Imagine if you had a bucket of water. And every time you attempted to fill the bucket, 90% of the water would leak out instantly. Every time, all you’d retain was a measly 10%. How many times would you keep filling the bucket?
The answer is simple: just once.
The first time you noticed the leak, you’d take action
You’d either fix the bucket or you’d get another bucket, wouldn’t you?
Yet that’s not at all the way we learn.
Almost all of us waste 90% of our time, resources and learning time, because we don’t understand a simple concept called the Learning Pyramid. The Learning Pyramid was developed way back in the 1960s by the NTL Institute in Bethel, Maine. And if you look at the pyramid you’ll see something really weird.
That weird thing is that you’re wasting time. You’re wasting resources. You’re just doing everything you can to prevent learning. And here’s why.

1. Marketing 101: Develop a powerful and compelling core message.
Say something, say it well, say it often. Why should customers buy from you? Why should they even take a second glance? You need to build a powerful message that gets key points across without clutter because clutter is what leads to abandonment. Although this is the essence of a successful branding and marketing campaign, you`d be surprised how many companies fail to grasp this concept.
2. Make sure your core message is €œbenefit oriented. People don`t buy services or products, they buy the benefits of those services or products. In all your communications, make sure your message translates into specific benefits. Continue reading SEO:23 Powerful Marketing and Branding Tips Geared to Drive In More Traffic and Revenue
Here’s Top 10 Natural Beauty Tips to keep a healthy and beautiful body 🙂
1. Brushing Up
Make body brushing a part of your daily routine. Scrubbing out dirt and grime is the least of its advantages. Body brushing tones and stimulates skin, helping with the natural drainage of the lymph glands. It also helps combat cellulite. When brushing, work towards the heart, up from your legs and thighs, and down from your neck. Oh, and remember, skin should be dry while body-brushing, so make sure you have a soft brush – you don’t want abrasions that are hard to explain!
2. Banana Rama
For a great homemade face softener, try this: mash a banana and apply it to your face. Leave on for ten minutes and wash off with lukewarm water. Your face feels like satin. Plus, it puts those over ripe gooey bananas to good use!

One of the most problematic and confusing issues most webmasters have with Google concerns linking. How your links are ranked? How you should link out? How you should construct your internal links? How you should get more inbound links? How many links should you have on a page? And the lÃst of questions goes on…
Perhaps, the most annoying aspect for the struggling webmaster, has been Google’s secrecy in how it actually ranks links and pages. Google’s whole PageRank and Ranking Algorithm is so complex that no one can fully boast they understand how the whole system works.
Google’s ranking secrecy and complexity has probably been well-planned mainly because there are millÃons of webmasters who would like to “game” the Google Algorithm and achieve high keyword rankings through manipulation with so-called “black-hat” SEO techniques and reverse engineering.

It is possible to learn from both good and bad examples. Usually I write about what you “should” do to optimize your website, but now I will highlight some of the things that you should “not” do when you prepare your web pages. This list is not in any order of importance as all the points should be taken seriously if you want your site to do well in the search engine queries for your main keywords.
1. Using a “Splash Page”.
I think you have seen sites where you go to the main page and all you see is a beautiful picture with the two words of text saying “enter here.” The picture is beautiful, no doubt, but this is a disaster when it comes to search engine optimization. Search engine robots are looking for text, but there is no text on a “splash page.” The main page of any website is the most important page, and it has the best chance of being optimized. If you use it to place a pretty picture, you are throwing away this chance. Search engines don’t appreciate splash pages, and many human users too are annoyed by having to click to finally view the content. Avoid splash pages at all costs.
