Email Video Marketing Has Many Upsides

Email marketing works and always will work. With a properly composed and presented email, sellers are in a good position to effectively market a product or service to an audience. What marketers have to do these days, however, is work at developing far more engaging and relevant content in an email. More text and static images are not enough. Nice logos at the top of the email masthead won’t impress to the same degree they once did.

Instead, a better plan would be to integrate videos into the content of an email. A detailed article in Hello Tesla reveals videos presented in emails help increase revenues by up to 40%. Those who open marketing-oriented emails may be intrigued to click on the video box to see what its all about. A solid video has the potential to really grab an audience. The audience is made up of potential customers. Grabbing their attention is a must for any success to be achieved.

While there are scores of free programs available to put together a video, a wiser strategy is to work with professionals. No real secret exists as to why. Solid professionals are going to be in the best position to actually produce a quality, results-driven work.

Talk Fusion is one of the top providers of online video content in the world. Talk Fusion’s advertising slogan “Be part of the moment” could mean a lot of things. In Talk Fusion’s case, the “moment” is frequently defined as the time period in which a great idea is developed. In 2007, the founder of Talk Fusion, Bob Reina, pioneered the use of videos in email marketing campaigns. Today, Talk Fusion continues to come up with successful and innovative strategies at the forefront of the video marketing industry.

The Hello Tesla article points out many reasons why email video marketing is so critical. The strategy often effectively leads to conversions and results. Are those not the results businesses want to achieve with their online marketing?

Autism Rocks is a charity organization dedicated to raising donations and awareness for desperate research needed to determine causes of the developmental disorder. The charity was founded by Sanjay Shah, Founder and CEO of Solo Capital Partners, LLP in 2014. PR Newswire released press news in London on February 8th, 2016 that Will Best and Pete Best have joined the Board of Trustees. Shah, Pete and Will met while attending college and are long-time friends. Shah believes the brothers have the professional expertise to efficiently manage and oversee the charity events, concerts and fundraisers.

The first artist featured at an invitational concert for Autism Rocks was Prince, which was held in 2014. Other artists who performed at some of the music concerts are Drake and Michael Buble. Will and Pete Best are now responsible for the management and planning of future invitational-only concerts and events to raise funds. Will has years of experience in the entertainment and music industry, which makes him the perfect candidate to add to the board of trustees. His brother, Pete has approximately 21 years of expertise in London’s financial markets, which is great for marketing.

Sanjay Shah is the owner and founder of Solo Capital Market, a firm headquartered in London of England. The firm was incorporated in 2011 and specializes in investment consultation, professional sports investments, and proprietary trading. Solo Capital is also known as Solo Capital Limited and Solo Capital UK. Its net worth at the end of March 2015 was €15.45 million and total asset was €67.45 million.

Charles Koch Supports George Mason University

According to tax records spanning from 2011-2014 Charles Koch has donated an estimated $48 million dollars to George Mason University. Why should this become noteworthy? Charles Koch has spent millions on his philanthropic pursuits. The large amounts of the Koch Foundations donations have caused some university officials and students concern as to the feasibility of academic independence. Another cause for alarm are the number of people who sit on the university’s boards who have ties to Koch Industries.

The majority of the donated funds go to the Mercatus Center which was founded by Richard Fink who is the Executive Vice President of Koch Industries. Charles Koch also sits on the board of the Mercatus Center and the University’s Institute for Humane Studies. The Mercatus Center conducts research that is designed to educate Federal regulators and congressional aides whose work can influence the direction of government. Recently Koch Industries donated $10 million dollars to the George Mason University’s Law School. Over the past four years the university senate committee and various student organizations have been attempting to investigate the relationship between George Mason and Charles Koch to no avail.

In 2013 the Koch Foundation signed an agreement with Florida State University. The Foundation gave a considerable grant to the university with the permission from university officials to fund the Study of Political Economy and Free Thinking Program. One needs to ask do these grants truly come with no strings attached?

Billionaire Charles Koch was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas where he still lives today with his wife and children. Charles graduated from the Prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he holds a bachelors in general engineering, a masters in electrical engineering and a doctorate in chemical engineering. Upon completion of his studies he returned home to Wichita to the over the family business Rock Island Oil and Petroleum after the death of his father. Charles then changed the name of the company to Koch Industries. Today Koch Industries is the second largest privately owned corporation in the United States.

In 2008 Charles was named one of Business Weeks top philanthropist after donating an estimated $250 million dollars. He donates to a plethora of organizations who range from free thinking libertarian groups to the Republican National Party. All of the programs and organizations have one thing in common and that is the studying of free societies we and forming an understanding about how economic freedom benefits humanity.

Helene Morrison: Looking after the People

Some of us remember the Stock Market crash a few short years ago, and the subsequent way the Banks of America followed suite. Most people agree it was the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, but in the wake of the upheaval that swept through the country, America gave birth to some of it’s greats. Helane Morrison is one of those, and an article by Project Eve depicts Morrison’s career as she carves her way to that title.

How does she do it? According to Project Eve’s research, she does it by cleaning house. Helane exposed the corrupt practices in the financial sector of the business world is hardly going to be easy, but she comes out of the gate wielding a background of law and journalism. This ensures that those responsible are prosecuted, as well as exposed to the public who trusted them. She is hardly shy about it, too, publishing a Google book to showcase her cases.

Morrison’s strong morals ensure she cannot be swayed from the path she has chosen to walk down, and her unique leadership style draws people to her cause. But while Morrison is a pioneer in secure investments, that could hardly be all she is. No person is so one dimensional that there is never more to them.

Passionate about the environment, animals, and even people, Morrison balances her work at Hall Capital with work on the Regional Parks Foundation board. As a member of this board, she works with her peers to raise awareness of environmental issues and preservation of animals and their habitats.

One method they have created is called Campership. Campership is designed to expose high risk or disabled children to the joy of camping. Another method that boasts great success is week-long immersion for underprivileged youths in fourth and fifth grade.

She also volunteers her time to the American Bar Association, sitting on a subcommittee for hedge funds. Hedge funds previously had very lax rules and were often used to take advantage of clients. However, Morrison has worked hard to weed out managers and management styles, using stricter regulations to close the loopholes that may have left a person hesitant to invest their money.

Morrison is one of those few people who’s history speaks for itself. She is determined to look out for the future of people, be it in America’s youth or by safeguarding the investments of Americans.
