“One can indulge his or her taste for the exquisite at various price points at the upcoming online auction and all that from one’s armchair or boudoir. The online auction gives clients the convenience of bidding through their mobiles or laptops, without having to trek all the way to where physical auctions happen,” says Jaime Ponce de Leon.

Team Up: League of Legends 101

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Get the lowdown on LOL with FREE INTERNET from Globe at Home Prepaid WiFi!

It is an understatement to say that League of Legends (LOL) is popular—over time, it has grown into the symbol of mobile gaming of today’s generation. The game may be pretty daunting for a newbie but have no fear, we’ll walk you through the basics of what LOL is, and how to build a winning team.

What is LOL?
League of Legends is a free multi-player online (MMO) battle arena computer game available for PC. The game is set on the Summoner’s Rift, where teams have their own base that they must guard while attacking the opponent. The two teams are identified by their colors: the Blue team whose base is on the lower left and the Red team whose base is on the upper right.

Each team has turrets in each of their three lanes that will deal damage to any enemy within its range, and protects a central structure called the Nexus. After a team destroys the enemy turrets on the map, the enemy’s Nexus may then be destroyed to achieve victory.

As a player (or summoner as what LOL players are called), you get to choose one from among hundreds of champions, each with unique strengths and abilities. Each champion has at least five abilities (one passive, three main and one ultimate ability) that can grow stronger through experience, or purchasing items and gold. LoL pairs you with live teammates, so devoting time and being present for the duration of the game is a must.

The road to becoming an LOL gamer

1. Build the teamAs a new player, you have to accept that there is no way to instantly create the perfect team. It is best to look for players who play with synergy—people who work and communicate with each other to emerge victorious.

2. Choose your role
Are you the type of player willing to set the pace of the game? You’re a true born jungler! Or perhaps you are the type who likes working on the sidelines? Then the support role is the way to go! Start setting your roles with your teammates, work on your team synergy and you’re sure to be on your way to victory!
3. Master the game
The key to any successful professional esports career is to fully master the game. Find time to practice more with your team, experiment with various item builds and try out new champion compositions as well as strategies no matter how wild and seemingly unorthodox they may seem. Remember, the best LoL teams came on top because they did something no other team has ever thought before!

4. Shotcalling and Leadership
Shot callers are not a necessity in the team; however, their presence is valuable. This player tells the rest of the team where to go and what to do, asserting leadership and strategy. Deciding who the leader would be in-game is a definite must.

The hierarchy in team building does not suggest one is better than the other, but it serves as a strategy to help the team win more games. Leaders make sure that players understand the team dynamic and make them play their roles to achieve the team’s goal and emerge victorious.

5. Fast Internet Connection
Another necessity to building a winning LOL team is having reliable, fast internet to keep the ball rolling. International broadband speed testing authority Speedtest by Ookla reports that with just a speed of 2Mbps, you can enjoy a smooth, lag-free LOL game, and you can easily get this with Globe At Home Prepaid WiFi.

DOE Seeks More Power Investments in Mindanao

Wazzup Pilipinas!

INVESTMENT DIALOGUE: Participants of the Department of Energy's (DOE) investment forum aired their questions about the regulatory processes, policies, financing and benefits, among other concerns about energy projects in Mindanao. The open forum panel was composed of DOE USec. Felix William Fuentebella, DOE Asec. Redentor Delola, Mindanao Development Authority ASec. Romeo M. Montenegro, Philippine Electricity Market Corporation's  Clares Loren C. Jalocon, National Grid Corporation of the Philippines' Fernando S. Javier, Department of Environment and Natural Resources Director Metodio U. Turbella, Banco De Oro's Joseph Rhoderick B. Lledo and Alsons Energy Development Corporation's Joseph C. Nocos.  Spearheaded by the DOE-Investment Promotion Office, the Mindanao Energy Investment Forum was held in Davao City on Thursday (11 October) to present business opportunities and parameters in dealing with national and local government regarding the industry.

In line with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) goal to promote robust energy development in Mindanao, its Investment Promotion Office conducted the Mindanao Energy Investment Forum (MEIF) on 11 October at the Grand Regal Hotel in Davao City.

The forum provided stakeholders with updates on energy investment opportunities in the region and facilitated discussions on industry best practices.

“A reliable, sufficient and affordable power supply all throughout the country is achieved through the formulation of more cohesive and responsive energy plans and programs. Vital to this endeavor is the partnership with our energy companies who have committed to put up their power plants on time and ensure continuous operation,” Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said in his keynote address, which was delivered by Undersecretary Felix William B. Fuentebella.

Sec. Cusi also emphasized the importance of bringing in more investors into Mindanao given its projected additional capacity requirement of 10,200 megawatts by 2040.

Current projects and initiatives already in the pipeline for the region include the interconnection of the Visayas-Mindanao grids and the implementation of the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market.

The conference also tackled new investment policies, such as Executive Order 30 and the Ease of Doing Business Law, which streamlined regulatory procedures to ensure the faster realization of energy projects.

Anchored on the agency’s E-Power Mo campaign, the MEIF aims to strengthen the E-Secure principle on ensuring quality, reliable, resilient, and affordable energy services across the country. Engaging stakeholders in active dialogue would pave the way for proactive and harmonized planning, as well as proper energy project development operations.

“We all have a significant role to play in the energy industry – investors or energy developers, national and local government agencies, financing facilities including us - the consumers, in order for us to move forward as a one nation," Sec. Cusi concluded.

Delectable Videos (Creating Engaging Videos for Your Business)

Wazzup Pilipinas!

I'm now more into taking videos than writing since it I believe it gives more depth to a story. To be able to personally see an event coverage, or highlight a special feature like a hotel or food review, videos may do the trick better than just words or photos. There's also very little need to rephrase a lengthy speech or give a summary of what transpired. I could just let the viewers watch and let them interpret on their own, while just putting an overview or description of what they are watching.

However, just like food or a destination, we do need to spice up our videos by making it more engaging, thus editing is needed, and of course, they need to be informative and interesting enough so people will stick around watching until the end.

The challenge is to engage our followers so videos are among the content that could attract their curiosity, especially for those who do not like to read.

The aim is to make our videos delectable enough for consumption and should leave the viewers wanting more.

Lamudi's New Lead Management Tool Aims to Increase Broker Productivity

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Lamudi’s Lead Management Tool will help you complete your sales activities, view your communication history and see detailed property and contact records all in one place so you can manage your leads more efficiently.
In today’s rapid digitalization, lead management is crucial in driving any business’ sales, marketing, and customer relationship management (CRM) success. This is especially true in the highly competitive real estate industry.
And as one of the leading innovators of the Philippine real estate sector, Lamudi understands that as consumer demands grow, the technology has to keep up. The company remains true to that commitment with the launch of their newest feature: the Lead Management Tool.
This tool is designed to help property sellers manage their listings, follow up leads, and generate more new business efficiently. As a lead management system, the tool boasts of supportive features with easy-to-understand dashboards and integrations that enable sellers to track their leads and optimize their sales pipeline.  
From customer support to sales, marketing, and inventory management, this tool empowers sellers with an efficient product management solution.

Visualize and track sales opportunities with Lead Tagging
The Lead Management Tool’s Lead Tagging feature offers prospect tracking, where the seller can view prospective buyers who visited their listing and expressed interest. It incorporates lead intelligence collection which helps them discover leads through form submissions and client interactions.
Lead Tagging also helps sellers organize their leads depending on the buyers’ interests and willingness to convert. Sellers can set statuses on their leads to determine which leads are promising, unresponsive, or need follow-up.
Manage client communications with Messaging
What’s great about Lamudi’s Lead Management tool is its ability to record and update the seller’s communication history with prospective buyers through its messaging feature. This enables sellers to manage their relationships with their leads and attend to their inquiries promptly, taking advantage of a powerful automated closed-loop reporting system.
The Messaging feature has Call, Email, and SMS options available at the bottom of each lead section box. The user can view messages exchanged with the lead for all properties they’re interested in. Specific message details such as the sender information, as well as date and time the message was sent, can also be readily viewed.

Nurture lead generation with Lead Profiling
Usually, leads aren’t immediate sales the moment they are generated. Most leads may take time to nurture. With Lead Profiling, the seller can foster such leads and build relationships with prospective clients, eventually increasing its potential for complete sales. With regular, personalized and customer-specific information and conversations, long-term leads will prove more valuable than short-term ones.
Lead Profiles can be edited and updated anytime. They will help sellers remember and log significant information including the lead’s status, client interest, location interest, rooms and price preferences. They can also add a special comment section where sellers can include additional notes or remarks about specific leads. Lead profiling allows sellers to track their target market’s preferences and consumer behavior.
Close more property deals with less effort with Filtration
By using the Lead Management Tool’s Filtration feature, the seller can optimize their sales process with minimal effort by tracking, organizing and improving the user’s sales pipeline.
They can easily filter only the most qualified leads to help them save time and resources. Furthermore, the tool empowers sellers to improve their marketing initiatives by tracking and studying campaigns that yield the highest-quality leads. It also enables sellers to filter leads based on the status of a property listing. This helps sellers target leads that need to be followed up. To maximize time, sellers can also use filters simultaneously with a search value.
With the proper use of Lamudi’s Lead Management Tool, sellers can easily manage, optimize, and effectively market for sale properties without the inconvenience of complex digital processes.
