Growing Your Business From Local To Global

Picture Source

It’s hard enough to create a successful business on a small, local level, but taking that business to a global level and still achieving success is an entirely different story. Maybe you’re running a small store on the high street or maybe your small team is operating its business from a tiny office as part of a huge, overwhelming complex. Whatever the case, it’s easy for a local business to feel small against its huge competitors. If you’re struggling to step up your game and grow your business to that global scale, here’s some advice which might help.

Be confident about your brand.

The key to stepping out of the local playing field and entering the internal ring with big corporate players is understanding how to define your company. If somebody asks you what makes your business different to all your competitors within the same industry, you need to have a clear, sharp and defined answer. If you don’t have that, then your business can’t yet hope to stand out from the crowd or being anything more than ‘that local business’ offering a certain product or service on a small scale.

Customers care about the brand voice in a competitive business environment. They see the same businesses offering the same products over and over again, which means there’s an over-saturated market and far too many options for your potential target market. People can choose whoever they want for whatever product they want, so you need to give them reason to choose your business over competitors offering similar things if you really want to step out into the competitive business world and climb the ladder within your respective industry.

Physical growth.

Whilst physical marketing has almost died out in a digital world, there is still a lot to be said for understanding your target market in certain locations. If you look at your business’ statistics, you will still see clear trends and spikes in popularity with regards to certain locations. Your business model might simply be more popular in certain towns or cities than others, and the key to growing your organisation from a small firm which is ‘getting by’ to a global empire is to harness the power of those places in which your products and services are garnering the most attention and success from your target market.

You could work with a services office broker like London Offices, for example, to help find your company a new office in a location better suited to your business. The best way to understand your potential customers for areas in which seem your company seems to have delivered more goods or services is to move to that area. To grow into a successful organisation, as mentioned throughout this article, you need to be using a strong clientbase as the foundation for a successful marketing platform. You need to be building from the ground up in a place which seems to be attracting lots of interest for your business and using those intrigued and loyal customers to help spread the net and build a more successful following through word of mouth.

Do the research.

Going international requires a certain mentality, and your business needs to do its research if it wants to be reaching customers from all manner of towns, cities and countries foreign to your headquarters. Going global is a complex process, and you need to understand the difference in your target market within different regions along with competitors within new territories and the way to market your business within new territories in order to stand out. Payment solutions need to be available for all manner of customers from all manner of countries, and your brand needs to be a little wider in scope and accessibility in order to broaden your target market on an international level.

3 Useful Plugins for Your WordPress Website to Make Life Easy for You and Your Visitors

If you’ve been considering using WordPress to create a web presence for your personal projects or more commonly, to start an online business, you’re not alone. You’ll be joining the millions of people and businesses across the globe who have chosen to use one of the most popular and easy to use platforms available today.

Using this content management tool (CMS for short) gives you endless possibilities for simple website creation. No matter what you need: a basic blog, a simple one page website or an all singing and dancing online store with a blog to share endless articles everyday, WordPress can handle it.

But having a beautiful WordPress design doesn’t mean you’ll have a website that works well. If people visit you online and have difficulty navigating their way around, they’ll disappear quicker than you can say ‘freebie’. According to a study conducted by Microsoft, our attention spans are now down to eight seconds. In other words, make it easy for your visitors or annoy them. How do you do that? By making use of plugins, of which there are many.

Plugins will increase the functionality of your website ten-fold. There are also some you definitely shouldn’t go without because they’ll make your life easy too. Some are free and some will cost money. Let’s now take a look at three of the most useful plugins to install on your new WordPress website.

Wpforms

You visit a website, love what you see and you have a quick question you want to ask but, where’s the email address? Where’s the contact form? Argh! Forget it.

That’s the last kind of response you want from someone who’s interested in doing business with you. If they can’t find a way to get in touch effortlessly, they’re likely to leave and find another business to buy from.

The wpforms plugin is the easy way to install a contact form and it’s mobile responsive too. It’s a paid plugin with prices starting from $39/year. Fortunately, they also have a lite version which you can get for free at WordPress.org. This version has only the basic features but may be enough for your needs.

Ultimate FAQ

What if your visitors are super busy. They’re pushed for time and don’t want to send a message and then wait around for a response. They could just be plain lazy but either way, they want answers and they want them now.

No problem. Ultimate FAQ is here to save the day (and potentially your business from losing money). The beauty of this useful plugin is that not only can you list out a series of questions for your visitors to search through, you can even collect questions from them. But that isn’t the best part.

They can suggest an answer to their question and if you feel it’s a good answer, you can approve it. In other words, they do the work for you.

The cost for this plugin is $30 with 6 months support but again, they have a free version which doesn’t include premium features.

Jetpack

This plugin packs a punch and gives you access to an array of features. You can keep your site safe from malware and hackers, keep spammers away and back up your content. The features you get depend on whether you go for the free or paid version.

It can, in fact, form an integral part of your WordPress design too if you don’t wish to pay for a designer. You can choose from 165 professional themes to create whatever look you want and they come with customisation options too.

Mention Jetpack to most WordPress site owners and you’ll probably find a good majority of them wouldn’t go without it. If you want to make your life easy, join them for free. If you want more features, take up a paid membership starting from $3.50 per month or $39 per year.

There are thousands of plugins available and you’ll no doubt decide or even need to install many more. While it’s tempting to install plugin after plugin, do be careful. Some plugins can conflict with certain themes and if you install too many at one time, they could slow your website down. A slow website mixed with impatient visitors will equate to zero or a lot less business for you.

Also, ensure that you update your plugins regularly or let Jetpack do it for you, and keep an eye out for plugins that are no longer updated by the developer. The longer they go without an update, the more important it becomes to consider removing them. Outdated plugins are like secret gateways for hackers.

Top Advice for Those with a Beauty Injury: How to Make a Proper Claim for Compensation  

 

Although there are now many beauty treatments we can all benefit from, including such simple treatments as haircuts, waxing, facials, and so on, there is an alarming rise in the rate of injuries associated with such beauty treatments. The reason for this is simple: the beauty industry is still not properly regulated, and was, in fact, de-regulated a few years ago. This basically means that anyone with little training or skill can perform a beauty treatment, which may result in harm to the person receiving the treatment. If you have been a victim of a beauty treatment gone wrong, here’s what you should know about how to make a proper claim for compensation.

First, a look at some common beauty treatment injuries and complaints:

  • Damaged, brittle, or hair falling out
  • Burns from laser hair removal, waxing, or bleaching
  • Allergic responses or reactions to the improper use of or exposure to chemicals
  • Damage to the scalp due to the use of faulty equipment or hair products
  • Injuries or damage to the eye due to eyebrow or eyelash treatments, such as tattooing or dyeing
  • Injuries from tanning

There are other injuries related to beauty treatments, such as temporary or permanent scarring and even disfiguration, and, more often than not, beauty treatment injuries come with emotional and psychological effects as well.

A beauty injury is a personal injury

What you should know is that a beauty injury is classified as a personal injury, and, as such, you can be compensated for it. Most people assume that personal injuries are those associated with car accidents, falls and slips, and so on, but injuries due to beauty treatments fall under personal injury claims as well. For instance, if you went through a beauty treatment such as hair dyeing and were not given a patch test prior to the procedure, you may be able to claim compensation due to the technician’s or beautician’s negligence. Another misconception with beauty injury claims is that they are only about money or financial gains or returns. Some beauty treatment injuries can have very debilitating effects, and for these, the only way to move on and get funding for long-term treatment is to make a claim for compensation. Some individuals who suffer from permanent disfigurement or scarring have every right to claim compensation if it affects their quality of life.

Making a claim

If you would like to make a claim for a beauty injury, you have three years from your awareness of the injury to do so. To make a claim, you need proof, such as photographs, and you need other details such as the name of the salon or centre, the address, medical records, receipts, and other important evidence related to the injury.

Is Bingo Just For The Elderly?

Once considered to be a game catering exclusively to the elderly population, bingo has now reached our living rooms through the internet. A large number of online platforms have come up over the past decade where people can play multiple bingo and casino games. So is the player demographic still the same? Not really.

In Britain, the average bingo player is a 46 year old woman with a college degree and kids. It has been speculated that the rise in the number of middle aged female players has been because of the chat room features available on the bingo sites. People who play online bingo games can take part in active socializing through these chat rooms during their visit to the website they play on.

One of the main reasons of the popularity of these chat rooms is the chat hosts, endearingly called CHs in the bingo world. Chat hosts moderate the chats, play small games with players, answer questions, and keep everyone entertained. They also make sure that the player who has entered the chat room does not feel left out.

Contests, giveaways, and charity donations are other reasons why players stick to online bingo sites. They are rewarded and recognized for participation and become a part of a close-knit community of like minded people.

With all that it has to offer, bingo can be a great way to ease stress and make some new friends at the same time. If you start feeling that daily life is getting a little dull or monotonous (which it sometimes inevitably gets), why not hop on the band wagon and see how it takes you to bingo-land to make new friends?

Important Client Visiting Soon? Here’s How To REALLY Impress Them!

When you have clients that like to spend lots of money with your company, you want to do your best to impress them and keep them interested in your products and services. That’s because they naturally provide a lucrative source of income for your business.

You want to ensure that your relationship with them never sours and only ever flourishes. You’ve no doubt given your client the right impression of your company the first time they met you and used your products and services. But, when they next come to visit, how can you keep them impressed with your brand always at the forefront of their minds? Here are a few ideas to give you some inspiration:

Flickr

Give your office a spring clean

The last thing you want to do is invite your client to visit you when your office is in a state of disarray! That’s why it makes sense to have the office professionally cleaned before your important customer comes to visit you!

You should also ensure that your employees tidy up their workstation and get rid of any unsightly mess such as loose paperwork strewn across their desks.You may also wish to consider some ideas to improve the looks of your office, such as getting some new plants or framed pictures installed.

Have a plan of action ready

Another important thing to do is have a timetable of what you wish to do with your client during the day. For example, you may want to have a morning meeting with them, breaking up for lunch and then a tour of your production facilities or demonstration of your new products and services. Once you’re done, you could arrange to meet with them for dinner to strengthen your social bonds with your client.

Arrange to have them picked up and dropped off at their hotel

Is your client visiting you from another part of the country or, indeed, overseas? If so, it would be a kindness to arrange their transportation to and from your premises. Now here’s where you can REALLY wow them: you could have an executive chauffeur drive them around!

Believe it or not, the costs of hiring a limousine or executive transport aren’t that much higher than say booking a similar service through a local taxi firm. It will give your client a sense of status and importance. Plus, it shows them that you are not afraid of treating them well and that you value their business.

Don’t be late

One of the bugbears of any customer visiting a supplier or partner organization is waiting around for the people they have to meet! Punctuality is crucial with both people you meet for the first time and existing clients. With that in mind, don’t be late for your important client meeting!

Be prepared

Last, but not least, you should ensure that you prepare well in advance for their visit. Have all the necessary agenda items available at your disposal. Make sure your technology is working (i.e. computers, Wi-Fi, projectors) and that you have staff available to explain things of a technical nature that you can’t.

Good luck!

An Essential Tech Guide for Law Firms

Flickr

When people imagine law firms and the lawyers in them, they don’t tend to think much about the technology that actually comes in useful for them. They think about equipment and stacks of paper and expensive suits, almost as though lawyers needed nothing else to keep their business going. Perhaps that was true, once.

These days, law firms need to get engaged with technology in some capacity. The same goes for any business out there, right? If you’re starting up a law firm, or just want to know more about the inner workings of one, then take a look at this guide to the technology concerns of your average law firm!

Desktops, laptops, or tablets?

Desktop computers aren’t exactly under threat, but many newer law firms do seem to be opting for laptops, especially with how mobile lawyers often find themselves. Which, of course, raises the question: was a move from a desktop a good idea? And, given the required mobility, shouldn’t all lawyers be using tablets now? Well, desktops should certainly be mainstays of the office. If it can be afforded, then a desktop at the office and a laptop on the go is probably the best approach. As for tablets, they can be useful in some scenarios (especially reading documents on the move), but they’re not great when it comes to typing at length.

Software

People often underestimate the importance of software to the legal industry. One thing to remember is that a lot of the software that other businesses use are also required in law firms. Good examples of this are accounting, communication, billing, and calendar software. Of course, law firms also have their own needs that can only be dealt with using pretty specific software tailored for this industry. When you think about it, the need for interactive legal accounts, practice and document management software becomes pretty clear.

Social media

Yep, just like every other business out there, social media is useful in this field, too! But it may not be quite as important as it is for other businesses. Social media is great for increasing outreach, making it an extremely useful tool when it comes to marketing. But law firms don’t tend to engage much with people unless they’re directly linked to cases or potential cases. So it’s better to take more of a marketing approach if you decide to use social media as a law firm. It’s not absolutely essential – after all, it’s worth remembering that many profitable law firms in the U.S. don’t use Twitter!

Cybersecurity

If there’s one thing that law firms should know, it’s that security is paramount. They have access to extremely sensitive data, and leaks to unauthorized individuals or even the public at large can not only severely disrupt a case, but also bring heavy and expensive legal repercussions on the firm itself. So as you consider the technology infrastructure and necessary gadgets and software for your firm, you must always keep cybersecurity firmly in mind. Only work with trusted manufacturers and developers!

Thinking Of Outsourcing? Avoid These Potential Pitfalls

Hopefully, there will come a time when the business has to consider outsourcing. Outsourcing is an excellent sign because it means the firm is growing. Plus, there are plenty of benefits to bringing in an outside team. But, there are also plenty of pitfalls you have to watch out for, too. They don’t mean that outsourcing is bad and you should avoid it because you shouldn’t. What they mean is that you have to be extra vigilant before you sign on the dotted line.

Here are the things to watch out for when you go from in-house to out-house.

Using An ‘International’ Firm

No one wants to seem xenophobic, especially in the Trump era, but this has nothing to do intolerance. Instead, it has everything to do with communication and a smooth transition for the firm. Although businesses in India are cheap, they are thousands of miles away. It’s for this reason that companies are choosing sites like http://www.rouge-media.com because they know they will have a better connection. If they need something doing, they can get on the phone at any time of day and figure out a solution. That isn’t possible when your ‘partner’ is five and half hours in front.

Failing To Develop Goals

It’s amazing how many companies choose an outsourcer and think that the hard work is over. As a result, they do none of the important tasks like coming up with business targets. After a few weeks, the partnership hits a snag and they have no idea why. Without goals and objectives, there is no point in hiring an outside firm in the first place. If you don’t have any way to measure their effectiveness, you might as well throw the money down the table. Plus, it means the out-of-house company won’t understand their role according to www.workforce.com.

Underestimating Participation

Implementing your goals and targets means you will have to use up a lot of time and energy. Yes, you read that right – you! The outsourcer will do most of the heavy lifting, but they need help before they start. For example, they need all of the relevant information to hit their objectives. Otherwise, the agreement will fall flat. So, you will need to copy files and pass them along, as well as sitting down and thrashing out both parties’ roles. Then, there is the obligatory meeting every month or so to make sure everything is on track. And http://www.businessnewsdaily.com says don’t forget that you have to talk to the workforce. Outsourcing affects them, and they deserve an explanation. Regarding outsourcing, you should always be ready to spend time and energy.

Picking Blindly

What does this mean? It means that there is a temptation to choose the first company you see. As soon as you see them, you think ‘oh, they are great – they have everything we need!’ And, they might be the perfect addition to the payroll, but it is a bad idea to give them the job without further inspection of the market. Even if it doesn’t seem likely, there might be a better firm that is cheaper and more productive. You will never know unless you do extensive market research.

Avoid these mistakes and the partnership should work a treat.

Resurrecting Your Business: From A Slowing Spiral To Going Viral

Many businesses hit the wall at some point. Perhaps you’ve run out of new ways to impress your existing customers or perhaps the constant evolution of your specific industry is moving too fast for your company to keep up. As hard-working and determined as you and your team may be, it’s easy for the slowing spiral to take hold and your business’ potential to start dwindling, even if you think you’re doing everything right.

Picture Source

Resurrecting a business after a rough and unexpected turning point might seem like an insurmountable task on the surface, but that’s only the case if your company continues operations in exactly the same way as it is currently. The key to bringing your business back to life and transforming it into a viral sensation both online and offline is to start thinking in a new way. If you’re giving your company new life, then that means doing things differently. Here are some pieces of advice to help you bring your organisation back from the brink and help turn it into a sensation with your target audience.

A strong website.

In the modern age, every business has a website. You likely already have one. If not, it’s impressive that you’ve built a company in the modern day without one, but the days of old marketing and traditional promotional tactics are out of the window now. It’s time to start from scratch, either way, and build a strong, captivating site for your business. Whether you hire somebody new to do it or simply tell your IT and designing team to think outside the box and start again, there are a few keys to success here.

Mainly, you should be focusing the redesign of the website around SEO (search engine optimisation) techniques. That means a layout which is responsive to all manner of devices, whether it’s a laptop or an iPhone, and keywords which are linked to commonly-searched terms by the potential customers you’re targeting. This has the effect of pushing your business higher up the search rankings and helping you go “viral”, whilst also impressing any visitors to your website. You’ll come across as a professional brand which surely must offer goods and services as neat and modern as its homepage.

Picture Source

Use online platforms correctly.

This is a big one in the online world. Your business might have social media profiles, but it might not be properly utilising them. You could research SMM (social media marketing) to better understand how your business could be using social networks to reach its vast audience of potential customers. It’s easier than ever to find your target market, even if that means there’s more competition than ever.

You need to focus your efforts to find the right consumers. Facebook advertising and live videos on Instagram are all things which could help to make a human connection with your customers. If you make your mark, people will share your content and do a chunk of the marketing for you. If you’re a restaurant, you could share succulent Instagram pics of your meals. It’s about marketing without being pushy.

Picture Source

Keep up with your existing customers.

Going viral as a business in the digital era is about making a real impression on the client-base you already have, whether it’s small or large. That means monitoring any mentions of your brand on social media and getting stuck in with the conversation so as to prove that you’re a friendly and approachable company. It might also involve rewarding the loyalty of customers with discounts or other deals if they refer their friends to your store.

Don’t Run Before You Can Walk! 6 Essential Tips For Entrepreneurs

Flickr

In the business world, it’s important that you never run before you can walk. That is one of the biggest mistakes made by new entrepreneurs. When you consider that 50% of all companies fail within the first six months, you understand the importance of getting things right. Today, I’m going to highlight some advice that should help you to weather those early storms. If you put these tips into action, you stand a decent chance of making a profit. It’s all about using the latest technology and strategies to ensure you don’t overspend. Even if you’ve managed to get a reasonable investment from the bank, you still don’t want to waste the cash. So, read this article carefully and apply the advice to your business as soon as possible.

  • Use specialist software to save money

There are lots of different software packages available for business owners these days. Most of them require an initial investment, but they will help you to limit spending in the long run. There’s no need to employ an accounting department if you use the latest tech. Some applications can manage the process from start to finish. They automatically record your income and outgoings, so you don’t have to do anything manually. You might also consider software for other tasks such as ordering or inventory control. Considering that, now is the time to search online and read user reviews. There are hundreds of articles promoting the latest advancements, and you just need to work out which is most suitable. You will either pay an upfront fee or an annual subscription in most instances.

  • Make sure you get favourable premises leasing terms

At some point, you will need to move out of your spare bedroom or garage to dedicated facilities. When that time comes, you need to make sure you get the best terms possible on your lease. A business property lease is a complex document that details the terms of the deal. There is always room for negotiation, and so you might need to employ some legal assistance. Ideally, you want an arrangement that means you can leave the property with little notice. That is because you don’t know if your company will succeed, and you don’t want lots of debt if it fails. You also need to make sure the lease explains the landlord’s duties. The law states they are responsible for making repairs and dealing with maintenance. However, you should aim to get that in writing, so there’s no confusion.

  • Market using free solutions like social media

You could have the best products or services in the world, but you’ll never make a killing if people don’t hear about them. With that in mind, you will have to develop a robust marketing strategy to promote your brand. Even so, you probably won’t have a lot of cash to spend during the early stages. That means the idea of employing an agency to manage to task doesn’t make sense. You just need to identify the best free advertising solutions at your disposal. For example, it doesn’t cost anything to open business pages on social media websites. Millions of people use Facebook and Twitter every single day. So, there’s a good chance you could reach at least some of your target market. You can also invest small amounts of money in the paid promotional tools on those domains.

  • Don’t employ staff until there is no other option

Lots of new business owners make the mistake of hiring team members too early. It doesn’t make sense to offer people permanent contracts until your company is stable. So, do yourself a favour and try to find friends and family members who are willing to assist. When the workload becomes too much, you could contact local recruitment agencies. Hiring temporary staff is a wise move because they don’t have the same rights as other workers. You can get rid of them whenever you like, and you don’t have to stress about holidays or sick pay. Again, the internet is your friend when it comes to finding a decent agency. Just take the time to read reviews from previous clients, and you should identify a suitable company fast.

  • Dominate one market before moving onto another

The last thing you want to do is spread yourself too thin. For that reason, you should focus your efforts on a single market until you steal the lion’s share. If you’re based in the UK, you should sell to people in your home country before looking overseas. Otherwise, things will become too complicated, and you won’t dominate any market. Of course, you should always try to expand when the time is right. So, create a growth plan that highlights all the milestones you hope to reach. You should then know when to start selling products in other nations around the world. Just bear in mind that you will always make a smaller profit when shipping goods overseas. That is because there are lots of different fees and charges involved. Again, don’t run before you can walk. Research the subject before pushing ahead.

  • Make use of business and legal advisors

There are lots of specialists in the world who provide expert advice to entrepreneurs in your position. If you’re going to spend a lot of money on anything this year, you should contact them for information. There could be something you’ve overlooked that’s limiting your progress. Those with the right knowledge and experience will always show you the best route forwards. That is especially the case when it comes to legal matters you might encounter. For instance, maybe someone makes a patent dispute claim. Your company would crumble if you attempted to fight it without assistance.

If you manage to put all those business tips into action this year, you will stand the best chance of success. As you can see from the advice on this page, it’s all about making sure you take things steady. Everyone wants to make a fortune straight away, but the corporate landscape doesn’t work like that. Rushing into any new ideas is a sure-fire way to guarantee your failure. Good luck guys! I hope you make a killing.

Don’t Get Swamped By Your Studies

A lot of us, at some point in our lives, feel the need to further our lives by taking on courses in education, to either allow us to develop better skills in certain subjects or to enable us to gain better jobs in industries which we would like to work in. The draw of joining an educational system is appealing to many of us, as we are likely to meet new friends (or even partners), will be able to have fun while improving our education, and can almost feel free spirited when we join a college or university as the pressure of working in a full time job can be alleviated through joining a full time degree (or similar) and allowing our focus to be completely encompassed by the education we have decided to take on. However, many of us do not put the correct thought into what a degree will mean to our personal situation, such as finance, keeping friendships with our new friends, and how it will affect our family life. When we are busy with new aspects of our lives, it can be quite easy to neglect the details of our lives which were important before and we should do all we can to maintain personal relationships, keep a close eye and have good control of our finances, and we should also try not to get drawn into the overly social aspect of what taking on a degree or joining college can do. It is important that we keep a clear mind and focus on the job in hand – furthering our education.

Picture source

When we enrol on a course of higher education, it is important that we take into consideration all of the expenses and outgoings that will affect us while we are at a university or college, or a night class. These expenses and outgoings can consist of travel (public transport can work out to be expensive if not booked well in advance or if your route is quite a long one; owning and driving a car can also be expensive with all of the different legislation needed and obvious factors like gas), study additions (books will be needed, as will things like pens, notepads, laptops and tablets), you may want to invest in some new clothes so that you can give the best impression that you can to fellow students and your lecturers/professors, and you may also need to think about the cash you will need to enable you to socialize when class is over. Socializing at higher education is a vital part of getting to know your campus, and fellow students. It can consist of meeting for drinks, meals or even attending gigs or going to the cinema as a group. Of course, there is also the added aspect – and perhaps dreaded aspect – of paying for your tuition fees which can work out to be very expensive especially if you have not applied for bursaries or have not received a scholarship.

Picture source

With all this in mind, you will need to keep a tight grip on your finances and control all outgoings even before you start your education. If you were to enter your course with a loose grip on your finances then it is highly likely that you may not have much money to allow you to enjoy your time there and will be worrying about how far you can make your finances stretch. If you do find yourself struggling and think that it could be beneficial for you to research how to manage your money better, you could look at debt management with Money Expert as you could get professional help which will allow you to gain peace of mind and could also take a lot of worry and stress away.

It is important that you enjoy your time while studying, so you should take all of the negative factors away. This will allow you to completely focus on furthering your education, gaining new knowledge, and making new friends. Yes, money will be an important factor during your studies but if you manage your finances well it will allow you to gain an insight into how good money management works which will set you in good stead for the future when you leave your education and manage to get a job. If you gain knowledge of how to manage money well, then you can also pass all details and aspects of this knowledge onto family and friends – meaning you will have influenced others.
