Display of Products the Secret to Increased Sales, Says Marketing Expert Kenneth Goodgame

Kenneth Goodgame is a renowned operations management leader who specializes in creative marketing and retailing. Over the years he has developed the reputation of producing results regardless of the prevailing market conditions. A highly skilled business strategist, Goodgame has managed several billion dollar enterprises over the years.

His ability to read and predict market trends and make smart decisions has helped companies navigate market shifts and stay consistently profitable even during tough economic periods. He focuses on the development of strong leadership, intelligent negotiation processes and delivery of quality products to guide businesses to profitability.

Goodgame’s marketing approach is centered on attracting and maintaining the client’s attention through creative display of products. He calls for the deliberate organization of the products in a store so as to make it easy for clients to easily find the items they are looking for in the shop. One of the most efficient ways to promote products and boost sales in a store is by using end caps.

The end caps direct customers to where the product are in the store. According to Goodgame, end caps that are clearly displayed at the end of aisles are a sure way of increasing sales in the business, especially when an effort is made to display attractive and relevant information. The best place to place the caps is at the end of the aisles so that they are the first things that the customer sees when they enter the store.

As the preferences of customers shift from season to season, Kenneth Goodgame advises that sellers identify which goods are likely to sell most during a particular season and capitalize on them. For instance, warm clothing is usually in high demand during the winter. Therefore, retailers that stock these products and promote them well are likely to make more sales during the cold season. Other products that are likely to sell during this season are heaters.

Goodgame is a graduate of the University of Tennessee where he earned a Bachelor of Science in Marketing. He has vast experience in the retail industry, having held leadership positions in several top companies.

The Funtionality of LED Lighting is Incomparable

It is evident that LED lighting is by far more cost and energy efficient in the long run than incandescent lighting. This isn’t where the benefits end for LED lights, especially for commercial property owners. LED lights are able to withstand harsh conditions and they are highly durable. Their resistance to shock and vibrations and ability to keep working despite exposure to extreme cold or heat and wind and rain, is incomparable. This makes LED lighting fixtures a wonderful option for construction and manufacturing businesses. LED lighting can also be designed to improve the mood of the people working in a space. This is something that those who work long hours can appreciate, as it not only helps to lift the mood but it also has shown effectiveness in making the mind sharper. LED mood illumination is already being prominently used in classrooms for those exact reasons. This is a different type of energy efficiency that can’t be found in any other lighting fixture. LED lighting can improve the overall energy efficiency of businesses in the following industries: hospitality, retail, logistics, and office spaces. Using applications from enterprise lighting IoT solutions provider, Gooee, can tremendously improve the LED lighting functionality in your business. By integrating the sensing and WIM hardware from Gooee into your business you can have predictive lighting analytics. Using this feature allows you, as a commercial property owner, to know when lights may fail with a predictive end of life analysis. You will also be able to clearly see LED performance metrics, and information regarding real-time energy consumption.

Securus Receives High Rating from BBB

One of the greatest professional accolades that a business can receive is getting a high rating from the Better Business Bureau. The Better Business Bureau is an international agency that provides business ethics ratings on hundreds of thousands of businesses located across the globe. The company provides ratings on an A to F scale, giving the highest A+ rating to only the most ethical and customer-focused companies.

Earlier this year, Securus Technologies received notification that they had received the prestigious A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau. The company was only able to receive the high rating after it went through a very rigorous and time-consuming interview and review process. The Better Business Bureau focused on several aspects of the company’s operations, including its ability to handle customer complaints, its ability to deliver what was promised, and its ability to embody overall integrity. One of the largest drivers of the company’s high rating was its customer service dedication, which included the opening of a 200+ seat customer service station that is dedicated to meeting client needs.

 

The recent accolade is only the most recent success for Securus Technologies. The Dallas, Texas based company has quickly become a leader in providing security and communication services to correctional facilities across the country. The company employs over 1,200 people across the United States and sells and provides services and products to thousands of different facilities. Their most popular product is currently their video visitation service, which has helped to make a correctional facility a safer and more efficient place to visit and work at.

Beauty Blogger Wengie’s Halloween Fairy Makeup Tutorial

Popular YouTube star Wengie has an easy fairy makeup tutorial for Halloween. She emphasizes that the way to achieve the perfect fairy look is to have wavy hair, colorful eye shadow and a pretty flower crown. She also gives a brief description of fairies as she frolics a bit in a garden, dressed in her fairy costume. She says there is more to a fairy than meets the eye; dark fairies can be quite dangerous. Luckily, all of the beauty products Wengie recommends in her video are cruelty-free.

 

The first step in her fairy makeup routine is applying primer. She recommends Napoleon Perdis to prepare the skin and make it absolutely smooth for foundation application. This is followed by Etude House BB cream, which helps brighten the face. Wengie suggests a Napoleon application brush to smooth out the BB cream, as it blends the foundation evenly. Etude House Powder helps set the foundation and reduces any shine.

 

The next part of the process is where the fun color comes in. Wengie uses a flamingo pink eye shadow and starts dabbing it under her eye sockets. In her own words, “This is not exactly a subtle makeup look.” She uses a MAC blending brush to bring the pink shadow down a bit more in a circle around her eyes. She then applies it above her eyes, as well. A shimmering white shadow is then blended onto her brow bones, in addition to the inner corners of her eyes. Next, she adds a matte orange color under her lower pink shadow and blends it out to the edges of her face, almost like a mask.

 

After her colorful eye shadows are blended, Wengie draws on black, winged eyeliner on her top lids. She lines her bottom lids with colorful, jeweled eyeliner to add even more color to her face. The face is then completed with a brow filler from The Face Shop and baby pink lipstick from SPORTSGIRL. After her makeup is finished, Wengie crimps her hair with a Vidal Sasson 3 Roller Curler and tops her hair with a flower crown.

Securus Offers Better Calling And Investigation

Securus has been the best calling company in prisons today, and it is a place where they are developing the technology that will help people make sure that they can talk to friends in prison. Friends and family who are in prison need to be able to get these calls, and that is why the people at Securus have created this platform. I also know that I have to do something that will help me with the investigative work I do. I am not with the police, but I know that they are using Securus Technology called the Investigator Pro.

The Investigator Pro is a very good piece of technology that can detect voices, and it is something that can be used in the work that I do. I know that it can help some of my clients who cannot get the information any other way, and that is why they need to be sure that they are deploying the technology to help as many people as possible. I believe in finding the people who are really behind the crime, and that is why I know that it is important that they have used their new technology to partner with the police.

I have also met clients who are talking to family in jail through Securus, and I use the account myself because it is the best way to chat with people who are in jail. It is a much faster way for me to be sure that they have information, and it is also very secure. The security that they have makes all our calls confidential, and I think that they will make it much easier for me to have the information I need. Securus is helping everyone from the police to families by offering the best kinds of service.
