Stress Relief Is Available=Learn To Deal With It Effectively

S-t-r-e-s-s, it is everywhere and unless you learn to deal effectively with it and find ways to get some stress relief, it can cause some serious health problems.

Some of the most common effects prolonged exposure to stressful situations have on your body, mood, and behavior are:

1. Headaches, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of interest in sex, and changes in your sleep pattern and bowel habits.

2. Increased anxiousness, lack of motivation, depression and restlessness.

3. Overeating or not eating enough, using alcohol or drugs, withdrawing from social situations, or lashing out in anger can become behavioral problems.

If you notice that you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should go speak to your doctor and have a physical to make sure that you do not have any underlying problems caused by the stressful situations in your life like increased blood pressure.

Have the doc give you the once over and then ask them how to decrease the stressful situations in your life.

You could just need to talk a walk everyday after dinner to alleviate some anxiety. Nothing beats exercise for stress relief and to know you are doing something good for yourself is a plus as well.

It does not even have to be intense exercise. A walk around the neighborhood will do nicely.

If you have the time you could try a yoga class. Yoga is extremely effective for relieving tension and helping you remain centered and calm.

No one has to be a victim of the stressful situations life throws at us everyday. All you have to do is find ways to deal with it that work for you. Maybe some aroma therapy would be nice.

Heck, you could even do this at work if you could find some time. Lavender is one of the best scents used for calming. Do some research online and then order some essential oils or go buy some in the store.

Remember, though, a little goes a long way. Place only a drop or two on a cotton ball or tissue and put it up to your nose and inhale slowly and deeply. Exhale through your mouth and close your eyes and lay your head back, relaxing your entire body as you exhale. Repeat as needed.

Include some soft music and dim lights to enhance the calming effects of the essential oils. Like I said, this is so easy to do, you could even manage to do this at work especially during a particularly rough day.

When was the last time you laughed…at anything? If you cannot remember when you last had a good belly laugh then maybe you need to go rent a good comedy on your way home tonight.

Everyone has heard that laughter is the best medicine, right? Well, it is also one of the best stress relief activities you can do for yourself, and it’s free for everyone to do. If the movie doesn’t do it for you then get together with some old friends and reminisce about old times. Just laugh.

Tips on How to Advertise Effectively When Growing Your Business

Tips on How to Advertise Effectively When Growing Your Business

When most new small business owners are first starting out, they probably don’t have much of a budget to spend on advertising. However, as your business grows, investing some of your profits in ads can really help boost your business and bring in even more profits.

The main thing to consider is whether or not your ads are getting the best return on investment (ROI). Fortunately, online ads can give you a big bang for your buck if you plan ahead and watch your metrics carefully. Here are some tips on how to advertise effectively when growing your business.

Set a Goal for Each Campaign

Do you want more:
* Traffic
* Subscribers
* Sales
* Brand recognition

This will affect the wording of your ads and which type you will use. It will also determine your call to action (CTA) for your target audience to take the next step now that they have seen your ad.

Niche Ads

One of the reasons online marketing is so successful is that it allows you to target a niche using keywords. Whenever someone searches online at Google, for example, if you have an ad running in their AdWords system, your ad will be shown.

In terms of social media ads, you can choose keywords or interests, age groups and more. Smart niche marketers create what is called a marketing persona – a profile of the ideal customer they wish to target. They might be a woman, married with children, aged between 31 and 40, who has pets, and so on. Social media ads such as those at Facebook would actually allow you to choose every single one of those if you wished to ensure that your ad was not being shown to people who would probably not be interested.

Pay-Per-Click (PPC) Ads

The other key feature of online marketing is the PPC ads. You only pay if a person clicks on the ad to obey your call to action. The percentage of people who complete the CTA are referred to as the click-through rate. A good click-through rate means your ad is effective. However, a poor completion rate of subscribers or sales would mean the page you are sending them to is not converting well for some reason.

Create a New Landing Page for Every New Campaign

An easy way to track click-throughs and conversions is to set up a unique landing page for each campaign so you can track the ROI on your ad. If you see your visitors are not converting, you can edit, test and track alternate versions of the page until you come up with a winner. For example, you might change the headline, add more reviews and testimonials, or create a stronger call to action. Tracking and testing does take time, but the higher your conversion rate from the same amount of traffic, the better.

Doing the Math

An average conversion rate would be 1%. That means one out of every 100 people would buy. If you are selling a product for $20, you would need to make sure you were spending less than that on your ads.

But what if you could boost your conversion rate to 5%? Then you would get $100 per 100 visitors. If your ad has a high click-through rate, then you can keep repeating this process over and over again – in which case, the ads will more than pay for themselves.

Know Your Niche

Focus on what your niche needs most, and you should have no trouble coming up with winning products to sell, and effective ads.
