Email Marketing vs. Push Notifications

Email Marketing vs. Push Notifications

by Khirol HazwanJune 9, 2017

It has long been said that email marketing is the most cost-efficient method of digital marketing. This is because the costs associated with email marketing lie almost completely in three points: list acquisition, cost of email hosting and tools, and composition costs. After you get past the first point, scaling an email marketing campaign comes at virtually zero marginal cost: it costs just as much to market to a list of 100 contacts as it does to market to a list of 10,000 contacts.

However, there is now another marketing method that has the potential to be even more cost-effective than email, and that is push notifications.

Push notifications are messages that a mobile app can send to the main message center of people’s mobile phones even when they are not using the app. Anyone who has ever used the Starbucks mobile app knows what this looks like.

Benefits Over Email

There are at least five things about push notifications that make them even more powerful than emails as a marketing channel:

Interruption Value

One of the most important things that any marketing campaign needs to do is interrupt the viewer’s daily routine and thought processes. You are asking people to make a decision that departs from the plan of their lives. You are asking them to, essentially, take a risk on you. It is a risk because they do not absolutely know that the value you deliver will truly be worth what they will pay you.

Push notifications interrupt more effectively than emails because they go directly to the main message center of the user’s mobile device. The notification is usually accompanied by a sound of some sort, and it is highly visible and prominent whenever the user goes to do anything on his or her phone. It remains there until it is actively tapped or dismissed.

Compare this to emails, which may go to the junk folder or, in the case of Gmail, the “Promotions” tab. And even when they do show up in the main inbox folder, they are often accompanied by various other emails from other sources and are therefore easy to ignore.

A Mobile Focus

Everything is going mobile now. Google has adopted a mobile-first mentality. Mobile searches are exceeding desktop searches. People live on their phones. They also spend the majority of their time on phones using mobile apps rather than web browsers. A marketing strategy that does not take mobile outreach into account is an outdated strategy.

Facilitation of E-Commerce

Marketers who use custom mobile apps to send out push notifications can tie those push notifications to an online ordering platform within the app that can have the user’s pre-saved information there already. Tapping the push notification can take the app user directly to a screen that is already populated with both the specifics of the given offer and the user’s payment information. Making purchasing easy in this way significantly increases the conversion rate of marketing messages.

Geofencing

Email marketers can set their emails to go out at a specific time in the future. This can be done with push notifications as well. In addition to that, though, marketers can set push notifications to go out only to app users within a specific geographical area. This can be done either by defining a specific point and putting a radius around that point or by defining multiple points on a map to create a polygon.

Geofencing is beneficial for a few reasons. First, it allows you to make offers specific to certain areas or regions. This is particularly useful if you are doing marketing for a business with multiple locations and you want to be able to make different offers by location. Second, it allows you to encourage impulse purchases. For example, you can set an offer to go out between the hours of 11:00 and 1:00 on Monday through Wednesday within a short radius of a restaurant. This push notification can say something like: Come in for lunch today and get a free dessert! People may see it while driving by the location, and since they are already right there, they will have a high tendency of reacting to it and coming in.

 

Community Building

Unlike an email list or a website, an app that uses push notifications has a high capability of helping to build a sense of community among customers. Combined with other app features such as an event list and message boards, push notifications can help to build massive network effects, turning coffeehouses into artist colonies and average nightclubs into bustling nightclubs. Rather than simply receiving messages, app users are being engaged in multiple interlocking ways – and permitted to reach out and engage with others through the same app.

As an example, if you have a live musical performance occurring at your place of business, you can set push notifications to go out to app users who are in the vicinity. People who frequently respond to similar event notifications will begin to build strong relationships with each other, and this will lead to more business as network effects bring them back to the location again and again.

The Catch?

There is a catch to push notifications, though. Just as the catch with email marketing is that you need to build a strong and legitimate mailing list, the catch with an app is that you need to get subscribers to download and install the app. As with email marketing, though, you can do this by driving traffic to landing pages where people can download your app. The methods of doing this are basically the same methods that apply to email marketing: PPC ads, Facebook posts, and the main button on your Facebook page. You can even send a blast out to your existing email list, as downloading your app will help your contacts to ascend to a higher level of engagement.

Another catch is the question of cost. It is a relatively simple and cheap thing to set up an email marketing campaign through MailChimp or the like, but a custom mobile app can easily cost tens of thousands of dollars to develop. Once this hurdle has been crossed, however, the marketing potential that a custom-branded app brings to a business is incredible.

Surviving in the Woods

by Khirol HazwanJune 7, 2017

The wood, though rich in wildlife and anything related to nature, can be a dangerous and catastrophic destination for your camping trip. Should you decide that your next camping destination be in the woods, heed extreme caution.

A lot of things can happen in the woods, from any form of wildlife being out to get you to any sickness being carried by countless organisms inflicted on to the unsuspecting victim that is you. In order to survive, if ever you find yourself stuck in the middle of the woods with no hope of rescue, here are some things that can help you do so.

1.  Research the Terrain

Before you even think about going to the woods to camp, make sure that you research on anything about the land you’re about to set foot on. Anything you find can prove useful to you in times of crises such as the abundance of plants both edible and toxic, any wild animals to steer clear of, and even the nearest roads to help you find your way back home.

2.  Take Necessary Precautions

Anything from putting on spraying yourself with anti-bug spray to packing any item that can serve as your weapon of choice. It never hurts to pack everything and anything you think you may need. Even if it is generally deemed unnecessary, who knows, that item may save your life if ever.

Also, any precaution you take is extremely vital to your survival, especially when it comes to basic knowledge on fending off wild animals. If ever you’ve learned how to fend off predators such as wolves or bears before you set out, then rest assured you’ll be fine.

3.  Find a Nearby Source of Water

In order to stay alert at all times in the wild, keeping yourself hydrated is a definite must. Though you may bring your own pack of water, your supply of it will dwindle in time. To ensure that you stay hydrated, find a nearby source of water for you to drink. Once you’ve found your water source, camp out there for your convenience.

Another thing you should learn regarding this is how to purify water to make it safe for you to drink. Purifying water is a skill that can prove vital to your survival as though you may have found a suitable source of water, even rainwater, you never know if it’s really safe from bacteria or any other elements of harm. Drinking without purifying can have disastrous consequences.

4.  Learn How to Build Shelter

When you’re out in the woods, building shelter is an essential skill for you to learn. Even when building a tent or a makeshift one, you’ll have to learn the necessary fundamentals in establishing a strong campsite for you to survive in. Make sure your shelter is able withstand some elements such as strong winds or rain and is able to keep standing for certain periods of time.

5.  Learn How to Make a Campfire

Above all else, staying warm is key to your survival. When your body is at its warmest temperature, not only will you stay alert, but also ensure your safety by decreasing the chances of suffering frostbite or hypothermia due to the cold temperatures of the night. For this, make sure to learn of the many ways to start a fire, with different kinds of kindling to fire starters.

The woods can be frightening to many. However, if you’re equipped with the necessary skills to survive, you will definitely come out okay.

What You Need to Know in Buying Your First Condo

by Khirol HazwanApril 29, 2017

Making a big and expensive purchase is always nerve-wracking. There are too many variables for you to consider before making a decision. In fact, there is famous financial advice regarding big purchases; and it is to completely think over it for at least 30 days—for you to learn whether you really want to do it in the end.

For many people, big purchases could entail different things such as a car, a dream vacation, a house and lot, or a condominium unit; although numerous individuals, who belong in the younger generation, find themselves investing in a condo unit instead of the other things.

Usually, these people love the idea of settling and living in a compactand convenient setting. If you’re one of these people and you’re thinking of purchasing a condo, then you might want to consider these things first and foremost:

 

Carefully read through the association rules

Every condominium management can have different and distinct association rules. This is why it is important for you to read every association rule in every place you plan on checking into. You want to understand all the rules in the place you are planning on settling in. It will not bode well for you to finally sign the lease only to find out you don’t like the rules and regulations they are enforcing in your building.

 

Learn all about the association fees

One important factor you have to understand, when it comes to deciding to buy a condo unit, is that there are association fees you need to pay for at least every month. You need to know about them beforehand so that you can plan ahead for a proper budget. There’s really no need for you to wait up until you are comfortably living in your unit before figuring this out.

Furthermore, you got to learn all the facilities you are paying for in your association fees. Does it include security, a gym, a swimming pool, and other recreational areas?

This is important to know about since you want your money to be put in good use as well as utilize all the possible facilities available to you for free.

 

Be knowledgeable about what your condo might include

Apart from the association fee, you need to learn about your entire purchase. Are you really only paying for just your condo unit? Does it not include additional storage spaces? What about parking, is that being provided to you with your condo unit?

These questions are important to ask. Don’t be shy asking the salesperson you are talking to in purchasing your condo unit. For sure, they are happy to help you understand these things.

Secure that your building is insured

No one really likes to be negative when making a huge purchase; everyone wants their investments to pull through. However, it is always nice to prepare for the worst case scenarios. By doing this, you will not be caught off guard—which is why you must ensure that your building in insured for different kinds of emergencies, such as fire and earth quake.

All these items listed above are important factors you must consider before buying your very first condo unit. Keep these things in mind and you’ll find you have a lot less things to worry about in the future!

Ways On How to Get Yourself a Job Effortlessly

by Khirol HazwanApril 29, 2017

Are you one of those individuals who wants to get employedeasily on a business or a company without exerting too much effort, but no avail? Whether you want to be hired in an up-to-date digital marketing business, a thriving information technology company, or in the growingBPO industry, there are several ways and factorsthat you must follow and use to be a part of your chosen enterprise.

 

Save Time in Job Searching by Using Advanced Search Options

Everybody knows that little “Advanced Search”option in every job board sites, but literally ignores it for some reason. Little do they know how helpful and useful this “Advance Search” optionis.

The Advance Search option is a feature that enables you to search by keyword, location, job title, company, type of job, and the date the job position was posted. By using the Advance Search option, you are then ensuring that you will find a job easily since you will be searching for the exact matches that you want for a job.

 

Applying for Every Job Is Not Advisable

Though it is totally okay to apply for a number of jobs when you are in the job searching phase. However, applying for every job posting you see in the newspaper or the internet is not always a good idea. Try focusing your search in jobs that you know you are qualified for. By doing this, the chances are high that you are going to be invited for an interview. Remember that sending your resume to random companies is different from job hunting. This is why you should always take your time to decide what type of job you are seeking.

In line with these, it is also better if you create a list of companies you’d like to be part of. Do your best to get noticed by presenting yourself polished and professional both online and in person.

 

Don’t Stop Applying for Jobs

Some people will ultimately stop applying for jobs the moment they have applied and responded for several job postings. However, this should definitely not be the case. Today, majority of the job seekers today are rejected by a number of employers before they finally land a job. What you should do is to continuously apply and send resumes to different businesses and companies.The possible outcome of this scenario is that you will be juggling numerous job offers, which is a good thing.

 

Never Underestimate the Power of a Cover Letter

You may have an astounding resume, but the absence of a simple cover letter can result in your resume be overlooked by the businesses and companies that you applied for. This is why crafting a cover letter is an important factor in getting yourself a job. Some businesses and companies screen every applicants’ application forms personally, and often times looks and checks the applicants’ cover letter. For this reason, creating a cover letter for your resume is recommendable if you are going to a job hunting session.

 

Make Sure You Have Updated Your Resume

Aside from your cover letter, you should also edit and tweak your resume at its finest form. Make sure your resume is free from grammatical errors and updated. By doing this, your application may have a high chance to get picked up by applicant tracking systems that businesses and companies use in screening resumes.

However, updating your resume does not mean that you should include all your past experiences on it. Choosing relevant and up-to-date information about yourself and your work experiences will definitely make an employer or recruiter be attracted to your resume.

 

Key Takeaway

These guidelines may help you in acquiring a job effortlessly fast. However, remember that there is no easy way in finding and acquiring a job.But by beingprofessional, and at the same time, being yourself, you are ensured that you will find yourself a job that you love.

5 Must Have Tools for Any Architecture Student

by Khirol HazwanApril 19, 2017

 

Being a student in one of the universities in Manilais no easy task. This fact is especially true if you are taking architecture as a course. You truly are going to need all the help that you can get. So, you better start going to all your classes and pay a really close attention to your professors.

But there are more to being an architecture student aside from always being present to all you classes. You must also learn how to use specific tools, which you are going to need soon or in the near future.

To help you out, here are some tools you might want to take note of:

Drafting Board

 

Every architecture student will go through a series of classes on plates and drafting, this is a board you’ll be needing from day 1 till you graduate. Make sure to invest in a drafting board and parallel bar you’re comfortable using and bringing around because they will be your best group mate in all of your drafting classes. Don’t even think of defending for your T-square, those are for amateurs look like a real architect with a drafting board on your table.

Pens and Pencils

This has to almost be a no brainer for any architecture student. Don’t just get typical pens and pencils as you would for notes, architecture requires more than that. This calls for a proper pen drawing kit, one that gives you different pens based on size and type. This could be felt tips, finelinersor even color pens, the different types of pens have their own purposes such as scribbling and color coding.

Drafting Lamp

You’ll need a good lamp for those late nights you’re going to spend bent over the drafting table. Especially late at night or in poorly lit rooms, you shouldn’t let these circumstances prevent you from making your deadlines. Choose a lamp with an LED bulb to properly illuminate your work area.

Calculator

Whether math skills are the most important skill set you need in order to get through this course is up for debate. Not saying you won’t need it, being good with number is definitely a plus and there will be some subject s that will require you to be. A calculator can help you out with that, specifically a construction calculator. It’s a luxury you should make sure you can afford, you will save yourself a lot of trouble.

Set Square, Curves and Stencils

Even with the rise of many programs that bring architecture to life in your computer you will still need to learn the basics and first form of architecture. You will be sure to face some classes that will require you to hand draw plates. You’re going to need set squares, curves and stencils this will help you create cleaner and sharper lines for your plates. Think of it as a cheat code for drawing, no longer will you see messy and shaky lines on your plates.

Architecture courses require a lot of late nights and hard work. These tools are meant to assist you just for those moments but it doesn’t mean you have these tools you’re ready to conquer the architecture course. A tool is useless if the user has no knowledge how to use them, time to hit the books and equip yourself with these tools and information.

6 Life Lessons Kids Can Learn while Camping

by Khirol HazwanApril 5, 2017

Today, there are so much outdoor recreational activities for families to choose from. A few examples of them, which you can partake in the Philippines, are glamping, mountain biking, hiking, birdwatching, parasailing, and windsurfing. Parents will be glad to hear that most of them are kid-friendly, which means they can take them this summer to enjoy themselves.

However, it is important to note that when it comes to kid-friendliness, nothing beats a classic camping trip. After all, it teaches them several significant life lessons, such as:

The importance of planning

Every camping trip starts with proper planning and preparation. Teach your kids the importance of strategy and goal setting by discussing the details of your camping trip with them. Include them with you in deciding about the food you will eat, the location of your campsite, the necessary supplies you need to take with you, as well as the games you are going to play once you have settled.

 

Teamwork

Teamwork is necessary during camping trips, particularly since there is a lot of work that needs to be done like setting up on camping grounds. Let them help you with things such as pitching up your tent (or RV), unpacking all your stuff, and placing them in ideal spots. By doing this, you are teaching them the value of teamwork and taking initiatives when helping others.

 

Personal responsibility

Personal

Campsites can run rugged every once in a while, particularly when you are busy with other activities, which is completely fine and understandable. But be sure to tidy it up especially before you go to sleep. Ask your kids to be accountable for their things. This will educate them to be responsible early on. It will also instil them how to be tidy in their surroundings.

 

Unplugging can be fun

Kids these days seem to always be in front of television, computer, smartphones, or tablet screens. Basically, it is their way of having fun but bringing them to a camping trip – which essentially renders these new technologies as useless – will teach them that there are actually other ways of having fun. Introduce them to old games you used to play on the streets when you were younger.

 

Be appreciative

 

Camping trips are the perfect time to teach your children to live with fewer things. Show them how air conditioners are not a necessity they really need in life. Tell them how lucky they are to have these luxuries. If you show them this, they will immediately become appreciative of things like electricity, hot showers, and running water.

 

Respect nature

Respect nature

Mother Nature is the reason why camping trips are memorable. Educate your children about its importance in the world. Tell them that the environment deserves to be protected. Teach them simple ways to value it. One example is to always be responsible for the trash on your campsite. Be sure to show them a good example in this regard.

 

Remember that your kids will look up to you when they don’t know what to do during your camping trip. Be sure to provide them a good example when you do so. You should, after all, practice what you preach!

5 Tips on How To Avoid a Hangover

5 Tips on How To Avoid a Hangover

by Khirol HazwanApril 5, 2017

Drinking is a pastime enjoyed by many all around the world, several brands are staple in the drinking industry like Guinness, Belvedere, or the world famous Jack Daniels. The Philippines is one such country that enjoys the occasional drink of beer or rum; you can even see alcoholics drink right on the street. Truly, drinking is an enjoyable pastime but the enemy of drinkers is the hangover that comes the morning after. Sure, drinking has its pros and cons but a hangover can definitely outweigh the pros. Drinkers always looked for a cure to the infamous hangover, some worked while some didn’t; but why cure something that you can actually prevent?

If you want proven tips on how to avoid hangovers, here’s a list of them:

#1. Burgers Over Salads

 If you’re eating before having a drink, eat burgers instead of salads; this relates to how you actually metabolize alcohol (which is affected by what you eat). An expert in alcohol research says that eat food that are high in carbs, proteins, and amino acids before you take your first sip of alcohol, they help process the ugly byproducts of alcohol, therefore lessening the chances of having a hangover the morning after.

 

#2. REST UP

 Before you go to a night out of drinking and partying, make sure to get a good sleep to refresh your body. Going to a night out without rest will directly affect your body’s response to alcohol intake; while having a good rest before going out will help your immunity to alcohol and having a refreshed body will make you last a little longer.

 

#3. Bring Gatorade

 While drinking, your body dehydrates faster because alcohol actually causes you to pee more than usual, to replenish the fluids you lost, most would recommend drinking water in between drinking alcohol; although true, sipping gatorade or coconut water is actually a better substitute to water because they replace the fluids and at the same time replace the nutrients you lose while drinking. Doing this will not only help you avoid dehydration but also prevents you from having a nasty headache after drinking.

 

#4. Splurging On A Night Out

 This may sound unnecessary and expensive but if you really hate hangovers, you need to pay the price; buying high-end alcoholic drinks will help you prevent hangovers because top-shelf drinks are filtered more thoroughly than cheap drinks which can lessen the possibility of having a hangover. Also, the price will make you sip it slowly, therefore actually lessening the alcohol that you intake.

 

#5. Drink Water Before Sleeping

 If you forgot to drink water while having a night out, make sure to drink it before you sleep because too much of the bad kind (alcohol) will definitely give you a hangover. So, try to drink as much of the good kind (water) as you can, BUT remember that don’t overdrink water because this will put unnecessary stress on your body and actually make you sleep less because of the bathroom breaks while sleeping. Always drink a glass or two before you sleep to have more of the good kind rather than the bad stuff.

Drinking will always be enjoyable but what people always forget is to drink moderately, having to much of something is bad for you, even if you want it. So, try to keep in mind what’s shown here and hopefully, you’ll never have a hangover ever again.
