Blog Statistics

Jeff ”why is blog statistics so important for a blogger?”

Mary ‘it indicates whether audience is willing to read the blog or not”

Jeff ”my blog doesn”t get viral”

Mary ”never write blogs to get viral.. it is meant to be read by assured followers who read it because they genuinely like it and not sort of paid likes, paid views etc.. as finally a good content will always sell”

Jeff ”what can I do to improve traffic”

Mary “use categories and tags in wordpress efficiently and keep sharing.. that is all about.. ”

 

TRAFFIC JAMS

I visited a city and found how slowly man can create a man made problem for self

Tom visits a very crowded city in India and is shocked.. A family of 4 having 20 vehicles..

Tom is trying to reach out the popular mobile apps available for cab sharing

Tom gets a cab on time…

Tom ‘hey.. how you manage to be so patient to drive all the way with so much traffic.’

Jambu ‘Sir.. this is more lucrative then BPO job.. so I drive.. but then it is also having no future’

Tom is remembering his investor friend who has a plush bungalow.. 20 vehicles.. 4- 4 wheelers, 6 motor bikes, 5-6 old scooters, scooty,  couple of bicycles

Tom is dazzled

The cab driver is patiently waiting for 5 minutes and slowly slowly driving..

They finally reach the event…

The event manager Ram greets Tom

‘Sir you reached on time.. very good.. event will begin after 1 hour.. many stuck in traffic’

Tom ‘what will happen in 2020’

Ram ‘Government will find some solutions.’

Tom thinks in his mind

‘We talk of driverless car, connected so many things.. but why are we actually behaving literally the same.. mindless directions.. and look at grass root problems and learn to be less materialistic and save scarce resources’

Tom is shaken up by Ram

Ram ‘Sir hot coffee.. do not sleep.. we will begin soon’

After 2 hours

Ram ‘Sir.. all have come.. let us wrap up soon as this city again has traffic jams after 4pm’

Tom smiles..

Tom ‘Yes.. sure.. I will give my 5 minute speech in 1 min’

Tom addresses the participants

Tom ‘I admire your patience and I admire your zeal and I hope and sincerely hope all of you lead healthy pollution free life with my pure air bags… you just need to put it on your nose and inhale and even in traffic jams, you will remain fresh’

All look at each other and begin smiling

Tom ‘straight from a remote island in Northern part of the world.. extremely pure air bags ..  5$ only and it can give you 1 week safe oxygen’

All are silent

Tom is greeted with just silence

Ram ‘Sir.. they all are zapped.. they are calculating how much each family will need to spend on fresh air by 2020’

All begin laughing…

 

Startup Nation

A nation vibrating with enthusiastic investors, enthusiastic startups and over enthusiastic government policy decision makers with an equally vibrant set of advisors and mentors willing to push themselves to the nation..

Comes a question from an entrepreneur

‘will I get debt or equity?’

Pat comes an answer ‘low interest rate debt…’

Entrepreneur ‘Am only seeking equity partnering’

Pat comes a question ‘How much?’

Entrepreneur ‘can dilute 10 to 20% for 1M$ funding’

Pat comes a question ‘how have your done this valuation of your company which is just 9 months old’

Entrepreneur ‘check on my traction.. won best innovation award.. got recommend by best of companies.. also the traffic to our site.. and many things’

Pat comes a question ‘where is the revenue?’

Entrepreneur ‘it will… we are getting multiple offers from investors.. please confirm if you are interested else let us not waste each other’s time’

Pat comes an answer ‘we are not looking for innovation, disruptive ventures.. we are looking for some proven business model.. like say ‘

Entrepreneur ‘this is the problem of this nation.. only imitations.. folks love.. anything innovative lies in some research lab waiting for market..’

Pat comes an answer ‘ROI most important’

Entrepreneur ‘and do you know bankers.. they never take risk at all.. hence government too needs to give guarantee to them for such investments to startups’

Pat comes an answer ‘passion needed by entrepreneur’

Entrepreneur ‘passion.. it is a big joke.. passion without fund sounds good in blog only.. passion with funds sounds good for creating startup eco system’

Pat comes an answer ‘passion without funds.. there is a proof.. 25 years of genuine focus on passion.. started as a story when passion word was correlated to some dating sites and then passion became a concept to groom freshers, then entrepreneurs.. rejected by World Bank to be an unrealistic proposition to aggregate incubators, accelerators, startups, entrepreneurs and developers and then it got into stagnation..

Ahead of times.. MADE in INDIA.. till 2006 happened.. suddenly Incubation Concept and Accelerator eco system mushroomed over a period of time.. As usual Nation imitated developed Nations till even the Nation Leader woke up to build Startup Nation Policy..

PASSION as brand, PASSION as news letter..  Did all till it became a PhD framework.. PASSION FRAMEWORK and now a blog… and much earlier a brand also put in a vehicle..

PASSION is not about just being involved in a venture.. it is about the pain and learnings which comes out of the experience similar to PASSION of Jesus Christ.. and interestingly when PASSION got probed.. it was found that is a fable a popular one way back multiple centuries ago.

So dear viewers PASSION has a history.. a strong history of entrepreneurship experience and I chose to focus on writing blogs in story and poem or entertaining format.. only to facilitate and cover all dimensions of entrepreneurship life cycle.

Of Late, the blogs are of a bit serious nature.. but then behind every happiness, there is a story and behind every mission, there is a purpose and behind every vision, there is a dream and such dreams never come regularly.. just once in a while’

So all investors in Startup Nation need to realize that disruptive innovation is not necessarily technology driven, it can be management driven too.. but where are the takers for investing or believing in such initiatives?

This is also a real story.. not a fiction..

 

 

 

Boost Me

Samuel ‘Boost Me Now… I need to give 1 Million Hits, 75 Thousand Likes and 25 Thousand dislikes’

SEO expert Jane ‘didn’t get your logic.. why would you want so many dislikes’

Samuel ‘else folks will feel, I have paid money for this traffic’

Jane ‘do you wish any comments too’

Samuel ‘obviously.. and please ensure no comments related to my personal life..  My exclusive dating site.. only for that I need this count.. Wish to have all this before my pitch presentation’

Jane ‘but are you willing to pay for this service?’

Samuel ‘I cannot afford dear.. you are my close friend.. hence requesting you.. I can give you a 5% equity in my venture’

Jane ‘but it will cost me much more.. I suggest at least give me 1000$. Leave the rest to me’

Samuel ‘done.. what will be your strategy?’

Jane ‘will launch blind date module within your site. I already have that piece’

Samuel ‘and??’

Jane ‘I have good network professionals.. they only keep liking and disliking blogs or site or give review comments.. Will ask them to personally help them’

Month later

Samuel ‘you made my date.. got invested..’

Jane ‘do you know there are some blogs like PASSION FRAMEWORK which has over 98 country viewership sans any SEO /promotion purely by content..  I suggest you to read some of those blog writeups and promote that too’

Samuel ‘why is their traffic dipping?’

Jane ‘consistently they have been performing for 2 years which is amazing, but even movie watcher traffic decreases in 2nd or 3rd week of release.. and here is good 770 days sustenance.. In nutshell celebrating 108th week’

Samuel ‘do you know those guys?’

Jane ‘fiction world in real world.. just promote it, if you like it’

 

 

Startup Busts

Startup with a 10K

Moving up all the way..

The traffic and its valuation

Moving up all the way..

WE NEED TRACTION.. NO SERMONS

One investor follows other

Startup seeks 1M

Moving up all the way

Hoardings and Media

Talking all the way

Success Stories,

Celebration all the way

WE NEED GROWTH.. MORE TRAFFIC

More and More talks

More and More headlines

Time for Series B

10M what else it wished

WHAT IT CONTRIBUTED BY THE WAY?

Consumer spent.. all the way

Revenue dipped as always

Loss posted still after 5 years

Investors remain happy

as notional money would monetize

it would eventually so why regret

the founder got into conflict

the investor got into shocked daze

is this the reason he invested?

the founder remained uncontrollable

true entrepreneur as he was

not wishing to succumb to investor pressure

is this a bust?

end of that startup?

founder resigned

sleeping under sky

wondering why this race for money

why this race for impact

what is the impact if one person

just next to another cannot

convince each other to work together

and as team create success story.

upmanship and wars taught since child

celebrities worshipped as always

why we create a hero and make him a zero

why she remains inconsistent

the lady luck tosses and keeps you guessing

as the bust could be temporary

good days will come again

once a failures.. still an experience

experience can make you again a hero

a new startup and rest is history.

 

Meet my Investor John

John ‘how are you doing?’

Ram ‘Doing well Sir.. business valuation 3 Billion $. selling every thing at low price’

John ‘excellent.. but what is earning after tax?’

Ram bursts out laughing

Ram ‘common.. Sir.. we had agreed for huge traffic, huge impact.. huge turnover.. so the game was pure valuation one.. now we all knew it would never make profits’

John ‘so who will ever purchase this venture?’

Ram ‘trick is make lesser sales.. and arrive at acceptable valuation.. some hi-fi investors who believe in such impacts will take it’

John ‘Ram.. do you feel we are so ruthless’

Ram ‘I know that..investors too answerable to someone.. but’

John ‘why are we so caught up in millions and billions and forget the real impact.. never understand.. I agree we never grow core industries’
