I never paid much attention to the whole notion of the 10,000 hour rule. You know, the rule that says it takes around 10,000 hours to master something. It just always sounded to me like a random high number someone just pulled out of thin air.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is hot. Not a day goes by without some article about a ground-breaking new AI application. For laypeople – like myself – it often sounds like abstract hocus pocus.

Every site is different. They have different target audiences, different problems and different solutions for those problems. But they have one thing in common: they need a value proposition. If you do it right, your value proposition is going to be one of your best conversion boosters. In contrast to what you might think, visitors to your site often don’t know what your site’s about when they land on it. You would assume they know because you explained in the ad they just clicked on. But not everyone reads your ads. People sometimes just randomly click on stuff without really knowing where they’re going.
