- Face(book) it - Mobile Marketing Brings Big Returns
Date: January 05, 11
Okay, Mr. Retail Business Owner, here’s how it all comes down. You just got a call from your buyer in Singapore who scored a once-in-a-lifetime, pre-shipment purchase of THE PRODUCT that everyone in the U.S has been screaming for. So, what’s the bottom line, you ask? How does an after expense, off the scale profit of $16.4 million in 3 days fit your business model dream?
What’s the catch, you say? This is it... You’ve got to sell out in 3 days because after that, the bulk of the product is being shipped to the mainland to your competitors and everyone will have it. How are you going to pull this off?Read Entry

- Mobile Marketing
Date: November 12, 10
Go ahead and ask. “What’s mobile marketing?”
Formally, it’s a method of commercial communication on a mobile device.
Quite simply, it’s advertising your product or service on a potential customer’s cellular phone.
That’s what makes it mobile, unique, and downright irresistible to the advertiser. Who wouldn’t want to leverage a limited advertising budget on a device that a consumer carries and continually consults more than 14 hours of every day, 365 days of every year? What other kind of advertising can offer you saturation numbers like that?Read Entry
- FORGET LOCATION - YOUR BUSINESS SUCCESS RELIES ON MARKETING!
Date: November 10, 10
How successful do you want your business to be? If that sounds like a loaded question, it is. Obviously, nobody starts a business with a goal of having it end up in failure. But according to a sampling by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statitics, there's less than a 50% chance a new business will still be in business within 4 years.
And what’s the reason for this epidemic of evaporating entrepreneurship?Read Entry
Bad product or service? Perhaps.
Bad location? Probably not.
Bad marketing? Bingo!

- Building Solutions with merely a requirments list is suicide
Date: August 10, 10
Some people still believe they can provide a technical solution with nothing more than their foolish pride, a little know-how, and list of requirements from the client. This may work in some areas, but when it comes to my field it only provides short term success in the best of situations, and more often than not leads to long term disappointment and frustration on both sides (client and solution provider).Read Entry
- Better Service is just an experience away
Date: May 24, 10

- Personal Marketing by Leonardo da Vinci
Date: February 15, 10
I receive several newsletters these days. I like to see how different companies are using the power of the web to market their businesses and services. Some of these efforts are better than others. However, this morning as I read the latest newsletter from Marc Cenedella of TheLadders.com I was "blown away" to read a personal marketing letter from the true renaissance man; Leonardo da Vinci.Read Entry
- How much better could software be?
Date: February 08, 10
Back in August of 2009 I wrote an article about the idea of using the concept of personas to help develop better software (The Power of Personas). This touches on one of many things that we do here at QuantumDelta help make the software we develop and create better. This morning, I watched a great video interview of Jason Fried of 37Signals talk about many things. He discusses security, service, the software industry, cloud computing. This is a good interview that is very educational. However, it got me thinking... Think outside of the box... dream big, and think about the question. How much better could software be? Read Entry

Date: November 20, 09
When a Samurai has said he will perform an action, it is as good as done. Nothing will stop him from completing what he has said he will do. He does not have to "give his word". He does not have to "promise". Speaking and Doing are the same Action! If I say it, it shall be, it is as good as done. (Matt. 5:37)Read Entry

- Chugi – Loyalty
Date: November 09, 09
For Samurai, having done some "thing" or said some "thing," he knows he owns that "thing." He is responsible for it, and all the consequences that follow. A Samurai is immensely loyal to those in his care, to those he is responsible for, he remains fiercely true.Read Entry
- How are you getting new clients these days?
Date: October 29, 09
Personally, I've built my entire business on referrals. No real advertising dollars have been spent, no sales force, just referrals. This has worked for us well. However, recently several of my clients have helped me appreciate what we have to offer to our clients. Deedra Determan (one of our clients) of 918moms recently said; "QuantumDelta is the best kept secret in Web Development". Watching our clients talk about how wonderful our Content Management System (QDCMS) is use and how great we are about customer service has got me thinking. What is working to help businesses in this recession get new clients? I'd love to know. Read Entry

- Setting Goals for your web project
Date: October 08, 09
In my opinion, there is the problem with typical web goals like "Enhance ad management system to provide geo targeting of ads in 60 days"... Then what? You achieved the goal... so now what? Set another goal? I am not saying that these don't have their place or do not have value. I just think there is a better way. Read Entry

Date: September 25, 09
Through intense training the Samurai becomes quick and strong. He is not as other men. He develops a power that must be used for the good of all. He has compassion. He helps his fellow man at every opportunity. If an opportunity does not arise, he goes out of his way to find one. (Luke 10:30-37)Read Entry
- Rei – Respect
Date: September 20, 09
Samurai have no reason to be cruel. They do not need to prove their strength. A Samurai is courteous even to his enemies (Matt. 5:44). Without this outward show of respect, we are nothing more than animals. A Samurai is not only respected for his strength in battle, but also by his dealing with other people (Mark 12:33). The true strength of a Samurai becomes apparent during difficult times (James 1:2-4).Read Entry

Bushido is the way of the warrior in ancient Japan, as Christians we are called to be bold, to be warriors (Matt. 8:9, Eph. 6:10-17). The word Samurai in Japanese means to serve, as Christians we are called to service. In ancient Japan Samurai served lords (ones who owned lands). I am Samurai for the Lord of Lords! I live by His Word (the sword of truth) and Bushido in all my dealings.Read Entry

- The Power of Personas: Software should NOT make you feel stupid!
Date: August 25, 09
Typically, web developers do not create software/sites that is fun and easy for real people to use. The most perfect software is still a failure if no one ever uses it, or for that matter can not use it because it makes its people feel stupid when they try and use it. This entry explains the power of developing a true target with a few well thought out and somewhat detailed personas projects go much smoother for both client and developer. Read Entry

- Marketing Our SaaS?
Date: July 29, 09
We've spent the past 7.5 years building the right combination of software and services. Now that we have an incredible offering, I am trying to figure out how best to "offer" it to the world. I am a developer and an entrepreneur, but I am no marketing whiz. I often think that God did not make me with the 'marketing gene'. Most of the time exploring my network of contacts provides the right person or persons who have done exactly what I am needing help with at the time and more often than not, the people in my network have done bigger and better things than what I need help with. Usually, my tasks are 'small potatoes' for them. Yet, this time, I have yet to find anyone to date that has a solid proven track record with a successful launch of a SaaS (Software as a Service) via marketing. Read Entry

- Instructions for Setting up your Email With IMAP
Date: September 27, 07
We recommend that you change your account to an IMAP account. An IMAP account differs from a POP3 account in that all the emails stay on the server and are viewed remotely from your email client (Outlook, Outlook Express, ThunderBird, etc.). The emails are only put on your computer when you move the emails to a folder. You are also able to use our web application, RoundCube, which allows you to view your email from anywhere in the world via the internet.Read Entry
- What to look for in a firm
Date: September 25, 07
Check with some of the firm's existing or previous clients and have a series of questions ready. A great question to ask is, "What is your worst experience with the firm, and how did they handle it?" All firms will have instances where they have a poor experience with a client. The difference between a solid firm and a poor one is how they handle these poor experiences. The question is, did they make it right? Read Entry
