Social Media Madness

social media madness

How do you keep it all straight?

If you are a business owner, which social media platforms to you jump on and which ones to you bypass?

If you are a web design company (cough, cough), which platforms to you offer to manage for your clients and which ones do you not offer.

We can’t afford to waste our time learning a new platform if it might not stick around. But then if it does turn out to be huge, we’re behind the eight ball.

As of right now, there are only two platforms that every business needs to be be a part of. No secrets here…they are Facebook and Twitter.

But I am sensing a Facebook backlash. There’s no rule that says it must stay popular. Does MySpace ring a bell? Will it still be here five years from now? Most likely, yes, but it is not a given.

Twitter is here to stay. There is nothing else like it on the market…from a technology, sociability and usability standpoint.

And what to make of the new kid on the block, Pinterest? Yeah, it’s kinda cool and kinda different. But will it have lasting power?

Looking for answers? I can’t offer any.

We’ll just keep spinning our wheels.

What is Responsive Design?

what is responsive design

More people are accessing the internet on their mobile devices than ever before. Whether you have a website or a WordPress blog (or both), it is absolutely vital in this day and age that your site looks consistent (and fantastic) on all devices.

Responsive Design is a relatively new concept that refers to building a website so it provides the most optimal user experience on various screen sizes, devices and orientations.

Think about how important this is. You have no idea where your next potential customer is going to be viewing your site. Will he be in his office on a 21 inch monitor? Will she be laying in bed with her 10 inch tablet? Or will he be on the road with his cell phone?

No matter where they are or what device they are looking at, your site must come across consistently, professional and easy to use.

Still not clear about responsive design? View our site and all devices and you’ll get it.

Is your site optimized for all devices? If not, just give us a shout and we’ll be glad to help.
