Back to the World of Business

5 Nov

How many blogs do we have to write about for business and how they use technology, well here’s another one to the list.  This week we were ask to find stories and how the topic could be related back as to how social media and technology is used in business. For Social Media Explorer  I chose to do a story by Kat French and it’s dated on October, 31, 2012 called Zen and the Art of Websites Converstation

What’s the most annoying thing when you come to a website? Clutter I would say is because  a cluttered website means that you aren’t series about what you are trying to tell the viewers, too many pages, unorganized, sloppy work, all of these’s aspect’s are what make a clutter website an unprofessional site. A cluttered site it makes difficult for the viewer to focus on what they are looking for.By having a finished website and it looks professional you are encouraging viewers to come and see. You want the viewers to feel welcomed and have a warm and safe feeling once they arrive at your site, you don’t want them to feel like they are going from one place to another and end getting more lost.

Divided-testing states that closing the door on clutter will markedly improve sales. Having easy access to checkouts and confidential for private information is what will help people to buy from you, rates will grow up and you will be busy. De-cluttering doesn’t mean that you rearrange the whole project, it just means that you have to decide what’s important and what you can leave out.  It doesn’t matter if it’s a blog or a website or even a business proposal you should keep the clutter to a bare mimimun. You don’t want a CEO looking at your work and establish that you can’t decide what’s important.

Once you get threw that speed bump then it’s cake from there, guess again.  We have all asked someone where something is” Where  is mt tooth brush” and its been right in front of us the whole time. Everything can’t be handed to you on a sliver platter you must put in the time and layout must be all the best it can be.  You can have it all , loads of pages , colour, pictures, widgets. If you try to place everything on one page it’s going to look like you threw it together in like 5 mins. It’s not your high school homework or a spare of the moment party. You have to cover very little detail to make it absolutely perfect and looks professional.  If this was you’re locker, where would you put you’re books ( At the very top of your locker). What could go on the bottom of the locker? The items that don’t need to be seen first, but still easy to navigated. Have some fun with the other pages, take someone on a magical ride and let them discover their inter creativity. I think that it is best that the term’s and conditions should be near the floor.

How do I think that this story and ideas have an impacted on business is because having a cluttered website won’t help with the business. People don’t want to see clutter everywhere they want clean and effective websites. Making sure that everything is on there and put in it’s place will help get sales and have people tell thier friends. Clutter  is a wastful thing so let’s keep clutter where is belongs in the trash.

My other story that I chose is called 5 Common Job Interview Mistakes to Avoid by Brie Weiler Reynolds, published on November, 3, 2012. This article is about what are some of the mistakes you  can make before going for an interview. This piece is about what not to do when you are preparing for an interview. 1 never forget the interviewer’s name, you don’t  want to look like fool when you enter for the interview. The interview has a sheet with all of your information on it’s easy for them to know your name but not there’s. You should know that what the name is of the person interviewing you, practise a sentence  with the person’s name in it and say it over and over till you get it.

If you are applying for a job and it isn’t in you’re area then before you go you should know where your going, especially since you have not been there before. Driving a long distance can be new and inexperienced, so you should give yourself lots of time to get there. Even making the trip days before the interview to know where your going. It looks unprofessional and disrespectful to the interviewer to have to keep them waiting.

Practise with a family member or a friend to some of the tough questions that met come up. Its good to have an idea of what type of questions will be asked and its good to know what to say and not to blank on it. By preparing and knowing what to say will help you look more professical and seem more vaulable to the

When the time comes for you  to hand your references over to the interviewers by not having any on you, it shows that you don’t really care about the job you are applying for. You don’t seem that interested and you dont want them to look at you’re references. The reason that they are asking is because they want to know what kind of a person that you are and what you could bring to the company, what do you have to offer and how would you make it better.

By the time the interview is coming to an end you should have gathered up some questions that you would like to ask? By asking questions they see that you are interested in learning about the company and what you will be doing if you get the job. They don’t want to see someone who just shows up to an interview and doesn’t really seem all the interested in the job. If  you have questions , ask them you need to know what will you’re responabilies be and know how you will handle a situation that comes up. Well thought out  questions and answer’s are showing tell that you are interested and would like to know more.

By knowing what you do wrong and  know how to fix them then you are off to a great start. Being preapared and know where your going and who’s going to be interviewing you. Then practise what you want to say to them and be prepared for some tough questions. Not every interview is the same, all of them are different and they desighed to understand you and what you bring to the table. The business world is tough and sometimes unforgiving so it’s a good idea to do your homework and be smart about what you say to people.
