In a market dominated by Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, and other large conglomerates with an endless supply of money for advertising, small business owners are turning to social media to reach new customers, keep engagement, and add that very important element of a personal touch.

Statistics show that 88% of U.S companies are using social media for marketing and 90% of them say their efforts have increased exposure for their business.

Vacations are all about adventure and fun but before you venture out, make certain your home is protected.  You want to subscribe to the “better safe than sorry” philosophy and take out the time to review your checklist before you head out the door. Being extra vigilant will help keep your belongings and your home safer while you are gone.


Here are 10 ways to help you keep your home safer while on vacation.


Consider hiring a house or pet sitter

The best way to keep your house safe while you are gone is to have a trustworthy person staying in it.  If you have a relative willing to stay in your home while you are gone, that would be great.  If not, there are pet-sitting and house-sitting services available. Although this option can be on the pricier side, it really covers all bases.  


Put your mail on hold

If you plan on leaving your house empty for more than a couple of days, you should consider stopping delivery of your mail.  You can call your local post office and they can hold it anywhere from 3 to 30 days free of charge. In some areas you may be able to go online and do this.

Apply cooking spray to your lawn mower

Take a break from painting

Before you begin painting, glue a magnet to the paintbrush.  When you take a break, place the paintbrush to the inside edge of the paint can. Any paint will drip into the can and not on the floor.
