Use Power Stories, Not Plain About Us Pages

When I’m asked to review websites and online stores, I usually start by checking the About Us page. Many times I’ve found it to be full of dull boring text, if not totally empty. This is a wrong start to online marketing. Your About Us page should tell a powerful story, a story that will get the reader hooked, your brand remembered, and your values admired.

Put simply, Power Stories are those that will turn prospects into customers, and customers into raving fans. Many business owners make the same mistake, they get caught up telling the world about their services and qualifications, when they should focus on the benefits a customer will get as a result of using their product or service.

Strangest houses can be called a man’s castle and hence he may do with it what he will, but some people turn their normal homes into the strangest of houses. These houses could not be further from a normal suburban house with a white picket fence. The builders of these strange houses were inspired to go above and beyond the normal qualities of a house. They have created some truly beautiful dwellings that double as works of art.

Below is a list of 5 of the strangest houses around the world for you to enjoy looking at and imagine living in them. You never know, maybe looking at strangest houses is what you need to have an idea for what your next house should look like.

Lenovo Vibe Z K910 Review

The Lenovo Vibe Z K910 is a smartphone (or cell phone for our American readers) from Chinese electronics giant Lenovo. The phone was released in late 2013 and currently lists for around $549.99 (or 1600 AED in Dubai, United Arab Emirates). It weighs 145.2 grams, or about 5 ounces, and is 149.1 mm (5.87 inches) in length, 77 mm (3.03 inches) in width, and 7.9 mm (0.31 inches) in height. Although it’s considered a BIG size phone, it uses 2 micro SIM cards.

That makes it still small enough to fit into a pocket easily, despite the fact that the previous elegant Lenovo Vibe X (reviewed earlier) line is smaller. Finally, the Lenovo Vibe Z runs on Android and it used to ship with Android OS, v4.3 (Jelly Bean), which can be easily upgradable to v4.4.2 (KitKat).

Lenovo Vibe X S960 Review

Lenovo S960 Vibe X, the latest mobile phone from Lenovo was sent to me for review. In the beginning, rest assured that I won’t write down a complicated technical review, rather I’ll just list all the things I liked, didn’t like, and those which I should mention in my review here.

If you want a quick review; Lenovo Vibe X S960 is a stylish mobile phone, looker, sleek, shiny, eye-catchy, light, not slow nor fast, with a battery that needs four hours to be fully charged, while 20 minutes of playing a single game brought down the power meter by 11%.
