How Correctly Revise your Paper


If you think that the actual process of crafting the dissertation is your primary task, then you would be right, but only partially. The thing is that even though you will spend hours researching the topic and then putting your findings into words, but you might spend as much time on revision. The quality review can make all the difference for the thesis in general.



So, if you were not going to revise the paper once you finish it, then you should change your mind now and make it much better with our simple steps. But first things first: why revising the thesis after all? Experts at essayamerica.com are ready to help you revise your paper 24/7.


Why you should revise the paper


  • There are many possible answers to this question. But we have decided to pick the most relevant ones. 



  • It will prepare you for the defence of your thesis. Nothing helps you memorise the things more than going over them several times in a row. So, revision can be of much help to you here. 


  • It will strengthen your image of an excellent student. When your dissertation looks flawless, you automatically create a positive image for yourself which is always a good idea. 



  • It will help you improve your writing skills. The next time you get down to composing a big piece of writing, you will know what the most common mistakes you make and be more attentive to avoid them. 



  • It will make you less affected with the criticism. It is the case when you start revising the paper after someone has made some comments on what to change and how to make it better. 






H1 How to revise the thesis 

Now, as you understand all the reason about the dissertation revision, you should get down to the actual process of review. It goes down to four main things: 

1. Grammar checking. 
2. Spelling correction. 
3. Rephrasing. 
4. Cutting some parts out. 


There is no need in explaining how each of these parts is essential to the general quality of the thesis. But to make sure you are doing everything right, follow these steps when reviewing your dissertation. 



1. Print out the hard copy of the thesis. It is easier if you can edit the hard copy and then add these comments to the actual document.

2. Focus on one problem at a time. For instance, it is better if you can focus on grammar checking first, and go over the whole thesis checking it. And only once you are done with it, you should proceed to the checking the spelling.

3. Use professional help whenever possible. It will save your time significantly. Thus, instead of checking everything yourself, you can contact writing services like ours and get our assistance in no time.

How to Boost Traffic from Bing

In my experience there is a difference between Google and Bing metrics when it comes to search engine rankings and I would say that it's easier to rank in Bing rather than in Google.

Image

Organic SEO is all you need to rank in Bing. My website in Bing ranks 4th or 5th and its 10 months now in the rankings.
When it comes to Google it's really hard due to the major updates and minimal change in the metrics of algorithm everyday in Google. Unique, interesting, and fresh content that will benefit your targeted audience will be your best tool to rank in Google.


Performing the following actions might help your blogs to get ranked in Bing.


  • Submit Sitemaps and Submit URLs.
  • Verify Ownership of your blogs.
  • Use Diagnostics & Tools, Keyword Research, Link Explorer
  • Test Fetch as Bingbot
  • Use SEO Analyzer after modification in your site/theme etc.
  • Verify Bingbot

Finally  I have realized that getting ranked in bing is easier than google. Atleast the jump from 100 to 30 is fast.

Here are some of the things that have helped

1. On - page optimization
2. interlink the keyword from within the domain
3. external link with anchor text
4. a little bit of social media and social bookmark for the page.



The verification process is similar to Google Webmaster tools. You can also submit sitemaps and will get diagnostic information. While you won't get as much traffic from Bing as you will from Google - by a LONG SHOT. It's still worth it to do. These days you have to take advantage of every search engine opportunity - another SEO! - and Bing is key.

author-pic About author
Adam is a Master in Digital Marketing from the Bradford University and has also done numerous Google Certification courses. she is not only a professional blogger but also providing his expertise in marketing to the online academic writing companies who provide the assignment assistance online to the students in need.






Digital marketing is the name of the game which is not only making the rich richer but also helping the newbies to earn more. With the help of digital marketing, numerous businesses are reaching out those customers whom they cannot reach physically. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and many other social media websites are the preferred platforms of the digital marketers to build their business. Moreover, these websites are also providing assistance to digital marketers by introducing new and helpful updates in their algorithm. Though, YouTube is a website which is winning the game by offering great opportunities for earning with the help of AdSense.

Image


Since the YouTube made earning money easy for everyone, many people are in search of finding the ways through which they can increase their earning. Being a digital marketer, I also get such questions from layman a lot. That is I decided, to write an article in which I can help you people by mentioning the ways through which anyone can increase YouTube RPM to boost AdSense earnings.



Improve Your Videos:
You must be doing your best for making your videos different and unique from others and entertaining. That is why I am not asking you to improve your videos but suggesting to improve the environment of your videos. You have to manage your videos in a way that it look to be a well-organized page which you can make by below points.

•    You have to make YouTube-friendly videos. Your videos should look raw instead of too much formal like the movies or TV series. People like to see raw footages from which they can relate themselves. That is why your videos should be YouTube friendly.

•    Do not upload your videos randomly. You have to schedule your post. If you have the subscribers, then they should know your pattern and schedule of posting the videos. This will not only make you keep your channel subscribed but also will help you in earning from the AdSense. If you post 50 videos in the first month, you will not earn anything due to low views. But if you plan it and post according to your subscribers then you can earn through this.

•    Describe your videos in detail. Use some SEO tactics by giving the right tags to your videos so it can be shown on searching on the search engines.

•    Create a catchy thumbnail through which the YouTuber gets attract and click your video.





Improve your YouTube AdSense Ads:
The best way to improve your earning through YouTube RPM is to get the ads which are most willing to pay you. You are a YouTube partner, and the first thing you can do to increase your ads is to get listed on the search engines result page. You should use high ranking keywords in the description of your channel or your videos so the Google or any other search engine can show your channel at the top of its result page. The better your keywords would be, the more traffic you will get. More traffic means better ads showing which will ultimately transform into your earning.

Build a long-term viewership YouTube Channel:
Your luck can work in a couple of videos which could be a bedrock of your channel. However building a long term viewership YouTube channel is not an easy task. For this, you have to do a complete branding of your channel. If you have any blog, website or company, then you should carry your logo and colors in your videos too. This will help your users to connect your presence in different places. If you only have your channel, then you must carry your style throughout in your videos, thumbnails and the theme of your channel too. You can do this by completing all of your profile information, by using a customized cover photo or by customizing your background by using a color which suits the style or branding of your company.


Social Shares:
Using all the social media platforms can make you earn a lot. Not every Internet user visit the YouTube daily. Many use Facebook, many who are on Twitter and many only have an account on LinkedIn. Use these platforms as well to divert the users of these platforms towards your YouTube channel. This will not only help you in reaching out a broader audience but also help you in getting more views which are the most basic need to increase your AdSense earnings.


Getting the social media shares and likes is a viral sign for the YouTube that a particular channel is getting the better reach which means this should deserve better ads which in turn increase YouTube RPM. Try to increase engagement on your videos on the social media platforms because this is the only factor which increases the YouTube RPM and can help you in earning a lot.

How to Gain more Traffic from Facebook

Facebook is one of the highest traffic websites in the world, and it’s the best social media powerhouse as of the writing of this guide. With this much clout, is it any wonder marketers are still clamoring to discover new ways to use the site to generate traffic?  A lot of social sites have lost traction recently. YouTube, for example, has lost a significant amount of traffic in the past year. Facebook, however, is still going strong. It provides a large amount of traffic, and it’s productive, too. 
But marketing on Facebook isn’t as easy as it might seem. To market effectively on Facebook, there are a number of different things you need to be doing, and a lot of people ignore these things or just don’t realize how important they are.  In this guide, you’re going to learn about some of the biggest mistakes people make when marketing on Facebook. You’re going to learn how to avoid these mistakes, and how to turn them around into the most effective marketing campaigns you’ve ever seen.  So let’s get started. 





image






1: Depending on Paid Advertising 
It’s true that Facebook has a relatively effective ad setup. A well thought out ad can definitely perform well, but many marketers seem to think paid ads are the be-all and end-all of Facebook marketing, and that simply isn’t true.  For one thing, many people are “ad blind” and no longer pay attention to “Sponsored Posts”. They have learned what they look like and simply tune them out.  For another thing, Facebook makes it incredibly easy to get traffic without paying for it. So if you concentrate solely, or even mostly, on paid ads, you’re ignoring a huge potential for traffic. (And traffic that costs nothing!)  One of the best things you can do with a portion of your paid ad budget is to spend it on more likes for your page. (Do NOT make that your ONLY ad type, though!) Every “like” is another person you can market to for free through your page instead of having to pay for the ad impression later. Bottom line



Note
Paid ads are great, but you should put just as much effort into building your page.   
 






2: Forgetting the Social Aspect 
Facebook is, above all, a social site. Too many people forget that aspect, and it causes them to miss out on a lot of potential traffic.  You can’t expect to just post, post, post and get results. You need to constantly interact with your fans. When people comment, respond! Be friendly and courteous. This will win fans over quicker than you think!  Also, you must remember that the thing that will get you the most traffic, by far, is for your fans to interact with your page in various ways, such as: 

1. Liking your posts
2. Sharing your posts
3. Commenting on your posts 

Not only will these activities ensure that they see your posts more often (due to Facebook’s newest methods of content delivery), but their friends will also see this activity and potentially get you more likes to your page and your content seen by more people.

Note
Social media networks could increase your site lead




3: Being Overzealous  
Being overzealous is a huge problem on Facebook. In fact, so many pages have become overzealous with their posts that Facebook had to add new algorithms to combat the problem.   Users were complaining that their feeds were being clogged up with dozens of daily posts by the same pages, so they made it so that only a small portion of a page’s posts are actually seen by a particular user.   And yes, this benefits Facebook in the form of “promoted posts”, but this wasn’t the only reason they started limiting the reach of pages.  The fact is, if you post too often, people either won’t see all of your posts or they will eventually “unlike” your page and you’ve just shot yourself in the foot as far as marketing goes.   Post often, and consistently, but don’t inundate your fans with more content than they can handle. Three to five posts per day is generally more than enough. Even one a day is fine.    











4: Ignoring the Rules 
Facebook has a number of rules that you must obey if you want to market successfully without risking your account. The sad fact is that most marketers, or even individual users, don’t read the rules, thus they miss a lot of important ones and break them inadvertently.  For example, did you know about these rules regarding cover photos? 

1. You cannot include any pricing or purchase information on your cover photo. This includes text such as “buy it now” or discounts like “25% off this week only”.
2. You cannot include any calls to action whatsoever. You can’t ask people to like, share, comment, etc.
3. You cannot include any contact information on your cover photo. That means no URLs or email addresses!  Most users simply don’t know these rules exist.  Admittedly, the rules are daunting. The terms and conditions are very long, and can be time consuming to wade through. However, if you’re serious about marketing on Facebook, it’s vital that you become familiar with the rules and obey them carefully. Take the time to learn the rules before you lose everything you’re working for!







5:  Being Lazy 
Laziness is the kiss of death of just about any venture, but if you fail to adequately complete your company’s page, you might as well not be using Facebook for marketing at all.  If you’re going to go into this halfheartedly, you might as well not go into it at all. 
Be sure to fill out your profile completely. Yes, it takes time to add your company’s URL, add information to the “about” section, create and add a cover photo and profile picture, etc. But it’s well worth it to ensure the information your fans care about is accessible when they need it.  Also, don’t get lazy with your socialization. I know this was mentioned earlier in this guide, but it cannot be overstated. If people take the time to comment on your page or your posts, respond to them! Taking the time to respond to each and every comment will show your fans you care.  Take a look at the pages of brands like McDonald’s and Olive Garden. These brands take the time to respond to user comments, and they are rewarded with passionate, loyal customers who buy from them again and again.  









6: Caring Too Much About Likes 
Sure, likes are a great metric to pay attention to, but if you focus solely on getting more likes to your page, you’re ignoring the big picture.  Likes are but one aspect in a large number of factors. A page could have a million likes, but if those users aren’t properly cultivated and managed, they could be all but useless.
Whereas a small loyal following of just a few hundred could be invaluable if they have been treated properly,  Don’t focus so much on how many likes your page has, or on how many likes your content receives.  
Instead, focus on results, such as: 
1. Are users sharing your content?
2. Are you seeing more traffic to your website?
3. Are you seeing more sales? 
Likes will always be an important metric, but ultimately if they aren’t benefitting you in some way, they’re pretty much useless. 









7: Too Much Text 
One thing you should always remember about Facebook is that it is an increasingly visual media. Facebook users aren’t big on reading walls of text. They like things short and sweet.  Use photos to attract attention and keep text to a maximum of a couple of paragraphs. If people see too much text, they may not read it at all (even part of it) because it seems too daunting.  Have you ever seen someone comment on a post? That means “Too Long; Didn’t Read”. This is a very common acronym on Facebook, because people just don’t have the time or desire to read that much.  Focus more on visual aspects, and condense your marketing messages into the shortest, most concise text possible. Ensure that your marketing message isn’t lost in a sea of unnecessary words. 













8: Not Focusing on Branding 
Too many people post irrelevant content simply to get attention, but this is a mistake. You need to keep at least 90% of the posts you make focused on your brand.  Does that mean you need to ensure 90% of your posts are marketing? Absolutely not! In fact, that would be counterproductive, because people would eventually start to tune you out. They might even “unlike” your page. But if you’re running a page to market your internet marketing eBook, don’t share a bunch of kitten pictures or political stuff. (In fact, don’t share anything polarizing like political or religious posts. You may endear one side to you, but the rest will potentially be offended.) Whatever you are selling, try to stick to things that really fit your brand. If you’re selling a pet related product, it’s ok to share cute animal pictures. If you’re selling a cookbook, post recipes and pictures of food, Just try to remain consistent with your brand.   











Mistake #9: Ignoring Insights 
Facebook offers page owners Insights for a reason. It’s useful data, and it can be invaluable. The data they offer can tell you a lot about your fans and what you can do to reach them.  One useful metric is the “Friends of Fans” metric. This tells you how many total friends your fans have altogether, which is ultimately your potential reach unless a post goes viral in a big way. For example, you may have 4,000 fans, but if those fans have a total of 1,200,000 friends, you have the potential to reach all of those people when your fans like and share your content. 
Did you know the average consumer is more than 50% more likely to purchase something if they know their friends have bought it? That’s one thing Insights can tell you – how many friends you can potentially reach through your fans. (People who are more likely to buy, or at least become a fan, because their friend is a fan) Another useful metric is the “People Talking About This” metric. This will tell you how many people are talking about your brand recently, which tells you whether or not you’re doing a good job with your branding. If people aren’t talking about you, you’re probably doing something wrong. 









10: Being Boring 
If all you’re doing is posting generic marketing messages every day, chances are you’re going to fail miserably on Facebook. People want to see posts that are interesting or exciting. They want to share that type of content with others. And sharing means a larger reach! 
List o of content you can share: 
1. News (specific to your market/industry)
2. Videos
3. Pictures
4. Memes
5. Educational posts, tutorials, and how tos 
You definitely don’t want to share a lot of stuff that people aren’t going to pay attention to. It’s just a waste of time.  Instead, focus on brand-centric content that will grab attention and encourage sharing. Make posts that are funny, shocking (but not offensive), or useful. This is the kind of content that will really bring attention to your brand.







 Conclusion 
Facebook marketing really isn’t all that difficult if you know these mistakes to avoid, but can be very tricky if you don’t!   Most people know what they should do to market their business on Facebook, but so many just don’t know what they should NOT do. Hopefully, now that you’ve read through this guide, you’re one of those who know what to avoid.  Why waste your time posting on Facebook if your posts end up ignored, or worse, you end up banned because you mistakenly broke a rule you didn’t even know existed?  Take the time to read and understand the rules. Be sure you’re posting content that is interesting and relevant to your brand. Focus on the things that matter, like traffic and income, not just likes.  You can get a tremendous amount of traffic from Facebook if you really take the time to do it right.

Choosing the Best Power Bank

author-pic Author Bio:
My name is Usman Haq. I'm currently an engineering student and I love to write about tech. Take a visit to my website ChargerHarbor.com to know more about what I write about.







Power banks are fastest growing charging electronics on the market. The main reason for that is because power banks are portable chargers that can be taken anywhere and everywhere. Before power banks existed, we were forced to use USB wall chargers and the thing with wall chargers is that our devices that are charging must stay close to the USB charger in order to charge.



Power banks have solved that problem though, as we’re able to charge our devices while we’re on-the-go. With that said, since power banks have become so popular, there are quite a lot companies that now sell power banks. This is both a good and bad thing. The part of this is that there’s more variety to choose from among power banks and there are more innovations. However, the major flaw of this is that there are lots of companies that sell low-quality power banks.



Ultimately, it can be difficult to know what power banks are right for you and what you should be looking for when you purchase a power bank. In this article, I’ll be going the major points that you should look for in a power bank when you’re about to purchase one.




The Kinds of size and Power Capacity that you’re searching for 


Image







A power bank is built on its power capacity and the reasons that I say that is because that’s what makes it a portable charger. With that said, the power capacity is in control of two major things. That would the amount of full charges that your devices are able to get; as well as the size of the power bank.




Which means that there are two main types of power banks are the market. These two types are basically present with every type of power bank on the market and that means you’re going to have to have a little bit of sacrifice when you choose one over the other.





Image

Power banks that have Low Power Capacities - Power banks that have low power capacities are ones that are used the most. The reason for that is because since they have low power capacities, it means that there are fewer batteries being used. In most cases, with power banks that have power capacities of 3,000mAh to 5,000mAh; those types of power banks just use a single battery. As a result, they’re able to fit into your pocket and you can hold them.


Of course, with many things in life, there’s equivalent exchange when it comes to Mini power banks. And in this case, it would be that you’re only able to charge most smartphones once or twice before they’re fully depleted of their power. So they’re not long lasting.


Image

Power banks that have high power capacities - However, there are power banks that have higher power capacities and these ones are not used nearly as much as those Mini power banks. The reason for that is because they have many batteries that are larger; so the power bank itself is larger. For what these power banks lack with their portability, they make up for it with their powering. That’s because they have power capacities that are high enough to charge most smartphones and tablets to full power many times.




Charging Power

Image

Charging speeds are very important for power banks because it’s the way that you can actually experience a power bank. If get a power bank with slow 1 Amp charging speeds, then it’s going to take a while for your smartphone to fully charge and even longer if you’re charging a tablet with that kind of speed. Which is why it’s vital to purchase a power bank that has fast enough charging speeds that your devices charge to full power at a good pace and then you can stop relying on the power bank.




Which is why it’s best to own a power bank that has a charging speed of 5V/2.0A or higher. The reason for that is because most smartphones are able to charge at their max charging speeds at 2 Amp. For tablets, a 2.4A charging speed is a max speed.

Image


With that said, it's also important to know about special charging techs like Quick Change or USB-C ports that some power banks may feature. Since there are lots of power banks on the market that feature such charging technologies and it’s best to use those devices with the technologies that they’re compatible with; because that would result in faster charging speeds.



Another important part about charging is the recharging speed of a power bank. A fast recharging is vital because it’s basically how fast you’re able to use the power bank again. Most Mini power bank has somewhat slow recharging because they have low power capacities and they’re fast to refill anyways. As for high capacity power banks, those are the ones that are the most important to have fast charging speed with. The reason for that is because you don’t want a high capacity power bank to have a single Input port to have a recharge speed of 5V/1.0A. Since that would result in a very long recharge time.



Instead, most good quality power banks have a 2A Input speed, some of them use two Input ports for double the recharge and some even use Quick Charge or USB-C for recharging.


 Brands of Power Banks
Image




Since there are so many companies that sell power banks on the market, it’s vital to purchase from companies that know what they’re doing. I say that because there are quite a lot of companies that sell power banks, and they state how their portable chargers are among the best. Yet their power banks have slow charging, larger sizes than needed and they have short warranties.



Companies that sell good quality power banks are ones that know what their product is capable of and they know what they’re selling. This means they have special techs like USB-C or Quick Charge, their power banks have good reviews, and they have long warranties that basically affirms that the company stands behind their products.

How Would you Beat Competitors?

Since Internet offers many possibilities for development and advertising of your business I think you should use its potential. You mentioned the weakness of your competitors - online marketing. Using communication channels like Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, also Google Adwords, etc. will help you gain better positions than your competitors.

Image


If you are not enough experienced with advertising in these channels or with SEO techniques at all you can hire an external company to do it for you.



1) Low price
2) Good quality
3) Good service

Choose the TWO that are most important to you and FOCUS on them. If you try to focus on all three, YOU WILL FAIL since it is IMPOSSIBLE to do all three at the same time.

In general, it is ALWAYS better to focus on QUALITY and SERVICE. Buyers will remember your quality and service long after they have forgotten your higher price. Playing the low price game with giants is usually the losing position to be in, but giants have a very hard time playing the quality and service games, so a small competitor can usually run rings around the giants there.



Use social media, enhance your website, use Google Adwords or whatever lets you reach your target market in the most effective manner. It can be quite costly, but that's just a matter of allotting the right budget on the right campaigns. But I suggest you really get the best use out of social media; pal, that's free!

About inviting more customers or enticing the competitor's customers to your business, well, give them the best value out of their purchase! What can you offer? Can you give out discount vouchers or a certain amount off when they do it online? That sounds a great idea.
