The Wisconsin Supreme Court is corrupt and have decided to uphold Republicans last minute “Lame-Duck Session” stripping the incoming Democratic Governor and Attorney General of all power.

 

One of the first things the GOP is doing is the following:

 

“GOP Bill Would Create Water Pollution Credit Clearinghouse”

“Republican lawmakers are looking to streamline Wisconsin's water pollution credits system.”

 

www.usnews.com/news/best-states/wisconsin/articles/2019-0...

 

Trading rights to pollute in a market is thwart with peril and abuse and voters typically don’t challenge the result – until it is too late - because of the schemes complexity. One thing is for certain, Republicans, especially WISCONSIN Republicans, didn’t suddenly find respect for the environment.

Degradation of our planet’s ability to support life is the single greatest act of discrimination based upon wealth\income that human history will likely ever experience.

 

To allow the rich to benefit from any type of degradation is morally wrong. They must be held financially accountable.

Location Info..

The Fairmont Empress (most commonly known as The Empress) is one of the oldest and most famous hotels in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Located on Government Street facing the Inner Harbour, the Empress has become an iconic symbol for the city itself.

 

The Edwardian, château-style hotel was designed by Francis Rattenbury for Canadian Pacific Hotels as a terminus hotel for Canadian Pacific's steamship line, whose main terminal was just a block away. The hotel was to serve businesspeople and visitors to Victoria, but later as Canadian Pacific ceased its passenger services to the city, the hotel was successfully remarketed as a resort to tourists. Victoria emerged as a tourist destination beginning in the mid-to-late 1920s

 

The hotel has 477 rooms, with most either overlooking the Inner Harbour or the hotel's rear courtyard gardens. It has four restaurants, including The Bengal Lounge, which is decorated in Victorian-era, Colonial Indian style (when Queen Victoria was the Empress of India) or Kipling's, which is named after its once frequent guest and visitor, author Rudyard Kipling. In 2005, Kipling's closed its doors to the public in order for the hotel to gain more space for private functions. The hotel has gym facilities, a whirlpool bath and an indoor swimming pool.

 

What some people may not know, is that The Empress was actually built on a bog. And as a result, is sinking into the ground about a quarter of an inch each year. If you're ever taking photos of it, you'll notice that the building is never straight with the horizon.

This woman was sitting at an outdoor table of a small restaurant/coffee-shop on the west side of Columbus Avenue at 73rd Street. It's the first time that I've seen anyone in this particular area (which is near a gym that I usually visit 2-3 times a week) with a laptop, and I was delighted to see that she had a Mac.... and not just any old Mac, but a Mac Powerbook. (But not a MacBook Air :) )

This is part of an evolving photo-project, which will probably continue throughout the summer of 2008, and perhaps beyond: a random collection of "interesting" people in a broad stretch of the Upper West Side of Manhattan -- between 72nd Street and 104th Street, especially along Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue.

 

I don't like to intrude on people's privacy, so I normally use a telephoto lens in order to photograph them while they're still 50-100 feet away from me; but that means I have to continue focusing my attention on the people and activities half a block away, rather than on what's right in front of me.

 

I've also learned that, in many cases, the opportunities for an interesting picture are very fleeting -- literally a matter of a couple of seconds, before the person(s) in question move on, turn away, or stop doing whatever was interesting. So I've learned to keep the camera switched on (which contradicts my traditional urge to conserve battery power), and not worry so much about zooming in for a perfectly-framed picture ... after all, once the digital image is uploaded to my computer, it's pretty trivial to crop out the parts unrelated to the main subject.

 

For the most part, I've deliberately avoided photographing bums, drunks, drunks, and crazy people. There are a few of them around, and they would certainly create some dramatic pictures; but they generally don't want to be photographed, and I don't want to feel like I'm taking advantage of them. I'm still looking for opportunities to take some "sympathetic" pictures of such people, which might inspire others to reach out and help them. We'll see how it goes ...

 

The only other thing I've noticed, thus far, is that while there are lots of interesting people to photograph, there are far, far, *far* more people who are *not* so interesting. They're probably fine people, and they might even be more interesting than the ones I've photographed ... but there was just nothing memorable about them.

The press cutting above was pinned to a noticeboard in the bookshop. Enlarge the photo to read the text. Or here are the first few paragraphs of the story written by journalist Karen Dent who interviewed Mary and Stuart Manley, owners of Barter Books in Alnwick.

        ___________________

 

"Mary and Stuart Manley met when he threw her a note during a transatlantic plane journey. US-born Mary was returning to the UK after visiting her father in Missouri and Englishman Stuart was on his way home.

  "I opened it up and it said: 'if you want to talk to me, raise your hand'," says Mary. "I'd asked for a seat on my own because I just wanted to read a book, I didn't want to hear some man talking about how his wife didn't understand him.

  "But this was too good - so I raised my hand, Stuart sat down, and basically in the course of the flight, he told me how his wife didn't understand him (laughs). He was getting divorced, and I thought, 'this isn't good'. But it ended up really well; we got married three years later." Stuart says it was "the ultimate in luck".

  "I don't go round chatting up women; it was only because frankly, I was transfixed and I thought I must do something," he says.

  "So I watched the first in-flight movie all the way through still thinking how I could do it and before the second in-flight movie, I conceived the idea of writing a note.

  "It's that combination of luck and action. If I hadn't thrown her the note, the luck of us meeting wouldn't have made any difference; you actually have to do something. It's grasping your luck when it comes along, recognising it."

  Luck is something the pair admit they've been blessed with since opening Barter Books in Alnwick's former railway station in 1991.

  At the time, Stuart was making models for rail modellers and war gamers in part of the building.

  "I ran it for 10 years and it was singularly unsuccessful," he says.

  "It was never unsuccessful enough to make me give up, but never successful enough to let you get anywhere.

  "We had just done a remarketing with new packaging and we'd hocked our all into the bank and it doubled sales, but we needed to triple sales to get us out of the trouble.

  "Way back in those days of 20 years back, the interest rates were so high, we were just heading for the rocks. We were paying back the interest, but we weren't paying back the loan. We were heading for bankruptcy at high speed.

  "Then Mary had her little idea." Mary worked in an antiquarian bookshop in the US and taught art history before coming to the UK to study at St John's College in Oxford.

  She says: "As I tell people often, there's nothing more inspiring than an overdraft. The only thing I knew anything about was books; it was either teaching or working in a bookshop. In 1991, I needed something to do, needed money and I'd always wanted a bookshop - but only secondhand.

  "I was driving up to Lindisfarne, because I was doing voluntary work, and I thought maybe I could start a secondhand bookshop and call it Barter Books, have a little barter system. Stuart liked the idea and said 'let's give it a go'."

  Starting off in a tiny part of the building, which was built in the 1880s and closed as a station in 1968, Barter Books grew and grew.

  Stuart says: "By 1992, we expanded the bookshop and made the factory as small as we could.

  "But one more year told us our future was in books, not in models, so I had a big sale in the model press - 'your last chance to buy this stuff' - and we actually got more orders in three months than we'd had in the previous two years.

  "And it wiped out our overdraft, so it meant we could start progressing the bookshop from an even playing field instead of trying to play catchup." Mary says: "We'd make a bit of money and then throw it back into the shop. We still do - it's our pleasure really and it's good business too, I think."

SEATTLE – Where Facebook ads were once a hotbed for Lookalike audiences and bottom-of-the-funnel conversion actions, it’s now a crowded space that enables ad blindness and brand apathy on a foundational level.

 

That’s the view of Susan Wenograd, account group director at Aimclear, who delivered a session on optimizing social ads at SMX Advanced last week.

 

What happened?

 

For starters, an oversaturation of ads served to the same users means that Lookalike audiences are no longer as effective as they once were. Add that to an over-reliance on conversion-focused campaigns and Facebook’s removal of third-party targeting, and you’ve got an ecosystem where brands are more fixated on lead counts than sustainable brand growth.

 

“Agencies that can’t strategize their way out of a paper bag will fail, as they should have long ago,” Wenograd said. In a flooded social landscape, the most successful brands will be the ones that integrate robust paid strategies and prioritize high-quality creative.

 

Shifting the campaign goal

 

If brands want to thrive in the next wave of social advertising, she added, then we (as marketers) need to return to our roots and examine conversion actions as only one piece of the larger picture. By shifting the initial campaign goal from CPA (conversions) to CPM (impressions), marketers can build a foundation for a more engaged, qualified audience pool with more efficient ad spend.

 

Once qualified leads begin engaging with a brand awareness campaign, advertisers can then use that rich data for retargeting. Building remarketing pools is a crucial component to converting leads, and a necessary undertaking for social advertisers planning to come out on top.

 

“Brands and agencies that can measure and understand triggers of brand lift will win the long game in expensive media arenas,” Wenograd said.

 

In going back-to-basics with engagement campaigns, brands should also be leveraging cross-channel data to maximize targeting opportunities. Implementing tagging structures and UTM parameters across all digital media can provide advertisers with streamlined access to tested segmentation data.

 

Creative at the center

 

But, of course, all this could mean nothing without compelling creative to back it up. Our rapidly evolving social footprint means that audiences expect high-quality visual assets, optimized to the format, screen, or platform they view it on. As Wenograd concluded in her session, “Brands and agencies that cannot execute and be nimble on creative will not survive in the Facebook and Instagram landscape.”

Excerpt from Wikipedia: The Fairmont Empress (most commonly known as The Empress) is one of the oldest and most famous hotels in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Located on Government Street facing the Inner Harbour, the Empress has become an iconic symbol for the city itself. It has been designated a National Historic Site of Canada due to its national significance.

 

The hotel has 477 rooms, with most either overlooking the Inner Harbour or the hotel's rear courtyard gardens.

 

The Edwardian, château-style hotel was designed by Francis Rattenbury for Canadian Pacific Hotels as a terminus hotel for Canadian Pacific's steamship line, whose main terminal was just a block away. The hotel was to serve businesspeople and visitors to Victoria, but later as Canadian Pacific ceased its passenger services to the city, the hotel was successfully remarketed as a resort to tourists. Victoria emerged as a tourist destination beginning in the mid-to-late 1920s.

 

The hotel was built between 1904 and 1908, opening for service in that year. Additional wings were added between 1909 and 1914, and in 1928.

The earliest Canadian postcards published by Valentine & Sons were uncoloured collotypes of scenery along the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway north of Lake Superior and in the Rocky Mountains. Typically, Valentine postcards have a 6-digit serial number (###,###) on the view side with the initials “J.V.” in a circle adjacent to that number. The main series of numbering begins with a Halifax card as no. 100,000 and ends (as far as we know) with a postcard of Toronto as no. 115,981. There are also two short runs of numbers in the 400,000 range that are found on some cards from the Yukon Territory and a longer run of views from various parts of Canada that begins at 600,000 and continues past 602,000.

In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968. Today, classic car collectors consider these cars to be very desirable.

The Empress Hotel

 

The Fairmont Empress, formerly and commonly referred to as The Empress, is one of the oldest hotels in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Located on 721 Government Street, it is situated in Downtown Victoria, facing the city's Inner Harbour. The hotel was designed by Francis Rattenbury, and was built by Canadian Pacific Hotels, a division of the Canadian Pacific Railway company. The hotel is presently managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts.

 

Opened on 25 January 1908, the Châteauesque-styled building is considered one of Canada's grand railway hotels. Since its opening, the hotel has undergone two expansions, the first from 1910 to 1912, and a second expansion in 1928. The building was designated as a National Historic Site of Canada on January 1981.

 

History

 

The Chateauesque was designed by Francis Rattenbury for Canadian Pacific Hotels as a terminus hotel for Canadian Pacific's steamship line, whose main terminal was just a block away.[13] The hotel was to serve business people and visitors to Victoria, but later as Canadian Pacific ceased its passenger services to the city, the hotel was successfully remarketed as a resort to tourists. Victoria emerged as a tourist destination beginning in the mid-to-late 1920s.

 

The hotel was built between 1904 and 1908, opening for service in that year. Additional wings were added between 1909 and 1914, and in 1928.[5] In 1919, Edward, Prince of Wales attended a gala at the hotel's Crystal Ballroom.[14]

 

In the 1930s, Shirley Temple arrived accompanied by her parents amid rumours that she had fled from California because of kidnapping threats, a story borne from the presence of two huge bodyguards who took the room opposite hers and always left their door open.[15] On May 30, 1939, King George VI and Queen Elizabeth attended a luncheon at the Empress during their 1939 royal tour of Canada.[16]

 

For many years the hotel did not have a sign above the front entrance.[17][when?] In 1965, debate to tear down The Empress to make room for a more modern, functional high-rise hotel surfaced. One local newspaper warned that, "Without this splendid relic of the Edwardian era, literally tens of thousands of tourists will never return. This is the Mecca, this is the heart and soul of the city."[17] However, on 10 June 1966, the hotel's ownership announced that they would not be demolished, but would embark on a $4 million renovation and refurbishment program, playfully dubbed Operation Teacup.[17]

 

In 1989, over $45 million was spent in additional restoration known as The Royal Restoration.[18] Guest rooms were renovated, and a health club, indoor swimming pool and guest reception were added.[17] During these renovation, the engineering staff from the hotel confirmed that there was what has been described as a tunnel that ran from James Bay into the basement of the Empress. At high tide one was able to visit the basement and see the salt water flood the opening. It is not clear what the purpose was. Some have suggested that it was part of the hotel's waste management system and that at one time the sewage from the hotel was being flushed into James Bay.[citation needed]

 

In 1999, Canadian Pacific spun off Canadian Pacific Hotels, along with all its properties. The new company was renamed Fairmont Hotels & Resorts in an effort to reflect its growing global presence and ambitions. As such, all former CP Hotel properties were to be renamed and rebranded with the prefix 'Fairmont'.[19] This led to a loud uproar and consternation by Victoria's newspapers and its citizens, a decision they viewed as sacrilege.[citation needed] Although the new name stuck, Fairmont made no changes to the hotel's original exterior signage, as a compromise to soothe local anxieties and respect its iconic heritage.[citation needed]

 

Fairmont later sold the hotel on October 31, 2000, to the Legacy Hotels REIT for CAD $120 million. However, Fairmont has a long-term management agreement with Legacy Hotels, and as of August 2005, held an 11.14% ownership in this REIT.[20] The hotel was sold again on June 27, 2014, to Vancouver-based owners, Nat and Flora Bosa. They invested more than $60 million in renovations.[21] On May 2017, the first phase of restoration work and renovation was completed at the hotel. The renovations included redesigns of the guest rooms and suites, spa, dining facilities, and reception lobby.[10][11]

In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968. Today, classic car collectors consider these cars to be very desirable.

 

The marketing theme for this limited edition was "California Made it Happen!", a variation on Mustang's national marketing theme and commercial jingle, "Only Mustang Makes it Happen!"

This was all in response to the new pony car competition for the upcoming 1968 model year from the Camaro, Firebird, Javelin, and even from Ford's Torino and Mercury Cougar. The state of California, alone, was responsible for the sales of 20% of all Mustangs and Thunderbirds in the country, which gave the regional dealers there the clout to ask for and market their own Mustang.

Lee Grey was the Southern California district sales manager for Ford and he was looking for something unique to spark the sales of Mustangs in Los Angeles. Ford dealers had tried promotions like the "1967 Rainbow Colored Mustangs", as well as by adding accessories and options to dress up cars for public view. The objective was to make the Mustangs sold in California unique and to look "custom" made, thus differentiating them from the standard models available elsewhere.

 

Lee Grey attended the Ford Preview event for the new 1968 Fords at the Los Angeles Coliseum in August 1967, where he saw a Shelby GT-500 prototype coupe nicknamed "Little Red". This was a supercharged 428, C-6 automatic coupe that was dressed up in bright red paint, and a vinyl roof, as a formal, yet high-performance vehicle. It was on display to gauge market response as a possible Shelby lineup Mustang. Lee saw this as an opportunity to use the elements of this prototype to market his "California-Only Mustang". He met with Lee Iaccoca in L.A., and the decision was made to bring the car to Dearborn to develop into a limited edition Mustang. First, it was known as the "GT/SC", as a nationally available Sport Coupe, then, after some discussion, developed as the GT/CS.

 

Shelby Automotive, now part of Ford, was assigned the task of designing and engineering the necessary parts and assembly procedures for the GT/CS. This was done right alongside the development of their 1968 Shelby. The fiberglass parts were crafted at A.O. Smith, in Ionia, Michigan, in steel molds. A.O. Smith was also the same OEM manufacturer for the Corvette fiberglass bodies. The completed fiberglass parts for the GT/CS included: the rear decklid and end caps, taillight panel, and side scoops (RH and LH).

I made this apron for a friend. I used McCall's pattern 3979. It is a vintage apron pattern (although remarketed?). Very cute. Looks crooked here, but I think it is the way I'm standing. Fabric is Phyllis Hoffman's "Poodles in Paris"; made for Hancock Fabrics.

In mid-February 1968, the California Ford Dealers (Ford Dealer Advertising Fund) began to market a factory-built, limited-edition Mustang, called the GT/CS, or "California Special". The hope was for a targeted production run of 5,000; however, only 4118 were made, including 251 units that were remarketed in Denver, Colorado, as "High Country Special '68". Production ran for only 5.5 months from mid-February 1968 to early August 1968. The Mustang GT/CS features included: Marchal or Lucas Fog Lights, twist-type DZUS hood pins, side scoops, pop-open gas cap, rear spoiler decklid with end caps, and taillight panel with 1965 Thunderbird taillights (non sequential). Side stripes with the "GT/CS" die-cut logo, along with a rear decklid stripe were included, and were available in white, black, red, and metallic medium blue only. It was available in all standard Mustang colors for 1968, all Ford engine and transmission combinations (except 427/C-6, which was dropped for all '68s).

Most produced were the small-block 289 two-barrel (2V) carburetor with C-4 automatic transmission. All regular production factory and dealer options for 1968 Mustang coupes were also available for the GT/CS, other than options that would conflict with the GT/CS package, such as fog lights or C-stripes. The GT option package was available on the GT/CS so some, but not all, GT/CSs are also GTs. The "GT" in GT/CS has nothing to do with the GT package.

Distribution of the Mustang GT/CS was primarily within the two California sales districts (DSOs 71 & 72); but was expanded to sales districts in Washington, Nevada, Texas, Utah, Oklahoma, Arizona, Western Canada, and Colorado (as the High Country Special).

The most prized versions are the big-block 390 and Cobra Jet 428 versions, of which only a handful were made. The GT/CS has become one of the most owner-appreciated classic Mustangs, since it has both the qualities of a Shelby GT, and a Mustang coupe. Its uniqueness, and rarity draws great attention on the road, and at car shows

Hurricanes Irma and Maria both hit the United States Virgin Islands in September, 2017 as rare Category 5 storms. Caneel Bay Resort on St. John, USVI was devastated. About 130 of the resorts 166 rooms were destroyed. Many buildings on the resort grounds are beyond repair. The resort will require a massive rebuilding effort if it ever hopes to re-open.

 

Located where a historic sugar plantation once stood, Caneel Bay Resort (formerly Caneel Bay Plantation) occupies its own 170 acre peninsula on the island of St. John, USVI within the 5,000-acre Virgin Islands National Park. Set on 170 acres the resort's 166 guest rooms (no televisions or telephones) blend seamlessly into the landscape in close proximity to the seven white-sand beaches that frame the resort. The beaches are Honeymoon, Little Caneel, Caneel, Paradise, Scott, Turtle Bay and Hawksnest.

 

Caneel Bay Plantation was founded by philanthropist and conservationist Laurance Rockefeller in December 1956. Rockefeller designed the hotel as one of the country's first eco-resorts -- muted lighting, the buildings are unobtrusive. Caneel's beaches were featured in the 2015 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Recent dining options included ZoZo's at the Sugar Mill, Turtle Bay Estate House, Caneel Beach Terrace, Caneel Beach Bar & Grill and Cannella. Prior to the back-to-back category 5 hurricanes in 2017 the Caneel Bay Managing Director was Nikolay Hotze and the Executive Chef was Kyle Woodruff.

 

The resort was purchased by CBI Acquisition LLC in 2004, whose principal shareholder and investor was Gary D. Engle, President and Chief Executive Officer of Equis Financial Group based in Westport, Connecticut. CBI Acquisition LLC (the holding company) bought Caneel from New York based Deutsche Bank. Equis Financial Group was formed in 1980 and is a privately held financial services organization. Equis is in the business of acquiring, managing, financing and remarketing of assets. Gary Engle is now the CEO of Stoneleigh Capital. Stoneleigh includes in its portfolio Caneel Bay Resort.

 

In 1983 Laurance Rockefeller (Jackson Hotel Preserve) transferred the property to the National Park Service with a 40 year retained use estate (RUE). The RUE is set to expire in 2023. CBI Acquisitions LLC is making efforts to extend the RUE an additional 40 years. Such an extension would allow the owner, CBI Acquisition LLC to secure financing to undertake capital improvements that would not be possible financially under the remaining term of the current retained use estate. Whether Caneel Bay Resort is repaired and ready for business by 2020 after the damage inflicted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria depends on what Congress (H. R. 4731) does about extending Caneel’s lease.

 

Writer's note: I worked at Caneel Bay Plantation from 1971-1973 with several job titles including receptionist, night auditor, food and beverage auditor, cost controller and assistant manager at Cinammon Bay Campground. My supervisors were Doris Ruser (controller), George Pynn (Assistant Manager) and Richard Erb (General Manager).

I remember a brace of East European car companies making their debuts throughout the 1980's motorshows, new brands like Dacia, Zastava and ARO all full of promise of budget motoring. I believe that the first commercial ones arrived in the UK 1979, but civilian versions came 3 years later - they sold a reasonable number from what I recall. These despite being a Romanian company were built in Portugal with Diahatsu engines - then remarketed into the UK as the Dacia Duster in the mid 80's. I have no idea when the last ones where imported - at a guess not beyond the early 90's - I also have a couple of snaps somewhere of some Dusters too.

Ever noticed how some online business just pop out of nowhere?

 

How some businesses achieve such enviable fame in such a short space of time?

 

The secret lies with ‘influencer marketing’ – a type of marketing that focuses on using key leaders to drive your brand’s message to the larger market.

Like traditional print media, bloggers and influencers can control your brands reputation, influence purchasing behaviours, impact your SEO and drive traffic to your website, as well as being the gatekeepers to your target audience.

 

Nielsen BuzzMetrics found that 90% of consumers trust recommendations from people they know and 70% trust consumer opinions that are posted on an online source. These are high percentages that can’t be ignored, don’t you agree?

 

WATCH: Rosalind Shimmen discusses influencer marketing at IJL 2016

 

In the digital marketing world, influencer marketing is basically reaching out to popular bloggers and influencers in a particular niche with the goal of convincing them to promote your products or services through their websites and social media platforms.

 

Your mission is to put your content directly in front of the movers and shakers of your industry.

“Wait does that mean I just have to email every blogger I know?” I can hear you asking.

 

Unfortunately, it’s not that easy; it’s all about building relationships.

 

You will find that most brands work along side a traditional PR Agency to utilise their journalist contacts, we work to a similar method. Brands work along side us to utilise the personal relationships we have with bloggers and influencers.

 

We are now the leading network for talent, with over 800 bloggers and influencers and growing. This means we have a pool of talent to choose from when it comes to creating and implementing your influencer marketing campaign.

 

Take a look below where I share my guide to making influencer marketing work for you…

 

Understand your customer before investing in influencer marketing

 

Paint a picture of your existing or desired customer and then use this to identify influencers that fit a similar profile.

Decide what you want to achieve with influencers

 

Once you have identified the influencers you’re keen to work with, come up with fun and creative ways to align your brand with them. If it’s a particular product you would like to push I would suggest product seeding, whereas if it’s a whole range I would suggest a blogger event or trip – the more creative the better.

 

Just recently I ran a special project with Dollie Jewellery, where we took over V Festival with fashion bloggers, Confetti Crowd. Discover more here.

Build a relationship with the bloggers and influencers on your radar

 

If you aren’t able to work with an agency like ourselves, you will need to try and build relationships with bloggers yourself. This can be a time consuming process, but all of the below tips and tricks will help:

 

Share their content on a regular basis via social media

 

Respond to blogger questions on social media and stay engaged

 

Leave comments on the blog/social media posts of your preferred influencers

 

Compliment them on their work to start conversations

Plan your ideal outcomes and send personalised messages to influencers

 

Once you’ve warmed up your entire list, it’s time to reach out. However, it is important to first identify what your purpose is. Are you looking for a retweet of your latest post? Do you want them to feature a product? Be sure of your outcome and then craft a compelling and personalised email that communicates your point and make sure you’ve covered the below components:

 

Sincerity – Be polite and honest

 

Purpose – State your purpose early on. Be brief and concise about it

 

Incentive – What’s in it for the influencer/blogger?

 

Acknowledgement – What made you contact the influencer/blogger?

 

Call to action – Be clear with what you’re asking and outline any time frames or key messages
