As your company grows beyond its founders and its first generation of employees, ensuring that the intellectual capital, knowledge and expertise that your company is built on is passed on effectively becomes an important challenge. I worked at a company that had a fantastic knowledge base, which was constantly used and regularly updated.
With at least 30 new employees every six months, this vital resource proved incredibly valuable in ensuring that skills were passed on, standards were maintained, and that even the company culture endured from generation to generation. A knowledge base is not just a collection of PDFs in the HR folder – it has to be a system that encourages use, and remains relevant year after year.
If you’re facing the problem of creating a knowledge base for your company, here are a few things to think about as you approach this task.

Loads of Apple fanboys are touting the iPad’s capability, with one marketer taking on the challenge of only using his iPad to do his job for 30 days. But can you run a business that employs several people entirely from an iPad?
The answer is yes, there’s an app for that. Or a suite of apps, rather – nobody has designed a “Small Business Management” app yet, and we don’t expect to see an iPad capable of handling one very soon. However, for most important functions, there is a ready-made solution:
Document management and collaboration – Google Docs
There’s a free Google Docs app, and it does everything a $15,000 server and network can do, only a little slower and less pretty. You and your employees (or selected employees) can access and collaboratively edit as many documents as you please, without it costing you much at all (aside from Google Apps for Business licenses).

If you don’t know what the “cloud” is, you may have a difficult time understand it the way it’s explained. To borrow a quote from Wikipedia, this is how one of the web’s top information sites defines the cloud: “Cloud computing is a metaphor used by Technology or IT Services companies for the delivery of computing requirements as a service to a heterogeneous community of end-recipients.”
To really simplify this for proper comprehension, the cloud isn’t a physical thing per se. It’s a network of applications, platforms and infrastructures, delivering the network, storage, communications, security, monitoring, a database, and other computing basics to your device – accessed by your Internet. Since these many different essentials exist separate of each other but are still simultaneously accessed by you, it’s like everything’s floating around up there in a cloud.
Of course, knowing about the cloud is only half the battle. Are you using the cloud to your full advantage? If not, you may be surprised to learn that there are numerous benefits of using the cloud to run your online business.

Web producers play many vital roles in creating websites which are interesting for their audiences on every possible level. This means they are capable of not only making a site look good but also that it performs well. This involves a lot of factors which need careful planning and organising. A good web producer will know how to drive traffic to web pages and will know how to create an environment which will give visitors a pleasant user experience which entails how the content of the page is presented to them. They will be able to advise which is the best way to put content on a page as there are many different options to choose from and knowing the best one if often a stumbling point for many people who want to create a website.Web producers have good background knowledge of design and technology along with excellent content writing skills. They are capable of bringing all the necessary skills it takes to create, build and develop a website that actually does work on every level. Although, very much like a film producer, they can also employ the skills of a team who are expert in each of these fields and who as a team work together in building a website.
