Get on the Express for Discount Shopping Know How to Find Discounts, Get Coupons, and Save Money Shopping Online and Offline Want to save money while shopping? Of course you do! Why? Because nobody likes to find their wallet or purse flat-out empty from all the joy or necessity of shopping or suffer the consequences of endlessly swiping the plastic to the max on whatever they can get their hands on, then waiting for the wrath of the credit card bill to drop on their doorstep only to be filled with buyer´s remorse and now swimming in debt and hanging on the mercy of creditors. Finding bargains and deals may seem obvious - head to Google and click ´´Search´´, or go through the stack of mail and newspapers, hoping to grab some coupons - but there is far more to the process than people realize. Also, still think getting the best bang for your buck is exclusive at the big major retailers? Think again! That´s the perception they create for you to shop there in the first place. When stuff is perceived to be on sale, you just have to buy it, right? But are they really on sale? Because there are other secret underground mom-and-pop-like shops where less people know about that offer - and there are better outrageous deals. In order to save money shopping, you need to do what others don´t do and look where others don´t look...because whenever there is word of a gold mine, it will be over before anybody else has the chance to pick up a shovel. You need to approach discount shopping and bargain hunting from a different angle, like pro shoppers do. When you take the Discount Shopping Express, your destination includes: How to find discounts online and offline with advanced shopping strategies How to get coupons the way nobody else is doing and very few know about How to determine the best place to b 1.

Ein Beitrag aus der Maiausgabe der brand eins zum Schwerpunkt ´´Kreativer Sektor´´. Bei Google knallt man Ideen an die Wand wie Spaghettis - was hängenbleibt, ist gut... Google ist für seine Arbeitsatmosphäre des kreativen Chaos bekannt. Aber kann ein Unternehmen dieser Größe seinen kreativen Prozess zum Mittelpunkt seines Geschäfts machen? Oder ist ungezügeltes Brainstorming ein Luxus, den die nächste Krise hinwegfegen wird? Um diese strahlende und höchst profitable Sonne wabert ein relativ chaotisches Universum kleinerer Dienste: raffinierte bis halbgare Ideen für Textverarbeitung, Maschinen-Übersetzung, Webmail, Kalender, Fotoalben, Blogs, kostenloser drahtloser Internetzugang in einigen Städten sowie neuerdings der Vorstoß in die Welt der Offline-Anzeigen in Printmedien, Radio und Fernsehen. Die Firma kommt Außenstehenden wie ein unberechenbarer Schwarm vor, der heute hier auffliegt und morgen dort landet, während ständig Dollarscheine vom Himmel auf ihn fallen. Wie wichtig ist das Chaos für das gute Geschäft? 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Anna Doubek, Michael Bideller. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/brnd/070504/bk_brnd_070504_sample.mp3.

What do Google, Snapchat, Tinder, Amazon, and Uber have in common, besides soaring market share? They´re platforms - a new business model that has quietly become the only game in town, creating vast fortunes for its founders while dominating everyone´s daily life. A platform, by definition, creates value by facilitating an exchange between two or more interdependent groups. So, rather than making things, they simply connect people. The Internet today is awash in platforms - Facebook is responsible for nearly 25 percent of total Web visits, and the Google platform crash in 2013 took about 40 percent of Internet traffic with it. Representing the 10 most trafficked sites in the US, platforms are also prominent over the globe; in China, they hold the top eight spots in web traffic rankings. The advent of mobile computing and its ubiquitous connectivity have forever altered how we interact with each other, melding the digital and physical worlds and blurring distinctions between ´´offline´´ and ´´online.´´ These platform giants are expanding their influence from the digital world to the whole economy. Yet, few people truly grasp the radical structural shifts of the last 10 years. In Modern Monopolies, Alex Moazed and Nicholas L. Johnson tell the definitive story of what has changed, what it means for businesses today, and how managers, entrepreneurs, and business owners can adapt and thrive in this new era.
