How to Guest Blog in Light of Google’s Restrictions

You Shall Not Pass

At the beginning of 2014, Google’s Matt Cutts made headlines by stating that guest blogging was dead. This caused a lot of stir in the online community. People naturally got defensive and protested this as unfair. After all, hasn’t almost everyone used guest blogging to help with SEO at some point or another?

In late March, Cutts followed through on his statement and shut down a popular guest blogging website called MyBlogGuest. This proved he was serious about his campaign against guest…

Alleged New Teen “Smoking” Trend Has No SM Presence (Yet)

e cigarettes

There was a time when teen smoking was the ultimate for any bad boy (or girl), which of course led to a lifetime of addiction. The good news is that the teen smoking rates, and adult rates, have been dwindling in recent years. This is in part due to the influx and popularity of e-cigarettes which have been touted as a great tool to wean smokers off of their addiction. It’s safer with less nicotine, zero smoke and tar, and smokers don’t get the death stare from passerby who want no part…

Is “Megafoot” Crowdsourcing’s New Craze?

Megafoot

If there is anything that can be said about nostalgia, it’s that its power is unlike anything else. It’s easy for anyone over a certain age to feel it, whether it’s due to hearing a song from his or her childhood mixed tape or recalling a familiar name from the Brat Pack. Whatever the case may be, it seems like nostalgia is among the many aspects associated with Project: MEGAFOOT, one of the latest Indiegogo products that is in the funding process.

How Social Media Can Serve Your Business

Server

Though most of us use social media as a way to keep up with friends or take photos of what we’re eating, it’s increasing its value and importance in many other fields. Specifically, social media and technology are helping businesses become more productive and do things that might once have been unimaginable.

It gives the little guys a chance to compete with Fortune 500 companies, and customers the ability to find everyone in between. If your company is looking for a change, but has yet…

How to Choose the Best Social Media Cover Images

Dealer Authority Facebook

Stop right now before you settle for a pre-selected Google+ cover image just because it’s there, it’s easy, and it was hand-picked by Google so it has to be a winner, right? Wrong; picking from a limited assortment of cover photos shows that you’re either lazy or uncreative, both of which don’t bode well for you whether it’s a business or personal social media (SM) profile. Like it or not, your cover image is just as important as your profile image and it depends on what type of…

The (Virtual) Reality of Facebook’s Future in Gaming

Oculus VR

In 1995, Nintendo released a video game system called the Virtual Boy, which was touted as a virtual reality gaming platform. In short, you would be able to feel as though you were in the environment of every game. This idea, while interesting on paper, was poor in terms of execution and it seemed like no one took a stab at virtual reality in gaming since then. Yes, there might have been rumblings here and there but no company wanted to make another attempt at it.

That was, however, until…

The Importance of Invoicing On Time

Coins

Your business just sold several products worth more than $500 in sales. The products are gone, and the customer is excited. Your next course of action is sending the invoice. An invoice provides detailed information about the sale, including product, pricing, and terms of sale. With many businesses requiring 30-day terms, you must send your invoice out quickly for a fast payment on the balance. Holding onto a sale without invoicing it can cause your business to enter the red.

Recycling Social Media Content is Getting Out of Hand

Tweet from 2013

I get it. I understand the need for more content to serve to an ever-growing flow of content consumers. The art of recycling content is important, particularly on sites like Twitter where a piece of content can and should be used multiple times in order to get the message out to everyone. It’s a chronological feed, after all, and posting it once will only get it seen by an extremely small portion of your audience.

With that said, it’s getting out of hand. I have been finding posts that are…
