So Apple had their big media day announcement yesterday where they finally took the cover off the iPad. The best description I’ve heard so far is that it is a 10 inch iPod Touch. Just like the iPhone, it will have a couple of options for storage capacity and an option to add 3G connectivity. The low end model will start at $499 for 16 gig of storage and WiFi only — no 3G. The top end model has 64 gig of storage, WiFi AND 3G for $829.

For 2010, my buzz word is value. I’m including it in everything that I do, deliver, and offer. Some entrepreneurs just don’t understand the concept of value – especially, “internet marketers.” The term sends irritating shivers down my spine. The most successful entrepreneurs know that you can’t just spam, harass, and bully people into buying a product or service . . . you have to offer a value proposition.
What is a value proposition?
Simply put, it’s how you’re going to deliver value to the end user, client, customer, follower, fan, or prospect.
“Literally, what it is the customer gets for what s/he pays. The term is also used to describe some unique value a brand, company, product or service offers that its competitors don’t.”
What if you don’t have customers? Maybe you’re a blogger?
