How to Choose the Right Social Media Channel
Feb 24, 2016
A few weeks ago, we covered “How to Get 1001 Blog Subscribers in 30 Days and Convert Them into Loyal Customers.” To be honest, you need a reliable and affordable way of channeling prospects to your business… but you have to have a good site design to begin with. I’m going to assume you have found your market and your niche. You can’t sell ice to an Eskimo… you can try, but you’ll go broke. Assuming you have the niche and market… You need the right ‘fly catchers’. Otherwise, you will just be wasting your hard earned money on traffic solutions that lead nowhere.

What You Want From Web Hosts, and How Bad Hosting Can Hurt You
Feb 23, 2016
It can be a little daunting to compare different web hosting companies. Here are some of the most important things to keep in mind when you select a provider, along with ways that the wrong service can be detrimental. Getting Started with Your Search Track Record Equipment & Uptime Backups Cost Customer Support Connectivity Why Poor Hosting Choices are Problematic Conclusion Getting Started with Your Search Especially with the rise of CMS options such as WordPress and other site-building systems, creating your own site has become much more manageable for novices. One challenge for business owners, though, is figuring out which web hosting service is the right choice. There are currently more than a billion websites online globally. Every one of those sites is hosted, whether through the company’s own data center or an outside provider. Web hosts tend to sell their plans with a huge amount of attention toward price. Of course affordability is a critical factor, but there are other considerations as well. Here are some of the top strengths you want to see from a web host, as well as ways that the wrong hosting can hurt you.

Two Surveys: Cloud is Growing, Strategies Adapting
Feb 17, 2016
Cloud is growing at an incredible pace, just as it did in 2015. As cloud comes into its own, IT managers are learning how to better strategize to make the most of these virtual systems. Cloud Becoming Increasingly Popular with Business Rise of Hybrid Cloud, DevOps, Containers Cloud Becoming Increasingly Popular with Business A study conducted by the research firm Clutch shows that two out of three medium and large companies will spend more on cloud systems this year than they did in 2015. For the poll, which interviewed 300 information technology executives, more than two in five (42%) expected their cloud budget to rise moderately: 11-30%. Smaller proportions expected mild and extreme increases in their use of cloud: 27% said it would remain the same, while 14% expected a 31% to 50% greater expense. Meanwhile, only 6% said they would be using less cloud than they did last year. Since cloud is growing so incredibly, it could be a chance for service providers to fill the emerging business demand. Specific services that enterprises most need include app deployment (51%); disaster recovery and backup (62%); and storage (70%). Plus, all companies require strong hosting as they realize they want the […] The post Two Surveys: Cloud is Growing, Strategies Adapting appeared first on Superb Internet.
Cloud Fuels Disruption in Security Market
Feb 02, 2016
Cloud computing is having a major impact on all other areas of IT and delivering generally profound changes to the business world. Here’s a look at how the security field is evolving to embrace the cloud in 2016. Malware Protection Use of Firewalls Load Balancing Encrypting Switching App-Based Storage Conclusion The security industry is rapidly changing, with firewall and switching companies fading away to make room for solutions more directly geared toward the cloud. On the other hand, there are certain types of security firms that will continue to grow as the landscape shifts increasingly from physical to virtual. Malware Protection Anti-malware companies have expertise related to security, but their focus has traditionally been on in-house systems. Now that the cloud is becoming so central to computing, malicious parties are turning to those systems as points of entry for attack. In 2016, anti-malware firms will further invest in the development and introduction of cloud-specific tools. The services that will be used are fundamentally similar since the basic idea is to check traffic for possible malware injections. One challenging aspect is interoperability, notes TechCrunch – “how the anti-malware solution gets inserted into a cloud system to which it doesn’t necessarily have access.” […] The post Cloud Fuels Disruption in Security Market appeared first on Superb Internet.
Colocation? Or Keep Your Physical Machines Internal?
Jan 27, 2016
Of course many businesses are moving to cloud hosting. However, there is another way that businesses are still using third parties for physical systems: colocation. Considerations for Data Center Cost-Cutting Should You Use Colocation? Controlling Your IT Budget Externally When you put together a spreadsheet with your data center budget, you really want to be skeptical of every component. You can often nix certain aspects to trim costs, and colocation will often make sense. Considerations for Data Center Cost-Cutting Cooling is a huge expense in data centers, and it is easier to control than ever before. You can probably raise the temperature a bit. You can also benefit from a free air cooling or adiabatic system long-term. You will have to pay upfront, but your power bill will drop, and often upkeep will be reduced too. Is your data center getting bigger? Data center growth is questionable as cloud computing continues to be more heavily adopted as a primary system. The idea of a single app on a singer physical server is no longer reasonable. The old model was incredibly inefficient, with hardware grossly underutilized at 10% server and 30% storage capacity in many cases. Cloud technology works even when you […] The post Colocation?

Major 2016 Concerns of IT Chiefs
Jan 19, 2016
Chief information officers are being pulled in numerous directions at once. What are the most critical areas that should not be neglected in 2016? Keep increasing digital sophistication. Leverage cloud to enhance flexibility. Recruit for changing IT dynamics. Protect your own position. Reduce grunt-work time. In the coming year, as always, CIOs have to figure out how to best use their time to help their businesses grow. It’s easy to get involved in challenges that are complex but don’t have a lot of value. To establish focus in the new year, here are five of the most important concerns for CIOs in 2016. #1 – Keep increasing digital sophistication. CIOs have to be keeping pace with technological developments because the digital aspect of business is becoming a more powerful revenue stream all the time, with Gartner predicting that the cash generated through digital means will rise from 16% to 37% through 2020. The Gartner researchers note that a side-effect of the expansion of digital business is that CIOs now must meet the needs of more diverse populations, such as the company’s leadership, outside partners, and the organization’s clients. The shift to cloud and diversification of infrastructure are ever-present elements of […] The post Major 2016 Concerns of IT Chiefs appeared first on Superb Internet.
Cloud as a Standard-Bearer of Service-Oriented Architecture
Jan 12, 2016
Cloud can be thought of as today’s version of the old tech notion of service-oriented architecture. Let’s look at SOA, its benefits, and how cloud fits into the picture. What is Service-Oriented Architecture? Thinking in Terms of Services Benefits of Services How is Cloud a Further Evolution of SOA? How Cloud SOA is Different What is Service-Oriented Architecture? Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is an approach to building IT systems that embraces the service as the fundamental point of focus. Here are three basic parameters of an IT service: It is logically based on a task that occurs over and over again, with a standardized outcome (such as delivering geolocation data or organizing financial documents). It exists as a single entity. It could also include additional services. Thinking in Terms of Services Service is not an idea that originally comes from IT, of course. Instead, it is a straight business term. Look in any business directory and you will immediately notice how many different types of services are being offered. For any type of service available on the market, the company, or provider, “is offering to do something … that will benefit other people or companies (the service consumers),” notes the Open […] The post Cloud as a Standard-Bearer of Service-Oriented Architecture appeared first on Superb Internet.
Interoperability: Key to Fast Cloud Growth
Jan 05, 2016
From Legacy to the Virtual Expanse Speed as an Ultimate Priority 2015 & Beyond From Legacy to the Virtual Expanse Earlier in the history of the Internet, companies created massive customized environments to store and access customer data, marketing copy, bookkeeping, best practices, and more. When these were developed, interoperability was not a concern. Typically the software adopted by companies was about making life easier for the IT department (in the sense that they had control of those variables). User-friendliness wasn’t always prioritized, which led to people getting frustrated with IT. That whole dynamic started to get upended about 10 years ago. That was when Web 2.0 apps started hitting browsers, followed by an explosion of mobile apps. These fundamentally user-focused applications were exactly what people wanted in business. A short time following the rise of the app, cloud started making it possible for employees to access software immediately, which is how Shadow IT started to develop, explains Ron Miller of TechCrunch. “Instead of going to IT and asking for resources, a process that could take weeks,” he says, “users could sign onto a cloud service and provision software, servers, storage and even developer tools with a credit card.” As these […] The post Interoperability: Key to Fast Cloud Growth appeared first on Superb Internet.
Top 5 Dedicated Server Mistakes to Avoid
Dec 29, 2015
Dedicated servers can be costly. How can you get the most value out of one? The first step is to avoid these common pitfalls. What is a Dedicated Server? Getting the Most Value Error #1 – Poor Cost Management Error #2 – Lack of Attention to Authorizations Error #3 – General Security Neglect Error #4 – Failure to Test Error #5 – Excessive Concern with the Server Itself Conclusion Cloud computing has been growing incredibly over the last few years, but many companies still choose to adopt dedicated servers (whether run in-house or at a hosting service’s data center) instead. Many businesses are attracted to the fact that they have total control of the machine and that their system is operating through a distinct physical piece of hardware. What is a Dedicated Server? Think you know what a dedicated server is? It’s a single server used by one company, right? Actually, the meaning is a bit different depending on context. Within any network – such as the network of a corporation – a dedicated server is one computer that serves the network. An example is a computer that manages communications between other network devices or that manages printer queues, advises […] The post Top 5 Dedicated Server Mistakes to Avoid appeared first on Superb Internet.
Big Banks Talk Containers & Cloud
Dec 22, 2015
In the finance sector, data safety is paramount. The adoption of cloud and containers by two huge banks demonstrates that these technologies are of use to virtually any organization. The Growing Financial Cloud Simplification at the Big Banks Streamlining & Public Cloud Forest, Not Trees Top Performance & Security The Growing Financial Cloud For financial firms, the question of using the third-party virtual systems of public cloud is challenging: financial information must be highly secure both to maintain reputation and to stay in line with regulations. Any data solution used by banks must be carefully scrutinized prior to deployment. Two of the findings from a poll published in the spring by the Cloud Security Alliance suggest that the financial industry, like healthcare and the rest of business, are increasingly comfortable with cloud technology, particularly public cloud: More than four out of five finance-sector companies that are still establishing their cloud plan will use public options (as opposed to private or hybrid ones), at least in part. Almost three-quarters of poll participants were currently transitioning from hybrid to public models. Those “two statistics show added comfort and assurance when practicing in the cloud and [are] an encouraging sign of maturity in […] The post Big Banks Talk Containers & Cloud appeared first on Superb Internet.

Lead magnet… check. Opt-in Box… check. Squeeze page… check. Now, it’s time to get the Thank You page wrapped up and build in a Self Liquidating Offer… let’s get started. The Execution Plan – #4 Thank You Page Now, you’ve created your lead magnet… you’ve created and installed your squeeze pages and opt-in boxes… now what? Once your prospect opts in, you need to direct them to a Thank You page. The Thank You page simply informs them to check their email box for the lead magnet (if they gave you a good email address) and then offers up a quick thank you… …and you could place your SLO or Self Liquidating Offer I mentioned previously in this article here. This “bridge” will span the gap from solving one problem they have to solving the greater problem… for example, the desire to become a tennis pro. The SLO is also called a TripWire Offer and is designed to quickly convert your prospect from a ‘subscriber’ into a ‘customer’. After all, we are in this to make a little money right?

Trends & Forecasts from the IDG Cloud Survey
Dec 15, 2015
As one author explains, cloud is not only technologically but philosophically disruptive: it has changed the way we understand digital interaction. Let’s look at that broad view and then zero in on highlights from a 2015 cloud survey. Cloud as a Tech Model Highlights from New Cloud Survey Use of Cloud to Meet Business Goals Forecast for Adoption of Cloud Infrastructure & Apps Use of APIs in 2016 Budgets Decision-Makers Effect on IT Cloud as it Should Be Cloud as a Tech Model In the just-published book A Pre-History of the Cloud, author and former network engineer Tung-Hui Hu explores how the cloud changed our perception of the Internet. He does so by tracing the development of the use of cloud as a model within communications and technology. One of the first appearances of something that resembled the cloud was in a 1922 diagram that suggested a system of telegraph connections to enable mathematicians to rapidly interact for better weather forecasting. Another project fashioned in a similarly nebulous, interconnected manner came in 1951, when AT&T announced its new electronic skyway, which was a US-based network of microwave relay stations.

Once you’ve completed your lead magnet, it’s time to build out the “fishing lures” aka the Opt-In boxes. Let’s get started! The Execution Plan – #2 Tools to Create and Install Opt-In Boxes In order to install an opt-in box on your blog – you will first need email marketing software like ConstantContact, AWeber, or MailChimp. Each of these services will allow you to create a ‘list’ for your lead magnet. The list is what will store your email subscribers you obtain from your blog. In addition, the email service is where you will log in and send emails from. The email service will also be setup with an ‘auto responder’ and optin system that keeps you CAN-SPAM compliant (which is important). The email service will deliver your lead magnet quickly and automatically for you as well… which aids in creating a tighter bond with subscribers.

Data Science “Fails” to Avoid
Dec 09, 2015
Data scientists are getting paid huge salaries, presumably to infuse their businesses with insight and allow stunning differentiation from competition. However, many organizations aren’t using this field to its full potential. Fail #1 – Too Much Data, Not Enough Science Fail #2 – Lack of Clearly Established Goals Fail #3 – Chasing After Leprechauns Fail #4 – A People Problem Fail #5 – Thinking it’s Just a Trend Fail #6 – Demanding Black and White We can all agree that the era of data science is in full swing. If we need any further evidence of that truism, we can look at the high salaries companies are willing to pay to specialists. For instance, in Australia, the average data scientist now makes $200,000 – the equivalent of $146,000 in USD – according to a report from data intelligence consultancy Which-50. Although business leaders know that having experts who are focusing their efforts on data analytics is increasingly critical, companies still are not fully capitalizing on their data science investments. Nearly as many analytic experts say that their business is not making full use of their capabilities (37%) as say that their role is fundamental to their firm’s competitive advantage (40%).

Why Use a Dedicated Server? Five Reasons
Dec 01, 2015
Discussion of web hosting has become cloud 24/7, but using a dedicated server is still a completely reasonable choice. Let’s look at what a dedicated server is and the advantages of using one. What is a Dedicated Server? Access/Control Security Uptime Your Own IP Service Options What is a Dedicated Server? A dedicated server is a single server that is designated for the specific use of one company or individual. It typically includes a Web server program (such as Apache) and other basic applications, along with an Internet connection through the hosting service’s data center. Dedicated servers are often used for websites with large amounts of traffic. The customer is able to control the server remotely from its own office. The cost savings include those for the router, security software, network administration, and web connection. When a company gets a dedicated server package, they may have to use a particular operating system or might have a choice – typically Linux vs. Windows. Sometimes companies already have their own hardware or want to invest in custom equipment but still want a place to put it and to take advantage of the other benefits of data centers. In those cases in which the […] The post Why Use a Dedicated Server? Five Reasons appeared first on Superb Internet.
The De Facto Cloud Should Be Transformative

There are all these reports coming out that cloud is now the “de facto” choice for technology – that basically it has trumped legacy systems so substantially that it’s now the top tech priority for businesses.

Although cloud has been on the rise for years, it’s not reached a plateau. A poll of IT senior executives shows adoption will continue to grow in 2016.
