How to damage your brand

Asian firms are increasingly resorting to direct mail as a way to differentiate their brands. There is no doubting the potentially effective nature of direct mail but the campaign must contain the right information and be targetted at the right market, otherwise the effect can be disastrous.
Send data too often and to the wrong people will create a negative feeling toward your brand. Bearing in mind that consumers will talk about a negative interaction with a brand for longer than they will talk about a positive experience, the danger signs are obvious.
I signed up with a local event organiser for information on forthcoming branding and marketing seminars they organise in the region. Instead, I get one to three emails a day on human resource, accounting, insurance and other events related to events I have nothing to do with and no interest in. These emails are trashed with the same irritation as the ones for Viagra and incestous sex. The result being that I do not have anything positive to say about the organiser.
In the mass economy of yesterday, with limited conduits to consumers as well as less competition, mass, un-targetted, poorly written, repeatedly sent, direct mail was tolerated. Today, if you want to protect your brand from the ever more influential voice of the consumer, it isn't.

Find out how your company rates by using a little known rating system!

Is your company a Scam, Dud, Scheme, Fraud Or Good Opportunity?.

95% of the money-making opportunities on the internet have been worked to death or are not suitable to be marketed through the internet. How does your company and/or opportunity rate… I’ll leave it to you to decide if your service, product and/or money making opportunity falls in this category.

Hurry you may NOT be happy with what you will find!

"I have been using Advanced Gain Pro for 3 months now and I must say I'm simply amazed. I really didn't think the product would have this many benefits. I really only purchased the pills to help the reliability of my erections. But to my surprise every aspect of my penis and sex life has improved. I have larger, harder erections easily, and I can really satisfy my girlfriend fully now."

Hi all
It is a good idea to start using enviromentally safe and animal friendly (non-toxic) substitutes when grooming your dog. You must groom your dog's whole body including the legs, tail and underbody if you want to do it right. You must groom certain dogs from the skin outward to truly be effective in taking care of their coat of hair and keeping it healthy. Comb through the unseen healthy hair and remove the shedding hair; this is what most groomers do first before cutting your pet's coat. You must groom some animals all at once, while some other animals have so much hair that it is easier to do a little at a time each day.
