We’re going to look at AIDA and that stands for ATTENTION, INTEREST, DESIRE, ACTION, and these two steps ONBOARDING and RETENTION.
This is one of the oldest business frameworks still in use today. It’s from the 19th century, from origin marketers and it had these four steps that you see. And then I added onboarding and retention because they were selling soap and snake oil and things and they didn’t have this idea of onboarding people to a platform. So let’s kind of talk about what these mean and how we go from somebody that doesn’t even know that our thing exists. To a happy habitual user of our product or feature or infrastructure.
The idea is that ATTENTION is where we think about how does this user go from not knowing anything about our product or feature to knowing about it. And so we’re asking how does this, how do they even find out that our proposition or product exists. And above all the noise floor, and above all the things that are out there, how do we break through that and get their attention? In a way that’s relevant and helps us transition to the Second Step INTEREST, what engages them with your proposition?
So, for example, we might get somebody’s attention with adverts Google or Facebook ads. And then we might engage in let’s say that’s the first 500 milliseconds to one second of interaction with this person. And we get their interest with a landing page or some kind of focal explanation of what we’re talking about that gets us there their engagement for the next four to six seconds maybe.
I understand why people want as many Instagram followers as possible... but something that changed everything for me was learning one thing. Quality over quantity.
You want your Instagram followers to be as targeted as possible. Honestly, you can make an absolute killing with just a small, laser-targeted audience. If you're serious about growing your Instagram into a full-time income. Here's a direct link to this guide in PDF. When you learn what all the big players are doing, it's a game-changer.
Learn from the best in the industry, but also stand out from the crowd. There are tried and tested methods that always work, but you also need to find your own unique angle.
My first encounter with the term lean startup introduced me to the concept of a smoke test.
The idea was elegant - place a value proposition on a landing page with the intent of gauging customer demand. So, of course, I applied it immediately.
When I heard about Sean Ellis’ “How disappointed would you be” survey, I used that. When I heard about concierge testing, Wizard of Oz testing, and paper prototyping, I used them.
I used them without thought because that’s all I knew. I used them because someone whose name I recognized used them and wrote it down on a blog, in a book, or on a slide. I used them with the same flawed logic that says Air Jordans make great basketball players. After six years of living lean, I’m starting to recognize that to build something great, to build something that will last, to be a great carpenter, we don’t need a great pair of sneakers; we need a great toolbox.

The basic idea with this framework is that the attention step, our user, or customer doesn't even know this thing exists, how do we get their attention?
Then, how do we engage their interests?
What job, what desire do they have that we pair with a meaningful proposition, that they like, that they find valuable, they think will be valuable to them?
Desire is the least directly measurable, but there's some emotional reason why they want to go do this, there's some emotional drive, that's bringing on to do this. What is that?
Action, this is a very important step that's often neglected, what exactly do they have to do to start using your product or your process? How do you minimize that?
What do you need to test that? Onboarding is everything that has to happen for them to become a regular sort of full use of the product. So, for example, with Facebook, that might be going and finding and connecting to their friends with a product like a CRM, like Salesforce, it might be getting your calendar on the system or getting your data in there, so your sales manager goes and looks at salesforce instead of emailing or calling you.
These days a lot of people worldwide lost their jobs and their incomes. Many of them right at this moment are struggling financially.
So, what I what to say is that it doesn’t actually matter which type of industry you are in. What matters is if you want to do some additional work from home or not!
For example, I have been working from home (because of the coronavirus) for more than 30 days. So I #stayathome thinking what else can I do to fulfill my free time.
On the other hand, I have been trying for months to find some additional income by working online from home. I saw many YouTube videos with lots of ideas and some of these ideas sounded really good.
However, there are couple things that I want to share with you, some of them are totally free and some of them are cheap but combining couple of them together really push me in online business with expected income because they open my perspective in this business as I see it now clearly.
So let's get started:
In Microsoft Windows, there are many ways to get a list of all files in a folder, including all the files within all the subfolders. However, here is one effective way of doing that.
You have to open the cmd prompt in Windows by typing Start / Run/cmd or Search cmd.
After you get the cmd prompt you have to point it to the directory that you want to list. For example, if the directory X is in
C:\downloads that you have to type in cmd prompt
cd C:\downloads (cd refers to change directory.)
List all Files Recursively
To save results to a file:
C:\>dir /s /b>filelist.txt
View them a page at a time:
C:\>dir /s | more
Kanban is a strategy for optimizing flow. The practices in the Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams help enhance and complement the Scrum framework and its implementation.
Many videos on Youtube compares Scrum and Kanban. Rather than just comparing the two, in this video Joshua Partogi share some practices on how to use both to improve your agility:
The Kanban Guide for Scrum Teams helps you add professional flow concepts to improve your value delivery. Don't forget to read it:
A distinguishing feature of servant leadership is that whereas most modern leadership theories focus upon what the leader does, servant leaders are defined by their character as well as by manifestly ‘demonstrating their complete commitment to serve others.’
Empirical testing of the servant leadership concept is promising in so far as it has been shown to produce heightened levels of team effectiveness and individual follower well-being. Spears identified 10 characteristics of servant leaders from Greenleaf’s writings:
Definition: Dependencies are technical relationships among code that create and reflect social relationships among individuals, groups, and organizations. Another simple definition: A state in which one object uses a function of another object.
When is optimal time to deal with it: After you gone through and identified certain tasks then you can start considering the various dependencies that may occur.
Types of dependencies:
Answer on the article headline: software dependencies affect the development of systems by creating situations where developers and groups must engage in articulation work, and organizations must participate in social worlds.
