LEGO DOTS offers a fun new way to design surfaces and customise for individual self-expression on Animal Crossing

Fans of Animal Crossing and LEGO DOTS rejoice! Time to flavour your world of Animal Crossing: New Horizons with new colourful LEGO DOTS patterns, now available.

Earlier this year, the 2D tile-based play concept LEGO DOTS was introduced when artist Camille Walala unveiled ‘HOUSE OF DOTS’ – an interactive installation that demonstrated the endless creative possibilities this play theme provides. With its multiple shapes and colours, the company offers a fun new way to design surfaces and customise for individual self-expression.

The concept was created based on research showing that kids increasingly look to shape their creative confidence through more personalised forms of play where they can explore freely and express themselves through their own designs.

Consumers can add a range of colourful and exciting DOTS patterns to your own personal Animal … Read more

It’s been a pretty unpleasant week for shareholders on both sides of the Atlantic. Indeed, this week is shaping up to be the worst since the March market meltdown. As I write, the US S&P 500 has shed almost 200 points (5.7{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b}) since last Friday. Here in the UK, the FTSE 100 index has dipped around 270 points (4.6{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b}) in a week. Maybe these steep weekly falls explain why Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) has had a poor week. For the record, the Lloyds share price is down 1.3p (4.4{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b}) this week.

The Lloyds share price remains volatile

As I write (late on Friday afternoon), the Lloyds share price hovers around 27.95p, down nearly 1.2{429fc2506e610357e12b2a5665db82631200a2e00b3a1d8839077d76f18e2e8b} today. At this price, the entire group is worth just £20bn — an incredible £32bn less than its market value before Christmas last year.

At its 52-week high, the Lloyds share price closed at 73.66p … Read more

Twitter will no longer restrict the New York Post’s account on its platform after changing its practice of not retroactively overturning past enforcement actions.

The New York Post was locked out of its Twitter account earlier this month following the publication of a story on Oct. 14 that contained allegations about Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. The company had also initially blocked users from sharing the link to the article but reversed its decision two weeks ago.

“Decisions made under policies that are subsequently changed & published can now be appealed if the account at issue is a driver of that change,” Twitter said on Friday. “We believe this is fair and appropriate.”

Even well-positioned brands with solid marketing results need to revise and update their strategies at least once a year based on changing external factors, internal opportunities, and results achieved by implementing existing strategies. After all, your success greatly depends on your ability to recognize emerging trends and build them into your strategy, to make sure your brand is still relevant in the ever-changing marketplace. If you’re not getting the most from your email marketing or implemented VoIP solutions, think about changes to optimize on these strategies as you build your new strategy.

In recent years, digital outlets stole the spotlight for businesses as channels to market their products or services effectively because they produce a high ROI (return on investment). With the rise of social media, AI-driven chatbots, and similar communication tools, many marketers wrongfully dubbed email marketing as passé. In reality, email marketing grows more relevant as a unique … Read more
