Live Life Lovingly!


Dance?

Why learn to dance?

Because it eases you out of yourself .

Sometimes in the throes of life and living

A tough hand is dealt with

And as you fumble through

You realize how constricted you are

Your sense of being is somewhat lost

Your funny bone misplaced

You forget to live life

And your moments start to matter less

Life feels drab

Your body feels dense

Your movements drag

And your thoughts feel dull.

In these moments where life is truly trying …

It’s great to give dance a try.

Consider trying to move from where you are

Step up a little and rock a bit

Feel the swing in your heart beats

And sense your spirits soar

Dance on and step to the tunes of life

And who knows?

You find, you love life all over again.

Touching the nerve of truth

Touching the nerve of truth
It is not an easy task to confront
Cause to confront is to be ready for conflict
Be it any kind…
From mental social or physical and more
Conflicts are always unwanted.

But change is the only constant

And life moves on creating itself.

In any art and creative endeavour
Say even speaking & writing for that matter, there is much scope for influences and perceptions.

It is the nature of truth to transform
But not without chaos and confusion
Such is the nature of human frailty.

There in lies the strength of human spirit. (Contd)

When life imitates Art

The path of art is open to interpretation.Creativity persay is a birthing process. It can be extremely exhausting and exhilarating at the same time.

The creator is bearing the brunt of creativity just as much as the beauty of it all.
Creativity is challenging and comforting.
It can box then unbox you as an artist.

When creativity churns out art it opens itself to perspectives and dimensions of reflections.
Art appears in all its magnificence from the
seemingly endearing and enchanting…
It has its influences on the heart and mind of the audience as much as the artist.
Art may then touch upon the purpose of artistry.
Or it may completely stay undermined and undiscovered.

Yet the truth is Art has far reaching potential and the artist is capable of inspiring or influencing through his creation.And the same art can transform or trick the mind.

Every creation has a time frame that goes along ,
Sometimes the creation is self destructive.
Or at times creation may become redundant in time and fade away
Yet there are cases of creative expression where interpretations leave imprints in the human consciousness forever.

Art has an unique capacity to transform the psyche of understanding.
Art reflects life and at times life reflects art.Savvy


Unbox & Connect the dots.

Buyer seller: A partnership plan.

Subscription model successes and failures are a well known story in almost many of the leading buisness enterprises ranging from entertainment to ecommerce & healthcare sectors. But often companies are flummoxed when it comes to retaining their existing subscription box model in time . It is certainly a challenge to keep it going!

Why they work in the first place?

They may work if there is value and convenience to the customers. And for the company if there is revenue generation through repeat sales.

Here is where intelligent pricing matters. ( ensure it feels like a good and worthy bundle for the price of one from the Customers perspective.)

Here are a few suggestions from a company perspective on reworking the Box model.

Work on building a long term relationship with existing customers.

Chalk a customer centric approach.

At times the surprise element can backfire .

Call and build the awareness of the products and its USP beforehand..

Use the Customers who are satisfied for referrals socially.

Innovations in service and delivery can help.

Let the Customers know the products are service oriented and not sales oriented.It charges their emotions towards a sale.

Companies perhaps offer treats tickets offline events and give some coupons freebies or opportunities for them to be brand loyal.

Work on building a community of people who get a product to try at a discount or offer a discounted first month price.Will be great chance to understand market demand.

Increase the customers perception of utility of the products by creating greater awareness.

When an online purchase is done
Offer a subscription box at the point of sale with an offer and an explanation of how the company is doing good for the world at large.

But remember
User growth may eventually decline in the case of predictive products.

Keep it fresh and interesting.

Make sure to check complacency from employees once the monthly boxes are shipped . As a company be genuinely interested to know if the box is making a positive difference to the customer. Insert a survey link or feedback suggestions for improving the service.

Initially the Custumers often start off wanting to exact the full value of the price paid in terms of the products or services. Like fitness subscriptions and then there is a waning interest unless the customer is kept engaged.

One of the proven flaws of the model is that it is suitable for certain Buisness and not for others. Like it may work where there is a service or product that is needed continuously but not for once in awhile kind of demand products.

With too many entrants and the overkill that is visibly overwhelming to customers
Buisness models often need to keep improving their presentation, content,services and products and try exceeding the expectations of theirs registered clients for retention. In an extremely competitive market scenario this is can be a double edged sword.

There may also be waning interest of existing subscribers due to a perceived lack of control over the products delivered to them.

Financially is it viable?

This is necessary question that a business must consider from time to time.

As in time the user may prefer to choose between models that offer other likewise or similar category products.
And prefer only one among many such models after evaluating the benefits.

While every individual is different,
Customers may find the company idea of piecemealing or compiling all together redundant and may prefer to buy one off product that they actually need.
As simply sending something to a person continously may make the product less wanted or needed in time.

With too many subscription models in the market, Customers cannot be conned as they are aware of the gameplan due to existing and already functional models
So the ‘why the model is good to buy’ is important to seller to know and convey to the client always.

Time to rethink and unbox to connect the dots.

On Interconnectedness

The strength of the interconnects run deeper than we can fathom.

We are much more interweaved and interdependent than we realise.

And the sooner we realize how much we need to coexist, the better we will be.
