Founder of SmilePalooza! Dr. Darold Opp Focuses on Gamification as a Successful Growth Hacking Strategy for Dental Practices

Posted by admin on Sep 2nd, 2014

Dr. Darold Opp, founder of Advanced Family Dentistry and Smile Palooza says that the desire to play games is hardwired into human beings and that the gaming psychology can help dentists attract and keep patients.

ABERDEEN, SD – September 2, 2014 – Dr. Darold Opp, DDS, founder of Advanced Family Dentistry and SmilePalooza!, recently posted a blog on his website entitled “Grow Your Dental Practice Through Practicing Gamification.” Dr. Opp’s creation of the annual SmilePalooza! event is a perfect example of the ultimate use of the growth hacking strategy of gamification.

As Dr. Opp says, “Games seem to compel us to become good, or the best, at a specific activity in order to be rewarded for our expertise.” He turns to Albert Einstein to verify this notion. Einstein says, “You have to learn the rules of the game. And then you have to play better than anyone else.”

Dr. Opp is no stranger to Gamification. Although this strategy is just now making its way into the dental profession, Dr. Opp has been a pioneer in its use. He acknowledges that the SmilePalooza! event which he created is the forerunner of gamification in the dental profession. Dr. Opp says, “ Talk about a game, and a game changer! This event is what my patients and employees look forward to all year long. It is an event that assures new patients flow into my office steadily, easily and virtually effortlessly.”

Nick Nemeth, A Dallas Tax Attorney, Has Just Added A New Blog To His Website Discussing How To Overcome An IRS Tax Dispute

Posted by admin on Sep 2nd, 2014

The Founder of a Dallas Tax Law Firm, Nick Nemeth, offers four bits of important information for readers.

Dallas, TX –September 2, 2014- As the leader of a groundbreaking Dallas and Fort Worth Tax Law Firm, tax attorney Nick Nemeth has added a blog entry to his internet homepage. The blog, titled “How to Keep Your IRS Controversy From Ruining Your Life: Four Steps” shares four important tips for taxpayers.

Nemeth writes, “An IRS dispute is every taxpayer’s worst nightmare. Most people have heard horror stories about IRS abuse from a friend, relative, or colleague who found themselves in a tax controversy. But it is important to know that you can keep your tax controversy under control if you act quickly. Too often, taxpayers make strategic mistakes which end up making their situation worse. Here are four steps to take immediately:

1) Only provide the information specifically requested by the IRS. When the IRS requests information from a taxpayer, often the taxpayer decides to “go the extra mile” in order to impress the IRS, and so they provide information above and beyond what the IRS requested. But by doing so, the taxpayer invites the IRS to scrutinize this additional information as well, which often ends up making the situation worse. Give the IRS what they require and nothing more.

2) Make sure to meet all IRS deadlines. It’s tempting to ignore your IRS problem in hopes that the agency will leave you alone. But this won’t happen, and all you will do is make matters worse and accumulate additional penalties and interest. Don’t miss IRS deadlines.

3) Get an IRS lawyer on your team. Don’t take on the IRS by yourself. The IRS relies on intimidation and aggressive tactics, and they are very good at bullying taxpayers into compliance. An IRS attorney, on the other hand, won’t be intimidated. He or she will know what the IRS can and cannot do, enabling them to keep the agency in check. Don’t face the IRS alone!”

Fort Worth and Dallas Tax attorney Nick Nemeth and his team in the area are skilled at practicing tax law and representing clients against the IRS. They spend their time helping business owners and taxpayers work through their life-altering IRS controversies. Click here to read the whole blog

About Michael Swift:

Michael Swift is a California native and real estate broker with over 23 years of real estate counseling and sales experience. He lives in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area with his wife Tara, daughter Aviana and son Alec, who are his BIG why in life and are at the root of his success over the years.

Receiving his real estate license at the young age of 19 back in 1991, Michael read every book on the subject of real estate and customer care that he could get his hands on. He also went to as many real estate seminars as he could in order to learn as much about the business of real estate as possible. Although real estate is a tough business to succeed in, especially for someone who was so young at the time, Michael flourished by focusing all of his time and efforts making sure that his clients were more than satisfied with their real estate experience. Flash forward 23 years…Michael currently attributes 93% of his business to the referrals of his past and current clients, which says a lot about what his clients feel about him and his business.

Michael focused primarily on helping people out of foreclosure through forbearance agreements and short sales for his first 4-5 years in the business during the real estate down cycle of 1991-1995. Due to his overwhelming success helping people negotiate these complicated scenarios, he was sought after by many real estate brokers in the community to help with their clients as well. He was recruited to Re/ Max Executive in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1993 as an Associate Broker to help train all of the office agents on how to successfully negotiate forbearance agreements (the modifications of those days) and short sale transactions.
