10 Vital Steps to Improve Your Triathlon Swim

This article is completely focused on traiathlon and helps the triatheletes to recognize their talent and abilities, all that they need is a different techniques and styles of training to improve their swimming skills. For instance, the six feet, four inches Phelps can propel 2m like a speed boat, which is not possible for a normal people. And also he swims 45 miles per week, which is incredible but you have to concentrate on other two sports along with swimming. Recently I completed a triathlon in St George Utah, and it was an incredible experience to say the least.

The basic pool principle is that all triathletes and swimmers should learn to streamline their techniques and maintain their body strength then it is easy to achieve their goal faster.

If you are a beginner in triathlon swim, then you can go with any stroke in the swim, but focous mostly on freestyle because it gives you best cardio workout. Freestyle stroke helps you move all your muscles and helps you build core strength and also helps you burn calories. Here you can find 10 steps to improve your triathlon swim.

  1. Swim tall: Terry Laughlin says that water is thousand times denser than air. The important factor is to slide your body through the small hole in the water. Think that the central axis expanding from the apex of your head to the other opposite end of the pool. Turn your body along with axis for each stroke, extending your top arm forward, and keep your abs and lower back tight as you use the force from both your legs and arms.
  2. Dive an anchor: Swimming requires movements from both arms and feet. With your hand and a forearm you hold the water at the right angle towards your upper arm and plowing in like you are collecting sand with a scoop. Keep your hands flat, firm and broad. You should not push your arm through the water the extent as affixing it and pulling your body above it.
  3. Heavy Rotation: Each stokes starts with your arm and the side of your body pointing at the bottom of the swimming pool. The other side of the body should be lifted with the arm which finished the stroke and ready to get back into the water. In the mean time your other arm pulls the water when you turn your upper body to provide acceleration.
  4. Put your head down: Freestyle swimmers hold their head high. This may force to drop the rest of the body rotating it into a high drag digging. When you keep your head down it helps you cut drag, and keep your upper body high, which may reduce strain on your lower back and neck.
  5. Find your slide lane: Fewer strokes are good when you are swimming in the pool. But, your goal must be high DPS (Distance per Stroke). The Ace swimmers like Phelps can easily swim 25m in just 7 strokes. You can try to swim in below 20 by saving energy. Pull your body above your anchor and keep on swimming forwards with one arm backwards and other one forward. When you feel you are slowing down, then start the next stroke.
  6. Pull your feet: According to Phelps, if you kick well, then you are good swimmer. The secret is rotating your feet into arms. Your legs should be tight and cut through the water, and your feet must be flexible. This will help you break the down stroke for each kick, and help you rotate your torso through the central axis.
  7. Hold your breath: Don’t waste your breath. Gasping for air each time when your put your head near the surface is not a ideal way. Instead, count each breath. Insistently breathe out the air from your lungs before taking full breath quickly on the high side. First time swimmers must breathe after each stroke, but when their stamina increases, they can try taking breath on alternate strokes. It will reduce the strain on your shoulders and neck.
  8. Find your racing structure: Your body structure must be fit for training, when the triathlon race begins, you will forget how to carry out. It happens to every swimmer, once you start swimming, you just want to see other triathletes are doing and how well they are performing. You don’t need to swim fast during the initial stage of triathlon; it can reduce your energy levels, so the best way is to maintain your effectiveness at high intensity.
  9. Find your Sill: Take 5 minutes to warm up, and then take 500m test. Start at a speed where you can clasp for more than 500m and increase gradually so that you can put 90% effort for the last 100m.
  10. Drill bits: Avoid dangers with simple swimming drills, asks your coach about the drill bits and in no time you will become a pro swimmer.

Follow these ten step to became a pro swimmer and improve you triathlon swim. Understanding your weak points and taking help from expert swimmer can help your improve your techniques and help you swim better. Try these ten useful tips and become a ace swimmer in no time.

Below are some of the most useful tips to guide your hiking trip remarkably:

  1. Have early plans and preparations. Consider the area and weather condition when planning to go for a hike. Take preparations such as keeping a small group to minimize impacts and the use of high times for trails should be avoided. Likewise, staying away from shortcuts and walking in one file will prevent the trail and surrounding ecosystems from being harmed.
  2. Travel and find durable surfaces to camp. Resilient grounds such as surfaces with a combination of rock, gravel, sand, dry grass or snow are tough which could hold heavy activities. To avoid widening the trail, walk through puddles or mud.
  3. Proper waste disposal. A good practice in hiking is that you need to pack in what you have packed out to avoid loitering of waste such as food wrappers and other biodegradable trash like banana peelings and the like. “Negative trace’ is likewise a good practice which you have to pick up the rubbish left unattended by others. Catholes should be used to dispose human waste and dug 6-8 inches in soil for an approximate 200 feet distant from any water source. Hygiene products and sanitary papers should be packed out.
  4. Value wildlife. Allow wildlife to live the way they used to be. Remember never to feed them with human food because this act could upset their natural foraging habits. Keep distance away from them and never try to approach them. Pets should be controlled in natural areas and keep them restrained at all times.
  5. Lessen the impacts of campfire. If possible use small camping stoves which are efficient for cooking and will not leave any trace on the site. Allow a small camp fire or if probable go without it. Also, burn only a small diameter of wood on the ground and be aware of fire danger level in the area. Fallen or live trees by no means should be damaged. Ensure that campfire is totally smothered before leaving the campsite.
  6. Do not take what you find. Everything on the hiking site should be for your eyes only and leave it behind. Do not take what you find and let them stay belonged in the wilderness. Prevent yourself from disrupting historic or cultural artifacts, picking plants or moving rocks.
  7. Feel considerate to fellow tourists. Value the rights of other trail users. Show them respect by not making voices or noises intrusively loud. Observe proper trail rules such as right of way. Position your campsites away from trails. Attracting visual impacts should also be minimized by wearing earth colors such as black, brown, tan or green.

With all the useful information above, enjoy the wonders of the outdoors but keep in mind to keep them reserved for the future generation to enjoy as well.

Playing Golf as the People Sports

As long as the Golf is a sport, it is a human activity and as such subject to all the vicissitudes of the soul. But golf is just a sport or is a passion, an addiction, an art, the “joy of living”, an illusion, passivity?

This sport, first played on the moon, played the third in the world after the foot -ball and basketball, practiced by celebrities put in it the most secret of their lives is for many an attractive and peaceful captivity, the sport that can make sense of their weekends and even your entire week.

Golf is a sport that has a profuse and varied history, both in origin and in its development and improvement.

From all this would testify the Etruscan people, which we know had that level of intelligence that characterized not only by its high scientific level and for their art, but also to have discovered the “magic of golf.”

Peoples from around the world play it. Catch both youth and adults and mature. Men and women compete with bat , ball , hole , winds , temperatures , their abilities and disadvantages , their personal factors favorable or discordant , their triumphs and failures , their hopes and their ” fights ” … all within one of the most beautiful landscapes in praise golf is necessarily played. Natural Landscape Company that has an audience that is like none the athlete.

A dignified, respectful, supportive and affectionate audience also feels trapped in the fantastic golf network that gives with open hands.

Multiple factors that are needed must have that person who yearns to play golf. Factors that must be integrated into stable and always active form. Among many others are precision, care, ( both internal and external ) overall perception , perceptual – energy calculation , physical balance body born of a slight distortion, articulated breath, the moment of impact ( due to a high level integration of these factors ) , their overall fitness and finally healthy mental state .

Other factors have to do with their vocation, their learning , their ” holding ” to support the computational error , the alternative introversion, his taste for pleasure, you will, your specific skills , taste so natural, your thoughts , your sportsmanship , your chances of ” desestrezación ” during the ” walk ” from one hole to another to reach the goal. Never end, a sport that bears on whether a scaffold, a constellation of the deepest and dissimilar personality factors.

Longtime and working in clinical psychology applied to sport, I could observe, evaluate and interpret these personality factors integrated into various sports which include golf.

Of course, every person liable to golf in keeping with it’s “back- ground” historical and determined by multiple and original processes of individuation, which must be taken into account when analyzing and interpreting the intimate relationship of an athlete with “their sport “. Both form an indissoluble identity dialectical nature that allow inferring and respect every human being as it is someone unique and unrepeatable in this Universe.

These unique personal characteristics will allow us to approach an “amateur” golfer consultation under “strictly” for his anxiety each “hit”. This feeling impairs their quality of learning. Once states: “I feel at every hit is as a matter of life or death, I cannot know because it is so dramatic.”

Actually I follow all instructions from my teacher and despite this achievement not overcome anxiety. I think something must be linked to something else but I do not notice. “Pablo (fictional name to protect the identity of this person), has a good relationship with your teacher. Paul said, “my father is in many things.”

Paul began learning to play golf that inherited from his parents a house in a country of the province of Buenos Aires where there is a golf course. In his personal history there are many deaths, that of his sister when he was five years old, his mother when he was eight years old, died of an incurable disease and more recently his father in a car accident, the ” inexplicable ” Paul was separated from his wife three years ago according to which (according to his account), she could not get pregnant. At one point they thought they adopt a child, but his wife refused.

Paul says: “Marriage was not achieved “- “my mother did not survive her cancer” – we do not have a child “,” I managed myself not recover from as many hits. “

Those who are used to hearing beyond what we hear, we can with the ease that gives us the experience and theories, realize that in addition to other significant data that served to sustain and build their own ” family romance “, is significant use repeated two words that make up a ” leitmotif ” in his speech: golpe.Hasta achievement and now Paul does not realize his ” crutches “.

As one of the most effective methods for cross ethical human beings is to listen attentively to his words with his last and resonant associations, I wait until Paul “realize that talking. But wait … all pays off. This came a day when Paul said, “I cannot get many hits recover from.” Expresses himself in a flash all suffered losses.

The day we were able to associate their anxiety to these accidents, was a day of glory. Paul says “ah, now I realize my fault … Playing golf …. And they killed that different land uses!! .

His guilt is this naturally unconscious anxiety manifested as psychomotor case prevented him from Logar hit that would allow access to success. For depths succeed to stay alive.

Is this a typical and unique personal situation that sport, of course not any sport, any sport, of course not, serves as a “support ” a psychological structure in which an unresolved emotional conflict is affecting the effective learning of the same .

Here’s an original model on which the golf, glamorously show the intimate relationship with the unconscious affective and ethical values of everyone who plays it.

Of course, as noted above, the golf means for every golfer a particular personal constellation tied to the pleasure that it supports and provides all those who may be located beyond conflict and forming part of his life as a companion inseparable that he should be the purest loyalty.

As suggested in the previous article, write about people who play golf is to write about one of the forms of human passion. Although different INDICATED this the passion according to the internal structures of personality of each player, given that each person responds to the world and herself in particular singled out and form, a common feature golf is the sport mesmerizing exerted on each and every one of those who practice it .

As such, the sport of golf responds to an art form (from the ancient Greek, ” artao ” binding count – etymologically close to the word ” symbol ” throw together) But while it is a sport (from Latin. ” distract them ” escape the work) Thus we may assume that all sports would only pleasure, but this definition will have to book specifically for the “amateur” category, because when the sport is professionally made high group other values , including the liability takes a high level – up the spectrum structure. This sport is also a job. In golf, as in other sports, we find both arts, as pleasure, as the work, while responsibility. In fact, all athletes, and behave a certain quota of both aspects, ordered by the same characteristics of sport and of the practitioner.

Internal and external motivations operating in practice sports talk in the near future. But today … Today we will take care of a personality style that classify as “successful”. Success could be included in one of the many human passions.

Under the particular profile of this original sport, I have considered the need to weigh certain functions that historically characterize its structure. These, could be grouped into:

Neurological – Structure

Muscle – Structure

Emotionally Structure

Affective – Structure

Intellectual structure

Aptitude – Structure

Potentially Structure

Psycho – social – structure

Ethical rules – Structure

All of them certainly deserve particular and careful explanation, that’ll do it another chance. The same will be the basis to articulate, both theoretically and practically, a study of the “golfers “personality, which differs markedly from that of other athletes.

As noted above, each athlete activity deposited in intimate aspects of his personality.

Sport and will be “a sacred place “that will hold in its structure all projections of the people who play.

At this point in our work properly consider, as we talked about personality I propose a definition of the term. To that end, I felt very convenient for our purposes the definition of personality gives us All port

(l986): “Personality is the dynamic organization within the individual of those psychophysical systems that determine his unique adjustments to his environment.”

Terms deserve these particular explanations, which go by in subsequent articles.

Given this definition we approach a person who talks about their problems to achieve “all have continuous success and when he plays.”

Project that it seems impossible, from the start, because when we play anything, even meaningful game of life, we will always win something or we will lose something.

It really shows the scale of gains and losses on all orders of our existence. Knowing lose and gain knowledge requires a continual interplay where experience give us the framework for our quality of life. Why yearn for continued success? , Was the first question I asked Federico (alternate name)? Do you think this is possible? , Was the second. And so on, were the questions each time you were opening a spectrum of historical situations, dreams and projects that shaped the psychological reality of this mature man, father of four, married to a professional and having an economic welfare by attached great importance and that fears losing every moment, because, according to him, ” stay in this country is to have a successful beyond the earth itself.”

“Becoming a better” is the main goal of Federico. To be the best in everything: his marriage, his profession (lawyer), “in the institutions they belong, with my friends “(I ‘m the one who always pays meals, I do not know why).”In every sport I played was always the best,” pointed out the first time we met. The obvious question was: how many sports practiced? A long list is : rowing, tennis , some fencing , karate , duck ( who performed during adolescence ) , soccer , rugby, and some ” minor , such as ping- pong , basketball , hand -ball .”

At this point one may wonder if this is possible and if it would, perhaps, some conspiracy or wishful thinking, or fantasy, or, ultimately, some kind of truth. Of course to be the best in all these sports would be a kind of truth belonging to another dynamic organization. In order to corroborate certain assumptions that psychologists generally set ourselves in our work and serving initially as a guide, we use certain tests , some classic, some contemporary , which help us in our research task ( from the Latin ” investere ” follow the traces ) . One of these tests was that values, the leadership and the highest level were remarkable that Federico was assigned all items that form. These aspects and other “details” extracted from the interviews we allow access the system thought Federico was strongly organized around certain among which stand out , dignity, perfection, hyper moral , the only , the social, prestige, the level of others and self , status . These values allow you bond with your environment too demanding within a configuration, in which all “should be the best quality.” Of course, if some of these factors were not, Federico, devalued or by the situation or place, or grudgingly accepted it or not as necessary for your personal convenience or professionals.

Such a world is usually nearly impossible to find. Human beings are not perfect, but perfectible. A Frederick this idea will definitely “disgusting ” appeared (in his words).

Today admits that “le choice but to play golf.” Moved these values to golf, the sport makes it “impossible” and ” distressing”.

This brings us to another dimension : sport as a place of health. Considering these aspects – which we call “super-ego ” personality Federico, any sport becomes a place of anxiety, helplessness, disgust, of inability. It clarified the term “superego.” Demon superego (from a classic psychology ) , a part of our psychic structure , which are reserved the laws , rules, regulations , prohibitions, which help us to maintain a certain internal and external balance , allowing us to adapt to certain situations pose , as possible or not. Of course this psychic structure is too powerful, will prevent the free performance of our creativity, spontaneity, freedom, etc. Thus showing one extremely formal, highly competitive, hard conceptually rigid personality is not open to change or new information. In general, such individuals are not free to feel the pleasure of a sport, or simply the pleasure of living and plastically in a world of continuous change.

For a person to perform many sports, I think you should either have a privileged physical or have lived several lives, such as time-consuming task.

The question I asked was, but what you actually did all these sports? Federico answered seriously: ” Well, not all, but I know all the rules and regulations governing these sports. I know their structures and the names of almost all the champions. I wonder why the champions only and replies: ” Why only these are worthy of mention.” The word “dignity” echoed in interviews too many times. Federico really is a highly moral person and these values must be revalued in a world like this, on the “debacle” of the century, many significant and profound truths have been lost or at least do not appear as frequently that some people expect. It would be interesting to mention that Federico is the only son of an ex – judge and educated in a rigorous style of religiosity and behaviors controlled and often punished according Federico points out, beyond what is necessary. All “practiced” sports, some in their intellectual fantasy; compensation served the society in which he lived.

If we read well, we see that all the above sports are sports group nature. Team sports with these imaginary companions played Frederick in the long evenings of solitude in his province of southern Spain. With those companions “I always won. It was so I got to golf. With golf not compete with anyone, no one can beat me. With golf I can be perfect. The course allows me to show others who I am. Golf is not a charity for my sport; I am always accompanied by those who admire me. Is golf the brother I never had, or as you once told me (as expressed in a work session), a continuation of a parental mandate? Will golfers are happy? Does it give golf another kind of joy? ”

All these questions make up an organization in which Federico asks “beyond” the same sport. Federico asks about happiness, about joy, about pleasure, about other ways of being, on the origin of some trouble of his life.

Golf, viewed from this angle, you can change the lifestyle of a person who desires and has the resources to be otherwise. And who does not have resources to be otherwise? One can always learn from what this life gives us.

Important Decision in playing Golf as sport and exercise

The basic objective of the sport is to hit the ball on all 18 holes of the course with the fewest strokes possible. Nobody knows for sure how this game came refined.

The main clue points to a primitive version practiced in the Roman Empire, the paganica, where they used a stick to pocket a ball of wool. Have the modern golf only appear in the 15th century in Scotland, from where it spread to the rest of Europe.

Professional circuits today , the count of the score is based on a so-called pair index, which shows the number of strokes set to bring the ball up the field every hole . When we say that a hole is par 3, for example, means that three shots are usually required to pocket the ball.

The sum of the pair of holes in the pair of the field, i.e., the average strokes to complete the circuit. “Besides being a reference to the player, the pair makes it easy to compare the performance of athletes that are in different holes,” says the golfer Roberto Gomes, Brazilian and South American champion.

The players usually practice the sport accompanied by his caddy, a private helper of fundamental importance because, in addition to carrying the clubs, he gives tips on the best strategy to overcome each hole.

In total, about 30 rules governing specific situations of the sport – as the player who hits the ball and the other are punished by two strokes. However, some sports are played with different regulations.

In the game in teams, for example, only considers the number of strokes the player with the best performance in every hole.

Going to hell

To reach the target, you must choose the right clubs and overcome natural obstacles

IMPORTANT DECISION

There are three major types of clubs: the first is the wood or carbon, which has wide end to throw the ball long distances. The second is iron used for shots approaching the hole. The third is called the putter, thinner and light metal, used for precision strikes, already very close to the target.

DIFFICULT TASK

The hole is only 10.8 cm in diameter against the 4.2 cm diameter ball that weighs 45 grams. In the distance a flag helps to visualize the target position on the field. However, when the golfer is about to pocket, it is taken not to disrupt the rally

STICKER RIGID

Golf does not require specific dress code, but good etiquette forbids the use of shorts and tank top shirts. The basic kit includes loose clothing to facilitate handling, shoes with locks to secure your feet on the ground and hat for sun protection.

NATURAL BYPASS

In some holes, strategically placed small forests create a bend between the starting point and the final target. This obstacle forces the change of direction, increasing the difficulty of reaching the hole with a single stroke

SAFE TRACK

The easiest route to get to the hole is called the fairway (“the good way “in English ), where the trimmed grass does not bother your shots. The play is much more difficult if the ball fall into the rough (“rough ” ), a region of rugged terrain and tall grass, usually on the sides of the fairway.

GREEN CARPET

The hole is positioned on the green (“green ” ), an area with perfectly cut grass. Based on the distance between the starting point and the green, we calculate the pair, the index with the average number of strokes for the hole is reached. In par 3 holes, the distance is less than 228 meters, the par 4, between 228 and 430 meters, the par 5, 430 meters more

FLYING MOMENTUM

The initial shot of each hole requires a great swing, body movement that makes the bat throw the ball more than 200 meters. First, golfers adjust the position of the body and the club, to decide the right direction. Then concentrate on the strength of the shot to determine how far the ball should go.

START OF GAME

In the vast field that can hold up to a thousand square miles , each hole has a different starting point , called the tee , the same name given to the wooden or plastic rod to position the ball for the initial movement . The tee is trimmed in a rectangular area of grass

WATER PLANS

Another difficult obstacle to be overcome is the rivers and lakes that cross the golf course. If the ball falls into water, the play resumes at the margin, but the player is penalized one stroke more in your score.

TRAP treacherous

In many holes, sand tanks are positioned near the green to disrupt the lives of those who are about to hit the target. In sand, the biggest challenge is to reach the ball without the stick touches the ground first, which totally deviates from the direction of the hit. Click here for more details.

 

How to get the best Point of Purchase?

The point of purchase is where most of the buying decision is made. This information highlights the importance of point of purchase in the buying process, and consequently the results of the industries that have their products compete daily for space in stores.

The choice of point of purchase is complete relationship with the market segment you want to act, which the audience they want to reach and what market positioning to be perceived by both customers and the competitors. This can affect sales, since they are closely related factors, as potentially the better the location, the greater potential for maximizing sales and brand visibility.

Renata Cianciaruso, Acting Manager of Management Consulting and BDO say the point of purchase is essential to the success of the seller; it is one of the key points for the success of the business. “However, only a good location is not synonymous with success. The important thing is to give the customer what is promised, meet the needs and desires of the customer, be aware of the movement of competitors, establish lasting customer relationships, in addition to knowing your preferences and where possible to differentiate against competitors with best attribute, “he explains.

To Renata, a seller should keep their selling point always clean, organized and attractive to the customer. In addition, you need attentive salespeople who understand how to effectively meet customer needs.

Standardization

The lack of standardization of the brand is a challenge at the point of purchase and a challenge of the brand. “The mark requires standardization so that its attributes are not adulterated. Customers looking for a brand, are seeking elements such as quality, reliability, and wish to repeat a successful experience already experienced in the past. If there is no standardization, the relationship with the client is compromised and the sale is potentially impaired, “adds Renata.

To provide a differential, it is essential to listen and understand the customer. Moreover, knowing deeply competitors by heating what the strengths and weaknesses in relation establishment x competition. Often a weak point of the bidder may be perfect and in order to be understood as a differential in your property.

“The key is to listen to the actual need of the customer, have a well trained and autonomy for the conflict resolution team, and above all fulfill its promise. Ultimately, the ideal is to do the homework in the best possible way. “Says Renate.

Be where the customer is Rafael D’Andrea, vice president of the POPAI Brazil Agencies Committee, the selling point is essential, even if it is on the internet you need to have a reference of where the brand is. “First you have to be at the point of purchase and not lose the customer at any stage of the purchase decision process: the initial attention, the interest on the product, handling or experience in rational decision and the payment itself” clarifies.

D’Andrea said to be present at the point of purchase displays means offering the shopper (consumer) of your brand the opportunity to bond with her and get it if you want. The choice of point of purchase is made by the consumer and the product must be where he is. Your brand must be present at the point of purchase where shoppers of your product or category will.

“My main tip is that brands must consider all possibilities customer contact with your brand and potential consumers to the brand in their communications planning and sales seamlessly. The shopper marketing is a discipline that seeks to reconcile these fields with the interests of consumers at the center of decisions. That way you can create a win-win atmosphere genuine in jail – something critical to the success of modern seller.

Tips for Point of Purchase

It is through the execution of Merchandising the products stand out and differentiate the point of purchase. And attract the shopper to seek more than their competitor’s products; we must always be alert to some key points:

Presence of products in the area of Sales, i.e. no use the product to be distributed in a certain POV and not available on the sales floor to be picked and purchased;

Positioning of products in the gondola area, you must follow pre-established criteria of exposure, according to the strategy defined return to the category in question;

Price of the product is suitable for the perceived value of the product and be clearly visible and exposed to the eyes of the shopper, to facilitate your decision making process;

POP material is being used correctly, assisting in the dissemination of the product in question and not “polluting” Visually the store;

Extra-point must always be well exploited, because there is always an alternative to impact the shopper in the store, that is not the primary point (gondola) used for the category.

Point of Purchase Promotional Events

In recent years we have witnessed a trend of buying on impulse and based on what is the most delicious at the point of purchase. Several studies have said that the vast majority of consumers taking their buying decisions at the point of purchase and them often end up buying products that they had no intention of buying.

As the market for consumer goods that where you can perform more promotional actions, not only by the visibility and knowledge of brands, but also by the volatility that the products have, it is essential to expose the brand and the product of original shape, creating a series promotional activities around them, so that they stand out from their competition.

On the other hand, for large retailers, the competition for the best and best linear shelf space is very strong and this same space is becoming smaller and more expensive. Thus, the importance of merchandising and actions to improve product visibility becomes vital.

One of the most common actions in terms of promotion is the Sampling. This action is based on evidence and tasting the product concerned, which allows you to collect immediate feedback from consumers at the point of purchase and, more importantly, allows the customer to consider buying the product over other similar that it intended to acquire.

Other promotional activities used at the point of purchase are delivering flyers or other advertising material that aims to encourage the sale of the product concerned. It is also common to offer gifts that aim to attract the attention of consumers to the product and point of purchase.

In our current market, consumers are increasingly demanding the purchases they make and even get to rationalize that purchase these products, so promotion measures should be eye-catching, engaging and building trust in customers, in order to create a relationship Nice and combine pleasure to the act of purchase.

There are many advantages that manufacturers can take the promotional actions they perform, such as advertising the product or brand through direct exposure of logos, slogans, exhibitors, stoppers or banners. On the other hand, it is possible to communicate the brand or product to tens or hundreds of thousands of people in itself and where people already go with the intention of purchasing the products space. If we combine this action of sampling (already mentioned) it is possible to earn customer preference.

In addition to everything mentioned, it is fundamental to have the right person at the right point of purchase for the promotional campaign is successful.

What we have seen is some de professionalization regarding promoters that are ahead of each product or brand, with little knowledge of the manufacturer, the product in question and, above all, the lack of favorable arguments before the competition, pricing, among other things, leading the consumer to not have doubts to purchase that product. In short, the guidance to the client’s need is paramount.

In this sector there have been an increasing number of companies that promote this type of service, which can lead to market saturation. This saturation leads to an increase in bargaining power on the part of customers, leading to a loss of margins and hence profit by companies providing this type of service. This loss of profit margins and consequently leads to lower quality of promotional materials.

It is, therefore, critical that the relationship between retailers and manufacturers is the best possible for both one and the other may see an increase in sales and a profit in your business.

Moreover, the promoters who are ahead of these promotional activities must be trained and oriented to the type of client that will receive and that will approach, so as to be able to speak of competition, arguing pros and cons people in short, to speak of the global fashion market. – Wikipedia

Finally, the type of company chosen to promote the services of merchandising must have a specialization in the core business of the customer and become a partner of the manufacturer at the time to communicate and promote their products or brands.

They can be invaluable to our stress levels. It is essential that we plan every day activity. But if you would like to avoid adding instead of taking away your stress levels then you should have a main objective and some other secondary one for each day. But you have to leave the hotel room for surprises, be open for a change of plans, and also to some boredom.

If the ultimate goal of the holiday is to relax, not always be lying in the sun or on a sofa is the best way to get it. If we feel physically tired, it’s okay sleep more and us to reduce physical activity during the first three days. But then it’s good for psychological disconnection of performing tasks.

The internet has even come to change people’s lives, and the benefits offered by it go beyond simply letting the user choose which channels they want to make use of interaction, it is possible to not only “travel ” virtually, but also use it in favor of projects in various sectors, including travel, now speaking tourist travel in the direction of the word. But using the internet combined with some physical marketing attributes like LED light flashers to enhance the visibility of your destination, is truly where the travel industry is going.

Choosing Your Best Travel Destination

Given the benefits offered by the internet, is increasingly growing number of people using this medium to choose the best destinations when traveling, and although Google is a great tool for these purposes, there are sites geared specifically to the area of tourism that much help at the time of decision making, and it is these who will talk about in this article.

Trip- Advisor

This is perhaps the best place to start searching for a perfect script for the next trip, the site offers plus reviews of travelers worldwide, exclusive tools price comparison on stays at hotels recommended by tourists, as well as integration with partner sites that perform searches for values airfare recommended price for the trip . Overall, the site is very simple to find the sights of each location chosen, containing in most cases even photos of the regions, something that helps a lot in making decisions.

Tim thumb

Booking is one of the partners of the Trip advisor and provides reviews of the best hotels following our own assessments, recommendations usually provide pictures of the hotels, as well as comments from tourists who have stayed in place, and it becomes much simpler to task of choosing a good location for our travel.

Traveling with luggage

Whenever we are about to start a journey that seems impossible to pack away and usually leave everything to the last minute, we’re not sure that we should take things, if we carry or we use and, moreover, everything we believe is essential not enter and finish packing and unpacking many times the same suitcase. This is aside from the fear of having exceeded the maximum weight allowed by the airline and the big question is not whether any particular object is allowed or is prohibited by airline standards.

This is a common topic among travelers, the eternal problem: if we make the bags a few days before the fair ended up needing it now and keep it at the last minute certainly make us forget to take something we had to take, so after several reviews I think one of the most efficient ways to pack and not die trying is to make a list of all the things necessary for our much desired trip and if possible, bring an empty suitcase case will go back over the things that we take the famous souvenirs for family and friends.

Once this task we drove to the airport and there we see that most of the bags are equal and the fear of losing our luggage begins to invade us because even though you do not believe me, it happens often, so ideal in these cases is put a tape with some color on the handle and of course, our personal data so that the results easier to differentiate it from so many.

Some tips for the distribution of clothes inside the suitcase is put on the bottom slacks and then the shirts and blouses , shoes or sneakers try to accommodate them in the spaces between the clothes as well as belts , accessories and underwear. Before closing the suitcase, on top of everything, the clothes will most delicate, lastly, towels and cold.

If your trip is business ideally suits take on a “suit bag” and take it with you on the plane, this ensures that fails to reach the destination as if it had been the victim of a dog, but if you have to take several shirts. Another alternative is to roll them as carefully as possible and accommodate them on the sides of the bag.

At the airport

The best tip I can give is that a few days before traveling call your airline and see the free baggage allowance, do not forget that if you exceed the maximum weight will have to pay extra for excess baggage and only be carried if there is enough room in the basement.

Normally airlines allow between 20 and 30 pounds of luggage per adult and 10 pounds for hand luggage which is the only one you can take with you, this hand luggage must not exceed the maximum dimensions (50 x 35 x 23 cm) and can only take one per passenger. The less stuff you bring will ease the task of security personnel register it without the hassle of delays.

Among the objects that are not allowed to enter the plane elements are sharp (scissors, files, razors and any other blunt), lighters or matches, all kinds of liquids is hair gel, drinks, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, toothpaste, cosmetic brand items and deodorants. Also prohibited are all kinds of liquid, “except the milk”. What can you carry in your hand luggage are medicines, documents and money.

Remember that you will not have your bags to your destination.

Regarding special items like golf equipment, skis, bikes or surfboards snowboard depends on each company and country the system packaging, and shipping costs that are charged to the tourist.

Another important factor to be considered is the lock that we will use to close the suitcase: a lock combinations is a good option as long as your memory is good and we will not forget the key if this is not your case, you should opt for a lock and key, but remember that according to the new rules in the U.S. Transportation Security Administration “TSA” randomly choose some bags to be inspected and if they cannot open the lock broken. Therefore it is advisable to use padlocks approved “TSA”, so the security officers may open the bag using a universal code used exclusively for these particular cases.

Anyway, remember that the journey is to rest of the routine and not to come back more tired, so it’s up to the minimum plan details several days before departure and guarantee you will be surprised at how simple it can become. We leave here one of the most important tips: Before you travel, make sure to hire your travel insurance. Please contact us and our advisors will help you choose the best option is safe. – about

Best Tips To Find Cheap Flights Online

They look like a myth, but there: is cheap Internet. The met search Liligo offers some tips to find these bargains Network and traveling at a reduced price.

Trying to find a cheap flight to Spain for the weekend. But heard this morning that EasyJet apply an algorithm to searches which remembers prices you last looked at, and bases new searches around that. Not the actual cheapest seat. So super suspicious at

 

How do people get to fly to Paris for 20 Euro or New York for 300? In many cases it is as simple as knowing where to look for these flights. The online travel market in Spain is one of the most saturated of Europe and this sometimes causes users to invest too much time visiting different websites to find the best flight. In the U.S., 70 % of sales through Internet of tourism products are made through met search. These websites with search engines in turn seek hundreds of websites. In this way the individual concerned who compares himself the one you are interested in and have direct access to it. The met search Liligo.com week offered a workshop for journalists in the sector in which they were given the keys to finding the cheapest flights on the internet. Of all the tips and tricks, we highlight the following: Direct flights + Regular Low Cost vs. Imagine that we want to fly from Barcelona to Santiago de Chile. Typically would put these two cities as departure and arrival in finding tickets, knowing that we will have to stop in Madrid because there are no direct flights between the two cities. You can save money by purchasing a low cost flight from Barcelona to Madrid and then regulate Madrid – Santiago de Chile. This also happens with flights to the U.S. calling at European cities like London or Paris. Combined low cost. We spend a long weekend in Berlin, a city flying several low cost airlines. Sometimes you can save money by buying the outbound flight with a company and back with another. Buy in advance. According Liligo, the cheapest flights are around three months before the departure. That is, if we know in advance that we want to take a trip, it is better not to wait for last minute deals and buy about three months in advance. Alerts suppose that at the beginning of the year we know where we want to spend the summer holidays but obviously do not have time each week to go checking the price of airline tickets for when buying. The best in these cases is creating us alerts to inform us when they lower the ticket prices to the particular destination where we want to go. Use met search. The met search engines are the key to finding the best price as quickly. In addition, accessing these engines is not only looking at the websites that you know but in many others which ignore its existence but may have the most competitive prices. Set the price, not the destination. If the only thing clear is that you want to spend the next break in a European destination without spending more than 60 Euros on the ticket you can find destinations and flights at that price. Buy two return tickets. Many times it happens that for certain dates and destinations are cheaper to buy two return tickets to buy one round trip. The best example is because a flight is Monday through Friday in the same week. If you stay on Saturday night at the destination many companies consider that flight as business at very high prices. In this way, sometimes it is cheaper to buy two round trip including Saturday night Seize the opening of new routes. When airlines open new routes generally do offer tickets at cost until the route is sufficiently known. Identify the dates of the year that is cheaper to fly. For example, in summer is usually much cheaper to fly to Morocco and North Africa because many people avoid these destinations by heat. The same applies to local holidays; it is always cheaper to fly on a bridge that is local party when national holiday.

Communities, forums and travel blogs

 

When we are thinking about making a short break or a longer trip, we are guided primarily by experience and advice from others. This is not new. Always the recommendation of a friend was a point in favor of that doctor, hotel or restaurant suggested. What has changed is that now thanks to the internet has expanded to infinity that group of “friends” who hear.

 

Traveler communities as Minube, for example, are a huge source of inspiration and advice. Members share their travel experiences and data that provide help to the organization of our own journey. Today, these communities also have their own flight and hotel search engines where to find deals, so that we have a way to budget (and buy) the journey that we in mind.

 

Forums such as Travelers, for example, are that great coffee table where raised our concerns to our friends and they tell us their experience, advising. Both sides ask and answer from your own experience, and so the information flows to those who need it. Today, we find there service advertising operators and even its own search engine.

 

In the case of travel blogs find a wide variety of options. From the most intimate and personal where you share a trip point in detail, to those that include many issues and tips that may be useful to a much more global audience. In many travel blogs include advertising banners operators, airlines or tour services and links to search engines to realize this trip that inspired the blog content.

 

Searchers

 

I mentioned a couple of times the word “search” What is it? Just as there are websites where comparing the price of insurance for the car, for example, these search engines serve as comparators between different companies offer.

 

The clearest case is that of flight search engines. From a single internet address can see what we offer various airlines for a particular section on a specific date, rather than wander around the various possibilities.

 

Search engines are designed to assist us in finding the best price to buy it. Even, every day we offer more possibilities such as choosing the travel destination for cheap from our city as in the case of Cheap Flights. Nothing is easier to say: I leave the airport … where are offered the lowest rates? Ideal for those who are guided by the price and are tempted by all kinds of destinations.

 

Other search engines, flight to the consultation on a one way trip, add a tool that makes easier the task of organizing a route with several stops. Such is the case Kayak and multipath search. And other search engines that are more intuitive guiding those seeking a special trip type, by its nature or style of experience. Seeking a trip is one in which the search begins by defining what kind of trip you want to live.

 

Many flight search engines also include other services such as hotels, cruises, train tickets, car hire. At Liligo mentioned you could add XYO Cruises. The latter has an interesting option that allows us to choose a cruise based on our personal taste and experience that we want to live aboard. And in our pockets, of course.

Operators and travel agencies online

 

Traditional travel agencies have been and are very important professional support for many travelers. Travelers who use the Internet for travel arrangements can find a similar model operators and online agencies.  Best travel tips

 

In this case, the services offered cover all possibilities, including programs and outings organized by groups and special offers. This is an interesting point to consider because for the general, these channels have special discounts for volume sales that translate into very competitive prices on certain products.

 

Here we find names such as Rumba, eDreams or Falcon Travel, among others.

When Traveling, The Actual Destination Isn’t Generally Important

Traveling in itself is a pleasure. For me perhaps it is the greatest pleasure. I keep finding cases and listen to people and discredit the fact of traveling talking about the importance of the destination, ignoring the really important part of a trip.

I understand that visiting Thailand, travel around Argentina from Buenos Aires to Patagonia or around Iceland enjoying some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world is very attractive, but we cannot forget that travel far beyond the fate of the wonderful places that hides our planet and the exotic name of the place we visited.

Traveling is a complete experience, ranging from companionship you can show to those who are with you, until you learn about the simple things around you. It is precisely the latter that I personally full of travel. When in my daily life I enjoy with my friends, I do it in a controlled environment in which we know well, but the situation changes when we travel. Smiling, enjoy and be happy next to the people we want on a trip is a way to discover that every day we are surrounded by one of the most important gifts anyone can receive, and it does not matter where.

A few weeks ago I visited with some of my best friends, a place much less likely to call my attention to Chichen Itza in Mexico or Petra in Jordan, but where I turned myself to remember the importance of being surrounded by the people, something which unfortunately forget the routine of our lives.

Finally I want to clarify that I am not advocating some destinations over others, just trying to remember that traveling is an experience far superior to where we’re going, and includes such important things like friendship, trust and love.
