Why Do Women Love Snapchat So Much?

A report released by Snapchat stated that 70% of Snapchat users identify as women. Their primary demographic is also those within 18-34 years old. To many businesses, this is a key demographic; women are generally agreed to be more brand loyal, and Millennials in general have significant buying power. Understanding why women use Snapchat is a key piece of connecting with customers over this social media platform.

More Fun Way Of Texting
Many women discuss liking Snapchat as a more visual and fun way to send text messages. When Instagram first started, it was mostly full of users taking random pictures of their meals or their day, and sharing them amongst friends.

Now, Snapchat seems to have replaced that function. Group texts are still a great way to share wordier messages, but a quick snap shares a cute moment from your day or shows you enjoying the fun of wearing a pair of animal ears and cute eyes.

Sharing Random Thoughts
Texting has become more formal and less fun as more and more people use it as a communication method. Texting all your friends is less fun when you’re also texting your boss. Using fun, goofy images to help you share fun moments throughout your day is a more entertaining way to share information with close friends. FULL POST

8 Tips for Successful Business Plan Writing

Entrepreneurs and small business owners often wonder what the key is to write a successful business plan. Obvious mistakes and omissions are quite common - especially for the first business business writer how to write a business plan they do not know. Fortunately, these mistakes are easy to avoid. Here are eight tips to help you write a business plan like a pro!

1. Start with the end in mind - In Alice in the country said the Cheshire Cat Alice: "If you do not know where you are going, a path will take you there." The same goes for your business and your business plan - If you do not have a goal, you do not need a plan.

You already know the importance of a business plan, so sit back and outline your goals before you start writing it. Where should the company be in five years? What is the mission of the company? Do you want a great company, or just live comfortably and pay bills? Would you like to be your company finally acquired? When answering questions like these, and beginning with the end in mind, you should focus your business plan in the right direction in the situation.

2. Learn about your customers through market research - You might think you know your customers, but are you actually sitting down to talk to them? You may be the coolest widget in the world to create, but if no one wants your widgets fresh, your business is going to be a failure. Talk to your customers. Surveys. Lead groups. Find out where customers fail to meet their needs and build a product that meets these needs. A little research can go a long way. FULL POST

4 Honest Ways to Increase Your Church's Attendance

Are the pews looking sparse on Sunday morning? If so, you're not alone. According to the latest Gallup poll, only 26% of Americans attended church once a week in 2016. It can be discouraging when you know you have a great message to share and not nearly as many people as you'd like to share it with.

Fortunately, you can solve this problem by developing a marketing plan. We know—it sounds a little weird to think of "marketing" your church. But just like a business needs good marketing to prompt shoppers to buy its products, you need good marketing to encourage people to visit your church. Here are four tools to get you going, and put more people in those pews.

1. Community involvement

Small businesses get out in the neighborhood for the same reasons as churches: working in the community helps people associate good feelings and develop loyalty to you when they find out all of good things you’re doing. You probably already are doing great work in the community, but it’s time to let people know about it. Design matching T-shirts with your church name on them, so people can easily spot you when you're out and about. You can also publish alerts in the newspaper or post flyers around town to let people know what projects you're working on and even invite them to join you. FULL POST

Why Networking is So Important in Business

Have you built up a network of business contacts that you can call on when you need to? If not, it's something you should consider doing as quickly as possible. Once you start reaching out to other like-minded people, you will start to notice huge differences in your business. Below are some of the main reasons why networking in this way is so important for a modern business owner.

Your Business Will Generate More Sales and Profits

According to business experts like Sam Ovens, many people already have some kind of network, but don't understand how to leverage the contacts they have, so that they can make more sales and profits. Sam says that “When you’re first starting out, don’t forget about your personal network of friends and family”. Many of these people may be interested in what your business has to offer or they can refer your business to other people and companies.

Monetising your existing network in this way could be the start of something much bigger. After developing your existing network, you can then look at approaching other individuals and businesses that are in a position to give your products and services much more exposure. FULL POST
