Reason why Chris Martin is angry on this new Coldplay single

Coldplay has a new upcoming album, Everyday Life, out Nov 22rd. 

And on one of their promo pieces (below video) on Youtube, one commenter spotted a bit of anger in the tone of the track. 

Jesse Lee Humphry

You know, the more I listen to this, the more I think that this is Chris Martin angry. There's a steady minor key throughout the song, which usually denotes negative feelings. But it feels angsty here. It feels...tense. So we get to that long sax part, and then the "music is the weapon" section, and it builds and builds. And then, chordally, it explodes. It spills over. There's a release with major chords. It feels like the musical tension that built up is finally being channeled. And then, way in the background, you hear Chris Martin, for only the second time ever on any Coldplay track, curse. "Same fucking blood". It sounds like anger. Frustration. Why are we fighting each other? How dare we? How long must this go on? And it's over as quickly as it began.

 

We don't know for certain if his analysis is correct, but we love the track any way, and can't wait for the full album to be released....

New WhatsApp group for local vendors in Dominica

Today 29th Oct, 2019 - Budgeat has launched a new WhatsApp Group for local Businesses in Dominica to promote their products. And for individuals both in Dominica and abroad to discover interesting local items for sale.

The new WhatsApp Group is an initiative of Budgeat to foster a more personal interaction between Buyer and Seller. 

In 2019 Social Commerce is on the rise  - 

30% of online shoppers say they would be likely to make a purchase from a social media network like FacebookPinterestInstagram, Twitter or Snapchat.

and -

Social Media Messenger sales are massively outperforming the current ROI champion of email & other traditional methods.

It only makes sense then to facilitate the purchase journey for a customer. A Brand/Business needs to be where the customer is most active and engaged. And for Dominica, that's via WhatsApp.

 

You can join the new WhatsApp Group >> here.

Everone is in Tech, so why not the church?

The Vatican, in the Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network recently announced a wearable fitness-type smart device, but for praying the rosary. 

I wish I was making this up but it's a real product. The official Vatican news website describes it as

The Click To Pray eRosary is an interactive, smart and app-driven wearable device that serves as a tool for learning how to pray the rosary for peace in the world. It can be worn as a bracelet and is activated by making the sign of the cross.

Aimed at the peripheral frontiers of the digital world where the young people dwell, the Click To Pray eRosary serves as a technology-based teaching tool to help young people pray the Rosary for peace and to contemplate the Gospel.  The project brings together the best of the Church’s spiritual tradition and the latest advances of the technological world.

 

The intentions here seem good, but I am a bit skeptical. What do you guys think, would you wear a smart rosary device to help you pray more?

Leverage your WhatsApp Status To Sell More Products

 

How To Leverage your WhatsApp Status To Sell More Products

 

In today’s market, because of stiff competition everywhere, social Sellers are looking for new ways to market and sell their products. There are lots of social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. Where you can market and sell products on social media. But those platforms are filled with a high amount of competing products and most are not properly designed for e-commerce. 

 

One such app that is used by millions of SMBs around the whole and wasn't designed for e-commerce is WhatsApp, a platform that makes you reach out to your customers on a one-on-one basis. WhatsApp has a feature called Status that enables you to post products during a 24hr window, for everyone on your contact list to see.  There are other ways you can advertise your products on Status, like using an external link to your products which you can then promote and share with friends, customers, or even groups on WhatsApp. Doing this yourself is fine, but because you may want to be more professional in your branding, you might want to use a third-party service to help you with the product presentation, payments, etc.

Budgeat seller is a sleek new mobile app that connects directly to WhatsApp and provides Sellers with advanced e-commerce features.

 

Below are a few advantages of using WhatsApp Status to boost sales:

 

Post your products to Status

The WhatsApp Status feature allows you to post a picture of your product for your contacts to view and engage with. The things you post on your Status are available for 24hrs. This way, people who are interested in your product can always send you a message.

But the 24hr limit means that you need to post the same content all the time for a potential customer to buy. Budgeat Seller solves this problem by providing you with a product catalog page that showcases your items for sale and includes a "Buy Now" button, with your preferred payment service. Along with additional e-commerce options for easy impulse purchases.

 

Keep a strong Social presence

45% of In-store consumers turn to mobile social platforms to influence their buying decisions. Being consistent on WhatsApp Status with your business is a guaranteed way of acquiring new customers.

 

 Offer exclusive deals

When something is exclusive, not everyone can have it, and by nature, people want what they can’t have. This simple psychological phenomenon attract more buying customers to your business on WhatsApp. And at the end of the day, it increases sales.

 

Promote products with a link

By sharing a clickable link to your product catalog, with a third-party tool like Budgeat Seller, you provide ease of access to your product line. This further improves the buying process to customers, as they can easily navigate to your page to view more details about your products.

 

Take advantage of the WhatsApp Status feature today, with our third-party tool, Budgeat Seller to improve sales to your Business.
