Why Passionate?

Since the day we are born, we are pampered, of course, some of us are pampered too much but don’t consider yourself lucky for that, you might be missing on something really important in life. As, there lies a huge difference in the people with a Passion &  people without a Passion. And yes, it has the connection to how we are raised to the day we start taking our own decisions.

I’ll rephrase the terms and call them “Passionate” & “Passionless”

When we are passionate about something, we tend to do everything in our power to raise satisfaction levels just because we love to do it… For instances:

1) Someone passionate about “Reading”, would read even on their honeymoon. #Duh!

2) Someone passionate about “Traveling” would make anything possible to travel around.

3) Someone passionate about “Love”, would definitely break out on all boundaries to get it.

So, it’s the bright side of life, it’s what makes a personality complete. With passion, for passion, we do everything we can to reach to a whole new level in life. The equation is also tweaked a little bit when someone is “Passionate” about Airplanes but currently is  into a totally different industry. Now, what happens with such personalities? Nothing much, they find hard to follow their passion, in such a manner that it could be called “Passion Enough”. Still, what could be done? Very much, he/she should find as many ways to read, learn and follow about what interests them the most & who knows, one day they come across a chance to work for that industry. As life is all about getting one OPPORTUNITY. No matter what, do not let your Passion die in you. If that happens, you’re half dead, the very day!

When we are Not Passionate or Passionless about anything around us, what is the motivating element? where are you headed? who is with you?

WHY DOES THIS HAPPEN? There comes in the role of your parents/guardians, how did they raise you? Did they pamper you too much? Did all your work from beginning towards the end? In other words, made you Lousy?

If so, you definitely end up Passionless. Its not much of your fault but then it is when you don’t learn till the time is still on your hands.

It also happens when you’re complete looser in any field you jump into. Be definite that it doesn’t happens because of your stupidity, it happens because of your ignorance towards your heart. Because, you just tend to focus on the things which are soothing to your eye but never care about things that touch your heart.

Its takes a lot for anyone to build up a passion but on the other hand there are cases where it doesn’t take anything for one to build and follow their passion.

Being Passionate for something/someone will always give you motivation from inside but being Passionless will never give you anything positive in life. It has a simple structure “To be respected”, “To learn & grow”, “To be a team-player”, “To do meaningful stuff” & “To be on the winning side”. You just need to trust yourself so much that someone else is bound to trust you on every stage, that maybe your parents, employer or lover or the rest of the world.

I will add TALENT along with Passion as well. If you are keeping any talent with you, nurture it well and bang on well along with your passion. No one can stop you from becoming a ROCK-STAR or a celebrity in your own industry.

Have a PASSION, have a HEART that beats for that PASSION & if you still don’t have one, get started TODAY!

Essentials for e-commerce

When it comes to e-commerce portals, 1st thing which clicks to our minds is “Online Shopping” & so it is in today’s time. E-commerce has been a bit of a buzz word for the last couple of years now. Trading on the Internet is a hugely complex business and extremely simple at the same time with many aspects to consider when designing a successful ecommerce site. The e-commerce websites are planned with different stages and so when created they stay raw until they are surfed for a while and the developer checks for the client feedback. It should completely coincide with the business model and should have no rest because with almost everything changing in this world drastically, the webpages needs to be updated on every second, every minute… so on & so forth basis. Basically, it is a complex methodology to apply.

The major threats before even penning down a dot for e-commerce websites:

a) If the concept already exists? – Web Analysis should be used.

b) Even if we are targeting the same concept for different region, do we have the scope? – Market Analysis tools is should be used.

c) What you are launching has the demand or not? Is your target audience a particular age group, demographic or generic? – Market Analytics & Surveys should be taken into account.

The reason why the above three things are called threats, rather than stages, is the daily changing world. We all know the story of the biggest Social Media Website “Facebook”, thanks to The Movie – The Social Network. Similarly, every idea is important and even more significant is the implementation and extremely critical is to market and keep a check so as no one hinders the growth.

The essential stages of e-commerce website are:

e-commerce stages

1) Thought – Think upon 100 times

2) Brainstorming – Calculate possibilities over & over again

3) Identifying Audience – Strictly “No” mistakes at this stage

4) Pen the Layout – User-Friendly Interface

5) Market Research – Risk Management

6) Web Analytic’s – Calculate the successful & unsuccessful models till date

7) Content Development – Significant, precise and smart

8) Marketing – Focus on it to the core & spend a lot on it for the start

9) Branding & Merchandising – Good strategy to sustain in a thickly competitive market

It is a viz-a-viz process of and each stage has its own complications. Every stage needs to be given equal attention. Apart from the essentials there are some more things which need to be taken into a fair account. They are:

Research & Strategy:

Key factors here are: Customer Interview, Understanding of the target Audience,  Competitive Analysis, SEO Keywords Search, Managing Objectives & Client Experience

Planning:

Key factors here are: Prioritization of target audience & creating persona’s, Functional Requirements, Content Requirements, Technical Requirements, SEO Requirements, User-friendly interface, Creative Brief

Information Architechure:

Key factors here are: Navigation Tree, Schematic Diagrams, Labeling Architecture, Detailed functional design, User Experience guidelines, Pricing strategies.

By keeping these e-Commerce essentials in mind when drafting the new e-commerce site, a strategic approach can always give the best results no matter what expectations you have today. In the computer savvy world of today, everything of this sort gets the market by Social Media and if the offerings made are good enough, it catches fire. In the end, following a well-rounded e-Commerce site development plan will ensure your new online business keeps customers (and search engines) coming back while opening the door for more expansive growth in the future as the e-tailer landscape continues to evolve.

Not only once built its over and you don’t need to see it for a while or like that but there is a constant process or should I say the e-commerce cycle which needs to be followed to keep in line with the market & to stay the least affected by the competition. On the left hand side, given, is the e-commerce web-cycle, each of the stages in this cycle are significant but the two most crucial ones which needs to be up-to-date are the Usability & Security.

There is a special feature of e-commerce portals, “PAYMENTS”. Now, again going to the 1st stage of thought process & coming over to the integration part, payments section is very crucial & it completely depends upon the kind of portal which is about to be launched and what does it demand to sustain. Like, if it is a online retail store, it will demand all types of payments, such as “payment by Credit Card, Debit Card, Net Banking, Cash on Delivery etc. It should be as user friendly as possible because after one, chooses what to buy, no one has a habit of wasting more than required time. But on the other hand if it is just one thing, such as “book store” or “gemstones”, which fall into different pricing analysis may require different kinds of payment types.

We also have some live examples of such websites which have gained immense popularity and profits  in a very short span of time. To name one of two would be rude but I am sure we all know them very well. Always follow a process/procedure. Shooting in the air would have 1% of the chance of getting a hit. Planning a shoot, has 99% of chance of the hit.

Always remember: “CONNECTING WITH YOUR AUDIENCE IS THE KEY FOR E-COM WEBSITES”

So, give them all reasons to trust you, to befriend with you, love you, accept you.

Necessity of a Religious Book

Except the religions of Indian origin, each and every religion of the world possesses a divine book, which prescribes their religious duties and moral code for their followers. But it does not mean that the religions of Indian origin do not have their own religious books, only problem is that among the somatic religion, each and every religion have only and the only book, which is considered as divine and authentic, which the religions of Indian origin possesses many books and they consider all of them as divine and authentic. But among the religions of Indian origin in due course of time, Hinduism accepted Gita, as their authentic and divine book. Similarly, the Buddist accepted Dhammapada as their authentic religious book. But their was a problem with Jainism because of their different sects, Shwetambaras accept the Uthradhayana as their authentic religious book where as Digambaras do not accept it as an authentic book. Thus there was no any common authentic book which was accepted by both sects. Though in Shwetambra Munis were not accepted by the Digambaras.

All this created the so called united Jain religion with great values which could have been greater. The scholars are extremely good speakers of the society and surprisingly, people do act on their saying as well but what is happening actually? Did anybody tried to notice? Answer is “No”. Suppose, there are 100 total values prescribed by Lord Mahaveera for Jainism, now, obviously there is no record of these, so, people took what they liked and started preaching. A valid question comes to my mind instantly after listening to this that why does a Digambara prefers a naked body and handful of lunch & dinner & if this was prescribed by Lord Mahaveera, why does Shwetambaras, reject this and follow a particular clothing sense and eat in their own vessels. This is just one question raised, I am sure of “n” no. of questions lined up which are still unanswered and I don’t see anybody even answering the same. Is it because the public is too scared to challenges the scholars? the Munis? the Acharayas? Why do we listen to the “Good ways of living by them?”, other religions like Islam, Christianity etc. also have the same values and sayings, after all, all provide peace of mind in the end. This is not about naming one religion or two rather its about the entire Indian Belief.

By this, anyone can agree on to the fact that there is a necessity of a “Religious Book” for every religion to stay alive for decades to come. The core values, should have a record somewhere and if it wasn’t done in these many years, now is not late to save their existence. I don’t see my yet to come 5th generation following my religion, considering the rapid changing environment of today or maybe yet to come 4th, even. A platform should be built where this serious topic/issue should be debated for hours and long hours until a solution is drawn. “Preachings are good but seriously not good enough, until there is a record of the same”
