Cashing in on Your Facebook Network - How to Turn Friends Into Customers

It’s easy to fill your Facebook friends list with folks who might be considering what your company offers. You can join groups catering to your target audience and connect with folks there. But once you’re friends, how do you contact they will and get a conversation going so you can check if they want that which you offer?

When you add someone like a friend you need to leave them an email that prompts them to write you back, just make sure make it happen you will still only get maybe 2~3 from ten individuals to write to you. People get so many friend requests which they tend to just accept every request they get and ignore messages.

Most notes people write to you after they give you a friend request are generic so most people usually ignore them, then when somebody ignores your message you need to try to call your new friends as they are a possible customer. Here’s the way to accomplish that.

Once somebody will be your friend, they’ll make an appearance in this “recently added” list through your “friends” tab. What you can do from this point is to select somebody’s name, and send them a communication. You want to be capable of copy and paste a quick message to them like the one that I use: “Good to possess you as a friend, (name)! I don’t think I know you personally. Tell me something interesting about yourself. What is it that you simply do?”

Now my whole purpose in sending this message is usually to turn them into my customer, but I don’t wish to go blabbing about my company straight away. You won’t get any response this way.

With a quick personal message this way I can make contact with a couple of …

Do you want to be an entrepreneur?

Do you want to be an entrepreneur?

Nobody said that being an entrepreneur was easy. Anyone who has started his own business will tell you that it can be an activity that consumes all that will demand a lot from you but will also reward with more than financial success.

Success in business ventures is the result of many factors such as knowledge, perseverance, passion, good plans. It is estimated that every year more than 60% of businesses fail. So, if you are thinking of becoming an entrepreneur then you might be advised to think about it many times before plunging.

The road to success is long and has many phases that every novice entrepreneur needs to understand. If ignored at the beginning of every business then any business will surely fail very early. These business phases can vary from industry to industry, but one of the most important phases is market research. Although this may seem like a very logical step, it is often ignored. Market research helps in determining your market and understanding it fully.

Often, when starting, entrepreneurs are too consumed by passion and emotion to be able to carry out impartial studies of the feasibility of their products or services. If done initially, many aspiring entrepreneurs can save themselves from failure. Most business plans cannot withstand market research supervision and fail even when on the drawing board.

To be successful in any market, you need to understand market history, demographics, economic conditions and current trends. You also need to study competitors who are already well established in the market. Studying them will help you find your target audience and niche.

Many times, people overestimate the value or novelty of their product / service. This gives them false confidence promoting them to make irrational decisions and take big risks.

There may be other businesses …

Sales Of Goods Act Educational Comparison – Business Link Vs Wikipedia In 2019

Sales Of Goods Act Comparison

This is a personal comparison study between Business Link and Wikipedia’s view on the Sales of Goods Act in the UK. This is just an educational comparison and no legal meaning is meant by this discussion.

From reading over the 2 Sales of Goods acts from the two sources, the first opinion on them both is that Business Link’s act is more positive for the end consumer, it is pointed more towards the options that consumers have when/if anything goes wrong with a sale. It includes additional information about Services that are provided apart from just a physical product. Whereas Wikipedia’s version is more purely process based with not much information regarding services. They put across that they do not believe the Goods Act is as good as they would like, saying: “a new sales of goods act is thought to be overdue”. If a consumer reads this act, it may make them feel that the Act is flawed if it is put across like this.

Sales Of Goods Act Educational Comparison - Business Link Vs Wikipedia In 2019

Carrying on with Wikipedia, who states there is “a minimal amount of minor restrictions” could mean that Consumers and Businesses are in need of a new detailed Act to cover more events that occur within the selling of goods. Wikipedia explains information more about the actual sales process, rather than the actual product. Including details about the ownership of the goods and possession, that the seller must hold the full ownership of a product to be able to sell it, this keeps the consumer free from events when a 3rd party who has security on the same product interferes with the sale or the consumer. This includes the ownership transfer occurring only when the goods have been delivered as advertised, not when any monies have been passed from the …

SEO In The Post Google Panda Age – Adapt Or PERISH

SEO In The Post Google Panda Age – Adapt Or PERISH

Search engine optimization (SEO) is not an exact science, and many of the so called gurus tend to make it sound a lot more complicated than it really is. A combination of on-page and off-page factors are responsible for the ranking of a website in the search engines. Google is the largest on the search engine companies and really does have the lions share of the market, claiming around 90% of the search traffic, with Yahoo and Bing as the second and third place companies, but only getting a small percentage of the searches.

There is little doubt that during 2011 the landscape has changed for search, and websites and article directories have been hot very hard by updates, in particular the Panda updates that Google have rolled out in the last few months. The issue seems to be one of thin content, content and sites that are only online purely for the monetization potential, and not offering a user experience that Google has chose to define. While this quality user experience may be tricky for us mere mortals to define, the SEO strategies do not need to change dramatically, but as SEO professionals, we need to implement additional measures to allow ourselves to remain competitive.

Good content, with keywords in title, description, title tags, and liberally sprinkled throughout the content are still relevant. Alt text for images is still a good idea. The use of latent semantic indexing (LSI) to them your content is still a good strategy. Internal link structures and good site navigation are essential to offering a good user experience.

Off page strategies like link building are important. Sure, we have all ranked pages with no links, but the inbound links certainly help to increase the perception of value of the page in the eyes of …
