3 Benefits of Hiring a Criminal Defense Attorney

Posted on 10 August 2018 by sam

Being charged with a crime is scary. From the disconcerting arrest process to the intimidating interrogation and investigation, the parts of the whole ordeal might seem like they are moving a mile a minute. This is why it is so important to find a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Knowledge of the justice system, good representation, and less financial burden are what a defense attorney can bring to you and your case.

Knowledge of the Justice System

First and foremost, lawyers go to school for this. They studied civil procedure and constitutional law to help you out. These licensed professionals want to get to know your case as soon as possible to help you out to the best of their ability. This is because they are experienced in court proceedings. While each case is unique and will be carried out differently, your attorney will know the skeleton of how it will go down. Since they likely work their cases in the same city or town, they will also be familiar with the judge and prosecutor involved in your case, and they might be able to negotiate the charges against you before it’s too late. The earlier this can be attempted, the better off you will be in the long run. A Denver criminal attorney who has been practicing there for many years might be able to build your case better than one who has recently moved in. Your attorney’s knowledge of how to approach different types of cases is to your utmost advantage.

Strategic Representation

Your options from the beginning of your arrest should be made strategically. Per your Miranda rights, it is not even necessary to answer police questioning until you have the opportunity to hire an attorney. Consulting their expertise will help you avoid self-incriminating acts or words. The accused commonly get themselves into even further trouble, but a good lawyer can eliminate the opportunities for you to do so. The time and energy that your chosen criminal defense attorney and their team will be able to pour into your case far outweighs what you could do on your own. From research on similar cases to getting a hold of evidence and witnesses, they will have it on lock for your best outcome. They will also be able to inform you of the specifics of your case, without the use of law jargon that can be confusing. Having a representative on your side will allow you to ask questions. You will want to understand your options no matter what the outcome is.

Less Financial Burden

Sneaky fines and fees are doled out effortlessly in the adult court system. You will likely be charged a booking fee that you might not be refunded, even if the accusations are dismissed. So, if you are accused, you will want the best defense to avoid or reduce any other court fees that might come your way. While upfront costs may seem high, hiring a criminal defense attorney can help save you money down the line. While your involvement in the case is obvious, you will not have the burden of putting together your whole defense. This means that you can avoid loss of income through excessive absences at work. Your attorney’s fees will vary depending on where you live. Feel free to talk to your lawyer about your ability to pay and your financial situation. They may be able to lower overall fees and work with you on payment.

You might be persuaded to avoid hiring a criminal defense attorney because everything seems stacked against you or you are low on funds. Don’t think this way. A consultation with a good attorney will let you know your best legal and financial options from the get-go. A lawyer has the know-how to navigate the legal system, whereas you might be unfamiliar. With the right evidence and eloquence, their well-used strategies can help you with your case.

How does CRM Solutions help in customer retention?

Posted on 26 July 2018 by sam

“People will forget what you said. They will forget what you did. But they will never forget how you made them feel” –Maya Angelou. Rightly said by Maya (poet), these lines also apply with your existing customers and the kind of experience you give them.

Rising churn rate is an alarming issue that businesses are facing today. However there are some companies  who are working actively on customer retention as compared to acquiring new customer. Simple reason behind this is that the cost of acquiring a new customer is higher than retaining a customer.

On scrutinizing more, businesses found these problem areas for rising churn rate:-

1] Customers are no more interested in your offerings.

2] Customers feel they are not taken care of.

3] Customers think their issues are not getting addressed rightly and on time.

4] Customers go ahead with your competitors offering.

Failure to pay attention to these problem areas contribute to rising churn rate. A key to retaining your customers if solving the issues they are facing and making then feel that they are valued, important and special. How do we ensure we do this for each and every customer?

Tip 1:- Invest in a smart Customer Relationship Management software. By smart we mean it has to be super smart. Smart enough to automate almost every task or a few tasks. (We know you must be already using one but check if that completely syncs in your requirements and moulds as per your business process.)

1] Automate your follow-ups:-

Be it your prospects or your customers, every salesperson needs to follow-up with them and it is highly impossible to get in touch with each one of them. Use the power of an automated CRM to send personalized and automated follow-up emails. This will free up your sales team so they can focus on personally in touch with all these customers over a call. Customers value this personal touch which your company maintains with customers and this gives them a sense of not being forgotten.

Tip 2:- Use email automation module present in the CRM and automate your follow-ups. You will then not be required to invest in an email marketing tool for even sending bulk emails.

2] Send great deals for your esteemed customers:-

Your CRM’s intelligence to its fullest. Your CRM can easily fetch details of your highest paying customers, loyal customers etc and you can extend attractive deals to such customers. By taking this initiative you get repeat business and also ensure customer loyalty. Look into the purchase pattern of your customers and make an offer which customers cannot refuse.

3] Check if your customer’s issues are getting solved within the estimated time:-

Where there are customers, there will also be queries.  Customers come to you with a great hope about the issues getting resolved and someone paying keen attention to the issues they are facing. This is the time when you can ensure customers loyalty towards your company. Ensure that your support team has proper resources and all necessary information required for solving customers issues.

This will reduce your churn rate by making customers feel that they are not getting ignored and their issues are being taken care of.

4] Use direct marketing techniques to get in touch with your high valued but inactive customers:-

There will be two types of customers that you have. Highly valued and active customers who regularly purchase your products/services. And the second type will be highly valued but inactive. Who rarely make a purchase or have stopped purchasing.

Using the reporting feature, create a list of both the types of customers. You may prefer not investing efforts in keeping active customers engaged with your company, however, the weak link is the inactive customers.  Get in touch with these inactive customers and gain their interest in your business again.

Ask them questions as to why they have stopped or reduced the frequency of purchasing your products/services and hit their issues.

Depending on the business model you are, B2B or B2C, get in touch with customers over a call and in case of B2B, a personal meeting will be ideal to re-generate healthy relations with your customers.

5] Reward regular customers:-

Among the high-value customers and who actively make a purchase, reward such customers.

You can reward these customers for being with your company and helping you generate revenue.

Identify such customers using smart reporting of your CRM and send these incentives via bulk email.

Tip:- Try cross-selling strategies to active customers to ensure revenue generation and customer loyalty.


6] Send some love on their special day:-

Send personalized birthday/ anniversary wishes to your customers and make them feel special. This will only require email automation where you can set predefined parameters and email template and you are ready to send wishes to your esteemed customers.


1] Invest in a good sales CRM.

2] Use automated CRM to automate almost everything, right from sending personalized emails to set up workflows.

3] Customers need attention and hence try to be in touch with all of them and ensure that their queries are resolved on time which will help you reduce the churn rate.

4] CRM is a powerful tool if used wisely and can be your best companion in all over sales and support process.

Adding Music to Videos Using Movavi Video Editor

Posted on 23 April 2018 by sam

Adding the right background music to accompany your video can completely transform its vibe. Not only will the music that you add help to set the tone for your video, but it can also help to provide it with pace and change the way in which people perceive it.

Because of the huge role that music can play in videos, it is important that you know how to add background music to yours. That task will be made a lot easier if you use Movavi Video Editor, and shouldn’t take you long at all.

How to Add Music

If you want to learn how to add music to videos, you should launch Movavi Video Editor and select the ‘Create project in full feature mode option’ to open the editor. Next, click on the ‘Add Media Files’ button and select both the video that you want to edit as well as the audio file that you want to use as background music.

After you’ve added the video and audio, both will appear in the ‘Timeline’ area at the lower part of Movavi Video Editor’s interface. At that point you could technically save the video if you like – but before you do it is important to check that the lengths of the video and audio are the same.

If the video is longer than the audio that will mean that there will be no music towards the latter part of the video. On the other hand if the audio is longer than the video it will continue to play to a blank screen once the video is done. Fortunately you can fix both these issues easily with Movavi Video Editor.

Assuming the video is longer, you can either add a second file or add the same file again – effectively playing the same music twice in the video. That can be repeated as many times as is necessary, until the length of the video and audio is the same or the audio is longer.

When the audio is longer than the video, you can use Movavi Video Editor to split it and trim out the excess. To do that, move the red marker all the way to the end of the video and click on the ‘Split’ icon (i.e. the scissors) right above the ‘Timeline’. Next, click on the audio segment that was split off, and hit the ‘Delete’ key to remove it.

Once the audio and video lengths are a match, you should take a minute and explore the other features in Movavi Video Editor. With their help you could enhance the video quality, edit the audio, apply filters and effects, add captions, and more.

If and when you’re satisfied with your video and the changes that you’ve made, click ‘Export’ to save your video. By the time you’re done you should have successfully added music to your video using Movavi Video Editor, and maybe improved it in other ways as well while you’re at it.

Blinds Vs Curtains: The Rise of Blinds

Posted on 27 March 2018 by sam

So you’ve just finished decorating your home, and you’re thinking about the finishing touches. Small additions will help you create an aesthetically pleasing setup that you can be proud to call home. One of the biggest decisions at this stage is the age old dilemma: blinds or curtains?

There are various options to consider, including different colors, patterns, and fabrics. It’s not an easy decision, because you probably want to marry practicality with something that’s visually appealing. By thinking wisely about what’s best, you can achieve a whole new feel in your room. It’s a decision you need to get right, despite how unimportant it may initially seem.

To help you make an informed decision, this article will objectively assess what you can achieve with curtains, before moving onto the pros of blinds.


A grand set of curtains can add a touch of luxury to any room. They have been around for centuries, and they serve a practical purpose, while simultaneously looking great. With high-quality curtains, you can effectively block out pesky drafts, which helps create a comfortable, cozy environment. Curtains also make your room look less bare, adding depth and volume to rooms in which they’re prominently featured. Curtains are useful for blocking out light, as well; however, their inability to fit snugly on a window allows light to sneak through when you’re trying to achieve darkness. In addition to keeping out drafts, curtains also help keep heat in during cold weather, acting as an insulation layer.

The Rise of Blinds

Blinds offer several benefits that curtains don’t. There are various styles to choose from, so you can select a design that suits the theme of your room. The myriad of options ensures that you can find something that complements your interior.

There are various types to consider, as well, including roller and vertical style blinds. The former is a great choice for bathrooms, and the latter is ideal for conservatives. You can mix and match, also, depending on your preference, and give blinds a test run before reaching a final decision. If you’re wondering where you can get the best deals, there are various cheap blinds online that you can find with a simple Google search. There are blinds suitable for any property type, especially residential and commercial structures.

If you’re intrigued by the concept of blinds, you might be interested in learning about plantation shutters. These are comprised of wood slats mounted in a solid wooden frame. They serve a similar purpose to blinds, but they are maneuvered by operating a tilt rod in the middle of the shutter, rather than pull cords. They’re slightly more expensive than blinds, but they can be customized according to your preferences. Exactly how much do custom plantation shutters cost? Don’t worry; they’re only marginally more expensive than blinds, and they allow you to fill your window space with greater ease. You can find a price option that suits your budget by researching online before shopping.

Above everything else, blinds function effectively. You can control the amount of light entering a room with venetian blinds, which offer an unprecedented level of privacy. If you want a total blackout, blinds can block unwanted light completely, unlike many types of curtains. Blinds are timeless, because they’re less likely to go out of fashion. Their simplicity and durability will withstand the test of time, yet remain easy to maintain. Blinds also block out drafts completely, providing ultimate coverage, and the perfect insulator.

Still on the Fence?

If you’re still uncertain, roman blinds are a nice, happy medium. Although they are still classed as blinds, they are cut from fabric to offer the same feel as curtains. They bring warmth to a room, without the cold, metallic feel of some styles of blinds. They’re also a less expensive alternative to curtains, which is perfect if you’re buying on budget.

5 Easy Tips for Success

Posted on 27 March 2018 by sam

For the most part, we all wish we were more successful. It can be hard to get ahead in life, when so many others are competing for jobs. Even if your goal isn’t to work your way towards being CEO, your job is still important, and there’s more than one area of life you want to succeed in. Relationships, love life, parenting–when it comes to life in general, we could all use a little more good news. So without further ado, check out these easy tips for bringing in some triumph.

Live Healthy
I’m sure you’ve heard that a healthy lifestyle is better for you. But did you know that it’s also better for your success? Regular exercise and a healthy diet can improve your energy levels. Want to run after that toddler? You’ve got this. Want to stay late at a party to chat with that guy? You’ve got that, too. A healthy diet and better metabolism can help you do better at work, since even too much sugar can even have a negative impact on your brain function. Snack healthy and get plenty of exercise, and you’ll start to see your work (and life!) improve.

Get Grooming
While it might not be fair, it may also not be surprising–attractive people statistically have higher success rates in life. Is it because companies give them a second chance at job interviews? Is it because it’s easier to find a mate? Is it because they come off as more persuasive? Studies indicate that each of these things might be true. Beauty can help you get ahead–in your love life, work, and even politics. Don’t sit on the shelf thinking you’re not good enough–start grooming regularly, and if you need to lose some weight, try a supplement like Fastin Diet Pills. The more you learn to appreciate and care for your appearance, the more of an advantage you’ll have in life.

Take a Break
Did you know you’re more productive after a vacation? Taking a vacation can actually make you a better employee, according to some studies. Instead of working brutal hours to get ahead, you should strategize your breaks–taking time out to get work done more efficiently. Whether it’s vacation rentals in Cali Colombia or a weekend getaway, start taking time for vacation.  

Zone In
Success isn’t just about your appearance or your energy levels; it’s also about your mindset. To get ahead, you need to have a plan. Work success revolves around making the right priorities, so if you want success, don’t wait for it to happen to you. Start taking practical steps towards what you want. Get a gameplan, and go for it.

Think Positive
One of the last barriers to your success may be your self-esteem. More than three-quarters of Americans struggle with low self-esteem, and chances are, you do, too. Some indications that you have low self-esteem include procrastination and anxiety, neither of which will benefit your work or your relationships. Studies have shown that high self-esteem can improve your success, so when it comes to living a better life–start by engaging in a positive mindset, and silencing a critical one.
