Relevant Subjects

Relevant Subjects

If you are putting a website together, what you must do before anything is offer value to those who visit your site. Not only for customers, but for new visitors you hope become customers one day. There are certain things that every successful site has that you need right away. Here are just a few of them.

Blog

The first thing you need to do is to look at your site as if you were a first-time visitor. A lot of marketers tend to ignore this, and go into full-on sales mode. They don’t realize that if someone tried to do that to them, they would not like it. Think about what you like and dislike on websites, and let that be your guide.

Blogger

Make sure you have a search box. This can be really helpful for a number of reasons. If someone has found you randomly, they may want to know if your site has the information they need. If they are interested in certain topics, you will be able to find out what they want to know, and ultimately give it to them. >

Offer free or low-cost downloads. People love getting things for free, and if you give them useful information for free, they will like you. Try giving them a sample of what your main product offers, or a sample of the full-price work that you provide. This allows them to get used to your style and to determine without risk whether they want more of what you have to give them.

Marketers

Ask people to sign up for updates or a newsletter. Not only will this allow them to get more of the information they need, a list will allow you to build a group of dedicated visitors who can eventually become valued customers. Treat this list very well, and send them various discounts and special information that you do not share on your site. A list can be one of the most valuable things you have on your entire site.

Price Work

Start a blog. This can be a place where you talk about updates to your site or product, or you can talk about relevant subjects in your industry. This interest people in your services or products, because they become interested in you as a blogger.

Relevant

Have a discussion board. This can be a lot of work, so you may not want to do this until the other parts of your site are set up, but forums and message boards can be a great way for your visitors to talk to you and each other. In fact, they can keep it running without you. Because the conversations continue, everyone has a reason to visit your site every day, which means more traffic for you, and eventually more sales.

Relevant Subjects

Your website needs to do more than display splashy graphics and bold fonts. By heeding the tips in this article, you are going to give your site visitors a chance to build a relationship with you. That relationship will then translate into sales, if you continue to work hard.

    What A Level Subjects Should I Take If I Want To Be A Psychologist? I have to decide what subjects i should take for A level, i thought i might take Biology, Psychology and double health and social care as they all kind of combine and can help me in each subject.

    But was wondering if i needed certain subjects or what subjects would be better to take?

    Thanks.

      Even if you didnt study psychology but got good grades you would still be able to get into university for psychology.

      They have ucas points where a cartain amount of points are given for a certain grade and when you apply for a course it will say how many points you need to get in e.g. 240.

      So it doesnt really matter what subjects you do but it would be more helpful to you if you picked ones that were relevant, i think the ones you have mentioned would be really good and the best ones to do! ?

      1. Give all hope of ever earning a decent wage (seriously).

      2. Do not bother taking a degree in Zoology.

      3. Apply for jobs at zoos, emphasising any experience caring for animals, including household pets.

      4. Failing that, apply for other jobs working with animals, such as holiday pet kennels, dog-walking, pet shop. Or volunteer at a local zoo in your free time.

      5. Repeat Step 3.

      The working degree for an ecologist is a Ph.D. That means four years of undergraduate work and usually around five years of Ph.D. work. Required subjects would be chemistry, physics, general biology, zoology, botany, general ecology, at least a year of statistics, math at least through intorductory calculus, and various ecology courses such as community ecology and population ecology. Geography wouldn’t be relevant.

    Do A Levels Matter When Applying For Postgraduate Medicine? I eventually want to become a Doctor, but due to my lack of effort during my AS year its highly unlikely that I will meet the entry requirements for an undergraduate medicine course, so I was planning to do a degree in a relevant subject (nursing, radiography etc.) then apply for postgraduate medicine, but i’m not sure whether they will place huge emphasis on A level grades?

      You cannot apply directly into ‘postgraduate medicine’ to become a doctor in the UK. Instead you must complete an undergraduate degree in medicine. There is no other way of doing it.

      With that said, you can first of all complete a degree and then apply for graduate-entry medicine (GEM) programmes, which are 4 years long. You don’t even need a medically-related or relevant degree to apply for some of the GEM programmes, and some will (good news here) not even even look at A level grades as part of the entry criteria. They will ask you to sit an entry exam and provide relevant work or volunteering experince in a caring setting.

      The other way is that you can try and apply directly into the 5 or 6 years medicine degree programmes, but ALL of them place a high regard on A level scores.

      You will end up with the same medical degree whichever way you do it. Normally an MB BS or MB ChB, but they are all essentally equal.

      There are other practical things to consider. You could do nursing and then apply for graduate-entry medicine, but this is a more roundabout, longer, difficult and costly way of becoming a doctor.

      Finally…

      ‘…due to my lack of effort…’

      …this is unacceptable if you want to become a doctor via any entry-route. A permanent commitment to long and difficult study is essential.

      Hope this has been useful.

    What Subjects Do I Need To Become A Corporate Lawyer? I’m in the tenth grade in high school and I’m going in for subject selections very soon. What subjects do I need in year 11 and 12 to help me for law school? I am no good at maths or science so those two are out – but what are the other subjects?

      Hey Sarah!

      Kudos on starting to think about this so early on! I wish more law school applicants thought like you–they would give themselves a much greater chance of getting into a top-flight legal institution.

      First things first: The subjects you take in high school will not help or hinder you in law school. For now, just focus on taking the subjects you love. Just to be clear, you won’t be able to attend law school right out of high school. In order to attend law school, you first need to have a four-year college degree.

      Once you’re in college, then you can start thinking about subjects that may help you as you pursue your corporate law goals; however, keep in mind that even those subjects won’t be that relevant–you’ll learn what you need to know about corporate law when you’re in law school, and not really before.

      What you can start to do now, if you want to get somewhat of a head start, is taking subjects that will help you build your reading, writing, and research skills. Those skills will come in handy both during college and law school.

      I hope that helped!

    Can I Teach If My Relevant Subject Is My Minor? I’m working on a B.A. in Asian Studies with a minor in biology. Something I’ve always thought about doing is teaching middle or high school. Would I be able to get the required certification and have a fair chance of being hired for a Biology/Science teaching position with biology as my minor, or would it have to be my major?

      You have to ask your education dept. I think it is possible, but it is best that you major in it and minor in Education.

    Or the same but with English Lit instead of Chemistry

      I think you’d want at least one major essay-writing subject in there. You currently have none.

      What does the website of the university you hope to apply to say? Do they have preferred subjects and/or subjects they’d rather you _didn’t_ have?

    What Subjects Would Be Best For Me To Study Ecology? In my college they have the highers programme where you can study 3 subjects and get your highers grade. These subjects are:

    Biotechnology
    Chemistry
    Drama
    English
    Employability options
    French
    History
    Human Biology
    Managing Environmental Resources
    Maths
    Media Studies
    Modern Studies
    Physics
    Psychology
    Sociology
    Spanish

    I was just wondering what would be the 3 best ones to study if I wanted to go onto Ecology in University?

    Thanks!

      I would suggest Biotechnology,Chemistry,Managing Environmental Resources were the three most relevant subjects to an ecology degree.

      However, in trying to determine what you do with the ecology degree, then maybe you should take these points into consideration:

      Say you decided to work in the media industry within the field of ecology (an investigative reporter for example), then expressing your ideas would be important, so, maybe two science related subjects and an english related subject would be a wise option.

      Or if you wanted to help others getting employment in an ecology related career, then choosing the employability options as well as the more directly relevant subjects would make sense.

      Unless you are completely commited to actual field & laboratory work in relation to ecology then to add on a subject that you can use in relation to ecology as well as expanding your options would, I believe, be a good idea.

      The choices you make would depend on what you propose to do once you have the Ecology degree.

    What Subjects Should I Choose To Do Psychology/therapist? So,I pick my subjects in the next 2 months and this is my plan
    -Spanish,Psychology,Sociology,Geography
    Should I switch Geo out for a relevant subject if I want to be a school psychologist or a therapist?

      The best universities for psychology prefer science subjects, just so you know, and you’ll want to go to a good university for psychology if you want to be taken seriously when applying for post-graduate courses, which is what you need to do to become a psychologist/therapist.

      Pick Biology as one of your subjects.

      Psychology
      Biology
      Geography
      Sociology

      Would be a good mixture of subjects, you don’t need Spanish.

    When Choosing School Subjects…? Should you choose them on which subject you enjoy/are good at or which subjects will be helpful to the career path you would like to take?

    For example,I love and am really good at History,but the job I want really doesn’t involve any history.

      For high school, I took several courses that were not relevant to my career choices today such as dance, art, and photography courses. They are hobbies that I enjoy and they helped me calm down and relax during school hours. It didn’t hurt me in the long run, but actually helped a bit because I could apply the skills I learned from those courses into other projects or assignments. History should be beneficial for you and wouldn’t hurt you in the long run, but also choose courses you believe will help you in the future.

      If you mean for college, then I would reconsider just ’cause it costs a lot of money to take a course. If you really enjoy History then I would suggest making it a minor instead of a major. Taking courses in college just for fun becomes expensive and time consuming.

    Is History Relevant?? How does it bear importance for real-world issues, present day events, current state of society etc…???

    View Comment

      Oh, yes, history is very relevant.

      If you read enough of it, you eventually understand the overall patterns of political power relationships and can see how they repeat themselves (with variations of course!) over and over again. With this insight, you can achieve a deeper understanding of today’s international politics.

      A lot of people get turned off to history because in their beginning courses the have to learn the names of the principal actors of history and the dates of wars. This does not give people much insight into the nature of historical processes and quite understandably turns a lot of people off to historical studies.

      When I was a freshman in college, we had to take a two-semester course on the history of Europe and the ancient world in the Middle East.

      I didn’t get all that much from my first exposure to this material, but I kept on reading other histories of the Western World and other books on special topics, such as the history of Brazil, which I found very interesting–especially in the nineteenth century.

      Eventually I became interested in other historical topics, such as the history of technology, the history of mathematics, and intellectual history, which is an excellent way to get an overall view of the way ideas have shaped civilizations, making it easier to branch out into specialized academic disciplines, such as philosophy.

      By no means am I advocating that everyone should become interested in history. There are all sorts of worthy human activities, such as studying music in detail. But if you can overcome the way high-school introductory courses have turned you off to the subject, I am confident that in time you will be richly rewarded.

    Is Painting And Art Still Relevant? I Love art, and I would like to become a painter, but I’m faced with the harsh reality that computers and technology have basically taken over the art industry. I would love to make a living as an Artist, is there still a place for true hand made art in this world? How is the art industry doing? I honestly dislike a lot of modern Art, I love Renaissance art, Da Vinci and Michael Angelo being two of my favorites of course. Could I manage to live comfortably if one day I just quit my job and start painting for a living? Assuming I’m good of course. How can I make my dream a reality?

      Oh, yes. Painting, and all the other arts are very much relevant to today’s society. It’s wonderful you are drawn to Da Vinci and Michelangelo D’Buonarotti. They tend to show up in a lot of places. Da Vinci’s 559th birthday was this week. And still we love his amazing work.

      If you want to paint realistically, be sure to find a college that teaches that. Most college art history classes begin with Da Vinci, but you’ll have to take at least art history classes in most colleges. Be sure to take some art history classes from other areas of the world to broaden your view of art in the world. That helps you to identify what is relevant to today’s world.

      You can indeed paint realistically and be relevant. That is your journey. As it is for all of us.Your education will give you a foundation to begin this journey.

      If you love art, you will find a way to make money at it. You might keep your job for a while to be sure you are providing for yourself. But once you find your muse, your relevancy, your passion, your issues, you will begin to grow your true art career.

      Technology does have it’s own place in art. Did you know you can do realistic painting in art programs? I have seen some amazing figure drawing, that was printed on a plotter, by students in the art program I was in. You can use computers to produce your work in any style. Or you can produce techo-themed art by painting it, too. The subject matter, materials, and work is yours. It your method, your concepts that create the art, not the machines. They only follow your direction. Doing that is something you could experiment with in school.

      Pursue your dream. As you are just starting, I recommend you look into art festivals. One you can check first is Bayou City Art Festival. Then look into Art Basel in Miami, and any others you can find around the country. Start visiting galleries and museums and asking lots of questions.

      Some newsletters you can subscribe to for free are FlavorPill, and ArtDaily.

      Depends on what you want to study after leaving school , but Religion has limited application and I would replace it with either a science subject or an English subject Speak to your careers teacher for more help.
