Tips In Organizing A Conference

Tips In Organizing A Conference

Conference management is not an easy task especially if you have never done it before. It may be an event for a number of people or the entire company which could really put pressure on you as the organizer. You don’t have to fret though as there are things you can do in order to make sure the conference will be a smooth sailing event.

  • First thing you should decide on is setting the goal. It means that you should know more about what your organization, meaning the leaders up high, wanted. You will be able to save important resources such as time and energy if you know from the start the theme of the event, the location or even the city where they want to hold the conference and the headliners if there are any. Make sure that everyone agrees to avoid any issues.
  • You don’t have to carry the burden alone. You can organize a committee that will help you with conference management. It is recommended to include people that have specific skills such as in publicity, budgeting, marketing, networking and program planning among many others. A great team will make the whole task easier.
  • It is important to have ample time when working on organizing an event. You should have at least one year to prepare though two years is ideal. If you are the organizer of the conference for this year, you should prepare for the next one after this is over even if it is still a long way before the next conference.
  • Don’t forget about the budget. You should have an estimate of all the cost and how much will people have to pay in order to be a part of it. Do not just make assumptions on the cost but make sure to do your research. Do not forget about small details such as notepads and pens to be used, the travel cost and gifts for the speakers.
  • Conference management takes a lot of time to organize. When deciding on a location, you will have to check out the venues yourself to see them in actual. You can ask for conference centers and hotels that offer packages and deals.

The Thing About Home Removalists

The Thing About Home Removalists

Here is an image of the Collingwood removalists, Friendly Moving Men, shirtless as part of efforts to create a calendar as a way to help the homeless under the care of Merri Outreach. These men are part of a new trend of removalists across Australia discarding the old, outdated, and, frankly, stupid image of them being ‘heavy lifting thugs’ that was prevalent for quite some time.

From home removalists in Sydney, to removalists in Melbourne, these people and companies are working to show the community, and the world, that removalists are much like any other good business; that they care about their customers. Moving from one house to another can, of course, be a difficult and exhausting process, which is where removalists are coming in. Recently, they’ve gotten quite a bit of popularity amidst the Australian markets for alleviating the many troubles that come with the moving process.

Now, these new trendsetters are making sure that removalists all over the country are also known for their quality customer service. I think, this is a reflection of the more modern times; these days, it’s hard to keep a secret, what with the internet and all, so a business’s mistakes are practically guaranteed to come out, which would, of course affect how customers perceive that business, which would then affect how many customers said business gets. A business is, ultimately built on its customers.

So it’s nice that home removalists in Sydney and across Australia are working to generate a new, more positive image about themselves. Truthfully, the old one was outdated and ill-conceived. As I’ve said before and, as anyone knows, moving can be very difficult. So for removalists to become as notable as they have recently, it stands to reason that they must be providing a key service with regards to such a notoriously difficult and personal task. A home is more than just bricks and mortar, and furniture is more than just a few chairs, sofas, refrigerators and the like. Their value isn’t just how much it cost to get them, and how much it would cost to move them from home to home, but also how the owner perceives them, sentimental value and all that. For removalists to be consistently trusted with such things speaks highly of them.

At the end of the day, anyone can appreciate great customer service.

Why Content Is King

Why Content Is King

We’ve heard it before; “content is king”. The phrase, popularized by a Bill Gates essay published in ’96. The essay had Bill Gates liken the internet to a photocopier for ideas, wherein content can be distributed to an audience, no matter how large, at cheap pricing. He stated that the internet would change things, seeing as any company or business could participate, no matter how small they were.

Fast forward 20 (Okay, 21) years, and how has the phrase held up?

If you ask any content marketing consultant worth their salt, they’ll say it held up quite well. Content marketing isn’t exactly new; it’s been around quite a bit. The thing is, it wasn’t until recent times that it became important. With recent technologies altering the market as they go, just why is content king?

  • SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization, which does what the name suggests it does. Unique content published on a regular basis, usually around 300-500 words with well-placed links and keywords makes a website rank higher with its SEO. The higher the SEO, the more likely the site will show up on the first page of search results, which attracts traffic to the site, which, in turn, generates customers and profit.
  • Engagement. Good content makes a brand worth noticing and engaging with. In the massive chasm that is the bowels of cyberspace, the forgotten, uninspired, un-engaging content lie. Great content will generate traffic for a long time; they’ll entice customers to patronize, understand, and maybe even advertise for free: word of mouth is a great way to advertise cheaply. Any content marketing consultant, hell, any businessperson will tell you, being communicable to your customers is a great way to ensure brand loyalty, people, after all, tend to stick with whoever reciprocates.
  • Writing good content allows for advertisement, without coming across as ham-fisted. By this we mean, you’re talking about your product/service in a way that feels natural, and not like something pulled right out of a commercial. This makes the customer more open to your input, and also allows you to pick up ideas from your customers.
  • Adding value to your site via good content is a good idea. Offering ideas, advices and tips to your customers allows you to advertise (as usual), whilst helping your customers. This fosters the brand-customer relationship, which means that customers are more like to stay with your brand for longer.
Hot Air Advertising: Literally Above The Competition

Hot Air Advertising: Literally Above The Competition

Advertising’s important; it can make or break a sales attempt or the launch of a new product. It goes without saying, that any advantage you can get over the competition is important. Bigger is better, anything to help you rise above the competition. So, naturally, some people take it to the logical conclusion: an advertising blimp. No better way to make sure that your branded merchandise gets noticed than by having it be seen every time someone looks up, right?

Granted, it’s not a ridiculous idea, it’s quite common, especially in big events like NASCAR or the Super Bowl, but the ways it’s been used have been getting crazier in recent years. Take this one, for example. The Hendrick’s Gin’s Hendrick’s Air blimp; a 130-foot long cucumber blimp with the company’s logo plastered across it. Granted, it’s no Goodyear Blimp, which averages at about 190 feet, but it’s still quite the sight.

Especially when you fly it so close to the cities.

The Hendrick’s Air campaign, to put it simply, was a bold summer advertising made by Hendrick’s Gin 2 years ago, in 2015. I read about it looking through some bold advertising ideas, and the cucumber blimp certainly fits that. If not in size, then in location. The blimp flew at 35 miles per hour across America, with some lucky enthusiasts coming along for the coast-to-coast ride. The blimp flew below 1000-feet, as shown in this image, close to the city skyscrapers of Los Angeles, San Fran, etc., before finally stopping, with a party no less, at Chicago’s Galleria Marchetti.

It’s some bold advertising, flying so low to the skyscrapers. Imagine how many people looked out their office windows and saw a giant cucumber. Not every day that happens; blimps aren’t too rare, but that close? It was something else to say the least.

Now, whilst other companies, like the aforementioned Goodyear, haven’t been flying their blimps so close to office skyscrapers, they have been using them creatively to advertise their branded merchandise, with stunts like a drive-in theatre where the show is played on the blimp’s side, things like that.

It makes one wonder what kind of advertising stunt companies have in mind for their blimps. In such a scenario, better have a camera ready when you look up.

Country Canvas Commerce: Money Through Expression And Art

Country Canvas Commerce: Money Through Expression And Art

Photographs are big. Now that may sound like an extremely obvious thing to point out, but it’s well worth being reminded of the fact that not everything old has been eclipsed by technology and development, rather, that they have been elevated alongside it. A picture’s worth a thousand words? Post it with your Facebook status. Photography has become more prominent in the digital age, with many sites promoting self-expression on the internet via photographs. Bar the negative internet stereotype of such sites, they really do promote photography, and the pursuit of seeking that perfect shot that shows what you feel.

Of course, one has to admit, technology has given us more creative ways to make a profit, and this canvas print UK is a good example. Not just of how technology has helped people expressing themselves make a profit out of their passion, but of how traditional and technological can merge into a thing of beauty. If you pay attention to the canvas print, it’s the London skyline, with a bridge a little bit to the left side of the image. Dotted across the image are skyscrapers, but placed neatly alongside them are the more traditional towers of the older London architecture. This shows a harmonious duality of the city; of how the old and new can work together. Look up aerial views of the Parliament houses and you’ll see modern architecture alongside it and in the background.

Now, I mentioned how technology has helped people pursuing their passion procure a profit. For those curious, this canvas print UK is size-based on cost. There are several measurements, with the smallest, 8″ by 10″ costing about £ 60, or approximately $ 73. Custom measurements will set you back by around £ 400 or close to $ 500. That’s a lot of cash to fork over for a photo printout. I’m sure that the photographer and the company that printed this canvas print is happy about that pricing.

It shows that photography is a booming business, and that being a creative individual at heart has profitable applications all over the world. Of course, since a canvas print UK of a double negative image of an anime character costing for $50, there’s definitely a market for creative products.
