Build Urgency Into Your Marketing Message So Your Prospects Act Now
Trey Ryder writes "Urgency is not the same as sales pressure. Sales pressure is force applied by the salesperson who wants your money. On the other hand, urgency is the need to act soon based on a person's circumstances."

Dear Editor:
I just wanted to inform Immigration Daily readers about a huge victory for one of my clients in the 8th circuit, Sidikhouya v. Ashcroft, which held that a period of voluntary departure is automatically stayed during the pendency of a timely motion to reopen or reconsider. This has broad effect for immigrants.
