How to build your online brand
You have heard it before.
“You need an Internet presence.”
Like being thrust into the world for the first time with nothing but the clothes on your back, it can be difficult to articulate what that means.
The obvious step is to build and manage a website. But there is much more to an “Internet presence” than simply having one.
On the web, everyone is at equal footing, so it is important to get your name out there above the rest.
Read the 3 steps below to learn how to brand on the Internet. Your success is guaranteed.
WeekPress #4: Making WordPress Events and New WordPress Plugins
How has the week been treating you WordPressers!
We are all personally a bit sunburned from last weekend’s WordCamp in Boston.
This week’s WeekPress centers on the sudden community focus of WordPress, from a few brand new WordPress widgets to the new WordPress Making WordPress Events initiative.
This week also saw quite a few new photo and photo header-based plugins, which we will talk about!
5 Ways to Get Noticed on the Internet
There are tips all over the web on how to move up the rungs of Google’s search ladder.
The problem is, that ladder is constantly being shortened, burned, or completely rebuilt. Every time Google releases a new update, websites with “good SEO” suffer and must be completely reworked.
There are many ways, since the beginning of time – EVEN PREDATING THE INTERNET – to become and remain noticed.
Here are 5 of them.
Minimize 1.1 is here
Slocum Studio is proud to announce the arrival of Minimize 1.1, the update to our lauded “Minimize” theme.
If you are unfamiliar with what makes our Minimize more than just a responsive theme, here is a crash course.
What is so great about the Minimize Responsive Theme?
Minimize takes the modern WordPress powered website or blog and makes it simpler.
Simpler to edit and simpler to experience.
Any content curator, from the biggest of names to the most basic of blogger can create a website that “responds” to the size of the display it is being viewed on. Using a mobile phone at lunch? Cake. Browsing at home on a 27″ iMac Desktop? No problem.
Here are some other features that previously and still make Minimize the way to go for the best website or blogging solution.
- Specific and customizable widget areas to clean up and maximize page space
- Different color and style options
- Multiple layouts for a unique and responsive website
- Support from our team at Slocum
With the tools available, you can already make a great, simple, and functioning website or blog for any device.
WeekPress #3: WordCamp Boston, WP Stack, and the 2012 Survey
We have a lot to report in this week’s WeekPress WordPress recap!
Many great things are happening in the WordPress community and our team is set to participate in the local event happening tomorrow.
Grab your iced latte, sit back, and recap this week in WordPress.
Why you need to attend WordCamp Boston 2012
Fresh off the heels from WordCamp NYC 2012, the Slocum team is set land in our home town of Boston.
We’re more excited than ever to attend the local WordCamp which is staged to be the largest yet. As of this article, the event has sold out and anyone who can no longer make the event, is advised to inform the staff so they can release more tickets.
That dosen’t mean you should start selling your coveted seat on eBay.
5 Reasons to KISS in the WordPress world
You were promised a KISS.
In the case of today’s topic, however, this KISS is less affectionate gesture and more “Keep It Simple, Stupid!”
Ok. Now you can pucker your lips, because the Internet is absolutely sour with in-your-face spam and busy website tactics that plague every click. Worse, the current social media climate favors the sharing of everything and anything.
