Website Development & Programming

I'm reading some info on having a hub website is beneficial if you drive
traffic to it because you will get high conversions. Also you can include
a blog and landing page

Yes, I am with Triblu on this response...

Hey Tony,

Google searching your question (see screen print below...) it sounds like a type of website that SEO agencies own, offering backlinks from, in order to increase an owner's SEO through backlinks.

Scrolling down the search results and scanning other's snippets makes it more likely to be what the SEO agencies use.

What were you reading that made you ask this question?

You can also gain recognition from sharing news about your offers on press releases, if you do the write up properly. Those types of backlinks / mentions last a LOT longer than backlinks from SEO agency that pull the plug on links once you stop their monthly payment plans.

Hope you find this helpful.

Thanks your response was very helpful.

I was reading a review on the "Four Percent Program " created by an online Marketer. He offered a webinar schedule sent to your email to sit in on the session. Yes, as usual he is offering a product.

In need of free Cropping tool so I can edit and reduce my images for creating website or web pages. Any Suggestions , had Gadwin program but unable to contact the company

You can use tiny jpg
This will help you reduce your images without any loss.

Just upload them to Tiny it will reduce your images without loss then when done simply download them back to your computer

It will also tell you how much it has been reduced it is free to use and a great tool to have.

https://tinyjpg.com/

Andre

Sure.. MS Paint and the Photo program that is default to windows 10(don't know if windows 11 has it)...
Both offer cropping and resizing tools.

Resizing is best used before adding image to media library.

Crop images only to trim, and not to resize the image.

Rudy

Thanks !

Sure!

Rudy

You might want to look at BeFunky....It's a free, easy to use cropping tool that also allows you to set your aspect ratio.

Susan

Cool Thanks !

I use Canva, it has a great free version.
Good luck!

Melanie

Ok, Thanks!

I have some pages created on PowerPoint. Can the Canva help with Cropping and screen shooting
My images create on PowerPoint. So to use some of them for web pages ?

I'm not sure about all the capabilities of Canva, it's free to join, which allows you to check out all the features before going pro.

Thank You !

I use MS Office Picture Manager and find it excellent. Unfortunately, it's no longer provided with Windows or Office but downloads can be found by searching. Canva may be another possibility.

Cool, Thanks !

Keyword, Niche and Market Research

Hello WA Fam !

Asking if the Combination of Video and Article Marketing, along with social media will help me target my niche audiences ?

Actually, a little of all that will enhance your website and get more traffic.

I believe yes.

You need to test what works and what doesn't one element at a time, and give it its needed time.

Lots of folks run their businesses on YouTube alone.

We like to create posts on our website and rather than use someone else's YouTube videos create our own. That way we have them in the YouTube channel which attracts viewers and in our website post as well.

Hey Tony,

Over a year ago now, I took a video course on creating video reviews to compliment my blog post reviews.

It can work for you in that you would create a YouTube channel to host your videos, and then embed those reviews in your blog posts, so to prove the value of your video reviews.

This doubles your exposure to search engines for the same topic.

Hope you find this helpful.

WOW, AWESOME !

Thanks For Sharing !

I don't see why not, Tony! Try it out, my friend!

Jeff

Cool, Thanks Jeff !

You're welcome, Tony! I am of the opinion that it certainly cannot hurt, my friend!

Jeff

Always good to Test the waters before swimming.

LOL !!!!!!!

Very true, indeed!

Video Marketing

Hello WA Family, a question has been asked to me about the difference between a Podcast and Webinar. What is the difference and which one attracts more audiences?

Hi Tony,

A podcast is an audio-only forum for voicing one's views, and opinions and featuring guests.

A webinar is specifically intended to teach and is video based. The host can make these interactive or a one-way process.

Both of these are given live, with recordings often available.

I hope this helps.

Edwin

It Does, Thank You !

Podcasts are audio, whereas webinars can include audio and in addition video and other multimedia.

I've been a guest on many podcasts as well as many webinars.

Usually a podcast is a recording of just a host and a guest or two, focusing on a specific topic; that recording is just one of a series of regular recordings done by the host.

A webinar focuses on discussing or teaching a specific topic. It's usually a singular event rather than one in a series. It could be simply one person teaching on the topic, or a panel discussing the topic.

Hope that helps!

Cool, Thanks !

It seems like most Podcasts today are audio-only, even though video podcasts do exist. Maybe podcasting has really grown out of a need for background content. That means something that can entertain you, educate you or inspire you in the background of other boring or rote activities.

But YouTube videos are definitely something to see and listen.

YouTube Video's are good, because It is one of my go to for learning how to do certain things. A very big help, with lots of tutorials.

Thanks !

Hey Tony,

I'm with you on that question, simply because soooo many people are now calling video recording of more than one person chatting, a podcast.

Check out the screen print below...

So, now podcasts are:
1.) pre-recorded
2.) offer no interactivity
3.) timing (tend to be shorter then webinars)
4.) and accessibility

For me, if I were to do a podcast, it would strictly be audio, as I've heard so many listeners enjoying listening to podcasts as they work and/or drive.

Hope you find this helpful.

Hey, Thanks !

I like too listen to tapes and CD's because I
won't miss much visually and I can always
play back the recording. I take better notes
with Audios also. Thanks for the Info.

Authoring & Writing Content

Ever have those moments when you want to write something but you are stuck in thinking mode. How do you avoid and stay out of writer's block ?

When I get stuck for content to write, I look around my groups on the social platforms and see what questions are being asked.
Stephen

Very good, Stephen.

Let us know if that has helped.

Thank You, Very Helpful ! 😎

You're very welcome.

You might find this interesting, as a structured approach can get the creative juices flowing again:

Sometimes for inspiration I see what my competitors are doing and writing. That usually gives me inspiration because I have new ideas that go beyond what they present.

Thanks, this was very helpful ! 😎
