You need a website

People need to Find You and Talk To You.

Finding you is called Marketing and talking to you is called Sales.

I love building websites and have been doing it since 1997.

Let me help you with yours.

The Virtual Braai

Twitter is like those newspaper headlines that you see on lampposts. Just a quick bit of news to encourage you to investigate more. Minute-by-minute information of what is happening right now.

Facebook is like a newspaper that you buy and scan through, picking out the interesting bits and throwing the rest away. Day-by-day information of what is happening in your world.

A Blog is like a magazine, that you read more thoroughly, and perhaps even keep for future reference.

A Website is like a coffee table book with lots of detailed information on a subject you are really interested in.

And all of this is so we can stand around our Virtual Braai and discuss topics that are close to our hearts.

It’s not about the camera | Michael Ashley Currin

A lot of marketing advice for photographers I read on blogs or in magazines is how to advertise, mainly using online media. Marketing is much more than just advertising. I thought I could write a more wholistic guide for photographers marketing themselves, also looking at the bigger picture (purpose and strategy). – Michael Ashley Currin

Using WordPress.com to create a Mobile Presence

Wordpress. com Mobile Themes
WordPress.com Mobile Themes

It is becoming more and more important to optimize your website for mobile.

The Smartphone is transforming communication and publishing.

490 million smartphones sold in 2011. – Jeff Bullas

When a visitor browses to your WordPress.com blog website using a mobile device, WordPress.com will show special themes designed to work on small screens focusing on fast load times.

Some WordPress.com themes are mobile-ready, also called “responsive width”, that adapt themselves to the device of the user.

However all WordPress.com themes are already mobile-friendly by default. The Minileven theme (a modification of Twenty Eleven) is displayed on modern mobile devices.

Users using older mobile devices  will see a version of the WordPress Mobile Edition theme.

WordPress.com also provides a special theme called Onswipe for the iPad.

So by using WordPress.com your website is already mobile-ready without you having to  do anything.

Just another great reason why you should be using WordPress.com for building your Web Presence.
