Ride in style – Brazil beach cruiser

Welcome to the new WordPress site for Silicon Palms. When installed it said: This is my first post. Edit or delete it, then start blogging! So I left it as it was and started blogging (again). What motivated me was an opportunity to bring some incredible Internet products and services to Brazil.

For years I was an advocate of Movable Type (MT) content management software but a couple of years ago, after Sixapart the parent company was bought by a Japanese tech company, the open source community dispersed. WordPress advanced in quantum leaps in the time that MT was stagnated, the open source community grew to be larger than any other software community online, with hundreds of excellent and practical plugins. Not to mention the massive design community with theme templates and entire frameworks to ride on top of WordPress and achieve outstanding SEO services to accompany the awesome design choices.

Still the point remains the same; how does a small business make money from the Internet, or by using web marketing? This is the most important question and the reason I have rebuilt Silicon Palms website, to turn my attention, once again, back to web development. The business development experts and/or venture capitalists will tell you that the key to success, in any business, is the model to make money – the business model. I’m convinced that I’ve arrived at Mecca when it comes to business models and this site is going to be the vehicle for me to promote the new strategy.

The life-blood of a business is cash flow and the key to cash flow is sales. If a product and/or service can sell itself, than all that needs to happen is marketing and advertising but aside from sex and drugs, most products and services require a concerted, professional sales-team and a strategy, added to an enthusiastic sales campaign. This is what lays in front of Silicon Palms but as they say, before you can work the plan, you need to plan the work – so without further ado – I’m off to launch a new product line.

Please come back soon to learn more about the new improved Silicon Palms. Thanks for taking the time to read this impromptu blog post.
