In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.center_img It won’t come as news to you that a handful of British stocks are receiving a lot attention right now. In fact, on Monday, the two most traded stocks on the Hargreaves Lansdown investment platform were Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) and International Consolidated Airlines Group (LSE: IAG).The two companies’ share prices rose sharply at the beginning of the week and have performed well over the last month. As a matter of fact, it’s been a great month for the FTSE 100, which surged on the back of positive vaccine news.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…With that in mind, I’m going to take a look at the investment case for these two companies in order to determine whether they could make for savvy investments.Rolls-Royce: Light at the end of the tunnel?It’s not difficult to see why the Rolls-Royce share price has tumbled in 2020. The impact of Covid-19 on businesses operations has been devastating. For example, the company relies heavily on a healthy aviation industry, which is a major source of revenue. As such, a substantial lack of customers ordering new engines and servicing current ones has been a major blow.Combined with hefty fixed costs from equipment and storage, the lack of routine operations has decimated finances. What’s more, analysts expect a net loss of around £2.6bn this year.That said, Rolls-Royce has taken steps to improve its financial outlook. For instance, the £2bn raised from a recent rights issue will provide some relief to the company’s balance sheet. Furthermore, with defence spending likely to remain robust, the group’s defence contracts could prove to be a lifesaver.Ultimately, despite a vastly improved outlook, I’m not sure Rolls-Royce shares are a wise long-term investment. Don’t get me wrong, I think there’s definitely upside potential over the short term. Nevertheless, I’m wary of the damaging long-term impacts caused by Covid-19 that could leave the business sapped of its former glory.IAG: Plenty of share price recovery potentialWith the tourism industry in tatters thanks to international lockdowns and Covid-19 travel restrictions, you’d be forgiven for thinking airline stocks should be the last place to invest money. That said, thanks to a vastly improving outlook, I don’t think they should be automatically overlooked.In my view, that’s particularly the case for companies such as IAG. The group, which owns British Airways and Iberia, watched its share price crash 70% in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak. Since then, despite a recent sharp rise, the shares still remain down by around 34% since the beginning of 2020.Despite bleeding cash as a result of a vastly reduced operating capacity, IAG boasts a large capital reserve. Additionally, the company has just completed a rights issue, which provided significant liquidity. All eyes will now be on whether IAG can have a profitable summer in 2021, which to some extent depends on an improved coronavirus outlook.Ultimately, the group remains in a far better position than many of its peers. Moreover, my gut feeling is that IAG could provide some serious long-term share price gains, provided the landscape continues to improve. As such, even at today’s valuation, I think the shares offer plenty of value for money.

The Patriots have won four Super Bowls, all of them with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick at the helm.2. This is only Atlanta’s second trip to the Super Bowl, and they’ve never won.3. The Patriots have been to the Super Bowl nine times, which is an NFL record.4. They have won four times, which is not a record.5. That belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers, who have won six.6. Tom Brady has been to seven Super Bowls, the most trips by any single player. He has been in the NFL for 17 years, and may actually be immortal.7. The Patriots were penalized this year as a result of “Deflategate,” the controversy stemming from the 2015 season that ended with the Patriots winning Super Bowl IL. Please don’t make us explain it again, but the upshot was Tom Brady was suspended the first four games of this season.8. Shockingly, people are pretty tired of seeing the Patriots win. According to one poll, more than half the country is rooting for a Falcons victory.9. In fact, a lot of fans have been comparing this Super Bowl to the plot of “Star Wars,” with the Falcons being the upstart “rebels” and the Patriots being the reigning “empire.” This is not a favorable comparison for the Patriots, but when you have four rings already, you have to deal with a little flak sometimes.

The minefield of mobile marketing for charities

first_imgChoosing The AgencyMany agencies specialise in mobile marketing, providing the tools and techniques to “roll out a really successful campaign.” Some focus on one technology, such as barcodes, and others offer complete mobile data services (since a campaign often involves many elements). There are agencies that are restricted to UK reach while others have the experience to go Pan-European. Many agencies specialise in providing “content” such as mobile TV and some provide the tools and technology for a DIY campaign – where marketing departments can use the agency’s platform to set everything up and check results during a campaign. This is an extremely popular option for many of Incentivated’s clients.So, with all this choice and all this expertise, which do you choose and how do you begin your campaign? What are the golden rules?This is a question I have been asked many times, and my answer is always the same.A Mobile Marketing agency should be prepared to make speculative pitches, in other words the company should supply the materials for an advertising agency to present to their client as part of a marketing campaign. Including live demos of the concept or similar. Choose an agency that has read and digested the Privacy & Electronic Communications Regulations (2003) as well as the Data Protection Act. The soft opt-in needs to be understood carefully and opt-outs handled right. The agency should also confirm that consumer data does not leave the EU (for DPA reasons) and that messaging is direct to UK networks (if a UK campaign) for practical reasons (delivery receipts, instantaneous messaging and guaranteed delivery. Use an agency that, like Incentivated, has all the mobile data services under one roof (SMS, PSMS, short-codes, WAP Push, Mobile Internet sites, Location Based Services) or has a proven track record in project managing suppliers if bringing in other patented technologies/hardware such as 2D barcodes and bluetooth broadcasting. If you are using existing customer lists your agency should be able to clean the database before the campaign. It should be able to recognises the type of mobile a consumer is using and serve content that will work on the handset/network combination. A good agency should know when to charge and when not (including how much) and be prepared to estimate response rates for the campaign and corresponding return on investment (ROI).Campaign Roll-outSo, now you’ve selected your agency and you’re ready to communicate with your market, what do you do next? Follow this advice and you can’t go far wrong:• Keep your text messages simple and use plain English• Include a call to action in the message by way of a telephone number, website or WAP site link• Avoid over zealous use of exclamation marks and capitalisation• Do not put spaces in telephones numbers but include them as a single number so they can be dialled easily from within the message• Always reply instantaneously when someone sends your organisation a text• Mine your data to ensure messages are relevant and thereby avoid excessive messaging• Plan your communications in advance and keep a record of what you have offered to whom• Offer a mobile option alongside other response methods advertised in traditional media – let the consumer choose• Promote the mobile option on all marketing communications to reinforce the option• Consider an incentive for choosing the mobile channel, especially if your operational (acquisition/service) costs are reduced through this medium• Allow opt-outs via text, web and through your ‘front desk’ and highlight these clearly• Train all customer-facing staff in your permission/privacy policy including how to manually record of opt-outs• Clean your database after three broadcasts (using delivery receipts) or if a large campaign then in advance (using our network look-up product)So, don’t be put off by the minefield of mobile marketing agencies. Remember, mobile marketing is highly effective, direct and immediate – and offers superb results. Follow the rules before engaging in any campaign and reap the rewards.Jonathan Bass is the managing Director of Incentivated, the mobile marketing agency that provides software for simple integrated marketing activities and campaign management services. Incentivated’s solutions are used by leading brands to improve the effectiveness of communication between organisations and consumers and to increase ROI through the mobile medium. Howard Lake | 25 November 2005 | News Jonathan Bass, Managing Director of Incentivated, shares his views on mobile marketing for charities.Mobile is proving to be one of the most effective channels for charities to communicate directly with the public. It’s instant, targeted and gets results. SMS and MMS messaging delivers anything from event news, voting channels and logo’d wallpapers to text and win competitions and campaign support platforms. More charity organisations are turning to mobile, and it’s no longer seen as something just for the youth market. The sector is growing, and in many cases we’ve only just scratched the surface. The female market for example has massive potential and is a definite growth area and one to watch in 2006.

first_imgprint[iframe src=”https://player.vimeo.com/video/194422141″ width=”100%” height=”480″ frameborder=”0″ webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen allowfullscreen align=”center”]A new literacy initiative is aimed at students in the Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD).The 100×25 program’s goal is to have 100 percent of third graders reading at or above grade level by the year 2025.A study done at the American Educational Research Association has found that third grade literacy rates are a predictor for graduation rates. There are currently 30 percent of third graders reading at or above grade level in FWISD, said Arcelia Leon, the executive director of literacy.“It was a pretty clear indicator we needed to do something,” Leon said.[iframe width=’100%’ height=’345′ frameborder=’0′ src=’http://easynotecards.com/embed_set/70133′]The program is designed to impact all FWISD schools, but mainly focuses on elementary schools. 100×25 also relies on partnerships throughout the community through teacher trainings, volunteers and resource alignment.Leon said the biggest component to her is the teacher trainings.“I think the silver bullet is going to be a great teacher, a well-trained teacher in every classroom,” Leon said.Pat Templer, a volunteer reader for Kids Hope USA, said she enjoys volunteering with kids in the Fort Worth area.Templer has been volunteering for two years. Last year she was at Rivertree Academy. This year she is at both Rivertree Academy and South Hi Mount Elementary School.“I love to sit side-by-side with the students and hear them read a story and be excited about it,” Templer said.Volunteers for the 100×25 program have a choice of what type of session they wish to complete with students.Level one training focuses on relational strategies, such as reading aloud to children. Level two training focuses more on structured strategies, such as learning phrases instead of words in isolation.[xyz-ihs snippet=”tobiqzzr1″]Templer said she thinks others will benefit from their time reading to children.“It’s such an enjoyable time to just forget the cares of the day and come in and read with a student,” Templer said. “But more importantly, I think it’s important for us as individuals to try and build up the community and make better citizens.”Leon agrees.“With volunteerism, it’s really as effective as the training, the opportunity and the commitment of the volunteer,” she said.The last component of the 100×25 literacy initiative comes from partnerships across the community.Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price, local churches and other reading volunteer programs have partnered up with FWISD to align resources.“It takes all your arrows pointing in the right direction,” Leon said. “It takes this collective mindset – everyone being on the same page – to have an impact on student learning and teacher progress.”The 100×25 initiative has trained ten volunteers currently and is open to forming more relationships with businesses and community members across Fort Worth.[xyz-ihs snippet=”TOBILITERACY”] Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature Tobi is a senior journalism major from Lewisville, Texas.
