How to Accurately Measure Your Site’s Metrics – Part 1 | thnxz to @SiteProNews


According to a recent presentation on web metrics by Google, the world’s digital habits have dramatically changed in the past 3 years. In 2009, the internet boasted a healthy 1.5 billion users, and just last year, this figure topped out at over 2.3 billion. That’s a 53% increase in just a few short years. Buying habits have also continued to shift. In 2009, when a customer arrived at a brick and mortar store, 70% of their purchasing decisions were already made. Last year, that figure bumped up to 90%.

We live in a multi-channel, multi-screen world, and the sheer variety and volume of paths and choices a customer has to make results in a complicated challenge for marketers. Deciphering how and where your audience is making key decisions continues to be a gigantic hurdle for businesses hoping to understand the true meaning of their metrics.

What is a Mission Statement? | businessnewsdaily.com


Vía businessnewsdaily.com

A mission statement is a statement declaring the purpose of an organization or company — the reason for this company’s existence. A mission statement provides framework and context to help guide the company’s strategies and actions by spelling out the company’s overall goal. Ultimately, a mission statement helps guide decision-making internally while also articulating the company’s mission to customers, suppliers, and the community.

It’s important to note the distinction between a mission statement and a slogan. A mission statement is not a marketing tool designed to grab attention quickly. While it should be catchy and memorable, a mission statement is a thoughtful declaration designed to articulate the goals and philosophies of a company. A mission statement is also not a business plan. A business plan is an organized outline of your ideas about how the business functions.

A mission statement differs from a vision statement. A mission statement says what the company currently is; a vision statement states what the company hopes to become. A mission statement is also not a business plan. A business plan is an organized outline of your ideas about how the business functions.

A mission statement is not an evergreen statement. As a company evolves over time, the company’s mission and intent may also change. A good rule of thumb is to revisit the mission statement every five years to see if it needs to be fine-tuned or rewritten. A mission statement will keep your company on track, but it shouldn’t become stale or irrelevant.

What does a mission statement include?

5 de cosas que vas a escuchar antes de emprender por @GerrardStewart


 

todostartups.com

Cuantas veces nos hemos muerto de frío por no hacer caso a una madre cuando nos dijo “¿no te llevas el abrigo? Te vas a helar…” Bueno parece que ellas lo sabían por experiencia y sobre todo por cariño, el que tienen hacia sus hijos, igual que un emprendedor hacia su pequeña Startup que no quiere que se muera de frío.

Por mi experiencia en twago y ResearchGate aún no me considero madre suficiente como para recomendar piezas de ropa, pero si he tenido la suerte de estar en contacto con mentes brillantes capaces no sólo de hacerte llevar el abrigo sino que también conjunte con tus zapatos, y estas son las 5 tendencias:

1. Horarios laborales de 8 horas

Muy rápido te darás cuenta que ya no existe barrera entre oficina/casa, los días de 24 horas ya no se llevan, sobre todo en las fases iniciales del proyecto la dedicación exclusiva es casi un requisito indispensable. Pero no desesperemos, el tiempo, aunque raro suene, en este caso no es permanente. La intensidad no siempre será la misma y por supuesto tendremos momentos para relajarnos un poco más. Pero, en cualquier caso, olvidémonos de las jornadas de 8 horas. Sigue leyendo

The 5 Types of Work That Fill Your Day

Hacking work is all the rage these days, along with tips for managing email, taking notes, and running meetings. But, at a higher level, what can we learn from analyzing the different types of work we do and how we allocate our time?First, let’s take a look at the five kinds of work we do every day:

1. Reactionary Work
In the modern age, most of our day is consumed by Reactionary Work, during which we are focused only on responding to messages and requests – emails, text messages, Facebook messages, tweets, voicemails, and the list goes on. You are constantly reacting to what comes into you rather than being proactive in what matters most to you. Reactionary Work is necessary, but you can’t let it consume you.

2. Planning Work >>> Sigue leyendo

La distancia entre realidad y Power Point | *** Lo PeDiS Lo TeNeS *** PPT Parte 2


Posted by Titonethttp://www.titonet.com

 

Cuando alguien presenta un proyecto todo pinta controlado, perfecto. La marca aparece perfectamente representada. Los consumidores interactúan de forma activa y van pasando desde una plataforma a otra sin ninguna dificultad. La prensa y los bloggers publican la noticia de forma repetida. Se produce una viralidad natural que hace que el proyecto se difunda solo. La plataforma tecnológica no genera ningún error y los resultados conseguidos son espectaculares. El presupuesto está controlado y encaja con la capacidad del anunciante.

..

Este es el mundo del Power Point. Se trata de un maravilloso software tiene la capacidad de poder representar conceptos e ideas de una forma que pocos programas han conseguido antes. Lo que ocurre es que fruto de la expansión de este software, la distancia entre una propuesta y la ejecución final cada vez es más grande. Es muy fácil representar de forma atractiva una idea en un ppt, pero cada vez es más difícil es conseguir hacerlas realidad. Sigue leyendo

Why Strategy Matters in Business


“Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.” Sun Tzu

A business strategy is a set of planned tactics, or steps, that ensure a successful business. A strategy must be carefully planned and executed in order to achieve a desired goal. Starting a new business or advancing a company to the next level is no different. A strategy is the direction one must take to reach the desired goal and tactics are steps that need to be taken to travel in the right direction. Almost all businesses have five strategies in common – marketing strategy, product strategy, pricing strategy, financial strategy, and operational strategy. It is imperative that entrepreneurs take time to research and create a strategic business plan with all of the steps included and stretching your business forward.

1. Marketing Strategy

Marketing strategy targets a desired audience and designs advertisements aimed at that particular audience. This strategy also involves researching similar businesses, their products and /or services, and their advertising methods. Companies can use this information to outshine the competitor’s advertisements, products, and services. Today, one of the most popular, as well as successful, marketing strategies is social media, in all its forums and platforms, on the internet… Sigue leyendo

5 Tips for taking your tech startup from big idea to business success


 

Dave Blakey

 By  | http://memeburn.com

 

Throughout the world, and particularly in emerging market countries, the entrepreneurial landscape remains notoriously difficult to navigate, with an estimated 80% of small businesses failing to sustain themselves for a period of longer than five years.

However, with an increasing percentage of jobs now being directly attributable to small business ventures, financial backers in both private and public sectors are slowly starting to acknowledge the substantial impact of entrepreneurial activity on a nation’s economy.

Yet, in spite the rising global trend towards venture capitalist backing of tech startups, there remain very few such initiatives present in emerging markets. Can this be accredited to unsustainable entrepreneurial ecosystems, or is success simply a mind-set shift away?

Conservative investors
A venture capital investor once told me that, out of ten investments, he expected seven to fail, two to return his investment and one to make a fortune. Those are fairly frightening odds for someone investing large amounts of capital, but even more terrifying for someone looking to leave the security of the job market to launch a start-up business.

What’s more, bankers and financiers are generally not intent on funding ideas that might be perceived as “pie in the sky”, particularly when it comes to the technical and creative industries.

As a result, it’s no wonder that many start-ups end before they even crank up the proverbial engine, the main reason being they couldn’t raise the venture capital financing required to start, or were simply too afraid to try.
