Dubai Sports City – Is There A Demand For The Worlds First Sports City? by ProperTeaAt present, there is not much to look at, just numerous signs from the developers showing iconic sporting images alongside the early signs of the construction process. It’s hard to believe that in only a few years time, this dusty part of Dubai on the Emirates Road will become home to one of the worlds premier sporting destinations, Dubai Sports City. So what is Dubai Sports City? Described as a true city of firsts, Dubai Sports City will become the worlds first ‘Sports City,’ a destination totally devoted to sport and all it entails. Over 50 million square feet of state of the art stadia and venues alongside academies from some of sports leading names such as Manchester United Soccer Schools, ICC Global Cricket Academy, David Lloyd Tennis and the Butch Harmon School of Golf. Dedicated to showcasing the very finest that sport has to offer today, and developing the sporting hero’s of tomorrow. In addition to the world class sporting facilities, Dubai Sports City will also include a wide range of residential and commercial developments expected in a world class city. Luxurious properties and world class international schools sit alongside the hotels and first class medical facilities. A true community lifestyle, in close proximity to one of the worlds leading sporting destinations. There are a wide range of properties available in Dubai Sports City, ranging from luxury villas through to state of the art apartments ensure that the city has something to offer every taste and budget. Property developments such as the Cube and the Canal Residences have already been heavily invested in by both investors and residents alike, all keen to be a part of this truly iconic project in Dubai. So is there a demand for Dubai Sports City, and what does the future hold for a project such as this? In order to answer this, it is necessary to evaluate the potential of this project in a number of differing contexts. Firstly, it’s location in Dubailand, in the heart of modern day Dubai, and one of the world’s fastest growing economies. Today, modern day Dubai is a modern, liberal, thriving economy, attracting large levels of investment from overseas as well as increasing numbers of residents from all over the world. Attracted by factors including the tax free status and increasing property values, Dubai is benefiting from one of the worlds fastest growing GDP’s. This consistent growth in both the population and the economy has seen a sustained level of demand for property in Dubai, which seems set to continue for the near future. This demand has seen unparalleled levels of interest in property in Dubai Sports City and key developments in Dubai. The second factor to consideration when looking at the demand and future for Dubai Sports City, is the growth, and increasing affluence of visitors to Dubai. Recent figures released by the Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing in Dubai have shown hotel occupancy rates reaching levels in excess of 85%, with the highest fill rates (over 90%) being found in the 5 star hotel category. To summarise, the increasing numbers of visitors to Dubai (estimated to be approximately 15 million by 2010), are increasingly wealthy with higher levels of disposable income. Iconic and unique projects such as Dubai Sports City will undoubtedly prove highly attractive to visitors to Dubai, as they seek activities outside of the traditional venues of the beach and shopping malls.The third, and arguably most important factor for consideration is the changing face of sport itself, in particular the increasing globalisation of major sports such as golf, tennis and football. Today, the modern day sports fan has access to an increasing array of sports. The advent of satellite television in particular has ensured that a Premier League football match in London may be watched by an audience of billions around the world. Today, Premier League games are regularly broadcast to over 600 million homes in 202 countries throughout the world. This level of access to a wide variety of sports has never been seen before, and is giving birth to a new, wider generation of global sports fan. These global fans, who are spending increasing amounts of money to access sporting events around the world are likely to see Dubai Sports City as a leading global sports venue, offering them access to their sporting hero’s who are usually based thousands of miles away. Already leading sports teams have chosen Dubai Sports City as a future venue for training camps and touring or pre-season matches. Should Dubai successfully bid for the Olympic Games (it is rumoured that they are considering a bid), then the global focus on Dubai Sports City will intensify even further. Given the above factors, it seems that the future is indeed bright for Dubai Sports City, and as the development slowly starts to take shape, it will become an increasingly important part of the global sports landscape.Mark Burns works for Property-dubai.tv, a Dubai based real estate specialist selling property in Dubai including various developments within Dubai Sports City.Article Source: eArticlesOnline.com

Flipboard- Content Marketing Made Easy

Posted by Luis Trevino on November 1st, 2014.

alt

Content marketers have a task of creating and distributing valuable and relative content to the right prospect and at the right time. The objective is driving profitable consumer action by attracting, acquiring, and engaging a clearly defined target audience.

To stay ahead in the content marketing industry, it is important, as marketers, to keep up with industry trends so that your company remains competitive. Arguably, one of these trends is social media.

The social, mobile web has digitized information and allowed us all to connect with anyone, anywhere. When we need information, we can find it instantly.

alt

Flipboard is a social magazine and it is basically a way to look at all the things that your friends are sharing with you across all the different social networks that you use: Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, and Tumblr. Flipboard magazines are beautiful and it allows you to curate and share your favorite articles, photos, videos and audio tracks.

The content is organized in a way that is easy for users to read by using beautiful typography, photography, and pagination. This gives a sense of pacing and flowing rhythm through timelines and stories.

Flipboard is essentially a social media browser. You can jump from feed to feed and everything is organized in a social structure. Flipboard connects to your social networks and gathers all the good stuff your friends are sharing, or you can sign up for a professional magazine and get stuff for free!

This is really what Flipboard is all about. Before starting to create Flipboard magazines, lets understand the basics about how Flipboard works.

You can download the Flipboard app for free at the App Store, Google Play, Window Store, and Amazon App Store. After launching the application for the first time, you will be prompted to pick a few topics anywhere from Politics and News to Sports and Science. Once you pick a few topics, your Flipboard is built and you can instantly start flipping through the pages you care about.

alt

You can search for great content by tapping the popular red ribbon on top right corner. Now, when you search or browse for something on Flipboard that youd like to organize into a magazine, click the plus sign in the lower right corner. You can put this content in one of your previously created magazines or create a new magazine and give it a title.

alt

Flipboard also has a Chrome plug-in that lets you collect items from the web straight into a magazine. The most recent item you flip will become the cover of your magazine. You can go into a different article and promote it as your cover but you can always reset your cover by tapping on Edit and then Reset Cover and that reverts it to the latest item you flipped.

alt

Magazines can be either private or public, and you can create magazines for anything. Also, if you tap and hold an article, you have more options to share via email, SMS, and social media.

There are so many possibilities and reasons why you might want to create a magazine. You might just want to save articles to read later or maybe you are really passionate about something and you want to share your expertise with the world. I know I can always find something on Flip Tech, for instance, and my Flipboard updates when my friends do, so Im never at a loss for something to look at.

alt

Since Flipboard is so heavily social, you can actually leave a comment or like it on Facebook. In fact, whenever someone likes, comments on or subscribes to a magazine, youll get an alert in your notifications.

If you give a Flip about company growth, read up.

A social thunderstorm is brewing. Serious online marketers know that in order to harness the power of social media you need to incorporate the latest innovative marketing tools in your content strategy. Flipboard emerges as the latest content aggregator tool, which leverages the power of content and social media to help elevate your audience and customer base in a dramatic way.

alt

From a brand perspective, by creating magazines on Flipboard, publishers can extend their brand beyond their websites. Brands can flip their products or services into a magazine to create a catalogue, and Flipboard magazines bring this all together in a beautiful customized visual presentation.

Over the past few months more than 60 recognizable brands have launched curated magazines. This includes Callaway Golf, Levi’s and more.

alt

Lets assume you have 500 readers on your magazine. This means that at least half of your readers will potentially share your content unto their magazine, and their own readers might do the same catch my drift? Utilize Flipboard as a content marketing channel in which the content you curate can be strategically gathered to support your branding efforts.

Pareto principle

So, you know that you can build your brand by populating your Flipboard magazine. If you are a restaurant owner and flip recipes into your Flipboard magazine it becomes a cookbook; music turns into a soundtrack and photos become a portfolio.

alt

However, users are less likely to subscribe to a Flipboard that is only dedicated to one brand or message. Its important, therefore, to have a healthy mix of your own brand promotion and related content your customers would want to read and experience.

Ideally, 80 percent of your content is flipped across the web while 20 percent is allotted to brand and promotion.

Since your primary objective is to provide your readers with the relevant information, mix up and balance your content between your own blog and other sites. Flipboard is awesome at doing this and it is one of the must have apps. When you combine the iPad with social media, and from a technological standpoint HTML5, and you bring those things together you have a recipe for amazing innovation and visually appealing content.

Flipboard, with the rise of mobile devices, is an established player in the news aggregation field which is changing . . . rapidly. The company describes its mission as a quest to transform how people discover, view and share content by combining the beauty and ease of print with the power of social media. Flipboard isn’t a blogging platform. It is something entirely different; it is an experience. It’s a way of curating content around your brand to provide added value beyond the usual with beautiful layouts because design matters . . . and Flipboard knows that.

Are Meta Tags Really Dead?

Right in their Guidelines Yahoo Tells You that Meta-Tags are Not Totally Dead and Buried

(The Below Information was Taken Directly From the Yahoo Help File http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/basics/basics-18.html)

Pages Yahoo! Wants Included in its Index

* Original and unique content of genuine value

* Pages designed primarily for humans, with search engine considerations secondary

* Hyperlinks intended to help people find interesting, related content, when applicable

* Metadata (including title and description) that accurately describes the contents of a web page

* Good web design in general

Right in their Guidelines Yahoo States “Metadata (including title and description) that accurately describes the contents of a web page.” By Title MetaData they mean the text between the Tags in your HTML Page. By Description Yahoo mean the actual Meta Tag Name=”Description”. So Meta Data at least as Far as Yahoo is Concerned is Not Dead.

Let’s Examine Some of the Key Points that Yahoo states are important in their help file and see how we can employ some simple methods to meet Yahoo’s Guideline.

Original and unique content of genuine value

Keyword Density of about 2-3%. If your Web Page is Above 500 Words Use a Keyword Density of About 5%. Try to Keep your Web Pages under 750 Words.

Pages designed primarily for humans, with search engine considerations secondary

Yahoo and Google are working hard to get rid of those Robotic Page Writers. Your pages should be fairly well written, It is OK to Optimize for search engines as long as your content is Human Engineered Well.

Hyperlinks intended to help people find interesting, related content, when applicable

Try and have 3 or 4 Links to closely related Content. It is ok to link to other web Pages within in your site but 1 or 2 external links should be mixed in when Possible. Make sure you use your Keyword or Phrase in the Anchor text for your Link.

Metadata (including title and description) that accurately describes the contents of a web page.

Your Title and Description Meta Data Should Accurately reflect your web page Content. Every web page from your site should have unique Title and Description Meta Data. Both Title and description Meta Data should use Keywords and Keyword Phrases. Don’t use the same keyword or phrase directly next to each other.

Title Meta Data

Keep your Title less then 80 Characters if at all possible. Place your Title Meta Data First. Place the exact same Title at the very top of your Web Page Preferably inside the H1 Tag.

Description Meta Data

The Description Meta Tag should appear directly under the Title Meta Data. Keep your Descriptions between 100 and 150 Characters if possible. Your Keyword Density in your Description should be about 10%. Make sure your Description accurately reflects your web page. Where possible the text in your description Meta Data should actually appear Word for Word near the Top of your Web Page.

Power User Super Tip – Where it fits use your description within h2 tags as a Sub Page Header Directly under your title.

Good web design in general

Books have been written about Web Design, Some key points is to make sure your web sites is thematic and pages are related to each other,. For every page you create to target a Keyword phrase have 3 or more (as many as 10 related pages). Either add new pages once or more a week or significantly change current pages. Make your Web Pages easy to crawl. Have a well organized Drill Down Site Map. As an Example if your Web Page is about Real Estate your Site-Map may look something like this

Real Estate Topics

1. Buying a Home
