The basics of gated and ungated content

Gated content is when we ask a visitor for something, like an email address or to fill a form, before allowing access to certain content. You will come across this all over the web, with lots of content behind walls of some form. The gated content is easy to identify, with a button that says “Download Now” or something similar. According to Starfleet Media, respondents to a survey said that they keep 80% of their content gated. The question is, should content be gated?

Supporters of gated content say that it helps generate sales leads, reflects the value of the content and filters out those who are just browsing. This is a common argument many make against people’s expectation that everything on the internet should come free.

There are those that do not think any content should be gated. They reason that by doing you build trust with prospects and viewers, remove road blocks for consumers and as a side effect will improve SEO.

Then there is the question of what should and should not be gated. Examples of content that could and should be gated are: webinars, demos, live content, white papers, downloadable books, quotes, newsletters, etc. On the other hand content like blogs, videos, podcasts, tips, infographics and archives.

Ultimately, the decision of what to gate and when will depend on the vertical, the content in question and the marketing plan. Regardless, it is a tool that can and should be used to further market the brand.

Batch freezer – This stage involves the mixture turning from liquid to solid. The freezer will blend the mixture pushing air through it. The process will make the gelato consistent and creamy.

Blast chillers – It is important to follow batch freezing with blast chilling to freeze the product. A good quality blast chiller should reach temperatures as low as -35°C.

Making, storing and presenting gelato –Once the gelato is made it should be kept in refrigerators. There are two main methods of storage, and they are cabinets and counters (tub units and showcases).

Refrigerator cabinets – A good refrigerator should be set to above or below zero temperature, depending on the temperature outside and the amount of stock inside.

Production of yogurt

Written by Gelato Products

Yogurt is made using fermented milk created by the lactic acid bacteria, which often is lactobacillus bulgarius and Streptococcus thermophilus.

To make sure that yogurt is safe to eat, the milk is heat treated, homogenized and then cooled. As the milk cools, a bacteria or starter culture is added. If the right temperature and moisture are provided, the fermented milk produces lactic acid. After which the milk ferments and sets to form yogurt. As the milk ferments, it forms a colorless liquid, called acetaldehyde, which gives yogurt its distinctive taste.

To form yogurt, manufacturers use different types of milk from skimmed, semi-skimmed, whole, evaporated or powdered forms.

Apart from these varieties, yogurt now comes in a variety of textures from smooth to set and luxury to fat-free. Manufacturers have also added flavors like natural, fruit, cereal and created frozen yogurt cups, which compete with ice cream on the supermarket shelves.

There are also other fermenting yogurts with different microorganisms, that provide good bacteria for your gut. These include live yogurts, which have live harmless bacteria and probiotic yogurts, which contain live probiotic microorganisms.

Scientists now say that yogurt is a great way to include calcium and maintain a healthy weight. In addition, yogurt’s bacteria can help to ease stomach indigestion and to promote a healthy digestive tract. Therefore, pick up a white paper cup of this healthy, tasty, super food and make it part of your daily meal plan.

3One primary concern for candidates that are about to undergo some form of background checks is mistakes from the past. For a lot of people, one mistake in their past should not affect their employability in the present. Fortunately there are limits to what information is available about someone after a certain period of time.

The first limit is from the The federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, which sets national standards for background checks. These background checks are called a consumer report and have the same disclosure standards set for credit checks. Here are the limits for the following:

Bankruptcies after 10 years.
Civil suits, civil judgments, and records of arrest, from date of entry, after seven years.
Paid tax liens after seven years.
Accounts placed for collection after seven years.
