My wish: To launch a new era of openness in business

My wish: To launch a new era of openness in business | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Anonymous companies protect corrupt individuals – from notorious drug cartel leaders to nefarious arms dealers – behind a shroud of mystery that makes it almost impossible to find and hold them responsible. But anti-corruption activist Charmian Gooch hopes to change all that. At TED2014, she shares her brave TED Prize wish: to know who owns and controls companies, to change the law, and to launch a new era of openness in business.

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes

How to Setup a Wordpress Blog in 5 Minutes | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

I started my blog using WordPress and I have found it a platform that makes it easy to own and publish your own content online.

 

It is the foundation to the success of this blog which currently receives over 300,000 hits per month.

 

If you’re looking for an easy way to create a web presence and start sharing your ideas online, the best way to do this is to create a blog. Millions of users around the world already express themselves and share their thoughts by means of their personal blogs.

 

The advantage of having your own WordPress blog that is self-hosted is that you own it.

 

It is good to have a Facebook “page” or a Tumblr blog but they are owned by someone else and you can have a web presence there but under their “Terms and Conditions” It is basically a rental.

Both org and .com variants of Wordpress are a delight to use, I have sued them for years, had to abandon my hosted Wordpress blog when I upgraded my website.  I miss it.

Beyond Your Borders: Promoting Your Business Internationally Using Social Media

Beyond Your Borders: Promoting Your Business Internationally Using Social Media | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The aptly named world wide web has opened up new methods of marketing for businesses both great and small. The benefits of localizing company websites to target foreign markets are now widely recognized (Common Sense Advisory studies suggest an average return of US$25 for every $1 spent on localization) and many businesses now use social media platforms for domestic marketing, but very few appear to be using those platforms to promote their services abroad.

 

For example, Econsultancy’s 2010 Social Media and Online PR Report reported that 83% of marketers were planning to increase their spending on social media this year, yet only 26% had plans to run campaigns in more than one country.

I love that point Martin! I think people call it social because of the personal element to it as opposed to advertising and things like that, especially because it's so interactive in nature. Do you have a suggestion as to what to change the name to?

Very good indeed!
