When it comes to the construction industry, technology has not been always embraced as well as in other industries. The simple reason being, the time taken in completion of a project.

When the project is initiated, there is one technology in place. It takes many months for the plans to be finalized, the details to be ironed out, etc. then comes the building part. The construction of a building alone takes years. So when the plan is initiated there is one technology in play and by the time the building is completed, there is a new set of technologies that have replaced the ones that were there in the beginning.

Digital Technology

Due to this constant change in technology and time-lapse in the project’s execution, this industry has always been slow to adopt any technology. Not to forget the contractors change too from time to time. so the team that works on one floor is not the same as the one that works on the next floor. This made it difficult to bring in any system to be adapted like in other industries.

The smartphone is one of the most used digital technology in this industry today and we can say with confidence that it is here to stay. There are a number of Apps one can download onto their phone and use it to their advantage in many instances.

There are woodwork calculators, measurement charts, and technical details etc, which are generally found in books, available now on your phones. On the tools front, regular saws and cutters are replaced with versatile wood cutting machine that are more precise in cutting. As a result, a lot of time is saved.

Here To Stay

The technological advancements have benefited this industry to a great extent and have made work completion faster. as the builders need not depend on contractors all the time, they are more open to using technology and finalizing many details inside the office itself. This positive reinforcement in this industry is here to stay!

The automotive industry is growing at a fast pace and the competition is not getting any lighter. To succeed in this field one needs to more than just up to date. There are skills and innovation required to stay on top of the game.

One can come across a number of such discussions and updates on 247Spares. If you are wondering what are skills required to succeed in this field, here they are:

Willingness To Adapt

It is easy to get set in one’s ways and refuse to change because we are just used to the way things are and there is not much point or benefit in changing. To become successful in this technology-driven world, an auto mechanic has to come to terms with the fact that his skills are being replaced with technology.

Even with technology in play, car owners will need mechanics to do things for them but it will not be in the traditional ways. Those who embrace this fact and start adapting to new technologies will see their customers’ inflow will either increase or at least stay steady, rather than dwindling.

Technical Knowledge

One may be required to attend various courses and get certified to offer certain services that are technology oriented. It is a known fact that to be an automotive service provider, one has to have the basic license and if you are going to serve one particular brand exclusively, you need to meet the criteria set by that manufacturer.

Similarly, one will have to undertake courses and get certified to be a mechanic who offers those specific services.

Motor Skills

Just because technology is taking over and everything is automated, does not negate the need for motor skills. One should still know how things have to be done manually for those times when technology fails. If the server is down or the vehicle is stuck in the middle of nowhere, one needs to know how to get the car running enough to get it back to the shop.

Many of us struggle with promoting our Instagram accounts whether it is personal or for business purposes. Here are the best 10 ways you can use to make your Instagram photos stand out.

1) Use best photos: We want to stay active on Instagram thinking our followers might want to see frequent posts. But instead of uploading a lot of random pictures, it is best to upload a few good quality and best photos.

2) Use a niche: You can choose to upload photos and videos for a certain niche as travel, photography, cooking instead of uploading random content.  There are so many new tools like the Instagram video downloader that followers use to get your photos and videos, and so it is important to upload good content.

3) Use your unique style: You can upload the photos in your unique style instead of copying someone else. Even if it is simple, followers might like something different than seeing the same style as others.

4) Using Hashtags: The best way of reaching a wide range of followers is using the hashtag correctly. Do not create new and random hashtags; instead, use existing and popular hashtags.

5) Too many Posts: People do not want to see too many posts with the same content, instead schedule your posts in regular intervals.

6) Interact with followers: Your followers not only want to see your new posts but also want you to interact with them. So instead of just uploading new photos or videos, sometimes reply to your followers one to one.

7) Make use of Stories: You can make your profile interesting putting up photos or videos for behind the scene stories.

8) Use multiple images: You might want to tell a story using multiple images in your posts, instead of uploading the images in separate posts.

9) Live session or question and answers: Your followers might want to know more about you, use the live session or question and answer facility on Instagram to interact with your followers.

10) Use Photo editing: Before uploading any photo, make sure you edit it correctly to make it stand out, instead of uploading the raw/original image.…

Es ist zwingend erforderlich, dass man in sozialen Medien präsent ist, weil mehr als 70% der Bevölkerung in Amerika in irgendeiner Weise in sozialen Medien leben.

Wenn Sie nach Expansion suchen, dann sollten Sie dort sein, denn die Reichweite ist weit mehr, als Sie jemals hoffen können, die traditionelle Art und Weise zu erreichen. Der größte Vorteil von Social Media ist, dass Individuen erfahren, wer welches Produkt verfolgt und was sie interessiert. In diesen Medien funktioniert der Peer-Druck.

Aber als Unternehmen, müssen Sie Ihr Geld dorthin, wo Sie hoffen, etwas Gewinn zu machen. Sie müssen also erkennen, dass alle sozialen Medien nicht gut für die Wirtschaft sind. Die besten Medien sind diejenigen, die es Ihnen ermöglichen, mit Ihrem Publikum zu interagieren und sich mit ihnen zu verbinden, um eine persönliche Bindung des Vertrauens und der Zuverlässigkeit aufzubauen. Hier sind ein paar soziale Medien, die unbedingt Ihre Präsenz haben müssen, wenn Sie Ihr Geschäft erweitern möchten.

I was burnt out duh!

It wasn’t long before I realized that dating apps were just not for me! They were too monotonous and I was bored with meeting the same people with the same criteria. I wanted to find the Mr. Right but I knew for sure that he would never come through my Tinder or Occupied status! Funny yet strangely convincing.

Fat the receiving end eh!

I have been the butt of many jokes yet I was persistent. No apps and no virtual love. I decided that I would go meeting people meeting about in real life. So, here is what I did:

Taddaa…I went out!

Of course, I took a lot of time. It was awkward at first but there are no two ways about it. No dating apps mean sorry you have to dress up to go out and about! Which I did and boy, did I enjoy!!

The meeting of the eyes and the smiles!

Sparks can only fly if you are open-minded. So if you are at the musical or a concert or a movie even a coffee shop and you like someone across the table smile and look straight into his/her eyes. Voila!!

Something that you are passionate about!

Anything that you love doing? Check out new places to hook up with new people. If you visit places that you love, chances are high that the person whom you meet there will have similar interests and that means you have a common ground to speak about and then if it works out to hit on each other. Sounds simple eh! It’s simpler when done, believe me!

Okay, so I found my husband at the grocery store. We both were looking to buy cereals on coupons from Couponobox and we realized that we were hoarding on them while trying to calculate the money saved. We laughed at each other and within moments had eased off. Love in the most unlikely of places but yet lovely memories for a lifetime.
