Launched in January 2004, Google’s first social media venture, Orkut is shutting down on September 30, 2014. I received an email from the Orkut team notifying me of this development a couple of days ago.
If you know anything about Orkut, you may remember that it was launched even before Facebook. It was very popular in India and Brazil, although it never took off in the US.
Have you come across people who come to you for answers but actually seem to have all the answers already?
The situation becomes even especially more challenging when they have not paid for your time in trying to help them get their answers. I have had several such encounters with people who wanted me to guide them; coaching them so they could succeed in their careers. But, as it turned out, they really were not looking for anything but to waste my time.
Most of us have a Gmail account. Gmail has almost become a gold standard in email hosting. You might find yourself using it for everything in your life as well.
But, as everything else that comes free, your Gmail account isn’t always safe or secure. Your accounts may get deactivated or hacked for any reason and then you know how painful the recovery process can be.
This is the scary part.
On top of that, imagine you are using Google Drive to store your documents (like I do). Losing your Gmail account can be devastating for many.
The success of your email marketing depends on how many people open your email. Obviously there is no point in sending emails to those who don’t even open your emails, right?
Email open rates seem to be an important metric for many internet marketers. In fact, I have been very diligently following email open rates for a long time.
But, it changed after my friend and a fellow entrepreneur, Adrian Jock helped me understand this correctly.
TAKING A BREAK FOR REST OF THE WEEK
Due to a few personal commitments and pressing projects this week, I couldn’t put together a post that could add value. I didn’t want to publish because I must publish something.
Therefore, I am not publishing any additional post this week.
However, please check out my post about “Network Marketing” and add value through your comments and share it with your friends.
Thank you for the love!
