STOIC, is a powerful app and service I found while browsing the Apple Gazette Kickstarter store and this one is a must-have for businesses and the individual practitioners alike. Stoic, to put it simply, allows you to convert your spreadsheet data such as Google Sheets or Excel to complete and functional applications with cloud-class databases and mobile user interfaces.
STOIC is built to work seamless with tools we use everyday like email clients and spreadsheet editors and building apps is as easy as importing existing spreadsheets or creating one from scratch with their interface. They also offer API’s to be used by developers to connect apps with other CRMs and cloud based services like Facebook or Salesforce.com. Read More
Aren’t you glad the month is over (well, almost)? That means we can have a brand new start once again tomorrow!

On the Internet, you can be anyone you want to be. We all know that, and many an individual has learned a lesson from not remembering that “saying”.
With the way technology is evolving and becoming even more integrated in our everyday lives, however, it seems that instead of being “anyone” on the Internet, it could be “anything”.
Welcome to the Internet of Things. Read More
The once popular guest blogging marketing technique has been experiencing tough times recently as the method of promoting oneself and brand is being viewed as a spammy, low quality practice. The reason for this is that so many “online marketers” have been littering the web with low quality, oftentimes stolen content as a means of contributing to the target blogs. These guest bloggers approach sites offering to write articles free of charge while only requiring a couple links back to their sites in an effort to build their link popularity, to name a few. Many of these sites being linked to have bad reputations in Google as either spammy or malicious and thus degrades the quality of the linking host’s blog in the process. A majority of guest bloggers in the blogosphere have become like a virus.
How secure are you when you surf? If you don’t use a VPN service, the answer is probably “not very”. You could be exposed to all kinds of hackers, phishers, and malware bent on getting your private and personal information. Identity theft is nothing to play around with.
Kepard provides premium VPN service to help you stay secure and keep your private information private. That already sounds pretty good, right? Well, what if you could get that service for free for three months? Even better, right? Read More
A blogger has so many tools at his disposal, that sometimes, instead of being an advantage, the fact becomes a hindrance. From productivity apps to to-do lists to calendars to newsreaders – there comes a point when one just simply shakes his head at all the choices.
Then there are other tools such as VPN services, mobile Internet providers, mobile Wi-Fi hubs, tablets, and the list goes on and on.
We’re zeroing in on VPN services in this post for one simple reason: privacy. Read More

With the rising trend of mobile devices, and consumers using them to access the Internet, responsive design is a critical starting point.
Not only does it reduce bounce rates, increase time on site, and lead to higher revenues, it also your brand’s credibility, trustworthiness, and reputation online. Read More
Search engine optimization is evolving at record pace and failing to keep track of the changes and growth will undoubtedly lead to significant website traffic loss. The rate of change can be daunting to follow as Google’s team learns to respond quicker to the web and become more efficient at spotting growing trends that are hurting the market. In spite of all these changes I note one common factor in every decision they make and that’s pleasing their customers, who are users of the search engine, keeping results relevant. Its that simple and that’s their search business. The better results they provide, the greater the value of their search product for users and advertisers.
Once you understand their intention and what you as the user really want, things become much clearer and you’ll begin to understand most of the decisions they make as they change algorithms and can even predict future changes and plan ahead.
Online marketers have often been disappointed and enraged by Google’s many changes to signals that adversely affect marketing techniques that have worked for the majority for years. So from the marketers’ perspective that’s years of hard work down the drain. However, I truly believe that aligning marketing activities with giving users’ quality content will always land you in a safe spot. So, keep your efforts geared towards that.
Here are 3 powerful tactics that Google is clamping down on and how you can still get the most out of them. Read More
