White House Marketing is Happy, Here Are Five Ways You Can be Too

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We all have a different set of goals in life. Some people seek money, some seek fame, some seek power, and some seek something completely different. However, there is one thing that everyone wants out of life: happiness. Unfortunately being happy doesn’t always just happen. The White House Marketing team has compiled the following list of secrets to happiness that we use ourselves, every day.

Seek New Experiences: It is hard to feel happy when you feel stuck. Routine and monotony lead to boredom. If you are always searching for new and exciting experiences, you will be more likely to find things that make you happy.

Force Yourself to be Positive: You probably don’t realize how much control you have over your own feelings. By simply reminding yourself to think positively, you will soon find each day seeming a little brighter.

Nurture Your Relationships: Humans are a naturally social species. We enjoy, and in many ways need, regular interaction with others. Although you shouldn’t maintain detrimental relationships, you should make sure to nurture relationships with people who make you happy. After all, being able to share your journey with others is always fun.

Look for Meaning and Pursue It: Whether you’re the type of person who finds fulfillment in your career, with your family, in religion, or in some other way, it is important to recognize this and pursue meaning. If you’re in a job you dislike and have always dreamed of a different career, it is worth investing the time to pursue that dream.

Help Someone In Need: Altruism can help to satisfy both our social and fulfillment needs. It is hard not to feel good when you spend time help someone less fortunate. Try to regularly find time to help someone who needs it.

Everyone wants to be happy. At White House Marketing, we have realized that happiness is in our reach if we actively seek it. Use these five tips and you can start making yourself happy too.

White House Marketing Discusses Four Tips For Impactful Public Speaking

Personal interactions are the cornerstone of White House Marketing’s business. So if you walk into our office, chances are you’ll find quite a few strong speakers. Unfortunately, this skill doesn’t come naturally for everyone. So, we’ve identified these four tips that can help make you a more impactful speaker:

 

  1. Before You Speak, Think About Your Audience: Before you say anything, you should be sure to understand your audience as well as you can. The best speeches and presentations are always tailored for the people listening to them. You can’t do this unless you first spending time analyzing those people. Be sure to ask yourself who they are and why they will be interested in what you have to say. From there, focus what you say on the parts that are most engaging for your audience.

 

  1. Hook Your Audience From the First Word: This may seem obvious; and frankly, it is. However, it isn’t something you should take for granted. The first couple of minutes of your presentation are crucial. You should spend the most time considering your first few words to ensure that they will immediately make your audience interested in listening to the rest of your speech.

 

  1. Always Include a Solution: In every speech or presentation, you should be addressing a problem that is relevant to your audience. Always make sure that you are offering a solution to that problem during your speech. This is the crux of persuasive speaking.

 

  1. Ask Your Audience to do Something: Every presentation should include a call to action for your audience. If your speech has made an impact, they should be inspired to take some sort of action. However, if you neglect to tell them what you want them to do, you will be missing a significant opportunity.

 

At White House Marketing, we have repeatedly leveraged these public speaking habits to our benefit. Keep these four ideas in mind when you are writing your next speech or presentation. Hopefully you will find that you are far more impactful and persuasive.

White House Marketing Discusses Productivity, Time Management

The White House Marketing team is an extremely energetic group. One of our favorite topics of conversation around the office is productivity hacking. We have all tried a variety of different tips and tricks to get more done in a day; some of which have been very useful, others not as much. Interestingly the most universally effective productivity secret we have found is also one of the simplest: work on the most important tasks during your most productive hours.

 

This is based on the fact that everyone naturally has a certain period in the day when they are their most productive. When and how long this time is varies from person to person; but we all have that point in the day when we get the most done. It is only logical to focus on our highest-leverage tasks during this period. That way we can be super productive when working on more impactful work, and save the other stuff for the rest of the day.

 

Unfortunately, identifying that certain time of day is not the easiest thing to do. We’ve found that there are a few steps that you can take to efficiently map out your productivity flow throughout the day. The first trick to this process is choosing a relatively light day; if you try to identify your most productive hours on a day when you have no time to rest, you won’t have the necessary control over your schedule.

 

The next step is extremely simple: keep track of what you do in a day and how you feel while doing it. With that data in hand, start to analyze the patterns. You should begin noticing times when you feel in the groove and get a lot done. Once you’ve identified the best time, use them to accomplish your most important tasks for the day.

 

If you are still struggling to find you most productive hours, try asking others for their observations of your flow throughout the day; they may notice something that you haven’t. If you take advantage of these tricks, you can greatly increase your productivity each day.

White House Marketing, Inc., Reflects on Workplace Innovation

Every business claims to want innovation but White House Marketing, Inc., frequently finds that sometimes it is unintentionally discouraged. To keep a flow of new and creative ideas, your office needs to provide the right environment and managers need to be prepared to embrace change.

Innovation requires change and risk-taking. Both these aspects can be terrifying for those in leadership who likely succeeded under a different set of rules. Rather than perceive change as a threat, accept that all things change—trends, market forces, consumer preferences, and even the nature of the available workforce. Fighting these changes will not help your business evolve. Accepting them as reality and finding the best way to make innovation work for your office will support growth.

 

Additionally, you should develop a structure within your workplace that allows team members to share new ideas. Put aside time for special meetings where everyone discusses what does and does not work and their perceptions on how to improve. Pay attention to emails from workers that suggest other outcomes. Remember to respond to them and do not just put them aside as a low priority. Team members who do not feel like you listen to them are unlikely to share their ideas and may take them to another firm.

 

What’s more, leadership is also necessary for innovation to thrive. Maintain a combination of creative people, processes, and focus. Listen to feedback and do not become defensive. Criticizing a process that seems inefficient is not the same as feedback on your leadership skills or personality.

 

Finally, an innovative workplace is one of open communication. It allows dialog between leaders and their teams. It respects the experience of others. The best way to promote new ideas is to build an environment where they are welcome.
