8 benefits of team-building trips

The success of your business depends on more than just the skills and abilities of each team member — your employees need to learn how to function as a cohesive whole. That doesn’t happen by accident. It takes team-building.

The best way to build stronger connections between team members is to get them out of the everyday environment. When employees meet together outside of the day-to-day routines and predictable patterns of the workplace setting, they form stronger bonds and develop a better understanding of each other’s strengths, abilities and weaknesses.

That’s where group h travel comes in, providing you with an invaluable tool to help improve the performance of your business.

To better understand and appreciate the value of off-site excursions for your workforce, here are the top 10 benefits of team-building corporate meetings and group travel excursions:

1. Encourages leadership. Given the opportunity, you may be surprised to find out which members of your team step up to the plate in a group travel incentive setting.

2. Builds morale. Creating opportunities for your team to let off some steam together recharges your team’s morale and boosts productivity.

3. Improves relationships. The team that learns how to play together, stays together!

4. Provides motivation. Group travel incentives and team-building activities can provide a much-needed break from routine.

5. Increases efficiency. Team-building events are an excellent opportunity for your employees to take a step back and identify ways to improve or enhance your business processes.

6. Builds trust. Getting to know the people you work with is essential to building trust and understanding amongst your employees.

7. Improves performance. Your workforce is a complex machine with lots of independently moving parts. Regular calibration is needed to improve and maintain that machine’s performance.

8. Encourages teamwork. Group travel team-building activities strengthen your organisation by teaching staff members to work together toward common company goals.

To learn more about how to organise the perfect team-building trip for your business you should contact a professional tour operator that specialises on creating tailor made travel solutions of any kind, for businesses. We recommend Refuga, which has a huge variety of trips for businesses on offer, on many exotic locations all around the world.

The Basics Of International SEO

Would you like to reach out to an international audience and expand your business’s Web presence? If so, an international SEO process might offer a scalable and cost-effective way to grow and reach your desired foreign target market.

But, what are the additional elements you need to take into consideration for a successful international SEO process? It’s important to understand what it takes in order to effectively plan your resources and actions with the required time and scope.

The basics

Most companies based in the United States focus on SEO on one or more of three levels: global, regional and local. At each level geographically specific keywords can be added to a company’s focus in order to optimize a website for terms that are more relevant to one’s business. A dentist in New York, for example, would be wasting time and money optimizing her website for a generic term like “dentist” because it’s hyper-competitive, and even if she could rank well for that term and drive traffic to her site, most of the traffic would be useless, as only people in the New York area would be willing to use her services.

For a business with wider geographical reach, the focus might be on multiple metro areas, or multiple states. Within the U.S., targeting customers who live a few hours distances from each other in states is a fairly straightforward matter. But outside the U.S., with its relatively homogenous population, targeting customers who live a few hours travel from each other can become a more complicated matter because instead of living in different states, these customers live in different countries, with different languages, cultures, and infrastructure. While international SEO can become quite complicated, here are some basics to take into consideration.

Different languages, different target audiences

It might seem obvious that one needs to communicate with customers in their native language, but it can sometimes be challenging to know how to best go about this. Whatever you do, don’t put your website’s text into Google Translate and then slap that up on your foreign language website. The results will be bad for your visitors, not to mention your SEO efforts. Hiring your nephew who participated in a study abroad program in Peru for a summer and “learned some Spanish” isn’t good enough either. One can find professional language translators on websites like oDesk, but quality and price can vary greatly.

Domain names

It’s easier to manage one website rather than 10. But having separate domain names for each country is the best way to go when it comes to international SEO. Think of it as an opportunity rather than a challenge. The fact it’s difficult gives you an advantage if you go this direction. Check out a provider like Namecheap if you need a good international registrar service.

Get local hosting

Hosting your website on the opposite side of the world from the country you’re targeting can have negative effects. Not only can it impact SEO results, but nobody wants to wait while your website is traveling 12,000 miles instead of loading instantly. Ideally, find a web hosting company that has a datacenter within the country you are targeting. The second best option is to find a web hosting company in a neighboring country.

Think big

With 300 million inhabitants the U.S. is a large consumer market, but companies that only target a U.S. audience are missing the larger opportunity. Asia-Pacific’s middle class stands at roughly 550 million today, and is expected to grow to over 3 billion by 2030 when it will represent two thirds of the world’s middle class population. This, combined with the introduction of low cost smartphones, will give billions access to the Internet. SEO results take time. If you want a piece of the ever growing pie represented by this new middle class, you’re better off engaging in international SEO sooner, rather than later.

As you have seen, the basics of international SEO goes beyond just translating the content of your site. It’s a full SEO process that needs research and analysis to select the best way to target your international audience and then correctly implement the targeting, taking your own business, technical and content characteristics, and restrictions into consideration. Otherwise, it would be difficult to achieve your international SEO goals.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Review

Some said it would never catch on, but here we are four years on from the original Galaxy Note phablet with the fourth generation device – the Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The Galaxy Note’s big screen and S Pen stylus are certainly not for everyone. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Alpha offer a more mainstream smartphone setup – the Note 4 brings together big power, a big screen and big productivity.
If you’re after a top-end smartphone which won’t break the bank (or your palm, pocket or handbag) then you’re probably in the wrong place.

At over £600 (around $840, AU$960) SIM free the Galaxy Note 4 is not cheap. On contract in the UK a free handset will probably see you shell out upwards of £40 per month for two years. It is a considerable investment.
It’s up against the likes of the Nexus 6, Nokia Lumia 1520, Huawei Ascend Mate 7 and the steeply priced iPhone 6 Plus, with the latter the only one matching the Note 4 in terms of cost.

Unlike the previous three iterations Samsung hasn’t deemed it necessary to increase the screen size of the Note 4, so it sticks with the same 5.7-inch dimensions of the Galaxy Note 3.
It’s not the same screen though, as Samsung has given the Galaxy Note 4 a hefty resolution boost – but more on that on the next page.

When it comes to design Samsung has definitely listened about its latest line-up feeling plasticky in the hand and has decided to give the Note 4 more of a premium finish.

There’s a metal rim surrounding the handset, shielding the rest of the chassis like a velvet rope protecting celebs from real people in a club.

It sports exactly the same shape, style and rounded corners as the Galaxy Alpha, only on a bigger scale and thanks to the increased size the plastic rear is more noticeable here than it is on the Alpha.

Samsung has tried to make the removable plastic cover feel more premium by giving it a leather effect finish, but there’s still no fooling your hand with that unmistakable texture.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 measures 153.5 x 78.6 x 8.5mm, almost the same as its predecessor and smaller in width and depth than the Galaxy Note 2, which is impressive considering this is the first of the Note series to sport a metal frame. I’ve also been using the 5.5-inch OnePlus One recently and there’s really not a lot to choose between the two in terms of size. It’s safe to say then, if you’re already accustomed to the larger league of smartphones then the Galaxy Note 4 will feel right at home in your palm.

This, then, is the Note handset with the most premium and accomplished look and feel to date. Samsung is finally providing the build quality its top-end devices have been yearning for.

Samsung has managed to keep the dimensions manageable – it’s certainly a lot easier to hold than the 6-inch Lumia 1520 and Ascend Mate 7 – and while the iPhone 6 Plus may look sleeker, the Galaxy Note 4 boasts a bigger, better screen and very similar dimensions.
