How to Understand Consumer Email Behavior. A must Read.

How to Understand Consumer Email Behavior. A must Read. | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Since Email is still and probably will be for some time, the most powerful way to reach our customer base, doesn't it make sense to understand how to use this medium to its fullest potential?

 

Late last week Michael Essany and his team of researchers reached out with results from a new survey of 1,000 U.S. internet users on email behavior.

 

The report uncovered a number of interesting findings worth noting for email marketers and digital advertisers everywhere....

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick

Never Forget Someone's Name Again With This Memory Trick | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Sometimes one of the important aspects to career success can be something intangible like how likeable you are.

 

That vague feeling of goodwill is often determined by how genuine you seem when interacting with others. One of the first steps to showing someone you sincerely care about what they’re saying is remembering what they say--especially their name.

 

According to a Dale Carnegie training course I took last year, the sweetest sound to anyone’s ear--no matter what language it’s in--is their name. Without nailing down this first step, it can be difficult to move forward in building a genuine professional or personal relationship. Unfortunately, this can be a difficult task since someone else’s name often doesn’t mean anything to us (it’s just another word) so it’s difficult for our brains to remember it.

Manage Yourself To Become A Great Leader

Manage Yourself To Become A Great Leader | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: If you’ve got ambition and smarts, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession, regardless of where you started out.

 

But with opportunity comes responsibility. Companies today aren’t managing their employees’ careers; knowledge workers must, effectively, be their own chief executive officers. It’s up to you to carve out your place, to know when to change course, and to keep yourself engaged and productive during a work life that may span some 50 years. To do those things well, you’ll need to cultivate a deep understanding of yourself—not only what your strengths and weaknesses are but also how you learn, how you work with others, what your values are, and where you can make the greatest contribution. Because only when you operate from strengths can you achieve true excellence.

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Strong negotiation skills are hugely advantageous throughout one’s life, from the boardroom to the bar. These skills largely rest on your ability to back up your words with physical actions that exude openness, honesty, and confidence. This fosters trust and increases the other party’s desire to react cooperatively and reach agreement.

According to psychologists and a recent study from language experts Gengo, body language and non-verbal communications has a greater impact in a discussion than the actual words that you say.

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile

The Ultimate Guide to a Perfect LinkedIn Profile | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

...Before we jump into these recommendations, let me make one more point perfectly clear. These are not necessarily recommendations for the perfect LinkedIn profile if you're looking for a job. I am writing this from my own perspective, as someone who is using their LinkedIn profile to connect with influencers, partners or prospects. I already have a business and I am counting on LinkedIn to help me grow that businessand reach more of their nearly 200 million active monthly users.

 

All of the recommendations below are just that, recommendations. Take 'em or leave 'em however you'd like. Each can be implemented by going to LinkedIn, logging in, clicking on Profile in the top menu and then clicking on the greyEdit button. This will put your profile in edit mode, and you'll be able to change anything you need to. You may also want to take advantage of LinkedIn's suggestions and recommendations by clicking on the blue Complete My Profile button. LinkedIn will ask you a series of probing questions designed to get your profile even more complete....

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work

Why Complaining Is Killing Your Reputation At Work | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

In one of my first jobs out of school, at a tender 25 years old, I found myself at a firm with no career ladder and a particularly demoralizing, tyrannical boss. Every morning that I walked from my house to that job, I was wretchedly miserable. My one glimmer of happiness was a smart, funny peer—let’s call her Sarah—who became my instant friend. We were in the same unhappy boat, at a similar level in the organization, and I seized on our lunch breaks as prime opportunities to vent my gloom and misfortune with someone who I knew would understand.

When you complain, you’re not endearing yourself to anyone.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 13, 5:36 PM

Complaining is problematic, but is it really what others think about the complainer that is important. Actually, it might be that the complainer ends up focusing on the negative and ends up in a morass of non-productivity. I used to just go back to my classroom and do what I felt was best. It did not make any difference whether the School manager agreed or not. Once I said my piece, I had better things to do.

John Michel's curator insight, July 14, 4:42 AM

Next time you feel the urge to reflexively complain, think through these common perceptions of workplace whiners (by non-whiners). They may just be the best deterrent when you have the need to gripe:

Effective Management: Extroverts vs. Introverts

The workplace is a melting pot of personalities--no surprise there! All types of employees must work together and are expected to overcome personal differences to reach a common goal. But ethics, cultural norms, and temperament can sometimes cause friction.

 

Let's discuss temperament. All employee groups will exhibit two main types: introverts and extroverts. Each type can interact very differently in the workplace. One may be better suited for leadership than the other. But can you always tell which is which?

How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down

How Resilient People Stand Back Up When Life Knocks Them Down | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

While we all expect setbacks and challenges in work and life, sometimes they’re beyond epic. Perhaps you lost your job a year ago or you’re about to run out of money. Maybe you flunked your certification exam for the third time and everyone knows about it. Or it could be that your angry rant went viral, and now all of your coworkers are either whispering about you or shunning you entirely.

 

An occasional disaster does happen for most of us, either in our professional or personal lives. And while it’s not helpful for someone to say, “Well, at least you didn’t [insert something worse],” many people have been through unimaginable hardships.

How Much Data Is Generated On Twitter, Instagram, Vine, Tinder & WhatsApp Every Minute? | AllTwitter | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

Here’s the thing: the internet never sleeps.

 

Which means data never sleeps, and the internet sure likes to use up a lot of it. How much? In any given minute, 277,000 tweets are published on Twitter, 216,000 photos are sent to Instagram and 8,333 videos are shared on Vine.

 

And we’re just getting started. Over that same 60 second period, 347,222 photos are sent on WhatsApp, 416,667 swipes are made on Tinder and 3,472 images are pinned on Pinterest.

 

And if you think that’s impressive, Google receives 4 millions search queries, Facebook users share 2.46 million pieces of content and 204 million email messages are sent each and every minute of the day.

Every day millions of people travel for business. In airports around the world, I see suits flying here and there, carrying laptops, reading briefings on planes, or preparing for their next presentation ‘extraordinaire’. We are all working hard to exceed expectations, meet deadlines, make money, surpass profits, and still be alive at the end.

Unfortunately, many of those travelling executives look like they have had less sleep than a Giraffe, who, according to the Smithsonian Institute, sleep for 5 minutes at a time about 6 times a day and even then have one eye open and both ears alert to predators.
