Handy Effectively Uses Online Onboarding to Cut Costs

December 1st, 2016 by admin

At the start of 2016 CEO, Oisin Hanrahan, was facing a hard time facing leadership team meetings as he would see that his growth strategy was backfiring. Handy was in the middle of allowing professionals to join the on demand cleaning platform that links trade workers to clients. The plan was to create an online onboarding process that would pop up in all 28 markets the platform worked within.

The co-founder of Handy, Umang Dua was not so sure about the plan and had resisted its rollout for the past two years. He was worried that qualified professionals would not complete the application online. They decided to do a test run in Washington DC and Miami, FL in January of 2015. See, https://www.handy.com/cleaning-services/new-york.

They were trying to decide what to do after a year had almost past when they secured $50 million in Series C venture capital funding in November 2015. Suddenly they had more funding but they were also unnerved as many said that they would not invest more at this stage of growth. They thought this may be their last round of funding and decided the best path to profitably was via the online onboarding strategy.

Everything would have been great, but the plan failed with the success rate of onboarding dropping by almost 40%. Handy.com was forced to cancel thousands of bookings as demand for services grew on the platform and the number of professionals failed to grow to match.

They didn’t give up though, they slowly kept rolling out the onboarding process and Handy’s engineers made the self-serve platform easier to use which helped increase the completion rate. By the time the second quarter came around the completion rate was actually 10% higher meaning that Hanrahan did make the right call, even if it did cause everyone to sweat a bit.

This is why these people have a large staff devoted to managing their online profile. The article offered tips from celebrity manager, Jonathan Hay. He has collaborated with a lot of big names in the music industry, says the article.

The first thing that Hay suggests for good online reputation management is that people need to be bold when it comes to their brand. Even when there are scandalous rumors involved, a no-nonsense attitude toward reputation repair in needed, says the article. Hay says that people must stand behind their business and product.

No matter how hard a celebrity or business tries, there are always going to be false rumors floating around the Internet. Hay recommends that people be diligent about keeping their online Reputation Defender intact. The article says that businesses can set up in Google Alert, which will tell them any time their business is mentioned online. The sooner they know about a reputation problem, the quicker it can be resolved, says the article.

When a brand attack occurs, says Hay, it is imperative to find the source of the attack. Sometimes, it is necessary to file a law suit to stop the damage. Hay also recommends using programs like Bing Ads or Google Adwords to fix the problem, says the article.

Before an online reputation attack even happens, it is important to have a plan in place, says Hay. Businesses and individuals can use positive public relations news that will deflect the negativity. When the good outweighs the bad, the public is more apt to concentrate on it. This is the essence of good online reputation management, the article says.

The Inspiational Kabbalah Centre

October 19th, 2016 by admin

The Kabbalah Centre opened in Los Angeles, California in 1984, and is a non-profit organization with over fifty worldwide branches including New York City, Toronto, and London.


The Centre provides schooling online on Kabbalistic and Zohar teachings as well as through its city-based and regional centres and worldwide study groups. Philip Berg is the director and developer of the Centre and he works alongside his wife, Karen Berg. The Kabbalah Centre is made up of international, multi-ethnic staff who teach the Kabbalistic way and offer helpful guidance to students worldwide.


Rabbis traditionally believed that the teachings of the Kabbalah were too complex and too easily misunderstood to be taught to anyone other than mostly male, devout students who were over the age of forty.


The Kabbalah Centre supports the belief that all spiritual beliefs are merely branches of a universal wisdom and resemble the teachings of Kabbalah. The Kabbalah Centre has a strong association with astrology which is a part of Judaism and was studied by Jewish scholars during the Middle Ages. Kabbalah teachings also hold true to the belief that a person should be aware of their relationship with God above all else. In Kabbalah teachings, Light is considered to be the actual essence of God.


The Kabbalah Centre supports the idea that everyone has a connection to the spiritual world of light, as taught by the ancient concept of Klippot, but that it is actually blocked by Klippot, which is a restricting spiritual energy, from entering one’s physical being. It is believed that through vigorous study, one can remove the violence and negative behavior of Klippot.


Some Biblical passages are even thought to be codes to life as well as universal laws which Kabbalists and the Zohar have unraveled throughout history. The Kabbalah Centre has created a series of what is known as the Books of the Bible containing Kabbalistic excerpts to compliment the Torah’s weekly portion.


There is even a celebrity following by the rich and famous such as Madonna, who regularly studies with a Kabbalah Centre Rabbi, Mick Jagger, Ashton Kutcher, Ariana Grande, and Donna Karan.
