When you buy a gas station or convenience store, don’t just settle down and expect to blend in to the business landscape and get clients just because “you are there”. Don’t rely on the status quo and expect customers to come and go on a daily basis. You need to employ some aggressive marketing techniques to help you compete and defeat all your competitors, even the supposedly dominant oil company owned stations. Be proactive and make something out of your new acquisition – you will be proud of yourself if you do.

Turn to the marketing basics and play your own twists:

Firstly, make sure that you differentiate. Take a tour of your general area and visit all the other gas stations and convenience stores. Look to see what they are doing from a marketing perspective and take good notes. When you return to your place of business, start offering something special that they don’t. Differentiate your business by, for example, opening longer hours or by presenting your location as a brighter and cleaner option. Pick out a distinctive uniform for your employees and make sure that you train them well so that they enthusiastically greet every visitor.

Come up with a list of promotions and prizes to stage periodically, coupons too. One of the staples of a gas station is its morning coffee – provide a great flavor and stimulate your visitor taste buds! Stock your store with a wider selection of items and make sure that you give certain things away free – including air, water and vacuum.

Secondly, communicate! Don’t be shy and make sure that you tell your customers that you have the best gas station and convenience store in the area. Once you have identified your core customer and found out all about their habits, initiate promotional campaigns within the media channels that will reach them directly; for instance, put discount coupons in grocery stores. Make sure that your communication methods are consistent – keep selling. From time to time open your facility to a worthy charity – for example, those car washes staged by the local softball team.

Thirdly, make sure you integrate well into the surrounding community. Look for opportunities to sponsor a local sports team or a popular cause. Get involved in cleaning up an eyesore, such as a neglected local park. Consider funding a college scholarship or co-promote with the merchants in your area to help improve the business climate. Whatever you do, make sure that you send information about it to the local media so they will promote you free of charge. As you will pretty much always get coverage if newsworthy, go out of your way to generate those “feel good” activities and the press will help you out with column inches and radio sound bites.

There’s no such thing as a small business, only business people who think small!

Participate in the annual autumn mackerel fishing season has ended. Flood lights around the year catchable fish since fish never sees participation Flourishing mackerel. Catch 5 tons, 10 tons of net production is extremely lucky, that in previous years, even 20 tons 30 tons 50 tons a web has become a good memory. Mackerel fish flood season has been difficult to participate in the formation of grim facts placed in front of people.

It is understood that this year, 12 sets of lights in Xiangshan County, Zhejiang fishing vessels by the end of June around catchable, because of bad sea conditions of production as early as the end of August to stop clamoring. Similarly, known as “lights around town,” said group of lights around Zhoushan Putuo 275 ship production efficiency is less than satisfactory, worse than the previous year. So, this year’s exactly where the fish mackerel parameters gone?

According to the source and the oldest of the fishermen, this year’s weather, sea conditions were normal, but the flood lights around the fish production is not ideal, the reasons are manifold. First, the summer heat early this year, but the sea surface water temperature is about 1 lower than the previous year is not conducive to the production of fish, mackerel and participate in the formation of fishing season. Second, high-priced diesel fuel. To save production costs, explore the center of the fishermen to give up fishing, concentration and other effective methods of fishing, but the rule of thumb, with the feeling, stick to the traditional fishing luck. Third, destruction of illegal trawl fisheries resources affected the lights around the flood season this year, mackerel fish resources in place volume of participation.

In recent years, with the decline of traditional fish resources and work space narrowing, development of light-seine fishermen’s summer closed fishing on adjusting the industrial structure, an important way to increase revenue, in most coastal fishing zones are restored and developed a light-seine operation. Thus, when the bottom was briefly able to rehabilitate fish stocks, the Floating Life pelagic fish became the object of people’s pursuit of hunting, then the reference fish mackerel is also doomed. When the use of marine fishery resources beyond the capacity of renewable fish resources, fishing boats as the conflict began more than a small fish horizon. All this makes reference fish mackerel difficult to form the flood season.

China from the 1995 East China Sea, Yellow Sea and South China Sea fishing moratorium in the system to implement the three sea areas, achieving notable results. To this end, Xiangshan fishermen fishing moratorium in advance again, and the proposed extension of time, about 1 month fishing moratorium in the time ahead, from a year at 12 o’clock on the May 16 to at 12 o’clock on the September 16 round fishing moratorium. Because, every year in September, October is the best fishing period in May each year shall be low-yielding and juvenile growth stage of. Fishing moratorium extension and early protection of major economic benefit from the source, protection of fish breeding juvenile pelagic fish resources, is conducive to sustainable development of fisheries around light. Similarly, Zhoushan City, Zhejiang Ocean and Fishery Bureau of Investigation in the fishing village, the survey, fishermen, fishing moratorium is also a strong call for greater efforts.

Extended Leadership Experience-North Texas, Dallas First Unitarian session 4
Event on 2017-04-01 09:30:00
For the last decade, the Southern Region has been offering the Dwight Brown Leadership Experience. Six years ago, DBLE's sister school, The Southern Unitarian Universalist Leadership Experience (SUULE) was created as a compliment to DBLE in the eastern half of the Region. Congregations that send teams of leaders to these events year after year consistently report the following:  They see a great change in the abilities of their leaders. Their Leadership Experience Graduates are more grounded, centered, and prepared for leadership.  Congregations and Leaders are better connected to the larger Faith after attending a Leadership Experience. They know they are not alone and that they have support in their holy work.   Congregations and Leaders are equipped to handle conflicts in a better way, and they are quicker to ask for help before things get out of hand.  Coupled with the great success of our Leadership Experiences, we have also seen some drawbacks. One drawback to the way we have been offering this deeply experiential learning opportunity is that it happens intensely and all at once, in a short five day event. This offers little time for reflection, experimentation with the tools, or time for the kind of struggle it takes to come to deeper awareness. In addition, the experience can be overwhelming for some and impossible for others, due to health reasons or family concerns. The Southern Region Staff has also heard feedback from congregations explaining that there is a great cost associated with sending a team to DBLE, and many congregations are entering difficult financial times. Finally, taking a week away from work and family obligations is not possible for all leaders, making the current Leadership Experiences not entirely accessible. Building on the success of DBLE and SUULE, the Southern Region Staff of the Unitarian Universalist Association invites the North Texas Unitarian Universalist Congregations to an Extended Leadership Experience. During the registration for the first workshop in the series there is the opportunity to register for all 4 workshops and receive a discount for the series.  Childcare must be reserved by March 27, 2017. Cancellation and refund policies:  All cancellation notices/refund requests must be made by reply to your confirmation email or by contacting us through the event listing prior to the business day before the program/event begins. We may take up to 4 business days to evaluate your refund request. We are unable to issue any refund for no-shows or for cancellation requests received after the date we are obligated to pay our host site (date varies by event). Generally, if you cancel your registration with sufficient notice, you may receive a partial refund of your registration costs. We will retain to cover administrative costs for cancellations up to 30 days prior to the event, or 0 to cover administrative costs up to 14 days prior to the event. For Leadership Experiences, the 0 per participant deposit is non-refundable (but can be transferred to another accepted nominee from the same congregation for the same class). Event cancellation: the Southern Region staff cancels events with low registration. Registration fees are refunded in full when events do not have enough registrations to cover event costs.
