What Almost No One Knows About Stores

Advantages Of Online E-Liquid Stores.

There are many benefits of using e liquid rather than tobacco. One of the benefits of using e liquid is that there are many different kinds of flavors. In addition, the e liquid generates minimal smell during vaporization and the only smell is not irritating. On the other hand, the minimal amount of smoke that comes from is normally nice and therefore, even the people that are close to you will not be irritated. Likewise, e liquid is much cheaper than tobacco.

There are numerous stores that sell e liquid and therefore ensure that you select the one that is slightly convenient for you. The advantages of shopping from an online store are more compared to the benefits of shopping from a physical store. On the other hand, when you purchase your e liquid from a physical store, you will probably use many hours since you will be moving from one store to another searching for the one that has reasonable prices. That means that there are many opportunities for you with online shopping. While shopping from the internet, you will be able to access more information regarding e liquids that are easily available online.

Online products are usually much cheaper and of higher quality compared to the ones sold in physical stores. Therefore, the prices of the internet based shops are better compared to the ones in the physical stores. Therefore, ensure that you search for a store that has discount coupons as well as rebates. Therefore there are minimal opportunities that you will get a traditional shop that offers promotion discounts. Therefore, in case you require your e liquid urgently, then your best option is to buy the product from an online store.

Additionally, you can ask for recommendations from your friend for a good online store that sells the best e liquid. Asking for suggestions from people that you are close to is the best way to acquire information since you are sure that the information are accurate. Moreover, you will have a chance to compare the prices of different websites and then pick the one that matches your budget. Also, you should read the online reviews that are available so that you can be sure that you are selecting the best shop that will offer high quality services. Also, it is best to pick an organization that has been offering such products for many years.

Remember that when you gather as much information as possible then you will have an opportunity to make an informed decision. If any of your potential e liquid shops refuses to pick your call then it means that their customer service is poor. With online shopping, you will save money since you will not use gas money. You will shop for your e liquid for only a few minutes and then continue with other responsibilities.

Small Business Owners: Utilizing Technology to Improve Profits

If you really want to become more profitable and improve operations in your company, you have to shift your focus from the following limiting thoughts about technology.

  1. If I buy the latest production software we will be in good shape
  2. We don’t do that here
  3. We are unique, we don’t have competition that use technology to help them generate profits
  4. The plan is in my head, people will steal it off the computer
  5. All I need is more sales to make more profits

You’ve got to get the right mindset by eliminating restricting thoughts, and then you’ll be ready to improve people, processes and profitability.

Do you ever wonder how a company can start out with just one idea, a passion and a vision, then 10 to 20 years later have thousands of employees and millions in sales?

  1. What did these companies do to become so successful
  2. Are the owners smarter than you?
  3. Do they work harder than you?
  4. Did they have better equipment or people than you?

No. But they do use better technology tools to drive operation (the people and the process). Operations represent about 60% or 80% of all your overhead costs but they’re the least understood by US businesses.

For decades, the Japanese have focused on operations that have driven innovation and a culture of continuous improvement. In the right small business owner hands, operations and technology can be a competitive weapon.

Now, ask yourself how can your small company— with just a handful of employees and limited resources — turn operations and technology applications into a powerful weapon to beat competition and learn to grow and thrive!

Why invest in technology / What are the benefits

The bottom line is, if you’re suffering from tight cash flow, exhausted lines of credit and top-line growth, then you have weak operations and have underutilized the technology applications onsite or off-the-shelf that can help you.

First step to rapid profit improvement is to start by questioning your employees. They usually know where costly blocks and bottlenecks are hidden.

Technology can store employee survey results that help you to plan profitability.

Employee Questionnaire(sample)

  1. Are your interests and ambitions being challenged
  2. Does each department in this company have measurable standard designed to increase profitability? Does each area have documentation of process flows and procedures of how it should work?
  3. Does everyone in this company share the goal of improving the company profits? Does the CEO hold town hall meetings about ‘planned profits’?
  4. Are you regularly told when you do good work?
  5. Do you get the help you need to do a good job?
  6. As an employee, do you feel you can trust your direct supervisor/manager?
  7. Are owner/managers open and honest with employees?
  8. Does the company provide you with continual training in areas that will make you a better employee? Has it trained you on how to cut operating expenses or increase revenue to improve profits in your area?
  9. Are your responsibilities generally explained, well planned and organized?
  10. Is poor performance tolerated by management? i.e., worker performance, operations bottlenecks and customer relations.

The following are other ways business productivity software drives business processes more efficiently to gain optimal results:

Create an open and communicative environment.

By storing appraisal information within a formal database, managers can more easily communicate business strategy and create measurable goals for their employees that will support overall company objectives. In allowing employees to see the whole picture and understand better how individual goals fit into the company’s business objectives. This can create a energized and engaged employees, thereby raising the business productivity of the company.

Motivate your employees using technology.

Based upon the information gathered in an online performance evaluation, managers can compare current skills with those required for advancement or other recognition or reward opportunities that present themselves as the manager tracks progress on employee goals throughout the year. You may also find you need to redirect employees to different departments if you feel their business productivity could increase elsewhere. If there are impediments to better performance, the company should review why it is happening and try to eliminate these through better allocation of resources or additional training.

Monitor business productivity and employee progress on goals.

Business productivity software solutions enable managers to more easily track progress during every phase of goal completion and offer immediate reinforcement or coaching to keep performance and deadlines on track in daily operations, and utilize performance measurements for strategic planning.

Electronic Commerce

There are many business applications related to e-commerce, from setting up your online storefront to managing your supply chain to marketing your products and services. These technologies fall into three main categories:

Business to Business(B2B)

  • Purchasing indirect supplies
  • Look for catalogue-based websites offered by suppliers for corporate purchases, similar to business-to-customer websites, for purchasing indirect supplies such as office furniture, pens, paper, and general office equipment.
  • Leveraging your existing Web presence
  • Improve your existing business-to-customer e-commerce website. Greater sophistication can be added into your online store to target your business clientele.

Business to Customer(B2C)

The global reach of the Internet has allowed many businesses to sell their products and services online, both at home and abroad. An electronic storefront is a website with many pre-built e-commerce components like electronic shopping carts and secure payment gateways that you can use to set up an online store.

Internet Marketing

Everything you do to promote your business online is Internet marketing. For example, Internet marketing strategies include (but are not limited to) website design and content, search engine optimization, directory submissions, reciprocal linking strategies, online advertising, and email marketing.

How to Implement Technology to increase profits

IT implementation can be a valuable tool for increasing workplace productivity, but without a careful selection of the right technologies for your specific industry and comprehensive employee training, it can also serve to reduce productivity, profitability and employee satisfaction. The return on investment will depend on whether the technologies implemented are right for a given business’ needs and how prepared employees are to use them.

Step 1

Brainstorm a list of business process improvements you may be able to realize from a technological implementation. Your list should include three categories: improvements that you know to be possible, and which are core requirements for your expense; a wish list of things you would like to have, but which may be future development efforts; and a list of things which would transform the way you do business, but which may not be possible. These three targets provide you with a present-day implementation goal, as well as a future development target–and it may be that your transformational goals could be far easier to reach than you expect.

Step 2

Determine whether you intend to develop these technologies using in-house resources, or through outside consultancies. Nearly every major workflow technology requires extensive customization, implementation procedures and training. Small businesses can sometimes get by cheaply using staff members technologically proficient–but mistakes made at the beginning of the process can ramp up costs later on when you turn to professional outside support.

Step 3

Avoid specifying particular technologies if you do not have the technical expertise to evaluate them properly. The purpose of the managerial process at this stage is to define goals and budgetary constraints; non-technical managers who wed themselves to specific technologies too early can miss out on substantial cost savings, and choose a technology not the best suited for the work.

Step 4

Circulate your request for proposals among outside consultants and implementors, or establish an internal process for doing the same among your staff if you are keeping the work in-house. Major technological implementations will not succeed if they are added to the existing workload of an employee. Proper technological implementations can be more than a full-time job in and of themselves. Staff members shifted to technology implementation should have their existing duties moved to other staff resources.

Step 5

Negotiate a time frame, budget and implementation benchmarks with your external or internal staff resources. If you are working with an outside consultant, your contract should include protections against running over budget and over schedule. Likewise, the consultant will protect his own firm by setting specific terms of the work to be completed, and charging you extra if you change them over the course of the contract.

Step 6

Develop an implementation timetable, including the following steps: test deployment to review the work; training, if necessary; a transition phase from the current workflow to the new technology; and production deployment of the completed technology. This last phase is typically followed by an iterative process, in which improvements to the technology are collected from the staff who have direct experience working with it. When budget and time allow for it, apply a new cycle of upgrades to your technology to ensure that you are getting the most out of it.

Is Technology Changing Our Brain Formatting – Should We Change Our Educational System To Match?

Not long ago, I was discussing with our think tank some of the challenges with all this new technology and all the information known to mankind literally in the palm of every student lucky enough to have a parent who bought them a smartphone. When holding all this knowledge in their hands – it’s no wonder they feel it a wasteful effort to memorize anything – “why bother, I can just look it up!” Well, they are right, even if we know there are some things they do need to know (memorize) and think about to survive in this world. Let’s talk.

Yes, the digitizing of the world, creates a different reality, one for which our brains and bodies were not necessarily evolved for, therefore human-centric technology is the key, and we need that before we go too much further. On the plus side, and it is a big PLUS, we open our horizons when we become digitally connected in such abundance. And, it is not the technology that is the problem alone, it’s how it’s used. That is the real digital divide. One person may use the technology to send pictures of “cats” to friends on Facebook, another might use it to collaborate with Canine Researchers around the planet to save big cats from extinction. Now then, the latter is much better of course, but we must allow freedom to choose how one wishes to use the technology gift before them right?

I read an interesting article the other day; “We Were Promised Flying Cars, All We Got Was 140-Characters,” meaning that Twitter is worth $10s of Billions and for about $500 million we could have successful perfected VTOL personal flying machines. Humans vote with their dollars, the average person wanted to be amused by distracting text messages and self-validation since they were missing something in their lives, now they want more of that, why? Because, they are so busy using the technology they feel even more empty inside – but then again, their addictions to these technologies were a choice, who are we to argue with their freedom to choose? Hard to say, but yes, I tend to agree with you. I personally am not on Facebook, nor do I own a smart-phone for the very reasons most technologists have considered, but couldn’t do without.

How we teach our children in the midst of all this social media, information and technology will determine how they use it in the future. Our entire human civilization is at stake and god forbid if all that technology were to stop working one day?

5 Kinds of Mobile Battery Technology

The mobile phone or handset has turned into an integral part of the modern world and for both personal and professional use. In fact, in today’s age a day without a mobile phone is just impossible and this is not only because of its significance of offering one with the capability of communicating while on the go but also because of its wide array of other features that it provides. Such advancements in the cell phone technology have necessitated ample improvements in the battery technology for powering them. As most of these functions and features drain the power of the battery quickly, naturally now batteries require being more powerful and longer lasting than before.

Explore 5 kinds of mobile battery technology

• Lithium Ion- In fact the technology used in these batteries is advanced thus allows for a higher charge capacity, which is relative to the battery’s weight and size. Owing to this, such batteries are quite costly and will not fit in the older phones. These have been specially designed for charging the modern Smartphones.

• Lithium Polymer- this is amid the most advanced version of batteries accessible in the market. It is neatly cased in plastic and is sleek, light, small and safe compared to other batteries. The best part about this battery is it will not suffer from any memory effect and will contain about 40% more charge capacity compared to other batteries

• Nickel Cadmium- as opposed to the two aforementioned battery types this one suffers from memory effects. To prevent this, it should be discharged fully prior to getting charged up again. As a result, these batteries have turned redundant and manufacturers of mobile phones have stopped using this

• Nickel metal hydride- with regards to shape and size this battery is similar to the Nickel Cadmium yet contains double the energy and thus can run 40% longer. As these are not made of any chemicals and toxic materials they are more environmentally friendly. No wonder it is largely used.

• New Lithium Technology- this is the latest addition in the mobile phone battery world. It has been specially designed for taking things forward via leaps and bounds. Its specialty is it is 1000 times more powerful compared to its lithium predecessors and in the future may take just a fraction of a second for charging up. Such advancements are at a very early stage of development yet will assist battery technology in catching up with the increasing speed of development that mobile handsets have gone through

Mobile phones undoubtedly are a part and parcel of one’s life and these cannot function without batteries. So batteries play a crucial role and will develop more and more in the years to come.

10 Quick Tips For an Android Media Box

1) Less is more. Remove apps that you don’t use. This will clear up valuable space on your Android Media box.

2) Clean Start. Every week, turn off your box and unplug it from the mains power for 10 seconds. Do the same with your internet Broadband router/hub. This clears the cache and forces the box and router to make new connections, clearing out old unused ones, which sometimes slows the devices down.

3) Shut down. Always ensure you shut down Kodi XBMX correctly. Kodi XBMC is like an operating system. If you simply turn off your box without shutting down Kodi, it will begin to play up. Kodi needs time to tidy away files and close connections. Use the exit icon located on the Kodi main menu to choose EXIT.

4) Be ready. Always have an SD card handy, with the latest firmware already installed on it. Every now and then, its good to do a fresh software install on your box, taking it back to the bare basics and rebuilding. Owning an SD card of at least 2gb in size is essential when owning an Android TV box.

5) Easy input. Spend a little extra and invest in an air remote. An air remote allows you to control the on-screen cursor extremely easily by just waggling the remote like a Nintendo Wii controller. Air remotes also come with a full QWERTY keyboard, allowing you to enter web addresses and search for films and apps very easily, instead of having to use the on-screen keyboard with the standard remote.

6) Take your box abroad. Many owners like to take their boxes on holiday with them. Almost all holiday villas now come with an HDMI-equipped TV and great WIFI. Taking your Android media box with you will allow you to have all your favorite TV and Movies wherever you go. Nothing is worse than trying to find something decent to watch on a foreign TV that doesn’t speak your language. The most TV boxes are smaller than the palm of your hand, so don’t take up a lot of room.

7) Use reboot manager. Reboot manager is a great app that allows you to reboot your box into recovery mode. If you already have your up to date SD card installed, it will reboot straight into updating the firmware, without you having to fiddle about with a screwdriver to press the reset button.

8) Make use of OTA updates. A few brands have their own OTA (Over The Air) update apps. This means that instead of using an SD card, the box can be automatically updated with any changed by going into OTA and downloading the update straight to the box. This is great for quick and simple installs when a manufacturer identifies a bug that needs a quick fix, or for some new features to be added.

9) Keep it secure. Using a VPN when using your box is a great way of keeping your streaming and browsing traffic secure, anonymous and away from prying eyes. There are a plethora of VPN apps out there that allow you to easily encrypt your traffic when using your box and most of them are very reasonably priced. The other great thing is you are able to watch video services that are locked to a specific country. For instance, you can use a VPN when abroad to watch something back in your home country, using a VPN to give the impression that you are currently there.

10) Clear cache. This is a great tip that can be used for all apps but especially Kodi. Going into settings and then apps, and systematically going through apps, and clearing their cache is a great way of keeping your box running smoothly and not letting it get bogged down with slow connection speeds.

Advantages Of Using Unmetered Dedicated Servers

As a business owner, you want to enjoy an unmetered dedicated server for yourself, which not only guarantees you unlimited bandwidth but also gives you the flexibility of managing and using your server properly. When you use these servers, you will proactively monitor the performance of your server and ensure that you get the best of your package. In this method, you will be charged for the speed of your port and not for the actual amount of data that you use, which is a huge blessing for you if you use streaming media for your business. You will not be sharing your port with anybody else; therefore, this gives you the sole control of your server. Here are a few advantages that you can experience, when you choose unmetered dedicated servers for your business.

Performance stability

When you share your port with other clients, it can create your server to slow down leading to reduced overall performance of your business. This is why an unmetered dedicated server can prove to be a huge blessing for you. Here, the port that you use is unshared and is exclusively available for you. You can manage streaming media content and other websites in a better way in this method because you are assured of their performance stability. Since there are no drops in servers speed, you can count on them to perform brilliantly during your peak business hours.

Customizations possible

An unmetered dedicated server is entirely yours and therefore, you can do whatever you want with it. Sites, apps and platforms that are not supported on the traditional shared hosting or VPS hosting, are available without any hassles in these unshared servers. You can use it on any operating system that you want to download any app or site that you wish so that you can carry on with your digital operations in a very flexible way. If you are not comfortable with any of the settings of the server, you can alter the same to a setting that is alright with your systems, thereby making customizations a breeze to handle with!

Secured operations

This is probably one of the most important reasons as to why you need to choose unmetered dedicated servers for your business. In the shared server system, if you share your server with unscrupulous clients, your business runs the risk of being blacklisted or banned as a consequence of the other clients’ operations. If your client doesn’t have business ethics, there is also a possibility of digital scams where your confidential data is being stolen by him for his benefit. All of these messy problems are avoided when you use an unshared port. You can run your business in the most secure way and be answerable to the concerned authorities only for the consequences of your business decisions.

Value for money

Yes, these unshared ports cost you more than the shared ports. However, they are worth every dime because they offer various benefits in the form of secured operations, unlimited streaming, complete freedom, excellent speed and high-quality features that make them so much more worthwhile than the traditional methods.

Let Us All Vote Online Now – Why Wait For The Future?

What happens in the future when we are all voting online in real-time? Can our society and civilization handle change at that rate of speed? Will it disrupt our culture and government, our entire system and country? Instantaneous voting would be nice, it would also harness the wisdom of the crowds, but is that a good thing with all this mass Cable TV media misdirection, that owns the mind of the masses with its daily propaganda?

Those in control would stay there, the people would demand it I suppose, but eventually get tired of BS and occasionally the powers that be would have to send down a scape goat of the political elite – or would people simply demand to ‘drain the swamp’ often enough to keep the power base on edge, truly bringing power back to the people? Let’s talk.

One of our Think Tankers Cody Hunt in reflecting on this issue stated:

“I agree that this could catch citizens off guard and the speed of the policy implementation could create a system with less checks and balances. The other side to this is that things will finally get done. Some legislature takes years just to pass and then even longer to put into effect. Sometimes that can be a good thing and sometimes that can be a bad thing.”

Still, he agrees that such technology exists now and we could implement it and be all the better for it – Cody also states:

“I think the app should be used for policy polls and maybe even for elections. Everything should be at a local level and then on big policy changes or elections at the national level.

Okay so, you have concluded that we most likely should start off with a “Policy Poll” usage first for the app. Yes, this is wise, plus it would help steer the country towards what the citizens want on a long-term basis where we make 5-10 plans, helping the on-going planning process stay smooth. Then introduce the app as an all-inclusive voting app to ensure maximum turnout to ensure the will of the people, and greater-access. Smart.

Greater participation in voting and less apathy would makes us all better citizens feeling that we are part of something much bigger, that our vote mattered and was counted and we could see the results almost immediately. It would give disillusioned voters buy-in, whereas before they felt alienated adding to their distrust in government and our leadership

Artificial Intelligence in Salesforce

According to John McCarthy, who is the father of Artificial Intelligence, an AI is “The science and designing of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent PC programs”.

Artificial intelligence is a way of making a computer robot or a software think intelligently same as an intelligent human thinks. Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the concept of having machines “think like humans”.

AI has a huge effect on your life. Whether you are aware or not, it has already influenced your life style and it is very much likely to grow in coming years.

Here are some examples of AI that you are already using in your daily life:

• Your personal assistant Siri – It is an intelligent digital personal assistant on various platform (Windows, Android, and iOS). It provides you an assistance whenever you ask for it using your voice.

• Smart cars – Google’s self-driving car, and Tesla’s “auto-pilot” feature are two examples of Artificial Intelligence.

• Recommended products or Purchase prediction – Large retailers like Amazon, recommend you the products, send coupons to you, offer discounts, target advertisements on the basis of the shopping you earlier had by a predictive analytics algorithm.

• Music and movie recommendation services – Pandora, and Netflix recommend music and movies based on the interest you’ve expressed and judgements you have made in the past.

Other simple examples of AI influencing our daily life are:

– Facebook provides recommended photo tags, using face recognition.
– Amazon provides recommended products, using machine learning algorithms.
– Waze (a GPS and maps app) optimal routes, all at the click of a button.
– Spotify knows my music preferences and curates personalized playlists for me.

As per Marc Benioff, AI is going to impact corporate world, employees will be faster, smarter and more productive. It will learn from the data. Ultimately, it will understand what customers want before even they know and it could be a game-changer in the CRM industry.

Salesforce already bought productivity, and machine learning startups RelatedIQ, Metamind, and Tempo AI in 2014.

AI (Artificial Intelligence) in salesforce is not about time-travelling robots trying to kill us, or evil machines using humans as batteries in giant factories. Here we are not talking about some summer blockbusters, we are talking about the salesforce AI which will make your daily experience smarter, by embedding daily predictive intelligence into your apps.

So, what is AI?

AI is not killer robots; it is killer technology.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the concept of having machines “think like humans” – in other words, perform tasks like reasoning, planning, learning, and understanding language.

Customer focused AI: Salesforce Einstein
Salesforce is focusing on creating a platform for solving the customer problems across Sales, Service, Marketing and IT in a completely new way by using Salesforce Einstein.

Salesforce Einstein is built into the core of the Salesforce Platform. It enables anyone to use clicks or code to build AI-powered apps.

With Salesforce Einstein, we can have answer of these type of questions:

– Are you sure that you are servicing your customers by the right client?
– Are you sure that your customers are getting services on the right channel?
– Is it correct to say that you are offering the right item to the right customer at the right time?
– Is it correct to say that you are using the right channel for marketing your products at perfect time with best substance?

Salesforce Einstein is your data scientist

Einstein is like having your own data scientist dedicated to bringing AI to every customer relationship. It learns from all your data – CRM data, email, calendar, social, ERP, and IoT – and delivers predictions and recommendations in context of what you’re trying to do.

AI has the ability to transform CRM using Salesforce Einstein

– Sales people can spend more time in visiting customers, not in entering data in CRM.
– Sales people can now better understand the customer requirement and when they need it.
– Sales people can close deals faster by predicting the next step for every customer.
– A service agent could suggest a solution to the customer even before he asked for it.
– Service agent can offer cross-sell at the right time to the right customer.
– Marketing user can easily reach to the right customer at the right time.
– Marketing user know who could be the best audience for each campaign.
– He can easily identify the customer requirement so he delivers the perfect content to every customer.

Salesforce Einstein enables everyone to discover new ways, predict outcomes so help in decision making, recommend next steps, and automates most of your activities so that you can spend most of your time in building strong relationship with customers rather than making entries in system.

What will AI give me that I didn’t already have?

Predictive scoring -Predictive lead scoring gives each sales lead a score representing the likelihood it will convert into an opportunity. You also get the reasons

behind the score – for instance the lead source, the industry, or some other factor is an especially strong indicator that a lead will or won’t convert.

Forecasting -AI can also be used to predict the future value of something, like a stock portfolio or a real estate investment. If you’re a sales manager, AI can predict your quarterly bookings and let you know ahead of time whether or not your team is on track to meet its quota.

Recommendations – Anyone who shops online knows that AI makes suggestions for retail purchases, but it can also make smart recommendations for any other product or service category from business software to tax consulting to cargo containers. And AI can also recommend things other than products – for instance, which white paper you should email a prospect in order to optimize your chance to close a deal.

Who can use AI in the enterprise

Anyone in organization can easily use AI to analyze their data, predict and plan next steps, and automate their tasks and decisions. With Einstein’s comprehensive AI for CRM:

• Sales can anticipate next opportunities and exceed customer expectations by knowing what a customer needs before the customer does
• Service can deliver proactive service by anticipating cases and resolving issues before they become problems
• Marketing can create predictive journeys and personalize customer experiences like never before
• IT can embed intelligence everywhere and create smarter apps for employees and customers

What is Machine Learning

Machine learning is the core driver of AI. It’s the concept of having computers learn from data with minimal programming.
