Passion of the CEO

I’ve noticed in a lot of small companies for which I give consulting the following trend – the CEO of the company is very engaged, passionate, hard working. The person has lots of ideas. On another hand, the employees have much less energy and passion. A big problem is the lack of accountability. The CEO is accountable for everything, while each individual employee for just a small number of things. For this reason, a company needs the CEO a lot. That person is the blood within the body.

Exact Match Domains in SEO – does it still pay to use them?

What are EMD (Exact Match Domains)?

“An EMD is a domain name that precisely matches a search query that will likely drive traffic to your website. For instance, if you call your website BuyCheapJeansOnline.com.
The search query ‘buy cheap jeans’ is a lucrative search term, and if you call your website this then you might assume this is a short cut to the top of a search engine results page (SERP).

How to make films with a smartphone camera? Some tips

Some tips on filming with a smartphone camera:

  • The light matters a lot, try to have the subject placed in a good light. You will get only poor results with a low light environment.
  • It’s important not to view very well on the camera, but to have a steady hand. For this purpose, it might be best to keep the camera at neck level. If you keep the hands mid-air, you will likely be tired easily and your hand will shake.
  • I would advise not using zoom, unless you have a tripod.
  • The best quality images are the ones which use sunlight.
  • If you are filming at a concert, you might annoy other people not with your hand in the air, as much as using the viewscreen. Try to turn it off.
