The Way I See It
 

Have you ever thought that something as simple as a password could change your life? Surely you’ve experienced that cringe-worthy moment when you receive the dreaded “your password has expired” message. Chances are, creating a new password has never really been a big deal, until recently. Now, you’re required to use one uppercase character, one lowercase character, one symbol, one number, no less than eight characters, and you can’t use the same password you’ve used before!

My password expired the other day, and just as I started ranting about how I dislike creating new passwords, my coworker said, “try using a password that will change your life.” After thinking about it, I typed a password: gratitude#1. My password reminded me to be thankful several times a day when logging into my computer for the next 30 days.

Here’s the way I see it: Positive thinking can turn any moment of despair into an opportunity for inspiration.

 

PS: If you've ever been curious what the inside of Stannard Rock Light, Gull Rock Light or Manitou Light looks like, check out sandpointcharters.com. I had a rare opportunity to take an inspection crew through all three of them this summer. Previous lighthouse keepers must have had to look for some inspiration in moments of despair.

It’s Time to Get Social
A CREATIVE WAY TO INCREASE SOCIAL INTERACTIONS

Is your business looking for a creative way to increase customer social interactions? Consider sending a direct mail piece with an oversized logo sticker, die-cut card, or other type of promotional piece that your customers can take photos with and then post them online. For every tagged image with your hashtag, your customer/prospect will be automatically entered into a drawing to win a gift card or free product.

Since you are mailing your audience something to physically take photos with, be sure to include a brief info card or flyer in your mailing with simple directions that encourage a call to action.

If you’d like help creating a direct mail piece that will get your audience talking, give us a call today! Our creative team would love to help.

Create Groups In Snapchat
QUICKLY SHARE SNAPCHAT MESSAGES WITH A SPECIFIC GROUP OF PEOPLE

If you’re looking for an easy way to quickly share Snapchat messages with a specific group of people, rather than sending to individuals one-by-one or posting it to your story for everyone to see, you can create groups.

To create a group, open Snapchat, take a photo and click the send button at the bottom right. Look for the “Groups” section on the Send To page. Click the “Create Group” button and select up to 16 friends to include in the group. Once the group is created, you can name the group and easily share posts with them. Because the group has a limit of 16 people, if you’d like to add a seventeenth person to the group, you must remove someone from the group first.

Group messages will last 24 hours, the same as messages sent to individual viewers. You will know who has seen the story and who hasn’t, and the group of members will be easily accessible for future snaps. If you’d like creative ways to save time and keep in touch with your audience through print, give us a call today!
