Moving Outside the Box: Rethinking Our Approach to Running a Niche Online Business

When we have a successful business, we must learn to think outside the box to ensure that we are operating differently from others. Running an e-commerce store where you are selling products can easily fall into a number of basic practices, and this means that those who start out with an entrepreneurial attitude can soon find themselves coasting. We have to rethink and revamp our approach to running an online business, so what can we do to be different?

Offer a Unique Product

Of course, it’s obvious when we think about it, but unique products can come with their own levels of risk. For example, if you are selling products like CBD or adult content, there is the risk that you are not going to get a consistent volume of customers, but there can also be concerns regarding the website and even the payments. When it comes to processing payments, you can always opt for a high risk payment processor that understands the type of services you are offering, which can give you peace of mind through extra protection. Offering a unique product can seem risky on the outside; however, it is also good business sense because you are offering something very unique, and while it may raise a few eyebrows, if you are profiting, ultimately that is what matters.

Stand Out in Your Customer Service

The concept of delivering amazing customer service is something that might seem difficult to excel in, but if you are offering a unique product that is different from the norm, you need to differentiate yourself from your immediate competitors by addressing things like shopping cart abandonment, providing instant assistance, and responding promptly to inquiries. If you are in a business where you are selling adult-oriented products, there is a benefit to be had for being transparent. You could be selling seemingly odd or even “seedy” products to “seedy” people; however, you are still in the business of delivering a service, and if you provide excellent customer service, you are going to enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Different Distribution Channels

A very simple answer but hard to pull off. Expanding your distribution channels ensures you reach a wider audience, and this means you provide more accessibility for customers who wish to purchase your products or services. When you are offering a product that is somewhat left-field, the customer can feel they have to be more secretive in their purchasing practices, but if you are offering different ways to make it accessible for them, they will feel far more accepted within the services and the business you offer. Of course, you need to utilise social media and a website, but you can also benefit through different marketing channels as well, such as YouTube, as long as the content meets their guidelines.

It is vital that we think differently in order to run an effective online business, and this means that if we are trying to deliver a product that is far from the mainstream, we will naturally start to operate in a different mindset. But this is how we should always be. When running an online business, we should always think outside the box.

Drupal : An Alternative To WordPress As A Blogging Platform

Among all CMSs, Drupal is often considered one of the highest-performing options. This open-source blogging software can support high-traffic websites with many pages. It has built-in performance features, like cache management and bandwidth optimization. These functions can boost your website speed and reduce bounce rates.

Drupal is also extensible. Its vast library of modules and themes offers complete control over your blog’s customization. That said, Drupal typically requires some technical expertise to maximize its features. To set up a Drupal blog, get a custom domain and a Drupal hosting service with a one-click installer. Once installed, you can change the website’s appearance, create your first article, or set up taxonomies to categorize your content.

The football club Arsenal uses Drupal to run its website, which includes a regularly-updated news section.

Key Features

  • Advanced taxonomy system. Create a custom classification to categorize your blog posts and pages. This feature is most useful for large-scale blogs and news publications.
  • Core contact form module. You can set up the user email to receive the messages and enable automatic replies.
  • Advanced user management. Define specific roles for different users, what actions they can perform, and what content they can access. If you have multiple contributors, this feature ensures smooth content collaboration.
  • Tight protection. Drupal security follows strict coding standards and a rigorous community review process to prevent cyber threats.
  • Over 40,000 modules. Yoast is available as a Drupal module to optimize the website for search engines. There are also other options to integrate social media, sell online, notify you of new comments, and more.

Cons

  • Steep learning curve. Like Joomla, Drupal is ideal for those with web development experience. Its advanced taxonomy system can be challenging to master.

Pricing

Drupal is a free blog platform, though you will need a hosting service and domain to use it.

Since it is more suitable for a blog with multiple users and a sizeable content library, consider getting Hostinger’s Business plan. At Rs.269/month, it comes with a free domain, 200 GB NVMe storage, unlimited bandwidth, and free CDN to optimize your website performance.

Top-earning Indian YouTubers

Ever wonder what the top Youtubers earn? So I barely follow any Indian YT content creators but I as curious as to what the top guys can make. I am guessing that the payment is going to be really good considering that the amount is gonna be better in Indian Rupees or even if not the ads will pay well. So I took a look and here is what I found:

The top-earning YouTubers in India are:

  1. Carry Minati: Rs. 46.5 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  2. Amit Bhadana: Rs. 10.5 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  3. BB ki Vines: Rs. 9.8 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  4. Ashish Chanchlani Vines: Rs. 9.4 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  5. Gaurav Chaudhary (Technical Guruji): Rs. 8.9 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  6. Sandeep Maheshwari: Rs. 6.5 lakhs per 1lakh views
  7. Harsh Beniwal: Rs. 5.8 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  8. Nisha Madhulika: Rs. 4.9 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  9. Siddharth Nigam: Rs. 4.6 lakhs per 1 lakh views
  10. Amit Agarwal (Labnol): Rs. 4.5 lakhs per 1 lakh views

I don’t subscibe to any of them. Infact, I don’t know any of them, what they look like or what kind of channel/content they have – other than Technical Guruji. And to be honest I am not interested either. Most of the content isn’t what I would want and if it is something I am into, then the content is done in Hindi. English and Malayalam mostly for me.

Some Interesting & Fun Facts About Whatsapp

1.  WhatsApp Did Not Spend a Penny on Marketing and User Acquisition

Whatsapp founder Jan Koun and Brian Acton strongly disregard advertisements and which is why they neither did invest in the ad since the beginning of the app. Likewise they don’t have a marketing staff. They worked on a straightforward strategy to provide a simplified messaging solution to users while getting new users with time. The WhatsApp company thus invested more in the development side to provide their users with the most like messaging platform.

2.  WhatsApp—The Most Banned App

Did you know that despite all of its popularity, it is one of the most downloaded apps, WhatsApp is banned in 12 countries around the globe? Yes, and this makes WhatsApp the most banned app in the world. Along with WhatsApp, Facebook and twitter are not available in seven countries. YouTube is also not accessible for users of six countries in the world. These banns have different governmental concerns of the respective countries. UAE, China, North Korea, Syria, Bangladesh, Iran, and a few other countries do not allow WhatsApp in their countries.

3.  WhatsApp Users Opens The App Around 23 Times a Day

WhatsApp revealed its official figures that, on average WhatsApp users open the app 23 times or more per day. This implies that WhatsApp users open the app roughly once every hour. This must be a breakthrough for any mobile app development company.

4.  More than 29 Million Messages are Sent Every Minute a Whatsapp

2018 was a productive year for WhatsApp and data shows that around 29 million messages are shared every minute by the users. This massive figure does not include images, videos, and audio recordings and complies only on text messages.

5.  Google Offered to Purchase Whatsapp for $10 Billion

WhatsApp founders knew its worth, and that made them reject Google’s acquisition offer for 10 million US dollars in 2014. Later,
Facebook acquire the company for almost double than the Google offer.

6.  Facebook Acquired Whatsapp for $19 Billion

On February 19, 2014, the popular social networking website “Facebook”
finally acquired WhatsApp. That day WhatsApp became the biggest purchase of the Facebook company by spending an amount of $19 billion.

6 Facts About WordPress

1. WordPress is used by 35% of websites on the internet.

It’s hard to believe, but WordPress.com and Netcraft estimate that 35% of the web is powered by this previously obscure content management system. WordPress’ popularity is due to its exceptional adaptability, which enables it to be used in a wide range of settings, from tiny personal blogs to large corporations like Sony Music and Forbes.com. With an estimated 1.3 billion active websites, this means that around 455 million websites use WordPress today.

2. For every month, there are an average of 700,000 fresh posts and 77 million fresh comments.

Over 2,333,333 new posts are made every day, 97,222 posts are made every hour, and 1,620 new posts are made every minute. With an average post length of 300 words, WordPress is generating about 500,000 words each minute. (source)

3. Every month, WordPress receives 487 billion spam messages.

The number of spam comments has increased dramatically during the previous few years. There were 6,208 times more spam comments created in a month than there were real ones, according to Akismet figures. A total of 487 billion spammers hit WordPress every day.

4. Every six months, WordPress registers more than 1.1 million new domain names.

WordPress is now powering an extra 1.1 million websites every six months, according to a worldwide internet CMS usage survey conducted in 2015. Users like the ease with which they may create an online presence. That number may be much over one million now, given the growth of WordPress’s market share since then.

5. 2,940,000 people search for WordPress per month.

WordPress is searched 2,940,000 times a month by individuals throughout the world using KWFinder, a reputable keyword-analysis tool that provides accurate data. Even if we included all relevant long-tail terms, the total search traffic would almost certainly increase dramatically.

6. WordPress dominates Google’s search engine results page with 2.28 billion results.

There are more than 2.2 billion results for “WordPress” on Google. For instance, a search for “sex” returns 5.11 billion results, which isn’t all that much more.

Mr. Ballen

One of the things that I truly enjoy is listening to Mr.Ballen. John B Allen or MrBallen as he is known online is an internet personality  and a former United States Navy SEAL. Allen’s work is distributed through various platforms and media channels, including YouTube, Facebook reels, Amazon Music, and TikTok, among others. After being medically discharged back in 2017, he looked for other ventures to spend his time on. He is so popular that he has his own Funko Pop!

Starting off with Tiktok and then Youtube, he started uploading him filming true crime and mysteries in a narrative form. He focuses on the strange, dark and mysterious and we are addicted to it. A natural storyteller who got the nickname Shakespeare back in SEAL training, John started telling stories online just to get a break from his work fundraising for the veterans nonprofit he founded after leaving the service. On February 29th, 2020 John uploaded a one-minute video to TikTok. By the time John picked up his phone again that evening–he was shocked to find that the story he had posted that morning about the unexplained deaths of 9 hikers in the Dyatlov pass in Russia back in 1959–had gone viral. In just 4 hours, his TikTok account had blown up with more than 5 million views.

No his main Youtube channe has 7.4 million subscribers and it’s still growing. His other channels are also equally popular. He releases a video on it once a week and I wait with baited breath for Sunday evening (in India) when the new videos usually get released on YT.

Love Entertainment? Here’s How To Stream From Anywhere

With the right setup and services, you can stream from anywhere. This is essential when you are on a business trip, away on vacation, or need to find something to entertain the children.

Use Reliable Streaming Services

First, you should know that not every streaming service is the same. Streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Disney+, and many others are available. Sign up for a subscription to the one that best fits your needs. Be aware, though, that some regions have restrictions on what you can contain. This is something Netflix and Amazon are known for. To get the most out of your subscription, read this article on how to change region in Amazon Prime Video.

Make Sure You Upgrade to Compatible Devices

Technology changes quickly. Apps also need better hardware as they get more complicated. This includes your phone, your PC, and your laptop. If you have had any of these for a long time, the performance may start to get worse. Or do anything at all. You can stream movies that are no more than three years old on a laptop, desktop computer, tablet, or phone. This will help you use an app to its fullest. Some plans let you upgrade your device every now and then.

Stream from Anywhere with Mobile Data

Public Wi-Fi can be very dangerous, so you shouldn’t use it if you can avoid it. In some cases, you might not even be able to get on the internet. But you can stream your favorite shows and movies using your mobile data. You can, of course, do this right from your phone if you turn on mobile data. But you can also connect your phone to a PC or other device via USB or Bluetooth to get mobile data on that device. Just keep an eye on your costs and how much data you use.

Find a Good Internet Connection

If you want to stream any kind of video, you need a good enough internet connection. If you don’t have good internet, your playback will be bad, with buffering, stream loss, and low-resolution video. For a smooth and uninterrupted streaming experience, you should have an internet connection with a stable speed of at least 5 Mbps for standard definition (SD) content and 25 Mbps or higher for high definition (HD) or ultra-high definition (UHD) content. 

Use a VPN if Necessary

Remember that you may need to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) if the streaming service is not available in your area. With a VPN, you can get around restrictions based on where you are and access content from anywhere in the world. Also, if you have to use a public connection, it will give you a little more security. But you should also know that some service providers might penalize you if you use a VPN, or the quality of the video might be lower than usual.

Summary

You might be pleased to know that you can stream from anywhere these days. However, the service depends on the app. You can use mobile data for access and a VPN for region control.

Ever Faced A Technical Problem With Your Website? How Did You Resolve It?

I’ve been maintaining this website/blog since 2007 and I’ve only had a problem once. All this time and just one issue that was caused by WordPress. A few days ago, I think it was last Wednesday, I woke up and found that several of my posts were missing and each month was only showing 2-3 blog posts and mostly the Images that I post from time to time, without much words in it. All the categories were removed and it showed by default that all posts were in the Uncategorised list but even that count was not showing up.

Not only that I couldn’t log in to my account. It refused to accept my user id and email id and password. I also couldn’t reset my password since it refused to accept my user id and email id that is associated with the account. I was devastated for a while but then contacted my Website server’s support team and the first guy wasn’t very helpful but the second time I tried, the guy was able to identify that it was a WordPress related issue. So he used the most recent backup to fix the issue – I only lost a week’s worth of blog posts – and I could finally log in.

I then changed my password and then checked my blog. Over the next couple of days I rewrote the posts that I had lost, just to ensure that the dates would match up. I didn’t like having these huge gaps in between posts. Then a couple of days later I upgraded WordPress to the latest version, which had just been released earlier this month. Things seem to be fine now.

The Dos of Online Education


Set Up a Quiet Space

To ensure you participate fully as an online student, it’s best to create a space that is free of distractions and remains uninterrupted for the entire duration of your session if possible. In addition, having a clear background or using a virtual one can help you control your environment.

Take off your wall poster or cover it, and make sure your dirty laundry is not visible in the video. Lock your door for privacy, or you might end up in a similar position to this guy. Let your family members and roommates know about the class timings and ask them to avoid knocking on the door during the class.

Be punctual, log in on time

As a student enrolled in online classes, attendance still matters. You’ll want to log into whatever online platform your professor is using. Make sure your computer is charged and be ready to appear on screen in a timely fashion. Being late is not acceptable, especially as your commute is (probably) from your bedroom to the couch in your living room!

Adopt Better Online Communication Habits

You should look at your email regularly – at least once a day. If you are discussing an assignment with a professor or working on a group project, see to it that you are available on a platform accessed by everyone (e.g., Slack, Discord, etc.)

Get a Reliable Internet Connection

This is perhaps the most straightforward tip, but surprisingly, most people ignore it. Your computer and internet access are your most valuable assets in an online setting, similar to how you need pens and papers in a physical space. Therefore, get a dependable internet connection with a high speed. Besides, make sure to get this done before your online classes start, or you might have to face costly interruptions during your session.

Test your tech

Glitches in your technology mean you could miss some vital part of your professor’s lecture. Make sure the camera is stable and that your audio or microphone works. Use headphones to make sure you can hear everyone. Plug in your computer and make sure it’s charged ahead of time.

Take Study Breaks

Regular study breaks can be the key to a student’s success. When you attend school or college, breaks are already planned, but you might have to create your own breaks when studying online. For starters, set smaller breaks and plan how you will utilize them. MIT, one of the top universities in the world, recommends taking a 10-minute study break after every 50 minutes. Afterward, you can create more significant breaks of 30 minutes after every two hours. These serve as an excellent goal post and help you feel energized and refreshed in every study session.

Tweetdeck: The Best Way To Keep Updated On Twitter

Even though I don’t use Twitter that often, when I do I tend to use Tweetdeck for sending out those Tweets and pics. TweetDeck is a social media dashboard application for management of Twitter accounts. Originally an independent app, TweetDeck was subsequently acquired by Twitter Inc. and integrated into Twitter’s interface. It has long ranked as one of the most popular Twitter clients by percentage of tweets posted, alongside the official Twitter web client and the official apps for iPhone and Android.

Like other Twitter applications, it interfaces with the Twitter API to allow users to send and receive tweets and view profiles. What I really like about is the columns that you customize and layout as you want. That is something I so wanted on the actual Twitter. I usually have my Timeline first, Notifications, My Tweets, Direct Messages and then whatever user I am following or Hashtag that I want to check out in other columns at the other end, usually 2 or 3 at a time. That makes it easy to see and reply to all the interesting things that I want.

However as I mentioned I do not use it that much, in fact I usually spend the most time on it on the weekends whenever there is an Arsenal FC game on. And other days I usually just check updates on my phone app for Twitter. So I am a lite user but I do like Tweetdeck a lot. They used to have a Desktop app which worked fine but then stopped supporting that. You can go straight tweetdeck.twitter.com website or use the Chrome or Mac app.

My First Choice When It Comes To Buying Meat

My go to online delivery system for fresh meat – be it chicken or fish and the odd occasional mutton (lamb) is from Fresh To Home. These guys are the best at their customer service and I like their variety of options available on their website/services.

We eat a lot of fish in a week. I love my sardines, mackrel, bassa, tuna and seer fish – these are the most common ones we eat at home. Sometimes we get anchovies, which I love, barracuda, maybe even some squid or shrimp (though not on the barbie). Kerala is a fish place. But ofcourse, as I have mentioned it earlier on my blog – pearl spot reigns supreme as the king of all fish. I love me some pearl spot, though it isn’t the cheapest to get. Fry that up or even cook them in a banana leaf with a whole lot of spices and chilli powder and it will make your mouth water as the food is being cooked.

Ofcourse we eat a lot of chicken. The go to is to buy a kg of chicken, cut for us and delivered, and make a curry that lasts us for a couple of meals at least. Sometimes a 3rd if we are being miserly. Or we can get the whole leg – thigh and leg – either marinated in a tandoori masala or just as it is. I like those as well. Fry them up and eat them with chapati or porota or even with some rice. Amazing and delicious.

Now like I mentioned, we do get mutton or squid or prawns once in a while and I do enjoy the change of meat when that happens. But yeah the usual fish and chicken is always so good. So if I were to buy some I would first check on freshtohome and if they don’t have it, is when I look for something else.

Some Tips For Getting The Best Black Friday Deals


Black Friday, the Friday after Thanksgiving, is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and an ideal time to get the best deals on items on your list, whether you’re buying online or in stores.

  • Use ads to plan your shopping day so you have a better chance of getting your most-wanted items.
  • Many retailers start running Black Friday deals at the end of October, so you can start shopping early.
  • Consider subscribing to retailers’ emails to get notified of savings opportunities immediately.
  • Check return and price-match policies in advance to help you decide where to shop.

If you do venture to the stores on Black Friday, keep it simple and safe. Bodge says, “I suggest focusing on a couple key retailers where you can get a lot of your shopping done. Fewer retailers equals fewer lines to tolerate. Curbside pickup is also an option. You still might wait in line, but at least you’ll be in your car.” And remember some stores might be practicing social distancing, so be mindful of posted signs and marked distances in lines.

Some major retailers, like Walmart and Target provide store maps identifying where to find specific Black Friday deals inside the store, available on their websites and/or apps. Use these maps to plan your exact shopping route before the big day arrives. You’ll save time in-store, leaving you with more deal-hunting time elsewhere.

Be sure to follow your favorite retailers on their social channels. Many stores reward Twitter, Facebook and Instagram followers with additional discounts. You’ll also be the first to know about last-minute flash sales, as well as special followers-only offers and discount codes.

A Detailed Guide to Live Porn Cams

Have you ever participated in a live porn webcam show? Cam sites have increased in popularity owing to the interaction between models and viewers. No other form of pornography allows individuals to interact with the performers they see on the screen either in a public or private chatroom. There is an abundance of cam sites online, imposing different content requirements and rules to everyone using the platform.

The guide below will introduce you to live porn cams.

What are cam sites?
Webcam websites feature cam models streaming various types of sexual content in order to attract the attention of viewers. For instance, some performers masturbate in front of the camera, while others focus on dirty talk. Some models take part in foreplay or sexual intercourse, hosting public or private steams. Make sure you go here to check out some hot foreplay ideas.

Furthermore, certain performers only show their intimate body parts to viewers, whereas others engage in sexual activities with other webcam models. The content streamed by performers is determined by their preferences, as well as the restrictions imposed by the live porn site.

The majority of such websites provide viewers with a chat feature, allowing them to communicate with the models by texting them. Users give suggestions to performers in their texts, requesting them to perform certain actions during the show. The models are those who decide whether to fulfill their requirements or simply ignore them.

How do these sites work?
The purpose of cam websites is for performers to establish a relationship with their fans. Naturally, webcam models engage in such shows to earn finances. The largest number of sites enable performers to host their own chatrooms free of charge. Nevertheless, hosting a free chatroom isn’t exactly profitable for webcam models, as they get paid only by getting tips.

By using a tipping system, live porn cam sites provide payment to performers based on their tips from viewers. The longer viewers enjoy these sessions, the higher the likelihood for models to earn tips in the form of tokens and credits. These virtual payments are later converted into money and given to performers. Visit this link, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Token_coin, to learn about the types and uses of token coins.

The most lucrative opportunity for performers is participating in private shows, referring to the sessions where viewers and models leave public streaming to engage in a private session. In the course of these shows, the model adheres to the instructions of the viewer while getting paid for each minute of the performance. Nevertheless, the webcam model doesn’t take all the money to herself/himself but shares it with the live porn site.

Additionally, some websites offer two-way private sessions where users show themselves on camera as well. Also, webcam models host group private shows with a limited number of viewers. Unlike free chatrooms, these sessions aren’t open for everyone to join.

Furthermore, performers differ in their earnings. Their payments depend on the number of fans, their popularity, and the reputation of the website.

Are these sites legal?
Live porn sites are legal for performers and users over the age of eighteen. There are numerous opportunities for viewers to watch porn free of charge by enjoying 24/7 live porn shows. Anyhow, most of these platforms restrict explicit content that goes against their regulations. These websites impose chatroom etiquette in order for users not to harass the performers.

In addition, chatroom participants are required to adhere to the etiquette by respecting the rules related to using inappropriate language. The minute a viewer exhibits unacceptable behavior, performers are allowed to ban the user from the chatroom. Sometimes, the role of blocking participants is trusted in the hands of chatroom moderators.

The purpose of chatroom etiquette is for webcam girls to be treated with respect instead of being downgraded by participants. Also, it’s paramount for the personal life of these workers to remain private, not exposed to the public. Even though they have an online workplace, it doesn’t mean their lives should be shared with the public.

Final thoughts
When looking for a new form of sexual excitement, join a live porn chatroom. It’s one of a kind, arousing experience!

Instagram Models

What do you use Instagram for? Sharing your selfies, pics of your loved ones, maybe your latest toys and clothes purchased recently? I use it for the same. Mainly some selfies, pics of food since I am a foodie, drinks, maybe my latest purchase of dvds or something else. I even might share images of a movie poster that I love or a musician/band who I follow. Maybe a funny image or two. That’s it.

What I find so funny is the horde of Instagram model wannabes. Mostly young women. Buying clothes so they can pose in many pics. Make up done even when sitting at home. Lighting setup. Mood lights setup. Getting friends with cameras to shoot a bunch of pics. A lot of girls I know from work have started their accounts and started putting on their makeup professionally just for this. Ofcourse with a filter added to some of the photos. They even go to some hotels, cafes and resorts so they can pose for pics in beautiful locations – against a tree line or a lake or river or a lawn etc etc.

And ofcourse the quotes. You cannot forget the quote. A pseudo-spiritual quote? Seemingly meaningful quote about a women (presumably them) – that’s one small pose for a woman but a giant roll of pics for all womankind. Oh the quotes. Giving off such complicated thoughts and musings! Yuck, yuck!

Is Social Media Making Us More Narcissistic?

I dunno about Social Media in general but Instagram certainly is. As well TikTok and shit like that. There are so many Instagram models that it is beginning to start becoming old.

Now, don’t get me wrong there actually are some Instagram models. Like they are models in real life or are in show business and they also do some photo shoots for their Instagram account or just upload pics to Instagram. Properly done pics with a crew and makeup team and clothes – or lack thereof. However that is not what I am referring to.

What I mean is the 1000s and 1000s of gals who are “inspired” to follow in the trend and buy/borrow clothes, make up and get some “photographer” to take several photos of them in so many poses – looking into the distance, smiling demurely, starring at the camera so hard as to gaze into your soul! LOL. So many such women desperate for the likes and to grow a following for making them an Insta-celeb. Oh and the very best thing – is they hunt down these quotes about women in Google and paste them in the captions.

Quotes like “She sees in black and white, thinks in greys but loves in color”. I wish I were making it up but I am not.
