How To Make Traditional Corporations Take Off

Many traditional corporations devote themselves to take off. When it comes to how to take off again, it is thought by many traditional enterprises. However, whatever strategies they turn to, there are always some ways which must be passed, such as electronic commerce, technology innovation and talent intake.

First of all, the electronic commerce is the must way for traditional corporation to take off again. As the fast development of Internet, more and more companies enter electronic commerce field and they expand interior mechanism and mode of corporation further based this platform. Electronic commerce virtualizes the reality into Internet. You may be confused if I say so. Then, take a simple example to clarify this point. If a corporation, such as MH industry co., aims at manufacturing different clothing accessories, then, it needs to make its products datamation depending on electronic commerce, which means product picture, product property, product superiority and applicability. When it comes to product picture, it should highlight the characteristics of product, and its details should be clear and distinct. In addition, exploring the suitable and effective marketing strategies through the platform of electronic commerce is extremely important. The Internet is particular about information datamation, speediness, and convenience. In other words, the networking marketing tactics of traditional corporations should take the clients into consideration.

Then, innovation, especially technology innovation, plays a vital role in the process of taking off of traditional corporations. The innovation is the core spirit of corporations, especially traditional ones. The product innovation is based on technology innovation. Thus, it calls for traditional enterprises to establish the mechanism of technical progress and innovation, and implement brand strategy. After all, the innovation of new products has double functions. On one hand, it can enhance the brand value. On the other hand, it can boost the whole upgrade of the industry. In addition, the innovation is also embodied into integrity system. The corporation without integrity cannot exist for a long time. The traditional corporations should take this aspect into consideration.

Building a powerful talent team is the foundation that supports the development of traditional corporations. Taking in the excellent talents is the first step. Strengthening the quality of talents comes the second. Thus, traditional corporations should take some measures such as providing some preferable welfare, safeguarding their lawful rights and interests actively and so on.

All in all, it is not that difficult for those traditional corporations to take off second if they choose the right and effective channel. What I have mentioned three aspects of taking advantages of electronic commerce platform and technology innovation as well as talent intake should be taken into consideration by every single traditional corporation.

Sensible Economics

by Rayna Gangi

Bailouts, rescue plans and panic attacks. No way to run a country. Some voters blamed the Bush Administration, others blamed the Democratic congress. No one takes personal responsibility, and no one has a true plan of attack. We, as Americans, are all responsible for the recession that’s heading for a depression. Wallets full of credit cards, gas-guzzling show-off vehicles, home mortgages too high for our incomes and get-rich-quick attitudes have landed us in a quagmire. And now we want lifelines. President Bush admitted in his first day in office that he knew nothing about the economy. Most public servants, CEOs, and politicians don’t know economics and rely, instead, on trusted advisers. Most Americans don’t understand economics either. We rely on financial news networks, newspapers, and word-of-mouth advice. The Bush administration was advised that a bailout plan was necessary and needed immediately or the economy would -tank.- He trusted congressional heat to sign an 850 billion dollar plan that never had any checks and balances and was filled with -pork- to get it passed. The Treasury Secretary and Chairman of the banking committee would handle the details. In response, money was channeled into banks and Wall Street criminals, except taxpayer money didn’t fund the banks to ease credit or allow for guidelines. American money bought shares in these institutions giving us, as investors, no say in what the companies do or don’t do to alleviate this crisis. So banks aren’t loaning, insurance companies are on the Riviera, Wall Street is still in a free fall, and CEOs are still getting rich. Fannie and Freddie? These CEOs took millions and then left to help win a Presidential campaign. Even Mr. Bush tried to warn about the disaster of not regulating these two entities, but a Democratic congress wasn’t interested. So now what? More rescue plans? More planned welfare? There are 330 million people in the United States legally. If ever person got a check for one million dollars, the total cost would be 330 million. Each valid social security number over the age of twenty-one would be allowed to do what they wanted with the million. They could save it in banks, thereby replacing bank funds. They could invest in annuities for retirement and insurance for protection, thereby funding the insurance companies. They could buy the car, computer, ipod, and vacations, thereby increasing consumer spending. They could invest in companies that hire only legal Americans and don’t outsource to other countries. They could feel empowered enough to stop pork barrel spending and may even feel powerful enough to remove those in Congress and the Senate who have forgotten who they work for and why. They could get back to truly owning America and being responsible for everything that happens to their country, becoming small and large business owners with a stake in their company’s future. Three hundred million compared to one trillion and rising. Sounds like a plan.

Asia Pacific favoured by British overseas property investors

According to new research by Aviva Investors, British buyers of overseas property currently favour investments in the Asia Pacific region.

The survey revealed that seventy-four percent of British investors expect to buy real estate overseas within the next three years, with the Asia Pacific region being widely regarded as the best area for potential return on investment.

In total, sixty percent of investors who took part in the survey said they were looking to buy in the Asia Pacific region.

Twenty percent of the participants said they intended to buy in the UK. Just ten percent were looking to buy in continental Europe, with the US was favoured by eleven percent.

Key reasons for British investors being attracted to the Asia Pacific region were, Asia’s recovery from the global recession and the growing importance of Asian economies on the world financial stage.

Ian Hally, chief executive for Aviva Investors, commented; “Real estate is a key asset class for long-term investors, but questions have been asked recently about whether there is any value left following this year’s rally in the UK.”

“Asian economies look to be much better placed for recovery than their western counterparts, making real estate investments in the region particularly compelling, which has been less reliant on debt over the past decade at a government, corporate and personal level. This should lead to stronger investor and occupier demand,” he added.

Frank Khoo, global head of Asia investment company AXA REIM, said; “There is no doubt that investors are now recognising that the pace of growth in the Asian property market is likely to outpace that of both the US and Europe. As such, they are increasingly prepared to consider exposure to the region when building up a balanced global strategy.”

According to Singapore based property brokerage Ocean Villas Group (), during the first three quarters of 2010 direct real estate investments in Asia totalled US$46 billion; double the amount for the same period last year.
