Naming the Sunday Newsletter

first_img Essential Reading! Get my 3rd book: Eat Their Lunch “The first ever playbook for B2B salespeople on how to win clients and customers who are already being serviced by your competition.” Buy Now Mostly I name things what they are. When I started writing a daily blog post, I named it thesalesblog.com because I knew it would help build traffic from people who searched for sales blogs. When I started the podcast, I wanted to give it a more meaningful name, so I went with President Richard Nixon’s favorite quote from a speech given by another President, Theodore Roosevelt:“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”I named the podcast In the Arena, now number 13 in Business on iTunes, and now you know why.I started publishing the Sunday newsletter five years ago, following Chris Brogan, who started sending his on Sunday mornings. Chris had much improved open rates by sending his newsletter on a day when no one else sent one. A lot of people adopted this approach.I named the Sunday Newsletter because it is a newsletter that I publish on Sunday. The name is factual and accurate, but as a name goes, doesn’t do much more. To give it a little more oomph, I have decided to provide it a real name. From now on, this newsletter will be called: While You Were Sleeping.The idea here is, as the kids would say, is being “woke.” (proper tense, be damned). It’s the opposite of being asleep.Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, awakens. – Carl Junglast_img read more

More digital ticketing options for Metro commuters soon

first_imgMumbai Metro One Private Limited (MMOPL) will soon roll out all features of its online ticketing system, Skiiip Q, on Paytm and is expecting more and more commuters to use mobile ticketing options in the coming months. “Mumbai Metro One brought the mobile payment system in Metro ticketing for the first time in India. All the products will soon be available on one of the most widely accepted payment wallet companies: Paytm. We are hopeful that our commuters will benefit from this ticketing option,” an MMOPL spokesperson said. Skiiip Q generates a QR code that can be scanned at the automatic fare collection (AFC) gates to gain access to Metro stations. It was launched in November 2017 on two apps, Ridlr and Paytm. While the former had all the features of Skiiip Q, the latter was limited to journey passes and return tickets. The company recently introduced trip-based passes and is currently testing store value passes, which are likely to be launched in the first week of August.Skiiip Q has been gaining popularity, and the company hopes to have more 50,000 users by the end of the year. In June 2018, around 25,000 passengers were using the app, as against 3,500 users after the first month of its launch.According to MMOPL, nearly 70% of commuters were using Skiiip Q on Paytm, while overall use of the app across all ticketing options — cards, tokens and Skiiip Q — is around 6%. The company has set a target of 15% for the end of the year. MMOPL said use of card-based ticketing was the highest among the three, and hopes that by introducing the options on Paytm, more commuters will switch to the mobile app. At present, only 2% of card-based commuters are using Skiiip Q. The company has engaged two sales promoters at Andheri and Ghatkopar Metro stations during peak hours to assist commuters with the new technology. MMOPL also plans to include it in its corporate contact programme.last_img read more

Hey Girl, I See What Your Nonprofit Is Doing

first_imgBy tapping into the #tigerblood hashtag, Zachary reported that tons of media outlets picked up on the story, resulting in a modest increase in blood donations.So what’s in it for you? Why should you consider making a meme? 1. Sure, memes can be just plain silly and fun, and but they can also humanize your nonprofit’s public image. Who doesn’t love an organization that embraces its humanity and sense of humor? 2. Memes can create connections and start conversations because of their two-prong premise: A meme is based on an aspect of popular culture and spread from person to person. 3. Memes give supporters an easy way to publicize and promote your cause. Once you create a meme, fans can quickly share it over email, social media, and their own websites.Want to create your own nonprofit meme to help build buzz for your cause? Check out our tips on using memes to spread your nonprofit’s message. (Image credit: National Wildlife Federation, Source: Avi Kaplan) You’ve seen them all over Facebook, YouTube, Tumblr, and Pinterest: grumpycats,talking babies, even Ryan Gosling. Entertaining memes have exploded across the Internet. But have you also noticed an uptick in charitable memes, memes that are doing good? Many nonprofits are capitalizing on the popularity of memes to gain visibility and connect with new supporters.Nonprofits aren’t always great at piggybacking on the work of others, but that’s the key for a meme to take off. Senior Strategist Avi Kaplan of RAD Campaign has compiled some tip-top examples of nonprofit memes that worked because they borrowed a cultural phenomena, as did tech writer Zachary Sniderman.One of the best examples of nonprofit meme-jacking came from a 132-year-old organization, the American Red Cross. Capitalizing on Charlie Sheen’s 2011 outburst and proclamation to have drank tiger’s blood, the American Red Cross tweeted:We may not collect #tigerblood, but we know our donors & volunteers have fierce passion for doing good! #RedCrossMonth— American Red Cross (@RedCross)last_img read more

The PartoPen is being developed by University of Colorado-Boulder Ph.D candidate Heather Underwood.According to Maternova’s innovation index:Using an infrared camera, the pen takes picture of dots that are pre-printed on the paper that act as GPS coordinates for the pen. The pen provides real-time feedback for:     · Decision support: Based on location of the pen on graph, the pen will provide next steps     · Reminders: Auto-reminders of time and procedure     · Error Checking: ex. Recording a temperature in F vs. C, pen recognizes the errorThe digital partograph system provides real-time data feedback and reinforces birth attendant training, while retaining the paper-and-pen interface currently used by most healthcare workers. The system is currently being evaluated in Kenya.This project received a $100,000 Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation grant to develop and implement the technology.Learn more about this new tool from Maternova here.More information:Visit the PartoPen site.Access several documents about the partograph in the MHTF Library.
