got scurvy Whole Foods and Amazon would you like to know why Amazon is so successful it may be surprising to know that not too long ago Whole Foods was struggling while it very quickly became one of the biggest grocery store chains in the country the biggest and health and organic food a few years ago Whole Foods was in trouble that is until one of the biggest companies in the world came along and helped it out well a lot of people thought Amazon buying Whole Foods was a bit of a strange partnership the internet Giants knew exactly what they were doing while Amazon has started to venture out into the real world with their amazon go stores Whole Foods gave Amazon a real taste of a brick-and-mortar company since the Amazon buyout Whole Foods has seen quite a few changes with their brand Whole Foods in elaborate practical joke thicket we the not only has Amazon given them a much-needed boost but the stores themselves are seeing quite a few changes merging Whole Foods with Amazon Prime was the first big change as Whole Foods now offers special sales for Prime members as well as selling Amazon’s popular devices such as the echo in stores as well as offering free delivery for Prime members also Amazon has put its delivery lockers and many whole food stores so that you can have your parcel delivered safely and collect it from Whole Foods at your convenience with more changes on the horizon the future is looking bright for this partnership because the customer is all that matters they support farmers while Whole Foods has become a big international company they still focus a lot of their time and money on the local aspect as much as they have a great range of food Whole Foods are still passionate about buying and sourcing fresh foods and ingredients from local farmers and companies this in itself helps the local economy as well as keeping local farms and ranches in business it also is a big step for sustainable foods and products not just content with buying a lot of food from local suppliers Whole Foods also offers loans and financial help to local farmers these loans are low-interest and designed to help local farmers that may need a little boost with their business helping out the little guy and keeping things local is a great personal approach to food especially for such a big company not only our Whole Foods content with helping out local farmers but they also want to help out the planet too in recent years Whole Foods bought the largest wind energy credits in North America in fact they bought so many that they offset all of the electricity used in the US and Canadian stores with all those noble causes it’s no wonder that they sometimes charge higher prices for their products to a jaw of speciality honey that cost 17 $9.99 the Creator is showered with a dishwasher I slept in a dishwasher box washer Whole Foods may well be on its way to becoming a true world brand but things started out very differently for them and it was almost completely destroyed back in the late 1970s John Mackey and Renae Lawson opened up their first organic grocery store in Austin Texas wanting to provide good healthy food to the people of Austin Mackey and Lawson went all out to make this happen and that included living in their first store only being able to get a house that was zoned for commercial use Mackey and Lawson used the first floor to sell their products the second floor for a cafe and they lived on the third floor as this was a property zoned for business and not for residential use there were no basic facilities such as showers or baths because of that the two co-founders had to improvise and use the dishwasher hose every time they wanted to wash where’s your bathroom that’s what bathroom what room bathroom what what as the store started to become popular Mackey and Lawson merged with another grocery store and officially became Whole Foods however while that should have been a joyous occasion a year after opening the store got hit with the worst flood in the history of Austin while the store looked to be finished for good it was actually the local residents that came to Whole Foods rescue as Whole Foods had already built quite a fan base of loyal customers those customers got involved and helped clean the store and within a month Whole Foods was back and open for business crisis averted the CEO makes $1 per year well I’m the boss head honcho you know while most people would think that the main goal of creating a successful company and brand is to make money Whole Foods co-founder and CEO John Mackey might disagree with you obviously making money is one of if not the most important aspects of any business but Mackey feels that he has made enough money in his life and therefore wants to work for the joy of working Mackey has taken quite a few controversial and surprising stances in his career but one of the big stances was to forego a salary not only does Mackey not get a big salary but he also doesn’t get any bonuses or even have any stock options either having a boss that only comes into the office because he wants to is one big reason why Whole Foods is so often ranked as one of the best employers to work for as well as the staff perks that we have already mentioned on our list of facts about Whole Foods the store also operates an open policy when it comes to salaries that means that anyone can know the salary of any other employee from the top of the company to the bottom the wages are an open book having no secrets between staff seems to go a long way toward work-related happiness you keep a secret no sir I can’t 365 I company even took you a whole year while there are many great things about organic food store Whole Foods one of the downsides that most people have with them is their prices while Whole Foods do a lot of good things support local farmers bring us great and sustainable produce etc their pricing can sometimes be so high that people can’t actually afford to shop there but are they way more expensive than regular eggs way more I’ll take a dozen in order to overcome this problem and make Whole Foods more accessible for everyone Whole Foods decided to expand their brand and add 365 stores to their range the idea of the 365 stores was to bring cheaper products while appealing to the Millennial and younger demographic the stores were set to be slightly smaller than a regular Whole Foods store and according to CEO John Mackey the 365 brand was the future of Whole Foods however while the intention may well have been good these 365 stores didn’t really happen with a big plan to bring stores everywhere only a few actually opened up once Amazon bought Whole Foods the plan for 365 stores were halted it is reported that the 365 stores that did open will remain open but no other stores are planned although the idea may have been a good one it was all a bit of a Miss and miss step for Whole Foods look everyone makes mistakes English only grow country while there are many plus points to working for Whole Foods we didn’t even mention that they pay higher than most grocery stores or equivalent companies however they do have their bad sides when it comes to employee relations one big issue that Whole Foods had was an English only policy for staff the policy stated that members of staff must communicate in English when they are in the presence of a customer as well as with each other if they are on the clock or discussing work related topics this policy came to light when two workers in a New Mexico store complained about it the workers were suspended for unacceptable workplace behavior Whole Foods did make a statement and said that their suspension had nothing to do with them not speaking English que causa but many felt that the timing was a huge coincidence as well the English only policy was revised fairly quickly after the incident Whole Foods has also hit the headlines with an overcharging scandal in which they have admitted to overestimating and expanding prices and weights of certain products no wonder they became known as whole paycheck it also might be interesting to know that Whole Foods actually sold cheese that was made by prisoners presently burned but everything at Whole Foods is supposed to be cage free cheese makers haystack Mountain had an agreement with the Colorado Corrections Institute in which prisoners were milking goats for cheese for a monthly salary of around 300 to 400 dollars the cheese was then sold in places like Whole Foods Whole Foods has come out recently and said that it would stop buying products made by prison labor it just goes to show that even companies that come from a good social place can make mistakes and missteps walking around beer while you shop we know that grocery shopping can be a chore sometimes you have a long list of things to get and worse still the store is packed with people isn’t there any way to make grocery shopping more tolerable than actually Whole Foods thinks there is and that is to shop with a nice cold beer a whole food store in Austin has a full liquor license which means you can drink while you shop I’m gonna get a beer – are you serious what else yeah not only does that particular Whole Foods have two bars one of which is a wine bar but they also have buckets of beer placed around the store so you can grab a can and shop at your leisure while shopping with a beer sounds like a great idea it doesn’t totally fit in with the Whole Foods image of being super health-conscious so it may not be too surprising to know that in a whole food store yes in Texas again they actually used to sell cigarettes admittedly this was back in the 1980s but even so to have Whole Foods selling possibly the unhealthiest product around is quite a head scratcher while the sales of this item were supposedly quite good the item was pulled from the store as they didn’t think it was quite a Whole Foods product Peter I think we should see other people the biggest Whole Foods is in in Canada with many Whole Foods stores popping up all over the country as well as parts of the world its biggest store is in Austin Texas it’s not really surprising as this is the Whole Foods flagship store as well as being the headquarters for the entire company the store itself is over 80,000 square feet and as well as offering perks like bars and the walk around beer the Whole Foods flagship store also has a gelato bar and a chocolatier stand not only that but there is an ice skating rink on the roof for anyone that wishes to have a little fun before they shop you know my little cuddle baby let’s watch figure skating and I’m really starting to get into that while Whole Foods headquarters and flagship store may well be the biggest their New York branch actually has something special about it too as it’s the biggest grocery store of any kind in the entire city a few years ago two men actually robbed the New York Whole Foods and made it out with over sixty thousand dollars that should keep them in organic food and gluten-free bread for a day or two before the big one hits spend some more time with us

Faith & Co. | Christian Work (Steve Bell)

(gentle music) – We were raised in
this dualistic theology that the highest and best
calling for any believer was to go into full-time
Christian service. If you really wanted to serve God, you became a missionary
or a pastor or a teacher, did something in full-time
Christian service. And I never felt called to that, and my parents were
actually quite disappointed because they thought of all of my siblings that I would be the preacher. But I felt called into business. I love the idea of being in business. (gentle music)

How To Get A High Salary Marketing Job in 2020 (Guaranteed)

All right. So today we are going to talk
about how you can get a high salary marketing job. Guaran-damn-teed! All right, so think
about this for a second. Higher salary to me means over a
healthy six figures, over 100,000 over 200,000 over $300,000 a year,
sometimes even up to $500,000 plus. This is a high
salary marketing job. So there’s a couple of things that
you can do to, to really stand out. When I think about the jobs I’ve
interviewed for in the past where a high salary was offered to me. And I’ll share a
couple of stories here. The stories will really show you
kind of what people value and how it can guarantee how this
can be guaranteed for you. Cause I think if I can do it,
I think anybody can do it. One of the job offers I got. Was a base salary of about $250,000
or so, plus a million in bonuses. I remember interviewing for this
company and you know, they sat me down with the CEO. They sat me down with the chief
operating officer as well. And then basically I had to do the
dog and pony show for about two days. I basically went through
interviews for two days. Literally, I had to go to, at a fly
over to them and, and do all these interviews. And when they’re talking to me,
they’re looking for someone that had the experience
in a specific niche. Right? So in this case, it was
related to education. And I had a background in online
education that gave me a leg up because I had a track
record of success as well. And I’ve managed people. They’re looking at that like
does this person have experience? Is this the person who the
right person for the job? So even though you think experience
might not be that important, when it comes to more senior role, when
it comes to high stakes kind of situation, you are going
to need experience there. The other thing is they want people
that are going to bring forth solutions. They don’t just want someone that
says, I see a lot of stuff that’s wrong with the world. They want someone that’s actually
going to take accountability. Like sure, they see an issue,
they’re gonna bring up a potential solution and they’re
going to own that. They’re going to be
accountable for that. They want people that are also
really good at recruiting too. So you might think. You’re really good a individual
contributor, but when it comes to getting paid a healthy six figures,
I’m talking about making 200, 300 grand plus you are going to have to
be a really good recruiter as well. Bonus points if you’re a thought
leader, that actually helps you a little bit too, because that’s
going to make it a little easier for you when it comes to when it
comes to recruiting, because think about it this way. When you’re making that amount
of money, ultimately what you’re looking for is you just need to be
able to cover your living expenses. If you have a family, you show you
need to cover the kids, you need to cover the wife and everything, but
you really don’t need that much money to survive. When you think about this, it’s
like, Oh, okay, cover all, all you need, and then the
rest is all gravy. So if you’re making that amount
of money, let’s, let’s assume that your spouse is working as well. You’re good. You’re golden, right? When I look at people that we’re
recruiting, I do often look at: do they think about culture? Do they think about recruiting? Are they also good at what they do? But not only that. Are they good at
listening to people too? Are they good at not being
the best person in the room? Are they good at being humble too? Right? Do they fit in with
our core values? Like these things are all important
when it comes to getting a high paying marketing job. Now, I’ll take you
to another story. When I was, I’m going to work at
a online education company called Treehouse. I got grilled. I got grilled by, I got grilled
by the CEO and I was actually in competition with a
bunch of other CMOs. For the job and the CEO wanted
to know that if I understood his company or not, did I really
do research on his company? Did I have good ideas already
for how I would grow the company? And I had to talk about those
ideas, like what am I going to do for the first 90 days,
first 180 days or so. I think the only reason I beat
out the other CMOs who had more experience than me in this scenario
was because I came with a more dynamic package, meaning I
knew how to manage people. I knew how to do SEO because
originally the role was for SEO, but eventually because he saw what
he saw, it became a much bigger role where I was leading marketing. I knew how to do paid media, I
knew how to do email marketing. I knew people in this space, so I
was able to cobble a team together too. And so we’re able
to make that happen. But. It was because I was
a lot more dynamic. And I, I, what I would say here is,
if you want a high paying marketing job, think about how you
can be a Swiss army knife. Sometimes. Like there’s, there’s a time and a
place for specialists, but when you want a high pay marketing job,
you’ve gotta be kind of dynamic, right? So you’ve got to be very, in order
to become dynamic, you have to be very humble. You have to be very hungry and
you have to be very smart, right? Smart. Not just IQ, but also You have to be studying what
the best people are doing. Study them on Facebook,
study them on Twitter. Go to these conferences, talk
to people, network, right? That’s how you get better
and better and better. You have to keep staying hungry. That’s how you stay ahead of the
curve and then you learn and you build on that work because
you’re always out there. You’re learning, you’re
trying to get better. I get out there teaching too. That’s how you become stronger. That’s how you build leverage
around your, your your personal brand so you get any job you want. Any marketing job you want. When I think about Dave Gearhart,
he was the CMO or not CMO, the VP of marketing at drift and
drift’s growing very quickly. He was able to work, work with
drift, help drift, and he was able to build his personal brand
over the years as well. now he’s the COO over at, privy. He’s able to make that happen
because he had a strong brand, had a lot of good ideas. He was a very dynamic marketer. He connected well with people, and
then people liked him for that. Right? Ryan Bonicci. Another good example, he’s at G2. He used to work at HubSpot. Then he transitioned
over to G2, but. It’s because of the depth of
knowledge, his relationships, and because he’s so dynamic, he was
able to get a very healthy job, working at, at G2. Now, I’ll give you a final example. When I was doing work
for a t-shirt company. I was freelancing, I was basically
like Upwork and then this guy, he selected me to work with him and I
was getting paid, you know, I think maybe 30, 40, $50 an hour
or something like that. And I was doing good work and
I kept bringing new ideas. I kept pushing it. You gotta be hungry, right? I mentioned earlier, I wasn’t just
satisfied with doing the work. I was like, Hey, what about this? What about this? What about this? Can we try this? Can we try this? Can we try this? Right? I just kept bringing in all these
new ideas to the point where he’s just like, dude, can you just come
work for me full time and like, let’s just do that because I need
someone to actually implement all this. Like I can’t do it. I’m too busy for it. Even a couple months ago, he hit me
up, actually texted me a couple of weeks ago, about a couple months
ago, he was like, I’m still upset that you didn’t come work for me. I’m in Philadelphia. And I’m just like, yeah, man,
t-shirts just aren’t my thing. But that was a high offer. It was like 5% profit sharing. It was high six figures, but. It was because again, it comes
back to the the the baseline. Am I hungry? Am I going to continue to learn
and then am I going to continue to teach? And then because I’m learning, I’m
building relationships with other people because I’m learning. I’m bringing amazing ideas to the
table because I’m doing all these things. Then I get offered to high salary. It doesn’t work the other way. You don’t just get a high salary. It doesn’t work like that. The fact that you’re
watching this right now. Means that, look,
you’re hungry enough. I’m just challenging you. Just continue to stay hungry
because if you don’t, someone else is going to go somewhere
else hungrier than you. It’s going to come by and they’re
going to take that job that you’ve been looking for and you can make
to 200, 300, 400, $500,000 a year, U S or wherever you live, you’re
going to make a lot of money because they see you
as indispensable. You are the learner. You bring the ideas, not only that
you’re executing on them, you’re recruiting, you’re taking
work off their plate. You’re not just, you know. The regular employee that they’re
going to hire that’s going to take orders. Every single leader out there is
not, ideally, they’re not looking for order takers, especially
when they’re hiring the first few people. They don’t want order takers like
maybe when the company’s a lot bigger order takers are fine,
but order takers eventually. Like if it’s a smaller
organization, they take away energy. They don’t let your a
players do their best work. That’s why you don’t want, you
don’t, ideally, you don’t want to work with them, right? All that to say, this is how you
get a high salary guaranteed, and if you can’t get what I mean,
you can go to our careers page. I mean, we’re always looking
to hire people, single and if you can
prove yourself to be amazing, we’re, we’re always willing to

loan or something like that, we’re had to borrow money from friends
and family to afford really good people. They will do it because it’s that
important to grow their business. All right, so let me know what

Automatic Split End Trimmer… Does it work?!

– Today, I’ll be testing and reviewing the split end trimmer. This bad boy was not cheap. I think it was around $145. So this right here, this
is the Split-Ender Pro 2 and this is the fourth inch trim, so quarter of an inch trim. The Split-Ender Pro is
specifically designed to only trim the very end of the hair strand, which can only enter the blades. It trims from one eighth of
an inch of the ends alone by using the one eighth trim and the one fourth inch by using the one fourth trim setting. So the Split-Ender Pro 2 comes with only the quarter inch trim. It’s already inside,
so it doesn’t come out. And they say don’t try to take it out ’cause you can break it. It does give you instructions
of how to prep the hair and how to use it. This looks very intimidating because it’s literally cutting the hair. And some people were saying
that it cut chunks of hair. So that kind of worries me. But we’re gonna try to
work with hair underneath just in case something goes wrong. I don’t want the top of
the hair to get damaged, you know what I mean, so we can hide bottom
of the hair. (laughs) All right, let’s do this. And I did charge it
overnight and the day before, so it is wireless or cordless,
whatever you wanna call it, So you choose which
way the arrow is going. And then in the back you have a lock, which is this little paddle right here. You have to fully unlock it. And this is where the hair is going to go. And then the blades are right inside. And then this is the chamber
where your split ends collect, right here or just your hair. Because I don’t know
how smart this thing is to only grab the split
ends, you know what I mean? So I think it’s just literally
gonna trim your hair. I don’t know. We’ll see. So I’m just gonna do several sections and I wanna see how much
hair it’s going to trim off because I can see how much hair
comes out into the chamber. So it says you gotta start with really small, thin section of hair and then spread the thin hair. You kind of have to make
sure it’s laying flat and then place it into
this part right here, which is the hair plate. Okay. Make sure it’s nice and flat. And then I’m gonna choose the
arrow, and they say choose the arrow that’s pointing
down towards, not hair, towards the floor. That’s what they say. So we’re gonna choose this arrow. I can’t really see. It’s kinda hard to see. It’s only going to activate
once you bring this handle up. All right, I don’t know. I can’t do this. I think I need your help with this. – [Andrey] Okay, here I
am coming to the rescue. – Is that flat? – [Andrey] Yes. – Well, I don’t wanna like– – [Andrey] Go ahead. – Cut my hair. And then it says gently squeeze the hair plate pressing
handle, this right here, until it activates. And then it says slowly comb
the hair of the splitter and pro all the way to the bottom. Use a slow even motion just like you would with a flat iron or hair brush and repeat three times per section. Okay. Are we ready? – [Andrey] Ready? – Ready? (motor buzzes) – Okay. – [Andrey] That’s just the motor. – I know, it’s scary. I am, okay. – [Andrey] Let’s go for it. – No, I’m scared. (motor buzzes) – [Andrey] Got some hairs. – It looks thinner, you guys. My heart is racing right now. So there’s definitely hair in the chamber and it looks like it cut
pretty evenly, somewhat evenly. And I do see some split ends, yo. I see two split ends right now. (motor buzzes) I don’t know if I wanna go three times. – [Andrey] You don’t have to. – I’m not gonna go three times, you guys. All right, let’s do some more hair. Make sure we move this
section out of the way. Make sure it’s not too thick. And you have to grab thin sections. If it starts to feel like
it’s pulling your hair, this tool right here, then that means either you have too much
hair or you have tangles in your hair. And they do say this works
best on straight or wavy hair. So if you have super curly hair, you might wanna straighten it first as much as you can and
then go in and do this. So let’s make sure arrows going down, yup. (motor buzzes) This noise is scary. It’s so loud and it sounds intimidating. We’re getting a lot more hair in here. (motor buzzes) Cool, cool, cool. (laughs) And I’m just doing two passes per section ’cause I don’t wanna do more. (motor buzzes) It’s definitely hair in there. (motor buzzes) To do this yourself, it’s kind of hard. It’s so bulky. (motor buzzes) I feel like it’s making my hair
shorter in a lot of places. I’m looking at the hairs in here. Some of them are shorter,
some of them are longer, But the hair is also falling. Oh, there’s a little
piece of hair right here. That’s the longest. This is like a good, I would
say, inch that got cut off, but it’s not a lot of
them, it’s just one so far. Andrey – Yeah, let’s see what’s in the chamber Yeah, let’s see what’s
in the chamber, you guys. All right, so I’m pretty much, I don’t wanna do any more hair. (laughs) I don’t wanna cut any more hair And I wanna take out the chamber because there seems like
quite a bit of hair in here, so I wanna take it out. I have this little black envelope that we’re gonna place the hair on since my hair is blonde, that
way we can see something. Let’s do it. – [Milana] All right, so
the Chamber’s quite easy. You just basically pick it up like this. Wow, that’s quite a bit of hair. How many sections did we do? I think we did like
four sections in total. Maybe four or five. A lot of hair’s stuck inside, so I would either like vacuum it out or– They give instructions of how to clean up, but I would probably vacuum it out first before sanitizing it, whatever, et cetera. – [Andrey] Are those are
blades in there, if you can– – [Milana] Yeah, those are– Well, this right here is what makes your hair go through, but the blades are right
there on both sides. You can see the blades. All right, we’re going to
inspect the hair split ends. All right, so I see a split
end right here, right away. You can see her right there. I’m just gonna move it out. Nope, is that a split end? These, no, hold up. That’s not a split end. Hold on, you guys. All right, so I thought
I saw some split ends, but then when I go for
it, it just breaks apart, and it’s two different sections of hair or even three sections of hair. I’m sure there is some split ends in here, but they’re not extremely noticeable. It honestly just went in and cut a quarter of an inch of my hair, the ends of hair. And you can see some
sections are a lot longer, for example, this right here. Oh, some of these are a lot longer than a quarter of an inch, but most of them are a lot shorter. But this right here is a lot, like this right here is a big, long piece. – All right. – I am going to try on hair extensions. I’m not gonna comb them out, and I wanna see if it’s gonna get stuck or if it’s gonna pull. Andrey’s gonna be of assistance. I’m gonna grab a thicker
section, something like this, quite thick. And then let’s choose the arrow
right here, which is down. Put that in the center. – [Andrey] Yeah. (motor buzzes) Yes, see. You literally have to physically pull it but it’s not getting stuck. – [Andrey] Wait – I mean, it’s pulling the hair out ’cause it’s an extension. – [Andrey] Yeah. – Let’s do something even thicker. – [Andrey] Let’s put
It on the wrong arrow. – Oh, arrow. Let’s do that. – [Andrey] People will do that. – All right, we’re gonna
do on a wrong arrow and we’re gonna grab
this section right here. (motor buzzes) Nope, it’s literally– It doesn’t go anywhere. – [Andrey] It’s too thick. – Ah, that’s scary. – [Andrey] No, just go a little lower. (motor buzzes) Is anything getting trimmed? – Yeah, a little bit. It’s still getting trimmed,
but it’s mostly cutting the hair now. Interesting. – [Andrey] How do we make it fail? – Yeah, it’s not failing, you guys. That’s good. I didn’t cut massive chunks out, so that’s really good. So let’s talk about it. Overall, did it work or did it perform? Did it trim my hair? Yes, it definitely trimmed my hair. But did it target the split ends? No, because it’s not that smart. It can’t be that smart. You would need some
kind of crazy technology to target only the split
ends and trim the split ends. So essentially, like I did
say towards, in the video, when I was doing it,
it’s essentially trimming all of your hair a quarter of an inch. So please keep that in mind. Don’t start at the very top if you don’t want your
hair trimmed at the top. Only start like halfway or mid I would say like this
much, the end of your hair. That’s where I would focus it on. And we did try to make it
fail to see what would happen, it would get stuck, if it
would make weird noises. But the only thing it does it just moves a lot slower when it’s
a very thick section, so you have to kind of pull it through. So that’s not the best advice. So the best advice like they did say is use only small, thin sections. And that is gonna take a long time to do, especially if you’re doing
three times per section, which I think is unnecessary, honestly. But it does work. – [Andrey] And also, it doesn’t look like It cuts all the hair It’s still kind of being selective. – Yes, kind of. – [Andrey] But it’s not being
selective towards split ends. – Exactly. It’s not cutting all of
your hair strands because that would be, I think, impossible. – [Andrey] Yeah, there’ll
be a lot of hair. – There’ll be a lot more hair here on this little black envelope
with the hair, right there. So that’s good that it’s
being somewhat selective as good as not cutting all of
the hair because the blades, they’re not that big. So, I mean, they’re not spaced too small, whereas you’re just gonna try to cut as much hair as possible, and that’s good. So the one thing I do wanna say that is very bothersome and can, I just think it’s
bothersome, is the noise. It’s so loud. (motor buzzes) And it sounds very
intimidating, very intimidating. And it is very bulky at the top, especially you have to hold this, so you kind of have to
manipulate your hand around to do it yourself. I’m sure it’s gonna be easier if
somebody else does it for you, but if you’re doing it yourself,
it’s gonna take a long time and it’s a little
inconvenient of the size. But it’s wireless or cordless, however you wanna call it. So it does come with the
charger, it’s right here. And then you just plug
her in towards the bottom. It’s not a USB charger whatsoever. You just need a plug to
plug this in, pretty much. So overall, is this worth $145? No. (laughs) No. For the technology-wise, it’s
not there. It’s far away. I think just getting a little trim if that’s what you’re going for. And trims are not $145. And it just takes way too
long for the entire head. I only did what, I think,
four to six sections, I think, and that was roughly– – [Andrey] 10 minutes. – 10 minutes, just that alone. Just to make sure you
know everything is even, there’s no tangles. It’s not gonna cut your hair. You know what I mean, like
chop it off, but yeah. I do wanna say it seems safe enough. Like I did say, we’ve kind of tried to do really thick sections,
really try to pull on it, try to go in the opposite
direction, and it still worked. I think it might have a really
hard time with curly hair. Like they do say in the instructions, it’s best for straight to wavy hair. If you have curly hair,
just like with a hairbrush, it’s very hard to get through
because this is essentially a hairbrush with the blades inside. So if you do want a trim
and you have curly hair, I would just go get a
professional to trim your hair. I’d rather just go to a professional, get my hair nice and trimmed,
get it really fresh looking. You know what I mean? So this is, I feel like
it’s a little too expensive to do on your own. I’m not a fan. Let me know if you have tried this tool, and if you did your entire head, how many times did you do each section and how long did it take you to do this? Like I said, I think I
would keep it towards the bottom of my hair. I would not start at the very top because I don’t care to
trim my hair at the top. I don’t care to get layers or more layers. I’m trying to grow out my hair to be as even of a length as possible. So, for me, personally, if
I were to keep using this, which I’m not, I would only focus towards the bottom of my hair
where most split ends are. So keeping that in mind,
please let me know. How did you enjoy this product? Did it work out for you? Did you have a good experience? Did you have a negative experience? What kind of hair did you have? Please let us all know your
thoughts and experience. But for now, thank you for watching and spending time with me
and the Split-Ender Pro 2. And I’ll see you in
the next one very soon. Bye. (Blows kiss)

How Binary Options Work – Can You Really Make Money With Binary Options?

Binary options are one of the most controversial trading instruments. For a reason, see, on the one hand, they’re super easy to trade and therefore perfect for beginners. And they are perfect for traders with small accounts because you can open a binary options account with as little as $250. But then on the other hand, there are some binary options brokers out there that are simply a scam. Most of them are overseas and when you wire money to them, you’ll never see it again. So let’s take a closer look at binary options and see if they are legit, and if you can’t really make money with binary options. So in this video, you’ll learn how binary options work. We’ll talk about can you really make money with binary options? We’ll talk about what are the best binary options brokers that are not a scam? Are binary options legit? Is it safe to trade binary options? And what is the best strategy for binary options? So let’s get started. So how do binary options work? Well, binary options are super easy to understand because you just need to make a decision if a certain market is above or below a certain price by a certain time. Now, let me give you an example. Let’s say you believe that gold will close above $1,700 by the end of the day. So you can place a binary option straight. The price of a binary option will be between zero and $100. And that’s the amount that you need to put on the table to place this bet. So let’s say the price of the binary option to bet on gold being above $1,700 by the end of the day is $40. Now, if by the end of the day gold closes above $1,700, you get $100 back. So you put $40 in and you get $100 back so your profit is $60. Now if gold closes below $1,700 then you get nothing back. And since the broker took $40 out of your account and you get zero dollars back, your loss is $40. Now is this making sense? Because if it does hit like so that I know that we are going at the right pace. So here’s the cool thing. Binary options are available for a wide variety of underlying markets. So they’re available for major indices like the Dow Jones, The S&P 500, NASDAQ. They are available for major commodities like crude oil, gold, silver, and they’re available for major currencies like the EUR versus USD. The USD versus the JPY, the GBP versus the USD. And they expire daily or even hourly. So if you don’t want to wait until the end of the day, you can trade a binary option that expires in the next hour. All you need to do is decide whether a certain market is closing above or below a certain price within the next hour. As you can see, the possibilities are almost endless. So the next question is, can you really make money with binary options? If you trade with a reputable broker – yes. So we’ll talk about the best binary option brokers that are not a scam in a few moments. But let’s talk about how to make money with binary options first. So here are the three things you need to know. Number one, is the market more likely to go up or down? Number two, will the market closed above or below a certain level? And number three, what is the maximum price you’re willing to bet? Now, I will show you a simple trading strategy for binary options in the next video. But before I show you this strategy, let’s first talk about what are the best binary option brokers. You see there are a lot of fraudulent binary option brokers and scammers out there, and you need to be careful. You see, the only broker that I would ever trust is the North American Derivatives Exchange, also called Nadex. Nadex is 100% legitimate and is designated by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission, also called CFTC as a Designated Contract Market and Derivatives Clearing Organization. And you see the CFTC is a US government agency whose mission is “to foster open, transparent, competitive and financially sound markets,” “to avoid systematic risk,” and “to protect market users like us and their funds from fraud, manipulation and abusive practices.” Now, I know that’s a mouthful for saying Nadex is a 100% legitimate and regulated exchange. And the best! They allow customers like us to open an account directly with them so you’re cutting out the middleman, which means lower commissions for you. Now, talking about commissions, I really like Nadex’s commission structure because it’s only one dollar to open a trade and they only charge you another dollar to close the trade if you’re making money. If you lose money, they don’t charge you a commission to close the trade. How awesome is that? Long story short, if you want to trade binary options, trade them at Nadex. Now, before we continue, let me ask you, is this helpful thus far? Because if it is, click on like because this way I know which videos you like the best and I’ll make more of them. So if you’re enjoying the video, click on like now. OK. So the next question, are binary options legit? Now, as stated earlier, there are many unregulated brokers who just take the customer’s money and never return it. Most of those brokers are operating offshore in countries that have very few or no regulations at all. In the United States, brokers and exchanges are very regulated, and as of the moment, Nadex is one of the few license companies in the United States that is allowed to offer binary options trading. Binary options are legal and available to trade in the United States, but only on a CFTC, a regulated United States exchange, which again is Nadex. In a nutshell, as long as you trade binary options on Nadex, it’s legit and legal. Now this leads us to the next question, is binary options trading safe? Now, we already talked about the regulations, so we don’t need to cover this again. As a trading vehicle binary options are very safe since they are not leverage. This means that you cannot lose more money than you have in your account. Here’s an example, if you have $500 in your account and you want to put on a trade in which you risk $50, Nadex will automatically reserve $50 from your funds. Now when the order is filled, these $50 will automatically be deducted from your account. So your balance is now $450. Now, if you are right, Nadex will give you $100 back as soon as the options expire. In this case, your account balance will jump from $500 to $550. So you made $50. Because of this mechanism, it’s impossible for you to lose more money than you have in your account. So as you can see, trading binary options is safe. So next question, what is the best strategy for binary options? The best strategy for binary options is a strategy that makes it easy for you to pick a direction of the market. After all, in order to make money with binary options, you need to know, number one, is the market more likely to go up or down? Number two, will the market close above or below a certain level? And number three, what’s the maximum price you’re willing to bet? Actually, since this video right now is getting pretty long, I’ll stop right here and I’ll do another video on a trading strategy for binary options.

4 USELESS Marketing Tools You’re Still Using (STOP Wasting Your Money)

– While six to eight years
ago some of the tools that I’m going to mention
were really useful. Today, they’re just
going to waste your time. So, when you read about
them on the blackout forums or SEOs talking about how they
can skyrocket your rankings, you should avoid them at all costs cause they’re going to risk your rankings. Hi everyone. I’m Neil Patel and today
I want to teach you four useless marketing tools
that you’re still using and you should stop wasting
your time and money on. (gentle music) Before we get started,
make sure you subscribe to this channel and if you’re on YouTube click the alert notification. The first tool is automated
link building tools. A few years ago, you could
use tools like Scrape Box or SEnuke to build a ton of backlinks, which would end up helping
your website rank better. But, those days are gone. Since the penguin
update, Google has become more and more sophisticated
with algorithms created to detect artificial
backlink patterns. When you’re using an
automated link building tool you’re likely going to
build irrelevant backlinks from pages that aren’t really
related to your content. This can hurt your rankings. The biggest problem is you’ll
leave footprints behind you. Google will be able to
identify these patterns with your backlinks and they’ll know that you’re artificially inflating them and this is going to either
keep your rankings flat or it can actually hurt
them at the same time. Google even has clear policies that forbid you from doing things like creating malicious backlinks. They go as far as even
saying that creating links that weren’t editorial
placed or vouched for by the site owners on the page, otherwise known as unnatural links, could be considered a
violation of their guidelines. They will often either
ignore these links or, worse case, they could penalize
you for these bad practices. And that’s rare. Most people don’t get penalized but still, why risk it? Why waste time on something that’s not going to help
you rank any better. So, I want you to stop using
automated link to link tools. Instead, you need to create value. Put the user first, whether it’s content, whether it’s tools like Ubersuggest. You know, if you look at Ubersuggest I’ve generated over 10,000 backlinks. How’d I do this? Purely by giving away something for free. That’s helped tremendously
for me over the years. And you don’t have to
create a tool like that or go as far as I have. You can use sites like CodeCanyon, buy tools that have already existed, buy them for 10, 20 dollars,
pop them on your site and generate natural
backlinks as well from that. The next tool you need to stop using, it’s any text or content spinners. Spinning content in an automated way in rewriting articles
has been done for ages. Back in 2011, people could just spin up, rotate up, content on
already popular articles from other sites, repurpose them, and put them on your
site and people are like, “Wow, look at all these pages
of content I’m creating”. But now, with the panda algorithm update, Google now looks at
this kind of being like, “Whoa, it provides very
little value to a user”. And if that’s the case and
your user metrics are terrible, your rankings are going to plummet. Not just for that page,
but your whole site. If you have a lot of pages
that are just spun up, that are not a great user experience, it can affect your whole
site, not just those pages. So, what you need to realize is creating content doesn’t
guarantee your rankings. Creating amazing content that people love is going to give you a much better chance of ranking fairly well. Google has a pretty smart AI and they can easily
identify variations of text that you have on your website that other people have and the
places that you took it from. So, instead of using these tools, what I want you to do is do research, people love research, they’re more likely to link to articles that have research, look for reputable sources
and tie in that data into your article and site your sources and make sure that you’re writing high quality, original content. The next tool that you’re
wasting your time on is LinkedIn lead generation bots. A lot of people say great things about using automated tools that generate you leads on LinkedIn. These tools can help you
add dozens of contacts on a daily basis, hundreds
on a weekly basis, do cold outreach and
semi-personal messages selling your products, your services. So let’s say you’re a sales
rep for a software company and you need to get in touch with as many potential
clients as possible. The best thing to do on Earth would be use an automated tool, right? Wrong. The main problem with this is that A, LinkedIn doesn’t want
you to use automation and it goes against their rules. And two, people know that you’re sending them spammy messages. They’re not going to convert. You’re going to be a
sales rep at a company or marketing person promoting some content and it’s not going to get you any love. On top of this, LinkedIn has sited that they’re going to
battle up and fight people who are creating these chrome
extensions automated tools and put them down for good. So, instead what you want to
do it create valuable content on LinkedIn that people want to read, especially if it’s video based,
cause LinkedIn loves videos. You’ll also can go live on LinkedIn, which does tremendously well as well. And by doing those things you’re
going to get more followers from there as well, you can
sell your content and services. Just think of it this way,
if I create a live video on LinkedIn and I’m providing value, people are going to be like,
“Oh Neil, this is great”. And within that video not
only getting more followers, more shares, more
comments, more engagements, I can talk about my ad
agency, Neil Patel Digital, and some people will go
from my LinkedIn video to Neil Patel Digital and
then become a customer. Last but not least, comment bot. Much like automated
content creation tools, a lot of people have been using bots to automate commenting
on other sites for years. This is what plugins
like Akismet by WordPress are so popular. No one wants all these
spammy blog comments. I literally get thousands and thousands of blog comments per day. Now, I even conducted an
experiment to determine or not whether comment links
have affect on rankings. And believe it or not, they do. But, when using automated tools, you’re leaving a lot of
footprints behind you plus, you’re providing no value to people. Those comments are just
going to get deleted or get caught in comment spam traps. So, instead, if you
want to leave comments, write up something that’s thoughtful that helps people. Not just the person that wrote the article but other people reading
it and then leave it. When you leave relevant comments A, people are going to know about you and start following you. B, if they like what you have to say they may check out your business. And C, they may end up
converting into a customer. Now, Google is looking
for spammy comments, you don’t want to associate your
website with spammy comments cause all it’s going to
do is hurt your rankings. My recommendation is for
you to think long-term. Don’t take those quick hits being like, “Yeah, I just do this and my
rankings are going to increase”. Anyone that tells you something
that’s too good to be true, chances are it is and it’s
just going to hurt you in the long run. If you need help with your rankings, your digital marketing, check

The Two Marketing Careers That Will CRUSH IT in 2020

– Are you considering career marketing? Not sure where to start? Do you want to know which ones
have the best future outlook? Hi everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today, I’m going to break down the two marketing careers
that’ll crush it in 2020. (bright music) Before we get started, make sure you subscribe to this channel, and if you’re on YouTube,
click the alert notification. Marketing is a ever-evolving industry, so it’s no wonder that
new marketing careers are always coming in. However, in 2020, marketing has seen two new big careers that
are going to take off. The first is a marketing data scientist. One thing that marketing is for sure, there are a ton of
different metrics to track. Numbers don’t lie, right? This is so important to be
able to take these numbers and have a clear understanding
with your audience their behavior on your
site of what’s working, what’s not working, where
companies should focus their time, and where they shouldn’t. Not only can it help you
with your marketing strategy, but it also can help you with
your overall business as well. One of the biggest issues
that I see in businesses and even ad agencies that are facing is how to take that data
and make sense of it, and paint a clear, easy
to understand picture of a site’s performance, and a strategy of what they should do next. See, here’s the thing, data scientists weren’t as
needed five, 10 years ago because there weren’t as many sources, but now, just think about
it, there’s paid ad, Google, Facebook, Pinterest,
Taboola, Outbrain, the list keeps going on
and on, there’s even Bing. So that’s why a data
scientist is so important because there’s so many different metrics that are required to focus
on from time on page, unique visitors versus
returning versus cohort reports, balance rates, click
through rates, traffic, traffic growth rates,
average time spent per visit, all these things are really important, and the list can keep going
on and on about metrics that people should be tracking and ones that are confusing
and hard to understand and because there’s so many sources where you can get the data, a lot of times you’ll find discrepancies and companies are looking at, like, hey, who can help read this data, make clear and easy sense of this
just because there’s way too much conflicting data out there. Now, the job description for this job, according to Data Mania is generating perspective insights, tactical and strategic insights to
improve marketing effectiveness, exploratory data analysis, advising and assisting management
and other professionals in working with and understanding
organizational data. The average salary,
according to Glassdoor, the national average salary
for a marketing data analysis is $61,473 in the United States. The skills required is understanding of online analytics data, strong communication
skills, and statistical and machine-learning
based predictive modeling. Now, director of growth marketing. This is another job that is
booming in the marketing world. One thing that I see a
lot of in my ad agency is companies, these days, have
a lot of issues with growth, and they’re finding that
their growth is plateauing, and they’re becoming stagnant. Why? Because it’s the easiest
time to start a business. As Howard Schultz from Starbucks put it. “Now is the cheapest
and most affordable time “to create a business.” But that’s caused everyone
to just go out there and compete with you, which
makes it harder to grow. So these days, companies are
looking for a growth marketer, and a growth marketer is someone who identifies a gap in the company, and they work with all departments to increase the overall ROI. Now the job description is growth marketers are data-driven pros who work to find innovative
ways to drive user acquisition, to keep customers engaged, to retain them, and ultimately, turn them
into brand champions. The average salary, according to Indy, for a growth marketer in the
United States is $96,790. The skills required
are brand storytelling, digital marketing and data analytics, executional skills and
marketing automation. Now, with a growth marketer, remember, your key isn’t to just grow
a marketing department, it’s to figure out how sales, engineering, marketing, product development, every department can
combine and come together to grow the business and
generate more of ROI. Because a lot of things
put together, such as, let’s say if you’re a software company, marketing may bring someone in, automatically sell a
customer, they sign up, customer service may get in there and figure out ways to
upsell that customer, right, or sales may come in, sell a customer that marketing drove a lead for, and then customer success
upsells that customer. These are all examples
of how a growth marketer can help a organization. Now if you need help growing your company, especially your growth spot line, check out my ad agency,

The Definitive Guide to Ubersuggest for SEO and Content Marketing

– A lot of people tell me hey, Neil, I can see Ubersuggest has
some tons of really cool data, and interesting features to
grow my website and traffic, but how do I use it? How do I get the most out of
it so I can get more traffic, create more content, and
rank higher on Google? Hey, everyone, I’m Neil Patel,
and today I’m going to give you The Definitive Guide to Ubersuggest for SEO and Content Marketing. (upbeat music) Now, before we get started, make sure you subscribe to this channel. That way, as we produce
more content like this, you’ll get notified. And if you’re on YouTube,
click the alert notification. So, let’s start off top to bottom. The first feature within
Ubersuggest that I want to go over is the Keyword Overview section. So the Keyword Overview
section gives you data on any keyword that you’re
looking for information on. The reason I love this, is
you can put in a keyword, it’ll tell you the volume,
the CPC, SEO difficulty, the paid difficulty, it even shows you how many links you need to
roughly rank in the top 10. Here’s the cool part. What’s unique about
Ubersuggest is it shows you how many people are
searching for the keyword on a mobile device versus desktop device. It even tells you how many people click on the SEO results
versus paid results, versus not clicking at all. It even tells you the age
demographic information on what’s the age range of the people that are searching for this query. That’s why I love the keyword overview. Now, if you dive into
the Keyword Ideas Report, this will give you a
laundry list of suggestions related to all the terms
that you’re researching. So, if you type in marketing, it’ll give you all the other
terms related to marketing. It’ll do it based off of related
keywords Google suggests, comparisons, prepositions,
the list goes on and on. Even tells you all the questions
that people are searching related to that keyword that you enter. It tells you how difficult
those keywords are to rank for, who’s ranking for them on the right side, how many links they have, how
many social shares they have, it tells you everything you know to see if you could rank for that keyword, or it’s going to be hard or easy. Now, the next report that I love, and this one’s not used enough by people, but I would recommend you
start spending more time here. If you start typing in specific keywords, the Content Ideas Report will tell you all the popular blog
posts that are popular based on that topic. And it doesn’t just break
it down on social shares. It breaks down by social
shares, backlinks, and estimated traffic. And when you go down and
click on the backlinks, or the estimated traffic, it shows you all the keywords that
that blog post ranks for, the position, the term, and
even from the backlinks, when you click down on to View All, it’ll show you every single
site and the anchor tags that’s linking to that article. This will help you create
content that’s similar to them, and you want to create better content using Brian Dean’s Skyscraper Technique. Like, you know, if someone
has a 10-story building, someone in Dubai may be like, we’re going to create
a 100-story building, and someone in China may be like, we’re going to create
a 200-story building. It’s never ending, that’s
the Skyscraper Technique, you’re outdoing other people. But the Content Ideas Report
will show you what’s popular, and just outdo them, create
something that’s 10 times better. Now, the next section of Ubersuggest is the Traffic Analyzer. You can put in any domain
name like, and it’ll show you the traffic
that that site’s getting from Google over time. Now, what’s interesting
about this report is, not only does it show you
the traffic over time, it shows you how many keywords that site ranks for over time as well. Just because a site ranks
for a lot of keywords, doesn’t mean it gets a lot of traffic. Some keywords don’t get much traffic. Other keywords get tons of traffic, and that’s what you can see in this Traffic Analyzer Overview Report. Now, if you scroll down,
you can click to Top Pages. Top Pages will show you
any of the top pages on any given domain name. You can click to see the
keywords that someone ranks for for each of those pages, right? because it gives you estimated visits, and when you click to View All,
you’ll see all the keywords. Same goes for the backlinks,
you can see all the backlinks, and the keywords that
any given page ranks for, and you can keep going to
next page to next page, and see all the pages on
any given domain name. There’s also the Keywords
Report in the Traffic Analyzer. If you put in a domain
name, it’ll show you all the keywords that a URL ranks for. And this is just a full list of keywords sorted by popularity. And this is useful because now you know what a site is targeting. Now, the next area of Ubersuggest,
is the Site Audit Report. You can put in a URL, and it’ll tell you all the SEO issues of the site. Now, here’s my favorite part
about the Site Audit Report. It breaks down, in the
recommendations area, based on errors and recommendations, what you should focus on. It puts the stuff at
the top that will have the highest impact, and is
the easiest to implement. And the stuff at the bottom, typically is harder to implement,
and has a lower impact. So, you want to do all the
stuff at the top first. Now, the last section of
Ubersuggest is the Backlink Report. Put in the domain name, it’ll show you the
backlink growth over time. Is the site growing in
backlinks, or is it decreasing? It even shows you the new and
lost links on a daily basis. Heck, it’ll even tell
you each of the links for that page, or that whole domain. Now, the very, very last
section of Ubersuggest that not a lot of people
talk about is the dashboard. The dashboard allows you to add a project. This allows you to
track your SEO progress. Is your traffic going
on, is it going down? It even tracks your
rankings on a daily basis and tells you are your
rankings going up or down, and it sends you a report. It even crawls your website for SEO errors on a weekly basis and tells
you what you need to fix. And it even looks at your competition and tells you if you’re
doing better than them, or worse than them. So that’s it to Ubersuggest. If you use all those features,
you’re going to be better off, you’re going to get more search traffic, because it’ll guide you
throughout your journey and tell you what you need to fix, and what you’re doing fine on. If you need help with your SEO, check out my ad agency,

services with outgoing calls are advertising campaigns market research
and selling products by telephone. Inbound call centres usually takes care
of customer service giving information taking orders and providing help
desk functions. In the last few years operators have also started to handle
email fax online chat. A telephone operator work has become progressively
more computerized over the last few decades. Now the automatic distribution
of calls at technical performance control has been introduced in the call
centers. Point number two is how much salary you get in the call center. The
typical job function in both inbound and outbound call centers will be similar.
You will be doing either customer support sales or debt collection. If
you’re working for domestic call center in countries like India the average
annual salary with one year experience is approximately three lakh rupees per
year whereas an international call center it is approximately five lakh or
around eight thousand US dollars. Point number three is how you can make a
career in a call center. Call center is one of the high income industry where
you can have a decent salary and career growth. There are common roles like a
center manager team leaders and advisors. There are also other functions such as
HR trainers or operational management that play a vital role in the call
center. The size of the center will determine the number of team leaders and
additional support roles. Point number four is interview questions and answers.
To get a job in a call center before you appear for an interview in a call center
it’s important to know the common questions asked and the possible answers.
Interview question number one is how will you sell me the pen. A very common
question asked in the call center interview is how will you sell me the
pen. To get a sense of your sales skills interviewers ask you to
demonstrate your approach to selling a product. As a part of the interview the
hiring manager wants to learn about how you sell and what are the strategies you
use to close a deal. While answering this question make sure you be positive and
enthusiastic. Make sure that you are positive and excited about the product.
As you introduce it, you might say something like I’m excited to tell you
how this pen can help you to write in an attractive and efficient manner. Don’t be
afraid to ask few questions. The more you know about your interviewer’s needs the
better your pitch will be. Play off the interviewers responses to emphasize some
features of your pen that might help them in their activities. For example if
your interviewer mentions taking notes at the meetings as a priority then you
might say that the pen has a fine point and non smearing ink which will enable
her to take illegible notes. If your interviewer was frustrated by the pens
that dint write on a certain surfaces or quickly
ran out of ink, you could emphasize how freely the ink flows from your pen and
the large capacity of ink available. Both for the reservations about the product
or service and eliciting and overcoming the objections to a product is a
critical element of the sales process. After making some statement
about the benefits of the product, check back with the interviewer to determine
if they have any concerns that would stand in the way of purchase.
You could ask after hearing my pitch is there anything that would stand in the
way of you purchasing this pen. Make an attempt to close. Sales people who are
willing and effective closers are in the highest demand. Don’t hesitate to ask the
interviewer for her business at the end of your presentation. Make an
enthusiastic final statement that includes a request to serve the customer.
Question number two in interview is what is your idea of a call center and what
is the history. The origins of the physical call center go back to the
early 1950s and 1960s with the emergence of automatic call distribution
technology. This technology enabled large companies to filter calls and assign
them to the best possible agents available at one point. In the 1980s a
call centers were commonly known and the industry was boosted by fall in the cost
of phone calls. The 1990s saw dynamic growth driven by the rise of internet
and a dramatic growth of dot-com businesses. As websites became the
central point of contact and sales for a growing number of companies all centers
became increasingly important as means of dealing with customer service had
technical support. Example now the call centers are very common in many
countries many American companies have set up their call centers in India. Like
Amazon has its customer service center in Bangalore a British Airways has their
call Center in Gurgaon. Leave a comment below if you wish to make a career in
call centers and what are your current challenges. I will make sure to address
your questions in my next videos. Point number five is what is the criteria for
applying for a call center job. The call center customer service executives hold
high-level problem-solving positions in fast-paced work environments. They must
have a strong communication skills and the ability to think quickly and
creatively to solve consumer problems in a professional manner.
These executives are responsible for enacting their company standards while
providing exemplary service to the consumers. An advanced degree may be
required by some employers for this position but not in all cases. The
ability to type at a minimum of 30 words per minute may also be required as data
entry is a major part of this position. Perspective candidates should have an
exceptional knowledge of the operation of computer software programs and
sometimes about the predictive dialers system. Candidates should also be able to
pass background checks as they may occasionally need to work with sensitive
consumer information like credit cards. Point number six is what is the future
of a call center. By 2025 the call centers will be handling a far wider
range of responsibilities. The agents will be interacting with the customers
continually proactively and contextually across an ever-increasing number of
channels. They will be using both words speech and a new ritual based language.
This will have a profound impact on the type of staff that will need to be
employed and the technology this staff will use to support the end customer.
Customer interaction will be more with social media voice and video. Call
centers will be more efficient through the use of IOT and artificial
intelligence. Point number seven is what is the
difference between a call center and a BPO. A BPO company usually shoulders the
responsibility of running a process of another business or organization. BPO
services are conceptualized and practiced for businesses to save on cost
or gain in productivity. On the other hand a call center service is designed
to perform the tasks of a business process of another organization which
mainly deals with telephone calls. A call center in India for instance primarily
handles customer complaints order-taking queries and booking inquiries coming in
over a telephone. So these were some of the important points in todays video. If you are looking for some more information on all centers BPO or
