The Wire In The Blood – Val Mcdermid

The Wire In The Blood - Val Mcdermid
The Wire In The Blood – Val Mcdermid

Across the country, dozens of teenage girls have vanished. Authorities are convinced they’re runaways with just the bad luck of the draw to connect them. It’s the job of criminal profilers Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to look for a pattern. They’ve spent years exploring the psyches of madmen. But sane men kill, too. And when they hide in plain sight, they can be difficult to find…

He’s handsome and talented, rich and famous–a notorious charmer with the power to seduce…and the will to destroy. No one can believe what he’s capable of. No one can imagine what he’s already done. And no one can fathom what he’s about to do next. Until one of Hill’s students is murdered–the first move in a sick and violent game for three players. Now, of all the killers Hill and Jordan have hunted, none has been so ruthless, so terrifyingly clever, and so brilliantly elusive as the killer who’s hunting them…

Worth Dying For – Lee Child

Lee Child - Worth Dying For
Lee Child – Worth Dying For

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Compulsively readable.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Don’t pick up [this] Jack Reacher novel if you don’t have some time on your hands, because Worth Dying For is difficult to put down. . . . Child manages to get an amazing amount of suspense into the novel.”—Associated Press

There’s deadly trouble in the corn county of Nebraska . . . and Jack Reacher walks right into it. First he falls foul of the Duncans, a local clan that has terrified an entire county into submission. But it’s the unsolved, decades-old case of a missing child that Reacher can’t let go.

The Duncans want Reacher gone—and it’s not just past secrets they’re trying to hide. For as dangerous as the Duncans are, they’re just the bottom of a criminal food chain stretching halfway around the world. For Reacher, it would have made much more sense to put some distance between himself and the hard-core trouble that’s bearing down on him. For Reacher, that was also impossible.

“A model of suspenseful storytelling and an outstanding addition to a series that stands in the front rank of modern thrillers.”—The Washington Post

“Still the thinking man’s action hero, supreme butt-kicker and smartest guy in the room.”—The Seattle Times

6 Things you MUST HAVE for a Blogshop/Online business in Singapore

In case you forget, or have known already, I decided to write it down to serve as a reminder for all. Comment on my post if you feel that there are other points to be listed, or other perspectives.

1) List Building –

Staying in touch with your prospects and customers is very important. And since every single person in the world has an email address and contact number, building an list is one of the cheapest, most cost-effective solution for doing that.

So when to start?

Right now! Start building your email list today.

You will need a database of contacts, a network of people so that the word gets out there fast. Without them, there will be no returning customers.

2) Content –

You will need well written content to get more customers coming back and for that, content is King. This should be the focus of the site. If there is no content worth reading or seeing on the site, then people will not bookmark and return to your site.

The “if you build it, they will come” saying works to a point, but people will still want to read and explore to understand your site better. These content can be in the form of writings, posting or graphic posters. Nonetheless, make sure content is never undercut in favor of other aspects of the digital campaign.

3) Generating Traffic –

Generating traffic is THE biggest obstacle online. Some businesses got to be so successful on the internet, while others are not. Their success did not come by luck, but it came by knowing how to market effectively on the internet.

Not to mention, shouting out on Facebook or twitter is another method too. But still, it is more efficient if you can market your blogshop well.

4) Google Ranking –

After learning how to generate traffic, it is necessary to learn how to generate traffic. It is true that for an online business, Google helps to direct traffic to your site.

Google PageRank, which is largely based upon the number and quality of backlinks a webpage has, is an important factor in how well a particular webpage ranks within the Google search results.

These can be googled easily by googling “Google Page ranking”. Click here to check your page ranking

5) Mass Traffic – 

Web traffic is the amount of data sent and received by visitors to a web site. Since the mid-1990s, web traffic has been the largest portion of Internet traffic.

Traffic is one of the most important elements in the success of your website. It won’t matter if you have the best website on the Internet if no one ever sees it!

Yet after learning to generate traffic, checking page ranking online, it is necessary to increase the traffic to such that there will be a massive traffic everyday.

Sales is a number game. If 10% of your visitors are your actual buyers, then more visitors is equivalent to more buyers isn’t it? 10% of 100 << 10% of 1000,000,000. Do the math. 🙂

 6) Referrals

This point is  extremely important. Without referrals, business will wither and die.

It is not the same as building a database as mentioned in point 1. These referrals could be people who bought from you, or people who communicated with you. It is very important to keep them close to you, so that they will return back for more purchases.

All in all always remember, doing up a blogshop or setting up an online business should be fun. It is a way of communication and networking with like-minded people who are also interested in the same product. Except this time around, you are talking to them as a seller and you are able to provide them with a service. How much your online business can provide you depends on how well your service is.

Good luck. ^ ^

The Last Juror – John Grisham

The Last Juror - John Grisham
The Last Juror – John Grisham

In 1970, Willie Traynor came to Clanton, Mississippi, in a Triumph Spitfire and a fog of vague ambitions. Within a year, the twenty-three-year-old found himself the owner of Ford County’s only newspaper, famous for its well-crafted obituaries. While the rest of America was in the grips of turmoil, Clanton lived on the edge of another age—until the brutal murder of a young mother rocked the town and thrust Willie into the center of a storm. Daring to report the true horrors of the crime, Willie made as many friends as enemies in Clanton, and over the next decade he would sometimes wonder how he had gotten there in the first place. But he could never escape the crime that had shattered his innocence or the criminal whose evil had left an indelible stain. Because as the ghosts of the South’s past gather around Willie, as tension swirls around Clanton, men and women who served on a jury nine years ago are starting to die one by one—as a killer exacts the ultimate revenge.

What They Teach You At Harvard Business School – Philip Delves Broughton

 What They Teach You At Harvard Business School - Philip Delves Broughton

What They Teach You At Harvard Business School – Philip Delves Broughton

This is an excellent book about one man’s experience of the MBA program itself, which is very rare to find. Not only does he approach the subject critically and brings it down to earth, but he also magnificently captures some of the real nuts and bolts of having no influence over the classmates you will have – just the school. Noteworthy are also his observations and first hand accounts of the pressures to accept those high-flying post-MBA offers.

The Spartacus War – Barry Strauss

The Spartacus War - Barry Strauss
The Spartacus War – Barry Strauss

The Spartacus War is the extraordinary story of the most famous slave rebellion in the ancient world, the fascinating true story behind a legend that has been the inspiration for novelists, filmmakers, and revolutionaries for 2,000 years. Starting with only seventy-four men, a gladiator named Spartacus incited a rebellion that threatened Rome itself. With his fellow gladiators, Spartacus built an army of 60,000 soldiers and controlled the southern Italian countryside. A charismatic leader, he used religion to win support. An ex-soldier in the Roman army, Spartacus excelled in combat. He defeated nine Roman armies and kept Rome at bay for two years before he was defeated. After his final battle, 6,000 of his followers were captured and crucified along Rome’s main southern highway.

The Spartacus War is the dramatic and factual account of one of history’s great rebellions. Spartacus was beaten by a Roman general, Crassus, who had learned how to defeat an insurgency. But the rebels were partly to blame for their failure. Their army was large and often undisciplined; the many ethnic groups within it frequently quarreled over leadership. No single leader, not even Spartacus, could keep them all in line. And when faced with a choice between escaping to freedom and looting, the rebels chose wealth over liberty, risking an eventual confrontation with Rome’s most powerful forces.

The result of years of research, The Spartacus War is based not only on written documents but also on archaeological evidence, historical reconstruction, and the author’s extensive travels in the Italian countryside that Spartacus once conquered.

Berlin 1942

When Bruno returns home from school one day, he discovers that his belongings are being packed in crates. His father has received a promotion and the family must move from their home to a new house far far away, where there is no one to play with and nothing to do. A tall fence running alongside stretches as far as the eye can see and cuts him off from the strange people he can see in the distance.

But Bruno longs to be an explorer and decides that there must be more to this desolate new place than meets the eye. While exploring his new environment, he meets another boy whose life and circumstances are very different to his own, and their meeting results in a friendship that has devastating consequences.

Message In A Bottle – Nicholas Sparks

Message In A Bottle - Nicholas Sparks
Message In A Bottle – Nicholas Sparks

Thrown to the waves, and to fate, the bottle could have ended up anywhere. Instead, it is found just three weeks after it begins its journey. Theresa Osborne, divorced and the mother of a twelve-year-old son, discovers it during a seaside vacation from her job as a Boston newspaper columnist. Inside is a letter that opens with, “My Dearest Catherine, I miss you my darling, as I always do, but today is particularly hard because the ocean has been singing to me, and the song is that of our life together.” For Garrett, the message is the only way he knows to express his undying love for a woman he has lost. For Theresa, wary of romance since her husband shattered her trust, the message raises questions that intrigue her. Challenged by the mystery, and driven to find Garrett by emotions she does not fully understand, Theresa begins a search that takes her to a sunlit coastal town and an unexpected confrontation. Brought together either by chance or something more powerful, Theresa and Garrett’s lives come together in a tale that resonates with our deepest hopes for finding everlasting love. Shimmering with suspense and emotional intensity, Message in a Bottle takes readers on a hunt for the truth about a man and his memories, and about both the heartbreaking fragility and enormous strength of love. For those who cherished The Notebook and readers waiting to discover the magic of Nicholas Sparks’s storytelling, here is an achingly lovely novel of happenstance, desire, and the choices that matter most.
