So, it has finally come to an end; the end of me blogging.
It has been what seems like a long ten weeks of blogging for me. When I originally started blogging it seemed like I was “doomed,” no one would ever read my blog (I still haven‘t made many connections through my blog) but I may be wrong.
But as my blogging (for school) has came to an end with this final blog me making connections hasn‘t. Everyday I am told again and again how important developing connections is within the workplace.
Connections help everybody. Connections can be made between coworkers, between friends, classmates, teachers, professionals, etc. etc. Connections are the way to go when involved in business. Connections help people get the job they want, reach their goals, as well as achieve success within the workplace. The power of making connections within different channels of your life can not be stressed enough.
Connections, connections, connections. Make them, they are the pathway to success.
Managing your time day to day might seem like something everyone does whether it comes easy to them is something completely different.
So, as you might’ve guessed I am in fact one of toughs people who doesn’t manage their time effectively. At this time I happen to have quite a few different lengthy assignments I’m working on currently that are due at the end of the month. Example’s include a group case study, a group persuasive assignment on a local radio station, etc. etc. As you can see I have a lot on my shoulders as a college student. So, how on earth am I to manage my time correctly to get all this done? .. Ah, I went online and found this! the perfect list to help me manage my time and if you’re anything like me, you to.

So, you want Stove Top. Why not get yourself a pound of beef as well?
This is known as a sales promotion of shorts and yes, it is indeed a form of drawing you into the grocery store!
A coupon is a coupon right? NO. There are different types of coupons, tons of different types of coupons. Well not quite tons, but there are enough and a cross-ruff coupon is one of them. A cross-ruff coupon is when a certain product say, like the example above, Stove Top offers you a coupon but not for the product itself, Stove Top but for another related product such as pound of beef.
Why do this? You ask.
Well this allows for your company to attract attention to the target brand, in this case the pound of beef, while they purchase your product, Stove Top. All at once. This type of coupon also proved to increase sales and ultimately provide better profit for companies who used this type of sales promotion compared to companies who didn’t (interesting facts).
Plus, who doesn’t want a deal? Regardless of how much a company makes on us. I know I do. Well, I’m off to buy some Stove Top while I get my pound of beef! Who loves the cross-ruff? I do.
A list broker, eh?
How private do you think your life really is? Do you have a facebook account? Maybe you tweet? Or how about this one. Do you have a post box through Canada Post? Well I’m assuming mostly everyone reading this can answer yes to at least two out of the three questions above. So, why does this matter you might ask. List brokers, that’s why.
So, what is a list broker exactly? Well, a list broker is someone who acts as an agent for people who conduct direct marketing campaigns through either direct mail, email, or telemarketing, etc. They provide lists to these direct marketers to help them market their product to YOU. These lists include information about you such as your name, your address, your sex, etc. etc. The list goes on.
But how? Well, your information isn’t as secure as you may have once thought. In fact little tid bits of you could be floating around just about anywhere. Everyone is looking for a dollar out of you. Your facebook account sells you out, your school, where you live, your age, and well even your birthday. Twiiter, all the same. And yes, even Canada Post compiles lists about us that can be seen, for a price, check it out.
Everyone is dying to know about us, but is this such a bad thing?
I mean, I did get that perfect pair of jeans I seen online.
