Joomla 3.2 was released November 6th, 2013. Our team started testing Joomla 3.2 that same morning and by that afternoon, our team had already tested and made sure 40+ of our Joomla Templates and Extensions worked as promised with Joomla 3.2. Today we have over 37 Joomla 3.2 Templates in addition to several Free Joomla 3.2 Templates.
This is the kind of immediate access to upgrades our customers have grown to expect from the Joomlashack Team.
Our team was able to accomplish this because they are awesome, and because our templates were created using the nimble, powerful, and versatile Wright Framework.
Are you writing "Benefit-Driven" Copy?
Or, are you boasting about your product's features? Believe it or not, it is way harder to write copy for your customers than it is to write copy describing your products. And it is way easier to fall into the trap of "feature-driven" writing than "benefit-driven" copy. Here are some tips to help you know the difference.
When a customer has a problem, you have an amazing opportunity to help him/her out. If you write "benefit-driven" copy, you certainly stand a higher chance to differentiate yourself from the gazillion providers that are out there competing with you. Why? When a customer realizes that you truly understand his NEEDS or WANTS, you are setting yourself appart.

Andrew shares some of EasySocial's cool features:
You already know that this world is about competition and standing out. To stand out you MUST push your boundaries. Sorry, no other way around--especially if you are in the game of web development / design.
You may be familiar with Seth Godin's best-seller “Purple Cow (Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable)”. If not, I highly recommend you read the 143-pager.
The basic concept behind it is how to differentiate yourself from the rest by being remarkable. If you see a black-and-white cow, there is nothing remarkable about it, BUT if you see a purple-and-white cow, THAT is different! I ask you: “How many purple cows have you seen?”
