Total Toddler Care

Bath time for most children is fun. For a newborn, it is anything but. They just want to sleep, look around, be held and eat most of the time. Still, it is important to keep them clean. Walk into any department store and you are sure to find an aisle full of different baby products, all asking to be in use on your child. The question is though do you need them and should you use them. Products that are not safe can harm babies of all ages. However, even those that have ratings as safe to use on young children may be a waste of money. Here is a closer look.

Promoting Your Brand and Personal Branding For Success



Promoting Your Brand

Remember the importance of branding. If you haven't already initiated a brand for your company, now might be just the time. Use these simple techniques in the promotion of your special brand.

Make your brand as unique as possible. Catch the eye of the public by creating something different- something that people have not yet seen. Instead of doing what has already been done, go the opposite direction and be creative. Don't forget the legal dangers of copyright infringement related to borrowing or stealing from another firm's design.

Display stability. Take time in the development process to establish your brand and accomplish the look you really want. It's better to spend sufficient time in the beginning fine-tuning your design to the desired outcome, rather than to play with it after it's been revealed to the public. Changing your brand, and all that's involved with it, including colors, slogans, logos, and tag lines, doesn't support an image of reliability and long-lastingness

Stability should be maintained with branding. If you have integrated a brand into your company's marketing, then use it all over the place. It should appear on all of your marketing materials, business cards, web site, and printed items. The same is true for your packaging. Your brand should appear on all of your products. .

Give your brand away to the public with diverse promotional products. You can help your brand to saturate the consumer population by handing out precious, yet low-cost, items. Promotional products encourage possible customers to keep in mind your brand and your gift every time they are used. Consider useful devices such as letter openers, flashlights, first aid kits, and CD cases.

Brands are an extremely effective marketing tool. When working with your concept, consider the above to ensure the development of an effective brand.

Personal Branding For Success

One important part of branding is the image you yourself portray.  Developing a likeable personal brand is essential for succeeding. If you want to rise to the top of your particular arena, you need to first be able to sell yourself to your potential customers. Think about it.  Would you rather do business with a person who smiles and comes across as friendly or with one who snarls and ignores you?  The first impression a potential customer receives is from you.  Make it a good one. How can you accomplish this?

One: Become an expert source.  

Two: Become a great communicator. Research shows communications skill is the top determinant for upward social and professional mobility.  

Three: Draft a marketing plan for yourself annually, and review it quarterly. Include specific goals, strategies, action steps, and a timetable. 

Four: Develop an 'elevator speech." Within the time that it takes an elevator to travel one floor - about 60-seconds - be able to deliver a succinct description of what you do, how you do it differently, and the benefit it provides.  

Five: Build your Rolodex. Make new business contacts and stay in touch with them. Most people with powerful brands have powerful friends.

Six: Balance your individual style with clothing that will appeal to those you are trying to impress. 

Seven: Learn good business and social etiquette. Buy elegant personal stationery and send hand-written notes.  

Eight: Give something back. Giving your time, talent, and money to charitable causes is a brand-builder especially when it complements your brand strategy. Find a cause you are passionate about.   

Your personal brand is one of your greatest business assets. Put as much time and effort into it as you do in branding your product.  In the end, if you can't sell yourself, you'll find it nearly impossible to sell your product. brand success

Ebook Sales and Marketing Tips – Want to Make Money? Give Your Ebook Away!




Okay, that sounds a little contradictory, right? You’re probably reading this article to find out how to sell your next Ebook, and I’m telling you to give it away!

But if you’ll keep reading for a minute, you’ll find out why this could be one of the best Internet Marketing ideas you’ll ever try.Here are 5 tips that will help you to make the biggest ROI (Return on Investment) from giving away a free Ebook.

1. Write a short Ebook about how to get the most out of an affiliate product that you’re promoting. Or choose another subject that fits a particular product. Put the link to the product inside the Ebook. Make sure that the information in your Ebook is both interesting and valuable to the reader.

2. Contact the person whose affiliate product you’re going to be promoting and offer it to him/her to give away to his list.

3. Contact newsletter publishers and offer to let them give the Ebook away to members of their lists. (Of course, you’re going to send everyone to your squeeze page, right?)

4. Put the link to your squeeze page at the bottom of your email signature and on your signature at forums, blogs you post on, etc.

5. Set up JV partnerships with other people who are promoting similar – but not competing products or services and give them the chance to give away your Ebook.

Here are some other ideas to keep in mind when writing your Ebook so that it is perceived as valuable by your target audience and your JV partners.

• Use screenshots, graphics or photos so you’re not only telling your readers “what” to do, but they can see “how” to do it also.

• If you’re not a writer, you can hire someone else to ghostwrite it for you. (Just a hint, don’t only go for the cheapest price – otherwise you may as well write it yourself, because the quality will probably be about the same.)

• Have someone go through it to check for grammar and spelling mistakes.

• Read it out loud to check that it makes sense and flows smoothly.

• If you’re handy with graphics editing software, create a cover for your Ebook. People will see it as more valuable if it looks like a “real” book. If you’re not handy, you can always outsource that.

• People don’t want to read 50 or 60 page reports – everyone is pressed for time. Keep your Ebook short – between 13 and 18 pages is just about ideal. Get rid of the fluff and cut right to the heart of the information that you’re giving away.
• Put the link to your affiliate product in a several different places throughout the book. You never know what one idea is going to spark someone’s interest or overcome their last objection and be the deciding factor in them buying your affiliate product.
• Because your Ebook may go viral (which is the idea) and get passed around in ways you never imagined, put a signup box or link to your squeeze page in the book, to grab new subscribers.
As you can see, sometimes giving something of value away for free is one of the best ways for you to make money. This is one of the best-kept secrets of successful affiliate marketers. Follow it, and you’ll soon see your success on the rise as well.
