Mobile Point of Sales

Small Businesses Implementing Mobile Point of Sales

In today’s business we strive for convenience, options, and customer satisfaction. With small businesses we are sometimes limited in our technology. As larger corporations have millions of dollars backing their ideas, smaller businesses must cut corners and find low cost solutions. For those in a market where point of sales are concerned, the low cost solution for high tech payment processing has arrived. With the innovations made by iPhone and the Android market, small businesses have more options than ever to create a business that is seamless. Now with the integration of mobile card readers, even the smallest business owner can take credit card payments into the future.

A mobile card reader is an attachment for the iPhone and Android powered phones.  When used with the corresponding app, it allows customers to swipe their credit cards on the phone to make payments for products or services. The app then tracks the sales and e-mails a receipt to the customer instantly. This makes it easy to take advantage of impulse buying when the feeling is at its peak. With the ease of just swiping and signing, the sales are easily closed.

With the arrival of several companies offering mobile card readers, their main target is small business owners. Whether you are a landscaper, pizza maker, or even a used item reseller, taking credit card payments are easier than ever.  Here is a breakdown of the two leaders who offer free mobile card readers when you sign up.

Square:

Square is a new startup company, which has taken the mobile payment processing business by storm. Their innovative stamp sized card reader easily attaches to the phone and allows for quick payments. They offer a free card reader when you sign up, allowing small businesses to get started with no initial costs.

Unlike other companies offering mobile payments, their innovation includes their fees. There is no charge for their app and their fee is set at 2.75% of all swiped payments and 3.5% + .35¢ of all charges entered manually.  There are no monthly maintenance fees and no addition fees for high volumes of sales.

Intuit:

Like Square, Intuit offers their card readers free with signup. However, their fees are set in two groups. For monthly sales up to $1,000, their fees are 2.70% for card swipes and 3.70% for manually entered payments. For monthly sales exceeding $1,000 their fees are dropped to 1.70% for card swipes and 2.70% for manually entered payments. However, it also includes a $12.95 monthly service charge.

The use of mobile payment processing isn’t new to the sales world; however, it has never been easier for the small business owners to utilize the convenience and technology until now. The system has been proven useful earlier this year when a Girl Scout troop in Silicon Valley used the mobile payment service to sell around 400 boxes of cookies to Facebook’s headquarters.  Later this year this technology will be seen as The Salvation Army uses Square’s mobile payment dongle on Android phones to accept donations with their bell ringers. If the test proves successful in the limited launch, bell ringers of the future will trade their red buckets for an Android powered phone.

Why Your CV Just Isn’t Cutting It

currículum

When you are looking for a job, your CV or resume is the window through which employers can look at you in order to determine whether you are appropriate for the role. They have nothing else to go on other than the words on the page and so, unless they are well-crafted and advertise you in a good light, you don’t stand a chance of being successful.

In the current climate, any job opening is going to attract multiple applications and therefore there is going to be keen competition for any role you apply for. Can you really afford to be making mistakes on your CV in such a competitive environment? After all, this is only the first hurdle and any busy employer will not be willing to consider anyone who has made a glaring error straight from the off.

So what are the most common reasons for a CV ending up in the bin without even so much as a second glance?

Spelling/ Grammar Errors –

Even if the actual job you are applying for will never require you to write anything; employers want to know that you have an excellent grasp on language. Therefore a spelling or grammar mistake anywhere in your CV is going to have them reaching for the bin faster than you can say ‘I am writing to apply for the position of…’ These mistakes do happen to the best of us but modern spell checking capabilities and the fact that you should really check and double check your application before sending it means these are unforgivable.

Too Long Or Too Short –

There are no set rules for the length of a CV but ideally it should be kept to one page. Any longer and the person reading it will be reluctant to read the whole thing and may end up not reading any of it. Anything shorter than a page will also be cause for concern as it shows a lack of experience and will look empty compared to others. If you have too many previous jobs to fit them all on one page then consider only including the relevant or important ones. You can always talk about the others when asked at the interview.

A Poor Cover Letter –

A lot of applicants will be so worried about their CV that they forget to put just as much effort into the cover letter. 77% of employers have stated that they didn’t even look at a CV which was preceded by a bad covering letter and so neglecting this part of the application could put you in the bad books from the start. Common mistakes include failing to find a suitable addressee for the letter, writing in a generic way which shows you haven’t tailored your application to the specific job role and even forgetting to attach the CV to the email.

Being Too Honest –

Don’t get me wrong, honesty is a great trait to have but there are times when it may be detrimental for you to be completely open. For example, if you left your last job because you hated it and didn’t get on with your boss then there is no need to mention this in your application for a new job. Never mention why you left your previous job unless you are asked at the interview stage. Doing this could highlight the fact that you could be a problem employee and this will raise alarm bells with the employer. Another example of being too honest is over selling yourself in your CV.

It is natural to have a few lines about what sort of person you are and why you would be a great choice for the role, but this is not a space in which you can blow your own trumpet. If you think you’re great then that’s fine but tone it down a bit so that you don’t come across as cocky or arrogant.

Writing a CV is by no means easy and so if you are struggling to create one that really makes an impact with potential employers then there are many places you can turn to for help. Recruitment agencies, like this, will be able to give you some great pointers and there are also many online resources that can help you with this.

Looking For A Job? Keep These Job Contracting Tips In Mind!

We know that you are excited about landing a job and you might want to sign the contract as soon as you can but don’t be too hasty! If you end up signing something you don’t want, you get stuck with it for a long time. So bring the contract home, prepare a cup of coffee and make sure you comply by the following job contracting tips.

Go Through the Contract Thoroughly

This is the basic job contracting tip that you should follow. You need to go through the contract in detail and understand what your employer is offering you in return for your services. Make sure you go through each and every point in detail; so that you can avoid signing up for something that you do not want to. Look out for the loop holes and phrases with double meanings in the contract, they can create some serious problems for you!

Inquire

If you cannot understand any part or clause of the contract, don’t hesitate to ask your potential employer. With the help of this job contracting tip you can make sure that there are no confusions left and that they won’t create any problems for you in the later phase of the job. You can also hire a lawyer to go through the job contract but it is better if you communicate with the employer and let them know the concerns you have regarding the job. Remember, precaution is better than cure!

What Is The Nature Of The Job?

Make sure that you have a written proof of the nature of your job. Do not rely on the word of mouth or you’ll end up providing more than you bargained for. Make sure that each and every thing about the job is entailed in the contract including the salary. All the terms and conditions regarding the salary should be included in the contract too.

Length of the Contract

We know that you will be cautious enough to abide by this job contracting tip on your own but still we should remind you that you need a written document of the starting and termination date of your contract. Moreover, it is even better if you discuss the leaves and holidays beforehand to save your job from further trouble.

Negotiate

Most people just omit this job contracting tip because they are too afraid to voice their objections. If you do not agree with any part of the contract then you should negotiate with the employer. Convince them that having you will be beneficial for their organization and explain them why should they remove the certain clause from the contract. If it’s something major then you should continue your job search and avoid signing the contract.

If you follow the above mentioned job contracting tips then you can be sure that you have made the right decision at the right time. Your job will be safe and secure as long as your contract lasts. So all the best with your contracts!

Robots.txt

What Is Robots.txt?

robots txt

Robots.txt is a text file which users put on their websites to tell search engines which pages on the site should not be visited. This text file is kept on the server and it controls the various features of our website.It is like telling a child not to do some thing. If the child is good he will follow your instructions but if he is too naughty then he will surely disobey you. So if you have sensitive data then it is very stupid of you to relay fully on robots.txt files. To better understand it, first you must be aware What Robots is .

A robot is a program which is used by search engines to find new websites on the internet. This search is carried out in order to index these websites and to gather information from them. Various terms are used for referring them such as “spiders” , “crawlers” and “bots”

Working of Robots. Working of Robots is categorized into four steps.

Step 1 :-Site Indexing : It finds new websites and stores them in search engine servers.

Step 2 :- Validate Site Content : Here Robots analyze the content of the site and sees them whether they are following the standards or not. If they are properly working as per the laid standards then grade them according to their performance.

Step 3 :- Link Checking : Here robots analyze all the incoming and outgoing links from the website. This analysis help them to grade sites based on their relevancy. various algorithms are used for this purpose.

Where you can find Robots.txt file? You can find Robots.txt file at the root folder of your website.A folder that forms the top most directory on the website and which is accessible to public. It is very important that you should pact the robot.txt file in the root directory because palcing it some where else will not have any effect.

What is the importance of Robot.txt files for webmasters ? For website owners or for webmasters Robort.txt file is very important. As it helps to index the websites in a better way. Robots help to pass information of the website to search engines and search engines can then rank them in a better way.

Structure of a Robots.txt File

The structure of a robots.txt is pretty simple – it is an endless list of user agents and disallowed and allowed files and directories. Basically, the syntax is as follows: User-agent: Disallow: Here, User-agent this specifies the search engine spiders. e.g.

User-agent: Google (Means robots/crawlers from Google)

User-agent: * (Means all search engine robots/crawlers) Allow/Disallow this command tells the search engine spiders which pages to crawl and which one not to crawl. e.g.

User-agent: * Disallow: /temp/ (Means all All user agents are disallowed to see the /temp directory.

How Temporary Work Can Benefit Your Business

Many people, at some point in their lives, have worked as a temp. A temporary worker, or temp, is a person who works for a staffing agency and is “hired out” to different companies, depending on need. From a business standpoint, working with a temporary staffing agency can provide some incredible benefits.

 

temporary work

Temporary Workers are Fantastic for Short Term Projects

Sometimes your business might have a temporary project that requires special attention. These short term projects can be the manufacturing of a seasonal item, special in depth cleaning tasks, construction or remodeling. While often simple in nature, it doesn’t benefit to take the attention of seasoned employees away from their usual jobs. Here is where temps start to shine. Training the temps for a specific short term project is quick and easy, allowing you to set them to task, without the concern of regular production value slipping.

Fill in the Gaps with Temporary Laborers

Sometimes your business might have holes in the workforce. Whatever the reason, whether it be a new project or line, employee turnover or coverage for absences, a Staffing agency can help you fill in the gaps. Some temp agencies have workers on call, to fill in on short notice in case of illness. Another advantage is the ability to scout talent. By using temporary workers, you always have the option to offer them a position with the company. This is a great way to find quality employees that have proven their ability to preform.

Save Money on Labor

The advantage here is twofold. Rather than paying a wage to a worker, your business pays the staffing agency, who then pays their employees. This cuts down on payroll processing and costs as temporary labor is often less expensive than hired labor. Health benefits and vacation time is also paid by the Staffing Agency further allowing you to lower the labor costs for your business.

There are Several Different Business that can Benefit from Temporary Labor

Manufacturing Plants often come to mind when someone says temp work. Here, they are given a quick safety overview and the overall job training and put on a line position. Some companies will rarely hire workers that haven’t worked as a temp for them before.

Call Centers and Office Environments also frequent Staffing Agencies. The agencies that they contract with impose a mandatory aptitude test for their employees before sending them to the office. This often includes basic computer usage, typing proficiency and basic conflict resolution strategy. This not only ensures quality workers, but cuts down on what would as otherwise be additional training hours.

Food Service and Catering is another industry that draws on a large amount of temporary workers as their main wait staff. In this instance, rather than special projects or covering shifts for various companies, workers are trained as wait staff and called in for special events depending on size.

These are just a few of the reasons why working with a staffing agency is incredibly useful to your business or company. By cutting costs, finding quality and skilled workers and having the ability to do so on short notice, you can increase the efficiency of your business and continue to grow and develop profitably.

William Toth is a freelance writer from Lancaster, Pennsylvania, who has been published across the web for a multitude of topics, some of which include: manufacturing, economical trends, and business strategies.

Creating Mobile Presence

sales cover letter

Creating Mobile Presence

According to Pew Internet and American Life Project, over one third of Americans now have an internet enabled smartphone. Even more Americans have mobile phones with mobile web access that can access the internet. With such a large percentage of the population adopting the technology to have the internet in their pocket, it makes sense for a business to include expanding their mobile web presence in their marketing plans. Below are six of the most compelling reasons to have a mobile presence.

Convenience:

When customers are trying to find out information about your business on the go, they use a smartphone to search for your business information. Without a reliable website, they may find outdated and unreliable information from what is available online from other websites. Being able to search and find exactly what they need to know on the go makes life easier for your customers. Without the information they need, they may choose to go elsewhere, knowing that another business has what they want, whether it be menus, hours, services or directions to your location.
Ease of use:

Even if you already have a website for your business, it may not format properly on the small screen of a phone. One of the main problems smartphone users experience is accessing websites that are not properly formatted for their phones, making it difficult to use while away from their computers. Some websites are designed in applications like Flash that may not load on a phone, or use too much memory and crash the browser. Choosing to have a clean and simple mobile web site will make all of the information easy to view and access. Websites formatted for the mobile web prevent annoying navigation and loading problems.
Cost:

Maintaining a mobile website is often very inexpensive, with the fees to design a mobile website also very modestly priced. For most businesses with a large web presence, the cost of developing and maintaining a mobile website will be a small fraction of hosting and server fees for the non-mobile website every month, while providing a useful tool to market your business online.
Growth:

The number of smartphone and mobile web users grow on a daily basis. 7% of U.S. web traffic comes from mobile devices, and that statistic is expected to continue to rise. More users will be accessing mobile websites in the future, making it necessary to consider the expanding market of mobile web users.
Keeping up with the competition:

More and more businesses are seeing the use of a mobile website for users on the go and choosing to include it in their marketing and advertising plans. As more and more adopt this technology, it is important to stay ahead of the curve. Don’t be left behind in your competitor’s dust.
Reaching more potential customers:

Most large companies have a mobile website rather than a mobile application because they know the value in reaching as many segments of their market as possible. A well designed mobile website will attract far more interest and business than a mobile application, and be much easier to to implement. Separate mobile applications have to be developed for every different operating system, making it several times as costly and complicated to implement a system that will work for every mobile user.

Looking at more statistics of smartphone use, it is clear that smartphone users are using their phones as a mobile computer rather than a phone. At least two thirds of smartphone users use their phones to access the internet on a daily basis, and 25% of users report using their smartphone as the primary mode of accessing the internet. When choosing where to spend your marketing dollars, it makes sense to expand your business’s web presence to the mobile web.

Lets see how can we plan a surprise party:
Plan in advance! If you don’t everything could just be very disorganized,and you might even, for example, run out of food. Make sure it stays a secret… otherwise it could turn out boring.
It’s better if it’s a few days before/after the birthday- otherwise the birthday person might guess.
It’s helpful if everyone brings something, and that there are quite a few people organizing the surprise party.
Get people to help you with decorating… have balloons, tinsel, a banner, posters, party poppers, and invitations…
everything to make it look pretty
Just make sure your guest of honor has a good sense of humor and will appreciate being caught off guard.
If you’re planning a surprise party, be sure to make all of the guests aware that it’s a surprise and give them clear instructions on when, where, and how to show up.
When planning a party, any party, you’ve just got to have decorations, right? Many party supply stores offer a huge variety of decorations at a very reasonable price.
And the best advice from How to plan a party is, have fun! Whether for yourself, a client, or a friend,

How to make sure that it is a real surprise:
There are some basic rules you should follow to ensure that your party goes well and without hitches.
Secrecy are the first and second words
Separate and isolate communications
Better to over-involve than under-involve

Cover your tracks
Make sure you have a backup plan

3 Most Exciting Medical Advancements

Top 3 Most Exciting Medical Advancements of the 21st Century

So far, the 21st century has brought a number of tragedies to the world, such as the devastating attack on the World Trade Center in 2001 and the economic crisis of 2008, but the past decade has not been entirely grim. In fact, the medical field has produced an astonishing number of advancements since 2000 that have already improved many lives. The following major medical breakthroughs show that working today in the healthcare industry has never been more exciting.

The Human Genome Project

Scientists involved with the Human Genome Project kicked off the new millennium by announcing the completion of an early map of human DNA. The U.S. government-funded project, which began in 1990, has revolutionized the field of genetic research by providing an indispensable gene database that scientists around the world can use for their own research.

Already, the project has led to a number of fruitful discoveries regarding the structure of human DNA and its origin. For example, geneticists can pinpoint the prehistoric origin of diseases by tracing the migration of minor gene variations between human populations. Not only does this enable people to learn more about their family susceptibility to certain diseases, but it will also allow drug manufacturers to design products tailor-made for an individual’s genetic makeup.

Stem Cell Research

The past decade has also brought many advances in stem cell research, especially when it comes to the method used to harvest them. Initially, viable stem cells could only be harvested from embryos that would be destroyed during the process. This has led to a great deal of ethical debate that has prompted governments to impose numerous restrictions that have slowed research progress.

Today, however, research organizations have discovered more ethically sound ways to harvest viable stem cells. One recent example involves scientists from the University of Central Florida, who have been able to transform umbilical cord stem cells into oligodendrocytes, the brain cells responsible for producing the insulating material needed for nerve cells to conduct electrical impulses. These findings represent a huge step in developing a cure for spinal cord injuries and debilitating nervous diseases such as multiple sclerosis.

Nanotechnology

Nanotechnology is no longer the stuff of science fiction, as it is now being used by the medical field to create more sophisticated delivery systems for drugs, vaccines and other substances. Unlike more traditional delivery systems, these molecule-sized nanoparticles target specific cells, which enable them to provide an effective dose in much smaller quantities.

One of the most promising examples of nanotechnology, for instance, is currently under development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Using mice infected with malaria, scientists and engineers have designed a fatty molecule to provoke an immunological response similar to the harmless viruses used in traditional vaccines. Not only could these virus-free vaccines lead to safer immunizations, but they could also provide an answer to diseases (such as HIV) where the virus cannot be rendered harmless.

These examples are only a few of the many major inroads that the medical field has made over the past decade when it comes to treating diseases and other debilitating conditions. Every branch of the healthcare industry, from medical assistant training schools to research and development organizations, should expect to see significant changes resulting from these discoveries over the course of this century. By starting a career in healthcare today, you can be a part of this exciting future.

Customer lifetime value in social media

Customer lifetime value in social media : Is the calculation viable or not?

social customer

With specialization coming into everything that we can see, hear, feel or touch, the world looks set for specialists. And when we move into the spheres of marketing, we come across a term that is increasingly being used today – Customer Lifetime Value or CLV. Customer Lifetime Value can be broadly defined as the difference between the total revenue from the customer and the total costs on the customer. If it can be determined, it will prove to be the most important metric for any business.

The metric shows that not every customer is equal – some are in fact more equal than the other! Thus, apart from gaining more customers, the marketers emphasize on getting more valuable customers. They state that quality, will ultimate score over quantity. There is definitely some truth in this line of thought. But that truth starts losing its veracity when pulled too far. What do we mean by that?

Social media strategists are the ones who back CLV figures in a resounding fashion. They attempt to make gainful use of social media like Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the likes to increase customers and also valuable customers for a business. The cost of such social media campaigns are not very high compared to, say, direct marketing via mail, telephone or company-representative visits. Thus, when the marketers and strategists present the customer lifetime values to add importance to the social media marketing campaign, you should keep your eyes and ears open.

Here are some hard truths about the calculation of the CLV. When it is being done for an individual, it works out fine but which company has the time to invest in each and every individual? That is where the average CLV in a business needs to be determined. And getting this value is simple mathematically, but very difficult realistically!

The average CLV calculation requires large sets of data on the customers. If the data set size is small, the results and conclusions cannot be called statistically sufficient. Again, there are highs and lows in businesses based on the time of the year. Christmas may see a surge in sales but the autumn may not! The calculation, therefore, needs to be done over an extended period of time. Again, one would have to consider many different key-performance indicators before drawing conclusions. And doing all this would require some serious brains!

Therefore, while the CLV is an awesome metric to obtain, it is definitely not meant for start-ups and beginners. This metric should be the crowning glory of all the statistics and definitely not the starting point! If one happens to be a start up, there are other simpler ways to evaluate the impact of social media campaigns. It becomes evident that CLV calculations are not viable for all.

The simplest way to evaluate impact, rather than use the CLV, would be to maintain a thorough log of all the social activities on a social calendar. Then, keep a track of all the possible social metrics like the number of likes, the new followers etc., as they evolve with time. Finally, as in Google Analytics, obtain all the metrics for the website over time. Overlap all these three – social activities, social metrics and website metrics – in a graph and you can draw some pretty decent conclusions.

HTC Sensation XE

“In regards to the post, I like it but you’re both right in that it doesn’t exactly tie in with a lot of our articles and doesn’t quite relate to our community, despite being a helpful post in general. If you could get Alia to add in or talk about the correlation with twitter as a designer might use it (or I could extend/alleviate some writing) I think that would add a lot of value to the post that would otherwise not relate a ton to our community of mostly designers and freelancers.”

Android Powered Bell Ringers

Android Powered Bell Ringers

There are many staples that come along with the holiday season. From yule logs to stockings, and even ugly sweaters, there are many recognizable icons that make Christmas what it is. This year however, one staple is going tech. The Salvation Army is dispatching their bell ringers with Android phones equipped with mobile credit card readers.

In the past years The Salvation Army has seen the times change. With most shoppers carrying credit cards instead of cash, there has been a decline in funds collected during the holidays. To help increase donations, The Salvation Army has decided to turn to tech and the growing popularity of mobile payment systems. They are testing the use of Square, a mobile payment company, to allow shoppers to swipe their credit cards and give a donation.

The Android phones have been donated by Nextel and will have the small postage stamp-sized card readers from Square. There will be two apps involved, one for Square and one for The Salvation Army. After the bell ringer gets the attention of the shoppers, the only thing they need to do is swipe their card and sign. The donation will automatically deposit into The Salvation Army’s bank account. The Salvation Army is confident the new method will increase the amount of donation due to the tech appeal and convenience. It will also reduce the amount of theft involved with collecting cash in small amounts.

This is not the first time The Salvation Army attempted to collect donations via credit cards. A few years ago the organization launched donation kiosks which allowed people to use credit cards. However, with cold weather conditions and the amount of time it took to process payments, it was not a big success.

Though The Salvation Army will be the largest non-profit organization to integrate this technology, it won’t be the first. Advertising Age reported on a Girl Scout troop in California that used a mobile payment system to sell around 400 boxes of cookies at Facebook’s headquarters earlier this year.

The Salvation Army plans to have the Android powered bell ringers at 10 locations each in Dallas, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. This year will still be a testing phase to see how the public reacts to the new donation method and whether it will increase donations. If all goes well, the sound of coins dropping in the bucket may be a faded memory in the oncoming years.

Square launched in 2010 and hit the ground running. Their small credit card reader has interested many investors, allowing Square to raise $100M in financing to get their company started. With the growing popularity in smartphones as a business solution, it was only a matter of time before they included point of sales. Now your phone can do it all.

Author : Scott Parker writes for an Australian comparison website, which gives side-by-side rates for all the popular credit cards as well as listing savings accounts with high interest offered by online banks.

4 Commonly Held Misconceptions About Temporary Staffing

Many people have heard of staffing firms that match up job seekers with companies that are looking to hire. However, although most of us have a basic idea about what these organizations do, we tend to be extremely vague – or dead wrong – regarding the details of what they have to offer.

Here are four commonly held misconceptions about temp agencies, set straight for the record.

1) “Only Deadbeats Work With Staffing Agencies.”

Sometimes it seems that staffers garner a poor reputation because we might consider them a “last resort” after something seemingly negative happens, such as being laid off or having to change paths mid-career.

However, while people do sometimes turn to the assistance of a provisional position during a time of transition, it is totally untrue that this option is for those with a poor work ethic or those who are down on their luck.

In fact, lots of different kinds of educated and hardworking folks have teamed up with these companies to get through a rough financial spot or to simply gain experience in a new field – to great effect!

2) “I’ll Never Land a Permanent Position This Way, So There’s No Point.”

One reason why many people shy away from this valuable resource is because they think they can’t really obtain a permanent appointment in this manner. However, this is perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions of them all!

Many jobs that you find with agencies like these are actually temp-to-hire, which means that you are brought on with the intention that HR will make your position permanent if you do a good job. This is actually good in some ways, because it gives both you and the employer time to feel out whether or not you are a good fit for the duties at hand.

Even if you go into a post knowing that it will definitely not be long term, you can still gain tons of experience and make lots of contacts who may lead you to something even better for you.

3) “All the Jobs Available Are For Factory or Office Work.”

This is a very common myth, and it is also untrue. There are lots of different kinds of positions available through these enterprises. For instance, you can check out IT staffing companies that specialize in computer-oriented careers and other tech-based work if you’re interested in jobs in IT. Some companies don’t have a specialization, but do have contacts over an extremely broad spectrum of fields. Engineering, science, oil/gas, education, accounting and medicine are all examples of sectors that have frequently been represented in temp agency job pools.

4) “If I Don’t Want to Stay in My Current Location, These Services Aren’t Useful.”

Bigger IT staffing agencies can have branches all over your region or throughout the whole country, so you may be able to move on to greener pastures and get the employment assistance you need to hit the ground running in a new hometown.

Best of all, if you love your field, chances are you can find a related position through staffing representatives if you are willing to relocate.

While Nora was skeptical of staffing agencies at first, she signed on with one when her job search seemed particularly hopeless. She had an extremely positive experience with her placement service, and was able to secure a permanent job through the connections she made. She knows others can benefit from these sorts of arrangements, too, especially if they’re in a field like IT.

How Great Innovations Aid Modern Charity Work

You’d be forgiven for thinking that charity work is just about fundraising and getting your hands dirty, supporting people and causes at grass roots level. However, this isn’t the sole purpose of charity work. Ultimately, every charity wants to find a permanent solution to to prevent the problems they are trying to address.

Charities also need innovative people to help research and develop solutions to the problems they are tackling. Many charities will invest some of their funding into research, and in itself, this can be a challenging and hugely rewarding job. Research offers a great career opportunity for an individual who has the skills for the role, coupled with the belief that they can help change the world with their ideas.

How Innovation Helps Charities

The Finding Rover smartphone app is a great example of a great innovation. Finding Rover is an iPhone app which makes use of facial recognition technology to identify and reunite lost dogs with their owners. It is currently only available in the US, but this kind of technologys is readily available and being used all over the world.

Here’s how the Finding Rover app works. Users are encouraged to register their dog in the database and upload a photo to a cloud server. At the same time, users are encouraged to take photos of any dogs they see which look lost and upload their pictures to the app.

Lost your dog? Upload a picture and mark the dog as missing in the app. The software scans the database for faces that match in the area. If a match is found, then the dog can be re-united with its owner.
The Finding Rober app is free to anyone who wants to use it, and it’s more than just a lost and found service. Users can also post tips and tricks as well as share cute photos with other members. That gives Finding Rover a fun, social edge that ensures it won’t be deleted from any phones in the meantime.

Responding to Social Demand

The app relies on developing a strong community of responsible dog owners – hence the social aspect. The more people involved, the better, since the database has to be built by virtual volunteers. Apps like this have the potential to be a powerful tool to help any dog rescue and rehoming charity to reunite lost pets with their owners, providing the charity has the support to build a database. Not only will more dogs be reunited, but the automatic matching algorithm means charity workers are freed up to work on other things.

Facial recognition technology is a new and cutting edge technique which is constantly being developed by IT organisations around the world. This app is a great example of how this type of technology can be used in a unique way to provide a new service to people in distress. Whilst the developers of facial recognition technology may not have imagined that it could be used to rescue dogs, it shows how innovative people can think outside the box and develop a useful new tool.

New Year’s Resolutions for SEO

New Year’s Resolutions for SEO

Changes seo

Every year millions of people make New Year’s resolutions. These small promises of change are seldom carried out. However, in SEO, the changes promised are often implemented and those in the biz are made aware of them. 2012 seems to be full of SEO promises that will change the way websites are marketed and ranked. Here is a list of SEO changes we should prepare to see.

Integrating Social Media:

The biggest change in SEO we can expect to see in 2012 is the integration of social media in page ranking. This is what Google Plus was truly about. Links posted with social media that hold longevity will be ranked higher than those posted on a page for link building. Also, the use of social media on a site, for instance, Facebook fans and friends, will increase page rank. Google and other major search engines are going to be turning to human interaction on websites as a metric now that tracking it is now easier.

Quality over Quantity:

In the past, the quantity of posts and links has helped increase page rank and SEO standings. This spawned the link farm sites which led to changes in SEO and how pages are ranked. In 2012 we will see more value toward quality rather than quantity. The quality of content and links will increase the ranking rather than the amount. This is a welcomed change for those who are looking for valuable information rather than a quick post that is placed simply for SEO. This will also allow blogs and websites to concentrate on creating a valuable resource for their readers. Those sites and blogs that have always been proud of the quality of their pages may benefit from those values shortly.

SEO’s will need new tricks:

In the past few years, SEO professionals have used their knowledge and remained successful. However, in 2012 we will see many of these professionals becoming SMOs. Social media optimizing will become a necessity for all SEO professionals. With more social interaction between readers and the site, this is going to play a key role in all page ranking systems. So current SEO professionals will be hitting the books to learn a new skill set to keep themselves marketable to their clients.

Smaller Blogs will be Bigger Business:

In the past couple of years we have seen an increase of smaller individually owned blogs that have become successful. This has led to the change in 2012 where these smaller blogs will erupt in numbers and more people will begin sharing their personal lives online.

Multi-Media Blogging:

In the next year we will see an increase in the use of multi-media in blogs. Audio and video blogging will become more popular as the technology utilized for this has become simpler to use. Even smaller blogs will be turning to audio and video blogging rather than simply posting articles. This will also spark new metric changes to include the use of multi-media in SEO and page ranking.

Time to Monetize your Blog

Deciding if it’s Time to Monetize your Blog

In 2009 there were an estimated 126 million blogs on the internet. That number probably changed as they were posting their findings as new blogs are popping up all the time. The reason for the popularity of blogs is the following they receive. For every blog out there, there are readers that follow them. If you own a blog, you already understand this fact.

As a blog owner you have dedicated time and effort to provide an entertaining, informative, and unique blog for your readers. So monetizing your blog is a logical choice to get back a little of what you put into it. When deciding to monetize your blog, there are many factors to take into consideration. Here are a few things to consider:

Is it time?

There is a difference of opinion when it comes to determining when to monetize. Some say you should wait for a good following of 1000 or more readers. That is suggested so you don’t get discouraged by monetizing early and not seeing much profit. Even though that is a valid reason, there are others who believe monetizing early is more beneficial. They believe your readers should gradually be introduced to advertisements where there were none before. Having new followers already use to ads is also suggested.

Based on your niche, the type of followers you have, and which advertisements you are planning to use will help to determine if you should monetize early or later. If you run a blog for those who can’t cope with change, you may not want to post the ads too late in the game. Only you can determine if sooner or later is right for you and your readers.

How to monetize:

There are many ways to monetize your blog. When you decide it’s time you want to be sure to choose methods that closely relate to your niche. Try to avoid products and services that go against your beliefs and the opinions expressed on your site. Here are a few of the more popular ways to monetize your site:

Products: This is one of the most popular ways to monetize a blog. By promoting products that directly coincide with a topic, post, or opinion expressed on your blog you can generate sales easily. Posting products that directly relate to an article or post will get the readers thinking about the product and convert them to a sale.

Services: This is similar to advertising products. While the readers are interested in knowing more about the service or even trying the service for themselves, you can generate income by referring your followers to that particular service. If you recently blogged about how good a massage session felt and include a link to a massage service, you may just inspire a sale just by expressing your opinion about it.

Affiliate marketing: This is similar to suggesting products, with the exception that you are an affiliate for the company. You can generate a healthy income by selling products for different companies as an affiliate. If you run a tech blog you can add affiliate marketing for cell phones or tech toys. The commission is based on the amount of sales your affiliate number generates.

Whether you are new to the blog world or an old pro, you can generate a healthy income from monetizing your passion for blogging. Choose the right time for you and your readers and the type of marketing you would feel comfortable with. Try to avoid anything that may annoy your readers such as pop ups or surveys and you may find yourself with a great new source of income.

Websites for Freelance Tasks

Top 10 Websites for Freelance Tasks, Be Your Own Masters:
You have probably observed about many new freelance websites that give you various offers to generate income on writing and submitting articles. Keep in mind that not all of them are efficient and well organized. Some are good but competitors there is so high, that the prices are low and not enough for the task you are doing and the spent initiatives.
With so many freelance workers employed in the US and around the world, a freelance market has developed. Companies are the requirement, freelance workers the supply. Several homes based work sites have increased to plug the sellers and buyers in this home based market offering a structured platform that eliminates many of the problems of outsourcing and freelancing. If you are going for making the conversion to outsourcing in 2016, you will need to know some of the greatest players in the market. Here are some new freelance websites provide home based work.
Toptal
This is one of the most well-known and widely-used sites out there right now. Toptal joins clients with a system of freelance designers and developers from more than 90 countries around the world. The service only works on technological tasks, but Toptal does those well. The organization carefully displays its freelance workers for English-speaking, character, technological knowledge and expertise. Eventually, only 3 percent of candidates are approved into Toptal’s network.
2. Upwork (Formerly oDesk)
Upwork previously called oDesk, is the massive of the freelance market and is the greatest network system by a long expand. Established out of the merging of two main freelance homes, Elance and oDesk, this platform has now nine million freelancers in freelance network system and almost 1.5 million clients. Upwork offers fixed price and per hour tasks, but they offer no testing or vetting for clients. Instead, they keep the procedure and technical evaluation to the clients, who can then bid on the freelance workers they want to seek the services.
PeoplePerHou
PeoplePerHour is a freelance site for all skills related to web tasks, such as web-developers, designers, and SEO professionals and promoters. Trying to be a one-stop shop, This platform wants to make web-building experience as structured possibly through its network system. To make simpler the procedure even more, PeoplePerHour offers something called WorkStream, in which payment, managements and interaction between employers and freelance workers is all managed in one point.
Behance
It is not normally regarded as a choosing or hiring system, as it is also a display system for designers, but it is quite an efficient website for choosing those designers. Not only can clients look through designers’ domain portfolios and see illustrations of their work, but clients can see how other people have responded to that perform as well. Clients pay a fee to write tasks on the website, but in exchange, they get customized choosing ideas for their venture as well as accessibility of Behance’s system of 5 million creative. This very efficient system is not making the freelance industry any time soon.

I am suspicious we will be seeing more home based new freelance websites as well as outsourcing and freelancing, not only the coming year, but also in the years to come. Keep an eye on these websites as they vie for management of the freelance market, and use them to meet your freelance choosing needs.

Touch Typing Accuracy May Be More Important Than Speed

While speed may seem of the utmost importance when you think about typing skills, in many cases accuracy is even more important. Typing 150 words per minute is an impressive accomplishment, but if every other word is misspelled or filled with typos, no one is going to pay for this work.

How to improve typing accuracy

Though this will probably be repeated a thousand times in every article you read about typing accuracy, the single most important thing to remember is simply to practice. There are some things to remember about practicing, however.

  • Learn the basics. Accuracy training isn’t going to do any good if you don’t know where the home keys are or where to place your hands.
  • Find a program that engages you. You’re not going to be inclined to practice if the program is boring. If it’s easier for you to practice while playing, look for games like TyperShark (www.popcap.com, $9.95), TypeRacer (play.typeracer.com) or even the old style Multi-user dungeons, or MUDS, which were text based games that require quick, accurate typing.
  • Do accuracy drills. Some websites like Ratatype offers test and certification, lessons for touch typing, such as TypingWeb (www.typingweb.com) offer accuracy drills. These are repetitive drills designed to focus on accuracy alone. While this isn’t going to help you as much if you’re new to the world of touch typing, it is an important tool to consider.
  • Practice in short bursts. One, twelve hour marathon session of practice is not going to do much for your accuracy. In fact, it’s likely to impede your learning. Typing accuracy is contingent on muscle memory. You wouldn’t expect to bulk up with weightlifting in one, twelve hour session and you shouldn’t expect to be an expert typist in that time either. Spend 30-45 minutes practicing your typing accuracy, then walk away from the computer for a while.
  • Walk away if you start to get frustrated or angry. It can be irritating to spend all that time practicing, only to see your accuracy rating stay the same, or even drop a few points. The more frustrated you get, the lower your score will be, because instead of concentrating on your typing, you’re concentrating on how mad you are.

These may seem like they’re common sense, but many people forget them in their rush to be the perfect tough typist.

There are other things to consider as well, while you’re working on your typing accuracy.

  • Make sure your keyboard is in good shape. A keyboard with non-functional keys is going to affect your accuracy rating, no matter how well or quickly you type. If it’s just a sticky key, try popping the offending key off and cleaning in and around it with a cotton swab soaked in isopropyl alcohol.
  • Pay attention to your posture. Though it may sound silly, improper posture can negatively affect your typing scores. Sit straight up, with both feet on the floor and your keyboard directly in front of you. Also, make sure your monitor is properly placed so you don’t have to worry about neck pain while you write.
  • Use emoticons. 🙂 While they are not proper for use in formal correspondence, they do use symbols and are helpful for teaching your fingers where to go when you need a semicolon or an asterisk.
  • Don’t look at your keyboard. This is one of the keys to gaining any skill in touch typing is being able to know where all the keys are by memory. Once you have the basics down, put something over your hands so you can’t see the keyboard and just type.
  • Turn on the news. Or any other TV show for that matter. Try to increase your speed and accuracy by typing along with what you hear. This is also a good skill to learn if you’re planning to look for jobs in transcription.
  • Don’t get discouraged. It may seem like you’re putting in all this hard work for no result. You may get discouraged, or disappointed that your skills aren’t advancing as quickly as you would like them to. Don’t. All that will accomplish is preventing you from working harder.
  • Reward yourself. While this may seem like a carrot on a stick in a sense, it is great motivation. Improve your typing speed by 5wmp? Go have a glass of wine or a beer, or play your favorite game. Reward yourself for your hard work.

While all of these may be helpful tips, the single most important thing to remember is to practice. Practice a little every day and in no time, you’ll see a marked improvement in both your typing speed and you’re accuracy. Practice is the key to skills that will be useful for your entire life.

Implementing a suitable marketing plan to divert more traffic towards your website and blog can be a difficult task if you are not aware of the tricks. There are many ways to do this; however, you will need to be patient and dedicated.

Most importantly, whatever you decide to blog about should be your passion and that must be evident from the quality of content. This will keep the users interested, which will result in increased content, as users will engage easily.

Here are some ways you can adopt to increase content on your web.

1. Update Your Previous Posts: A great and easy way to increase your web content is to revisit the older posts and make necessary additions where required. This will not only increase the amount of content within the post but will also garner new comments and posts from the readers.

2. Facilitate Guest Posts: You can ask your guests for blog posts to increase new content on your website. If you facilitate guest writers to post, they might be able to come up with unique and new content for your business. Sometimes, writing every post on your own can become tiresome and less interesting. In order to keep the posts interesting enough to retain the customer’s attention, unique writing will be able to divert more readers.

4. Ask The Readers To Submit Questions: You can also ask your readers and subscribers to ask questions. These questions will directly target the information about your business or other related content. This will not only answer the reader who asked for it, but will act as a source of information for the general reader. You may get some interesting answers from other users as well. A collection of new questions and answers can become a viable source of increased content on your website.

5. Hire Writers: If you are no longer available to write for the website or blog, you can hire a writer on your behalf. This should be done when you are busy with other marketing activities and cannot participate regularly. Hiring a writer also gives you an opportunity to maintain focus on other forms of marketing. You must make sure that the writer is an expert and knows the details of your business.

Comedy that Entertains your Readers

Writing Comedy that Entertains your Readers – and the Search Engines

Face it, a lot of people use the internet because they are bored.  There is plenty of scope for getting traffic out of providing funny content people can read or look at instead of working, and this can be a great way to build up a following for yourself as a writer, or for your blog (where you can then slyly sell them stuff, if you’re kind of cynical like I am).  Whether the purpose of your site is comedy, or you just want to write some funny articles to liven up your affiliate site and make it more appealing, it is important to keep SEO in mind and find a balance between appealing to the search engines without ruining your jokes.

Topical Humour

An easy way to do this is to write some topical humour.  Whether this is the whole theme of your article, or just a joke slipped in to a piece on whatever subject you usually blog about, look for things happening in the news, entertainment, sport and of course, the world of celebrity for inspiration.  You can then use a keyword that is temporarily trending, like the name of whichever celebrity just went out with no underwear on or got a DUI, to drive traffic to your site (which may be more about selling fitness equipment than celebrity gossip, but everybody knows that a lot of people who like celebrity gossip are fat, so you’re still hitting a ripe audience).

Sliding some jokes about current topics of interest, especially if they are a bit controversial, not only entertains your readers and lets you pick up passing traffic from searches that wouldn’t normally relate to what you do, but also tells the reader that your content is up to date.

Tags

If you can’t easily fit keywords into what you are producing, either because it ruins the flow of your comedy, or because you are using image based or video comedy like cartoon strips, memes, or YouTube videos, then you can use tags to help search engines identify what your content relates to.  Treat tags as you would any other SEO, and make sure they really are relevant and describe the kind of content you have.

Social Media

More than any other kind of content, comedy is really easy to promote through social media.  People share and re-post the things that make them laugh more than anything else, so if you have some funny content, using Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Google+ to get it in front of everyone you know can hopefully start a cycle where it will get forwarded on, shared, linked to, and found in Twitter searches as well as Google ones.  This not only brings you in more traffic from people who see the posts, but also helps your search engine rankings as it creates backlinks, and shows Google that your page is being talked about as well as looked at.

Outsourcing

If you’re not someone who is good at coming up with humorous content, you can still get yourself in front of the  almost endless audience of procrastinators out there by hiring someone who is to write for you.  Think of the blogs you find funny – in some cases you can hire those writers to work for you, but alternatively, you at least have a model for what you are trying to achieve to help you explain what you want to any potential freelancers you are talking to.

Comedy is one of the hardest forms of content to write so if you are having trouble you might want to look for a company that offers copywriting services.  Apple Copywriting is a great company to turn to in your hour of need.

Why Every Home Should Have a Cloud Back-up Solution

Why Every Home Should Have a Cloud Back-up Solution

Home computer users are switching their files to cloud storage mistakenly believing their home pictures and other important documents will be there when they need them. Unfortunately, depending on the type of back-up system you choose, this may not always be the case. Just like you would want you home computer files backed up in the event of a computer crash, if the cloud on which your data is stored should happen to go down, you still lose.

Understand your information on a cloud server is much the same as on-line data storage. You should be able to access anything on the cloud from any computer. Some of the other advantages to using cloud storage include:

  • Offsite storage of all of your important information
  • When your computer is not in use, it will start backing up your files
  • Your files are encrypted to prevent hacking
  • Low prices make it a good alternative

However, all of this is mute if the cloud server fails and your data is lost. Backing up to another cloud may not be for everyone, especially for those who have little data that needs protecting or those whose files can easily be replicated. For those that save a lot of important information that they may need to access quickly, or remotely it is a viable solution.

Consider your family pictures are based on a cloud and you want to share them with other family members. You can jump on any computer, access your cloud storage site and share them without having to drag your own system around with you. When the primary server is down, if you have a cloud back-up system, you can still recover all of your files. Many believe that having a local back-up is sufficient and for many it may be. However consider the disadvantages to local back-up solutions.

Options for local back-up include saving the data to a disk or on tape and, depending on the size of the files, may require more than one disk or tape. The equipment used for adding a local back-up solution can be expensive and it’s possible you will forget to back up your files, and once is all it will take if the system goes down. Everything you forgot to save will be lost.

Some cloud back-up programs allow you to save the files in increments. What this means is that only new information entered into a file is saved and the system does not require the entire file to be saved. When you save to a local back-up, you will likely need to save the entire program and not just the part that has changed. This can take up a lot of unnecessary time and effort on your part.

You can also back up your files to a data center that can provide flexibility and extra security for your information. In the event your home computer crashes, in addition to the cloud on which you store your data, a new computer can be used to access all of your old files to restore everything you may have lost.

Responsive Website design

Responsive Website design

Web projects need to work across multiple devices, screen sizes, and browsing contexts. Responsive design is a web design approach aimed at making websites to provide the good experience for all kind of browsers and devices.A typical website design with responsive capabilities is designed using CSS3 media queries,which allow specific CSS styles to be applied at different browser widths. Many designers wants to build a responsive website, or make your existing site responsive, by using CSS to create a fluid grid,make your images flexible, and add media queries that allow the site to respond to the device it’s being viewed on. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS is recommended.
Clean, well-structured HTML helps create content that is meaningful and easier to manipulate based on context.
Responsive design has a number of advantages for small businesses:
-Content can be created once and delivered to multiple devices
-User experience is the same no matter which device accesses the site’s content
-Marketing opportunities can be enhanced with complementary services all delivered instantly across all customer touch points

 

To create a responsive website, we should know the below 3 main parts

1. Fluid Grid – It’s a flexible width path. We should stop using pixel-based sizes, instead we use the em or percentage in the stylesheet.
Here the column widths are proportional rather than fixed. For example: width: 1000px; will be width: 90%;

851565_546469912062389_1863186550_n

2. Flexible Images – Images on the website form an integral part of every website.The usage of fluid images causes the adjustment of the size to the parent block. The images will scale out according to the screen resolution/size.
The most common relative solution is to set the max-width of the image at 100%.

3. Media Queries(@media) -Media queries are used to write css for specific situations, which allows you to apply styles based on the information about device resolution. It can be set to detect such features as width, height, screen orientation, aspect-ratio and resolution. And also used to change the layout sizes and rules based on various devices. We have to specify some break points in the CSS.

By using CSS3 Media queries, we can make websites responsive.A typical media query looks like this:
@media (max-width: 500px) {
.container {
width: 100%;
margin: 0 auto;
}
}

By using the @media rule, a website can have a different layout for screen, print, mobile phone, or tablet.

 

Example responsive website : Check out http://www.block-c.com/ , a place to find coupon,deals and promocodes.

Some notes:
Old browsers like Internet Explorer 6 don’t support media queries.
Websites who don’t utilize responsive tactics will likely miss out on more traffic and exposure to their website.

Perfecting Your Medical Resume

Creating an Exceptional Medical Resume
Job seekers should consider their resume to be their calling card when they are searching for a job. Since CNN Money notes that it takes recruiters less than five minutes to decide if a resume makes the cut, your medical resume should immediately grab the attention of the person glancing at it. This is particularly important as the medical field continues to experience growth to the tune of 38 percent in 2015.
Resumes should always be tailored to the industry as well as the particular job that is being sought. While it can be tempting for a busy job seeker to bang out a boilerplate resume and simply change a few details for each job opening, this is not the route that is recommended by experts in the field. This is especially true for the medical industry because so many of the available jobs are specialized.
Creating the perfect resume for a medical career is typically a multi-step process. Depending in the position desired, an open position might call for curriculum vitae, also called a CV, instead of a resume. A CV is typically appropriate for medical staff while a resume is ideal for support personnel. Crafting both involves focusing on the relevant keywords that are noted in the job description. This helps a CV or resume to meet the parameters set by tools that use keyword matching. While describing your medically related experience is crucial to obtaining a job, do not forget to include other relevant work that is not directly related to health care, for instance, customer service.
After fleshing out the resume with a personal statement highlighting your unique talents, and all relevant classes, seminars and job experience, hopefully it will be time to prepare for the interview. Be sure to dress professionally and be clean, neat and on time. Follow up with the interviewers by sending a thank you note immediately afterward. Carrington College knows that crafting a professional medical resume is essential to landing the job, which is why they put together the following infographic, “Career Guide: Perfecting Your Medical Resume.”

Top Tips To Learn A New Language

In the movie The 13th Warrior, Antonio Banderas’ character learns to speak a new language just by listening to the merry Norsemen share stories over the campfire at night. Within weeks, without any practice whatsoever he nails the syntax and pronunciation and demonstrates a very impressive vocabulary. You’ve got to love Hollywood.

No, learning a new language is more like Colin Firth in Love Actually. It requires a lot of practice and even then you’ll make countless mistakes that will make you sound like a horse’s bee-hind, but it will get better.

One of the things that make learning a new language so difficult for adults (kids occupy another dimension linguistically-speaking), is the way in which it is traditionally taught. It’s dry as dust, to be honest. Whether you choose to attend a class or take a course online, you’ll endlessly repeat vocabulary lists and phrases that are not generally relevant to everyday conversation, and do written exercises about finding a café near the Eiffel Tower (or whatever touristy landmark pertains to your language of choice).

It doesn’t have to be that way, however. There are several ways in which you can make learning a new language fun.

Here are three tips:

1) Make it real

Take your lessons out of the classroom and hit the streets – or the digital equivalent. Mark Mason has written an excellent article providing tips on how to learn a new language. It’s excellent because he’s done it, several times. He’s tried all sorts of methods and he knows what really works. According to Mason, the single most important thing you can do is converse in the new language. Ideally, you should talk to native speakers, but if that’s not an option, then find someone whose is at least more proficient that you are.

You can, of course, meet up with the people in your class and go out for dinner or coffee and all yammer away in your pidgin Russian or German or Mandarin, and you’ll probably have fun. But, you won’t be able to pick up on and correct all of each other’s mistakes. You could learn new mistakes and they’ll probably prove difficult to unlearn because the fun you’re having will make the memories more resilient (studies have shown this).

You could always invite some people from the move advanced class to join you (and your teacher, if you don’t mind the outing feeling like a school event), but native speakers are really first prize. Given that the world is full of expats, chances are fairly good that you’ve got a community of native speakers in your town or city. All just have to find them. Whatever you do, don’t crash the community! Approach them respectfully. Ask them if you can participate in some local events – but be genuine in your interest.

Alternatively, you could find an online community of native speakers. Join online forums or chat groups where members speak only Spanish, or Italian, or Urdu. Again, be respectful in your approach.

However you do it, online or face-to-face, engage in as many real conversations as possible. Be prepared to make mistakes and to be laughed at. Take heart in the fact that most people are only too happy to help those who are making an effort to learn their language (and their culture), and they’ll do it mostly tactfully.

Mason says that one hour of proper conversation is as good as five hours in a classroom and 10 hours wrestling with the content of an online course on your own. So stop dithering and get out there.

2) Make it silly

We’ve briefly mentioned that having fun while learning makes the memories stick, so you need to find ways to learn that will put a grin on your face. The Language Learning Blog suggests writing a silly children’s book. Complete the entire process in the new language. Make a conscious effort to think of the story in the new language rather than your mother tongue. Plan it in the language; write character sketches, research, do everything in the new language. If an entire story is too intimidating try a comic poem, or write the script for an episode of your favourite TV show, or a soap opera.

Use funny images and mnemonics while you are doing exercises. The visual cues will help your memory, especially if they tickle your funny bone.

3) Immerse yourself

Mason says that the more intensely you study a new language the more quickly you learn it. Watch TV programmes in the language, listen to the radio, read comics, watch funny videos on YouTube. Surround yourself with the language and practice it daily. He recommends you keep at it (in a real and relevant way) until you reach the ‘brain melt’ stage. Then do it again the next day, and the next, and the next …

It’s not easy for stuck-in-a-rut adult brains to learn a new language, but you can make it easier by making it fun.

Featured images:

Jemima Winslow has tried to make her adult brain learn French, Russian, and isiSotho. She’s not been terribly successful, but that’s probably because the lessons were dead boring. She’ll try having some fun with her next language and see if that works better.

Pricing is always about value. If value outweighs price, people don’t mind paying. So

developer’s job is to deliver more value than what freelance web designer expects. Give

progress reports during the project, ask for input at various stages in the project, or follow

up afterward to make sure there are no issues. The web developer should make sure clients

Advantages Minimal Web Design

The Advantages of Minimal Web Design

Minimal Web Design

Each website’s design should reflect its purpose. It is all too easy to allow an enthrallment with glitzy add-ons to take attention away from the core message of the web page. With the vast assortment of apps, widgets, and special effects that it is possible to apply to a web site these days, it is easy to forget the benefits obtained from keeping the overall layout and design simple. Some webmasters may think that maintaining a simple design would make their published site appear dated, thus costing them visitors. The truth is, overly graphics-heavy sites appear unprofessional, and contain a great many other drawbacks as well.

Memory Usage:

While it is common for novice webmasters to want to load their new site with all the latest flashy graphics, even with live streaming music and videos, the fact is that the more memory demands you make on the visitors hardware, the slower your site will load. This can cost a webmaster a significant portion of visitors, as most web users will not wait around forever for a website to load.

Having too many apps trying to load at the same time can leave the half-loaded website looking very unprofessional while it opens. By limiting the content of your homepage to text and some simple, static graphics, you can virtually guarantee that it will pop open and your visitor will have access to all your content without waiting endlessly for the component parts to pull themselves together.

Bandwidth:

Lightweight websites also have low bandwidth demands, this can be very important for webmasters who have to pay extra for exceeding a monthly bandwidth limit. While a video may only take up 6 megabytes in total, the fact that those 6 megabytes will be streamed to each visitor means that a webmaster whose hosting package only covers 10 gigabytes per month is likely to run through his bandwidth allowance within a week (assuming the website is heavily trafficked) and end up either paying expensive extra-bandwidth fees or risk of having his website shut off until the beginning of the next monthly period.

Conversely, a static web page with text, a few images, and maybe a band width sipping gif animation or two will take only a few hundred kilobytes of bandwidth to load per visitor, allowing the webmaster to stretch out bandwidth allowances a long way.
Design:
The previous issues focus more on functionality, but what about aesthetics? Since the homepage is usually the most visited, many webmaster squeeze as many links, apps, and graphs onto it as possible, in the hope that something there will catch a visitor’s eye. More often than not, the information overload resulting from this will drive the visitor to a less confusing competing website. By creating a simple homepage that lists only some of the key points, you will not be frightening away a significant proportion of your visitors with a wall of links and titles.

What about subpages? The number of subpages should be determined by the type of site the webmaster is trying to build. Contact, about us, and the balance focusing on the specific products or services you offer is more than enough.

Going through the effort of creating dozens of subpages that will receive visit counts in the single digits is senseless when much of the content could be condensed into shorter and more to the point pages. Simpler sites are much easier to navigate, and tend to attract more repeat visitors for this purpose.

A simple website is also easy to move. Whether you are using a multi-hosting company compatible web design suite, or simply copy-pasting from one online web site creator to another, minimalist web site designs transfer much easier between hosting platforms than over complicated sites do.

So there really are quite a few compelling reasons to keep a website relatively simple. Perhaps most important of all is the fact that simple sites are easier to update and maintain than an app-heavy monstrosity. The latest trend is quickly becoming smaller straight to the point websites designed for functionality, aesthetics, and smaller sizes.

Can Web Design Be Wow

Can Web Design Be “Wow”?

Perhaps the most scary thing for a new businessman to consider is the web site that will house the first impressions of the business to most of the civilized world. The fact is that a web site is necessary for any business that wants to stay in business these days, and just putting a web site out there is suicide for a first impression.

Also, many people do not have the money to hire a professional web designer, especially on a start up budget, and so have to end up doing it themselves.

The good news is that there are more free templates and resources online for web site building than ever before, and sometimes, if you get a good web host, they can also help you with the web design. The problem with this is that if you attach your web design to another business, then you are at the whim of that business – either on the hook for monthly payments or obliged to accept a less than perfect design with watermarks all over it.

The solution for a professional business is to build a singularly unique web site, and this can be done, too.

Perhaps the best book that I have read on the subject, both in terms of tips and in calming the nerves of the new guy is “The Web Design WOW! Book” by Jack Davis. It definitely has its share of professional tips, but it does so in a way resembling the “Books for Dummies” series. And believe it or not, “The Web Design WOW! Book” is actually better than the “Web Design for Dummies” book.

Some of the tips from the “The Web Design WOW! Book” include:

1. Do not worry too much about flashy graphics.

What you want is professionalism. That can be done through simple things, like matching your font colors to your logo correctly, spell checking your web copy before you throw it out there, and making sure that you have simple links on your web site that lead the customer around in an intuitive fashion.

2. Many things are easier than you think.

It is easier than you think to set up a QR code that leads to your web site. It is easier than you think to optimize your web site for search engines. It is easier than you think to start affiliate sites and link them to your own. Just follow the directions!

3. Focus on the simple.

The best web sites are usually made from pieces of others. Anything can be taken from another web site, including background ideas, fonts, etc. Most of these resources are free anyway. Use them! All those expensive looking things are probably on a template site somewhere.

International Students And Work-Study Programs

More and more students are starting to receive their education in another country. There are plenty of perks to being an international student. You get to learn about a new culture, you get to receive memorable life experiences, and you will likely learn a new language. Some international students can then take these experiences back home and apply them to their future, and some international students decide to stay and work in the foreign country after graduation.

Along with all the benefits and perks, there are also some disadvantages to being an international student. You are often taking a journey alone without any friends or family by your side. You are asked to start a life on your own in a new country, and it can be difficult for you to communicate with other people.

Another disadvantage to being an international student is finding the funds for your education. Many of the traditional college funding programs have gone under due to the economy, and those that do exist either want you to have an American cosigner (if applying in the US) or are government funded and wont’ be given to foreign students.

But you can easily find other ways to help pay for college through a work-study program at your school.

What is a work-study program?

A work-study program is designed to help college students work part-time while attending school. These jobs can be off campus or on campus and typically only require about 10-20 hours per week so they don’t interrupt the student’s academics. In most cases, a work-study program will provide the student with minimum wage, but it could be more depending on the job at hand.

How does a work-study program benefit an international student?

Work-study programs are extremely beneficial to international students for a variety of reasons. First, international students are working with student visas. There are laws regarding student visas. International student are not allowed to work off campus during their first year of school, making it hard for them to find work. With a work-study program, international students will be able to find jobs on campus to adhere to their student visa regulations.

Second, work-study programs can help international students earn experience. Many work-study programs try to place students in jobs that are close to their area of study, so an international student will be able to gain first hand experience of their job field. Since many employers are hesitant to hire international students, the work-study program gives international students a change to gain real experience without being discriminated against.

Finally, work-study programs can help international students pay for school. Because many international students cannot find loans, they are forced to pay for school themselves. A work-study program allows them to be able to work to earn money to pay for school. In some cases, the student can give their paycheck back to the school to pay for tuition, books or other expenses. The student can also keep the money and use it to pay for other school necessities on their own.

Don’t Let Your PC Fail You During An E-Course, Use PC Optimization Software

We are a busy people, no matter where you live in the world. One of the best ways to advance your career and save time is to use Online Universities and getting a degree. The only problem is that sometimes your computer is not up to the task and might crash at a critical time. I personally had to call a professor in the middle of the night to ask for an extension on a test because my computer crashed.

Don’t make my mistake: use a pc optimization software program like PC Health Boost to make sure it’s not going to fail you at a critical time.

– What are some of the issues that could happen to disrupt your online education?

  • Computer Failure during a Timed Test – Online courses often require people to take timed tests to make sure that they don’t have enough time to cheat and look up answers. They specifically are designed to keep you moving at a fast pace. If your computer crashed you’d be stuck with begging for an adjustment in time or a retake.
  • Lost Files – A computer crashing at the wrong time can delete your essay or research notes that you’ve been working on. Prepare for tears if this happens.
  • Lost Spirit – Losing work or a test grade makes it harder to continue the important path of finishing your education. You have enough problems don’t let your PC be one.
  • Late Homework – If you can’t use your computer to send in work, it could be late!
  • Failure to Complete Discussion Topics – Online courses often require students to comment in a discussion board… if your PC is offline, no comments, no grade!

– PC optimization software checks your computer for any current issues.

  • It checks your computer for existing problems with dll files (common files shared by your programs).
  • It checks for registry errors (where everything is located on your hard drive).
  • It checks the programs that start up when you run your PC (this could help you find malware or viruses that slow your computer down).

– PC Healthboost fixes issues like these.

Not only does pc optimization software usually scan for issues, it fixes them. Often when people use pc optimization software for the first time, they’ll discover they had many problems that they didn’t know about. These problems with your system might never cause it to crash, but the problem is that they do eventually make your computer run slower. It only takes one crash at the wrong time to ruin your day; using pc optimization software is like insurance for your computer’s operating system.

Everyone deserves a better pay rate, a nicer job and a stronger education; don’t let an old PC puttering along get in your way. Use pc optimization software to make sure you earn the A’s that you should and let other people get an F when their computer gets a blue screen of death during a test!

Guest Author: Erin Walsh loves to blog about anything to do with technology. Thankfully, her “real” job is something that she loves to do, blog about technology!

Accelerate Your Mobile Sales

How to Accelerate Your Mobile Sales?smartphone583685_640

The age of mobile commerce is no longer just a prediction for the future, but it is a reality that sooner or later every online merchant will have to adapt to. However, many online entrepreneurs are not aware of the real potential of mobile commerce or they fail to understand the real benefits of going mobile. If you want to increase your mobile sales, here is a bunch of facts to consider:

Understanding how customers use mobile devices

Mobile shopping is significantly different from the desktop experience, first of all, because of the very nature of mobile devices. Although it is not uncommon to use mobile devices at home or at work, 42% of the time spent on mobile devices takes place on the go and away from both work and home. Many of these searches are conducted on the way to the local point of sale or service: 54% of mobile searches are conducted with local intent, while 78% of these searches lead to offline purchase a couple of hours later. All of it means that one of the strongest advantages of mobile commerce is the ability to research products on our way to the brick-and-mortar store or purchase products while commuting to work or home. How this information should influence your approach to mobile eCommerce?

Mobile sales optimization

If you sell your products in a local brick-and-mortar store, make sure that your customers can be automatically redirected to the nearest point of sale by enabling geolocation data. You should also make sure that your website is adjusted to the typical constraints of mobile platforms, such as small screens of smartphones or mobile browsers, which not always support commonly used formats. Responsive Magento website is a must, but you should also assess the design of your website and get rid of all unnecessary distractions, which can cause problems for mobile users.

SEO Photos & Guest Posts

Photos & Guest Posts

There is no denying that one of the most effective ways to raise your search engine rankings and overall presence on the internet is to offer to guest post for multiple bloggers. However, getting bloggers to allow you to guest post on their site is easier said than done. When explaining my job to my friends, the first thing they said to me is that it must be hard to think of different things to write about all of the time to avoid duplicate content. If you are a creative search or SEO professional, you are probably thinking what I thought: Writing unique guest posts is the easy, fun part. The hard part is getting the blogger to respond to your emails and allow you to post on their site.
Bloggers receive hundreds, if not a thousand, requests from individuals like you and me every week to guest post on their site. You need something to make your guest post stick out as unique and ordinary like a great photo!  A great photo helps a guest post stand out and is a great selling point to the blogger. However, you can’t just search Google and pick any photo and stick it in the guest post; the blogger can do that. Here are three tips that you should follow when thinking of a photo to add to a guest post.

  1. Relevance- The picture needs to be relevant to the topic of the guest post. Bloggers are looking for quality guest posts that add value to their site, so your picture needs to add value to the guest post. Guest posts that contain a photo that has absolutely nothing to do with the guest post are seen as low quality and do not make the cut.
  2. Original content- Original photos that you take to add to your guest post are the best. It signals to the blogger that you cared enough to take the time to go above and beyond to ensure they have a great, original guest post. If you aren’t a great photographer, you can also create an image to go along with the guest post. Doing so will ensure that your guest posts goes up and the blogger will likely accept future guest posts from you.
  3. Humor sells- From the feedback I have received from multiple bloggers and webmasters, humorous guest posts almost always get posted. Whether it be written with a humorous twist or include a hysterical photo, everyone likes a good laugh. The one thing I can’t stress enough is to remember tip number one and make sure that the funny photo is related to the guest post. It’s understandable that it might not always be feasible to take an original photo that is funny and related to the guest post. In situations like these, it is ok to take a picture from the internet that is relevant. For example if you’re writing a guest post for a pet advocates blogger, it’s hard to have your camera ready for the rare occasion that your dog or cat does something funny. In this case, go ahead and grab a picture from the web like this:

Photo credit: http://www.jscwebsites.com/

It’s true that a picture does speak a thousand words. Include a picture in your next guest post keeping the three tips I presented in mind. You’re bound to have your guest posts accepted and reap the SEO benefits!

Ten Blogger Diet Tips

As a blogger, it can be hard to stay in shape. You have access to your refridgerator all day, it’s tempting to order pizza while you’re writing, and boring tasks can make snacking extremely tempting. If you’re a blogger, here are ten tips you can use to keep your diet healthy:

  1. Schedule snack time. Rather than snacking throughout the day, limit yourself to only having snacks at certain times, like you’d do with a kid.
  2. Learn to cook. It’s much healthier than ordering food or eating pre-packaged meals. Even if you think you’re terrible in the kitchen, there are lots of awesome easy cooking blogs out there you can follow to learn!
  3. Keep the junk out of the house in the first place. That way, when you’re tempted to snack throughout the day, your only options will be healthy.
  4. Portion your snacks ahead of time as you’re making lunches in the morning. That way you have a baggie of crackers waiting for you at 3 PM rather than eating two or three portions out of the box.
  5. Join some healthy eating forums or Facebook groups. When you’re tempted during the day, visit them for moral support.
  6. Find a virtual accountability buddy, preferably one who is also a work-at-home blogger and has similar struggles. Report in with one another on a daily basis and hold one another accountable when you cheat.
  7. Blog or tweet about your struggles with weight loss. Lots of people can identify with that, and it’s great to have support from your readers. If dieting doesn’t really fit into your niche, you can still references it on Twitter or write a tie-in post (for example, if you blog about books, review a healthy diet book).
  8. Get the entire family on board with healthy eating. It’s easier to eat healthy when you’re all doing it.
  9. Use social media to find diet tips. If you ask your network, you can find healthy recipes, diet opinions and reviews, exercise tips, and more.
  10. Track your weight loss with pictures. When you upload before/after pictures every month, you’ll get lots of support from your entire community.

If you’re self-employed as a blogger, it’s also important to find a health insurance plan, since you won’t get one through an employer like most people. As you lose weight, update your plan – you might be able to save money on your mothly premium if you lose a signifcant amount, since it puts you at a lower risk for major health problems.

Allison writes for HealthInsuranceQuotes.org, where you can find that perfect plan for your needs.

6 Marketing Mistakes to Avoid

Marketing Mistakes to Avoid

Regardless of your marketing avenue, or the product or service in your shopping cart, there are good and bad ways to market. And most have more to do with the implementation than anything else. Here are six marketing pitfalls to avoid in hopes that your next project is a huge success!

1. Broadcasting
In a time when you can choose to freely tweet and update your consumers (followers and fans), too many people and companies choose to broadcast their message as opposed to engaging their audience. Word-of-mouth marketing is both free and priceless! Post informative and moving pieces that at least earn you “likes” but preferably lots of comments and shares. A connection to your consumers goes two ways and it is stronger and more powerful than the one-way broadcast.

2. Hiding
Transparency is one of the best policies and practices you can adopt in marketing. When you start avoiding the tough questions, dis-allowing certain customer comments or reviews, and other diverting tactics, people start to wonder what you have to hide? If there is something you need to fix, then fix it! Something you need to make right, set it straight! You’ll find that your consumers will be far more forgiving of any short-comings when you are honest and open about them.

3. Being Boring, Predictable or Less than Authentic
Spice it up! Just because something has always been done one certain way, doesn’t mean it isn’t utterly stupid, or at least deserving of a fresh approach. Come at your marketing strategy from different angles, include input from various mindsets. If everyone at the table thinks just alike, then you’ll walk away with one uniform decision, but it may not speak to every person on the market. And while you won’t be all thing to all people, you don’t need to completely box yourself in either. Just make sure you also don’t go to the other extreme and try to seek an entire committee’s approval for every marketing decision.

4. Failure to research
Do your homework, and do it first. Determining how you want to market something is best approached once you know everything you can about what you are marketing, to whom you are marketing and exactly what message you want to send and why. Set clear goals, otherwise how do you know what you’ve achieved? And move beyond just a monetary end goal. For example, raising your customer satisfaction is an excellent goal; now how do you want to get there?

5. Logic over emotion
And when all your research is in a row, don’t forget that your consumer will still make emotional decisions that defy all logic and research. You can promote in a convincing, matter-of-fact approach, that proves rationally that you’re the better choice…. but in the end you have to connect with your consumer. Without a connection, there is no loyalty or engagement – two things that you will find imperative for growth.

6. Following the Leader
This can be following your competitions’ marketing strategies, or even the product or services offered. Being a “me too” is never good. Even being one better is not as effective as being one different, one all original and all your own. If you find yourself standing about halfway back in line behind the leaders, take a step to the side and form your own line.

Savvy Marketer Terry Ford has learned some of these lessons the hard way. One tool she always uses to make her work clean and professional is the web’s best grammar checker. Another tip she shares is for small business owners to be as active as they can be in entrepreneur organizations.

Resume Writing Tips for Freshers

Resume Writing Tips for Freshers

1.One page
Your resume should be one-page long.Long page resumes often make interviewer
stressed so try to keep your resume as short as possible.

2.No pronoun
You resume should not contain the pronouns “I” or “me.” That is how we normally
structure sentences,but since your resume is a document about your person,using
these pronouns is actually redundant.

3.No jargon or slang
Slang should never be used in a resume. As for technical jargon, do not expect
that the employer will know what you are talking about. The person who will read
your resume for the first time might not have any technical expertise.

4.Exclusive e-Mail Ids
Use only one (or maximum 2) e-mail id exclusively for the purpose of recruitments.
Excess of emails just like a showoff so try to use one and best titled e-mails.

5.Start with education
The entry-level candidates should put their education information near the top of
their resumes,unlike the experienced professionals, who list their degrees and
certificates at the end of the resume.

6.Proof read it twice
After you have finalized your resume, check it repeatedly for errors in spelling,
grammar, or punctuation.

Presenting Your Electronic Resume

Presenting Your Electronic Resume

With the plethora of technological advances that we have seen over the past decade, many aspects of businesses’ operations have turned digital. This is important for not only the companies utilizing the internet to conduct business, but also the job hunters who are looking to gain employment with these organizations. Long gone are the days of printing and hand-delivering resumes to future employers – today’s job seekers are taking advantage of electronic resumes to apply for a wider range of positions in less time than ever. Although it may seem easy to create your resume and shoot it out to as many hiring employers as you can find, it is important to spend time focusing on your presentation.

Prepare Multiple Resumes

One of the biggest benefits of being able to send your resumes electronically to potential employers is the fact that it is simple to make small changes in order to cater to each potential employer. Utilizing the internet, doing research on organizations with job openings has never been so simple. By understanding a little bit about the corporate culture of these businesses you are able to maximize your chances of being hired by tweaking your resume to fit in better with their style. Preparing to apply to a company that focuses on renewable resources and clean energy? You may want to add past experiences or qualifications which may not be the same as what you would include for an oil and gas conglomerate.

Take The Time To Make It Look Professional

Just because you have the ability to deliver your resume to hundreds of employers on a single day through job engines like Wrangle.ca does not mean that it should be a process completed as quickly as possible. If you’re serious about landing a job, take the time to do it right. Although digital transmissions have become the new standard in business, don’t skip over the professionalism you would display if meeting with a hiring manager in person. When it comes to resumes, take the time to create an attractive cover page, and format your document to be as visually appealing as it would be if it were printed out, bound and hand delivered.

Following Up With Potential Employers

Another mistake that job applicants frequently make in today’s technological age is that they fail to follow up with potential employers. Quantity is better than quality right? Not when it comes to landing a well-paying, desirable job. When sending resumes electronically, be sure to keep track of who you’re contacting and be dedicated to following up with them. This can be as simple as a follow-up e-mail or even taking the time to get them on the phone. Regardless of how impressive your resume is, getting a sought after job involves marketing yourself and standing out from the crowd. By following up after submitting your electronic resume, you can ensure your name stays fresh in the hiring manager’s mind.

Taking the time to properly prepare and submit your electronic resumes can mean the difference between remaining on the hunt and landing an impressive job. Too frequently, the ability to mass e-mail resumes makes potential employees come off as un-impressive or even lazy to hiring managers. By making yourself stand out through your resume and follow-up, you can maximize your chances of getting called back for the position you really want.

Improving Your Efficiency In The Classroom And Out With Flashcards In Education

Flashcards in education are incredibly versatile and can be used not only for a multitude of subjects but for any age. They are a great method of improving your retention while learning new subjects. The repeated utilization of flashcards from a school library or classroom makes them suitable for memorization especially for subjects such as mathematics. It is the perfect technique for improving associated.

Creativity in Flashcards:

Perhaps one the best aspects to flashcards is the inherit creativity. There are popular methods of using flashcards such as writing an equation on one side and the answer on the other, or a word in one language on one side and the corresponding word in another language on the other side. But there is no limit to how they can help. You can write a thought on one side with written bullet points and a corresponding photo or image on the other. Students and teachers can add colors to the cards to make them flashier or to symbolize something. For instance, a particular color on one side may indicate one language or one equation while the answer or result is written in another color.

For students, the biggest benefits to using flashcards include improving memory, association, mathematics, verbal, interaction, cognitive, listening, and more. For parents, the biggest benefits to using flashcards include having the tools to aid children with learning and exam prep. Families of all income levels can incorporate flashcards either by purchasing them or making them at home. If families make the flashcards at home, they reap additional benefits such as family interaction while the cards are being made. And of course using them at home increases family interaction too. For teachers, flashcards in education can help team students up in partners, so that each member can help the other and the students are forced to take turns. They can access the flashcards from a physical location such as the library of flashcards or from a virtual location such as an online centralized location like ProProfs. They also help teacher-directed study and enhanced learning. Teachers can create flashcards utilizing their imaginative teaching methodology and enjoy a creative outlet simultaneously.

There are many places to get flashcards in education. You can buy them in conjunction with particular course books or grade books, or buy them in sets at teaching stores. You can also make them yourself. You don’t have to be artistic to do this. You can copy pictures from clip art on Microsoft Word, or from the internet. The important thing is to ensure all of the photos you use are the same size and that you use different colors for different sets. For example, all math flashcards may be pink while all Language Arts cards may be blue. It is important to use paper that is thick enough that students cannot see through the cards. If you laminate them, they are easier to clean after small hands have played with them and they will last longer. The main advantage to making your own flashcards in education is that you can create sets to match your needs. You can create a set of flashcards to accompany a story book you are reading in class or a graded reader. You can also have students make them. Students can each draw one item from the current week’s vocabulary, for example, and that item can be mounted to the card to create the classroom set. You can test many skills with these cards. To help identification you can reveal a word and then cover the flashcard with another paper and slowly show it. The students then have to guess which card it is.

Advertising and Marketing Methods are Working

Signs Your Advertising and Marketing Methods are Working

Knowing that your advertising efforts are paying off doesn’t just come from getting an immediate sales boost. It can take time to see the difference in your profits. But, here are some signs you’re doing things right:

  • You’re getting more phone calls
  • You’re getting more foot traffic.
  • More repeat clients
  • You’re developing an online following or getting more website traffic.

Phone Calls

It takes time for your advertising efforts to pay you off financially but if you’re getting an influx of phone calls, maybe an ad you recently placed or that new sign on your building has started something good. Consider tracking the number of phone calls or email inquiries you’re getting so you can measure it against various advertising techniques.

Foot Traffic

People often browse for something a few times before buying. More people than ever do a bit of comparison shopping, particularly for bigger ticket purchases. Try tracking your store’s foot traffic after a recent advertising campaign so you can try to measure whether or not you’re seeing a positive difference or not.

Repeat Customers

Advertising doesn’t have to be aimed at new customers only.  A new ad technique could bring older customers back as well. If possible, track how things are going with existing customers so you can ascertain what sort of ratio of business and business inquiries are a new customer versus a repeat customer.

The Internet

Offline advertising efforts can bring about online results. The reverse is also true. Ads online can bring in foot traffic. Local or in-store advertising about your website could bring traffic to your site or a social media profile. If you’re doing local advertising and you can direct people to your website, this is a great way of measuring results. There are many tools that can help you track how visitors arrived so you can try to map that back to various advertising efforts.  If you’re getting visitors to your site and an increasing number of people following you on Facebook and Twitter and other social networking sites, this is a good sign and can lead to further success as well.

Regardless of what sort of advertising methods you’ve tried lately, analysing results is the key to continually evolving to meet the needs of past and future clients.  Advertising and marketing don’t necessarily pay off immediately but an ongoing focus on them will help you increase your customer base and market share continually.

5 Things To Avoid In Your Work Look

Dressing up to work is an important part of being a professional and it is important that you pay attention to your work outfits. Sometimes you might end up getting ready in a hurry but it is important that you avoid making mistakes in your look even when you are rushing through your wardrobe. Here are the five biggest mistakes you need to avoid from doing when you are dressing for work.

1. Too Many Accessories

If you feel like your work look is too boring try adding some colour or a few pieces of accessories but don’t pour all of the content of your jewellery box on you. Wearing too much jewellery can distract the attention away from your professionalism to your dangling jewellery and this is never a good idea.

Wearing a nice watch, a few rings and a lovely necklace are enough to show some personality but won’t blind your co-workers.

2. Revealing Clothes

You want to show your professionalism at work and not your skin. Thus it is essential that you don’t wear clothes that are too revealing. It doesn’t mean that you need to wear a sack on your head to work but that you are covering your skin.

There are a lot of stylish kaftans, for example, to wear during the summer months when the weather is hotter. Materials are also important when you pick out clothes and thus if you get too hot at work perhaps you can try going with a more breathing fabric such as cotton.

3. Flip-flops

You should also avoid wearing flip-flops even during the hot summer months. There are a lot of great shoes that you can choose for work but flip-flops are certainly not part of that equation.

Instead, opt for some of the options recommended by the Business Week magazine. Make sure you always pick shoes that are comfortable because you will be wearing them for a long time.

4. Ill-Fitting Clothes

As well as staying away from too revealing clothes it is also important that you don’t buy clothes that don’t fit properly. Ill-fitting clothes aren’t going to make you look very professional and you should always try to make sure your clothes aren’t too small or too big.

Opt for stylish abayas for women and make sure that you have the right size. Shopping for clothes online is simple and there are many sites that specialise in great religious clothing such as Aab Collection and this can ensure you look modest at work.

5. Avoid Latest Trends From Big Chains

It is also much more professional to go with quality clothing and buy from smaller fashion retailers instead of big supermarket chains. This way you can reuse your clothes multiple times because they have longevity instead of pure fashion appeal. When you buy from local small producers you are also guaranteed to not have other people wearing the same outfits.

If you make sure you don’t make the above mistakes then you are going to look professional at work. And if you want to avoid the rush then it is a good idea to keep your work clothes separate from your casual clothes to ensure you can find them in a rush.

Fool Proof Dental Marketing Strategies

When you are running a dental practice, attending to your patients is just one thing on your to-do list. Most of the time, you’ll be racking your brain for different ways to market your practice to prospects and existing patients, alike. Although there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to marketing your practice but there are some universal principles which you can turn to.

Know what you want.

When trying to come up with a new marketing strategy, you need to be specific with the goals that you want to achieve. For instance, how many new patients do you expect to have after you launch this campaign and what kind of services do you wish for them to avail of? Setting your expectations right is crucial because this will allow you to calibrate your campaign accordingly.

Make your patients your prime priority.

This does not have to be mentioned, but sadly it is often overlooked. There are a lot of reasons why dentists fall short when it comes to taking care of their patients. The recent recession may make them more focused on improving their productivity rather than helping out the patients which they have left. But there are two kinds of marketing – external and internal. You do not just market your practice with the help of ads and billboards but also by satisfying your current patients. Your patients will talk and this can help boost your practice’s productivity through word of mouth marketing.

Help rather than sell.

People do not like it when you aggressively sell them something. This is why patients and prospects are often repelled by old car salesman-like speeches. On the other hand, people respond positively when you mean to help them rather than sell to and earn profits out of them. This is why when you’re trying to offer a solution to your patients’ and prospects’ dental woes, help them by presenting a genuinely helpful solution rather than focusing on making a deal. This way, your patients and prospects will learn to trust you.

Make your patients your partners.

Don’t be ashamed to ask help from your patients especially the ones who have been loyal to you through the years. Word of mouth marketing is still here to stay, and there are no other people you can rely on to spread the word about your practice other than your patients. So when you feel that they were extremely happy with your service, ask them to refer you to their family members and friends so that you can also help them out just like you’ve done so with them.

Resume Mistakes

Resume Mistakes

It is usual that when you write a resume you must commit some mistakes.
So prevention is critical, whether you’re writing your first resume or
revising it for a mid-career job search.

1.Typos and Grammatical Errors
Your resume needs to be grammatically perfect. If it isn’t, employers
will read between the lines and draw not-so-flattering conclusions about
you.

2. Lack of Specifics
Employers need to understand what you’ve done and accomplished

3.Highlighting Duties Instead of Accomplishments
It’s easy to slip into a mode where you simply start listing job duties on
your resume

4.No Action Verbs
Avoid using phrases like “responsible for.” Instead, use action verbs.

5.Incorrect Contact Information
Never display incorrect information in your resume because it shows how
careless you are about the job.

Tips For International Students Applying For Jobs In America While Attending School

Many international students decide they want to start their careers in the United States instead of returning to their home country once they graduate. It’s important for international students to understand that the job hunt for them is much different than the job hunt for American citizens.

If you’re an international student applying for a job, the following are a few tips to help you find success.

1. Know the law.

It is illegal for students with a student visa to work off-campus during their first year as a student. If you are in your first year of school, don’t even bother applying for jobs, as you will not be accepted.

Most students with a student visa are usually allowed to stay in the country for one year after graduation as long as they have a job. This is done to provide the student with real-life work experiences. Keep this in mind when applying for jobs as well.

2. Know what’s expected of your employer.

If you want to work in the United States, you will eventually need to possess a work visa. This is something that your employer will need to sign off on to help keep you in the country legally. Make sure that you know what’s expected of your employer and be willing to discuss this with them during your interview or application process. The more educated you are on what they need to do, the more you’re proving your worth.

3. Prove your communication skills.

The biggest reason that American companies don’t hire international students is fear of poor communication skills. Make sure that you do everything you can to become fluent in English. Take English classes or writing classes to help you learn how to speak and write well. Ensure your resume, cover letter and any other written correspondence are written perfectly, and feel free to follow up with a phone call to showcase your English abilities. If you can prove that you’re fluent in English and that there will not be any communication barriers, you’re making yourself look more appealing. (Note: being bilingual is a huge plus when it comes to getting a job, so be sure to note that you can speak another language fluently on your resume.)

4. Have a strong educational background.

Make sure your academics provide the employer with reason to want to hire you. Study hard to do well in school and provide transcripts that prove how well you did in classes. Join groups while in school that will make you stand out and help boost your career, and take on part-time jobs that can help you gain any necessary skills you could use later in your career. The more experienced you can become in your field, the better opportunity you have of being hired.

5. Adhere to American business etiquette.

Certain things are expected of applicants in the American business world, and it’s important that you not only learn, but also implement these factors into your job hunt. Be sure to create a resume with a cover letter to send off to prospective employers. Have these items proofed to ensure grammar and context are correct, and be willing to provide any other documentation that could be necessary, such as portfolios, references or copies of your current student visa.

You should also be sure to dress in business professional attire, keep eye contact with your interviewer, and have a firm handshake. Do your research on the company too to prove that you know what you’re getting into and why you’d want to work for that company.

Right Web Host for your Blog

How to Choose the Right Web Host for your Blog

Whether it’s personal or business, choosing the right web host is imperative to the success of your blog. There are many companies that provide free blogs that you can easily setup, however if you want to have full ownership of your blog, and your own domain, you will need to host the blog yourself. With so many options and plans from hundreds of companies, there is a lot to take into consideration. Your web host is your online landlord and just like shopping for a home for your family, shopping for a home for your blog takes time and research. When choosing your web host, these are the most common factors to look at:

Type of Blog:

When deciding to find a host for your blog, you must first decide on the type of blog you are planning. Blogs that contain more written content than images will require less web space than blogs that are image rich. This factor is not as much of a worry these days as it was in the past as most hosting companies provide unlimited space even in their cheapest basic plan.

Choosing what method of blog creation you will be using is also a major factor in your decision. The most common blog software in use today is WordPress. This free software allows you to create your blog in the style you want. Many hosting companies offer easy installation of WordPress, even on their most basic plan.

Databases:

With any blog, especially those that use WordPress, databases are needed to keep your blog organized. When choosing a hosting service, be sure they allow for the creation of databases. MySql is the most popular open source database today. Most web hosting companies not only support MySql but also provide easy database creation.

E-mail:

If you want the appearance of a professional blog, especially if you plan to monetize later, having an email address through your domain is a great way to appear professional. Most hosting companies will offer free e-mail accounts under your domain. When you get to the point where you want to allow advertising on your blog, the email address will make you seem together and professional.

Reliability and Support:

Nothing is worse than getting hundreds of followers on your blog and suddenly it is unreachable. It can ruin the confidence you spent so much time building for your fans. Reliability is the most important factor. Web hosting companies will offer 99.9% up time on their servers. That is the standard; there is no 100% guarantee in technology. In retrospect if you experience problems, you want a company that offers 24/7 customer support. Be sure they are reachable by phone to assure the fastest resolution possible.

After choosing a host, if you are in the process of building your blog and are consistently having problems accessing your control panel or blog, notify your web hosting company. There may be a chance you are on a new server, or less monitored server that needs tweaking. If the problems persist you may want to check with another host before launching a blog that won’t be reachable.

Whether your blogging about your life, your children, your job, or the things that get under your skin, you want to choose the right hosting company to voice your opinions. Research your options, price, and features in order to find the right company for you. Don’t be afraid to call the company beforehand and speak to a sales rep about your project, most companies have features that may be useful that aren’t advertised on their website. Once you feel confident that you made the right decision, enjoy your blog, post often, and create a wonderful outlet for your thoughts.

Jonathan Sanders creates websites and blogs about many Internet subjects. He recommends checking out these small business web hosting reviews, as well as some great tips for choosing the best web hosting for business.

Learning Through Play – Is It The Most Successful Teaching Method?

All studies show that during first 8 years of their lives children learn the most and develop some of the most crucial abilities. It is also a well known fact that the skills and knowledge gained during the first 8 years of life is most solid, abiding and fundamental for developing other, more advanced experiences. These facts caught the attention of many experts in education, who looked for the most optimal way the children absorb new experiences and turn them into solid knowledge. They discovered that learning through play is the natural way, in which children acquire new knowledge and skills. These studies changed the way we perceive children’s play and brought the question: can similar method be used also at more advanced levels of education?

The benefits of learning through play

Early learning of children is a complex, not yet fully understood process: what seems to be simple children play is in fact an exercise, which develops physical, cognitive, emotional and social skills. Children learn the most through operations on concrete objects and they develop abstract thinking by experiencing the concrete objects and observing certain regularities, as it happens naturally during play. Instead of focusing on passive tasks, children, who learn through play can develop abilities these passive tasks do not induce, for example the ability to cooperate with peers, to solve problems in a creative manner, to learn how to express one’s emotions in a socially acceptable ways.

In other words, learning through play is a more holistic and all-comprehensive process than passive learning – instead of completing only the arbitrarily chosen tasks, the children are able to develop various abilities, also these, which are not the main goal of the task. No wonder that learning through play is preferred by children and perceived as fun, stress-free activity.

Can learning through play be used at more advanced levels of education?

This brings us to the question is learning through play the perfect method for teaching everything? Unfortunately no. Learning through play in its simplest form is a method of developing practical abilities, but it does not teach the children facts. To do that a solid portion of theory and factual knowledge has to be incorporated into learning through play. Certain education methods, such as HighScope or the Montessori Method, prove that this combination is possible and provide curricula based on learning through play approach and adjusted to the requirements of the elementary school system. In both these methods the children are encouraged to take control over the process of educating, while the teacher’s role is to facilitate and observe the learning process, instead of giving it an arbitrary shape. Learning through play method applied to mathematics can also bring surprisingly good results.

Singapore Math is a math curriculum inspired by learning through play. According to this method the students learn all math concepts on concrete and pictorial representations, before they move to the abstract stage. The method is focused on developing problem solving attitude in students, who often work in groups and solve math problems together. Singapore Math method is first introduced in elementary schools, but it can be continued also in middle and high school, providing outstanding results.

To sum it up, learning through play is a surprisingly effective, welcomed by children method, which assumes more holistic perspective on education. It is the natural way, through which we all learn, and it involves many different skills and abilities. While the method has its limitations it can be easily combined with theoretical knowledge and adapted to more advanced levels of education, providing very good results.

Why Google Plus Is Better Than Facebook?

7 Reasons Why Google Plus Is Better Than Facebook?

Google plus has made a head start in the social networking arena. It’s been only eight months and Google plus has already touched the 100 million mark in February 2012. With further estimates that Google may reach 400 million users by the end of 2012, it is all set to give tough fight to the present social networking leader- Facebook. Let us now analyze some reasons how Google plus fares over Facebook?

Clean And Simple Design

Google plus has a clean, simplistic yet productive design which has become one of the main reason why most of the people prefer Google plus over Facebook. Also unlike Facebook, Google plus pages are free from those annoying advertisements!

Circles

In facebook, you are either friends with someone or not. Google plus on the other hand understands that there are lots of other relations in the real world other than friends and provides you the option to add people based on these relations. (Family, acquaintance, co-workers, crushes or whatever you want to add)

Google Plus In Mobile Devices

Nowadays people are using mobile devices like Smart phones and tablet PCs more than before and more so for social networking. Although Facebook provides its own Facebook mobile application; however, it is no match against the huddle application provided with Google plus. It is fast and integrates well with mobile OS especially if it is an android device. Also it provides chat function to communicate with people on G+.

Hangout

Google plus provides the hangout option where you can make video calls, which is pretty much similar to facebook with the new Skype integration. However there is one major difference- unlike facebook, one can chat with up to ten people in the Google plus hangout at a given time. This can be helpful in video conferencing.

Game Updates And Requests

Facebook walls are filled with irritating messages like- ‘so and so has reached level 3 in so and so ville’, ‘so and so sent you a request to send them a gift’ etc. which sometimes can get quite annoying. Google stream on the other hand strictly means business.

Integration With Email, Documents And Other Services

The best thing about any Google plus product is that it is integrated with others so well that you can easily seamlessly change from one to another, so you can easily change your status while you are sending email.

Amazon – the Future of Shopping?

They say that the high street is dying. In some towns more than 30% of stores lie empty, as shoppers head to out-of-town shopping centres for many purchases, and rely on mail order for things that can wait.

Amazon is doing particularly well at the moment. It started life as a small, American online bookstore, and went on to become a multi-national concern. Today, the site has branches all over the world, and it doesn’t just sell books. You can buy games, toys, and even groceries via Amazon today, and they even have their own electronic device – the Kindle – an e-reader that will presumably secure Amazon’s future even if books go out of style.

Why is Amazon So Successful?

Part of Amazon’s success can be attributed to the fact that they got in ahead of the rush.  Amazon was founded in 1995, during the height of the dot com boom. Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos, started small, and while many of his competitors shot for rapid growth and mega-bucks, he was happy with slow but sustainable growth. Amazon survived when the dot-com bubble burst, and by then it was firmly entrenched in the minds of the public as the go-to place for hard to find books.

Amazon Make Things Easy

The challenge for any online retailer is persuading people to click for their products, rather than walk into the store. This is one thing that Amazon does really well. Once you’ve bought something from Amazon, buying again is easy thanks to their one-click purchasing tool. You pick the product you want, select the speed of delivery you prefer, and then sit back and relax.

Postage and Packing

Amazon has shipping down to a fine art. Where consumers may be nervous about buying from other online retailers that squeeze books into Jiffy bags that are the wrong size, Amazon has carefully designed cardboard sleeves which will protect most books, and uses cardboard boxes that are lovingly packed for larger orders.

Digital Download

While there will always be a demand for some form of physical product – whether that’s clothes, toys, or food, there’s a growing demand for digital distribution too. Amazon identified this, and has already got a strong digital distribution system for subscribing to premium blogs, downloading MP3s, and downloading ebooks. This ensures that even if we do end up in a future where cardboard boxes and jiffy bags are looked upon as being as quaint as the LP and analogue radio, Amazon will still be relevant.

It’s this forward thinking attitude that has made the company so strong, and so popular. Other retailers sell just one thing, and don’t even do that well. When you see cardboard boxes with the Amazon logo on them, the chances are good that they’ll contain a book – but that’s not the only thing they sell. That box could contain a DVD, a video game, or something completely different.

To the consumer, it doesn’t matter – all that matters is that they paid an acceptable price, and that the product got their safely on time. That is what Amazon does well, and that’s what makes them the future of shopping.

This post was written by Crispin Jones on behalf of UK Packaging who can supply Jiffy bags and a great range of cardboard boxes to suit all needs. Crispin writes on business and retail.

5 Tips To Attract, Keep And Motivate Your Employees

Finding great young employees is one thing, but motivating them and keeping them for the long term is another. In a lot of Western countries however it’s a must. With the numbers of experienced and high quality workers reaching retirement ever-more commonly, finding young blood to replace them and mould into their boots is another.

Studies from HR recruitment companies suggest that retaining employees is one if not the single greatest challenge there is in organisations. So, in short, keeping people happy, giving them those opportunities through training and using leaders programs is a necessity nowadays when hoping to retain the best young staff for the long term.

Replacing employees is not only an irritation, but it also costs money and in most businesses this can run into the tens of thousands. In larger businesses this can run into millions in a year and really is not a good thing.

One of the most commonly utilised ways to keep employees is through using the PRIDE process – what is it? Well, we take a look.

Positive Training and Working Environment

One of the main reasons people quit is down to their relationship with their immediate supervisor. However, many managers are unaware of how their actions affect staff and turnover. The big issue here is management training as this plays a crucial role in maintenance and retention of staff. Managers need to understand how to retain staff and increase employee engagement in the business.

Recognise and Reward the Right Behaviour

People want to feel appreciated and though money works to an extent, appreciation and rewards for the right behaviour work more so. Non-monetary incentives can be far greater than monetary ones. So, whether it’s a birthday cake for an employee or a more creative solution such as a First American’s offer of the Greased Monkey award of a plastic monkey, jar of Vaseline and a $50 dinner cert offered to computer technicians who are the best at solving issues in the company – it’s all about recognition and appreciation.

Involve

Getting people involved in work gives them a sense of ownership of that work. Listening to employee’s advice and tips creates a healthy environment that people can get to grips with. For instance, Google’s offering to let employees work an evening a week on a project they felt most suited to is one such example of involving employees and empowering them by doing so. These things create interest and involved and when people feel like this they know they’re an intrinsic part of the business.

Development

Career opportunities are as important as money and as many as four in ten workers in studies say they’d be happy to leave their job for an equally salaried one if they hand more chances for career development. Offering your workers the chance to train and improve themselves not only helps you as a business but it also encourages them to stay within your business and creates lower rates of employees moving elsewhere.

Evaluate

Regular evaluation is the key to constant improvement. This allows you to see what’s working for your workforce and how to progress. It looks at attitudes, morale, engagement and turnover in the workforce and is ever so important at keeping staff. Here are some ways to evaluate:

  • Employee surveys
  • Interviews and surveys concerning new and leaving employees
  • Flexible work arrangements
  • Measure cost of turnover
  • Tell managers they are responsible for turnover of employees
  • Better matched employment processes
  • Look into high turnover departments or areas of the business
  • Design orientation programs and hone them

So, in conclusion even though employees love the fast cars that we offer at 3monthcarhire.co.uk and enjoy many of the other material perks – there’s so much more to motivation as you can see.

With these tips you should be able to keep your employees for longer and accelerate your businesses performance.

The Best Ways To Improve Your Chances Of Finding A Job

It’s no secret: the job market is still pretty rough. With an unemployment rate still hovering around 7.2%, we’re not close enough to pre-recession levels to breathe a sigh of relief. Many people are still hurting, including college graduates who thought that by earning a degree they would pretty much be guaranteed a job. Unfortunately, with the shrinking of nearly every part of the labor market, some skills are in higher demand than others, which leaves many people out in the cold.

If you read magazine articles or blog posts at all, you’ve inevitably come across pieces like this one that stress how everyone should learn how to code (at least a little bit). This is just one of the pieces of common wisdom floating around to help those struggling land a job that will pay them a livable wage. If you’ve been struggling to find work or you’re looking to move on to a job that may be more fulfilling and, yes, pays you more, here are a few ways to help yourself. With these skills on your resume, you’ll have a better shot at grabbing a hiring manager’s attention and landing an interview. While nothing is a guarantee, having a Microsoft certification or proficiency in Javascript on your resume will almost undoubtedly at least make whoever is reading resumes take a look at yours twice.

-Pick up basic HTML/CSS skills

No matter who you are or what you do, learning the basics of HTML and CSS (the markup languages used on every website) can help you make yourself more marketable. The basics won’t make you a world-class programmer. In fact, you won’t even be considered a programmer. But, that’s okay! Not everyone needs to be a programmer nor should everyone. However, with so much of business being web oriented, knowing your way around the basics is a no brainer. Do you need to know how to build the site from the ground up? Absolutely not. Should you be comfortable doing some minor edits and at least understanding source code if you’re shown some? Yes. Bosses will love that.

-Do interesting things in your spare time

Managers want to see that you’re a curious person who is willing to do things just for the sake of learning or because you have a passion. Start a blog, an email newsletter, anything. Even take classes on some esoteric topic and apply that knowledge somehow. It’s a cliché, but companies really do want people who can “think outside the box.” Show them how interesting you are.

-Get certifications

To go back to programming for a second, what if you already have those skills? If you’re already been working in web development, why not get some more credentials to boost your earning power? Find an Adobe or Microsoft certification course for cheap and grab that piece of paper. Certifications show you’re a go-getter who wants to continually sharpen your skills and stay marketable. Companies are always looking for people who know the latest and most popular tech.

The bottom line is: keep learning. No matter where you are in life, if you keep pushing ahead with your education (formal or not) you’re going to improve your chances of landing a decent job. Show employers why they’d be foolish to pass you up. Embrace technology because it’s become inescapable.

Design Your Site for Marketing

Design Your Site for Marketing


Marketing can be the best way to build your business, or the best way to send it plummeting to the ground. When you market your products or services, people should want to buy. Whether they buy or not, they are going to talk about your company. People will either have good things to say or bad things.
When marketing online, the first thing a person sees is the design of your website. A good design will make it easier to sell your products and services. It does not matter if you are selling, promoting great products or great services; a poor design will ruin it for the customer making them bounce off your site. A Customer will only pay for quality and that means even the quality of your website design.

Make It Look Professional:
When marketing products and services, your web design should be appealing to the customer, yet show the utmost professionalism. You want your customers to know you are a legitimate business selling legitimate products and services. Fun, crazy, cluttered, hearts, and rainbow designs make your website look trashy and phony. Try using a simple design that is easy on the eyes. You don’t want to be too flashy yet you don’t want to be boring either. You want just enough texture to make your site stick out, but you don’t want to seem childish.
Use Spell Check:
One of the major problems with online websites is that they quickly do their web design and then start putting up their information. A major turn-off in web design is when a customer flips to your page and the first word they see is spelled in-correctly. This says we just don’t care what we look like. Who is going to buy your product when you can’t even spell the product your selling?
Check the Coloring:
It needs to be appealing not appalling. Customers are not going to stay on your site let alone buy your product if they can’t even read the information on your site. Color can keep a person on your site or turn them away. Too much coloring and too much going on, overwhelms the customer. For instance, a blue background with blue lettering is overwhelming to try and read. Keep the coloring simple. The background should be light enough that product reviews, information, or services offered are readable when placed on top of the background.
Make it Easy:
Typically a customer comes to your website to look for something specific. If it is too hard to maneuver around your site, the customer will move on. Allow for a search bar to be in your website so a customer can search for what they are looking for. In your design, make it simple to find the products or services offered… To ensure professionalism and ease, minimize the code and highlight the content; put the content toward the top of the site’s source code, and html tags as indicators of your site’s content. The easier it is for a customer to find what they are looking for and check out, the more they will buy.

Your design is the framework to your entire website. Good design also helps build your SEO rank which in turn sends you more customers. Search engines are constantly monitoring your website. They weed out the amateurs by looking for quality indicators in your website. One quality indicator is your design. If your design is reliable according to the quality indicators, your site may be on one of the first three pages of the search engine results. This optimizes your chances of getting more customers.
Another important factor in making it to the first three search pages is your bounce rate. A good design keeps customers interested, and they, therefore, stay on your website. However, if they see a poor design and bounce off the site, your SEO rank goes down. As this goes down, less and less people are viewing your site. It is a domino effect from there. So, it is imperative, to making your company succeed, to take pride in your design by making it look professional, readable, and easy to use.

Finding the right field marketing companies for branding your business is a vital decision, and one of many that Nate Dorcett suggests as an advertising consultant.

Benefits of Discount Promotions in E-Commerce

Benefits of Discount Promotions in E-Commerce

In e-commerce, traffic is imperative to success. With the holidays approaching, shoppers are targeted in many different ways. For those who count on online shoppers, targeting shoppers isn’t always easy. Unlike TV commercials during their favorite programs, radio commercials playing during rush hour,  or newspaper inserts strategically placed in the most popular sections, reaching shoppers online takes a lot of research, enticement, and effort. For that discount promotions is key to attracting shoppers to your site. In the world of SEO, discount promotions can lead to gold.
The SEO Benefits:
SEO (search engine optimization) is essential for your e-commerce site to rank well in the search engines, that is common knowledge. Those search engines are used by much of your customer traffic, that is more common knowledge. What is not common knowledge is the beneficial role to your SEO that discount programs can play.

For instance, a properly executed discount promotion will add more keywords to your already existing SEO plate. If you are selling laptops, additional keywords could include laptop sale, discounted laptops, laptop coupons, laptop deals, etc. If you have a brick and mortar store that you also sell in, you may even add your locations, i.e. discounted laptops Roanoke VA.
Strategies to Implement Discount Promotions:

There are many different ways to initiate a discount promotion. Many online retailers have difficulty in starting their promotions effectively. Here are a few strategies to consider when deciding to start your promotion.

Strategy One:

Take a product that you know is popular and offer a discount to your customers. This is a form of public relations that allows you to reach out to the community of customers that normally couldn’t afford the product.

Strategy Two:

Introduce new products that are popular. If you have recently acquired a new product that is selling well by other retailers, offer a discount during its launch. Many who are looking for that item will see the savings. This is a great way to bring in new customers who didn’t know your store was there until searching for that product.

Strategy Three:

Advertise as many product promotions as possible. The use of coupons in SEO makes it easier to advertise than many know. Facebook also offers a coupon program that will increase your fans and bring new shoppers to your store. As your fans “like” your product through your Facebook page, your coupon code will become visible to them and their friends will be notified, in turn bringing new customers to your site. Add your promotions to existing advertising campaigns and social media sites. The up to date feeds are a great incentive for adding new products that target your specific audience.

Strategy Four:

Banners are another way to use SEO to gain exposure for your site. There are numerous sites that will allow you to exchange links through something called a banner. The ads are in the banner for your site which is placed in the code that is linked to your brand image. That image should represent the brand name that you emulate to the public. Most affiliates provide banners for the products you sell, allowing easy setup for your pages. You may even work with other sites in a banner exchange agreement. Many sites will allow your banner on their site in exchange for page space on yours.

Strategy Five:

As mentioned in the SEO benefits section of this article, meta-tags and keywords are imperative. With each discount promotion you initiate, keywords and meta-tags should be used. This will allow more traffic through search engines as they re-index your page. The more relevant keywords you provide, the more terms you will be included in.
All of these strategies offer an e-commerce site the ability to rank well as they maintain loyalty and gain customers through discount promotions. Create the discounts and add them to your site, update your advertising plan to include the new promotions and continuously update your social media pages to include the sales. Soon you will notice more traffic and build credibility with your existing customers.

10 Reasons To Learn Online

Online education is becoming more and more prevalent at all levels of education. For those who aren’t sure whether or not to take the plunge and start learning over the Internet, there are a lot of persuasive reasons to do so.

1. Work on Your Time

Online learning allows students to learn when they have time to do so. There’s no requirement for a student to be in class at a certain time, or to do his or her work on someone else’s schedule. As long as it gets turned in by the deadline, there’s no problem.

2. Class is Everywhere

The physical classroom is a bit of an outmoded concept, and for students learning online the classroom is as close as a laptop or a smart phone. Learning can be done from any of a dozen machines plugged straight into the Internet, and that is a convenience hard to argue with.

3. No Classmates

Many students find the presence of rowdy classmates, or just having to learn as part of a crowd, to be a distraction they could do better without. Online learning cuts out the swell, and lets a student learn in a comfortable, individual environment.

4. Class Flexibility

Students who take online classes have the ability to take whatever classes interest them, within reason. This means their attention is more engaged, and they want to keep learning.

5. Travel or Health Concerns

Online classes eliminate the need for students to worry about travel or health problems that would keep them out of the classroom. This is a huge advantage for many students who would otherwise have serious problems.

6. Ease of Communication

Communicating with both teachers and fellow students is much easier with online courses. The channels of communication, from email, to texting, to video chat via Skype, it’s all available for students to get the answers they need.

7. Simplicity of Reaching Teachers

In online classes there’s no need to shout in order to have one’s voice heard. Reaching the teacher and asking questions is a relatively simple manner that can be done via a dozen different technological solutions. In the end if someone really needs to reach the teacher though, that student can always pick up the phone and make a call.

8. Cost

Online classes, as a rule, tend to be cheaper than regular, more traditional classes. This is a huge advantage for students who need to pinch every penny when it comes time to get their college educations.

9. Improving Technology

As technology grows faster, brighter, and more accessible there are more and more options available every day for online classes and these non-traditional students. Whether it’s holograms or video chat at the speed of light, the classroom of the future might look like something out of a science fiction movie.

10. Move at a Unique Pace

With online classes there’s no need for a student to be dragged along in the undertow of the whole. If a student can progress faster, then he or she can go faster. If the student wants to go slower, there’s also room for that as well.

Google, Microsoft, and Facebook Join Forces to Fight Phishing

Phishing is one of the most subtle and devious threats to Internet security today. Passwords and digital databases are encrypted and secure. The weak link in the chain is, and always will be, the human involved. While database compromises do happen, and network security is always an issue, social hacking is the easiest way to steal someone’s password.

Phishers most commonly use e-mails designed to look authentic and ask you for your information. These e-mails generally use the templates of legitimate e-mails. World of Warcraft, a bank’s correspondence, your Facebook profile or Google’s homepage are all common targets. They will have legitimate unsubscribe links, valid links to the appropriate pages on the actual site, but they will ask you to click a link to reset your name and password.

The site that link takes you to will look legitimate, but when you put in your name and password, it won’t go to the actual site. Instead, it will be recorded and given to the phisher. This is how your identity is stolen, your passwords recorded and your internet security compromised.

Facebook, Microsoft, and Google are all primary targets for phishing scams, and they’re tired of dealing with it. It creates hassles for the companies, for the affected users and for other users. Together they’ve decided to take a stand against phishing attacks and try to do something about them. They’re working with a number of banks and security vendors to form a group to fight phishing. They’re calling it the Domain-based Authentication, Reporting and Conformance group, or DMARC.

DMARC’s goal is to create a system where e-mails can be authenticated on both ends, sender and receiver. This way the sender can make sure that they’re sending correspondence to the right person, and the receiver can make sure the e-mails they receive come from who they claim to come from. Phishing attempts and other similar scams can be weeded out and blocked automatically.

The group is working to create a standardized set of policies and a platform that will allow service providers to add security to their e-mail correspondence. This platform would have the added benefit of providing reports to the service provider, to show them what phishing attempts are being used and to learn from them.

Along with Google, Microsoft, and Facebook several other companies are getting in on the game. AOL, Paypal and Yahoo are participating alongside financial firms such as Bank of America and Fidelity. All of these companies lose millions every year to phishing schemes, both directly and indirectly. The loss of consumer confidence and the resulting loss of revenue is astounding.

As phishing schemes grow more and more sophisticated, so too must the security measures put into place to prevent them. The DMARC partnership hopes to provide just such a sophisticated platform to ensure that e-mail correspondence can have the trust it deserves. While currently in a basic draft, the DMARC platform should go a long way towards minimizing identity theft through e-mail and social networks.
