My fiancee Jenny and I have been together for five years. we are practically soulmates. We met all the way back in college. I fell in love with her on first sight. We plan to get married soon in the future. Currently, we both live at home with our families. It is crowded at my parents house. I know Jenny and I would not be comfortable there. Jenny’s house is also crowded. We both came to the conclusion that we want our own place. Last week, we looked for apartments in Tampa. We think we might have found our perfect place to start a new life.

There are certain things that Jenny and I want in an apartment. One important thing is the neighborhood itself. We want to live in a neighborhood that has safe streets and a low crime rate. Continue reading

I just got my yearly bonus from the new place where I have been working for around three and a half months. Of course it is not as big as it would have been in other years, because the bonus is tied to the price of copper per pound as we are a contractor who does plumbing and electrical work. After every job there is a small amount of scrap metal left over that can not be used for any other work, so we throw it in a dumpster behind the shop. Of course we lock it up and we do not tell people that there is a lot of copper in it.Copper+Tubing Continue reading

Jean and I have been thinking about what we are going to do when we get ready to retire. That is a few years off in the future, but I have sort of come into a windfall, mostly because my great uncle Lou was alienated from his only son. Of course Lou Jr. Is in prison for the next eight years and his Dad is hardly the only one who is not talking to him. He died suddenly and I found his will left me most of his money. I called Just Energy to hook up the power on this piece of Gulf Coast property that he left us. It is about three and a half acres, although much of it can not really be used for any purpose, it is too low lying to be safe from storm surge and you would be foolish to invest your money in building a house on it. We have just started building a place on the Gulf and I am thinking that we want to try to make it a place which is as safe from the elements as is practical. Continue reading

WordPress… simple – affordable – effective

What is WordPress? Let’s let the experts in Wikipedia explain more….

WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL which runs on a web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by over 14.7% of Alexa Internet’s “top 1 million” websites, and as of August 2011 manages 22% of all new websites. WordPress is currently the most popular blogging system being used on the Web, powering over 60 million websites worldwide.

It was first released on May 27, 2003, by founders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little as a fork of b2/cafelog. As of April 2013, version 3.5 had been downloaded over 18 million times.

Website Maintenance Management – critical decisions…

Okay, so your website is now built and you are thrilled and everything is working perfectly. So how are you going to keep it like this? You want to update some copy, change a picture, add a video… oh and you now want this in the sidebar not the main content page.

WordPress is a dreamy content management system that effectively gives the freedom to use it as you wish and add, amend and change things – within reason – that the theme you have chosen allows.

But…

Who is going to do this moving forward once you have taken delivery of your nice, new shiny website?

While building WordPress websites a designer and coder will keep the code and website optimised, clean and up to date. Once the website is delivered and ‘live’ any out of date code or plugin/functionality can cause the site to slow down, crash, not work properly or any other number of strange technical anomalies. This is not the responsibility of the web developer / designer unless they have a maintenance and management contract in place.

Website maintenance management is essential but the critical decision is who, how often and what happens if it all goes wrong?!

On that note there are, effectively, two options. You or your web developers.

CMS – Content Management…   what System? DIY or under developer control?

RISKS outsourced CMS

Restrictive contract – Monthly / Annual fee
Lack of control over time and cost

RISKS in house CMS

Inherent risks: non-technical staff
The long term risks of not keeping your website and code in the background up to date are costly both in time and money.

Monthly contract versus hourly rate

Whoever builds your website it is definitely worth an in-depth conversation about the upkeep and updating of the site in the long run. Most developer, if you don’t have a maintenance contract in place, and they have handed you over full control of the site – in working order – will not do anything to fix it following handover unless you pay for it on an hourly basis, which could prove a lot more costly than a monthly management fee. Worth thinking about and we do urge you to give it careful consideration.
Contact the WordPress Group to discuss any options for website maintenance management in WordPress.

Social Media Marketing is…

  • Social media marketing is easier said than done
  • a commitment
  • just one route to market
  • not a quick fix
  • a great way to increase business when done right
  • slow to start but once it gets going, it’s phenomenal!

Social media marketing is, in the scheme of things, such a new phenomenon that we thought you may like to read some of the relevant quotes from those who have embraced it fully and understand the mechanisms and theories behind it…

“Social networks aren’t about Web sites. They’re about experiences.” – Mike DiLorenzo, NHL social media marketing director

“Conversations among the members of your marketplace happen whether you like it or not. Good marketing encourages the right sort of conversations.” – Seth Godin

“Our head of social media is the customer.” – McDonald’s

“Social media marketing is just a buzzword until you come up with a plan.” – Unknown

“Ask yourself this question CONSTANTLY: where can I add the most value to what matters most to me and the people who care about me?” – Chris Brogan, author of “Trust Agents”

“Social media is about tapping into the passions of the right people in the right places at the right time with the right strategy” – Carol Mann, co-founder / partner at ‘wegetdigit@l’

Once you have established a plan to create the right content then you need to make sure that you reach the right people with your content! This is where the social media networking channels are effective and launching some businesses into a whole new realm of marketing. Below we have listed just some of the considerations and actions:

  • Identify the right social media marketing channels for your business
  • Make sure you have the right personality and voice.
  • Online reputation management: Crucial!
  • Digital customer services – enabling a fast response…impress your clients and keep them!
  • Set social media objectives and meet them
  • Develop a strategic mix of the right people to engage with: fast!
  • Build your online community and maximise sales opportunities when they arise
  • Meet and Greet: The importance of creating relationships and keeping them
  • Tools save time: Finding that ride-on digital lawn mower!
  • The importance of minor channels and how they can work for you
  • Measure and track all your online activity [quality and quantity] to make the right decisions moving forward

What we will do: 

  1. Set up the right social channels for your business
  2. Integrate those channels with your WordPress Website
  3. Align the distribution of your content to these channels on a regular and sustainable basis
  4. Monitor continually the communities that will grow on these channels making sure that you are being responsive and engaged at all times
  5. Train you and any staff on how to continue to work with those communities at all times in the right way

Just one more quote but by someone who knew not about social media technology, however, seemingly knew everything about social media engagement… ! 

“How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it. But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people — first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving…” – Einstein

Internet Marketing – now there’s a broad term in today’s world!

if you build it, they still may not come

At least… not straight away.

And not without an effective marketing campaign to drive visitors to your dot.com – and convert those visitors into profitable repeat customers.

Back when online was in its infancy – the early 1990s! – the web was widely expected to ‘level the commercial playing field’, allowing savvy SMEs to compete on equal terms with their larger competitors.

The reality is rather different.

Money still talks. Larger firms are able to invest in the latest technologies, the finest creative talent, and the most robust architecture – creating compelling ‘interactive experiences’ in-keeping with their prestigious ‘household name’ brands.

Now the good news. The WordPress Group can help you really take a stand and compete on a level playing field with the competition at a fraction of the price. It can be done!

According to a recent SoDA (Society of Digital Agencies) survey conducted with a cross section of marketing agencies and individuals at the end of January 2013, when asked how customers are distributing their marketing spend, their answers confirmed that 39% of companies are are not increasing their marketing budget just allocating more to digital.

Businesses who are engaging in digital marketing are often looking for a big idea, one that ‘pulls’ their target market’s attention within the constantly-evolving, multi-platform digital landscape.

That requires great creative and strategic planning, but also, as importantly, technological literacy. This is where the WordPress Group truly act and integrate as a digital marketing team. We can make technology work for psychology… not the other way around!

Creativity is being replace by flexibility … process can guide you but it is not a definitive path to success!

Internet Marketing is as broad as it is deep. You have to find what options suit you and your business and, more importantly, your target market. Your clients. The people who you want to buy from you and use your services… as well as those who won’t but will recommend you to someone who will! It all adds up.

Again. Do contact us for any Internet Marketing questions and we are more than capable, let alone happy, to help.

So you’ve planned your website and know exactly what you want and have it all nicely mapped out. You have created your content, defined your goals and now you need to build the pitch!

Short listing and commissioning the right web development team as your WordPress website builder.

Things you need to consider…

  • Who does what in a development team – and why one size can’t fit all
  • The benefits of using a full service agency
  • How to short list your prospective suppliers – and the warning signs to look out for during contractual negotiations
  • How a legally binding contract will keep your developers honest – and your costs in check

The Ultimate WordPress Website Builder: Team or Individual?

We always talk about ‘the developer’ and ‘the designer’. Indeed, we’ve used the terms interchangeably, taking them to mean: the person or persons who will ultimately build your site.

Now it’s time to face the unpalatable facts:
The likelihood of your finding the broad skill set and experience you need – in a single individual – is not great.

For the fact is, a successful website draws on a wide range of abilities – from information architecture and art direction, to copywriting, coding, database programming … and many more.

Given this, you face a difficult choice: either to employ the services of a larger (invariably more expensive) ‘full service’ agency – or to research, recruit and project-manage your own multi-disciplinary team.

The above fact is, indeed, why The WordPress Group came about! If you want to be a professional, use a professional. Hence you have here a veritable ‘pot’ of expertise and professionals covering the whole gamut that is building and promoting a business website!

In reality, finding a suitable agency is like looking for any other kind of contractor.

Recommendation is, of course, the best option: if someone whose opinion you trust tells you that s/he is really happy with a particular firm, you’d be silly to ignore their advice.

After that, it’s back to the Yellow Pages (or, more likely, its online counterpart, Yell.com), the local business directories… and of course the web itself – which is how you may have found us, The WordPress Group.

Whilst an online search for ‘web developer’ will yield millions of results – even when constrained to a particular region – the firms that appear on the first few pages are obviously worthy of further investigation.

If a company is able to achieve a spot in the upper reaches of the organic listings, in such a highly competitive sector, imagine what they could do for you.

And, even better, their capabilities are on display for all to see.

Stick with us as your WordPress Website Builder and you can’t go wrong… well things can go wrong, because technology sometimes does that – but at least we know how to put it right!

Creating content

Anxious to get started on your site? You’ll need to be – if you’re to stand a chance of capturing your readers’ interest.

You see, enthusiasm is contagious. And so is apathy. If what you’re doing doesn’t interest you, it won’t interest your audience: your indifference will come across in your writing. And that’s not good.

After all, you may have 100,000s, maybe even millions, of visitors to your site – all prospective buyers of your product.

So, before you start, just remind yourself why your product’s so good (if necessary, dust off those old case studies and client testimonials by way of a reminder); then list your unique value propositions and differentiators – and get started.

Oh, and don’t worry about the enormity of your audience. At the end of the day, you’re writing to just one of them – your prospective customer.

Creating content with one person in mind is all you need to do. Talk always about ‘you’ (the reader)

IMPORTANT… The style will support the content. Do NOT try to “shoe-horn” content into the style.

YOU MUST CONSIDER CREATING CONTENT FIRST!

Your content is your collateral on the Internet

It is the ‘stuff’ that attracts customers to your website, retains their interest and encourages repeat visits.

  • Design
  • Copy
  • Graphics & Images
  • Video & Audio

Creating Content: Copy

Good copywriting…

Common errors

Assumption visitor knows about the company and products and services
Internal jargon – undecipherable acronyms

THINK CRABS!*

  • Chunking
  • Relevance
  • Accuracy
  • Brevity
  • Scannability

Creating Content: General

Content Testing

Make sure you continually test content FOR…

  • Display on different types of browsers for formatting
  • Interactive facilities – form filling etc.
  • Database integration offline
  • Spelling and grammar
  • Adherence to Web standards
  • Links

If you would like any more information on creating content for the Internet please contact The WordPress Group. We have a selection of documents and papers written that can really help.

By failing to plan, you’re planning to fail

It’s been attributed to Benjamin Franklin, Winston Churchill, and a procession of ‘business gurus’. Whoever said it first, however, this oft quoted adage couldn’t be more apposite than in the bewildering world of the web.

Few businesses plan their websites intelligently; rather, as often as not, they commission a site simply because they “thought they ought to have one”.

In turn, developers are generally more concerned with the site’s look, feel and technical functionality than its commercial application.
Small wonder, then, that so many sites provide little more than ‘online brochure ware’.

By indulging in the correct website planning, your website should contribute, directly, to your business’ development – providing a global platform on which to

  • Build brand awareness and reputation
  • Expand your market reach
  • Generate, qualify and convert new leads
  • Showcase new services
  • Slash your marketing and transactional costs;
  • Communicate with potential business partners, staff, Investors, and the media
  • Deliver better and more timely customer service
  • Sell more products more profitably; and
  • Enhance the lifetime value of your customers

Following are the kinds of questions that you will need to have the answers to, in detail, before you start approaching people to design and build your website. There is a lot of research and consideration that should go into the answers so that you will have a commercially effective website.

  1. What the site’s supposed to do for my business?
  2. Who are my customers and what do they want?
  3. What should my site look like?

And so on and so forth. As you can see website planning is not exactly complicated but it is involved and requires some thinking. No more than half to a full day is required to make a start and save a lot of heartache and wasted expense and time in the long run.

The WordPress Group are highly experienced in helping businesses with their website planning and look forward to hearing from you.

In doing research this evening on a brand new on the net management application, Central Desktop, I had the pleasure of playing with their incredible Office environment integration. Essentially, it’s a stand alone install that integrates with your central desktop account. It will allow you to produce, get/edit existing information in your account, in addition to Concurrently update any recordsdata inside word or excel. Even though it may well be a bit heavy for smaller teams, I believe this type of integration is WAY far better than stand-alone solutions for instance Basecamp’s writeboards (which are good, but let’s face it – most of us still use Workplace – if only mainly because everybody else does).

Central Desktop’s wonderful new Place of work integration has already received some buzz over at OneDayOneJob, where they’ve highlighted how Central Desktop closely mirrors the changing pace of organization.

In addition TechCrunch was fast to point out that Central Desktop is truly the only sizeable, and usable, competitor to Sharepoint:

The new tool enables customers to comment on recordsdata, manage subscribers and track model history. Central Desktop’s co-authoring feature allows a lot more than one particular user to edit Place of work recordsdata, concurrently, by tracking and syncing all changes made by collaborators and merging them correctly into a single updated model.

Our, internet developers delight in spending time with their families , so the weekly operating hours is set to 40, from Monday by way of Friday from 8 to four PM. Any have to have for feedback outside this time frame will definitely go unresponded.
Finish product is delivered only following the full payment is created. The world wide web is really a huge place and  that’s our only insurance that our work will likely be compensated.

There are many ways of doing what one can to be more environmentally friendly and to help preserve the planet, and now roofing is one of them. Going green, like charity, begins at home and many people are now choosing to install eco-friendly roofing options that are good for the environment.

The first option is that of the innovative solar roof shingles that use photovoltaic cells to transform solar energy to provide electricity for your home. It is advised that they be used on the south side of the roof to utilize the maximum power of the sun through as much exposure as is possible.

The advantage of this form of energy is of course that it is completely renewable, produces no waste, has no harmful effects and is a green source of energy that helps the environment. The best part is, the government subsidizes this form of electricity generation to make it worth the cost of using the photovoltaic energy and in a few years it is projected to cost as much as grid electricity, making it a good investment now.

Another interesting choice is the green roof, which involves coating the entire surface of your roof with plants, making it literally a green roof. This may sound avant-garde but can be quite pleasing to see. These plants also help increase greenness in urban regions, restore natural habitats for birds, reduce the levels of heat building and use up carbon dioxide. A useful feature is the ability to soak up as much as 95% of rainwater, reducing runoff and water damage to the building.

If you’re looking to install a green roof, there are two options you can choose from: extensive and intensive. The former uses soil and creates an environment that sustains plants, herbs, grasses and trees that grow on their own and cannot be used for interactive purposes.

Intensive green roofs on the other hand are more costly and simultaneously more environmentally friendly options that enable recreational activity and interactive behavior. These roofs use soil to sustain the growth of a larger variety of trees and plants and have the ability to sustain much larger trees.

The greatest advantage of these roofs in the short term is that they replace the heat-absorbing materials commonly used for roofs, such as concrete, slate and asphalt. This helps beat the common problem of hot spots in towns, cities and urban areas. When sunlight is captured, instead of heating up the building, solar roofs transform the energy into usable power. Other eco-friendly options you can avail include recycled materials and shingles as well as wood shakes. Wood shakes, particularly those made of cedar, provide twice the insulation asphalt does and grow more beautiful with age instead of fading, becoming damaged and needing replacement.

Whichever option you go for, you can help reduce waste or help offset the damage inflicted by urban centers and cities. If you decide to go with asphalt roofing, you can still go green by choosing a variety that will remain durable for decades to come.
