Marketing

Great marketing goes beyond traditional marketing strategies. We’re entering a whole new era of online and offline marketing that allow you to market one-to-many for the best results. You don’t need expensive marketing resources to produce great results –

here’s where you can get creative and have fun! Here are 10 No-Cost and Low-Cost Ways to Market Your Businesses.


Tip #1: Reach Out To Strategic Partners
Strategic Partners are a complement (not competition) to your business (as your business is to theirs). Provide an Ideal Client Description and ask if they know someone who is an ideal fit. If they do know someone who would benefit from working with you, ask them to pass along your contact information to the prospect. (Asking for the prospect’s contact information – and contacting them directly – may not always be appropriate. Follow the Strategic Partner’s client privacy policy before contacting the prospect.) Last but not least – return the favor.


Tip #2: Develop Joint-Venture Projects
Joint-Ventures are gaining popularity as we find (in a challenging economy) it’s not only more effective, but sometimes necessary, to pool resources together. This marketing strategy accomplishes two goals: 1) Gets your business in front of a new market and

2) Allows opportunities for new or creative products or services you may have previously been unable to provide. *Choose Joint-Venture Partners wisely… once a partnership is formed, reputations will inevitably be tied to one another.


Tip #3: Build a Community
The power of the community deeply serves us, as we continue to recover from economic hardship. Create an in-person or virtual community where like-minded business owners can meet once a week to discuss marketing strategies that work or brainstorm new and innovative ways to attract ideal clients. Use your business brand or personal philosophy as an anchor to the community and you’ll be providing what no one else can.


Tip #4: Update Client Success Stories
You may have client testimonials, but do you have updated their success stories? Contact clients who have worked with you and ask them to provide their latest success story by specifically tying at least one piece of their success to something they learned or were provided by your product, program, or service. The greater the success story – the greater the value that directly ties back to your business. Promote the updated testimonials and remember to put them on your website.


Tip #5: Hold an Open House
In-person networking is powerful! Host a lunch, happy hour or networking meeting at your home or office. Invite a small group of key people who can help you spread the word about an upcoming program/event or time-sensitive promotion. (“Key” people are colleagues, partners, friends, associates who have direct connections to your ideal clients.) You may want to consider asking these key people to bring other people who they think could benefit from your product or services to meet you in person. 


Tip #6: Leverage Your Resources
Every aspect of your business from your voice mail to in-person networking should be highlighting reasons why people should be working with you. Share client success stories and current promotions year-round on/in/at: your website | outgoing voicemail message | email footer | social networking accounts (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) | printed marketing materials | networking events | seminars and live events | business cards | articles | etc.


Tip #6: Leverage The Internet
While in-person networking remains one of the most powerful ways to connect with prospective clients, the leveraging power of the internet is undeniable. Thanks to the internet it is possible for you to transform your marketing plan from a one-to-one approach to one-to-many. Article marketing and social networking are just two powerful examples of how to market one-to-many online.


Tip #8: Blog for Business
A blog is an essential part of your website’s ability to attract and keep the attention of your ideal prospects. Although the intention is to provide valuable information, you’re actually doing much more than that: you’re providing a valuable resource that boosts the Know, Like, Trust Factor of your clients – inspiring them to work with you. Take existing content from articles, podcasts, videos, etc. to create your blog posts. Your assistant can do this for you and post them on a regular basis so you don’t have to spend a lot of time doing it yourself. 


Tip #9: Develop a Cross-Promotion Partnership
Ask for help! Contact associates, colleagues and other high-quality contacts and offer to promote one of their upcoming events or program launches. Be sure their offer is a complement, not competition, to something you currently offer. (Offer a referral fee for added incentive!) Only then, ask them to return the favor, if they haven’t already offered.


Tip #10: Create Consistent Communication
Creating a weekly e-newsletter is one of the easiest methods for creating consistent communication with your sphere of influence. The purpose of weekly communication is to consistently remain in front of your prospects. Provide quality information they will find helpful and useful, while creating an opportunity for your audience to Know-Like-Trust you through short stories, articles of value, interviews with other experts, or mentions of your personal or professional journey.
Review these 10 ideas and choose to implement the ones that will have the biggest impact on you achieving your goals in the shortest time possible. Create a game plan and execute it for even greater success. 


My hope for our time together is that you got value and an idea or two that will help you be even more successful – personally and professionally. If you do get value from my blog share it

How do you know if it’s just an infatuation or love

He saw my pictures on Instagram. We texted for months. He said he loved me. We met. He saw I don’t really look like the photos I’ve uploaded. I have pimples and frizzy hair. I’m short and skinny. After some days, ignorance game was on. He was infatuated towards my beauty.

He was my best friend since years. He saw me in my worst phases in life. He saw me when I was sick as hell. He knew how I looked after getting up in morning before getting a bath. He never said he loved me. Everytime I hugged him, he hugged me tighter. When he looked at me, his eyes sparkled. He loved me.

I was in a relationship. My boyfriend was super happy with me. He would always thank god for giving him such simple yet adorable girlfriend. After some months when we were really comfortable he asked me to get intimate. I said no. He insisted. He pleaded. I still said no. In couple of months, he gave me some stupid reasons and we broke up. He never loved me. He was infatuated towards my body.

There was this guy who said he really loved me. He tried a lot to convince me. At that time I was on a roller coaster ride in my career. When next exams came, he cleared. I failed. And I failed again. He stopped texting me then. He didn’t even ask me how I was doing. Later I came to know, he was trying on some smart girl in his class class. He never loved me. He was infatuated towards my success.

There was another guy who never flirted with me. He always checked on me. When I failed, he called me and we talked for hours. I cried and cried. He motivated me. I said, everyone will leave me now because I’m a failure. He said those who truly love you, will never.

A guy knew me since school days. I was one of the toppers. I was in extra curricular activities too. He was used to seeing me as a leader. After school too, he saw me on stage at times. He saw me in Orientation program too. For him, I was strong , confident and fearless. He proposed to me. After spending some time with me, he realised I’m not at all an extrovert. He realised how vulnerable I am. When he saw me crying, the first thing he said was “I never thought you cry so much.” , “Am I not a human?” I asked. After spending some quality time, he said we have different perception towards life and relationship thing won’t work out between us. I knew the real reason. He never loved me. He was infatuated to my personality attributes which were not one hundred percent real.

There is this guy who knows me from years. We are from different school, college, coaching classes and fields. He never knew how smart I was. He never knew my marks. He never saw me doing something appreciable. We used to meet and most of the times we used to talk about our problems. He knew I was an emotional mess. When I asked him if I was, he said, “ You indeed are. But you are a gorgeous mess.” He loved me.

I can write for hours but the point will be same.

Someone who is infatuated towards you will leave you, once he discovers that you don’t possess something/ quality that he found attractive in you.

Someone who loves you, won’t leave you; unless it’s for your good. He would cross oceans for you, even if you haven’t crossed even puddles for him yet. He will love you in your messy hair, on your sick days, when failure hits you bad; in a nutshell even on your darkest days of life. He would love you for who you are, and not for what you portray to the entire world. He would love all the imperfections in you and would still find you perfect.

P.S. – The guys mentioned in the answer don’t exist. Used an illustration to convey my point.

P.S. 2- I didn’t want to write against men, please don’t misunderstand. Because I’m a girl, the word’s he/him came naturally. The answer applies to all genders.

Thank you. 🙂

Stop running and start doing

So often we know our weaknesses. But we run away from them.

We don’t look at them. We are afraid of an unknown feeling, we are afraid of how it will feel when we stand face to face with our weaknesses. We just keep on running away. But those follow us like a shadow.

The more we run, more afraid we get and more afraid we are, more these shadows become giant size.

What we forget is shadows are real yet we can get rid of them if we just throw light from a different direction.

Today I stopped running. I stood tall and looked at what I was running from. I wrote them on a paper. I was avoiding this since long.

In no time I saw there were solutions for everything. Broadly solutions fall into categories of taking some steps to correct or having an internal talk to accept.

This kind of internal talk will never happen if we keep on running.

Must read if you’re young

Following is a letter to his daughter from a renowned Hong Kong TV broadcaster and Child Psychologist.
The words are actually applicable to all of us, young or old, children or parents.!
This applies to all sons & daughters too.
All parents can use this in their teachings to their children.

Dear Children,

I am writing this to you because of 3 reasons

*A).* Life, fortune and mishaps are unpredictable, nobody knows how long he lives.
*B).* I am your father, and if I don’t tell you these, no one else will.
*C).* Whatever written is my own personal bitter experiences that perhaps could save you a lot of unnecessary heartaches.

*Remember the following as you go through life*

*1.* Do not bear grudge towards those who are not good to you. No one has the responsibility of treating you well, except your mother and I.
To those who are good to you, you have to treasure it and be thankful, and ALSO you have to be cautious, because, everyone has a motive for every move. When a person is good to you, it does not mean he really will be good to you. You have to be careful, don’t hastily regard him as a real friend.

*2.* No one is indispensable, nothing is in the world that you must possess.
Once you understand this idea, it would be easier for you to go through life when people around you don’t want you anymore, or when you lose what you wanted the most.

*3.* Life is short.
When you waste your life today, tomorrow you would find that life is leaving you. The earlier you treasure your life, the better you enjoy life.

*4.* Love is nothing but a transient feeling, and this feeling would fade with time and with one’s mood. If your so called loved one leaves you, be patient, time will wash away your aches and sadness.
Don’t over exaggerate the beauty and sweetness of love, and don’t over exaggerate the sadness of falling out of love.

*5.* A lot of successful people did not receive a good education, that does not mean that you can be successful by not studying hard! Whatever knowledge you gain is your weapon in life.
One can go from rags to riches, but one has to start from some rags!

*6.* I do not expect you to financially support me when I am old, neither would I financially support your whole life. My responsibility as a supporter ends when you are grown up. After that, you decide whether you want to travel in a public transport or in your limousine, whether rich or poor.

*7.* You honour your words, but don’t expect others to be so. You can be good to people, but don’t expect people to be good to you. If you don’t understand this, you would end up with unnecessary troubles.

*8.* I have bought lotteries for umpteen years, but could never strike any prize. That shows if you want to be rich, you have to work hard! There is no free lunch!

*9.* No matter how much time I have with you, let’s treasure the time we have together. We do not know if we would meet again in our next life.

*Your Parents*

Read it twice
Ask your son and daughter to read it thrice.

Burning ship’s

This week I read this excerpt from Napoleon Hill’s classic one of my favourite , Think and Grow Rich.

“A long while ago, a great warrior faced a situation which made it necessary for him to make a decision which insured his success on the battlefield. He was about to send his armies against a powerful foe, whose men outnumbered his own. He loaded his soldiers into boats, sailed to the enemy’s country, unloaded soldiers and equipment, then gave the order to burn the ships that had carried them.Addressing the men before the first battle, he said, “You see the boats going up in smoke. That means that we cannot leave these shores unless we win! We now have no choice—we win—or we perish!”

They won.  Every person who wins in any undertaking must be willing to burn ships.  The word ‘decide’ means to ‘cut away from’.  When we make a clear decision for what we really want in our life, often it requires that we ‘cut away from’ anything that is unlike that clear choice.  Sometimes this cutting away is painful, especially when it involves cutting away from people or communities we have loved.  But if we are to move into the next phase of our evolution, the next turn of the spiral, we must realize that not everything in our life right now can come with us.  If we are to succeed in our own becoming, we must be willing to release, to cut away from, to burn anything that is unlike that which we are choosing.  This is the hard but necessary part of change.  What is your vision for yourself?  What do you need to release, cut away from, burn, in order to support the manifestation of that vision?

SEVEN THINGS THAT AFFECT YOUR VIBRATORY FREQUENCY FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF QUANTUM PHYSICS.

IMG_20181123_152825

 

Vibration in quantum physics means that everything is energy. We are beings that vibrate at certain frequencies. Each vibration is equivalent to a feeling and in the “vibrational” world, there are only two types of vibrations, the positive and the negative. Any feeling causes you to emit a vibration that can be positive or negative.

1st.- THE THOUGHTS🤔
Every thought emits a frequency towards the Universe and that frequency returns towards the origin, then in the case, if you have negative thoughts, of discouragement, sadness, anger, fear, all of that turns towards you. That is why it is so important that you take care of the quality of your thoughts and learn to cultivate more positive thoughts.

2nd – THE COMPANY We have..👨‍👨‍👧‍👦👨‍👨‍👦‍👦
The people around you directly influence your vibrational frequency. If you surround yourself with happy, positive, determined people, you will also enter into that vibration, now if you surround yourself with complaining, cursing and pessimistic people, be careful! Well, they may be decreasing your frequency and as a consequence preventing you from making the Law of Attraction work in your favor.

3rd – THE MUSIC🎵🎶
The music is very powerful. If you only listen to music that speaks of death, betrayal, sadness, abandonment, all that will interfere in what you vibrate. Pay attention to the lyrics of the music you listen to, it may be decreasing your vibrational frequency. And remember: You draw into your life exactly what you vibrate.

4th – THE THINGS YOU SEE🧐😳
When you watch programs that deal with misfortune, death, betrayal, etc. your brain accepts that as a reality and releases a whole chemistry in your body, causing your vibrational frequency to be affected. See things that do you good and help you vibrate at a higher frequency.

5th – THE ENVIRONMENT (Space..House and Workplace.)🏬🏩🏠
Whether at home or at work, if you spend much of your time in a disorganized and dirty environment, this will also affect your vibrational frequency. Improve what is around you, organize and clean your environment. Show the Universe that you are apt to receive much more. Take care of what you already have.

6th – THE WORD🤫
If you tend to complain or speak badly about things and people, this affects your vibrational frequency. To maintain your high frequency it is essential that you eliminate the habit of complaining and speaking badly about others. Then avoid making dramas and victimize yourself. Take responsibility for the choices of your life.

7 – THE GRATITUDE🙏🏻🙏🏻
Gratitude positively affects your vibrational frequency. That is a habit that you should incorporate right now into your life. Start to thank for everything, for the good things and those that you consider not good, thanks for all the experiences that you have lived. Gratitude opens the doors for good things to flow positively in your life. 🌍🌈💐

Sunday brunch

This sunday  I watched a movie called FORREST GUMP  , many friends recommended me to watch

So here is my life lessons from the movie

1) Don’t ever let anyone tell you they’re better than you 

2) Do what you love 

Live your life how you want to. Participate in activities simply because you want to , not everything has to have a deeper meaning – but when you start doing what you love . It will develop a deeper meaning on its own .

3) Don’t be afraid to be honest 

forrest always blurts out everything that’s on his mind and it’s crack everyone up – or helps them realise something huge about themselves

4) Don’t be afraid to love

5) always try new things , because you might be great at them 

Thanks

PS: if you like let me know every week I read a new book or watch a inspirational movie and Taking notes , so if you like it will send you .
