The bill is an important statement that is in a printed, written or soft form and is used as a proof of money owed for goods and services. In any business, a bill plays an important role in managing the financial system properly. This piece of paper contains the details of things that you buy, products you sell and services you provide.

Premium Luxury Unique Business Cards

Business cards are very important marketing tools and any serious business should consider creating the most suitable ones for the business. When it comes to the cards, a professional look is what matters most. The best cards are those that are attractive enough to the eyes without necessarily being overly done especially with included text and graphics. But to make luxury premium business cards that are unique, you need to think beyond the name and logo to display. There are so many paper options and printing options you can think along to come up with the most professional and luxury business cards. Below are helpful tips that will make it possible for you to create unique, premium ones.

Tip 1 Choose the best paper stock

The quality usually will depend on the paper stock that you select. Some of the most suitable finishes include silk laminated, suede velvet laminates, gloss or matte laminated and you can also go for uncoated. Each of the paper options comes with pros and cons and it would be very important to consider them before making the final decision for the cards. You should also think about paper thickness in relation to the final card you want.

Tip 2 Consider embossing effect

One of the best ways of making your business cards stand out is by considering embossing for given texts and graphics. Embossing simply produces raised effect on selected areas of the card. A raised and recessed die is used to achieve this effect giving a pattern that is raised against the background. You can use such technique for your logo or business name.

Tip 3 Try out debossing

Instead of raising selected areas like it is the case by embossing, debossing forces paper material down the surface. This means that the debossed pattern or text will be recessed into paper surface giving a pleasant look in the end. It is an effect that best suits thicker paper stocks because of the deeper impressions it offers.

Tip 4 Color or paint card edges

Color edging is not something most people think about when creating business cards yet it is an effect that can make your cards stand out. You can match the edge colors to your brand colors or choose contrasting colors that do not steal the professionalism off the cards. You can create an interesting twist to your business cards by trying metallic colors like copper, silver and gold that have a luxurious feel to them or fluorescent colors that are exciting and fun.

Tip 5 Die cut your business cards

This is another very unique approach to premium business cards. Die cutting is the process where paper stock is cut to specific shapes with the help of a cutting die. Usually the paper will be placed on a flat surface with backing for support and then the desired die is pressed on to cut as desired. If you choose to die cut, ensure you choose shapes that look professionally unique.

Tip 6 - Try Foil stamping

This is probably the most popular finishing for luxury business cards. Foil stamping is application of metallic foil or pigment to paper before a heated die is stamped on making it stick to surface, leaving die design on the paper in elegant metallic finish. You can choose different colors for the stamping.

Crafting a Successful B2B Marketing Strategy

For many B2B marketers, the traditional marketing funnel that motivates prospects to self-identify and then move to a sales funnel, is ingrained in our minds. However, in the Age of the Customer, Forrester Research's phrase for a customer-driven marketing landscape, the funnel has evolved to reflect a new customer expectation requiring sales and marketing to work in tandem.

With this in mind, B2B marketers must evaluate how their current B2B marketing strategy is aligned with the psychology of their buyer journey. In other words, B2B marketers must know how to craft a marketing strategy based on the predominance of the customer.

So, we have outlined a series of steps to follow when crafting a customer-centric B2B marketing strategy. Ask yourself and your team, "have we checked the following boxes when crafting our B2B marketing strategy?"

IDENTIFY TARGET PERSONAS IN YOUR B2B MARKETING STRATEGY

Going through the exercise to develop personas based on market and customer research is fundamental to understanding not only who is your audience but how to engage them in the buyer journey. Incorporating marketing personas makes websites two to five times more effective and easier to use by targeted users. However, only 44% of B2B marketers use buyer personas. So, ensure your B2B marketing strategy includes persona-based experiences that moves buyers forward in their journey with your brand.

MAP A PERSONA-BASED CUSTOMER JOURNEY TO DRIVE YOUR B2B MARKETING STRATEGY

Building out your influencer and decision personas to understand your target audience is only part of the process of laying a customer-centric foundation for your strategy. Next is to map the touch points of your buyer journey through all buyer stages. In order to close the loop from awareness to revenue it's critical to know the touch points along the journey that are motivators and detractors in order to influence all parts of the customer experience. When developing your B2B marketing strategy answer the following, "How do I craft a strategy with the framework that aligns with your customer's journey to gain clarity and define priority?"

DEFINE AND MEASURE B2B MARKETING STRATEGY GOALS & METRICS

Perhaps a no-brainer for a data-driven B2B marketer is clearly-defined metrics for success. With a heightened emphasis on personalization and customer experience (CX), B2B marketing goals and metrics must be established to measure the success of the marketing efforts supporting a customer's progression through the buyer journey. Your B2B marketing strategy must outline how it will create direct contribution to revenue with a return and fuel high growth.
A recent case study example from one of our technology platform and services clients is Viewpointe, a leading private cloud managed services provider. Viewpointe was challenged with continuing to engage customers over the course of a 6+ month sales cycle. After clearly defining their B2B marketing goals, they aligned their content marketing plan with their persona-based customer journey. As a result, Viewpointe stayed engaged with their customers throughout the buyer journey and closed more deals. One way Viewpointe measured customer engagement lift was a 52% increase in persona aligned website content and 164% increase in blog content engagement from organic search referrals.

YOUR B2B MARKETING STRATEGY INCORPORATES ACTIONABLE INSIGHTS WITH SALES

Referring back to our earlier customer funnel illustration, the traditional hand-off from marketing to sales, with no feedback loop when a lead is "flipped over the fence to sales", causing misalignment between B2B marketing and sales teams. In fact, 25% of B2B marketers have no idea what is their customer conversion rate. In the Age of the Customer, your marketing strategy should outline how to rip out the proverbial fence and instead encourage inter-team collaboration. Ensuring this marketing and sales alignment is crucial to creating a consistent customer experience along a buyer's journey. Being intentional about sharing insights between teams is one way to encourage broad acceptance of a successful B2B marketing strategy execution.

YOUR NEXT STEP

With only 45% of B2B marketers confident that they have decent, if not high, levels of customer centricity, the time to is now to author your new B2B marketing strategy that elevates you above your competition.
At Overground, we partner with middle-market and Fortune 500 marketing leaders to ensure their successful customer-centric B2B marketing strategy not only shows direct contribution to revenue but also fuels high growth for their organization. Reach out to us today and take the next step.

Innovating Your Business - The Power of the Brand

Remember back in the 1970's when generic grocery items were all the rage? The packaging was stark white with black lettering revealing the contents of the package. There's a reason generic products went away.
You never see a restaurant simply called "Restaurant" or a hotel just called "Hotel." Yet thousands of donut shop owners across the country have dug deep into their collective creativity... and the best they could come up with for the name of their shops was "DONUTS."

How about coming up with an actual name for a donut shop for starters? And preferably, a name that either suggests an excellent tasting donut or has some sort of local flair. Here's a quick list I came up with:

Killer Donuts - Best Darn Donut Shop - Guaranteed GREAT Donuts - Delightful Donuts - Ohio's Best Donuts

Yes, I know that the sign out front will cost a little more money than the plain vanilla DONUTS one, but remember, we're trying to take down Krispy Kreme! Spend a little extra dough on the sign. For sake of argument, let's call our Donut shop Ohio's Best Donuts. This way we can cater to not just high schools in the area.

Since our theme is Ohio, let's go ahead and decorate the place with some Ohio flair. Decorating advice should be taken from Starbucks, not from the local snow cone shop. Let's get some bright colors that make the place look lively, energetic, and fun. Built in bar-type seating around part of the perimeter of the store would be a nice touch. Make the tables and chairs a bit more substantial. Whatever tables and chairs Starbucks has, buy those. And while you're at it, buy the Starbucks CD collection and play it over built-into-the-ceiling speakers. I know it's just a donut shop, but it's not illegal to give the place some ambiance.
Next, let's hire a graphic designer to create a Ohio's Best Donuts logo and color scheme. This is important because we're going to use the logo and color scheme to actually start to brand our donut shop! Instead of using the generic white box to put the donuts in (or even worse, the generic white box with the word DONUTS and the address stamped on the front), let's instead get boxes printed with the name, logo, and slogan printed on them. Oh yes -- the slogan. How about "Not Just The Best Donuts On 3C Highway -- The Best Donuts In Ohio." Don't you like the not-so-subtle dig on the neighboring giant!?

Next up for branding -- signature donuts. Because we're a local shop, we have lots of flexibility to do whatever we want. For starters, how about a donut that's roughly TWICE as big as normal donuts. Add to that red, white, and blue glaze (or sprinkles) on them in the pattern of the Ohio flag? We could call it the "Ohio Giant" and sell them by the half dozen instead of the dozen because they're so freaking big. Now there's a donut people would go out of their way to buy -- and remember.

Now create signature donuts for each of the local high schools. How about a 'Mighty Comet' in white and green... and a orange and black 'Loveland Tigers donut? They could come in "Ohio Giant" size, regular size, and minis. People would go insane to buy these. School spirit and all that!

Then we could produce special occasion donuts -- Valentine's Day, Thanksgiving, St. Patrick's Day, you name it. Has anyone ever looked into making donuts in the shape of letters? How about this strategy... each day of the month they could create a donut with the letter that corresponds to that day of the month (A=1, B=2, etc.) and anyone who can prove their name starts with that letter can come in for a free letter donut that day only. It's worth a try. And don't tell me it's impossible to make a donut shaped like a letter.

So how much would all this branding cost? Certainly a bit more for the sign and furnishings. The logo wouldn't be too much. And signature donuts? Come on -- they don't cost anything extra. They're still just donuts! But now we have an identity that people would be interested in. People would remember these donuts -- and this donut shop. But we're just getting started.

Increase New Patient Bookings From the Front Desk

How many bookings do you get out of 10 new patient calls? If it's not a high number, chances are these 3 things are keeping you from extra new patients every month, costing you time and money
Chances are, during the month, you've had several calls to your office from prospective new patients that didn't book.

Why is that?

It could be one of these 3 reasons, and when fixed, can lead to extra new patients every month without spending any extra money on marketing.

1. Office staff get too busy and new patients fall through the cracks

Day to day operations of your office are important but if a new patient calls your office and is put on hold for 4 minutes, rushed off the phone, not greeted warmly, well, they aren't going to book. And if they book, they might cancel, having found a more warm office.

2. No training on how to handle new patient calls properly
Since they don't have any training, every time they answer the phone, they are winging it.

Is the staff controlling the call? Are they answering the person's question but not booking them?

Are they being warm and friendly?

Are they establishing a rapport with potential clients?

Is there long awkward pauses?

Are the patients being rushed off the phone?

Does it sound like the staff member is annoyed that someone is interrupting their work?

Are the staff offering up to standard customer service?

Does the office have an established check-in or check-out procedure?

The front desk manager needs to be extra trained to ensure that they know what the expectations are as well as making sure that new patient leads are being handled the best way possible.

Each dental employees should be trained on how to greet and treat patients that are inside the office. They need to be able to efficiently handle patients that have been waiting for a while and how to address any unhappy clients (if there are any).

3. Don't care

Well, if your staff doesn't care about your office, why should your patients?

First step is admitting that this might be happening to you. Next step is fixing it!

One way to get your staff on board and meet their target or weekly or monthly goals is to offer incentives. When you offer incentives, employees are motivated to work towards their goals. It should also be changed up every so often to keep their attention locked in!

Companies even yours will lose prospects if you don't get the attention and traction that you need.

Why Bad Emails Will Hurt Your MLM?

Have you ever received an email from a company and it was just horrible? Did it make you think "what did I do to deserve this?" Do you know you could be sending out emails like this one? Your bad emails could be killing your MLM marketing strategy and business. Email marketing is not easy, it's a difficult process and there are many different areas that will affect the health and effectiveness of your emails.

What is a bad email? A bad email is one that ends up in the spam folder, a loss of a subscriber, overly promotional, too much of nothing, no purpose or goal, bad design, unsegmented and many other factors. So you could technically kill a list of 2000 subscribers in one month, but in a year's time you will lose 23% naturally, even if you do everything OK.

Check the Health of Your MLM Lists

According to Hubspot "Marketing databases decay around 23% a year, every year." This is a natural decay process. Your design, goal, personalization options and many other factors contribute to the health of your email lists. One of the biggest issues is the lack of segmentation based on the prospects cycle. Are they looking for a solution? Maybe they are researching a problem? Maybe they are part of the team, and they want content that helps them get started quickly. There is so much to email marketing, to explain a tenth of it, a book would need to be written.

Bad MLM Email Marketing Design

In email marketing, especially for new MLM people, a bad design will destroy a business. The design process includes the graphic, text, goal, call to action layouts. It's the user experience that you have to create that is the most important. Many times, the first design may not work, so you may feel like your constantly failing. By working on each of the areas carefully, you can build a powerful connection and relation for your audience. This is one of the biggest problems that marketers face across multiply industries, the other is segmentation. Segmentation will be for another day.

Email work up from ground zero

Before you even dare launch your first email, take a look at the individual email from your prospective shoes. Does it make sense? Does it crowd you out, offer a delicious offer or is it bland and full of content with no clear direction? Your MLM campaign didn't start out with promotional stuff, so your email shouldn't either. Education and the right blend of everything else will help you succeed.

Before building up your empire, you should examine yourself for potential faults and gaps in knowledge. More education means you can do more, and less outsourcing but it does eat up more time. Bad personalities don't work well in many industries, what's worse is those who fake good personalities. People can read through them and if they can't right away. They'll be able to find clues that you're not being on the kosher level with them. Fix yourself, first. Get in the right frame of mind. Focus on your audience with all of your efforts. Go and get a certificate in marketing, if you think it will help. Become a life learner and you will find tremendous benefits from it.

Experiment, redesign, explore and get Creative in your MLM Business

In order to have a strong business, you will have to experiment with marketing, redesign your website for best user experience, explore other options and get creative. It sounds like a brain dead serious of steps, but many people skip the need for this process in order to be successful.

You can adjust the process to your needs. Find something that works for you and keep developing new ideas and never stop serving. Don't leave out tips if you know they can help. It can be tempting to leave something out, but it doesn't work that way anymore. Open up your eyes and explore forums to generate new ideas and marketable content. Someone somewhere is always asking a question in order to solve a problem their having. Be the hunter and not the prey. Leadership is not an option, its required to run a good business.

MLM Pros creates and inspires team education

One of the biggest steps that you can take as an MLM pro is to help create educational material that helps your team. You will need to inspire your team to achieve more in their given days. Some of the best teams are well balanced, motivated and educated. What did you have to learn to get your business going forward? You should share your experiences and find resources to help your team. A knowledgeable team will be one that requires less oil, and will achieve results faster than others. Find some courses on marketing, design, writing or whatever you think may be beneficial. In some cases, you can create the courses yourself.

Encourage, reward and Push your MLM Team

Encouragement is a key factor to keeping a team happy. There will be days when something snipes at a particular individual. You can post encouragement on social media, or send a quick message to your team. However, you do it, keep it real and honest. Reward your team after they complete a group goal. It doesn't take much to reward a group. Kind words to free access to training material or whatever.

At times you will need to push your team beyond their normal limits. Especially during slow seasons, it's for their success and not for yours. During these periods, bad habits can quickly set in. So be careful and keep an eye out. During this time, you may want to go over some basics again to make sure everyone is up to par. After that you can move onto individual needs as the slow season moves onward.

Why Do I Choose Home Business?

When I was a little kid, my childhood was filled with fears, uncertainty, disappointment and tears. She wanted to leave, but she couldn't because she doesn't have financial capability to feed her three young children. I saw her hopelessness and what it meant by not having the freedom of choice.

So when I grew up, I made a promise to myself, that regardless of whether or not I have a happy marriage, I must have the financial independence so I can have my freedom of choice. As I saw my dad and his success running his own business, I know that I must have my own business too. There is an old saying that employment keeps people poor, and I believe that.

No matter how big is our paycheck, it would always be living from paycheck to paycheck.

I crave to set my own hours, my own pay.

I want to approve my own leave, create my own future.

One day, my friend shared with me about her part-time home business. I rejected her because I thought its a selling business. But I was interested with the product. As I was desperately aging, I decided to follow her advise to renovate myself inside out. And I'm very grateful that because of her sharing, I got back my health, my confidence and my compliments.

The program works so well that everybody said I look younger and younger. As I was thrilled with the effectiveness of the products, I started to realize there is a huge potential out there, especially now that we have the smart phone and social media.

So I've decided to do the home business for some key reasons:
  • * I like the fact that my home business would allow me to generate recurring income to pay recurring bills.
  • * This business would allow me to work hard for 3 - 10 years and retire at full pay.
  • One quote resonates with me deeply, it said "It's amazing how people think 4 years is a long time to succeed in business but think it's alright to stay broke at a job for 40 years."
  • * Once the business is established, I would be able to spend more time with my family and live life in my own terms.
  • * It is a business that I can pass down to my beloved son.

I know that even if I climbed to the top of the corporate ladder, I wouldn't be able to pass down my seat to my children. At most, I can give them my name plate as memory for helping other people build their dream.
As I fell in love with the business values and culture, I know for sure that when I succeed in my home business, I would have grown to be a better person because in order to succeed in this business, I must be willing to help people get what they want and help them change their life for the better.

My faith in the home business keep growing as witness true stories of people who succeeded in their home business. I saw them having the freedom to live life in their own terms, they work because they choose to work and not because they have to work.

I saw them being able to spend more time with their family and live a fulfilling life. As they grow into a 'bigger' individual with unlimited resources, they are able to impact thousands of life by helping others unleash their greatness to live their dream. And I've seen how they are changing the world and fighting poverty. I want to be just like them.

I am grateful that I found my life purpose. And if you can see what I see, perhaps we can create something special together.

With Love,

Rainy

In Authenticity and Courage

I believe that there is a better way to live, and if you are searching for clarity and courage despite all fears and uncertainty, follow me in my journey from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Cheers,

Rainy
