MM&I Header

February 27, 2012 - How are you taking advantage of this leap year? It thrills me that February 29th falls on a Wednesday, as I have always considered Wednesdays "jump" days versus "hump" days. By viewing mid-week as an opportunity to leap forward into the rest of the week or into planning and anticipating a fun-filled weekend, you shift your momentum from going through the motions to continuing to put things in motion.

Take an MM&I moment to make this leap-year Wednesday your commitment to never viewing Wednesday as "hump" day ever again.  Determine to use Wednesdays as a day of moving specific desires personally and professionally forward. How can you make quantum leaps into making your most desired dreams come true? Your life is worth living every day in pursuit of your dreams. So hop to it with small initiatives that will move whatever it is you desire forward. Whether it is making a call or connecting with someone, getting more information or simply starting, you will be jumping for joy when you begin to see what you passionately envision come to life before your eyes.


Synergized Quote of the Week 

"Oh the wild joys of living! The leaping from rock to rock ... the cool silver shock of the plunge in a pool's living waters." - Robert Browning


Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

How are you using electronic communications to reinforce your story to customers and prospects? How are you defining who receives these communications and what you are sharing? The key to successful eZines, eBlasts and eCommunications is relevancy, consistency, interactivity and authentic inclusion. Make sure that what you are sharing is truly of interest and value to those receiving. Also make sure that it is timed to be received at a frequency that is most appealing to your customers. While unexpected communications to your entire database to announce a special recognition or time-sensitive topic can be a strategic means of inciting an immediate call to action, make sure your eCommunications is part of an overall plan of ongoing delivery so those receiving look forward to receiving versus wondering when the next one will be received. Make sure you are leveraging the Internet in your communications with links to your website or resources that further reinforce your value or the points you are trying to make. Most important of all is make sure you are not sending to contacts that have not been authentically qualified as interested in receiving your communications. Cold contact emailing is not only frowned upon, but could get your email or IP address blacklisted on entire email server systems.
