iBuyFans.com Introduces USA Facebook Likes

Companies can now purchase Facebook fans living in the United States; increasing page likes and brand social media authority

Amsterdam (2/5/2016)—It’s estimated that Facebook has one billion users. That is no small feat, and businesses are taking notice when it comes to creating social media marketing strategies. Now, iBuyfans.com is offering these businesses an instant audience to market to, promising to deliver U.S.-based Facebook fans to buyers in a quick and inexpensive manner.

 “Purchasing Facebook likes not only gives you a broader audience to market to, it also increases your brand’s social media authority,” said Nick Pietersz, CEO of iBuyFans.com. “When people see that a Facebook page has a lot of fans, they naturally trust it more, and are subsequently more likely to “like” it, which only helps you build your network of fans faster.”

 iBuyFans.com’s USA Facebook Page Likes packages start at 500 likes for just $50 and allows social media managers to purchase up to 100,000 page likes at one time. These packages are available for purchase at ibuyfans.com/facebook.

 The company offers fan packages for other social media networks as well, including Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus and LinkedIn. Social media managers can also buy likes for Facebook wall posts, which gives shared content a much-needed boost if the marketing goal is to help it go viral.

 “Waiting for content to garner likes organically can take a long time, which can stunt your social media marketing campaign,” said Pietersz. “You want to get your content in front of as many eyes as possible so you can get the highest return on investment. Buying Facebook likes will help you do that.”

iBuyFans.com guarantees that all the likes they sell are 100 percent real and not performed by an automated system. In addition to its USA Facebook Page Likes service, the company also has a Worldwide Facebook Likes package that starts at 100 likes for $4.

Social media managers interested in getting more information about iBuyFans.com can do so by visiting the company’s website at ibuyfans.com.

To see all winners, check out our full list of Tour of the Year Award winners. This one of a kind award is unique and valuable to anyone planning their next journey, as the winners are based on the opinion of real travellers rather than a set group.

This year’s Guide of the Year Award winner is Harry Bradbury from TruTravels.

Pets of the Homeless Receives a Record $52,000 in Donations

Contributions will assist with pet food, emergency vet care, wellness clinics and sleeping crates

(Carson City, NV) – Pets of the Homeless, the only national nonprofit organization that is focused on feeding and providing emergency veterinary care to pets of homeless people, has received over $52,000 from a number of foundations in 2015. The donations will go a long way to provide pet food, emergency veterinary care and wellness clinics for pets of the homeless as well as sleeping crates to homeless shelters across the United States and Canada.

Genevieve Frederick, founder of Pets of the Homeless said, “The many Foundations that contributed during 2015 showed their compassion and generosity with their gifts. These contributions will go on to help companion pets of the homeless everywhere. Our sincere appreciation goes out to all who donate to make sure no pet is hungry or in pain.”

The contributing foundations are: Animal Farm Foundation, Inc.; Brindisi Animal Foundation, Inc.; Bryce Family Foundation; Creag Foundation; DJ & T Foundation; Engelstad Family Foundation; Fatta Foundation; Fleming Foundation; Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation; The K Foundation; David E. and Morgan S. Kaufman Foundation; The Carol and Maril Malkmus Foundation, Inc.; Nonemaker Foundation; On Shore Foundation, Inc.; Petco Foundation; Ray Rowe Trusts for Animals; The Si Redd & Tamara Redd Charitable Foundation; Save Our Strays, Inc.; Sidney Stern Memorial Trust; The Trico Foundation; and The WHC Foundation.

Frederick describes a recent case scenario of how the contributions benefit pets of the homeless. She said, “A victim of domestic violence called us for help. She had been living in a car for two months with three dogs at a Walmart parking lot. They were two Chihuahuas and a Chow Chow mix. The owner planed to leave the area but she couldn’t because the Chow was in pain with an injured leg and the others had swollen anal sacs. She wanted them to be well before traveling. Pets of the Homeless paid for all three to have exams and treatment as well as updated their vaccinations.”

More than 12,800 pets have been medically treated through the assistance of Pets of the Homeless, and 400 tons of pet food collected. There are more than 375 donation and collection sites nationwide. Pets of the Homeless has also provided over $330,000 in veterinary care. To donate to Pets of the Homeless, visit www.petsofthehomeless.org, or for more information on the organization, review the 2015 Annual Report.

Pursuing Dreams: Belong Designs Founders Quit their 9-5pm Jobs

Denver, CO February 4th, 2016:  Starting from humble beginnings, 3 best friends, college roomates, of Belong Designs started the company in 2013 with 40 T-shirts at the Colorado School of Mines during their senior year of a Mechanical Engineering Curriculum. Now they have grown into one of Colorado’s premier lifestyle apparel brands with an affluent local following that is quickly branching outside Colorado.

The 3 Founders, Shamus McNutt, Ben Thomson, and Mark Grubbs, attribute much of their early success to friends, family, their 30+ athletes that they sponsor, and their incredible fans that continually support through social media and as return customers. The company was able to hit the $100K eCommerce sales mark during their very first full fiscal year in 2014. They plan to really make a huge push into the wholesale/retail market after discovering how well their brand pushed online.

As of January 18th, 2016, the three founders quit their day jobs as Project Managers for a Construction/Engineering Firm and have transitioned to full time roles with Belong Designs. “It has been a terrifying, amazing, whirlwind of an experience transitioning from the 9-5pm job to working everyday with your two best friends, working from 7am-8pm doing what you love and fighting for your well being”, said Shamus. “Its been incredible to see how fast time flies when you’re doing what you love and feel passionate about. Its as if there are not enough hours in the day! I wake up itching to work at our dream and stay up in bed thinking about how awesome the previous day was, anxiously waiting to see what tomorrow holds”. Belong currently has 3 employees/interns working for them beyond the founders. These individuals handle some marketing, media, and some clothing design. “We will be looking to hire on many more creative, web developers, engineers, and business related individuals”, Mark Grubbs, Creative Director, explained.  Looking into the future, Belong plans to open an office in Denver in 2-3 months and a storefront in RiNo, LoDo, Golden, or Boulder in 6months.

Belong Designs was founded on the fundamental, yet simple mission that when you follow your passions in life, you realize where you Belong! This single statement was the first idea put to paper prior to the logos, prior to the shirt designs, even prior to the business plans. “If you don’t have a mission that you full-heartedly back/feel passionate about, you will not be able to make it through the sleepless nights of work, followed by the days of generating relationships”, said Ben Thomson. “My biggest piece of advice to any entrepreneur that is starting up a business is to follow what you feel passionate about. If you follow only the money, you’ll lose interest/hate your job quickly. Do what you love and the success and money will follow”.

Iconic Hotel in Mexico’s Crown Jewel is For Sale

Strategically situated on one of the best surf breaks in the Southern Baja, Hacienda Cerritos sits atop a rock formation jutting out into the rhythmic waves of the Pacific Ocean below. The lookout tower, in the center of the property, has 360-degree vistas looking north, south and seaside, as well as the inland mountains, which act as a scenic backdrop to the exquisite Spanish estate. Adorned with authentic and rustic-wooden Spanish furnishings, the luxury boutique hotel has been an icon since its inception in 2010.

It’s location acts as both an escape from the electric-Cabo San Lucas, while also a much-appreciated midway point for adventurers traveling through to Todos Santos, the Capital city of La Paz or up the Baja.


The town of Pescadero is known for it’s rich agriculture, artisan array of local goods and beach enthusiasts from around the globe. The area has seen steady growth from locals, ex-pats, luxury condominium developers and international hotel operators. In the last couple of years, Pescadero has had an infusion of farm-to-table restaurants, organic markets and extreme sport activity operators who have moved in to meet the area’s demand.


Property’s Unique Highlights

Contest will award winning entrant financial freedom via ownership of The Deerfield Valley Inn, a $600,000 country inn property in the Mount Snow area of southern Vermont.

WEST DOVER, VT (November 2015) – The owners of the Deerfield Valley Inn (DVI) have announced an essay contest to award full ownership, free and clear, of the inn to the winning entrant. Entrants will submit an essay on the subject: “This is my dream: To own a Vermont country inn property”. While the property has operated as a country inn for more than 60 years, the contest rules do not require the new owner to operate as an inn.

After more than 17 years of ownership, the owners have decided to use the growing popularity of the “Essay Contest” to find the next owner of the DVI. The winning contestant will be awarded the $600,000 property and the keys to their financial future. Doreen Cooney, owner, observed: “While a great many people are interested in the B & B lifestyle, many have difficulty financing their dream.

The essay contest allows dreamers to realize their dreams, and the winner of the contest would win the Inn for what amounts to the price of an overnight stay or dinner for two”.

The Deerfield Valley Inn is a beautiful 9 room country inn, with licensed restaurant, located 2 miles from Mount Snow Ski Resort in southern Vermont. The Inn was built in 1885 as a private residence and is on the National Register of Historic Places. It has operated continuously as an inn for over 60 years, welcoming guests to the Mount Snow Valley, a four season resort area in the Green Mountains of southern Vermont, midway between Bennington and Brattleboro.

Essays should be 250 words, or less, and may be submitted by mail or online, accompanied by an entry fee of $150. Contest rules and submission information are available online at www.deerfieldvalleyinn.com. Submission deadline is on or before February 29th, 2016.

The Book by Manfred Popp about Weight Loss and Good Fitness Can Improve Your Health

Manfred Popp published the book “You can do what I did: lose weight, improve your health, stay fit!”

The author explains, on the basis of his own experiences, as it is possible, in the long run, to reduce the weight significantly and thereby lower blood pressure and improve health.

This new book offers you a practical step-by-step guide to improve your health and fitness.

Shortly thereafter the author Manfred Popp has retired with 64 years, he visited the doctor to perform a health check and it turned out that his blood pressure was clearly too high. His doctor said that either he has to take pills for the rest of his life or his excessive weight has to be reduced by at least 33 pounds. He bought the tablets and his wife read to him at lunch with emphatic clarity the long list of side effects. It became vividly clear that he had to make a fundamental decision:

The author chose the weight loss. By following the diet and training plan developed by him, he managed to reduce his weight by about 44 pounds. His goal was not only to achieve this weight loss, but the real challenge was to keep the lower weight in the long run. Therefore, his action strategy did not include a crash diet. He was aware that this could mean nothing more than changing his lifestyle with the goal to maintain a lower weight in the long term.

Over a period of over ten years, from an age of 64 up to over 74, the author practiced the guidelines published in the book himself. Now, he benefits from the impressing results:

– He has lost approximately 45 pounds.

– The upper blood pressure remains stable in the “healthy” range.

– The lower blood pressure also moves in the “healthy” range.

– The pulse rate has leveled in an optimal range.

– His general health condition has improved significantly.

– His physical condition is much better than before.

The key to success was an increased, but still reasonable, physical exercise combined with a healthy diet. After nine years, the health of the author improved significantly – without any additional medication.

In sum the author is convinced that his program also works for other “best agers” as well as for younger peoples.

Since friends insisted several times to learn about the secrets of his success, he decided about 5 years ago to write his first book in German. (More information you can find on the author’s German Website http://www.buch-abnehmen-popp.de/)

Two years later, an extended revision of the German book about weight loss and fitness was published.

In the age of over 73, he released his first English-language book titled:

You can do what I did: lose weight, improve your health, stay fit!

On AMAZON, the title is available as eBook or as printed book. See this Book on Amazon.

This book can really help to change your health and thus your future live!
