to download multiple financial statements into excel in a matter of seconds.

The whole focus of our company is to help people make better investment decisions by revolutionizing the analysis process, says Jennifer Cameron, co-founder and CEO. It is all about finding meaning in the information that is out there. For example, financial statements have very little merit in a read-only format. You need to be able to manipulate the data, to compare and contrast it. To be useful, they have to be in a spreadsheet. Before today people generally had to do it by hand; a time-consuming, tedious and frustrating process . Now its fast and painless.

The companys core product already allows users to generate financial models and ratios using specific line items, statistical measures and market information.

There was a demand from our users to work with entire statements in excel, says Cameron. And although it was possible to build analysis templates to access the full statements, we designed a much more elegant solution to accomplish this particular task.

In Fast Exports, users can pull the financial statements of any public company in Canada or the U.S. After entering the ticker symbol, choosing any or all of the three financial statements and the time periods, the user clicks a button to generate an excel version.

The company plans to expand their selection of Fast Exports to include suites of commonly used ratios, such as liquidity or profitability ratios, and valuation models such as discounted cash flow.

About Verdant Analysis

Verdant Analysis develops software to help people to achieve investment excellence. Various applications help users create and test their own investment theories and measure their results. The result is improved speed and quality in financial decision making. The companys powerful and intuitive applications are designed to meet the needs, including custom design needs, of serious investors performing robust analysis.

(PRWEB) June 19, 2012

AdoptAShelter.com is pleased to announce that it has added KOHL’S, Overstock.com and Zazzle to it’s cash-rewards shopping mall. Now a portion of every purchase made through AdoptAShelter.com at these fine merchants, as well as over 450 more is donated to animal charities across America.

They are a wonderful addition to our growing list of over 450 top-name merchants, providing another shopping choice for our users. As the economy slows, shoppers will demand more options as they seek out the best values in everything they purchase. At the same time, many smaller shelters and rescue groups are experiencing an increase in demand for their services while receiving less in donations. AdoptAShelter.com is a powerful free and easy fund-raising tool, and regularly adding new merchants makes it even more so. Just Shop to Donate!

AdoptAShelter.com also announces a new and improved Shelter Resources section, designed to help animal charities better promote and utilize this Free & Easy fund-raising website. We want all animal lovers to shop online using AdoptAShelter.com, says Ruben, because the more people shopping means more money to the local shelters and adoption groups who desperately need it. The Shelter Resources section features email and tweet templates as well as a printable flyer that can be handed out at group events and included in adoption kits. Soon it will list What Works, specific examples of organizations who are best utilizing our website.
