NeuBible. A Bible app designed for you Action à dividende prioritaire (ADP) Définition d'une action à dividende prioritaire Une ADP est une Action à Dividende Prioritaire. Comme son nom l'indique, l4ADP offre une meilleure rémunération que les actions classiques. En revanche, une ADP ne possède pas de droit de vote : contrairement à une action ordinaire, son détenteur ne peut assister aux assemblées. Avantages de l'action à dividende prioritaire Émetteur Les ADP permettent aux sociétés de lever des fonds sans pour autant ouvrir leur capital. C'est une bonne arme anti-OPA. Actionnaire En ce qui concerne l'actionnaire, l'intérêt de l'ADP est qu'elle lui assure une "bonne" rentabilité. De plus, les ADP présentent un aspect spéculatif : en effet les sociétés simplifient de plus en plus leur capital en rachetant leurs ADP ! Inconvenients de l'action à dividende prioritaire L'inconvénient majeur de ce type d'émission est qu'elle est limitée à un quart du capital de l'entreprise. Incontestablement, le droit de vote est un droit précieux pour l'actionnaire.

Users' Perception of Product Ratings (New Qualitative & Quantitative Findings) This is the 2nd article in a series presenting some of our research findings from our e-commerce product list usability study. Product ratings can be incredibly helpful to users. During our research studies we’ve observed how the test subjects rely on ratings to gauge a product’s quality or value – especially in verticals where they lacks domain knowledge or have little prior product experience. However, for users to be able use product ratings this way two key pieces of information must be present: the average rating score (obviously) and the number of ratings that average is based on. Unfortunately, some sites leave out the latter, much to the detriment of their users. “Okay, it’s only two reviews,” this subject exclaimed after opening one of the product pages, immediately clicking back to the product list, adding: “I think we can drop those ratings. In this article we’ll present both our qualitative and quantitative findings on users’ perception of product ratings.

Réseautage d'affaires – 6 stratégies «Ce n’est pas ce que vous savez qui compte, mais bien qui vous connaissez». Cet adage est particulièrement vrai dans un monde des affaires de plus en plus concurrentiel, où de solides relations peuvent influer directement sur votre rentabilité.

Certains considèrent même le fait d’aller prendre un café avec une relation d’affaires comme une perte de temps. «Vous devez voir cela comme un investissement et non comme un coût. Mme Elliot recommande quelques stratégies pour aider les entrepreneurs à améliorer leur réseautage. 1. Une erreur fréquente consiste à improviser quand il s’agit de réseautage, indique Mme Elliot. Au début de l’année, lorsqu’ils préparent leur plan d’affaires, les entrepreneurs devraient également examiner leur stratégie de réseautage et se poser des questions telles que: Qui est-ce que je veux rencontrer sur une base régulière? 2. 3.

Look and Feel and Feel by Jason Fried of Basecamp Designers often talk about the look and feel of a product, an app, an object, etc. These are good concepts to be talking about, but how the thing feels isn’t really the important feel. The important feel is how it makes you feel. That feeling isn’t usually covered by look and feel discussions. This has recently come into focus for me. I’ve been on Twitter (@jasonfried) for years. I follow just under 200 people. Twitter’s an amazing thing, no question. A few months ago I signed up for Instagram (@jason.fried). Since then, every time I’ve gone back to Twitter, I’ve noticed I’ve felt anxious, unhappy, uncomfortable. Every scroll through Twitter puts at least one person’s bad day, shitty experience, or moment of snark in front of me. Every scroll through Instagram puts someone’s good day in front of me. So now I have a choice… When I have a few minutes to kill, and my phone is in front of me, I almost always reach for Instagram. The Twitter vs.

4 Metrics Every Growth Hacker Should Be Watching The metrics typically advertised by startups are total users, daily active users (DAU), and monthly active users (MAU). While these numbers might be good to share with the press, they are only vanity metrics because they don’t give any real insight into your growth rate or the quality of the users you’re bringing in. Here are 4 metrics you should really be paying attention to if you’re trying to drive sustainable user growth. Daily Net Change – Daily net change tells you on a daily basis how much you’re user base has grown (or shrunk). In a single graph you can assess new user acquisition, re-engagement, and retention and can easily see the impact of each component on your current growth rate. Here is the breakdown of the different components and how they are calculated: New Users: how many new users joined the service today? Reactivated Users: how many existing users used the service today for the first time in 28 days? Net change: new + reactivated – churned Net Change Graph

Designing Settings We spend crazy amounts of time creating personas and charting down user flows. We nail the product to its core and define different usage patterns and provide solutions to the various complexities involved. Often times we know that the one’s who use our products have different preferences, and so we go ahead and give users the ability to configure the product to their usage. Not everything is a setting!

The watch on my phone: what time means to us. Everyday I check the time more than a dozen times — with excitement, boredom, anticipation, anxiety, sadness and joy. About a year ago, my watch stopped working and I got accustomed to using my phone as my watch. My timekeeping experience looked a little something like this. My phone gives me the time, the same way a parking ticket dispenser gives me a ticket at the push of a button. But here’s the thing, I don’t carry around the dispenser everywhere I go, it is not loaded with information about me and my life and it’s safe to assume the dispenser doesn’t know anything about me. Smart watches take these wonderful features from your phone and put them on a tiny space on our wrist. What would it be like if our devices had a more personalized way of communicating time with us? My phone doesn’t make me feel much. In his article, ‘Look and feel and feel’, Jason Fried cleverly points out the importance of the emotional affect that apps can have on people.
