Life of a product manager

Today I leaned about the life of a product Managers. They are one of the top ten careers that are trending right now. It’s a lucrative job with a high-paying salary and exciting responsibilities. PMs also have a lot of visibility within any company, even large, multi-national ones, which can accelerate your career. As a PM you get involved with designers, engineers, marketing teams , financial teams, and even supply chain teams. As a PM you’re responsible for or is heavily involved in product vision, customer interaction, marketing collateral, prioritization and research. You’re also a mediator, resolving conflicts and disputes between different teams. An example that is shared would be when marketing or sales absolutely needs a feature that engineering just doesn’t have capacity for. Responsibilities of a product manager is constantly shifting as each day is different.

How to make money on Snapchat

Today I leaned about how to make money on Snapchat. The more people see your content, the more people you have as potential customers. The more potential customers you have, the more money you can make, and so on. To have a thriving business and make money on Snapchat, you cannot downplay the importance of a well-established audience. If you’ve already done pretty well for yourself with many people checking out what you have to say online, that’s great. Add your contacts and friends,

this is one of the most rudimentary ways you can build an audience on the platform. It follows the basic principle of starting small/starting with what you have. So, look through those contacts.

The chances are that you have more than a hundred of them. Considering that about 46 million people in the United States use Snapchat, you’re likely to have a lot of contacts who use the platform. Add them up. If you’re a beginner and they don’t help you get to your first hundred, they’ll help you come relatively close to it. Promote yourself across multiple social media accounts. Considering that Snapchat is relatively new, the chances are that your other social network pages are older than it. As such, you just might have more followers there.

In that case, what you want to do is to ask them to add you up on Snapchat. It is not particularly hard, but it is crucial if you want to learn how to make money through Snapchat. To get them interested, tease the kind of content you post on Snapchat. Ensure that they know that they can only get it by following you on the platform.

Now, while Snapchat has very impressive amounts of business potential, it is not like LinkedIn, where you are constantly professional. So, don’t forget to be fun and engaging in your promotions. Promote others. This method is a bit dicey, but it still works. You could say it relies on the goodness in the hearts of people. Anyway, a good way to get more people on your list is by promoting others. When you do so, the chances are that they’ll follow you back for it. However, you must not do this excessively. If you do, you’ll end up expending a lot of effort on people who might not return the favor in kind.

Social media and how to get more followers

Today i leaned about social media and how to get more followers. For instagrams you ,reels are fun videos you can share with followers. They have audio, effects, and creative tools. You can share them on your feed and publicly in Explore to reach new audiences. Reels are new territory for brands. Instagram’s beauty partnerships manager, Kristie Dash, stated in a Glossy forum that Reels are still a relatively new way to publish content, and there isn’t one formula for success. However you want to stay on track so you need to keep content unique and trend drive. Identify trends on Instagram and TikTok and put your own spin on it. This increases the chance your Reels will go viral and get in front of new people. Make content relatable and simple. Not every Reel needs to be a production. Lower quality videos can perform the same, if not better, than highly produced Reels. Educate your audience. Find the balance between education and entertainment in your Reels. Lastly, reels should be a huge priority for you right now. It’s prime real estate for your brand to be discovered by new followers.

How to publish a app on google play store

Today I learned about how to publish a app on google play store. For example, if you’re planning to create a cryptocurrency app that would a platform for crypto assets, then you should check the guidelines first. As the blockchain app development is waving high with popularity but there are few restrictions. As Play Store policies quoted, “We don’t allow apps that mine cryptocurrency on devices. We permit apps that remotely manage the mining of cryptocurrency.”

Apart from the crypto apps, you can check content guidelines for smoothly app launching. On the play store you should never develop apps with inappropriate content such as, violence, Hate, Sexual sensitive events and so on. Fantasy Sports app or any Gambling apps should be created under guidelines.

The foremost thing is to avoid using duplicate content or any copyrighted content such as logos, images, or any other item. Play store team review app on the basis of content, so make sure to use original content or permitted content.

Also, you can’t make a clone of any popular app that might be misleading the audience or creating doubt. App owners must tell play store about how they gather user’s data likewise device information, user permission or any other source. Also, test your app against malware and other networking protection. Google play store makes sure about the user’s data security, that’s why apps must build with cryptography license and should permit the use of user’s personal data for only functionality. That’s what I learned about today

Ways to Monetizing your app and make a profit

Today I learned about ways to monetize your app. Whether you’re launching a paid app or you’re looking for a free app monetization strategy.

You can email lists. You might not think of this as a likely first step, but using an email strategy tie-in with your app is a fantastic way to get more engagement from your customers, which in turn leads to more users . People rarely change their email addresses. That makes an email marketing campaign an easy way to make sure users actually see your content and engage with it. Regular emails also keep your brand at the forefront of a customer’s mind, making them more likely to buy from your business. According to Wiselytics, the total life of a Facebook post is only a few hours, while a tweet’s lifespan is just over an hour. Email, on the other hand, has a lifespan of 12 days. The best way to gather those email addresses is to add an email subscription form to your app. Next, a subscribe app screen. An in-app subscription form will give your app a real boost by prompting users to enter their emails, especially if you tempt them with the prospect of some great benefits for email subscribers. And your email strategy can be pretty varied. If you have promotions or deals, send an access code in the email that they can enter inside the app. If you write a regular newsletter or have a blog component on your website, promote those through the email while reminding users they can read all the content you produce on their mobile device. So, whether it’s to remind your users to come back to your app after being away for a while or to try and draw in new users, email lists are marketing gold. That’s what I learned today.

Algorithmic thinking and artificial intelligence

Today I learned about algorithmic thinking and artificial intelligence. Algorithms and data structures are bugbears of the software development world. Traditionally educated developers were probably taught about them in one or two classes and self-taught or bootcamp developers often aren’t exposed to them at all. Even so, for most beginner developers, algorithms and data structures are the sources of a lot of anxiety and imposter syndrome. Thinking algorithmically is a mindshift from how we, as people, usually think. It is more of a systematic way of thinking through problems and solutions in a way that’s similar to how a computer would run. But that’s surprisingly difficult. We all have unconsciously built up shortcuts, assumptions, and rules of thumb that we use to help us solve everyday problems without thinking about them. For instance, take the simple task of sorting 10 numbers. As it stands, we can take a look at them, tell pretty quickly what the order should be, and arrange the numbers correctly. However, we’re not used to breaking our thought process down into its individual steps and translating that to what computers can do. For instance, computers can’t jump to general spots in a dictionary to find a word based on its spelling. A computer has to have very specific instructions on where to start. Another example is looking up a name in a phone book or a word in a dictionary. As humans we generally know, given a name or word, how far into the book we need to start our search – if it begins with A we start near the beginning. If the name/word starts with M, we jump to around the middle of the book and so on. Algorithmic thinking is thinking about how to solve a problem in a systematic way. It’s about,Defining the problem clearly,Breaking the problem down into small, simple parts, Defining the solution for each part of the problem, Implementing the solution and Making it efficient.

Artificial intelligence and careers in it

Today I learned about artificial intelligence. Automation, robotics and the use of sophisticated computer software and programs characterize a career in artificial intelligence (AI). Candidates interested in pursuing jobs in this field require specific education based on foundations of math, technology, logic, and engineering perspectives. Written and verbal communication skills are also important to convey how AI tools and services are effectively employed within industry settings. To acquire these skills, those with an interest in an AI career should investigate the various career choices available within the field. The most successful AI professionals often share common characteristics that enable them to succeed and advance in their careers. Working with artificial intelligence requires an analytical thought process and the ability to solve problems with cost-effective, efficient solutions. It also requires foresight about technological innovations that translate to state-of-the-art programs that allow businesses to remain competitive. Additionally, AI specialists need technical skills to design, maintain and repair technology and software programs. Finally, AI professionals must learn how to translate highly technical information in ways that others can understand in order to carry out their jobs. This requires good communication and the ability to work with colleagues on a team.

App develop and upload guidelines, and smartwatches

Today I learned about smartwatches and how to make other wearables sell. Wearable devices might just be the hottest tech since the iPhone. There are millions of wearable devices in the market today. Wearables present a unique set of challenges when it comes to design. The devices have limitations and present different use cases which means they require a different app design approach. No word has been thrown around in wearable design quite as much as “glanceable.” Glanceability refers to information being designed for short moments of interaction. At the dawn of wearable technology, we were first introduced to the concept through screenless fitness trackers, which rely on lights to explain to the user what’s going on. In addition, context is the backbone of your design and you should use it to provide specific information at a glance. Designing for wearables is designing for context. Smart devices are full of sensors and it’s possible to utilize built-in device sensors to determine user context. For example, be aware when the user is using Geolocation services, and help enhance the user’s experience by making the context-relevant information glanceable. While desktop and mobile apps might consider a user session measured in minutes or even hours, wearable experiences are completely different. They should be as short as possible. If a user interaction takes more than 10 seconds, it’s time to go back to the drawing board and redesign your interface. Minimize interactions and keep interfaces simple by only showing what’s essential for a user to complete a task. For example, when users have to reply to a message using a smartwatch, don’t show a text input form. Offer quick pre-defined responses and provide a voice input option in wearable UI if a longer response is required. I also learned about how to get apps posted on the apple store. They can't contain User-generated content, physical harm, and they must be able to contact you as a creator of the app.

Web and app development and skills required

Today I learned about web and app development. It’s a line of work that expects a lot from you and needs you to stay abreast of every trend and every new technology. Many years ago, with the invention of computers which were a lot bigger than they are now, a lot of people lost their jobs because what they could do in days, the computer did in seconds. Mobile app developing is that you need to learn to stay relevant and this means learning new things and acquiring knowledge on an ongoing basis. Every web and mobile development company will need to hire dedicated developers who can understand the current times and the skills needed. Multiple programming languages is something that most top app developers in ghe USA and every mobile app development company should take into consideration. Companies are looking to hire dedicated developers, that are fluent in Java, Kotlin for Android, and objective-C and Swift for iOS apps. The ability to use all of these programming languages will set you apart as an app developer. Apart from learning programming languages for both Android and iOS apps, developing your skills in both platforms will definitely get you spotted. As a developer, your ability to diversify across different platforms and provide the same level of expertise is what every web and mobile development company is looking for and it will eventually be a skill every developer needs to possess. It definitely saves a lot of time and also helps you make much more money than you would have originally done. Every mobile app development company seeks to hire dedicated developers who are ready to bridge the gap between Android and iOS apps.

Music career sources and how to be a successful producer

Today I leaned about many different music career sources such as Soundbetter, MusicGateway, and Upwork. I also learned that you need to listen to what’s selling so you can be successful. Listen to a lot of music on TV, in ads, and in trailers. Watch YouTube, streaming services, and the most popular shows, ads, and promos. Try to work out what connects the music to the images. You need to know what’s out there and what genres are trending. Is there a particular sound or effect that is really popular? Don’t copy others or make soundalikes, though. After having listened to a lot of music, you have to find your unique voice, and express ourselves using some of those tools you’ve collected listening to all those TV shows and ads. In addition strip down the music you like in a show or ad and analyze it. Make notes as you go and jot down details about the instrumentation, tempo, etc. Even quick notes on your phone or a piece of paper can help. Using these notes, you can create your own take on a popular genre. Lastly, you need to know the market , picture who may use your music, or where it might be used and why. This can be really useful because you need to keep in the purpose of your track.

Earning money and Monetizing music while promoting your music

Today I leaned how to monetize and make money from your music and how to promote your music. If you love making music, you'll soon want to know how to make money as a musician. Selling your music doesn’t come with any guarantees. It’s important that you stream your work on Spotify and Apple Music, the two largest, most globally available services. Other popular streaming services include Google Play, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music which cater to electronic music producers and fans. Playing live is one of the most profitable ways for musicians to make money. While the internet has made it possible to live stream music performances, there’s nothing that quite matches seeing one of your favorite artists perform in person. Playing live is not only a good way to generate income, but also one of the best ways to build an audience. Gig fans always win out over social media fans in terms of how valuable they are to your music career, since they’ve proven themselves willing to pay money to watch live music. Find good local venues to play if you want to build an audience of real live music fans. One way of doing this is through gig-booking apps and websites. Build relationships with local venues as this can help build a following and local venues can promote your music ultimately making your fan base bigger. It will also be easy for local fans or fans from all over to catch your event because they will know a common place you perform.

Selling art online and how to stary

Today I learned about selling art. Having your art in a boardroom, waiting room, or hotel lobby where people are coming and going is a good way to gain exposure to new audiences. These people may not attend a local gallery opening, but while they are stuck in a meeting or waiting for a client, your piece could catch their eye.

Companies benefit from having fine art as a talking piece and showcase of their support for the arts. Businesses thrive and enrich their communities when they make connections with the local art market. Before you approach a prospective corporate client, make sure your website is up to date and that your inventory is current. Businesses often need to see extensive details about pieces, including size, availability, and cost breakdowns for originals and prints. The art hanging in a pediatrician’s office is likely pretty different than what you’ll find at a local boutique or clothing store. Lastly, when strategizing prospective customers, consider what aesthetic your art is well suited for and determine from there which companies you will approach.

How to make money on social media

Today I learned how you can make money online. I learned that to make money with affiliate marketing, you need to join high paying affiliate programs so that you can add affiliate links to your Instagram and make a commission on the sales you generate. Join affiliate networks like Shareasale, Clickbank, Awin, and Impact. No matter how many followers you have, you can insert a clickable link in your Instagram bio. Instagram followers pay close attention to Instagram posts, so using captions to tell about affiliate marketing links is a great way to grab the attention. However, all links in Instagram posts are non-clickable, so adding a URL isn’t the best idea as readers have to copy the link manually from your text. You can also sponsor posts on Instagram, but most companies want to establish long-term relationships with influencers, so they seek out brand ambassadors who can promote a company in a positive light on a regular basis. For example, Jay Alvarrez is a lifestyle blogger who posts photos and videos on his Instagram and YouTube channels. With a highly-engaged community of over 6 million loyal followers, brands are eager to build a long-term partnership with him.

Starting a webinar to promote your products and business

Today I learned about webinars and how they can help promote your business and products. It doesn’t make much sense to expect all of your customers to book a flight to your conference every time you launch a new product. However, asking them for an hour of their time online to showcase your latest creation is a lot more manageable. Product webinars are a chance for you to get everyone from your leads to your brand evangelists in one place. Discussing with your viewers and answering each question they ask can reassure current customers that they’re in good hands while also pushing leads down the pipeline towards purchase. Hosting a webinar around a topic puts the presenter on a virtual pedestal. While some of those registrants choose to attend for support, many of your attendees are tuning in to hear what you have to say as a thought leader. Unlike social media marketing or banner ads, webinars hold a different power over your audience: the power of scarcity. Social media posts are here to stay, and advertisements are hard to get away from. Live webinars promise a value above traditional marketing tactics, and that value is a much more unique one.

Stock options and their key takeaways

Today I learned about stock options and how they are a contract giving the buyer the right to buy , or sell the underlying asset at a specific price on or before a certain date. People use options for income, to speculate, and to hedge risk. Options are known as derivatives because they derive their value from an underlying asset.A stock option contract typically represents 100 shares of the underlying stock, but options may be written on any sort of underlying asset from bonds to currencies to commodities. Options are powerful because they can enhance an individual’s portfolio. They do this through added income, protection, and even leverage. Lastly, options can also generate recurring income.

Wed. Jul. 20, 2022

Trading foreign exchange and Real estate investment trust

Today I learned about FOREX and foreign exchange trading .Forex trading is similar to the currency exchange you may do while traveling abroad: A trader buys one currency and sells another, and the exchange rate constantly fluctuates based on supply and demand. Currencies are traded in the foreign exchange market, and a vast majority of trade activity in the forex market occurs between institutional traders, such as people who work for banks, fund managers and multinational corporations. I also learned about Real estate investment trust(REIT’s). They are a company that owns, and in most cases operates, income-producing real estate. REITs own many types of commercial real estate, including office and apartment buildings, warehouses, hospitals, shopping centers, hotels and commercial forests. Some REITs engage in financing real estate. For a company to get classified as a REIT a company must have the bulk of its assets and income connected to real estate investment and must distribute at least 90 percent of its taxable income to shareholders annually in the form of dividends. Lastly I learned that FOREX plays a huge role in financial transactions b/c these markets allow firms making transactions in foreign currencies to convert the currencies or deposits they have into the currencies or deposits they want.

Intro to cryptocurrency and Bitcoin

Today I learned about cryptocurrency and bitcoin. I learned that a blockchain is a system in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency are maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network. Blockchain is important b/c it provide secure transactions, reduce compliance costs, and speed up data transfer processing. Bitcoin is a type of digital currency that you can buy, sell and exchange directly, without an intermediary like a bank. I learned how to read stock charts and how to tell if the market prices for the stock has gone down or up.

Mon. Jul. 18, 2022

Digital selling and intro to stock market

Today I learned about selling products online. Selling in an existing marketplaces such as eBay and Etsy are usually the easiest starting option, especially when you have limited starting resources and only a small quantity of products. These websites have the huge advantage of an existing customer base, but your product will also be listed alongside many other items so your product needs to have differentiating characteristics. Selling on your own website has many advantages such as , Totally customizable interface that can match your brand's image, Competition is less visible; less likely to lose customers to competing products. There are some cons such as their is much more upfront work to create the website, buy the domain name, set up hosting, and Getting people to find your website is your responsibility. I also learned about shipping out products. Once you have created a product, you need to prepare for sending it out when it sells. Many websites focused on selling product also offer shipping options built-in, and sometimes at a discount over the typical shipping rates, but inevitably you will need to know how to ship out your products. Then lastly I had a brief intro to stocks and I learned that they are a type of investment that represents an ownership share in a company. Investors buy stocks that they think will go up in value over time.

Digital art creation/selling and clothing

Today I leaned about digital art and selling it for a profit. Buyers of a digital image would typically print the image themselves or use it online as a electronic installation. There is no expense to you when selling digital art, but it also can limit your profit potential since customers will only pay so much for it, and transmitting digital art can be prone to copyright fraud. When creating a digital print, you will always want to save your file as a lossless image, and send this to your buyer. This will allow for no copyright issues and it will make it easier for the customer to access. I also learned a little about online clothing and Wearables which are anything electronic that is meant to be worn as clothing, jewelry or a clothing accessory.

Lastly I learned that you can get 3D printed objects in wax, sandstone, porcelain, and even precious metals like gold and silver.

Thu. Jul. 14, 2022

Robotic products and software

Today I learnt about Robotic products. I leaned how to setup Raspberry Pi and how you can set up LEDs with it and power things. I also leaned about selling robotic hardware to make a profit. I also learned about currents and how AC(alternating currents) such as wall plugs are alternating currents because they periodically reverse direction and change its magnitude continuously with time. Then there’s DC( Direct current) such as batteries which is one-directional flow of electric charge. I also watched tutorials on setting up Arduino and how to set it up.

Wed. Jul. 13, 2022

Laser cutting Modeling and software

Today I leaned more about laser cutting. I learned that before you start modeling in software, try to draw and cut out the design that you plan to make on a piece of paper or card-stock and glue it together. That way you can get a feel for the shapes that you want to make, where you want to cut and the size of everything once assembled. Pre planning and drawing everything out helps you also choose in advance which laser cutting service you intent to use

. For example, if you plan to cut via Ponoko then your model should not have anything filled in and use different color outlines for the areas that should be cut or engraved, and the files should be saved as an Adobe Illustrator AI, EPS, Inkscape SVG or AutoCAD DXF file. You want to make sure you use the correct softwares for the specifics things you intend on doing. I also leaned about different softwares such as AutoCad and Inkscape. AutoCad has been used to design everything from toys to airplanes and it works for both 3D and 2D drawings. Inkscape is a free vector drawing software. In Inkscape, you draw with a series of lines and curves and then print it out by cutting along those lines and curves. Ink space is used for many cool creations we see today such as logos for brands, designs, diagrams and web graphics.

3d printing combing bodies and laser cutting intro

Today I finished 3d printing and I learned and watched tutorials on combing 2 bodies. Then I started on laser cutting. I learned that Laser Cutters are great tools offering the possibility to create many different things. From simple boxes to engraving detailed graphics into wood or building complex three-dimensional objects. A laser cutter is a computer controlled machine that uses a laser beam to precisely cut or engrave material. A laser is basically just highly focused, highly amplified light. The laser beam causes the material to locally burn, melt or vaporize. In a CO2 laser cutter machine, the laser beam is created in a tube filled with CO2 gas. Next, with the help of mirrors and lenses, the laser beam is directed to the laser head and focused on the material surface. Electronically controlled motors move the laser head to cut or engrave the desired shape into the material of the workpiece. The shape is defined by an input file which can be a vector or raster image. Laser cutting can be used for Cutting, Engraving and Marking.

3d printing tutorials and prepping for mistakes

Today I learned more 3d printing. I watched videos about 3d printing softwares and services. Also watched 3d printing tutorials. I learned It is important to plan and account for periodic failed prints that result in lost-time and the cost of wasted printing consumables. You don’t want to be unprepared for any mistakes in printing. All in all today I mainly watched tutorials on creating things with a 3d printer.

Selling items online and 3D printing

Today I Lenard about selling items online. I leaned about 3d printed products. I watched lots of videos demonstrating how to 3D print and watched tutorials using 3D printing software. In the reading portions of 3D printing I learned that you can pretty much sell anything that can be printed as long it is quality. You don’t want to sell cheap thin items as you want people to love the product and not give you the benefit of the doubt because it was 3D printed. You want people to not even notice. Investing in your own 3D printer is wise after you have made some sales in your initial 3d printed items. Buying a 3d printer opens up many door for business as you can run a Commercial 3D printing service. You can 3d print items for businesses and individuals who don’t have a 3D. You can also make prototypes and work with businesses in fields of architecture, design, engineering and construction. In conclusion, 3d printing and selling products online opens up various opportunities for running a at home business.

Creating product/ appealing to investors

Today I learned about Lean business models. They maximize profit while minimizing waste. For Example when Toyota was first starting off they had only enough parts for the amount of cars they were making on that day. That’s a Lean model , using only what you need. I also learned about MVP. That is releasing a new product or concept that is used to validate customers needs and wants before fully developing and producing the product full time. In addition I learned that you need to get comfortable with investors of your company, find out what they like, get to know them , and seek money from people that invest in your field of the type of business you are going to run. You need to factor in all kinds of unexpected cost and underrated cost

Also, Don’t be cheap b/c people won’t want to work for you . Cheap toilet paper and furniture will run employees away but also don’t get most expensive things

Lastly, Everyone in your business matters all workers are equally important.

How to become an Entrepreneur and be successful.

Today at Techie youth I was completing the first sections of the business portion and it opened my eyes to lots of things. An entrepreneur is a person who organizes and operates a business taking on high financial risks. I also learned that in order to have a strong business you need smart, and strong people around you. You need a good support system. I also understand that every idea won't make you successful as every idea isn't really good. I also understand to sell your idea to investors and customers you need to know how to talk and persuade people. You need to speak clearly with a projecting voice and you need to keep them invested in your ideas. Lastly, I learned in order to run and manage a successful business you need to hire good employees that respect you and your business and have good personalities. Employees with poor personalities and adequate can make business hard and slow.
