Essentials Of Wholesale Dropshipping Business - Tips

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

With the proliferation of World Wide Web, the spectrum and method of doing wholesale business has changed drastically over the past few decades. You can now start doing business without having to pre-purchase or stock any goods. All that needs to be done is to merely list products along with descriptions and graphics on the website of a B2B trade portal.

The secret of success lies in finding the right portal that has built its name and is well-known throughout the world of business for its extensive coverage of buyers and sellers. It would also be necessary to display the products of the wholesale business in an attractive manner with all pertinent information, prices, terms of business and graphics.

Basics of Wholesale Dropshipping Business

The essence of Dropshipping business is that you have to do some research and find products that would have a ready market and then find reliable dropshipping suppliers who would supply the goods against your orders promptly and without any complaints from your clients. You can only succeed if you can find saleable products and the relevant suppliers who will not let you down. Having done this exercise and having selected the right online trade portal, the products should be listed on that website in a proper manner.

You can then pass on the orders that are received, to the wholesale suppliers and ensure that the shipment is made on time. The website listing your products will receive the payment from the customer and will pass on the same to you after adjusting its charges. The payment to the wholesale supplier can be made thereafter.

Fighting Competition

It is obvious that since this business appears to be so simple, many people will be in the fray to capture the market. Competition will be fierce and you will have to find innovative means to fight the same for survival. The following tips will help in being successful in combating your competitors.

• The more attractive and informative your description of the product, the greater will be the possibility of impulsive purchases. It is essential that the information provided by you is persuasively descriptive.

• The description should be accompanied with attractive graphics and good quality photos of the products in actual use. It would also be a good idea to provide comparisons with other similar products. This will enable the visitor to the site to compare different products and make up his mind while he is still hooked on to your site. This will also prevent him from browsing and visiting other sites and ultimately it will improve your chances of getting the business.

• Offering a bonus with the product will prove to be very effective. The bonus could be in the form of reports containing interesting information and tips regarding use of the product.

• Once your client enters his/her credit card information and before the deal is closed, other products can also be recommended. If the wholesale order is for an electronic item, you can recommend related accessories.

Finding Good Wholesale Dropshipping Suppliers$$$

If a reseller wants to have a smooth and profitable business operation, the most important thing is to find a good dropshipper. He will have no problems or hassles regarding delivery of goods, recovery of payments, and maintaining good quality of the products in line with what has been shown to the customer when the order was finalized. A drop-shipping list can provide names, addresses and telephone numbers of hundreds of companies but most of the time, these lists are outdated. As such, it is better to register with a website that has lists of itemized suppliers and make a choice. You can also become a member of wholesalers’ forums which will make it possible to get useful information by way of other people’s experiences and recommendations regarding reliable suppliers.

Wholesale dropship directories can also be consulted...

Wholesale dropship business can be profitable if proper research and homework is done in the beginning to find the right product and the right wholesale supplier.

9 things you didn’t know about the life of Steve Jobs...

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |




For all of his years in the spotlight at the helm of Apple, Steve Jobs in many ways remains an inscrutable figure — even in his death. Fiercely private, Jobs concealed most specifics about his personal life, from his curious family life to the details of his battle... with pancreatic cancer — a disease that ultimately claimed him on Wednesday, at the age of 56.

While the CEO and co-founder of Apple steered most interviews away from the public fascination with his private life, there's plenty we know about Jobs the person, beyond the Mac and the iPhone. If anything, the obscure details of his interior life paint a subtler, more nuanced portrait of how one of the finest technology minds of our time grew into the dynamo that we remember him as today.




1. Early life and childhood
Jobs was born in San Francisco on February 24, 1955. He was adopted shortly after his birth and reared near Mountain View, California by a couple named Clara and Paul Jobs. His adoptive father — a term that Jobs openly objected to — was a machinist for a laser company and his mother worked as an accountant.

Later in life, Jobs discovered the identities of his estranged parents. His birth mother, Joanne Simpson, was a graduate student at the time and later a speech pathologist; his biological father, Abdulfattah John Jandali, was a Syrian Muslim who left the country at age 18 and reportedly now serves as the vice president of a Reno, Nevada casino. While Jobs reconnected with Simpson in later years, he and his biological father remained estranged.

2. College dropout
The lead mind behind the most successful company on the planet never graduated from college, in fact, he didn't even get close. After graduating from high school in Cupertino, California — a town now synonymous with 1 Infinite Loop, Apple's headquarters — Jobs enrolled in Reed College in 1972. Jobs stayed at Reed (a liberal arts university in Portland, Oregon) for only one semester, dropping out quickly due to the financial burden the private school's steep tuition placed on his parents.

In his famous 2005 commencement speech to Stanford University, Jobs said of his time at Reed: "It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5 cent deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the seven miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple."

3. Fibbed to his Apple...,, co-founder about a job at Atari
Jobs is well known for his innovations in personal computing, mobile tech, and software, but he also helped create one of the best known video games of all-time. In 1975, Jobs was tapped by Atari to work on the Pong-like game Breakout.

He was reportedly offered $750 for his development work, with the possibility of an extra $100 for each chip eliminated from the game's final design. Jobs recruited Steve Wozniak (later one of Apple's other founders) to help him with the challenge. Wozniak managed to whittle the prototype's design down so much that Atari paid out a $5,000 bonus — but Jobs kept the bonus for himself, and paid his unsuspecting friend only $375, according to Wozniak's own autobiography.

4. The wife he leaves behind
Like the rest of his family life, Jobs kept his marriage out of the public eye. Thinking back on his legacy conjures images of him commanding the stage in his trademark black turtleneck and jeans, and those solo moments are his most iconic. But at home in Palo Alto, Jobs was raising a family with his wife, Laurene, an entrepreneur who attended the University of Pennsylvania's prestigious Wharton business school and later received her MBA at Stanford, where she first met her future husband.

For all of his single-minded dedication to the company he built from the ground up, Jobs actually skipped a meeting to take Laurene on their first date: "I was in the parking lot with the key in the car, and I thought to myself, 'If this is my last night on earth, would I rather spend it at a business meeting or with this woman?' I ran across the parking lot, asked her if she'd have dinner with me. She said yes, we walked into town and we've been together ever since."

In 1991, Jobs and Powell were married in the Ahwahnee Hotel at Yosemite National Park, and the marriage was officiated by Kobin Chino, a Zen Buddhist monk.

5. His sister is a famous author
Later in his life, Jobs crossed paths with his biological sister while seeking the identity of his birth parents. His sister, Mona Simpson (born Mona Jandali), is the well-known author of Anywhere But Here — a story about a mother and daughter that was later adapted into a film starring Natalie Portman and Susan Sarandon.

After reuniting, Jobs and Simpson developed a close relationship. Of his sister, he told a New York Times interviewer: "We're family. She's one of my best friends in the world. I call her and talk to her every couple of days.'' Anywhere But Here is dedicated to "my brother Steve."

6. Celebrity romances
In The Second Coming of Steve Jobs, an unauthorized biography, a friend from Reed reveals that Jobs had a brief fling with folk singer Joan Baez. Baez confirmed the the two were close "briefly," though her romantic connection with Bob Dylan is much better known (Dylan was the Apple icon's favorite musician). The biography also notes that Jobs went out with actress Diane Keaton briefly.

7. His first daughter
When he was 23, Jobs and his high school girlfriend Chris Ann Brennan conceived a daughter, Lisa Brennan Jobs. She was born in 1978, just as Apple began picking up steam in the tech world. He and Brennan never married, and Jobs reportedly denied paternity for some time, going as far as stating that he was sterile in court documents. He went on to father three more children with Laurene Powell. After later mending their relationship, Jobs paid for his first daughter's education at Harvard. She graduated in 2000 and now works as a magazine writer.

8. Alternative lifestyle
In a few interviews, Jobs hinted at his early experience with the psychedelic drug LSD. Of Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Jobs said: "I wish him the best, I really do. I just think he and Microsoft are a bit narrow. He'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger."

The connection has enough weight that Albert Hofmann, the Swiss scientist who first synthesized (and took) LSD, appealed to Jobs for funding for research about the drug's therapeutic use.

In a book interview, Jobs called his experience with the drug "one of the two or three most important things I have done in my life." As Jobs himself has suggested, LSD may have contributed to the "think different" approach that still puts Apple's designs a head above the competition.

Jobs will forever be a visionary, and his personal life also reflects the forward-thinking, alternative approach that vaulted Apple to success. During a trip to India, Jobs visited a well-known ashram and returned to the U.S. as a Zen Buddhist.

Jobs was also a pescetarian who didn't consume most animal products, and didn't eat meat other than fish. A strong believer in Eastern medicine, he sought to treat his own cancer through alternative approaches and specialized diets before reluctantly seeking his first surgery for a cancerous tumor in 2004.

9. His fortune
As the CEO of the world's most valuable brand, Jobs pulled in a comically low annual salary of just $1. While the gesture isn't unheard of in the corporate world — Google's Larry Page, Sergey Brin, and Eric Schmidt all pocketed the same 100 penny salary annually — Jobs has kept his salary at $1 since 1997, the year he became Apple's lead executive. Of his salary, Jobs joked in 2007: "I get 50 cents a year for showing up, and the other 50 cents is based on my performance."

In early 2011, Jobs owned 5.5 million shares of Apple. After his death, Apple shares were valued at $377.64 — a roughly 43-fold growth in valuation over the last 10 years that shows no signs of slowing down.

He may only have taken in a single dollar per year, but Jobs leaves behind a vast fortune. The largest chunk of that wealth is the roughly $7 billion from the sale of Pixar to Disney in 2006. In 2011, with an estimated net worth of $8.3 billion, he was the 110th richest person in the world, according to Forbes. If Jobs hadn't sold his shares upon leaving Apple in 1985 (before returning to the company in 1996), he would be the world's fifth richest individual.

While there's no word yet on plans for his estate, Jobs leaves behind three children from his marriage to Laurene Jobs (Reed, Erin, and Eve), as well as his first daughter, Lisa Brennan-Jobs.

Top 5 mistakes when getting home equity....

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

Rates have historically never been better, so nowadays the temptation to borrow against your home equity is very strong. However, many homeowners unknowingly make costly mistakes.

Here are the top 5 mistakes people make when applying for a home equity loan.

Mistake #1 - Not Knowing The Difference between a Home Equity Loan and a Home Equity Line of Credit

A home equity loan is a one-time transaction that allows you to draw out all the funds available.

A home equity line of credit (HELOC) is open; you can choose a small initial advance against the full amount of the line; then reuse the line of credit as often as you want during the period that the line is open. Your monthly payment is based on the outstanding balance.

A general rule of thumb is: use a home equity loan when you need all the money up front; such as cash for home improvements, debt consolidation, or a large one-time purchase.

If you need ongoing access to cash and revolving credit a HELOC may be your best choice.

Mistake # 2 - Taking a Home Equity Loan When You Plan on Refinancing Your First Mortgage

Many mortgage companies look at the combined loan amounts (i.e., the sum of the first and second loans) even when you are refinancing only your first loan. If you plan on refinancing your first loan the lender may require you to pay off both your first and second mortgages; or close your home equity line completely.

Check with your mortgage company to see if having a second loan will cause your refinance to be turned down.

Mistake # 3 - Not Knowing The Hidden Costs

If you feel you must take out a home equity loan or open a line of credit it is important to know ALL the costs. With any loan secured against your property there can be hefty insurance costs, appraisals and other fees that can cut into your loan amount.

Mistake# 4 - Only Applying at Your Current Bank

Many consumers apply for their home equity loan from their home bank. This can be a costly mistake.

As in any other type of loan, be sure to shop around for the best deal. Your current bank may not be able to give you the best interest rate or the best terms.

Think twice before deciding to use your local bank; you may find that there is another lender out there that can offer you a substantially more attractive loan program.

Mistake # 5 - Not Checking Your Credit First

As in any type of loan, it is imperative that you get the best rates and terms. However, if you have credit problems it will seriously affect your ability to qualify.

In fact, if your credit is not the greatest you may have no choice but to use alternative lenders specializing in hard to place loans. The solution: Make sure you go with the bank or lender that provides the best rates for your type of credit whether good or bad.

There you have it. Avoid these 5 mistakes and you could save yourself hundreds... if not thousands of dollars when you get a home equity loan.

Authenticity - Why people arent themselves and what that costs them

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

Why should you be yourself? The simple answer is 'because everyone else is taken' - it's both the simple answer and an accurate answer. The important question is 'why are we not ourselves?' What is the pay off for not being ourselves? Ahhh, now we're talking.

To begin with, what would cause us to not want to be ourselves? For some of us, we may have been raised in environments where it was dangerous to be who we are. Even as adults we may be working in environments that demand that we be other than who we are in order to ensure job security. So we conclude, I have to be other than I am to get what I want i.e. love, safety, income etc.

We may have learned to believe 'who I am is not good enough to be loved, guaranteed safety, approved of'. We may have been told 'who you are is not worth treating well'. We may have learned 'who you are is not good enough to meet my standards for 'being good enough'. We may become convinced that we are less than we should be.

When we feel not good enough what happens to our lives? We end up putting things on hold until we feel we 'deserve' by becoming good enough. We spend so much time striving to feel that we're good enough. Have I accomplished enough, am I good looking enough, is my car big/fast/exclusive enough, is my job title high enough, do I have enough awards to be good enough? Exhausting isn't it?

Self worth and authenticity are intrinsically linked. The worth we have in our own eyes, a sense of worth not built on acquisition, job title, appearance, credentials - is the only worth, worth living out of. How many of us realise that we have an intrinsic worth greater than anything on the outside? If we go through life with a sense of being deficient then we are motivated to acquire value - the things that others value in the world then become our aim in life. I may not be good enough in and of myself but look what I've got, becomes our calling card.

Sooner or later, things fall apart, if we're lucky. It can take many forms e.g we can lose everything we spent our whole lives accruing or we meet someone or a situation who places no value on our 'social bling'. We run helter skelter trying to get them to 'see' us as our bling or we go somewhere else. But there's a crack in the tea cup. When it finally breaks open, our break down becomes our breakthrough.

We begin to look for another way. What we've been looking for is a way to feel good about who we are, under all circumstance. We don't always realise it at first since there's much howling in pain and hanging onto fast disappearing 'bling'.

The breakthrough cracks us wide open and everything we've been taught is 'wrong' with us, all the things we've been taught make us 'not good enough' stare us in the face. Excruciating at first but if we stay, refuse to take flight, we can transform. Now begins the re-acquainting ourselves with the 'real' us, all of it.

There are many transformation technologies from journaling, meditation, prayer, walking, body work, sound, vibrational healing. We tend to gravitate towards one that works for us. Soon the pain subsides,.. loses its edge. We don't feel so raw. Our lives may be in shambles around us but we can stand to be alive and increasingly we can stand to be ourselves. We live in a time of infinite help with wonderful teachers who can assist us in moving out of our debris; emotional, psychological and spiritual.

Not being who we are, may be something we picked up at our beginning but was never a part of our being and we need not continue with it.

Mobile Phone Reviews- BlackBerry 8900 Review

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

Smaller than the Bold, but the packaging for many features, the BlackBerry Curve 8900 is one of our favorite all-time BlackBerries. The ideal is of medium size, with a QWERTY keyboard and a bright, high resolution, it is an almost perfect device for mobile email. Other key features include a 3 megapixel camera with autofocus, video camera, a music player, GPS, a large capacity battery, Wi-Fi, and plenty of memory. The only important thing missing is 3G.

The BlackBerry 8900 is the latest BlackBerry Curve series, and is one of the best ever BlackBerries. Its name suggests that the grooves of the BlackBerry range just below the BlackBerry Bold, but despite its lack of 3G, its still a bit better than the Bold.

Like others in the series Curve, the 8900 has a full QWERTY keyboard 35-key keyboard with trackball. It looks almost identical to the Bold, except it is smaller and lighter, which on the same weight as many standard phones, and compact enough to fit easily into a jacket pocket or even in the jeans pocket . This fact alone device becomes more common for age curves or bold.

Before beginning our analysis, let's take a moment to admire the ergonomics and the construction of 8900. Unboxing the 8900, you can not help but admire the quality of construction of the device - it just feels so solid and well built. Unlike many phones, taking the back to insert the SIM card and battery is so easy. The keys are really small, but they move crisply and anyone with fingers on the normal size range for Homo Sapiens should have no problem with them at all. You can even use it without help. The scroll wheel is the same as with previous blackberries - some love it, others are less enthusiastic. We're not 100% in favor of the scroll wheel, but does the job.

Let's move on to the next screen. It's huge! At 2.44 inches wide and a resolution of 480 x 360 pixels, this is just the type of display you need to read e-mails or surf the web (much less for viewing photos or watching videos.) In this screen matches with the 3G iPhone is just ahead of anything else in existence. The menus are very simple too, and once I got used to the scroll wheel and the total size of the device, you will find that 8900 is the phone almost perfect, ergonomically speaking. For us, it's the closest I ever BlackBerry have reached perfection. Just a little more work in the menus and a scroll wheel smoother, and 100%.

Now, of course, the key selling point of a BlackBerry e-mail is in motion, and the 8900 does not disappoint. There is little difference here with previous BlackBerries, so we'll just reiterate that the BlackBerry mobile email is the best in the business. It is compatible with virtually all standard mail. It also supports attachments, with a viewer and editor for Microsoft Office documents. Combining this with the large display and QWERTY keyboard means you get the best mobile email experience available. It is also a great environment for text messaging.

But the 8900 is much more than mobile messaging. On the one hand, has the best camera to appear on any BlackBerry to date. With 3.2 megapixels, LED flash and autofocus, it is the same quality as the camera on the BlackBerry Storm, and even the chamber of the Bold. It may not be a replacement for the 8-megapixel digital camera, but they produce excellent print quality images, and is a welcome addition. This marks one more way that the curve for 8900 is almost a conventional telephone. The phone has a media player too, of course, and with features like playlists, shuffle and organization by the artist and album, is a very useful MP3 player. It is very strong too! The headphone jack 3. 5 mm allows you to connect any compatible headset, as always. You can also use a stereo Bluetooth headset, if you prefer. With a 1GB microSD card provides as part of the sales package, and the possibility of extending this 16 GB, it will not be short of storage for music or videos. The video player works well too, with support for DivX and XviD, and flicker-free playback of high quality LCD screen. Even there are five games included (from Sudoku to BrickBreaker), although he reached the round of testing of these (all work can not be played on mobile phones in the UK!) There are also built in GPS, so you can find its current location, and this can be used with BlackBerry Maps.

The 8900 has a full range of connectivity options, including Bluetooth 2.0 with EDR, USB and WiFi. The WiFi connection is very easy to configure, and allows access to email, web, or data on your PC. This is probably the best way to use the built-in web browser.

The 8900 has a huge heavy-duty battery, contributing to their weight significantly, but gives much staying power, even with heavy use. It can be recharged from the mains or via a USB cable from your PC.

The 8900 is a quad-band phone, meaning it can be used worldwide, and the utility that comes with an international charger too, so do not worry about forgetting to take your travel package. But the feature that is very obvious thing missing is 3G. The Bold has 3G, the storm has 3G, why not the 8900? To some this may be a show stopper, and surely is a shame to have to rely on 2G data transfer with this powerful device.

Finally, it is worth noting just what a crushing device is curve 8900. Besides the quality of physical construction, the coefficient is very high, with 8900 being the latest in a mature evolution of business devices. Unlike some competitors, there is very little about the 8900 with a "beta" feeling. Nice features include the wide range of ringtones and alerts (audio and visual), the richness of the status indicators on the screen (for example, missed calls, messages without opening, connection status, and alerts calendar.)

This is definitely one of our favorite all-time BlackBerries. The 8900 is really a multimedia device and can be done at a single point for communication, music, media, photography, web browsing and GPS too. Oh, if only had 3G! Apart from the lack of 3G, this really is the best BlackBerry ever.

Dear Chronically Pissed off Entrepreneur,

If you've been going from guru to guru learning methods to be the 'next big thing'; When you've been downloading e-book after book trying to unravel the 'secret key to the Vault of Success'; Should you've been attending seminar after seminar and studying tons of books till you encounter Brainfreeze trying to decipher what makes profitable individuals successful ... ...

You are not alone!

I have been there before and I know how irritating it feels to spend countless sleepness nights making an attempt to be taught the trail to success from the truckloads of success gurus out there. I've attended numerous seminars, learn countless books on success and downloaded numerous ebooks that are now gathering digital dust on my hard drive. I understand how you are feeling right now.

You see my pal, success isn't just about arduous work. It is about working onerous and working smart.

At one point in time, I used to be also feeling really down within the dumps as it did not appear as if I used to be getting wherever nearer to the 'promised land' of the moolah. I used to be pretty much at my wit's end and was consistently pulling my hair out in persistent frustration.

Then I found the lacking link. I discovered that to change into successful, it's good to model a profitable person. The age-outdated adage that 'Success breeds Success' is absolutely true!

'Yah ... Huge deal ... I already knew that'

I can literally hear numerous you having that above thought going by means of your head whilst you are reading this.

Let me clarify what I mean. Many people, including myself in the past, thought that attending seminars and reading books on success is already modelling. But most individuals do not realise which you can't effectively model a profitable individual just by attending his seminars or reading his books! The only effective, time-examined and confirmed way to mannequin a profitable person is to observe him around as he conducts his day-to-day dealings and have constant, thorough entry to his time, steerage and knowledge.

Sounds easy enough right? But there's just one tiny little catch ...

Most successful people charge the sky for his or her time, coaching and guidance. And even then, it's possible you'll not get dedicated time and access to them! The high price of this teaching and guidance is often enough to make most people reconsider the investment within the guru's time.

I suppose I used to be a bit of luckier on this aspect. On account of my enterprise dealings and my sincere desire to learn from the most effective, I was in a position to community with and be directly mentored by two businessmen who are already successful in their own right.

One was a very enterprising younger businessman who arrange an organization proper from scratch in Sunny Singapore. In lower than 5 years, this firm grossed more than USD 60 million in gross sales and was in a position to expand to more than 10 international locations across the Asia Pacific region. He plans to checklist his firm on the Singapore Stock Trade in 2007 and he even has his sights set on the New York Inventory Trade in 2010. He has been honoured in numerous countries for his contribution to the business climate and folks of these countries.

My second mentor comes from a wholly different background. At present in his mid-40s, he was already comfortably retired because of his astute business acumen and succesful company skills. He hails from the Banking industry and on the very young age of 29, he was already the CEO of an American Bank. In his company profession till date, he has introduced no less than 36 companies to a Public Listing on numerous Inventory Exchanges throughout the world. Evidently, he was already a multi-millionaire by the point he was in his late 30s.

Being able to be instantly mentored and guided by these two successful businessmen has opened my eyes to the tightly-guarded world of extremely-profitable businessmen. I used to be able to find out how they think, strategize and react to various enterprise situations ... I was in a position to observe them as they went about closing business deals with ease. I was literally capable of tap into their sensible minds to be taught the coveted matter of success. Even better, by my mentors, I was capable of meet and study from other extremely-successful millionaires.

My conclusion?

Nothing beats being able to learn in actual-time and in the actual world from extremely-profitable people. I lastly understood the immense benefits Napolean Hill (creator of the timeless success traditional Suppose and Develop Wealthy) had when he interviewed 504 profitable people.

From all of the information I've been fortunate sufficient to assemble and learn from my mentors and their enterprise companions, I've distilled every little thing into bite-sized chunks of information and knowledge. I've taken pains to put together all these information right into a easy, clear and concise format that everybody will have the ability to understand. Better of all, where doable, I additionally embody motion steps that one can take to propel him to the next degree of success.

'However Terence? Why are you doing all these? Is there a catch to it? Is all these data free of charge?'

For thoses of you who could also be questioning why I'm taking the hassle to compile all these data, my reply is simple. I was lucky enough to be able to study from extremely-successful people. And all these knowledge was gained with out me investing a single dollar. My mentors simply charge 1000's of dollars per hour for his or her business consultation. I can not however stress the worth of all the information they've shared with me. I know of many out there who wish to discover ways to be extra profitable however might not have the monetary means to attend seminars or spend money on self-enchancment books. I need to make what I time period as Success Data accessible to anyone and everybody who needs to make a distinction in their lives. I need everybody to have the ability to use this knowledge to prosper and achieve their dreams. Name me idealistic however I believe the extra people change into profitable, the better the world we dwell in will become.

And yes, all these information will be made available for

F-R-E-E

After studying what I might be posting within the coming days and weeks, some folks will cry foul at why I'm making out there such jealously-guarded, ground-breaking and cash-making data for free. Armed with such powerful information, you will start attracting wealth like a ten ton magnet!

Do not ask me to put a worth to this data I am about to share with you. There isn't a worth to success ... And no, I do not intend to cost anything for this knowledge. I imagine in making the world a better place and these articles are my contribution in the direction of this cause.

It's my sincerest want that everyone who reads my articles take no matter information I am about to offer and go forth to prosper.

5 Key Ways to Engage your Facebook Business Page Fans

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

We’ve all heard that if you are in business, you need to have a Facebook Business page or Fan page.

Now that you’ve gone ahead and built your Facebook fan page, what’s the next step?

If you build it they will come… or will they?

If you now do nothing with your Facebook page, it will do nothing for you. Congratulations, you have a cyber-slug!

If you don’t have the time to spend keeping your page updated, or you don’t have the cash in your business to pay someone else to keep your page updated, you are wasting your time. It’s that simple.

We’re a fickle crowd. If you are not keeping your page current and populated with new and interesting bits and pieces to read, you won’t be top of mind with those that have liked your page.

Without posting on your wall, your fans are not seeing your page in their newsfeed. Your fans will have to remember to find and revisit your page. They won’t.

When was the last time you actively visited a page on Facebook purely because you thought of it?

Or did you see a post or comment in your newsfeed from a friend that caught your eye and you clicked through to find out more.

My guess is option 2. Most of us operate that way. We see what others are doing or talking about and then go and have a look see.

With that in mind, how can you apply the browsing habits of most online users to your Facebook page strategy to ensure people continue to visit your page?

1. Post 2 to 3 times per week

Yes, per week. Be on your wall posting articles, comments, questions, videos, photos, etc at least 2 to 3 times per week to keep your page fans engaged.

If you are not talking to your page visitors, someone else will be.

2. Post at different times of the day / different days of the week

Unless you know exactly when your page fans are online, make an effort to post at different times of the day and also, post on different days of the week.

By posting at different times of the day, you can make sure you are appearing in the newsfeed of your fans at differing times. People are online at different times of the day. Some like to early morning browse. Some jump online after lunch. Others do a quick catch up on what’s happening at dinner time or when they’ve finally put the kids to bed and have a few moments to themselves.

Likewise, some people are more active on weekdays. Others browse on the weekend when things have slowed down at work.

Know when your target market is online and post specifically to tap into their peak browsing times.

3. Repost your content

It’s perfectly fine to write one single article and post the same article to your wall 2 or 3 times. Just make sure you spread out the time between the posting.

For example, you may post an article at the start of the month and repost it at the end of the month. Why? No one can possibly be on Facebook 24 hours a day. There will be fans that would love to read your content but were not online when you first posted it.

Reposting gives people the chance to catch it on the second time around.

4. Post Content from other Sources

Be seen as in information disseminator. As well as sharing your own information, source material that you know will appeal to your target market.

If you read an article that was helpful to you in business, chances are, it will also benefit others. So share it.

Your Facebook page visitors will appreciate the gesture and may even “on-share” it, citing you as the reference point where they found it.

This is where the ability to tag in Facebook can be really useful. An article you found and posted can easily be shared as a link by someone else, with a tag to your page as a thank you for sharing. Win-win!

5. Respond to Comments or Questions

If someone posts a question or a comment on your page, reply. Sounds simple, but I’m amazed how many people don’t even bother to visit their own page to see what is happening on the wall.

Engaging with your visitors is an ideal way to establish rapport and build up a following of loyal fans who will love to hear from you.

If you do this, chances are next time they have a question in your field of expertise, they’ll ask you. Their friends will also see that they’ve posted on your Facebook business page wall and some will click through to see why.

Why Did you Build a Facebook Business Page?

Your aim when building a Facebook business page should be to generate traffic to your page, as a source of potential leads, clients and customers.

Your challenge is to keep them interested when they get there. Keep them engaged. Keep them coming back.

That way they’ll see you as the expert and seek your advice and opinion when they have an issue to solve or question to ask.

Learning How To Improve Your Memory Information

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

Have you experienced the embarrassment of forgetting a family member's birthday or an important assignment? Are you in school and are finding it toilsome to study successfully for exams and tests? It's not just you! Thousands and thousands of individuals out there have the same challenge, and it doesn't just affect senior citizens. In school, they never teach you improve your memory information, or the time-tested strategies for successful memorization.

Your brain is a very able piece of machinery. The organ collects data and thoughts, and then categorizes and stores them. For the information in the brain to be used beneficially, it must be available for quick retrieval. One such case of quick recall would be answering a question like, "how old are you," or "what is your address?" How many of you have searched high and low for a pair of eyeglasses, and found them right on your head? Maybe you have forgotten something more important like a project at work, or a homework assignment. The good news is that you don't have to keep worrying about your memory. Regardless of age or ability, there are lots of things you can do to exercise, and improve the performance of your memory.

Sometimes the best "improve your memory information" can be found by asking someone who's got a lot of experience under her belt. My grandmother used to tell me about an old trick to help remind myself of something I had to remember. The technique is to tie a piece of yarn on your finger, or put some tape on your hand to serve as a reminder that you had to remember to do something. Since the string or tape is out of the ordinary, it will help you remember what you were supposed to do. You could tie a string on your thumb, wear your watch upside down, or even set an alarm on your mobile phone. The secret is to mix up your normal environment just enough to tune you in to the fact that something is wrong and you have something to remember.

You can also try creating a picture to help improve the effectiveness of your memory. The easiest way to accomplish this is to create a scene in your mind of what you are trying to remember. In my language learning hobby, I have found this technique very effective in learning new vocabulary. This is how it works. "Potato," in the German language, is pronounced cart-awfol, which is in no way like to the word potato in English. Try to form the following image in your mind. You're shopping for groceries at a store in Berlin and see a gigantic cart of rotten potatoes. Your buddy exclaims, "That is a cart of awful potatoes!" Implant the image in your mind and think about how bad that smells. I'll bet that you'll remember the German word! If your image is wild and imaginative, even a little dirty, you are much more likely to remember your vocabulary word. It works, believe it! This is a system I have employed over many hundreds of words in several languages. Try it! You can use this helpful trick to remember far more things than German vocabulary!

These are just a few ways you can supercharge your brain. The improve your memory information that I've shown you here is easy enough that you can start practicing right away! In no time, your memory will be much improved, thanks to the new techniques you've learned and practiced.

How to Get Everything You Can From Your Blog's RSS Subscriber

Posted by Zulkarnai Harun Ar Rashid |

RSS has become a useful tool when it comes to getting your posts to your subscribers, but those people will quickly leave if you aren't giving them what they ask for. The three tips below are the ones the experts use when they want their subscribers to remain just as they are. In the event you want to construct a real on-line asset and create lump sum profits then you ought to take a take a look at what Ryan Moran has produced with http://www.rylanclayne.com/etycoon/etycoon-review for a lot more in depth info.

The first thing to keep in mind when you want people to see your blog as something valuable is to refrain from creating paid reviews. Even if you are writing them, always ensure that you are keeping them to a minimum. The reason you'll want to stay away from paid reviews is because there is a stigma attached to them, and people's motivation is typically money-motivated instead of providing an honest review. The whole reason you're doing reviews is so that you can weigh the pros and cons of the products. Paid reviews aren't going to seem very genuine. If people sense that you're doing this, you are going to have people unsubscribing from your RSS feed left and right.

Secondly, the best way to get people to remain subscribers is to provide true value without distracting them. For example, when you include too many hyperlinks, you will see people divert in other directions. You want their whole focus on whatever content you provide, so that it benefits them the most. That's why you don't want to leave too many ways for them to escape. Whenever you post, you need to focus on providing true value, so that your readers always feel satisfied that they got what they came for. Readers are always searching for those webpages that offer the entire bulk of the information they seek, as it's annoying to have to go searching for more. Links are ok to use after your posts, as they'll be done reading and ready to go somewhere else. The bottom line is that your subscribers should always get just what they came for when it comes to your page.

Lastly, your readers should always feel as though you care about their needs or else they won't be subscribers for long. That's why you will always want to respond to their communications and also to whatever feedback they offer. This will reveal to them that you actually do value them that you took time out of your day to answer their communications. Not only that, but it gives you the opportunity to find out how to talk to your readers and also how they feel about your product. This goes beyond the typical customer service because here you're genuinely trying to help your readers, which gives them a reason to stay connected to you.

You should now see that keeping your RSS subscribers is actually quite easy. Just always remember that your RSS subscribers are on your list because of the value you provide, so never ignore that.
