Go for GREAT.

“Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.”
John D. Rockefeller

This quote is so relevant to many aspects of life, and of course business.  John D. Rockefeller didn’t settle for good enough, he strove for greatness, every day.

As a marketing agency, we are constantly challenging clients to strive for greatness across all facets of the brand spectrum and customer experience.  Share of customer attention is increasingly hard to get and good marketing is no longer good enough.  Big changes start with small steps – here are few things you can start doing today to move your business along the path to GREATness:

1. Give your logo and website a mini-makeover

2. Surprise and delight customers every day

3. Craft a Marketing Action Plan for 2013 – and make if fun

4. Spruce up your Facebook Page with a new App or two

5. Go Mobile by launching a mobile friendly website

You can also read one of our favorite books: Good To Great by Jim Collins

它讓神經原在常規的緊張鍛煉中進行共振燃燒,由此帶來健身運動所無法達到的效果。Ion Magnum複雜的振動波是基于於二十多年對神經原燃燒信號的研究手工製作的。 設備製造者的臨床研究結果顯示,30分鐘的治療相當於在健身房10個小時的運動,可以燃燒高達5000卡路里的熱量。其他臨床研究顯示肌肉生成的速度以及脂肪(表面脂肪以及深部脂肪)减少的速度相應都比運動的效果更好。對於Ion Magnum沒有進行理療的部位,甚至會有抗衰老防氧化的效果。 有受試者治療一次之後同一個部位减掉了3-4英寸(不像其他减肥治療中宣稱的那樣,一次治療减掉了5英寸,但那是全身20多個部位加起來减掉的尺寸)。同時,它還可以减掉脖子和下巴的脂肪,讓你的雙下巴消失 . 每次治療需要25分鐘。治療前後的效果非常明顯,而且會持續1-2天。要想達到更好的效果,最好接受1-2個小時的治療。
