How are you fairing in the current economy?

Canadian household debt reached a record high at the end of last year even as mortgage activity slowed, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. said in a report out Wednesday.
The debt to income ratio of Canadians hit a record high of 178.5 per cent in the fourth quarter last year as mortgage holders continued to take on non-mortgage debt.

A survey shows that Albertans are faring worse than the rest of Canada when it comes to nonmortgage debt, despite recent growth in the economy.
“I think we absolutely should be concerned,” Jonathan Day, an Edmonton-based accountant with BDO said of the results. A high average of debt, he said, puts the economy under major instability, as even the most minor of crashes may lead to households collapsing and people unable to move forward with their debt payments.

Many Albertans have little to no disposable income.

5 Powerful Ways to use QR codes

Having a business is not easy especially if you are in a place where there a lot of competition and you have low budget for advertising. Typically, businesses do not succeed much without customers and customers will not be aware that your business exists without promotion and advertising.

In the field of business management, you will obviously hear the term “QR codes” in many strategic planning for service and product promotion. If you are new in the field, you might be wondering what is a “QR Code” and what good can it do for your business.

QR codes (Quick Response codes) are two-dimensional codes that can be read by QR barcode readers on mobile devices. QR codes appear as black modules put into a specific order in a square – like model in a white background. QR codes contain information about your business in text or URL link.

The code is initially made to decode contents and provide INSTANT information about a certain product or service. Mobile phone users can scan QR codes and immediately be directed to your website, your coupon, your online video, or to a personal message from you – and many other options.

Quickly becoming popular in Japan a few years ago, QR codes were used to track parts of automobiles during manufacturing. However, due to the possibilities of the Internet, QR codes are now used to introduce new marketing strategies that provide additional customers and higher ROI to business owners.

Listed below are five examples of how to use QR codes effectively to help your business:

Social Platforms

  • Due to the popularity of social media, your QR codes can be attached to your web pages or social media profiles such as Facebook. That way, users can scan through the code and be directed to the information you want to get across.

Business Cards

  • You can have QR code added to your business card to direct customers to your business website or promotional offer. If you want them to simply be directed to your website, you can set-up the QR code to do so. If you want them to simply be provided with a promotional offer, you can set-up the QR code to do that as well.

Packaging Products

  • If your business involves sending packages to your customers, you can use QR codes to take customers to online guides and presentations about using your product. Or you can send them to a customer manual that will give them tips on using the product.

Press Releases

  • Online press releases are one of the best ways to gain online visibility for your business. However, this visibility is intensified with inclusion of QR codes in your press releases. After being intrigued to learn more about your business after reading your press release, the viewer can simply scan your QR code with their mobile device to be taken to your website for more information.

Include on All Printed Advertisements

  • QR codes are great for branding your business and creating awareness. You’ve probably noticed that more and more businesses are using QR codes on their flyers, postcards, billboards, t-shirts, coffee mugs… pretty much all of their marketing materials. The powerful idea behind this is that once the user scans the QR code, they can instantly gain access to whatever information you want them to have.

The possibilities are endless!

The Benefits of SMS Text Message Marketing

Technology has been a life-changing experience for all of us – especially in recent years.  New inventions are created every single day that are meant to make our lives easier.

Due to these reasons, businesses have to start “mobilizing” if they want to really stay in front of their target market.

One of the most popular forms of mobile marketing is SMS Text Message Marketing.

SMS text message marketing allows you to communicate directly to your target market by sending a simple, quick text message. This permission-based program is perfect because your recipients have opted-in to receive your messages. It’s effective because they WANT to receive your promotions.

Another great thing about SMS text message marketing is the deliverability of the message. Almost all text messages are read within minutes of receiving them.  In fact, recent studies show that 97% of text messages are read within minutes of receiving them. So this is the perfect way to get your promotions across to your target market.

SMS text message marketing is also more time-efficient compared to traditional advertising methods.  Text messages have to be short due to character limitations, so putting together your marketing message takes just a few minutes instead of days and weeks to prepare.

SMS text message marketing is also highly trackable. You have the advantage of monitoring and finding out what happens with each message you send out.  In other words, you can track down your campaigns to evaluate many metrics such as how many people viewed your message.

Can you do that with any newspaper, TV, or radio ad? Nope.

SMS text message marketing is also a great way to retain your customers at a very low cost. It’s the  perfect recipe for customer retention because you can reach out to them very easily. These are customers who have already spent money with you, so chances are, they will come back to spend more and more money with you as long as you keep in touch with them.

As long as everything is set-up well and you are taking good care of your list, your business can bring in a lot more money with the use of this amazingly effective technology.
