Make Sure Your Website is Mobile-Friendly with This Handy Checklist

Posted on August 26th, 2015 by Stoney deGeyter

More and more people are moving away from desktop and laptop computer usage and moving into portable devices such as smartphones and tablets. While I don’t believe desktops and laptops will ever be replaced completely, we do have to begin to think outside the old-school design box when it comes to developing and optimizing our websites.

I Know Why Your Blog is a Ghost Town. Do You?

Posted on July 22nd, 2015 by Stoney deGeyter

 

So your posts aren’t getting read.

You’re publishing regularly, you socialize your posts, and you even engage with influencers online. But for whatever reason, your blog traffic isn’t what you hoped. What can you do?

Let’s start with the assumption that your content is good. You know your subject matter, and your posts are truly helpful to the audience you want to reach. Let’s also assume that your writing is easy to read, you add visual appeal to each post, and you’re actively promoting it. Yet given all that, your readership isn’t growing.

You may not know the problem, but I do!

How to Write a Tweet!

Posted on May 13th, 2015 by Glenn Letham

Sounds simple enough right? Jot down 140 characters (max) and hit send, that’s it! Well, indeed that is what most people do, however, it really isn’t that simple, particularly if you expect some engagement. Thanks to the crew at Hootsuite, they’ve reminded us of several important elements that you must consider when crafting a tweet – some good reminders here.

How do I search LinkedIn by geographic region?

Posted on April 15th, 2015 by Dave Taylor

I’m heading to Miami on a business trip and want to line up a few extra meetings with companies in my field. Is there a way on LinkedIn that lets me easily search my network by title and location?

Of all the different social media networks, LinkedIn has one of the most powerful and sophisticated search systems available. Makes sense if you think about it because everyone who signs up on LinkedIn then immediately fills in tons of personal information, including title and geographic location. Better, as people endorse you, they add a rich world of keywords around your profile too, allowing even more powerful search matches so that if your title is “Sales” but your expertise is automotive or boating or similar, both can be matched.

Can I embed a Twitter video on my blog page?

Posted on March 23rd, 2015 by Dave Taylor

I’ve been posting some videos on Twitter. Fun. But can I also embed just the video content on my wordpress blog? Not the whole tweet, just the video.

You certainly can embed either the entire tweet — as it sounds like you know — or just the video you posted on Twitter onto a page or entry on your WordPress blog. For that matter, Twitter offers up HTML embed code so you could theoretically paste that code on any page, even in a signature or email message, a newsletter or a comment on someone else’s site (if they allow open HTML access, which is unlikely, now that I think about it).

Can I embed an image on my WordPress blog by URL?

Posted on February 25th, 2015 by Dave Taylor

I’m just starting with WordPress and want to know if it’s possible to embed graphics and photos by simply linking to them elsewhere on the Internet, rather than having to upload everything?

There’s no question that the most engaging blog posts are those that have images, and that more images (well, within reason!) are better than less images. We’re visual and so photos, pictures, graphics and illustrations are all excellent additions to a blog entry or article. The wrinkle is this pesky thing called copyright. If I include an image here on my site, it becomes my intellectual property and legally I gain a level of copyright protection that helps prevent others from capitalizing on my work and imagery.

Recently, I was helping a client launch a Facebook Advertising campaign that I was going be managing.

How Do I Refollow Someone I Unfollowed on Facebook?

Posted on December 29th, 2014 by Dave Taylor

You are by no means alone in wresting control of your Facebook newsfeed from the algorithms that the system uses to decide what you should find interesting. In fact, since it’s such a self-reinforcing loop, there are times I feel like the vast majority of my Facebook news is from a tiny subset of my circle of online friends. And I’m right. It’s hard to interact with or create “engagement” with content that you never see, right?
