More and more websites these days are adapting their designs to be responsive. Just try it: if you resize your browser window while the site is open, and the site’s layout changes, then the site has a responsive design. Why? The reason for that may be right beside you. 1. Most internet traffic is from mobile devices Based on a report by SimilarWeb in 2015, 56% of internet traffic to leading US websites came from mobile devices. But that was last year; the number may have already gone up by now. With that much web browsing going on, it’s almost a requirement these days to design a mobile-friendly site. Even if it isn’t required, though, you will clearly miss out on a large part of the market if your site isn’t mobile responsive. Phones and tablets have smaller screens. You can’t view a full-page site on a small screen comfortably. If you would try, it will involve a lot of scrolling and zooming in and out. That’s annoying, and it doesn’t serve the purpose of a mobile device. Compare that to browsing a responsive site, where you can see everything clearly at first glance. The only gesture you’ll have to do to navigate the site is scrolling up or down. Everything is sized well for a small screen, and the links and buttons are large enough targets for your fingers. Isn’t that a much better user experience? 2. It makes multitasking on desktops easier Responsive design doesn’t just benefit phones and tablets. They benefit desktops too. Let’s say you’re typing up a document while researching on the web. To make the job easier, you could put the windows of your web browser and word processor side by side. Responsive sites would adapt to the resized browser window, […]
The Internet has always been a game-changer ever since it was invented. It’s given us more convenience than any other technology.
Currently, people are glued to social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Google Plus to the point of addiction. Because of this trend, different businesses should take advantage of these platforms to market their products and services. However, utilizing social media as a marketing strategy can be a pain in the ass. If you’re building your own business and looking into social media as a tool to sell your products, you would be better off if you outsource your social media needs. Below are the reasons why you have to do it. Time As an entrepreneur, you don’t have the time to manage your business, develop your product, and publish information of your product and business on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter simultaneously. If you attempt to do all of these at once, you would have too much on your plate and put your business at risk. When you opt for outsourcing, you’d have more time to take care of your business and enhance your product. Further, you’d be assured that your social media marketing will be successful because another entity, which is an expert in the field, does the job for you. Expenses Hiring someone, who would be responsible for social media marketing alone, is costly. You need to pay his or her salary, plus allowances and benefits required by law. These expenses may hurt your business especially if you’re still starting. Moreover, if you delegate your social media marketing to existing employees, they may neglect their other essential tasks. This scenario will be a disadvantage on your end and a blow to your business. On the other hand, when you outsource your social media needs, you would avoid the above-stated inconveniences. Lack of expertise You may not be skilled in social media marketing. That’s why you have to rely on the experts. These experts […]

Cancer is a killer. I bet all of us knows that. And it isn’t a silent killer. It’s a painful one. It hurts greatly. And cancer not only hurts the patient; it also hurts those who love and care for him. Those of us who had the misfortune of seeing a loved one battle cancer know how it feels. More so, those of us who have lost someone dear to cancer knows how serious this is. And it’s not only the physical and emotional pain that gives us distress. Cancer is a very expensive disease to get around with. Curing it is a Herculean task. The costs of surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and drugs can punch a giant hole in anyone’s bank account, no matter how much money they have in there. Some even get into debt because of cancer. Debts that will bother them for a good part of their lives. Cancer not only kills people; it also kills dreams. The dreams of the people paying hard-earned money to keep their loved one alive may no longer be realised, all because of debt. Again, those of us who have had a loved one face cancer would know. Right now, there is one person going through the same thing. His name is Dylan Peters. And this isn’t just his first time; this is his fifth. He’s a survivor, and he’s a tough one. His cousin, Jeremiah Baker, described him as “a kind hearted man that would do anything for anyone. He has been dealt a hard hand of life, but has always made the best of his situation and has always been so strong.” Sure, he may be a tough one, but he still needs your help. If you were thinking of donating money, hold up for a second, because you […]
We’ve heard it and read it almost everywhere and everyday. Article after article in various sites online have said the same old thing: Millennials are lazy. Could be true, yes. Millennials (myself included) are indeed lazy. We are so used to machinery and technology doing the work for us. We don’t even like the idea of work. It’s boring, draining, and ultimately unfulfilling. Work doesn’t allow us to exercise our creative minds. It doesn’t give us the freedom to have our own way. In short, work doesn’t allow us to innovate. Normal work constrains us to a set of rules. It binds us to a certain way of doing things. It doesn’t give us any wiggle room; we just have to do as we’re told, and that’s it. In other words, normal work is a complete waste of our creative potential. And because of that, we lose all motivation for doing work. We become very, very lazy, as the older generations accuse us of being. Naturally, laziness and productivity are polar opposites. These two have an exponentially inverse correlation with each other. As laziness increases, productivity decreases even further. From the outside, this is what others observe, and, well, the numbers don’t lie. But is it so, really? How about if someone told you that lazy people are smart? What if someone told you that lazy people are very creative? How would you react to the fact that lazy people are the best at innovation? If that sounds insane, here is why. Lazy people want to get things done quickly, effectively, and efficiently. Quickly As lazy people, we always would like to minimise the time that we do boring, draining, unfulfilling work. For many of us, it’s not the case that we don’t want to do any work at all; […]
