first_imgLiverpool attacking midfielder Philippe Coutinho was not included in the 22-man travelling squad for the first leg of their Champions League play-off against Hoffenheim, the Premier League club said on Monday.According to reports in British media, Barcelona target Coutinho submitted a transfer request last week after Liverpool rejected a second bid worth 100 million euros ($117.96 million) from the La Liga club.Coutinho also missed Liverpool’s 3-3 draw at Watford on Saturday due to a back injury, with manager Juergen Klopp conceding he had no control over the 25-year-old’s future at the club.Reuters PhotoUnder current UEFA rules, Coutinho’s participation in the play-off round against Hoffenheim would not jeopardise a move in the current transfer window. The Brazil international will remain eligible to feature for another club in next month’s Champions League group-stage.The Merseyside club will also be without striker Daniel Sturridge, who has failed to recover from a thigh injury sustained during the pre-season.Hoffenheim host Liverpool at the Rhein-Neckar-Arena on Tuesday before the two sides meet again at Anfield next week.last_img read more

However, I think that generally the price will hover around the $100 mark no matter what, unless you want to buy fancy wine or something like that.Enjoy!Follow along!Check out all of the other ways to be healthy on a budget I’ve covered: 10 Tips for Eating Out on a Budget, 3 Easy Ways to Make Coffee Shop Drinks at Home, 5 Tips for Eating Well (and Cheap) While Traveling, A Health-Centric 7-Day Meal Plan that Won’t Break the Bank , and 10 Tips to Make (Healthy) Groceries Budget-Friendly.Head over to Brewing Happiness for more healthy recipe inspiration! Welcome to the final installment of a six-part collaboration between Mint and Brewing Happiness. I’m Haley, the girl behind Brewing Happiness – a blog about celebrating the small healthy choices we make in our lives, complete with recipes for everybody! I’m so excited to bring you this summer dinner party menu for under $100, so that you can celebrate the long, hot days with all of your friends.Recently, I wrote about my top 10 tips for eating out on a budget and one of those tips was to skip going out and have a dinner party instead. So I figured it would be helpful if I provided you with a cost-effective menu to help you execute that idea. I love throwing dinner parties, and I’ve perfected the skill of creating delicious, yet easy meals to impress my friends with. Don’t be intimidated by the idea, you can do totally do this. I mean, the menu even includes frozen pizza – does it get any easier than that?Since I’m all about healthy(ish) food, the menu is vegetarian but it includes both a cocktail and a dessert. I don’t think you will feel deprived from the lack of meat at your table. In fact, I think you’ll feel invigorated from this fresh and seasonal menu, which is perfect for those hot summer nights.I’ve broken the pricing down by menu item, and also included a per-person cost breakdown. This way you could ask your friends to pitch-in and everyone would be spending less way less than you would by going out to eat. If you decide you still want to cut down the cost even more, you can eliminate the cocktail or the dessert. Or if you decide you want to add a protein (perhaps try chicken on the salad), you can know exactly how much extra that will cost.A SUMMER DINNER PARTY MENU FOR UNDER $100Serves about 6 peopleGREEN GRAPE SANGRIA7 cups green grapes, about 1 bag \ $3.292 lemons \ $0.99 each, $1.98 total1 bottle chardonnay \ $9.99½ bottle cava \ $6.99¼ cup agave nectar (sub maple syrup) \ $6.09 per bottlecenter_img NON-ALCOHOLIC VERSION7 cups green grapes, about 1 bag \ $3.292 lemons \ $0.99 each, $1.98 total1-2 bottles sparkling water \ $2.09 each, $4.18 total¼ cup agave nectar (sub maple syrup) \ $6.09 per bottle TOTAL COST – $ 28.34 / NA version $15.54CRISPY AVOCADO SUMMER SALAD (double the recipe)2 bags mixed greens \ $3.09 each, $6.18 total2 large ripe avocados \ $1.59 each, $3.18 total2 cups breadcrumbs \ $1.092 cups non-dairy milk (sub any kind of milk) \ pantry staple 1 cup all purpose flour \ pantry staple 4 tablespoons nutritional yeast \ $6.693 peaches \ $0.07 each, $0.22 total1 cup cherry tomatoes \ $3.691 cup chickpeas, about 1 can \ $1.291 sweet onion \ $0.69honey mustard dressing \ $3.09salt & pepper \ pantry staplesTOTAL COST – $26.12STRAWBERRY BALSAMIC SUMMER FLATBREAD (double the recipe)2 frozen cheese pizzas \ $7.39 each, $14.78 total2 cups strawberries \ $4.891 tablespoon olive oil \ pantry staple½ cup feta cheese \ $3.094 tablespoons almonds \ $3.694 teaspoons high quality balsamic vinegar or balsamic reduction \ $7.39salt & pepper \ pantry staplesTOTAL COST – $ 33.84WATERMELON CUPCAKES WITH COCONUT CREAM ICING½ seedless watermelon \ $6.091 can coconut cream \ $4.69¼ teaspoon vanilla extract \ pantry staplesalt \ pantry staplepowdered sugar, to taste \ pantry stapleTOTAL COST – $10.78TOTAL MENU COST – $99.08NON-ALCOHOLIC MENU COST – $83.54Per person total – $16.51 / $13.92last_img read more

Negotiating a Job Offer? 15 Rules From a Harvard Business Professor

first_img Negotiation This post originally appeared on the Opinion section of Inbound Hub. To read more content like this, subscribe to Opinion.So you’ve been through a few job interviews and now you’re down to brass tacks — you’re negotiating the offer. This can be complex, tricky business — and costly, too, if you don’t do it well.But complexity also creates opportunities, at least for people who have done some homework. Deepak Malhotra is a professor at Harvard Business School who teaches negotiation skills. He’s put together a pretty thorough list of 15 rules to follow when you’re negotiating a job offer, which I highly recommend.”Every situation is unique, but some strategies, tactics, and principles can help you address many of the issues people face in negotiating with employers,” Malhotra writes in a must-read article in the Harvard Business Review.After reading the article you might also want to watch a one-hour video where Malhotra gives a presentation about how to negotiate a job offer.

The thing you don’t want to do is just bring up one thing, such as salary, then go back and forth on that one point, and then say, “Okay, now here’s the next thing on my list.” Do that, and the employer “is unlikely to remain in an understanding or generous mood,” Malhotra writes.Other rules include: Understand the person across the table. Understand that this person has constraints in terms of what she can offer, and know what those constraints are. Consider the whole deal, not just salary. And avoid ultimatums. And another favorite: “Don’t negotiate just to negotiate.” Apparently this is a big problem for freshly minted MBA students. They’ve just taken courses in negotiation, so “they go bargaining berserk the first chance they get, which is with a prospective employer,” Malhotra writes. If something is important, then sure, fight for it. But don’t haggle over every little thing, just to show that you can.”Fighting to get just a bit more can rub people the wrong way.”last_img read more

12 Pinnable Pinterest Pins That Teach You How to Use Pinterest

first_imgYou create marketing plans for your Facebook, Twitter, and other social media accounts, right? Well, Pinterest is no different.Figuring out where to start tends to be the hardest part. Not only do you need to know your goals for social media marketing, and who your target market is, there is a lengthy list of factors that play into creating a successful Pinterest strategy.Thankfully, Viraltag’s blog offers this step-by-step list to help you get started.3) Have a Way to Measure Your Pinterest PerformanceSaveMashableCopyright issueHow to track traffic from Pinterest in Google Analytics – genius – from Mashable1K+Linda {Craftaholics Anonymous®}Social Media + Blogging Once you’ve brainstormed some content ideas and shared them on Pinterest, you need a way to measure your posts’ success.As with all of your social media profiles, using analytics is invaluable. Tracking which pins do well and which don’t is vital information you can use to keep bettering your strategy and approach to Pinterest.Google Analytics is a commonly used tool used to measure website performance, but if you’re not sure how to use it to gauge your Pinterest success, don’t fret! This pin lists four ways you can measure Pinterest using Google Analytics.However, if you’d rather not use a third-party, Pinterest has designed Pinterest Analytics, and you can access it right from your Pinterest account. 4) Determine What Pins You Should be Pinning (to Get the Most Engagement)Savefrom whiteglovesocialmedia.comCopyright issuesocial media marketing209Webadocious Lexingtonsocial media marketing Once you know how to pin, you need to determine what to pin.No matter your audience, this cheat sheet contains 22 tips that can help you determine how to design your pins, or choose which images to repin or like – these numbers don’t lie.Nevertheless, it is still critical to know your target audience. You can’t just make an infographic on any topic or include 20 hashtags in your caption and see your pin go viral.Understanding your audience and tweaking your pins to reflect their wants and needs will be a helping hand in amplifying your pins’ success. If you’re looking to increase your engagement, create boards and find pins that are related to what your audience is pinning – and when they’re pinning it.(Attention: This is the most important takeaway from this post!)  Pin content that is related to your business or industry.That being said, don’t sell yourself on every pin – share helpful or relevant information on some of your pins and boards, as well. It’s okay to be a clothing company but have a board of recipes or your favorite restaurants – it lets your audience know you want to engage with them as people, not just market to them as customers.For example, at Mainstreethost we try to incorporate a variety of different boards on our Pinterest, but also keep our profile professional and industry-related.  It’s all about finding that happy medium between your business’ marketing goals and providing relevant and enjoyable content that relates to your audience outside of the realm of your products and services.5) Make Your Pins PrettySavePinterest and Instagram Marketing Tips and NewsCopyright issue5 Design Tools to Create Pinnable Images :: If there is one thing this writer enjoys more than researching blog articles and finding good Pinterest tips for all you loyal blog readers out there, it’s designing the accompanying images for our blog posts. Creating pinnable images to go with entries, regardless if it is for your blog or social media posts, is vital for optimizing your pinning opportunities.5K+Steve ZiembaCreative | Design As a designer (and a perfectionist), I probably take more care than is necessary on what my pins look like.But, even if you’re not a designer, you should care what your pins look like. From photos to vector imagery, your designs should be pleasing to the eye so they stand out in the sea of images on your audience’s page.Here’s an example of how to take your pin to the next level: If you don’t have a designer in-house or on hand, there are plenty of tools out there you can utilize. My co-worker’s favorite is Canva, which (unsurprisingly) is on this list pinned by Tailwind. 6) BUT, Don’t Just Pin Pretty Pictures SaveMashableCopyright issueHow to pin successfully: Upload at least some own images, make sure the file name of your image contains your targeted key phrase, pin from a variety of different sources, link your pictures, use the 500 characters description, pin according to your taste, don’t forget that pinterest is social, create a variety of different boards, add the follow and pin it button to your website, express yourself15K+1Mathias BürkSocial Media infographics In case you missed the importance of it in the preceding pins, pin content that is related to your audience and your industry.Yes, you can have a board full of delicious recipes, but be sure most of the content you pin or repin is related to your business. Take care when you are deciding what to pin or repin – don’t just pick a random stock photo and a one-sentence caption, or repin an image without changing the caption.This infographic features several ways to optimize your pins to increase likelihood of engagement. 7) Optimize Your Pinterest ProfileSaveSocial Media Marketing & Technology Solutions | HelloSocietyCopyright issueWant to get more followers on Pinterest, better engage your current followers, and increase your brand’s website traffic and sales? Treat the following list as a checklist to transform your Pinterest account from its current state. #PinterestForBusiness1K+Brian HayesPinterest Guidance Now that you know how to optimize your pins, you can focus on your profile.This detailed checklist shows you exactly what your boards, pins, and profile need to have to best optimize your Pinterest account.This list includes links to profiles that set an example of what top brands do to create a successful Pinterest presence – it wouldn’t be a bad idea to follow them, either.8) Use Pinterest to Connect With Your AudienceSavethepinjunkie.comCopyright issueHow to get invited to Pinterest group boards #skipthehouseworkparty1K+Reasons To Skip The Housework | DIY Projects, Crafts, & Stay at Home LifestyleCrAfTy 2 ThE CoRe~DIY GaLoRe One of the main purposes of a social media strategy is to connect and engage with your audience.Commenting on pins and repinning or liking what your audience pins will help you increase your engagement.However, there are also group boards that you can utilize on Pinterest. You can create and maintain a group board and/or join others that were created by your audience.Either way, group boards are a great opportunity to better understand what your audience wants to see on Pinterest, and maybe even an opportunity for you to get feedback and ideas straight from your customers. 9) You Can Now Promote PinsSaveovergovideo.comCopyright issue 664Jeff SiehPinterest Tips Many users are calling Pinterest a “sellout,” since they have opened up their platform to more advertisements.For businesses, however, this is certainly a positive addition. If you know what keywords your target audience is searching for, and you want to ensure you reach them with your pin, paying to promote your pin just might be worth it.Once a pin is published, you can promote it as soon as it hits your board; but be careful! There are rules to advertising on Pinterest that you’ll want to remember. 10) Avoid the Pinterest “Sins”SaveScalable Social MediaCopyright issueThe five deadly sins of Pinterest for Business by @mcngmarketing for @scalablesocial805Nichole Mishlermarketing This couldn’t be a successful post on pins that teach you how to use Pinterest without teaching you what not to do.There are actually a handful of posts on what mistakes to avoid on Pinterest and how to avoid them.Save yourself from Pinterest disaster with these quick tips:Be sure your pins link to somethingInvest quality time to Pinterest so you’re posting quality contentMaking the first boards on your profile irrelevant to your audience is just as bad as not having any boards at allIf you can avoid making these mistakes on your Pinterest, reaching your marketing goals shouldn’t be too big of a challenge. 11) Remember, You’re Not Limited to Just Pinning on PinterestSaveboribedi.comCopyright issuePinterest and Instagram.

Love batting in tough situations, when dressing room is nervous: Shreyas Iyer

first_imgIndian captain Virat Kohli praised him for coming good under pressure in the ODI series against the West Indies and Shreyas Iyer said he loved batting in tough situations when the dressing room is “nervous”.The 24-year-old Iyer played a big role in India’s 2-0 series win against the West Indies as he gave able support to captain Virat Kohli who excelled as usual with back back-to-centuries.Kohli and Iyer had partnerships of 125 and 120 in the second and third ODIs under tricky situations respectively.In the third ODI, Iyer came out when India were at a spot of bother at 91 for 3 in the 13th over while chasing a revised target of 255 from 35 overs. His counter-attacking 65 from 41 balls took the pressure off Kohli, who remained not out on 114, and changed the complexion of the game.”I am very happy. I want to come out to bat in this kind of tough situation when everybody in the dressing room is nervous. I love it because the (complexion of the) match can change and anything can happen in the team position,” Iyer told Chahal in an interview after the third ODI on Wednesday.At the post-match press-conference an impressed Kohli said Iyer could be a “regular feature in middle order” if he continues taking responsibility like he did during this three-match series which India won 2-0.”He (Iyer) was not intimidated at all, he was very confident, very sure of his game. At no stage he looked like getting out. He has suddenly presented a role for himself, playing according to the situation. Hopefully he keeps performing like this for the team … he can be a strong contender and a regular feature in the middle order,” Kohli said.advertisementIyer hit five sixes during his 41-ball knock, two each off the bowling of Roston Chase and Fabian Allen and one off Carlos Brathwaite, and he joked he was taking “revenge” of Chahal being hit for maximum runs by Nicholas Pooran during the West Indies innings.”I have to take revenge of our bowler being hit. He (Pooran) is a fine batsman but since Chahal has been hit I am angry and so will have to take the revenge,” Iyer joked.Asked by Chahal what he had during the breakfast before the match, Iyer said, “I did routine and had my breakfast. I ate three eggs.Also Read | Shreyas Iyer took pressure off me: Virat Kohli after India win 3rd ODI vs West IndiesAlso Read | Virat Kohli 1st batsman to score 20,000 international runs in a decadeAlso Read | Virat Kohli says blow on thumb not of serious concern, should be fine for 1st Testlast_img read more

Don’t say I am the new Bolt: Noah Lyles after 200m gold at World Championships

first_imgAmerican Noah Lyles shot to 200 metres world championships gold on Tuesday, providing a bright finish to a day darkened by yet another doping scandal.The showman Lyles, his hair dyed silver after a heroic anime character, kicked off what many predict will be a glittering career by winning his first world title by storming across the line unthreatened in a time of 19.83 seconds.Canada’s Andre De Grasse, the Rio Olympic silver medallist behind Usain Bolt, was second again in 19.95 while Ecuador’s Alex Quinonez took the bronze by clocking 19.98.It was a brilliant finish to a day of competition clouded by a drugs controversy that began with renowned American coach Alberto Salazar being banned for four years for doping violations.The news landed like a grenade right smack in the middle of the International Association of Athletics Federations’s (IAAF) showcase world championships, adding another headache to an event already dogged by criticism over sparse attendance and searing heat.Nothing, however, could distract Lyles from his goal.The 22-year-old was behind coming out of the blocks but powered into the lead through the corner and was in complete command to the finish.”So many times this year I have thought about being world champion, you wouldn’t believe it,” said Lyles.”I have it on my phone, I say it to myself in my car, I think it all the time and to have finally done it feels unbelievable.”I don’t know how many people come to their first world championships and get a gold medal but I have done it.advertisement”I just knew that no matter what position I found myself in, I would find a way to come through.I am me, it’s my time: Noah Lyles on Usain Bolt comparisonCharismatic, brash and very fast, Lyles’ dominating and entertaining performance in Doha will only increase talk that he is the man to take over from Usain Bolt as the new face of the sport.He is more than just a sprinting machine.Lyles, an aspiring rap artist who has strolled down the Paris catwalks and runs to his own beat, ticks many of the boxes that could one day make him athletics’ leading man.”Don’t say I’m the new Bolt,” pleaded Lyles. “I’m me.”If you like me I will happily entertain you.”It’s my time.”The 200m final offered a small glimpse of a much needed rivalry that the sport also needs.After spending two years battling injuries, De Grasse was back in fighting form in Doha as he picked up a pair of medals, the 200m silver and a bronze in the 100m.”He (Lyles) is young,” said the 24-year-old De Grasse.”I’m looking forward to battles with him in the future. He kind of reminded me of my younger self the way he runs.”Our starts are not that great but our acceleration when we come off the bend and the run home.Also Read | IAAF World Championships: Avinash Sable included in Steeplechase final after India’s successful appealAlso See:last_img read more

The Wall Street Journal‘s China Realtime Report explains the issue and why we are seeing increased activism surrounding family planning in China:A group of 15 prominent Chinese scholars issued a open letter [in Chinese] on Thursday calling for a rethink of country’s family-planning laws, arguing that the law in its present form is incompatible with China’s increasing respect for human rights and need for sustainable economic development.It was the second open call for reform of the one-child policy this week, and comes less than a month after the shocking story of a seven-months pregnant woman forced undergo an abortion ignited a firestorm of anger online.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

Building Community Capacity for Maternal Health Promotion: An Important Complement to Investments in Health Systems Strengthening

first_imgPosted on October 23, 2014November 2, 2016By: Ellen Brazier, Senior Technical Advisor for Community Engagement, EngenderHealth; Moustapha Diallo, Country Director, EngenderHealth GuineaClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)EngenderHealth’s Fistula Care Plus project recently published the results of two studies in Guinea, one examining factors associated with institutional delivery and another investigating the effect of an intervention to build the capacity of community-level volunteers to promote maternal health care-seeking.Community empowerment and participation has long been recognized as a fundamental component of good health programming and as a critical strategy for improving access to and use of health services. However, as Susan B. Rifkin notes in a 2014 review of the literature, evidence directly linking community participation to improved health outcomes remains weak.For maternal health, the evidence gap is particularly acute. A 2014 World Health Organization (WHO) report reviewed a community mobilization approach that involves training and supporting women’s groups to carry out an ongoing process of problem exploration, priority-setting and action planning. The report concluded that, while such participatory approaches appeared to have a strong effect on neonatal mortality, there was no evidence of effects on maternal mortality or on other critical maternal health indicators, such as institutional delivery, delivery with a skilled attendant, or receiving the recommended number of antenatal care visits.While important questions remain about what types of interventions are effective in improving maternal health, our recent research in Guinea found that women’s use of maternal health services was associated with the existence of strong support systems for maternal health within communities. Our study focused on villages where community volunteers had been trained to raise awareness about obstetric risks, including fistula, to monitor pregnancies, and to promote women’s routine use of maternal heath services. We assessed the extent to which community members were aware of and relied on community-level cadres as a main source of maternal health information and advice.We also found that women living in communities with a high score on our community capacity index were much more likely to use maternal health services than those living in communities with weak support systems. In fact, women living in villages with a high score on our community capacity index were more than twice as likely to attend at least four antenatal care visits during their pregnancies, to deliver in a health facility, and to seek care for perceived obstetric complications.Building the capacity of community cadres and volunteers to promote maternal heath and monitor maternal health care-seeking is challenging, and it does not occur overnight. However, our findings suggest that such capacity-building investments are worth it since community-level cadres can be important catalysts for changes in maternal health care-seeking when they have the training, support, and recongiztion they need to serve as a resource in their communities. Such investments are an important complement to ongoing efforts to improve the availability, accessibility, and quality of the continuum of maternal health services.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

How to Write Awesome Emails Your Donors Want to Read

first_imgWhen you want to contact your donors, chances are, you email them. And so does everybody else.Your donors, through no fault of their own, have inboxes that are constantly bogged down with messages from various organizations, businesses, stores, news outlets, and bloggers. And it’s a rare person who actually reads all of it.So, how do you “cut through the clutter?” Here are five tips to ensure your email reaches (and resonates) with your donors:Tip 1: Think Before You Write.Before you start typing, think about why you’re writing. What is the purpose of the email? Is it to get the word out about your nonprofit’s recent activities? Is it to invite donors to an event? Is it an appeal for donations? The most effective emails focus on one thing. In other words, don’t combine the invitation to join the peer-to-peer campaign with a program announcement and sign off with a donation request to fund a new roof.Sure, you have a lot of things to tell your donors, but unless this is your periodic newsletter (and formatted as such), keep each email to one topic. If the need is vital, it deserves its own email. Need help narrowing down your list? Write down what you want to say and prioritize the messages by need.Once you’ve finalized your email’s topic, it’s time to start an outline. “Outline?” you say. “It’s just an email. What do I need an outline for?” True – emails should be short – but again, we’re going for effectiveness here, and there’s nothing like an outline to keep your writing focused.Here’s what I’m suggesting: At the top of your outline, write the goal of this email (e.g. “get donations to the Spring campaign”). Then, jot down whatever supporting points or bits of information that you think will encourage your readers to take that action. Once you’ve got this bit figured out, you have my permission to start writing.Tip 2: Craft a Killer Subject Line.The hardest thing to write is always the first line. It’s no different when it comes to an email. And there’s a lot of pressure resting on this line, especially when 35% of people say that their decision to open an email comes from subject line alone. How do you write a subject line that convinces your donors to click?In the words of author Ann Handley, ask yourself: “WWYO – What Would You Open?”Many studies have investigated what makes a subject line effective, and they all seem to agree on a few key points:Keep it short, but on point. Too short and it’s not explicit enough, too long and you’ll lose your reader’s attention. Practically speaking, if the subject line is too long, it will probably get cut off in the recipient’s email reader. A good rule of thumb is to aim for 6-8 words.Personalization helps. People love reading their names. Use tokens to include your recipients’ name in the subject line, so it appears you’re addressing each person directly. And, in general, the subject line should relate to something that sets the sender apart or fits with a more narrow interest. For example, “How your dollars are making a difference?”Avoid sounding like spam. Certain words are spam triggers, and if you use them in a subject line, your donors’ email provider could move the message directly to the spam folder. Also, don’t use all caps in the subject line. Not only does it look like you’re shouting, but it also makes your message more likely to end up in the spam folder. Your subject line should relate to what it’s introducing.Tip 3: Make Your Copy Count.The writer’s classic, The Elements of Style, argues that every word of every sentence should serve a purpose, or be deleted. You don’t have to be quite so ruthless with your emails, but you should try to keep your messages short and succinct. Write no more (and no less!) than it takes to get your message across. Some studies show that the optimal email length is 50-100 words. Of course, some of your emails may need to be longer (like an appeal) but, the principle of brevity still applies.The email marketing platform in Network for Good’s donor management system has pre-built templates for appeals, acknowledgements, and more. Curious to see it up close? Click here to request a demo.And while we’re on the subject of your email copy, remember that you’re writing to humans. Humans have a sense of humor. You don’t have to be all business, all the time. If people find your emails warm, friendly, and even a little entertaining, they’re more likely to keep reading time after time.What else can you do to make sure your email is effective? Stay away from large “spray and pray” blasts to your entire list. Breaking your list into smaller segments allows you to write more effective messages. For example, the thank you message you send to recurring donors should probably be different than the one you send send to first-time donors.Tip 4: Have a Clear Call to Action.The body of your email serves one purpose, to draw your recipients to your Call To Action (CTA).Your CTA is what you want your recipient to do after reading the email. For example, if the goal is asking for donations, the CTA would be “Donate now.”Your email should always have one goal and one CTA. Let me repeat: it is always a bad idea to have more than one CTA. Why? Distraction. If you put multiple CTAs in an email, your audience is going to get confused and distracted. Worst of all, they’re not going take the action you want.Tip 5: Track and Tweak.How do you know if your emails are working? Your email marketing platform should show you two basic statistics: open rates and click rates. The open rate (what percentage of recipients opened your email) will tell you how successful your subject line was. The click rate will show you what percentage of recipients clicked a link in your email. To judge the effectiveness of your email copy, look at the click-to-open rate, which is the percentage of clicks from the people who opened the email.As a rule, always be testing. If that last subject line got a 20% open rate, see what you can do to bump it to 23%. If you had a high open rate and a really low click rate, review the copy and find ways to make it more compelling.There are a lot of options for email marketing systems, but only Network for Good donor management combines built-in email marketing with a personal fundraising coach to help you craft the perfect appeal. Develop targeted lists of donors from standard and custom filters. Then, draft your email from scratch or use one of our pre-built templates. All of the data from your email (opens, clicks, etc.) lives in your donor management, and your donor profiles are updated to show who got the email and how they responded. And acknowledgement tracking? That’s automatic. Click here to see it up close in a personal demo.last_img read more

‘Man Utd could use a young Ole!’ – Solskjaer

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that his Manchester United forward line is missing a predatory finisher following the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez to Inter.Sanchez agreed a season-long loan deal with the San Siro outfit on Thursday after failing to settle in his 19 months at Old Trafford since being signed from Arsenal.And his exit means United will have to cope with Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and 17-year-old Mason Greenwood as their only senior centre-forward options for at least the first half of the Premier League season.

Ox-rated! Dream night in Genk for Liverpool ace after injury nightmare Messi a man for all Champions League seasons – but will this really be Barcelona’s? The United manager said on Friday that he would ideally have been able to bring in a new striking option during the summer transfer window, but the club were unable to get the target they had identified.“At the moment we’re creating chances, but of course we’re always looking for someone to improve us, and we did and we were looking,” Solskjaer told a pre-match press conference.“As I said on the way back from tour, we were still looking for a replacement for Romelu if he went. We’re one down, to be fair, but we didn’t find the right one and we didn’t get the answer we wanted.”Martial’s current thigh injury sees him miss Saturday’s trip to Southampton, opening the door for Greenwood to potential make only his second senior start.Anthony Martial Marcus Rashford Manchester United vs Chelsea 2019-20But Solskjaer added that while he has faith in the youngster’s quality, the Reds could do with another striker with qualities similar to those which made the manager himself famous.“Mason’s a natural footballer, he’s enjoying his time on the pitch. He comes alive when he gets closer to the goal, which is great to see, and the finishing sessions he’s always the one who ends up in the last two, he always scores the most,” said Solskjaer.“He’s not scoring scrappy goals, I’ve got to say, he’s got proper goalscorer goals. And he also has to learn that scrappy in the six-yard box, and stick your head in where it hurts. But he’s got the whole range of finishes.“I do like the one who scores scrappy goals, in and around the box, a young Ole or something! It doesn’t have to be a 1.95m centre forward, no. But sometimes you think if we want to play with two up, maybe a different type to what we have.”Mason Greenwood Manchester UnitedThe Norwegian says the decision to allow Sanchez to leave for the season came after an honest conversation between the pair, but he expects the 30-year-old to still have a part to play for United despite having netted only five times in 45 games for the club.“I had a chat with him, and for me if I can’t guarantee regular football for Alexis Sanchez it’s better for the two of us that he goes and plays in Italy and shows what we know he’s capable of. But I wasn’t prepared to guarantee that.“I’m sure we’ll see Alexis back, we just hope he plays regular football for a year now and he can find his form. This is a loan for a year, Chris Smalling’s Roma deal is a loan for a year.

Solskjaer: I have loads of confidence

first_imgOle Gunnar Solskjaer said he has a lot of reasons to be confident, despite Manchester United’s worst start to a Premier League season.United’s 1-1 draw at home to rivals Arsenal on Monday left the Red Devils with just two wins and nine points from seven matches in 2019-20.Scott McTominay’s stunning long-range effort in the first half was cancelled out by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang approaching the hour mark as United slipped 12 points off the pace.

Giroud’s Chelsea spell set to end like his Arsenal career United have only won one of their past six Premier League fixtures since routing Chelsea on the opening weekend but manager Solskjaer told reporters: “There are many things that give me loads of confidence.”We can talk about performance but it’s results that matter. You can talk about results, I can talk about six out of seven good performances.”West Ham, we know, was below par [losing 2-0] but it wasn’t as bad as you lot made it out to be.” Solskjaer, who was without Anthony Martial and Aaron Wan-Bissaka for the Old Trafford showdown, added: “We didn’t get out of the blocks quickly enough at the start of the second half.”It felt like Arsenal were the more proactive until they scored their goal. I felt we could get a goal at the end and we sent men forward.”I’ve been in that situation as a player when you come off and think you could have got more out of a game but we’ll learn from this.”United conceded to Arsenal in controversial circumstances after VAR intervened to award Aubameyang the 58th-minute equaliser.Aubameyang was flagged offside by the assistant but stayed cool to run on to Bukayo Saka’s pass to beat United goalkeeper David de Gea.But the Gabon international had to wait for VAR to overrule the linesman’s decision, with replays clearly indicating Harry Maguire was playing Aubameyang onside after Axel Tuanzebe gave the ball away.”Ashley [Young] certainly holds his hand up,” Solskjaer said. “He looks straight at the linesman and maybe hesitates when he could have got a block in. That probably would have helped David [de Gea] but it is no consolation. It’s a perfectly good goal for them, the linesman probably should have kept the flag down.” Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.last_img read more
