Many not-for-profits are always looking for ways to publicize their organization and bring in monetary donations. Work with Marie at Business BEactive to plan your event, today! Don’t think that you cannot afford to hire a consultant. Business BEactive is a huge supporter of not-for-profit organization and will often provide services at little or no cost to your organization. Here are some ideas to get the brain-juices, flowing: Involve the children- Do not ignore children, because they have power to influence parents and donors. Children have a way of hyping up peer influence which is good for business. Let children participate in a show or other event, and parents will turn out in waves to help the cause and support their children.. Host a street carnival- Get a bouncing castle onto the street complete rented with music or band. Allow people to play games for small amounts of money and charge an entry fee. This is a great joint event idea where many charities in your community can come together to all have different booths and raise money. Text in dollars- Have people text to donate a small amount, which will simply be added onto their phone bill. Fashion show- Coordinate a fashion show to feature local merchants, ask for donations at the door. This is a great, fun, and fashionable way to raise funds for your organization. Organize a competition- Have a competition say eating, dressing or fashion. Members of public will pay to participate in voting or tasting foods or sampling fashion as they donate to the cause. Just be aware of local laws regarding competitions before you start, so you can make sure that your competition is legal! Wrap events around the holidays- Get people to donate a certain amount of money on their special events. Target occasions such as birthdays and public holidays where it is easy to net many people simultaneously. Valentine and Christmas would be a great choice. For example, you could partner with a local winery for Valentine’s Day to have people purchase a certain type of premium wine where a percentage of the proceeds go to your charity. Date auction- Line up volunteers in turns for auction and the highest bidder get a chance to go for a date with a volunteer. This is always a fun (and usually funny) event, especially if you include dates with local celebrities!

Now that Business BEactive is looking to work with interns and new professionals to add to our team as we grow, it’s proper that we write a blog on how to work in social media! Hopefully it’s known by now that Business BEactive works with its clients to market and promote services to a target market, successfully. Social media offers an amazing way to reach all types of current and prospective clients. When you work in this field, there are many opportunities, physical and remote/virtual. A great way to get involved early or if you are a career-changer is to intern or begin in an entry level position that will allow you to learn and absorb information from your team. You want to become experienced in social media platforms. Learn how to engage with friends and family by promoting your favorite business or hobby. Popular social media platforms are: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. Explore the menus, features, options, and settings in each platform to help familiarize yourself with the material. It’s also nice to learn how to manage social media management systems such as Hootsuite. If you’re going to do this as a job, you want to practice being active by blogging, updating Facebook, and tweeting on Twitter on a regular basis. This will prove to any prospective opportunities that you know how to post and engage an audience. It’s important to share and post actual content, verses only typing text for each update. Stay up to date on news and updates to different social media platforms. It’s important to also know prime posting times for each platform and research shows these demographics and information each year. Last but not least, make connections with others in the social media field. It’s important to network with the people you want to be or be like. Make sure to check out our “Work with Us” page and send us your resume or email of why you want to work with us! Good luck!

Being a consultant has opened up the possibility for me to travel the world and do what I love at the same time. At this point in my life, I’m in love with my career and don’t plan on moving quite yet, but when it comes time for retirement, I’ll be ready. In retirement, I’d love to continue consulting on a part time basis and generate income. For now, take a look at all the reasons why… 1. It’s easier than you think – We believe that traveling around the world should not be hard, but it should be something everyone should do at least once in their lives. Launch TripPlanner to price your ideal route or call one our travel consultant and ask for some free advice. You can choose to spend a year or a few months traveling this beautiful planet and seeing what is out there. It’s up to you to make the dream come true and take the first step. 2. It opens your eyes – If you are open to it, travel will simply make you a more well-rounded human being. Which is really the goal, isn’t it? If you don’t know where to start check out our Around the World Planning Guide. 3. Learn who you are – Traveling with all the challenges it presents and opportunities, let’s you discover who you are in a way that only the road brings. 4. It will create meaningful relationships – People you meet while on the road usually become some of the most valued ones in your address book, giving you points on the map to visit later on. These folks give you a glimpse outside your hometown circle of friends, forcing you into new and refreshing perspectives on things. 5. It will develop skills you didn’t know you had – The satisfaction you get when reaching the top of the mountain, or crossing a gorge, or helping a villager clean up after a storm, or simply getting what you wanted at restaurant in rural China, these things all allow access to skill sets you didn’t know you had. – See more at: http://www.airtreks.com/ready/17-reasons-why-travel-is-good-for-you/#sthash.6u2K2Qhw.dpuf
