Website Copy Writers – A Must Or a Myth

Posted on Posted in computer, website

Several years ago while managing a small airline I engaged the services of a website designer to get our business online with the purpose of raising the profile and generating more business. The designer asked for photos and made suggestions on what the site could do and how it would look. It all sounded fantastic and we were sold on it. He then asked us to provide the copy for the various pages we wanted. So taking our standard marketing material from brochures and magazine articles, the team in the office put together what we thought was some pretty slick web copy and sent it off to the web designer. A few weeks later the site was up and running, it looked great and we all felt good about it.

"That's it", we thought "we're online, we're happy". We started a PPC ad campaign still thinking we were on track. It was not until some time later that I learned about 'key words', 'key phrases' and word optimization while delving into uncharted waters of creating my own website. Once I kissed this most simple of theories, but certainly not the easiest to write, I was stunned at the level of ignorance I had operated under a few years ago. The thing that bothered me even more was how butly inept our web designer had been getting the basics right. Not once did he mention anything about the direct relationship between key words and the content on a page, let alone the value of marrying the two together.

I was reminded of this just the other day when a friend of mine introduced me to his web designer to show off his site currently under construction. The designer knew the computer engineering lingo and could do magical things with a site in terms of its appearance and ease of navigation, etc. Then as we were leaving he yelled out to my friend, "Do not forget to send me your copy John". "Here we go again", I thought. "Same movie, different actors". I asked the designer if he was going to re-write the copy himself for the purpose of optimization. What ensued was a mild argument which resulted in his credentials being shredded in the eyes of his client, my friend. The standard practices of marketing and advertorial copy writing are thrown out the window when writing copy for a website.

It takes a writer who is not only skilled in the creative aspects of copy writing, but who understands the fundamentals of writing website content to drive business to your site and achieves those all important high Google Quality Scores. Good quality web copy that is key word rich has to appear seamless but still have a creative edge to it. Aside from creative copy, the three intertwined key elements for writing web copy are the relationship between your Ad, your key words and key phrases, and the landing page a particular ad direct visitors to. Getting all of those ingredients …

Top 5 Tips for Your First Gaming PC

Posted on Posted in computer

Building a gaming PC could and will be a great experience: from getting the actual parts to getting the fanciest case, everyone wants the best for his beast. These are some tips that will help the newbie to better understand the complex mindset behind the “Pc Master Race”. Let’s break them down in more detail.

Don’t Budget On The Power Supply

You probably already heard this way too many times, but it’s also way too important: budgeting on your power supply will not only be a bad decision, but it could literally destroy your whole system. Many are, in fact, the cases where full 4k ready machines almost exploded due to the fact that they used a D- class imported Chinese power supply. Pay attention to that!

Decide Your Gaming Goals Before Buying

Buying a gaming PC must be a planned and thoughtful decision. First of all, it’s important to clarify to yourself what your goals (and games you want to play) are: for example, it’s pointless to get an ultra-overclocked CPU if you are just planning on playing Minecraft offline. Every configuration should be prepared according to the results you want to achieve.

A Gaming PC For Gaming

When building a gaming PC, it’s important to understand the fact that, if you want to use it for other purposes, it will impact the actual machine’s memory, in particular, if you are planning to use it for graphic design/rendering and such.

Many app developers recently admitted that having a gaming-ready setup (referring, in particular, to the graphics computing power) is not required most of the times, so think about your goals (once again) when you buy its parts! This applies, most of the times, also to mobile app development related professionals.

AMD vs Intel

There you go, the big question. When it comes to processors, Intel and AMD are compared most of the times, since they are literally the only two brands everyone is using. In my personal point of view, AMD processors are a nice fit for entry-level based configurations, while Intel working best in higher specs ones. With AMD’s Ryzen series, this changed a bit, given the fact that these new units are incredibly fast and performing, but I still prefer Intel, overall.

Prices

Let’s break down some prices: currently, if you want to build an entry-level gaming machine you should expect to spend something around 400/500$, while still being able to play almost every game in high detail, these configurations are usually using old generation parts. The mid-level ones are currently fluctuating around 800$, with a potential 2K computing power. The best ones can go from 1200$ to more than 4000$, just think about them if you want to play everything in full 4K with a minimum of 80 FPS.

A 1930's Computer

Posted on Posted in computer

I'll never forget the day that my brother, who runs up his own department in a major software company, came to my house with a box full of computer parts. He told me it was time that I got with the program and join the twenty century. He built this computer right in front of my eyes. I'm using it right now to write this article. It considered of spare parts he picked up from work. It's slow but it works for me. I have worked on-line using this "1930's" computer (his words) for years.

I did not have a clue on how to use this thing. So I made plenty of phone calls to my very patient brother. I was fast becoming a thorn in his side. I'm sure he asked himself more than once 'why in the world did I give him this computer'. But I quickly began to pick up on how to operate my fasinating new "toy".

I had the basics down. It was now time to get connected to the world. When I opened my first dial-up account I was so excited I could hardly contain myself. I was bothering everyone I knew with, 'Are you on-line? You have to check out this site! Hey what's your email address? ' I joined chat rooms and surfed around aimlessly. Then, like a bolt of lightning from cyber space it hit me!

I received a slice of spam in my email. The subject line jumped out at me like a revelation. It simply said, "Work from Home with Your Computer, Earn Big Money!" Something like that anyway. It was some so-called biz-op. Some get rich quick trick. It opened up a whole new world for me. No more hard labor. No more nine to five (it actually was more like nine to nine).

This was my focus now. Money making opportunities. My head was spinning from all the seemingly perfect opportunities out there. I jumped all over the place. From one opp to another. I joined every affiliate and mlm company I could find. I lost a lot of money. I got bruised, burned, and bit! But … I learned a lot and never wave up!

I kept telling myself that if they could do it, so could I. I pressed forward. I got smarter. I looked for opportunities that were right for me. I learned to sift through all the hype and find the programs that I would be able to work. The important thing to note here is that I never wave up. I never quit. I fell flat on my face more times then I would like to remember. But I just got up, brushed myself off and kept going. I did not care what anyone said. I would not give up. I would make it happen.

Shakespeare wrote, "That has not half the power to harm me, as I have to be hurt."

How to Fix a Slow Computer in 3 Steps

Posted on Posted in computer

If you are looking to improve a slow computer and speed things up – you may want to look into a few things like getting rid of unnecessary files and programs. Also, cleaning your computer is recommended with a registry cleaner. You can also contact the Windows forum for help if some of these things do not seem to speed up your computer.

Diet and Healthy Eating – Why People Choose Health Over Fat!

Posted on Posted in computer, gadget

Diet and healthy eating, among other things is a choice we make every day. Studies show the more choice we have the better we choose when it comes to healthy or fatty comfort foods.

This can be a choice of a salad over a burger, an award winning documentary over a comedy, or a practical appliance over a fun gadget.

The size of the menu in a restaurant is significant in that people make different choices depending on the size of the menu.

The smaller the menu will allow people to choose the old stand by French fries or other comfort foods not necessarily healthy. Longer menus give so many options we need to rationalize what our final choice is.

People will think more about diet and healthy eating when they have more options on a menu or anything else where they need to make an informed decision. People will choose things that are virtuous, because they are easy to justify. This applies to a salad over a burger, a documentary over a comedy and a practical appliance over a fun gadget.

In one study an experiment was done with two groups of people consistent of 60 people in each group. They were to choose their favorite flavor of ice cream from some photographs. The first group was given a choice between one flavor of regular ice cream and one flavor of reduced-fat ice cream. The second group had more choice coming from five regular and five fat-reduced flavors.

Of the group with only one choice 20% chose the reduced-fat ice cream while from the group with more choices 37% chose the reduced-fat ice cream.

In an experiment using different people and food of trays filled with fruit and cookies. As expected 55% chose the "virtuous" fruit over "vice" cookies from the small-choice tray while 76% of participants chose fruit in the large-assortment group.

There was however an important exception revealed in other experiments.

168 people were asked to choose between a computer printer and a fun MP3 player. Each item was in as before a low- and high-assortment group. Before the selection was made the groups were told they had to complete either a low- or high-effort set of calculation problems. In reality they were all doing the exact same nine equations.

The people in the "low-effort" task chose the computer by 48% just as in the previous experiments. The "high-effort" task group feeling they had worked a lot harder than the other group decided to reward themselves with the MP3 player and only 26% chose the computer.

In certain situations it looks like it is easier to justify hedonic items. As an example, you may just have a hard work out in the gym and it is easier to choose chocolate cake over fruit salad because you feel earned it.

The implications are huge for public health officials, and marketers as this information can be used to nudge people to make better health decisions without removing their freedom …
