Picking a Plugin

Posted by admin on May 30, 2013 under Tips | Comments are off for this article

 

Plugins are small applications that you can install on your WordPress or other web platform to increase interaction on your page, make it easier to manage, or make it easier to keep track of your stats. There are a number of plugins available for free. While many are great, some can actually damage your page and others won’t do anything to help you at all. That’s why, when your looking for a great plugin, you need to check out the reviews and know exactly what you’re looking for. The most popular plugins are used for social media sharing, preventing spam and ecommerce.

The Best Plugins for Preventing Spam

If you’re using WordPress, chances are you’re already familiar with Akismet for catching spam. However, sometimes, this just isn’t enough. The more popular your page gets the more likely your going to be to get spam comments on your page. That’s why it is usually necessary to include a different plugin as a second layer of protection for your site. Spam Stopper is another popular alternative. This one works by requiring that users submit a CAPTCHA prior to posting, eliminating spam bot comments entirely. However, some people don’t like requiring their readers to complete CAPTCHA, as they feel they would loose out on genuine comments. Another alternative that does not require CAPTCHA is Spam Free WordPress. It does not rely on CAPTCHA and can even allow you to block certain IP ranges where spam commonly originated from.

The Best Plugins for Social Media Sharing

If you’re trying to create a strong social media presence, then plugins for social media sharing are a must. The Facebook share plugin is standard on pretty much any blog. This allows users to share your page on Facebook, thereby sharing it with their own friends and viewers. This should not be confused with the Facebook like plugin, which allows users to Like your post on their Facebook page. Finally, there is the Facebook fan box. If you have a fan page, you can share this on your site and allow your blog readers to become fans as well.

The Best Plugins for eCommerce

If you are looking to monetize your site, then you will need to look into a few of the eCommerce options available on WordPress. Live Chat is a customer support ap that will allow you to answer customer questions and complaints. If you’re selling a physical product on your page, Market Press is a plugin that creates a shopping cart for your site. Finally, if you’re looking for an all-in-one plugin that will handle your orders, shipping, customer service and many other things, then you should take a look at the Shopp plugin.

There are many free plugin options available out there. At the same time, there are many cheap options that will help you make sales.

How Couriers Enjoy the Benefits of GPS Technology

Posted by admin on February 26, 2013 under Tips | Comments are off for this article

Beyond the sometimes shrill claims and business slogans, couriers are, at bottom, all about delivering on time, with every single package—it only takes one instance of mishandled courier work for customers to scamper away and move over to your competitors. To ensure utmost efficiency, it is common for couriers to use the latest innovation or technology as it becomes available, and one of the currently most useful assistive technologies out there is the global positioning system (GPS). But how do couriers actually use this technology, and how does GPS enable them to do their job more efficiently?pic

What is GPS?

Basically, GPS is nothing esoteric—its operating principles are easily understood despite the high-level technical matters involved in making it work. At the very least, the use of GPS can make any courier work easier to do, primarily from the management and operational standpoint. GPS-enabled devices, such as smart phones and tablets specifically designed for the courier industry, “talk” with satellites orbiting the Earth, obtaining from them data regarding location and depth, with an accuracy of up to a few meters. This means a manager can track the location of any courier in real time, as seen by the “eye in the sky.” On the other hand, GPS can also enable customers to track their packages or parcels, thus giving them peace of mind and reassurance of the courier’s reliability of service.

Making the Job more Efficient

The advantages of the usage and implementation of GPS technology to the courier and to the customer are obvious: by being able to know the whereabouts of a courier or package delivery at any time, a manager or supervisor can make sure that the courier work is processed as fast as possible and thereby avoid the occurrence of any hitch. This efficiency means resources are properly used and allocated and, if possible, even saved. GPS also works well with providing location information to couriers already on the road, and such avoids the wastage of time, energy and fuel. GPS also has a psychological effect on couriers on the road—as they know that their location is being logged and recorded, couriers will always be on their best work behaviour. The other end of this whole string of benefits concerns the customer: the technology allows them to “watch” how their package travels through the network until it arrives in the destination. This empowers the customer with timely knowledge and reassures them of the reliability of the courier’s service.

Increased Profitability

GPS technology has been largely responsible for further “shrinking” the world in which we live. And with a “smaller” world, the typical courier is able to accomplish any given courier work with ease, speed and improved efficiency. Such positive changes have a significant effect on a company’s bottom line: this simply means the company gets a bigger volume of work processed in a shorter time, and thus, increased profits..

You can search for all types of electronics, including laptops, cell phones, computer parts and equipment, and games.

If you do not wish to use the search bar, you can easily find a product you need by adding filters to the result page and by sorting laptops in the way you like. You can also read detailed specs about the product by clicking on its link or image. You can also find a place to buy this product by going to “Prices” tab on the product page. Prices are already sorted first by cheapest and most reliable.

According to the site owners, many other features will be added soon. Features such as “price tracking,” “similar products search” and others which will enhance the efficiency of the users experience.
