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.
Is your business keeping up with our ever-changing world of tech? Are your competitors ranking better than you on Google? So much can change in a short period when it comes to technology and social trends. Here are our 5 essentials that you need to have in place that won’t cost you money and are realistic to achieve before the end of 2019!
I have spent the past week reflecting on my first year working at Simple Pixels and what a journey it has been.
Firstly, accepting Pete’s proposal took a little convincing. I was content and settled in an administration/bookkeeping role for a logistics company so at the time, moving on wasn’t on the cards. I’d already planned my future (bad habit of mine), having had my two children whilst employed there, we had regular discussions on how ideal my job was for when the kids would commence school, not to mention I worked 4 minutes from home and the kid’s daycare was only 4 minutes from work. It ticked a lot of boxes for me.
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?
