Many entrepreneurs learn early in their careers that they are never going to be the best at everything. When it comes to running a business, most entrepreneurs do some things really well but can be terrible at something else. However, strengths and weaknesses are all part of the human condition, and even the most seasoned business owner is not without weakness.
Members of Young Entrepreneur Council offer tips for developing effective, sales-boosting e-commerce ads.
When you're a busy entrepreneur, there never seems to be enough time in a day. You likely have long lists of tasks that require your full attention, but little time to sit down and focus on them. This can be overwhelming and, in turn, send your productivity levels into a slump.
Thanks to the explosion of tech, there are many new skills a small business owner must learn in order to be successful in the modern world. However, there are also a whole host of necessary basic skills that stand the test of time.
In business, it's only natural that you'll be called on to present to an audience. However, the stakes of some of these presentations can be relatively high, which can lead to anxiety and heightened nerves for the person giving them. Not everyone is naturally cool under pressure, yet so many business professionals manage to give these pitches effortlessly, or so it seems.
Getting a celebrity to listen to you is hard enough; how do you get them to endorse your startup's product or service?
IgnitePost is a handwritten mail service that enables businesses to develop deeper relationships with customers & prospects. We do this by combining software and robotics to send real pen & ink letters that are indistinguishable from human handwriting. We believe authentic, personalized communication is the key to more sales and happier customers. We are all now subjected to 120 emails and over 5,000 digital ads, EVERY DAY— which is not only a problem for people, but also a huge challenge for companies, who struggle to earn genuine consideration in a digitally saturated world. But there is hope. People still open physical mail. Even better, they open EVERY piece of handwritten mail. So we combined a B2B campaign management software solution with robots that write handwritten notes. In addition to using real pen & ink, our technology uses variable penmanship to produce notes that are indistinguishable from real human handwriting. The result is a far more effective marketing channel with true ROI accountability. Our service yields response rates that are 30X higher than email and 10X higher than direct mail. Since launching, we’ve worked with brands ranging from startups to Fortune 500 businesses (customers such as ClassPass, First Republic Bank, TruEnergy, AthenaHealth, Sotheby's, and Northwestern Mutual).
