I have been trying out all the new features on the New Facebook interface that has just been launched. I have to say I am pretty impressed, for me its not going to take much time to get used to the whole new layout, its clean, crisp and user friendly. In fact, after 10 minutes of using it, I am already feeling ‘at home’ with the new layout. [Read more…]
Normally I hate all these invitations to applications that I get sent on Facebook.com, but this morning I was surprised to see a cool application, that can be used to grow your business, and the bonus is that they actually give you $100 free advertising credit for you business on Facebook.
There is NO obligation to buy anything, put down a deposit, or anything, its great!
I have been using flock for a little while now, and am pretty impressed to say the least. In fact, I urge you to give it a test run. Visit Flock.com to download it for FREE right now!
Firefox is a browser that I really really like, its fast, easy to use and the amount of great extensions available is insane! The main reason I originally stopped using the very crappy Internet Explorer, is because of the way it rendered CSS in websites I was working on. Basically it did, and in some instances STILL displays the CSS incorrectly, making your well designed websites look crappy! This is NOT a problem with real browsers like Firefox and Flock.
One of the most effective ways to convert a customer is to focus on their emotions. Emotional decisions tend to override logical decision making from time to time. You want to tap into that to increase your sales.
Supermarkets do it all the time, and the big companies employ teams of researchers to study human behavior and how to increase sales through ‘mind tricks’. [Read more…]
Some websites really have a tough time getting ranked well on Google / Yahoo / MSN, most of the time its because they are not specific in choosing what keywords they want to be number one for, and then optimizing their site and pages accordingly. Well thats the way I see it anyway.
From my experience, I feel each page on a site can and should be optimized for a specific and different target key-phrase, in order to cover a wide range of related key words and phrases. A big mistake that people tend to make is that they concentrate on only optimizing their home page, and also try to cover ever conceivable keyword combination. Unfortunately the website usually then has a problem ranking well for any of the keywords, and doesn’t get much search engine traffic. [Read more…]
If you had to take a look at the top website listings in Google, Yahoo and MSN, on average its the ‘fittest’ that appear at the top. When someone refers to fitness you normally think of gym, regular exercise, health food, well toned bodies, etc. Having a well toned body and being fit normally involves time, energy and a lot of hard work, and the same is with a good ranking website. The problem with a large percentage of people who want a better body, as well as with website owners, is that everyone wants a quick fix. Everyone wants the end result yesterday already, with the least amount of work, at little or no expense, and they want it to last forever! Well thats not likely to happen anytime soon! [Read more…]
