What do you do when you face just about any problem in your life? You probably find a mobile app that solves the issue effortlessly..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com by Joshua Sharp

After all, the year is 2021 and we all rely on our smartphones more than ever. You can use apps for pretty much anything these days, so it’s natural to see so many personal budgeting tools as well. But which ones are the best? It’s a tricky question because average users will rarely ever test dozens of apps one by one. That’s where I come in, so keep reading to see the top 10 budget apps you should try in 2021!

1. Money Manager

Money Manager tops my list of budget apps because it’s so easy and intuitive. The platform has a beautiful user interface where you can simply calculate spending and monitor transactions. Money Manager gives you a clear overview of the budget through simple visualization, while you can also count on payment calendars, reminders, and multiple-language support. Another aspect of Money Manager that I appreciate is that the app — unlike many others — is not packed with ads or hidden fees. …

Due to the global pandemic, most organizations around the world have been forced to implement remote working policies to ensure the health and safety of their employees..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com by Thomas Lanigan

Adjusting to this new normal will require extra care for both managers and employees, since only one in three employees has worked remotely before this unforeseen shift as reported by the Humanity Work study. For managers relying on in-person interactions to work complete projects and tasks on time, learning how to keep the team engaged and working together when miles apart is the biggest challenge that most organizations face today.

Effective communication is one of the keys to successful remote work since it helps you stay on the same page as your teammates and supervisors. Since we are in a unique situation, communication will help in keeping teams cohesive and productive. Adopting remote work can feel overwhelming at first. However, there are certain strategies that you can implement to make the transition as smooth as possible. Here are a few effective tips that will help you improve communication with coworkers during remote working. …

The way we choose to view ourselves and our lives determines the majority of our life experience..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com by Sarah Kaminski

It dictates how we’re going to feel, the mood we will wake up with, our thoughts and reactions, and even our very destiny. If we surround ourselves with negative thoughts, daily events won’t seem quite as positive. If we, on the other hand, choose to try and remain positive — well, that’s a whole new ballgame, isn’t it?

There is, of course, more to it than “just be positive and not negative.” That’s why I will be going into eight powerful mindset shifts you can adopt over the course of 2021. Note how I’m not saying “adopt now so that 2021 can be the best year of your life.” Changing your mindset in the slightest will require a lot of work. You’ll need to keep reminding yourself not to do certain things and to do others instead. It will take time. But, if you want it to stick, you’ll be happy to exchange that time for a better version of yourself down the line. …

To succeed in the digital space, you need to have the right foundation. Think about it much like you would a brick-and-mortar store..

Originally published by Dan Martin on millennialmoderator.com

You would invest some good money setting it up. You would probably hire a designer to create an inviting ambience. Finally, you would pay a lot of attention to what your competitors are doing so that you do it better. Here are some interesting statistics about e-commerce businesses. Reports indicate that there are over 24 million online businesses across the world. The numbers keep on growing every day, as more people scramble for digital space. By 2040, up to 95% of purchases will occur online. Your online store has a huge role to play. …

2020 has been nothing short of a challenge, yet some businesses have found stable footing in the value that they provide to customers..

List created and published on millennialmoderator.com

As American-British investor John Templeton once famously stated- the best opportunities come in times of maximum pessimism. Calming idea but difficult to embrace when the pessimism is at your front door. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic that has ravaged our world, halted entire industries and resulted in millions of deaths (literally and economically), much of the business world has become skeptical and; in reaction, withdrawn certain risk behaviors like innovating and investing.

However, despite the trend, there exist companies that have taken grasp of this uncertain time, buckled down on their operation and found a way to endure, if not grow even more. It’s these companies (both startups and established) that I want to highlight today. If they can do this well today, imagine what they’ll be doing tomorrow. …

It’s no surprise that today, companies need to be marketing on all digital fronts..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com

Social media, Google ads, affiliate placements, and more all play into the funnel that your business uses to gather leads and turn sales. The notion of variety in where people spend their time online is subject to scrutiny. Some sources believe that businesses should only focus on the platforms where their demographic is most active. In contrast, others believe that marketing efforts should be widespread in the case of attracting outliers.

Regardless if you have a product or service, the digital front has an abundance of channels to locate potential customers, but what’s often lacking in the marketers’ wheelhouse of expertise is a comprehensive understanding of how the varying channels all feed into the sales funnel. Where do leads come from? Which channels convert and which ones don’t? Is it possible to track conversions from radio to website? This is the question that Multi-Touch Attribution seeks to answer, and it’s one of the best ways for small businesses to grasp the reigns of their marketing strategy. …

Free file converting tools are plentiful in the online space, but how do you know which ones are the best?

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com

File formats today continue to demand frequent modification- video files turned to MP3 for audio-only playback, MP3 to WAV or AAC conversions for those operating in the audio space, JPGs that need to be PNGs for better image scalability, the list goes on. Searching online for “free video converter” will give you hundreds if not thousands of options to choose from, but today I want to highlight some important points to consider, when deciding which conversion tool to use. In an overview, these points are:

  • 1. Identify the file upload size restrictions (2MB really isn’t that much). …

Every brand should have a video marketing strategy in 2020, but don’t worry if you still haven’t gotten on board with video..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com by Victoria G.

While the idea of using videos in marketing isn’t new, the sheer number of platforms that allow video content is unprecedented. Consumers are bombarded with videos everywhere they go online, which means they are becoming more accustomed to watching a video than reading a long blog post or article. In addition to keeping up with what your competitors are doing, you should create videos to engage viewers. Videos allow you to promote your business in new places that other mediums cannot, such as on a YouTube commercial block. …

Following tradition, Black Friday and leading holidays are times of heavy discount on many types of goods, but perhaps none more-so than home office products..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com

Finding the best deals and discounts around the holidays can seem like an arms race (sometimes it literally is), with virtually every producer and supplier cramming incentives to purchase their goods over competitors. In light of the global pandemic (COVID-19), the battle of home office supply and equipment sales is on steroids. Suppliers are undoubtedly feeling a financial loss due to the difficulties of maintaining revenue throughout 2020, and millions of employees have shifted to work-from-home environments, realizing that their performance and comfort is directly connected to the quality and quantity of at-home equipment (desks, chairs, etc). …

The concept of maintaining a relationship might seem excessive, but it’s important to understand how relationships do (and don’t) work..

Originally published on millennialmoderator.com

Take for example your relationship with your dog (or any pet). Have you ever noticed that a pet will typically show more affection to people that feed it on a regular basis? Simplistic, yes, but the fact is that animals (much like humans) respond to certain actions in certain ways, developing ongoing memories and feelings about individuals based on how they’re treated. Human beings are much more complex and require a bit more depth in understanding, but there are absolutely certain actions and behaviors that can dictate the overall health of your relationship with your partner.

Now, I should say, I’m by no means a weathered relationship expert, which is why I’ll be leaning on several citations to support my claims, as well as the Emi app, which is a relationship advice platform that helps people set reminders to perform relationship-acts on a regular basis. Let’s face it, we’re all very busy, but technology can help. …
