This week a client emailed me to ask how to make website links open in a new page.
She had remembered me telling her to open these links in “new” browser windows so that her website would remain open in the background. If this step wasn’t done, the new website link would override her website, and the visitor could potentially forget where they’d been in the first place.
My client’s website is using WordPress.org and I made a snapshot to show her how to do it (see below).
Today’s podcast is “Facebook Questions & Answers” with questions from Darryl and Mary-Louise. We cover the difference between Personal Profiles and Pages, as well as whether it’s a good idea to allow Facebook to import all your email contacts. Mary-Louise also asks about her strategy for creating banner images to use in Facebook – which I definitely agree with.
Let me know if you have any questions or anything to share about your Facebook experiences.
Can an Editorial Calendar really work? I hear this question a lot and the short answer is, “Yes, it can!”. The long answer is, “Yes, it can if you set it up properly and use it consistently.”. I know people who use all types of ways to remind themselves when to write on their blog, here are just a few:
To Do Lists (paper and online)
Spreadsheets (printed and online)
Marketing Websites where you may or may not pay a monthly fee to schedule all your tasks
Task Scheduling software (again you may or may not have to pay, depending on the brand)
Writing a week or more worth of tweets in advance, and then scheduling them is a great way to save time and effort. Quite often some of your tweets can be repeated month after month, so a new Twitter audience will get to see them too.
