It&rsquo;s likely to be an expensive, technical showcase phone released as a celebratory model.</p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1"><span class="s1"><a href="https://www.digitaltrends.com/mobile/iphone-7s-news/">The iPhone 7S and 7S Plus</a></span>&nbsp;are expected to be very different. A lot of the information on the iPhone X is&nbsp;up in the air, but what we&rsquo;re hearing sure keeps us interested. Very interested. Here&rsquo;s&nbsp;what we&rsquo;ve learned so far about the iPhone X.</p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/apple-september-12-event-wide-720x720.jpg" alt="Iphone X, Iphone 8 event 12 September 2017" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p2"><strong>Release date, name, and price</strong></p> <p class="p1">Whatever it&rsquo;s called, it&rsquo;s probably going to be expensive, with many suggesting it may cost in excess of $1,000. Goldman Sachs analyst Simona Jankowski has a slightly more precise prediction, suggesting that the 128GB version of the device will come at $999, while the 256GB version will sit in at $1,099, according to a report from&nbsp;<a href="http://www.businessinsider.com/goldman-sachs-says-the-iphone-8-price-will-be-1000-2017-5"><span class="s1">Business Insider</span></a>.

It&rsquo;s possible the device will be called the iPhone X, the iPhone 8, or even the iPhone Decade Edition, as a&nbsp;<a href="http://www.slashleaks.com/l/screen-protector-manufacturer-suggests-iphone-8-will-be-called-decade-edition"><span class="s1">leaked screen protector</span></a>, and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ubergizmo.com/2017/06/iphone-8-could-launch-in-october/?utm_source=mainrss"><span class="s1">Finisar</span></a>, a laser manufacturer that&rsquo;s expected to supply the iPhone&rsquo;s depth-sensing camera component, claim.</p> <p class="p1">&nbsp;</p> <p class="p1">According to a&nbsp;<a href="https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-08-30/how-apple-plans-to-change-the-way-you-use-the-next-iphone"><span class="s1">Bloomberg report</span></a>, the iPhone 8 will have a crisper screen that takes up almost the entire front.</p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iphone%20X%20draft.jpg" alt="Iphone X Draft design" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1"><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iphone8597888c44c6e4-1-310x227.jpg" alt="iphone 8 draft" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iphone85978930914645-310x266.jpg" alt="iphone 8" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iphone-8-panel-425x318.jpg" alt="iphone X sim " width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iphone-8-sim-leak-720x480.jpg" alt="Iphone X Sim" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p class="p1"><img src="http://www.eday-kh.com/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/iPhone-8-Nodus-Render.jpg" alt="Iphone X" width="100%" height="100%" /></p>2017-09-03T01:46:23+08:00Blog:8http://eday-kh.com/online-marketplaces-in-cambodia-offering-stunning-christmas-salesOnline marketplaces in Cambodia offering stunning Christmas sales<p><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/christmas-sales-offering.jpg" alt="" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p>Christmas is just round the corner and preparations are in full swing.

The world is fast becoming a global village thanks to the removal of boundaries through the internet. News spreads from one corner of the world to the other in the blink of an eye. Thanks to the internet, the lifestyles of people are also changing.</p> <p><strong>How ecommerce is changing lifestyles of the masses?</strong></p> <p>The developed countries like USA and UK have a mature ecommerce industry. Online shopping is a norm in such places. People don&rsquo;t visit brick and mortar stores but just order stuff online and get it delivered to their homes, in the process, saving some precious time.</p> <p>Unlike such developed countries, the ecommerce in Cambodia is just starting off. While it is late to join the party, it is better late than never. The number of internet subscribers in on the high. The number of mobile phone subscribers is also increasing. With the advent of 3G and 4G technology, what this means is that the masses will have access to blazing fast internet on their fingertips. This fact is enough to see what a huge impact internet can make in the way people live their lives. Online shopping websites like <a href="http://www.kaymu.com.kh/">Kaymu</a> and <a href="http://www.eday-kh.com/">Eday-kh</a> are starting off and there are several others who are garnering positive response from Cambodians. This warm reception is proof enough that with the right investments and strategies, the ecommerce in Cambodia can reach unappalled heights.</p> <p><strong>Factors which will ensure the success of online marketplaces in Cambodia</strong></p> <p><strong><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/marketplaces2.png.jpg" alt="" width="100%" height="100%" /></strong></p> <p><strong>Trust </strong></p> <p>A lot of online marketplaces have popped up in recent years but not many have been successful. This is because a lot of them have failed to earn the trust of the customers. Trustworthiness is the key factor in determining the success of the venture. No one can share their private details or shop on a website in which they don&rsquo;t trust.</p> <p><strong>Easy Modes of Payment</strong></p> <p>&nbsp;Online marketplaces have to ensure that Cambodians have access to easy modes of payment. After trust, facilitation of customers is a key factor in the success of any online marketplace. Modes of payment like <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cash_on_delivery">Cash on Delivery</a> allows customers to pay once the order reaches their doorsteps. What this does is that it also promotes trust and confidence in the buyer.</p> <p><strong>Return Policies</strong></p> <p>One of the biggest reasons people don&rsquo;t buy online in Cambodia is because of the poor return policies. On electronic items, warranties are a must otherwise people just won&rsquo;t buy. Similarly, when buying clothes online, you have to ensure that sizes are a perfect fit. And if not, there should be easy return policies. If a product is faulty or doesn&rsquo;t do what it claims to do, returning it is the basic right of customer. In brick and mortar stores, this is a norm. A lot of online marketplaces are a bit hesitant to do this as they fear high costs, but this is a key factor in determining the success of online marketplace in Cambodia.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>By: Khuram Shahzad</strong></p>2015-12-03T06:34:26+08:00Blog:6http://eday-kh.com/what-is-core-valueWhat is a Core Value?<p><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/edaykh-corevalue.png" alt="" width="100%" height="NaN" /></p> <p>The core values of an organization are those values we hold which form the foundation on which we perform work and conduct ourselves.&nbsp; We have an entire universe of values, but some of them are so primary, so important to us that through out the changes in society, government, politics, and technology they are STILL the core values we will abide by.&nbsp; In an ever-changing world, core values are constant.&nbsp; Core values are not descriptions of the work we do or the strategies we employ to accomplish our mission.&nbsp; The values underlie our work, how interact with each other, and which strategies we employ to fulfill our mission.&nbsp; The core values are the basic elements of how we go about our work.&nbsp; They are the practices we use (or should be using) every day in everything we do.</p> <h2><strong>Core Values About Life</strong></h2> <p>Often, when you hear someone discuss why they fell in love with a spouse, they will mention that they have the same values. In this case, they are often talking about core values, or internal beliefs that dictate how life is to be lived.&nbsp;</p> <p>Some examples of core values people might have about life include:</p> <ul> <li>A belief, or lack thereof, in God and/or an affiliation with a religious institution</li> <li>A belief in being a good steward of resources and in exercising frugality</li> <li>A belief that family is of fundamental importance</li> <li>A belief that honesty is always the best policy and that trust has to be earned</li> <li>A belief in maintaining a healthy work/life balance</li> </ul> <p>Parents also try to instill these types of positive core values in children.</p> <p>Of course, core values don't always have to be positive. Some people may be driven by self-interest or greed, and these are core values too if they dictate the way the people live their lives.&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Corporate Core Values</strong></h2> <p>Companies can have core values as well. These are the guiding principles that help to define how the corporation would behave. They are usually expressed in the corporation's mission statement.</p> <p>Some examples of core values for a company might include:</p> <ul> <li>A commitment to sustainability and to acting in an environmentally friendly way. Companies like Patagonia and Ben &amp; Jerry's have environmental sustainability as a core value.&nbsp;</li> <li>A commitment to innovation and excellence. Apple Computer is perhaps best known for having a commitment to innovation as a core value. This is embodied by their "Think Different" motto.&nbsp;</li> <li>A commitment to doing good for the whole. Google, for example, believes in making a great search engine and building a great company without being evil.&nbsp;</li> </ul> <p>As you can see, many of the core values that companies have are similar to those that individuals might choose as guiding principles as well.</p> <p>Companies may also have negative core values as well. Companies that are solely motivated by profit, such as tobacco companies who lied to their customers about the dangers of smoking, may have been driven by core values of self-interest and an overly strong profit motive.&nbsp;</p> <h2><strong>Some Types of Core Values</strong></h2> <p>There are countless types of core values, as you can see, so you will need to choose the ones that are right for you or your organization.</p> <p>Here are some examples of core values from which you may wish to choose:</p> <ul> <li>Dependable</li> <li>Reliable</li> <li>Loyal</li> <li>Committed</li> <li>Open-minded</li> <li>Consistent</li> <li>Honest</li> <li>Efficient</li> <li>Innovative</li> <li>Creative</li> <li>Humorous</li> <li>Fun-loving</li> <li>Adventurous</li> <li>Motivated</li> <li>Positive</li> <li>Optimistic</li> <li>Inspiring</li> <li>Passionate</li> <li>Respectful</li> <li>Athletic</li> <li>Fit</li> <li>Courageous</li> <li>Educated</li> <li>Respected</li> <li>Loving&nbsp;</li> <li>Nurturing</li> </ul> <h2><strong>Identifying Core Values</strong></h2> <p>While some people or companies might expressly publish their core values, often the best way to identify these values is to which how they act and behave. A core value is only a true core value if it has an active influence and if the people or company manage to live by it, at least most of the time.&nbsp;</p> <p>We have discussed why core values are important and some strategies for setting core values. You may be wondering: what do core values look like? Below is a list of 10 core values that are common across organizations in different industries:</p> <ul> <li>Accountability &ndash; Acknowledging and assuming responsibility for actions, products, decisions, and policies. It can be applied to both individual accountability on the part of employees and accountability of the company as a whole.</li> <li>Balance &ndash; Taking a proactive stand to create and maintain a healthy work-life balance for workers.</li> <li>Commitment &ndash; Committing to great product, service, and other initiatives that impact lives within and outside the organization.</li> <li>Community &ndash;Contributing to society and demonstrating corporate social responsibility.</li> <li>Diversity &ndash; respecting the diversity and giving the best of composition. Establishing an employee equity program.</li> <li>Empowerment &ndash; Encouraging employees to take initiative and give the best. Adopting an error-embracing environment to empower employees to lead and make decisions.</li> <li>Innovation &ndash; Pursuing new creative ideas that have the potential to change the world.</li> <li>Integrity &ndash; Acting with honesty and honor without compromising the truth</li> <li>Ownership &ndash; Taking care of the company and customers as they were one&rsquo;s own.</li> <li>Safety &ndash; ensuring the health and safety of employees and going beyond the legal requirements to provide an accident-free workplace.</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Reference:&nbsp;<br /><a href="http://7geese.com/benefits-of-having-core-values-and-how-to-set-them-in-your-organization/">http://7geese.com/benefits-of-having-core-values-and-how-to-set-them-in-your-organization/</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.nps.gov/training/uc/whcv.htm">http://www.nps.gov/training/uc/whcv.htm</a></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>2015-09-16T03:17:59+08:00Blog:5http://eday-kh.com/video-have-you-found-a-start-up-steav-jobs-brainstorming-will-give-you-a-show-caseVideo: Have you found a start-up?

It is possible to start a business with very little money, if you have the right combination of skills, work ethic&nbsp;and marketing know-how.</p> <p>According to Chris Guillebeau, author of&nbsp;<a href="http://100startup.com/" target="_blank"><em>The $100 Startup</em></a>, &ldquo;To succeed in a business project, especially one you&rsquo;re excited about, it helps to think carefully about all the skills you have that could be helpful to others and particularly about the combination of those skills.&rdquo;</p> <p>Follow these simple guidelines to start a business when you have little to no money. Learn&nbsp;<a href="http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/201360">how to make money</a>&nbsp;today.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>1. Make something.</strong></p> <p>Yes, making something does take an initial cost in supplies, but oftentimes, these products can be sold for many times over their actual cost. What you decide to make is up to you, but there are several places you can sell your handmade options online:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://www.abesmarket.com/" target="_blank">Abe&rsquo;s Market</a>&nbsp;deals in natural and organic goods, such as lotions, candles, granola, and more.</li> <li><a href="http://etsy.com/" target="_blank">Etsy&nbsp;</a>is one of the largest online markets for almost anything homemade, from jewelry to wooden toys for kids.</li> <li><a href="http://www.bonanza.com/" target="_blank">Bonanza</a>&nbsp;is another growing handmade marketplace, similar to Etsy. According to&nbsp;<a href="http://www.pcworld.com/article/255698/the_5_best_online_marketplaces_for_selling_handmade_goods.html" target="_blank">PC World</a>, it boasts over 10 million visits per month.</li> <li><a href="http://ebay.com/" target="_blank">eBay</a>&nbsp;is one of the biggest online ecommerce marketplaces in the world, and its streamlined store options, easy checkout through Paypal, and customizable listing options make it a great choice for selling items.</li> </ul> <p>Many business owners sell their products on multiple platforms to get the most exposure possible. It is important, however, to make sure your inventory stays updated on all sites you have a storefront on. If you want to learn about more resources for selling homemade items, check out this&nbsp;<a href="http://lifehacker.com/how-can-i-sell-my-homemade-stuff-1440113633" target="_blank">Lifehacker</a>&nbsp;post.</p> <div class="YAD-3989d31c-0abd-3243-8503-6918e26aed84 rt-elem section-large">&nbsp;</div> <p dir="ltr"><strong>2. Resell something.</strong></p> <p>If you don&rsquo;t want to make anything (or you don&rsquo;t consider yourself a creative person), many business owners have grown large businesses just be reselling products that have already been made. This can be done through a variety of ways or channels:</p> <ul> <li>Drop shipping:&nbsp;Set up an online store and partner with drop-shipping companies that will do all the order fulfillment for you. Online ecommerce platform&nbsp;<a href="https://ecommerce.shopify.com/guides/dropshipping" target="_blank">Shopify</a>&nbsp;has a great drop shipping guide, and Tim Ferriss does a good job of explaining drop shipping in his well-known book,&nbsp;<a href="http://fourhourworkweek.com/" target="_blank"><em>The Four Hour Work Week.</em></a></li> <li>Thrift stores and&nbsp;garage sales:&nbsp;If you know where to look, you can find items at thrift stores, antique shops, flea markets&nbsp;and garage sales and resell them online or in your local community for more than you purchased them for. One extremely successful example of this is Sophia Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal. Amoruso started buying and reselling vintage and unique fashion pieces on eBay, and her company has grown to a net income of $24 million in 2011 with over 200 employees. Her book,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.nastygal.com/accessories/girlboss-book" target="_blank"><em>#GIRLBOSS</em></a>, is in inspiring look into how she got started.</li> </ul> <p dir="ltr"><strong>3. Sell your services.</strong></p> <p>One way to start a business with little to no startup capital is to sell your services, instead of a physical product. There&rsquo;s a huge variety of services you can offer, depending on your background and interests.</p> <p>Some will require&nbsp;advanced degrees, such as accounting, while others require little more than a working knowledge of how it&rsquo;s done (such as&nbsp;babysitting, lawn mowing&nbsp;or personal assistance).</p> <p>Because you are selling your services, you will need a branding plan to make sure your name and company gets in front of the people who may need the service. Some places that are free for promoting your services include Fiverr, Craigslist, Elance, Taskrabbit&nbsp;and Skillshare.</p> <p>It&rsquo;s also useful to have a website to show examples of your work, list your experience, and blog about your industry to draw visitors.

Barter to get what you need.</strong></p> <p>Unfortunately, it&rsquo;s extremely hard to start a business without any type of funds at all. Even creating a freelance-writing business utilizing Elance and a free Wordpress&nbsp;or Wix website will&nbsp;still require a computer to work on&nbsp;as well as Internet. However, there are ways to get supplies you need for starting your business without money.</p> <p>For instance, if you find yourself in need of a used laptop, try to barter for it. Build a new website for a used electronics supplier, or offer babysitting services to your neighbor for their old Macbook.</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>5. Utilize low-cost services.</strong></p> <p>As mentioned previously, you can use sites such as Fiverr or Elance to advertise your products and services on, but you can also use these platforms to build up your own company. For instance, many designers offer $5 to $25&nbsp;<a href="https://www.fiverr.com/categories/graphics-design/creative-logo-design/#layout=auto&amp;page=1" target="_blank">logo designs</a>&nbsp;(that come with free revisions). Sort by reviews and look at past examples to find a designer or service provider that matches your style.</p> <p>This is a great way to get branding materials, printed items (<a href="http://vistaprint.com/" target="_blank">Vistaprint</a>and&nbsp;<a href="http://www.zazzle.com/" target="_blank">Zazzle</a>&nbsp;are great places to buy personalized items), or other needed items without much cost. And for additional savings, be sure to look for coupon codes on sites such as&nbsp;RetailMeNot before checking out at any online retailer!</p> <p>Starting a business requires ingenuity and a passion for what you are doing. Once you find yourself doing something you enjoy, you will be more likely to find ways to make it all come together.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>reference:&nbsp;http://www.entrepreneur.com/</p>2015-05-23T04:25:53+08:00Blog:3http://eday-kh.com/internet-of-thing-iot-what-do-you-know-about-itInternet of thing (IoT): what do you know about it?<p><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/internet-of-things-650.jpg" alt="" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p>The <strong>Internet of Things</strong> (<strong>IoT</strong>) is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors and connectivity to enable it to achieve greater value and service by exchanging data with the manufacturer, operator and/or other connected devices. Each thing is uniquely identifiable through its embedded computing system but is able to interoperate within the existing <a title="Internet" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet">Internet</a> infrastructure.</p> <p>The term &ldquo;Internet of Things&rdquo; was first documented by a <a title="United Kingdom" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom">British</a> visionary, <a title="Kevin Ashton" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Ashton">Kevin Ashton</a>, in 1999. Typically, IoT is expected to offer advanced connectivity of devices, systems, and services that goes beyond <a title="Machine to machine" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Machine_to_machine">machine-to-machine communications (M2M)</a> and covers a variety of protocols, domains, and applications.The interconnection of these embedded devices (including <a title="Smart objects" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_objects">smart objects</a>), is expected to usher in automation in nearly all fields, while also enabling advanced applications like a <a title="Smart grid" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_grid">Smart Grid</a>.</p> <p>Things, in the IoT, can refer to a wide variety of devices such as heart monitoring implants, <a title="Biochip" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biochip">biochip</a> transponders on farm animals, electric clams in coastal waters, automobiles with built-in sensors, or field operation devices that assist fire-fighters in search and rescue. These devices collect useful data with the help of various existing technologies and then autonomously flow the data between other devices. Current market examples include <a title="Smart thermostat" href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_thermostat">smart thermostat</a> systems and washer/dryers that utilize Wi-Fi for remote monitoring.</p> <p>Besides the plethora of new application areas for Internet connected automation to expand into, IoT is also expected to generate large amounts of data from diverse locations that is aggregated very quickly, thereby increasing the need to better index, store and process such data.</p> <p><strong>Up to now</strong></p> <p>Anis Uzzaman is the general partner and founding member of Silicon Valley-based <a href="http://www.fenoxvc.com/">Fenox Venture Capital</a>.

At <a href="http://events.techinasia.com/sg2015/">Tech in Asia Singapore 2015</a> today, Uzzaman took to the stage to deliver a keynote speech on Silicon Valley trends and how they can relate to us over here in Asia.</p> <p><strong>Now&rsquo;s the time to put your hardware online</strong></p> <p>The Internet of Things (IoT) is something that everyone, <a class="glossaryLink " title="Glossary: Startup" href="https://www.techinasia.com/startup-dictionary/startup/" target="_blank" data-tooltip="&lt;h4 class=glossaryItemTitle&gt;Startup&lt;/h4&gt;A startup is a &quot;temporary organization used to search for a repeatable and scalable business model,&quot; says Steve Blank, author of&nbsp;&lt;em&gt;Four Steps to the Epiphany.&lt;/em&gt;&nbsp;When a business model is repeatable,(...) &lt;strong&gt;&lt;a class=&quot;glossaryTooltipMoreLink&quot; href=&quot;https://www.techinasia.com/startup-dictionary/startup/&quot;&gt;Term details&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;">startups</a> and investors alike, should be getting into, said Uzzaman in his keynote. &ldquo;With IoT, you can be very different, and you can build a unique product,&rdquo; he says. He told the audience why they shouldn&rsquo;t be reinventing the wheel in areas like chat apps, traditional <a class="glossaryLink " title="Glossary: Ecommerce" href="https://www.techinasia.com/startup-dictionary/ecommerce/" target="_blank" data-tooltip="&lt;h4 class=glossaryItemTitle&gt;Ecommerce&lt;/h4&gt;Ecommerce refers to the buying and selling of goods and services over the internet. There are a few primary modes of ecommerce.

So far in 2015, that number has grown to 15.8 billion, and will continue to rise quickly. According to him, by 2020, IoT will represent a US$1.9 trillion component of the global economy. Uzzaman says Fenox has made a few plays in this space, one of which was its decision to invest in <a href="https://www.edyn.com/">EDYN</a>, a smart garden system that tracks environmental conditions.</p> <p><strong>Areas of improvement</strong></p> <p>Uzzaman says that IoT can help the world improve in many ways. He says that new healthcare IT is the wave of the future in terms of solutions for hospitals, children, and elderly people.</p> <p>Additionally, the manufacturing industry is teed up to benefit from IoT. Production management is something that can be improved dramatically all over the world. Uzzaman also says the possibilities for IoT aiding retail businesses is nearly limitless.</p> <p>Wearables are poised to grow wildly in popularity in the US and Asia alike, says Uzzaman. For this reason, Fenox invested in a company called <a href="https://www.getameta.com/">META</a>, a firm that is at the forefront of <a class="glossaryLink " title="Glossary: Augmented reality" href="https://www.techinasia.com/startup-dictionary/augmented-reality/" target="_blank" data-tooltip="&lt;h4 class=glossaryItemTitle&gt;Augmented reality&lt;/h4&gt;Augmented reality (AR) is a method of viewing a real world environment via a visor or screen, with additional, computer generated elements superimposed on it.

He gives honorable mentions to Jawbone&rsquo;s fitness band, and to Google for patenting a&nbsp;digital deodorant. Additionally, he laudes Google for looking into a possible cure for cancer in the form of a wearable. He says:</p> <p style="padding-left: 30px;"><span style="font-size: 11pt;">&Prime;</span>The idea is that you wear the device on your arm and it produces acoustics that hit your blood cells in a way so that they won&rsquo;t produce enzymes that cause cancer.<span style="font-size: 12pt;">&Prime;</span></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;reference: http://en.wikipedia.org,https://www.techinasia.com</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>2015-05-08T07:30:19+08:00Blog:2http://eday-kh.com/starting-a-business-today-in-10-simple-stepsStarting a Business Today in 10 simple steps<p><img src="/Content/Images/uploaded/blog/Start_up.gif" alt="" width="100%" height="100%" /></p> <p>There&rsquo;s a saying that you have to &ldquo;fake it till you make it,&rdquo; in life and in business. However, you also hear&nbsp;about wantrepreneurs. So what&rsquo;s the difference? The real difference to me is in the action.</p> <p>If you want to get started, but you don&rsquo;t know how to begin from zero, here is a simple and effective approach.&nbsp;Follow these 10 step-by-step instructions to get started on your business today.</p> <h2><strong>1. Write down your vision.</strong></h2> <p>You can&rsquo;t get somewhere without knowing what the vision for your business and your life is. While the end result of your business will probably look a little different than your initial vision, you have to have the end result in mind to start. What do you want to do with your business? Try answering these three simple questions about your product or service and you&rsquo;ll have a business vision nailed:</p> <ul> <li>What is it?</li> <li>What do I get?</li> <li>How do I get it?</li> </ul> <h2><strong>2. Research your market.</strong></h2> <p>This is such a boring step. There&rsquo;s no way around it.&nbsp;It&rsquo;s unsexy and it&rsquo;s in depth. It&rsquo;s for those exact reasons many well-intentioned first-timers at entrepreneurship will want to skip over this part.</p> <p>Sure, you asked your family and a few friends and they say your idea is great, so you&rsquo;ve got a market, right? Wrong. You need to look back at the questions that help you with your vision and drill into them again.</p> <p>What is it, and more important&nbsp;for your research, why would someone want it? What do I get from you that I can&rsquo;t get from someone else or something else? How am I getting it and how is that delivery method better, cheaper, faster or easier for me? These are all helpful questions to see where the market is for your business and what pain points you&rsquo;ll need to solve for your market with your offering.</p> <h2><strong>3. Create something you can sell.</strong></h2> <p>If you can&rsquo;t solve a problem for your market, you aren&rsquo;t going to make any sales large enough to sustain a business. It&rsquo;s that simple. Make sure whatever your business is offering, it solves a problem, because you can market and sell the solution to that problem for a viable business.</p> <h2><strong>4. Get a website.</strong></h2> <p>Now that you&rsquo;ve figured out your market and product offering, you&rsquo;ll need a website. It doesn&rsquo;t matter if you&rsquo;re a retail or online business, both need a website no matter what.</p> <p>You don&rsquo;t have to spend a fortune on a website to start. Purchase a domain from a site such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.godaddy.com/" target="_blank">GoDaddy</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.hostgator.com/" target="_blank">Host Gator</a>. If you&rsquo;re handy with<a href="http://www.wordpress.org/" target="_blank">WordPress</a>, you can install a theme for free or a small fee and get started. If you aren&rsquo;t handy with WordPress, use a build-it yourself, idiot-proof site-building service such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.weebly.com/" target="_blank">Weebly</a>.</p> <p>If you really don&rsquo;t want to deal with it, look to&nbsp;<a href="http://www.elance.com/" target="_blank">Elance</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.odesk.com/" target="_blank">Odesk</a>&nbsp;and outsource your website design.</p> <h2><strong>5. Outline your automation.</strong></h2> <p>These days, most businesses require some level of marketing and sales automation to really scale. You hear a lot about passive income, and getting your marketing and sales processes as automated as possible will help you maximize the opportunities for truly passive income. Even if you don&rsquo;t want a passive income business and are actively planning to market your business, you&rsquo;re still going to want things such as product registration, order tracking and purchases to have some level of automation. Examples include&nbsp;a thank you email, confirmation or upsell offer.</p> <p>Think about the total user experience from visit to purchase on your site and outline what you think are good points for automated messaging or sales offers. Build it on paper ahead of time. Depending on the size of your budget and needs, look into the sales and marketing automation standard for small businesses,&nbsp;<a href="http://www.infusionsoft.com/" target="_blank">Infusionsoft</a>.</p> <h2><strong>6. Set up a sales funnel.</strong></h2> <p>If you don&rsquo;t need the robust offering of a site such as Infusionsoft just yet for your business, look at sales funnel-specific software programs such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.leadpages.com/" target="_blank">Lead Pages</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.clickfunnel.com/" target="_blank">Click Funnel</a>. These plug and play into email service providers and payment processing vendors and can be a nice option for small businesses just starting out until they&rsquo;re ready to scale to bigger platforms.</p> <h2><strong>7. Set up an email opt-in.&nbsp;</strong></h2> <p>First, you&rsquo;ll need an email service, such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.aweber.com/" target="_blank">AWeber</a>&nbsp;or&nbsp;<a href="http://www.mailchimp.com/" target="_blank">MailChimp</a>, or if you have Infusionsoft or another bigger service provider such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.marketo.com/" target="_blank">Marketo</a>, email will be part of the platform already. Once you have your email service, you&rsquo;ll want to ensure there are plenty of places for people to opt-in to your email list on your website, on your landing pages from your sales funnel and anywhere else it&rsquo;s appropriate. The key to a great, scalable business is a healthy, robust email app.</p> <h2><strong>8. Start a&nbsp;Facebook page.</strong></h2> <p>Facebook is a great, free tool for spreading brand awareness and linking to your landing pages and website. If you create and curate really valuable content consistently, you&rsquo;ll build up a following that can help drive your business and your brand.</p> <h2><strong>9. Create valuable, shareable content.</strong></h2> <p>You can post your content on your website, syndicate it through services such as&nbsp;<a href="http://www.rebelmouse.com/" target="_blank">Rebel Mouse</a>&nbsp;and post to your own Facebook page. However, if you want the word to really spread, make sure each piece you post is easily sharable so you can build organic traffic and word of mouth.</p> <h2><strong>10. Refine, tweak and improve as you go.</strong></h2> <p>You&rsquo;ll never be done, but follow the previous nine steps and you should be on your way to establishing your business and your plan of action. As you implement each step, remember that you&rsquo;ll need to continuously learn from each part of the process to tweak and improve as you go. The more you learn and make corrections, the better your business will be positioned for success in the long term.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Reference:&nbsp;http://www.entrepreneur.com</p>2015-04-22T04:48:59+08:00Blog:1http://eday-kh.com/17-desk-stretches-that-might-save-your-life17 Desk Stretches that might save your life<p>Sitting all day isn&rsquo;t good for you &ndash; and we&rsquo;re not just talking about it making you stir crazy.&nbsp;</p> <p>Being stuck at your desk doesn&rsquo;t just make it hard to focus -- it can ultimately&nbsp;<a href="http://apps.washingtonpost.com/g/page/national/the-health-hazards-of-sitting/750/">cause damage</a>&nbsp;to your spine, muscles, circulation and heart.
