A business website requires a great home page if it is to deliver a substantial return on the considerable investment of time, energy and capital expended in getting it up and running. Most homepages unfortunately fail to make the required impact with site visitors, and often drive potential customers away, instead of converting them to paying customers. The tips in this article are excellent and provide a blueprint for someone building a new site, or a great benchmark to measure an existing site against, to determine areas for improvement.

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss)

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss) | Job Search | Scoop.it

The most important driver of employee engagement is the relationship they have with their immediate manager,” says Piera Palazzolo, Senior Vice President of Dale Carnegie Training. She says the most successful relationships are those where bosses and employees really get to know one another.

“That’s different from years ago, when you weren’t supposed to ask any personal questions. Those lines are blurred now, people want you to care about them, particularly if there’s something going on in their lives that might affect their performance.”

35 Cool Social Media Facts You Should Not Ignore #socialmediamarketing

35 Cool Social Media Facts You Should Not Ignore #socialmediamarketing | Job Search | Scoop.it

Social media seems to have been with us forever.

In fact Facebook has turned ten!…that is an eternity in tech. Social media is so old that the fun police have turned up and are threatening to ruin the party.


The no rules and the dope smoking, beer swilling social media parties have started moving into the board room. The swinging 60′s of social have started to be invaded by the serious suits.

The politicians are now even pushing for social media privacy and protection laws. The lawyers have also joined. So don’t post anything too controversial on Facebook.

Five Phrases The Best Leaders Use Repetitively, And The One They Never Say

Five Phrases The Best Leaders Use Repetitively, And The One They Never Say | Job Search | Scoop.it

Have you ever seen someone solve a Rubik’s cube in less than 40 seconds? It’s mesmerizing. Turn. Twist. Turn again. Rotate. Align. Spin. The action goes by so fast, it’s almost dizzying.

How do people get so good at solving those little cubes? It’s not just the principle of “practice makes perfect.” The most avid Rubik’s cube solvers will tell you that they got really good once they understood the mathematical principles of the cube. They know how many rotations are needed to align certain blocks. They understand that the middle block never moves. They count their turns to ensure they’re turning in correct steps. In short, they know exactly how the cube functions, and how to make it work.

The best leaders do almost the same thing. They understand the personality and dynamics of their team. They take the time to get to know individuals and learn their skills and strengths. And then, they use their time-tested strategies—the five phrases below—again and again, to lead the team past any obstacle and empower them to create great work in every situation. In fact, the best leaders use these five phrases repetitively because they are so successful. What are the five signature repetitive phrases of virtuoso leaders, and the one thing they’ll never say? Read on to find out.

Here's how to make performance reviews useful

Here's how to make performance reviews useful | Job Search | Scoop.it

Business 2 Community compiled an infographic of depressing facts about performance reviews, and as you may have guessed, they are bleak. 20% of employees think their boss arrives wholly unprepared. Nearly half of people surveyed think their supervisor isn’t telling the truth. One-third of the time, performance reviews can actually lead to a decrease in performance.

The good news — yes, hope exists — is that managers can help fix these issues. For example, the same infographic points out how regular feedback increases employees’ scores and decreases turnover.
