This site is out to stand unique from other thousands of website and blog. WikiTribune readers will find feature stories by acknowledged journalists.

According to reports “Wikitribune is a global news website that will feature stories by licensed journalists; their articles will be fact-checked and vetted by volunteers, and efforts will be made to ensure the maximum possible transparency about the sources of the information for each article.”

The website is non-affiliated this means that the service will be free to read and also ads free. The websites will get it funds from supporter’s contributions. If it reaches its first funding goal, they will hire 10 reporters for a start.

However, on WikiTribune writers will have to give the source of their content this makes it a great tool that the world can rely on.

How to Get Listed in DMOZ



The first thing I do, is go to DMOZ and look for other sites that have been accepted already that are very close to what my site is about. Let us say for example that you had an acne site, what I would do is type into DMOZ and see what sites they show.
In the image below, you will see a category for acne that one of the sites I found was in.


Image

So the first thing you need to work out is what the best category for your site to go into is. DMOZ are super strict with this and if you submit to a wrong category, that can be enough to get your site denied and that at the end of that. When you are confident you are on the right category page, then all you need to do is click the link suggest URL and fill out the form.​

It is also not a bad idea to have a look at the kind of sites that have been accepted in your chosen category and see if there is anything that you can do to your site to help it's chances. One thing I have done in the past is remove all advertising and affiliate links until DMOZ has accepted it, and then later add these back in.​

Another important thing to realize when trying to work out how to get listed in DMOZ is that you can submit your sites again and again, as many times as you like when trying to get in. However you must keep in mind that when you submit your site it goes to the bottom of the pile for review.​

What this means is that if you have submitted your site one day, and then you submit it again a week later, then DMOZ will recognize your domain from the first submission and remove it from the queue and leave your latest one there at the back!​
So what I do is leave it for a month and then submit it again, and I keep doing this every month until I get in. Different reviewers get your site each time so eventually you might get in, and I need to stress might be because it is never certain, and like I said I have yet to get this blog in, but i am still trying and have a reminder in my outlook to keep submitting every month.​

I think directory submissions are worth doing, as long as it is not the kind of directories that guarantee a listing if you pay them, because I don't hink Google would care for that much, but other directories still have a good effect for SEO.​

Why Sms Marketing Is Good For Business Promotion

1. It’s time efficient

Email promotion is amazing. It’s free, it’s effective, and it’s easy to do. But being seated and composing an e-mail needs time, and that’s one thing many of you don’t have.

Reasons Why Traffic So Hard To Get

There is a small secret to it, or well, not a secret but a method I discovered when I first got into blogging for income.

Stop thinking about traffic, income and all of that. Blog about something YOU like and that you KNOW something about. How does this work?
Image

Simple, I used to run an old blog in the gaming niche, I wrote maybe ten posts and after a month, no results. I kinda gave up. Then suddenly one day, I got a traffic report that I had over a thousand daily visitors. I was quite shocked as the only SEO I actually did was using my keywords in the posts.
What made the blog fairly popular in that specific niche was simply that I was human. I didn't act like someone who wanted to make a quick dime. People liked my content and how I interacted with the readers.

While remembering SEO and all related to it, it's still important to write naturally, when it comes to blogs that is. Look at the biggest blogs out there, they write about something they love and get famous for it because of it.

And yes, writing more posts increases your traffic obviously, however make sure to write good. But remember, blogs are blogs, not ecommerce sites, not company sites but blogs.

Note: My blog also offered free products in the niche so that also helped a great deal to get traffic. Also, the niche wasn't saturated, I only had about thirty competing sites, so beating them wasn't hard when I was the only passionate and active person in the niche.

Second note: I just realized that I made a huge post when I could have summarized it all..



3 tips that I have found critical to success:


  1. Headings with questions rather than answers stimulate interest if your audience truly relates. For example, "Are you having a problem losing weight?" rather than, "Weight loss solutions". Then, once they are stimulated to read, connect in to the question in your header. For example, "If you're having a problem losing weight, you're probably feeling discouraged. I know I was, but what I found was......"
  2. Write for your audience not for yourself. Have you got a specific target audience with a real need? Because you need to be writing for them rather than yourself.
  3. Make your content viral by making it entertaining or enlightening and then syndicating it on social media sites.



There's no guarantees in the blogging world, but I hope you find these tips helpful and have great success in the future.

A General Overview about Professionalism in Writing



What is professionalism in writing?
Professionalism in writing is the virtue of writing style with a sincere and specialized focus on the designated subject and the purpose of written communication. Professional approach signifies professional writing skill of the writer along with best productivity out of the writing effort.  But before we lay our focus on professionalism, let’s check first what a professional genre of writing is.

image


What is professional writing?
Professional writing is a paid job a person does. Moreover, it may refer to a specific type of communication used in workplace, and people mostly use it to initiate communication relating to business or a specific purpose. Professional writing is done with a typical official tone and it is explicitly different from creative, artistic, or academic approaches. The main quality of professionalism in writing is about maintaining a formal tone in writing for achieving a specific output or purpose. General purposes of professional writing are the following, either any one of the reasons or a mixture of two or three reasons together:

  • To initiate actions from the readers
  • To instruct the audience
  • To influence readers
  • To inform your target audience
  • To assert an assigned goal.



What is professionalism in writing?
In this context if the question is raised “what is professional writing”, the answer will be an extensive list perhaps.  In short, the texts which are done for professional purposes, like business letter, business email, sales letter, white letter, press release, marketing communication, etc. are some common examples of professional writing. If the writing is done in an organized way, keeping complete focus on result/output, it adheres to the rules of professionalism in writing.


The rules of maintaining professionalism in writing
There is no formula for maintaining professionalism in writing because professionals consciously modulate their writing style according to target audience. Still, a few general rules help in maintaining professionalism in written communication. These are:

  • Straight approach of writing with comprehensiveness and clarity (for readers to understand the communication readily)
  • What is written has to be errorless in terms of language, approach, and spelling
  • Writing style should be to-the-point and mostly unbiased
  • Communication should be flawless in terms of authenticity and linguistic accuracy
  • Ability to identify the target audience and talent to create content for motivating the target audience.


These are the general rules of inducing professionalism into your writing style. Besides accuracy and authenticity, readability of a write-up also displays the professional talent of the writer.
Professionalism and technical writing
Technical writings are business writing and these are done with a specific target of communication. Business organizations employ writers to develop content in order to convey precise information to the target audience. Professionalism in technical writings means,

  • Authenticity, clarity, and accuracy
  • Comprehensive writing style that readers will understand and appreciate
  • Subject-centric, concise, and informative expression.

If a writer adopts a professional approach in presenting the topic via his write-up, he will be able to introduce smart professionalism in his writing style. However, it is still vital to know how to write with professional efficiency. Let’s check here.


How to write with professional skill
All professionals are not experts. Similarly, all writers are not professionally proficient. But following a few tips, a writer can add a smart professional pitch in his writing. A few professional writing tips are shared here for ready reference of newbies.



  1. Always maintain authenticity. As a writer, your duty is to convey best information to your reader. Maintaining authenticity of information is one of the obligations of a writer to his readers, which is a part of his professionalism.
  2. Be concise. A professional writer should know how to keep his readers captivated as readers expect peppy, concise, and relevant information from a professional write-up. Also, a consistent flow of language makes writing style crisp, which is a mark of writer’s professional proficiency.
  3. Introduce a format. An expert writer should maintain a format in his writing. There should be an introduction, the main context of writing piece, and a conclusion with a clear call to action on each communication.  The talent of inducing the format along with relevant readability is one of signs of professionalism.
  4. The writing has to be visually appealing. When a write-up becomes visually appealing, it becomes more memory-friendly and attention-grabbing. Adding subheadings, bullets, infographic, etc. will help readers to get the main point. This consequential communication is considered as the display of writer’s professionalism.



These are some aspects of professionalism in writing. In one word, when a written communication serves its optimal purpose of convincing its readers about the intrinsic purpose, it is considered that the writer has induced professionalism in writing.

Online Business Vs Offline Business Which Pays More?

author-pic About author
Kayode Oluwatobiloba Emmanuel He is a Blogger, a Freelancer, a Business Psychologist and a Motivator.

He owns www.dailyguide.com.ng where he shares tips and secrets on business success and motivates youths for financial buoyancy.







Firstly, I want to give kudos to everyone in the business world, it takes the hunger and thirst for greatness for one to leave his/her comfort zone to venture into this present competitive business world.

This is a very controversial issue I decided to write on, I have seen people argue on this topic and I have also seen investors pounder on which of the market to venture in.

May I start by saying both the online business market and offline business market has their own respective advantages and disadvantages.

It is normal for online business gurus to want to defend their market and the same with offline business people.

Holding to the above statement, I still maintain that they both pay and they pay well. Irrespective of the on you go for, what matters most is your ability to groom and build your business.

If offline business happens to be better of, if you don't still manage it well, it will still be as good as useless. Venturing into the business world requires you to think which one you really want to do and can handle.

Most mistake of people often come from covetousness and indecisiveness. Just because you heard there is this online deal that pays like ritual you jump into it whereas the main place where you can function and get cool cash and recognition is offline.

I can categorically say that the online market is getting new people on daily basis.

• Everybody wants to be a blogger

• Everybody wants to be a site owner

• Everybody wants to be a content marketer and so on.

Offline business are also getting lots of intakes on daily basis. Different types of products being introduced.

There is money online and there is money offline. None is better than the other, there is none that won't give you the returns you want. All is based on your;

1. Management skill and

2. Marketing skill.


Below I will be stating some business idea in the online market.

• Affiliate marketing

• Blogging

• Auction selling –eBay

• E-Book Publishing

• Website flipping business

• Research and sell information online

• Start Trading Forex Online

• Web hosting reselling business

• Web Design

• Social Media Consultancy

• Web Promotion

• Become a Freelance Writer

• E-book cover designer etc


From the offline business market, we have

• Bulk sms business

• Web design

• Photography and video coverage

• Event management and decoration

• Uni-sex saloon

• Cleaning agency

• Supplies

• Advertising Agency

• Laundry Service

• Cosmetics Supply

• Career Counseling

• Catering service etc.

Both platforms carries wonderful opportunities and business ideas, none can be said to be better than the other.

Getting into any of the market requires you to seat and think on how much capital you have and how good you will be able to give in what it takes.

Use the comment box for questions,contribution and advise seeking on any of the businesses.

A slow website will result your loss of conversions from visitors who are currently on your site, this in turn results in loss of potential readers and fans, some factors which can make your website slow include:

[i]. Unoptimised pages
[ii]. Uncompressed https
[iii]. Javascript issues
[iv]. Website layout (this is very important because visitors mainly scan through the contents rather than read them)
[v]. Too much flash etc.



In 2010 Google added site speed to the list of parameters for determining site rankings, now the speed at which someone could view the content from a search result would be a factor.


This boost your site SEO and ranking which definitely increases conversion rates and more clicks. A slow website will not be able to achieve good google ranking and SEO conversion.


2. Web Hosting plan Actually: Your hosting account depends on the price you are ready to pay. The truth is a cheap hosting account could lead to low pagespeed performances. As seen today, a blog starts with little or no traffic and gradually begin to have very large traffic. It is important to know when to upgrade a shared hosting plan or migrate to a virtual server. Having the right hosting account and company to power your blog will ensure you maximum uptime and vice versa.

Homepages are not a blog’s main entry point anymore. It is vital to note that articles, blog posts or any other content that you add on your blog is also attracting traffic, which means every post should be interesting. Always use words everyone can relate to when posting, this makes your content more interesting and relatable.

Top Page Builder Plugins for WordPress

WordPress has a huge amount of great plugins to use, especially when it comes to page builders. Knowing which ones to use can be difficult. To help you out, we’ve listed some of the top front-end and backend page builders for you to view. If you want to create a stunning WordPress page, then these will definitely help you out.

Image


Before we start with the best page builder plugins, please note the difference between theme builders and page builders. The list here only focuses on the latter and if you’re just looking for help with the theme, you might want to consider other plugins.


FastLine

If you want a fast and intuitive builder, FastLine should be at the top of your list. The plugin has a free version, which is enough for most people that are just creating a personal and semi-serious site. If you want something a bit more advanced, you can also upgrade the version.

FastLine has pre-built layouts that make it quick to get started. There’s a slide out window, which you can use to search additional elements and adding widgets and customised layouts won’t take more than a few clicks.


Upfront

Upfront is a great builder and the basic version is free to use. However, if you really enjoy using it, you can always upgrade to reveal some more advanced features.

What can you do with Upfront? The tool allows you to drag, scale, customise and position your elements in real time. It’s perfect for those looking for a simple design and those wanting to create something super innovative. You can add sticky navigation, mega sliders and even Google maps in an instant.


Live Composer

The builder used to be a premium plugin but you can now enjoy it for free. Live Composer offers a lot of elements to help you add images, galleries and stylised fonts to your site. It can also be used to create columns and add new rows to existing layouts. It’s quite easy to use and works well on simple and more demanding sites.



Drag and Drop Builder Plugin

Another super easy to use plugin is the Drag and Drop Builder Plugin. If you’re just starting out and you don’t want to spend hours learning to use the builder, this should be your pick. The free builder does have a solid text editor and it allows you to include sliders, tabs and buttons. It’s great for including basic elements to your site, but you won’t find any fancy features here.



Page Builder by SiteOrigin

SiteOrigin’s plugin is free to use and it’s great for sites that feature plenty of widgets. The builder allows you to add a number of widgets on the site – including things like self-hosted videos, calls to action, and galleries. Its price boxes are also perfect for websites selling items.
 SiteOrigin is rather basic, but if you don’t require a lot of fancy elements, it might be just what your site needs.



VelocityPage

For those looking for a more advanced experience, VelocityPage is worth considering. The drag-and-drop builder is not free, but there are different packages available to cater to your needs.

It works with most of the WordPress themes, although you definitely want to consider using one of the plugin’s own themes for best functionality. There are enough features to create customised designs with VelocityPage and using the site is rather intuitive and simple.



WR Page Builder

WR Page Builder, which was previously known as IG Page Builder, is a great free builder. It also has the option for paid upgrades, if you require a bit more juice from your builder. WR Page builder is super simple to use – perfect for those that are just starting out in WordPress. The layouts on offer are responsive and good for creating innovative pages.

You can also use the builder for posts or pages. It provides you with widget support, built-in shortcodes and tons of other styling options. There’s also a preview mode, which guarantees you don’t need to worry about unfinished designs going live.



Visual Composer

If you’re willing to fork out a bit of cash, you should consider Visual Composer. The builder is a popular plugin, as it’s been used to create themes on sale at Themeforest.

Image



However, the plugin is not the easiest to use if you have no experience on page builders. The editing is a bit more complex and the layouts can be harder to implement than in some of the above drag-and-drop builders. However, if you’re willing to learn and you’re already seasoned in WordPress, then give this builder a go.

So, if you are looking to create yourself a WordPress page and you need an innovative way to build the page, consider some of the above page builders. Don’t forget that you can find books to learn more about WordPress and web building online. Check out www.hotuksavings.co.uk for savings codes to retailers like Amazon and AbeBooks.

Once you pick your favourite page builder from above, you can start building your dream site!
