Acquired by LinkedIn in 2012, SlideShare has become one of the most useful social media platforms ever created for professionals. SlideShare allows users to share information in the form of PowerPoint presentations, PDF documents, infographics and videos embedded from YouTube. The user interface is easy, providing the option to either click or scroll through the pages of each document with easy to see arrows, and a static page counter that lets you know what page you're on. And, with the ability to go full screen with one click, you can view each presentation in its full form. Not Your Usual Social Media Platform Although it's built for professionals, SlideShare is considered a social media platform – but it's much different than what you're used to. While Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat are built to facilitate social conversations, SlideShare is designed to facilitate the exchange of information. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines
You may think that you are effectively communicating with your employees, but ask them and you’re probably in for a big surprise. It seems easy enough on the surface, but communication in a work environment is complex and often confused with talking. If your employees are continually not getting your point, or even underperforming, it is probably time to take an inward look at the ways in which you can improve on your communication skills. Do You Know Your Audience? Not every business model is the same, and different employees will relate to your communication efforts in some ways better than others. For example, in a business where the majority of your staff is young, a mandatory, after hour, two hour staff meeting is not going to be well received. Consider other forms of communication such as small group meetings, emails and even SMS text messaging. How Well is
Now more than ever, the ways in which consumers are accessing services and products change in the blink of an eye. This means that a small business needs to be quick on their feet and flexible in order to keep up and keep a steady income flow. There are some people who think that starting a small business is not much more than setting up a website or opening the store's doors. They quickly find out that there is much more to it, and will lose everything they have invested quickly if they don't adapt right away. Here are some ways in which you can not only avoid that happening to your small business, but will help you to grow it to be successful. 1. Stay Organized There is a lot to be done every day with a small business, and you need to be organized to stay on
As we are entering a new realm of cloud-based internet services, we are seeing the disappearance of installed software. It is now believed that the convenience and ease of these on-line services will eventually lead to software being sold as a service as opposed to as a product. This SaaS (Software as a Service) approach is being embraced by businesses and industries of every type and size for a number of compelling reasons: Cost Effectiveness When you use web-based software there are no upfront costs or investments needed – you no longer need to buy multiple software packages for all of the desktops used in your business. Ongoing costs are also minimized as the provider of your online service is taking care of any maintenance issues. With traditional software you might need to install additional hardware to support the program adding to the overhead. Web-based programs are typically sold as
Medical practices are now estimating that yearly, they are losing up to $150,000 due to patient no-shows. In multi-physician facilities and clinics the amount can easily surpass $1 million. As one clinic reports that they had 14,000 no-shows over the course of one year, a staggering number that could be reduced by automated SMS text messages. Regardless of the size of the practice, profits are being lost due to the overwhelmingly amount of patients who cannot keep an appointment. Why Use SMS Text The act of notifying patients of an appointment is a time consuming task when taken on by a receptionist or secretary. That time could be spent doing other pressing office work if the physician utilizes SMS text messaging as a tool to remind patients of upcoming appointments. In the past, physicians relied on sending postcards as an appointment reminder. Not only was this a time consuming task,
