Direct Marketing with Postcards or Sales Letters

A mistake that a lot of online marketers make is ignoring the potential of offline marketing. It used to be that direct mail marketing with postcards or sales letters was the go-to way to market. Then online marketing took off and many businesses left behind offline marketing opportunities - and they're missing out. But even if you decide that you want to use one of these forms of marketing, there can be a debate over which form of advertising is the better one to use. The answer is simple. The one that you choose depends on the business advertising needs. If your pitch is short, you won't need a lot of copy, so using a postcard is feasible and it saves money over sending a sales letter. This is especially true if you use headline marketing. However, some people prefer to get a sales letter because they think it looks nicer. Plus, using a sales letter allows you to add a responder. You can't do that with a postcard. People have become savvier about certain types of …

Finding Positive Role Models For A Better You

Having a positive role model makes a big difference in your general outlook on life. It doesn’t matter who it is, or whether it’s one person or several.

We’ll also tell you what makes a good role model and how they can help you build a successful life.

WHY BEING REALISTIC HOLDS YOU BACK

If you want to be certain that you will never face a challenge or find yourself in a difficult bind, then it is very important to have tame and realistic goals. Goals that you know you can achieve with minimal effort and hardship. However, if you want to have any degree of excitement and experience real growth in your life, then you’re going to have to make plans and set goals that other people will very likely label as unrealistic. These kind of goals often come with a high degree of risk. You rarely know how you are going to achieve them until you get started. And more often than not, the result you achieve will not be exactly what you set out to do in the first place. Many of the famous entertainers, doctors and scientists that we admire in our society today became well known because they achieved unrealistic goals. They had the courage to set the goals and the perseverance to bring them into reality. Unrealistic goal setters tend to be happier, more positive people. The…

How Better Self-Care Can Lead To Success

Self-care is often brushed aside for things seen as more important; business meetings, social commitments, family obligations. While these things are important (and can in some cases contribute to self-care), it is important that we take time to ourselves when we need it. This personal investment will not be for nothing; in fact, self-care is important if we want to optimise our performance in any area of our lives. Taking the time to maintain our physical, emotional and mental health can lead to success in many ways. Helps us to maintain perspective Self-care, regardless of the form, allows us the time to reflect and therefore better understand ourselves as individuals. We are better able to identify our triggers and put things in to perspective, rearranging our priorities to understand what is important and what isn’t. This perspective contributes to a healthier life as we understand where stress is justified and where we should be more relaxed. Helps us to keep positi…

5 Tips For Better Self-Care

It can be difficult to make time for self-care in our busy schedules. We run from one commitment to another, filling every gap in our life with work, study, family and social events. The chaos of modern life makes it even more important that we take the time to care for our individual wellbeing, both physically and mentally. If you are struggling with your own self-care, consider these five tips to improve your habits. 1. Add self-care to your normal routine When planning your weekly schedule, make sure that you have time for self-care. Cementing its place in your routine means that you will be more likely to commit to self-care as you will have allocated time specifically reserved for it. The more often you practice self-care, the more it will become a habit and part of your regular life. 2. Do what suits you Self-care looks for different for everyone. Some people enjoy getting outdoors, others like catching up with friends and some people prefer sitting at home losing the…
