Selling is the most important element of any business and ranges from selling online products to selling groceries. The success of any business depends on a strong, unique selling point and the correct attitude to sell. You might be a freelancer or a salaried employee; you cannot avoid selling, as it is the most important aspect of your business. While writers need to sell their work through their writing, designers need to sell their work through their designs. Therefore, everyone involved in a business is directly or indirectly a sales person.
People sell not only in their professional life but also in their personal life, although they might not be aware of this fact. And the one who sells better and sells efficiently wins the race.
Having a blog could be dangerous because, for many of us, the entire process of administering and maintaining can turn into an addictive task, one not being happy until a new post is published; moreover, the addiction may be acute and one will wait for the first reaction of the readers impatiently. Certainly, it’s not too difficult to become a blogging addict and, surprisingly, personally I do not consider it to be very negative (of course, it isn’t that good to have this “quality” but, compared to other problems, it is not the worst thing in the world). In fact, there are two sides of the same problem: if someone is skeptical, that person will have the tendency to say that spending too much time on a blog is a disaster and this “illness” needs to be corrected, but an optimistic person would say that the addictiveness is only a big passion and that is all.
Being objective takes a lot of effort but, my humble opinion, cumulated with the thoughts of other great bloggers, related to the problem of blogging, concludes to the fact that this is a time-consuming activity so the problem isn’t the addictiveness, it is mostly about how to be more competitive. Being a good blogger or taking care of a successful blog is a difficult job and the competition is terrible; users have so many possibilities that almost these can almost be mentioned as countless.
WordPress! is an award-winning CMS, which enables you to build Blogs, Web sites and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including its ease-of-use and extensibility, have made WordPress the most popular blog software available. Best of all, WordPress is an open source solution that is freely available to everyone.
There are hundreds of WordPress themes online waiting to be paid for. Some of them are worth it, some are not. Just because many of our followers decided to stay with Premium themes, that doesn’t mean Free Themes are ugly, cluttered, and boring.
Your social graph is determined by the quality of conversations, people on the network and information exchanged you and your network members. Hence, it’s important to adopt some best practices (Dos) and refrain from indulging in certain kind of untoward behavior (Don’ts) while interacting on a day-to-day basis. Though, you may think that your posting does not make any difference on a ‘casual’ site like Facebook or MySpace, it all adds to your social image.
This social image building process may seem like a waste of time in the short term, but in the long run, this has the potential to yield rich dividends. For example, someone with whom you are interacting on Facebook can give you a lead to a potential job opening (may be his status update, it may be you reaching out to him outside Facebook etc) or in other case, someone may bounce a creative business idea and then you can team up and find a future business partner. Even someone’s posts and views on particular topics may be liked by you and he/she may end up as a date and subsequently marriage.
