This WordPress major update is right around the corner.

This will make content and design very easy, but so you can work and learn at your own pace I recommend disabling it for now until you are ready. I'll leave a link on how to disable Gutenberg(the new update) in the next post.

Google Beta Testing Speakable

Here is an easy way to get a jump on the competition and the Big travel suppliers.

Speakable search is expected to be a big part of the web in the next couple of years.

With devices like Amazon's Alexa and Google's assistant making big headway with speech search, we are also seeing the laws change. In Georgia, my home state, there is a new hands-free driving law where you can not touch a phone when you are behind the wheel.

It usually takes the big travel suppliers and the large competition to apply some automation with the new technologies to their website, but with a smart and well thought out plan you can easily get a step ahead and shine above the competition with some hands-on applications when it comes to speech-listen search marketing.

If this is something you are interested in please let me know.

Fun Facts About Honey & Tea

Who doesn't love a little honey in their tea? Even though we may not always think about the health benefits of raw honey it is always there, healing the gut and providing trace minerals that are not usually in our diet.

The article talks about what large mega-corporations making a taste-like-honey product, which I'm sure is pretty easy to do today. Yes, it can probably taste just like real honey, but can it provide any of the benefits to the gut or provide trace minerals? I think that would be too expensive.

Being a somewhat paleo dieter, I look at man-made honey something similar to trans fat. something that fools the taste buds and offers no substance.

Stick with the good stuff.

GRPR in plain English

There's a lot of information out on the new #GDPR regulations and even if you are not marketing to any of the European Union(EU) countries you need to be aware.

If you own or manage a company that has a website you need to take steps to protect your user data, whether it's for marketing or gathering client information.

If you are a web designer you need to take steps to make sure your website's privacy policy and forms are clear.

If you do not market to the EU here are some easy to understand guidelines.

Budgeting for Social Networks vs. Websites

We have all seen what has happened over the last month with social networks. Even Twitter has come up with a whole new privacy policy and the consensus says we will see others come out with new opt-in and opt-out policies when it comes to managing our data.

In either case, it makes much more sense to develop your own website, not only to be more secure but to have more interactions with your clients and prospects.

I think we all know now if you have a client connected to your social network, they will see ads for your competition. Why would you want to share your clients with your competition?

It makes much more sense to have an online interaction on your site privately than to have a public interaction.

Social Media does offer its own unique benefits, but so does your website and right now it makes more sense to develop interactions with medium you own, your website.
