Previously Published to News Break If you’re a small business owner or contractor, get ready! According to Clutch, a leading source for B2B research, ratings, and reviews, “80% of businesses plan to outsource in 2021, citing the ability to save time, grow their business, and work with other experts across industry.” In fact, taking a number of losses in 2020, many businesses have been forced to rethink operational efficiencies and have been looking for new ways to optimize existing business structures. As entrepreneurs, we see things differently than our colleagues or peers in the workforce. We often make excuses when things don’t go our way, and very often we feel a sense of loyalty to our weakest links. Sometimes, we do this to the detriment of our own wallets, rewarding those that were there with us from the beginning — whether they actually do anything meaningful, or not. In some cases, we feel the need to pay them a salary before we even pay ourselves — even if we wear damn near every hat under the sun and they sit around waiting for our business.

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED ON RESUME.ACADEMY’S OFFICIAL BLOG In a recent press release by the world’s favorite remote jobsearch site, FlexJobs identified “14 of the Most Common Remote Jobs” and the average annual pay per position. This list was based on data gathered from within an ever-growing database of work-at-home positions and key factors were highlighted for each of those positions. Additional data was gathered at PayScale.com, and annual salary data was determined in relation to those factors. The bottom line is this. As millennials continue to take the workforce by storm, a preference for out-of-office experiences has become the norm. As opposed to sitting behind a wooden desk in a stuffy office environment, many companies are finding value in providing the younger, more vibrant demographic with a more satisfying work-life balance. Contrary to reports that these professionals are being underpaid, as in contrast to previous generation s , these numbers show that some companies still value their workforce and aren’t against compensating them accordingly. According to the FlexJobs’ 7th annual survey on remote candidacy, 97% of all applicants said that “a job with flexibility would have either a huge improvement or a more positive impact on their overall quality of life.” […]

READ THE FULL ARTICLE AT DISCINSIGHTS BY PEOPLEKEYS A new year means new opportunities, a fresh start, and new beginnings. For many organizations, this also means new relationships, as companies seek to partner with like-minded associates in the expansion of ongoing business initiatives. Finding the support of new products, services, and community-based programming can often be a daunting task. So, forging strategic partnerships can be a godsend, when teaming up with just the right brand. Partnerships will allow businesses to function separately, while also allowing them to aim toward a mutual business goal. Teaming up in the development of campaigns, companies often cut costs within budgets and share resources in order to maximize ROIs for each function that they serve. They will tap into existing markets and expand into new territories, while vouched for by those, who have already earned the trust of audiences in which we have something new to offer. Audiences will often receive a double incentive for following through to the call-of-action of said campaigns, as partnerships blossom with new opportunities on the rise and profits increasing over time. When merging with future prospects, understand that every partnership will not breed results. In fact, not every brand […]

PREVIOUSLY PUBLISHED ON EXAMINER Does your brand appeal to an International consumer base? Does your brand entail Online distribution? How well do you know your European audiences? The time for Brand Expansion could be just around the corner. In recent reports by InternetRetailer.com, 2012 and 2013 has been showing incredible leaps in the funneling process to convert consumers into actual customers by Europeans, as compared to those of us in the “Western World.” Apparently, while a “fragmented” demographic exists, the ready consumer base in Europe is much larger than in America. Yet, it is growing at a rate equivalent to our own, which means an even larger mass of consumers, to whom Marketers should focus more attention upon. This is a demographic often forgotten by businesses, here in the United States, in which are able to be served through automated means!

Many of those projects will be more lucrative than others. But, what will you do with those offers? Do you accept them or not? As a Marketing Expert, it is your responsibility to act responsibly for your brand. As you recall from previous articles, your company and clients aren’t the only brands you should be worried about. YOU are a brand. As a matter of fact, YOU ARE what they call BrandYOU. In accepting gigs, please pay attention to the “Law of Quality.” This doesn’t mean that the product has to be quality. But, the morale behind it should also be quality. Who and what is this product benefiting and why? Does it relate to your branding structure?
