Windows_June02_BDid you know that computer performance can be hampered if you keep your hard disk packed with unnecessary files? One way to prevent this from happening is to use the Disk Cleanup tool. which removes old files that have been sitting in the hard disk drive for too long. These unused programs and files stop your computers from performing to its full potential. Disk Cleanup enables you to determine which files can be removed without threatening specific computer functions.

How to operate the Disk Cleanup tool

Disk Cleanup can easily be accessed through the start menu or by searching Disk Cleanup. Once it has been opened, this tool will automatically select Drive C, although you can switch to other drives, and will show a list of file locations containing files that can be removed. Adjacent to each file location is data about the size it is taking up from your hard disk.

Each file location has a corresponding checkbox that needs to be selected in order to delete the unnecessary files it contains. Upon highlighting or selecting certain files, the description of the files will appear at the bottom of the window so that you know exactly which files you are removing.

When Disk Cleanup completes you need to restart your system to remove the unnecessary Windows Update files. Remember, the Disk Cleanup tool only removes those files that it thinks are no longer needed, hence usually very few are deleted.

The benefits of Disk Cleanup

  • Saves time and increases your efficiency - The traditional way of opening folders to find old files to delete may suffice for some, but not for those who prioritize productivity. Although files can be deleted manually, you may not know how, and the Disk Cleanup is faster too.
  • Makes your computer more reliable - Some programs are automatically downloaded through the Internet and are often virus-infected, therefore infecting other files as well. The Disk Cleanup tool can clean unwanted programs and virus-infected files which are decreasing your computer's reliability.
  • Maximizes your drive’s memory - The ultimate advantage of cleaning up your disk is the maximization of your computer’s storage space, increased speed, and improvement of functionality. Upon clearing the disk drive, the computer can perform at greater speed enabling you to use your device to run at peak performance levels.
The Disk Cleanup tool is as handy to launch and operate as any basic program, so there is no hassle of installing new software and tools to clean your computer. Not only does this allow you to use your disk space for necessary files but also improves your productivity.

androidphone_June2_BMobile devices like smartphones and tablets play a huge role in helping today’s workforce get things done while on-the-go. With that in mind, storage space has become an essential backbone to support today’s fast-paced world, giving users security, versatile support, and peace of mind. And with more people turning to Android devices due to factors like increased apps and lower costs, the question is how you can increase your device’s storage space.

MicroSD card:

The best way to get more storage on your Android device is to buy a microSD card. A decent 64GB card can be bought for as little as USD$40 and inserted straight into your smartphone or tablet. Go to Settings and Storage and assign what you want to be saved to your microSD card in the future, as well as moving existing files to maximize storage space.

It's important to note that not all devices have microSD storage slots. The Nexus 5, for example, does not support a microSD card, so make sure your device can support expanded storage in this way first.

Cloud storage:

While a fair number of Android devices do have a microSD card slot, an alternative option for freeing up space is to use cloud storage. Those that haven’t embraced the changes the cloud have brought may find it a little tricky at first, but it soon becomes second nature. We recommend using cloud storage apps to store images, important files, and any files which are either too big or too small to make accessing them via a data connection worthwhile.

One of the best ways to access cloud storage is to download an app to your Android device. The perk here is that with most cloud storage apps, you can set these to automatically back up selected files. Make sure to check that your files are saved on the cloud app and then you can delete the files from your smartphone or tablet to create more space. The only downside to this is that you’ll need Internet or data connection to view photos on your Android device.

Delete unused apps:

If you have a new Android device and you’re already running out of space, you can free some by deleting any bloatware that might have come preinstalled on your device. Some bloatware apps can’t be deleted, but most of them can be removed. Simply go to Settings then tap Apps and then tap the app you want to delete and press the Uninstall button.

If you’ve had your Android device for some time, chances are that you have downloaded many apps including those that are rarely used now. Uninstalling these apps is a great way to free up some space. Simply open your app drawer, tap, and hold on an app to uninstall. When your home screen pops up drag the app to the top of the device and drop it over Uninstall to delete.

Wireless hard drive:

A wireless hard drive is a final option for gaining access to more storage space on your Android device. It is exactly the same as a portable hard drive, except that you connect to it via Wi-Fi.

One of the best wireless hard drives available right now is the Kingston Digital Wi-Drive 32GB which can be bought for as low as USD$50. These wireless hard drives are usually available from 32GB to 1TB, so make sure you choose one that will cover your future usage as well.

Having more storage space on your mobile device will not only enhance your work security but also give you some room to breathe. Looking to learn more about Android phones and what each one has to offer? Call us today for a chat.

SocialMedia_June02_BWhile many of us have a profile on at least one social media site and likely have for a handful of years now, we are seeing businesses joining these platforms in an ever increasing number. Many business owners create a corporate profile in order to interact with customers and conduct marketing. One of the more popular ways to market your business through social media is through social PPC.

Define social PPC

Businesses who advertise through social media have a number of ways they can get their ads and content seen on this platform. The most popular is based on one of the Internet's oldest marketing schemes: Pay-per-Click, or PPC.

In a broad sense, PPC is the act of paying an advertiser or website to place ads at strategic locations. Placing these ads is usually free, or comes with a nominal fee, but when a user clicks on the ad and goes to the destination site, the owner of the ad pays the advertiser or site a small fee.

In relation to social media, social PPC is simply ads which are placed on the social networks. For example, you can pay Facebook to place an ad on the right-hand bar of certain user's News Feeds. If they click on the ad, Facebook will then charge you a set amount for that click.

Where social PPC differs from other types of PPC, more specifically search PPC - paying search engines to display your ads - is that it is more display oriented. With search PPC, you pay the engine to show your ad when specific search keywords are entered. With social PPC, you pay the site to display your ad regardless of what the user is looking at.

3 Common misconceptions about social PPC

While this process is becoming more popular with businesses, especially those who have integrated social media into their marketing plans, there are some common misconceptions that seem to be floating around.

1. Starting small is the way to go

As with most strategies in business, when starting something new you often want to test the waters before jumping in full scale. Many companies who are trying social PPC for the first time will often start with one or two campaigns running at the same time. While this may work for small businesses with an unproven profile, those with an established profile and marketing strategy may want to try running 3-5 campaigns at the same time.

The reason for this strategy is that it can help spread out the overall views, along with enhancing the quality of information and results. For example, you can easily compare and establish what is working when you have more than two alternatives to compare.

2. You need to be active on the services you target

Despite what some people in charge of marketing believe, you don't need to be active on a social network in order to be able to use social PPC features. Many networks, like Twitter, simply require that you have an account in order to be able to use the ad features.

If you do want to use the ad features of different social networks, you should be sure to at least have a fully completed profile. This includes address, name, location, and business info. Of course, if you want to enhance the success of your initiative, an active profile will help but it is not necessary.

The best example of this is if you want to use the promoted post feature in Facebook. You will need to have content in order to actually use this feature successfully and the more content and followers you have, the higher the chances of what you promote being seen.

3. You MUST be using Facebook Ads

Facebook is the most popular social media platform, and many businesses already have a Facebook Page. But many feel that in order to maximize the potential of their Page, they need to be advertising using Facebook Ads.

Sure, it can help to use this service, but it isn't the only one out there. You do have other options, including different platforms such as LinkedIn and Twitter. To really get the most out of a social PPC campaign you should try different platforms anyway. For example, if you want to target other business customers try using LinkedIn, which is where this target group may be more likely to be found than through Facebook.

Office365_June02_BHas your business calendar kept you stuck in the office for too long? With clients to be met, files to be finished and emails to be responded to, you might feel like you are locked up at your desk all day without a key to escape. Microsoft's Lync might be the communication tool that comes to the rescue by allowing you to connect with your clients remotely. You can boost your business efficiency even when you are out of the office with this comprehensive messaging program.

Get immediate response with instant messaging

Sending emails is a fast and standard way to communicate in business. However, there are times when you have to convey or get hold of some important information in the soonest time possible. Stashing your message in a pile of emails might not cut it and this is when you can switch to Lync’s instant messaging feature. Your message will be sent immediately, with a pop-up also appearing on the recipient's device to flag the message so you know it will most likely have been seen. It’s fast, efficient, and by cutting to the chase, a real time saver.

Hold meetings with HD video conferencing

Reporting can be done with ease through Lync’s HD video conferencing capabilities. This enables you to gather your associates from anywhere in the world, whether to present specific data or deliberate a decision. Not only does this allow communication with several people at the same time but also transmits clear videos to the other end of the line with its 1080p HD quality.

Brainstorm with your team through application sharing

Online meetings sometimes prohibit the sharing of files. With Lync’s application-sharing capabilities, you can easily exchange ideas with your team. You can share PowerPoint presentations, documents, images, Web pages or your desktop with your team to stimulate conversation based on your input and what you have to report. Lync supports all animations and features of Microsoft PowerPoint, letting you create an engaging presentation without the restriction of your location. If you choose to share your desktop instead, you can select which part of your screen you’d like to show your clients, eliminating the unimportant clutter flashed on your monitors. You can also share a virtual whiteboard that allows you to collaborate with your team as if you were stood in the same room. Online communication has become today’s trend for conducting business meetings. However, the choice of which application to use to accomplish tasks requires knowledge of the key features of specific programs. Through Lync’s online communication system, companies have minimized expenses allotted for reserving third-party conference areas, business trips, and in purchasing expensive communication systems. Lync supports Windows, iOS and Android systems. What could it support, enhance, and boost in your business?

voip_May26_BVoIP solutions are a great way to save costs and increase productivity, especially when it comes to remote and mobile workers. With business trends like Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), companies have been forced to expand their remote communication capabilities in order to hold their own against competitors. While many companies have VoIP solutions in the office, they may be struggling to extend this to offsite or mobile employees.

To benefit from the positives that VoIP can bring to businesses it is necessary that VoIP works with the reality of your business needs. When it comes to catering for out-of-office workers, there are a variety of ways you can help expand the mobility of your VoIP services.

1. Look into Unified Communications

If your employees are able to bring their own personal mobile device to work, your IT administrators likely rely heavily on users complying with your company’s policies. It is up to you to establish good security and compliance measures in order to meet the needs of both your customers and employees.

A solid solution is to look into Unified Communications (UC), which integrates real-time communication services such as instant messaging, telephony, data sharing, and video conferencing. In other words, UC helps bridge the gap between VoIP and other computer-related communication technologies, as well as help control presence, a status indicator that conveys willingness to communicate and single number reach.

2. Employ easy to use apps

Believe it or not, most top-rated business apps began as user-focused tools to help people find data more independently. Some of these apps have transformed into more customized tools to keep focus on specific business needs. The one problem with this is that satisfying these needs often sacrifices overall usability. If your employees are struggling to use the mobile version of your VoIP solution, then they likely won't.

What this can lead to, especially when a mobile solution is required, is use of unauthorized apps. The problem then is that this can lead to an increased security risk. To avoid this, try implementing an app or tool that is easy to use, easy to navigate and easy to manage.

3. Work with an experienced solution manager

When looking to expand existing VoIP solutions, or implement new ones, it can be tough to actually manage the solution and ensure that it works when you need it to. One of the best ways to achieve this is to work with an IT partner like us. The perk to outsourcing management of a solution to us is that you can have us get your apps and solution set up and then take over administration of your mobile services once his is established.

4. Cloud support

Having on-premise equipment and support for your VoIP solution is a good idea. However, the problem here is your existing IT team may not be ready for the challenge of providing cloud-based mobile app or voice support. We recommend you go for a hosted VoIP solution, which delivers the same cost-effective, network-based service but where the equipment is based at a provider’s site rather than in your data center. This eliminates the cost of on-premise gear, maintenance costs, and overall management, while increasing the overall effectiveness of your mobile solution.

Expanding VoIP mobile capabilities can enhance business productivity by effectively keeping both your customers and employees in contact with your business more easily. If you’re interested in learning more about VoIP solutions, don’t hesitate to contact us today.

Productivity_May26_BIn today's offices there are an ever increasing number of distractions and competing demands that tasks always seem to take our attention away from the task at hand. As a result, overall productivity can decrease. This is obviously not the best strategy for successful business, especially when the pressure is on to get work completed. If this is happening in your office, there are a number of strategies you can employ to bolster productivity.

When it comes to problems with productivity, it can sometimes be difficult to spot what the main issues are. Productivity can suffer over time as challenges and work habits have an effect on what is achieved and how. Even if you're not aware of any productivity concerns, it is worthwhile checking from time to time where you can boost efficiency.

Prepare for the day ahead

Nothing is as important as knowing which of your tasks matter the most. Collect your thoughts the night before and create a to-do list for the next day. Determine which demand needs immediate attention and which can be done later that day.

A priority list will enable you to focus on those business needs that require immediate attention, allowing you to complete more tasks. By allocating a specific order and time to each individual job you will be able to more clearly achieve and evaluate your progress at the end of the day.

Shut personal connections out

The worst distraction in the office is employee connectivity to the outside world. Social networking sites, emails, and personal calls divert the focus from significant and pressing work concerns to personal matters.

The key here is to look at how you can contain the social aspects which make work enjoyable and employees happy, and balance this personal freedom with the demands of your business. You may find that restrictions are needed, such as limiting personal phone calls. Some companies impose a ban on social media sites and keep a tighter reign on personal communications. Other companies keep a more open policy but instead instill in employees a personal responsibility to impose limits on their own behavior.

Get in the working zone By showing your colleagues that you are busy and concentrating on your work you put up a barrier to them distracting you. By being polite and friendly but putting your work game face on you can show your determination and produce results to show at the end of the day. It's easy for time to drift by with idle chat and unnecessary interruptions which could wait until break time.

Set personal deadlines

You may have a deadline set by the demands of a job you are focusing on, or set by someone working with you, but personal deadlines are also necessary. By giving yourself a set time to furnish reports and deliver outcomes, for example, you keep yourself focused and produce results. Keep your desk free from piled-up paperwork and tasks so you do not have to cram to meet deadlines.

Determine your distractions

Know which, from among the office clamor, distracts you the most and create a way to eliminate, minimize or extract yourself from this problem. Is it noise from other people that is bothering you or perhaps as simple as the pop-up notifications on your computer screen? Do yourself a favor and deal with it.

Focus is at the core of these guidelines. Start asking yourself what is preventing you from concentrating. Look at how you work and what the situation is when you're in the flow and getting what you need to achieve done.

Productivity is essential in the corporate world as it is about fulfilling goals, ambitions and commitments, which can have a spillover effect on your life outside of work too. Determine which from among your tasks need to be fulfilled first, focus and boost your productivity.

BusinessValue_May26_BAs a business owner, or manager, you probably have a social media profile and create content for it. One of the most common types of content is blog articles, and yet some companies have problems actually getting their content shared. If you post articles to bring in new customers and interact with existing ones, then you need to know how you can enhance the chances that your articles are shared.

The key to getting your content shared

There are countless blog posts on how to create content that is shareable. And to create content that will be shared by users on social media and other platforms you need to know why content gets shared in the first place.

In order to help, we scoured the Internet and found a great article over at OK Dork, which was written by the content masters at BuzzSumo. This article listed things you can do to increase the shareability of the content you produce. While it is quite a long article, we found there were some great tips worth talking about here. In order to make things a little easier, we have split this article into two parts. Here are the first five tips you can leverage to increase the reach of your content, and more specifically the blog articles you create:

Create longer content

Take a look at what people share on their social media profiles and there is little doubt that the vast majority of content is short, and can range from often photos and videos of funny cats to memes. But look at the articles that are shared and you will often find that the most popular ones are actually longer, or long-form as they are referred to by content experts.

The main reason for this is because there are fewer long-form article creators out there, and there is a demand for higher quality, well researched and well-written articles. Sharing this type of content generally adds some depth to a posting which can create a more involved and sustained dialogue.

You might want to mix it up to increase shareability by creating some articles which follow this longer style approach. You could try writing shorter articles on a regular basis, for example, with a 2000 word article say once a month.

People like images

Think about the last time you read an article in the newspaper without an image, or even saw a link on social media without an image. Did you remember the content, or did you even click on the link? Many people wouldn't. So, if you want your content to be shared on social media add some visuals.

With longer content visuals not only serve to draw the eyes of the reader and break up content to keep the reader engaged. For shorter pieces, an image can attract initial attention and give the reader some an idea about what the subject of the content is.

The key here is to include visuals with every piece of content. Make sure that the image relates to the content and is interesting enough to capture attention, enough that users will want to share what they see and read.

Even Twitter users like images

Although Twitter is largely based on text posts visual content tends to be shared more by users of this platform.

As per the point above, try to have a visual with every piece of content. If you are an avid Twitter user, try coming up with titles or overviews that are 100 characters or less. This will leave room for a link on Twitter to the content. If social media users likes the content, and there is an image too, chances are higher that they will share it via Twitter.

Using certain emotions really helps

If you want people to share your content, you need to write articles that evoke emotion. The three most successful, when it comes to sharing, are:
  • Awe
  • Laughter
  • Amusement
If your article inspires one of these three emotions, you have a drastically higher chance of the content being shared. Generally speaking, if content makes someone laugh or think about an issue then are more likely to share what resonates with them.

The other emotion to capitalize on is selfishness. Take a look at your Facebook News Feed and we guarantee that you will see a ton of quizzes shared by people. These quizzes are usually something like "What TV character would you be?, or "What's your dream job?", etc. While entertaining, these quizzes appeal to our more narcissistic sides. They provide little to no value to your followers, but they can be fun and help social media users establish an identity which they can compare with others trying out the same 'test'.

You can also try to create articles that challenge normal assumptions or are opinion pieces on relevant hot-button issues. The spark of debate that the content ignites is sure to attract interaction with comments and sharing, and you can also keep interest going via social media.

Users love infographics and lists

When writing your articles, you have a wide variety of ways you can format your content. Most people will agree that your articles, regardless of length, need to be broken down into easy to read sections, especially if you want to keep mobile users reading. There are a number of ways you can do this, but the two most popular are through infographics and lists.

What this tells us is that readers generally prefer content that can:

  • Display a large amount of information in a clean, easy to read, and visual format i.e., infographics.
  • Are scannable.Take for example list articles. You can format these to be highly scannable, yet still include all the essential information.
  • Tell us what to expect. We like to know what an article is about before we read it.
If you are writing longer articles that contain a large amount of information try creating an infographic, and summarizing the most important parts in a list.

Next month we will reveal five more tips to enhance content sharing. In the mean time, if you have any questions about creating effective content or on social media, contact us today.

iPhone_May26_BThe smartphone is one of the most desired must-haves in business. And because of the desire or need to be able to access certain features, many users choose the iPhone because it is user-friendly and has a lot to offer. Whatever device you use, a basic requirements has to be the ability to go online. However, yet there is one way that devices can connect which many users do not know about, and that's tethering.

Tethering defined

Tethering, mobile devices is the act of connecting your phone to another phone or another device, so that the Internet or data connection can be shared. Your iPhone can either share its data connection with another device, or have that device share its connection with your phone, allowing you to go online.

USB connection

A USB connection allows you to connect directly to your laptop without draining your phone's battery. It is a way to connect securely and browse Web pages faster than other types of. However, It can drain your laptop’s battery since this connection instantly charges your iPhone.

USB also minimizes movement and device connection since you are plugged into your laptop and the wire won’t let you go anywhere too far. Be sure to bring your laptop’s charger and that you leave your phone somewhere safe should you need to step away from your computer. Tethering your device via USB connection promises a fast and secure connection.

Bluetooth connection

Bluetooth connection receives the slowest signal from an Internet modem by far. On the other hand, the wireless connection allows users to move freely and preserve battery life longer than with WiFi connection. The trade off here is better battery life at the expense of slower Internet speeds.

If you forgot your USB cable and can’t seem to connect through WiFi, then your last resort would be to connect through Bluetooth to connect to the Web, which is better than having no connection at all.

WiFi connection

Wireless LAN connection can be best set up through WiFi because it receives data speed far faster than Bluetooth. This ensures a faster connection and maximum mobility as the wireless connection enables you to move freely within the signal range.

The down side of WiFi, though, is its ability to empty your battery in the shortest time. This type of tethering can drain your battery faster than any other, so make sure that when you use your WiFi to connect to a hotspot, you are either fully charged or you bring your charger with you.

The ability to connect anywhere using another device can make your online life easier and more convenient. Through this, you can check important Web updates such as email, online documents, and access other Web data without having to pay through data plans.

Whichever option you choose in getting your device connected, what’s certain is the value you’ll get from it will outweigh its cost. Maximize your phone’s capabilities through tethering and say goodbye to your life offline.

iPad_May19_BFor over a decade Safari has been the default browser on all Apple systems. Many iPad users have seen no reason to change browsers either, since Safari has many great features to offer. One such feature is the Favorites Bar, which needs to be activated to use. Once you have done this you can get so much more out of your browser.

While loading pages using Safari may happen in a blink of an eye, typing and retyping url addresses can be a hassle. Safari’s bookmarking toolbar, known as Favorites Bar, is one way to save your favorite Web addresses for future browsing. However, this is often hidden with the default setting.

By enabling the Favorites Bar on your device, you can create a handy tool to hold all your saved Web pages for future reference. You can access these files in a single click and make browsing frequently visited sites quicker and easier. Here are some steps and guidelines to assist you in using iPad’s Favorites Bar.

Show the Favorites Bar in your browser

To show your favorite pages on your Web browser, go to your device’s Settings menu and look for Safari. You’ll then see a number of options at the right side of your display. In the General Options, tap the Show Favorites Bar so that the switch turns green, indicating its activation.

Once this is enabled, you can then head back to Safari and browse as you save and edit the most important pages on your browser. These pages will be lined up below your address bar for easy access.

Add a bookmark

Add a page to your list of favorites by clicking the Share button at the left side of the address bar for that page. The dialog box will show several options, so tap Bookmark and input specific details before you hit Save.

Edit and delete saved pages

Your saved sites might be good for a long time to come or just in the short-term. When a site becomes redundant or you want to demote it, you can delete this from your bookmarks folder or place it at the bottom of your list, below more important and more frequently used sites.

To be able to do this, go to the Bookmarks button at the right of your address bar and tap on Favorites from the dropdown list. The sites you have saved will be shown. Tap Edit at the bottom right of the dialog box. You will then see a circular red button at the left side of your list while on the right side will be an arrow and a set of multiple horizontal lines at the far right.

You can delete the pages by tapping the red minus button at the left side or rearrange them by pressing the horizontal lines and dragging the pages where you prefer them to be. Tap the arrow to edit site information such as title, link, and location.

The Safari Favorites Bar can help you navigate and get to your most visited sites more easily and efficiently and being so easy to set up there really is no reason not to utilize this feature. For businesses, getting quickly to sites that are used all the time increases productivity and efficiency.
