An entrepreneurs guide to online success

Optimize your Online Experience - OEO

There's a relatively savvy new way to look at the internet experience so in-thoughtful that it's not even in wiki yet. I Google searched the term "Online Experience Optimization" and I read that THAT term was being used. The fundamentals of my idea of the term wildly differs due to a broader analysis and realization.

"The Big Idea" led on by the Constellation Research© website caters to advertisers and consumers yet to the consumers for the advertisers. There can be online music experience optimization or online graphical artist experience optimization etc.. There is a broader sense to the "Big Idea" that has even more fundamental values. My idea deals with online optimization for stereotypes of people featuring functionality for trades (career skills). By stereotypical I mean in the sense that Online Experience Optimization can be applied to many mediums for example office, artist, engineers, musicians and so forth.

On this Hub I will focus on:

Entrepreneurial Online Experience Optimization - (EOEO)


Today I will teach you how to optimize your money making experience online based on my EOEO concept. Please know that I made this acronym and term up. Before anything you have set yourself up for your venture online and your computer has to perform at a fair speed. There's many reasons as to why your computer might run slow or cause your online experience to be time consuming. This guide is aimed at showing you the basics and new techniques for making your experience online productive beginning with the computer then internet connection. This guide has four Chapters. If you have a great internet speed then skip to Chapter 2. Chapters 3 & 4 will be continuing on a additional Hub labeled part 2.

Chapters

1. Computer Performance

2. Internet performance

3. Productivity

4. Social Marketing


Chapter 1: Computer Performance - Setting up your OS and Internet speed

If your computer is slow then the following (what could be issues) has to be addressed. This will assure you less time consumption. Here's the top reasons your computer is running slow. Be sure to run disk clean-up and clean your disk once a week for optimal performance. If your not familiar with the process than visit here for Windows based PCs >>>> How to clean my disk


1. Installed Toolbars & Search Engines

Some Toolbars have a live connection to other websites and in some cases advertise live streaming ads which affect your internet connection. It is best to not install any toolbars for optimal performance. If it's the buttons you desire on your toolbar then don't worry. You can add buttons to your internet browser or to your desktop theme. (We discuss this further in Chapter 2)

2. Widgets

Widgets can be a distraction if your not to hip to them. Some widget servers are good if you have a great speed of at least 10mb through your service provider. Otherwise they drain your CPU usage and slows your computer down.

3. Bad Wiring

The wiring on your internet box can be defective or even outside on the poles. Your service provider can have a professional come out and test that theory.

4. Playing Media

With multiple devices on your network or WiFi drainage of your computer speed occurs when playing media. If two computers are playing videos or music then the speed will slower depending on internet service speed. 2-4 megabytes by today's standard is common and fair as long as there's only one device is streaming. 7-15 MB is perfect for optimal performance but not exactly necessary. It all depends on your situation and how you can adapt.

5. WiFi sharing

If you don't have a password on your Wifi or Wi-Band then anyone can get on your network, start streaming media and slow you down. Also there can just be too many people on your connection. Administering a password assures you know who is on your network.

6. Updates

Not updating your computer can be a conflicting issue. Pop ups can be distracting and need to be addressed asap. There are options in your OS to make these updates automatically. Search on the web for articles or videos that show you how if you don't understand how to.

7. Malware or Trojans

If your getting popups about a virus of some sort then it has to be addressed. It slows your computer down which reflects on your productivity and patience. There is an option for free protection for AVG Free if you don't have protection.

8. Ads

Some media on the webpage your on might contain flash media and/or ads that plug in to your browsers performance. You have the option to leave that site or disable the ad usually by clicking on an X somewhere in the corner.

If you feel like your computer is still slow then you might need an upgrade. Generally 4MB is good per device. Ask you ISP what your options are.

9. Unseen additional programs running

When you start up your computer so does a bunch of processes or/and applications. These pr0grams are idle on your dock and can be disable permanently or for the time being. Go to where your time is on the task bar at the bottom to the right and right click to see what programs re presently running. Right click and exit any program that is not your anti-virus program.


Chapter 2: Entrepreneurial Online Experience Optimization EOEO


What does that even mean? It means that if your gonna make money online then you are going to do it in an effective, steady and an innovative way. Your computer speed may be fair or great but there's things your internet browser can do that makes any task more convenient and productive. I have only experimented with the open source Firefox Internet browser so if you have any other browser than you'll have to learn about its add-ons and features.

Here's a some of things to do to set up your internet browser for optimal performance.

Firefox add-ons

Firefox Auto-FIll

If your just started off with making money online then you'll be signing up to a bunch of websites. Firefox has an add-on that applies to your browser called auto-fill. Auto-fill is similar to an application in which you fill information and it saves in your browsers toolbar in the form of an icon. When you go to sign up to a website, you just hit the icon (pencil on Firefox) and it'll fill in your information in the boxes automatically. It's a fast feature that saves time and money. Auto-fill like all over add-ons on Firefox are free. Get this Firefox add on here @ Auto-Fill

Firefox Auto-Copy

You will be building links and doing plenty of copying and pasting. With this featured option anything that you highlight automatically gets copied unto your clipboard. Dowload this option for your Mozilla Firefox @ Auto-Copy


Toolbar settings - internet browser implemented, NOT INSTALLED

Whenever you visit a website you'll notice their small representative icon to the left of the address bar. You can drag that icon unto your toolbar and create a shortcut. This is such a convenience. After a while it might get cluttered so here's a tip: right click on the icon and go to properties. There you have the option to rename the shortcut. Delete the whole name and press enter and you will see that the icon stands alone. Familiarize yourself with your icons and you''ll make more space as you delete the wording aside the icon.

UPDATE:

Extended Desktop

An extended desktop is when you have two or more screens. This can be done with HDMI or VGA peripheral cords. Projectors are also a possibility.

The advantage of having multiple screens is great for digital multitasking. Webmasters and entrepreneurs alike can use it to have a main frame for editing and using other screens for reference. Picture more screens for inventory management, reference data, email information, additional webmaster tools option and so forth.

If you have these ports on your computer then it is possible to have multiple screens. Most PCs only have one port which is use so what get the job done unless you have an HDMI port. Most 21 century laptops have RGB/VGA ports and/or HMDI.

This is the end of Chapter 2. Bookmark this Hub to be updated as I always update. Chapters 3 & 4 will be posted soon.

Below are reference pictures for VGA and HDMI cords and peripherals.
