The Role of Information Technology in Modern Life

This is a Guest Blog post by Anyaf.
Referring to information technology in simpler terms of its meaning would mean the entire world of computers – hardware, networking and software among other facets that have developed over the years. This is a sector that is in charge of securing all the information that is procured through this means and then making arrangements for its safe storage and delegation to different departments that may require the same in its area of work.

This is a department that is a part of every large to medium company. Over the years of the growth of IT this department in companies has been in popular demand. It has been given the responsibility of managing the large resources of information generated through research and development or even through the internet exchanges between organizations.

So what exactly is the role of information technology in modern companies? There are scores of information and data generation within each sector of industry and individual companies; this is the result of intensive research and development carried out by such study teams within the organization.

Companies are well known for their huge expenditures in various fields of study that is related to their existing field of endeavor. For instance millions of dollars go into the development of biotechnological concepts and medicines among pharmaceutical companies.

Similar procedures of growth are carried out by telecommunications companies and heavy equipment companies too. As a result of the study information and experimental details along with prognosis of the results are discussed in detail and is also regarded as classified material for any company.

This is where they have invested hugely and would like to safeguard the results till they are safely established in research and patented for safety. Until then its availability could lead to theft of intellectual property and a huge loss in the aftermath.

It is here that information technology offers virtual solutions in the form of small chips or user id and password protected software that would store all such vital information without any chance of been intercepted. There are highly advanced systems developed for screening of the person each time they access it which makes it impossible to break the code and hack it even. In the event of any interception there are software tools to lead you directly to the source and thus the thief.

Information technology has also been incorporated largely in the operations of military and its intelligence. This is a crucial segment of a country’s administration with classified information and intelligence that could bring severe consequences if left unattended. There are software systems and designs that are specially structured for the defense forces of countries to enable highly advanced and secured protection to such details.

The development of systems is very often customized to the needs and requirements of organizations themselves. No two design structures and software are usually made in the same to avoid creation of a prototype. There are different ways of identification with facial mapping and fingerprint access incorporated within these software systems to ensure highly protected access.

    Internet Marketing: 10 Common Mistakes To Avoid

    Hello marketer,

    I have been in the internet marketing world for the past years and during my years as a newbie, I experienced both good and bad sides of it. These through scamming, spamming and more other mistakes that I or someone become a victim of. I almost came to a crash this year when someone hacked into my Facebook account. It took me a long time to recover but I learn my lesson from there.

    The present marketing is exploding with more people joining internet marketing as a new form of making money. Well, there are thousands if not ten of thousands trying to make money online. This new approach and every opportunity created has its errors/mistakes which hinder one from achieving what he/she wants. I have come to learn that the following are 10 common mistakes that should be avoid in your internet world.

    1.Jack of all trades.

    The moment we enter marketing, new and old ways of earning comes our way, and as newbies, we tend to develop 'multiple stream of income' attitude without realizing that it's master-of-nothing type of marketing.

    Multiple stream of income is good but that does not mean you or I promoting every program or opportunity that we think can make us money. Luck is there you can make some few dimes but won't be successful with it because you don't know it, have no success prove of it and experience as well.

    It is recommended that you do what you love doing and you'll have more chances of succeeding with it than promoting something because someone is making money with it. Even the easiest way of making money can be hard to you but simpler to someone else!
    To read more about Jack Of All Trades, my previous article has Some Hints and Tips on how to avoid being master of nothing.

    2. Talk too much about yourself

    Pride comes before fall is what wise men says. The worse mistake you can ever do in your marketing is to boast. Marketers fail to identify how to prove to their clients how they make money from talking too much of themselves. Having too many mouths of yourself is something that should be avoided at all cost.

    You may share how you are getting your $1000 check every month but be careful how you say it because it may mean the opposite of what you meant.

    3. Poor marketing skills.

    Some type of marketings are network, affiliate, internet marketing + etc, but the skill behind these are those that can take you higher or bring you down. A comprehensive skill and knowledge of what you are marketing can take you to the top.

    I have had several discouraging moments when I was beginning to embark on internet personal brand marketing but with time, mentors, much research and learning, I understood the dos and don'ts.

    One of the contributing factor to failure is having poor marketing skills as a marketer. For instance, not knowing where to build list, traffic sources and other forms of marketing.
    It is considered wise before embarking on to do something, learn what to do, how to do it and when.

    4. Focus-less and vision-less.

    Your target audience(market) is what your marketing should be focus on. Marketers who make it online are those who focus and base their visions on their niches and not the general.

    Trying to fill every niche gap is not a good form that you can ever do but mean focus-less and it is time you change by learning to do what you passion for. This is the secret and only sure way to be successful.

    5. Spamming.

    Every company, organization or person is now learning the effects of spams and are now bringing in laws to punish the culprits. Some sites online have strict rules and regulations which guide against spamming.

    Email marketers are prone to being reported as spammers because of the content and amount of information they release out to their subscribers. I am not scaring you away from subscribing to anyone's list but it is good to know what kind of information you are subscribing to.

    Currently, new ones are arising which includes comments, articles and more other spamming ways. So take heed that you don' let your fat ass be on fire if reported to the authority as a spammer.

    It is worth learning not to do then being escort in handcuffs to respond to the charges;). I love to hear none of readers who have read this article to be reported because of anything other than spamming which I touched a little bit of it today. Remember this that it is punishable by law!

    6. Indulging in illegitimate schemes.

    Have you heard of scams? These are illegitimate programs or schemes aimed at luring people to give away their money or anything that belong to them in return of a false promise. Frauds are increasingly becoming plentiful on the internet these days. Most major internet fraud occurs at:
    • Online Auction and Retail
    • Online Business/"Work-at-Home" Schemes
    • Online Investment Schemes
    • Credit Card Schemes
    • And more others

    The best thing is to avoid any illegitimate scheme that may ruin your reputation and will keep haunting you throughout your life. Engaging in them let people not to trust you hence missing out in developing and growing your personal brand as a professional and individual too!

    Newbies are the most affected victims because they can't figure out between legit and illegal programs.

    7. Lack of integrity and respect for others.

    Integrity and respect for others are the assets that every individual need to possess in their life with marketers included. The product or program you promote should have both quality and quantity meaning that it has value to your prospects. The ethics and other codes of behaviors should guide one when dealing with every person one comes across. The mode of communication has impact on how the other person perceive/interpret it and it should be at every marketer's finger tips.

    Examples in collecting personal information like email addresses, names and contacts should be taken care of while explaining to that person how you are going to use or share that information. Otherwise, integrity is crucial and consideration may be taken.

    8. Ignorance kill audience's moral.

    How many times have you tried to avoid or ignore answering an email or comment on your article? One is likely to lose to competitors if ignorance crept it way into the being.

    Every time your audience inquiry about your product, program or about information you provide and you keep on paying your least attention because according to you, it is not worth your respond. It's actually going to kill their interest and make them go elsewhere that they will be given attention.

    9. Inability to meet expectations.

    Customer/client satisfaction is all it need to make likely sales as a marketer. Just look at big firms like the Virgin Group, customer satisfaction comes first and that is the reason behind their success! Your prospect have their expectations that they expect from the product or service you provide.

    This expectation can be quality in your product or service or any other thing. Promises are also other things which test your ability to deliver and meet expectations. Failing to do is your inability to meet your promises and expectations to them.

    For instance, in article marketing, if a writer promise his/her readers an article about lets' say; How To Make Money Online with a free e book, within a day or two, he/she does so within that given period and containing the promise as well.

    10. Plagiarism.

    These days, with numerous information, products and programs, copying and pasting from other sources is becoming a norm for plagiarists. In simple terms, copying others' content which is not yours is plagiarism which means interfering with intellectual and copyright rules and rights.
    This form is common in article marketing and it is against the law and one is likely to be persecuted if found with someone's without permission or credit. Be careful with some resell rights and private label rights because this is where most people claim ownership of others' property.

    To be on a safe side, stay away by not copying others' and always ask permission before publishing any content.

    I now want to hear from you. If you know other common mistakes that you think I haven't include, be free to share them through the comment filed below. I am human and I may not know every corner of the knowledge world and would appreciate to hear from you.

    Are You Hooked To Any Of These 4?

    There are numerous things that hinder us to live the life we dreamed of with majority claiming that lack of money as the main issue affecting them.
    You may be having your 10+ reasons or less as to why you are living this life you have now. Several factors impact our life which may contribute to it either positively or negatively. I want to bring to your notice today some tips which plays a role in shaping our lives. They are:


    You heard it. Right? The way we are brought up plays a major role in how our life would be if we grow. For instance, a child brought up in a quarrelsome family tend to be violence always. A child brought up in a rich family will always want to be in luxury.
    Our parents and relatives are the key players behind our growth and development and therefore, they are the ones initiating our upbringing until we are responsible on our own. Some characters inhibited in us maybe genetic while others are a result of the habits of how we are brought up.
    Some of us falls victims of our parents' actions and are reveal in us whenever we face the world. How about you? Are you still hooked to how you were brought up? If you are, then find out if this was good or bad . A good upbringing is recommended and the best you can do is to improve it while a bad one is what you have to work against it by changing.


    We want to live and experience when life is not against us and feel like leaving the world when it is against us. Sometime, the environment in which we are in determine and direct our lives as well as its future. Poverty for example, has fueled major crimes and other vices which if taken care of well, would have made the people behind these to be productive and conservative members of the society.
    I thank God that even though I was also a victim of poverty, I learned life values and living by its means. Before you proceed with your current life, I want you to check your life and find out if you still hold on to bad things like laziness, ignorance etc and find a solution to them. These are the hindrances that strangle our potential to be better persons in the society.
    If you are exposed to bad life, try your best to be a symbol of change and start with yourself.


    Education is the best provision for the journey to old age says Aristotle. Why are even educated people still committing worse things in life when people thought of them to be doing good? Well, many have their reasons for this but the truth is, education is another thing that controls our life.
    A good education teaches people values and principles which will help one to be successful or live a responsible life.
    Years back, my uncle who was the one catering for my school fess usually criticizes me saying that he was really not sure if I could be able to bring out anything from education. At first, I thought negatively of this after which I later on understood. Anyway, education is a continual provision as you live your life as according to Aristotle, and he is right about that.


    Who is your best friend? Who is that person that you want to hook up with always?
    The person whom we associate ourselves with are also part of our personal brand growth and development. The company we are in us impact on our well-being. If you you want to be a better person in your society, association is crucial and it is wise associating with smarter people who can help you become one.
    I love this saying from Will Rogers; A man only learns in two ways; one by reading and the other by association with smarter people. Even in job life, recruiting companies looks our for individuals who are extra- active individuals and most of these job seekers can be gotten from groups and associations formed by professionals or students who want to engage in other career developing opportunities.
    As an individual, associate yourself with like-minded individuals with whom you will grow and develop together. You never know if these people may unveil to you the opportunity that you have been searching for all your life!
    So association maybe one of the factors which we maybe hooked to depending with the type of people we are associate with.

    Your Success Tips

    • Take heed that you aim at becoming a great member of the society and not someone whom everyone want to get rid of.
    • Be positive always even though life is against you.
    • Make God to be your best friend and he'll shape you to be a wonderful and useful person.
    • Don't limit yourself to what you should know but acquire more.
    • Be in a productive company of people and associate with people who are doing what is good!

    What To Do Next

    5 Ways To Avoid Being Jack Of All Trades

    Recently, I wrote an article about Importance Of Introducing Yourself, which in it, I mentioned something about being in every business program.This spark a heat argument that I decided to write some tips on how to avoid being Jack-of-all-trades today.

    This person according to many mean master of nothing. This master-of-nothing guy is all everywhere doing this and that.He/she promote to you this product and if you have no interest in it, he/she offer you the next and so on appeasing you with all types of programs or opportunities.

    Remember that Jack-of-all-trades is different from multiple streams of income. Many claim that they are doing 'multiple stream of income' when it is all trades; meaning masters of nothing. Before I move on to tell you how to avoid being this kind of person, let me gives you his/her characteristics. Some of them are:

    Characteristics of Jack-of-all-trades

    The following are some of the known behaviors/characters of these individuals.

    1.Are Not Masters of Their World.

    Their desire to do more and more things makes them not to learn/master the world they are operating in.

    2. Ever 'Nomadic' Because They Cannot Be Satisfied.

    Being focus in life is an important trait to have when it come to success. You will never get satisfied if you are looking at every direction!Most of the so called masters-of-nothing individuals find it hard sticking to one or two things in their life, hence, they are ever nomadic meaning they are trying to taste every greener pasture. Does this mean being focus or ambitious?

    3.Don't Care Of Anyone Assigned To Them.

    We learn by reading and association with smarter people. Masters of nothing are not expert in their given world that someone who has been given to their care will be left astray because they don't have the basic skills to teach and help them. A newbie for example assigned to one of these persons will be there unattended to. A client or customer seeking the help of these individuals is never taken care of because they have no time for them.

    4.Are Greedy and Selfish.

    I don't mean to be a critic of these fellow brothers and sisters but the fact remain to be told.All they do is find business or program and wanted to the next one that comes their way. Because they don't possess the skill and knowledge to mentor anyone, worse of all, they even don't care of any person' sake. I hope you have seen some schemes and MLMs to prove this point.

    5.Have No Success Blueprint in Anything They Operate

    Success blueprint defines the difference between masters of nothing and multiple streams of income masters. A person promoting various business programs and earning a consistent income and is successful in most of these multiple income streams programs is the preferable guy that every one should seek to be.

    A Jack-of-all-trades guy, you will find with more than five programs or beyond different programs with which he/she claim to be successful with them. Because they cannot commit their time , effort and money to one thing, success to them is something that they can never experience but instead , you will find them the ones talking the most of it.

    Therefore, to avoid being one, remember these tips to define your way to success and become a multiple streams of income guy and not the other. The following 5 ways will help you avoid being one.
    • Create your niche and commit to it only.
    • Stop being 'nomadic" and stick to it.
    • One man's meat is another man's poison. A business which is good to someone else may not be good to you and is not a success guarantee.
    • Become successful with one; then, use this as a success prove in building or joining your next business/MLM.
    • Become a master of your world and know it corners.

    Hints and Tips

    The world of today is for you and I to make good use of it. It is fortunate of us that we are in this generation where Internet(technology) plays an important roles in our lives and it is best we harness this opportunity. Be patience as you continue with your business and be on the look out of likely trends in business which may boost your business because we are growing and developing everyday.
    Take care also that you are not cheated of your hard-earned cash as there are plenty of fraudsters and con people everywhere who want to poke a hole into your pocket!

    Otherwise, subscribe if you haven't yet so that you don't miss out other great articles that maybe insightful to you. Thanks for your reading.

    Have a blessed and adventurous browsing,
