He really was the man who kept the African countries joint for such a long period. Now after couple of years after his death the situation of the African countries is that bad that people are scared to travel the African nations, example I offer people jobs that involve travel but they often decline me when I tell them that they will have to travel to Africa for their specific task mainly because of the high amount of crime rate and terrorism. In a nutshell African countries need to improve their security atmosphere rapidly and I don't think that can happen now after this great man has demised he was the last hope for Africa.
It is really interesting to see what conversations on social media; especially community pages, are all about. Hard to interpret. But no holds barred opinion with a total disregard for legal consequences. "Restaurant X should be avoided since the new chef / owner ' because decor, price quality etc. in reply to a honest " Where should I take my father for lunch - I'm new here" Posted on a community page with 5k readers. Now that is data to consider.
As the public becomes more aware and educated concerning additives and carcinogenics which food manufacturers use to concoct food products, I think it would be a great opportunity for the makers of Cremora to use their advertising to enlighten the consumer as to the actual contents of their product. They don't have to give away their recipe - but how about telling us what Cremora actually is? Is it dried milk powder? Is it polyfiller? Is it some other chemicals concocted to replace milk powder and what are the benefits or dangers in consuming Cremora?
There are a lot of opportunities to get a creative job nowadays. In this post the excellent idea of being creative through multifunctionality and skills combining was mentioned (fashion photographer who is also an excellent writer)
People will always believe what they want to believe especially when it comes to weight management and health. The R8BN complementary and alternative health industry is another example. Anyone can produce any product without doing peer reviewed trials, package it attractively and sell it for a fortune. Look at the resistance by this industry to Govt plans to regulate it. It is proved over and over again that most of these supplements are expensive urine. Big pharma are equally corrupt and manipulate their research too. Until we grow up and stop letting ourselves get hoodwinked we get what we deserve.
Just a ridiculous article. Its the online "gumtree" manager / marketer simply promoting his own medium with no real fact or substance. The reason why traditional media still work for automotive advertising is that they still provide the best content and invest in content and writers who can give a non biased opinion on a vehicle. Most traditional media are online anyhow, even local publications and they have a direct link to their audience and a credibility. Just buying an arbitrary vehicle from an unknown source on a national "megasite" is maybe where they will do their homework on value and price comparisons, but not really what the local audience will trust as a trusted source.
This was such an interesting read, in a research industry that usually focuses on the OEMs and little on the car dealers that get those manufactured vehicles to buyers. Accenture conducted a report on South African drivers earlier in the year. The tastes of motorists should be where the dealers align their marketing budgets, and as this analysis of the research suggests http://www.usedcarsforsale.co.za/news/49/what-south-african-car-drivers-want-accenture-report, the dealers just aren't cracking it with millennials.
Jeff, I couldn't agree with you more. You're right in that many car dealerships shy away from marketing online themselves, due to fear [of new marketing methods] and dependence on online platforms they deem to be effective. However, the costs involved are not as exorbitant as one would expect - a decent catalogue website can be done for R5,000 to R15,000. In addition to that, a monthly amount of R5,000 to R10,000 spent on online marketing will be adequate for a small to medium [50 to 100 cars] dealership. There are many marketing companies out there, claiming to be able to do the above. These online marketers implement online campaigns, and generate traffic or visitors to the website in question - however, once this is done, contractually, they will have legally fulfilled their obligation. And herein lies the problem - the average dealer [literally left alone in the dark] is not adept at successfully converting this new stream of traffic into buying customers. Enquiries are straight-forward and easy to handle, but ‘likes’, ‘tweets’ and ‘clicks’ pose a different scenario. The secret here is how to engage this traffic in such a way, that strangers are converted into friends, friends into fans, and fans into customers. In other words, you’ve got to get your new stream of traffic to divulge their contact details, market directly to them, and respond to their buying signals. And in an industry as competitive as the motor sales industry, one needs to move quickly. For more information on how this can be done, interested parties can mail me at : email@example.com. Kind regards, Sherman.
The new generation has things moving so quickly that it's really been difficult for businesses to pinpoint where to begin or how to catch on to whatever the latest trends may be for them. It's really goign to take quite a different approach and I agree that we may need to buck up a lot to catch the attentions of the new generation and find a way to reach them on a different and impactful level.
I can agree with the author that not all the benefits can be calculated in money. The businessman need to understand the necessity of development and right money investments. Also he or she should understand where to spend money and when to save. For example there is a good online service that provides instant payday loans from direct lenders. and it can be a great solution for those who have enough money income and who wants to invest it in other sphere. Also it is beneficial to take such monetary help instead of taking long-term obligations.
