Running a service business? Then you might understand the need for a robust appointment scheduling solution. Appointments, if mishandled, will end up making the customer furious and lead to under utilization of your resources. In both cases, there s a very good chance that your bottomline gets hurt.
Deploying an online appointment scheduling app will benefit both you and your customers. Coconut Calendar is one such web app that works to maximize your schedule with the least amount of downtime. After the break, let us go over the steps to create an effective appointment booking setup.
If you have been a consistent reader of Web.AppStorm, you know that there are some great applications out there for the web. There are many times that I wish a lot of these were actually on the desktop instead. Take for example, Pandora, I love using it, but there is not native desktop app for it. Well, about a year ago, I came across a solution that has been such a great way to enjoy them natively.
In this post, let me show you how to use Fluid, an application that changes a web page into a desktop like app. I don’t know about you, but I am moving more and more toward using the web for a lot of my daily tasks, email, calendar, social networking, etc., and I hate having so many tabs open in my browser. With Fluid, I can change all of that and have these websites launch by itself versus being stuck on the web. Let me show you what I am talking about.
Simply put, writing a resume is no fun. The first step to getting a job is getting noticed, and your resume is the best way to do that in a traditional job application process. Problem is, there are so many things to keep track of: font sizes, concise descriptions, word and page count, and more. Even when you get everything right, there is no way you can be sure that your resume really has the chance of standing out. You can bet at least half of the resumes mailed in by fellow job seekers are equally thorough.
You might have to think out of the box to stand out. That doesn’t mean you will have to hire a video artist to create your resume in Barney Stinson style. Instead of using boring and cliched layout and wordings, you should try something new, but that’s still within reach. How about an infographic? Kinzaa works hard to make your resume pop with a unique twist on a traditional resume. Intrigued? Keep reading to see what Kinzaa has to offer.
With my job and a passion for tech, I have a home computer, work laptop, iPhone, iPad, and am often at a variety of other computers throughout the week. With so much bouncing around, I realized that I needed two things readily accessible on any device that I was on, that being my Internet passwords and bookmarks.
The beauty of the web is that I can access it from just about any computer. In the case of this post I am mainly focusing on bookmarks, usernames, and passwords. I use the web so much each and every day that I need a quick and easy way to access vital information regardless of the computer that I am on. Because of this, I turn to Xmarks for my bookmarks and LastPass for remembering my usernames and passwords. If you have never heard of these two web gems, you are going to want to read further to see how these two web apps can help you easily access what you need, when you need it.
A Global Village. There has never been a time when that adage was so true. Thanks to Internet, there are no boundaries anymore, well, almost. From communication to commerce everything happens in English. While people could just learn English, to reach more eyeballs, localization is the key. Translation services are available aplenty, including Google’s fabulous free option.
But translation is one among a few steps you will have to conquer before going truly local globally. Smartling ensures that the best ideas are not locked up for English speakers alone. The service aspires to let everyone find, read and share their ideas online, in their preferred language. Shall we go ahead and figure out how it gets things done?
Videocasts can be a fun addition to any website, giving people a glimpse of what you’re like in front of the camera and promoting some face-to-eyes interaction. There are many different services to host your videos with, but today I’m going to show you how to get started with just one: Vimeo.
We’ll take a look at some of the basic features of Vimeo and also explore the added benefits of paying for a Vimeo Plus account. Let’s get started!
Planning makes life easy. In fact, a lot of us plan things ahead using the best technique we know or works for us. So planning isn’t the problem. General laziness and short attention spans are some some of few reasons things that were planned in advance do not get done. But it is an undeniable fact that we move forward at least a bit more with a plan, than when we don’t have one in the first place.
There’s no dearth of apps and techniques to plan things in advance. One among them is MoreDays that plans to mesmerize with the sheer beauty of the web app. Moredays is a completely new way of planning and recording life that cross the borders of standard planning and turns paper calendar into an electronic/digital calendar. Time to take it for a spin!
