NASA | 3D Printed Food

NASA secures funding to start R&D…

The thought of what this technology could mean is mind blowing…”End of World Hunger perhaps?”, the end of ” FedEx?

What new marketing schemes are on the horizon?

  • Imagine mailing out an electric car to test drive…Will FedEx turn it’s business model?
  • Imagine what the fast food industry thinks of this technology, assuming McDonald’s owns the rights to the “Big Mac”…will they release the rights, so the world can enjoy a 3D Big Mac!
  • What else will this technology produce…Weapons, Houses, People and maybe Dreams?
  • What will Grocery Stores become?

NASA is approving this technology for the quest to go to Mars! Being able to print food on demand, will allow for storage, on these long trips, for things other than food.

Question: Will the Internet of the future be the same as it is now?

Have you ever thought about writing a blog and did not know where to start? You can allow someone to write for you or can also sell subscriptions to allow guest bloggers to post on your site.

Guest blogging is a great way to build and develop content. Using the SEO functions of wordpress categories and post tags will help elevate your internet marketing. Giving you a really good website to start link exchanges, possibly use as an e-commerce tool and to run along side of existing websites and/or a facebook page.

Since the SEO landscape is always changing, it is smart business to keep evolving as well. Now that websites have moved from a static marketing piece, to a dynamic presentation and now to a mobile campaign…it is important to keep moving forward!

We are in the age of minute man advertising. With Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, etc…we look for dynamic content to come to us. Having a blog for your business is not only SMART business, but it is becoming truly necessary.

From a marketing standpoint, sending out current content is great SEO as well…keywords as titles, categories, post types and tags, will ensure you a first page position with GOOGLE!
