liqueurs always sweet?

However, there is more to it than that. For example, liqueurs often have fruit flavors added (such as fruit liqueurs like strawberry or raspberry liqueur), which also makes them taste sweeter. In addition, different types of sugars can be used such as brown sugar or cane syrup instead of regular white sugar. Another thing about sweetness relates to the actual process of making a liqueur; many times, during fermentation, a small amount of sugar will naturally form on the surface and this acts as a natural preservative against bacteria growth, so fermenting liqueurs longer than usual is never a bad idea.

In order to gain this sweet taste, liqueurs usually contain such ingredients as fruit, chocolate, cream and other ingredients. The overall purpose of liqueurs is to give the drinker a sweet flavor, there are not many alcoholic beverages that taste very sweet on their own. When people think about liqueurs, they generally know that they need to accept sweet tasting beverage, such as the very sweet passionfruit liqueur.

Even though liqueurs are sweet, it doesn’t mean that they cannot be mixed with other ingredients to make great cocktails. There is no reason why you can’t use them as components of many different dishes too; there are several ways people have used this type of liquor in the past and plenty more possibilities for future recipes. Just remember how much sugar is included when making your next recipe using a liqueur!

Market Prediction – How to Predict Market Direction

There are various techniques used by traders and analysts to help with market prediction. Most traders will use one type of technical analysis, while others will combine different techniques when  trading on the stock market today. The kind of analysis used will depend on which school the analyst adheres to.  When a trader is stock picking, he will try to find out in which direction the stock picks are moving so that he can get in at the best time to maximize profits. One of the methods used in the stock market is technical analysis. This technique involves looking a historical data on a stock pick. Normally the volumes and price are the main focus, but other data is used as well.Stock charts will be used to look at historical data; this chart analysis will generally be viewed looking at candlestick patterns. The patterns that are formed by the candlestick charts will show where trend reversals may occur. Trend lines may also be used in conjunction with the candlestick patterns. There are many patterns that can form, and each pattern combined with other patterns will indicate a certain condition at a given time period. This information will help with market prediction, which in turn helps when trading stocks.Some candlestick patterns that signal changes are the “morning star”. This pattern follows a time where investors have been panicky and have been selling out of fear over a period of time. The morning star appears and is noted by three candles, with the first day’s candle being black and long, showing that there has been a strong down trend with the stock closing lower than it opened. The second day shows a white short-bodied candle signaling indecision, and shows that the trading range was low. The gap between the first day and second day further indicates that there is the probability that a reversal is occurring. The third day is a long white candle and this signals the bulls have taken control.This pattern is a good indication of a reversal and can be considered part of the market prediction. Traders will then give out advice and stock tips to investors so they they can buy in to the stock while it is increasing in price. This is just one method of using candlestick patterns to determine the direction things will move. There are actually 12 important candlestick patterns that can be used in market prediction, and traders should familiarize themselves with them.

The Secret to Good Marketing

How’s It Going?

In my typical day I hear this question a lot. I ask it a lot. Or a question much like it…

‘How ya’ doing?’

My dad was an old cowboy. He says ‘Howdy’ a lot. So do I. Regardless of the question the answer is much like it.


It’s not really an answer because it’s not really a question. We are not really inquiring about someone’s wellbeing. So we are not given an adequate answer. It is simply a thoughtless greeting.

Unfortunately it is much like this in our approach to business. This can be especially true in the network marketing industry. We are in such a hurry telling someone what we want them to do that we forget to find out what they want.

Think about how we make friends. The ones who ultimately are the closest to us are those who show the most interest in us. And they are the ones in whom we show genuine interest.

We have all known people that show very little interest in us but are quick to talk about themselves. They suck the life out of us. We tend to avoid them when we can. It is the reason most of us have caller ID. But when someone shows a deep interest in us… wants to listen to us…

We want that person in our lives.

Good Marketing Is Like a Friendship

We build good friendships by giving. Good marketing is the same way.

A sales pitch is similar to those people who always want to talk about themselves. They are in the relationship for what they can get out of it. A sales pitch does the same thing. It communicates what is in this whole transaction for the salesperson.

A sales pitch is nothing but you telling someone else what you want them to do.

But good marketing is telling someone else what is in it for them. Just like a good friend begins by listening to the other person… good marketing begins by listening.

However in marketing we do not have direct exposure to all of our potential clients. So we have to do our research. We have to know our market and our prospective clients.

Put very simply we need to walk in our potential clients’ shoes. We need to know how they think… what problems they have… what they really want. Just like listening to a friend we need to listen to the needs of our prospects.

Instead of focusing on ‘getting the sale’ focus on getting good information about your prospects. Picture them living their lives. Understand what problems they want to solve. Get a feel for what they are looking for.

Is That How We Do It?

For those of us in direct sales – that includes network marketing – we often fail miserably at this point. Usually we have absolutely no regard for what our prospect really wants. We are so concerned with convincing them to sign on the dotted line that we don’t hear a word they say.

It is all about overcoming objections and moving the client to see things the way we see them. The goal is getting them to act – buy a product or join an organization. We think the main thing is our products or our opportunity. But this misses one crucial point.

The prospect is the most important part of the whole thing.

People don’t buy because you want them to. People buy because of what they want. They have problems they need to solve. So they buy products and services because they want to solve these problems.

Good marketing uncovers these problems and offers genuine solutions. It doesn’t presuppose the problems. It discovers them by listening – researching.

Often people in direct sales make the mistake of being like the person others avoid. They talk on and on about how great the product or opportunity is. But they never stop talking long enough to hear what the customer is saying.

Let your marketing listen for you. Take the time to discover what your customers (prospects) really want. Understand their problems. Then offer genuine solutions the way a listening friend would help you.
