The Popular Liquid Indicators

The use of liquids, especially water in the factories is higher than the entire city. A single factory can use up to thousands of gallons of water in a single day. Calculate it and see how much it uses in just a month. Because of the various uses in the factory, water tanks are specially built with the ability to hold a huge quantity of water at a single time. Apart from the water tank, a factory has multiple tanks in its boundaries which contain a variety of liquids. Most of the time all of the tanks contain different types of liquids and some of them can be very dangerous ones such as acids. These liquids are stored for a purpose and procured from the respective merchants.

It becomes necessary to have complete data of all these liquids to learn about the next time a liquid needs to be procured. Since most of the liquids are of different nature, a single liquid level indicator cannot be used with all of them. Hence it is necessary to have a separate liquid level indicator installed with all the tanks. There are different types of level indicators that can be used for measuring the liquids depending on the types of liquids that are present inside the container. The most popularly used liquid level indicators in factories can be listed as under.

Promotional Incentive Campaigns – Perils and Precautions

Needless to say, it is a huge responsibility for marketing to make the right moves to position their brand in the best possible light. In the area of promotional and loyalty incentives, this endeavor opens the door to countless product possibilities, the challenge being to cull down the choices to best fit the specific promotion’s business goal, target audience, and the marketer’s ROI objective.

As if this task isn’t daunting enough on its own, it is just as important to the marketer what they DO NOT choose to represent their brand as what they do choose. Today’s promotional incentives market is a truly global construct, with products coming from every corner of the earth. China still dominates the hard goods category, but more and more products are coming from emerging economies. This globalization is for the long term betterment of the industry, however it also means the marketer must be more vigilant than ever in choosing their branded items. There is always a new latest and greatest product, but quality control can differ greatly from supplier to supplier, regardless of the country of origin.

One doesn’t have to look any further than the McDonald’s Shrek glass promotion in 2010. 12,000,000 glasses were produced and sold at participating McDonald’s for $2 each. It was soon discovered that traces of cadmium were present in the ink graphic on the glasses. Cadmium has been proven to cause cancer. To mitigate the brewing Public Relations disaster, McDonald’s announced that a refund would be given and recommended that the glasses be returned, and a $3 refund would be issued for each glass. Were the Shrek glasses produced in a land “far far away”, with production facilities and standards that were not in line with the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) and FDA? No, the glasses were produced right here in the U.S. Yes, this is an extreme example, however caution must be exercised when your brand is applied to an incentive, or associated with merchandise.

The Purpose Of A Business Logo

Many people think that your brand is basically your business logo. But if you know me and heard any of my presentations, my hope is that you know better. Saying your business is your logo is like taking the Empire State Building and calling it New York City. It is true, Empire State Building does make a good representation of the city and is often illustrated on stamps and book covers as a symbol of New York. But we all know there is a lot more to a city than just one building, no matter how famous it is.

Though your logo is only a part of you brand, I have to agree that it is a very important part of it. Because that’s the first thing people see. When you hand out your business cards with no logo on it, even if they “look professional”, you silently give out an impression that your business is something you do on the side. Your logo is what brings it all together, creating a signature mark not only for your business, but your entire philosophy. And if you don’t have your signature mark, it’s hard to tell what you stand for or what you represent.

Think about a beautiful house with big windows, lots of light, beautiful flowers in the front yard, a couple of trees and a large fancy front entry. Then you enter this house to be even more inspired by what it looks on the inside, hardwood floor, soft and cosy furniture next to a fireplace with every room decorated with love and style. What do you don’t see or even think about is the foundation of this house. The house wouldn’t even exist without the foundation, but if foundation was all it had, it wouldn’t be a home.

5 Most Common Mistakes People Make When Starting Their Business

Starting your business can be fun and exciting. Imagine being able to make money doing what you love and feel passionate about! Yet, we all know that this experience is no picnic. But does it really have to be that hard? Not if you are prepared and have enough resources to support you. And believe me, you will need lots of resources. Many entrepreneurs find themselves lacking these vital resources because they most likely made one or more of the following mistakes.

1. Not branding themselves. I hear experts talking about marketing and sales as being two separate steps. That is true, however they forget to mention the branding step which comes before marketing. Branding is what you do before you go out there networking, speaking or advertising your services online. If you go out there not knowing how to present yourself clearly enough, most likely you will not attract any customers.

2. Quitting cold turkey. Although this may be an excellent method when you want to quit smoking, it is not the best solution to quit your paying job as soon as you decide you want to start your own business. You will need resources and lots of money to fund your new business. It may take you a while before you get your first client and you don’t want to run out of money just when you realize you may need to invest into a web site or a personal coach. Nothing is more frustrating than feeling stuck and not being able to get someone to help you because you don’t think you can afford help.
