10 Reasons Websites Need Online Help Documentation

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Have you taken a look at online documentation tools lately? These tools can help you with preparing a good online manual or help desk. You should look at this with care so you can get your customers to receive the support that they require.

There are many good reasons why your website needs a great online help documentation system. You might be surprised at how your site can benefit from it. Of course, the customers that will come to your site will benefit just as well.

1. You can reduce the number of customer support tickets that you might come across.
It will be easier for your business to stay afloat and to be productive if you don’t have too many customer support tickets. An effective online documentation system will answer whatever questions your customers might have. This ensures that your support team will be focused more on improving a site and not on helping people.

2. It improves customer satisfaction.
Customer satisfaction rates are often determined by how well people can get answers to the questions they hold. Customers won’t be happy if they don’t think that websites are giving them the help they need. By using an online help documentation system, it will be easier for you to improve upon how satisfied your customers are. These customers will not be too hard to manage. Best of all, they will be happy because they’re getting answers.

3. This allows people to get information at any time.
It can be a challenge to get a 24-hour customer support setup run. You can use online documentation to give people access to the answers that they want at any time of day. You could actually save money as you won’t have to keep a customer support hotline open 24 hours a day. You don’t have to outsource your support system to another country either. Your help documentation system will give people answers without having to call anyone.

4. Online documentation may be easier for people to use.
One problem that comes with getting help on call is that the information isn’t visual. It entails a person simply talking about what can be done. This can be hard to understand depending on the connection. Traditional phone conversations can be challenging. Online documentation tools can alleviate this issue. You can use an online documentation system to illustrate concepts directly and efficiently. Visual illustrations can especially be useful.

5. It is easy to adjust.
You can use programs like online documentation tools to make it easier for your information to be sent out to more people. These tools can especially make it easier for you to adjust information as you see fit. You can use a program to alter information based on outlines, data trees and other forms of organization. This is critical if you have a program or site that can be updated quickly. A program that lets you alter existing information or add new details as you see fit can make a difference.

6. It makes collaboration easy.
Collaboration can make a difference when getting help documentation programs to work. Typical online documentation programs will allow you to interact with other employees and professionals.
This can work, thanks to all the information in an online documentation system being stored on a cloud network. The fact that this information can be accessed through a variety of outside programs like WordPress or Adobe Reader will certainly help too.

7. It helps you see what problems people hold.
Online documentation programs will help you review what problems people might have. You can use these programs to take a closer look at what people are searching for and what questions they are asking. This makes it easier for you to check out whatever questions or issues need to be addressed.

8. It’s easy to search through a help documentation system.
Your help documentation system can be especially detailed and diverse. It can include information on all kinds of topics ranging from how-to guides to details on how to fix problems if they come about. A documentation system can be prepared with a good system where a customer can enter in a proper keyword. This can link the customer to information on the topics that they want to search for. By using this properly, it should be easier for a business to give customers the information they need.

9. Everything in a documentation section can be organized well.
The problems that people might have will vary based on what you are offering. Fortunately, you can use a documentation program to let people learn more about what they are using. A documentation program can particularly be well-organized. You can use a documentation section that has been organized in several pieces. These can be organized based on the key features or services that you are trying to offer online. You might want to establish a clear outline though. This is to help people find what they are looking with for ease.

10. Your SEO ratings may improve.
The final reason for documentation is to make it easier for your search engine optimization ratings to go up. By using the right keywords and points in your documentation section, you can get your site linked to more searches. The unique content in your section will especially be to your overall benefit. If used properly, it will help people out as they will easily find solutions through a search engine. Of course, this can also work with a search engine that is right on your page. This just makes it easier for people to find info.

Be sure to think about the use of online documentation tools for when your website needs help. The documentation that you will use can make a difference when getting customers to feel confident about your products or services. This is especially great if you’ve got a website or product that is detailed.

Why is my blogs revenue so low?

Thursday, June 30th, 2016

Those who blog partly because they want to earn some extra money often ask the question:”Why is my revenue so low?” There are people who think that blogs simply can not generate much money. They are wrong! Blog can generate you the same amount of money if not more compared to any other website. Now im talking about PPC (Pay per click) sources of revenue such as google adsense here.

The main problem I have noticed is that people tend to concentrate on wider markets. If you are running a personal diary kind of blog, the chances are that there are thousands of similar blogs around. The more competition you have, the harder it will be for you to make some cash. Instead try concentrating on smaller markets also known as niche markets. Not only it will be easier for you to develop the traffic, the CPC (Cost per click) should also be higher due to advertisers demand exceeding publishers supply.

Secondly you need to have a unique selling point. You need to give your readers something that nobody else does. This should really help you get returning visitors.

Finally it’s the ads themselves. You should channel your ads. This way you will be able to measure your ad block’s performance. One of the most important things is to experiment. Try different ad formats, colors and positioning. Run your setup for a few weeks, note the performance and try something different. Even if you think you have found the optimum ad setup keep on trying to improve it. In most cases you can always tweak something to make your ad performance better.

19 arrested in China metals exchange investigation

Wednesday, June 29th, 2016

 

SHANGHAI–A total of 19 people connected to a troubled Chinese metals exchange have been arrested, authorities said, after repeated protests by disgruntled investors and as the number of cases of financial fraud rise.

Shan Jiuliang, chairman of Fanya Metals Exchange, which managed around 40 billion yuan (US$6.2 billion) in assets and claimed to be the world’s largest minor metals exchange, was among those accused of illegal fundraising, said a statement on the city government’s news portal in Kunming, where it is based.

Fanya offers investors the chance to bet on increasing metal prices, promising some speculators double-digit returns on their investments.

But with commodity prices plunging worldwide, some of the exchange’s reported 220,000 investors say they have been unable to withdraw funds since April 2015.

The crisis sparked protests in Beijing and Shanghai, with police detaining hundreds of people in the capital.

Nearly 28,000 Fanya investors have declared 7.8 billion yuan of funds unpaid on a national police website set up in response to widening fraud cases in the country, the statement late Wednesday said.

The platform was first activated after peer-to-peer lending firm Ezubao bilked 900,000 investors out of US$7.6 billion by offering high interest rates which it was unable to pay, in what one executive described in a televised confession as a “typical Ponzi scheme.”

In May police also arrested 35 executives and employees of Shanghai-based Zhongjin Asset Management after it failed to make payments of 5.2 billion yuan to its 25,000 investors.
