The level of poverty in India has been a drop from 22% in 2012 to 16% in 2019 even after the essential growth in population.

Introduction to the Digital Revolution of 2019

Digital Revolution is all regarding developing for better tomorrow. This change can have an influential impact in different ways on different societies, economies and above all humanity.

Not only that, but digitalization also modified the way information scattered across different sectors of the globe. Giving grounds for businesses to move forward beyond the national markets to other markets, thereby leading international markets, enhancing the interconnection of the world.

One of the signs of these shifting flows is the digital revolution in India that has been catching grip since smartphones and 4G streaming have grown commonplace within urban areas including many rural areas too. There are more than 200 million smartphone users and 550 million internet subscribers live in India in 2019. This trend is being advanced by important rural-to-urban movement as poor villagers explore opportunities in India’s advanced cities.

From 2014 the Indian government has taken active participation in bringing digitalization by various measures. Such an example is demonetization, it has gained global attention has been associated with short-term job losses and economic slowdown. However, it also shows compliance for government leadership to drive India’s digital transformation.

Looking into the factors of the digital revolution from 2014 India has grown to some other level of grounds, our government of India has taken various Digital Initiatives like e- payment, digital literacy and many more.

Digital initiatives of government

India has moved forward, in all sincerity, to growing an essential engine of the world economy, we are on the edge of a transformative opportunity for the country to gain global leadership. The country is experiencing a digital revolution that is triggering transformative developments in areas like e-payments, digital literacy, financial inclusion, geographic mapping, rural development, much more. So, let us discuss all the factors which have been updated from 2014 to 2019.

  • GI Cloud Program

This program is also known Meghraj, this is initiated by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology. The program intends to make a multi-level, national cloud-sharing foundation giving affordable, secure and safe data storage for all. The cloud erases financial boundaries and generates growth by services and product. Giving affordable options to own the expensive hardware needed for data storage. It is a robust catalyst for new- businesses, start-ups and non-profit organizations.

This initiative is more for the poor and underprivileged. Aims to render digital service to more people who usually not be ready to enter the digital world. Reaching digital services can play a tremendous role in overcoming poverty.

  • Market Changes

Government strategy is not the only driving constituent of the digital revolution in India. Changes in consumer refinements and function lie at the centre of the movement. India now makes up the biggest YouTube audience by country globally. Besides, Indians’ immense streaming habits win them another amount one ranking for monthly data usage, with smartphone users cooking through an average of 8.48 gigabytes per month.

Already many are expecting new market openings by India’s increasing streaming project. Global powerhouses Google, Facebook, Amazon and Netflix are all reportedly competing for a post in this emerging industry.

  • Online labour

Now, this is something not everyone knows about it. This very graceful initiative of the Indian government. Online Labour Index (OLI) to state that India forms 24 % of the online labour market share (as of 2017), generating employment openings for software developers, data entry operators, online sales, and creative professionals.

  • E-commerce

There are various job openings in the logistics sector because of the e-commerce industry is expanding with new services on the supplier view. There is …

1. App Store Optimization

App Store Optimization (ASO) requires many of the same factors that go into great SEO tactics. Things like keywords, titles, and descriptions play a role in the app store listings, so leveraging the right tool to understand these variables can really set your app for a path to a top-tier ranking.

Optimizing the keyword tags in the App or Google Play store can really benefit how your app is found. The keyword field allows you to associate your app with certain terms. The key here is to not repeat or use too many variations of the same word which could be portrayed as spam. A good tip is to conduct SEO type test to figure out the best keyword tags to use. You should ask yourself questions like “Which words describe my app?” and “Which words are my competitors using?” Once you get a feel for what words work best for you, be sure to be creative in your choices. Being unique could possibly help you drive traffic your competitors aren’t getting.

Titles are also an important aspect to take into consideration. Much like a title page for SEO purposes, the app name serves as a relevancy signal that the app store algorithms can pull search results from. Many companies include keywords into their main title to help pull their app to the top of search results within their category. A common mistake is to not include the actual name of the app into the title. The overall goal is to have a strong presence as a brand, therefore people need to know your name and not just what your app does.

When you have everything above figured out, it’s now time to write the description for your app. This should not be a painful task. The key here is to keep it short and sweet. You have to keep in mind that when someone is reading this they are not going to spend a lot of time looking at the description on their phone. Leave plenty of white space so that it is pleasing to the readers eyes and less cumbersome. Bullet points or asterisks are commonly used to list benefits of which your app brings to the end user. Sentences should be broken up with a mixture of long and short (5 words or less) sentences to keep the reader engaged. If you want to learn more, we have previously written extensively on the importance of good keywords in the app store.

2. Social Media Integration

Social media integration in an application has been emerging in popularity among many app developers. Giving users the ability to invite others, share gameplay, and view leader boards is a popular and useful aspect for increasing virality. Essentially it is free marketing for your app. When a user shares their recent high score or fitness goal on their social media pages they are then spreading the word of the app to their friends. This increases the number of views and in turn raises awareness of your application. All of which happens without you lifting a finger. Another side effect from this is that it implements a type of competitive atmosphere amongst friends to outdo the other persons high score or have a longer run tracked.

3. Press Kit

Having a press kit readily available is a proactive move to help expedite your marketing efforts farther down the line. Once you have an established microsite for you application you may get a couple of reviews, but to really market your newly developed app, you need to be able to provide quality material that other people can utilize. If people want to write about you, they may not always have the time to contact you to receive useful materials for them to use.

Materials that should be included in your press kit include high-quality icon of your app along with screenshots of the app in use. These will help expedite those bloggers or journalist that wish to write about your app to have official high quality visuals that can be used in their articles or blogs.

Another essential part of your press kit should be all of your relevant press …

Gordon MacDonald tells a story of young man (Tom) who has nothing much of note going for him; sloppy, disorganized, a coaster. This young guy seems slow to learn and is generally disinterested in the flow of life that most others his age find a breeze. His prospects are slim indeed.

Does anyone see a prospective, well-known and highly successful church leader here?

What is revealed in this story is the ability for five normal people, including two couples (one older, one younger), to get in beside Tom and patiently model to him a way of living; a good way of living.

He learns patience and a passion for people and 'the lost' with couple number one – the younger couple. Not that they 'teach' him per se. He uses (or even abuses) lunch invitations for a free feed – the couple's response? – they receive him with open arms. They don't push him away.

What is he learning from them? What is he learning about life? How is this changing his perspective on how he wants to live his life?

The older couple model (a pastor's family) model what family life should be about. They help him with things like his laundry, and invite him to dinner every other Sunday. He observes a well-adjusted family and likes what he sees.

What is he learning from them? What is he learning about life? How is this changing his perspective on how he wants to live his life?

The fifth person is an associate pastor (AP) of a church and Tom lives with him. Now, what he learns from the AP is hard. It's putting the toilet seat down; putting another roll of toilet paper on the dispenser; taking the garbage out; doing the dishes straight away; staying tidy and organized etc.

There are many heated discussions but the mid-30s AP patiently persists. And he simply models how to keep a house.

What is he learning from him? What is he learning about life? How is this changing his perspective on how he wants to live his life?

He just observes each of these models like most human beings do. And he's a sponge. What he sees he judges good or bad, right or wrong … he asks, 'Is that how I want to be?'

And what is he learning through all this role modeling? Love, patience, kindness, acceptance, values โ€‹โ€‹…? And probably a lot more.

With young people there is often very little seen potential. If they're low on confidence it is even more apparent.

What the young people of this society need – or any society for that matter – is sufficient and adequate adult support via role modeling of good values โ€‹โ€‹of love, patience and acceptance, because they will learn.

Tom, by the way, was or is Gordon MacDonald himself – Thomas Gordon MacDonald. No hoper teen turned highly successful adult and leader.

What role model are you? What is the young person in your life seeing in you, that they either want to replicate or incinerate?

The "Best Buy" awards are based on a number of factors. We physically test the machines to determine overall quality and product performance. In addition, we consider customer feedback, third party reviews, company reputation and product warranty. In particular, it is important to look at the company reputation and the product warranty.

When you purchase an elliptical trainer, you are not just buying a machine, but also the company that stands behind it. Whether you have a question about the elliptical operation, or you need service, you want to purchase from a company that stands behind their equipment.

When selecting an elliptical trainer, you also want to consider the extent of the warranty. An elliptical trainer warranty can be very revealing. Obviously, limited warranties suggest a machine that is not built to last, while extensive warranties imply a quality built machine designed for vigorous use.

2007 "Best Buy" Recommendations:

Under $ 1,000 – Spirit ZE110

Spirit Fitness ZE110 – I usually am reluctant to recommend any elliptical trainer under $ 1,000. At this price range, you are buying a budget machine, built with budget components. There are certain aspects of the ZE110 I can criticize, but for the price, it is a reasonable value. If you are looking for an inexpensive elliptical trainer for medium use, this model is worth considering.

$ 1,000 – $ 1,500

Smooth Fitness CE 3.2 – The one feature that immediately stands out on the Smooth CE 3.2 is the lifetime warranty. That generally is a clue about the quality of the machine. If the components cannot withstand rigorous use the company would go out of business replacing parts. The CE 3.2 is equipped with a heavy flywheel giving it a very smooth elliptical motion. Other features include an impressive console, a wide selection of challenging programs and wireless heart rate control. Smooth sells only direct and online, which results in a degree of savings to the consumer.

$ 1,500 – $ 2,000

Sole Fitness E55 – Sole's marketing strategy is to build quality machines with quality components at reasonable prices, and the Sole E55 proves they are very successful with this value proposition. Besides the smooth and quiet elliptical motion, I really appreciated the 20 "stride. The motion does not feel as confined as so many other treadmills under $ 1,500. It comes with a 2-year service warranty. There is only one other manufacturer I am familiar With that offers similar coverage and their ellipticals start at over $ 3,000. This machine is comparable to higher end models.

$ 2,000 – $ 3,000

Life Fitness X3 / X3i & Precor 5.17i – There are a number of excellent choices in this category, but the 2 companies that stand out are, Life Fitness and Precor. Since they both offer excellent products, we decided the "Best Buy" winner is a tie between the Life Fitness X3 / X3i and the Precor EFX 5.17i. Both are quality machines that are very durable and extremely quiet. You can really tell the difference in their solid and stable performance. They are commercial quality at a residential price. It should be noted, the Precor EFX 5.17i offers only a lower body workout.

$ 3,000 +

Precor EFX 5.23 – Most industry professionals agree the Precor EFX 5.23 is the top elliptical trainer in the market. Precor ellipticals are a favorite with top health clubs. The patented CrossRamp technology is their premium feature. It allows you to adjust the incline of the ramp as with a treadmill. By changing the incline, you can workout different muscles. It adds a whole new dimension to elliptical training. While testing a model at a fitness store, a woman walked by and said, "I own one and luv it." If money is no object, and you can live without the upper body workout, then the EFX 5.23 is an excellent choice.

One question new copywriters often ask is, “what are the best swipe file ads?”

It’s a good question, too — especially since swiping the wrong ads can often do you far more harm than good.

My opinion on this is, I don’t really “swipe” anymore these days.

But that doesn’t mean I don’t have a list of favorite ads to study for ideas, ad structures (very important), and inspiration.

So here goes — my top 10 ads (in no particular order) copywriters should study:

* Scott Haines’s “Trump University” sales letter

* Gary Halbert’s “Betty’s Diet Book” print ad

* Gary Bencivenga’s “Interviews That Win Jobs” print ad

* Eugene Schwartz’s “The TV Owner’s Guide” print ad

* John Carlton’s “Combat JKD” print ad

* Jim Rutz’s “Integrated Health Solutions” sales letter

* Mel Martin’s “What Never To Eat On An Airplane” sales letter

* Gary Halbert’s The “Crime Connection” sales letter

* Gary Halbert’s “The Josh Abraham Letter” sales letter

* Gary Bencivenga’s “Lies Lies Lies” magalog

Now, something to note:

In a couple of these cases, I really don’t know how much money the ad pulled. Usually, you’re better off only studying ads that earned the big bucks. But either way, studying these ads has been extremely profitable for my business.

Fortunately, you can find some of them online free, too. (Just “Google” them.)

But in some of these cases, you will may have to pay a little money to get the rest of them (or ask the copywriters who wrote them).

And that’s as it SHOULD be.

You’ll get way more value out of copywriting instruction and tools you have to hunt, sweat and pay for than if you can just print and stuff them in a folder free.

What if you were told you could lose weight fast, tone, sculpt, feel healthier and stronger within 90 days or less? What if the xp 90 workout system was the secret to success? Would you question this latest breakthrough secret and toss it up to another fad or diet?

Weight loss and toning our bodies is something we all struggle with, especially if we want to get in shape, get healthy and look good!

Maybe you have tried to keep up with all the hype on the latest fitness craze and fitness secrets of the stars, but never succeeded? If you are still searching for a breakthrough on extreme fitness, check this out!

ARE YOU SKINNY FAT?

Reasons why you don’t succeed in your weight loss journey

• Skinny fat – this is the latest fitness update, most people exercise, but never develop, tone or lose the body fat, so we may seem to lose weight, but we are still fat.

• Motivation – most people give up, lose interest and do not continue on any diet, or exercise routine.

• Diet Pills & Drinks – many try the latest diet pill or drink on the market, it’s fast and will help you lose weight quick. Wrong, this is a myth, most diet pills and drinks have been found to be unhealthy. In the long-run, quick diet pills will destroy your metabolism, heart and keep you fat.

Breakthrough Tips to Xtreme Fitness

The xp 90 workout system is the latest craze, but why does this work? Here are the tips that will bring you fitness success for life.

• Muscle Confusion – the latest breakthrough on true fitness and losing weight. This is a unique combination of extreme muscle burn on different parts of your body. It revolves around never doing the same routine or the same reps. Your muscles become confused and you will sculpt your body like never before and then lose the weight.

• Motivation – motivation is key to losing weight and developing and toning your body. It has been proven that most people need motivation and personal training. Fitness success is 95% motivation. Motivation is usually through personal training, which is expensive or through the help and support of family or friends. If we are lacking in motivation, we usually fail at weight loss.

• Fat Loss Diet Plan – diet is another important aspect of fat loss and developing our muscles. Most diets are not geared toward your fitness goals. If you do not follow the correct diet plan then your fitness goals will not be accomplished.

The Last of Us is tremendous, to say the least. It is an unforgettable masterpiece of a game, with a truly beautiful setting, one that displays hopelessness in a way unlike any other. The world is full of plant overgrowth, detailed walls and streets, and amazing character design. The presentation is captivating. It grabs you by the arms and pulls you to the edge of your seat.

Naughty Dog fails to disappoint with undoubtedly the best game they have made, and that’s saying a lot. If Uncharted 2 set the bar, The Last of Us jumped six feet over. The Last of Us was a fire that burns and will burn as long as there is one little spark. The Last of Us had high expectations that all started with Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, but in that time, we gamers have had the chance to see Naughty Dog evolve and grow. And we are very happy they did.

This game is story-telling at its finest with Neil Drukkman and Bruce Stratley taking control of this project. The less you know about this game, the better. If I were you, I wouldn’t even watch the trailers. In short, a man is hired to deliver a package to the Fireflies, a group of survivors trying to change the world. The package, though, is a girl. Joel and Ellie must take a trip across the country in order for Ellie to be delivered to the Fireflies.That is all I can say about the story.

Gameplay, last but not least, is also amazing. It can be difficult and even frustrating at times, but that’s the beauty of it. It all pays off. You, as the player, want to go through hell just to see a conversation between Joel and Ellie. The shooting mechanics are great, as is the hide-n-seek and cat-n-mouse tactics. Health is difficult to come by, as you must get the materials needed to craft a health kit. Everything is in real-time, though, so you can’t be in the midst of bullets entering your body to pause the action and use your health kit. You must find cover or be unseen by foes. Now the enemies include the terrifying clickers (blind but great hearing infected), runners (fast but deaf infected), humans, and more. To sum up, The Last of Us is a must-buy. I would recommend it to anyone that I know.

Where is the best place to wear my pedometer? This is a question that is asked often. There has been considerable discussion about this topic, but until a study was performed to find the answer to this question, the best place to wear the pedometer was a guess.

The latest pedometers are called “pocket pedometers” and the manufacturers claim that you can drop them in your pants pocket and they will perform very well. They can also be worn on your hip, around your neck, and in your shirt pocket.

A group of researchers designed an experiment to determine the accuracy of these new “pocket” pedometers. The article from the experiment stated, “The purpose of this investigation was to examine the validity of step counts measured with the Omron HJ-112 pedometer and to assess the effect of pedometer placement.”

The results of the experiment were published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise: April 2009 – Volume 41 – Issue 4 – pp 805-809. The article is entitled Validity of the Omron HJ-112 Pedometer during Treadmill Walking.

The study used ninety-two subjects (44 males and 48 females); 71 with a varying body mass index [BMI].

The placement of the pedometer made a difference as follows:

  • Hip mounting produced the smallest random error (1.2%)
  • Shirt pocket was next (1.7%)
  • Hanging around the neck (2.2%)
  • In the pants pocket (5.8%).

The conclusion of the study was “The Omron HJ-112 pedometer validly assesses steps in different BMI groups during constant- and variable-speed walking; other than that in the pants pocket, placement of the pedometer has little effect on validity.”

So next time you get ready to head out on your walk, remember that your pedometer will record the most accurate results if you have it attached to your waist band or your belt on your hip. The study indicated that a “pocket” pedometer did not measure most accurately in your pocket.

For more information about best pedometers, read the resource information at the end of this article.
