Word of mouth is a great tool for tradies, but what about all of those people heading to google to look for your services.

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.
