Direct Marketing – Telemarketing

In Direct Marketing Telemarketing is a very important role in the use of new information technologies applied to business development. This article hopes to make a brief statement of its most important features.

Telemarketing is a direct marketing strategy that seeks through the use of communication (especially telephone), personal way to reach different users by offering products or services to address the challenges of increasingly competitive markets, trying to time-saving marketing costs and improve the effectiveness of the introduction of products for sale.

The use of communication technologies to have a direct, efficient and fast user creates competitive advantages in the world of business “, replacing or complementing the use of traditional forms of communication with the client and the advertising staff, use direct sales or the need to have branches or special outlets. Generating added value to our customers will feel satisfied with the increased speed in the delivery of services with the convenience of travel to avoid being served in branches, outlets or department stores.

Advantages in the use of telemarketing:

A team of telemarketing is cheaper and more controllable than a group of sellers to avoid transport costs and food promotion. Another important factor is the current trend of declining costs of communication especially through the telephone costs and improves competition in the information systems.

When you have a database of large users (including preferences), it has the opportunity to customize services for people with the opportunity to respond timely and reliable by increasing the productivity and efficiency of the organization.

It is understood that to be a successful telemarketing department will be required characteristics:

Technology: Adequate communications, reliability, and speed. Database accurate and functional, along with specialized software logically and functionally.

Team Work: Need a good team “telemarketers”, with broad product knowledge, marketing skills and in the promotion.

Order: To personalize the service is properly needed to order requests, complaints or claims related to care and to be properly satisfied.

Speed key factor, often to consult by phone, we find boring songs, transfers to units that do not correspond to the needs or lack of staff, these inefficiencies away to customers and make them reluctant to use the phone to buy, view or find out the companies.

Promotion: Get to know the telemarketing service to users, seeking to demonstrate the ease, efficiency and user comfort.

What types of fish are considered Reef Fish?

There are many types of reef inhabiting ocean species, but not all of them are considered seafood. These are the reef bound seafood varieties that are sold by seafood exporters in Sri Lanka to be consumed:

Grouper: The grouper is a delicious variety that is found in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. They typically grow to be about two feet long and have white or cream-colored flesh. This is ideally made into a curry or grilled.
Snapper: The snapper is another popular type of seafood found in and near reefs that can be found in the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans. They typically grow to be about two feet long as well and has reddish-orange flesh. They are commonly eaten fried, baked, or even smoked.
Red Snapper: This is a beautiful, brightly coloured aquatic food source that can weigh up to 20 pounds and grow to be more than two feet long. They are typically found in the Gulf of Mexico and off the coast of Florida. Red snapper is considered a delicacy and is most commonly eaten fried, broiled, or blackened.
Tuna: This is a large fish that can grow to be six feet long and weigh more than 300 pounds! While they aren’t considered specifically as “reef fish,” they still reside on coral reefs and are therefore caught by fishermen targeting those areas. This means that you will find tuna on most menus at seafood restaurants that serve fish caught in such areas. Tuna is generally consumed grilled, seared, or blackened.
Marlin: The marlin, which is a part of the billfish family, is a large saltwater fish that can weigh up to 500 pounds and grow to be more than 14 feet long! They are found in tropical and subtropical waters all over the world. They are considered prized gamefish and are often caught for sport. Marlin is most commonly eaten grilled, blackened, or smoked.
Wahoo: The Wahoo is a sleek, fast-swimming aquatic animal that ranges in size from one to 150 pounds. They are typically found in warm waters near the surface of the ocean. Wahoo is considered a delicious delicacy and is most commonly eaten fried, baked, or as ceviche.
Mahi Mahi: This is another delicious saltwater variety that is found in tropical and subtropical waters all over the world. They can weigh up to 100 pounds and grow to be more than three feet long. Mahi Mahi is a popular gamefish and is most commonly eaten fried, baked, or grilled.
Cobia: Cobia is a large fish that can grow to be more than four feet long and weigh up to 150 pounds. It is typically found in warm coastal waters near the surface of the ocean. Cobia is a popular gamefish and is most commonly eaten grilled, blackened, or smoked.
Snook: Snook is a beautiful silver variety that can grow to be more than three feet long and weigh up to 30 pounds. It is typically found in coastal waters near the shoreline. Snook is a popular sportfish and is most commonly eaten grilled, smoked, or fried.
Triggerfish: These are a brightly coloured variety of seafood that can grow to be more than two feet long and weigh up to 15 pounds. They are typically found in reefs and rocky areas near the surface of the water. Triggerfish are popular gamefish and are most commonly eaten fried or grilled.

Reef fish are high in nutritional value and contain:

High levels of omega-three fatty acids.
Vitamins A and C.
High levels of selenium, which is a powerful antioxidant.

This type of seafood is all targeted for their meat by reliable seafood exporters in Sri Lanka, and they are considered a delicacy in many parts of the world. However, there are also many types of reef-dwelling aquatic species that people don’t eat. Some of these include the following:

Angelfish
Butterfly
Anthias

These types are not typically eaten because they do not have much meat on them. They are mostly caught for their fins and scales, which some people believe have medicinal properties, or for aquariums.

Reef fish live within coral reefs and are specially adapted to the bright, warm environment. They come in a wide variety of colours and shapes and can be found in both saltwater and freshwater environments.

These different aquatic varieties are important for keeping coral reefs healthy. They eat algae and other things that can damage or kill coral reefs. In addition, they provide food for larger animals that live on or around coral reefs.

There are many different types of reef fish, but some of the most common ones include:

Damselfish
Puffer
Parrotfish
Tangs
Grouper

These are considered reef fish because they rely on coral reefs for their survival. Without coral reefs, they would not be able to survive, and the coral reefs would be in danger of dying.

Your Mind’s Operating System / Online Marketing Part Two

This is part two of the same article. If you have not read Part One, please go back and do so, as the information is being developed from a basic position to a more advanced stage.

This article gives you basic online business ideas that can help you with your personal growth and development. Use it to generate positive movement through your personal endeavors and life path.

Remember to stay focused on “Happiness is your birthright.” For simplification let’s label any information affecting and entering our mind as message units. It is said today we receive over four hundred thousand of these message units daily. Think about not only what you consciously choose to read, watch, touch etc., but the many message units that bombard you without your conscious control. These units include words, thoughts, pictures, emotions, etc. that have created our personal files.

The human being receives message units or information into the conscious mind through four sources. The first source is the external environment, which are things like the music you are listening to, television you may be watching, or anything affecting you from everyday surroundings. The second source is the body itself; pains, discomforts, movements of the body, all sending information about these things to the brain. The third source is the conscious mind, handling our thinking process, our logic, decision making and all the factors affecting our conscious thoughts. The fourth source and probably the most important is the sub conscious mind, which receives and holds without accepting or rejecting the many message units we receive from our religious, social, and genetic backgrounds, and the many conflicts we face daily surrounding these areas.

You may be thinking at this moment, “How is all this information going to help me, to allow change in my life, to become useful and applicable?” Based on the explanation presented earlier of how the human mind has developed over thousands of years and how it operates in theory today, accept the following statement as a basic starting point. The larger part of your mind, the sub conscious, which is approximately 88 per cent of the whole mind, is where changes need to be made related to things put into its file system over many years. The sub conscious mind drives our behavior automatically, and reacts the way it has been programmed to do just like the computer mentioned earlier. It is the old cliché “Garbage in, garbage out.” Whatever you put in, you get out. This programming occurs in our infantile years through approximately the age of eight, before we are able to distinguish between right and wrong. A key point to be made is that the child’s sub conscious has no critical factor or logic. It will accept as truth any data entering its file system. This is why we as children are so quick to believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy. As children the message units go directly into the file room or the sub conscious mind. Remember the sub conscious mind has no logic or reasoning ability. It just accepts information given to it. Example: if you as a child were constantly teased about having big ears, and as an adult hear someone talking about big ears, even though they were not talking specifically about you, those words will trigger emotions in your mind about how you felt as a child hearing statements like that about you. Even though as an adult we can rationalize, that our ears were larger as a child as many of our body parts take some time to balance with one another, and as an adult know they are not any bigger than anyone else’s, you will still react mentally to that statement on a personal basis. Another example; as a child your parents constantly told you what a bad person you were, that you would never amount to anything. You hear this enough times and it creates a file. The file drives your behavior as you feel less than you should and ultimately creates the reality around you. Today as an adult you can consciously rationalize that you are doing well and have probably forgotten many of those negative situations, but if you were to critically evaluate your life, my guess would be that you are not who you want to be and probably question yourself as to why you do not seem to get the lucky breaks that others seem to.

The point being made is many of us, because of the poor direction given to us as children, with poorly worded and emotional statements repeatedly made to us, bombarding the mind in the form of message units have created what are called “files” in the sub conscious file system. These files of information drive our behavior automatically in many cases, and sometimes not in our best interests. The point to remember is that the file room has both positive and negative files of information. It depends on your specific life circumstances as to the ratio of one to the other. The function of the conscious mind is evaluation and comparison of the new idea to previously accepted information thus checking its credibility before allowing entrance into the file system or sub conscious mind. The sub conscious mind will only accept what the conscious mind believes at the time the suggestion is given. Since the sub conscious mind is the dominant and driving force, we generally follow what the sub conscious mind believes. This is another key point. Eighty eight per cent of the time, you are on automatic pilot, as you react to life, based on information in these files that started at birth and which developed through the formative years, birth through approximately eight years of age, creating your own and unique value system for decision making. The sub conscious is the storehouse of information related to desires, emotions, and the energy driving you to satisfy them. We always do what our sub conscious mind believes. In addition to storage of data, the sub conscious regulates the involuntary body functions such as circulation, breathing, digestion, etc. Understanding that our emotions govern the strength of our desires, we are literally at the whim of our sub conscious mind, unless we learn to control this strong part of our mind. The sub conscious mind in housing the emotions that regulate our desires, make a case for understanding that its input decides our path in decision making. The sub conscious has no discrimination and accepts information given to it as truth. It is also where our imagination resides, thus imagining or believing in failure, will produce that certain failure. Repetition of good or bad habits will instill in the sub conscious the files that will generate the automatic behavior we sometimes question.

Habits are also organized in the sub conscious where activities such as driving a car, playing sports, walking are all good examples of not needing to be in conscious mode to perform the specific activity. In fact these are all done easier and better if we do not think consciously about them. Do you think of which foot to place first as you start down a staircase? Of course not, if you did you would probably fall. The sub conscious mind does it automatically for you. Remember the sub conscious does not rationalize. It basically reacts using the data in the files. Another example of sub conscious behavior is driving a car. How many times have you been driving, say on a long trip, and found yourself day dreaming, to find you have gone some distance before you realize you were not mentally awake and rational in this experience, occasionally missing an exit due to this condition? Many of us can say yes to this question, as it is not an unusual occurrence. It is not unusual to enter this state and frame of mind two to three times a day based on today’s high stress levels and the environment around us. The knowledge that we were not involved in any kind of accident is based on the fact we were on automatic pilot, with our sub conscious driving for us. Let us throw some additional information into the mix, before we focus on the application of all this valuable information to literally change who you are, and where you choose to go in life. As the human mind evolved and developed over time, an important area, called the critical filter, emerged and gradually began to hold information from dumping directly into the sub conscious. This control allowed less information from going directly into the sub conscious mind without conscious mind involvement. This filter holds information or message units for approximately twenty four hours and will allow penetration into the sub conscious file room only if there are matching “knowns” in the file system. This filter develops approximately by the age of eight, and helps handle the multitude of message units we are bombarded with daily. For an easy approach in understanding the importance of the critical filter, look at the filter as a personal secretary that gathers information before taking the time to search out the corresponding files in the file room. Once the secretary gets involved and starts to search out matching files and adds information to them, the file becomes thicker. In cases where the secretary finds no matching file to deposit information, the information is rejected. The message units or information not relevant to the file system are discarded; many in the form of dreams. We are going to rely heavily on the critical filter or secretary to help us as we start the actual Training Wheels for Mental Fitness Program, using our training wheels approach. You will see later as we progress into the actual process of Mind Fitness development, how this programming tool works with the secretary or the critical filter, in opening and allowing entry into the sub conscious file room on a direct basis. Bear in mind, it is the sub conscious we want to interact with directly. This is the part of your mind where changes need to be made for long term use and benefit. The paradigm or working model works in this manner. Message units enter the conscious mind first, and are then held in the critical filter area. Remember this as your personal secretary’s desk where information is held for filing. Here they accumulate and are on hold for use. This area is both conscious and sub conscious because we have been educated to develop an analytical sense for evaluation on the conscious level. At the same time we have learned on the sub conscious level to avoid anything that is critical or threatening to us. The critical area or personal secretary will not analyze message units as long as the conscious mind is present, only when sleep takes place and the conscious mind is off will the process develop. This is the only time when the conscious mind will not try to hold on to them. Interestingly, if too many message units accumulate in the critical filter, you will find your body getting tired and sleepy. The more emotional traumas a person is undergoing in their life, the stronger the tendency will be to be tired and sleepy. Sleep is an integral part of this total process as this is when the mind vents or releases needless information.

Much of the information that could not be filed because matching files were not found will be discarded in the form of dreams. You may not always remember your dreams, but it is known that all of us dream. Dreams are known to be a venting process that helps eliminate or discard the many message units that are not matched up within the file system, or needed by the mind. During sleep, the accumulated message units are then dropped into the sub conscious mind for analysis. Here the secretary is hard at work looking for the matching file. Keep in mind that the sub conscious mind has no rationale, thus allowing both positive and negative message units to be filed in their respective files. This works to your benefit with a program such as ours that allows you to program the necessary information for positive mind development and the achievement of long term success.

All of the previous information is designed to give you a grass roots foundation for understanding the basic theory of your mind’s dynamics. It is designed to help you lay the groundwork for the system of positive change that will bring more success to your life. The basic premise is “Happiness is your birthright”. If you are one of those who have not reached the levels of success aspired to, if you wish you could become a stronger, more confident person, if things do not always go the way you would want them to, then what follows is paramount to understand. “You can be whomever you want to be, you can achieve any level of personal or business success you desire, and you can do most anything you can visualize because you have the ability to set up your own file system for success”. Understanding the material presented earlier gives you the foundation to change what is called your life script, or the file system within your sub conscious mind. Follow through on “Happiness is your birthright”. It is within your personal control through planning, dedication, and the responsibility to follow through on the achievement of your goals.
