  1. Images capture our attention immediately while a good video can keep us glued to our seats for th entire duration of the clip. A killer combination is when both images and video are used to deliver a killer ad which will definitely lead to conversions. For those on a tight budget images is the first port of call or favorite medium but those with deeper pockets usually go for videos.
  2. Quora would have been a great platform for you to sell yourself unfortunately they tend to remove contents with back-links and click baits. You could also check out Medium but your writing skills has to be very engaging to captivate the audience,but it can open doors for you if you are good enough. Become a useful and contributing member of Reddit to capture a followership.
  3. If you can get traffic and conversions through a web-page that went viral and climbed up in the SEO ranking it can be wonderful as readers are usually from a particular niche and can be targeted. Social media marketing can also be targeted and has the advantage that you can pay for ads and set the targeting parameters by yourself to get as much conversions as possible. It is a question of finding out which method works best for you all things considered.
  4. As with most things there has been a shift over the past couple of years from traditional advertising media to online advertising. Targeted advertising and the surge in the use of mobile device has brought advertising down to all parts of the globe. In terms of coverage online advertising beats the traditional media and it is so much cheaper
  5. It used to be the default browser back in the day but with the emergence of so many faster and more entertaining browsers it has become forgotten like an old religion. As change is the only constant thing, people have moved on and embraced newer and better things. It hasn't been missed and lots of younger people don't even know about it except when their devices bring it up as an option. Firefox, Chrome etc will suffice for now.
  6. Making a website profitable is definitely not a walk in the park;it requires determination and a knowledge of the necessary skills to bring in the much needed traffic. Lots of folks sell dead ponies to unsuspecting people on the Internet, so I suggest you do a thorough research before parting with your hard earned dollars. If you follow your passion and build up a website in the end it will become worth all the trouble.
  7. It depends on who you ask. Social media has been used by the masses to pull down dictators,change the status quo. It has lifted lots of people from poverty. It helps people keep in touch with family,friends and relatives at the lowest possible cost. Trolls and cyber bullies have destroyed so many lives via social media. Minors are easily corrupted by communication in social media.
  8. I would take Playstation any day over any other console because of the vast collection of bestselling titles and secondly Playstation has the most ergonomic controller pads. The only limitation a Playstation owner can have is not having enough funds to buy the endless number of titles out there, the constant improvement of the console of the years has added to the dedicated fan base and follower-ship over the years.
  9. Reddit excels in areas like linking you up to forums of people with similar interests who share knowledge and experiences daily. Reddit tends to frown at online marketing as the forum administrators censor and delete messages that doesn't revolve around the issues being discussed by the forum. Facebook excels in online marketing as they promote paid advertising which incidentally is cheaper than what most platforms offer.
  10. It's a question of which weapon suits which battlefield. Nothing beats the desktop in terms of power and processing speed and the big screen monitors which are better for the eyes,but in terms of portability and freedom the laptop reigns supreme. At the end of the day it boils down to what the user needs the PC for and the environment he will work in.
  11. Humans don't like to stress their brains more than they ought to, so we tend to prefer shorter names or names that are easy to remember. You may pick a four letter word that is hard to remember whereas another domain name is much longer but easier to recollect. I believe a balancing act should be applied especially as lots of people have chosen the available shorter domain names, one has to be creative in order to survive in our very competitive world.
  12. Nothing beats Facebook in terms of targeting and traffic generation,ads is the mainstay of the company which generates billions of dollars yearly from advertising. Once you create a fan page or group and display enticing content,you will definitely generate traffic from targeted advertising,incidentally Facebook ads gives its users more bang for the buck when compared to other advertising platforms.
  13. There is no written down rule, but if you can get hundreds of visitors to your website it is good but if you can get thousands it would still be better. Traffic and leads are the new currency in e-marketing so the more the merrier. You can participate actively in social media,blogs and forums to draw traffic from there to your website thus increasing your digital worth.
  14. You maybe be right there,for first time users Twitter may seem more challenging to use. Both have the potential to reach lots of potential clients especially if you follow their ads instructions religiously. Advertising has gradually shifted from the old media format into social media,so we all have to learn in other to reap the benefits it offers. The reach one can get through social media marketing is unbelievable and can be very profitable for businesses.
  15. Thanks for the rich discussion and information on software which can effectively take out malware. A certain Indian product "Quick heal Pro" is a very efficient anti virus and also a malware killer,you may want to try it out too. So unfortunate that people take out their time to create such diabolic things,we live in a crazy world though.
