How to Hook Potential Customers with Funnel Marketing

Luring in customers with funnel marketing is a little like fishing. They don't take the bait at first, but they're curious. So you show them a little more, and they move in closer.

This is not a monolithic group by any means. Millennials are more racially diverse, far more politically independent than any other demographic group, and more likely to be unaffiliated with a religion. These young people have grown up in a culture of individuality. They have been praised for their talents and rewarded for their successes. They don’t settle into the typical rites of passage that their predecessors did, such as getting married, buying a home and having children at socially appropriate times. They may not do any of these things, or they may do them at non-typical stages of life.

6 Tips to Make Sure Your Writing is Really Done

Whether you're writing an article, blog post or news release, it's crucial to ensure your work is written in an authoritative yet approachable style. Making certain that your writing is free of typographical errors, misspellings and grammar blunders will improve content clarity and improve readability. That means more than skimming and running spell check to catch typos and obvious errors. Look over your work closely to avoid errors like run-on sentences, comma splices and subject-verb agreement, as well as to ensure your work has proper flow and tone.

Mistakes are bound to happen occasionally, but paying close attention, keeping your eyes out for common problems and giving your work multiple reads can keep errors to a minimum. Take a look at some common problem areas for which diligence can pay off.
