Your guardian angel

If you know what I am going to talk about now, I am happy for you. If you don’t know, then too I am happy for you.

You must have read about the concept of Guardian Angels somewhere. If not, then this is the place where you get to know about them for the first time. It feels good to know that finally you get to add this new information to your bank of heavenly knowledge.

Guardian_Angel_1900

By definition, a guardian angel is an angel that is assigned to protect and guide a particular person, group, kingdom, or country. Yes, I know these words like angels, heaven and God are words that create a big impact on those who believe.

But, if you are more of a doubting Thomas or an agnostic who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God, I would still urge you to read on. Why? Well, just for the sake of some new information that your logical mind might get to poke and pry for a start.

So, what most people have read is that a guardian angel is a spirit that is thought to watch over and protect a person. There is the belief that God has commissioned one angel per person as a source of protection. In a way, this angel becomes an intermediary between god and the human.

Interesting thing is that many earthly religions have firmly discussed the concept of guardian angels and highlighted them as benevolent and helpful.

The Christian tradition and church have various references to the guardian angel. The 266th and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis in one of his sermons does say, “I should do this; this is not right; be careful. This is the voice of our guardian angel.”

What the Pope means to convey here is that the sane, calm, intelligent, wise voice that talks to us inside our being and seeks to show us the right path in times of doubt, is the voice of our guardian angel.

A similar belief exists in Judaism and in Zorastrianism where the Holy Guardian Angel is ‘Arda Fravas’.

Shoulder Angels

In many believers of Islamic faith, there is the strong belief in two recording angels named ‘Munkir’ and ‘Nakeer’. Angel Munkir sits on the right shoulder of a person and records all the good deeds done by him in his lifetime. Angel Nakeer sits on the left shoulder of a person and records all his bad deeds or sins.

Many of you are also aware of TV cartoons and film characters that are at times shown getting firm guidance by their shoulder angel and the proverbial devil. The concept differs a bit here as the angel on the right shoulder talks about the need to do the right thing, while the devil on the left urges you with a sly smile to do what you desire to do.

What all this really means is that there is this concept of some divine being called Guardian Angel who remains your friend and protector. By means of this angel, the God of believers is said to plant images and suggestions in a person, leading him to do what is right and helpful.

The Radiant Trio

For the past two or three years now, I have often come across this image in my mind of three divine, graceful, kind and beyond-gorgeous group of three women.

For some reason, I have always seen them sitting on a beautiful park bench in their lovely, white and shimmery dress, having animated conversation with each other. But, whenever my attention has gone towards these three women, I always see them halting their conversation midway. Then I find them looking towards me expectantly, with radiant and knowledgeable smiles.

I get the feeling that when I think about them, they feel very happy. I haven’t got to know more about them yet. But I think the time has come when I should get to know more about them and why they are making themselves known to me over the past two-three years.

I have a strong feeling that I had better start communicating with not one, but three Guardian Angels in my life.

HOW TO SELECT A DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCY 🏅 . Let's face it. Once you commit your business promotion to digital marketing, then that's a big first step. 🕺 . Your 2nd big step is a challenge. That step is selecting a digital marketing agency that is right for you and your business. 🕵️ . Fact is there are so many digital agencies out there. Whether boutique or full service, each of these agencies claim to be the best. 💕 . How do you shortlist them before you make your 1st contact? 📝 . SELECTION FACTORS ✒️ . Let me give you some pointers. . 1⃣ GOOGLE PAGE CHECK . As soon as you enter “digital marketing agency [your city]” in Google search, check names of agencies coming on Page one ORGANIC search. Those are the agencies you assess first as they are doing something right to deserve Page one search status. 📌 . 2⃣ WEBSITE CHECK . Check out the website of each digital marketing agency you come across. Browse through its pages. 📖 . What kind of vibes do you get from the agency content? How smooth is the browsing? How is the agency coming across to you? 💻 . 3⃣ SOCIAL MEDIA CHECK . Check social media accounts of agency that are listed on its website. Is the agency posting regularly there? What kind of content is there? 🤳 . 4⃣ BLOG CHECK . Check whether agency has a blog. If “Yes”, then what date was the last blog published. If “No”, then it's a minus. Why isn't the agency blogging? Aren't they into content marketing - a crucial element of digital marketing? 🖱️ . 5⃣ TEAM CHECK . Check whether agency lists out its team members on its website. Most agencies don't do this. But those who do, consider them more professional. 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 . Go ahead. All the best. 🤞👍 . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline #websitedesign #blogging
HOW DIGITAL MARKETING AGENCIES EVALUATE YOU 📋 . If you are a business owner and decide to go for digital marketing, then you take some action. 🏃 . This action in most cases would be that you get in touch with a digital marketing agency. 📞 . Did you know that digital marketing agencies also evaluate you as a prospective client, before deciding to work with you? 🔎 . MY STORY 🎬 . Last month I personally met guys in seven digital marketing agencies in my city. I had assessed work of these agencies and based on merit I met them. 🖱️ . A relative of mine wanted to have his personal website redesigned. Currently he has his own hosting but his website is in HTML code. He wanted his website to have a simple CMS like Wordpress so that his team could upload content on their own. 💻 . I contacted agencies and briefed them on our website requirement. 📃 . HOW AGENCIES REACTED 🚹 . I went to 7 agencies located in 7 different city locations in a single day. 🐰 . The agency owners/reps listened to me patiently. They too shared their thoughts with me. I requested each of them to mail me a proposal. They agreed. 🐤 . Two agency owners however did have reservations in sending a proposal and conveyed to me. They gave me a verbal quotation for the website work. 🦋 . Finally I got three agency proposals in the mail out of 7 agencies in a few days. Two of these agencies even followed up on their proposal. 🗨️ . AGENCY THINKING 🤔 . In my opinion, this is how agencies thought about our business. . 1⃣ Client project doesn't have much merit. Can't give time to it. . 2⃣ Client project doesn't have much ROI. Money returns on project not much. . 3⃣ Can't spare agency teams on client project. Got other high value ROI projects on hand to complete. . (BTW, we haven't finalised any agency proposal yet.) 🐢 . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #marketingdigital #marketingonline

WHY DIGITAL MARKETING IS POINTLESS...FOR YOU 🤖 . Most people agree that digital marketing is very important today. But you are among the few who disagree. You think it is pointless. 🔕 . Here are three reasons why you think so. . #1. NO WEBSITE ❌ . You have no website or blog for your business. Because you feel digital marketing is pointless...even worthless. 🚮 . Having an online headquarter like your business website or blog is critical and STEP ONE for digital marketing. Yet, you choose not to have one. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #2. NO BUSINESS SOCIAL ACCOUNT ❌ . You do have a personal Facebook or Instagram or Twitter account. But you don't have a business account on FB, Instagram or Twitter. You don't think much of it. 🔇 . Having a business social account allows you to run valuable ads promoting your product or service to interested people. Yet you feel otherwise. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . #3. NO REGULAR SOCIAL POSTING ❌ . You don't post regularly on your private account about what you are doing in your business. You don't feel the need for it. 🤔 . Most digital marketers would say that posting daily about different aspects of your business is best and ideal. It helps to really connect prospective customers with your business. You prefer to shrug it off. Fine. Your choice. 🏁 . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #socialmediatips #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #websites #websitedevelopment
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TAKE ACTION 🏋️ . Are you done with your thinking? 🤔 . I mean you have been thinking about some problem. Maybe it is one problem or multiple problems. For the past 3 days or 3 weeks or even 3 months you have been thinking about it, analysing it. 🔄 . I think you need to stop your thinking today. What you need to do today is take your first action. That's it. Why? ♻️ . #1. ACTION = RESULTS 📌 . Yes. It is only action that will get you any results. In other words, if you are thirsty, then you need to take action. Pick up that glass of water in front of you and bring it to your lips. Mere thinking won't do it. 🔍 . #2. ACTION = BETTER DECISIONS 📌 . When you take action, you get new thought patterns that help you decide on taking even better action. You see, action stimulates the brain and unites your being towards getting desired results. 📨 . #3. ACTION = HOPE 📌 . Hope hides behind action. Hope appears right in front of you once you start taking action. Both go together. As long as you are taking action, hope stays with you. Action stops, hope goes back in hiding. 🚷 . So, you know what to do now. You have given enough time to thinking. ➡️ . It's time to take massive action now. ▶️⏩ . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #businessowner #businessman #businesswoman #action #actionsspeaklouderthanwords #thoughts #thought #hope #hopeful #decision #decisions #decisionsdecisions #recliner #reclinersofa
WHY YOU NEED TO TRACK YOUR TIME ⏰ . Time they say is one commodity that you can't buy with any amount of money. This is why time is the great leveller. 🕑 . Both rich and poor get equal measure of time to use it to their advantage. You always receive a new set of 24 hours daily, just like everyone else. Can you use that time well? 🔔 . MINDLESS MINUTES 🐀 . Yes. You need to keep strict track of your time. You know time is money isn't it? 💷 . Then why aren't you using your common sense and spending time as carefully as you spend money? 💸 . You don't just throw away your money impulsively at anything you fancy. You think about it and then spend money. 🤔 . Sad thing is you don't think much about spending the precious quota of time that you get every 24 hours. Most times you spend away your minutes and hours mindlessly daily. You don't get anything worthwhile in return for that time spent. Then you get frustrated and disappointed with yourself as success eludes you. 🎲 . TRACK IT 🎯 . Now I offer you a small solution. Track your time. It's completely up to you to adopt it….or not. 🤹 . Since yesterday I have started using this android app called 'Smarter Time’. It tracks my daily time activity. I keep adding activities I am doing at any point. I think it is useful. ✔️ . The objective here is that both your personal and professional life get valuable minutes of nurturing daily. 🔁 . This app could help you analyse and allot your minutes and hours properly to activities that fill you with peace and satisfaction. 🤸 . All the best. 👍 . . . . . . #digitalraza #digitalmarketing #digitalmarketingagency #socialmedia #internetmarketing #digitalmarketer #lucknow #lucknowblogger #entrepreneur #content #contentmarketing #socialmediaagency #socialmediamarketing #businessowner #digitalselling #digitalagency #creativeagency #agency #agencylife #businessman #businesswoman #time #timemanagement #timepass #timemanagementtips
