It's Importance in Marketing

In marketing, the term "product cycle" has immense importance. Let us see what it actually means and the importance of it.
Definition: Product Cycle can be defined to be the different stages, a product passes through the life of it. These stages are:
Birth Stage: In this stage a product is born. It is introduced in the market. A lot of marketing & advertising activities are needed in this stage. It is needed so that the consumer becomes aware of the product.
Growth Stage: In this stage the product starts to grow after its introduction in the market.
Saturation Stage: In this stage, the product reaches the peak. The sales volume is maximum at this stage.
Decline Stage: A product becomes to decline here. New competitors emerge & the need for the product gradually decreases.
All these stages form a graph. During the birth stage, a product needs extensive marketing and advertising. This is needed so that the product reaches to the target consumers. Strategies have to be worked out carefully so that the product can beat the competitors and reach out to the consumers. Awareness is the main thing here. If proper awareness can be created during this stage, a product can progress to the next stage.
After the awareness is built, the sales start to increase. The consumers start to buy the product as they become aware of it. The product competes efficiently with the competitors and starts to bring revenue to the company. The dealer, distributor network becomes very active at this stage. The distribution network created at the time of birth of the product becomes fully functional and operational and starts doing their job very efficiently. Both the company and the dealer and distribution partners benefit at this stage.
During the saturation stage, the product attains the peak. It either becomes the market leader or grows to the product's utmost potential as per the support provided to it.
The Decline stage marks the end of the life cycle of a product. The reasons can be:
- Introduction of new products in the market.
- Increase in competition.
- Attrition on part of Dealers and Distributors as they start getting better deals from rival competitor products.
- Failure of the company in general or the company's desire to diversify elsewhere.
Thus in general a Product Cycle is like the life cycle of a product. The Product hence is like a baby. It is born, attains adulthood, completes the objectives and die a natural death at last or becomes feeble.

Use Social Media to Promote Your Care Business

Its 2012 and believe it or not, some still refuse to make use of social media to advance their business causes. While some of this hesitation is normal - as technology is never embraced the same by all - one has to wonder if even a small business can survive nowadays without it.
Sure the neighborhood restaurant that caters to a younger crowd finds success with social media postings of menu specials or the likelihood that certain famous people may stop by. However, care businesses can benefit as well. Here are a few points to consider and make use of as you put social media to use.
I. Its OK to Think Local
As you embrace Facebook and other media its OK to reach out to those who are local. Let's face it; some guy in Sydney, Australia is likely not going to try and place his mom in your small assisted living home or steer someone from his church who may be able to use your services if you are located in Canton, Michigan or St. Louis, Missouri.
So as you reach out to others to build a group of friends, focus on the baby-boomers or at least stay in relevant territory (ages 35-75) since people in their early 20's and teenagers are less focused on long-term care and would not be the ideal bunch to expect a referral from. They may also be less socially engaged (outside of their peer groups) in church, etc. and not be aware of who may have a need for what you provide.
II. Post Meaningful Items
Nothing sells better than testimonials or at least positive experiences. So post newsletters or photos with comments from people you have served and use these items to educate others about what you do in home care or in assisted living. Of course you do not want to use someone's comments or photos without their permission so perhaps you can build into your assisted living agreements permission to use the images of residents or clients for marketing purposes.
III. Tell Your Story Without Appearing Boastful
Writing, as is the case with most communication styles is an art. It is important to tell others about how you are affecting lives without sounding like you just changed the world. Boastful people turn the rest of us off and their words can leave a bad taste in a reader's minds.
Speak about situations managed and challenges overcome without coming across as Rev. Ike who just walked on water.
We agree that spending an inordinate amount of time on the internet for anything can create an imbalance in anyone's thinking and can be a contributor to social isolation. So we are not encouraging excesses.
Our message is one that advices you to at least embrace - to the extent you can - the usage of a tool that is an integral part of modern small business. Perhaps you can set aside 2 to 6 hours per week for you to engage in networking on LinkedIn, posting on Facebook and tweeting memorable business items.
In the course of an entire year this could add up to more than 300 hours of high quality marketing and networking. What business would not benefit from that?
Of course you have to be careful not to allow yourself to be pulled into the more mundane aspects of social networking such as meaningless interaction with strangers for hours at a time. As long as that trap is avoided all should be well and your care business will benefit.
Thanks for allowing me to share.

Reasons for a Security Fence

When you own a home or business you have to think about safety. Safety measures can mean a lot to your insurance company and your visitors. You want people to feel good about your place and know that you care. The best way to do this is put in a security fence. A good fence can even have an alarm on it to give you piece of mind from intruders. Vandalism can cost you a lot in money, so take protection against this. Swimming pools and construction sites are great reasons to have a big fence.
Having your own home is an exciting thing. You may have horses, small animals or even a swimming pool. These three things have one huge thing in common; a security fence. You need to protect yourself and your property from all sorts of problems. Animals can get out of their pens if you do not have the correct fencing. You can have some serious accidents or even death.
Keeping your home safe should be on the very top of your list of things to keep secure all the time. Keeping not only yourself, but your family safe is very important and should be secure year round. Putting up a fence is a good way to keep your family safe. If you want to insure the safety of your family you should get someone who is an experienced professional in putting up fences for home security purposes. If your fence is put up wrong it could be very easy for trespassers and burglars to get onto your property and even into your house.
Animals should also be one of your most important priorities when looking to buy security fences. Animals can be at risk of escaping from your property, being stolen and even getting hurt. This is not good for you or your animals. Many horses, cows, donkeys, and various other farm animals are in simple barbed wire fences. This is a very cheap way to contain your pets.
Installation of a security fence is easy. You can put up your own security fence; however, this can be very tedious and time consuming. If you do not want to do it yourself, then you can hire a company to do it for you. They can also put up, deliver, and remove temporary fencing.

They are very cost effective and can keep you from spending money later. You can hire people to put it up and take it down or you can do it yourself. This can also save you a lot of money. The best part is the alarm system. When someone tries to access your fence and alarm will go off and alert the police. They can then catch the people doing the crime, having a good fence is a great idea.
