The Best Content You Will Ever Find About Online Business

side-image-best-contentOkay you must be thinking why am I here? “I must have been tricked to click on this link.” You were promised the BEST CONTENT but here you are staring at some list written by a random dude you don’t even know.

I am not tricking you my friend, instead I am here to un-trick you.

Unfortunately there are thousands of so called gurus out there who claim they can help you succeed and make money. You give them your hard earned cash and in return they give you useless pieces of software; ebooks created with recycled articles and expert advice (which are actually myths).

What Was it Like To Speak in Front of a Hundred People on Stage?

I just had my first public speaking opportunity here in Habiganj, Sylhet. In the past I spoke in front of a large audience for up to 10 minutes. This was the first time in my life I took the stage and had to talk for over an hour.

Some background info:

I started a web design school here in Habiganj, Sylhet and I teach people how to become a freelance web designer like myself. My team organized a free seminar at the Habiganj Press Club arena and we had 120 guests that day. I had to give a speech about the overview and possibilities of freelancing and outsourcing in our country.

So how is it like? [Continue reading…]

8 Tips to Maximize the Attendance of Your Webinars

You have the guests. You have the technology. You even have a hashtag all set. Yet, for some reason, you still have not been able to increase the attendance rate of your past and future webinars, otherwise known as webcasts.

The paucity of attendees to your webinars, whether they’re live or pre-recorded, is something that troubles a lot of brands that utilize online seminars. When you have just a couple of people watching your webinar, you feel disheartened and discouraged. You ultimately believe it was a wasted investment and a waste of time because not too many people were a part of your webinar.

It really is compelling to look at the numbers and see just how consistent webinar attendance rates are across various industries. The average webinar attendance rate is between 40 and 50 percent of registrants – that number shoots up to 60 percent depending on the source.

Webinars are superb business development strategies to employ. A webinar platform can help you conduct a killer webinar that will develop your brand, you become an authority on the topic and you garner the trust of your customers and prospects. Moreover, webinars become an easier way to get in front of a large audience (there are nearly three billion people using the Internet today!).

But what good does it do to host a webinar if no one is actually watching it? [Continue reading…]

Hey all, Shuvo Noboborsh 1423 (Happy Bangla New Year.) I hope you are having a fun time. Today is day 5 of the 7 day challenge and I am blogging this.

Now when you are blogging, should you cover about recent trends and hot news topics?

When I first started blogging, I was informed that you should write timeless blog posts. Timeless means a topic which can be read throughout years. I found that when you are in a tech related niche, this rule does not applies. Things change so fast, that a post written just 1 year ago doesn’t applies today. [Continue reading…]

Almost every blog theme has two columns. One large column on the left for the blog posts, the other smaller one on the right as the sidebar.

The sidebar of your blog plays an important role. Today I will share a few tips for your to make better use of your blog sidebar.

Left Sidebar, Right Sidebar, Two Sidebars or No Sidebar?

When picking up a theme for your blog, you will find various options for sidebars. My tip here is to keep it simple and have just one sidebar on the right hand side. I see many websites have the sidebar on the right while the main content on the left.

Google has their main search results on the left; YouTube videos stay on the left; the only exception is Facebook where the content in the wall stays on the right. But it’s still worth experimenting the placement of your sidebar. Have at least one sidebar on your blog. Let me share why you need one: [Continue reading…]
