a classmate's jewelry business

A former classmate of mine runs a jewelry shop. It used to be his father's business for many years. He took over when his dad expressed his intention to retire. It's also a good thing that he had the interest in running the business. It can be seen in his unique and beautiful designs of jewelries - from wedding rings to earrings. Because of his passion, the transition of ownership from father to son was a success. In fact, he was able to open a few more branches of their shop outside the city. With his great designs, I believe he has a chance to widen his target market if he brings this business Online. After all, people are already buying jewelries on the internet, all in the name of convenience.

ease in business and advertising

Because competition in the business is ever increasing, most companies (big and small), need to use all forms of advertising. They need advertising to help build, grow, maintain or increase their reputation in the industry. Advertising can either hire employees or get them more prospect clients. One form of advertising that I find effective is the use of posters and banners -- be they posted online or offline. Any company can have a regular- or huge-sized poster or banner with interesting details about them, what they do and what exceptional services they offer. In the past, this means of advertising is deemed expensive but with recent developments in technology which allow print businesses the use of excellent tools such as the eon code web to print system, ordering and processing of prints can already be done online, without the hassle, and in the least expensive way. Right now, as we are coming close to an election, there is also a huge need for campaign materials. The print business industry can easily handle any huge or multiple orders with efficiency and ease through this system.

I think this print business is something that I want to do in the near future. Hopefully, the husband will think the same way so I  can start checking out what it takes to successfully carry out a business of this nature.

a simple and effective website to drive more prospects

Some business websites are full of uninteresting and unnecessary features that instead of keeping prospects coming, they would only end up driving them away. If you are in business, you do need to have an excellent website but this doesn't mean that you need to have a website with lavish and complicated designs. These days, websites for businesses tend to be more effective when they are simple and easy to navigate. Such is the case now with the recently launched website of Radiall. Having been around in the business for many years now, they have already gained a lot of credibility as one of the leading manufacturers of high quality interconnect components for various industries such as Aerospace, Defense, Medical, Industrial and Telecommunications.

If you check out their new website now, Radiall is already going for the minimalistic and simple design where people or prospects can conveniently navigate. Certainly, they have all the essential elements that drive more prospects to their business. Users will not get lost or overwhelmed with unnecessary information since the information that they need are in recognizable categories. You can search for a certain product through the Products category but you can also browse per industry through the Industries category. More importantly, their website does not take forever to load and this is probably because they have done away with the unnecessary features. Businesses should go for a simple and effective website like that of Radiall's.

a partnership business, why not?

Not so long ago, I had been talking to some friends about opening up a partnership business, an online selling business, that is. This plan didn't materialize this year, though. We thought we could squeeze some time for this but we ended up getting too busy with our own bread and butter - our respective jobs! We are not giving up, though. Hopefully, after we have already set up and optimized our online presence, we would be able to launch this small business some time next year. Right now, we're still discussing how we can make this small business work smoothly because we also don't want it to interfere with our jobs. We ended up agreeing to have some roles/tasks to carry out. I thought my role is quite challenging since I will have to focus on the marketing side of the business. Hmmm, how do I do that and how do I get started? Perhaps someone can help me carry out some parts of my task. I thought I could probably use some advertising ideas from a friend who happens to be a professional copywriter and editor. Another good old friend who will arrive from the U.S. next year suggested that we print flyers at printingamerica.com because she thinks flyers can be effective advertising tools for our business. Hopefully, I can come up with some catchy phrases for our future ad campaign. Now, I am getting all the more excited in this business! I can't wait to get started. I am really hoping that 2013 will be another good year for me and my business-minded friends.

Talking About The New Normal

What's the new normal these days? This got me thinking today, and I thought I should make a list. 1. Wearing Masks. Obviously, it'...
