Research from Cambridge University indicates that a third of people have felt overwhelmed by technology – but children still prefer face-to-face communication:
Professor John Clarkson, director of the Engineering Design Centre at the University of Cambridge and Principal Investigator of the study, said families who had a better understanding of their use of communications technology appeared to have a more balanced and positive relationship with it. “There is much discussion about whether communications technology is affecting us for the better or worse. The research has shown that communications technology is seen by most as a positive tool but there are examples where people are not managing usage as well as they could be.” He added, “it is not necessarily the amount but the way in which it is used.”

I know what it is like to just sit staring at the computer wanting to scream at it!
Do you remember what it felt like when you first dreamed of coming online – the excitement, the anticipation, the possibility?
Your business was meant to give you time and freedom but you seem to be spending more and more time working on it and not anywhere.
I was stumped until I worked with Stacey Myers ………..
Give Your Business A Stacey S.L.A.P.
She has identified four distinct areas that require our attention and a purposeful strategy – that when applied, brings real results. S.L.A.P. stands for:
S: Social Marketing
Social marketing underpins everything; as this is where you meet your readers, build relationships and grow your community.
L: List Building
Interacting with people on your email list is the best way to build relationships. You will be able to do this much faster there than on social media. When you have a list you can also promote your products and other people’s products that you think would be a good fit for your audience.
It is important that people see you as someone that is knowledgeable in your niche. Become an authority by blogging about topics that are of interest, relevance and importance to your readers.
The benefits of having your own products is limitless – you can sell them, give them away in contest and use them as bonuses. Promoting other people’s products is a great way to supplement your income.
