Upon getting information about an upcoming school science fair and the need to consider a topic of interest, many students will typically have no idea where to get started. While the science fair is typically a common occurrence in any school at any grade level, there are different types of topics that should be taken a look at depending on the age of the student. After first taking a look at the many different categories of science projects, you will be able to locate a suitable choice of topic to take to the next level.There is a wide variety of categories that fall under the types of science projects that can be chosen for a school science fair. These include biology, chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, medicine, environmental, mathematics, engineering, and earth science. While you may not have yet learned very much in any of these categories, don’t be afraid to see what each one entails. Taking a good look at your interests will allow you to focus on the right direction to take.Many resources are also available for those who are unsure as to the topic they are wanting to use to create their science projects. If you take a look at the topics that fall under the biology category, you will likely notice that there are topics that deal with plants, animals, and humans. For those who are in 2nd grade or 3rd grade, an interesting topic may be to determine if ants are picky over what type of food they eat. While this topic might not be of interest to an 8th grader, it is certainly something in the biology category that an elementary school student would enjoy.Along with the biology category, a high school student may want to take a look at diffusion and osmosis in animal cells as this would be a more appropriate topic for the grade level. A student in 6th grade would be more advanced than an elementary school student, but not as advanced as a high school student. At this middle school grade level, a topic of how pH levels effect the lifespan of a tadpole may be of interest.Whichever resource is used to locate a topic for science projects, it is always a good idea to consider the grade level of the student prior to making a selection. It is always assumed to be best to have a project at an appropriate level in order to keep the attention of the student and provide a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
It is All about digital marketing,I hear far too often from medium to the larger corporations that the biggest fear they have with any digital marketing strategy, predominantly utilising Facebook, or any social media platform for that matter; the possibility of receiving negative comments on their Facebook business pages etc.Well that is an interesting idea; aren’t they saying categorically that they expect negative comments because they either don’t believe in their product or they have concern about their ability to provide an accepted level of service to their customer? They consider a digital marketing strategy with Social Media dangerous to their brand, this is so typical with corporate Fat Cats operating in a safety net, while collecting their large salaries, but achieving nothing… So from the onset they do not have faith in their product? Then why on earth are they in business or why on earth do they work for an organisation that they fear! Why don’t they just improve their game and get back to basics? OK, Im side tracking again.Or even easier than that, encourage the negativity, don’t fear it. After all, it is that negativity that can help them strive towards the perfect product or greater service; the negative comments are from their customers or potential customers, shouldn’t they be listening (or engaging) with them? Of course they should! That is what digital marketing is all about.Marketing has moved into a completely new paradigm of customer engagement, (due to many digital marketing techniques) listening and evolution. Old school marketing techniques are not only coming back, they are back, and to top it off relationships are being forged like never before.Facebook, as one example, has given an opportunity for the first time in history to create a one to many and many to one communication platform for business. A business can market itself to many people at once (like the TV, radio or even print media) BUT Facebook allows for the many to chat back, and not only to you but to each other.To not embrace this paradigm shift is not only foolish, but naive. Embrace digital media.Now let me assume that many of you are aware how important your use of digital media, and more so Facebook, for your business is; you have setup a Facebook page and started to post content. Great, BUT, you have to do it right! Facebook is about engagement and relationship building, some of you will recognise that concept to brand marketing. Well that’s exactly what it is. It is a platform for you to market your brand, not relentless selling as many do. This is a key part of digital marketing with Social Media.Let me get back to what prompted me to write this post. I had noticed a rather large business, in the Health niche, post a comment on Facebook about health insurance (obviously, that’s what they sell after all) They apparently got inundated with some negative comments. This is fine, but it’s what they did next that was a disaster! And it’s not the first time I have seen this done, and certainly wont be the last. Instead of addressing (engaging) with their potential customers they made a comment on the post stating that they have removed some comments due to the nature of them. EPIC FAIL! especially for a digital marketing business. The only comment they made was to highlight that they censure their content. Does that not make you question their integrity as a business? So the opportunity to engage and potentially gain respect, and more customers, was blow out the door; not only did they not engage (which incidentally this page rarely does) but they had such disrespect for the potential customer that they deleted their comments.I am not having a go at this particular business, I have a close friend whose business does some great stuff on Facebook, but they don’t engage! They miss the number one reason they are digital marketing on Facebook; engagement and building a fan base (customers and potential customers). They regularly post some great images, and I always make a comment, but not once has there been a response to my comment! Again, fail! A business should make it policy to have the last word on ALL comments on Facebook. The concerning point here is this particular business outsource there Social Media to a supposed expert.Getting back to the moral of the story, use digital marketing strategies, especially Facebook for your Business, promote your business on Facebook not by advertising but providing interesting content; and most importantly ENGAGE with your fans! That is what marketing is all about after all!
In recent years, the economy has forced some sellers to get creative in their efforts to sell their property. Banks have become much more stringent with their lending policies recently, and this has resulted in many potential buyers running into difficulty in obtaining financing. The result is that more and more sellers have taken the initiative to finance their buyer’s loan themselves. Most sellers initially list their property for sale with the goal of getting a lump sum of cash at the closing table. However, if you had to offer seller financing to get your property sold, you likely now find yourself in the position of accepting monthly payments from your buyer rather than having that lump sum of cash in your bank account. The good news is that there are companies that will buy this note from you and give you a lump sum of cash in return.Seller financed notes have often been negotiated to between the buyer and seller, and may include term for a period of 10 to 30 years. They may have been structured to include a balloon payment or they may feature a special interest rate. Essentially, the buyer and seller structure the loan in a way that works well for both parties. When you approach a company to buy this loan from you, the company will analyze the terms of the loan. Some companies will only make an offer to purchase the loan if the loan terms have been structured in a specific way. For instance, some companies will only consider buying loans that do not have a balloon feature or that are amortized over 30 years. There are other companies, however, that will consider buying more creatively structured seller financed notes. Each company that buys such notes considers different loan criteria, so it is beneficial to shop around before you commit to an offer to purchase the loan.
