A Handy Tool Opens and Reads The Contents of Damaged PDF Files

Your PDF viewer may sometimes fail to read a PDF document, displaying that the file is either damaged or corrupted or not a PDF format at all. A PDF fixing utility is much needed to avoid data loss in this situation. Corrupt PDF Viewer shows to the rescue, offering methods to open and view the contents of PDF documents that have been either corrupted or damaged.

corrupt pdf viewer
 

Installer and Portable Versions Available

Corrupt PDF Viewer comes in two editions: an installer version and a portable version. While the first uses a normal installing process, the second comes in a ZIP format that can be stored on a flash drive and used on the go. Moreover, the portable version does not leave any traces in the Windows system registry, as all its preferences are saved in its own folder.

Page Navigation and Manipulation Options

Using Corrupt PDF Viewer is much similar to working with any other regular PDF readers. In fact, the program’s feature set is very similar to that of any other PDF viewer that has no editing buttons. You get navigation tools in the upper toolbar, which enable you to turn to another page easily and quickly, along with zooming buttons to help you view the text up close. In addition, there are viewing tools that enable you to fit the page to the program’s window, delete or rotate individual pages.

Print PDF Pages or Export them to PNG Images

As glad as you may be that you had access to content that might have been lost for good, you should not forget to save it. There are three methods here.

First, Corrupt PDF Viewer enables you to save the corrupt PDF doc as a new, undamaged PDF file. Just click on the “Save” button in the toolbar and set your new PDF filename to do so.

Secondly, the program features printing capabilities, enabling you to print all PDF pages onto paper. Additional options in the Tool menu enable you to cut the PDF’s margins or shrink pages to eliminate margins.

Last but not least, the third way is to export all pages in the corrupt PDF file to PNG images. When doing so, the program prompts you to input the horizontal and the vertical DPI. Each page is then exported to a folder of your setting in PNG format.

Get Access to Lost Data in Damaged PDF Documents

Without a doubt, Corrupt PDF Viewer is a handy utility to have around. It allows people to open damaged or corrupt PDF files and helps them get back access to their lost data and content. It is easy to use, and it enables users to save the corrupt PDF as a new undamaged file, export all the pages to individual PNG images or print them on paper to make sure their data is secure.

How to Learn Digital Marketing The Right Way?

learn Digital Marketing

Digital Marketing is the rage today!


In fact, it has become one of the hottest topics of discussion on a platform like Linkedin.

Especially for the job-seekers, it has become the most sought after career choice today.

The decision seems to be right in my opinion but there is one question which remains unanswered to most of them - 

How to learn Digital Marketing the right way?

What are the top resources to learn Digital Marketing?

How to master Digital Marketing?

What are the career options in Digital Marketing?


Well, today, I am here to answer all these queries and to be very honest, it is all based on my own personal experience. Yes, I have been a digital marketer myself in the past and whatever I am going to share today should definitely help the aspirants.

So, let's begin!


The very first thing you must know is to start step by step. 


Digital Marketing is a very vast field. Some people think that learning can be finished in a day or two. Surely yes, if we are just talking about the basic understanding. But it doesn't stop there. You really need to devote ample time on the same to master the essentials which go beyond the basics.


When I started my career in 2008, the term "Digital Marketing" was unknown to me and I guess to most others. Before the term Digital Marketing, terms like Online Marketing, Web Marketing were more often used and a person was primarily hired for a specific role, not multiple roles in Online Marketing.


Either for the SEO or PPC or Email Marketing.


But as time progressed, there was a surge in demand for those who could handle or manage all aspects of Online Marketing and this is when the term "Digital Marketing" originated. 


A digital marketer thus is required to possess all necessary marketing skills not just limited to SEO, PPC or Email Marketing. Digital Marketing is actually the sum total of all online marketing tactics such as social media marketing, search marketing, and email marketing used for promoting and selling products and services.

So, one thing should be very clear to you. To be a digital marketer, you should work and develop all-around skills including SEO, SMM, PPC, Email Marketing and all other relevant online marketing skills.

Obviously, you cannot mug up these skills in a day or two. You have to first start with one thing and then gradually move towards gaining additional skills. 

And believe me, it is all very easy to learn!

Should I pay to learn Digital Marketing?


Absolutely not!

Why should you pay when you have tonnes free resources available online in Digital Marketing.

You can just pick one good resource and get started with it. Of course, you may have doubt or questions regarding the authenticity of the available material. In such cases, it is better to research the same. Check out for online reviews, public forums, social sites to know more!

I remember I first started learning about SEO in 2008 from this site - webconfs

The site is still active and continues to be one of the top resources for SEO learning at least for those who are just entering into the world of SEO. And best of all, it is completely FREE !!

For more advanced learning, you can check out the free resources available on sites like HubSpot academy, Moz, Search engine journal, Semrush, etc...

Paid resources can also be tried out if it is affordable to you. Some of the top paid resources include sites like Udemy.com, Lynda.com, etc...

I have tried out Udemy.com and I was not disappointed. The site offers tonnes of resources for digital marketers coming from professional experts. You can complete your learning at your convenience and also get rewarded with a certificate in the end. How good!!

Learn Digital Marketing DIY way


Learning by doing is my recommended method in Digital Marketing.

Mastering theory is good as long as you want to clear your exam. But for a thorough grasp and understanding of the subject, you have to think beyond mugging up the theory. 

DIY (Do it yourself) is the way to go!

Let's understand it from one example.

You want to learn about wordpress. You have found one good resource for the same online. You have learned all the basics and advanced concepts. You think it is enough but in reality, it may never be enough when you start working on live projects. 

You should have a practical understanding of how is wordpress installed, how optimal settings are done, how are themes and plugins installed, how to perform wordpress SEO, etc.. 

Until and unless you DIY, your learning can never be complete.

The best way to DIY is to create a local learning environment.

You can create online user accounts to implement and test your SEO skills. For example, you can create blogs on sites like Blogger and Wordpress and use it to gain practical understanding of SEO.

Similary, you can create facebook pages, google ads account, mailchimp account and learn practicaly about facebook marketing, PPC and email marketing respectively.

It was the same case with me. I started learning by doing and it really paid off well in the end!

Making your career in Digital Marketing


No doubt, Digital Marketing offers a great career opportunity today!

Some of the career options which I often see available today are:
  • Digital Marketing Executive
  • Digital Marketing Manager
  • SEO Manager
  • PPC Expert
  • Social Media Manager
  • Content Writer
And believe me, payscale is really good for the above roles especially if you are employed with the bluechip companies.

You can also work as a freelancer or remotely and make a good earning.

You can get more insights here - Digital Marketing career

Final words...

So as to sum up, there is no secret formula or shortcut to master Digital Marketing. You need to learn step by step and keep moving towards your goal. You need to build and grow your network with the people in the same domain for added benefits. You need to be updated with the latest trends in Digital Marketing and keep your learning focused on the same. Do remember the DIY method. 

If required, find and fix a tutor to teach you the concepts in Digital Marketing. That way you should be able to get all your doubts cleared and queries solved which can definitely boost your confidence and lead you to the success in the long run.

Now, if you still require any guidance or further help with your learning, please feel free to contact me. I will do my best to sort out all your doubts or queries.

Happy Learning!!

A 10,000 mAh Magsafe Battery Pack is Finally Here

In case you didn't already know, the release of the iPhone 12 series brought in the Magsafe wireless charging option, which isn't going away anytime soon. Though wired charging is still faster than wireless charging, nothing beats the convenience of being able to connect and disconnect your phone with one hand.

10,000 mAh Magsafe Battery Pack

10,000 mAh vs 5,000 mAh battery packs

A 10,000 mAh portable charger should be able to charge most phones from 0% to 100% at least twice, as opposed to 5,000 mAh power banks that charge most phones only once. Some 5,000 mAh power banks can't even give your phone fully once. This is because the maximum mAh a power bank holds is not equal to the maximum mAh it can deliver. Usually, around 25% of power is lost during delivery. So a 5000 mAh power bank would output only 3,750 mAh, while a 10,000 mAh power bank would output 7,500 mAh. Taking this into consideration, it is obvious why a 10,000 mAh power bank is preferable.

LuxandLuxy PRO 10,000 mAhMagsafe Battery Pack


luxandluxy pro 10000 mAH battery pack

Introducing the PRO battery pack. This grey lightweight power bank is packed with enough juice to power up your phone. Depending on the phone, it could charge from zero to full, twice or thrice. The wireless charging works with all Qi-enabled devices, while the magnetism only sticks to the iPhone 12 series and Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra because these phones have internal magnets in them. For this battery pack to stick to other phones, it would need to come with an external magnetic plate which you will stick to the back of your phone.

This power bank can charge wirelessly at 15W fast charging, while also able to deliver wired charging through its USB Type-C port at 20W fast charging. This makes it possible to charge up to two devices at once.

wireless power bank

Though thicker than an iPhone 12, the PRO battery pack is slimmer than your finger. This slick design makes it perfectly easy to slide it into your pocket after charging, while on the go. The PRO battery pack is lighter than an iPhone 12. To put this into perspective, the iPhone 12 weighs 5.78 oz, and the iPhone 12 Pro Max weights 7.97 oz, while the PRO battery pack weighs only 5.6 oz.

GET YOUR PRO BATTERY PACK HERE

How many times will PRO Battery Pack charge your phone?

These are the number of times the PRO battery pack can charge some famous wireless charging phones.

iPhone 12 series:

iPhone 12 mini (3.4 times), iPhone 12 (2.7 times), iPhone 12 Pro (2.7 times), and iPhone 12 Pro Max (2 times).

iPhone 8, X, and 11:

iPhone 8 (4.1 times), iPhone 8 Plus (2.8 times) iPhone X (2.9 times), iPhone XR (2.5 times), iPhone XS (2.4 times), iPhone XS Max (2.1 times), iPhone 11 (2.4 times), iPhone 11 Pro (2.5 times), and iPhone 11 Pro Max (1.8 times).

Samsung Galaxy:

Samsung Galaxy S9 (2.5 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 9 (1.9 times), Samsung Galaxy S9+ (2.1 times), Samsung Galaxy S10 (2.2 times), Samsung Galaxy S10+ (1.8 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy S20 (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 20 (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra (1.6 times), Samsung Galaxy S21 (1.9 times), Samsung Galaxy S21+ (1.6 times), Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra (1.5 times), Samsung Galaxy Fold (1.7 times), Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 (1.7 times) and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip (2.3 times).

LG:

LG G3 (2.5 times), LG G6 (2.3 times), LG G7 ThinQ (2.5 times), LG G8 ThinQ (2.1 times), LG G8X ThinQ (1.9 times), LG G8S ThinQ (2.1 times), LG V30 (2.3 times), LG V30 Plus (2.3 times), LG V40 ThinQ (2.3 times), LG V50 ThinQ (1.9 times), LG V60 ThinQ (1.5 times).

Google:

Google Pixel 3 XL (2 times), Google Pixel 4 XL (2 times), Google Pixel 5 (1.8 times), Google Pixel 6 Pro (1.5 times), Google Nexus 4 (3.5 times), Google Nexus 5 (3.3 times), and Google Nexus 6 (2.3 times).

Motorola:

Motorola Droid Maxx (2.1 times), Motorola Droid Mini (3.8 times), Motorola Droid Turbo (1.9 times), Motorola Droid Turbo 2 (2 times), Motorola Moto Maxx (2 times), Motorola Moto X Force, and Motorola Edge+ (1.5 times)

Why you need a wireless power bank?

After seeing the phones listed above, it's quite clear that wireless charging is the future. We should expect the next iPad series will contain Magsafe wireless charging. Because tablets usually have higher battery capacity than phones, it would be obvious to go for a 10,000 mAh power bank. Apple is also planning the release of portless iPhones. This wouldn't be surprising because they did a similar move when they first removed the headphone jack. Being the trendsetters of the phone industry, we can expect that once Apple removes the port from the iPhone, Samsung will follow after along with other big brand phone companies.

Get More Feed Subscribers & Readers For Your Blog at Follow.it

Recently I had switched from feedburner.com to follow.it.

Feedburner as you all must be knowing is a web based feed management service that provides custom RSS feeds and management tools for bloggers, podcasters and other web-based content.
The service can be checked out here - feedburner.com

Feedburner.com was quite popular among bloggers who had found it immensely useful in gaining subscribers and thus readers for their blog.

The thing which had impressed me the most about feedburner was the ability to export all your email feed subscribers to a file which then could be used for email marketing initiatives. You could use your feed subscribers list for guest post pitching, product/service information...and for any other purpose you may like as long as the content resonates with your readers.

Now in April 2021, Google had announced that they would migrate feedburner to new infrastructure but remove "non-core" functionality including email subscriptions, browser-friendly viewing, and password-protection.

So, it actually meant that feedburner will no longer be the same. The essential features are being clipped off which could definitely be a matter of concern for the users of the same. 

I was no exception and so I had to look for the alternative. 

This is where I came to know about Follow.it.

Follow.it is another feature rich feed management system like feedburner. Infact it offers more than what you get from feedburner.

Below are the salient features of follow.it:

  • Increase traffic on your blog
  • Easily get new subscribers for your blog
  • Add feed subscription form on your blog
  • Add beautiful pop-ups to get more subscribers for your blog
  • Define filters to receive the type of news you are interested in
  • Select your preferred delivery channel from multiple channels
  • Easily import your subscribers list from another source like feedburner

Use predefined filters

Plus there are lot of more features for the paid users.

10 Tips to Generate Leads For Your Online Business

Leads are the building block for any business. It is near impossible for any business to grow if it doesn't get enough leads. To ensure regular supply of leads, businesses need to have a robust lead generation system. Though such system may not be feasible for all online businesses, still there are several easy ways to accomplish lead generation goals which can be high value and low investment.

lead generation tips


Here in this write-up today I am going to discuss all such lead generation tips and techniques. Most of these tips are pretty easy to follow for any online business. These tips are based on my previous experiences where I had worked on lead generation role for few online businesses in education and finance sector. Apart from my personal experiences, I have also listed some of the tips after carefully researching for the same online from reputed sources.


I am sure you will find it useful.


So, here you go!


Add CTA in Email Signature


Well, it cannot get simpler than this. All you need to do is to add a Call to Action in your email signature. This Call to Action can be a link to your business landing page or any other page of interest. People can simply click on the link and visit your page without being forced to do so. A really good idea!


Integrate Live Chat Bots


Live chat integration has always been my favorite method of lead generation. It really works wonderfully well in most cases. Now with AI all around us, live chats are getting free from human intervention and thus getting more intelligent and efficient in customer service. A definitely good way to generate lead for your business. 


Here's one example of  live chat bot


Add Hello Bar


Hello Bar is another outstanding tool that can boost lead generation goals for any online business. The tool lets you create beautifully designed customized popups for your site. Its super easy to use and comes with advanced targeting option to let you generate quality leads. 


Check it out here - hellobar


Exit-intent Pop-ups


This technique though known to most of us is still underused. The exit intent technique is a clever little technique to add visitors to your funnel and thus generate leads for your business. Instead of frustrating users with ill timed pop-ups, the idea is to showcase pop-up at the last moment i.e; when a user is about to exit/leave the web page. Using such exit-intent pop-ups, businesses can definitely see a rise in leads.


You can create exit-intent pop-ups using pop-up creating services like poptin, etc..


Linkedin


We all know that LinkedIn is a powerful professional social networking platform. It is a place where all businesses want to be as it lets them perform various activities related to business requirements including branding, hiring,  etc... With so many businesses out there, it becomes an ideal place for lead generation. 


There are various ways to accomplish the same. Some of the ways are:

  • Status updates
  • Article posting
  • Joining groups
  • Adding connections
In article posting, you can simply re-purpose your blogs and publish the same.

Quora

Quora requires no introduction. It is perhaps the biggest repository of questions and answers discussion on the internet. Though not exactly a social network but it is place buzzing with conversations. As someone running an online business, can definitely initiate a conversation by posting relevant questions to the audience and can also contribute by posting relevant answers to the questions asked by others.

And now with features like Spaces, it has become much more effective and powerful place for branding and lead generation.

You should definitely check it out!!

Pre-Launch Offers and Discounts

As a business, you must be readying with product/service launch. You want it to be as successful as possible with the launch being appreciated by your audience and in turn churning out necessary leads. To make it more effective in terms of lead generation, it is recommended that pre-launch offers and discounts are provided so as to increase the engagement and add more and more people to your sales funnel. 

It is a known fact that discounts and offers work wonders in terms of building customers for your business. 

Definitely not to be ignored by any means!

Blogging

Can anything be as effective as blogging? 

Of course not!

Personally I am yet to find anything better than the same. The best thing about blogging is that there is always a scope for something fresh as opposed to stale information. As someone running an online business should definitely take advantage of blogging for branding and lead generation. 

This can be accomplished by publishing quality content and following it up with a prominent CTA. The quality content should fit well in terms of SEO so as to gain maximum traction from the web for your business keywords.

Blogging thus is a super powerful technique for lead generation if done well..!

Video Marketing

Video publishing has become a rage these days. Platforms like Facebook and Youtube are buzzing with the same. And so, its high time for businesses to pay attention on the same and churn out videos on a consistent basis to support their business goals. 

Youtube especially can be highly effective for marketing initiatives as per my personal experience. All you need to know is to create effective videos and optimizing it for the organic search. Lots of resources are available for the same on the web. Just google search.

Apart from Youtube, platforms like Vimeo, Dailymotion can also serve your purpose. You should check it out.

Alos, you should try to produce more and more live videos to increase engagement and thus boost your lead generation efforts.

Free Consultation

People love anything offered for FREE!!

And this is where you should hit hard at-least in the initial phase of your customer journey. One best way to accomplish the same is to offer free consultation. Prior to free consultation, businesses can get all essential details submitted including email, phone, etc.. which can definitely be categorized under Leads. 

The leads can later be nurtured into your sales cycle before they are finally converted into paid customers. 

Free Consultation can be offered via your website, mobile app, etc.. 

All you need is to add a free consultation CTA linked to a signup form where all required details will be submitted by the user before free consultation.

New Corrupt PDF Recovery Tool Repairs PDFs by Data Restructuring

A new freeware tool that repairs corrupt PDF files by restructuring the damaged PDF data.

Today PDFFixer.com released their new freeware tool PDF Fixer, which repairs corrupt and unreadable PDF documents by restructuring the damaged PDF data, rebuilding XREF tables and then recovers those PDF documents back.

PDF is a very common document format on the web of people's daily work. It is a binary coded format generated by virtual printing of various files. Since most of PDF data is compressed, editing PDF files with a text editor will cause data error, or lose part of the data due to network instability during network transfer, which will cause PDF files to be damaged and corrupt. PDF readers and viewers cannot open or repair those corrupt PDF files and would prompt a few error alerts.

corrupt pdf fix recovery tool

PDF Fixer is a free PDF repair utility which repairs the XREF table by reconstructing the damaged PDF data, and then restore these damaged PDF documents into readable PDF files.

Some open source command-line tools such as PDFTK and Ghostscript both have PDF repair functions, but PDFTK can only repair PDF information problems, while Ghostscript can only regenerate XREF tables. Once users need to repair a really damaged PDF file, they will find that neither PDFTK nor Ghostscript can recover the file data, and they will keep prompting reading errors. Unlike these two tools, PDF Fixer analyzes the data that still exists in the entire damaged PDF file, then assembles all the object data and repairs it. PDF Fixer can repair many PDF files that cannot be repaired by PDFTK and Ghostscript.

Features of PDF Fixer

  • Fix unreadable and corrupt PDFs
  • Fix PDF XREF tables
  • Export recovered data to PDF files
  • Auto preview the fixed PDF content
  • Automatically detecting bad PDF documents
  • Batch repair multiple damaged PDF files at once
  • No required Adobe Acrobat installed
  • Portable version available
