Best Businesses to Start in 2010

If is often said that markets make businesses. I agree with that sentiment. If you make a great product in a market without rabid customers, you will not make money. Similarly, if you have an amazing team but you are operating in a bad market, then your team will constantly be iterating the product but there still will be no appeal. 1. Clean Technology. The nation is obsessed with renewable energy. In order to stop global warming, we need to come up with new energy sources that do not emit CO2 and leave byproducts that are safe for the environment. Solar projects, smart grid, and wind will be key industries going forward, as the government recognizes the need for green technology. 2. Senior. People are living longer and longer. We are moving from needing tremendous amounts of acute care to chronic care for our seniors. The baby boomer generation is now turning 65 and retiring. This means there will be a huge increase in long term care facilities as well as telemedicine. 3. Health Care. Healthcare is one of the top priorities on the national agenda. The nation is moving from paper records to electronic medical records. There is a need to digitize patient record information so that there can be transparency between doctors regarding patient health. Building the infrastructure for this newly digitized system will be extremely lucrative for those with the skills and know how to do it effectively. 4. Mobile Content. Smart phones are becoming more and more prevalent. iPhones and Android phones make up a lot of the mobile phone market. People can easily jump...

From a construction project to a software project, the ultimate aim of the manager is to complete the project by keeping the overall cost minimum.

It is the responsibility of the manager to keep a watch at all these factors so that the factors are optimized and expenditure is minimized.

Google’s Solution To Businesses

Most people would never think of conducting bad business to produce poor online reviews and chatter to generate more backlinks. I never have, but I guess if you weren’t worried about sacrificing your personal integrity as well as your business’, the plan might have been effective. Until now… It is the natural tendency of most people to take the time to place a formal complaint about a business when they have been mistreated. Sure, they might verbally express their satisfaction with a business’ exceptional service, but they usually don’t go the extra mile and publish these thoughts. A New York Times story describing a woman who was terribly mistreated by a company that sells discount designer sunglasses, sheds light on businesses that use negative online publicity to improve their organic search engine rankings. This company consistently treated customers so poorly that the police even became involved, but the negative online chatter surrounding the company skyrocketed their site to the first page on Google. After reading the story, Google immediately gathered a team to address this type of link building strategy. They brainstormed a multitude of potential solutions including: * Blocking offenders * Using sentiment analysis to turn negative comments about a company into negative “votes” * Improving the sentiment analysis system to account for the negative comments * Listing negative comments for merchants next to their results in Google However, the first solution would not solve the problem for every offender using this type of strategy; the second solution could not properly attribute negative “votes” from large publications like The New York Times that simply mention the business; the...
