Boom Marketing Explores First Impressions
You know how important it is to make a good first impression, especially in professional settings. Whether it’s at a conference, a networking event, or a party, you never know when a new contact might lead you to amazing opportunities. We at Boom Marketing believe that you learn a lot about a person during the first three minutes you spend with him or her, including the following essential details:
• What They Do (and How Much They Like It): What people do isn’t quite as important as how enthusiastically they tell you what they do. In other words, you will find out very quickly whether a person is content in his or her job or ready to move on to something else.
• Shared Interests: Your conversation with a new contact will inevitably spread to interests outside of work. This is where we at Boom Marketing believe most strong connections really begin to take shape. You can build trust faster when you know that you and your new connection share some common passions.
• How to Build a Relationship: Whether you see the person as a friend or partner, you will quickly learn what the next step in your relationship should be. That next step might be a formal proposal or a discussion over coffee, but you’ll feel more confident in either case after your initial conversation.
Our team at Boom Marketing encourages you to strive toward strong first impressions in all settings.

Boom Marketing: Find Potential Managers
You might think the only way to identify future managers is to observe their performances in a variety of situations over long periods of time. We at Boom Marketing believe you can actually single out potential leaders through some strategic interview questions. Here are a few things you should ask about if you want to gauge leadership abilities.
Begin by asking whether a candidate is more proud of individual achievements or those that involve contributions from an entire team. The best future managers know that leveraging team skills toward big wins is the preferred approach. This can also be evaluated by finding out if the person has taken on progressively more important roles in large-scale projects.
You can also ask for instances in which a candidate has coached peers to great success. We at Boom Marketing believe this is a key ability shared by the best leaders, so if you receive a long list of coached colleagues, you’ll know you’ve found a future manager.
Another good way to judge a person’s leadership potential is to ask how he or she would handle the most complex management challenge you currently face. From there, you can find out how the candidate handled similar situations in a previous position. Try to learn as much as you can about how the person planned and executed his or her response.
We at Boom Marketing believe you can identify future managers if you just ask the right questions.
Changing the way you think and adding a few key habits can help you get back the motivation that you lost somewhere along the way.

PRESS RELEASE : Boom Marketing Plans for a Successful 2016
FAIRFAX, VA – The President of Boom Marketing detailed the team’s goals for 2016 and her own resolutions for a successful year. She also discussed the company’s ongoing hiring initiative.
“Here at Boom Marketing, we are focused on making 2016 a year to remember,” said Whitney, the firm’s President. “We have our sights set on expansion into major new markets, and we have also set high benchmarks for revenues. This is going to be a record-breaking year for our company and for the dynamic brands we represent.”
An emphasis on goal setting pervades the culture at Boom Marketing. The President explained, “We have always understood the importance of chasing ambitious objectives. Even if things are going well, it’s never a good idea to maintain the status quo. In our competitive industry, doing so is a recipe for irrelevance.”
Whitney has made some simple resolutions that she believes will help make 2016 a breakthrough year for Boom Marketing. She explained, “For one thing, I have committed to making planning a more routine occurrence in 2016. On a weekly basis, we will come together to evaluate progress and make adjustments to our processes and strategies. We will address short-term concerns and plan for long-range contingencies without waiting for something to force our hands.”
The President has also resolved to focus on one important task at a time in 2016, and she is encouraging her team members to do the same. “Multitasking is just asking for trouble,” Whitney added. “All it really does is spread your focus across too many things, which leads to mediocre results across the board. Rather than fall into that trap, we at Boom Marketing are going to direct our efforts to one task at a time throughout the coming year. The people behind the brands we represent will notice the difference.”
Boom Marketing’s President Elaborates on Current Hiring Push
To make their goals for 2016 realistic and achievable, Whitney and the other leaders at Boom Marketing know they need to add talent to their already exceptional team. “We will need more people to help open new locations and reach new customers,” the President noted. “The first quarter of 2016 will see quite a few additions to our group of marketing professionals.”
Company leaders will be working to identify candidates who embody the company’s core values. Whitney commented, “We are looking for business-minded individuals who are ready to commit to improving on a daily basis. Any addition to our team must also be a strong collaborator and bring a genuine sense of passion for our industry.”

Boom Marketing: Great Leaders Tell Great Stories
Many qualities come together to create effective business leaders, but we at Boom Marketing have noticed that the best frontrunners tend to be great storytellers. Whether they need to inspire others to better performance or win new business for their companies, elite leaders know how to create and relate engaging narratives. If you want to emulate these talented executives, our team at Boom Marketing suggests having these story frameworks at your disposal:
• Your Origin Story: You need to be able to explain why you got into your line of work and how you plan to achieve greater success in the future. When you can describe the meaning behind your methods, you will attract people to support your cause.
• Where You Stand: Whether it’s your own philosophy or that of your firm, you need to effectively communicate where you stand on key issues. Tell customers and business partners how your worldview informs the unique value you and your company can provide.
• Testimonials: If you can share stories of how you have impacted people’s lives, you can describe your achievements in a selfless way. Rather than listing the things you have accomplished, focus on the concrete improvements you have brought about for your team members, customers, and partners.
If you want to become a respected and effective leader, we at Boom Marketing suggest finding unique ways to tell these types of stories.

Boom Marketing Helps You Get Past Worries
If you’re an ambitious professional, we at Boom Marketing know it can be tough to let go of nagging worries and just live for the moment. However, we have learned some tips from Warren Buffett that will help you overcome your stress and stop worrying so much. Buffett’s strategies actually come from Dale Carnegie’s “How to Stop Worrying and Start Living,” and we would like to share a few of them with you here.
The first step toward defeating your anxieties is isolating the problems that are causing them. Whether your concerns emanate from your finances, relationships, or professional pursuits, find ways to keep them separate, because the last thing you need is to have a problem from one aspect of your life spill into another.
You must also prepare yourself for the worst possible outcome that might result from the problem at hand. If you can make peace with the worst-case scenario, we at Boom Marketing believe you will have eliminated any reason to worry. From there, you can actually begin to make a plan for how you can create a better outcome.
Once you make a decision as to how you can mitigate the problem you’re facing, you need to take action quickly, because it will help you immediately reduce the level of worry that you feel. After you have done everything you can to overcome the issue, do your best to move on to other priorities.
We at Boom Marketing hope Warren Buffett’s tips for getting past worries prove effective for you.

Boom Marketing: Use Social Media Sparingly
It’s no secret that the pull of social media leads to hours upon hours of wasted time. Busy, ambitious professionals don’t have that much time to spare – even on their social media marketing and management. This problem is amplified by all the other ways people miss out on the productive use of time. We at Boom Marketing have noticed that these circumstances are often out of their control. Doctors’ waiting rooms are gigantic black holes where time is lost, for instance, as are daily traffic clusters.
So much lost time leads to lost money and happiness. Although it’s not possible to strategically manage every moment of the day, it’s certainly doable to use social media cautiously. At Boom Marketing, we have learned that it all begins with an organized plan. Developing daily to-do lists with prioritized tasks is a great way to get started.
Tammy Cho of Encore Alert, a social media monitoring firm, also has helpful insights. She indicates, “Rather than responding to every single tweet that comes your way, it’s important to prioritize the five to 10 conversations per day that will make the most impact for your business…Technology exists to empower humans to make the final, smartest decision possible. Instead of spending valuable time manually reading through feeds of tweets, posts and industry content to post, automate this process.”
Our team members at Boom Marketing ask, how do you save time with regard to social media use?
