Interesting Business

by Ray

Maybe this an obvious point but it is extremely important: Your ability to make money and last in your IM business rests squarely on how you put it all together and make it work for you. Tons of people get involved with internet marketing. Some people do things better than you and many do it worse; so we think it is a great idea to want to do it the best – pass them all. The ideal is to continue learning, improving, expanding and marketing in diverse methods as much as possible. As you put any kind of ad campaign together, you will not always think about the various knowledge areas you are using. All the greatest business people on the net who started small eventually realized how critical testing all those small parts are for getting the greatest conversions. One thing you’ll quickly find about in network marketing is people trying to recruit you will not always be so upfront about things. It’s far better to go into this knowing the lay of the land so you know what you’re facing. Generating leads and talking to people you don’t know are chief among must-do activities. Knowing how to market, so you can get leads, is one way unless you have money to burn, and only promote a business that you know for a fact is legitimate and totally above board. There are actually many positive qualities about network marketing, so don’t be so quick to dismiss it. First, you must be willing to work every day and be all right with rejection because it’s very high. You’ll need to be able to go into permanent lead generation mode and know how to broach the subject with strangers. You need to invest your time in high-value tasks such as lead generation, but marketing is the single most important activity and learning how to find the right people and close them. Never go for quantity with your leads, you want quality which means people like yourself. One thing is certain, powerful strategies employing proven marketing ideas as well as others dictate that you know the finer aspects of such tools. We do realize that is an obvious statement to many of you, but that is not the case with everybody. One answer to this perpetual problem has been marketing forums because you can get acquainted with people who are doing the same things as you. We make every effort to cover as much as we can when we produce our articles, but just remember you will be receiving an incomplete set of guidelines. Definitely get in the habit of looking for opportunities and not necessarily with business opportunities; we are talking about marketing hybrids that can be created and used. Millions of people have tried and then quit network marketing, and the main reason is they were sold a dream and then found out it’s hard work. Chances are you have never been in business, and it’s a real shock to the system when reality sets in. If you cannot deal with being rejected, then either you learn to or you will give up. You’ll need to keep yourself in a positive frame of mind which is hard for most people. There really are easier ways to make money that are less personal, and you must be ready for the difficulties that are inherent in network marketing. You have probably seen people spend lots of cash on how-to e-books and videos, especially if you are a mover. All that educational material never gets read and no action is taken. Some people buy stuff, and actually equate that with doing work. Doing things every day is what you need to do. You need to learn to do training, and budget your money, as well. Anyone that wants success in this business will actually do something about it. Be honest with yourself, plus take action every day if you want to find success at some point. If you are not sure how to market or generate leads, then find out any way you can. Before you jump into network marketing, find the very best company that is established and known. Avoid thinking this model of business is so different from other models – it is and it is definitely not. The best and smartest way to proceed is with patience and a serious desire to learn more about how this interesting business works.

Is Micro-Blogging for you?

by Ray

Micro blogging is now the focus of the young generation. The frenzied lifestyle has created a style of blogging where posts can be completed in a matter of minutes, mostly on the go. Likewise, readers are also able to peruse the blog in a brief span of time.

Brief but expressive text or visual messages (or both) are the most essential qualities of microblogs. It is called lengthy post if it exceeds to a paragraph.

Twitter is probably the pioneer in microblogging platforms. In Twitter, users can post short blurbs aptly called ‘tweets’. Posting of links is allowed and visuals can be uploaded too. Twitter’s allowable posts are up to 140 characters and it efficiently create brief tweets which usually convey the present state (What you are presently doing).

Visual bloggers who own photo blogs also have a micro-blog counterpart. Tumblr is considered the best for photo micro-bloggers due to its uncomplicated features. It may have the means of carrying a full-on-blog, but its users chose to use single image as their blog entry, which is also a trend now. A short block of text is sometimes added if the image needs explanation.

A person viewing a micro blog would see a ‘rundown’ version of a blogger’s shared life instead of a ‘comprehensive’ one. Usual blog platforms can function like micro-blog, but others may already have available themes for that purpose. It’s up to the blogger to be innovative in condensing the article.
One subject matter to consider is the ‘365 anything’. ‘365 blogging’, as the name suggests, is a daily blogging activity on a single topic such as daily meal photos, daily haiku poems, daily drawing or daily projects. Day to day blog posting gets rid of long and meticulous explanations as what usual blogging requires.

On-the-go posts from a mobile device also fall in the category of micro-blogs. As users get hold of more sophisticated devices, the mobile micro blog community grows. Instagram is one of those communities, where users share collection of pictures.

An added category of micro-blogging is live blogging. The live blog is merely a feed of text but it is important because it usually covers an important event like a convention or a party.

Just like any other internet activity, micro-blogging has its pros and cons. Several people find it as a good tool to blog, while others do not consider it ‘real blogging’. Don’t mind what others may say or think because you’d still be the one to decide if micro-blogging suits your needs.
Learn how to start a blog, get people to read and share your blog, and make money from blogging with a step-by-step tutorial at howtostartablog.com.

10 important elements and principles of website design!!

by Ray

1.Colour
The color is paramount. Color creates specific moods, atmospheres, channels of emotions and each shadow has certain specific connotations associated with it. In short, color can make or break your design.
The color is not a principle simply limited to the elements of the mark, although the color extends everything, even in photographs. The filters and image adjusters gave us the unlimited ability to adjust the color and tone of our photographs.

2.Scale
The scale is a big part of the design, sometimes literally. In a very basic definition, the scale is the deliberate size of the individual elements. The scale can help us understand designs and images. In this way, the scale helps us to understand things. But, the scale should not always be based on realism.
This escalation of elements to signal importance is often called “hierarchy,” which we will discuss more in depth later, do not fear! But for now, let’s look at an example that uses the scale to signify importance.

3.Line
Lines can also channel some ideas. Straight lines can evoke order and cleanliness, wavy lines can create movements and zigzag lines can involve tension or excitement.
Let’s look at an example of leader lines in web design. This web page has a cool diagonal grid with very strong lines of action that take you from one section to another, in a quick zigzag way.

4.Transparency
Transparency is also a great technique for generating a sense of movement in static images.
Transparency isn’t just limited to digital graphics either. Check out how this invitation card for the New York Museum of Glass has aptly been printed onto transparent glass, giving the design a unique and engaging effect.

5.Texture
Clean, clear and elegant graphic designs can be wonderful, but sometimes roughing it out with some texture can be even better. The texture can add touch, depth and can add quite interesting effects to your design.
Do you see how many textures can create a muddy effect? The more textures you apply, the more difficult type and other elements are to see without scrambling effect around each letter.

6.Composition
The composition is a good point to finish, because it is the meeting of all the other principles that we have discussed.
“Composition” refers to the general arrangement of the elements in your design, which seems a bit annoying when you explain it this way, I know, but it is actually one of the funniest design elements. This is where you can play, experiment and make a good design.

7.Depth
Depth is an important and exciting principle in the world of design. Even with the most flattering media, you can create a sense of depth and an illusion that your design develops beyond the second dimension.
There are many techniques that you can use to communicate depth in your design, use a few.Now, shadows can be difficult devils, as they are not always linear, sometimes stretching, bending, distortion and deviation. Therefore, a good technique when exploring the use of shadow is to observe the shadows of the real world, see how the light hits several objects at different points and tries to replicate that.

8.contrast
Contrast is often the key magic ingredient to create your ‘pop’ designs, which is a demand (sometimes frustrating) for many design clients.
The contrast also has a great effect on readability and readability, this is an excellent reason why you see novels and many other publications printed in black on white background. Imagine if they printed using light gray on white background. The contrast would be very low and the type hard to read. So, if you use the type, make sure to increase this contrast.

9.Rules
This is a sure point to spark a lot of debate and to divide all the designers of the room – half proclaiming that there are no rules in design, the other protest, there are many. And technically, both are right.
As with any skill, there are things you need to learn, and that includes general rules. Things like: make sure your type is legible, learn kern, do not use pixelated images, and so on. These are the basics of design, elements that help you create a basic design.

10.Direction
An important aspect of many models is how the eye moves on the page, and the direction it takes – this is sometimes referred to as “flow”. How does your eye move on the page? Do your readers know exactly where to look next? Does the direction of your eye take logic?
However, instead of designing 100% of these models, try to adapt the flow and direction of your designs on a case by case basis. Just keep in mind that the eye gravitates to the top left of a page and that winds down from there.

Summary:
The design is a complicated business, full of principles, tricks, and techniques, of which you can learn others and some that you need to learn for yourself.
Take each “rule” you read with a grain of salt and apply it where it deems appropriate and discards the rules whenever you feel they are not.
To your success,

Five things to Earn Money on the Internet!

by Ray

Internet is growing very fast. As a result, there are more Internet users, more potential online customers and more opportunities to earn money on the Internet. But most of the people who try to earn money on the Internet are unable to use the benefits of this fast growing Internet world.

I can hear you say that “What are the mistakes they make?” or “What can be done to use the benefits of the Internet?”.

In this article, you’ll learn what to do to use the benefits of the fast growing Internet. You’ll learn five things to do to earn money on the Internet:

1. What you expect?

First of all, you need to know what you expect from the Internet. Are you looking to earn money to pay your credit card bills, to pay for your children’s education, to pay for a new car, to pay for a new house… or whatever else.

If you know what is your expectation, it’ll be easier to start an online business

2. Choose the right online business

If you have your own product and you want to sell it on the Internet, you can establish your own online business. But you can say that “I don’t have products to sell”.

If you don’t have your own products, join an affiliate program. There are so many companies who will pay you for selling their products. As I said, there are so many affiliate programs. So, which one is the best?

Some affiliate programs not only pay for your sales, but also pay for your affiliates sales. I mean, when an affiliate that you referred to this program makes a sale, you’ll earn commissions from this sale. You don’t even need to make sales with these affiliate programs. Only refer new affiliates to this program and earn when they sell something.

3. Learn how to get visitors to your website

When you join an affiliate program they give you some websites or web pages that include your referral link to sell their products. Most of the affiliate programs do that. You can use their websites or you can make your own website(s).

Whichever you choose, you need to get visitors to your website to sell something. To get visitors to your website, I recommend you read everything you find on the Internet. Read articles, join successful home business entrepreneurs’ newsletters, if you can afford, buy some books about online marketing or getting visitors to your website. They’ll really help you to succeed in your online business.

4. Get visitors to your website

This step will be very easy if you don’t ignore the third step. Everything that you read about online business will improve your experience. And the experience is the most important thing to get visitors to your website.

For example, you’ll find lots of articles about search engines. When you read them and use the knowledge that you get by reading these articles in your website, it won’t take a long time to get tons of traffic to your website.

When you have learned enough from articles, Computer Technology Articles, write your own article and submit it to websites that include articles in it. They don’t refuse to add your article to their website because they need more good content in their websites. And these articles bring new visitors to your website for FREE!

5. Be patient

The last and the most important thing that you need to do is to be patient. Maybe your online business won’t be a overnight success. Don’t worry. There are some people who didn’t earn even a single penny for years but now earn tens of thousands of $ with their online businesses. They didn’t earn money for a few years but they worked hard to improve their business and at least they got their reward as a great online income.

You can do the same. Maybe you don’t wait for years to be successful. Maybe it’ll be in a few months. It’s up to you. If you work hard and don’t miss opportunities to improve your online business – it can even be in a few weeks.

To your success…

Getting Involved: Is This Your Year To Step Up?

by Ray

We live in interesting times. You can empower yourself in times like this by getting involved, by contributing to the environment that directly affects your business.

It’s a new year, which can mean new beginnings.
I’d like to raise your awareness of a place where you can contribute, something I don’t hear talked about much.
As entrepreneurs, we are all leaders. We have the opportunity to really change things, to make a difference in a positive and significant way.
We spend a lot of time thinking about how we can be better leaders in our businesses. We spend time and energy on it. And that’s very important.
Now, I invite you to expand your awareness of how you can be a leader by looking to the community.

Your city or town is changing. It may even be growing. Every community has the potential to be a role model of what communities can do and be. And your business is operating within that environment. It’s affected by it. You can be part of deciding how things change and grow. What better way to have impact on your business than to be a leader in the community? I’m not necessarily talking about running for mayor, city council, or the county commissioner. It doesn’t have to be big. There are many ways you can get more involved in the community and be a leader.

Here are some ideas:

Step up and offer to lead in organizations you’re already a part of: hobby groups hiking or photography, religious communities, or service organizations.
Consider joining a city or county commission or committee that covers topics that affect you and your business, like sustainability, housing, and redevelopment.
Join a non-profit as a volunteer or even a board member. Boards love to have people who have business experience.

Pick a topic that interests you, and find a group or organization that shares your interest. That can be directly connected to your business or not. These organizations are looking for leaders like you. And the networking opportunities are endless. You’ll meet people you wouldn’t otherwise meet. You’ll connect with them in a joint effort that’s meaningful, which will help you form bonds you wouldn’t otherwise have. Whether you’re an introvert or an extrovert, there’s a place for you.

It’s really wise to expand your network beyond the obvious business connections. You just never know who can connect you to your next wonderful client or stream of income. We live in interesting times, as the Chinese proverb says, and it can be scary because we don’t know what’s coming. We can empower ourselves in times like this by remembering that everything, everything begins locally. It begins person to person on a local level. You can influence how things unfold at that level. And the ripple effect of all of us taking positive action means we can collectively influence the future for the better. So I invite you to be the change you wish to see in the world. Is this your year to step up?

You have the opportunity, as business leaders, to be contributors to meaningful and positive change. You have the opportunity to have an impact, perhaps on a bigger scale than you’re ever considered. I invite you to look outside your business and see the tremendous opportunities for yourself and your business. And even beyond that: for the community and the larger world.

You matter. What you do matters. And what you contribute is a gift to us all.
To your success…

E-Mail Marketing!!!

by Ray

EARLY DAYS

Before the invention of the email marketing, postal marketing was in boom. People used to write letters and send them to people. As it was the only way of transport, people had to wait for a very long time to receive a reply. But in 1971, Raymond Samuel Tomlinson implemented the first email program to overcome the difficulties involved in the postal system. He sent emails to around 400+ people and experienced a huge sale from it. Thanks to Tomlinson for inventing a unique program.

1991 – Birth of the Internet
Though the evolution of the internet began in the early 1950’s, it wasn’t that popular. But in 1991, CERN was the first company to publicize a paper known as World Wide Web. Thus, this is actually considered the “birth” of the internet.
2000 – Effective utilization of mobiles
Earlier, they had to send emails only via computers or desktops. But, with the increase in the utilization of mobiles, they took this as the main aspect and were successful in utilizing these mobiles for opening emails. In 2012, over 40% of users opened their emails via their smart phones. And now, no need to mention it also, every one of us has a smart phone and use it for various other purposes.
TODAY
Email marketing has been the most powerful tool in all the marketing campaigns. In fact, it is proven that 80% of your marketing success lies in these two words – “Email Marketing”. With this, they have also started using automation techniques to increase the click rates for the websites. In fact, they account for 80% increase in leads and 78% increase in conversions.
As email marketing is accompanied with the rise in technology, many marketing trends are booming today. Among them, we have tailored a few of them to help each individual marketer keep their brand stand high in this digital world.

1. Segmentation
Segmentation is a technique which is used to divide the B2B email lists into a section based on various parameters like demographics, age and many more. This can be done even at business level also. For doing this, there are so many automation tools available with which you can easily divide your mailing lists. Instead of creating separate emails for each segment, you can think of using dynamic emails which have the ability to perform all the tasks at one time. Use these emails and send them to thousands of people and experience the joy with the replies which your customers send.

2. Personalization
Personalization is nothing more tham sending emails to your customers. According to the survey, it is proven that personalized emails increase the revenue by 6 times (than what you were earning before). When this is the case, I guess every one of us should focus on sending these types of personalized emails. The more you send, the more likely that your customers see and the more likely you will get responses from them.

3. Customization
This is the most important thing that every marketer should know before starting their marketing campaigns. There are actually specific places where we have to put our brand logo, which color can impact on customers, and what kind of images should be used? Email customization plays an important role in attracting the customers. If you have an amazing email template and an attractive content, then this business is just made for you.

CONCLUSION

Email marketing is the life blood of the every marketer. This can be very beneficial and at the same time can bring huge loss also. Be careful with your marketing efforts and achieve success.
To your success…

If you are a regular user of Mozilla Firefox browser then you would have often seen windows that appear without your permission automatically.
