Celebrate on a Cruise

If you are someone who loves the ocean, what better way to bring in your 40th birthday than by celebrating on a cruise. You can make it a private affair by inviting a few close friends and family, or make it a lavish event by inviting a lot of friends and acquaintances.

Hire a Band

Hire a local band to perform your favorite songs if music is what moves you. You and your guests can enjoy the excitement of a live concert. As the birthday girl/boy, you could join the band in singing a few songs to live out your dreams of being a rock star as well!

Get Away From City Life

You can choose to spend your birthday in a calmer, quieter way. Plan a trip to a nearby national park, or go camping with your friends. It would be an interesting way to celebrate and will give you a chance to reconnect with nature. You could also go for a rejuvenating trekking experience.

Try Some Adventure Sports

If you are an adventure freak, trying some adventure sports on your birthday would be an exciting way to enjoy your birthday with family and friends. However, since it is you are 40, make sure you are in good physical shape to undertake activities, like para-sailing, skydiving, river-rafting, hang gliding, scuba diving, rock climbing, and more.

Reflect on Your Life and Work

You can always choose to take the day off and spend time alone. Indulge in activities that you enjoy and which help you relax. It could be reading, eating, cooking, etc. Take the time to think about your life, to count your blessings and think about where you would want your life to head now.

Celebrate with the Less Privileged

Having a party at an orphanage, or an old age home, would help brighten up other people’s day as well. You can organize a lunch, or a tea party and hire some clowns or a magician to ensure that the day is filled with laughter. You could also organize games that everyone can enjoy together.

You can adapt any of the above ideas to suit your budget and preferences in terms of the people you want to celebrate with. Turning 40 is an important milestone in your life. By this time, you have seen and experienced a lot of things. So it should definitely be a time to celebrate. It’s your day, and you can choose to fill the day with excitement and thrills or decide to relax.

How to Use Emojis in Social Media Marketing

Every year emojis are becoming more popular and used more every single day. On average, there are over 60 Million emojis sent on Facebook alone every day. The numbers are not just increasing in personal daily use but in business marketing communications. That’s why we think it’s important to talk about how to use emojis in social media marketing to provide value and strategy as small business owners and entrepreneurs.

How to Use Emojis in Social Media Marketing

You may have heard Chevrolet doing an entire press release in emoji  a couple of years ago. Yes, it was crazy and it was amazing because they opened up marketers eyes to what perhaps could be a means of communication. They really didn’t know how it was going to be received by their customers and they wanted to reach the Millennial generation of their client base. They did issue a decoder because not too many people understood the release, even the Millennials.

With that in mind, there are some ways when not to use emojis in marketing campaigns, especially when it’s only going to confuse a customer.

First Tip: Will the emoji make a positive or negative impact?

Be certain the emoji makes complete sense to your message.

Sometimes in social media, posts can be taken very differently on the other end of the message. An emoji can make the messaging even worse if not used right. Also the type of brand your business or industry is in plays a significant role. When Hillary Clinton tweeted a poll on student loan debt and asked voters to respond in 3 emojis or less, the voters were outraged and felt condescended. It was a very serious topic that was worth a discussion. The emoji inquiry was not cool!

Here’s a better use of emoji usage from Meghan Monaghan:

meghan's tweet

Meghan is so awesome she has an emoji in her Twitter username! She uses 3 positive emojis in her retweet. Not sure what they mean? You can always double check the , the emoji encyclopedia. What’s great about the emojipedia is that it gives you the definition along with the other emoji symbols for different platforms. Each platform has a variation of the same emoji.

Not only Meghan is giving us praise in her comment but her emojis lend a bit more happiness and encouragement.

Will the emoji provide a positive or negative impact_

Second Tip: Don’t force the emoji!

The only way emoji doesn’t seem like an alien language is to use it on a daily basis, so it doesn’t seem so foreign when you do use it for business. A smiley face won’t hurt when you’re making a positive comment or when you’re thanking someone. It will become a natural form of your social media chatting. There’s no way to get away from it unless you’re in an industry that absolutely would see no benefit in speaking to clients or customers in emoji language such as politicians or government institutions.

If you’re struggling with the type of emoji you should enter next to a comment, then it’s being forced and you shouldn’t use it. It should feel as natural as your facial expression. For example, you see a delicious chocolate cake – instant response: YUM!  (No, my tongue doesn’t usually stick out like that. Ok… sometimes.)

Same thing goes with customer inquiries about a product with a delayed response through messaging: Thank you for your interest in our product! We’ll be with you shortly. 

The smiley face softens the delay and gives a personal customer service touch.

Third Tip: Use the Proper Emoji for your Brand and Platform

Some emojis will not be wise to use for your brand and must be careful on specific social media platforms. Be sure you know the meaning of the emoji that you are about to use even if it seems harmless. Your emoji may be walking a fine line to slang and lingo to dangerous profanity when all you want to do is promote your local farmers market. Just saying… peaches and eggplants are not as harmless as they seem. Look it up in the emojipedia if you don’t already know their meanings!

Also for certain industries blowing kiss faces () may seem improper but in the beauty/health/ feminine industries, they throw kisses at everyone like, “Thank you, sweetie! MUAH! ” It’s completely fine.

Don’t even think about doing that in the tech/marketing / financial industries. No, I don’t think it would go over well.

Emojis are most popular on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Google+. Emojis are a BIG NO on LinkedIn. LinkedIn users get very annoyed with anything that looks remotely unprofessional. If you’re not sure which emojis to use, always stick with positive expressions such as the smiley face, clapping hands, raised hands, thumbs up, etc.

Using more than 4 emojis can be excessive, try not to use more than 4 unless you have a specific campaign like Bud Light’s iconic fourth of July emoji tweet.

Fourth Tip:  Create Images with Emojis

People tend to associate brands and companies that use emojis as fun and relatable, according to an Appboy study. If you use emojis according to your brand and become knowledgeable in their meanings they can be of benefit. Rather than using emojis in comments and messaging, images with emojis can quickly become a favorite.

We’ve teamed up with EmojiOne so you can create images with emojis directly in Stencil.

No need to upload your own emojis! (Sorry, Marie.)

Create real-time marketing images with fun emojis to promote holidays or trending hashtags. Here’s one we created for the Solar Eclipse:

That was fun!

What ways will you use emojis in social media marketing?

Sometimes it seems emojis are its own language but you can either embrace the rise of the emoji culture or dismiss it. Depending on how it fits into your brand you may find some fun emojis that you can typically use and apply them with your daily commenting or messaging. If you’re feeling a bit sassier and want to integrate them more into your visual marketing, you can use them in thank you messages in your tweets or other social media posts.

The possibilities are limitless! It’s up to you on how creative you want to get in your social media campaigns. Remember these tips when using emojis:

  1. Is the emoji you’re about to use going to make a positive or negative impact?
  2. Are you forcing yourself to use or find an emoji that you “think” would work? Don’t do it.
  3. Use the proper emoji for your brand. Remember saying, “You’re a .” to a client may not be appreciated.

Overall have fun using emojis! ✌️

Let us know in the comments how you like to use emojis.

Christmas party ideas 2017 – From making an entrance to dodgy conversation topics, we reveal ten tips for how to be popular at parties

LIKE it or loathe it, party season has arrived.

Cue a social calendar made up of family gatherings, office parties and drinks at multiple bars. Then there are those events you’re invited to as a “plus one” when you have mingle with strangers.

Body language expert Judi James shares tips for how to feel confident over the festive party season

But how do you navigate a party when socialising doesn’t come naturally?

Here, body language expert JUDI JAMES reveals her top ten tips that are guaranteed to make everyone at the festive bash warm to you . . .

1 — Make a great entrance

Getty – Contributor

Hit the ground running and walk into the party sending out all the right signals

“First impressions count” is a phrase we’ve all heard countless times – and that’s because it is so true.

So hit the ground running and walk into the party sending out all the right signals.

Make sure you pull up to full height, push your shoulders back and down, breathe out gently and imagine you’re preparing to meet your best friend so your facial muscles relax into an authentic-looking smile.

Confidence speaks volumes.

2 — Use the eye connect

Getty – Contributor

Catching others’ eyes from across the room of the Christmas party is key to success

Pause, smile and scan the room immediately.

Catching others’ eyes from across the room announces that you’re friendly, positive and approachable and makes people want to talk to you.

Don’t overdo the smile though, as too much teeth-baring can look aggressive.

3 — Avoid distractions

Getty – Contributor

Try to avoid distractions like using your phone at your Christmas party

Keep your phone out of sight. Checking or sending texts while you chat is a no-no.

Even having it on show means the phone will inevitably light up at some point.

Never scan the room with your eyes while you’re listening to someone talk either and watch all those fiddling gestures too as they will make you look bored.

4 — Keep moving

Getty – Contributor

It’s good to keep moving and dance the night away, says body language expert

Take enough time to grab a drink then walk up to the nearest group and join in. The longer you pause before mingling the harder you’ll find it to break the ice.

Groups of three or more are the easiest to break into. Though you may be tempted to go for the loner, remember they could be hard work.

Look for the biggest gap to step into but don’t interrupt the speaker if they’re mid-flow.

Instead nod briefly to the people standing on either side of you before subtly mirroring the group’s body language to ingratiate silently. When the speaker finishes their story, you can quickly introduce yourself.

5 — Don’t hover

Getty – Contributor

Try not to hover for too long and feel awkward at your Christmas party

If the group doesn’t part to let you in, don’t pause for longer than three seconds before waving to someone across the room and walking off.

Or walk confidently to the bar, it’s a better face-saver than slinking off miserably.

6 — Get greeting rituals right

If it’s a formal party, keep your right hand free for handshakes.

Give a firm shake using eye contact, and no limp hands, knuckle-crunchers or damp sweaty palms.

If you’re cheek-kissing, touch the other person lightly on the shoulders to help gently steer and touch right cheek to right cheek but no lip-to-cheek touching.

When guests tell you their name use it once to help you remember it.

People love people who remember them and call them by name.

7 — Perfect your small talk

Getty – Contributor

Perfect your small talk and have a good natter

Spend time before the party checking out good, fun subjects for small-talk.

A quick scan through the papers should help but keep off controversial subjects like Brexit. Avoid ego-centric conversations, too.

Ask open questions and focus on getting the other person to tell you more about themselves rather than bringing the conversation back to yourself.

Things like: “How did you get into your line of work?” rather than: “Do you like your job?”

8 — Use active listening signals

Everyone likes a good listener. Face the speaker front-on and use lots of eye contact as you listen.

Nod as well to ensure you don’t look as though you’re staring and allow your facial expression to respond to their conversation.

Raising your eyebrows in surprise can look more genuine than saying: “Oh that sounds really interesting,” which often sounds fake.

9 — Hold your drink at rib height

Getty – Contributor

Hold your drink at rib height and try not to cross your arms at parties

Any higher and it looks like a barrier and any lower will signal disinterest.

Never stand with your arms folded or your legs crossed at the ankles. Nothing says “keep away” more than these two barriers.

If you’re carrying a bag, try to tuck it under one arm rather than hugging it to your torso so your body suggests you are open to conversation.

10 — Mirror to create rapport

When you’re chatting to another guest, subtly mirror their pace, style of movement and speech.
Subconscious mirroring happens naturally when we’re with people we like so your own likeability quota will soon rise when you fast-track the process.
