As an investor, once you start thinking about the future of stock markets, you may chill going down your spine.

This financial editor joined Banyan Hill Publishing in 2013 and has been mainly focusing his publications on asset protection and low-risk investment strategies. He is currently the editor of the Plan B Club, Alpha Stock Alert, and The Bauman Letter. Recently, this editor shared his market crash wealth protection tips to help investors make the right moves in these uncertain times.
Embracing asset protection
Ted Bauman advised investors to embrace asset protection rather than panic to protect their wealth. He pointed out that an investor who does not come up with a protection plan for their wealth are bound to lose it in case of a market crash. The best plan to protect your assets is having a protective barrier around your investment portfolio. The Banyan Hill Publishing editor mentioned that eliminating risky ventures from your investment portfolio goes a long way in creating a protective barrier around your wealth. He added that this is a technique that most successful investors use when the market uncertainties get to unpredictable levels. Ted Bauman said that this tip would cushion an investment portfolio well enough to survive a market crash. To know more about him click here.
Investment protection through bonds and stocks
Another way an investor can protect their investment according to this Banyan Hill Publishing editor is through bonds and stocks. He pointed out that these uncertain times require an investor to carefully and skillfully invest in both stocks and bonds. Bonds have low returns on investments but are less susceptible to falling victim to a market crash. On the other hand, stocks have better returns on investments but are riskier. Ted Bauman said that since the market crash cannot be pinpointed, it is wise to invest in both bonds and stocks to be on the safe side whether it occurs or not.

Let’s face it, junk mails can be a nuisance. This is especially so when you are looking forward to that all important email for an appointment or business deal. Email can be a vital communication tool, alright, but when unnecessary emails get in the way, it can be a disastrous endeavor.
Well, this is the same problem that Jojo Hedaya and Josh Rosenwald; two college buddies, had to contend with. During a joint project they were working on, Jojo Hedaya says he was getting frustrated by the fact that Josh was not replying to his messages early enough, sometimes not at all. Little did he know that Josh was struggling to get rid of all the unnecessary emails and would sometimes delete important emails in the process.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, and having noted that junk mail was getting in their way, these two young innovators went out of their way to find a solution. This is how Unroll.me came to be. Unroll.me is a revolutionary email organization tool that helps keep the most important emails in one folder and keeps the rest in another for future review.
Usually, one would receive updates, newsletters and subscription emails, all in one email. Since the major ISP was not doing enough to keep these organized, they took it upon themselves to find the solution and have never regretted their decision.
By scanning through your emails Unroll.me compiles all the junk mail into one folder, hereby dubbed “The Rollup”. From here, you can then decide on what stays and what goes. The best thing about this feature is that you can set specific times to receive the roll-up. As such, you can choose your most convenient times when you are free to check them out.
The two entrepreneurs met by fate courtesy of their travel to Israel for further studies. Surprisingly, they also noticed that they had the same birthdays, and this kept them even closer. They note that through their startup, millions of email users can finally rest easy with the assurance that their emails are well organized and can find the most important of these much easily.

Krishen Iyer is the CEO of Managed Benefits Services, a consulting firm that generates leads focused on health and dental insurance verticals, or “niche” marketing from a specific industry. Small changes can be made while tracking the impact they have over time. In 2019, some things have to change about current marketing techniques. One potential marketing technique when it comes to health insurance sales is to use Facebook as part of your marketing budget. Krishen Iyer advises to use Instagram as another option where you can promote your company in front of potential clients because Instagram leads to visibility. See Iyer’s marketing tips here https://chronicleweek.com/2018/09/krishen-iyer-top-marketing-tips/
For example, Krishen Iyer reminds us that you can advertise the fact that your clinic treats young children. Another way to promote your company is to use Chatbots, which interact with the user to send them in the right direction. New site visitors have easy access to any answers they may need. Video marketing is another 2019 marketing-savvy technique that you have the required expert-status to manage people’s health problems. Videos used the right way can promote an atmosphere of trust if you have adequate lighting in the room you film the video in. Live video is in a similar category when it comes to video marketing.
Live video on Youtube or Facebook has the means to get natural traffic onto your feed. Krishen Iyer says that videos can establish a person’s ability to answer questions on the air, giving real-time answers as well as feedback. You get a massive exposure, which generates attention out of it. Interactive content such as a blog post, articles, and email autoresponders seem to still have a place in a marketer’s toolkit. Text content can be laced with internal links that take people to where they want to go in an instant, as email marketing can still be used as well. Email marketing allows a professional to stay in contact with their clients, and it still works well in 2019. Adjusting your strategy is important to make it work over the long term.
