What do you like to do after your flight to Australia ?

After getting off their flight to Australia, older holidaymakers particularly enjoy getting involved in cultural activities, it has been suggested.

This is according to a new study by Saga Holidays which indicates that people over the age of 50 would rather spend time learning about new cultures than lie on a beach to get a tan.

Some 32 per cent of respondents say they look forward to experiencing new ways of life when going on holiday, while seven per cent are keen to meet new people.

Commenting on the findings, Andrew Goodsell, executive chairman of the Saga Group – which recently found that Minis are particularly popular cars with older people – said that many older tourists are “great adventurers” who enjoy gaining an insight into their holiday destinations.

“It’s no surprise to us that they seek adventure and new cultures. Good food, good company and active sightseeing around the world are great contributors to that healthy and uplifting feeling that is more important than just catching the rays,” he added.

Therapy for Your Sinus Infection Symptoms

Sinus is a cavity in the skull that connects to the nostril. Inflammation or redness that occurs in the sinuses are sinus infection symptoms due to the blockage of air. The other name of sinus infection is sinusitis. Other sinus infection symptoms include nasal congestion with discharge or postnasal drip, pain or pressure around the inner corner of the eye or down one side of the nose, headache in the temple or surrounding the eye. Pain or pressure symptoms are worse when coughing, straining, or lying on the back and better when the head is upright

Sinus infection is of two types- acute and chronic. Sinus infection symptoms may be similar for both types but treatment differs for each type. To get proper treatment for your sinus infection symptoms, consult your doctor and get diagnosed properly. The doctors prescribe various types of medicines and antibiotics. But these medicines do not necessarily have a long effect on the body. Then at that situation, the different kinds of sinus cure therapy should be adopted to cure sinus pain permanently.

Why Social Networking Your Way Won’t Build Your Business

Believe it or not, social networking isn’t the next best thing… You are! It’s the personal connection that still seals the deal.

The Internet, social networking, and other breakthroughs in technology have fundamentally changed the way we do business. New technology drives communications, messaging, and information access at warp speed, and our clients expect immediate access. This pattern of ever-increasing speed and sophistication not only creates an intensely competitive marketplace, but places further demands on us to act and react quickly.

The rise of social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube, and LinkedIn have lured many sales pros into scaling back their personal interactions and relying on social media to get more “qualified leads.”

It’s time to get real!

Social Media Is a Powerful Tool for Three Things and Three Things Only

1. Search engine optimization: Use your key words and raise your presence on the web.

2. Find out who people are: Learn about a person’s background and your connections.

3. Find out who people know: Look for close connections that you can leverage

Some salespeople tell me they actually get clients through social media. Well, maybe if you have a commodity business.

Could it happen?

Yes.

Do I rely on it?

Absolutely not! I only count on what I bring about-through a proactive, intentional, referral strategy with personal introductions.

Why Social Networking Your Way Won’t Bring You More Leads and Sales

The most important business decisions are still based on personal relationships. There is significant research about why customers make buying decisions. Bottom line: It’s because they like and trust the salesperson and his organization. Think about it. We’re selling services, investments, systems, products… we’re asking for people’s time and money! Why would they work with someone who hasn’t been referred?

There’s a saying in sales: Clients buy with emotion and justify with fact. If our clients don’t like us or don’t feel comfortable with us, they won’t buy from us. You can wow your clients with technology know-how now and try to win them over later, once they find out you’re honest and reliable. But the reality is you need people to start liking you within the first few seconds of your relationship. You need to start off on the right foot. Fancy gizmos won’t make that happen. But a trusted referral and a personal connection will.

That’s why Eric Schmidt, Chairman and CEO of Google, in his commencement address to the graduating class of the University of Pennsylvania in May 2009, urged college graduates to step away from the virtual world and make human connections. “Turn off your computer. You’re actually going to have to turn off your phone and discover all that is human around us.”

That said, a social media presence is a must-have in today’s world-but you need to change the way you’re social networking.

3 Ways to Get More Leads and Sales with Social Networking and Referral Marketing

1. Develop a social media strategy: Like a sales plan or a marketing plan, write your social media plan. What is your goal? Who is your audience? What do you want to communicate? Leverage social media as part of your go-to-market strategy. How does your strategy link to your customer’s needs and your business priorities?

2. Establish relationships: Take the time to build your personal connections, pick up the phone and talk to people. Just because you have a name in hand, doesn’t mean you have a relationship.

3. Communicate useful information: Social sites are not for selling. They are for establishing connections, identifying ways to collaborate, and providing value. What tips can you provide? Link to other sites you strongly recommend. Get recognized as the expert and build your web presence. Be a resource.

To Trust You Paves the Way

The most energizing and exciting part of our work is the relationships with our clients-the interaction. We enjoy learning about our client’s business and matching our solutions to their needs. In an era dominated by ever-expanding technology and social media pressures, always remember that personal connections, referrals, and earning trust count most.
