Churn is the basis of the business idea of producing sunflower oil even today, with the right approach, it is of interest from the point of view of investment. Many consider such production to be unprofitable. Now about everything in order and in numbers. A tone of sunflower seeds (that is, raw materials for production) costs $ 480 after processing, we get from a tone with an average yield of 35%, 350 liters of sunflower oil. We can sell it at a price of 1.5 per liter. Total 350 X 1,5 = 525, $ that is, 525 – 480 = $ 45 of working profit. At first, the concept does not look very attractive. $ 45 dirty profit on 1st tone, that’s pretty mean. But not one butter. When processing sunflower seeds, we get two products at the output. This is sunflower oil itself and one should not forget about such a hot product that also produces churn of salted oil like meal, that is, makukha.
Once we have a 35% yield, we get 350 liters of sunflower oil and 650 kg of sunflower meal with one tone. We can sell it even faster, since meal is usually bought not in kilograms, but in whole bags. We sell meal at a price of $ 0.4 per 1 kilogram. Total 650 X 0.4 = $ 260. Agree so much more interesting. Continue reading
I have been a freelancer for almost 4 years. Every day I go to social networks and see a bunch of advertising webinars and free courses on the delights of remote work. It is assumed that thanks to them I will start to earn a lot of money through the Internet and leave for wintering in Bali.
Of the pitfalls and difficulties in this advertisement, of course, not a word. So I decided to talk about them myself. More precisely, to show by the example of the fictional, but quite realistic Vasya, what lies ahead for those who have seriously decided to become a freelancer from scratch and without experience.
So, Vasya. He recently got his first job. Six months later, I realized that a short vacation twice a year, a salary of 30 thousand and a working day from 9 to 18 are not quite what he wants.
After a week of surfing the Internet, for “how else to make money,” Vasya finds a free webinar on remote work. He is led by a guy who lives in Thailand and sets up Instagram ads. This allows him to visit 20 countries per year and not deny himself anything. At least that’s what he says. Continue reading
What do marketers, product designers, business owners, and editors have in common? They all work with problems and test hypotheses to resolve them. However, there are times when professionals concentrate so deeply on problems that they stop thinking about opportunities.
Marginality is falling, readers are massively unsubscribing from the newsletter, no one knows about the new features of the application – such situations can really be confusing. And then the Flip-to-Action method comes into play.
The method was created by Danish product designer Jesper Henriksen. Initially, it was intended for the development of the Customer Journey Map, but it turned out to be workable in other situations. The scheme is based on reframing a problem, generating an idea, and creating a solution sketch.
Of course, there are times when ideas are generated in a continuous stream without special methods or outside help. But what to do when this does not happen? Howl at the moon? Not worth it. Better try Flip-to-Action! Continue reading
