I’m often asked, “How much should we be spending on marketing?” I always reply with a three-word joke, “More. Much more!” The best answer to that question is not so much HOW MUCH you spend, but WHAT you are spending it on.We’re in prime budgeting season. Every credit union or bank marketer is sharpening their pencils and crunching their numbers. We budget for business development, give-a-ways, annual meetings, promotions, websites and more. There are GLs for every possible line item.But are they the right items? As you prepare your 2016 marketing budget, consider the following five areas that need concentration. Each item will generate the greatest return on those precious marketing resources.Here are the five must haves for your 2016 marketing budget:A Micro-Local Emphasis—You probably already know the importance of investing your dollars in local events and marketing. Doing business locally is certainly a trend. However, as you examine your 2016 budget make sure every single expense ties back to the micro-level. In other words, if something (billboard, event, etc.) does not take place within three miles of one your branches don’t do it. This ties back to a strategy I wrote in a post called “Own The Circle.” continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

Essential Reading! Get my 2nd book: The Lost Art of Closing “In The Lost Art of Closing, Anthony proves that the final commitment can actually be one of the easiest parts of the sales process—if you’ve set it up properly with other commitments that have to happen long before the close. The key is to lead customers through a series of necessary steps designed to prevent a purchase stall.” Buy Now Web-based advertising platforms provide you applicants by allowing them to find jobs they’d be interested in, and they make it easy for a candidate to send you their resume by simply clicking a link. This tends to increase the number of candidates that reply to your posted position while simultaneously reducing the overall quality; many people without the right skills will apply based only on the advertised compensation.I start with three segments of candidates.A-List CandidatesIf a candidate has industry-related experience and a strong sales history, they make the A-List. Understanding the industry is an indication that they know how things work, that they have experience in having business discussions around the industry, and that they have contacts that may allow speed to results (even though this isn’t always true).B-List CandidatesIf a candidate doesn’t have the requisite industry experience, but has the sales history, they make it into the second stack. Sales skills are transferable, especially if the sales person has been trained, coached, and developed by their prior organizations.If you have the ability to teach and train a salesperson in your industry, there are excellent candidates that possess the mindset and the skill set necessary to succeed. It is a mistake not to consider candidates from this group. It’s a bigger mistake to trade industry experience for the attributes that allow someone to succeed, but that is the most common mistake people make when hiring. What feels like a shortcut is often a dead end.C- List CandidatesThis is the stack of resumes from people who lack industry experience and also have no experience in sales.Unless you are prepared to train salespeople from scratch, and unless you have the training and development resources to train people with absolutely no experience, this list isn’t the right place to hire from. It is a mistake, and it is wrong to hire salespeople with no experience if you cannot train, coach, and develop them. It is unfair to them, and it is why so many young people sour on sales.The 20-Minute Meet and GreetI never interview a candidate from any list without first doing a 20-minute phone interview. There is no reason to commit to spending an hour with someone who is clearly wrong for you and your company. Your time is best reserved for people who appear to be a good fit.It helps to consider the best candidates from your A-List and your B-List for these 20-minute interviews. You don’t want to overlook a potential future star because they don’t have industry experience. You also don’t want to hire someone who is a project if you have an A-List candidate available.Hiring isn’t easy, and it is better to see more people than fewer. This strategy allows you to look at more candidates, and build a pool of those who are likely the best fit.
| Photo Credit: Sushil Kumar Verma Most households in Madhi village in Nuh’s Nagina tehsil have underground reservoirs, locally known as kundas, to meet their daily need of water for drinking, washing and cooking as well as for their cattle.Having a population of around 3,000, the village is at a distance of around 100 km from the national Capital.“Till a decade ago, the women and men of the village used to fetch drinking water on foot or on bicycles from a well in the neighbouring village. But it gradually dried up. These kundas have come up across the village over the past few years. They are replenished with water procured through private tankers, costing ₹800-₹1,000 per tanker. The water usually lasts for 10-15 days,” said Mohammad Majlis, a villager.Majlis, an operation theatre technician at Gurugram’s Medanta Hospital, said a monthly expenditure of around ₹2,000 on drinking water was “too much” for the locals since most of them were poor farmers or those engaged in jobs with monthly incomes of ₹10,000-₹12,000.Saline groundwaterThe groundwater in this part of the district is saline, making it unfit for drinking and its level too has gone down. The lone pond in the village also dries up every summer, adding to the woes of the villagers.Irshad, another villager, said the natural course of rainwater to the pond was hindered by the construction of a school, reducing the amount of water reaching the pond and causing it to dry up every six months.“The cattle suffer the most when the pond dries up. Since we cannot afford water to drink and cook, bathing the cattle becomes almost impossible,” he added.Erratic water supplyThough the authorities laid water pipelines to the village several years ago, the villagers complained that the supply was “erratic”. “We do not get water for weeks together. Sometimes there is no water for months. The situation is more or less the same all through the year. But there is slight relief when the pond is replenished during monsoon,” said Shamim Ahmed, a local.A similar situation prevails in more than two dozen villages in Nagina tehsil. The ponds dry up every summer and the locals, heavily dependent on private tankers for their everyday water needs, are forced to dig up kundas to store water.But there are people like Jamil, running a cigarette kiosk on the Nuh-Alwar highway in Madhi, who cannot even afford a “kunda” whose construction costs around ₹ 30,000-40,000. Parched land: (Left) A dried pond at Madhi village; residents collect drinking water from a cemented water tank in Nuh, Haryana. He is at the mercy of his fellow villagers to meet his family’s daily need for water and usually “begs” for it. “Sometimes I contribute to the payment made to the water tanker by those who have a kunda,” said Jamil.Ganduri resident Mohhamad Akil complained that water stored for too long in kundas sometimes caused skin ailments and other illnesses, but the villagers have little choice.“More than half of Nuh district faces water crisis with Nagina tehsil being the worst affected. The water supply to Nagina is erratic and the groundwater level has gone down. Almost all ponds across the district dry up during the summer. Plans for their revival remain mostly on paper,” said social activist Saleem Khan.Brisk tanker businessWith the authorities failing to meet the drinking water needs of the people of the district, private water tanker owners do brisk business all through the year, especially in the summer.Owners of agricultural land at the foothills of the Aravalis have drilled borewells and sell groundwater to private tanker owners, who in turn supply it to the villages across the district.Amjad, one such landowner, told The Hindu that he replenished 18-20 tankers every day during the summer, but the number decreased to almost half during the winter.“We have laid a pipeline from our land in Khoiri village to Rajaka Pul and supply water to private tankers. There are around a dozen such points across the district,” claimed Amjad.Private tanker owner Saad, who takes water from Amjad at Rajaka Pul point, claimed that he made around ₹20,000 per month by supplying water to villages like Badkali, Kreda, Kithurpuri, Mandi, Notki and Khwajlika.The estimated demand for private tankers in the district is around 100-125 per day, mostly in the Nagina tehsil. The tankers also supply water to Ferozepur Jhirka, Punhana, Tauru and Nuh tehsils but the demand there is lesser.Government measuresExecutive engineer, Public Health and Engineering Department (Punhana division), Vinod Siroha conceded that there was a shortage of water in a few villages in Nagina tehsil as they were at the tail end of the 73-km-long pipeline carrying water from rainy wells. “Being at the tail end, these villages in Nagina tehsil don’t get adequate water during the summer due to increased demand. Frequent and long power cuts also hamper water supply to these villages. We plan to set up another integrated boosting system to augment water supply in this area soon,” said Mr. Siroha.He said water was supplied to around 160 villages under his jurisdiction through more than 5,000 tankers over the past two months to make up for the erratic supply through pipelines.His claim was strongly contested by the villagers. Jalapur village sarpanch Sakunat’s husband Jaan Mohammad said not a single government tanker ever came to his village. Lukman, another villager, said that he had never seen a government water tanker in the village all these years.
“I’m sticking to the brand that we are still the underdogs since we won just one game,” said San Beda coach Boyet Fernandez, who is looking for his third NCAA crown.Behind the heroics of Robert Bolick, who had nine of the last 11 points of his team, the Lions grabbed Game 1, 94-87, before a huge crowd last Friday.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutDonald Tankoua and Davon Potts also made an impact for the Lions, combining for 42 points as they spoiled the Pirates’ perfect record.San Beda skipper Javee Mocon said their team’s experience in pressure situations remains their only edge against a Lyceum team which has depth and firepower.

Real Madrid and Spanish National Team star football player, Sergio Ramos, was appointed this week as UNICEF Spain’s newest ambassador during an event with youth in the Brazilian city of Curitiba where he is participating in a UNICEF program for the promotion of fair play and the right to sport.Sergio Ramos has been a longtime supporter of UNICEF’s work on behalf of the most vulnerable children, visiting child survival programs in Senegal, leading and participating in solidarity matches such as Champions for Africa and Champions for Life, recording messages of support, donating personal objects and memorabilia to raise funds for UNICEF programs, and participating in television specials for the most vulnerable children.His appointment comes at an exciting time – the start of World Cup in Brazil and the kickoff of the ‘Team UNICEF’ initiative, which aims to use sport to promote tolerance, peace, respect, and also encourage cooperation and leadership among young people. It further aims to focus on the need for children to be protected from violence.During this week’s ceremony in Curitiba, Ramos stated, “As an ambassador for UNICEF Spain, it is an honor for me to help the initiatives of the organization on a larger scale to ensure that we strengthen the rights of children. I am thrilled to join ‘Team UNICEF’ during the World Cup and to support UNICEF’s work for the promotion of sport and for the protection of children. I just had a son and I cannot imagine the pain of not being able to protect him from any circumstances that would prevent him from fully enjoying his rights.”The Executive Director of UNICEF Spain, Javier Martos, conveyed his appreciation to Sergio Ramos on behalf of the organization for his continued collaboration throughout the years: “This recognition comes after many years of selfless efforts on behalf of children, both through public events and private meetings, in which Sergio has demonstrated sensitivity and full commitment to the most vulnerable children through his willingness to support UNICEF’s work worldwide.”“We all have to find a way to support the most vulnerable children,” said Ramos, who has been with the Spanish Selection since 2005. “All children have the right to survive, to develop their potential, to play and have a future full of opportunities. UNICEF’s work is fundamental to achieving this.“I am proud to collaborate with UNICEF because I trust their work and I’ve seen firsthand their achievements during a trip to Senegal. I will help share UNICEF’s message and campaigns with many other people who also want to help.”“Sport is more than just physical exercise or competition for a trophy. When a child plays, he is exercising his right to be a child. But sport also helps children grow into healthy adults, to exercise more solidarity amongst their friends, to follow rules and learn to play as part of a team,” added Ramos after chatting with a network of youth and adolescents supported by UNICEF which promotes safe and inclusive sport in several communities with limited resources Curitiba.After talking with the youth, the new Spanish Ambassador played a brief and impromptu football game.
