First of all, let me ask you. When you watch videos on Youtube, do you prefer watching short or long videos? Perhaps, it will depend on the content of the video, right? You might be willing to watch long video if the content is educational, for example. But, mostly you prefer to watch short videos. Especially when you're watching promotional videos. Who wants to watch long videos about product promotion? I think most people don't want to do that. With this fact in mind, it is better for you to create simple and short videos to promote your product or online business.
Here are some reasons why simple and short video promotion will win:
1. People visit Youtube (or other video-sharing websites) for fun
Most people visit Youtube to watch fun videos. Most of them want have fun with this website, not to be sold. They generally don't want to watch your promotion video. That's why you have to make it as short as possible. You should aim at least 2-3 minutes per video. This is enough to give information to your audience as well as introduce your product to them.
2. You can make lots of short videos
Since you need relatively short amount of time to create a short video, you can create lots of short videos for your promotion. Instead of creating several long videos, it is better for you to create lots of short videos so that you can spread your traffic. The more videos you create, the more traffic you will get to your videos. It means that your promotion will reach more people.
3. Lots of short videos will help your search engine traffic
If you link your videos to your website, and you have lots of videos uploaded to video-sharing sites, then you will have a good advantage in the search engine result. Lots of your videos will get indexed by the search engines, and they will help your website to rank better as well. It means that your videos will help you to increase your website traffic.
4. Short and informative videos are more liked
If you want to find information about how to do push up correctly, do you prefer watch short video or long video? You want to find a video that is informative and to the point, right? That's why your short videos will fulfil people's curiosity. Think about creating 2-minute video that tells your viewers about how to do push up correctly and put your video in front of your audience. People will watch your video. You don't need to speak for 10 minutes before actually giving the meat of your information.
5. You'll be more reputable for your no-nonsense information
When you've uploaded many short videos to video-sharing websites, people will start to remember your username, and you will start building good reputation because of your videos. People will recognize your videos as no-nonsense source of information. People will begin to subscribe to you and you'll have loyal following. However, remember that this can only happen if you create valuable short videos.
Those are the reasons why short videos will win. Now, don't forget to insert your promotion in your short videos, preferably in the end of your videos.

You must be aware of Google Now, which was recently released by Google at Google I/O 2012 in San Francisco with Nexus 7 tablet. Google Now is an alternative of “Siri” an iPhone voice recognition app for iDevices and has been appreciated by all the android lovers and the techies. It does all the tasks just like Siri but in a great manner and with a great speed too and the UI is awesome just like Jelly Bean. You can check weather report, sports update, set alarm, send message, call, search, even it has one more great thing that the user can also search for apps, music, contact from his phone; which is pretty cool thing that Google did as now the user can easily search for his contact, or can search for particular song he want to play, he doesn’t need to scroll his playlist of more than 100 songs to find a single track.
The another thing that I liked in Google Now is it doesn’t ask for confirmation like siri, for i.e. if you want to set an alarm for 7 a.m. Google Now straight away sets the alarm for 7 a.m. whereas, in siri it asks for the confirmation to set the alarm. You can check the speed, accuracy and the difference between both in the video below:
Though the Google Now was released for the device running Jelly Bean OS, but the developers ripped off the app from Jelly Bean OS and made it working on Ice Cream Sandwich devices.
Alright! Now let’s come to the installation procedure of Google Now in your ICS devices,
*Note you should have device running Android 4.0+ as the app only work with this version
- Download the app from the link below and copy into your SD Card,
- Now open root explorer and copy the same file to system/app (remember to change the permission of the folder to r/w or read and writable or else you won’t be able to move or paste the file to system/app and can’t change the permission required in next step.)
- After copying the file to the desired destination change the permission to “rw-r--r—”
- Now install the app, after it get installed it says app not installed don’t worry about that
- Click on done
- Reboot your phone and you are done to get your hands in Google Now
For root explorer you can install the “Root Explorer from Google Play for free and if you face any problem do let us know, will try to resolve the issue. Enjoy!

It is a major inconvenience to have your computer power off right when you need it most. You might be working on an important work assignment, or a school paper that is due the next day. Either way, these important tasks can be delayed or lost in the event of an electrical blackout or dangerous power surge. Even if you’re not working on an important assignment, it can interfere with your entertainment; perhaps you are reading the news, playing your favourite computer game, or reading an E-Book. This will aggravate you as well, especially if you are highly engaged. Keeping your computer powered will save you this annoyance, and will also keep your computer safe and sound. This is exactly what a UPS system is for. It allows your computer to feed off of an alternative source of electricity while your power is out, and prevents power surges from reaching your computer.
When searching for the proper UPS system for your devices, you should take into mind several helpful tips and pointers. Do not forget to keep in mind the Volt-Amps needed by your devices, and your budget. Utilize these important details to find the best value for your money.Depending on the power of your computer, you may need higher Volt-Amp ratings for your UPS system. Check the specifications for your PC to ensure that you are shopping for the right UPS.
- Does the UPS systems you are considering have enough outlets for not only battery backup, but for surge protection as well? Your most important devices should be connected to the battery backup- anything that is crucial for your system. Other unnecessary items can be plugged into surge protection only outlets, which still keep them from being damaged during surges.
- You may think that your printer is a good fit for the battery backup outlets- but it is not. Printers use a high amount of electricity, more than you may think. This can drain your UPS battery quickly. Instead, use surge only outlets.
- Run time ratings will tell you how long the UPS system will last during power failure. Some only last long enough for you to shut down your devices; others will allow you to use your computer for several hours, allowing you to continue working. Higher run time ratings will usually cost you more, so try to stay within your budget.
- Battery backup systems can be found in many different places, whether online or in stores. Please ensure that you review customer ratings on any UPS system that you may be considering. Previous customers are your best source for reliable feedback on particular models and brands of UPS systems. They will report any pros and cons honestly, as they have no incentive to lie. This can help you to avoid purchasing a brand with a bad reputation, or a model that is known for a quickly diminished battery life. UPS systems are an absolute pleasure to own, so be sure that you are prepared to do plenty of research to find the perfect high quality battery backup system.
