Some mobile marketing is similar to advertising delivered over other electronic channels such as text, graphic and voice messages. SMS messaging is currently the most common delivery channel for mobile marketing. Search engine marketing is the second-most common channel, followed by display-based campaigns.

The expanding capabilities of mobile devices also enable new types of interactive marketing. New mobile marketing channels include:

  • location-based service (LBS). which involves detecting the area the user is connecting from (geolocation ) and sending marketing messages for businesses in that area.
  • augmented reality mobile campaigns, which overlay the user’s phone display with location-specific information about businesses and products.
  • 2D barcode s, which are barcodes that scan vertically as well as horizontally to include much more information. A mobile user can scan barcodes in the environment to access associated information.
  • GPS messaging. which involves location-specific messages that the user picks up when he comes into range.

The Kelsey Group, a marketing research company, predicted that the mobile advertising industry would grow from to $3.1 billion in 2013, up from $160 million in 2008. The firm also predicts that mobile search marketing will account for 73% of mobile marketing by 2013, up from 24% in 2008, and that SMS-based campaigns would shrink to 9%, down from 63% in 2008. Display-based campaigns are expected to stay relatively steady, up to 18% from 13%.

Automobile History – Invention of the Automobile #history, #invention, #automotive, #automobile, #auto, #car, #inventor,

#

In terms of the lives of average people, there is little doubt that the automobile is the most revolutionary invention in the history of transportation since the wheel. The basic premise of the automobile is simple; choose a wheeled vehicle from the many types typically pulled by horses or oxen, add a motor and create a self-propelled, personal transportation vehicle.

The earliest ancestor of the modern automobile is probably the Fardier, a three-wheeled, steam-powered, 2.3-mph vehicle built in 1771 by Nicolas Joseph Cugnot for the French minister of war. This cumbersome machine was never put into production because it was much slower and harder to operate than a horse-drawn vehicle.

Amedee Bollee, also a Frenchman, built an improved 12-passenger steam car in 1873, but the steam engine proved impractical for a machine that was intended to challenge the speed of a horse-and-buggy. The invention of the practical automobile had to await the invention of a workable internal combustion engine.

The milestone vehicle was built in Germany in 1889 by Gottlieb Daimler and Wilhelm Maybach. Powered by a 1.5 hp, two-cylinder gasoline engine, it had a four-speed transmission and traveled at 10 mph. Another German, Karl Benz, also built a gasoline-powered car the same year. The gasoline-powered automobile, or motor car, remained largely a curiosity for the rest of the nineteenth century, with only a handful being manufactured in Europe and the United States.

The first automobile to be produced in quantity was the 1901 Curved Dash Oldsmobile, which was built in the United States by Ransom E. Olds. Modern automobile mass production, and its use of the modern industrial assembly line, is credited to Henry Ford of Detroit, Michigan, who had built his first gasoline-powered car in 1896. Ford began producing his Model T in 1908, and by 1927, when it was discontinued, over 18 million had rolled off the assembly line.

Best eCommerce Shopping Cart Software in 2017

This page includes my recommendations for the best shopping cart software as well as a few shopping cart related articles. Be sure to also check out our guide on how to migrate an eCommerce site if you re thinking about switching carts. It was last updated on December 22, 2016.

Hosted Shopping Carts

Hosting shopping carts are hosted by the company who created them. You pay a monthly fee and in return the company deals with all of the hosting, security, updates, etc so you can get on with the business of running your store.

The two downsides to these types of eCommerce shopping carts are the monthly cost and the reduced flexibility. But in today s world, hosted carts have become sophisticated enough where both of these are fairly negligible. Apps and custom scripts allow you to do a lot of customization and the monthly price often is lower than what you d pay long-term to a developer to maintain your own shopping cart software on your own server.

Heading into 2017, the most popular hosted cart by a long shot is Shopify. And I d argue for good reasons! In my opinion they have the best team, product and ecosystem of apps out there.

Disclosure: I ve worked with Shopify in the past and the link above is an affiliate link, meaning I ll get a commission if you sign up with them. But I also practice what I preach and genuinely believe they re the best. I recently spent $50,000 to migrate my own store to them.

Here s a list of other hosted eCommerce shopping carts and some brief thoughts on some:

  • Shopify My personal favorite in the shopping cart space
  • SparkPay Formerly known as Americommerce before it was purchased by CapitalOne and rebranded. Has a strong feature set by a fairly limited eco-system of apps and integrations.
  • BigCommerce Well known but have had some problems with support recently and have dramatically increased their pricing. We ve seen a lot of people in the private community flee them for Shopify.
  • Volusion Fading in popularity and a bit antiquated, but good for catalogs with lots of SKUs.
  • LemonStand Highly customizable hosted cart built with developers designers in mind.
  • 3DCart
  • Pinnacle Cart

Self-Hosted Open Source Carts

A self-hosted shopping cart is software you need to host and maintain on your own servers. It s 100% customizable because you have access to the source code which is a big advantage. But it s also much more more work to maintain and keep secure because no one else is updating, patching or maintaining it.

Hosted eCommerce shopping carts have become so good (and so affordable) that I d recommend them to just about anyone under $1 million in sales who is seriously trying to build their business. But they definitely have their place for highly technical entrepreneurs, store owners with very customized needs or larger businesses.

Magento is probably the most well known open-source self-hosted cart and the most commonly used one by private community members. It s also the most complex and difficult to manage. I ve talked with dozens and dozens of store owners who have been migrating away from it in the last 12 months as hosted options like Shopify have become more appealing in comparison.

WooCommerce is the 2nd most popular self-hosted cart in our Community It is actually a WordPress plug-in that turns the wildly popular CRM into an eCommerce shopping cart. It s definitely much easier to administer than Magento but not quite as feature rich.

If I was starting a store on a self-hosted platform today it d be OpenCart. It has a reputation as having a nice feature set while remaining lightweight and easy to administer and customize. You would need to have (or be willing to hire) some technical capabilities but I think it s a very appealing option.

Here s a full list of popular self-hosted carts:

  • Magento Extremely customizable and feature rich, but wildly complex.
  • WooCommerce Build on WordPress and easy to install and get up-and-running.
  • Open Cart A very clean interface, light design and good feature set.
  • PrestaShop
  • Ultra Cart
  • Ubercart
  • VirtueMart
  • Zencart osCommerce Built from the same architecture, these two carts are long outdated and are being replaced by much better options. I used Zencart to build my first eCommerce store. While it was a great option at the time, I wouldn t recommend ittoday.

Nearly all of the shopping cart software mentioned above is written in PHP. If you re a programmer in a different language, here are some non-PHP based options:

Current ratio e Quick ratio #attivitпїѕ #correnti, #quick #ratio, #current #ratio, #indice #di #liquiditпїѕ

#

Gli indici di liquiditпїЅ sono rapporti calcolati tra varie grandezze del bilancio riclassificato al fine di evidenziare la situazione di liquiditпїЅ dellпїЅimpresa.

NellпїЅambito delle analisi sulla liquiditпїЅ aziendale, due sono i rapporti maggiormente utilizzati:

il current ratio o indice di liquiditпїЅ generale;

  • il quick ratio o indice di liquiditпїЅ primaria.

  • Vediamo quali rapporti legano tra loro questi due indici.

    Il current ratio пїЅ il rapporto tra le attivitпїЅ correnti e le passivitпїЅ correnti.

    Current ratio = AttivitпїЅ correnti/ PassivitпїЅ correnti

    Esso esprime la capacitпїЅ dellпїЅimpresa di far fronte alle uscite correnti generate dalle passivitпїЅ a breve, con le entrate correnti generate dalle attivitпїЅ a breve.

    Il quick ratio пїЅ un rapporto che vede al numeratore la somma tra liquiditпїЅ immediate e differite e a denominatore, le passivitпїЅ correnti.

    Quick ratio = (LiquiditпїЅ immediate + LiquiditпїЅ differite)/ PassivitпїЅ correnti

    Esso esprime la capacitпїЅ dellпїЅimpresa di far fronte alle uscite correnti generate dalle passivitпїЅ a breve, con le poste maggiormente liquide delle attivitпїЅ a breve.

    CURRENT RATIO E QUICK RATIO: DIFFERENZE

    Current ratio = AttivitпїЅ correnti/ PassivitпїЅ correnti

    Quick ratio = (LiquiditпїЅ immediate + LiquiditпїЅ differite)/ PassivitпїЅ correnti

    Come si puпїЅ notare dalle due formule a confronto, esse si differenziano per il numeratore. Il current ratio, vede al numeratore tutte le attivitпїЅ correnti (ovvero la somma tra liquiditпїЅ immediate, liquiditпїЅ differite e rimanenze), mentre il quick ratio include le sole liquiditпїЅ immediate e differite.

    Di conseguenza, il quick ratio пїЅ in grado di fornire indicazioni piпїЅ precise sulla situazione di liquiditпїЅ dellпїЅimpresa rispetto al current ratio. ciпїЅ perchпїЅ, a numeratore indica solamente le poste delle attivitпїЅ correnti caratterizzate da una maggiore liquiditпїЅ, mentre esclude le rimanenze che rappresentano la posta delle attivitпїЅ correnti che genera un maggior fabbisogno durevole di capitale.

    E-business

    USER-ORIENTED IT SOLUTIONS

    E-business is primarily a programme, which links practical business understanding with an understanding of different types of digital platforms for trade, information, and communication – often with a focus on interaction.

    This programme teaches you to develop and work with digital solutions – all very different, however, with the common characteristic that the user is put first. While IT solutions in other contexts often are about doing things faster or cheaper, E-business is also about doing something, which has not been done before – or make existing solutions better. That is how E-business adds value. At CBS, you will discover that we discuss issues in a very practical way, and you will work with other students in groups on finding solutions based on real-life cases.

    You will for instance get to work with issues such as the following:

    • How will good digital platforms create more value for the consumer – in terms of function as well as experience?
    • How can digital solutions be incorporated strategically in different business models; supporting business activities and goals?
    • How do different IT solutions affect the way people perceive, act and collaborate?
    • How do you work with IT in an innovative context to create new solutions that work in practice?
    • How do you adapt solutions that are compliant with the law and the technological framework?

    AN AREA DEVELOPING RAPIDLY

    E-business may apply to traditional companies who wish to communicate or sell their products on the internet. However, E-business may also be about public authorities and other types of organisations using digital platforms to communicate, create attention, activate and involve the audience. More and more companies and organisations integrate E-business in their strategies, be it permanent solutions or short-term solutions in the context of a campaign. Naturally, E-business includes all types of digital technology and digital platforms, for instance traditional websites, apps, social media, internal business systems, or new, emerging platforms.

    In general, suitable E-business solutions are about bringing players, ideas and markets together in a new way and to create user-oriented communication supporting the strategic goals of the company or organisation.

    Different students – different courses

    The backgrounds of our E-business students are very diverse, and they hold very different bachelor degrees. This diversity is a quality in itself and our students learn a lot from each other. Students with design, IT and business backgrounds who collaborate all have experience from other places, which may benefit others and create more advanced and deliberate solutions than on an individual basis.

    This diversity also means that this programme makes it possible for you to compose your own personal programme of courses of your particular interest and which supplement the knowledge you already possess. If you have a technical bachelor degree, you may wish to choose business courses. On the other hand, if you have a business degree, it would benefit you to take courses that supplement your technical understanding. The courses are divided into three main disciplines:

    Business (B-courses): You will work with business understanding, especially within strategy, innovation, marketing, project management, and entrepreneurship in relation to different business models, and learn about how people innovate, design, plan, integrate, implement, and document in relation to different business relations.

    Technology (T-courses): Where we introduce you to development methodology, programming, IT standards, IT security, IT infrastructure, and IT network systems. So, by means of methodologies and programming, you will be able to participate in the planning and implementation of an IT business solution. The technological courses deal with what is possible today, but will also look at the technological development and the possibilities that follow. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Big Data are examples of areas undergoing a rapid development and where new possible applications emerge constantly.

    Policy/law (P-courses): Teaching activities in these courses include national and international business conditions, legislation (including EU legislation), digital administration and common practice in relation to use of IT in a business context – for instance when starting up a business. You will develop a basis for assessing and designing business IT in accordance with legislation, and we will be able to adapt business IT to organisational and societal policies in the IT area.

    The students can combine their courses in different ways depending on background and interests, however, the programme primarily focuses on interdisciplinarity; To understand consumers, develop new solutions, and think of solutions, which add a real value, are central themes running across the course blocks. These themes will serve as a basis for students who collaborate on creating solutions that work in practice.

    E-business is a two-year master’s programme divided into four semesters – autumn and spring. The autumn semester runs from the beginning of September to the end of November with exams in December and January, while the spring semester runs from the beginning of February to the end of April with exams in May and June.

    PLEASE NOTE: E-business is the only master programme at CBS which enrols students twice a year. It is thus possible to begin in autumn or spring.

    E-business gives you free hands to shape your own academic profile. At the beginning of your studies, you are taught basic IT. We recommend that you choose introductory courses within every discipline during your first semester. Afterwards, it is up to you to create your own profile.

    As an E-business student, you can take courses at CBS or other universities in Denmark or abroad. If you want to take courses at CBS, you can choose between many different courses, all approved by the study board for E-business among CBS own electives. If you want to take courses at other universities in Denmark or abroad, the study board will assess whether these courses can be included as elements of your programme. Find more information about courses at CBS in the programme regulations for E-business .

    PLEASE NOTE: Students enrolled to the programme in February may experience practical challenges in connection to studying a semester abroad.

    Whether you take your courses at CBS or other universities, you must meet the formal requirements for the composition of the programme:

    • The sum of the technology courses must be course activity of at least 15 ECTS and project activity of at least 7.5 ECTS.
    • The sum of the business courses must be course activity of at least 15 ECTS and project activity of at least 7.5 ECTS.
    • The sum of the policy/law courses must be course activity of at least 7.5 ECTS and project activity of at least 7.5 ECTS.

    A course may include lectures, assignments, practical and theoretical exercises, homework, field trips and the like. A project is a targeted, independent, supervised learning. The project activities ensure progression in the programme and prepare the students for their theses.

    The sum of the introductory courses may not exceed 37.5 ECTS and the sum of the advanced courses must at least be of 15 ECTS.

    Student exchange and internships
    The E-business programme provides you the opportunity to:

    • go on exchange
    • take electives at CBS or another Danish university
    • take an internship in a company or organisation in Denmark or abroad
