How to Get 1,034 Email Subscribers in Two Months Using Emotional Triggers

How to Get 1,034 Email Subscribers in Two Months Using Emotional Triggers

Seth Godin said in an interview a couple of years ago that everyone should start a blog. The first thing I thought to myself was “Yeah right! As if I have anything useful to share with anyone”. Fast forward a couple of years down the road and I find myself writing a blog post that grew my e-mail list from 0 to 1000 within two months. And here is how I started. When I first did some research on how to start a blog that people would actually want to…

2016: The year Facebook became the bad guy

2016: The year Facebook became the bad guy

Facebook numbs us.  It’s supposed to: As an app and social network, it offers an unending feed of comforting memories, photos from friends and updates from trusted brands. (“Not enjoying pooping at work?” Let Charmin help.) But we felt a little sting in 2016, when Facebook, despite its best efforts, became political — an institution with far more power than many of us once recognized. It was the bad guy in an era that felt like a dystopic movie. It plotted to expand its internet service empire, giving us a…

The year in football: highs and lows of 2016 – from Allardyce to Zlatan

The year in football: highs and lows of 2016 – from Allardyce to Zlatan

The year 2016 was a terrific one for the Premier League and a terrible 12 months for English football. Leicester City’s title success was every bit the fairy story, the perfect antidote to long held and justifiable fears that ordinary clubs could no longer dream of glory as the bigger institutions and the Champions League elite had effectively ringfenced all the prizes worth winning. The Foxes’ achievement was all the more remarkable for being totally unexpected, not just for the above reasons but because of the struggle against relegation the…

The Unique Bill Murray Technique for Saying “YES”

The Unique Bill Murray Technique for Saying “YES”

I can’t say “No”. If people ask me for something, it’s really hard for me to balance their needs with my own. Like, if I need to spend time with my kids. Or I need to read or work on writing or business. But people are asking me to do X, Y, or Z. This is why I had to write a book, “The Power of NO“. Because of my many problems saying no and taking care of myself. But then Bill Murray taught me by example how to say…

New York – Paris Flight Diverts to Ireland So Passengers Can Use the Bathroom

New York – Paris Flight Diverts to Ireland So Passengers Can Use the Bathroom by Gary Leff on December 28, 2016 The Christmas Day departure of British Airways subsidiary OpenSkies flight BA8004 from Newark to Paris diverted to Shannon, Ireland for a bathroom break. All toilets on the plane failed over the Atlantic and with 172 people on board that’s an emergency. So they made a pit stop, taxiing directly to the terminal to allow passengers to use the airport facilities.. A maintenance crew serviced the lavatories and the plane…

HOLIDAY FEELINGS

HOLIDAY FEELINGS

Posted on December 27th 2016 by THEFASHIONGUITAR What I love most about the Holidays is spending time with my family, eating all the food I love, drinking my favorite Champagne, and watch every single Christmas movie, until I fall asleep on the couch. Luckily I found a man who loves to do the same, so every year our planning is pretty straight forward. We do the above mentioned, we both do our part – he does the…

7 Content Marketing Techniques That Will Boost Your Audience Engagement

7 Content Marketing Techniques That Will Boost Your Audience Engagement

“Content is anything that adds value to the reader’s life.” – Avinash Kaushik Engagement is gold. When your customers comment, like, or share your content, they’re telling you that your brand is providing value in a sea of white noise. Earning customer engagement isn’t easy, though. It takes creativity, consistency, and a unified effort from everyone in your marketing team. At times, it can be downright exhausting. Although striving to create engaging content is very demanding and challenging, those who do it right find that it’s worth it. Whether your…

How the Rhymes of Dr. Seuss Taught Us Language

How the Rhymes of Dr. Seuss Taught Us Language

Kaptain Kristian’s latest explainer video is a fun one: he explains how the anapestic tetrameter rhyming style of Dr. Seuss helped us better understand language as kids, all while rhyming in the video himself. It’s stupidly catchy (obviously, because it’s done in the style of Dr. Seuss) and so easy to listen to, which is the point because that catchiness and fun is basically a trick Dr. Seuss books used to make us all want to read on our own.

Ep. 199: Gretchen Rubin – Where Happiness Hides…

“When did you decide to go from being a lawyer to a full-time writer?” I asked Gretchen Rubin. She wrote the #1 New York Times bestseller, “The Happiness Project.” She worked for The Supreme Court. “I was surrounded by people who loved law. They were reading law on the weekends. They were talking about law at lunch time. They just loved, loved, loved law. And I knew that I didn’t.” I felt pain in my legs. That’s the feeling I had in my body the last time I was miserable…

Struggling Oldham urgently seek a solution to their Boxing Day blues

Struggling Oldham urgently seek a solution to their Boxing Day blues

Hats off to Oldham Athletic’s captain, Peter Clarke, for attempting to sweeten a dog’s dinner this week. A sprinkling of optimism is sorely needed around Boundary Park where the club’s chairman, Simon Corney, was in such a steaming funk after elimination from the FA Cup by non-league Lincoln City on 5 December that he cancelled the club’s Christmas party. Oldham are bottom of League One, winless in seven league matches, subject to a transfer embargo and due to play at second-place Sheffield United on Boxing Day. But Clarke, keen to…

The Latest Trends in Native Advertising (and How to Avoid Scams)

The Latest Trends in Native Advertising (and How to Avoid Scams)

Native advertising isn’t really a new trend. Ads that ‘mask’ themselves by matching the surrounding content, date back to the beginning of the 20th century. However, their true rise on the Internet has started only in 2015 when The New York Times and some other major publications started to experiment with sponsored posts. Today, we can see native ads everywhere and their variety, as well as the number,  is growing by the day. This niche has created numerous profitable opportunities for publishers, ad developers, and brands, but regular consumers don’t…

Ep. 198: Dan Ariely – Creating “A True, Deep Sense of Accomplishment”

Dan Ariely was burned all over his body. He lived in the hospital for years. He grew up there. Now he writes about pain. And irrationality. And meaning. He had nerve damage from the burns. And no skin to protect himself from pain. The nurses rip off his bandages. He begged them to peel them off gently.   They wouldn’t. He wanted less pain and more relief. They did it quick for peace of mind. Not his. Theirs. Dan calls this “irrational behavior.” He says, “being irrational are the cases…

Will American Relent Too? by Gary Leff on December 21, 2016 On June 1 the oneworld alliance (which includes airlines like American, British Airways, Iberia, Cathay Pacific, Qantas, and more) changed its policies so that member airlines no longer had to check bags to their final destination for passengers traveling on more than one reservation on a oneworld airline.

WATCHING YOU…

Posted on December 19th 2016 by THEFASHIONGUITAR One of this year’s returning topics was my search for “The Perfect Watch”. A watch that truly suits me, my style, and the way I intend to wear it – which is not necessarily as a time-piece, but more as a piece of jewelry. And during this so-called search, I’ve been 100% open-minded, I literally tried any kind of style you can think of: two watches with a double strap, watches…
