Online Business Survival in a High Tech Social World

by , under Internet Marketing

Today I want to talk a bit about what business and more specifically online businesses are doing to survive in our new high tech social world.

I say new because even though the home computer was born in the late 1970’s the World Wide Web didn’t really become a common household term until the mid 1990’s.

In the last 15 years or so brick and mortar businesses have diversified to the world of online business and a plethora of new online only businesses have been born.

However, the high tech social world in which we now live is ever changing and simply leaves many of these new businesses fighting for survival in an era where everybody is connected.

Not only must you have profiles set up in all the major social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg and the likes but you also must actively participate in all these networks.

It’s vital to connect with people in every way possible.

To survive and be successful, it’s pertinent for even the largest online businesses to interact and network with the new age internet population.

As our world becomes hurriedly impersonal we find it more important than ever to embrace the high tech world which makes it so impersonal to begin with.

Blogging, SEO and cell phone search optimization will only get bigger and it would be wise for all in business to get informed and stay on top of current events.

In the end, those who survive and actually profit will be the businesses who engage the most.

Technology and social networks seem to be operating in uniform and I believe this is because no matter how impersonal the world gets we humans still crave personal relationships.

We truly want to know who we’re doing business with and we love to feel like part of something bigger.

I’d love to hear your ideas and thoughts.

What are you doing differently so that your online business may survive and become a success in this high tech social world?


What’s So Special About You?

by , under Internet Marketing

Let’s say that you’ve spent months building a super nice and user friendly website. You’re following all the rules by the book. You’ve also already done all the back breaking SEO and link building work but you still just can’t get any visitors to come to your site. First and foremost, you should consider that your rise to fame will not happen overnight. It takes time to build trust and sound relationships. It could also be that it’s time to ask yourself, “What’s so special about you?”

What does your site really offer to the world?

I mean people go to Walmart because the company did an excellent job of building their brand and because they know that they are going to save money on their shopping.

Steve Pavlina, a genius when it comes to personal development, gets upwards near 47,000 visits a day to his website because he’s worked his butt off to get to that point and because he gives people something they want. He offers them help in their own day to day lives.

Another great  example would be a site like Facebook. They get millions of daily visitors because they allow people to connect with friends and associates whom they haven’t seen or heard from in years.

If you want people to visit your website then you should be giving them a reason to visit. Maybe you give them a joke a day to help them laugh during the tough times or possibly just offer some free advice on whatever your specialty is. Let your visitors know what’s so special about you!

I don’t want to sound like the world’s expert on Psychology because I’m not even close. I do, however, know that when I visit a website it’s generally because that website has something I want. Sometimes I’m looking to buy something and other times I’m just looking for advice. Either way, the sites that are most helpful and friendly to me are the ones that I bookmark and keep going back for more!

Even with all of today’s modern technology such as home computers, ecommerce sites, blogging, social networking and forums, when it comes right down to it people still want that neighborly type atmosphere. I’m betting that if you show your visitors what is truly special about you and let them know that you’re really there to help, your website traffic will increase heavily.

Best Wishes!

Revolutionary New Tool Will Eliminate Business Cards

by , under Business

by: Dan Waggoner

A blogging friend of mine recently sent me some information on a revolutionary new tool called the MingleStick which will most certainly eliminate the business cards that we all have used for years. Some of my social and business minded friends out there are going to go ape over this one and you all know who you are. The MingleStick is a small inexpensive ($19.95) electronic keychain device that allows people to exchange identity information with the click of a button. I’m sure it will be heavily used by business professionals, college students, organizers and such because it’s supported by both Windows and Mac and will hold up to 500 mingles.

The MingleStick exchanges only ID #s but when you log into your account you get all the information the other user has programmed into his or her accounts public profile such as:

  • Name
  • Photo
  • Email Address
  • Business Address
  • Home Address
  • Cell Phone #
  • Business Phone #
  • Home Phone #
  • Social Networking Profiles such as Twitter, Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn

All this can be exchanged with the simple press of a button. Below you can see two people connecting their MingleSticks.


purchase_MingleStickBasically, two users point their MingSticks at each other and press the button. When the red flashing light turns solid green it means the connections has been made. It happens within a split second. Then later on when you’re ready you plug your MingleStick into your USB port on your computer where it connects to the MingleStick website and uploads the information. You just login with a secure username and password.

I’m very excited about this product because of what it means to the business and social networking world as we know it. I personally can’t ever find somebody’s business card when I need it anyway so this is a real winner for me. In my opinion it is definitely a revolutionary tool and it will without a doubt eliminate the hassle of purchasing, carrying and exchanging business cards.

Check it out and see what you think!

Best Wishes
