I have witnessed a great surge in dog food quality, and I am glad that the creators of these dog food brands are doing this. I am all for the premium brands because my dogs seem to enjoy this more. According to Wikipedia, the growth of premium dog food brands is certainly on the rise. I have witnessed this first hand with some powerful new dog food brands that are sweeping the pet food stores like Pet Smart. In the beginning, I was sort of skeptical about the price increases, but I read more about this and saw that the producers were spending more on the making the food. I don’t have enough to buy the premium brands all the time, but I enjoy giving my dog the occasional duck jerky or dog treat burgers that are on the market. I like buying food from Beneful that can help strengthen the teeth of my dogs. This is a good thing, and I believe that Beneful is one of the pioneers of the healthy dog food revolution. Beneful started with the vegetables and the brand just keep getting stronger over the years. I think that the brand has survived because it has implement real meats while other have continued with a lot of processed ingredients that dogs do not really care for. Beneful is a leader in variety, and this makes a big difference. There are lots of different breeds of dogs, and a true dog food company needs variety to accommodate a lot of different customers. That is what Beneful recognized early, and that is why Amazon customers continue to be loyal to this organization. It is certain that this company is among the best in premium foods, and it was wise to make the variety of dog food an essential part of their branding strategy. Premium dog foods are very important because this will contribute to better health for dogs. This is what has led me to take more interest in this. I believe that brands that produce healthier dog foods will increase their revenues over time.
Ricardo Guimarães, the President of BMG Bank, decided to honor his passion for football by sponsoring football teams. It’s no secret Guimarães loves football, but he also loves the banking business. Mr. Guimarães, decided to combine his love of football with his love of banking, and the result is a marriage that has been beneficial for football and for BMG Bank. BMG Bank is the proud sponsor of teams like Atletico Mineiro, and the bank also sponsors players that are well-known in Brazil.
On game days, football fans can’t help but see the orange BMG Bank logo on the jerseys of the top players in Brazil. Brazilians stop what they are doing on football days. They turn on the TV and watch football. Nothing else matters when games are being played, and thanks to that narrow focus BMG Bank is getting an enormous amount of exposure. BMG Bank quietly promotes bank products during matches, and that subtle marketing approach has paid off. BMG Bank is known as the football bank, and that title carries a lot of weight with Brazilians.
Thanks to football, BMG Bank is known as the bank that will give Brazilians payroll loans. Payroll loans are profit-producers for banks. BMG Bank has an 18 percent market share in the payroll loan business. That 18 percent market share gives BMG Bank more than $63R billion in revenue every year. In fact, the demand for BMG Bank’s payroll loans is so big that Guimarães decided to buy two other banks to meet the demand, according to an article published by R7.com.
Ricardo Guimarães is one of the masterminds behind payroll loans in Brazil. He is known as a banker’s banker because he was born into the banking business. His family started BMG Bank in 1930, and he took over as president in 1998. Ricardo is the main reason BMG Bank is where it is today. Ricardo is an astute businessman, leader and football lover.
Doe Deere is the CEO and founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics. Born in Russia then raised in New York City, she wants to promote cosmetics as a form of self expression and freedom, not just make-up to cover imperfections. Her line of cosmetics gives women a freedom to enjoy the moment. It allows you to express yourself and your individuality. Her mission is to change the public’s perception that make-up makes everyone look perfect. Her line includes bold colors. She encourages women to be rule breakers. Rules are not suppose to bind us but guide us. She believes that the rules of fashion are generic. Everyone should not look the same because being unique and whimsical shows individuality. She also thinks that her line is stylish even with her carefree line of bold colors for hair, lips, and face. Every women should try to break at least some of the outdated rules of fashion such as “Don’t wear a bold eye with a bold lip” or “Don’t mix too many patterns”. “You have to dress your age” and “Don’t wear socks with open toed shoes or heels”. These restrictions are out dated and limit women’s creativity. Gone are the days where we all had to look and be alike. Be you and love it!
As an entrepreneur and business woman, she occasionally speaks to groups about achieving your goals and dreams. She has first hand knowledge as she started out small and then later achieved her own success in her own way. She mentors and sponsors other female entrepreneurs so she can share her knowledge and strategies with others. She promotes positive attitudes and intuition. She is also a huge advocate for treating colleagues and employees with respect and kindness. She feels the old way of demanding respect from employees is out of date and wrong. She wants people to want to work for her and her company. She feels they will be more productive and vested if they are happy to be working there.
She is very excited about the shift in consumers from stores to internet. Focusing on her line of cosmetics as they are placed on a website has led to huge growths in sales. This trend enables small businesses to reach customers without a physical address or building. This is exciting news for businesses and consumers alike. No more are we tied to the old ways of shopping. It opens the door for new businesses to share produces that otherwise couldn’t be available to the general public. E-commerce is the direction shopping is heading.
What can you do if your business is showing a one star rating. Well, you can follow the example of Slapfish restaurant owner. His restaurant received so many bad reviews that it drove his rating down. The issue seemed to be customers felt his plate portions were too small for the prices. Immediately, Andrew Gruel (the owner) reconfigured his menu prices and increased portions. He even went so far as to send out emails urging customers to give his restaurant another chance. And it worked – but he put in the work to turn that one star rating into a five star. If he had not been tracking his business’s online reputation, the downward spiral could have gone on unnoticed for some time.
According to Darius Fisher, President of Status Labs, an online reputation management firm, this business did the right thing. Status Lab’s specialty is fixing bad digital reputations, whether it be in crisis mode, or proactively teaching businesses how to be internet smart. He states that one way to successfully counteract negative information is by engaging your target audience with compelling content that will result in renewed consumer interest and sales.
By using a press release, for example, Status Labs teaches how a PR pitch in an email should be no more than six sentences. The value of knowing who your target audience will be and making sure the journalist has accurate information and good high-resolution images is key. When you pitch your story, stay on topic of the subject matter. This is only one of the many ways to get positive information into the digital expanse. Also, Status Labs are experts in finding and removing personal information, images and posts that are shining a bad light on your company. For the average person, this task is almost impossible. But for Status Labs, they do it everyday for hundreds of clients all over the world.
If you are like me, you know how hard it can be to raise a puppy. They are one of the pickiest eaters and food is, more times than not, used for play rather than eats. I turn to Beneful when it came to what I feed my full-grown dogs, so why not use them for puppy food as well? Below are just a few of the items I would recommend for that growing puppy of yours. These items will keep them healthy and growing at a steady rate.
I’ll start with the obvious choice: Purina Store’s Beneful Healthy Puppy with real chicken. Meal times are the most important part of the day for a growing puppy. You need to set time aside in your day to make sure they are getting well-balanced meals and consuming them as well. This meal-time favorite leaves no leftovers in the bowl after my puppies have at it. This is one of the few dry dog foods that my puppies will eat and with ease. It has a nice mixture of protein, fibers, calcium, and the meat to veggie ratio your growing puppy can tolerate. I would recommend this item from Beneful as your top option for feeding your dogs on a day-to-day basis.
After they have experienced the taste for the puppy blend, it is always good to mix-it-up to wean them off of it as they grow larger. A second step in producing a healthy puppy can be associated with Purina‘s Original Dry Dog food with chicken. The protein content is cut down slightly, but you are getting a new vegetable variety with the chicken they already have come to love. It is a great way to get them started on eating foods not specifically for puppies. I usually use the Healthy Puppy blend for the first few weeks to a month and then transfer to this blend as they get older. Their recognition of the chicken taste will help condition them into ignoring the not so desired taste of the vegetables.
In sticking with the heavy dose of the chicken and veggies diet, your puppy will really enjoy the wet dog food and Beneful’s Chopped Blends. I recommend the blend with the chicken, tomatoes, carrots, and wild rice. This offers them a great source of protein once again and can be used if they don’t take so well to the dry food at first. I like to mix meals every so often, and they enjoy this wet food almost as if it were like a treat. Basically this translates into going out to eat rather than staying home for dinner in a puppy mentality. If you are more of a believer in dry foods, then this is the blend your puppy will really take a liking to. What good does it do to raise a puppy if you can’t treat them every so often? Well at Beneful they have the creation that will meet your puppies’ needs perfectly: Beneful Baked Delights. These are a great tool for obedience training and potty training alike. I recommend the Star shapes that contain the chicken and cheese. My puppies love these and it helps them learn about what doing the right thing can produce for them.
Puppies will be puppies at the end of the day, but that’s not to say we can’t support their growing process. Take a few of these items into consideration when deciding on what to feed your dog to help flourish their growth.
