While starting to work from home I started to wonder if I could use my skills on a wider scene. I started researching and came to the conclusion that I could tap the huge open market for content. Yes folks most of the content on websites is poorly written. I started contacting the website owners individually and surprise, surprise they were ready to get it changed.
I just did simple things. I sent a sample text to them and it was an improvement on their text on their website. So it was relevant to them and it was evidence that their content could be better. I got an unbelievable response. 90% response is really good for online interaction, and I could convert almost 70% of all responses. I had 10 clients within a month and was really challenged, and was working 18 hours a day. The income also expanded and I could hire one person to help me. Slowly I built up the list and had almost 20 clients giving me regular business. I also added keyword research which was free for the clients. Then I realized that unknowingly I had started a business and was making profits. Being professional I went ahead and registered my company, designed a logo and did all background work. Now I am working on building my own website. The information I am providing can be crucial for people working online. You just need a bit of managing and writing skills to take you forward.
One of the biggest questions that seem to be hovering in the minds of You Tube users is how to turn their You Tube usage into a money making mechanism? Everybody seems to know that it is essential that you become a You Tube partner for your videos to really start making money for you. How does one become a You Tube partner?
Create an account
Quite naturally if you want to become a Youtube partner, you will need to have a You Tube account. Create an account with a username that is catchy and short and sweet to remember. Your username should in some way reflect the essence of your channel. If you want to create a channel on teenage fashion trends think of usernames which most definitely use the terms teens and trends. Your username could be something as simple as TeenTrends12 or Teenends or something similar. Get creative with the username because more often than not it can make or break your Youtube presence.
Always add a description to your profile. Tell the people briefly what to expect from your channel. It is not always great to keep the masses in the dark. If people view your channel thinking they are going to get parent tips on how to handle teenagers and end up viewing teenage fashion you have earned yourself a negative review. A description helps you attract the right kind of audience. If you have more than 500 followers on your channel, You Tube will be more than happy to pay you for advertising on your channel
Keep the content original and interesting
Choose a topic for your channel and start making videos. It is not necessary that your videos look professional the first time around. Making videos is a learning curve. As and when you upload videos, comments of viewers and your own experience will guide you on how to improve the quality of the videos you upload. Remember to keep your content original. Nobody likes copied videos. As you get more and more topics to record invest in a tripod or ask a friend to help you with the recording. Make sure you have enough light while recording the videos.
Update your channel regularly. Make sure your viewers have something new to look forward to every time.
Promote your channel
You will attract followers to your Youtube channel only if they know it exists. Every time you upload your video talk about it on facebook, twitter and any other social networking site. The more buzz you create about the channel the better for you. The amount of money you make from your Youtube channel is directly dependent on its popularity. Encourage your friends to promote your channel too. Make sure you have enough content to keep uploading on your channel.
Once your Youtube channel has gotten more than five hundred followers you are now ready to enjoy the benefit of your channel making money for you.

Apple Pay launched by apple has seen many road blocks ahead with consumers not ready for the change.So what can be the solution to the threats that might ruin the launch of the newest technology by Apple? Here are a few would be solutions.
Apple needs to make this payment method cheap enough to counter the upcoming challenges. Customers do not like to pay for technology they do not yet want.
The Apple Pay technology should be modeled to work on older iPhone. This will help to consolidate the current situation. They have to also have to tackle the Google Wallet challenge with new features which are hard to imitate.
Somewhere in the future Apple has to let go “Pay for all Services” value in order to survive in the future market dynamics.
Apple Pay needs to be more secure. The current security features are good for in app purchase but the security needs to be more robust at retail outlets.
Planning for failure of Apple Pay will keep Apple Inc. in good stead.
Set aside some part of revenue for entering in new emerging markets, which are mainly created by disruptive technology.
So we have finally come to the conclusion that Apple Pay is a disruptive technology. Presently it satisfies all conditions of (1) Low margins of Profit (2) Simpler, cheaper and low performance(3) Most valued customers do not want it now and (4) The market for the Apple Pay is still new and emerging. Also it is positive on all five guiding principles of Disruptive Technology.
Well according to the Wall Street Journal Australian economy improved in March, they actually said a “…bright spot for economy..” I certainly hope so. One of my kids is talking about having her own business, a cake & coffee shop.
Apparently, after doing a bit of internet surfing, in Australia setting up a business can be down in two days, which is fantastic from a business viewpoint but a little scary from a dads point of view! Mind you my daughter seems to be on the way to organising herself very well. We sat down last night and looked at her provincial plans. I must admit I was impressed, turns out she has been in touch with the Australian Government Business Site them and following their guidelines has come up with what seems to me a good business plan. I have been asked to find her an accountant to work with so putting some networking calls in to some old colleagues and see what recommendations come back.
Networking, the youngsters seem to think its is a term they invented, although with the internet it is so much easier and quicker to do so. There are networking clubs, degrees in networking and so on and so forth. Don’t get me wrong I think it is an essential tool in business, just seems to exploded and maybe some care should be taken in how much is shared. Just a thought, what do others think?
Well my daughter has connected with Women’s Network Australia and appears to be getting some pretty solid advice from them alongside some interesting training and article insights. I took a look at the site and found some interesting facts:
Women own almost half of all home-based businesses and one-third of businesses operating from other locations.
Women setting up business from home is the fastest growing sector of the Australian economy.
Women make or influence 80% of all purchasing decisions.
94% of all Australian businesses have an annual turnover of less than $2 million.
Women owned businesses have less external debt, are more profitable and profitable much earlier than those owned by men.
I especially like the last point! I have been asked to go with her to view some properties and give my opinion. I was rather worried about how my children would cope in the grown up world but I must admit I am impressed by what I have seen so far. It seems we are both learning and that is fine by me.

You are starting to fear going to work. The face of your boss gives you stress. So, the answer seems to be to change the job. But do not rush into it.
Just try to ask a few questions to yourself, before deciding to quit.
Know the real reason for your anxiety – Most of the times the concerns are more specific. Get the answer. Top 5 reasons are: (1) you do not get along well with your Manager.
(2) You think nobody sees you as an asset. (3) No promotions for you. (4) Restructuring has changed your role. You used to love the earlier role. (5) A general need for change.
All the above reasons do not require quitting. So unless reason is boredom from current job or a general lack of interest in the area of work stop and think. You just might need a holiday to refresh.
Do you have something better to do? – Just try to answer whether you have better things to do. If not you are sure to get stuck even after quitting. If you have better plans that are workable then it is fine to quit. Also try to re asses your skills. You might need new skills. Learn new skills, a skilled worker is one who does not stop learning ever.
The amount of money you need – This is the most crucial. Quitting invariably leads to financial loss. You might have to start a rung lower. These are not rosy times. So, do consider this factor.
If you will not regret taking the decision and you see yourself in a better mental, physical and financial position in 10 years then go ahead.
Salary Packaging might sound like a simple enough construct, but it can get rather complicated if you are not aware of what you are getting yourself into. Your employer will make sure that you sign the contract- but you need to know just what that contract means (they throw in a lot of jargon to confuse you, but don’t let that defeat you- ever).
Many people choose to get salary packaging because of the fact that it can help you save some money, even after you pay taxes. A salary package, essentially, will entitle you to get some services and products from your employee directly. You will have to agree to a cut in your pre-tax salary for this, though. It’s a contract that is drawn between the employer and the employee- so you still have the right to say no. It might reduce the amount of money you get as salary, but there are some undeniable benefits to the same.
There are some limitations on the kind of benefits the company can provide you, legally. If you and your company decide on a salary package together, make sure you get it in writing from the company. That way, you can avoid getting into any tax problems later!
There are a lot of people who might tell you that you will easily get a job once you have graduated from university. Well, don’t listen to them. You will get a job- but you will have to work hard for it!
First of all, you should start thinking about the kind of jobs you want and the industry you want to work in while you are still in university. This way, you will be able to use your position in the university and prepare yourself for the real world.
For instance, let’s say you want to get into the world of finance. You will obviously be getting a degree related to the field. You could maintain close contact with all the professors in the university who teach finance or related fields. They will have contacts who still work in the field, and you will be able to make use of them.
You should certainly try doing one or two internships during your university years. This will provide you with a real world view of the job, and it will help you build contacts. Socializing is incredibly important- knowing the right people will certainly take you places.
Almost all universities have their own career center- make use of these. They are actually more effective and efficient than you believe.
