That there are words that can boost conversions and social shares? (here is 1, watch for the next 5 which will be posted soon)

Power word #1. NEW

“New” takes you on a journey of discovery.

Our brains are wired for “new.” Our attraction to novelties helps us innovate and seek new opportunities. If new things weren’t
so attractive to humans, we’d still be stuck in our caves. We wouldn’t meet here on the web.

How to use the power of “new” in your writing:

In emails promoting new products, use “new,” “announcing,” or “introducing” at the start of your subject line.

On lead pages for new products, use feature flashes highlighting the word “new”.

When upgrading an existing product, explain what’s new about it.

When tweeting a new blog post for the first time, use “new blog post” at the start of your tweet.

More words to follow in the next few days 🙂

These tips are helpful to anyone that is marketing online, entrepreneurs, coaches, virtual assistantssocial media managers…..

10 Reasons I Love Being a Virtual Assistant!

10 Reasons I Love Being a Virtual Assistant

  1. The ability to work from anywhere!  I can work at home, in my office or on my deck.  I can work at Starbucks, I can work at the beach, at my friend’s house, by the pool, in my car while on vacation!  I can work at the dog park! Freedom is what it is all about!
  2. Satisfaction – knowing that I am helping people with the things I am expert at, so they can spend time growing their businesses.
  3. Flexibility – setting my own hours.  I am a night owl and I can work in the wee hours while everything is quiet!
  4. Variety of tasks – a Virtual Assistant is a diverse role and I love doing many different things that help my clients.
  5. Relationships – building professional relationships with different people from all over the world and many different industries.
  6. The social media aspect – working virtually means spending most of my time in the online world being social!
  7. Environmental Benefits – working virtually means using conserving paper and most of my time is electronic. This gives a very streamlined approach to modern business.
  8. Working with BIG and SMALL Businesses – helping both types of businesses give us variety and we have the excitement of helping a startup, solopreneur and the challenges of working with big corporations on projects as well.
  9. Assisting multiple clients – we LOVE challenges; it keeps us on our toes.
  10. No need to waste time commuting – walking from my bedroom to my home office lets me start working on my tasks immediately and working allows me more productivity time.

I worked in Corporate America for many years and I love being a Virtual Assistant!  It is very rewarding to help clients so that they can spend their important time working on their business.  I am no longer restricted by corporate rules and am now able to be a business partner to many and can let my expertise, creativity and ideas help many.

Thanks,

Danna


 

Did You Know That Your Logo Design Has Psychological Meanings?

It’s old news by now — design is absolutely essential in communicating messages and emotions in your marketing.

The psychological impact of color in particular is a popular topic and design consideration for most marketers (especially when it comes to conversion rates), but unless you are a designer by trade or an art lover, it’s unlikely that you’ve thought deeply into the effects of shape.

Like color, shapes have emotional connotations and can trigger different images and memories in people’s minds. For example, think about the shape of a heart or a star:

These shapes make you feel things; they elicit emotions.

Companies like yours can easily capitalize on these inherent effects to communicate your brand and values through your logos, but in order to do that, you first need to have a thorough understanding of the most common interpretations of different shapes.

“Picking  a shape for your logo is more than an aesthetic choice,” it explains. 

“You have to think about your audience, and what emotion and feelings you want to elicit when they see your logo.”

Here’s how it defines some of the most popular shapes/styles in logo design:

  • Symmetrical/Geometric: Organization and stability (i.e Audi, BBC)
  • Organic: Pleasure, comfort, interest, and spontaneity (i.e. Whole Foods,
    Fresh Market)
  • Abstract: Literal interpretations of ideas or directions (i.e. Apple, WWF)
  • Circles: Community, friendship, love, relationships, unity, perfection, attention, protection (i.e Target, Starbucks, HubSpot)
  • Curves: Femininity, motion, happiness, rhythm, pleasure (i.e. Coca-Cola, Intel)
  • Spirals: Creativity, growth, evolution (i.e. Hilton, Sun Microsystems)
  • Rectangles: Familiarity, trust, order, peace, uniformity (i.e. Microsoft, American
    Express)
  • Triangles: Power, science, religion, law, masculinity, strength, purpose, energy, precision. (i.e. Chevron, Delta)
  • Vertical Lines: Masculinity, strength, aggression, courage, power
  • Horizontal Lines: Community, tranquility, calmness (i.e. IBM, AT&T)

Key Takeaways:

  • 50% of the world’s most admired companies have rectangular logos
  • 22% have squares
  • 20% have circles
