Tips for Inventory Management


Monday, February 9, 2015
Inventory management is a critical part of any business, yet far too many business owners pay little attention to how their inventory is managed. If your business seems to be running out of stock too often or if you are having difficulty managing your inventory counts, these tips can help you get your inventory under control and you could see a drastic improvement in your bottom line.


Use Inventory Projections

Unsold inventory costs money as products that are not moving can be damaged, take up space in warehouses and could actually become obsolete. By looking over past sales, you may be better able to project what you will need in the future. For example, if you sold 50 of a certain item last month, you may need to restock 50 more of those items. However, if you sold 25 of those 50 at the first week of the month, 15 the second, 10 in the third and none since then, the demand may be dwindling so you may not need to restock as many.

Track Inventory

One of the most important things to do to make sure your inventory is moving as it should is to track how many of each item you actually have on hand. There are many areas of the inventory process where errors can occur, such as entering errors, miscounts upon delivery and even employee theft. Use an electronic inventory control system that uses bar code scanning to eliminate some of those errors. You can also implement what is known as cycle-counting where you choose a few items each day and compare the inventory totals with what is actually on hand. Click to learn more about inventory control systems.

Other tips that can help you get a better handle on your inventory include focusing on the items that sell the best as well as using spreadsheets as back up to inventory systems. Be sure to back up all data to an external source, whether it is a USB drive, cloud software or other location that will keep the data safe in case of an emergency, such as a fire or computer crash.

Three Useful Website Monitoring Tools


Saturday, January 24, 2015
The first step towards creating an internet presence is to develop and publish a website. This is the primary way most businesses become known to customers and potential customers. Of course, a website is only valuable if people actually visit it. Smart business owners want to know who is visiting, how they got there, and whether or not they are returning visitors. A good portion of what drives people to visit websites are marketing campaigns based around SEO, but how does someone measure the success of a marketing campaign without any benchmarks? Now, all of the web traffic does not matter at all, if a website is constantly down. Traffic monitoring is only one piece of the puzzle. One must also monitor his/her website for technical issues. Let's look at three monitoring tools.



  1. Uptime Robot is a free tool that will monitor up to fifty separate websites for each account. These websites are checked every five minutes in order to ensure that everything is working correctly. If the monitor encounters a problem, the account holder will be contacted via an SMS text message or an email. This may not be the most robust tool. It doesn't check CPU or memory issues. However, given the cost, it is certainly adequate for most websites.

  1. No post on website monitoring would be complete without a mention of Google Analytics. Why? Well, Google Analytics isn't only the most popular or the biggest player in this category, it are also one of the best. When it comes to robust monitoring of website traffic, there is no better option than Google Analytics. Use GA to determine who your customers are, where they are coming from, and why they came to your website. This is a great way for business owners to measure the success of the content marketing strategies they are using. Imagine knowing how many customers have clicked into a website through a YouTube video or a blog. Imagine knowing how many customers are visiting a website using a mobile device. All of this information is gathered by GA and presented in a useful format that can be used to steer a company in the right direction.

  1. Some webmasters aren't satisfied with knowing simply whether or not their website is up or down. They want to know that everything is performing at an optimum level. This is especially true with websites where transactions are being processed, and websites where fast performance is key to attracting and keeping customers and visitors. The best way to measure website performance is through direct user feedback. Pingdom is a service that does just that (among many other things). Pingdom account holders receive feedback from real users about the performance of their web pages. This gives a level of insight that no automated monitoring system ever could.

There they are, three website monitoring tools that have the potential to increase the performance and value of any web page or blog. Hopefully, these will prove useful to many business owners who wish to maximize the value of the internet for their company.

Even if you try to outsource this work to any SEO consultant you may end up getting a wrong man on job thus giving you nothing really tangible for your optimization task. And considering the power of search engine optimization and good amount of results you get for your business, you cannot even think of neglecting this idea of marketing. So, why not check some of the key SEO techniques, which all startups should use in the following paragraphs.

Identify your relevant keywords
The basic thing you as a startup should do is to start identifying some of the relevant and important keywords for your niche area. This will help you in getting the organic traffic and giving best outcomes for your motor marketing results along with enhancing your web pages accordingly. This should include all the popular keywords and phrases your potential clients would be entering in the search engines along with finding out a couple, which are not that competitive. Once you find these keywords, make sure you start using these over all the key areas like title, content, tags, etc. but make sure avoid stuffing them too much.
Create quality content
Content has a prime importance in different search engine optimization strategies, which cannot be ignored at any point of time. It is considered as king and people creating high quality content are known as king makers. Creating high quality content could help you in getting quicker and effective results for your SEO efforts. By producing content over your blogs or websites would help in covering your keywords that simply all you to get better search engine ranks. It also helps in creating a space over your site, which allows you to interact with your customers and potential clients. This has to be a consistent strategy, which has to be adopted on a regular interval of time to reap positive results for your SEO efforts.
Try link building
The trick for getting a more tangible outcome in your SEO efforts comes by building links to your innermost web pages and not simply promoting your home page of your website. The link building process helps you in getting links from quality places over the web. The volume, relevance and quality of the links, which point over your site, could be called as quality signals found over the search engine ranking algorithms. The best and simplest way to carry out your link building activities is to check your competitors and find out the places where they are getting their backlinks. This could be done using a number of tools like Open Site Explorer and Majestic SEO. Though you shouldn’t be replicating their link profiles for the link-for-link things, but you could certainly use the data generated by different programs to get the potential linking sources and harness the missed link opportunities. This will therefore help you in outranking your competitors in different search engine results.
Connecting with the social networks

In order to carry out this the best, make sure you find out people that would connect with you according to the number of followers and influence found in your niche area, and your relationship building with these people should come naturally. By sharing their content or becoming a helping hand for these people could end up giving rich dividends for your search results.
Launch an effective PR campaign
Lastly, one of the key SEO techniques, which shouldn’t be missed by the novices, is launching press releases. Whenever you have anything new in your business or even in your niche area consider this as an opportunity to write a PR and submit it over a number of sites dealing with these write ups. If you have a major event for your business, you could think of launching an effective PR campaign, this will boost traffic at your business thus helping you a lot in your SEO efforts.
Final word
Every novice must try these SEO techniques as these would help you in getting the best results over the search engine rankings. All you need to do is to keep trying with all patience and consistency and soon you would start getting the desired results.

Is One Plus One The Sexiest Phone of 2014?


Wednesday, January 7, 2015

Mobile phones have become a commodity in the current scenario. Every other day you would hear a phone launch. Always looking into the regular titans doesn’t seem pretty grand. Few among the global standard marks a buzz. Xiamoi which brought a level of standard and economically price offered on their brand vowed the Indian audience and made most of its sales within seconds.

Another Chinese product which gained a lot of attention is OnePlus One. The phone makers might take pot shots at their rivals, come up with some hilarious advertisement. But it got one step ahead of adopting a Tagline Never Settle. That’s an ambitious tagline if ever there was one.




 







One of the main reason behind the buzz of OnePlus is being the unique idea of selling the phone based on invitations only. The invite only method has been discontinued in favour of the more familiar pre order route. In an era where marketing a phone is the main key, this invite only method was certainly  unconventional, but led to a lot of word of mouth publicity and even the hype given in social medias.

Obviously, selling the phone is not the buzz but the phone comes with spectacular features and affordable price and it runs on cyanogen mod ROM which is another geeks android fantasy. So lets check out more about this ‘Flagship Killer’ or its just another phablet.

Build and Design -















OnePlus One has a 5.5-inch display which is surrounded on all sides by a metallic corner. There’s a slight dip on the top and the bottom of the display which shows the end of the glass front and beginning of the metallic edges. On the front, you only have the earpiece speaker section on the top and the front facing camera beside it. The display has a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.






The rear cover – Sandstone black in our case – covers the majority of the rear side as well as the sides of the phone. In fact, the front glass is separated from the rear cover only with the silver metallic lining. Although the rear cover is swappable, you will need a special instrument to get it to open as it offers a snug fit around the rear and sides of the phone. The Sandstone cover has a lovely texture which feels somewhat like a softer version of a regular sandpaper. It gives a great grip on the phone.











Coming to the rear side you have the 13MP rear camera with a dual LED flash unit. You have a microphone places just beside the camera section. Below the camera is the OnePlus branding followed by the Cyanogen branding on the bottom of the rear side. We like the minimalist design of the phone. The curved rear also helps with grip. It weighs just 162 grams and is 8.9mm thick on the sides. OnePlus One does not have the Ingress Protection certification, it is not water and dust resistant.

 

Specifications  -

One of the main reasons behind the buzz around the OnePlus One are the stellar internals. It houses a Snapdragon 801 system-on-chip with a 2.5GHz quad-core Krait 400 processor and Adreno 330 graphics processor. This is paired with 3GB of RAM. On the storage front, the Sandstone version offers 64GB of space of which 54.87GB is available to the user. There is no microSD card slot for this model. But with over 50GB of storage space, does one really need it?














It sports a 5.5-inch full HD display IPS LCD display puts the pixel density at 401 pixels per inch. That is quite a dense display and thanks to the Corning Gorilla Glass 3 covering, the phone is protected from accidental scratches. On the camera front you have the 13MP rear camera and a 5MP front camera. There is a 3100 mAh battery. You can remove the rear cover, but you can’t take out the battery.



Software -









Cyanogen Mod is the unique selling point of this phone which makes this phone pre-rooted and unique from most of the other phones out there which either come with a skinned user interface atop the Android OS or stock Android OS. One of the major advantages of pre-installed Cyanogen Mod firmware is that you have the root access and you can do a lot of customisations. We had the Android 4.4.4 KitKat OS with the Cyanogen Mod CM 11S custom ROM atop it.

The other interesting app is Screen-cast app which lets you record your on screen navigations with the recording registering where you've touched the screen as well. With regular phones, you would need root access to do this.




Performance-



Considering the OnePlus One houses a Snapdragon 801 SoC and comes with 3GB of RAM, we did not experience any lagging or stuttering while using the device. Animations are smooth and we did not experience any slowing down of the device despite opening multiple apps, over 20 Chrome tabs and so on.







Call Quality is quite good indoors and there wasn’t any distortion on the earpiece speaker. However while outdoors in traffic situations, the high volume levels would still not manage to drown out the ambient noise. There were a lot of occasions, when on accepting calls the phone switched to speaker phone and we had to manually disable it. On the OnePlus forums, this is an issue that is being discussed. Hopefully the issue will be addressed in the next system update, although we aren’t sure if it is indeed a software issue.

The speakers located at the base of the phone are sufficiently loud. Despite your hands covering them while watching a movie in the landscape mode, we faced no issues while watching a movie indoors. Some of the AudioFX effects are not available in the speaker mode and you will need to invest in a pair of headset to get the effects such as Bass Boost and Surround Sound. We said you need to invest in a pair is because the bundle does not include any headsets.

It supports quad-band 2G and 3G along with 4G LTE bands. On the connectivity front, you have Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA. It supports GPS with GLONASS along with sensors such as a proximity sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer.

Product Review-










OnePlus One has been one impressive phone. It has the specs that are up there with the best of the phablets, but at a price which is hovering in the mid-range segment.
 The price will be under Rs 25000.

The Cyanogen Mod CM11 lets you tweak the phone to your liking. Thanks to CM11 a lot of the apps which would require rooting your device, work smoothly. The settings app is highly detailed and you can customise it to your preferences.

Performance wise, we did not find any major issues. The Snapdragon 801 SoC and 3GB of RAM are great for most tasks and never slow down the phone. Games played smoothly. We liked the many settings on offer with the camera, although note that the back of the phone heats up when you are shooting full HD or 4K videos. Battery life is another big plus point. It can easily last over a day to a day and a half on regular usage. We would have liked to see a native battery saving feature as well.

So if you are looking for a top of the line phablet, but do not have the budget for the likes of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus or the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the OnePlus One is a great alternative. If you want a pure Android experience and like playing around with your phone settings and experimenting with your handset, this is an ideal device. At its price range, the OnePlus One has barely any competition. If the huge screen size is not to your liking, the closest option is the Google Nexus 5 but you get only 16GB of storage with it. Now with the Mi 3 almost having stopped its sale and Mi 4 still to launch in India – OnePlus One makes for a good buy at its price.






Signage in the Store


Tuesday, December 9, 2014
When you own a business, you need to reach out to customers. One of the ways to do that is by using custom signs. There are many kinds of signs that you can get that will get the attention of customers so that they will know about the business as well as some of the sales that are held.



Custom signs that are made of lights often attract more customers than a plain sign on paper. The light display can be changed so that it shows another picture or set of words. This can save the store money on advertising as you won't have to keep getting signs made. These signs are often used in grocery stores as well as retail stores where sales will change on a frequent basis. You can put the signs on a shelf so that customers can see them while they are in front of the products, or larger ones can be placed on a wall so that they are prominently seen. These will help get a message across to customers about any closings that the store might have or new products that might be introduced in the future. Custom signs can also include the phone number and name of the business with a logo. Learn more about designs and how to order by looking online.

Pictures Over Words - When your own a business is important!


Tuesday, December 2, 2014
Pictures Over Words

Reaching others when you own a business is important because your customers are who will make your business succeed. One of the best ways to get information to people is by visually advertising. This can be done in a variety of ways whether it's on a billboard or on a flyer that's circulated through town.



The most common reason you should advertise is to let other people know that you are in business. If people don't know you're open, they won't be able to spend money in your store. When there are people walking by your store all day, they know you're there. It's the people who don't know your store exists who will benefit from advertising. You can let customers know about all of the sales and promotions that the store holds through the year by advertising in newspapers. Another benefit of advertising visually is that customers can quickly see what you have to offer instead of reading a lot of information about the store online. This will give them a way to see whether they need anything that your store sells or if they can let others know about what your store offers so that they can shop at your business. Find out here about various ways to advertise visually to get the best responses.

How to Add Value When Making Car Repairs


Wednesday, November 5, 2014
Car repairs are unfortunately a necessary part of vehicle ownership. All of the components in a vehicle can and will wear out or break over time, and repair work will be needed for all makes and models. While you can simply locate the parts numbers on the components that need to be replaced and make an apples for apples switch, another idea is to add true value to your vehicle by taking the opportunity to make an upgrade. While not all components will have upgraded or enhanced parts available, there are actually some rather cost-effective and affordable solutions that can yield great results with minimal additional out-of-pocket expense for you. These are just a few ideas that you can consider the next time your vehicle requires repairs.


Changing Your Vehicle's Light Bulbs
You may have light bulbs throughout the interior and exterior of your vehicle, so you may find yourself needing to change the light bulbs rather frequently. While some may burn out, others may become damaged due to a mishap. It is simple enough to locate the exact same bulbs that are currently in your vehicle when you are making a replacement, but a better idea is to make an affordable upgrade. For example, the 3157 led bulb can be installed for your head lamps, turn signals and other lights, and it gives your car a more exotic, luxurious look. If you make this upgrade, be sure that you replace all of the exterior bulbs at the same time so that your lighting has a uniform appearance.

Upgraded Tires
There are few things that can impact a vehicle's overall style more dramatically than the tires. When the tires are basic, even a beautiful vehicle can take on a downgraded look. While you may want to extend the life of your existing tires for as long as possible, when the time comes to make a replacement, you can invest a few hundred extra dollars to make a desirable upgrade. Simply going up a size or two on the tires may be all that it takes to give your vehicle the upgraded look that you desire, and this benefit can continue for as long as those tires are on the vehicle.

Keeping your car in great shape by making repairs as needed is always a smart idea, but rather than stick with the status quo, you can make a beneficial upgrade. Consider how you can implement some of these or other beneficial upgrades to improve the value, function and look of your vehicle.

HOW TO: Add Page Numbers in Adobe PDF Document Revealed using Tools
