How to Nail Every Type of Outreach

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Outreach is a huge aspect of business. All editors or owners of a company have gotten some form of outreach email. Even though several areas of outreach have been automated, there is still a need for manual outreach.

Here’s how you can improve each area of outreach.


Reaching out to the person who makes the decisions is important. An insane amount of time can be wasted pitching a person without decision-making power. There are so many partnerships where a person might want final approval on the large decisions that are made.

Identifying the pain points of a potential customer can be done by email. Closing a sale is far easier when pitching only what a client or customer needs rather than pitching services or products that they do not. Upselling is one thing, but pushing additional spending can backfire.

FIIs pumped out $13.5 bn from Indian equity market since Oct 2021

Higher bond yields as well as a potential US Fed rate hike sparked a global risk-off sentiment, leading to elevated FII outflows in India, said Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

According to the brokerage house, $13.5 billion in FIIs’ outflows have taken place in the secondary markets since October 2021.

“Domestic equities have also borne the brunt of rich valuations after a relentless rally post the bottom in March 2020,” the brokerage house said.

“While the Nifty-50 has corrected just 8 per cent from its October 2021 peak thus far, it is hiding the stress in the broader markets.”

Besides, it cited concerns around the cost of “equities going up” has taken a brutal toll on high growth stocks belonging to the Tech domain, with recently listed digital IPOs coming off 25-50 per cent off

Human Design Is Your Key To Better Marketing

Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Have you ever felt frustrated or bitter marketing your expertise? Felt like no one is listening? Learned strategies, followed them to a T, yet generated scattered results?

Those of us running smaller businesses, especially coaches and experts, have all been there. The sad reality is that most people get stuck in this survival mode for way too long. I admit that I have been there myself, and at times it felt like I had nothing to give. Despite all the facts supporting my successes working with clients in my own business, I struggled to get the feeling that I finally found my way, the way that feels good and attracts clients into my world with ease. 

All that started changing after I discovered the Human Design System, a roadmap to self-empowerment innovated decades ago by author and thinker Ra Uru Hu. At

International Monetary Fund urges El Salvador to scale back Bitcoin push

The International Monetary Fund said Friday that El Salvador should dissolve the USD 150 million trust fund it created when it made the cryptocurrency Bitcoin legal tender and return any of those unused funds to its treasury.

The recommendation was part of the international lender’s report on El Salvador’s economy and went beyond its statement earlier this week urging El Salvador to drop Bitcoin as legal tender.

The trust fund was intended to allow the automatic conversion of Bitcoin to US dollars El Salvador’s other currency to encourage people wary of adopting the highly-volatile digital currency.

The IMF also recommended eliminating the offer of USD 30 as an incentive for people to start using the digital wallet Chivo and increasing regulation of the digital wallet to protect consumers. It suggested there could be benefits to the

Essential Project Management

“The nice thing about not planning is that failure comes as a complete surprise rather than being preceded by a period of worry and depression.” — author unknown

If you get in a car in Chicago with the intent of driving to Los Angeles, the GPS rarely plots the California portion of the map while you are in your driveway. Rather, the GPS methodically and sequentially plots each road to take in order to reach the desired location. Project Management follows the same logic of a series of key tasks or steps that have to be completed in a systematic process in order to meet the desired outcome. Traveling to Los Angeles from Chicago can only happen if the tasks of traveling through the Midwest and the Rockies are met first.

This type of thinking seems elusive when it comes to business project management. Ask someone to “map” out the

Choosing a Plastic Post Card

In marketing, it is important to have an effective communication tool. One of these tools is plastic postcards. These are cards that you create and distribute to customers with a message or advertisement about your business so they can learn more about it. You should consider several things when venturing into this type of communication. Here are some tips on choosing a plastic postcard.

Keep it Simple

The most popular plastic postcards are the standard size, five by seven inches. However, if you need a larger card or smaller postcard, you can get them adjusted to your specific needs at the printers. If the design is too large or small for a plastic postcard, it will diminish its impact and make people less likely to read it.

Use Quality Paper Stock

Like greeting cards, plastic postcards can be made with a range of paper stocks. The more …
