Web-Design Social Media Update

Social media is a pervasive part of today’s culture, whether you’re looking at it from a user standpoint or a marketing standpoint. The social web has the largest amount of traffic, endless user engagement and is the place to be to maintain any sort of web presence. Sharing buttons and integrated features are a commonly touted tool for Joomla templates, but with new social medias popping up practically every day, it’s important to figure out a good sharing balance, where to position your sharing buttons, and how many buttons are too many.

Which Sites to Share?

The first order of business is figuring out which social media sites are most appropriate for your website. You want to go with the high-traffic social media sites to start, such as Facebook, Google+, Reddit and Pinterest. Expanding further depends on your audience and your niche. Niche social media sites give you targeted traffic of those who are more likely to be interested in the topics you’re talking about, at the expense of having lower traffic volume. Take a look at where your target demographic likes to spend their time before deciding on other social media sites.

How to choose the best Joomla Template for your project

Invest your time better when desiging a site

You already know that Joomla is a versatile platform with a theming system that provides great features and flexibility. As a Web developer working on your own projects or a client site, you also already know that it’s a great idea and the best use of your time to invest in purchasing a professional template to build upon. When you do this, you don’t have to focus on laying out the groundwork for your web-design project, because the template will take care of that. Instead, you can spend your time on the small details, the customization, the incorporated features, and the site design.

The Joomla theme market is huge, so it’s important to go into the process with a list of features, requirements, and theme characteristics that will work best for your needs, skill level, and the particular project.

6 Web-Entrepreneurship Books you Must Read

The path to becoming a successful web entrepreneur and freelancer takes a great deal of time and effort. Your friends and colleagues are good sources of advice, but you also want to hit the books during the course of your research. From marketing to work-life balance, there's plenty of resources out there for web entrepreneurs and freelancers who want to get the most out of their unconventional careers. 

1. The 4-Hour Workweek

Keystone reading for any web entrepreneur or freelancer, and for good reason. When you start your own business, you put in a lot of time to get everything just right. The problem with this is that over time, you may find yourself unable to actually scale back the amount of hours you're working. "The 4-Hour Workweek" by Timothy Ferriss lets you figure out out how to work smarter instead of harder, so you can enjoy your success and have a good work/life balance.
I have never been able to work just 4 hours a week, however, this book helped break many paradigms about what I need to be doing vs what I want to be doing. I learned how to delegate tasks I was not skilled at in order to make more time for the areas of my business I excelled at.

5 Blog Ideas for Joomla Marketers When There's Nothing to Write About

The thought of blogging can sometimes just make us cringe. What do I write about? Where do I begin? Why do I have to do this again? Why can't my brain focus today? Is it time to eat my lunch yet?

You may even end up wasting time just staring at the blank document wondering, how does everyone else do this all the time? How are they always coming up with fresh ideas to blog about?

On the Grid: Tips for Grid Layouts

Grid Layouts Rock!

Nothing trumps a reliable, easy-to-use UI. No amount of killer graphics, clever landing pages, or HTML5 showboating can equal a site that displays information clearly and concisely. Grid-based layouts are a perfect tool to do that. They can present a huge amount of content at a glance, and are easy to update. But, keeping them interesting can be a challenge. Here are some tips to bring the "wow" factor.

Keep it cohesive

One of the dangers of this layout is that it can feel cluttered. You have to give it a seamless look. Grid layouts can't feel arbitrary. Your readers' attention gets scattered if the layout looks like it's thrown together. If you are using a lot of images (and it's not a news-based site), pick ones that are similar in color scheme or composition, like Canvas Magazine does with its neutral photos. Viktoria Klein uses images that are linked by color, pattern or content to add variety while still keeping the aesthetic flow.

5 Tips To Create Engaging Facebook Posts for Joomla Marketers

Hook 'Em and Sink 'Em: Examples of Effective Landing Pages (And Why They Work)

There is no shortage of landing pages on the web. From eCommerce to news to lifestyle sites, there remain very few name brand sites that haven't caught on to the idea of directing action with strategic landing pages. 

Still, many newbies are unsure what differentiates an OK and a great landing page. While there are countless wonderful articles out there about the guidelines for creating a killer landing page, I always find it best to learn by example.

Thus, here's a look at some effective landing pages, and a quick assessment of what they're doing right:
