Winning the Lottery: How Do Lottery Winners Spend Their Money?

Winning the jackpot in a lottery is a secret dream of everyone. Some people have the courage to go ahead and participate, while others just keep it as a secret ambition forever. Those who participate are the ones who stand a chance to get lucky and when they do win, you get to see the different ways in which people react and respond to the victory. While some people are ecstatic and announce their victory to the world, others behave cautiously and tend to keep their haul a secret. Similarly, the way people tend to spend their money also varies. While some choose to splurge on their lifestyle needs, others judiciously invest the money to make some more. Here we have listed a few ways that people have chosen to spend their winnings from the lottery jackpots:1.Clearing Off Any DebtsLoans are very common occurrences in the families of today. Most people purchase a lot of life’s necessities on loan and these are cleared off slowly in installments. When an individual comes in possession of a large amount of money, the first thoughts are of being free of the loans. A chunk of the winnings is often spent in relieving the burden of loan.2.Invest in PropertySince having a home of one’s own is a major ambition of most people, the winners who are lacking in this area move ahead to secure a home for their future. That is a primary investment for many lottery winners. Then comes the other requirements for a comfortable lifestyle. Those, who already have a home, tend to invest their money in other avenues to secure the future of their families. These investments could be in the field of education or further investments to multiply the growth of the funds.3.Professional GrowthThough many of the winners continue to work, a job in many cases gets replaced by entrepreneurship and some move towards doing charity work or volunteer their time for a social cause as they wish to make a difference in the society. As they have sufficient resources to live a comfortable life, they concentrate on keeping themselves busy while being socially useful. Many give away the money for charitable causes that they believe in. Often, it is related to the suffering that they might have seen in their difficult times.4.Lifestyle ImprovementNot everybody is of a charitable nature. Many people concentrate on improving their own lifestyle and spend their money on acquiring luxuries that they have been craving for. These could include a new mode of transport, home renovation, luxury vacations, and expensive artifacts and jewelry. Some would also consider having a workforce to order around luxury and invest in the same.To be able to enjoy the luxuries offered by your jackpot, it is important to play. And you need not go anywhere far to do this. You can log on to Lottoland, the leading online portal for international lotteries, from the comfort of your home and enjoy the fruits of your investments.See More

Keeping Your Car Secure: 4 Ways to Safeguard Your Vehicle

It is an unfortunate fact that hundreds of thousands of vehicles are stolen and broken into every single year. If you want to avoid being a victim of one of these crimes, then you need to be proactive about protecting your vehicle. Here are a few simple steps that all drivers can take to safeguard their cars and trucks.Hide All ValuablesOne of the most effective ways to reduce your risk of your car being broken into is to hide all valuables. Most break-ins are crimes of opportunity, and the average criminal is going to ignore your vehicle completely if the doors are locked and they don’t see any valuables. If you can’t take your valuables with you, then you should lock them in the trunk or glove compartment, out of sight.Install a Modern Security SystemCutting-edge security systems are extremely effective and packed with a wide variety of useful features. Some security systems will send an alert to a driver’s phone whenever the doors are opened or someone pulls on a handle while the door is locked. Others can send messages directly to the police when a car is being broken into. Once you have installed your new security system, you should consider placing a security system decal or sticker in the window to deter criminals.Park in Your GarageAnother simple step that you can take to prevent a break-in is to park your vehicle in a garage whenever possible. Criminals want to leave the area with your valuables within a matter of seconds, and that is going to be much more difficult if they have to get into your garage as well. If you don’t trust your current setup to keep out thieves, you might want to consider upgrading or repairing your garage door or installing a high-quality garage door opening system. If you aren’t able to park in your garage, then you should leave your car in a well-lit area such as a busy city street. A car that is parked in a dark alley away from bystanders will be much more appealing to criminals.Block or Tint All of the WindowsBreaking into a vehicle only to find out that there is nothing of value inside is a situation that criminals will try to avoid at all costs. In addition to locking your doors and hiding all of your valuables, you should try to block or tint the windows as well. Before you have your windows tinted, you need to spend some time researching local tinting laws. Many areas have different laws regarding how dark your windows can be, and you could receive an expensive ticket if your windows are improperly tinted.While you will never be able to make your vehicle completely impervious to criminals, you can do quite a bit to reduce your risk of being a victim. A few simple upgrades and parking in the safest locations will make your vehicle much less enticing to car thieves and other criminals.See More

Are Your Digital Retailing Efforts A-Maze-Ing?

While the components of digital retailing have existed within our industry for some time, digital retailing as a concept has not. Indeed, dealers could sell a vehicle entirely online in the past. And many have done so. But they’ve done so by cobbling together a less than perfect experience for the customer involving multiple widgets, phone calls, emails, and information --nonetheless, they did succeed to some degree. In my opinion, digital retailing is a buzzword today for two simple reasons. First, most major retailers have adopted technology that enables customers to transact with them via the consumer’s preferred method – one that is easy, effortless and, frequently, without them having to leave their house. This increasing trend is a direct catalyst for the second reason digital retailing is a “hot” term today: While car dealers have offered consumers some components of digital retailing for years now, few of these actually lead the customer down any clear path that got them closer to the sale. Today, technology offers a new/novel way to combine all elements into a sophisticated package that is greater than the sum of its parts and therefore is new. In my last blog, I share the most critical metric to measure a dealership’s digital retailing consumer experience – engagement. The reason engagement is the best metric to determine success is quite simple. Your customers will tell you to what degree and how far they feel comfortable taking the transaction in a purely digital realm before they stop and come into the store to complete the purchase. The problem is that the current mishmash of digital retailing components and widgets dealers have today create a disconnectedness. This inhibits higher digital retailing success rates as follows: CTA Overload – Multiple widgets mean a ton of CTAs Just as in any maze, it is possible to offer TOO many entrances with a plethora of widgets placed all over the website hoping that at least ONE of these will bring the dealership a lead. And, for the most part, these widgets are not connected with each other. So, a customer may go into one just to be presented with a dead end, forced to return to the beginning to find a new entrance to the maze… or leave and never try again. Too many CTAs confuse customers. If those CTAs don’t all lead towards the same pathway which brings them closer to a transaction, they won’t stay around long. Best strategy? Ensure you don’t overload visiting customers with CTAs and remove any redundant CTAs from your website as they are just slowing it down. Any you do offer should all be connected and work together to guide the customer closer to their goal (and yours) of purchasing a vehicle. Position and Placement of CTA buttons –. Are your dealership's CTAs in appropriate places on your website? In other words, do they make sense in a conversion strategy? It's one thing to offer many different ways to START the customer on the journey. However, once started, is there a clear path to reward? First, the "button" that leads to digital retail is probably the most clicked button on your VDP and should be visible above the fold on the VDP; ideally, the largest button on the page. Then, the best way to increase your digital retailing success is to ensure that all funnel entrances lead customers along the same pathway. While there may be many ways into the maze, it is best to offer something akin to a guided tour from whichever entrance the customer chooses, all of the way through to the end of the maze. Dealership Operations – Last, but absolutely not least, all of these digital conveniences offered to your customers must be tightly interwoven into your dealership’s operational strategy and processes. There is nothing more frustrating for a consumer attempting to purchase something than to have to complete the same tasks repeatedly. Digital retailing isn’t necessarily supposed to replace the traditional buying experience, it should merely enhance it for those consumers that want to get some of the heavy lifting out of the way. Of course, a well-designed digital retailing platform could enable a customer to complete the entire transaction online. But, at least for now, in the automotive industry, we’re talking somewhere around just 2% of customers who actually complete the entire purchase all the way online. So, the best strategy is to let the customer do as much as they want to online. THEN ensure that when that customer does come into the store, they do not have to repeat any part of the research and sale cycle that they have already done. In the automotive industry, digital retailing is perceived by many as a way for consumers to complete everything from start to finish online. This, however, is inaccurate. With 98% of car shoppers choosing to complete the transaction in-store, the best way to view digital retailing is as a way to make the car shopping experience more manageable and less time-consuming for your customers. The majority of car shoppers will complete as much of the process online that they feel comfortable with -- then come in. The trick is to ensure that each and every customer is taken down the same pathway, that the steps are clear and easy to understand and that, when they abandon the online processes and come in, whatever they completed online is preserved and available in store – in its entirety. The customer should just experience a smooth and seamless online to instore transition, rather than wasting a bunch of time online for nothing. This is what digital retailing is REALLY all about and how it will increase your dealership’s sales revenue. By deploying a digital retailing “solution," rather than a bunch of unconnected digital retailing "components," dealers will end up with fat bank accounts and happy customers.See More

Cut The Cord On Third-Party Data

Like any sales company, dealerships want to get their messaging and advertisements out to as many people as possible. It’s historically been a numbers game: throw as much as you can at a wall and see what sticks. That is no longer the case. Customers expect more personal interactions, and targeting the wrong customer is more than just wasted money—it’s potentially damaging to your dealership’s reputation. Here’s how. Third-Party Data is Often WrongThird-party data is purchased from an external source, like an insurance company or media publication, and is sometimes used to market to a larger audience. Unfortunately, that data is often incorrect or incomplete. Aside from the fact that you have no idea when the data was acquired, sometimes third-party companies only have the information for a small share of the market. To try to make the data seem better or more complete, those companies will simply estimate and fill in what they think is the right data. But that means you’re paying for guesses. Third-Party Data is Easily AccessibleLet’s say your dealership pays $1,000 for 20,000 prospects. That also means that every dealership in the country (and every other company as well) can purchase those same 20,000 prospects for the same price. That data is not exclusive to you in any way. And after scrubbing the data for geographic region, viable contact information, and deduplication, you may have few to no prospects left at all. That’s $1,000 of your marketing budget down the drain. And even if you do find a few hundred prospects in that list, so did all your competitors, and those targets are going to be pelted with emails that may very well seem like spam to the customer. Marketing with Third-Party Data is Sketchy at BestThere are laws in the US and across the world like the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that protect people from being targeted with advertisements without their consent. Crossing that line could cost your dealership hundreds of thousands of dollars. By marketing with third-party data, you’re toeing that line. And when email service providers see the high bounce rates and number of emails going straight to the spam folder, your company’s reputation takes a nose dive. You’ll likely get blacklisted, meaning that none of your emails will make it to your customers’ inboxes—even customers in your DMS. What You Can Do Instead: Use the Data You Already HaveGet the most out of your dealership’s first-party data—that’s the information you have about your own customers. It’s free, you already have a relationship with the customer, and it’s much more likely to be accurate. You’ll be able to spot trends and then use those trends to start sending the right message to customers at the right place in the buying process. And if you’re not tracking it or don’t know what to do with it, it’s easy to get help from someone who knows the landscape. Some companies even offer AI-driven targeting to help you segment and identify specific groups of high-quality prospects in your DMS, which can result in massive improvements in engagement and revenue. First-Party Data Allows Customization, TooCustomizing marketing messages has a surprisingly large effect on customer behavior. According to a study by Accenture, 56% of customers are more likely to purchase from a retailer that recognizes them by name and 65% are more likely to purchase from a retailer who knows their purchase history. And first-party data allows you to market to customers based on their relationship with your company, which can dramatically affect conversion rates. How to Get the Most Out of Your DataTo save your store’s reputation and stretch your marketing dollars, we recommend relying primarily on data that’s yours—not the kind that’s compiled through a third party. Tapping into your own DMS, tracking trends, and customizing your marketing for your customers is a simple—and cost-effective—way to strategically increase sales and ROs without putting your business at risk.See More

A Mobile First Strategy is the Future of Marketing

Consumers increasingly use mobile devices to view content online. Study after study cites the fact that mobile devices are on a continued rise as the preferred medium for content. They surpassed desktops not too long ago and will undoubtedly continue to rise in dominance. Mobile devices are always at hand, can be used almost anywhere, and are a convenient way to consume content. Because of this, marketers are on the lookout for the preferred type of content consumers want to view on their mobile devices. What's easier to do on a mobile device? Reading an article or watching a video? If you answered watching a video, then you're in the majority.  Video ad spend is expected to reach over $100 billion by 2023, accounting for 80 percent of all Internet traffic according to a recent article on MarTech. Facebook was the first to tie “mobile first” to “video first” as a strategy for brands. Why? Well, think about the billions of Facebook users and its unlimited content. Facebook knows where people browse on their site and, more importantly, what type of content they pay the most attention to. And that content is video. Just look at the evolution of video. Why do you think we’ve progressed from stitched photo videos to real-time video and now 360 degree, augmented and virtual reality video? It’s not because marketers want it. It’s because consumers want it. There is simply no other reason to create a strategy and invest the time and effort into content production. Look at Netflix. It went from a small mail-order movie rental company into one that dominates consumer’s televisions with streaming content. It is now one of the fastest and most prolific producers of original content in the country. Why would it choose to make that investment? Because that’s what consumers want! Netflix knows that the more eyeballs it can get, the more money it can make. And that's precisely how you should be viewing video content. Video continues to dominate every form of content delivery. It takes less effort to consume and is more immersive. It’s easier to consume on mobile devices and captures more details in a way that text can’t. A consumer can’t really “see” a car by reading a Monroney sticker. They can, however, kick its virtual tires online and cruise through and around it via video. Video content is here to stay. Not only is it here to stay, but marketers that fail to use it – and fail to have a robust mobile and video strategy – will quickly find themselves left behind eating their competitors' dust. And, more importantly, left behind by their potential customers. Decide now to increase your video content production efforts and include mobile in your strategy. You will quickly find that not only do your customers like it… but so does your bank account.See More

Rethinking the NFL Draft Model—Marketing as QB

Tonight four of the top draft picks in the NFL Draft are expected to be quarterbacks. Meanwhile, two of the top 32 will be wide receivers. Recently I visited with one of the top collegiate quarterback coaches in the nation. “There’s a saying in football that the further away you get from the ball, the less a part of the team you are. Quarterbacks are team leaders and offensive lineman are typically good teammates. On the other hand, wide receivers and cornerbacks, they do their own thing. They live on an island and aren’t really all that connected to the team as you might otherwise think,” he said. It made me think. Would we be better off to look at “Marketing” as the Quarterback and “Sales” as the Wide Receiver in today’s automotive retail environment? When the quarterback comes to the line of scrimmage, he assesses the situation, makes an adjustment, calls out an audible and starts the play.  Further out, the wide receiver hears the adjustment, runs the route and maybe out of their five teammates the play results in a completed pass. Call it 20% odds. Even steeper odds, the wide receiver might catch a touchdown pass. When the big play does come, we celebrate the success. Sales anyone? The football analogy works for a sales environment where marketing functions as the QB. Read the analytics, connect with the people, adjust the view and deliver the plan.  Sales becomes the wide receiver. Marketing becomes the QB and knows what everyone is doing; however, the wide receiver just knows his route and that the goal is to score points. Not unlike the NFL Draft, in today’s Big Data world, who you select as your quarterback will impact your team much more so than who’s playing wide receiver. Who is the quarterback at your dealership?See More

Green Packaging for Having Cost-Effective and Quality Packaging Solution

Green PackagingGreen packaging is a modern solution to a lot of our problems. Many companies make different kinds of boxes and ship them to you to use them. Every day, orders of thousands of boxes are placed.These boxes create a lot of waste to be disposed of, as not a lot of people are a fan of recycling different items. This creates environmental issues, which are then resolved by the green packaging solutions. It is a more nature-friendly way of packing everything and not harming our environment in any way.Why is Green Packaging important?Green packaging plays a very important role in all our lives. As still a lot of people do not believe in global warming, it is the bitter reality of our world now.When even any single thing is burned, it affects our ozone layer and starts creating more dangerous gases in our environment than the important ones.Every day, many companies send their shipments, which are then forwarded further. Whereas the main purpose of packaging is protecting your things from any harm, many people now use it for marketing purposes too. They have started packing the stuff up in the boxes, which did not even need any packaging.This creates a huge environmental problem, as the used products need to be disposed of and get ridden of. A lot of plastic bags, Styrofoam, cardboard, and paper, are burnt in the open air every day. Some people do not like burning this all up, throw them in the water, and make it a problem for sea life.Green packaging is the packaging, which takes fewer resources and does not create much problem while disposing of it for any life on earth.Green Packaging Costs LessAs we, all know that these packaging boxes are mainly made out of the recycled paper and things, they, charge less than other kinds of boxes.They can be very cost effective, and you might not feel a lot of difference when you first look at it, but as you start buying more and more packaging boxes in bulk, you will realize that they can make you save up to thousands of dollars every year.This money would help you get betterments at other aspects of your business instead of just spending on the boxes blindly.Quality of Green PackagingGreen packaging offers the best quality and more respect for all your products. Of course, all your products are new and have a lot of value in the market, but the boxes that you are packing them in are better to be old to raise your respect in the market.The more people who come to know about this packaging technique, the more they would be interested in spending your eco-friendly packaging.It offers excellent quality products, which can then even used to pack your food and ship them. Food has a lot of hygiene problems, and people do not like having them in the recycled boxes. But there is like two times more people who believe that recycled boxes are the best ones to use no matter what kind of product you want to pack.These packaging boxes are as clean as any other boxes that have been used for food packaging for a long time.Designing Your Green Packaging Boxes:Your green packaging boxes are not like other boxes. They are different and deserve to be noticed differently. They are your one step closer to success.While you are packing something in these boxes, you do not have to overdo your designing. The ideal designing on these boxes would be just your logo and a little description of the product. You can also always mention on the boxes that they are a part of green packaging and to gain more fame among normal people and also activists.There are a lot of trends going on in the market related to these boxes but to focus on being different from everyone, you need to come up with something unique by designing the boxes in different ways.The Main Concept of Green PackagingGreen packaging is just all about trying to conserve all the energy and trying to make your boxes strong with the least stuff used in it.After it was pointed out that what these packaging boxes are doing to our environment, many people started trying to find solutions to these problems. As packaging is a need, not an option, so this part of life could not be eliminated from the business or marketing to conserve the environment. That is quite when people came up with the idea of packaging their products in the green packaging boxes.Green Packaging in futureAs we have all assumed the future according to our understanding, the future of the packaging will be green packaging. There are a lot of reasons behind that. As they do not harm much of our environment and are easy to dispose of, they will be in the market for a long time.Many shoppers do not admire these packaging boxes due to their quality and strength. Green packaging is the absolute future of all our packaging problems in the future, and this trend will be continued for around several decades.Using these packaging boxes from now, when the trend has just begun would allow you to promote this culture hand in hand and flaunt about your this activation later when it is finally the time to collect your reward.This is just going to make your company have a stronger base and would not be harmful to you or your products in any way.Green packaging has already been introduced in the packaging of almost all kinds of products, and you can choose the right kinds of boxes that you want for your products.The sizes and styles can vary according to your need of course.See More

When it Comes to Sales & Service, Don't Be A Zombie!

We have all heard of the ABCs of Sales (Always Be Closing), but I would like to turn that around to Customer Service – Always Be Considerate!If you put yourself in your customer’s shoes and Consider where they are coming from, what are their pain points, what can you do to help… you will be a hero! Not to say that you will always have the answer or a fix for whatever is troubling them right away, but let's face it, often times our clients have a hard time expressing what it is that will satisfy them when they are frustrated. Clients may not need something urgently, they may merely want to feel as if they are heard, are valued, that they are not forgotten about.As for the rest of the alphabet; Be DependablePractice great work EthicForgive your clients when they lash outBe Generous with your timeBe as Helpful as possibleRely on your InstinctsDon’t always try to Justify mistakesAlways be KindListen to your clientsBe a Master of your craftDon’t be NegativeBe Open to new ideas & approachesProvide excellent customer serviceAsk QuestionsBe ResponsiveKeep things SimpleTry your bestUnderstand the product you are supportingBe the Voice of the customerWelcome feedbackHave a hobby, like playing the Xylophone (just seeing if you are paying attention)Be Yourself, your customer will know if you are a fakeDon’t be a Zombie, your clients will know when you are just going through the motionsSee More
