10. #HashtagsonFacebook: Dos and Don’ts:
Well it’s official, no matter how you feel about them –hashtags have now officially made their way onto the Facebook playing field. They are fully interactive; not just a sad leftover symbol copied from a Twitter post. What does this mean for your business?
9. Move It or Lose It
I read blog articles, news stories, and other random web nonsense every day of the week. Some are memorable; some not so memorable. Do you know what I don’t read? That news story you never shared. That blog post that you never put on your Twitter or Facebook? I’ve never read it.
When I started with Sprocket Websites, I learned something very interesting about myself. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I needed to join “I-need-to-start-resizing-my pictures-Anonymous”. I had no clue what I was doing.
7. When is it Time to Redesign Your Website?
There comes a time in every person’s life when they’ve got to ask themselves –is it time to redesign my website? That may not actually be true. The truth is, however, that if you DO have a website and if you ARE invested in it –it is worth a second look every now and then to see if there is actually need to shake things up a bit.
6. My Adventures with UI
I wanted to take some time today to talk to everyone about my challenges with anything computer oriented. I know, it’s crazy; I work on a computer all day long. You should know this about me: from time to time I will google: [insert techy concept here] for dummies. It goes without being said, I have several face palm moments a week.
5. Address Your Address
Occasionally I’ll come in contact with someone out in the cyber world who absolutely shocks me. OK, ‘occasionally’ is putting it lightly. If I send an email asking about the details to a professional event, and CutieGirl152 writes me back, you can probably guess I won’t be coming.
4. Can I Help You?
How did that sound? “Can I help you?” Did you read it in a polite, helpful way? Or maybe you read “Can I help you?” and pictured a big burly man spitting into a tin and cracking his knuckles threateningly… (apparently I have a western movie playing in my head).
3. 4 Things You MUST Keep Updated on Your Site
My extensive experience and qualifications [insert lol] have taught me that there are a few things that are, without a doubt, website killers. I’ve ranted randomly here and there about updating your content. Today, I’m not just slipping it slyly in.
2. Unconventional Networking
More networking?! Yes my friends… more networking. Unfortunately for you anti-socials out there, contacts don’t generally fall out of the sky.
1. Cheat Sheet: Top Social Media Photo Sizes for Your Convenience
After I went off on my tirade about resizing your photos, I kind of left you hanging… For those of you who want to ‘make it’ on all the top social media sites. It would be nice to have a cheat sheet handy of the standard photo sizes for these sites, wouldn’t it?
Now we know exactly what makes you guys tick, which is great for me to start thinking up some popular articles for next year. My big question for you though is, what do YOU want to learn about in the next couple months? What’s on your radar? Social media, Website Building, UI/UX, Networking, Marketing? Give me your big ticket items and let me see what I can fit into this year for you.
By the way, thanks for reading. Page views make me feel less like I’m talking to myself.
