Sep 4, 2015 | WSJ |By ADAM NAJBERG.

An index capturing the 30 most-valuable Indian software product-makers has risen by 28% in eight months since Oct. 30, a report released by iSpirt, which puts together the index, said Thursday.

These companies, as estimated by iSpirt, were worth a total of $10 billion at the end of June.

“There has been an acceleration since 2010 in the pace of creation of B2B (business-to-business) companies,” the report said.

Membership Experience Not Membership Math
Posted by Amanda Kaiser on Sep 5, 2014

How do you move members away from doing that mental math? How do you make joining less transactional and focus more on experience?

Help members solve more important problems

Our visits to the zoo solve many problems for me. Superficially, we are active and outside – but I can get this at a playground. More importantly, we are having fun and learning something. Most important, I believe that experiences like this can help teach my son those life skills that will help him be well rounded, fulfilled and giving person.

The zoo markets fun and learning but stories from higher up the list of mom’s needs would resonate far more. You see this play out successfully with the big brands. Harley Davidson means freedom not transportation. Coke means youth and fun not sugar water.

You can provide the most value when you help solve your member’s most important problems.

Provide special member experiences

Many member benefits lists read like a math equation: 10% off for members, a $50 savings, and 1 free guest. This is hardly compelling reading and it is not so compelling in the decision making process either. The logic is there but the emotion is missing.

How to help LBMA members package the emotional benefits of joining so that they can be shared back at their companies?

JCK Must Network More!
February 14, 2002 | Owen Gordon
Your last comment notwithstanding, the biggest disadvantage that independents like you have in this day and age is no longer technology faxes, emails, etc.) nor scale: it's reach.You were not afforded the luxury of having a high profile middle to senior management position as your precipice from which to launch into independent consulting from. Therefore, you need formal mechanisms that allow you to “work a room" and eloquent yourself with, oh I don't know. say. 10 new people a month. They're not always going to be key (sorry you didn't run into 10 people who know Medical Transcription cold) but if you keep in peripheral contact, it grows over time. Remember, a whole lot of people who might be useful now lawyers, people who know people with money. people with connected into health-care}, you might have simply ignored 2 years ago if you went to TVG with your Telecom blinders on.
The key to your future success is not about Jerry King in a room with the light bulb going off on the greatest mousetrap or business model or process or strategy that no one else thought of. Regardless of the amount of empirical primary research you do in your room, the odds of you zigging when everyone else zagging is remote. And it's even remoter that you are going to have all the wherewith all and resources to execute from Lyons Ht. Road. The key is people. in fast, someone with half your brains and business sense and no formal post-graduate education might have an easier time getting one of your proposals off of the ground just based on the network effect and the six degrees of separation/Kevin Bacon rule. If TVG isn't offering up those people then fine. But make dog gone sure that you have a suitable replacement that offers the scope and diversity of players under one roof. To hell with the quality of the keynote speakers address.
p.s. if your Carecore thing is starting to move, why don't you form a small board of advisors comprised of people who's judgment you trust - net only w.r.t. the business model but people with judgment who've acted as career coaches for you like Snelgrove, etc. You'd use these people to vet all kind of ideas. "How do i get the first meeting with the top dog at that hospital in Buffalo." "Do I incorporate a separate entity from Carecor and if so, what should I look for. what should be the share ownership structure?" "What are the next hurdles, roadblocks-as that I can expect 3 months from now and how do I begin to anticipate them?

Associations in the Age of the Long Tail - Associations Now Magazine - Publications and Resources - ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership
February 2006 | ASSOCIATIONS NOW | By: Jeff De Cagna and Jamie

Evidence for a new market theory is emerging. Dubbed the "long tail,"
the theory challenges the notion that one megahit with wide popular
appeal is more valuable than tons of other offerings with narrow appeal.
For associations, this means rethinking the very core of the business
