Maine Guides: Nature’s Concierge, Summer 2016. Tim King

By Tim King


When most people think about the type of services that a Guide might provide, the first thing that comes to mind is their ability to lead hunters and fisherman to “secret” spots where the fish are always biting and the game is always abundant.

While many Maine Guides provide these types of services, many Guides are also well qualified and quite content to lead outdoor expeditions where the only shooting is done with a camera and the only rods are found in a bag of pretzels.

A Closed-Loop Carwash? Yup. Check out Who’s Making Recycled Water That’s Clean Enough for a Spot Free Rinse.

Here’s another press release I wrote for one company that’s making it easier for many of us to go to a commercial car wash and leave with both a clean car and clean conscious…knowing that it used “less” water than it would have taken if we were to wash our vehicle at home. Good stuff, and car washes aren’t the only businesses that could benefit from these types of water reclamation systems. Schools, hospitals, manufacturing plants…

A Closed-Loop Water Resource: Now Open for Business

“Together, the Aqua Bio Technologies solution creates the first truly closed-loop biologic water restoration system for vehicle wash businesses. The additional capabilities of the Bio Softreat system allows car wash operators to create a continuously regenerating source of clean, spot-free-rinse quality water – without the expense of adding new water into the system or disposing of wastewater through the municipal sewer system.”


Nature’s Concierge. Seeing Maine in a whole new way…through the eyes of a Guide.

For this article, I interviewed several Registered Maine Guides who described some of the many benefits of exploring the outdoors with the “eyes of someone who knows what both of you are looking at.”

Brought to you by The SunriseGuide, the Green & Healthy Maine Visitor’s Guide is unlike any other tourist guide on the shelves

This was a lot of fun to write and I hope it shines new light on the idea that Registered Guides are more than just a great resource for hunting and fishing trips.

Check out the story below and you’ll “see” what I mean.

75 Content Marketing Tools You Can’t Live Without


OK, so I generally dislike “Top XYZ” articles of any kind…primarily on principle rather than because of what they may or may not offer in terms of information. My nonconformist tendencies make it very difficult for me to get excited by any writing that limits its scope right from the start.

I know it’s a “Best Practice” and all that, I just think it limits creativity and I find myself always looking for the illusive Tip #6, #11 etc. that (I imagine) has been relegated to the cutting room floor. “The one tip that we didn’t want you to know about.” suggests my conspiracy theoried brain.

However, I will say that this recent post struck me as being different.

“75 Tools” ?? I mean, that’s got to be just about EVERYTHING that I’d want to consider using to be more creative and productive at the same time. THAT my friends is the Holy Grail of content marketing, right?

So give this list a looksee. I’m sure you’ll find something cool and new to add to your tool belt. I’m planning to basically bookmark everyone of these sites so I can call them up the next time I’m stuck or wondering “how can I do what i need to do, faster…so I can do more of the other stuff too.”



Are you seeking ways to take your content marketing strategy to the next level? There are thousands of tactics to consider, but you have a limited supply of amount of time…

Coffitivity – Just like being there…if everyone there was invisible.

I just found out about Coffitivity. It’s exactly what I need to keep myself motivated and focused while working alone at my home office. As long as I don’t find myself eventually recognizing – or talking back to – the voices coming out of my speakers, I think this will be a great alternative for me when music is “too much” and silence is “too little”.



Recently, I spent some time Up on the Roof…

Well, at least I did in my mind. Here’s a series of blog articles I wrote for a client that helps keep things safe and secure up there. So the rest of us can do what we need to do inside, without giving it a second thought. There’s a lot more going on up there than many of us think.
