The trend of shopping online is no more new to us. Shopping online is convenient as well as less expensive. There are several online shopping websites available which offer you everything, right from latest smartphones to books.

Mobile marketing is the "Next Big Thing" as more and more smartphones are being made and mobile Web browsing gaining popularity. Companies have already started to market through this channel to utilize their resources and strategies to the maximum. Many marketers will soon experiment this channel as well. Many customers today want to market their products in every way possible. While people book their travel and movie tickets from phone/web, it has become an essential way of marketing for merchants/business owners to promote their products through this channel. According to report from Gartner, worldwide smartphone sales to end users soared to 149 million units in the fourth quarter of 2010. Total smartphone sales in 2011 reached 472 million units and accounted for 31 percent of all mobile devices.

Globalization and increased competition compound the number of new brands. Many companies that produce goods and services for consumers use various strategy and formulas to boost the sales and market shares of brands. Most of the time these strategies click, while at times the company notices that these strategies are irrelevant and have been losing traction with consumer. Often the management of the big existing brands does face a serious dilemma — quite apart from the effects of the current global economic downturn. A common phenomena existing in these big brands that are diminishing their value in the market is 'risk of bankruptcy or major restructuring', 'risk of takeover', 'mismanagement' and some 'major turnovers'.
AOL is known for its online software suite. There was a time when AOL announced it had 34 million subscribers at its peak. It was in the year 2000 AOL and Time Warner merged under the name AOL Time Warner for $160 billion. The merger did not prove fruitful and this resulted in Time Warner going public again in 2009. Revenues have since declined sharply. Since the merger in 2001, the value of AOL has dropped significantly from its $240 billion high. On February 25, 2009, AOL merged AIM Profiles with Bebo. But again the companies were battling with the thought of shutting down or selling Bebo. They managed to wrap this issue successfully but with a huge loss on investment. AOL's financial losses are so bad they're starting to float the idea of selling the company. AOL recently purchased The Huffington Post for $315 million. The fourth quarterly results was disappointing as the profit fell 66 percent to $22.8 million, or 23 cents per share, from last year’s profit of $66.2 million, or 61 cents per share. Revenue, meanwhile, decreased 3.2 percent to $576.8 million.
Kodak, the company that revolutionized photography over a century ago with the world’s first practical film camera is now dealing with bankruptcy. According to Bloomberg, there are serious concerns about Kodak’s solvency as a company. In the year 2011, the company unexpectedly borrowed $160 million in cash. The stock lost nearly a quarter of its value, bringing its decline for the year to a dispiriting 70 percent. It was in 2000s when the concept of films started diminishing, Kodak could failed to get into the race and read the trend. This ceased the production to a great extent. As a result the sales dropped, stocks fell in prices, quarterly losses.
Looks like the CEO of sony is out on a bumpy rid, as the company reports that they are headed for a greater than expected $2.9 billion annual loss. Even sales of Sony Music Entertainment fell by 11.7 percent. While Apple makes billions every quarter, Sony is struggling to make a single dollar due in part to whole product categories such as their Bravia TV and Playstation Console divisions failing to deliver a return on invest.
In the first quarter in the year 2009 AMD suffered a net loss of 416$ million. The loss was worsened by charges related to the spin-off of AMD’s chip manufacturing operations into a new company, Global Foundries. MD’s revenue fell 21 percent year on year to 1.2 billion dollars. Intel’s recent Xeon E7 refresh has left AMD behind.

Patents are ‘Intelligent Bombs,’ which have the capacity to put an entire company out of business, overnight. They are used as weapons for attack and defense rather than as an innovative productivity tool. We saw many a patent war in the recent years between technology giants including the latest Yahoo’s attack on Facebook. As John MacPhail of Baker & McKenzie law firm says, “Patents are being used as an offensive measure, if you don’t have any patents, you don’t have any weapons in your armory.”
Amazon: 448 Patents.
Verizon: 1,110 patents
Apple: 4,649 patents.

As the recession has hit harder worldwide, it is the young career aspirants who are hit badly by the present economy. However, the trends for the young generation workers are less encouraging because of the unemployment rates which have increased rapidly despite the strong job growth in the sectors where young professionals are more likely to find a job. In India, you all may call the young adults as the key agents of the social change, but the fact is that it is the youths who are facing the toughest challenge of the 21st century’s economic development. In our country, a significant number of youngsters are underemployed, unemployed and some are working for long hours without any secured workplace arrangements. So many of youngsters are working hard for a low paying job as it has become difficult to find a job in this tough job market. So, if you look at the modern trends of youngsters related to their work is quite less encouraging. If you look at the survey facts released by the Pew Research Center, most of the facts are very much true in the Indian context as well. Here is a look at the key findings of the Pew survey:
2. Today’s youths are facing more employment problem than their parents: It is absolutely true that; today’s Gen Y workforce is facing more problems when it comes to employment as the economy has become tough to beat. It is said that, even though many youths are employed, it has become difficult for them to save their earnings for their future life. In this case, it must have been better for their parents, as they had some opportunity to save their money for their future when compared to their children.
3.They are taking too much time to be financially independent: With the unemployment tag at their back, many of the young adults are taking more time to be financially independent. Many are in search for a job even after one year of completion of their graduation in their respective fields. It is said that if you are an engineer or a doctor you can find a job easily than any other profession. But in today’s economy, even many of the engineers in India as well as in the global level has been hit by unemployment and there are many examples in the recent years where many of the software professionals are losing their jobs because of recession.
4.Despite being unemployed, some youths have the confidence of getting a good job: Even though some of the youngsters are unemployed, they haven’t lost their confidence of getting a job very soon. Yet, many of the youths are feeling more vulnerable if they lose a job as they feel afraid of not getting a new job. Because of that reason, many of them are sticking into their current job and have thought that it is their career.
5. Some are facing lack of education required for the job: As there is technological advancement everywhere, many of the youths who are not skilled enough technically are facing more problem to find a job. Especially if you see in India, many of the young youths from rural areas are facing the lack of technical skills and because of it they are failing to get good jobs in the job market. Some professions at present are demanding higher studies and this has turned out to be the biggest problem as not everyone has the ability to spend so much money for their studies. This can be another reason why many are going in search of low paid jobs in this tough job market.

There isn't a real wall separating India from the rest of the world and in fact, technology and globalization have brought down the last bricks on this wall of separation. Starbucks and Amazon have made their intentions clear on entering the alluring Indian market. While Starbucks plans on opening its first outlet in the coming summer, Amazon has already started a comparison shopping website in the country. In an op-ed on the New York Times, Akash Kapur writes that the arrival of these international giants signals the latest episode of India's significant process of Americanization.
The new awakening could be felt everywhere – from bookstores where the stacks overflowed with books titled 'India Booms', 'The Indian Renaissance' etc to many global studies suggesting Indian optimism and a new found admiration for the great American thoughts – "globalization, free-market capitalism, multinational companies etc."

What is Sonic List Builder?
If you are new to internet marketing and have not started building a list yet, now is probably a good time to think about doing so. The number 1 regret of successful internet marketers is the lack of building a list in their early days of marketing. Sonic List Builder is a tool that will help you begin building a huge list before you lose out on future "cheap customers". Cheap customers is not a derogatory term, but rather a way to refer to the lack of cost involved to contact this customer again.
As many internet entrepreneurs know and will openly tell you, driving traffic to a website or offer is not an inexpensive thing to do. Often times it can cost hundreds of dollars in advertising to bring a good level of high quality traffic to your offer. If you take the time to integrate methods in which you can acquire the e-mail and contact details of the potential customer entering your website you have that customer for life.
If you take a moment to think about this, it is actually quite astonishing. I personally know people who have e-mail lists in excess of 500,000 customers. Once you acquire a list of this size, even ridiculously tiny, statistically unheard-of low, click through rates have the potential to earn you thousands of dollars with one click of the mouse.
