know each other while  Aaden in Nairobi.

The two felt they got along and could communicate well and they continued to talk when Aaden returned to Australia. After a couple of months, Aaden travelled to Nairobi again to meet with Magac and arranged for both parents to meet so they could discuss about marriage.

Due to the fact that Magac is a refugee in Kenya and there was a lot of restriction in getting official documents. Magac applied for a Kenyan police clearance with the help of a local resident and it turned out the police clearance she received was a bogus document.

The application was at the urged of getting refused, but our migration agent always advocate for the clients and wrote a detailed submission in respond to natural justice.

Our agent also made contact to local commissioner of Refugee Affairs to find out how the applicant could get the required documentation. It was a difficult process, but we did not give up on the client.

After a long 18 months, Magac’s visa was finally granted and the couple couldn’t be happier. At ACM we are proud to say we have always thrive to advocate for our clients in all circumstances.

The best way to follow up with a sales lead is with email. Follow up email campaigns can be automated, set to send out different messages over a period of time after someone enters the sales funnel. These emails can promote discounted offers, contain whitepapers or other marketing collateral, include links to schedule a meeting or take some preferred action.

Email is the best way to follow up with sales leads because it is inexpensive and easy to set up. And the ROI on email marketing is sti

ll higher than any other marketing channel available.

Direct Mail.
The best way to follow up with a sales lead is with direct mail. A physical mailing gets the point across way better than an email can, and that’s because it is more impactful to hold something in your hand.

Direct mail also benefits from its seeming decline. Email has become so easy, and so commonplace, and a direct mailing really helps you stand out from the crowd.

You can send a postcard or letter, a pamphlet or flyer. You can send a coupon, or a sign up form, or something that better highlights the benefits of your product vs. the competition.

The best way to follow up with a sales lead is a text message. A text message cuts right through the clutter and gets seen – immediately in most cases. Unlike direct mail, it’s instant and cheap. And unlike email, its unique and unlikely to get missed or ignored.

With a text message, you can send a link to important pages on your website, limited time offers, or a reminder to call you back at a certain time.

Phone Call.
The best way to follow up with a sales lead is with a phone call. Outbound dialing campaigns can connect you directly with the prospective customer in a way that is more personal than any message. Through a simple conversation, you are able to showcase all of the benefits of your service and find out what the lead is looking for in a product.

Unlike other channels, the likelihood of closing a deal once you get someone on the phone is much higher. And there are thousands of skilled sales men and women out there who can sell to anyone over the phone.

The Truth Is…
There is no single best way to follow up with a sales lead.

Okay, you got me. But this isn’t just a post about all the different ways to follow up with someone in your funnel. Nor is this one of those, “it depends” answers.

The most successful sales and marketing teams use a combination of some or all of the above channels, and continue to fine tune their messaging on each one over time.

There are a wide variety of consumers out there, and each is likely to respond to different sales channels and techniques slightly differently. By incorporating a number of different outreach methods into your follow up strategy, you cast the widest possible net.

Amora Hotels is an independently owned hotel group based in Thailand, with seven hotels across the globe, including three in Thailand, two in New Zealand, and two in Australia. The flagship property, Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney, boasts 415 rooms, a world-class spa, conference and meeting space and the presidential suites necessary to service VIP guests.

Staff at the hotel takes great pride in the service and the amenities at the property. Abhishek Sinha, the Front Office Manager at the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney, says, &ld

quo;Our goal is to be the number one accommodation provider in our comp set. We want to have an edge in customer service and the product that we provide to our client base.”

When the hotel staff decided to closely manage its online reputation and began to dig into the hotel’s scores and online feedback, they were surprised by what they discovered. Guests felt that the rooms weren’t right for modern travelers and often complained about the lack of outlets in the rooms. In addition, the hotel trailed its comp set on the TripAdvisor Popularity Index so when prospective guests searched for hotels in Sydney, Amora Hotel Jamison was displayed after its competitors.

In order to beat the competition on TripAdvisor and to better serve its guests, the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney began a full floor-by-floor renovation of guest rooms in June 2014. They leaned very heavily on guest feedback to determine where to invest. Sinha says, “Each room now has a media hub where guests can plug in laptops, iPads, USB devices, and DVD players. They can also connect to bluetooth with their smart devices. We’ve brought the comfort of home for the modern traveler to each hotel room.”

When Sinha joined the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney staff in January 2014, he found that despite the renovations and technology updates, the hotel had only risen one place on the TripAdvisor Popularity Index. At the time, the hotel was using paper guest satisfaction surveys and checking review sites manually, which was time-consuming. The staff also didn’t have an easy way to see trends in feedback data to pinpoint specific ways to improve the guest experience. It was clear that to improve the hotel’s online reputation, the renovations alone were not enough.

Sinha already knew how crucial it is for hotels to operationalize guest feedback. He had used a traditional GSS service in a previous position to monitor his online reputation and respond to reviews. But since the service only covered a limited number of review sites and social media networks, Sinha decided to look for another solution. Sinha needed an industry-leading solution that was more focused on public-facing, user-generated content rather than long-form, private surveys. Also, since the TripAdvisor Popularity Index is based primarily on the quality, quantity and recency of reviews, Sinha needed a way to get more of his guests to write reviews online. To fill these needs, Sinha decided to sign up for Revinate’s solutions for Online Reputation Management and Post-Stay Surveys.

When Sinha started Revinate service on July 1, 2014, the Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney was at #56 on the TripAdvisor Popularity Index. In August, it rose to #41. By the writing of this article in September, the hotel was at #35. “Everyone was shocked. We never expected to improve so quickly,” says Sinha.

The massive jump in ranking can be largely attributed to Sinha’s decision to move away from traditional GSS and take a modern look at the practice of collecting guest feedback. With Revinate Post-Stay Surveys, when guests respond to requests for feedback, the comments are automatically submitted to TripAdvisor, thereby increasing the hotel’s volume of reviews. In addition, the hotel found that by soliciting reviews, their feedback was more positive. Sinha says, “We found that when we began soliciting reviews from guests, the ratings we got were higher than the ratings we got organically.”

The Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney was also able to improve the guest experience by actively using Revinate’s Online Reputation Management solution, which gathers a wide range of feedback from all over the internet and analyzes it, allowing Sinha to spot areas for operational improvement. “Each month, we look at the trending topics on the dashboard. When there are negative topics, we dig deep and see where we can improve the guest experience,” says Sinha. For example, through Revinate’s sentiment analysis technology, Sinha discovered that guests were dissatisfied with the check-in process. “We didn’t realize before that guests thought the check-in process was too slow. But after seeing the data I worked with the front desk to make our operational procedures more efficient,” he says. Now, the hotel gets positive remarks about speed of check-in.

Sinha also enjoys the additional social media features that come standard with Revinate’s solution. He says, “One of the best parts of Online Reputation Management is the social search feature. I wasn’t getting this with the other online GSS provider, and I’ve never heard of this functionality in my fifteen years in hospitality. We can put in keywords for our area, and get all social media mentions pulled up, allowing us to target promotions based on what people are looking for,” Sinha says.

As a final point of differentiation from the other online hotel guest survey provider, Sinha noted that with many traditional GSS services, each hotel gets a limited number of logins. With Revinate, Sinha can give access to his entire staff. “Revinate is very user-friendly, and it has become a cornerstone of our operations. Everyone, from housekeeping to the kitchen brigade, has his or her own login and uses Revinate to track feedback pertaining to his/her particular function. Each department makes its own goals based on the data we get with Revinate. That’s incredibly powerful for us,” Sinha says.

The Amora Hotel Jamison Sydney has shown that moving away from traditional GSS isn’t as scary as many hoteliers think. In fact, this hotel’s focus on user-generated, public feedback has helped it gain a big leg up on competitors who are adhering to a more traditional guest feedback strategy. “Overall, Revinate is just outstanding. I think everyone in this industry needs it,” says Sinha.

Welcome to the 256th Android Apps Weekly! Here are the big headlines from the last week:

Google continues to integrate their various services this week. They announced better integration between Google News and Google Assistant. Assistant now takes news from Google News for various news briefings upon request. The new feature only works in the U.S. for now. However, we expect it to roll out to a wider audience over time. Google News itself uses learning techniques for your news. Thus, it’s actually a

fairly customizable solution. Hit the link for more details!
Nova Launcher is an update to version 6.0. A point release means it’s a rather large release. The new features leaked this week. They include a revamped settings menu (finally), more adaptive icon options, and plenty of other features. The app drawer in particular gets some revamped theming options. Regular Nova Launcher gets icon re-sizing, a feature that used to be in Nova Launcher Prime only. You can check out the full list of new stuff at the link.
The emulated retro gaming industry took a big hit this week. EmuParadise is shutting down. Nintendo threatened the popular ROM website earlier this week. The lawsuit was seeking damages for trademark infringement and for each copyrighted game. In response, the site simply shut down. It sparked conversations about out-of-print games, gaming history, and how game developers don’t preserve their work well. Those are all valid points. However, it didn’t stop EmuParadise from shutting its doors.
Newton Mail also announced their demise this week. The premium email service was among the best of its kind. However, high prices, low subscriber numbers, and lack of growth forced the developers’ hand. It started out as CloudMagic and was almost viral in its success. However, the re-brand brought a subscription fee along with a host of new features. Most didn’t consider the new features worth the price and left. The super premium email service just wasn’t as successful as the developers thought it would be. Goodbye Newton.
Fortnite officially launched this week (for Samsung devices only). It’s compatible with most recent Samsung devices, including the S7 Edge, S8 series, S9 series, a few of their tablets, and, of course, the Note 8 and Note 9. It’s available now in Samsung’s app store. The exclusivity should only last a few days, though. Fortnite is launching on its own website. Users download an installer app and the installer app actually installs the game. Initial opinions were mixed. The game ran fine for some and not so fine for others. However, that should improve with time. There are guides all over the place on how to install it. Additionally, Google added an extra warning to Google Play that it isn’t there. We also conducted an interview with Epic Games CEO Tom Sweeney. You can read that by clicking here!
