By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Email marketing is extremely cost effective and one of the most powerful marketing tools available to small businesses.Business owners who spent time and money building their Face book Page discovered in 2013, that Face book is showing their posts to just a tiny fraction of their fans. If they want all their Face book fans to see their posts, they now need to pay Facebook. Facebook owns their network! This change of the rules is a perfect example of why you need to avoid outsourcing your network, to a social network. Email marketing puts you in control and allows you to build an increasingly valuable asset. Follow your intuition, take risks. If you make easy and safe choices, very little worth remembering will ever happen. Understand what people want. What do they see in your technological innovation and the fundamental problem you are trying to solve?.G et lucky. Even with a great idea, an amazing team and solid execution, a little bit of luck comes in handy.With smaller investment with technology enabled business model big companies can be run.Uber world largest taxi company owns no taxi. Airbnb the largest home renting company ,owns no home .That means future rivals wont have to invest heavly on tangible assets either. Many new ideas are taking shape in the business world . The social entrepreneurship has in the raise .The N/Core, the Bengaluru-based incubator for non-profits, has graduated its second cohort of non-profit startups. The incubator programme, in partnership with Mphasis and other corporates, focused this time on startups in the areas of affordable housing, municipality playgrounds, sports training, and ghazal music for school kids. “ The N/Core started this programme because they felt “nonprofits” struggle with a shortage in mentorship and financial support. They don’t enjoy the same privileges or infrastructure that for-profit startups enjoy from VCs, PE funds, incubation centres and the community at large. N/ Core Mentors reportedly are included Pratham founder Madhav Chavan, former Infosys Consulting chairman Sanjay Purohit, Azim Premji Foundation chief endowment officer K R Lakshminarayana, and WestBridge Capital co-founder S K Jain. Reportedly many of the founders in the cohort are graduates of premier institutions like IIT and IIM. Many youngsters are quite courageous in taking the path less travelled. Not many people would give up a stable, high-paying job in a corporate to get into social work”. Of the ten startups incubated, three were from Bengaluru -- Anthill Creations, Bridges of Sports, and MyCityMoney. MyCityMoney helps citizens track the performance and spending of public funds by government bodies. With their cloudbased reporting and analytical tool, they are hoping to empower citizens with better transparency and more prudent financial spending. AntHill Creations, founded by Nancy Charaya and Pooja Rai, hopes to make visually appealing, better designed playgrounds by better utilisation of existing resources. From exploration of industrial waste to local sourcing techniques, Anthill Creations helps local bodies keep costs within budget for more beautiful playgrounds. Bridges of Sports is trying to train children from tribal and underserved communities.The other participants in this incubation programme were Delhi-based Manzil Mystics (music for kids) and Slam Out Loud (poetry, dance, performing arts for kids). From Chennai there was Madhi Foundation and from Pune there was Leadership For Equity, both working to improve teaching in government schools. RightWalk Foundation is aimed at getting the Right to Education implemented, while billionBricks and Eco-habitats are focused on affordable housing for all.
By: M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bengaluru: Purchase and sell and trading is best kind of business. Today everybody is trying to turn into an entrepreneur . Don’t buy things you simply can't afford .If you live above your means, you won't get rich. Even if you start earning more or get a hefty raise, don't use that as a justification to give yourself a lifestyle raise. Work smart and get success, According to financial adviser Ric Edelman, in order to ensure future wealth, you must equally work hard and smart. One way, he suggests, to do that is to invest your money in the stock market or a retirement fund. “You can do this without taking a huge amount of risk, without a lot of effort, and without spending a lot of time,.Put emphasis on earning, Another way to work smart? Increase your earnings, not just your savings.“The masses are so focused on clipping coupons and living frugally, they miss major opportunities,“ reportedly said Siebold .There's no need to abandon practical saving strategies. However, if you want to start thinking like the rich, stop worrying about running out of money and focus on how to make more. A common thread among millionaires is that they develop multiple streams of income and adopt smart savings habits.don't be content with a steady paycheck ,Average people choose to get paid based on time -on a steady salary or hourly rate -while rich people choose to get paid based on results and are self-employed.“It's not that there aren't world-class performers who punch a time clock for a paycheck. But for most, this is the slowest path to prosperity, promoted as the safest,“ said Siebold. “The great ones know self employment is the fastest road to wealth.“While the world-class continue starting businesses and building fortunes, “The masses almost guarantee themselves a life of financial mediocrity by staying in a job with a modest salary and yearly pay raises,“ he added.Note that “everyone has the same opportunity to acquire wealth,“ says self-made millionaire Steve Siebold.But not everyone seizes the opportunity. Be out of comfort zone if you want to build wealth, be successful, or get ahead in life, you're going to have to get used to uncertainty or discomfort. Overcoming fear and taking calculated risks are the key elements to achieving success.“World class thinkers learn early on that becoming a millionaire isn't easy and the need for comfort can be devastating. They learn to be comfortable while operating in a state of ongoing uncertainty,“ said Siebold. Pursue your own dream.If you want to be successful, you have to love what you do -that means pursuing your passion.Too many people make the mistake of chasing someone else's dream -such as their parents' -explains Thomas C Corley, who spent five years researching self-made millionaires.“When you pursue someone else's dreams or goals, you may eventually become unhappy with your chosen profession,“ he said. “Your performance and compensation will reflect it.“ One of the most effective ways to earn more money over time is to invest it, and the earlier you start, the better.You don't have to be an expert about personal finance or use fancy economic jargon to start investing. You don't have to come from an affluent family, and you don't even have to earn a massive paycheck. Start by investing in your retirement savings or a low-cost target date fund and you'll see huge returns in the long run.
