    The linchpin to a successful interactive, drag-and-drop, visual product configurator is its rules-based attachment point feature. In a nutshell, attachment points are acceptable locations where two products can connect or join together. Think of it as snapping together two LEGO pieces – peg must fit into hole. So, as you can imagine, when it comes to attaching two or more products together, accuracy and precision are paramount to the final … Continue reading »

Some people just get addicted to gambling and go to the extend of risking all of their money or even assets for the thrill of winning. The discount thrill While purchasing most people are happy or feel special if they get a discount on the sales price. However there are also people who want more than the normal discount. They will go into a discussion in order to get their high discount. They will only make a purchase if they get a high discount, higher than the first proposed…

Paying for subscription happens also online. Verification Some people just want to talk to one of the managers of the web service just to verify if the company really exists and is legit. This is easy but even this short phone call is a waste of time for us. Wondering why replying emails is not sufficient.

It’s actually a fascinating little device that has dramatic implications for creating “smart homes” and “smart…

    Luke Kennedy, founder of Kudu, recently shared his recommendations with the MicroConf community for making a mastermind group work.

This could be a meeting, a phone call, sending a proposal, even just waiting for a couple of months. The important thing was agreeing what the actual next step was…

    Often, at the beginning of a new year, salespeople make the declaration that they want to “go to more conferences and networking events.” This is the equivalent of saying that your New Year’s resolution is to “go to the gym three times a week.” While it’s a nice goal, they’ll both likely be long forgotten by February. Most people want to go to more conferences and networking events because they’re a great place to meet new prospects and further develop relationships with existing prospects (they’re also a great place to learn, but let’s…

    What does it mean to be a savvy consumer? A savvy consumer is someone who puts more weight in their friends’ opinions and independent product reviews. Before we buy a new gadget or try a new restaurant, most of us look at the reviews on Yelp, Facebook and Google+ to make sure we’re not wasting our money on something that is useless. Unfortunately, not all reviews are reliable. Some are useless and anger some, while others are so glowing that they are too good to be true. The best reviews are the ones that walk in between. Regardless of the consumer experience, they offer up the type of…
  • Is The Chair Your Worst Enemy?

    Alex Noudelman
    7 Dec 2014 | 6:20 am
    The evidence is in — your chair is your worst enemy. Many office employees sit in a chair for more than 12 hours each day. They get up in the morning, drive to work, sit all day long at their desks, drive home, eat dinner, watch TV and surf the Internet before going to sleep in their comfortable beds. This degree of excess sitting is not what our bodies need. Studies in agricultural communities, where people move naturally, argue that our bodies are made to move all day and only use a chair for a well-deserved rest. People were never designed to be crammed into chairs: sitting all day long…
