How To Learn Something New

Image
The older we get, it becomes more intimidating to learn something new. Whether it’s a skill, a craft, a computer program or simply a new game, we shirk from learning new things because it seems like a challenge we may not want to take on. However, if you break it down for yourself into bite-sized steps, learning something new can not only be easy, but also be a pleasure.
Where Do I Start? Approach any topic you aren’t sure about systematically. First, you need to do research on the topic before you plunge headfirst into something new. If you want to learn about fixing cars, head to the library and check out a book about cars and Mustang parts. 
Another good way to bone-up on something new is to ask around and find someone that’s really good at that particular skill. Get some firsthand knowledge. Even better, find a class that you can join so you don’t have to get all the information on your own.
Practice Makes Perfect Once you feel like you’re kind of getting the hang of your new skill, …

The Top 5 Time Wasters Online

The Internet is a haven for product and productivity. Here’s how to keep your web-based career focused by avoiding these time-sucking websites.
Facebook Oh Facebook, how we love thee. We love funny status updates and crazy memes. We love seeing baby photos of our newest cousins and our friend’s pictures from last night’s wild party. We love reading the mini soap operas of friends and family who live hundreds of miles away who we haven’t seen in years. Facebook, you’re awesome!
Drudge Report If you’re a news junkie then chances are you know Matt Drudge and his news aggregator featuring stories that you really can’t find in one place anywhere else. Politics? Check. International news? Check. Domestic dramas? Check. Celebrity updates? Check. Oddities? Check. Drudge really does have it all.

Windows vs. Mac – The Struggle for China

Image
In late 2011 it became official; China overtook the United States as the largest smartphone market in the world. While the United States is still the largest smartphone market by revenue, China is quickly gaining and now possesses the largest market in regards to sheer smartphone volume. Market research firm Strategy Analytics found that a record 23.9 million smartphones were shipped in China during the third quarter of 2011, representing sequential growth of 58%. In the United States, smartphone shipments fell to 23.3 million units, a 7% dip compared to the second quarter. With a rapidly growing market, and a downward trend in the U.S., China is proving to be the future battleground for mobile operating systems such as Windows Phone and iPhone.

In early 2012 Apple made the first move. On January 13th, Apple released its iPhone 4S to China and 21 other markets throughout the world. Soon after, in March of 2012, Windows responded. In late March the first Windows Phone-powered handset…

The Growing Role of Tablets in the Mobile Device Ecosystem

Image
There’s always been an uncertainty with Tablets. They’re not smartphones, and they’re not quite laptops … so what are they? What is their role? And where do they fit?
Consumers seem to be feeling a conflict of interests when it comes to purchasing tablets. Zach Epstein, BGR Executive Editor, may have best explained this conflict of interest when he addressed his own concerns about the iPad and other tablets:
“You can watch videos on an iPad, but I would rather watch on a TV. You can work on an iPad, but I would rather use a notebook or desktop computer. You can quickly maneuver through dozens of gorgeous apps on an iPad, but I have smartphones packed to the brim with great apps. You can read books on the iPad, but I have a Nook Touch that lasts for more than a month on a charge, and is much lighter and more comfortable to hold than the iPad. For everything the iPad does, I already own something that does it better.”
Well-warranted his criticism may be. But despite the criticism and uncer…

How to Succeed in an Online Business School

Image
Congratulations, you have been admitted into an online business school of your choosing! As you already know by undergoing the admission process, the experience ahead of you is not going to be easy. It shouldn’t be. The online business school course offerings should challenge and expand your mind if the degree you ultimately earn is going to be worth the paper it’s printed on.
Study Hard and Hit the Books! Take your lessons seriously. Much like in the traditional campus setting, goofing-off will be counterproductive. In some ways there is even greater transparency in the online school environment than in a crowded classroom and definitely less of a policing factor to keep the students in check. Cramming for tests and taking shortcuts might have some short-term gain, but in the end there is no substitute for strong time management skills and a disciplined work ethic–both in business school and beyond.
No Peer Pressure Here How crazy is it, especially when we are young, that this prevailing…

How to Combine Features and Benefits in Product Copy

Image
You know the size and color of your product, what it’s made of and what each little button does. But none of this helps customers understand why they should buy it – that is, unless you explain it to them. Consumers are being marketed to all the time, but they’ll only buy the things that save them time or money or otherwise make their lives easier. That’s why your copy needs to tout the features and benefits of your product.
Features and Benefits: What’s the Difference? A famous urban legend says the new CEO of a drill manufacturer told his sales team they were no longer selling the drills, but the holes that the drills produced. That’s the best way to differentiate features from benefits.
Features are the elements of a product that the consumer can see, feel or measure. The benefits are the end results of those features. 
A cookware company, for example, could talk about the features of green cookware, including materials and cooking time; or it could talk about the faster cooking time, …
