Windows+LinkedIn=Pinnacle-of-Professionalism

Windows + LinkedIn= Pinnacle of Professionalism

Windows + LinkedIn= Pinnacle of Professionalism

As every living being on the planet knows about the current acquisition of LinkedIn, to give a better understanding of the acquisition I am going to share some of my findings of the deal. On 13th June 2016 Microsoft breaks the internet by its largest acquisition in the history, Microsoft acquired world’s biggest professional social network website LinkedIn Corp. for $26.2 billion dollars. The Idea behind the deal is both the Microsoft and LinkedIn is in the saturation state and this acquisition can open serval new aspects for both of them.

With this deal, Mr. Nadella wants to connect office tools with the professionals who works on them so that they can have a direct approach towards their work. For example, if the Microsoft office is directly connected to the LinkedIn, the professionals who are attending that meeting could learn more about the fellow members. The sales person who is using the Microsoft tools for managing their clients can get some details about their client as their sheets will be directly connected to LinkedIn via the internet.

With the acquisition of LinkedIn, Linda.com also belonged to Microsoft.Linda.com is a portal for training videos provided by the LinkedIn to make its user smarter and more efficient. With the help of Linda, Microsoft can offer tutorial videos of Linda in its native software’s like Excel and spreadsheets.

Mr. Nadella is also planning to share its Cortana digital assistant access to the data provided by the LinkedIn. The LinkedIn is hoping to take its business on track with this acquisition as the shares of LinkedIn has been decelerated by 50% in a year. It seems Microsoft has a trend of acquiring businesses with their every new CEO, as with Steve Ballmer acquired Nokia handset in $9.4 billion and now Mr. Nadella acquired LinkedIn at a much greater price.

With this new acquisition, Microsoft can link LinkedIn with skype and its email, this move could act as the connective tissue for enterprises. The acquisition made by Microsoft is very precious as LinkedIn is the most important platform for Freelancers and recruiters. Now Microsoft has a content company which is world’s most specialised, influential and highly updated platform. LinkedIn is a platform not only for Recruiter’s and employers but can also serve as an advertising media for companies where they can get relevant leads. If we talk about the potential of LinkedIn, it has 433 million members’ and in every second 2 new members joins LinkedIn. In 2016 it has 45 billion page views which are 8 billion more than the previous year. LinkedIn publishes some of the most valuable content available on the internet.

By this new acquisition, Microsoft has become a more powerful brand and reached the pinnacle of the professional world.

Save Lives, Donate Blood

Everybody knows about blood transfusion and blood donation, but here I am going to Blood transfusion is a common practice nowadays, but every one once in a while must have thought that when this practice started and how it become so developed to the be the common practise. Blood transfusion date backs to 17th century when William Harvey a British physician made the scientists and doctors aware about the Blood circulation and its properties.

The 1st successful Blood transfusion was recorded when Dr. Richard Lower performed a successful blood transfusion in a dog and after that several successful experiment has been performed. In the year 1818 Dr James Blundell successfully performed blood transfusion to a patient. After this several other developments has been made in the research work of the human blood. In 1901 Dr. Karl Landsteiner from Austria discovered Human blood groups.

It’s a known fact that blood transfusion is very good for health and also responsible for saving many lives. During 2nd world war blood transfusion has served a very important procedure and saved many lives. Many patients around the world does not have proper access to blood and in the end they die due to the unavailability of the blood. The need of blood transfusion is not certain, as anybody can have a requirement of blood at any place and any time, for that purpose the provision of blood bank has been made. For filling these blood banks’ there are many campaign’s running around the world which require Regular, Voluntary and unpaid blood donors.

According to report published by WHO it there are 108 million blood donations collected around the world, out of 50% of these donations are collected in developed countries having 20% of the world’s population, which gives a simple stat that only donation of only 1% of population can fulfil the basic need of the world. Around 62 countries in the world collect 100% of their blood requirement by the voluntary blood donation.

To increase the awareness for blood donation world health organisation (WHO) has dedicated a day 14th June on 2004 as a world Blood donor day. On this day the govt. of different countries around the world organised various campaigns to promote blood donations.

We at “ENGINEERBABU” always indulge in the things which could be used for social cause. In the year 2015 we made an app “Share blood India” for a client in a nominal price so as it could be utilized by the people for better good.

Digital-Marketing

Basic Digital Media Marketing Terminology

Basic Digital Media Marketing Terminology which you must know

New into the world of digital media marketing? We understand that in this ever expanding world of e-commerce and digital media marketing, you won’t like to be left out and behind of your competitors. After all, Digital media marketing has become a key aspect of any company’s marketing strategy, and indispensable part of the company’s corporate communications, Brand management and PR division. Obviously, adapting the same as a part of your marketing Strategy is essential.

But, there are honestly lots of sophisticated jargons and “technical /management” terms that may get the heck out of you! It gets difficult when you start out.So, here’s a list of “must-know “terms to help you out. Let’s start with the jargon busting!

1.SERP – Search Engine Results Page and Page Rank

Search Engine Results Page is nothing but simply the list of results a search engine provides, after you make a search query. The position of your website in the list of results would be its “Page Rank”. For instance, that if your website is in the Fourth position in the first page for a search result, then we would say that your website has a page rank of #4

2.SEO – Search Engine Optimization

Search Engine Optimization is a buzzword now-a-days; it is a technique to improvise content of  a company webpage by designing its content tactfully in a way to appear more relevant to the search engine, enabling a website to rank higher in order, on a search engine’s results page (SERP). The higher your website’s ranking, more the traffic generated.

3.Keyword

A keyword, as the name suggests, is a word or a phrase that your target audience will use to search for relevant topics on search engines. For Instance, if you are a (say) a Footwear Brand, the relevant keywords could be “Buy Snickers and Loafers” or “Footwear for Men”.

4.Keyword Stuffing

Keyword Stuffing is the method of using too many keywords in content in aspirations  of making your website more visible on search engines result page, when users search writing a query which uses different combinations of those keywords using the search engine. Sprinkling relevant keywords is okay, but never stuff keywords to an extent that the content looks unreasonable, just strive to write great and valuable content for the users with tactfully inserted keywords which seem justifiable to the context of your article.

5.Domain Authority

Domain authority is an quantifiable Index, it is expressed as  a scale from 1-100 that search engines use to analyze how legitimate and authoritative any company’s website is, with respect to the domain names, here, Rank  1 being the lowest rank and 100 being the highest. Here, authority refers to whether your company is the legitimate registered owner of the domain name of your website. The higher your domain authority is, the more Search Engines will trust you.

6.Organic Traffic

Organic Traffic is the traffic that is directed to your website which is singularly generated by a Search Engine simply as a response to any search query which has the same or similar keywords as what you have in your website content. This can be the traffic directed from Yahoo, Google or Bing. It’s also many-a-times referred to as “Free” traffic. Frankly Speaking, the Organic traffic is the best type of traffic in context of your company’s digital marketing!

7.Paid Traffic

Paid search is an interesting advertising strategy for digital marketing. When any company bids on some specific keywords and makes advertisements and promos over the web around those keywords to be displayed on search engines, along with the normally fetched results, when any of the search queries contains the same or similar terms, it may generate additional traffic to that company’s website, which is then “paid for” by the company. Interestingly, these results appear separately, either on the right side, top or bottom of a search results, clearly differentiated from the normal search results in the page, so that they catch the eyes of the users. Paid traffic may also comprise of any form of paid advertisement that directly links the user to your website.

8.Click-Through Rate- CTR

The Click-through Rate typically measures the percentage of audience who actually click on the given link. A Link can be usually placed in an email, website page, an advertisement, etc. The higher the percentage (CTR), the more users did check out your website.

9.Cost per Click- CPC

The Cost per Click is basically a pricing model where companies who want to publicize their product/website (say yours!) are charged by the publishers (i.e. the owners of the website, or a blog) for every click their audience make on your ad posted on their website/blog which directs people to your company’s website.

10.Conversion

Merely clicking on your website’s link may not be always much helpful to you! The user should actually be interested to navigate your website once He/ She lands into it. He/She should get engaged to your content, which then can lead him/her to try out what you have to offer and actually becomes your customer. Thus, when a visitor actually takes any desired action while visiting your site, it is termed as conversion. The ‘desired’ action can be any  interaction where customer seems to be interested, like it can be purchasing your product or service, enrolling in a membership , signup or downloading or registration for receiving monthly newsletters.

360° Photo by Facebook

Previously the publisher of 360°  Photo had to have a complex kind of camera to capture the 360 ° viewing experience. But now user have to click flat photos in panoramic view and Facebook will automatically convert these images into interactive images and then the user can view those images in full screen view by tilting their mobile phone devices. This feature of converting your flat panoramic images to 360° photos will only work with the newly captured photos, hence it will not covert your old panoramic photos to 360° photos.

Now you are confused and thinking how you will differentiate between the simple photos and 360° photos.

This ability of the Camera will give freedom to the user of selecting the angle in which they want to see the scene. Currently facebook 360° Video can be viewed on web, iOS and android device’s. To upload these video’s, the people has to follow the traditional steps of uploading videos.

To create these kind of videos certain steps has to followed-:
