One of the most successful ways to grow your business, or if you are an individual without a business, create and promote your reputation, is to establish a Wikipedia page. The problem with achieving this goal is compliance with the Wikipedia guidelines. It is not just a simple matter of writing material. The contents must reach a certain standard, or they will be flagged.
An app called HERE maps gives another good reason to create that Wikipedia page. This app links nearby locations and their Wikipedia pages to the HERE map, thus allowing a person who is going to a location the ability to learn about nearby businesses. If a person is travelling to Chicago, and they are going to be staying in a certain part of the city, they will pull up the HERE map. It will show the location of every Wikipedia page within the chosen part of the city.
HERE calls this feature Wikipedia Sights, and it is found on its Nearby Sights. When you pull it up, go to the Wikipedia options and locations appear. There is a summary of each Wikipedia page, and then you can always go to the page itself if you want more information. With this feature, users can get all their information without having to switch apps.
One way to make a Wikipedia page work is to employ a company that specializes in writing Wikipedia pages. Such a company can be found at Get Your Wiki. They consult with businesses and individuals on how to create a page, and if a page already exists, how to edit and update a Wiki page. They provide free quotes within 24 hours of contact. The key is their experienced Wikipedia editors who know what it takes to meet the guidelines of Wikipedia, and how to produce a page that will bring positive results for you and your company.
Get Your Wiki is a company offers two other features which can prove invaluable. One is the monitoring service. Anyone can edit a Wikipedia page, so you need to regularly check your page to make sure no one has put false or derogatory information on it. The company monitors edits as they occur to keep your page safe. Another feature is the ability to translate your page into any language. This is valuable if you conduct business in non-English country.
A Wikipedia page is an essential tool in the modern online world and these sources will make it work and keep it safe.
Class Dojo, a company that helps educators effectively communicate with their students and parents, has recently been the subject of several notable magazine headlines due to its success in the education industry. The smart phone and tablet application allows educators to positively influence student behaviors and motivate them toward constructive and beneficial means of learning. The applications also increases parental involvement in day to day classroom activities and plans by encouraging parents to communicate with instructors on a regular basis. A common question that the developers of Class Dojo receive during interviews with publication writers is the inquiry regarding the cause of the success Class Dojo is having in a field that is already heavily populated with educational communication applications and websites. Because of the fact that Class Dojo is now being used at 2 in 3 public elementary schools (which makes Class Dojo’s demand about 62 percent higher than its leading competitors), reporters often want to know why Class Dojo is the favorite among these applications. When the entirety of the Class Dojo system is properly dissected and reviewed, the answer to this question becomes clear.
Class Dojo was developed primarily to be used a tool for more effective communication between teachers and parents. The developers of the Class Dojo application noticed that the lack in parental involvement that they were noticing in schools around the country was contributing greatly to declined levels of academic achievement in elementary aged children. Declining levels of parental involvement in the academic lives of their elementary aged children also contributed to higher rates of behavior problems. The developers of Class Dojo wanted to create a product that would tackle some of the behavior problems that educational professionals often see while simultaneously tackling the root problem of declined parental involvement. By developing an application that includes a rewards system that children respond to positively, the creators of Class Dojo have effectively implemented a system that is multi-faceted in its attempt to handle problems that are frequently presented in educational systems.
Because of this unique system that the Class Dojo developers have created, the Class Dojo application has been implemented in most schools around the country. The implementation of the Class Dojo application has successfully fostered a positive culture in up to 90 percent of the schools in which it is being used. Studies also show a reversing rate of parental involvement in classrooms that implement the Class Dojo application.
