I came across this today. Useful if you are considering a website update that considers mobile users.

My business partner Randy Shiozaki tells it like it is.
The evolution of social TV for consumers, content producers and advertisers continues to move at a breakneck pace. Some won't make the cut.

Are you a designer? Do you find yourself designing websites? Are you being asked to design Wordpress sites? At my company, Red8 Interactive, we build what you design and we see the same mistakes being made over and over again. I wrote this with these errors in mind. I hope it helps.

We (Red8 Interactive) are looking closely at this right now for a couple of projects.

Some recent Red8 Interactive custom Wordpress builds: www.soasta.co (responsive), www.pacific-crest.com (meta boxes and custom post types) and www.swappin.com (Buddypress).

We certainly use SM at Red8 Interactive. Too bad more small businesses don't use email marketing. A missed opportunity.

Great resource for developers.
Look up HTML5, CSS3, etc features, know if they are ready for use, and if so find out how you should use them – with polyfills, fallbacks or as they are.

Story

Still laughing after all this time.
Introduction

Started in advertising in Canada many years ago.

Did the CPG thing.

Sent to South America for more CPG and lots of time on planes and in airports.

Learned Spanish. Bueno.

Next stop, Spain.

Shifted to a direct marketing agency owned by the holding company.

Learned a whole new way of doing things. Very cool.

Transferred to the head office in Chicago.

10 years doing direct marketing for some great clients.

A short stint “consulting,” then moved to San Francisco to be President of a direct marketing agency.

Transformed the agency from mail centric to a balance of traditional and online direct marketing. Satisfying.

Ran a pure interactive group. Out there on the bleeding edge. Lots of fun.

Consulting again. Helping companies change their marketing strategy to thrive in challenging times.
