I’ve been in conflict this week. Big time. I’m hiring a new online marketing and life coach and because my previous multiple-experiences with online coaches have woefully under-delivered, I don’t want to let my past experiences taint the entire industry.
But there’s a further challenge … I’m out there in the online market place too. I’m offering products that I passionately believe will make a difference. And if others have had the same experience of feeling ‘duped’ as I have, how can they decide whether I’m a expert worth trusting?
HOW do we locate the sincerity among all the hot air? Here’s are my top 5 recommendations:
Do your research – don’t be afraid to get behind a long sales letter. They’re long because they have to deal with every objection the reader could possibly think of. But when you have a phone, Skype or face-to-face dialogue with a seller, you get a sense of the source. Ask them for more examples of how an individual truly went through a process. Ask what percentage of their students get the results they’re highlighting. You wouldn’t buy an offline purchase – a car, some curtains, a new iPhone – without all the answers. And what might work for the masses may not be your thing … so ask until you feel clear and confident.
Expect accountability – if the new juicer you buy isn’t juicing like it claimed it would – you take it back. Often you don’t want your money back, you want the value of what the product said it would bring to your life. So you ask the supplier to be accountable for the product they’re selling and either show you how to use it more effectively or NOT sell the juicer with these unfulfilled promises. It’s the SAME principle when you’re buying knowledge. If it’s not producing for you as it was sold – it’s right to challenge that.
Listen to your intuition – take time to look around a person’s website and check out their social media presence. If you sense a sincerity and authenticity, check out their credentials (like if there are testimonials on their sales letters, find that person on Facebook and ask them to share more detail). I’ve seen teeny glimpses of some online marketeers which have changed my instinct of them entirely – both ways.
Put your investment in context – ask yourself … More Info
As strange as it may sound, the best action in information technology recruitment today isn’t in a technical area, it’s actually a business related skill that gets paid the most attention. It’s the job of the IT business analyst that gets all the love today. This is an article by Business Consultants BusinessPort who are based in Aberdeen and London – please take a few moments to chekc out their website at www.businessport.net
As unhappy a situation as it may seem to the technically qualified people who used to control most IT stuff in any business, it’s well-documented today that the IT business analyst has far better hiring prospects to look forward to than any other area of employment in the field. In the year 2014, only 13% of businesses said they planned to hire a IT business analyst soon. This year, about 25% say this. What other area of employment can claim figures such as these? Money Magazine agrees too. It’s one of the top 12 jobs in IT. The median salary for a job of this kind is £80000 a year, and that’s something like 1% better than what it was last year.
Not that real technology jobs are not hiring or that they don’t pay well. Web developers and programmers do have great prospects. In fact, those jobs have made it on the list by Money Magazine too. It’s just that the job of the IT business analyst is the only one to be seen as a critical and essential one. Everyone’s surprised to suddenly see this.
What could have happened that this area of expertise should suddenly break out now? Well, the experts feel that there are changes that have happened in the world of information technology that just make the IT business analyst’s job quite necessary. Software and hardware is designed to be intuitive to use these days. Businesses don’t really need IT expertise as much as they once did. Implementing hardware and software isn’t that difficult. What they do need is expertise that tells them which direction to head in that’s good for the business. Technology is everywhere now and it’s always changing. They do need experts who can advise them on what is best for the business. That’s where the IT business analyst comes in.
These are the people who help the management really understand and make effective use of the corporate IT … More Info

E-commerce website design isn’t something you can really bring a lot of innovation to. No matter what e-commerce website you go to, Amazon or a website run by a 12-year-old girl to sell pencil erasers, you basically have your list of products, your shopping cart and your checkout page. There isn’t a lot of room here for innovation. The fact that it’s all the same doesn’t make it any easier on website designers or SEO professionals though. There is still a lot of expertise that goes into making an e-commerce website run smoothly. And success here depends a great deal on how well an SEO professional working on a website knows his search marketing. Here are the basic principles of what makes an e-commerce website design really successful. As with most things, as simple as these principles are, very few websites actually follow them. If you do it, you could virtually guarantee yourself some success.
As far as successful e-commerce website design is concerned, the product details pages are the meat and potatoes of the whole affair. This is where every visitor to your website heads, for information and to decide on whether or not they wish to click on the Buy button. For search engines, both internal and external, product pages happen to be the most important thing to pay attention to. With branded products, an SEO professional who takes his job seriously can easily optimize everything by product name, model number, SKU, product size, and so on. What this means is, if there is an Internet shopper looking on Google for a specific brand or model of product, your e-commerce webpage needs to be set up to draw in such a searcher.
Everything needs to be set up and optimized so that people searching on Google by name for a product you list find it right away. To do this, make sure that every single detail on your product details pages is superbly optimized. Make the perfect template for your product pages and use that for every product that you list. So what goes into that product template?
To begin with, you want to be completely certain about the way the name of the product appears on the page; you want to make sure that the <title> tag is perfect and that the two go together. You want to make sure that every single letter and character that … More Info
