The Compute Stick is about the size of a pack of gum. Personal digital assistants like Cortana and others have been around for a few years now. But you may be surprised to learn that they'll soon be taking a much bigger role when it comes to your business. If you own a small business in the beauty industry, you may want to take a look at getting in on this as soon as you can. Called ModiFace Mirror, it's a photo-realistic skin/makeup simulator that gives customers a look at how cosmetics they are thinking of buying will look when applied. ModiFace Mirror isn't an actual mirror.


Serviced apartments have traditionally faced an uphill battle when compared to more traditional forms of lodging for business travel. In recent years, however, the strong global economy and increased corporate lodging demand has led to a surge of growth for the sector. Still, new evidence sheds some light on the challenges faced by the sector, particularly as growth among corporations is tailing off in the midst of a global expansion by corporate housing providers. The latest annual report from The Apartment Service, a UK-based corporate housing booking agency, found that demand for serviced apartments is still growing overall. The company polled 6,000 corporations, 2,000 serviced apartment operators, and 1,800 agents for the report. Corporations expressed reduced demand growth in the last year, though, although more than half already use serviced apartments for relocations and business trips.


The sector may have reached a "temporary ceiling" as companies are simply using as many serviced apartments as they really need to. The research found a 15 percent drop for serviced apartments in the request for proposal process, signaling that corporates may be satisfied with their lodging mix as it stands today. "Our survey shows that, year-on-year, corporate use of serviced apartments for business travel has fallen by 9 percent, assignment/project working by 18 percent, and relocation by 8 percent," states the report. "We do not believe this is evidence of any decline in demand for serviced apartments. Use by travel management companies and other travel agents, however, is increasing to the tune of 21.5 percent year-over-year growth for project work and 18 percent growth for relocation. What are buyers looking for when they turn to corporate housing?


Cost savings are most important by a wide margin, according to the data. A strong quality of product and appropriate service when there_s a problem follow. Over the next year, more serviced apartments will be booked through agents, travel management companies, and self-booking tools. Fewer will be booked directly on an apartment_s website. The report also delved into the problems faced by serviced apartment providers. Competition, the overall economy, and homesharing were the most pressing concerns for operators. Most providers reported strong upticks in occupancy, daily rate, and average length of stay despite the lack of demand from corporates. The biggest challenge comes from Airbnb and other platforms that can offer a cheaper and more convenient alternative to the traditional serviced apartment.


"The accessibility of homeshare or private rentals as alternatives to both serviced apartments and hotels continues to disrupt," reads the report. "Just over 30 percent of corporates now allow their travelers/assignees to use a short-term rental provider, of which 23.63 percent do so direct whilst 10.53 percent source via their mandated agent. However short-term rental providers are a way off from gaining significant traction amongst corporates. The supply of serviced apartments is still growing in every global region, with the Americas and Europe leading the way on new properties. More than 1 million properties are already available worldwide, representing 23.7 percent growth from two years ago. This may pose problems to the sector as these units come online, pushing down prices due to increased competition. New entrants stand to face a harsher competitive landscape than entrenched players. "Rising supply of new, purpose-built properties will provide extra pressure on rates due to the high cost of real estate and construction despite new apartment stock tending to be smaller," states the report.


With competent property managers, owners can usually earn two times more than long-term rentals, with none of the trouble of self-management. During periods of lower demand guests can spend the additional time to fill your unit whilst it may otherwise be left unused, accomplishing the highest occupancy possible. Improving along with preparing the property for rent, deciding the optimal rental fee, marketing your property effectively plus much more.

When I joined Airbnb as an Experience Designer over a year ago, I was given the chance to build a new service from the ground up. Imagine you could go on vacation for free_your entire trip paid for by earnings from your Airbnb listing. Guests could still book and enjoy your space, which would be taken care of by another host while you travel. As a marketplace, Airbnb relies on a healthy balance of supply and demand from our community of hosts and guests. As our community grows, we must scale in sync with growth in order to keep our occupancy rate in the right range. If our occupancy rate gets too high, it becomes difficult for guests to find the right Airbnb for their travels; too low and our hosts find it difficult to keep their spaces occupied by guests.


We knew that successfully scaling supply at Airbnb meant we had to crack the challenges of hosting to make it easier. Our hypothesis was that if we could accomplish this, perhaps hosting could cross the chasm and become more widely adopted across cultures in our busy, modern world. Ah the beginning_ A greenfield project. A designer_s dream. But also, an incredibly intimidating situation. We stood at a fork in the road. We knew the general direction we wanted to move in, but there were many paths before us. How could we figure out which would be the best to take? One way we reduce ambiguity is to field sacrificial concepts. A sacrificial concept is best described as a raw idea that is visualized to provoke a response from an audience.


We brainstormed three divergent sacrificial concepts around our goal: an Airbnb-branded professional service, a directory of hospitality partners, and a marketplace of hosts from our community. All three ideas were rooted in existing products, research, or past experiments. We then tested those concepts with potential hosts, keeping their descriptions intentionally vague so we could stay as open as possible to the hopes and fears we heard as feedback. We found that people wanted the support of a professional company, but also the attention, local knowledge, personal relationship and entrepreneurial drive that individuals from our host community possess. When picking a professional service, brand matters.


Our brand is trusted, and it was an easy choice to follow that path over the model of property management companies, which can seem too focused on high-volume business rather than personal experiences. Importantly, the idea of individuals co-hosting a space resonated with us and our research participants. It just felt the most Airbnb. When we thought of Airbnb, we looked to our mission and our aspirations_to create a world where people can belong anywhere. Through their amazing hospitality, our hosts connect with travelers in ways no hotel or most property managers can, helping them feel like locals. The marketplace concept just felt right. _ Facilitate personal relationships with trusted individuals.


_ A great co-host is someone nearby and a local expert. _ Align host and co-host incentives. _ Empower co-hosts to be entrepreneurs. We knew the difficulty would be in getting people to ask strangers to co-host their spaces. So we took it to the next step: we had to figure out how it would all work. We looked to analogous experiences for inspiration_ If people can trust a stranger with their dog (e.g. Rover) or their children (e.g. UrbanSitter), there must also be a path toward trusting someone with their home. Out of our sacrificial concepts, analogous inspirations and design principles, we mapped the journey and storyboarded it to visualize an ideal product experience. Then, we prototyped it.


Rough prototypes of divergent models allowed us to explore how a host could go about finding and requesting services from other hosts. It also uncovered what they found useful during their decision-making processes. For instance, our principles dictated that we would have to facilitate personal relationships between hosts and co-hosts, and that a great co-host is someone nearby who is a local expert. Our prototypes explored ways of showcasing each co-host_s unique approach to hospitality, their qualifications and their expertise. It was important for our system to search by location so we could return the nearest available co-hosts. From the beginning we knew it would be incredibly important to get to a working proof of concept as quickly as possible. Because so many of our hosts_ experiences are offline, we needed a working model to facilitate real people matching, enabling hosts and co-hosts to talk and work together.


It would be several months before we could design and implement the components of our service, so in order to test the concept we launched a service prototype in Tokyo. Service prototypes often use roleplay as a tool to simulate the service experience in order to "learn by doing". In our case, we worked with our operations team on the ground in Tokyo to recruit real hosts and co-hosts to prototype our program with us. With our journey map and prototypes as a framework, we hacked together the matchmaking service through emails, forms, and spreadsheets. Our ops team facilitated the matches manually so that we were able to observe and learn from the process. Despite some hiccups with translation, we were learning.


The feedback we received helped us distill our value propositions by understanding what messages resonate and what don_t. It helped us hone in on our service pricing and packaging strategy by understanding what services co-hosts would want to offer and at what price. It also validated our hypothesis that proximity, local expertise and establishing personal connections make the most desirable co-hosts. Over time, we were able to release the features that would form our service, piece by piece. We expanded our pilot program to Toronto, Chicago, and Washington, D.C. By then, the gaps in our product experience were filled. What was once a manual process handled entirely by our ops team was now fully automated.


People could sign up to become co-hosts, and hosts with homes could find and contact co-hosts to request help hosting. Building our new service felt like a startup inside the company. It wasn_t until we had a complete funnel that we were able to really start iterating on it, and nothing validated our product faster than real people in our funnel. No matter how much research we did, the moment of truth came when we started to see the metrics trickle in. That_s when our momentum began to build. At first, we saw only a trickle of inquiries for hosting services, but that trickle quickly became a torrent.


All before we had even began to promote or integrate co-hosting deeply into our core product. These metrics helped us see where people were dropping out of our flow and whether requests for co-hosts occurred as we predicted them. They also helped us understand how Bnb Co-hosts Services would respond to these requests. At the same time, we ran frequent qualitative testing with users to understand why they were doing what they were doing. Using these learnings we were able to run experiments to optimize our funnel, such as redesigning our email templates, adjusting the content for our calls to action, and simplifying our flows. Improvements and adjustments that previously required months of development became weekly sprints, shipping iterative updates on the regular.


Airbnb Co-hosting is still in its early days. While we set out to scale our host community by making hosting accessible to all, time will tell if our hypotheses are up to the challenge. I_m confident in our approach and the momentum we_ve gained_and continue to build upon_ with every iteration and refinement. In the beginning, I thought of this project as a rare opportunity to apply service design methods to a tech company environment. In the end, it was far more than that: we were able to bridge "design thinking" with hacker culture, reconciling design vision with minimum viable product. As a company, our mission is to help create a world where everyone can belong anywhere. Our host community is the key to delivering on that promise. If we_re able to help more hosts connect with travelers, and to help those travelers experience life like locals through this project, I_d say it_s a job well done.

The revenue of the global outsourced services industry rose steadily year over year from 45.6 billion U.S. When two college friends founded Macphun in 2008 and subsequently released their first wildly popular application Cartoonatic - they never would've anticipated the success (and increase in workflow) that they would face. Paul Muzok the founder of Macphun, is responsible for creating a software development company that specializes in providing user-friendly SaaS software to photographers of all skill levels, world-wide. After rave reviews on their debut app, they continued to produce photo-editing apps that consistently top the App Store charts. While their applications were receiving awesome recognition and they grew to over 22 million customers worldwide, they still sought to streamline some of their essential business processes anyway they could.


Kevin La Rue, Macphun. HOW CAN OUTSOURCING HELP YOU GROW? Merrill Matthews of Forbes. Outsourcing is when a company contracts with an outside person or company to provide some product or service, such as bookkeeping, payroll processing or janitorial services, or more complicated functions like marketing or IT services. And families do the same thing when they turn to professionals for major plumbing, air conditioner or car repairs. While outsourcing is typically seen as a maintenance strategy for some immense corporations like GE, Microsoft, Intel, Oracle - it has also recently been popularized as a growth strategy for many lower-level startups that need to prioritize more important areas. Startups like Skype, Slack, Uber, AirBNB, etc., are known for their use of outsourcing processes from coding and development to marketing and customer support.


As stated above, high-quality outsourcing is becoming more and more popular with small businesses, because of the increasing accessibility to technologies that make outsourcing smoother and more efficient. Cost vs. benefits of outsourcing? Now that you've asked all of these questions, it's time to make this guide as comprehensive as possible by simply going down the list. Which Business Processes Should I Outsource? It's likely that you're already outsourcing some of your business tasks like payroll administration or background and criminal checks for employment. And with the points mentioned above, it's easier than ever to outsource nearly any task that you see necessary.
