4 Cellphone Etiquette Tips

4 Cellphone Etiquette Tips

Cell phones are great if you want to get into touch with another person. They can also make a life better, but you have to be sure you know what you're doing with one. This article has some guidelines for you to follow to make sure you know how to use a cell phone properly.

When You Drive

If you are driving, it's never a good idea to text someone else. This may also be illegal depending on where you live. The reason why this is dangerous is because it takes you attention off of the road. If you were to strike and kill someone, that is something you can never take back so you need to be sure that you're able to protect yourself and the other drivers out there by only using a text feature when you're stopped.

Don't Shout

Most cell phones were made so that they amplify your voice and you don't have to yell into them. Talk like you normally would and if that doesn't work then look through your settings to see if you can adjust your voice so that you can get someone else to hear you without you having to yell. It will also keep you from letting other people hear what you're talking about to another person.

Pay Close Attention To Things

If you're going to be talking to someone else, you have to make sure that you take your ear off of your phone and speak with that person while the person on the phone waits. If you're driving, you may not want to answer your phone at all just to make sure you're safe.

Texting People

If you really want people to get annoyed with you, then you can start sending them texts as forwards. Basically these things should be avoided at all costs because people don't like spam messages most of the time. Try to avoid insulting people when you text as well. While you may think something is funny, there are going to be people out there that don't think that it's funny and they may quit speaking with you.

Calling At Decent Times

Make it a point not to call someone when they could be busy or asleep. After 10PM most people are going to be in bed. You also should avoid calling someone when you know they have to work because you don't want to interrupt them. If someone doesn't answer, don't call them back a bunch of times either.

Article Builder Review – Better than a Private Label?

Article Builder Review

I think it was just a couple of months ago that I’ve published a post about the Article Builder here in Bloggers Tech blog. Article Builder is a great source of content for posting on your blog or for your link building purpose – when we’re talking about SEO.

So I think it would be just right to share with everyone my Article Builder review. I’ve availed its service just for a day, just to see what’s inside it, get some content and see what it really offers – and of course if it’s worth for your money.

The Article Builder Review

As a SEO specialist myself, working for 3 years in this industry and working with clients around the world I have the experience and knowledge on how important it is (the content) in building quality links to your website.

So as usual, I’ve break down a couple of areas about the Article Builder to discuss and share with you. In this way, we all have a good insight about their service. But first off, let me share with everyone one of the article that I got from Article Builder.


QUALITY OF THE ARTICLE

If you’re able to read at least a paragraph of the article above, it’s actually a good article. Some PLR may be sold for around $5 in this quality (I had some interest in buying PLR articles before) but most of the PLR articles I found are usually bulleted  - to show the main idea or the topics need to be discussed which is good.

UNIQUENESS OF THE ARTICLE

I’ve used the tool in checking the article’s uniqueness and the above article is 0% unique – which means it has been used and published on the other site(s). So, we should avoid this to avoid getting penalized by the search engines and also plagiarism.

That’s the same with PLR articles - there are PLR article sellers out there that sell bulk of articles and to a limited number of buyers only. For example for $15 for 10 articles it will be only sold to 100 buyers and some may sell it to a limited number of buyers but it will cost you more.

The solution to this is to SPIN or rewrite the article. Why do that? Why not write a new one? Well, it will be a lot easier as a blogger or writer to write the article since the article that we’ll rewrite is already there, we just have to change a couple of format, words, and make it as your own. So the article writing is of course will be a lot faster and easier since the idea and information is already there.

ARTICLE NICHE

What’s great about Article Builder is that it caters a lot of niches. So if you have more than 2 blogs and don’t have time to update it (which is very important) or maybe you’re running out of idea (especially if your blog are in different niches), the Article Builder will be totally useful for you.

BETTER THAN A PLR ARTICLE?

Well, if you ask me, if you’re buying PLR articles and have different blogs, need a lot of content, then it would be best to at least try the Article Builder.

So to answer the question, my answer would be YES.

IS IT WORTH IT YOUR MONEY?

As for this, we need to compute it right? So let’s say you update your blog at least once a week (just like here in Bloggers Tech blog) and have 5 blogs. Let’s compute it for next year, shall we? Since it will be too late to compute the expenses you’ll have for this year since it’s already November.

Anyway, the internet has provided me with 52 Monday’s in 2014 but let’s just say we’ll need 50 articles for the year. I’ve also looked up online the price of the cheapest PLR article pack online which is $5 for 5 articles in the same niche.

So here’s my computation:
$5 – per article pack with 5 articles
x10
____
$50
x5 – the number of blogs that you have
____
$250

As we can see, if you’re just willing to add $47 on your expenses on your site you then could be able to update your blog not just once a week but possibly every day and that is catering different blog niches and you can add more blogs and have them all updated every day.

So as for this Article Builder review, if you have different sites and different blogs that you need to update at least once a week then having the Article Builder will be totally worth it. I think this would be ideal to SEO companies who want to give more resources to their writers or want to be able to spin quality articles and produce more articles out of it.

Bloggers Tech Rating on Article Builder

To be able to ensure the great use of the Article Builder and avoid plagiarism and getting penalized by search engines, you’ll need a writer to rewrite these articles or at least an article spinning software like the Best Spinner. So it may cost you more than $297 to make and have the quality article that you need.

I’ll give the Article Builder by Jonathan Leger a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars, since you’ll still need someone else to rewrite the article to ensure its 100% unique. But it’s way better than using scrapping software since this one are well written by human and you can just use other terms for the words in the article.

5 Graphic Design Faux Pas - Avoid These Costly Mistakes

Graphic Design

Never create printed materials out of graphics designed for web pages

This is a very common mistake made by graphic designers who have spent the majority of their time working on web sites.  When one is optimizing a web site, one needs to concentrate on page load times.  As as a result, images are compressed down to the lowest quality possible while still appearing somewhat attractive on a computer monitor.  The problem is that when one uses these same graphics on a high resolution printer, they will typically look very grainy and unattractive.  As a result, one should get a completely separate source of graphics, typically very high resolution stock photos or images that can be found at a number of different sites online, for not a lot of money.

Not accounting for the bleed of a printed page

Computer monitors are precise instruments that display dimensions exactly in line with their dimensions.  However, printers are dealing with sheets of paper fed into them, and there can be slight variations in how the printed page lines up with the edge.  For that reason, it is vital for graphic designers to allow for at least 3mm of image bleed around every edge so that the image does not inappropriately fall off the page in some instances and in others leave an unwanted white border.  A good practice is to supply images in a psd file with different layers in tact so if there is some issue with the way it is printed, the image can be cropped or extended as need be relatively easily.

Using rare fonts and not including them with the output files

The wide variety of fonts out there can be a huge boon for a graphic designer.  No one just wants to see type in Arial or Times New Roman all the time.  However, one has to remember that the particular font you select from one of those massive font packs might not exist on someone else's computer.  If you send a file without embedding a particularly rare font you used, when sent to another machine that software might not know what to do with your font and instead substitute and arbitrary font that does not fit your design at all.  As a result, always make sure to embed copies of any fonts you have used with any file you transfer to someone else if it is not a common standard.

Using printed artwork which uses RGB color schemes

Everyone is familiar that most computer monitors use the standard 3 color RGB display scheme for color output.  However, high end printers often use a different way of generating colors, usually with a minimum of a four color CMYK matrix with perhaps even a fifth color for a metallic impression or UV varnish.  If you have not accounted for this change, then your artwork is not likely to look the same on printed paper as it does on your computer monitor.

Letting aesthetically challenged clients direct your work in the wrong direction

While ultimately the client is paying you for a good design, clients often have really crappy tastes.  If they push things in a bad direction that they like, then your name and reputation could still be attached to the final product.  You can better lead them towards a good design by creating several obviously crappy designs meant to direct them towards the absolutely appealing design you intend for them to chose.  Just note that in certain cases that their taste could be so bad that they actually chose the crappy throw-away design over the masterpiece.  Such is life!
