The Power Of Referrals

In this day and age, consumers are constantly bombarded with advertisements in the streets, on television, and on their smartphones too. Businesses understand it is becoming increasingly difficult to capture the attention of consumers and build trust through mass emails and cold-calls.

Thankfully, there is a way to combat the struggle of gaining consumers’ trust without breaking the bank: a referral program.

Twitter Changes!

I’m sure you’ve seen something about all the changes Twitter announced this week. If you were lucky enough to be unplugged then, know the world has changed. Twitter is changing a few rules in the coming months. The 140 character rule that originated so tweets could be text messages, is just one of them. Anyone that spends their time trying to fit everything in 140 characters with a link, an image, and appropriate hashtags, is going to appreciate the 140 character loophole.

People often ask me how do I do it. I travel continuously and I have done this for many years, and I do it without blinking an eye lid. Booking my next flight is just part of the parcel of having a job that takes me across three continents.

From falling, we remember how to pick ourselves up and keep on walking. In life, we are a bunch of complex creatures, and whether we admit it to ourselves or not, we have many ups and downs on our road to our next destination and beyond.I've had a pretty amazing life. I know that I have been privileged in so many ways; phenomenal family, great loyal long term friends, new friends and great loves. In many ways, I was prized with a place on the podium.

But with that comes a lot of 'stuff' and not all of it is great. As a child I remember being a bit of a silent dreamer. You know the one who never really tells anyone what their dreams are, and keeps them all to themselves. I had good friends then, and many are still the same friends that I have now. They have seen me evolve from a shy child, to an adult comfortable in her own skin.

I've failed more times than I can remember.

Stay Out Of The SPAM Folder!

So you are planning on sending out an email campaign. You have been very focused on writing your copy, creating the perfect design and you are finally satisfied that it will receive an AMAZING click through rate and a TERRIFIC open rate. What if the email never reaches your audience’s inbox? They will never get to see all your beautiful work. :(

We all get spam.

America’s Businesses, Always Changing

The American dream, something the world wants and everyone can have…. or well used to be able to have. Times have changed. Little mom and pop places are being replaced with huge corporate businesses like Walmart and Publix. Even little restaurants are falling behind to the national expansions of places like Chili's and LongHorn. They can still be found though, you might just have to look harder than you imagined.

It’s The Little Things That Matter

In marketing it is the little things that count. Our Founder, Mellissah Smith, constantly reminds the team of the importance of details. In marketing it is all about standing out. Don’t be ordinary, be extraordinary. Market yourself and market your company.

Below are some tips on how to take the extra step as a marketer.

Do you know someone who always has to have the last word in a conversation or an argument? Everyone has come across this type of person and knows how frustrating or plain sad it is when you see it.

Having the last word is closely associated with ego. Egomaniacs always have to have the last word. It gives them a feeling of power, as if they immediate draw all of the power of the person they are communicating with and become powerful due to it.

Who are you? Do you really know? Do you know what you stand for? What do people think of you?

Your personal brand is everything to the people that count, and means nothing to those that don't.

I always wonder why people try to be someone else when their true self is beautiful inside and out. Why some pretend, while other's have a comfort in their own skin that exudes a brand that has connection, meaningfulness, and realism.
