Yeah sure we have the cricket to help us, but sometimes that just ain’t enough for a boss like you. 5) Tell your boss you are unable to do anywork due to systematic breakdown of all the office equipment. Youa€™re starting your Pozible journey, the idea is solid, and now you just need to get people on board.

Security has always been high on our priority list, and wea€™ve learnt a lot in the last few years.
Currently when you make a project, you can create an embedded widget that shows real time progress of your campaign. Successful projects currently have the option to keep their page open as a selling platform for products and other project-related goodies.
To be able to show you around our shiny new site, wea€™re gonna need time to pack up and move in.
If youa€™re currently drafting a project, avoid starting or ending at this time, and talk to one of us here at Pozible about planning for these changes. If you experience any problems using the new website or if you have any questions, please let us know. A big part of my mission here at Pozible is to raise number that is actually pretty meaningful to a lot of people. On a daily basis I work closely with creators, providing advice at all stages of their campaigns.
This question sent me on quest for answers into the data stores of Australia's biggest crowdfunding platform. The next line up from that (orange line) is the campaigns in-between the 30 - 50% funded milestones. The next up (yellow line) is where i'm focused on over the next few months - if this group could be bumped up over that stubborn 70% funded mark, their chances of hitting their target would be much higher. Although this information is very general and doesn't really account for different peak activity times for different length campaigns, we can still learn a lot and at least we have some benchmark to compare to.
We know the look well - ita€™s the slight edge of panic that comes over our workshop crowds when you mention a€?social media strategy.a€? Because whether youa€™re doing it for work or leisure, social media is a big scary time suck - and one that can often be ineffective if you dona€™t know what youa€™re doing.
Plenty of businesses and campaigns are simply not suited to social media, but get involved because they think they have to. Dona€™t try to divide your time between 5 different platforms if your core community are only on Twitter. Great Forest National Park ran a highly successful Facebook-focused campaign built purely on great images. Scheduling might feel impersonal, but in reality it frees you to improvise with your social media posts while the campaign is running, rather than playing catch up to the stuff you should have posted last week. There are plenty of tools out there to help you do what youa€™re already doing so you dona€™t have to. IFFFT for their dead easy a€?recipesa€? that bridge the different apps and platforms you use most often. Ensuring photos shared from Instagram to Twitter show up as photos, rather than an unappealing link.
So the silly season is here but that doesn't mean your creative juices need to stop flowing. Some social good campaigns have had a lot of success with donation certificates as christmas gifts, "This year your christmas money went to XX in need" - A perfect gift for those who are impossible to shop for. While we do see a drop off in projects submitted for review over December for obvious reasons, there isn't actually a drop off in pledges per project. You'll notice in the graph that December is actually one of the best times a year to launch, with a greater average number of campaign supporters. Pozible has ticked past some pretty mega milestones recently, with our 10,000th project launching within a week of our $40 millionth dollar pledged.
Our most active categories have always been from Australia's creative industries, with Film, Music and Performance getting the biggest project numbers. We also spent some time with the people who often get forgotten - unsuccessful campaigners.

For a business run by and for creative professionals, ita€™s little wonder Communea€™s Instagram feed is heaving with, well, creativity.
Last year's winners were Bike Cabs, Bamboo Monkey and the Foster Care Association of Victoria. Porter Novelli Melbourne is part of the Clemenger Group Limited, Australiaa€™s largest and most successful group of communications companies. Though it may seem the only way to get from where you are to where you want to be, waiting for someone in charge to pick you is an outdated idea that bears little fruit.
Making the decision to truly back yourself and ruthlessly pursue your dreams takes courage.
Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, the women behind the sitcom Broad CityA­, even singer Rebecca Black (remember her?): they all circumvented the accepted route to success by creating their own opportunities instead of waiting for someone important to validate them.
Rejected from multiple entry-level jobs after university, CNN journalist Anderson Cooper also picked himself when he independently set off overseas as a foreign correspondent A­a€“ without any promise of being employed or commissioned. Cooper highlights the need to get out there and actively pursue goals instead of waiting around to be noticed, something many people count on but few experience. Equally, Pozible is all about people picking themselves, a tenet at the very root of the platform. Applying for bank loans and making big, all-or-nothing investment pitches to businesses a€“ ones that delicately hinge on the whims of a corporate bigwig a€“ are no longer the only way to see your big ideas come into fruition.
So youa€™ve heard the inspiring outcomes of people picking themselves and youa€™re motivated to follow suit.
In the age of the internet, the road to becoming a published writer, recording artist, illustrator or entrepreneur is literally a click away.
When it comes to successful community-based Pozible projects, few campaigns come close to the mind-blowing success of the Pit Pony Experience. Despite having zero prior involvement in crowdfunding, the Pit Pony Experience team approached the process with serious smarts, building a strategy around who to approach for support first. In a bid to attract this support, the team held a community meeting at the Collinsville town hall, which was at capacity for the occasion.
Dona€™t underestimate the importance people place on seeing that a project has already attracted significant support. Sue is adamant her project would have struggled to gain traction with corporate purse-string-holders if not for the initial grass roots support. People often need to feel some kind of a personal connection to a project before theya€™ll part with their hard-earned money. But according to Sue, the driving force behind the entire campaigna€™s success was one reward in particular: the promise of a supportera€™s name appearing on the monumenta€™s wall of fame.
Leta€™s face it: everyone loves to receive rewards in the form of tangible goodies (hello, toy pony?).
An intriguing point of difference is crucial to any money-raising endeavour a€“ whata€™s exciting about something thata€™s been done before?
Even better, the team cleverly coincided the campaign launch with the 25th anniversary of the pit poniesa€™ retirement from coalmine service. To secure the all-important large sums of sponsorship money, Sue and her Pit Pony Experience team approached companies that had a direct interest in the very essence of the project.
If your campaign aims to fund a new school in Africa, hitting up Gina Rineharta€™s people for some coin maybe isna€™t going to get you far. If you live on the internet like us, therea€™s little chance youa€™ve missed the work of Peter Drew. At the conclusion of his Australian tour, we had a quick chat to Peter about his experiences, from the crowdfunding process to how his project was received by the people on the street. Where did you get the idea for the project?The project was inspired by the second verse of the Australian national anthem. Can you describe a particular exchange or moment on your tour (negative or positive) that really stuck with you?In the first week of the campaign I met a man in Bondi who wasn't sure about my message.
Joana Partyka is a freelance writer and editor currently interning at Pozible and repetitively painting in her spare time.
Every day since April 6th this year, thousands of people around the world have sat down to repeat the same creative act they performed yesterday.
How can repeating the same thing over and over again possibly yield a creative breakthrough? When you look at repetition from this perspective, it makes a lot more sense as the harbinger of creativity. 100 Day Project this year, recounts a conversation she had with fellow artist George Zisiadis.
Like Foster Wallacea€™s observations on tennis and Zisiadisa€™ realisation about Picasso, the same principle applies to any other skill-based activity a€“ even launching a successful Pozible project. Mr Black, successfully funded via Pozible in 2013, went through more than 240 iterations of the drink before hitting their eureka moment. Mr Blacka€™s Tom Baker says the Japanese principle of kaizen a€“ greatness achieved through small improvements over a long period of time a€“ underpins the companya€™s operations and is the reason theya€™ve come so far.
Tom says the key to hitting that creative jackpot is to simply start a€“ and once you start, the refinement process will take care of itself if you put in the work.
The creative world abounds with examples of people striking gold through their commitment to repetition. What would happen if you practiced playing the piano for an hour every day over the course of a year? The beauty of unlocking your creativity through repetition is that you dona€™t need anything special in order to strike gold, just your most basic tools a€“ a guitar if youa€™re a songwriter, a camera if youa€™re a photographer, pen and paper if youa€™re a writer. Coffee and beer arena€™t a panacea for creativity a€“ you still need to put in the work, and you dona€™t want to develop a dependency on either substance (or on backflipping from rooftops into pools, for that matter). With so many social networks already out there - and plenty more launching every month - figuring out an effective social media strategy for your campaign, product or idea can feel incredibly overwhelming. When your project isn't doing as well as you hoped, it can be really tempting to play the pity or guilt cards to get people to pledge before its too late. More than any other reason, people seem to share as a way to show that they support and care about a particular issue.
Ita€™s one of the less obvious issues facing Pozible project creators, but one we hear about time and time again: how do you promote your project and gain supporters without, well, annoying people? Having successfully crowdfunded the first print issue of Aphra Magazine with matchfunding support from Arts Tasmaniaa€™s Crowbar initiative, editor-in-chief Lucy McDonald talks to us about how to maintain that fine balance.
Lucy says if they had to do it again, the Aphra Mag team would pay even closer attention to their marketing strategy.
Rather than being reactive, Lucy says ita€™s important to devise contingencies for rough or slow patches before they happen. It can be helpful to prepare marketing tools such as a social media calendar or media outreach timeline a€“ nothing overly formal, just something to give you and your team a clear direction so you're not scrambling for content and ideas halfway through the campaign. Apart from perhaps your nearest and dearest, asking people for money straight up is probably not the friendliest approach. Consider what might drive someone to back your campaign, and work towards highlighting that in your marketing. Think of it like a mum waving to her son from the sidelines of a soccer match to remind him shea€™s still there, rather than the crazed dad flailing his arms and shouting out instructions from afar. Arts Tasmania's Crowbar initiative offers up to 50% matchfunding for Tasmanian-based arts projects. Theatre has long been one of our most active categories on Pozible, so we thought ita€™s about time someone gave some expert advice on the matter.
Loud Mouth Theatre Companya€™s co-founder Campbell McKenzie, who last year successfully funded the company's Hamlet: Heads and Tails project through Pozible with Arts Tasmaniaa€™s Crowbar initiative.
Ita€™s one of the more difficult obstacles to successfully crowdfunding a theatre project: your entire product and many of your rewards are tied down to one specific city. When crowdfunding a performance, the bulk of your rewards will no doubt be in the form of show tickets, and thata€™s a great, relevant reward. Campbell says he was initially very concerned about the Hamlet projecta€™s location specificity, but his worries proved unfounded. Though people often do pledge funds for no reward or a reward they cana€™t physically claim, ita€™s probably best not to hang your entire campaign on this strategy. Inspiring Eileen, which funded a performance choreographed by 100-year-old dancer Eileen Kramer a€“ who was also the star of the show. Hamlet: Heads or Tails project was in the novel idea of flipping a coin before each performance to determine which actor would play which part.
Wea€™re not saying you should to turn to cheap, insincere gimmicks to drum up interest in your project a€“ just think about what you might be able to offer that no one else can. Inviting the public to have a say or claim some credit in the execution of your project can be a great approach to drumming up interest. If you can find a way for your supporters to be a part of the making process, this can sway fence-sitters into making the leap from admirer to financial backer. Most campaigns experience a slow period in the middle, only to have pledges shoot up again in the final days. Like any other Pozible campaign, your network a€“ and your visibility within it a€“ is often the key to your success. My daughter Katie was quite the soccer player back in the day, and one of her greatest strengths was her mental game. Late in one of her high school matches she found herself defending one-on-one with an opposing player. And, if you’re not extremely careful, you feel your confidence sink like a bowling ball in quicksand.
Carry the past defeat into the future opportunity and you’ll find self-doubt doing a dance on your head. Several times each year Shore Consulting hosts a dynamic, interactive and career-changing real estate sales program called The 4:2 Formula Academy™. Instead, tell customers about other buyers who shared the same objection and yet decided to purchase anyway.
This is often referred to as The Law of Social Proof which states that people are more inclined to do things that other people like them are already doing. In the case of the small backyard, find other buyers who shared the same objection and purchased in spite of it. In reference to the small backyard objection, I would simply ask, “Let me ask…let’s say you loved everything else and decided to move in to this home anyway.
Almost immediately you see the customer’s eyes dart around to solve his or her own problem.
That being the case, you may need to simply ask, “Is the backyard something you could live with?” If the answer is “No” then you know it is a deal killer.
So, if you want to revolutionize your sales career, take some time to learn a little bit more about The 4:2 Formula Academy.
I’m a big fan of boosting sales success by asking for the sale on the very first visit. The cool thing about this approach is that you WILL find customers who buy on the first visit. A customer comes into your store, your sales office or your showroom and you do your thing. The prospect shows interest, but is not exactly jumping out of their skin with excitement over what you have to offer.
They get into their car and immediately begin to rehash the conversation, they tear apart the product, they weigh all the pros and cons. Forget the whole 24 hour follow-up thing – that is an eternity for someone who is agonizing over a major purchase.
Find ways to offer new value points, to diffuse concerns, and to prove to the customer that you just plain out-care the competition. Or maybe just to text them a video of the feature they loved most about your product — just to remind them how much they loved it!
Sales leaders always hunt for successful new sales talent and often want advice on what makes for a strong salesperson. Sales leaders always hunt for successful new sales talent and often ask me for advice about the specific skills that predict sales success.
Interestingly, some of the most essential sales success skills require no experience at all – which is one of the reasons I sometimes encourage sales leaders to consider hiring people with no previous sales experience. You can always teach a willing learner how to achieve success in sales, but you can’t always coach the essential selling skills listed below. It is probably no surprise to anyone that attitude is top of the sales success skills list. We need to realize that a salesperson with a poor attitude is leaking those negative feelings all over your buyers and poisoning your sales offices. I understand that everyone gets a bit down now and again, but a salesperson with a consistently bad attitude is simply unacceptable.
You want salespeople who will give it everything they’ve got, then take coaching from you and give a little bit more. Salespeople who throw in the towel too quickly are costing you crucial sales. How well can they prioritize and manage their time so that they arrive when and where they should be?
Seek out the salespeople who show interest in your training program, who can speak about what they’ve learned from others and who can share with you some of the recent sales books they’ve read and how they’ve helped them improve their selling skills. Sales success skills that require no experience are a beautiful thing because it allows sales leaders to seek out great PEOPLE and turn them into great SALESPEOPLE.
And if you want to make it easy for your customer to buy, your story must include a rock-solid closing question. More precisely, your story must include a series of closing questions throughout the process. Please – PLEASE – do not fall into the trap of thinking that NOT asking for the sale is somehow providing a service to your customer.
In this video, I sit down with a very successful business coach out of Katy, Texas named Mike Calderwood of Calderwood coaching. Regardless of your interest in college basketball, or how the final game affected your office pool, you gotta admit – the end of the Villanova-UNC NCAA Championship Game was one for the ages.
Regardless of your interest in college basketball, or your geographical ties, or how the final game affected your office pool, you gotta admit – the end of the Villanova-UNC NCAA Championship Game in April 2016 was a success story for the ages.
The hero of the game was Villanova’s Kris Jenkins, who drained a long three-pointer as the clock expired.
Smile before the customer comes through the door (or before you do, or before you dial the phone). While it might be too late to make major changes in these areas for the fast approaching spring selling season, it’s still not a bad idea to do a quick check on your offerings and allow yourself the flexibility to make any doable adjustments.
As I’m sure you’re aware, there are a gazillion books on selling, sales technique, sales theory, etc.
If you’d be okay with it, then you are probably using a customer-centered, mission-based selling technique.
Go read some Stephen Covey and Jeff Shore to get yourself straight before stepping back onto the sales floor – trust me, you’ll be better off, more successful, and your customers will thank you for it.
One of the best, most effective ways to help buyers buy is to ask them strong closing questions all the way throughout your presentation. The post 3 Mental & Emotional Keys to Your Sales Success appeared first on Jeff Shore. On the one hand we expect outgoing, gregarious, creative, relational, caring and empathetic salespeople. On the other hand we want detail-oriented, analytical, good with numbers, systematic in their thinking, and well-organized salespeople. No wonder it is so difficult to find the truly GREAT salespeople with compelling success profiles. Great salespeople are heavy on the grey matter, and they embrace the opportunity to solve problems. Of course I had to ask her to “tell me more about that.” She went on to explain that certain people only breathe life into their relationships when there is something to be gained.
There is nothing worse than a sales person who fakes a relationship to make a sale then disappears for a good amount of time only to randomly call in the future to sell that person something. Even if you already made a commission, why not continue providing value after the sale? Who is to say they won’t buy from you again or they won’t refer someone your way? Continue building relationships beyond the close and watch how you will continue to impact your customer’s world.

Drop-outs and delays are inherently part of any website, but we've built our new baby to withstand much more traffic and keep chasing that 0% downtime dream. We've got a sweet new Plugins area which allows you to add useful tools and customising options to your campaigns.
These cute little boxes are not going to make it in the move, so if you have a widget embedded somewhere on your blog or page, we suggest removing him because he is probably gonna break.
You can still create a standard campaign hosted on our site, but we have some newoptions for creators hoping to integrate campaigns on their own sites, with personal branding and no Pozible re-direct. The migration process might be a little bumpy and it's safe to say we'll experience some minor interruptions between April 2 - 6. The number i'm talking about is the overall campaign dream come true rate (success rate) for campaigns across the entire Pozible platform. From the heart palpitation of the initial launch, to the heart palpitations of joy when they hit their target. It's at these milestones that we see the biggest drop-offs, with each one, you're chance of hitting your financial target increases.


This is so shockingly low because all the campaigners who were invigorated with just enough inspiration to get them to the launch button, but then never worked any further on the campaign resulting in $0 in pledges. The main thing we can all take from this is that after the 10 day line, you really start to know if you're in the top line, or the 50-70% line. The very platforms that started out open and accessible, are now putting walls up to push monetisation.
Embarking on social media without a compelling reason why you're doing it is the easiest way to waste your own time. These can often post across social media sites, BUT make sure you test out your preferred scheduling service first to make sure things like tags and images show up properly. Schedule your "serious" updates, then vary them up with impromptu as-they-happen moments from the campaign, like thank-yous to recent pledgers, a screenshot of a funny comment someone left on your Pozible page, or a photo of your team member passed out from exhaustion on your couch. Youa€™re bound to discover things you didna€™t even know could be automated, which is half the fun. December's when people are getting together more often, making merry and feeling generous, so it can be a great opportunity to get the word out about your project. Project creators often tell us they're worried about running a campaign in December, when people might be otherwise distracted, but the important dates are really when you launch and close. In fact, in theory you'll be competing with less projects for that coveted front page real estate. To celebrate, we did some soul searching, some surveying and some digging into our stats vault to see how crowdfunding has fared in Australia since we started 5 years ago. Buchan itself had only 400 people, but their campaign saw over $600,000 pour in from 1,694 supporters - many of whom had never been to Buchan and probably never would.
But with more than 300 million active Instagram users per month, there's a lot of visual clutter to distract you from the good stuff. Perfectly capturing the languid life of a dog, Nice Digs' feed features the brand's stylish doggy beds, throws, collars and leashes alongside some cute furry friends.

In short: you'll see shots of interesting people doing interesting stuff that'll make you want to hire a desk at Commune. Now back in Australia, Evie's Instagram presence showcases the fruits of her residency as well as pieces inspired by her everyday surrounds. That's why we're thrilled to have award winning agency jack+bill back to support the Pozible community again this year with up to $30,000 worth of free PR support for three lucky Melbourne-based projects and one in Sydney! The three projects were chosen during a pitch night at Pozible HQ, and raised an amazing $55,000+ during their crowdfunding runs. While that faceless person in charge may very well choose you, it's dangerous to hang your entire chance of success on a strategy over which you have no control.
A bunch of Perth go-getters launched an ambitious new restaurant, forgoing the usual route of taking out a crippling business loan. Thata€™s something self-published childrena€™s book author and illustrator Jennifer Cossins experienced firsthand. Youa€™ve recorded the tracks (or not … work on it!), youa€™ve sent out demos to record companies and agents, and now youa€™re waiting. The project aimed to fund a commemorative monument to celebrate the legacy of coal mining ponies in Collinsville, a Queensland town located 250 km south of Townsville.
They understood the need to get the average community member on board before hitting the local council and corporations for larger sums of sponsorship dollars, who'd be more likely to help once they saw the community behind the project. Everyone wants to back a winner a€“ and things are no different in the world of crowdfunding.
If the project hadna€™t had that sort of input at first, neither the council nor the corporates would have run with it,a€? she says.
The collective sense of pride and ownership imparted by that simple reward proved to be priceless.
But for many people, the idea of gaining recognition for a project they backed is irresistible a€“ particularly in the form of a laser-engraved granite monument there for all to see forever.
The Pit Pony Experience team knew this, aiming to forge a new identity for Collinsville as the pit pony capital of Australia. Is it blazing a never-before-walked trail, or celebrating something distinctive and noteworthy? As Collinsvillea€™s history is steeped in mining a€“ and the project aimed to commemorate the towna€™s coalmine ponies a€“ local mining companies were an obvious fit. Since April this year, the Adelaide artist has been travelling around Australia to share his a€?Real Australians Say Welcomea€™ message, pasting up his posters around our capital cities and major centres while talking to people about their views on refugee policy along the way. There was so much that I had to figure out as I went, especially in cities like Brisbane and Hobart where I'd never been before. I've since met dozens of others like him who support immigration, just not so-called 'illegal' migration. A drawing, a photograph, a typographic image a€“ whatever the theme or medium, theya€™re making an effort to repeat this act for 100 consecutive days.
Isna€™t that the complete opposite of creativity, which is all about exploring new ideas and processes? But while it may seem counterintuitive, it actually ignites creativity by building your basic skills to free up your brain for exploring more complex ideas.
He was surprised to see sketches exhibited alongside Picassoa€™s Guernica, and says via Luna: a€?You mean it didna€™t happen in one fell swoop?
Also a tutor at Yale School of Art, the project was born as a way of instilling in his students the importance of creative discipline. By the end of it, youa€™d probably be able to tickle the ivories with minimal thought or effort. Ita€™s why many of our best ideas come when wea€™re out for a jog or in the shower: those actions are so ingrained they free our brains to hit the valuable lightbulb moments seemingly out of nowhere. Commit to repeating your chosen craft regularly a€“ not necessarily every day, but frequently enough for it to gain traction and yield measureable improvements.

Take advantage of this by converting your text updates into eye-catching images that are easy and fun to share. However, research suggests that positive messages, especially those that contain humour or the awe-inspiring, are far more popular than ones that suggest sadness, anger or even empathy. Think about the different causes that are important to your target audience, and how your project relates to them. If there's a particular target audience you're after, take a look at where they hang out, and make notes on what posts prove most popular. It might run counter to your creative spirit, it might seem pointless as your excellent project speaks for itself, or you might be afraid of coming across as an insufferable braggart. But if you're launching a Pozible campaign, ita€™s something you need to get comfortable with a€“ your project depends on it. You want to be the quietly confident mum, classily making her presence known, and not the annoying, in-your-face dad that everyonea€™s wishing would just go away.Put on your PR hatThough Aphra Magazine was essentially a competitor to the very publications it looked to for promotion, Lucy says it was an important component of the projecta€™s marketing strategy.
You want to cast your fundraising net as wide as possible, but youa€™re not sure how people will respond to a project delivered outside of their home city.
But the key to overcoming the seemingly impossible obstacle of location specificity is to offer rewards unbound to location. Instead, more bankable rewards such as performance posters can spur lots of people to pledge small amounts.
Unfortunately, we cana€™t all be amazing 100-year-old dancers, but we can certainly draw inspiration from her. Decked out in various eclectic accoutrements such as corrugated iron and random couches, the grungy location and set made a€?a perfect counterpoint to a play about a rich nation falling aparta€?, according to Campbell. Whether this involves actually contributing content to the show, casting by coin toss, or even just giving them special access to behind the scenes photos and footage as you progress through rehearsals, people who feel like theya€™re an actual part of what youa€™re doing are more likely to pledge and, more importantly, to spread the word. Youa€™re baring your soul, hoping people will respond positively to your creative project and funnel their precious, hard-earned money into it.
Here's how we can learn from Katie and create a similar mental game for when we run into sales adversity.
It gets inside your head quickly, and just as quickly it descends to a discomfort in your gut. As she was jogging back to her position for the ensuing kick-off she reached into the air in front of her, extended her right arm, and closed her hand around something invisible.
The challenge with this strategy is we often lack credibility when we say, “I know how you feel.” I also believe that buyers smell a sales tactic here. Ask them how they made the backyard work and then share those stories with potential customers that share the same concern about the yard size. It’s a 12-week learning cycle that features a three-day live coaching event along with with video lessons, webinars and certification testing to help you maximize your selling potential and maximize your commissions. The prospect shows interest, but is not exactly jumping out of their skin with excitement over what you have to offer. The most successful sales people never assume that they need a second visit to close the deal. Amy O'Connor shares four of the most essential selling skills that require no experience at all. Yet, as I work with sales teams all across the country, I am consistently surprised by the sheer volume of salespeople with poor attitudes.
I’ve always thought this ridiculous since 110% is impossible, but I understand the premise: give it everything you’ve got and then give a little bit more. Being on time seems especially difficult for some salespeople, yet it is a sign of their organizational skills.
A salesperson’s punctuality is a good indicator of how successfully they manage their commitments to their buyers. It shows respect by not being late or disruptive and it shows respect for other peoples’ time. No one ever gets anything completely figured out. Many of the most successful salespeople I know seek learning more fervently than people who are just starting out. Understanding and applying this knowledge into both your hiring process and your ongoing evaluative process will help you transform your sales team into a top producing machine. When you get to know her, you begin to understand that she has a problem that must be solved. With each new agreement you move your customer through the story, getting closer and closer to the climax – that magical moment when her problem gets solved. An even better approach is to ask someone who has done it and also helps others do the same. Mike and I discuss two major keys you need to have in order to reach your goals and achieve true sales success. The time to come up with your opening statement is not when your customer is standing in front of you.
And here’s the rub, with all the choices available to buyers they are looking to eliminate you and they will do so – quickly. Allowing them the opportunity to make small choices will prevent them from becoming overwhelmed. For the record, she is arguably the most amazing person I know when it comes to relationships. Most of the time food servers seem very interested in making sure I am properly taken care of.
Stay Connected – I know this seems elementary, but I have to tell you, it doesn’t happen very much. Remain Interested – Old school sales training has overly emphasized being ‘interesting’ to customers.

Here are some easy ways you can trim the time you spend on social media, while also making sure you stay efficient. Set a target for each of your posts so you can see which are doing well once they start going out. If you're running a campaign purely on a Facebook page, you can also schedule posts within Facebook (see how here ).
For almost every campaign, the majority of pledges come through in the first and final days of the campaign.
So, we set out to find some of the most creative and cheerful Instagram feeds run by past Pozible project creators.
If you squeal in delight at the sight of sleepy puppies and playful hounds, this one's for you. Expect to see images of just that: coffee, snacks, and cool people working to make their slice of the world a better place. You'll see beautiful watercolour paintings depicting sausage dogs, vegetables and emoji alongside alongside equally whimsical behind-the-scenes shots of her life and style.Think we could do better? The father of the a€?pick yourselfa€™ mantra, American author and entrepreneur Seth Godin says although it's a cultural instinct to wait for permission, taking responsibility for achieving your goals a€“ picking yourself a€“ will inch you ever closer to your own definition of success in ways you never knew possible.
Godin says the worlda€™s gatekeepers a€“ the hiring managers, the university selection boards, the sports team captains a€“ are losing relevance and power thanks in large part to the door-opening possibilities of the internet. And the reality is, waiting to be picked is form of hiding that places the onus of action onto others.
Instead of waiting for a retailer to stock her pieces, an Adelaide artist worked to open her own shop and studio.
Jennifer successfully crowdfunded two childrena€™s books through Pozible after initially exploring the traditional (and notoriously tough) route of pitching her idea to publishers.
The team raised more than $190,000, smashing their already intimidating target of $150,000, and are on track to unveil the monument by Christmas this year. Work hard at the beginning to secure support at the ground level and youa€™ll find the domino effect can be powerful.
Luckily, the proud residents of Collinsville are passionate about where they live, so the Pit Pony project appealed to their sense of community pride and identity from the get-go. Think about how you can get people to feel like theya€™re part of the process A­a€“ any reward that puts peoplea€™s names up in lights can be very effective. Being the last place in the nation to use pit ponies in their local coalmine, Sue says this unique claim to fame generated interest in the project from the very beginning. By figuring out your point of difference and highlighting it, youa€™ll make people feel like theya€™re part of something innovative, and that can be really powerful.
His project just about broke the internet in Australia, with everyone from BuzzFeed to the Design Files spruiking his message.
I especially like the line about courage because it reveals the truth about this issue being a contest between courage and fear.
People on both sides have a great deal of passion for this issue and it can easily become overwhelming.
I'd never set up meetings with senators or even done much public speaking so it's been pretty intense, but all came so quickly that I really didn't have time to get nervous.
Some weren't interested in a discussion a€“ they just wanted to explain to me why I should be afraid of the same things that scare them. Repetition takes you from novice to master, subconsciously reinforcing the skills youa€™re working so hard to consciously hone. Ita€™s now stocked nationwide at Dan Murphya€™s and the team was one of only six liqueur makers globally to win a gold medal at the 2012 International Wine and Spirits Competition in London.
Bierut himself undertakes the project annually, speaking volumes about the practicea€™s value even to people from the highest echelons of success. Schedule it as you would an appointment (that old chestnut!), and share it if possible a€“ the 100 Day Project advocates sharing via Instagram, keeping participants accountable and providing a sense of confidence in seeing their body of work improve and grow. In a yin and yang-type relationship, one fosters creativity but hampers follow-through, while the other builds focus and the ability to perform.
Add a good caption underneath, but remember that some social networks strip away the text description when an image is reposted - if there's an important message you need to relay (like the link to your project), it's worth embedding it onto the image with Photoshop, or easy free tools like Canva and Piktochart. Try to put a positive spin on your updates, or failing that, throw in a joke and a silly picture of yourself. Too much and it could actually have the opposite-to-intended effect, prompting people to tune out. But while the way you promote your campaign may be an afterthought to your actual project, ita€™s actually in your best interests to plan your approach well before you launch. You want them to remember, but you dona€™t want them to feel overwhelmed.a€?People respond well to changing stimuli, so try to think of ways to connect with your audience and deliver your message in unusual, varying ways. Think outside the box a€“ that could be anyone from your teacher aunt who can share your campaign with her staffroom colleagues, to your Insta-happy younger brother and his thousands of followers. Youa€™ll greatly diversify your supporter base if you offer something of relative value thata€™s accessible to anyone.
Feel-good rewards such as Facebook shout-outs and videos individually thanking your supporters can also encourage out-of-towners to make what they consider a worthwhile pledge. The campaigna€™s novelty and feel-good factors certainly played a part in its success a€“ a centenarian in a modern dance performance is not something you come across very often.
Instead, think of creative ways to get peoplea€™s interest back, like a new reward or a photo of the team slogging away to remind everyone of the real people and vision depending on their support.
You feel like the whole world just saw your mistake, as if the fifty people on the sidelines were actually 50,000. At that point, you just need to handle the objection using the cards you’ve been dealt.
The idea here is to get the customer out of a complaining mindset and into a creative mindset. And your customers will experience the most intense contemplation and emotions immediately after the sales presentation. A salesperson who isn’t capable of showing this type of respect can and WILL frustrate your buyers.
This is a tremendous advantage in the market, because it allows you to more easily stand apart from your competitors in a very personal way. Capturing sales early will provide you the confidence and social proof you need to subsist through the marathon that we in sales lovingly call – spring selling season! It drives great salespeople nuts when they are not selling as much as they know they should.
Think back to what Melissa shared with me; they are only interested in the relationship to the extent it serves them. Mostly because sales people fear buyer’s remorse or again, they are just focused on their commission.

We need to put together two complete production crews to enable us to always have at least one film in pre-production, one in production and one in post year round. Rewards are a great way to encourage people to support you, and to include and thank them for their generosity in a way that is unique to you. Tailored banners and notifications will guide you through the site, while the Elev.io sidebar allows you to browse FAQs, check out upcoming events and workshops, and send and receive support straight from any page on our site. Also, the "It's So close, I can't watch it fail" mentality that we love about all or nothing crowdfunding. Then, refocus your efforts on replicating what is working best, saving time wasted on what you know isna€™t helping. These are the absolute most important times, so it makes sense that these key milestones don't coincide with everyone's christmas and new year's celebrations. A Melbourne writer and editor recognised the need for a magazine focusing on sexuality and gender and just launched her own.
And it all began with a Pozible campaign, during which Peter raised more than $8,000 of his modest $6,000 target.
How did you find the crowdfunding experience?It's really changed the way I think about funding my projects.
As the project progressed it become more and more important to remember my own aims and avoid being swept up in other people's agendas. But there were far more people who were happy to just chat about it, to find where we agree and where we don't. I usually ask them why we've changed to a policy of turning people away when previous generations of asylum seekers were welcomed. Even the most personal of projects can have a larger cause behind them - for instance, supporting the local arts scene, or being proactive and determined in achieving a lifelong dream.
And you have to believe that everyone who approaches you is a willing, able and ready buyer because if your mindset isn’t right, all the technique in the world won’t help you.
But Ryan Taft shows us why it is so important to continue a relationship with your customer after the sale is closed. He or she will check back on me multiple times while keeping my water or Arnold Palmer refilled. Neither do you want to be the hungover baboon who can barely string a coherent project update together. Start by taking your big overarching goal and break it down into actionable steps a€“ ita€™s less intimidating that way. For a long time I've wanted to undertake a project on this scale but I couldn't figure out how it might be possible.
Also, knowledge is power, but drink in moderation!You guessed it: alcohol lubricates your creativity, with the equivalent of two standard drinks serving to loosen up your braina€™s centre of conscious thought, the cerebral cortex. The truth is, even if you pride yourself on being the first of your friends to get on Facebook way back when, you could still be using social media totally wrong. Wea€™d post teaser photos of the print, and articles from online and slip the Pozible link in below.


Randall Maxwell, who brings his 35 years experience in Hollywood and Wilmington NC in the film industry to Nashville to direct this Nashville Operation. I asked the man in Bondi if he'd ever met a Muslim and he said 'I've seen 'em, but I can't say I've ever spoken to one,' and he smiled as if to admit he sounded a bit silly. For the same reason you called your ex 17 times in an hour or thought jumping off the roof into the pool was a great idea, hitting the juice puts your brain in a relaxed state that sparks new creative connections and ideas.
Your customer is the main character in the story, and when you solve their problem, you become their hero.
A A If you are one of those individuals who already have the professional experience necessary to produce quality films and television productions, now is the time to get your working resumes to us to be considered working for our company. A social media shout-out or thank you card is an awesome way to acknowledge peoplea€™s support. I think there are plenty of Australians who are like that, who've perhaps forgotten that it takes courage to combine.What's next for you?'Real Australians Say Welcome' will continue. You care less about whata€™s happening around you, which frees up your brain to wander into lightbulb territory.
The creators of this reward came up with a form of recognition that was interactive and unique.
In the next few weeks I'm going to pass the project over to everyone thata€™s supported it.
The downside is youa€™re less focused and your memory is impaired, so ita€™s difficult to buckle down and work.Enter coffee. You can find them in the Yellow Pages under the following headings: APPLIANCES, HOUSEHOLD, MAJORAPPLIANCES, PARTS AND SUPPLIESREFRIGERATORS, DOMESTICAPPLIANCES, HOUSEHOLD, REPAIR AND SERVICECall a few of them and ask if they are a repair service, or if they sell parts, or both. Coffee is the quiet workhorse that can help you execute that amazing idea your inebriated brain generated but was unable to complete because, you know, you were tipsy. The prescription medications Kelli uses to relieve her insecurities change both twins lives forever.Over the course of several years, Kellis drug dependency grows.
To let someone be an extra isn't a huge undertaking for the creators, but something so special for the supporter.
And if you still really want to be picked a€“ externally validated a€“ the odds increase considerably when youa€™ve shown you believe in your abilities enough to pick yourself.
Kelli comes close to dying several times from overdoses -- accidental and intentional -- leading to many stays in psychiatric facilities. You may want to scrawl down past the next several paragraphs, as they pertain to our professional training. Darla struggles to convince the doctors her twins irrational behavior started only after they began pumping her full of powerful anti-psychotic drugs.
The same applies to anyone interested in securing us for any of your professional production needs. They'll tell you it's too complicated, then in the same breath, "guide" you to their service department.
Not that you must come to work for us, as after training you will be more than qualified with professional training, as you will have actually worked on at least four real feature films in your chosen discipline that you can put on your resume, that you can practically chose the production company you want to work for anywhere in the US or abroad. The clipping itself doesna€™t cost the project a dime, but is incredibly unique and special for people committed to the venue and cause.One of our weirder campaigns was based around researching maggots for medical purposes. If they genuinely try to help you fix it yourself and you find that you can't fix the problem, they may be a really good place to look for service. Think about it if they sold you this book, then they're genuinely interested in helping do-it-yourselfers!When you go into the store, have ready your make, model and serial number from the nameplate of the fridge (not from some sticker inside the fridge). You may choose the discipline of acting, producing, directing, script & screen writing, editing, business of film making, basic film production, camera operator, director of photography, animation, any discipline within the collaborative art of film making. No doubt these one-of-a-kind pictures are still pinned to fridges, with an awesome story behind them.ExperienceSome rewards include supporters in the process of your project, or providing them with something to remember through a lived, real-time experience. These are conservative figures and take no considerations for attaching a star to this film in making the film a success.
This is a two year certificate program with the top 50% of our graduating class being offered a two year paid internship with our production company, giving you a working resume in your chosen discipline where you can continue working for Maxima Vision Films or choose practically any other production company within the US or abroad. However, we feel the very story is strong enough on its own merit to assure success of distribution of this film, especially considering the number of qualitydistribution outlets available to film makers today. This will be an incomplete model number, but it is better than nothing and it should be good enough to get most parts with. If all else fails, check the original papers that came with your fridge when it was new.
They were able to come up with an amazing and unique experience relevant to backers of their campaign.
We feel certain with the budget of this film being so low, and the quality of story being so good, there is no reason we cannot at least double an investors return on their investment, but quite likely to earn a substantial return.We cannot guarantee the financial success of this venture.
These workshops also get you working immediately with our professionals who are making movies each and every day. They should contain the model number SOMEWHERE. If you have absolutely NO information about the fridge anywhere, make sure you bring your old part to the parts store with you. These workshops can be either taken over weekends, camps, taken one day a week at 3 hour classes, or two days at 1 hour and half, both of which you will also be involved in a three hour workshop on the weekend at our production facilities.
Your project may not naturally lend itself to an ice-cream joy ride, but think - do you have access to anything or anyone who could help you craft an amazing experience for your supporters?The next project had the added benefit of star power, being a little bit famous usually helps when it comes to creating buzz about your cause.Dona€™t let not being in a well known Aussie alternative rock band stop you. Frankly, the overriding qualification for prospective investors in this or similar projects is that they must be fully accredited, and able to lose all or part of their investment, incurring no significant financial damage as a result of loss. That said, we can guarantee thatMaxima Visions Films and Productions has developed and sold compelling stories with universal relevance, and has assembled a team of production professionals who are completely dedicated to, and competent in,delivery of a high quality product.As entertainment appetites and accessibility grows, the industry is begging for high quality product to fill the ever-increasing demands. Throw a party for your top pledger - it pays off!There are plenty of ways you can allow people to be an ongoing part of what you make or do.
Given current worldwide economic conditions, the entertainment industry stands virtually alone as a growth industry. You could offer sponsorship or advertising opportunities, mates rates or insider updates for future projects. If you are an aspiring actor, you need to at the very least know how to prepare for a casting interview, as you only have one shot in this business to get it right!A Do you know how much work goes into the production of a film or television production?
This is an absolute in this business & like preparing you for a casting interview, these are all a part and included in any of our camps, workshops and classes.If you are an aspiring actor? Maxwell is going to be spending so much time here, to do a large amount of productions here in Texas, as opposed to traveling to either the east or west coast. Remember, a demo reel is just what the name implies, it is a demo of your acting abilities. It is a long, stiff-bristled brush especially made for knocking out massive wads of dust from your condenser grille.
I have seen jury-rigged bottle brushes and vacuums used, neither of which clean sufficiently. At your own school or church, we can even make available a after school program for the cost of basically any other after school program, but you are learning what you are passionate about, making movies.
Randall Maxwell will act as the Executive producer on any of these projects.This particular investment group has chosen to use the same success formula Dr. Each of these programs will ultimately produce a short student film that you may use on your resume for your chosen discipline, entered into competition with other Christian schools and churches in our upcoming 2015 film festival. Maxwell used back in his secular film production days, which is basically, production by the numbers.
What this means is simple; with the number of quality venues of distribution now available if one can keep a production fewer than 3 million dollars, one is practically assured to at least break even on a film, if the story has any merit what so ever. This means, they especially like projects where they spread their risk, that they simply match dollar for dollar of the projects budget. We are not interested in the number of times you have had an extra spot in a film, or even a speaking role in a student film at some film school.
It's true that diagnosing and repairing electrical circuits requires a bit more care than most operations, due to the danger of getting shocked. We do already have two projects which this investment group has expressed interest in producing in Texas.
As mentioned, we are as committed to quality product, films that will help to shape our culture positively, as we are to hiring as much local talents as possible. We are absolutely committed to producing such quality that in the near future that anyone who has any interest in producing a redemptive story idea, there is only one logical solution as to what company one is to come to for producing such a product, and that is Maxima Vision Films. Remember the rule in section 3-4 (1); while you are working on a circuit, energize the circuit only long enough to perform whatever test you're performing, then take the power back off it to perform the repair.
You will only need to be able to set the VOM onto the right scale, touch the test leads to the right place and read the meter. In using the VOM (Volt-Ohm Meter) for our purposes, the two test leads are always plugged into the "+" and "-" holes on the VOM.
We feel after viewing how serious we are about those talents we hire above, you will realize how serious we are in producing for you the most professional production money can buy.
During this scen her demmons rebel, crying out to her, it is them who are her friends, it is this pastor who is trying to manipulate her and take advantage of her. URGENT NEEDSAs already mentioned, in order for Maxima Visions Films to go past pre-production and go into actual production of films here in Texas, we have need of finding the talents needed to have at least two feature films going at any particular time. A A Come now to get involved in our celebration of our opening up our home office in Nashville, Tennessee.
For example, if there's a 50 setting and a 250 setting on the VAC dial, use the 250 scale, because 250 is the lowest setting over 120 volts. Touch the two test leads to the two metal contacts of a live power source, like a wall outlet or the terminals of the motor that you're testing for voltage. If one has read our home page, you will find we also have serious interest in developing a film school as well, and we might just find that Texas is the ideal place to have such a school.
Get involved now with a company who is committed to harnessing the power of the mediums of film and television to help shape our culture positively verses negatively, as Hollywood has for decades. Please see below the talents we are seeking immediately, and as you read through, please also consider if you would also like teaching on a collegiate level in our film school. It's derived from the word "continuous." In an electrical circuit, electricity has to flow from a power source back to that power source. You may also call our Executive Producer at (757) 636-8163 to discuss your experience and any ideas you may have with him. It should peg the meter all the way on the right side of the scale, towards "0" on the meter's "resistance" scale. If the meter does not read zero resistance, adjust the thumbwheel on the front of the VOM until it does read zero. At present, we are seriously seeking those who have a very similar look to the photos below, as we are seeking to do trailers for each of the above films immediately and need those who look like the photos below. If the heater's leads are still connected to something, you may get a reading through that something. For Sister Surrendered we need almost an identical match, as the actor who we are seeking is a twin sister to Darla above.
If there is still live power on the item you're testing for continuity, you will burn out your VOM in microseconds and possibly shock yourself. Touch the two test leads to the two bare wire ends or terminals of the heater.
In Rachels Grace we need a close look alike for Rachel at present age, and her as a child, a teen, then a 20 something. You can touch the ends of the wires and test leads with your hands if necessary to get better contact. Maxwell is also available in Texas to work as either a producer or consultant on any feature film production. He is also available to do most any kind of crew work, from script writing, producing, directing, and assisting in any phase of a film or television production.Dr. If there is GOOD continuity, the meter will move toward the right side of the scaleand steady on a reading.
Maxwell is also available to assist in teaching any area of film making;Are you interested in getting into film or television productions?
Maxwell is certified and qualified to teach or tutor in many areas, especially Script Writing for film and televisionand producing, and directing. If the meter moves only very little and stays towards the left side of the scale, that's BAD continuity; the heater is no good.
In a glass-tube or bare-element heater, you may be able to see the physical break in the heater element, just like you can in some light bulbs. If you are testing a switch or a thermostat, you will show little or no resistance (good continuity) when the switch or thermostat is closed, and NO continuity when the switch is open. We offer either group workshops or private lessons.Do you have a story idea that you think is hot for the time and need help in the development of the story into a feature film script or television script, and finally have it made into a feature film or television production?
If you do not, the switch is bad.3-3(c) AMMETERSAmmeters are a little bit more complex to explain without going into a lot of electrical theory. If you own an ammeter, you probably already know how to use it. If you don't, don't get one.
MaxwellI would sincerely love to help any young person aspiring to break into the entertainment industry in any way I can. The greater the current that's flowing through a wire, the greater the magnetic field it produces around the wire. Before being called to the ministry back in 1999, I had spent most all of my adult life, 20+ years in the secular film industry.
The ammeter simply measures this magnetic field, and thus the amount of current, flowing through the wire. I have witnessed firsthand what a corrupt industry it can be, so, I would love to be able to coach a young person in ways to avoid some of the costly mistakes I made when I was young.Back in 1999 when first called to ministry, I had actually thought I would never again be involved in the film industry, as I could not see how ministry and the film industry could co-exist, because of the very nature of the industry.
To determine continuity, for our purposes, we can simply isolate the component that we're testing (so we do not accidentally measure the current going through any other components) and see if there's any current flow. To use your ammeter, first make sure that it's on an appropriate scale (0 to 10 or 20 amps will do). Had it not been for my desire to return to school so that I could teach on a collegiate level what I had done all my life, I would have never come to the conclusion I have today, that we can actually use this medium to shape our culture positively. I came to realize that Satan has certainly used this most powerful medium to shape our culture to fit his agenda, so why couldnt we. I had wanted to teach, so I did not have to take funds out of this ministry I had been called to live on.While back in school seeking my degree I came to realize more and more, just how much power this medium has to impact.
I began to realize what more powerful medium could there be to at least share Gods message, to at least plant a seed to get a viewer to at least begin to seek truth, in hopes that they may find the real love Christ my Lord has for a hurting world. Turn the "energy saver" switch to the "economy" position to shut off the anti-sweat mullion heaters (See section 4-1.) Close the refrigerator door to make sure the lights are off. I hope to lead young film makers down the right paths, many of which I missed along the road during my secular days in film making. I hope to make such an impression that will inspire young people to realize that if they truly have some talent within the entertainment industry, that they at least owe it to our Lord to do it with all their heart for His ultimate glory!Talent & Model Management CompanyUn-Like so many other agencies! There may still be a tiny mullion heater energized in the butter conditioner or on the defrost drain pan, but the current that these heaters draw is negligible for our purposes (less than an amp). First and foremost, because our Talent and Model Management Company is actually married to our own production company, we will always strive to use as much of our own talents in our own productions as is possible to still keep the integrity of the production its self.
By using our own talent for our own productions, this gives our talents actual work, which they can add to their resume. If you don't, the defrost heater or terminating thermostat is probably defective.3-4 BASIC REPAIR AND SAFETY PRECAUTIONS1) Always de-energize (pull the plug or trip the breaker on) any refrigerator that you're disassembling. This of course makes an individual talent more marketable for us to sell to other production companies. If you need to re-energize the refrigerator to perform a test, make sure any bare wires or terminals are taped or insulated. It has a domino effect.We are now taking resumes, head shots, and portfolio shots from any aspiring actors or models that are aspiring to get involved in the entertainment industry. Energize the unit only long enough to perform whatever test you're performing, then disconnect the power again. 2) NEVER EVER chip or dig out ice from around the evaporator with a sharp instrument or knife. You WILL PROBABLY puncture the evaporator and you WILL PROBABLY end up buying a new refrigerator.
Maxwell is here on assignment with the ministry he has been called, we feel that the ideal would be to find a property that both Maxima Visions Films and Hope Retreats International, which is Dr. If you use a blow dryer, take care not to get water in it and shock yourself.Better yet, if you have the time and patience, leave the fridge open for a few hours and let the ice melt naturally. You can remove large, loose chunks of ice in the evaporator compartment by hand, but make sure there aren't any electrical wires frozen into the chunks of ice before you start pulling them. 3) Always re-install any removed duck seal, heat shields, styrofoam insulation, or panels that you remove to access anything.
They're there for a reason. 4) You may need to empty your fridge or freezer for an operation.
AS a part of the program for troubled youth, there is an element of a work program, thus making as many students as needed to help around the studios as far as assistant, general house- keeping and maintenance of the areas, keeping cost down. If you do not have another fridge (or a friend with one) to keep your food in, you can generally get by with an ice chest or a cardboard box insulated with towels for a short time.
We are also looking into working with the manufacturers of log homes and module homes, so as to use our facilities as model homes to use to market other homes in the area, thus bring in another source of income for the joint project. Never re-freeze meats; if they've already thawed, cook them and use them later. 5) If this manual advocates replacing a part, REPLACE IT!! The ministry is of course a non-profit venture as well, thus this could be used as an advantage in a joint venture to be able to write off most all losses.We have particular interest in both the production company and film school working as one identity.
There is a reason that it stopped you can bet on it and if you get it going and re-install it, you are running a very high risk that it will stop again. Secondly; A student intern makes for less expensive labor cost while benefiting the student at the same time, as the student can then put this on their professional resume as real work done.
To steal some of the thunder from the school page to demonstrate here the advantages of a student coming to our school verses a tradition college, we will add some of those benefits here.The greatest danger most of us face is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it. Many universities and film schools do a very good job in training their students in the art of film making, but then it is completely up to you to go out into this competitive world of film making to find your own job. Replace the part. 6) Refrigerator defrost problems may take a week or more to reappear if you don't fix the problem the first time. First words that come out of your prospective employers mouth is; What experience do you have?
That's how long it will take the evaporator to build up enough frost to block the airflow again. Well, if you are like most, you have never done any actual work on a real film set, other than the few simple student films you did with your class mates in college. After fixing a defrost problem, keep an eye out for signs of a recurrence for at least a week. The sooner you catch it, the less ice you'll have to melt. 7) You may stop the compressor from running using the defrost timer or cold control, by cutting off the power to the fridge, or simply by pulling the plug out of the wall. However, if you try to restart it within a few minutes, it may not start; you may hear buzzing and clicking noises.
Upon fulfilling that agreement you may be given a new contract or you may choose to go elsewhere, but at least now you will be going with a very real, producer, director, screen writer, actor or editors resume, and not just a resume stating all the things you did in film school.Because of the very nature of our school, we are only seeking the serious minded film makers, those who are willing to pay the price for excellence. If the system has not had enough time for the pressure within to equalize, there will be too much back pressure in the system for the compressor motor to overcome when trying to start. In fact, our tuition is less than practically any other film school, and if you are serious and you are in at least your top 50% of your graduating class and you do receive the two year contract, your education actually cost you nothing, as the amount of money you make on your contract for two years will pay you back your tuition and you will have actually earned money for getting educated.Unfortunately, many who go to college to receive a degree in film making spend so much more time in studying every other subject that is required to get a degree, so little time is ever available to truly learn the craft of film making.
Simply remove the power from the compressor for a few more minutes until the compressor will restart. 8) Do not lubricate any of the timers or motors mentioned in this manual.
This is not a school for those who have hopes of teaching film and television.By combining the school to the production company has many advantages to the production company as well. In a cold environment, oil will become more viscous and increasefriction, rather than decrease it. Many production companies during times when they themselves are not doing a production, the cost is the same and continues even in down time. With the school attached, there is always production going on.Finally, the source of income coming from tuition is a continuous source of income, even in down time in productions. The production company can also make these students available to other production companies who lease our facilities. Not necessarily because we feel this is the ideal place to produce feature films, but because there is a much needed service needed here is our main reason for being here. That service is, what our Executive Producer is here to accomplish.This whole area is in much need for a Christ centered resident recovery program for troubled youth.
Though this program is a much needed service and a perfect way for the Christian community to get involved in sharing the real love Christ our Lord has for a hurting world in a very practical way, if their church does not have a desire to get involved, they do not either. Unfortunately, so many of this Christian community are so involved in their own Churchs denominational agenda, and keeping their own Churchs mortgage paid, they do not have the time to devote to making this happen.In fact, all across America today, the average church spends 90% of their income in just paying their mortgage and administration cost, leaving very little for outside ministry. This is the ministry who will end up paying a large portion of the expenses to support this youth retreat. The vision of our parent mission leads and guides everything that we do, both at Hope Retreats and Maxima Visions films. Maxwell, Maxima Visions Films, and our investment group are so committed to making a success here in Texas. If they genuinely try to help you fix it yourself and you find that you can't fix the problem, they may be a really good place to look for service. Think about it if they sold you this book, then they're genuinely interested in helping do-it-yourselfers!When you go into the store, have ready your make, model and serial number from the nameplate of the fridge (not from some sticker inside the fridge).

Now, all the services offered at our other production facilities will be available to serve Tennessee. At present we have two major investment groups, one of which has already committed funding four feature films or television productions every year over the next five years. A Ask any professional in the film or television industry how difficult it is to obtain the funding for a feature film or television production. It's true that diagnosing and repairing electrical circuits requires a bit more care than most operations, due to the danger of getting shocked. No one in Nashville is even producing a film per year, let alone cranking out four feature films or television productions each and every year, not until now. If the heater's leads are still connected to something, you may get a reading through that something. The greater the current that's flowing through a wire, the greater the magnetic field it produces around the wire. That's how long it will take the evaporator to build up enough frost to block the airflow again.
