Strategic Optimization is Key to Marketing and Brand Orchestration – The Content Standard by Skyword

Marketing Strategy
There’s always something new and shiny to try in marketing—from tools and technology to tactics and platforms. The list goes on and on. And agile marketers are used to testing and adapting. It’s ingrained in our minds and shows in our work. This light-footedness serves us well, but can also be the downfall of marketing and brand orchestration. At the enterprise level, the orchestration of multiple brand channels and marketing strategies needs consistency that humans can’t always provide. It requires a delicate balance of both people and technology, where consistency is key. And for true harmony to be achieved, internal efficiencies must be fleshed out in the interest of better serving your audience and customers. But just how important is this consistency? Considering that 96 percent of

4 Tactical Tips to Stay Motivated and Crush Your Goals – Thrive Global

Motivation
I know what you’re thinking: “Another motivation article?” And I get it. I bet you’ve heard “set goals and memorize affirmations” hundreds of times. You’ve probably read thousands of motivational quotes, listened to hours of motivational videos, and read what feels like every book, blog, and article out there. And if none of those made a lasting difference, why read one more? Simple: Because this is the one that’ll work. Don’t get me wrong: There’s an important place for goals and affirmations. But those require conscious effort, and anything that requires conscious effort doesn’t tend to last. What sets the most motivated entrepreneurs apart from the rest is that they’ve turned self-motivation into a habit. That’s why all those other tactics work fo

Hedge-to-Arrive Contracts Make For A Great Marketing Strategy, Successful Marketing Newsletter says – Successful Farming

Marketing Strategy
Corn planting continues to fall further behind. The USDA reported on Monday that just 23% of the U.S. corn was planted. This is 20% behind the five-year average of 46%. When prices are low, we often see basis levels tighten. Farmers are less willing to sell when futures are carving out lows on the charts, so elevators and ethanol plants have to entice selling by offering an attractive basis. If you have bushels left to sell, doing a hedge-to-arrive contract is a great strategy. Here is this week’​s Successful Marketing Newsletter. The last thing on your mind when prices are low is to look at deferred months and consider making sales. I am not saying now is the time to make those sales. However, I am encouraging clients to look at 2020 and 2021 for profitable targets.

NEW YORK (AP) — A woman has told a jury she was forced to perform a sex act with the leader of a secretive upstate New York self-help group. The witness gave the graphic testimony Wednesday at the federal trial of Keith Raniere (rah-NEER'-ee). The woman described her experiences as a member of a master-slave society within NXIVM (NEX'-ee-um), a group that's been compared to a cult. She says after her designated master ordered her to meet Raniere in private, he had her strip and performed oral sex on her. She said she was ashamed but didn't think she had a choice. The woman was allowed to testify only using her first name to protect her privacy. Raniere has pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and other charges. He insists his sexual encounters with followers were consensual. Copyr
