BestBuy, GearBest, and Amazon – A Comparison

Online shopping is one of the rising trends that are ruling the world of e-commerce today – the center of online business and trade. There are different online shopping platforms that are used by buyers to search for, navigate through, pick and buy products online across the US. We are going to discuss and compare three of the most widely used ones below. 

Amazon

Most of us would be familiar with the industry giant – Amazon. It is one of the most widely used platforms for online shopping across the US. It has the most market share – second to none in terms of the customer base. Sellers from all over the world open stores on Amazon and provide various products to buyers. Amazon ships almost to every country around the world so shopping there is very convenient for international buyers too. It also has the largest variety of products in all domains and niches as it supports different sellers and also invest in affiliate marketing. For those who don’t know what affiliate marketing is – it is a method that businesses use to promote themselves. In this method, the company pays a certain commission from the total price of the product to the person who provides a link to a product to a buyer. Yes, that is why there are so many websites out there that lead you to different Amazon products – they are benefitting from Amazon’s affiliate marketing that creates a win-win situation on both sides.  

BestBuy

Do You Want to Work with IT Trophy Kids?

Do You Want to Work with IT Trophy Kids?

Even though the world today looks like an upside-down, there is a far greater chance that will have a far longer impact than this temporary financial crisis: the arrival of millennials into the IT workplace. Are you ready?

Just to make sure we all talk about the same thing here, the millennial generation was born between 1980 and 2001. With the baby boomer generation preparing to go to sunset, millennials are the new kids in town and they are getting ready to shake things up.

Ron Alsop who writes for the Wall Street Journal has taken the time to learn what this coming means for us all and he wrote a book with the answer in it entitled The Trophy Kids Grow Up: How the Millennium Generation Shakes the Workplace. He found some eye-opening things that all IT leaders need to pay attention to.

Entitled

If we have to describe the views of millennials about work, the word that everyone seems to use is “entitled” – they want it all and they want it now. What are they asking for? What about higher salaries, flexible working hours, promotions in a year, and more vacation / personal time. Why do they think they will get it? Studies show that almost half of the millennial generation has “… beliefs of moderate to high superiority about themselves.”

The Generation That Is Constantly Told That They Are The Best

What’s wrong with them? Where did all this come from? Blame parents (and teachers and trainers). This is the generation that is constantly told that they are the best, who get trophies even when they don’t win and are rarely criticized so as not to damage their self-esteem. Now they are in your IT department …!

Part Of Their Lives Outside Of Work

Discover the Benefits of Information Technology Outsourcing

As a business owner, it is possible to realize that some work will cost a lot of money.

When they know about the benefits, they will see that it can be a great way to save money for the business they are developing, while at the same time completing high-quality work.

The Great Benefit Of Outsourcing This Job

Someone can get more services than what they can afford if they hire someone to do the job. For example, some work that they can cover can be web design, programming, and many other services. Then because they have outsourced the work to others, the costs can be much lower than if they employ someone to do work in the office.

Something else that the people they are hiring are going to be highly skilled. So rather than having to pay the person a huge amount of money for the job a person will realize that they can save money by doing this. Then they can end up putting that money into other things that they need to improve the business that they love.

Many times a person can find that by outsourcing they could find a higher quality result than what they thought about before. The person that is hired in the outsourcing job is going to care more about the quality that they provide to a business owner. That’s because they will want business owners to give them good references for future clients they might have, but also if you need the same type of work again.

This Might Not Need To Pay Taxes

Another thing that business owners can find using this type of work is that they may …
