MICE Team_50PLUS Celebrities Placard

The MICE Ranking team comprising Mousy, Meowy and Tweet-Tweet-Birdie  { real faces not posted owing to their astounding looks }  makes an unscheduled stop at the 50 PLUS Expo, held at Suntec City.

We had a blast of a time at the free photo booth set up by C3A to encourage mature members of our society to have fun in life.

The photographer chose 3 of the many life-size celebrities placard figures and place us behind it.

Our overflowing bodies instantly transformed into stylo-mylo* ones.
[*Singlish: Stylish, fashionable]

We notice a number of seniors around the other figurine placards, giggling as they whip out their handphones to take portraits of one another.

Hope there will be a repeat of this and more in next year’s 50 PLUS Expo!


A good social initiative from ~

C3A was set up in May 2007 with the role of championing the cause of active ageing in Singapore.

Internet Marketing: Do you keep the conversation going?

I read somewhere that the more expensive the retail price of a product or service, the longer the selling cycle.  This makes perfect sense because when it comes to purchasing a computer, LED television or even a car, you would surely have spent some time researching online and going to the store or car dealer to check out the item before parting with your hard-earned money.

This ties in with a figure shared by HubSpot that only 5% - 25% of the traffic on your site is ready to do business with you at the moment.  The rest are doing research.

My question to you is, if the majority of the people coming to your website are doing research, do you have a means to capture them as a lead to begin a conversation with them?  No, I am not talking about the 'Contact Us' page at the back of your site.  I am referring to an opt-in box where the visitor add his or her name and email address to receive further communication from you on a regular basis.

To continuously communicate with your visitors, using an auto-responder is a great idea.  Auto responders are actually a series of pre-written emails related to your product or services that are sent out to your prospects over a pre-designated interval of time.

There are several products available on the market that will capture visitors' details through an opt-in form and then send them regular automatic messages.

Some services are provided by MailChimp, Constant Contact, and Vertical Response.  MailChimp is free to use as long as your subscriber list is less than 2,000.  Constant Contact's services start as low as $15 for up to 500 contacts.

There are different views on how often you should be contacting your prospects.  The key is to stay in touch enough so that you are remembered, but now so much that you are perceived as spamming and your people opt-out of your mailing list.

So keep the conversation going with your visitors.  You never know, just because your business was the one to follow up with its visitors, this may result in the prospects coming back and becoming part of the 5% - 25% who now buys from you.

SilverNeedle Hospitality's Sleep Experience

Anyone who has ever tried Hilton Hotels' "Floating-on-Clouds" mattresses will not forget the experience.

Now, with its DreamWeave Sleep System™, Singapore-based SilverNeedle Hospitality is offering its hotel guests the best and most luxurious sleep experience available.

“SilverNeedle® Hospitality’s mission is to make business life better and we know sleep is serious business for our guests,” said Iqbal Jumabhoy, Managing Director & Group CEO of SilverNeedle® Hospitality. “Thus, we want to provide the best sleep experience so that our guests can be refreshed to take on the next day, whether they are on a holiday or business trip.”

SilverNeedle DreamWeave Sleep System

Consisting of the highest quality pillow-top mattress with gel-infused memory foam, the SilverNeedle® DreamWeave Sleep System™ guarantees guests nights of blissful sleep. As guests lie on the 300 mm mattress, their spines will maintain the natural alignment, thanks to the five-zone spring’s unique continuous coil design that conforms to the guests’ body shape. The design also provides firm yet comfortable support while minimizing partner disturbance.

The mattress’s sleep surface comprises the newly developed DreamFoam™ with a super fine structure that makes it more breathable than regular bedding foams, reducing heat build-up. The mattress is also treated to maintain hygienic freshness.

Complementing this top-quality mattress are Egyptian Cotton 300 thread count per inch linens and a selection of premium pillows.
