What is Unthink?

I first stumbled upon this only on Wednesday and other than one mention on my twitter feed, I haven’t heard anything else about ‘Unthink’.  So I was intrigued and decided to do a little bit of digging to see what the story was Continue reading

Struggling with E-commerce? – Help Is On The Way

The Problem

For many, the world of e-commerce is not something that they embrace, it is just a growing necessity for most businesses.  It is not something that is taught properly within industry but instead you rely on the ‘web guys’ to do it for you, and the chances are those guys have taught themselves.  I know I taught myself all I know about E-commerce by reading about the subjects, experimenting with what works and what doesn’t aswell as tracking these changes.  For many though, there is not enough time to learn these new skills or they simply don’t know where to turn, this has always been an issue.  For the smaller businesses who do not have the time to do it themselves or the money to hire a professional full-time, they are stuck in limbo with no way to break into the untapped e-commerce market.  If this sounds like you, or your current situation, help is on the way.

The Solution

The solution is coming, for anyone who is having problems with their e-commerce setup, trying to take the next step forward or who feel they are standing still and want to break through to the next level.  Whatever your level, be it beginner or advanced, if you are looking for some expert advice then you do not have to wait much longer.  Something which has never been available to the public before on this scale is almost ready for public release.  Right now I can’t explain in anymore detail what this is but watch this space.  Hopefully it will be ready before the end of August and I can share with you all what the solution truly is.  I will keep you up to date as soon as there are any updates and as soon as it is ready.  Exciting times ahead.

Bye for now

Happy Birthday WWW

Just a quick post today, as I’m busy thinking of and writing other types of content.  More on this soon.

Today however is the 20th Birthday of the World Wide Web, and for me this is something I feel should not go un-noticed.  The invention of the world-wide web has changed everything over the past twenty years.

Dave’s Days Update – Time Management

This is an interesting topic and one which I am getting more and more familiar with every day.  Partly due to my lack of posts recently (due to Holidays partly) but also due to a lot of other things going on.  The battle is constantly to make sure that the most important things get done first and that you don’t get dragged away by the un-important tasks which can easily take over.

If you too have had issues with this before or no what I’m talking about then Continue reading

What Motivates You?

As I write this it is 08:25 in Florida, I am sat on a balcony overlooking a marina.  When I look to my right over the river I see ‘Millionaires Row’ where an empty plot of land will sell for between $7-10 Million.  The water is strewn with boats and Yachts most of which will of cost more than triple that amount.

To the left is Fort Lauderdale beach which has a car park in the distance which is full of nice cars and countless Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

Good E-book’s and Why You Should Write One

What Are E-books

E-books in my opinion are fantastic little things and I have used plenty over the past few years to get up to speed on topics of which I previously had little or no knowledge.  For those of you who have not heard the term e-book before il give you a brief explanation.  They are not like the electronic books you would put on your ‘Kindle’ or ‘iPad’ etc but instead they are (usually) pages of PDF files compiled together to form an e-book.

You can design your own front cover

A Couple Of My Favourites

These e-books are usually focused on one specific topic in which they can go into great detail.  The purpose of this post came about recently when I read an eBook by Rob Cubbon.  He has a really good blog for any aspiring web designers or for anyone who needs a web designer he’s your man.  His website blog is here http://robcubbon.com/blog/, and for the amazing price of £0.00 you can download his FREE E-book “How to market Yourself Online”  I recommend you download this E-book, link to the page here.  All it will cost you is your email address to get sent the download link, and Rob will even send you tips and tricks for free…don’t worry, not spammy at all.

Another favourite of mine is by Pat Flynn and one of his sites The Smart Passive Income Blog.  Pat is another one of those guys who inspire me, his blog is fantastic and it is addictive, i still havent managed to read everything I have wanted too on his site.  Back to the e-books, the one on his home page is very clever, it is an E-book on how to write, publish and market your own E-book, which made me want to write an E-book even more.  Check out his site it is brilliant.

Why Write an E-book?

Writing an e-book is something I have wanted to do for a while, and it is on my ever-growing list of things to do.  The beauty of an e-book is that they are relatively cheap to make (not counting time) and when written on a subject of your choice they are a fantastic way of showing others that you are an expert in your chosen field.  This can be a crucial part of marketing yourself, once you are seen as an expert the opportunities open up almost straight away.  I can testify to this just by writing this blog I have experienced this and the next progressive step is an e-book.  Hopefully there will be a Dave Furness e-book on here in the future, somehow revolving around the world of e-commerce but I’m still throwing round a few ideas at the minute to try narrow it down. 🙂

Find An E-book

There are E-Books out for nearly everything these days, and I’m sure a Google search will throw up multiple results.  If however you find a niche for what your area of interest, why not get writing and become the ‘expert’ in your field.

Go on get writing…it’s fun 😉
