SA Airlink to fly straight to bush lodges

first_img5 May 2015Visitors to South Africa’s most luxurious lodges in Mpumalanga can now fly directly to their destination from almost anywhere in the world thanks to a new service from independent airline SA Airlink.SA Airlink signed a deal with Nedbank Capital in April, which will see the privately owned airline acquire four new Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft. These will be used to fly passengers to upmarket lodges in the Sabi Sands Private Game Reserve, Nedbank Capital said in a statement issued in April.SA Airlink, which is in a strategic alliance with SA Airways (SAA), is a feeder airline specifically aimed at linking the smaller towns, regional centres and hubs throughout South Africa. According to its website, the airline currently carries more than 1-million passengers a year on more than 35 000 flights.Roger Foster, the chief executive of SA Airlink, said the airline had been involved in building up Skukuza Airport near Kruger National Park, which had created awareness among international travellers of the options when travelling to Sabi Sands, Business Day reported on Tuesday.Mpumalanga’s Skukuza Airport reopened in 2014, which was facilitated by SA Airlink “as part of a broader plan to introduce “seamless connectivity and convenience for national and international tourists wanting to visit the Kruger National Park area”, the statement said.The four lodges are: Ulusaba, Singita, Arathusa, and Londolozi.The acquisition of the Cessna aircraft was the final step in SA Airlink’s plan to grow its well-established feeder flight network by adding flights directly to a number of the most popular game lodge destinations in South Africa.Foster said passengers would be able to use the SAA flight reservations facility to arrange their flights all the way to their final destination.SA Airlink’s code franchising agreement with SAA removes “the hassle of having to arrange separate road shuttle services or complicated secondary aircraft charters from the main centres to their end-destinations”, he said.According to a report by the World Travel & Tourism Council, travel and tourism directly contributed more than 640 000 jobs and more than R103-billion of South Africa’s total GDP in 2013, James Geldenhuys, head of aircraft finance for Nedbank Capital, said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Sales and Marketing Are Not Merging

first_imgIt’s fashionable to suggest that sales and marketing are merging. There is a line of thinking about how salespeople should use content to communicate with their clients and prospective clients that conflates these two functions into one, ignoring the different very different outcomes each delivers. The truth is that sales and marketing are not merging, nor should they. But they both benefit from better understanding each others’s roles.What Marketing DoesMarketing is one-to-many. Marketing promotes the business, helps position offerings, and advertises. Marketing creates awareness and helps leverage what makes your company different, something it can achieve at scale and a distance. Marketing can also do a lot to help salespeople, like researching markets, creating personas, developing messaging, and creating content that helps to capture mindshare.Salespeople are not responsible for these marketing outcomes. They are not accountable for the kind of results that would require the one-to-many approach that makes up the bulk of what marketing does. Marketers are not directly responsible for creating and winning new opportunities. Salespeople are responsible for the one-to-one selling between a company and a prospect.Even though the dictionary definition states that marketing sells—and many organizations now rely on marketing alone—marketing does not engage in one-to-one selling. When marketing is at its best, it creates something more than leads. It does the work that makes it easier for salespeople to develop and win new opportunities.What Salespeople DoSalespeople create opportunities by directly connecting with their prospective clients. What they do cannot be easily scaled, nor is it easily done at a distance (although some of the new technological tools we use can remove distance as an obstacle). Success in sales in individual. The skills of selling to one person (or one company and their team) are incredibly complex and, at the highest levels, as rare as the skills of an incredible marketer.People who sell are responsible for creating and winning new opportunities. They have to secure individual meetings, explore change with their dream clients, collaborate on what the right solution might look like, build consensus with the stakeholders, negotiate the right investment, and resolve the client’s concerns before asking directly for the client’s business. Marketers do none of this, and the most common call to action now is a link or a form, not ink on paper.When salespeople are at their best, they are creating and pursuing opportunities, and ultimately, winning them.Why People Say Sales and Marketing Are MergingSome suggest salespeople should spend their time creating content as part of their role in sales. This is to confuse the roles and responsibilities of sales and marketing. It’s also a terrible idea. There is no serious person who believes that salespeople can create content every day, have that content vetted by marketing and legal, have art designed, and publish their work.Selling is not content marketing.Indeed, salespeople can now share content with their clients directly. They can share relevant and helpful content over the social channels, and they can share it using more direct forms, like mail, email, delivering it by hand, or some other medium.There are two outcomes from using content, neither of which rise to the level to be called marketing: Building their credibility with their prospects and nurturing relationships.Building CredibilityYou want your dream clients to know you. However, you want to be known for the value you create, for your competency and your expertise. For the last decade, many have confused the idea of being known as a personal brand-building exercise. There is some kernel of truth in that idea. However, too much of what some pass off as marketing is building a personality brand. You see evidence of this by the number of people who share their morning workout routine (something that isn’t likely to expose your deep insights in your industry or capture mindshare).Salespeople don’t need to create content to prove their expertise. They can use the content marketing builds and comment on why it’s important, why it should cause their dream client to do something different, and how it is helping other people produce greater results. They can use content to answer the question their dream client might have in advance of them asking it. They can also use content to nurture their dream clients over time.Nurturing RelationshipsWhen marketing sends an email, it is one-to-many, and often something that the receiver perceives as spam. When a salesperson takes the time to print the content, highlight the critical parts, write a note on why it’s important, and send it by mail or scan it and send it by email, it’s nurture content. In one case, the person who sent it to you doesn’t know you and never will. In the second case, the person sharing the content has met with you or is working towards that outcome. One is impersonal; the other is personal.You should be nurturing your dream clients. You should be building your credibility. And, unless you want to work in marketing, you should confine your role to that of a salesperson, staying in your lane and allowing marketing to remain comfortably in theirs.If you want to be closer to marketing, share your insights with them, ask them for help shaping opportunities, and request marketing content that helps you convince your dream client that it’s time to change. If you are in marketing and want to be closer to sales, spend time with in the field, where you can directly see the areas where you can help. Essential Reading!

Low pressure over Bay of Bengal intensifies into depression

first_imgThe well-marked low pressure over the Bay of Bengal intensified into a depression on December 6, raising the likelihood of heavy rainfall, coupled with squally winds in Odisha from December 8.Latest observations and satellite imageries indicate that the low pressure area over southeast Bay of Bengal concentrated into a depression and lay centred about 1,250 km south-southeast of Gopalpur, the met office in Bhubaneswar said.The system is likely to move northwestwards and reach the Andhra Pradesh coast around December 8 evening. It is likely to intensify further into a deep depression in the next 48 hours.

India Today Editor in chief Aroon Purie on special Independence Day package

first_imgIt is a question I ask with cautious optimism. Will this be the year India takes flight? When we look back to 2014, will it be with a sense of satisfaction that a new Government used its mandate to break India free of policy paralysis and a self-inflicted a slowdown? Or will it be with a feeling of regret, that Narendra Modi could not capitalise on India’s big chance, that he frittered it away? More often than not, years of an electoral mandate turn out to be pivotal, and Modi’s BJP won a victory that provides it the initial momentum to reverse the despair about drift in the last years of UPA 2. In a presidential-style general election, voters unambiguously cast themselves on the side of development, of purposefulness, clearing the legislative space for Modi to be able to deliver.Our August 2013 coverOn this, our 67th Independence Day, it is apt that we take stock of whether and how the Government is heeding an young and increasingly impatient India’s desire to be set free. Free to chase its dreams of educational and material betterment, of breaking loose from unnecessary checks on its entrepreneurial ambitions, of following its creative impulses, of providing for its collective well-being, of registering individual triumphs. It is as exhilarating a moment as it is daunting.Our special Independence Day package brings to you the changed India in its many dimensions. It is a change most dramatically visible in the form of 315 new MPs in Lok Sabha. A detailed analysis shows them to be a crosssection as diverse as the polity itself-from doctors to farmers and former bureaucrats to teachers. What is interesting is that one-third of these new MPs have worked their way up the political ladder, fighting elections from the bottom of the electoral pyramid, eventually becoming MLAs and then reaching Parliament. The change they symbolise is the culmination of one journey, and the beginning of another. They bring with them to Sansad Bhavan a fluency with the diverse idioms in which aspiration is expressed in this country.This political churning has left the Left parties on the margins. The decline is visible in West Bengal and Kerala, which they once dominated, and their inordinate influence in educational institutes, cultural groups, and trade unions appears to be in irreversible decline. How the space vacated by them is filled up will of great consequence. Meanwhile, terror cells are becoming more modern with the rise of mobile technology and instant messaging, as are the methods to track them. And India’s foreign policy challenge is to redefine its relationship the United States and China in a time of possibly turbulent transition in its AfPak neighbourhood.Our cover story package, a snapshot of how India is changing, maps the shift in areas as diverse as sport, where young women from small towns and villages are winning international medals consistently, and music, where a new band of ustads are ready to stake their claim. We are now eating differently with the trend moving towards high-value produce such as poultry, fruit and milk products as we gradually rely less on cereals and grain. Our armed forces are becoming more inclusive, attracting soldiers from non-military backgrounds and commissioned officers from smaller towns. And healthcare is undergoing a sea change with new techniques such as genetic mapping paving the way for the timely treatment of illnesses.These are exciting times for a nation that, though 67 years old, is still brimming with youthful energy. The challenge for Prime Minister Narendra Modi now is to take this new India to the world stage, free from the encumbrances of the past and of the backward-looking ideologues itching to attach themselves to his bandwagon. India has a rare opportunity now to soar on the wings of this mostly virtuous change.On that note, Happy Independence Day!To read more, get your copy of India Today here.last_img read more
