SMS Marketing From Beehive Telecom

Beehive Telecom is a Manchester based telecoms company providing business phone system solutions and a SMS marketing service.

The Rise Of SMS Marketing

SMS marketing is on the rise amongst marketers who are fastly adopting the service to promote products and services. The social aspect of marketing has left customers feeling overwhelmed by marketing messages, as Twitter and Facebook feeds are filled with companies trying to sell to us.

And it’s a similar story with email marketing. The message is simply not outstanding enough for us to notice because of the volume we receive.

This is where SMS marketing can make a real difference to how you get your customers to see your message.

Open rates of text messages are far higher than those of emails. Just 10% of emails are read as opposed to 95% of text messages being read within the first 5 minutes of receiving. This means your message is far more likely to be read if you text it.

Of the many forms of marketing available to a business owner, text marketing is among the most affordable of them all. It costs just pennies to send out a text message, whereas other forms of marketing cost much more. For just a few pence per message you can quickly and easily reach those who have opted-in to receive text message offers from you. It is that affordable, and any business can do it even with a small marketing budget in place.

Getting Started

Beehive Telecom are currently giving a free trial of their service so you can try it out and see the results for yourself.

You simply sign up for a trial account and you can start sending free texts today.

Anti-ageing for everyone

If you’re self-conscious about signs of ageing, then there’s no reason to take them lying down. Making a few changes to your daily habits can work wonders in years to come, whatever age you are.

Lifestyle

While genes play an important factor in how well you age, it’s not completely out of our hands. Living to a ripe old age is something like 30% genetics, 70% lifestyle – so knowing how your daily life affects your skin and your body is important in ageing well.

Caring for your skin is important, and it’s never too early to start with an anti-ageing routine. While younger skin doesn’t need the intense treatments of older skin, products rich in vitamins can be helpful.

Sun care is essential. Sun exposure is responsible for a lot of ageing, which can only be revealed in your later years. Sun damage is hard to reverse, so using SPF products is essential even in overcast weather. Here at Natura, we offer laser treatments for sun spots and skin pigmentation, that can help to reduce signs of ageing from sun damage.

Reducing stress is important for living a happy and healthy life. Constant tension increases strain on blood vessels and your heart, as well as keeping blood sugar high and impacting your immune system. It can also make your complexion flaky and prone to irritation, worsening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Treatments

As well as general healthy living, such as a good diet, regular exercise and plenty of sleep, there are many things you can do to help your skin with the impacts of ageing.

Natura offer a range of treatments, from multi-layer skin rejuvenation to give a revitalised complexion, to skin tightening to combat sagging and loose skin. With treatment options being tailored to your skin, you can get treatments to suit you.

Whatever your age, it’s possible to combat the signs of ageing. From a few lifestyle changes to Natura’s gold standard treatments, anyone can start an effective anti-ageing routine.

Dodging crows feet

As we get older, most people will find crow’s feet forming around their eyes. These are a natural part of ageing, and are hard to combat. But why do they form, and more importantly, what can we do about them?

Where do crow’s feet come from?

They are caused by the three S’s – smiling, squinting and sleeping, all of which are pretty unavoidable. When you smile, you’ll notice creases going from the corners of your eyes out to your temples. If they go away when you stop grinning, those are just smile lines, but if they stay, they’re crow’s feet.

They are often first noticeable in the early-thirties, though when you start to see them depends on your genes and lifestyle – as with all signs of ageing. The repetitive motion of the three S’s causes creases in the skin, and by this time the collagen may be starting to break down. This means your skin is less elastic, and less able to bounce back from repetitive creasing.

How can we stop crow’s feet forming?

If we look at the causes, it’s pretty hard to stop crow’s feet at the root of the problem.

Smiling is something we all do, every day. Unless you fancy being glum for the rest of your life, there’s really no way to stop this repetitive creasing.

Squinting can be reduced by using sunglasses all year round, to reduce the need to squint against the sun. Make sure to pack your sunnies everyday, just in case.

To avoid lines from sleeping, lying on your back and using a u-shaped travel pillow are two ways to reduce sleep lines. You could also use a silk pillowcase to reduce pulling on your skin as you sleep.

However, there are more targeted treatments for those of us who already have crow’s feet. Here at Natura we offer botox treatments that give natural looking results, and are effective at reducing wrinkling in the eye area. There’s no risk of ‘frozen face’, as the muscles there are not ones that are used for most expressions.

If you’re worried about crow’s feet, make sure to start prevention early.
