The Mistakes Many Authors, Business Companies, And Online Book Sellers Do On Twitter

Bad marketing strategies on Twitter

Twitter is for success but bad marketing strategies can affect your business on Twitter

Twitter, one of the giants social media offers a variety of services to entrepreneurs, businessmen, including authors and online book publishers and sellers.

Once interested in someone’s product, books or like the activities of a particular organization that may attract the person to follow you.

It seems to some people that gaining thousands of Twitter followers mean success, dignity, respect and the flourishing of business which may give them probably the recognition they are looking for.

Unfortunately, some authors and booksellers follow other authors just to increase the number of their followers then later unfollow them.

These kinds of tricks are bad marketing strategies which can affect you as an author or your business, depending how long you are using such unproductive cheating game as a marketing strategy.

An author I was interested in and therefore featured his books on my blog did the same and I cancelled the idea of buying his book. I used that money to buy another book of an author we are not following each other on Twitter.

Many times people use the word ‘Common sense,’ I think ‘sense’ is not common. One needs to be very sincere, intelligent, and investigative to know that he is causing his own downfall.

Business

Microsoft to Acquire LinkedIn for $26.2 Billion

Microsoft on Monday announced it is acquiring LinkedIn, the social network for professionals, for a whopping sum of $26 billion — or $196 per share, in cash. The transactions, the companies say, has already been approved by both boards.

As part of the agreement, LinkedIn will get to keep its branding, and will become part of Microsoft’s productivity and business processes segment. Jeff Weiner will remain CEO of LinkedIn and now report to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella. In a statement, Nadella said: The LinkedIn team has grown a fantastic business centered on connecting the world’s professionals.

Together we can accelerate the growth of LinkedIn, as well as Microsoft Office 365 and Dynamics as we seek to empower every person and organization on the planet. LinkedIn has over 430M members on its network. LinkedIn’s purchase marks Microsoft’s 196th acquisition of another company — it is incidentally also it’s most expensive purchase. Four years ago, Weiner laughed at the idea of a Microsoft buyout.

According to Bloomberg, LinkedIn shares surged 49 percent in premarket trading in New York to $194.63. Microsoft fell 3.7 percent to $49.60.

Why I Will Not Sell My Blog For Money

FACE 4

We often hear that: The pen is mightier than the sword, truth is bitter than the bile etc. These sayings are true. I just love to write but never aware that many of my articles are like a sharp arrow piercing through the flesh of the ‘Evildoers.’

On April 16, 2016, I posted an article entitled  ‘Why I Stopped Writing For Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper.’ The article was about“Holland’s Professor Johan Van Dongen Challenging Belgium’s Scientist Guido van der Groen over the origins of Ebola, which was submitted to the editor of Diplomatic Aspects Newspaper and the article was published.

Unknowing after the publication, Belgium’s fears of reprisal and exposure of the truth over the two tied diseases, secretly contacted the editor without my knowledge to remove the article from the web. This is a significant evidence that an article can make bad people in our society uncomfortable. Yes, some articles sting more than the scorpion.

I have received many messages from Google alert, Facebook and other apps I have registered people trying to crawl or hack into my blog. Why are they making such efforts to enter my blog? Because this blog has certain  articles from the Dutch Microsurgeon and scientist Johan Van Dongen and writer Joel Savage which are making those in the corrupt health sectors and some politicians uncomfortable. Our articles are revealing too much of certain facts which supposed to be secret or confidential documents.

I can’t count the number of times I’ve changed my password, trying to secure and protect my blog against those unseen cyber thieves and rogues. Now that we know (Johan Van Dongen and Joel Savage) we shall continue to make life harder and uncomfortable for them. Even though I’ve no penny in my pocket, I will not sell my soul for money.

If you fear to die, the reason you wouldn’t like to speak against injustice, corruption, crime, including Aids and Ebola crimes, death will find you where ever you’ve hidden to take you away. Die in truth and dignity not in lies and hypocrisy. That’s our (Johan Van Dongen and Joel Savage) philosophy.

The Spectrum Of Business In Africa Through E-Commerce

Commerce 3

Small scale and large scale entrepreneurs have taken the advantage of the effectiveness of the media and technology, including e-commerce to promote and market products, reaching every corner of the globe without fatigue. What is e-commerce and how has it been beneficial to entrepreneurs?

Assuming you live in Asia, Europe or America, would you like to travel thousands of kilometers for a product you want desperately in South Africa? Taking such a journey is not only waste of time but also money. Remember time is money. Through the birth of modern technology, e-commerce acts as a facilitator in getting your message to the manufacturer to send the consumer whatever he is looking for online.

Thus; E-commerce is online shopping making it easier for consumers to purchase products via the internet from manufacturers. E-commence enhances business to reach beyond consumer base and access global markets like never before. Last year, November 18, delegates at the ‘Sixth Annual European Conference highlighted on the effect and impact of in E-commerce generally in Europe.

The European E-Commerce sector is said to worth an estimated 350 billion Euros and it is predicted to create 1.5 million jobs in Europe by 2018.  The writer takes a look at the impact and benefit of e-commerce in Africa’s business. The effect of E-commerce business in the African continent is enormous, changing the face of the traditional consumer.

Internet trade has made it easier for African entrepreneurs to search for quality products online, compare prices and purchased products. According to research by Google South Africa, there was an increase of 49% in query volumes in Nigeria, 37% in South Africa and 33% in Kenya, during 2014.  E-commerce hasn’t been beneficial only to African entrepreneurs, consumers and manufacturers, but also attracted widely investment opportunities alike.

Some of the African countries with booming E-commerce markets, transforming the economic landscape are Senegal, Morocco, Mozambique, Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria, Egypt, Tanzania, Cameroun, and Kenya. At the epicenter of Africa’s thriving economy and business, E-commerce has driven hundreds of businessmen to success, in different fields, especially the mobile telephone industry.   In the year 2010 alone, the Ghanaian government made GHC598 million in taxes and levies, representing 10% of government income for that year.

The secret to every successful business depends on the variety and quality of the products. E-commerce holds a ray of hope for African entrepreneurs and small scale business. It seems after gaining the political independence; Africa folded its arms, waiting for a miracle to come from heaven. God helps those who help themselves, now Africa is gradually emerging from the realms of poverty through the eye of E-commerce.

Twitter: The Cheating Games Many Users Play On That Social Media

Twitter 4

‘Twitter is an online social networking service that enables users to send and read short 140-character messages called “tweets”. Registered users can read and post tweets, but unregistered users can only read them.’ That’s the sweetest and shortest introduction of this famous social media, business men, entrepreneurs and people from all walks of life engaged for their livelihood.

On Twitter activities are tweeted, mails are exchanged and friendships are made. However, since every society there are both good and bad people, the same way the social media is occupied by both good and bad people, including people that take the advantage to cheat and those that do desperate things just to gain followers.

I registered on Twitter in 2011. Among all the social media, Twitter was the one I gave less attention to, concentrating much on Facebook. It seems I didn’t know the worth or significance of the Twitter that time. I got notification of every follower, but ignored without following back. Probably I wasn’t  even aware that I need to follow back, because I was green and amateur to social media.

After learning much about Twitter, it was too late and most of those that followed me were gone and when I became more serious on Twitter, following back my new followers, I realized that the social media I had ignored for over two years, worth more than ‘silver and gold.’ Frankly speaking, it is not easy to build or solicit for followers. People are crying to be followed on Twitter, because the more followers you have, the evidence that you are either celebrity or an important person in the society.

The hard way to generate followers genuinely without purchase, has increased dishonesty and cunning activities on Twitter. Out of the blue comes a message of followers. You want to be honest and sincere, so you follow them back, but after two or three days, those you sincerely followed them, unfollow you to increase the number of their followers. Some even do that the same day. Most people who do that profile reads “Following 1,257, Followers 315. Instead of them ‘unfollow’ those who aren’t following them, they unfollow the follower, they think aren’t important to follow.

Thanks to ‘Tweepdash’ which gives me information of those unfaithful ones to weed them out from my yard. On Twitter you see profiles like ‘Be Distinct.’ He wants to fly but has no wings and wants to be a celebrity by means of Twitter. He follows you and a day after he unfollows. This is the style many Twitter users adopt to increase the number of their followers and be ‘distinct.’

I wonder why people make a fun of themselves in this manner and think they are very intelligent. Greed is everywhere and wherever it exists, corruption and dishonesty rule. People pay for book review to be given a good review and many writers who hate to do such things, are merely seen as bad writers, because they see no review yet for their books.

I will always be happy even if I have one follower, because there is a reason that person followed me. I’m fortunate to have great authors such as Joel Friedlander, CNN’s Jim Clancy and musicians such as Chuck D of Public Enemy and Digital Underground following me on Twitter.

How to Market With Articles

Market 2

By Darwin Moore

Article marketing has a lot of power to attract web traffic, turn that traffic into customers, and make several sales a day. You can use article marketing to sell any product on earth, from a house, to a car, to a computer to a software package, to a pen or paper, as long as you can earn a commission, article marketing is the perfect way to make sales.

First you need to become an expert in the profitable niche. Insurance products require you to have deep knowledge about insurance, your article is the sales man and a poor article will not make a reader stay long and much less purchase anything from you. Start by perfecting your knowledge about those profitable niches and turn article marketing into a power house of money.

Second, you need to write a long article. Small articles do not present the reader with much expertise, do not show you are a true expert, just another writer trying to sell them something. Longer articles possess more keyword count and keyword diversity. The ideal article is always at least four hundred keywords long and the perfect article at least one thousand keywords long. Those writers with free time should aim to keep the article as long as possible specially for expensive products. Trying to sell a computer and earning 20% of the revenue? You definitely need to write at least three thousand words, like a sales letter.

Third keep the reader interested in reading more about your expertise. If the directory allows, place several related reading links and focus on the product, send the reader to an article that is similar to the article the reader just read. For example you can write about computer search and in another article internet search or computer desktop search. All topics must be either exact or very similar.

Fourth, aim to keep your article views high all the time, this salesman is very important but only if the salesman is getting customers. Send your article to all directories, Facebook if you have interested friends, Twitter if your followers love article marketing and StumbleUpon and Digg and all other networks that allow articles to be added and indexed. The more the better, this is a key component to success!

One article has enough power to deliver endless traffic, as long as the article is cared about. To care about an article means to constantly increase its size, adding new information, make it fresh. There is no sense in writing a ton of low quality articles that no one reads or clicks.

Finally, your article marketing techniques must be developed by learning new keywords. Google is blind to anything but keywords and so are readers. Research deeply the right keywords, keep them fresh and use them all each one in a new article. Do not combine keywords to confuse search engines and readers.

Remember the final goal is to convert a reader into a customer and then into a loyal reader and finally a loyal customer.
