Welcoming our newest team member, Molly Jenkins!
Molly is the new girl on the block here at Simple Pixels.
She is the Support Specialist at Simple Pixels where she is responsible for tech and web support. On a mission to live up to our high standard in customer service, she is focused on improving our processes and broadening our services.
Molly spends her spare time taking up every hobby under the sun, performing in theatre productions, listening to Michael Jackson and The Weeknd (a contrast, we know).
This amazing chic succeeds at everything she touches, for example, she had over 80k followers on her wallpaper/graphic Instagram account when she was just 13 years old! She loves to perform any kind of music and enjoys a jam sesh any day of the week.
Watch this space… Molly has a lot to bring to our team!
Word of mouth is a great tool for tradies, but what about all of those people heading to google to look for your services. Without a great website, you’re most likely not getting those clicks, and terribly going unnoticed by that 46% of local google searches. That’s right, more and more people are taking to the internet to find nearby services, long be gone the yellow pages days. Get a website, get your company on Google, get yourself seen.
We were seeing increases to our customer’s website traffic by over 100%. Over a million impressions in the real estate game over a 12 month period.
These days, everyone is a web design / digital marketing / SEO expert. You probably already get emails to the following tune (typos and & left in deliberately!):
People are always asking me about this so I thought it might be worth a quick blog article to explain how different image formats work, and when to use them!
For most of us, we would snap a quick photo on the iPhone, and then email/text/snapchat/messenger it through. That works for most of our needs!
Lately, we have been having an issue where an email is marked as SPF Neutral instead of getting a good old PASS from GSUITE when an email has been sent through the website’s contact form.
In our situation, we were using a 3rd party SMTP service that was integrated with our hosting. This service required modifying the SPF record to add an include statement, and set up the DKIM record. Great. Done. All looks good.
Everything looks exactly correct! The email was going out but going to Junk Mail. When we inspected the email it said SPF neutral, not permitted or denied, and not a PASS as we expected.
Last Thursday we had the privilege of being apart of the Speed Mentoring Program. This was an event organised by the Smith Family for students from Wagga Wagga High School, Mount Austin High School and Kooringal High School. Mount Austin High School’s two youth programs Clontarf Academy and Girls@thecentre also had students attend.
Approximately 50 students attended and were given the opportunity to ask businesses questions and engage with them. The aim was providing advice on possible career pathways, job opportunities, study options and training. To hopefully plant a seed.
Well, stole is probably the wrong word! But an interesting tale nevertheless!
We recently had a customer who had a couple of websites that were developed by someone else, and these were hosted on some server space. We were in discussions about taking on their sites & hosting, getting their sites a bit more visually appealing and adding some social media widgets to the site.
Too much tech speak? Let me put it this way. The last time you wanted to look up a hair dresser in Wagga, which of the following did you do?
1) Pull out the phone book (that was currently being used to sit your monitor on so it didn’t crick your neck), blow the excess dust of it, look up the index for H, find the page and ring the hairdresser with the biggest ad on that page (who would have paid handsomely for that ad)
2) Whip out your phone, and google it?
