John Llamas Wins 2021 Davao Blogger Of The Year, Reacts To The Winning Nomination Statements

When you finally find the purpose for a passion, that is when you start doing anything for it consistently.

I was in a virtual sales meeting with a client when the announcement was posted on the FB page. When the notification beep started to sound more of an alarm tone saying that I am tagged on a comment by several Davao Bloggers, I thought: I may have won!” John Llamas, the content creator behind the blog, Johndappercloser, and social media handle @Johndappercloser reminisced the winning moment. He is the 2021 Davao Blogger of Year. It is the most coveted annual accolade given to an official member of the Davao Bloggers Society who best represents the ideals and aspirations of the organization. This award is given to the blogger who has best served the organization and the community in 2021.

We were able to obtain some of the winning nomination statements from the declaration post. We asked John to react to the quotes on why fellow members endorsed him as a candidate for such an award.

“…for his work as a blogger, consistently making blog posts”

Nominator

When you finally find the purpose for a passion, that is when you start doing anything for it consistently.

I created Johndappercloser in 2015 simply as a creative outlet. No brand partners. No regular readers. I went back to writing just like in high school and college months after being promoted as the youngest Sales Manager of the one-call-close sales company that I am working for. This time, I was writing about the corporate lifestyle – sales strategies, motivation, corporate style. When my blog statistics started showing that I may have gained traction from readers, that was when I thought that there is a classified group of corporate people out there who actually related to the topics I write about. That was when I started publishing blog posts more frequently.

Joining DBS in 2017 added dimensions to my blog articles. The brand collaborations coordinated by the organization helped me discover the intricate skill of weaving every brand’s promise into my readers’ work-life dealings through every post I publish. This indeed widened my audience.

“…his accomplishments as an officer by doing his best to communicate with brands.”

Nominator
DBS Virtual Acquaintance Party 2021

Everyone was adjusting when we took over the office as a new set of officers. Our work in maintaining the external relationship of the organization with brands and agencies was really put into a test battery. It was not an easy negotiation every time. Being mindful though, of the organization’s strength and reputation plus the collective efforts of the officers made every partnership successful.

Indeed, the most challenging negotiations that I have participated in so far happened when I was the incumbent VP for External Affairs of a premier blogging community, while the world was facing a pandemic.

“…maintaining an updated IG feed with high-quality photos.”

Nominator

It is flattering that my fellow creators describe my Instagram photos as “high-quality”. Updating an IG feed was actually a challenge during the pandemic. Limited areas to shoot for content inside my living space as well as sporadic creative blocks as results of worrisome scoops from news channels, were just a few of the hurdles that we have to keep on overcoming to maintain the visual narrative of our handle. Knowing the core message that you want to resonate as a brand and sticking to a well-thought-out preset are helpful ways to enjoy creating intentional content on Instagram.

The Awards Belong To You!

“I already concluded 2021 as the most rewarding year so far when Kolm came to our life. Then the Outstanding Davao Blog award was given to our blog, Johndappercloser last Saturday. After less than 48 hours, here is another honor awarded to us. I am so thankful!” Llamas expressed.

Johndappercloser Bags 2021 Outstanding Davao Blog Award: “It was like Leonardo Dicaprio’s journey to his first Oscars.”

Do not ever stop beefing up your talents just because someone told you that you are already great or that you are trying so hard. Do not ever stop beefing up your talents at all!”

After a series of nominations in Davao Blog Awards since joining Davao Bloggers Society (DBS) in 2017, http://www.johndappercloser.com (JDC) bags its first recognition as 2021 Outstanding Davao Blog.

“It was like Leonardo Dicaprio’s journey to his first Oscars.” John Llamas, Chief Content Strategist of JDC described the experience. The accolade was presented by Maria Jose, DBS Trustee during the DBS Sparkly Night – Virtual Christmas Party 2021 via the organization’s official Google Meet account, December 11, 8PM.

From trophy to a virtual badge. Due to advisories regulating social gatherings, this year’s DBA winners were given a special badge that winners may use and post on their blog and social media posts.

Before winning his first Oscar® for Best Actor in 2016 for his performance in “The Revenant”, Dicaprio received a series of nominations as Best Actor for The Aviator in 2005, for Blood Diamond in 2007, and for Wolf of Wall Street in 2014, which by the way is my favorite sales-related movie of him portraying a real-life Closer, Jordan Belfort,” Llamas explained. “These movies showed how masterful Dicaprio is in his craft. Most movie fans even suggest that these deserved him earlier Oscars wins. However, Dicaprio just kept on improving his acting prowess instead of allowing any accolade to validate his caliber as an actor. That is exactly the inspiration that I want to amplify out from our first award – Keep improving. Do not ever stop beefing up your talents just because someone told you that you are already great or that you are trying so hard. Do not ever stop beefing up your talents at all!” Llamas emphasized.

There were no niche categories and other special categories for this year’s Davao Blog Awards. Rather, the top blogs with excellent content that are aligned with the vision of the organization were given the “Outstanding Blog of 2021” Award.

Three more blogs were also declared as 2021 Outstanding Davao Blog. These are http://thepopblogph.com/ by NepC Ledesma, http://davaogeekhub.com/ by Josef Cagas, and https://www.youtube.com/user/JEXXHINGGO by Jexx Hinggo.

We also have listed below the nominations which Johndappercloser received from the previous seasons of the Davao Blog Awards.

  • 2020: No Davao Blog Awards due to the pandemic
  • 2019: Best Special Interest Blog, Finalist
  • 2018: Best Special Interest Blog, Finalist
  • 2017: Best Special Interest Blog, Finalist

A Second Award This Year, Maybe?

Right after the announcement of the Outstanding Davao Blog awardees, Jose also revealed the finalists for this year’s Davao Blogger Of The Year which included Jexx Hinggo of http://www.youtube.com/user/JEXXHINGGO, Olivia Limos of http://www.oc-craft.com, Roxanne Lacap of http://www.roxannelacap.com, and John Llamas of http://www.johndappercloser.com.

This year’s winner, which will be determined through the votes of the official members of the Davao Bloggers Society, will be announced on December 13, 6PM at the DBS Official Members’ Facebook Group Page.

Johndappercloser in 2022

Financial Calmness For Filipinos is the latest advocacy that I want to lobby using my platform. That means more finance blog posts are yet to be published from now on under our Investments and Insurances Blog Series. We have been trying out creating vlogs and reels as well. Those are content pieces that we are excited to produce for Style and for our transitioning lifestyle from corporate to business, the Bleisure Lifestyle. I intend to grow with my readers too as I unlock a new chapter in life! Thus, a Dad Cave section on Johndappercloser is coming up.” Llamas declared.

We hope that you will be visiting http://www.johndappercloser.com more frequently this year. Turning our weblog into a metaverse is a part of our lofty yet doable game plan in the years to come” – Llamas manifested.

Unfolding Why Galaxy Z Fold3 5G Is My Bleisure Smartphone For 2022 And Beyond

With the upcoming surprises and statistics unfolding in 2022 and beyond, I hope your perception is at a clear, uninterrupted display with grit that is more dependable than ever.

A brand new year comes with new surprises and new statistics! Also, in this business era where your electronic signature is trusted now more than ever to authorize transactions digitally, I can not look forward to another unfolding year without prying for a smartphone that is equally enterprising and tenacious as me. I opted for the Samsung Z Flip3 before but I changed my mind. I want the Z Fold3! Here are “D” reasons why:

DISPLAY

With a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2X Infinity Flex Display, the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G provides a wider perception for both business and leisurely dealings throughout the year and beyond!

This foldable’s Multi-Active Window feature allows the display of three live apps simultaneously. Furthermore, your handwriting using its pen can be instantly converted to digital text! Can you imagine how efficient the sales process is, from lead generation to actual sales pitch and ultimately, to the e-signing of contracts? Indeed, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G predisposes you to a performance of tenfold increase.

Since we all agree that all work and no play makes you dull, below is an infographic on how Z Fold3 5G surprises you on your entertainment night, workout day, social media hour, last-minute reservations, and instant deliveries.

DEPENDABILITY

With countless tech brands mushrooming in recent years, I learned to pick those which I can vouch for dependability across work settings from on-site, work-from-home, or even on the go. It is indeed reassuring that Samsung had designed an innovative way of developing and testing the durability of the revolutionary Z Fold3 5G.

This foldable is encased with Armor Aluminum Gorilla Glass Victus which improves protection with enhanced durability. Existing components on the layers of the display panel are optimized as well to maintain the highest durability standards yet.

Here are some of the testing procedures Samsung uses to ensure that the latest Galaxy Z Fold3 5G meets the highest standards possible:

UNFOLD NEW SURPRISES, NEW STATISTICS

The stay-at-home advisory in the past two years had indeed unfolded unexpected adjustments as to how we work and play. We mutated ways on how to manage staff and numbers, how to persuade prospects, and how to take care of existing accounts. Coincidingly, we also evolved how to express and present ourselves, how to socialize and how to be entertained. Noteworthily, trust in remote transactions is stronger now than ever gauged before. With the upcoming surprises and statistics unfolding in 2022 and beyond, I hope your perception is at a clear, uninterrupted display with grit that is more dependable than ever.

Five Wellness Essentials For a Healthier Family in The Workplace

Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

“The listed items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.”

6E0C39C0-2812-483F-B6BD-4399AF5C984F
Are you treated like a family at work?

It is indeed a booster to our sense of belonging every time we reminisce how our mere workmates from the very first day of work become an extended family after how many met deadlines, resolved conflicts and released paychecks with performance bonuses.

But how can you say if the people inside the office really treat you like a family?There are perhaps several ways. The most I am sure of though is when the office people do not just coach you plainly about your corporate responsibilities. It is when these same people also teach you health tips and wellness advisories, “persistently”.

In the list below are wellness essentials I recommend to my family at work. These are my must-have items when I visit my only trusted health retailer, Watsons. These are all inside my work bag per shift.

C0469065-437B-4EC7-A41A-8F3D8C97D829
The list includes items for strengthening immunity, maintaining integrity of the Upper Respiratory Tract (URT) specifically the throat (as this is the most used part during daily sales presentation) and managing daily stress from work. These items are to be used regularly in synergy with healthy food choices, active lifestyle and adequate hydration as well as quality sleep and effective stress reduction strategies.

1. Vitamin C/ Multivitamins (ENERVON C TAB X30 BOTTLE, PhP 195)

The work schedule makes it hard for us to consistently buy the natural food source of vitamins and minerals. This fails us to achieve the enough daily nutritional requirement to be healthy. Thus, having handy tablets at your work pouch makes it easier for a hard working person like you to maintain strong immunity.

2. Antibacterial Lozenges (STREPSILS LOZENGES ORANGE 8X36, PhP 64)

This is indeed the most specific item in the list for the corporate persons who are tasked to talk almost entirely in their work hours like the sales and marketing team. Apart from the daily work demand on your throat, the varying room temperatures among several sales venues makes your throat dry and more vulnerable to pathogens. Ascertain that you have a healthy URT daily to deliver your persuasive spiels. Guard it with an Antibacterial “candy”.

3. Oral Antiseptic (Bactidol Oral Antiseptic 120ml, PhP 186)

Brushing your teeth is not enough to deter the growth of bacteria in your mouth that might predispose you to more serious health concerns. An antiseptic gargle both disinfects your mouth and gets rid of unpleasant smell – a plus point when networking.

4. 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (BIOGENIC ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL 50ML, PhP 28)

Cutting the transmission of disease-causing agents is as easy as spraying an alcohol every after a using your hands. Make it a habit to spray before and after a handshake with charm (not obnoxious).

5. Calming Oil (PROSOURCE EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT CALMING OIL 10ML, PhP 120)

The product in this list which I am the most thankful of. This is my portable and economical “aroma therapy and sleep-inducing scent”. It simply works like an instant drug for me. It relaxes, soothes and brings me to a sound sleep like magic. Roll that stress away!

6. (ElectiveFacial Mask (DEOPROCE COLOR SYNERGY EFFECT MASK YELLOW SHEET – Snail and Honey, PhP 65)

D84EF58B-06F7-4871-9ACF-E4478A2A0252
The agent in the Snail slime highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

Skin care products which contain Snail extract had helped me a lot in maintaining a pleasant complexion for two years now. The agent in the Snail slime which repairs damaged tissues and restores hydration made my skin look more well-nourished and highlighted my face to dictate confidence, credibility and presence in my corporate dealings.

May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home and at work too!

When we start looking after each other’s health, not just because we value the contribution of that person to the department’s success, but more importantly because we care for the life aspirations of that person, we do not plainly see the structure as an organizational chart anymore. Now, it is a family tree. A new normal in the workplace. May nothing can easily topple your team’s immunity. Have a strong, healthy family at home

and at work too!

Menswear and Christmases in the Wild | Three Looks for Safari-themed Parties

Following the dress code is a social manner.

Christmas parties, may it be hosted by your company, your clan or a comrade, turn out to be merrier (and more Instagam-worthy) when guests join the fun of dressing up according to the prescribed party outfit. Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.

What if this year, the invitation states “Safari Night”, “Christmas in the Wild”, or “African Christmas”?  Here is a three-look style guide to mingle!

A safari style color palette for your reference.

The colors in the safari style palette are easy to mix and match. These colors exude both manliness and the flora and fauna of the wilderness. Before going to shops just to buy a new piece for the party, skim through your closet first. You might already own one or even all the pieces with the safari colors that you can work on in achieving a fitting look for the party.

ABOUT THE LOOK: This is a Preppy Metro-Casual outfit. A smart casual look consists of a golden brown knitted polo and a green chino with light brown plaid pattern. Plaid suggests both the preppy and yuletide vibe. Knit is an opportune fabric for the Christmas breeze. Complete the look with a black tasseled leather loafer.

Brand Partners, Thank You!

True to all other dress codes, identify a celebrity or influencer, a movie/ TV series character who looks good at wearing it. Or an occupation who is associated to the theme. Identify and wear not just the outfit but as well as the persona. Treat your look as a costume and strut it with the associated attitude.

ABOUT THE LOOK : This is a “Lux Tent Safari Dinner” attire. A semi-formal safari dinner look inspired from both a hunter and an affluent safari tourist. The all-white monochrome of the pair is accessorized with safari-colored scarf and a safari hat with plaid pattern. Fabric for the undershirt and polo is light cotton while the pants’ is made out from linen. Finish the look with a brown tasseled leather loafer and a just-came-from-the-safari-trip vibe of satisfaction.

Equally significant to the merriment, following the dress code is a social manner.



SAFARI LOOK 3

Wear the Print | The Waterfront Insular Hotel Davao “Bold and Bright Holidays” Christmas Tree Lighting 2019

Prints (and patterns) are loud details to show how good are you at following the prescribed party attire. There are prints which are synonymous to the motif. These can be considered as safe, easy and predictable choices. Just be that wearer who gives an extraordinary bearing to such prints. Stand out as you own it “not” the way everyone wearing the same print is doing.

ABOUT THE LOOK : Here is a “Classique Leopard” garb. A cocktail night look with the classic animal print long sleeve. The shirt is purposely unbuttoned for a seductive play of the print. The pair is a complementing light brown pants with a high waist cut for a more dapper stand. Climax the ensemble with a well-polished black tassel loafer.

There are ways to pull off a “de rigueur“ outfit without spending much. Know the elements of the motif. These are the palettes, prints and persons associated to the theme. Be creative. Strut your look as it is your own style. Ultimately, enjoy being a true merrymaker with substance and social manner as you party!

You are going to a party to mingle, right? Then start “mingling” by dressing up with such reason. And remember, Christmas socials should get wilder every year. Merry Christmas!

5 Types of Books Salespeople Can Buy Cheaper at the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale

Never ever judge a book by its price.

The syllabus of the Selling profession warrants more than just the art (and science) of closing deals. It includes elective subjects which are helpful for both before and after signing the purchase contract.

Learning about these subjects does not require admission to any university  though. You can use some of the 7% of your income which you allotted for  continuous education, to own books which help you earn more commissions. Get more value of such budget when you shop 50% – 90% cheaper books at the biggest book sale in the world. 

The Big Bad Wolf Book Sale specializes in providing the widest selection of books at the lowest possible prices. The Sale offers brand new English books at 50% – 90% off recommended retail price, with the primary aim to instill reading habits by providing readers access to affordable quality books.

Here are 5 types of books you can own cheaper aside from Sales and Marketing Books, when the Big Bad Wolf Book Sale visits your sales territory:

*Sales and Marketing books are found at the “Businesses and Economics” section of the Non-Fiction corner inside the venue.

1. CRIME NOVELS. When you sell, you convince the prospect, right? How about reading how a killer “convinces” everybody else that he is innocent?

“We are all criminals varied in grave and escape plans.” Look for this section at the Big Bad Wold Book Sale!

2. FINANCE.  The acme of a successful Closer is being the CEO of their own company. That journey mandates mastery in handling money and resources. This subject also helps you when facilitating your prospect’s buying decision.

3. SELF-HELP/ MOTIVATIONAL. Closers are self-starters who love instructions. Own books that you can revisit when a crisis haunts. Hoard these genres.

Eyeing for this on the VIP DAY, November 21. VIP PASS Giveaway below!

4. PSYCHOLOGY. Buying is a tricky human behavior. It is powerful when you know how to dissect a prospect, neurons by neurons from the moment you meet them to the moment of their final decision. And at rare but real instances, when they change their mind post-sales.

5. LEGAL/ HISTORY. Every purchase requires documentation. Legal terminologies, phraseologies and exemplary cases of law interpretation are not harmful to be knowledgeable at.
