Simple Survey is Good but ...

When you do survey, keep it simple.
Survey itself becomes annoyance.

At the Alfa Romeo site, survey screen popped up. I said yes to that.
Then it took me to the survey site with tons of question asking me about my experience with the site.

That is stupid. I just arrived at the site and I have not seen anything. The survey asking me about my site experience ... my answer is NOTHING.

Beautiful but Challenging
18th hole par 5 ... I got my first birdy.
Score Card
I was invited to play golf at Inglewood Golf Club this morning. What a great golf course. I shot 51/44 = 95 today. I have a few excuses.

(1) This was my second full round of the year.
(2) I was recovering from the Arthritis and Infection of my foot joint.
(3) I was using company golf club with regular shaft (I usually play Stff).

But for that I think I played better than I was expecting especially the back nine.

Newsletter Vol. 24

I want to do marketing.

Dear Reader,

When you ask many applicants what they want to do, most of them say they want to do “Marketing”. When I hear that I asked them to define marketing. Then they tell me “Advertisement Creation”, “Advertisement Placement”, “Search Engine Optimization”, “Social Media Campaigns” and so on. So I ask if they think “Marketing” is a revenue-generating function of the company? Most of them think so.

I tell them unless you are a big corporation which has a lot of money to burn, “Marketing” is an expense. I understand the purpose of “marketing” is to generate revenue, but there is no guarantee that the money you spend will generate any income. So for me, “Marketing” is an expense which needs to be justified not just by the gut feeling, but the bottom line.

So, when you do your “Marketing”, you need to keep track of how much you spend how much you get back. You start small and test the water. When you find a small marketing program that generates at least what it costs, you start increasing the budge. Anything you do that generates no return, terminate it immediately.

Do not hire any outside marketing specialists. Their job is to make you spend money. They make nothing if you do not spend. Remember “Marketing” is an expense not revenue by itself.

Use Click It Audio

Last year I was browsing the Internet and found an article that I was interested in - so I started to read it. I am not a fast reader and unlike newspapers or magazines, reading long articles can be very tiring. So, I selected the article and with a click of the right button on my mouse, I chose Speech (I'm a Mac user, and I don't know if Windows has this function). It started to read using computer synthesized audio.


Tired of reading?
Click on the icon above.


I thought it would be nice if the author of the article could read it for me. As a test, I recorded my voice using Mac Recorder and created an MP3 file. Then I tried to embed that audio file in to a web page. It turned out to be not so easy and the end result was very ugly on my screen. I needed a simple solution to upload audio and embed it in to websites and blogs. From there, we created the prototype of Click It Audio and showed it to some people.

ClickItAudio.com was registered in February 2018. Since then, we have added several features such as:

- Free signup for 3 audio file uploads
- Audio bumper appended to the end of free uploads
- Auto-generated QR code for each audio file
- Audio replacement (which allows the user to replace the audio up to 3 times)
- Custom Icon Upload
- RFID Activation Test

We are working with the professional audio recording company, Woodstock Media Group, to offer affordable and professional recording service as well. For more information on audio creation service, please check out https://woodstockmediagroup.com/clickit-audio.

Too Late

You see many IT giants like HP, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon, Alibaba, eBay, DELL, Expedia, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tesla, Line, What’s App and so on and think there will be no company like that anymore but I bet within a few years there will be some company you have never heard of will be in that list. I can also guarantee you that that company is not started by someone who thinks it is “Too Late”.

If you think it is “Too Late”, you are indeed “Too Late”. Even if you think it is not too late, it will not happen by itself. Do you think Bill Gates, Paul Allen, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Pierre Omidyar, Jack Ma, Elon Musk, Martin Eberhard, Marc Tarpenning, Michael Dell, Bill Hewlett, and David Packard made their company by just thinking about it?

There are a few things you need to be able to succeed. You and my success may not be the level of the companies above, but never the less you need to have flooring things.

You must work hard.
You must be smart.
You must have some luck.

I can guarantee that the stupid person (not politically correct) who don't work hard and have bad luck will not be successful. Ask yourself if you have those three things. Not everybody has that, then you should surround yourself with people who have those. But remember those people around you may succeed without you.

Protect Your Data
If someone break in to your home or business and stole a lot of things, you are the victim, aren't you?

So when somebody break into your Internet server and stole information, are you a victim or a criminal?

The answer should be a victim but unreality you will be treated as a criminal. So, the best way to protect sensitive information is to peek them physically in the safe. If someone break in and steal physical item, you are a victim not a criminal.

This is just so wrong. Whether it is not the net or at your house, if someone intentionally break in and steal something, you are a victim. What do you think?

Tesla is Amazing

Dear Reader,

I have seen this phenomenon only a few times in my lifetime. The phenomenon is that every person who buys a Tesla becomes the salesperson for Tesla. They tell people everything about their Tesla and their conversation is always about how great the car is. This is true “word of mouth” marketing.

The first time I can remember people doing this was when SONY released the “Walkman”. Did you know the first Walkman was released in 1979? I was in college. In the computer world, this phenomenon happened when IBM released the IBM PC in 1981. Then APPLE released Macintosh in 1984. This happened again when Compaq released Deskpro 386 in 1989.

The biggest phenomenon, until the release of Tesla, was the release of Apple iPhone in 2007. Everyone who had an iPhone became the salesperson for Apple iPhone - except it was only available through AT&T. However, until Tesla, every product on this list was created with a lot of great marketing. TV, magazine and newspaper advertisements made these phenomena. However, I do not remember any Tesla advertisement.

So, the Tesla case is different from all the other phenomenon. I do not know if I have seen any other products like Tesla in my lifetime. It is so interesting to see all Tesla owners become the evangelists for Tesla. This phenomenon even makes me wonder if I should consider Tesla for my next car. Especially with gas prices going up closer to $4.00 per gallon.
