Posted on: October 24th, 2013 by Terrell Hammel 2 Comments
Every Door Direct Mail (EDDM) is a time- and money-saving marketing tool that allows you to blanket an entire neighborhood or an entire zip code with your advertisements and/or special offers.

So you, the tour or travel agency, are in a unique place to help them. All you have to do is hand ...

Shapes inspire emotions in people. Subconsciously, we perceive shapes with sharp edges as harsh, stern, and serious, just as we perceive people with “sharp” features as being more “business” than people with soft, rounded features. Go ahead, visualize a face, male or female, with soft, supple rounded cheeks, a circular nose, big round eyes, and plump lips. Now contrast this with an image of a person who has a sharp jawline, a long, angular nose, small slitted eyes, and a thin-lipped mouth. Which seems more ...
