If you run a small business the chances are someone has said to you i’ll like you on Facebook or I’ll follow you on Twitter. If you smiled when they said that… great, if you curled your lip and said what? – You need some help implementing your Social Media for Business strategy.

An unexpected power cut at the office this morning got me thinking, (not least " how to I get through the day without tea"). Like so many others, I have become almost entirely reliant on the Internet and power to drive it and while I wasn't short of offline jobs that needed doing it made me question my way of working.

Fortunately, before I could think for too long some guy with a massive generator/truck had us back online and I could get back to my internet bubble.... and a brew !

Read my latest blog post which highlights just some of the online tools I use everyday: http://mikecrisp.co.uk/reliance-internet-power/

Is your website 'Mobile Friendly'?

If its more than 3 years old, probably not.

What does that actually mean? Put simply, does your website change its shape and design to make sure users on smart phones and tablets can view it easily without having to zoom in or scroll to read the content.

Yesterday wass 'Mobilegeddon' day as some doom monger called it. From today Google will start to prioritise search results that are mobile friendly.... when you are searching on a mobile device. http://bit.ly/1BFzTnw

If you website isn't 'Responsive' you may/will start to lose ranking on mobile searches. To be clear it will not affect your desktop search results (yes google is that clever !)

HOWEVER - if you haven't noticed the growing influence of people searching for 'stuff' on their smart phone or tablet you wont be in business for long !!

Get in touch if you are concerned about the performance of your site - It doesn't always mean a complete redesign - we can do clever 'codey' things to fix many sites.

Just a word of warning that is well worth sharing. There are a couple of well produced spam emails doing the rounds from someone claiming to be Paypal. (see picture)

Its not PayPal - note the extra e in the email address @e.paypal.co.uk.
If you are in any doubt login to your actual paypal account via your browser - Any messages will be there.

As the saying goes..... Keep 'em peeled !!

Are you job hunting ? Have you 'googled' your name recently? I get a mixture of PHD's, Kick boxers, a policeman, film director and my own company. Its a well known fact that one of the first things a prospective employer will do is to see what they can find on social media. Pictures of you falling over drunk, half naked and swearing will not fit in with their corporate culture and could therefore cost you a job.... Hows your resume / CV ? Have you got a professional email address at the bottom so that they can contact you or the one you had when you were at school.... sexyxxx123@hotmail.com or billybignuts@gmail.com - What do these say about your professional credibility ? So what am I jabbering on about....? Very simple. If you would like a professional online presence (website) so that you can start to manage your own 'brand' with a matching email address in your own domain for example mike@mikecrisp.co.uk - its very straightforward and could cost you less than £100. Surely that's worth the investment to help find your dream job. Get in touch now and I'll have you online within 24hrs. See More
