Don’t Make these Mistakes with your Customers

For any business, it’s important to know what your customers want and need. It’s what gives you an edge over your competitors. Offering targeted deals is one of the best ways to connect with your customers and show them you have what they need. Sounds easy, right? The concept of targeted marketing is simple, but implementing it is a big challenge for most companies. Avoid these mistakes when offering your customers targeted deals. 

What Are Targeted Deals?

In an era of online retail and easy price comparisons, most customers are looking for big savings when they shop for goods and services. Companies that personalize their offerings can provide additional incentives to their clients. Reaching out to customers requires showing them you have exactly the types of deals they’re looking for. Companies do this to a greater or lesser extent through traditional advertising. The advent of big data means that more information is available at your fingertips than ever before. Businesses now have greater access to the actual purchasing and shopping habits of their target audience. Reaching customers is easier thanks to the multiple ways that companies can communicate; through direct mail, email marketing and social media. However, customers can be turned off by poorly executed messaging.

Strategies for Sharing a Small Space

Sharing a small apartment with another person can be challenging, especially if your personalities are different. Fortunately, there are things you can do to help keep the peace. Use these strategies to make the most of your compact space and establish mutually respectful ground rules.

Use the Power of Illusion

Human perception of space has more to do with color, light and arrangement than with actual dimensions. Creating an open feel in your apartment is less difficult than you think. The following tricks can help you make small spaces seem bigger. 

-Use light colors on the wall to create a brighter space.

-Make the most of natural light with sheer panels placed high and wide over windows.

-Include ambient, task and accent lighting sources to draw the eye.

-Place mirrors at strategic points to widen hallways and small rooms.

-Provide contrast and focal points for rooms to keep your gaze moving.

How to Create a Welcoming Guest Room

How to Create a Welcoming Guest Room

Summer seems designed for friends and family, picnics and barbeques, swimming and fun. Summer is also a season full of frequent overnight guests. Create a welcoming atmosphere in your guest room with these luxury touches.

Clear the Clutter

Instead of shoving the clutter into closets and drawers, consider hiding unused items in plain sight. Decorative boxes can do double duty as both temporary storage and room accessories. Antique suitcases or a steamer trunk also provide handy storage space.

Make Their Belongings Accessible

Install hooks over closet doors and on the back of entryway doors for hanging clothes. A folding luggage stand or two will keep suitcases within easy reach without requiring your guests to stoop or move heavy baggage on and off the bed. A small tray or bowl on top of the nightstand makes a convenient repository for keys and jewelry.

50 Years of the Grateful Dead: The Final Tour

Fifty years, or half a century, is a long time, no matter who you are. For the Grateful Dead, a classic American rock band, it was how long the band serenaded the public with hit songs such as Cumberland Blues and Friend of the Devil. It seems that the band has decided to hang it up, at least collectively, with a farewell tour. “Fare Thee Well” honored the band in its 50th anniversary year, giving fans a chance to see the band members perform together one last time. 

Who Were the Grateful Dead?

While the band’s name is well-recognized among most music fans today, many don’t know the history of this legendary band. The Grateful Dead was formed in 1965 in the city of Palo Alto in California. Their music consisted of a variety of sounds, including rock, folk, blues, reggae and bluegrass. Members would join and leave with new ones replacing them. However, the main members stayed together throughout the band’s history.

Technology Conquers Language Learning

Technology Conquers Language Learning

Technology is used in almost every sphere of life today. People use various forms of technology to communicate and work. It has even changed how people work and relax. It only makes sense that technology would also be used for learning a language. Here are some surprising technological trends in language learning today.

Why Technology Works

The use of digital technology to learn another language makes sense due to the basic mechanics of language development. Learning another language is based on several activities including listening and speaking. Introductory language courses focus heavily on these components. Writing and reading are two of the other main skills used to learn a language. These skills can be enhanced through the use of technology. From social media to video learning, the potential is massive. As technology grows more intelligent, it will be possible to tailor a learning program to meet the specific requirements of an individual learner.
