  • It’s always a great idea to make your own, in as much that there are fast-food smoothies available, you’ll be much in control of what goes into your smoothies if you’re making it yourself.
  • Make use of fruits or vegetable in season, visit your local farmer’s market and see what they have.  That way you can ensure that you’re using on the freshest of ingredients.
  • Be watchful of the ingredients especially when you are having your smoothie as meal, check that you have protein and fiber to help keep you full.
  • Try to avoid ingredients that will give you calories in form of sugar and saturated fat.  You want to make sure of course that your healthy smoothies are ‘healthy.’
  • Examples of those ingredients are flavored yogurt (always go for the plain one), whipped cream, canned fruit in syrup, sugar-sweetened fruit juice, or full-fat dairy products.
  • Take note of the proportion as well, aim for 300-400 calories if you’re having your smoothies for meal and keep it below 300 if it’s for snack or in-between meals.
  • Don’t be afraid to experiment on ingredients that may sound unfamiliar or unusual for your liking because you’ll never know, it could easily become your favorite.  For instance try adding flaxseed, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger.

“A simple system that anybody can follow to potentially make more money than they ever have before.”

That decision spawned an idea that’s kind of turned into this bizarre phenomenon called the 'Fight the Forces of Evil' tool-kit.
It wound up having a strange effect on the majority of the people I showed it to:
- It made them want it.
- And it made the people they showed it to want it too.

People from all walks of life have found themselves unable to resist the power of the 2 'Mesmer Effect' questions that are part of this simple system. These are the 2 questions you have to ask if you want someone to buy from you without ever feeling like they’re being sold to. It’s the secret to the art “selling without selling”. They found themselves wanting to be part of a company that has a purpose, where they can also potentially earn more than anywhere else.

And they began passing it on, and the people they passed it on to also pass it on. All that passing on gets products into the hands of business owners and regular people who really need them. And the coolest part is, along the way, all that passing it on has help many people earn more than they have anywhere else.

Email Marketing Strategy

While it will take hard work and persistence, building an email marketing strategy is an important key to your business’ success.

It may take a few tries to get it exactly right. Stop using a technique if it's not getting the results you expected. Try a variety of techniques until you find those that work best for your business.

Email Marketing Tips

When following up to your customers via email, you could try following up with some kind of reminder. For example, you could add a "visit today" button onto your ad. In addition, the closing of the postscript could inform your customers to make sure they do not disregard the CTO.

Provide your customers with useful tips or information in each marketing newsletter. Think of the newsletter as an opportunity to demonstrate your expertise in your field. Your customers will trust you more when they see how much you know and will be more likely to buy products or services from you.

 

Email Marketing Messages

If you want your email marketing messages to be successful, make sure you have permission to send them. If you do not have permission from your recipients, the potential consequences can range from being added to spam filters all the way up to getting blacklisted by Internet service providers themselves.

The emails you send out as part of your marketing campaign should start out with a welcoming, personalized tone. Include the name of the recipient in the subject line and the opening of the message. This will make your customers feel more receptive to your message and be more likely to patronize your business.

If you have images or graphics, put them on the left side of the email message. Make sure that your call to action element is always on this side. Research has documented that this location produces almost double the number of clicks to your product, service or website than placing these elements anywhere else does.

Tailor your emails and landing pages for mobile users as well as those using desktops. Keep in mind that Smartphones have tiny screens that may not be compatible with the way you have your emails formatted. Trim the width so that your emails can be read by users without them having to re-size them.

Have a strong call to action in your email marketing campaign and position it to be seen, offer a clear call to action and deliver it in a way that can't be missed.

Now that you've read this article, apply these tips, and you're sure to see results. Feel free to experiment with what you've learned and develop new strategies of your own email marketing.

Through this system of exchange artisans from different parts of the world, mainly from developing countries, are given the opportunity to participate in the international trade without selling out, they are compensated for their artistry and hard work in a fair and ethical way.  Artisans are able to capitalize their creativity through the help of fair trade funding and cooperatives to venture in the competitive global market.

According to the World Fair Trade Organization or the WFTO, Fair trade is a system of exchange that seeks to create greater equity and partnership in the international trading system by:

-  Providing fair wages in the local context,

-  Supporting safe, healthy, and participatory workplaces,

-  Supplying financial and technical support to build capacity,

-  Promoting environmental sustainability,

- Respecting cultural identity,

- Offering public accountability and transparency,

- Building direct and long-term relationships, and

-  Educating consumers.

Fair Trade empowers and gives hope to the poorest of the poor that they, too, can succeed in the international market and help themselves to rise through poverty and live a better life and brighter future for their children.

In fair trade, producers or artisans are thought not just the value of hard work but encourages them as well to take the initiative to work their way to better their lives especially in the developing countries.  Through fair trade, they are expected to embrace independence as opposed to relying solely on the aid or charity from other people.

By providing them the opportunity and the break they needed to compete fairly in the market trade, their confidence is tremendously improved allowing them to continue on creating quality fair trade products or produce that will mark their place in the trading world.  Fair Trade also stresses the importance of building relationships as well as recognizing cultural identities in order to achieve a successful and worthwhile commerce trading.

Always remember that by supporting fair trade products in the market, it will not only produce job opportunities for these artisans which will empower their families economically but will also protect the environment by promoting a more sustainable lifestyle.

Sadly, it seems that the right and left campaign about earth preservation and conservation are not enough to get through some people.  This is the very reason why eco-activist like us, should never waver in our mission to continuously educate as much people as we can in the most creative way possible.  There is no such thing as too much when it comes to raising awareness about protecting and conserving our environment.  It’s only ideal that we continue to do so until every person on the planet could no longer play dumb and pretend to not know.

 

Art changes people and people change the world.

You can get creatively green through meaningful arts project and leave a longer lasting impression to the public especially to young children.  Art has its way of getting into people and what better way to convey an important message, such as saving our planet, but through arts, right?  And to make it even sweeter, you can involve as much people as possible in the creating process which will give them a sense of responsibility and pride at the same time.

Harness the creativity in you and come up with DIY projects using recyclable materials that children can participate in.  By doing activities like these you can teach them about recycling and about trash management as well.  You can make use of materials that they are commonly exposed to, like plastic water bottles or throwaways for instance.  Using items that they are familiar with will give them the sense of reality about the issue and hopefully will make them see the urgency of coming up with solutions to solve the problem. 

You’d be surprised to find out how the little ones can tend to be more receptive of this kind of stuff more than the adult does.  Children do have the innocence in them that sees things as it is.  Their thought process is quite simple - it’s not good to litter, period.  Compare to “it’s-not-good-to-litter-but-I’m-too-lazy-to-find-the-trash-can,” thought processing.  This is the reason why it’s very important to instill values in them, even at an early age, about living sustainably.

 

If you look hard, you’ll find art in trash.

With creativity, you can find a number of ways to create something out of what we would normally consider as trash.  In fact a lot of artists are now combining making arts and environmental activism into one.  By doing so, it challenge ones creativity in coming up with artworks that will showcase not just their artistic capabilities but their statement about environmental awareness as well.

So, get creatively green and save our planet.  Look around you and see the arts hiding beneath that unsightly pile of trash.  Express yourself through your artworks and continuously bring environmental awareness to the public.  Make art.  Make a statement.
