DOMAIN NAMES! I’m yelling because it’s super important. Picking the right domain name for your site means a lot, and people will notice –or not notice for that matter.  Here are a few tips to (hopefully) steer you in the right direction.  Or, if you’d like, you can completely ignore everything I say and hope for  the best.  The choice is yours.  In the meantime, take a gander at my tips.

DNN Social - Introduction

New DotNetNuke Module - DNN Social

James Nagy 3 8768 Article rating: 5.0

I attended today’s DotNetNuke Webinar on Nebula – now known as DNN Social. We first learned about this exciting product at DNNWorld 2012 so we kind of knew that it was coming. Well, today it was announced and what a great product announcement it was! Navin Nagiah – CEO, and Will Morgenweck – Director Product Management, from DotNetNuke Corporation gave the presentation via Webinar today.

"Every day Internet users share 4 billion items on Facebook, 200 million items on Twitter and 1 billion items on Google+. Social has become a fundamental aspect of Internet life with over 90% of online adults using the social web daily."

For the real people of the world, for the we're not exactly what you'd call millionaires, for the small business owners, for the just starting out-ers: Get Your Money’s Worth!  If you only have $20 to bring to the grocery store, don’t walk in and grab a box of $20 gourmet cookies and walk out.  You don’t have any milk to dip those cookies in, the cookies have nuts and you don’t even like nuts, and for the record –they don’t even taste good.  Your mission was not a success.  On the flip side of that coin, don’t walk in and grab 20 items from the dollar section either.  You don’t need a tiny rubber spatula or mini slinky that will get tangled before you leave the store.  Get what you need.

Mea Culpa Management

The Sprocket Report

Some view the flippant “my bad” as irritating, but at least there’s been acknowledgement and ownership of the problem. Learning how to manage failure may be more important to your business than how to handle success.

Why Go Mobile?

Let’s say you’ve taken my advice by now, you’ve got a successfully running website that is driving traffic to your business. Perfect! Now, let’s talk about taking that next step.  You might be saying to yourself: What’s the point in going mobile? People can still bring me up on their phones if they are searching for me on the internet… To that I would promptly pick you up and shake you. OK, maybe I wouldn’t go that far.  But the appearance of your website is pretty important. Both on AND off the computer. So when a customer visits your site on their phone, if it’s all scattered around, hard to maneuver, or full of information that’s probably not useful to them on the go, they are going to move on.  Their thumbs can only take so much browsing on those tiny screens.  It’s 2013, let’s catch up with the times.  There are hundreds of millions of mobile phone users in the U.S. alone. About 9 out of 10 have access to the internet on their phones. What are you doing to win them over?

Everyone is talking about this new Facebook Graph Search.  Talk makes it seem like it’s taking over the world, slashing privacy to death, and burying Google in the backyard.  But, what’s the real story?  I would show you some great screens shots and walk you through the process… However, we’re going to have to save that for part 2 my friends –as I am still on the waiting list to dive into this particular treasure.  I feel like going on Facebook and really beefing up my profile so they will pick me first for the team.  So what is it, exactly, that all the buzz is about?  What is this search supposed to do and what does that mean for you? Perhaps most importantly, can it help your business?
