Getting free press for your network

One way of getting traffic to your network is by using the press, and I do mean USING, not paying. Free press is great if you can get it, and I'm gonna tell you exactly how to do it. So far I've been featured in local press as well as a couple of glossy monthly mags, 5 publications in all, and it did not cost me a penny!

He pensado que sería interesante disponer de una plantilla para recordar las opciones de MI RED, desde donde controlamos todos los aspectos y funcionalidad de nuestras redes. Se trata de 6 plantillas, 6 "chuletas", que muestran en español las correspondientes capturas de las diferentes opciones que hay. Esto sin duda ayudará a localizar rápidamente una determinada opción de menú. Es posible que también nos ayude a descubrir algunos aspectos nuevos.

He incluido también los iconos de los Accesos directos para los que aún se rigen por estos. También he provisto de un margen a la izquierda de las capturas por si alguien quiere hacer algunas anotaciones a mano. El tamaño se ajusta más o menos para imprimir en una hoja DIN4 (recomiendo imprimirlo en color).

The new Ning Point of View (POV) Report examines trends in community engagement across the ever-changing social ecosystem that all inspired organizations and businesses can apply to spark change with as few as 20 people.

I don't know why I didn't think of it before, but for the last few months, when I have a new member request and I can't quite decide if they're a spammer or just lousy at filling out their profile... I take their email and plug it into the search blank on Facebook. It's not a perfect system, but it is one more step to test a new member's authenticity before you hand them the power to blast nasty on all your members!

The screen shot, above, is of my private website for the members of The 100.  ---martial arts school owners, teachers, and their staff members. 

 

The green tabs on the left are expandable --and I found the idea here on Ning Creators. It's made organizing my information so much easier --and it's so much better looking than what I had before. 

 

Wanted to pass along a thanks. I really enjoy Ning.

I requested all members who want to join my groups on other networks (e.g. LinkedIn) to first sign-up with my Ning network, in order to be accepted. I don't have the time to check if all potential members follow my rule, but it significantly increased the number of sign-ups on my Ning network, and also help reduce the number of people who join for spamming purposes.

Design 101, Too Many Fonts - Good Grief!

I just added this to JenSocial, and figured it might be a good idea to add here too. When it comes to Graphic and Web Design, there's a ton of room for all types of artistic and creative levels, styles, etc... However, there isn't room for a ton of fonts. Some of the wonderful aspects of the vastness of the Internet are: so much to discover, so much for the eyes to see - - so many different designs, and so many different Designers. But, way too often, there are too many fonts starring you in the face.

 

Whether you have designed your own website, or hired a Designer, here are a couple of Design Tips that you can take to heart - - seriously. There's no written-in-stone rules, just a few good rules-of-thumb. To new or novice Designers these tips may seem simple and unimportant. But, trust me on this. These 2 small bits of advice are critical for the success of your overall Design.

 

  • Don't Use Too Many Font Types. There is never a need to use more than 2-3 for a logo, header, or special image. And you shouldn't use more than 3-4 for your overall site.
  • Be Consistent When Using Fonts and Applying Font Attributes. For example: If you use a different font for every headline, this is confusing, tough on the eyes, and can give your design a busy and unprofessional look. If you apply bold for one type header, apply bold for all headers of the same type. If you use Lucida Grande, and apply bold for a sub-title, do the same for all sub-titles.

 

Bottom Line: There will be cases where you really need more fonts. If you need more to communicate better, go for it. But, when possible, try to keep those fonts at a minimum.

 

Happy Designing!

;-)

You still can,...if you believe!

Wow, what a week this has been. It's been one big backfire, problem, slowdown, personal stuff too - - one after another. I shared this on JenSocial, and thought I'd share it here, too. Tonight would be an easy night to say "Just @#$% it." But, I'll choose the positive route, and will try to spread a little inspiration to the next fellow, like the young Creator of this Video did for me.

 

So, if you've had a crazy week, take a few minutes to watch this little video. It's very simple, but incredibly inspiring. Take a look. Hopefully it will help make your week a little better. It really helped me reclaim that "I can do it." attitude. If you don't believe in yourself and your ideas, you can't take action. It's never too late, just believe.

You still can,...if you believe!

I love, love, love the new design tools.

Thank you to all the boys and girls at ning that put this stuff together. I'm a designer but not a programmer and I made our Veloist site look awesome!

The beta 2 column format is exactly what I wanted to do, cleaner lines and bigger ad space--now I just need some advertisers.

Rock on ning, oh and ride safe.
