Share Your Untold Story - Release. Let it flow. Don't hold back
“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”
― Maya Angelou
It's been a long time since you thought about it, you knew that your write-up would eventually see the light of day, but you still needed a little time to get started. May be you feel you are not prepared enough or you are waiting for the perfect inspiration to write. The inspiration you are seeking is already within you. It's time to unlock the writer within you. Remember, if you wait till you feel like writing, you will never write at all. Write to keep the memory, to testify, to feel lighter, to take stock ... or perhaps for all these reasons at the same time?
Write to keep the memory ... and transmit it!
Last year I met Ms. Marry, a 83-year-old woman who just published her first write-up, when asked about her motivation taking a deep breadth she replied "it's my 6-month-old grandson Alex. Like every Grandma, I want to tell him stories, share with him the family values. Unfortunately, I don't have enough time as I am suffering from some serious illness. However, my thoughts will still reach him through these write-ups". Like Ms. Marry, many want to give their children and grandchildren a record of their own lives. Conscious of the fragility of the memory, they wish to shelter it once for all and for several generations by inscribing it in blogs or in the pages of a book.
The initiative can also come from children. This is moreover the case more and more often. Realising that memory can be lost forever, they encourage their parents or even their grandparents to write their story. A nice gift idea!
Writing can also be an opportunity to portray a picture of a loved one who has gone missing too soon.
The people who write to testify are far more numerous than what we think. It is often a cry of the heart, a need, not only to tell each other, but to share the experience with the world. Most often their purpose is to denounce an injustice or, at least, what they feel is an injustice. The range of testimonies is broad enough: narrative of a battle against the administration, divorce that goes wrong, fight against the disease, etc. Fortunately, some testimonials can relate to a gay reality such as, for example, a beautiful love story or a reunion after years of separation.
Write to feel lighter
There is also the writing that liberates. The one that allows to discharge by putting on paper the thoughts and feelings that are too heavy to wear. So for some of us, writing can be a therapy.
But writing down one's story, especially if it's tragic, takes courage. It means plunging back into the torrent of past pain and reliving it. Events that had been forgotten, or more accurately tried to forget, come to the surface. It is a process that may jostle you, to bring down certainties, to bring you to painful observations, but also, when the work is finished, to feel freer, lighter, more in keeping with yourselves.
Write to take stock ...
For some, writing is a way to take a distance from their experience, to take stock, in a word to see a little clearer. "I'm going to rediscover my past," a gentleman once told me, comparing her pen to the pilgrim's staff.
Write to be reborn
Writing about your life is not an end, it's a beginning! We think that by writing our life, we are putting a final point. Surprisingly enough, it is often the opposite that happens. People reborn after writing their story and even prepare for a second life, filled with the energy they had just drawn from those writings.

Why Wikipedia Prevails Among Any Other Social Media Presence For A Business?
Your business might already have a social media, though considering all the ways to possibly keep in touch with your target audience. Well the question is if your strategy includes Wikipedia?
Should a business have a Wikipedia presence?
Every business that considers marketing a backbone of business, will be working towards having a Wikipedia page. If your business doesn’t have a Wikipedia presence, you are not only living in the past but you have already lost the competition. Or might be there is already, a referral regarding your business, however, you are not being aware of it. In the case it might be of more negligence and harm than giving you any benefits.
When potential target markets of your service have an online search they would search for a neutral content related to your company and they might go straight for the top results that are always Wikipedia. It plays a major role in rapidly informing individuals regarding the newsworthiness, the previous background and cultural appropriateness.
When people look for the digital presence of you and your company any appropriate Wikipedia article will most probably appear in the top rank of the search. If you don’t have a strong article then it can be considered as drastic gap for your brand strategy and people might wonder if your company has a reputation or even existence.
Highlight the core values of your brand
If there is Wikipedia article regarding your brand, though you haven’t paid any attention to you need to reconsider it. There are higher chances that it’s not promoting rather undermining the reputation.
Analyze carefully for the existing article and make your way to evaluating for following things
If there is an unappealing banner at the top showing a message that there is something wrong in the article, often times there are not enough references, or it might be an advertisement. In other cases the banner will reveal some aspects that need to be improved in the article. Having a banner on the top of the article at the end will lead to the deletion of the page by the Wikipedia editor service. Though in most cases, having an article that needs improvement is still far better than having nothing.
Avoid presenting irrelevant or out-mode information
Make sure the article accurately depicts the recent status of the business, if the information is correct and as per the date or if the information is misleading.
If your article has been deleted, Or if someone has added some information that is clearly irrelevant, this is quite different from misleading and is usually done by the middle school student who are bored of their studies.
Support your content with strong references and reliable citations
The next thing you need to look for is the information in the article highly supported by credible mean. Under the citations at the bottom of the article, if there are lesser than 10 references, the article might not be considered well favored by the media coverage. Articles not having notable media reference can be taken for the deletion or may face strong criticism.
Leverage the Power of speech and use a tone that is neutral
Keep reviewing the complete tone of the article and check if the tone is promotional. As it’s not a requirement to appear as in advertising tone. A tone that is neutral is perfect and promises fairness. As a matter of fact without having it similar is trying to openly sell you something.
The perfect Wikipedia editor service provides the reader with very basic information regarding your business or enterprise in a very bland tone. In any case it should not sound like a pitch on your official website or an open advertisement of your business. A quite simple and neutral Wikipedia page makes people desire to go through your website where you have the complete authority of the content and whatever you want your customers to understand.
Once you are done with the reviewing process, and coming across the articles that are well sourced and well written, it’s undoubtedly a big support to your business. If your article lacks in any one or more of the elements of Wikipedia requirement that you need to work on it.
In a nutshell
Wikipedia is aimed to provide knowledge for free to every individual across the planet since everyone is free to make edits but still it has some strict rules that maintains the standards of Wikipedia and on the other hand make it an incredible source to connect with every single person across the world.
It is important to not only learn about the latest tech trends for digital businesses but also adopt them for better service delivery standards and in order to bring down the cost of doing business. Online banking solutions help the banking industry to serve their clients beyond the conventional banking hours. E-commerce websites eliminate the need for shoppers to spend hours roaming shopping malls and physically go from one shop to another in order to find an item that not only they want but also matches their personal taste as well.
It is 2019 and there has been a significant increase in the technologies and how they can help businesses to improve their customer standards. The need to stand out from the competition and acquire more customers without having to compromise on the profit margins have been made easy to achieve because of the technological advancements. Software as a Service - otherwise known as SaaS - are ideal tools that can help businesses to generate better revenues with little to no risk. For example, an Address verification API can help to integrate a technological solution in the online checkout process to deter cases of online frauds.
Better Data Security
One of the biggest concerns that are challenging the current landscape of digital businesses is the ever-increasing number of data breaches. Loss of crucial personal and financial information collected from customers can not only lead to significant loss of customer trust but a lot of bad press that a new venture cannot survive given the huge scrutiny of digital practices that comes with such data breaches.
API based infrastructure works at the heart of SaaS-based technologies and thus the data is only transferred within the servers of 2 respective digital businesses. It means that there is no real danger of losing vital data during transfer from one company’s server to another.
Robust Service Delivery
One of the most notable features of digital businesses is its ability to provide a service standard to its customers that are built on swift data processing and providing services in a synchronized fashion. There are several services and products that are being offered with the help of API driven SaaS products, that mostly involves 3rd party service providers that take help from data packaging and server to server calls in order to make the service delivery standards in line with the demands of modern day standards.
For example, an identity verification SaaS product like Shufti Pro can perform KYC or customer due diligence pretty easily with the help of identity verification or Address Verification API.
No Hardware Requirments
When it comes to individual computing needs, it has been ages since the focus has been shifted from hardware requirements to software needs. This was the sole reason for success for companies like Microsoft and Apple also became such a huge success by developing both ends of technology - hardware as well as software - based on their unique business strategy
But the businesses have been still dependent on the hardware-based resources to meet their technical demands. Software-based resources are still used in relatively lower numbers which means that the cost of maintenance of hardware resources is hitting the ability of businesses to turn a profit. This is where SaaS comes in to save the day with the help of its ingenious and limited need for hardware-based resources. Digital businesses will be able to create better opportunities for converting their opportunities into leads and potential leads into loyal customers with help of SaaS products.
Third party service providers will be able to smoothen the service delivery funnel and resources can be diverted to core business function while the rudimentary tasks such as order management, customer service, identity verification, and many other related business actions can be easily handled by SaaS-based technological solutions.
Digital brands and companies utilizing online resources for better revenue generation have come a long way from nascent stages of business technology. It is about time that integration with other service providers is achieved with the help of SaaS-based technologies. It will not only be cost-effective but also make sure that vital information collected during data processing or customer registration is also kept secure from scammers and fraudsters.
