Anatomy of a Web Presence

Sorry that I couldn’t make it in person…was hoping to listen online, but for some reason, the audio is just so bad that it’s hard to hear. It’s really breaking up…maybe buffering issues…I’m not sure.

Jan. 28 Live Event Recap — what we learned. Windows 10, awesome.

Youtube Live
Live streaming to Youtube via Google Hangout? It’s pretty easy, but you have to build the Youtube channel and make the preparations.Afterward though, we “unpublished” it (a link embedding it is below.) Why? Pretty seriously dull stuff, otherwise and — not produced with any characteristic titles, etc.

For a more intentional purpose there are a ton of possibilities and some things to rehearse … The crucial bits are a good PC and Camera and of course solid internet access.  In this case: We streamed 123minutes … no hiccups.

Unsure why, but at one point the audio failed.  This has to have been my fault … I think mistakenly clipped the mute button on the Notebook keyboard when I was moving the computer around on the desk.

The Windows 10 Prerelease build was stable — I not only streamed the video over a Logitec USB II HD web cam but, remarkably recorded video !simultaneously! with my Sony Handy Cam over FireWire IEEE1394 … All while showing desktop to two screens onsite and sharing the desktop in the live stream, switching between camera (people) and applications we were viewing several times.  The Notebook is an older Dell Vostro.

The only real issue I noticed — that Win10 — regardless of browser (IE, Firefox, Safari … ) seems to interpret sites as a mobile appliance. This make viewing sites that have mobile implementations preferable, by a large margin over legacy code.

Direct Marketing in the Digital Age – Emailing Client Lists?

Web Presence Consulting

Social Media channels afford businesses the opportunity to solicit followers by engaging prospective clients with interesting offers and dialogue on topics of shared interest.  This is great actually, but it’s not the end of the game, just the beginning.

Curves representing email volumes in 2013 versus 2014 during the all-important Holiday Season. Curves representing email volumes in 2013 versus 2014 during the all-important Holiday Season.

Modern businesses have a plan for how to leverage sending direct email to their customer lists. Operating an opt-in “Newsletter” is one method.  But also — capturing contacts from staff email accounts and driving towards forms of customer relationship management by sending periodic communications to those addresses is absolutely legitimate.

More than legitimate, Direct EMail is critical.

MailChimp.com, a very popular email list management company (they have quite a nice free offer for small clients) reports that mailings this past holiday season through their service rose 72% from December 2013.  View their blog post here.

MailChimp.com is one example of an affordable, easy to use, effective "List Management" service. MailChimp.com is one…

URL Redirects – Important links during Web Presence migrations

If you don’t know how much site traffic you’re receiving, taking a month to measure it isn’t a bad idea before moving to a new “Web Presence.”

New versions of Web Presence engines focus on content management -- and are improving the means of adding, adapting and publishing meaningful information to your viewers.

We are in a season of Web Presence upgrades.  For those operating self-hosted sites with WordPress.org, you should be aware of the recent release of the WordPress 4.0 site engine / CSS.

Matt Mullenweg<m@wordpress.org> circulated the following announcement the other day…

Just a few days ago, we released WordPress 4.0 “Benny” which has already been downloaded almost three-and-a-half million times! This release includes major improvements to the plugin directory, a much more pleasant environment to write in, with better embed support and an auto-expanding editor, and finally media has been made more functional and beautiful.

The reasons to upgrade are compelling … see those at the link above.

Anyway — if your upgrade means a complete web migration — you’re replacing…

Hi Bill.

Next time: Would you send your questions directly to Question@cherryintermedia.com … it will post, and others can benefit from our dialogue. I’ve cc’d that address in this response, so we’re good in this instance.

Right, opaque. I suppose that’s a relative term. 😉

My first suggestion is always: Try using WordPress.com help. I find it extremely well organized and very clear. This link will answer all of your questions if you take time to study it a little.

To find the options I think we discussed directly from your web browser do this:

  • (your URL)/wp-admin/options-discussion.php
  • Or: From Site Dashboard – navigate to Settings / Comments:

Good morning David,

Based in part on your workshop on Aug 27, I have sstarted ti actualize my plans for a web site for the Bandon Masonic Lodge.

As I continue to learn what I can from the Workshops I will also be working with a consultant who manages the Grand Lodge web site which hosts sites for the constituent lodges.

Scott Cook also emphasizes WordPress. At his advice I have biught a domain from dotster.com. The site I will be building will be at http://bandonmasons.org. The site will be based on one of his templates which can be viewed at http://template2.masonic-oregon.com/

I do not expect the site to be live on the Grand Lodge web server until after Labor Day. While I wait, I would like to work on the Blog at https://bandonmasons.wordpress.com/. You told me how to adjust the wa y the Blog acts on Comments; but it came too fast and I could not follow it. I know it must be adjusted on the Dashboard, but I am lost after that. I find the WordPress UI very opaque.
