Here are the top tips to create and publish a killer article on LinkedIn.
1. Best dates and times: Generally I have found Sunday, Monday and Tuesday morning between 8am-9am is the best times to post. I should note that these times are based on AEST, you may want to test out your own time zone to see what works well for you.
2. Importance of quality content: I touched on this briefly before but the better and more valuable your content the greater impact you will make on your existing and new followers.
3. Preview your content: Before publishing your post always make sure to preview your work. This will allow you to see whether or not your text are aligned with any pictures or videos you have inserted, if heading are properly spaced out, and if your article is properly laid out, etc.
4. Include videos & images: Break up your text with images and videos so that people don’t get information overwhelm when they first visit your blog. Always make it a habit of listing a few tips or provide a how to guide within a section of the blog. Most people will skim through your article, so this is a great way to provide quick rich content.
5. Ask questions: Doing this demonstrates your genuine interest in feedback. It also makes it an interactive opportunity that encourages participation. Simple questions like “do you agree?” or “how have you seen this done?” are a call to action that can start the ball rolling.
6. Check the analytics: LinkedIn gives you great analytics to show you the success of your articles. This gives you a great opportunity to pay attention to which types of articles are getting the most views, comments, and social shares.
Following the same suggestions listed above, below is a screenshot of a blog I wrote on LinkedIn.

Legal issues are sometimes involved in blogging; it is safer to include disclaimers and limitations of liabilities. Avoid outright marketing blog, or you will shy away from your readers.
Before you can help a business grow through search engine optimization, you first have to understand who they are, who their customers are, and their goals.
This is where corners are often cut. Too many people bypass this crucial planning step because keyword research takes time, and why spend the time when you already know what you want to rank for?
Keyword research is the process by which you research popular search terms people type into search engines like Google, and include them strategically in your content so that your content appears higher on a search engine results page (SERP).
While search algorithms are always evolving, keywords remain a fundamental element of the process – and as such, of your search engine optimization efforts. I’m going to share some Best Keyword Research Tools that will help you in tracking your keywords ranking.
And while the more technical elements of SEO require a higher level of expertise, it doesn’t take an expert to locate and target the right keywords for your business. All you need are the right tools, some knowledge of consumer discovery pathways, and time to be able to go through the detail.
Now that you’ve learned how to show up in search results, let’s determine which strategic keywords to target in your website’s content, and how to craft that content to satisfy both users and search engines.
The power of keyword research lies in better understanding your target market and how they are searching for your content, services, or products.
Keyword research provides you with specific search data that can help you answer questions like:
What are people searching for? How many people are searching for it? In what format do they want that information?

Pricing is very competitive on Amazon. Not only does this affect the chances of winning the Buy Box, it is also one of the main contributing factors to a customer’s ultimate decision as to whether they ought to purchase from you or another seller.
The logic should be: if sales are high then the prices get raised, if sales are low then the prices get lowered. Unfortunately, things are not as simple as that.
Amazon’s algorithm is very complex and cutting your margins through price reductions doesn’t always improve your position on Amazon. That is why it is paramount to understand the various differences in pricing and the various pricing strategies.
There are two types of prices on Amazon, that any seller must be familiar with:
Item price – this is the cost of a product only. This is the price customers will see minus shipping costs and any other factors that may affect the total price.
Total price or landed price is the price with everything included – this is what the customer, should they buy, pays. The following are included in the total price:
Shipping and handling charges;
Discounts, rebates, or special sales/promotions you offer/make with respect to purchases;
Business practices, such as any reduction or elimination of shipping charges on an order, or of any other order-related fees and expenses;
Note: If you find your product is in the ‘Other Sellers on Amazon’ section (where you don’t have the Buy Box yourself) you ought to bear in mind Amazon lists products based on product price AND shipping price.
Many sellers choose to undercut their competition, usually by $00.01 or £00.01 in order to earn a better place in the marketplace. Undercutting the competitors is called ‘repricing’ and it can be done via:
Manual Repricing: As a seller, you can choose to reprice yourself. This involves changing the price manually through Amazon Seller Central – or via other sites should you be managing your products this way.
This will only work for sellers with a few products, as it is time consuming, but gives you a clearer understanding of both you and your competitor’s products and pricing.
Repricing tools: To help with the competitive nature of pricing, repricing tools like Xsellco, RepricerExpress, RepriceIt and Appeagle can be used to automatically undercut competitors on the same listing. You can set a minimum price so the system doesn’t go below this selling price otherwise you could sell the product at a loss.
As a listed company of Nasdaq, Paypal is also the world’s leading third-party payment enterprise, covering more than 200 countries and regions around the world, with more than 286 million active payment accounts and supporting transactions in more than 100 currencies around the world.This news means that the global payment giant has officially entered the domestic market.Today, I want to talk about how this news will affect the situation of domestic third-party payment industry.Is there an opportunity for Paypal in China?
In the fourth quarter of 2018, China’s third-party payment is basically an oligopoly of alipay and tencent finance, which together account for more than 90% of the market.In fact, it is not hard to imagine that the core driving force of mobile payment in China comes from e-commerce and social platforms, such as taobao and WeChat Lucky Money, and these platforms have certain exclusivity. Therefore, relying on the advantages of platforms, it is easy to build a moat of its own and compress the space of other third-party payment enterprises.
At present, the market share of mobile payment in the domestic third-party payment market is getting higher and higher, which means the trend of offline development cannot be stopped. However, paypal, which has no mass base, should be more difficult to develop in this field. It can be seen that there is not much room for paypal to survive in China’s domestic third-party payment market under the current situation.
Cross-border payment is the breakthrough?
So where is paypal’s breakthrough in China?Perhaps the answer lies in cross-border payments.In 2018, 20% of paypal’s revenue came from cross-border business, and 20% of cross-border business came from the Chinese market, which shows the importance of the Chinese market in its overall business.
By the end of 2018, cross-border e-commerce had accounted for nearly one-third of total imports and exports.The growth rate has also maintained double-digit growth.In fact, there is another recent event that deserves our attention, which is alibaba’s $2 billion acquisition of netease koala, and alibaba’s integration of cross-border e-commerce, which shows that the giants attach great importance to this area.
It can be seen that the cross-border payment industry should be in a relatively prosperous stage, and the consumption ability of the customer group is relatively stronger.In the field of cross-border payment, paypal undoubtedly has its own advantages. It entered the field of international payment earlier than Chinese companies and has more experience and bigger market.
Paypal is still optimistic about the development of China’s third-party payment market.
