buying software online

 

 How do you know you can trust that you will be getting real software

There are many different places online where they offer you a discount for buying software, however very often you may not be getting what you think you are getting here are a few things to watch out for when considering buying software online.  

buying software on ebay can be a risky thing, so make sure you understand some of the things you may want to know about a software vendor.

  1. Version what version are you getting is it a full version or is it an educational version, is it an upgrade?
  2. Watch out for tricks that some vendors may try to play on you.
  3. beware of ebay sellers with little or no feedback…
  4. check out a vendors previous auctions and feedback.
  5. Google that vendor to see if there have been complaints in the past.
  6. Avoid vendors that offer to sell you a deep discounted software program, (it might be counterfeit)
  7. Send them an email, if they reply and answer your questions, (all of them) then you will know more about them.

The bottom line is that if you are not careful you could end up spending money on software and getting nothing in return be fully aware of a websites policies concerning selling and how vendors work in that company. Some companies will tell you in the fine print that they do not cover you if a vendor has no feedback or they have less feedback this is not a good thing and if you find a company like that the best thing to do is to avoid them entirely. Take for example, Ebay.com here is an auction for software that is very popular, try out our process, check the vendor out, see what their feedback is, find out if they have complaints, and contact them to see if they reply to your questions about the auction items. 

 

 

 


Analyst for the Small Business


 The trouble with small business is that sometimes its hard to figure out what is going on in life, more so when you find that your time is limited by the number of hours in a day.

Could you think your way out of a problem if you did not know nor had you any experience with the problem?

They used to call this consulting, but in our experience most small business owners do not listen to advice at all. Which is why they really need advice, more so when you have a rough and tumble economy like we have now.

Small business owners may not think they need a business analyst.

One of the most important things you can do for your small business is to create and generate a plan that works time after time. Small businesses are sometimes caught up in trying to survive and overlook a key element in their success.

The business analyst can actually come in and determine what the small business owner can do to expand his or her business. The small business owner can benefit just as much from a business analyst as a large corporation. There may be times when the business analyst sees the big picture when the small business owner can only see the bottom line.

The new small business may not feel the added expense of a business analyst is worth justifying. In fact this is just the case. The small business can benefit from the business analyst in many ways. The business analyst may be able to offer an unforeseen income generating avenue.

Advertising techniques the small business is using may be proving fruitless. The business analyst may be able to implement Bluetooth advertising. The small business could target specific clients instead of a general population with his or her advertising dollar.

The business analyst may be able to suggest point of sale income not thought of by the small business owner. Other elements the business analyst could suggest would be repackaging in different sizes, where appropriate. Offering complimenting sales items may have not occurred to the small business owner.

The business analyst is there to show a different perspective. The business analyst will be able to assess the small business and determine what business decisions should be made. He or she can instruct the small business owner of new programs available. The business analyst will be able to offer advice as to new technology the small business owner is not taking advantage of.

The small business is able to be aided in several ways by the business analyst. The business analyst is a visionary. He or she can show the small business how to implement innovative business techniques. These techniques may have never been before thought of by the small business owner.

The business analyst can view the broad scope of things to determine a need by the customer. The small business owner may have no idea these areas of opportunity exist. It is up to the business analyst to show the small business what will work and what will not work for the business. Building profits and customer relations are the two key components that make up what the small business is focused upon.

A good business analyst will be able to integrate these key elements into a plan of action for the small business. The business analyst can act as the liaison between the small business and the customer to determine if the needs of the customer are being met. A report can then be generated to determine how the small business can use this information.

The small business and it’s customers can benefit from the knowledge a business analyst brings to the table. The added expense of a business analyst can significantly raise the profits of a small business. It is worth researching whether a business analyst will be able to use his or her skills when it comes to a small business.
