What made us to think?

So there we were, sitting in a diner we frequently dined at. We used to call the owner “uncle”.The bill came and it looked less that what was usually billed. We asked uncle the reason. He replied, “You are my favorite customers!!!” It felt good, not only the way uncle had thought of us as his “favorite” customers but also his “gift”. It was then we thought, how can we make foodies and restaurateurs connect, reward each other. We reminisced how good it feels,getting something in return for what you enjoy, and a rare thing nowadays in a world where nothing is free. This is the exact moment we conjured up FoodonTips.

Problem addressed by FoodonTips

Bangalore alone has around 8000 restaurants and other metros add up to 40000 restaurants.Indians are really lucky when it comes to availability of tasty food but sadly unlucky in terms of costs. Dining out takes a toll on the wallet. Restaurateurs are also not worthy of blame, they have to charge premium to balance out off-peak hours. Foodontips aims to solve both the problems and makes it a win-win for everyone.

So now you can fill your stomach without emptying your wallet.Comment down your suggestion on FoodonTips to help them grow in their niche.

It is not Anna University its college of Engineering Guindy

Do you know where is Anna University located in Chennai? Then obviously you should know where the College of Engineering campus is located in Chennai ? If you don’t know please go through.

Except Anna University alumni and students, no one knows that red building which flashes in news and newspaper is called College of Engineering, Guindy. Even the first-semester student in College of Engineering, Guindy(CEG) will be thinking he is studying in Anna University but actually he is a student of CEG. We would like to differentiate you between Anna University and College of Engineering Guindy.

Before we introduce College of Engineering Guindy you should know the structure of Anna University.In 1978 Anna University was formed by bringing four existing campuses together

1.College of Engineering Guindy (Main Campus)1794

2.Madras Institute of Technology(Chrompet)1949

3.Alagappa College of Technology(ACT)1944

4.School of Architecture and Planning (SAP)1957.

Since 2011 Anna University became affiliating university holding  engineering colleges under four main category.

1.Anna university’s colleges and campuses

2.Tamilnadu Government Engineering Colleges

3.Tamilnadu Government aided engineering colleges

4.Self-financing colleges.

Now you have to know about College of Engineering Guindy

In 1794 started as a school of survey near Fort.St.George later renamed as Civil Engineering School with an inclusion of civil engineering later became College of Engineering in its new campus Guindy . So before Anna University was formed CEG existed so it’s not Anna University that is the oldest but College of Engineering Guindy which was formed in 1794.

In 1978 when Anna University was formed then Tamilnadu Government made CEG as the main campus with three additional campuses. From then that red building became a symbol of Anna University but actually it belongs to CEG.

The main reason behind this is, the administration building of Anna University where Vice-chancellor of Anna University sits is present inside the Guindy Campus white building in front of Valluvar Statue. Whenever media publishes any news about Anna University they showcase CEG’s red building rather than Anna University’s administration building this created an impact that red building campus is called Anna University.

Even in counselling, you can’t find Anna University as a separate institution to be specific you won’t find Anna University but the very first campus is College of Engineering Guindy with a counselling code 001 so if you are choosing Anna University actually you are choosing CEG which is the dream campus for students from Tamilnadu.

Students will come to know their college name only after admitted into the campus. Like every other college, CEG has a separate motto, separate logo and Dean as the head reports to Vice chancellor of Anna University.

Even if you look at the red building closely it is written as College of Engineering Guindy, not as Anna University .

Hope you are clear now that there is the oldest institution inside the forest and it is called College of Engineering Guindy under Anna University .

This article is written to make the people of Tamilnadu know about an existing campus, not with any other intention.

Lessons we should learn from Vikram

Perseverance and persistence are the problem of young dreamers they want the immediate effect on their work sometimes they get but not every time success needs patience it is applicable to everyone. Who follow their passion in spite of hurdles will be successful it’s a universal fact but the answer to the question how long I have to wait?depends on the amount of work you are putting in and the result you are expecting. You have to be really patient preparing yourself for the big day.Actor Vikram is one of the living examples of perseverance and persistence. He prepared himself for tomorrow rather than worrying about yesterday.

Lessons from Vikram
Forecast and use the opportunities

Right from his childhood he wanted to become a successful actor when he was doing school in Montfort, Yercaud he practiced karate, horseback riding, swimming and also acting which gave him more confidence.

We want to achieve but have you ever thought are we suitable or are we having the skills? If not first we should work on our skills to achieve our dream it’s not the only dream can make it happen. If you want to become entrepreneur first learn it, go and work in a start-up for two years till you get confidence then you go and start.

HardWork Pays

When director Bala offered him a role Vikram shaved his head, lost twenty –one kilogram and grew nails long for the film sethu ,to have sunburnt look Vikram burnt him under the sun for Kasi which got acclaim. Still now he is working hard to be perfect for the role.

First you give then you expect don’t expect without giving spend more time on your passion die for it,it will be hard initially but think of the end, you can’t spell out any name who became success without hard work though it appears like overnight success only people who made it knows how many nights it took for them to reach the place.

Be humble

He is one of the most humble people in the industry though he achieved a lot he still knows he needs to achieve a lot of humbleness will bring good people around you .If you are successful you need not change your attitude it is more important to save your words now than before.

Help others

He has been a brand ambassador of Sanjeevani trust and a school for special children Vidhya Sudha. Vikram also setup Vikram Foundation to provide heart operations for poor, educate poor children and rehabilitate victims of natural disaster. He produced and featured in “spirit of Chennai” a video tribute to the 2016 Chennai flood volunteers.

First, work hard and take from the society once you reached more than enough and better than others start giving back it to the society who really need it.Help others to achieve the same.

How to make your Facebook post reach more people?

This is purely from our very own analysis and how we are achieving more in this. You may have 2000 page likes but whenever you make a post it won’t reach all the 2k users but only 15-20%  it reach around 400-500 people .If you want to reach more people you can try paid promotion to get more reach. Anyone can do this with money but smart marketers never do this they do one step better than normal people. Have you ever thought of how to make your post reach more than the number of page likes? Yes you can there is a possible situation and we realized this.

Since we are in growing path we have only 1.8k likes but whenever we make posts it won’t even reach 200 people.

How to make your post reach more people

To increase the reach we tried paid boosting ,as a result we reached 1196 out of this 496 is organic and 696 is paid we felt happy we reached at least 1000 people though we spent some money.

But when we wrote about “Notable start-ups from Chennai” we reached 2480 users which is more than the number of page likes we have. Then we dived in to the insights we found the number of engagements is more than normal post we read about that then we came to know the more number of engagements you get more number of people you reach.

When we made another post on “Notable start-ups from Anna University” we reached 5.6k which is the highest as said earlier it got more number of engagements like shares,likes , comments and link clicks our objective is to make people to read our article but this will happen only when we reach .if you reach 1000 people 50-60 people will click the post  so it is important to reach more number of audience. When we reached 2k people we had 140 post clicks but when we reached 5k users we got 429 clicks .

how to make your post to reach more number of peopel

How to increase engagements?

The best way is to ask your friends personally to like your post whenever you are posting so your next post will appear in your friends wall automatically you need not to boost not only this it will also appears in his friend’s wall so you can reach more people. Remember it’s not only sharing but liking also help you to reach more.

But don’t nag your friend every time, you make him like by posting interesting things. Make sure your title is catchy to make him like or view.

Is organic promotion better than paid?

From our own analysis we feel organic is much better than paid you can reach more people without spending single penny but some extra efforts. This is not google search results to say both organic and paid are useful.

So be smart in your promotion, If you feel this article is interesting and useful kindly share this with your friends .Please comment down your suggestion on this topic.
