Mobile First is Here

Mobile First is Here

Mobile first arrived in 2014

It is taking us time to internalize this fact.

According to Google Analytics data  gathered by Google Search Engine in 2017, 40% of online transactions are carried out on mobile devices.

Mobile World Congress 2018

Recently, at the Mobile World Congress  in Barcelona, 3 industry leaders, Clorox CMO Eric Reynolds, Horizon Media Executive VP and Managing Partner Sarah Baehr, and Lego VP and Head of U.S. Marketing Amy Pascal stated

  2. Make your creative mobile-first.
  3. Answer a consumer need.

Why is Website Security Essential?

Why is Website Security Essential?

Thursday this week was Computer Security Day. For me this past week has been Website Disaster Recovery Week. Last month I participated in WordCamp Baltimore, an event for the WordPress and blogging community. There I attended a talk on web security by Eve Land  support engineer for the Sucuri company. She said that every website should have a disaster recovery plan. The question is not what happens IF my website gets hacked, but what to do WHEN it gets hacked.

3 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR VISIBILITY DURING YOUR PRESENTATION

3 TIPS TO BOOST YOUR VISIBILITY DURING YOUR PRESENTATION

Leveraging Social Media

The talk is riveting. The presenter is entertaining. I have learned so many interesting facts.  I cringe inwardly when I realize how the speaker has missed a golden opportunity…

It is an undisputed fact that presenting to an audience is one of the best ways to gain visibility for your business.  When I stand up to speak, then I notice some people are “working”, playing Candy Crush or texting their latest flame. The best advice I can offer to attempt to gain the audience’s attention is to  read Jeff Haden’s post.

Think twice before you speak, because your words and influence will plant the seed of either success or failure in the mind of another.

– Napoleon Hill

I am the speaker’s worst nightmare. I constantly fiddle with my phone as I transition between taking notes and photographs, unless the presenter has taken advantage of the strategies mentioned below…

Now the audience’s attention is focused upon you.

How can you leverage this opportunity to share your content and connect on social media?

Nannette Minley – Marketing Strategist

Nannette Minley – Marketing Strategist

This week I attended a Meet Up where a person spoke about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The talk had some interesting tips and insight; however the speaker did not fail to mention that his authority was based upon the fact that he has 10,000 followers and had written a book on the psychology of marketing. He invited us 3 times during the talk to email him and get his white paper without an opt-in.

According to my understanding this is the opposite of what Nannette Minley does. She coaches entrepreneurs trying to make an impact with customized marketing strategies for their business. The focus is on their vision and clarity rather than determining success in terms of 10,000 followers or the six figure slogan.

Kathy Miller Wilson – WELA Workshops

Kathy Miller Wilson – WELA Workshops

Whilst talking to Kathy Wilson of WELA (Workplace Etiquette Leadership Academy) Workshops I felt the deep commitment that she has of bringing leadership experience gained in the workforce to young adults entering the workforce, teams and individuals  ‘building people to become the best versions of themselves’.

What impressed me about Kathy that is not included in her list of services is how she as an individual felt motivated to expand her job description from Budget Director into something that inspired and fulfilled her. Coworkers who understood her talents would approach her for help and advice. She loved grooming staff for greatness, revealing their strengths and weaknesses, passions, unique talents and gifts.  She loved seeing that light bulb come on when they “Got It”, and moved from awareness to growing with intention into their purpose, and eventually soar into their destiny.
