Window Treatment and Design Ideas for Tranquillity and Peace

A tranquil and peaceful environment is one that is created by many factors. One very important factor, especially when it comes to windows, are window treatments. Different types of window treatments will create different atmospheres in your home.

Window blinds are an excellent choice for windows that receive direct sunlight. Honeycomb blinds in Sydney provide greater peace in a home because they have fantastic insulating properties and noise cancelling effects as well.

The two most common types of window treatments available today are drapes and curtains. However, not all curtains or drapes will provide the same benefits to your space.

Other possibilities include roman blinds and plantation shutters in Penrith homes, which create a classic elegant style.

You should consider different alternatives depending on what is already present in your home when it comes to furniture and decor pieces. For example, if you have a lot of dark wood furnishings then lighter coloured window treatments may be more suitable. This way the windows will not take away from other features which are already accenting the room such as wooden floors or sofas for instance. Other decor ideas include having a lot of greenery and plants in the home. This can be achieved by using floor plants or even hanging some in baskets from the ceiling to create a more open and airy feel which may help bring peace into your living environment.

It is also important that you consider different styles of window treatments. For example, do not go for all heavy drapes if there are already very large windows throughout your entire space as this will make it appear smaller or cramped rather than expansive and airy. If you have small windows then something like plantation shutters would be far better because they allow light to enter through while still keeping privacy intact since they are solid wood panels with slats across them at regular intervals. They can be painted any colour so decorating becomes an easy task.

Brian Fanale Review – Is Brian Fanale Really a Network Marketing Rock Star?

So, who is Brian Fanale?

Brian was an unknown and struggling Network Marketer not too long ago. As he has told his story many times, he was broke, frustrated, and working as a bartender and playing music in his own band.

But Brian’s vision was bigger than that!

He tried several different companies in the network marketing industry, but continued to fail. He was so frustrated with his life, and he started to become consumed with studying the top network marketing leaders – and then he swore he would be one of them, no matter the cost.

Brian realized after seeing what the top home business entrepreneurs were doing, that his senior business partners were a joke and could not teach him how to have the success he was desiring.

So, Brian went on a mission and became obsessed with discovering the ‘ULTIMATE SECRET’ that would allow him unlimited prosperity.

There is an old adage that says, ‘When the student is ready, the teacher appears.’ Brian found the training of another top industry leader and everything just clicked! He achieved success very quickly from that point on.

Fast forwarding to today: Brian now holds a number of records in the NWM industry, and is one of the top earners in one of the biggest Direct Sales companies in business.

So do you want to know which company Brian is aligned with?

He is involved in the Carbon Copy Pro business model. CCP is a system for marketing a business, but it centers on ‘Wealth Masters International’, a direct sales company. Since reviewing Carbon Copy Pro in this article along with Brian Fanale would be information overload, go ahead and visit my website in the signature box for a CCP review.

The comparison between CCP and MLM is very interesting, and can be helpful for you as well.

Brian is the furthest thing from a scam. In fact, if you really want to know, you can call him personally from his blog. His phone number is right on there. He has absolutely nothing to hide. He’s definitely the real thing. A fantastic network marketer and entrepreneur.

So would you benefit from working with Brian Fanale and his team?

Well, this depends completely on what your visions and goals are.

This is because his company is a direct sales company, not network marketing. So I can tell you right now, if you want to build a business that provides a long term, steady residual income, then CCP is not for you.

This is nothing against Brian Finale, as I hold him in only the highest regard, but his goals are to have a business that creates up front cash flow more so than long term residual and stable income.

Now this is why I personally would not be interested in joining Brian in his business, but everyone has different goals. You need to choose a company that is right for YOU.

Will Brian Fanale’s industry training provide you with the tools and knowledge that you need to succeed, regardless of what network marketing company you are a part of?

Absolutely!

He has an extensive array of marketing and business skills and will help you immensely and to the best that he can. I would know, because I currently work with him and use much of his system for my own business.

So does Brian keep any ‘secrets’ from us?

Coming from a fellow Home Business/MLM/Network Marketing leader, he absolutely does not! And Brian himself would tell you the same.

What Network Marketing entrepreneurs lack is simply 2 fundamental things:
1. The Right Mindset
2. The Right Marketing Education

In closing, here are some thoughts for you:

If the success you KNOW you can achieve in the Network Marketing profession is still not happening for you, there are ONLY two REASONS why:

1. You don’t have enough quality leads to talk to. (Learn some DECEPTIVELY simple online marketing skill sets)
2. If you do have a consistent lead flow of qualified prospects to talk to, then you must not be calling them.

Either that or you are not using the correct phone approaches.

That’s it! In the most simply terms, that’s it – you have to have enough leads to talk to, and you have to know how to talk to them. If you’re still not making any money but you’re applying these two aspects, then you just need a marketing system that works!

B2B Direct Marketing – Is it the End of the Road For White Envelopes?

Unless you work in accounts and you are looking for payment cheques there is absolutely no joy to be had from receiving mail in a soulless white envelope; particularly one with a black “cheapmail” frank. You just know that it is likely to be some pointless junk mail. So why do B2B direct mailers persist with sending out their expensive promotional print in bland and unimaginative envelopes when they themselves treat their own morning mail with the same disdain?

The answer is, of course, that white envelopes are one of the cheapest options and sending via the new “cheapmail” operators saves even more money. The fact that their own B2B direct marketing looks like everyone else’s doesn’t appear to matter – just as long as it’s the cheapest option.

Hours and hours will have been spent in meetings with the design agency to get the graphics exactly right on the promotional piece. Creative types will have agonized over the text and everyone in the decision making chain will have contributed their own two-penn’orth to try to make sure that nothing has been missed. Discussions will have taken place over the paper stock. Management will have taken hours to decide on the right mailing list. You don’t want the mail to land on Monday or Friday or near a Bank Holiday so when should it go out? So much time and effort will have been spent on getting the promotional piece exactly right.

And then they go and send it out in a white envelope that looks 100% like almost every other piece of mail that is going to land on their customer’s desk. Incredible!

It is well documented that what the American’s call “dimensional mail” generates a far greater response rate than “flat mail”. There is definitely a feeling of anticipation in the air when a packet or parcel arrives with the morning mail and it is quite likely that packets will be the first items to be opened and therefore gain the lion’s share of the customer’s attention. However, not every promotional mailing can be sent out as a big package – but how about making a small one?

Let’s start at the beginning. First of all, do you really want to send an A4 leaflet, folded twice and inserted in a white DL envelope? If you do then that is your choice. However, if you want those leaflets to be read by your customer then you need to think very carefully about what you really need to send.

There are lots of alternatives to leaflets. Promotional pocket media products are a very good example. Z Cards took the world by storm when they were introduced some 15 years or so ago, giving birth to the pocket media revolution. The genre is even more popular today with many more ingenious designs on the market in the UK. Well known products such as Starburst folds, U Cards, Hidden Books and Foldilocks Cards all provide an excellent alternative to an A4 leaflet or you might just want to produce a pocket sized booklet.

Whatever your choice or promotional product, it has to be better than a plain old A4 leaflet. But how to send it is the next question. Well, how about getting your agency to design a custom made mailing pack. Maybe something the size of a CD case would be a good idea so that it would seem like something interesting when your customer comes to open it. I realise that it seems like an expensive option but as your other method has a very good chance of going straight in the bin that just seems like throwing money down the drain.

Your agency can design a pack but there is no need to go overboard as something dead simple like a sleeve with a slide-out tray will do the trick. Most printers will be able to make this for you but if you need to see examples, one company in the UK, Whitney Woods Ltd, is already offering this service and features photos and videos on their website.

Sending out your promotional mail in the form of a small pack will dramatically increase the chances of it being opened in a positive manner. Making your literature pocket-sized and with an interactive element will help your promotional piece to pass the “3 second test” and should ensure that the mailing has a much greater chance of success than the original option.

In B2B direct marketing, maybe the fate of the white envelope is sealed!
