Power of Learning

Power of Professional Growth

Learning new things can be extremely stimulating and essential to advancing your career. The body feeds off of taking on new things and testing your knowledge and level of performance in a variety of areas and other tasks. Not only is it good for your brain improving your health and memory, new skills allow you to increase your mental wellbeing and happiness and allows you to be adaptable in life.

Start by Brainstorming

Learning keeps your mind engaged and body active and that thought alone can put pressure of choosing the right areas to focus on. Learning is extremely subjective and because of that, it can be absolutely anything you have interest in or see return on investment in. The idea may come naturally, but the key is to remember that learning something entirely new can still have an impact on your everyday priorities, without the pressure of it being directly correlated to your career, it can simply refresh your mind and help you think differently.

Deconstruct Your Goal

Like any goal, learning a new skill can be broken down so you have a clear plan to reach your desired outcome. Once you’ve brainstormed the idea and decide what it is you want to achieve, Break down the skill that you want to learn into little pieces and learn techniques to master an isolated portion. The small pieces will come together to make up the whole skill.

For example, when you’re learning to play the guitar, learn how to press down a chord pattern with your fingers first without even trying to strum the chord. Once you are able to change between a couple of chord patterns, then add the strumming.

Use the Pareto Principle

The Pareto Principle also known as the 80 20 rule allows you to identify the 20% of the work that will give you 80% of the results.The trick is to discover what that 20% is so we can apply our most effort to that 20% and eliminate as much of the 80% that does not produce the results we want.

Once you’ve reverse engineered your new skill, put together the list of all key components and then flag or highlight the tasks that will give you the biggest contribution towards attaining the skill. Those tasks will be the 20% of tasks that will take you 80% of the way towards completing the project. Focus on those.

Find a Mentor

Success leaves clues. The best short cut to become an expert is to find an expert and not have to make the mistakes that they have made.

Finding out what NOT to do from the expert will fast-track your learning when you want to learn new skills. It is a huge win to have them personally walk you through what needs to be done. Reach out and send an email to them.

The Power of Professional Growth

Ever wonder why baking a cake or putting together a model plane is easy? Now not to discredit bakers or toy designers, but the reason someone that’s not a baker can easily make a red velvet cake from a box is because they follow a well-developed guide to do so. The outcome seems more and more achievable with a clear step by step plan. These examples are fairly straight forward but reaching your career goals can be just as uncomplicated.

Career progression can be more streamlined with a clear and measurable professional growth plan. That being said, professional growth isn’t limited to the workplace – it’s the development or refinement of skills and talents, as well as gained work experience, that can help you reach a desired outcome. From the standpoint of an employee, this may be networking, starting online courses, developing systems to bridge your gaps or taking on activities that push you outside of your comfort zone, subsequently challenging you to think and act differently.

Building a plan for your professional growth consists of several steps, each one bringing you closer to your goals. Whether you’re looking to change careers or chase your next promotion, a clear growth strategies could be the win formula to get there.

Creating your Professional Growth Plan

1. Start with Why

In life we give reason to decisions and actions. The same principle is the key to driving a professional growth plan. You may already have some ideas of what you want to work on or to achieve, but you need to ask yourself, Why?

You may want many things that sound natural and reasonable, like getting a promotion or starting a new side hustle. The higher purpose of making more money can be for a variety of reasons, including saving for the future, closing debt or upgrading your lifestyle. Once you know the motivation for getting there, or your why, it will be easier to connect having to take these actions to your goals.

2. Set SMART Goals

Setting SMART goals ensures that your objectives are attainable. SMART goals are “specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time bound”. They allow you to break down big ambitions into smaller measurable actions. Say your goal is to start a high quality sales team, you can specify your aim to learning and understanding sales, becoming a master of sales, having great quality, coaching sales, and then becoming replicable.

SMART is an effective tool that provides the clarity, focus and motivation you need to achieve your goals. It can also improve your ability to reach them by encouraging you to define your objectives and set a completion date.

3. Identify your Professional Strengths

Your strengths are tasks and actions you can do well – these could include knowledge, proficiencies, skills or talent that naturally give you an advantage in your desired field. People use their traits and abilities to complete work, relate with others, and achieve goals. Doubling down on your strengths will only allow you to better execute a professional growth plan and become a more valuable asset to your work environment.

Break down what your strengths are from your perspective and maybe that of a mentor, manager or colleague (someone that sees you in a professional environment). These strengths may be tasks or situations in which you excel, job responsibilities or projects that you have really enjoyed — now or in the past, or skills you’ve perfected and enjoyed in your personal life that could be applied at work.

Once you’ve put together a list, break down your multidimensional skills to a basic level; for example, if you’re great at customer service, your skills might be: making connections with people, learning deep product knowledge or conflict resolution. By doing so, you can pick the 20% of your strengths and really leverage off off your strengths to pull you closer to your goals.

4. Find the GAP

At some point in time you might have heard the saying “the GAP is where its at.” In any level of career progression there is room to grow and a margin of improvement that can be made by an individual or the entire business. When focusing on your professional growth, the GAP is the area that you may lack knowledge off or struggle to do consistently. When given the right attention, these area’s can be the catalyst to professional growth. Take the time to write of list of the necessary skills, knowledge and resources you have access to relevant to your career goal; for example, if your goal is to start coaching, the necessary skills may be: learning different styles of coaching, understanding how to communicate feedback and beginning leadership focused self development. From the list that you come up with, identify which of the areas you could gain the most traction and momentum from towards your goal, if you shifted your focus and doubled down on bridging the gap.

HYPA Group - Strong Marketing Operation

Run a Successful Marketing Operation

HYPA Group has discovered that many are struggling with strengthening their marketing executions. No matter how experienced you are, the sure thing is that you can always get a better result. This can be achieved by strengthening the core pillars of your operation. In this article, we are looking at how to go about it.

Strategy, organizational structure and technology are the fundamental aspects that you need to strengthen and build. Objectively looking at how well you are doing in these three areas will help you achieve the desired result, says experts of HYPA Group.

Solid Strategy

This is one of the most important parts of your marketing operation because without a solid strategy in place you can’t be a successful marketer. With a solid strategy, you can make the most out of the resources you have, be well guided, know how to improve and track your success.

Marketing operations are overseen by a diverse group of specialists. They are in charge of bringing all of the different elements together and ensuring that they are implemented in a harmonic manner, experts of HYPA Group says. These individuals frequently possess analytical mindsets and talents, which they employ to manage enormous volumes of data and direct marketing.

1. Communicate the right message

it is very important you connect with your audience and one of the best ways to do that is by communicating the right message to them at the right time. How can you strengthen your strategy?

2. Concentrate on people:

though there are various things to focus on such as tools, good marketing is all about the people you are serving. Being able to have a clear understanding of who they are and what they need will help you create a solid strategy and content to serve them better.

Create multichannel experience: to achieve your desired result as a business owner you need to create a multiple channel experience for your audience. Targeting the right channels with the right content will go a long way.      

Organizational structure

An organization’s organizational structure integrates and connects its various pieces in order for it to work at its best. The structure chosen has an impact on an organization’s ability to achieve its strategy and objectives. To aid in this strategic alignment, leadership should be aware of the characteristics, benefits, and limitations of various organizational structures.

You need to focus on your organizational structure because you cannot perform well when you are struggling to get needed resources, working over-capacity or your team is not well-structured. Ensure building a well-structured team with clear goals and the same focus. Doing the following will help you in straightening your organizational structure.

1. Concentrate on Communication:

for your team to excel and be successful good communication is needed. Most of the challenges in an organization have been traced back to lack of communication or miscommunication. Knowing about the different types of creative thinkers and one you belong to will help to improve the way you communicate with your team. Communicating and understanding people on your team will make problem-solving easy and together you can produce high-quality work.

Build and establish the right team:

You can take a role-based approach instead of focusing on job titles and ensure that irrespective of the role each responsibility is covered. The reason this is important is that your team structure can either make or mar your progress.

Clarity of Goals: one of the most common problems seen in teams is not lack of goals but not having allied clear goals across the organization. Every department of an organization should be working with a clear goal if they want to have effective results. Brand strategy should be able to communicate their goals to content strategy and they should also clarify the goals to other departments or teams involved.

3. Share Your Measure of Success:

If you want people to be inspired to push themselves beyond the limit and be proud of their work then you need to let them understand your measure of success. Without that it will be difficult to keep everyone accountable and in alignment with your organization. Finding out which metrics to consider and how your ROI can be improved can help you with how to measure success in case you are not sure.

4. Work Smart and Not Hard:

One of the distinguishing characteristics of a successful marketing organization is working smarter. Improve your process by helping your team to learn more about optimizing your content creation process at every stage.   

Marketing Technology

In this present age of technology, it is easy to be a marketer with the right infrastructure. Be it data-collection or automation, being able to make use of all that technology provides is important. There are a variety of tools that can be used to improve every aspect of your marketing. These tools will help in saving time and keep your focus on things that matter. Sometimes it can be quite overwhelming and difficult when you have limited funds and want to put every tool to work, says experts of HYPA Group. It is advisable to keep it simple and be able to understand the data you are getting from the tools. Using it to benefit your team and improve your marketing operation.

Interview at HYPA Group

Interview at HYPA Group

According to the experts of HYPA Group, almost everyone will make a first impression but only few make a good lasting impression. It takes just a quick glance, maybe four seconds, for someone to evaluate you when you meet for the first time. In this short time, someone can form an opinion about you based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, your mannerisms, and how you are dressed. The first impression can seal the deal.

These first impressions can be nearly impossible to reverse or undo, and they often set the tone for the relationship that follows especially in a professional setting like an interview. Would you like to know how to make a lasting impression?

The following are a few simple ways recommended by the experts of HYPA Group to get the ‘right’ foot in the door at your first interview.

1. Be on Time

Someone you are meeting for the first time will not be interested in your “good excuse” for running late. Plan to arrive a ten to fifteen minutes early, and allow flexibility for possible delays in traffic or taking a wrong turn. Arriving early is much better that arriving late, and is the first step toward creating a great first impression.

2. Dress to Impress

Of course physical appearance matters. The person you are meeting for the first time doesn’t know you, so your appearance is usually the first clue he or she has to go on. The key to a good impression is to present yourself appropriately and professionally. Think about the environment in which you are meeting and what the appropriate dress code for the meeting or occasion is. For your first interview, what is the appropriate business attire?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and so the “picture” you first present needs to demonstrate who you are to the person you are meeting.

3. Be Yourself

The best way to create a good impression is by being our authentic self. It may sound crazy as the idea of fitting in and first gauging the temperature in a new environment comes instinctively, but being yourself allows you to feel more confident, calm and certain.

Believe me, it’s much easier to build trust, earn respect and show your true character to the people you meet by just being you.

4. Have a Winning Smile

As the saying goes, “Smile and the world smiles too.” So there’s nothing like a smile to create a good first impression. A warm and confident smile will put both you and the other person at ease. So smiling is a winner when it comes to great first impressions. Of course be natural – forcing this is just as transparent and organically expressing a smile in the moment.

This automatically makes you stand out and effortlessly put your business among the best out there. Be yourself and let your company have its personality to build customers’ loyalty.

Conclusion

Nobody has a perfect plan during the first try. Make a draft of your unique selling point until you have what you need. Open your mind to new ideas and create a good USP. If you discover your USP isn’t as effective as you want, change it to another.

The Advantages of Face-to-Face Sales and Marketing

Tiktok Advertising

Complete Guide to TikTok Advertising

According to Kurt Christian, owner of HYPA Group, headquartered in Melbourne and Newcastle, TikTok has emerged to be one of the most sought-after apps for brands and content creators, says experts of . During the 2020 pandemic alone, the app records a whopping 315 million downloads only at the first half of the year- the best, most downloaded ever which neither is a Facebook or gaming app. Brands who are already in the TikTok game are already reaping plenteous benefits while those who are still on the fence might be missing out on a whole lot of opportunities.

Just like advertising on other social media apps, advertising on TikTok is just as simple as you can imagine. Brands are also working with content creators to promote their products and services. We have also seen businesses like Walmart, L’Oreal and other retailers already jumping on the bandwagon to promote their products and make considerable success.

Although TikTok is well-loved by Gen Z, we have seen older generations jumping into it to explore everything it has to offer. Hence, as a business, there is a high chance your target audience is already on this platform and it’s high time for you to do the same. Looking into exploring Tiktok but don’t know how to start? HYPA Group, headquartered in Melbourne and Newcastle, a thriving company specializing in taking businesses to the highest level through advertising gives expert tips on the importance of Tiktok for business growth and how you can be a part of it.

Know your Target Audience

As said earlier, more than half of the Tiktok users globally are under the age of 34 with 26 percent between the age of 18- 24. This means the platform is mostly used by young adults although there might still be an opportunity to reach different age groups as well. Hence, if your target audience is the younger generation, TikTok is a must-have in your marketing arsenal. This age bracket boasts of high purchasing power, and they’re the fastest-growing consumer segment. This promises a huge return on your ad spends. If, however, you are more into boomers, TikTok might not be the way to go and there are fewer benefits you could attain, says experts of Kurt Christian’s company – HYPA Group, headquartered in Melbourne and Newcastle.

Understand the TikTok Music Strategy that Works

The TikTok music you use in your video content can either break or make the engagement rate. Just like any social platform, the sound used is just as important as the creativity put into the content creation. Music is what demonstrates how trendy a brand is and it can also make for content that keeps your brand in the audience’s minds for long. And it goes without saying that the latest and trendy songs are what will make a wave for your video content.

Look for Ways to Drive Sales using TikTok

Alike TikTok all other social platforms have become a marketing vehicle not only to drive traffic but also to generate leads and drive sales. To get started, you can add your store link in the bio to make it easy for users to find your site. Moreover, TikTok is in partnership with Shopify. This is a great opportunity for retailers to connect their TikTok to Shopify to generate in-feed shoppable posts from videos. Not to forget that this is one platform that offers a wide range of advertising options from in-feeds ads to brand takeover ads to pre-roll ads and so much more.

Partner with Influencers

Lastly, consider partnering with TikTok influencers that have garnered large followings. They can help create sponsored videos that will help create brand awareness, generate leads and drive sales. For instance, HYPA Group, headquartered in Melbourne and Newcastle have worked with various TikTok personalities across various industries. There is no denying they have been able to record huge success over the years.
