If you have kids, then you know the power of digital screens. The lights and sounds completely engross the little ones. The effect is similar in adults. You’ve probably walked through an airport seeing an entire group of people staring aimlessly at the news playing on one small television screen. The point is that videos completely capture an audience and Talk Fusion wants you to start using videos in your email marketing.
One of the reasons that videos work so well is unspoken communication. Think about it, when two people talk, the majority of communication is happening through body language. Well, you can’t include body language in the body of an email. A picture is static and can only communicate one message. But a video can encapsulate a lot of body language, allowing you to convey a much deeper message than your competitors.
The research shows that videos are worth 1.8 million words, accord to Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research. Pictures are only worth a thousand words and text is only worth its word count. The power of video lies in its ability to communicate more effectively through body language.
Videos are so captivating that potential customers are 20% more likely to open an email if they know a video is embedded in it. The depth of the communication that a video is capable of is compelling to any audience. And once that customer is inside the email, she is 2 to 3 times more likely to check out your website, known as a click-through rate. That rate jumps exponentially when a video is included in your email. But the end result is a 40% boost in overall sales from you email marketing campaign. You can’t argue with the numbers.
And to think that Talk Fusion’s founder, Bob Reina, discovered the power of video-email marketing back in the 90’s, when he first tried to send a video to his friends. America Online told him it couldn’t be done and he accepted the challenge. His friends loved the video and a business strategy was born, leading to the 8th largest internet content provider in the world.

Two decades ago Charles Koch wrote two unpublished papers detailing his political goals and motivations. Today these papers are the force behind some of the criticisms surrounding Charles Koch and his brother David. Almost ten years ago no one, including the Washington elite had even heard of these two multi billionaire brothers from Wichita, Kansas. What really put them on the political map was the Supreme Court’s ruling in the Citizens United vs FEC case. This ruling gave big corporations such as Koch Indistries, the right to donate huge sums of money to which ever political party they choose. Remember the old addage Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely. This decision opened the doorway to big businesses buying their way into the White House and Congress. What does this have to do with Charles Koch you may wonder?
According to an article written by Bill Moyers, he writes, “Far from being independent of the GOP, the network’s operatives and resources are closely intertwined with the Republican Party. Forging this symbiosis, we believe, has been the whole point, a deliberate, long-term strategy to move the Republican Party to the far right. Koch honchos do not aim to displace the GOP; they want to capture and use it as a tool to radically cut back American government.” Special Interest think tanks like the Cato Institute, which was founded by Charles Koch, look at the receptiveness of certain public policies. This than allows the Koch network to gauge the best way to gain poularity for their point of view.
Charles Koch has brought together an estimated five hundred wealthy families to make up his network. As a fraternal member of Beta Theta Pi from his days at M.I.T., this already established brotherhood gave Charles the connections to some very wealthy families. Each member of the network is responsible for donating at least $100,000 towards Koch approved organizations. This network than meets twice a year to listen to liberal speakers and discuss political think tank agendas.
Charles Koch is a well educated, philanthropic gentleman who spent the better part of his life making Koch Industries the second largest privately owned corporation in America. He holds bachelor, masters, and doctorate degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of technology in engineering. He has also donated millions to many higher education institutes around the country.
The fact remains there is a increasingly large portion of American multimillionaires and billionaire’s organizing into a conservative-minded, self-righteous grassroots movement to take charge of our government and politics. It is not just the Koch brothers, it also people like George Soros who have created a political battlefield within our country for their own political agendas. Its only a matter of time before it is no longer viably sustainable.

Solutions From Visual Search Industry For Better Recommendations
It is surprising to see the number of consumers that use online shopping these days are quite concerned about the types of recommendations that come up on their screens. According to an article from Live Mint, in an actual account from a regular online shopping consumer, we see how important these computer generated online shopping recommendations can be to keep a consumer interested in the online shopping experience.
Anupama Pasumarthy is the woman who gave the actual account in the Live Mint article. She fits the demographic that retailers from the fashion and lifestyle industries are looking for to keep their businesses growing and maintaining a high profit margin. The consumer is a woman who is 22 years old, and she is a college graduate. She enjoys finding clothing and shoes when she shops online. However, she has some trouble finding the right sizes, so she started leaving the online shopping experience behind in search of products from actual stores. She was also very upset about the recommendations that were coming her way via the online shops she was visiting. She claimed that the stuff that the online shops were recommending was not similar to what she would normally buy. This experience is typical of many consumers in her demographic.
In order to keep people interested in online shopping, something had to be done. This is, perhaps, the best thing that visual search companies have added to the online shopping experience. Companies, like Slyce, have certainly made the user experience easier than ever, and it seems to be more enjoyable. The user logs on to Slyce via an application, and the user never really needs to worry about keyword searches. They have the option to search for keywords, but the bulk of users who use Slyce are using it to search via image recognition.
Slyce also offers up a steady stream of reliable recommendations to users. Slyce has a feature that is specifically designed to pick up on user interests. This feature is called Slyce Link. They have AI technology working in tandem with customer care workers to provide the most accurate and on point recommendations for consumers who are looking to purchase any product that they can find in their environment or on print in front of them.
Michael Jackson still has an enormous fan base. His music continues to sell in almost every corner of the world. Jackson is a music legend. He has taken his rightful seat next to Elvis Presley, The Big Bopper, Whitney Houston and Richie Valens. All of those musical geniuses died too soon. Fans were left with the music and the memories of those legends, but some of those fans want more of Michael Jackson, and Sergio Cortes gives Michael to them.
Sergio Cortes has been called the top Michael Jackson impersonator in the world by the online magazine R7.com. Fans around the world agree. Sergio Cortes not only looks like Jackson, but he becomes Jackson on stage. The 44-year-old Spaniard has been developing his Jackson impersonation for more than 30 years, and the result is nothing short of amazing. Sergio walks, talks and sings like Michael. After a Cortes performance ends, the audience wants more. They want more Michael and Cortes usually gives his audiences what they want.
Brazil is Sergio’s country now. Brazilians can’t get enough of Sergio Cortes. Sergio has more than 17,000 Twitter followers, and he doesn’t disappoint when he posts a tweet about something Michael. His fans ask him how he does what he does, and the likeable Cortes tells them exactly how he becomes Michael on stage.
Sergio believes there’s a part of Jackson with him when he is impersonating the music legend. Michael seems to be listening and watching as Cortes moon walks across the stage. Sergio does the famous hat tip, and white glove grab that made Jackson a one-of-a-kind performer and audiences go wild.
There is more to a Cortes performance than the impersonation. Sergio brings subtle elements of his own personality into his performance in order for audiences to know there was only one Michael Jackson. Cortes says his impersonation of Jackson has more to do with honouring the musical giant than trying to become exactly like him. But audiences do say he looks and acts exactly like Jackson.
There are many Michael Jackson impersonators in the world. Most of them do a good job bringing parts of Jackson back to life. But Cortes brings all of Michael Jackson back to like according to Sergio’s Facebook followers.
Sergio entertains audiences all over the world. His show in Italy brought the house down, and a recent performance in Madrid left the audience spellbound by all things “MJ.” Impersonating is an art form and Sergio Cortes is a master artist. Even though he has been performing as Michael since he was a teenage, it never gets old. He knows Michael is watching and smiling as he performs the moves and the music that influenced several generations.
