Is there a Way to Promote Your Online or Offline Business in a Manner that Fills You and Your New and Loyal Customers with Happiness?

“To be happy, or not to be happy, that is the question.”

Being happy is not an easy state of being for many of us to achieve. And we are told by self-help gurus and well-intentioned friends and family members that you cannot try to become happier because it is not a destination, it is a state of “being.” Although it is not so clear how to “Be,” it does appear to have something to do with peace, quiet of mind as well as the ever-important feeling of gratitude for who you are and for people and things in your life. They often go on to say that happiness is not something you can pursue, even though the pursuit of it was vouched for in that American document from years ago.

But Let Us Look at the Context of this Moment in Time

We live in a world in which Americans and our allies are currently trapped in a country they do not want to be, as well as there are fires out of control in the U.S., storms, hurricanes, flooding and the Covid Variant Delta. And in two short days it will be the anniversary of one of the most horrific events ever both in actuality as well as symbolically, and one of great loss. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers to all the families and friends who have lost loved ones. And for those who are worried about the present and the future.

Not at this Time

This is not the right time for some messages but is spot on for the content of of communications. We ask that today and over the next few days that you tell the ones you love that you do, as well as pass along your own unique message of hope and compassion to as many people as you can.

In Closing

As you can see, what started out as us revealing a way we are working on to combine marketing with happiness, how not to pursue it but that it is a state of mind you do not consciously search for but picks when it will come to you. The choice to change the focus of this post midway, has made me for one, more happy.

Yianni Stamas Unpacks the Meaning Behind Emmett Kelly Day

Kelly was the First

Emmett Kelly

When I was a 11 years old while living in Amherst (pronounced “Amerst” not “AmHerst) Massachusetts, one of my most favorite thing do to was to go to Jones Library and research topics I was interested in. “Magic” was by far my most explored topic, though, a branch of the art of magic is clowning. I would read with great interest about a very special clown named Emmett Kelly.

Tattered Clothing

That is why today is meaningful for me. Emmett Kelly was a pioneer and the first clown to come up with a sad clown persona. He had a frown and was and carried a stick on his shoulder with a bag hanging from it. He also wore slightly tattered clothing.

The Fight

Emmett Kelly created an original and impactful character in the art of clowning. This portrayal was developed during a time when a goofy buffoon with a big painted on smile was the norm. Kelly went right up against this and at first was not taken seriously.

American Ingenuity

I bring up Emmett Kelly’s creation here USA Online Business not only because December 9th is Emmett Kelly Day, but also because this character is a terrific example of innovation and the sometimes challenging process of pushing through expectations to something new. Business owners, I believe, should always be pushing to be one step ahead in their chosen vocation. Thanks Emmet Kelly for being a great example of American ingenuity!

The Way that Business Promotion is Changing in the New Age

One Marketing Procedure for Two Totally Different Demographics?

In the old days the young and the old both appear to be completely different demographics based on when they were born, what they’ve experienced and what their buying habits are. The Stamas Bros are looking into these differences closely and are potentially revealing that maybe both age groups are more alike than not. The old and the young surely have different ways of coping, but could the same marketing procedures and content be used on both?

Both Want What the Other Has

This could be a revolution in marketing or it could be a big mistake. But one cannot argue with the points that the Stamas Bros make that maybe the young want to be wise like the old. And maybe the old desire to have the energy of the young?!

Conclusions?

Even the fact that this is being written about in a blog is showing that something is up. More to come!
