You can create an elegant look to your shop and it is the best way to attract customers to your store. Besides external beauty security applications, reliability, safety and cost effectiveness must also be taken into consideration while designing a shop fronts. Many different types of shop fronts are available in the market these days, and they are classified according to the material used for construction.

Aluminum framing adds more durability and sturdiness to your shop fronts. If you would prefer to have glass shop fronts, aluminum bordering design increases its visual appeal resulting in a design-conscious appearance. Shop fronts with other matched components like doors, windows, cabins and shelves are other factors that increase the attraction and security of your shop fronts.

Civic, Rex, Bis, Jolly E & M, Ten, Exeo and GTC are examples of some of the kinds of shop front which have been used widely by small, medium and large-scale companies with high street stores. An experienced shop front contractor will submit the blueprint and layout drawn according to your description and requirement. Along with the construction, appropriate electrical and plumbing works must also completed by an experienced electrician and plumber. An experienced shop front contractor will guarantee you high quality craftsmanship, excellent customer service, a choice of 3D design, security grills, strong, durable windows, high commitment and competitive pricing.

The appearance of the door fronts are not the only thing taken in to consideration while constructing a shop front. Other store operation-related issues like security measures, lighting, electricity, signs and more must be planned carefully from the beginning of the project development.

The majority of proprietors prefer traditionally designed fronts, often constructed from timber. The chief advantage of wooden shop fronts over other materials is the ease of repair and replacement. Civic, Rex, Bis, Jolly E & M, Ten, Exeo, and GTC are the main types of shop front used widely in high street stores and other organizations.

As an overview, having an aesthetically pleasing design on the front of your store could be the most effective way of bringing new customers to your shop, and it could be much cheaper than a new marketing campaign. Despite the well-meaning message of the old phrase, many people do judge a book by its cover so give your store an impressive new look and step into line with the competition.

The Music Business – Mind Your Manners

In my travels I have been fortunate enough to be-friend some amazing people that were heavily involved in the music industry. One of those became a good friend of mine and she introduced me to some guys who were looking to put a band together.

They asked her if she would join and she said yes, but on one condition, and that condition was that she could bring me along too. I had never played live in a band before, I had never had a guitar or singing lesson, but luckily for me, she obviously had enough confidence in me. Her name is MaryAnne Rex, a very talented guitarist with a wicked sense of humour and is a great friend that would do anything for you. I will never forget what she did for me all those years ago because without her, I may never have achieved the things that I have.

The most important thing I remember she taught me was the discipline needed to work in the music industry.

  • How to dress when you are on stage
  • How to be reliable and not let anyone down
  • How important it was to be there no matter what
  • How to run your band as a business.    

How many times do you hear about successful bands that are now broke?, and usually it is because no-one really bothered to keep an eye on the money side of things.

The most important aspect of the discipline is ‘The Gig’. No matter what, you must be there. Rain, hail or shine, in sickness or in health, you must turn up to play.

You must also be respectful of the times set out by the venue manager when it comes to

  • loading in the sound and lighting gear
  • when they want the sound checks done
  • when your performance times are.

There is nothing worse than ticking off a venue manager which will lead to ticking off your agent, which will then lead to never working in the industry again. It is that simple.

You need to be professional at all times, but remember to have some fun too. I remember some of the most fun I have ever had is when we went on the road to do some mini tours around New South Wales. We did not get much sleep but we had heaps of fun.

Be prepared to make some sacrifices to achieve things in your band. The worst times are when you are dog tired or even sick. It does not matter, you have to be there. That is the type of discipline you will need.

My worst nightmare was having to ask the boss if I could leave early from work. He was the boss from hell and made things really challenging for me. One day, I had had enough and I resigned! There were a few other reasons at the time but I was positive I was making the right decision. A little risky? Yeah sure, but I was not going to fulfill my dream working full time in a post office.

Have you ever heard about the ladder of success? The music business is no different. Start at the bottom, even if it is against your better judgment, and work your way up. You never know who is in the audience at the worst gig in the worst little pub.

Working behind the scenes of a band is exciting too. There are many opportunities and lots of things to learn working as a sound engineer or lighting technician. What about as a tour manager or publicist?

I was lucky enough to get a job in the agency that represented my first band, ‘Backchat’ in Sydney. (The band my friend helped me get into). I had resigned from my government job and started at the agency two days a week rolling posters and doing the banking. Over a period of about 18 months, I was practically running the place. From that job, I joined another band, and in that band, I met my future husband. Just as well I resigned from that government job eh?

Just a little tip for you to remember. If you ever meet anyone that is even slightly famous, and they just happen to compliment you and strike up a conversation with you, don not forget to swap contact details. You never know where that could take you. I have kicked myself in the butt so many times over the years for letting an opportunity like that get away. The guy just happened to be a popular session musician who had many friendships with a lot of famous people. Big mistake!

Anyway, I hope you have a lot of fun, and learn everything you need to achieve your goals.

How To Get More Leads For Rex Worldwide

Rex Worldwide Leads

If you’ve found this page right now, I’m sure you’re looking for a way to generate more leads for your Rex Worldwide business. Now Rex Worldwide is a company that’s fairly new to the scene, pre-launching in November 2011. Only time will tell just how long this business endures but if you’re planning to join, you must have a game-plan for lead generation. If you don’t learn how to generate leads for your Rex Worldwide, you’re most likely going to… FAIL!

One of the primary reasons that people fail in business, besides mindset, is lack of leads. Whether its work from home business or a traditional business, without leads or prospects you don’t have a business. So one of the first things that folks are taught in MLM is how to create a list of their family and friends, write all their names down, and talk to them about their business.

Unfortunately, most of the people can’t even think of 70 people and even if they have a list of 100 or more prospects, most of the people on that list will NOT be interested in signing up for their business.

So what happens next? Most reps choose to simply quit Rex Worldwide and state that it doesn’t work. But it really does work and if you choose to join, you should know EXACTLY where and how you’re gonna find more leads and individuals to talk with as soon as you exhaust your current warm market since you WILL run out of people. You simply don’t want to be like the other quitters who just throw in the towel. Business is business and if you take it seriously, you can come out on top. Below are some ways you can generate more leads for your Rex Worldwide business.

How To Generate Leads For Rex Worldwide:

You’ve got a couple of choices in terms of generating leads. You can generate leads online, you could also generate leads offline, you may even buy leads. Now I wouldn’t suggest buying leads because most of them are either outdated and the leads you speak to are simply not the best type of leads you would like. The majority of them are opportunity junkies who just sign up their name to some lead list that you’ll buy. When you call them up, they most likely won’t be interested in what you are offering and you’ll just be wasting your time for the most part.

Generating leads offline is great but you just have to know where and how to find them. You can use 100 bill drop cards that folks will pick up and go to your website or call you. You may also use bandit signs with a message like “Make 6-figures Per Year From Home. Don’t Believe It, Don’t Call” (then your phone number). You can also call realtors and business owners in your own backyard. Generally these people are higher quality of individuals because they’re already used to generating revenue on their own production and your Rex Worldwide business could be a better vehicle for them to achieve true financial and time freedom.

Best Way To Generate Leads For Rex Worldwide

In my opinion, the BEST way for you to generate leads for your Rex Worldwide business is to position yourself on the internet in a way that people who are actively searching and looking for your products and opportunity can actually contact YOU. See its much better to build a business when you have people coming to you as opposed to you chasing after them. Yes some of the offline tactics I mentioned are good but those people were not ACTIVELY SEARCHING and seeking you out. People who are looking for something are ALWAYS the HIGHEST QUALITY of prospects to talk to. To learn more about this strategy, you can check out these FREE Videos Right Here.
