One of my favorite TV shows is undoubtedly, Myth Busters on Discovery Channel. People are very interested in enjoying the latest crazy ideas applied into practice, exactly what the creators of the show, Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman, Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Belleci know best. I am grateful to them, they offered me many hours of relaxing time and many other people noticed this fact because their audience is remarkable.
For the ones that aren’t enjoying Myth Busters (if there is someone), the idea of the show is to create experiments to demonstrate the value of truth for some dilemmas. The fun part is the large palette of ideas used and the way experiments are realized. The same episode may treat some serious problems, somehow specific to engineering field as calculating the trajectory of projectiles to more “human” ideas as how to combat the smell from a car where the corpses of two pigs were deposited for some weeks. Anyway, I really recommend watching an episode to get a full picture.
Blogging is an amazing way to help increase traffic to your website. I remember writing about Blogging for Business in my Honors Program Final Project about 7 years ago now. Since then many website owners have realized the power of blogging for growing website traffic, and thus, their business. By using tools like Google Analytics website owners can track how many visitors to their site are returning visitors and how many are new visitors.
Most website owners should strive for a decent balance in this area. You always want to be generating new visitors. That said, it’s important to you retain website visitors as well. In this article we are going to talk about how website owners can use blog comments to increase the number of returning visitors to your website.
WordPress is known as the best blogging platform for a reason, 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.

The options to customize your WordPress site are limitless and there are multiple ways to do to everything, so it can be very confusing at times. Here are some simple SEO hacks for WordPress that really work without you having to be an SEO mastermind.
Branding is the most important part of every business. The success of most businesses relies largely on the popularity of the brands. People remember a brand and follow it, which gives impetus and growth to the business. The goal of every startup is to build a brand name and to maintain it. Therefore, branding is the core objective of every business.
However, in the professional world one should realize that besides the company, business, and industry, every individual is an asset, and popular assets are brands everyone knows. An individual has his/her own identity, which is separate from the business, and the more popular an individual is, the more he or she is recognized and rewarded. Therefore, branding yourself helps you to become popular among your business circle and helps your work become recognized. For a freelancer, branding is much more important. This is because freelancers work in their own comfort zone and their communication with people is restricted. In such cases you need to take more care branding yourself so you are popular with your clients.
Have you ever had the experience of spending a couple of days consulting with a potential client, gave him everything he wanted, only to lose him to another provider simply because of price?
Yet you know competing on price is a losing strategy. For one, you only have 24 hours in a day - how much lower can you charge before you go below the poverty line? And how can you even compete with the thousands of other providers from Asia, who are willing to work for a tenth of what you are asking for?
Well, that’s where marketing comes in. The answer is simple, really: build your brand, position yourself right and ask for the money.
