6 Ways to Use 3D Systems to Execute Business Strategy

6 Ways to Use 3D Systems to Execute Business Strategy

As a matter of fact, Virtual Reality (VR) is what we all have seen in the movies and heard of occurring in the very distant future, but that’s not true! Some of us are already experiencing it in many forms. Undoubtedly, the tech industry is raging on in a huge debate about virtual reality vs. augmented reality, which is opening up paths and opportunities for small businesses to take advantage of.

1. Augmented Reality

When it comes to the augmented reality, you’ll be able to see the physical, real-world environment with augmented computer-generated sensory input like video, sound, graphics or GPS data. The GPS smartphone app is the best example of augmented reality in which you can see the corner of the street by using a camera along with additional information appearing on structures.

2. Virtual Reality For Small Businesses

Also, virtual reality is the process of creating an artificial environment with the help of computer software and hardware, creating a realistic experience for the client. It’s an entirely immersive experience in which the customers feel that they’re moving to a different world.

The integration of augmented reality into our lives started after the arrival of smartphones. On the other hand, virtual reality is now starting to pave its path as a possible business tool, which connects customers in a whole new way. It’s recommended for marketers to use the VR in the best possible way in your small businesses.

3. Events

Virtual reality has made it feasible to attend a live football game or the opera from home. It’s the best part that anyone from around the globe can enjoy this view. As a business person, it’s a very good idea to connect your business with a live event with the help of sponsorship (that’s what most of the brands already doing). You can go one step further by integrating virtual reality flanking an event.

4. Research

When it comes to the marketing, the key to honing in on what’s beneficial and what’s not is research and data. To determine your audience preferences, you have to conduct questionnaires and surveys, but how you would be able to pick the brain of your target market while designing a storefront?

It’s quite beneficial if you create a products or store layout and present it your potential customers via virtual reality to get the feedback before execution. You can hone in everything starting from the décor to ambiance by the client feedback.

5. Products and Services

You can get your business and brand name in front of the target audience with the help of a website, direct mailing or TV commercials, but what about providing the customer a real experience about your offer? Just imagine if your potential clients are able to experience a destination such as a restaurant, hotel or casino without really being there in person.

If you allow your target audience to experience these places via VR, then you’re creating the best way to sell. For instance, you’re looking to buy a home online, yet pictures and videos aren’t enough to finalize the decision. With the help of virtual reality, you can transport the buyer directly into that home and to view the features as if he/she were really there.

6. Relationships

Can you believe that link building can be influenced by VR same as online gaming has morphed into a shared community of people? Brands will have a unique opportunity to relate with customers and inspire a sense of mutual loyalty. Moreover, virtual reality also enables a business to make their products, and the like, to reach out to the wider audience in an efficient, yet effective way.

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

8 Replacements for Google Notebook

Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

  1. Zoho Notebook
    If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
  2. Evernote
    The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
  3. Net Notes
    If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
  4. i-Lighter
    You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
  5. Clipmarks
    For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
  6. UberNote
    If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
  7. iLeonardo
    iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
  8. Zotero
    Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
