Social media is the new platform for business

Social media is the new platform for business

Everyone knows that social media is the most effective platform today for branding, marketing and promotions. Brand positioning can be done in the most effective way using the social media tools. Creating social communities and maintaining them effectively not only results in customer satisfaction, it also helps boost sales through repeat purchases and acquisition of new customers. Well it is true that all of us know about it. Unfortunately, not everyone knows how to get started with building social media community and where to direct the efforts. Many people say that social media takes up a lot of time which they hardly have. It is like saying, “I only have time to manufacture. I don’t have time to sell.” Here is how you can effectively create a social community to build your brand:

Be what you are: Don’t try to oversell

Markets have evolved, human relations have evolved, modes of interactions have evolved – in a nutshell the entire world has evolved. So has evolved the consumer. If you think you have a hold on the nerves of the people, people too know exactly where you are being manipulative. You can’t fool consumers anymore. If you want to create a social community and build your brand you will need to be authentic. You cannot have two identities – a social media identity and a real world identity. Both the identities should be the same. You should be very clear about what you are communicating through social media community and it should be absolutely genuine. No matter what tools of communication you use (video, chatting, images, write ups, tweets, or updates) make sure the real you is reflected.

Staying focused is important for maintaining social community

Meet your social community

Meet your social community

Social media and internet’s approach is completely borderless. What you are in US can also get reflected in Japan. There are billions of web pages on the Internet and thousands of social media utilities at your disposal. Such a vast array of choices is likely to bewilder you. Don’t be spoilt by choices. Staying focused will be the key to your brand’s success. Start by identifying your target audience first. Once you have identified, you will need to figure out the right social media platforms where you want to build the community. You cannot have hundreds of communities. You will not be able to manage them properly and it will lose effectiveness. Instead focus on only primary social media communities. Divert all your efforts to those communities.

Staying consistent means staying visible

You can’t just create a social community and forget it. Brand building doesn’t happen that way. No matter the social media tool you are using to build your brand, stay consistent. People have short memory and they may forget you easily if you don’t remain visible all the time. Even the world’s biggest brands never stay out of sight of people. Make sure that your social media activities are frequent and consistent. Once you have built a community, you need stay in sight.

A tool for brand building and brand recognition.

Social media is the most effective tool for brand building and brand recognition. If you manage to provide quality service, you will get a lot of positive word of mouth. Good word (or bad) spreads fastest on the social media than any other media. Every brand is turning to social media today.

What is the right investment move?

What is the right investment move?

We know that the current banking structure is limited by geographic location. When we travel, we bring a credit card or ample amount of cash to avoid the hassles associated with inter-bank transactions. This applies most especially when we’ve spent our entire lives using a single bank in our location. What happens when we travel and need a hefty amount of cash? Are we supposed to carry that amount of money and take it as a check-in baggage? With international banking, we don’t have to do that.

What is International Banking?

International Banking is one of the newer services offered by International Banking Facilities (IBF) especially in the United States. These facilities are existing banks that offer money movement services (funds transfer, for example) or specialize in International Banking transactions. What IBFs do is they cater to clients who are expats, who are looking towards moving to another country for retirement, or who are travelling frequently from one country to another. At this time, there are only a few IBFs, and most of them have pre-determined list of countries when it comes to where the money comes from and where it goes.

What are the Benefits of International Banking?

First, International Banking permits 24/7 access to your funds. Clients can own multiple accounts under multiple currencies and manage their investment portfolio online or over the phone at any time of the day.

Second, International Banking offers reduced financial costs. We are well aware that there are transaction fees imposed on international money transfers. We end up losing money because of that. With International Banking, transaction fees are reduced.

Third, clients enjoy the benefit of accessing their money in a different currency through the usual bank transactions like withdrawal, bill payment, etc.

Finally, International Banking clients are provided with professional assistance from bank employees who are knowledgeable with multi-country banking policies, processes, and fees. Clients can seek advice on other investment opportunities tied to IBF services.

How Does International Banking Work?

First, clients who wish to go to another country can fill in a money transfer form online or at a domestic branch where their accounts are. Just like “Dollar Accounts,” IBF accounts automatically convert incoming money under the specific currency that the account was opened under. At this time, the most popular IBF account currencies are the US Dollar, Sterling, Euro, and Yen.

Second, the bank initiates the transfer from the domestic account to the IBF account. Note that your money is not really wired to an offshore account because some domestic banks who are also IBFs keep their clients’ international accounts on a separate book within the same bank or in another country where they operate in. It’s just like transferring funds between your deposit accounts in the same bank only that the funds under IBF transfers are converted to a different currency.

Do business 24/7

Finally, because of the differences in banking laws between countries, it might take two to four business days before the receiving bank credits a client’s offshore account. It is beneficial for clients to initiate the transfer days before they go to the country where they’re sending the money to. Common countries where IBF accounts can be set up in are the US, the UK, Japan, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, and the United Arab Emirates. Other countries may be eligible but clients might have to deal with stricter banking policies.

International Banking seems a bit complicated, but with proper information, clients can appreciate the ease associated with moving their money from one currency to another, to one location to another, and from one bank to another.

Kick-Starting A Catering Business

Kick-Starting A Catering Business

When it comes to starting a catering business, there is a number of things you should consider buying. The exact number and the type of items to consider will depend on the type of catering business you want to operate. If you’re starting a catering business for parties, purchasing large serving dishes is unavoidable, but if you’re planning to start a catering for the sale of cupcakes at the local food market, then big serving dishes will not be needed. That said, below are some of the common things you’ll need to start a catering business.

Consider buying legal items

After deciding how your business will be structured, the first step will be for you to register your business with the secretary of state’s office. You’ll also need a Federal tax Identification Number from the service of internal revenue. Some states will require that you get a license for your business and that certain criteria are met before your business can become fully operational. Consider things like food safety certificate and be mindful of the fact that some states would not allow you to operate a catering business from a private home.

Get facilities that meet state laws

The laws in your area may require you to separate the kitchen facilities to meet the regulations of the state for health and safety. You can rent a warehouse area where you can install a kitchen. You may also consider the types of food that are allowed in your state to prepare at home. You may need separate storage facilities for meat and vegetable like refrigerators. You’ll also need a fire extinguisher that meets the requirements of the state you’ll operate in. Water and sewage supplies may be separated. The sewage system should also meet the state requirements for pollution control and waste management. Depending on the laws of your state, you may also need to set up different waste pickups.

You should buy the right equipment for your business

As said earlier, the size and type of equipment you get will depend on the nature of your catering business. Some of the equipment can be rented, including serving dishes. If you’ll cook the food at your client’s home, then you may not need storage facilities. In that case, you can purchase a good set of knives and other specialty equipment such as decorating tools for cakes. If you’ll be preparing food in advance, then you’ll need a commercial kitchen, refrigeration equipment, fire extinguishing system that meets state regulations, pans and ovens, and mixers. You will also need to buy or rent things like serving dishes, table decorations, plates, utensils, and glasses.

Whether you’ll be preparing food in a commercial kitchen or in your client’s home, you’ll need transportation. Make sure that you buy an SUV or a van that can transport any kind of equipment, supplies, and things you need for your business. You can also rent a vehicle for your business; however, it will be ideal to have your own vehicle. The above items can get you started with your catering business.
