Negativity Bias in Family Relationships

Negativity bias is a term used to describe the tendency of the human brain to notice problems or threats more readily than positive or beneficial situations. One theory on why this tendency exists is that it has historically had survival value. If, while sitting around the fire, we hear a stick break in the darkness nearby, some may dismiss it as harmless, and others may assume it is a wild beast looking to eat them. More often than not, those who panic are wrong, but the consequences of that are minimal. When those who dismiss the potential threat are wrong, though, rare as it may be, the consequences are deadly. Those who more frequently noticed dangerous situations were more likely to survive and pass on their genes.

My business revenue has leveled off.

Depositphotos_105463286_m-2015

Getting past the six-figure revenue mark is one of the biggest obstacles that business owners trip over. But once you exceed $100,000, earning a million bucks is just around the corner! (Insert the happy dance here!)

Hitting a plateau happens when you’re unable to see the operational choke points in your business process. In other words, you’ve been too intimate with your business for too long. Plus there are other elements stacked against you, such as paying your employees, meeting expenses and taxes. I know it’s hard to imagine that you can be too intimate with your business! Although that’s a sweet spot to be in, it can be detrimental as well.

The question: why do we bow drill?

I have been thinking about this question for a while. After four years in the field, hundreds of personal embers and who knows how many more witnessed, you would think it would be easy for me to answer that question. I have been a long-term proponent of bow drilling because I have seen it work miracles. I have seen tears of anger, joy, and triumph. I have seen bows broken in rage and then re-crafted with delicate care and love. Of all of the things we do out there in the woods, nothing can elicit the full range of emotions quite like bow drilling.

ABM uses personalized marketing communications.

If you’re like me, I usually click “delete” after I read, “Dear potential customer,” because if someone wants to gain (or keep) my business, I assume that they at least know my name. Maybe that’s stiff, but here’s my point: personalized marketing strategies are better at engaging customers.

ABM says goodbye to generic tactics and integrates personalization. It develops useful and helpful content directed at key decision-makers to move them through the buyer’s journey. Such finely-tuned content requires research, which those key decision-makers will instantly notice. (Can’t you hear them saying, “Wow. They did their research. That’s helpful content!”) It also requires that your marketing and sales teams efficiently and effectively target these contacts with a collaborative effort.

5 Reasons Why You Should Implement Account-Based Marketing

main-qimg-11db46581b41a8d68ff3a474fa3

Have you heard of account-based marketing (ABM) before? (It’s also known as key account marketing) Whether those are familiar letters or sound like a foreign language, ABM is simple. These are the basics: instead of a one-to-many marketing approach, it’s a one-to-one approach. Account-based marketing makes strategic goals for specific target accounts in B2B marketing.

Although ABM typically is used for brands with oodles of employees (think 1000+), you are probably incorporating elements of this into your marketing strategy without even realizing it! It helps teams to:

  • Engage higher value opportunities earlier in the sales process
  • Align sales and account management strategies with your strategic marketing initiatives
  • Maximize your return on investment (ROI) and value from your marketing campaigns.
