Everyone that has ever started up a new business will tell you that it is important to be as streamlined and productive as possible, especially during those crucial early stages of business establishment, so that you can provide the best possible products and services to your customers.
One of the ways that virtually all businesses in 2014’s modern world can do this is by having the right technology at their disposal. Unfortunately, some business owners make the wrong decisions when it comes to buying in technology for their firms, and, as a result, they end up being inefficient and in severe cases this could even commence the beginning of the end for these fresh new firms!
Here is a selection of five top technology devices that all startup businesses should have in 2014, and the reasons why they are considered to be essential items!
1. Buffalo LinkStation Duo 4TB NAS Drive
When you are starting up a small business, the last thing you want to do is spend lots of money on computer equipment such as file servers. A cost-effective alternative would be to buy a device called a NAS (network-accessible storage), such as the Buffalo LinkStation Duo 4TB NAS Drive.
They are basically like portable external hard drives, except that they can be accessed over the network.
2. Konica Minolta Bizhub C35P Colour Laser Printer
One thing that people in every office need to do is print something out. A lot of offices seem to have two separate printers; a monochrome laser printer, and a colour inkjet printer.
The Konica Minolta Bizhub C35P colour laser printer gives you the best of both worlds by offering you crisp and sharp laser quality printing but with the added advantage of being able to print out colour images and photographs!
3. Apple iPhone 5S Smartphone
When you are out and about visiting clients and suppliers, you need to be able to keep your finger on the pulse and check your emails as well as being able to reliably make and receive phone calls and text messages, not to mention having at your disposal a number of productivity apps.
The Apple iPhone 5S helps you to do just that and more, and is a popular choice among all small business owners and professionals alike.
4. Apple iMac Computer
One of the things that you need in your office is a reliable computer, and whilst Apple computers tend to be dearer than their PC equivalent, the Apple iMac is generally a better-built computer which can also run the Windows operating system and associated applications, should you need to have a dual-boot system.
5. Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937G
Sometimes you need to speak to more than one person simultaneously in a telephone conversation, and so for this purpose you need a capable telephone that can help you make conference calls such as the Cisco Unified IP Conference Station 7937G.
It offers state of the art handsfree telecommunications which are clear and suitable for a room full of people, such as at boardroom meetings.
As you may well know, IT is the backbone of virtually all businesses around the world. Without the power of Information Technology, things would take a whole lot longer to do and we simply wouldn’t be as efficient as we are now thanks to the wonderful world of computers!
One of the things that businesses need to do is store important files in a central location. Whilst it is perfectly possible to embrace the cloud and use cloud-based storage, this can sometimes end up proving rather costly for small businesses that need to store a lot of data, and there is also the question of what would happen if the Internet stopped working temporarily.
In that particular scenario, things could prove slightly disastrous if two groups of remote workers were working with the same set of data; the wrong data could technically be updated, resulting in a lot of chaos for all parties concerned!
Therefore, an alternative and more-reliable solution for small businesses, especially those that are concerned about who sees their data, is to have a file server on-site. Servers are just basically powerful computers that offer a lot of storage space for users, and come in many shapes, sizes and flavours.
Now, you might be thinking that servers would possibly cost a small fortune but the good news is that these days, file servers don’t really cost a lot more than standard desktop computers.
They can be bought in a really small form factor, such as a small desktop system, or they can be purchased in ‘blade’ format, which is suitable for those who want to have an array of servers that they can install in a racking system, in a dedicated ‘server room’, for example.
The importance of having a server
You might be wondering why you should go to the expense of buying a computer that is simply going to be dedicated to storing files; after all, that’s what all computers do, right?
And external USB hard drives mean that you can easily save or copy across data from each workstation, so why should you go out and buy a server?
Here are some of the benefits of having a file server located on-site:
- It’s a central storage point - instead of users having to store files on their individual computers, they can store all of their important documents and images on the server. The benefit of doing this is other people can also access those same files, should they be stored in a public folder on the server;
- Files can be backed up - if a user stores files on their own computer and the hard drive failed, for example, it can be costly to try and recover the data. But if their files are stored on the server, those files can be backed up along with everyone else’s on a regular basis, resulting in a potential catastrophe being averted;
- It can be left alone - once a server has been configured, it can just be left to do its work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The great thing about servers these days is that they can be remotely monitoring. In other words, you can remotely connect to the server’s admin console from the comfort of your own workstation, without having to physically go up to the server in order to monitor or maintain it;
- Remote access can be set up - if you have employees that work from remote sites or even from home, and they have a decent broadband Internet connection where they are, they can remotely and securely connect to your firm’s file server and use it as if they were using their computer from the same location! This is also beneficial for those who travel around the world a lot, as it means they can still be as productive as office-based employees are.
Preparing for your new file server
Before you go out and buy a new file server for your small business, you firstly need to make sure that you have the space and appropriate power and network points for it. If you don’t, it’ll be easier to get this done before you get your server.
You also need to ensure that the server will be installed somewhere that is safe and secure, so you can forget about putting it at the end of someone’s desk, for example!
Once you have got it’s new home ready, you now need to start server shopping! There is a plethora of websites that you can buy file servers from, such as http://www.uk.insight.com/category/computers/servers, but before you do go and start spending your firm’s money, there are a few considerations that you need to take on board; they are as follows:
1. Storage Capacity
The server you buy has to have enough storage capacity for your needs, and it also needs to have enough expansion space for you to install extra hard drives in the future. As a rough guide to the total amount of storage space you need right now, consider 200GB as a storage allocation per employee.
2. Operating System
There is a number of different operating system options available for file servers, so you should determine which would work best for your particular environment. If you all use Windows-based systems, go for a server that runs the Windows Small Business Server operating system.
Mainly Mac users? A server running OS X Server would be the best fit for your environment. Some people decide to go with a Linux-based setup, such as Ubuntu, but regardless of what operating system you choose, make sure that you have the knowledge and skills to set it up and maintain it (or hire someone that can).
It is vitally essential that you have a backup plan in place for your server! You can either use the software that comes bundled with your server operating system, or you could use a third-party software package such as Symantec Backup Exec.
Mobile app developers have to tackle a lot of issues when they are creating their apps. It is really easy to start questioning if your app will ever get any users and if your idea is worth developing. In these situations it is a good idea to consider starting small with your app.
Below are five benefits of focusing on a small market first with your app.
1. Learn MoreWhen you narrow down the user base for your app and start by focusing on a small group of people you improve your ability to learn from the mistakes.
And you will make mistakes at first and there will be revelations along the way on how to improve your app.
Don’t think that you are giving up on something by just focusing on a small user base. Keep in mind that Facebook started as an application for Harvard users and quickly grew in popularity.
2. Personal RelationshipsSometimes it also helps to create a personal relationship with your users. For example, if you focus on the local audience first it is easier to reach out to them and personally show them the benefits of your app.
This is always much better way of highlighting the benefits of your app rather than just saying it is good on the app stores. So make sure you go and meet people and get them to use your app.
3. Sell It FasterYou are actually more able to sell your app quicker when you start small than if you focus on a bigger audience. This is mainly because of the above reasons and because you limit the amount of money you spend on developing your app.
You can also make much more targeted marketing with your app and focus on talking to the core group that benefits from your app. And if you can’t sell it to this small audience you are probably going to be better off with trying something new.
You can check out these PRWeb tips for selling your products to a small audience. It is essential that you also understand the marketing side when developing an app.
4. Easier To BroadenIt actually makes it a lot easier to start broadening your user base from a small amount of core users. Once you know how your app works you are able to start attracting more people to using it with confidence.
There are also plenty of tools available to make it very quick and efficient to implement your code across various platforms and devices. For instance, contact development companies like Marmalade for some expert advice on getting your app work cross-platform.
5. Save MoneyYou can end up saving a lot of money if you start your app development small. The truth is that there are plenty of apps that don’t make it and you don’t want to waste your time and money.
It is a good idea to develop an app as a side project first. It can help you focus enough time to it without spending all of your money and putting your financial security on the line on this one app succeeding.

With so many social media platforms out there and so many new and exciting ways to connect with customers it’s hard to know when your business is using social media the right way. Whether you’re just testing the waters of social or you’ve had a presence online for years there’s nothing worse than spinning your wheels only to find you’ve gotten nowhere.
So, how can you tell if you’re using social media effectively and efficiently?
There are a lot of metrics to keep in mind and they’re different from site to site so it’s crucial to have a system. Not only that, but it’s imperative you remember that social never stops – it’s something you’ve got to work at every day to succeed at! Let’s take a look at a few things you can do to ensure you’ve got a hold on your business’ social media program…
Pick a Few Sites to Really Invest In
One of the biggest mistakes businesses make is to spread themselves too thin when it comes to social media. Unfortunately, unless you’ve got a team of dedicated marketing personnel (which few companies do) you’ll end up with a lot of profiles on a lot of sites, most of which are just gathering cobwebs. The key to social is being active and engaging constantly with your audience so it’s smart to pick, say, two or three sites to really delve into while you build an audience. For most businesses, Facebook, Twitter, and a photo-sharing site like Instagram are plenty to get started with.
Decide How to Measure Results
Next you have to figure out how to measure whether or not you’re using your time on social efficiently. Not only should you have some analytics set up on your main website to measure where your traffic is coming from, you should also keep track of your social metrics. Facebook “likes” and wall posts are a great marker as are Re-Tweets and even LinkedIn endorsements. Every site has its own system but what really matters is knowing what the data is telling you so you can adjust your strategy if needed.
Constantly Put Out New Content
Businesses often make the mistake of assuming social is a lead-generation tool alone. Not true! You can’t just sit back and wait for customers to come to you on social – you have to constantly give people reasons to listen to what you have to say. That means blog posts, interacting with other businesses’ social pages, videos, and even related news articles coming from your social page. Think of your social presences as a way to tell your customers what your business is all about rather than a place they can find you.
Tie in Social With Other Marketing Initiatives
Social media is a fantastic way to supplement your already-thoughtful marketing plan. It’s important not to forget traditional marketing just because your business is trending digital and social media can be a great tool for enhancing a marketing campaign.
Consider, for example, having promotional bags printed up with your Twitter handle emblazoned on the side, or even a local commercial spot that invites customers to enter a contest on your Facebook page. Social is meant to be interactive and engaging and traditional marketing is a great way to lead people where you want them so you can deliver your message.
Overall, it’s crucial to keep tabs on your business’ social media efforts every single day. It may seem like overkill but in the online world things can change in an instant so you can never be too on top of your media campaigns. Every business is different in the ways they’ll use and succeed at social but one thing always holds certain: the most effective social media campaigns always start with a plan.

As demands for more complex autonomous programs escalate in all theaters of computer interaction, hardware progressively suffers more under the weight of larger files and new coding procedures which the developers probably had little or no foresight running on an eight-year-old unit. Eventually, users have no option but to either upgrade their computer, tablet or smartphone, or simply purchase a new one. Chances favour that most serious home offices will also have a printer, fax machine, copier and scanner - maybe all in one compact device topped off with an inbuilt landline phone. But why bother upgrading? These are lifetime investments, right? Not quite.
Here are a few simple, albeit powerful reasons to make the jump into new hardware:
Time wasted on a geriatric HDD in tandem with page file swaps off classic DDR modules and a decade-old Nehalem pegging every time you launch Chrome on an expired OS really doesn't leave much for efficiency. A brand new computer can quickly pay for itself just in the time it saves users with updated architectures and software interactions. There are also routers to consider; older routers don't support 5GHz bandwidths and dual-band connections, which are quite useful - but remember that the connecting devices also have to be compatible with those features.
If anything goes wrong with any of the devices you count on to keep your business or job rolling on a day-to-day basis, developers and their parent companies are far more likely to offer support, refunds and exchanges for newer devices. Older devices and software may also fall prey to exploits, especially if they're no longer receiving updates to patch out these problems.
Compatibility With the Latest Peripherals
Your company gives you a USB 3.0 Kingston pen drive and requires you to use a Thunderbolt 2.0 peripheral on a laptop or tablet with company-funded cell data service. Except, well, there's a problem here: your USB ports are all 2.0, you lack a Thunderbolt port, and your laptop lacks any sort of cell radio. You can purchase converter peripherals for the latter two, but these can be difficult to find and may prove unreliable once you acquire them. In these situations, it's best to simply invest in a new computer.
Smartphones are more than just phones. These provide not only relatively cheap Internet anywhere you go, but an astonishing gamut of innovative and incredibly lucrative apps. These can range from holding four-way phone video conferences, to network monitoring and intervention systems, to even remotely accessing files on your home office drives. Sometimes, you've got to leave the office and take your business mobile. These are the devices to do it with.
In an era of rapidly evolving digital technology, it's becoming increasingly necessary for computerized businesses to invest in upgrades to keep up with the snowballing demands for faster and more efficient communication, access and logistics wherever you go. Thankfully, as the price of this technology has dropped, it's become easier to invest in new technology as it becomes necessary. When the benefits outweigh what's lost, in the end, upgrading can only be a beneficial investment.

The major computer corporation, IBM, has made plans to invest in a group focusing on the research and development of cloud computing. The company expects to invest more than $1 billion dollars into this effort in order to help the group create cloud-based cognitive applications and services for businesses. The major investment will include more than $100 million to support IBM’s ecosystems of startups businesses building new applications. IBM is making a significant contribution to cloud computing through this investment and it is an important effort that could potentially transform how businesses create, distribute and consume information.
IBM Watson Group
IBM’s billion dollar investment is going into the new IBM Watson Group which will be headquartered in New York with more than 2,000 professionals working to design, develop and support cognitive computing technology. The group will be working on new technology that makes use of powerful computers and software to analyze information and give answers to complex problems like medical diagnoses or financial transactions. The work is based on artificial intelligence and will all be deployed in the cloud using IBM’s own Softlayer. IBM is proving through this investment that they are serious about the work that Watson Group is doing and want to make a contribution to the advancement of big data and analytics technology.
Creating A “Watson”
The work performed by the Watson Group is an effort to eventually create a “Watson” that can understand context, ask questions, have reason and use algorithms to help customers make decisions. The hope is that work in the labs will create a Watson that can fit into a smartphone and become a more advanced version of Apple’s Siri personal assistant app for the iPhone and iPad. The Watson Group has already created services delivered over the cloud including big data insights based on questions posed by the user. Their service known as IBM Watson Explorer helps users uncover and share data-driven insights more easily and makes it possible for businesses to launch big data initiatives faster.
With the type of technology being developed by the IBM Watson Group, a company executive can ask questions of their Watson analytics service and determine the causes of declining sales and related topics that can provide insight into improving business. Employees can all view and interact with data-driven insights and even add new data. The Watson Explorer also provides users with a framework for developing information-rich applications that deliver a comprehensive view of any topic for business users.
The Ultimate Advisor
With the investment that IBM has made into Watson, it is expected to become the ultimate advisors for better business decisions all powered by the cloud. The development to take place in advancing Watson technology will transform the professional and business world. IBM experts will identify markets for this kind of cognitive computing and they can include anything from health and financial services, retail, travel and telecommunications. The company believes that cognitive cloud computing has an important future and will be profitable for them as it grows and advances into a functional technology.

Tech events are often very specific in theme. It can be difficult to plan an event because many have the same idea for events after visiting prior events on similar subjects. Help with planning events to fit a theme is ideal, and for that help you can inquire with Venuesearchlondon.com for options and ideas. Event planners are a vital service in order to properly design, coordinate and partake in the event.
Select the Right Venue
The venue is important. Tech events should be held at locations that are designed for technology or include high-tech items such as automatic doors, smart devices and high-tech lighting systems. The venue should also be current, fresh and renewed feeling in design. Tired or old venues can make a venue boring, leaving guests less than pleased with their surroundings.
Consider Captivating Presentations
Arrange for a high-tech presentation to be given during the event. This can include a video trailer that includes the latest graphics, innovative design options and increased special effects. The event should also have a keynote speaker that is vibrant, current and exciting to listen to. Some tech topics are boring in nature but a talented speaker can easily make the topics interesting, fresh and fun to listen to. Presentations for new tech products should also be part of the festivities. This will get guests, major companies and some consumers with special access excited about new products or services. Building up the hype about a product before it releases is ideal.
Decorating for a tech event is often a difficult task. In some cases, it is just best to use simple colors that resemble technology such as metal tones, gray, black and white. Splashes of color to brighten up the décor can be done using centerpieces on tables. With these events being formal, the setting should be clean, crisp and exciting. Another way to add color is to use colored cloth napkins and napkin rings. Chargers can be used on table settings with each table having an alternating color as well.
Offer Food Made with High-Tech Devices
Try to theme the food and drink offerings around the overall theme of the event. This would include cold items made with liquid nitrogen or hot meals prepared in water baths. It can also include cold appetizer options made on an anti-griddle. These devices defy science and are technology related. Drinks can be made with innovative methods such as a bullet-type drink mixer or a creative fountain.Make the event surroundings fun as some of the happenings may not be so exciting. Tech events are generally serious in nature and can be difficult to make memorable and engaging. Stick to the theme and bring in elements to enhance the activities. It is ideal to get the help of an event planning service as their ideas may be fresh and exciting as well. Provide key items that you wish to be included as you, as the event holder, are going to be more in-tune with what will be expected as well as being more familiar with the topic and the standards that guests will expect.
It's the start of the year and what better way to light the torch than starting your own business.
“Me, start a business? I don't have the money.”
Yes, you. You don't need to have a lot of money just to be able to start a business of your own. As long as you have the right idea that suits your knowledge and skills, you can start a business.
So as a beginner entrepreneur, what business ideas are available? Again, these business ideas don't require you to spend tons of money, but having some spare cash can help push the endeavor further.
1. WordPress Theme ReviewingBlogs are very popular nowadays and most bloggers choose the Wordpress platform as a home for their posts. If you know the ins and outs of WordPress themes, this will be a good business for you. All you need to do is review WordPress themes and make money through affiliate commission. In other words, you will help sell the WordPress theme, but with your own review - to help buyers figure out what theme they really need.
2. CV WritingCurriculum Vitae or CV is a requirement for anyone who looks for a job. It represents the applicant's skills and qualifications. Thus, it is very important that a CV is done correctly and properly. And let's face it, many people do not have an idea of how to make a great CV or how to revise what they have. This can be your job and your business. You can sell CV templates or take custom job orders. People will pay for such service if it means increasing their chances to land a job. No money needed here.
3. English Tutoring or TeachingEnglish is the primary international language and everyone wants to learn it. However, not every non-English speaking person has the time to look for an English tutor wherever they live. This is where you come into the picture by offering online English tutoring or teaching. You can create video tutorials, manuals or go for Skype voice or video chats. You may need to spend on building a professional website though.
4. Manuals or Courses for KidsFor most of the year, kids go to school. But this doesn't mean that they can't learn something new during their free time at home and parents would love that too. Your business can be about making manuals or courses for kids. It can be entrepreneurship, technology, baking, cooking, writing or whatever courses that kids can learn at their young age. Of course, you just have to make the manuals kid-friendly. No money needed here.
5. Security Check for WebsitesIf you are someone who knows how to do a security check on websites, this is a very good business idea for you and you won't have to spend a dime too. All you need to do is check a website for security vulnerabilities and present them to your client. You can also offer to fix those vulnerabilities for a fee. Many site owners cannot afford to get their websites hacked or breached, especially if they have invested in it. Now you can actually put your skills to profitable use.
6. Recording Lessons on VideoFor this one, you may have to invest in a good video camera with good audio features as well. Your job is to go with instructors and teachers and take a video of their lessons, seminars, coaching sessions and etc. Many people wish they had the chance to review the lessons they've sat through, but unfortunately, not every teacher records videos.
7. Online ResearchingA lot of employers are searching online for people they can hire to do research. The main reason is because this will be cheaper than hiring an offline researching companies to do the task. If you have the researching skills, this will be an easy and a suitable job for you. And it won't be difficult to get clients online too. Just a tip, you may want to build your portfolio to show clients how thorough your research can be. Also, you may want to focus on specific niches.
8. Problem/How-to WebsiteThe most common purpose why people go online is to look for a solution to their problem. And since you want to earn money, you give these people what they want. You build a website where people can post their problems and at the same time, share their own solutions. People can also just willingly share how to do something on your site. How can you earn from this? Through membership and ads. But initially, you'll only need to spend a little on your website.
9. Vegan EducationMore and more people are becoming vegans. Making this switch in diet lifestyle will need more help than what people think. Even making the transition can be a tough thing to do. If you are a vegan yourself, you can share your knowledge with these people through making courses or manuals to help them out. You can start with a website and promote your courses there. Making recipe manuals and other things they need to know about being a vegan or about vegan foods is great too.
10. Car SellingDo you know how many people want to sell their car but can't be bothered doing so? What they do is go to a buy/sell website and just post their listings there. Selling cars this way can take a while. Your business will be about selling a car for someone and earning money through commissions. You can build a website where you can feature the car you're selling and do offline marketing too (this depends on location of the client). You will be responsible for matching buyer and seller.
What idea is your favorite one? What suits your skill set and knowledge? Feel free to share your own beginner business ideas too.
