Is Your Logo Pulling Its Weight?

Two weeks ago, I shared tips to determine whether your website needed some updates or a total redo. If you’re redoing your site, look closely at your logo first.

Do You Need a New Logo?

When you first started your business, you may have designed your own logo or had a friend who could do nice PowerPoints help you out. Maybe it was impossible to afford a logo.

But now that you are more established, your original logo may not be on par with your business growth and success. You may be hurting your image with a logo that doesn’t represent the level of service offerings.

"A professional business should look professional." Smashing Magazine

Logos are powerful. They communicate your business identity and your professionalism. A poor quality logo can work against you and send the wrong message to prospects. But how can you tell if you need a new one?

Checklist to Determine if You Need a New Logo

  1. Was your logo created by a professional graphic designer, or preferably a logo specialist? They are the ones who draw from scratch.
  2. Have your clients ever complimented your logo? You are appealing to them, they should like your logo.
  3. Does your logo have a stock image or stock illustration? If so, you will not be able to trademark it because it is already copyrighted. This is a sign the quality of your logo is probably low; get something unique that markets like a rock star for your business.
  4. Does your logo use legal fonts? Sometimes new designers or amateurs do not properly check out copyrights; it’s possible they just Googled the font.
  5. Are you happy with your logo? Does it communicate your brand effectively? If not, hire a graphic designer to evaluate it.
  6. Have your services or product offerings changed significantly? Using a logo that reflects your old business model may be confusing prospective clients.

If alarms are going off in your head while reading these criteria, it’s time to start asking business colleagues for their logo designer recommendations.

Steer Clear of the Crowdsourcing Logo Websites

Logo design (and website design) is a consultation process. You want your designer to know your business well. Also there are a number of copyright infringement horror stories resulting in bills for illegally used images, etc. It can be a crap shoot. Quality takes time, so skip the shortcuts.

A high quality logo is a fantastic marketing tool that tells clients who you are and makes a great impression.

How do you feel about your logo?

Don’t Let WordPress Trick You into Thinking It’s Easy

Climber

Are You Still Doing Your Own Website?

I recently celebrated my two-year anniversary of blogging. One issue that keeps surprising me is why so many established business owners think they need to be going the DIY route?

Most businesses are strapped for cash at the beginning and hiring out is not possible. WordPress fortunately makes establishing an online presence possible. Learning WordPress may take awhile, but if you have an ounce of tech knowledge, you can probably get a theme setup and populate it with some content with an off-the-shelf template.

However, once your business is more established and you have some moolah in the bank, it is time to revisit the DIY approach. And I would state this would be more than just your website (I include myself in the finger wagging). The more successful you become, the more expensive it is to lose time on tasks that are not your skill set; after all, how many of us can quickly do our own bookkeeping?

This is where WordPress and other accessible content management systems can be misleading. The ability to post and edit content on a website does not mean you are a professional designer and coder.

Advantages to Letting the Pros Design Your Website

  • Website design and publishing is a fast-moving industry. It isn’t possible to keep up on all the trends (or trends you should give a pass). Web designers will steer you towards appropriate solutions.
  • You are never done learning to code, staying up to date on latest standard techniques, and configuring for constantly-evolving devices websites are accessed from. However, your web designer probably knows HTML5 is the latest version for today’s technology.
  • Web design is similar to graphic design for the web, except it isn’t static and you can’t think like print. Many web designers are former graphic designers that learned advanced HTML, CSS, and more. Their job is to make sure your design is not just decoration but communication!
  • An effective web designer will take the time to learn your audience and translate that information into a design that is part of your marketing. A template does not know who your audience is or what is appropriate.
  • Web design is an expertise. As fun as it is to do it yourself, an established business is better off hiring a professional to make sure its website is its most effective presence on the web.

Remember: a prospective client who wants to learn more about your business will go to your website first.

Start of the Year Website Checklist

2015 Website Checklist

2015 Website Checklist

Things to Consider

Some of you are thinking if it’s time to redo your website, or if there are aspects that need updating? These tips will help you determine whether to tweak things a bit or to redesign your website completely.

The Tweaks

  • What is your copyright date – is it 2015? We’ll wait while you check (cue Jeopardy music). Hopefully it auto updated for you (PHP sites usually do, but not all). If it isn’t, this is a fairly simple coding fix depending on where it resides – hire a web designer or developer to help.
  • Does your contact form work? These do go bad, so it’s worth checking.
  • Is your WordPress version 4.1? Backup your website first, then update. Security is the main reason you want to have the latest. Malware fixes due to out-of-date software are $$$ or $$$$. Ouch. If you are uncomfortable doing this, get a web designer to help. Don’t be an ostrich now – security will nail you. It is not a matter of if, but when!
  • Are your plugins up to date and working? Login to your dashboard and install Better Plugin Compatibility Control, which will show you what versions of WordPress your plugins are working with to help evaluate.
  • Any broken links? Use Broken Link Checker to scan your site, but if you install this plugin, be sure to remove it once you are done – it is a bit of a resource hog for your server and slows your website.
  • Check individual pages – everything look ok? Video links broken, images not showing?
  • How about your content (text)? Is it up to date? Does it answer questions for potential clients? Reading through it is worth an hour or two to be sure.
  • "Powered Proudly by WordPress" in the footer? Yikes! You are a business, you don’t want it to look like "cousin Joe the tech wiz" did your website. Remove it.

Web Trends and Tech Changes – Time for a Redesign?

Here are some points to consider when deciding if it’s time for a redo or refresh to stay current.

  • Text size. You should be using at least 16 pixel font sizes (not points) for best readability. If you are on 12, your site is hard for folks to read for retina screens (most things Apple) and mobile devices. If they have to squint, they may leave.
  • Outdated web trends. Do you have a content box that has large rounded corners (vertical rectangle with all your website text)? This technique was really overused in recent years and about as current as those bell-bottom pants in the closet. (Oh and skip sliders – they are trending out because they don’t convert site visitors.)
  • Has it been more than three years and you have a desktop-only website? Responsive design (mobile-friendly) is now marked by Google in search results on mobile devices. It is the standard. If you aren’t mobile friendly, you’re frustrating website visitors. Mobile usage surpassed desktop usage in 2014 for websites.
  • Okay, enough about mobile – if your site was produced more than three years ago, the bottom line is it’s old! Flash has "left the building," web browsers are constantly updating, computers and devices are always changing… yikes! Functionality may come into question with outdated code and expired web trends like an embossed button just look like you don’t care about your online presence. Remember: people go to your website to check your business out! Time for a refresh.

If you are an established business, consider hiring a pro to redesign your website. After all, you wouldn’t hire a plumber to do your taxes, would you?

Web designers can customize design solutions that best fit your audience. They know all those pesky trends, and will keep you looking professional. Make 2015 the year your website design is part of your marketing toolkit.

Will you be updating your website this year?

WordPress 4.1 – Backup, Double Check, Then Update

WordPress 4-1 Dinah

WordPress 4.1

Before you get all excited and install the new version of WordPress, do some housekeeping to keep your website safe. It isn’t 4.0 with a huge change, but it’s always possible your theme or plugins may not be ready for you to upgrade to WordPress 4.1.

Step 1 – Backup Your Website

Do a full backup of your website. This way if you need to do a recovery you can without lost time and angst! I use Backup Buddy (40% off right now – affiliate link) but it can be fussy; VaultPress is probably the easier solution if you aren’t a techie. Whichever your method, backing up your business website is a necessity. If you aren’t already doing this, give yourself peace of mind and get this setup (or contact me, I’ll do it for you).

Backup your website to a separate location (off your webhost server). You can even download it to your computer.

Step 2 – Check Your Theme and Plugins for Compatibility

  • First check your theme. Hop over to your theme developer website and check to see if your theme is compatible with WordPress version 4.1. It’s not unusual for a theme to age out. If yours is older than two years, DO NOT skip this step. Hopefully your theme developer has that information posted (or you can put in a support ticket and ask.)
  • Check Your Version of WordPress. If it’s been a while, check in the lower right-hand corner of the WP Dashboard to see what version you have (or go to the Update tab.) Before you upgrade, be sure to backup your website!
  • Check Your Plugins. I use Better Plugin Compatibility Control to save time. Once you have installed the plugin, go to the Installed Plugins tab under Plugins and check which version of WordPress your plugins are compatible with. You will see the info displayed next to "Edit" under the plugin name.

Plugin

  • Update Your Plugins. If any old plugins need updating, it might be wise to do this now. Also after you update WordPress to 4.1, some plugins will need to be updated again with newer versions that work with 4.1.

If you have done the above, on to the fun!

Step 3 – Update to WordPress 4.1

OK, you did a full backup of the website and downloaded it to a separate location, you have checked the theme and plugins are compatible (if not, hold off until they are). Cruise on over in your WP Dashboard to the Updates tab at the top and click on "Install Now." Happy dance!

Now before we go all disco, look at the front of your website and make sure everything is okay. If there’s a problem with your dashboard or a plugin, hopefully that’s evident at this stage. That is why you need a backup; restore the backup and figure out what might not be ready for WordPress 4.1.

Dude – Not My Scene

If you find the above overwhelming or simply don’t have the time, sign-up for our Security maintenance plan. It includes backups, updates to plugins and WordPress software. Get peace of mind today!

Shiny! New Tools For Your Blog

Blog tools

Blog tools

Yes, I admit it, I’m a Firefly fan – if you didn’t know where the quote "shiny!" came from… there you go.

Speaking of shiny… lately there have been some new plugins surfacing that can help you be more productive with your blog. For those of you maintaining a blog – automation and enhancements will get you those "shiny" responses!

I’ll share some of the things that have me excited.

Automate Posting to Social Media

Don’t you love time savers? Here are three worth considering to cut down on your social media tasks when promoting your latest blog post!

  • Twibble. Twibble will tweet your latest blog post title and URL to Twitter WITH your featured image. The latter is particularly important since having a nice big photo in the Twitter stream brings attention to your blog post. Similar to Dlvr.it, Twibble uses your RSS feed to grab your latest post. Unlike Dlvr.it, you can schedule what time your tweet is posted. I love solutions like this because it means no plugin that has to be updated.
  • Post Promoter Pro – I finally purchased the plugin for myself (have a client using it). For those of you who want to work on Tweet phrases etc inside WordPress instead of an outside service, this is for you! Once you have published your blog post, you can go to the Scheduler tab of Post Promoter inside WP. You can edit the times and titles (phrases) to what you prefer. Post Promoter works with Twitter and LinkedIn with Facebook coming out in the next release.
  • Dlvr.it – I keep discovering new gold with this service. Dlvr.it will auto post your latest blog post title with a URL to your social networks. Although it isn’t clear in their instructions, they do offer posting of photos too. It isn’t turned on automatically to post photos; go to the pencil icon for your RSS feed (on left) to bring up the Source Editor and click on "post photos." In addition to posting your title and URL to social networks, you can customize the text to be added such as "via @YourTwitterName," which is nice so people know who it’s from. To post to Google+ you need the premium plan.

While On the Blog

I’ll be honest – many social share plugins are eyesores, taking too much attention away from your content. Design tip: keep it simple with icons! Fancy is out, simple is in! This is one of the web trends that has definitely changed, so don’t go to fussy with the social media share stuff.

  • Simple Share Buttons Adder – still loving this plugin. Social sharing without the bloat of the popular ones which really kill your website download speed (turn off counters, though!). I wrote a post last month if you want to check it out and it has a pro option, too.
  • Related Posts for WordPress – trying this out. Showing related posts at the end of an article you enjoyed is a nice feature. Not only that, but Google counts reader time on a site as part of your bounce rate. My related posts plugin nRelate is closing its doors this month so I am trying out Related Posts for WordPress. Has a premium option if you want more control. Still working out the kinks but so far pretty nice – let me know what you think?

I hope that helps you be more productive with your blog post sharing needs.

Have a time saving tip for your website you want to share? Do tell!

The GRAMMYs and Going Mobile!

Paquito D'Rivera website

Paquito DRivera Website

Congrats to my client, Paquito D’Rivera, on his second GRAMMY win for the album "Song for Maura" with Trio Corrente. First with the GRAMMYs and second one with the Latin GRAMMYs.

I was caught off guard by an informal email, "We just won a Latin GRAMMY… we need something good online!" It was 6:00 pm and I was getting ready to sign off for the day. I didn’t realize it was THE DAY!

Artwork – so what are the Latin GRAMMYs using to promote their stuff? Off I went because if you are going to announce winning a GRAMMY, you need something in sync with what they are using. The website itself was still airing the broadcast and the only sign of the win was the updated web page. Obviously they still had a long ways to go. No help there. Next stop was Twitter – yikes! The updates were way behind. It took until 9:30 pm, but finally I had something I could use (screenshot of the win announcement) and a style I could go by. In the meantime, I quickly created some artwork they could use the next day for a blog post announcement and fired off to the client for approval.

Working with such a talented client and management, is fun because it keeps me on my toes!

Website in the Queue

It hit me after all the excitement – Shoot! The new website is just hours from being finished! We were converting the Paquito D’Rivera website at Arts Assistance to a brand new responsive (mobile) design. Traffic to the website would be spiking and wouldn’t it be nice to have the new website live?

I don’t know how my client’s management survived my many emails – but we got the proofing done and went live within 24 hours. WAHOO!

Google Favors Mobile In Searches

It has been four years since the last website design update for the artist. You might not be aware, but there has been a fundamental shift in website development. Responsive design (mobile friendly) has become the new standard since 2010 (some may say even 2009). Even Google is trying to push for everyone to convert. But we needed the right image and design that reflected the personality of the artist and finally we had the perfect picture!

Within three days of launching – Google had indexed the new website. Wow!

What You Need to Know

Google now identifies mobile-friendly websites in search engine results to mobile users. Why? Because no one on a phone wants to squint at tiny type!

Check out the screen shot I took of Google search results.

google search result

Google definitely favors mobile sites. For businesses, desktop-only websites that aren’t mobile friendly are losing to competitors who made the switch.

Make 2015 the year you switch to a responsive design so your site is viewable to all device users. After all, doesn’t everyone use their smartphone to surf the web?

A Dying Trend – Sliders

Slider Sample

Slider Sample

In web design, trends come and go and you learn to keep an eye out for them. The life span of popular trends can take a nosedive rather quickly with websites. Sometimes trends start to die out for good reasons.

Let’s take sliders, for example. They’ve become so ubiquitous with sites it’s hard to avoid them. If you were having a site designed, you wanted one because doesn’t everyone? It’s the thing to do.

In the last two years, I have had to talk many clients out of the idea. If you weren’t a heavy picture-producing company with a portfolio, why would you need one? They require a lot of maintenance to keep them fresh. Yes they were pretty, but were they appropriate?

Sliders Don’t Sell

I wouldn’t necessarily agree with the notion that "sliders don’t sell" since they do benefit certain people, like interior designers. Obviously they have a lot of photos to feature and the judicious use of sliders might be a good introduction. Just don’t make it the only way to view pictures; don’t overwhelm the content, and keep in mind they have usability problems (can’t use the keyboard to access, for example).

Banner Blindness

Most companies have content or offers they need to feature to entice the user to venture further into a website. Unfortunately, sliders (a.k.a. carousels) haven’t lived up to the promise of engaging users. They seemed to have developed "banner blindness."

Wednesday, industry leader Jeffrey Zeldman tweeted a link about sliders from his leading web design conference "An Event Apart." The tweet shared a link to the website "Should I Use A Carousel?" produced a year ago. It was the first time I’ve seen it, but I was already aware of other articles indicating that people simply ignored them. They were used too much; it made sense that people skipped them to get to the content – you know, information we actually want and need.

Here are some quotes from "Should I Use A Carousel?"

"1% clicked a feature. Of those, 89% were the first position. 1% of clicks for the most significant object on the home page?" nd.edu stats by @erunyon

Ouch – 1% for a site that has over a million hits! Here are more:

"We have tested rotating offers many times and have found it to be a poor way of presenting home page content." Wider Funnel in "Rotating Offers, the Scourge of Home Page Design"

"Carousels are effective at being able to tell people in Marketing/Senior Management that their latest idea is on the Home Page. Use them to put content that users will ignore on your Home Page. Or, if you prefer, don’t use them. Ever." Lee Duddell

"Carousels pose accessibility issues for keyboard and screen reader users that simply cannot be adequately addressed by markup or hacks. Carousels are this decade’s <blink> tag." Jared Smith

The data has been pouring in on the ineffectiveness of sliders, which means this trend is dying. Ineffective techniques get the boot by those making websites. So for your next website – give this a pass!

FYI – a word to the wise with looking at theme sellers. Since people love the look of sliders, you’ll see them as the last bastion of website makers promoting sliders. They target the uninformed buyer who most likely doesn’t have a developer to clue them in.

What do you think of sliders? Do you notice them or simply continue scrolling to get to what you’re looking for?

Bigger Font Sizes Mean Fewer Wrinkles!

Cute wrinkled dog

Cute wrinkled dog

Can we apply anti-aging tips to font sizes? Sure, why not? All that squinting to read stuff might cause crows feet! Egads!

Okay, so you might not be too worried about wrinkles, but you want your audience to be able to read your websites and emails, right? They probably don’t want to squint to see them; if it’s too frustrating, they may give up and leave. A savvy marketer wants the reader to stick around – that is just common sense.

What’s Your Size?

Let’s take a quick survey!

If you aren’t sure you can check at Stylifyme. So if you are wondering what size you need to be less squinty? Well, it depends.

What Font Size Should You Use?

It is going to depend on the font your body content (paragraphs for example) is using. Typically nothing under 16 pixels. Some fonts run small, you may need to beef them up to 18 pixels (Please note pixels, not points).

But isn’t the standard 12 pixels? Yes, and a few years ago that would have been fine; however, technology doesn’t stand still. Computer and mobile phones have increased resolution display sizes in recent years. Everything looks smaller which means, oh no, those 12 pixel fonts look TINY.

For example:

  • Yo – I’m 12 pixels
  • That is so yesterday – I’m 14 pixels!
  • Puhleese who says that? I’m 16 pixels!
  • (Flexing arm muscles) bigger is better, I’m 18 pixels!

Depending on your screen resolution – that will really vary on how that looks for you.

Whoa – What About Emails?

Mobile phone users have really nice resolutions. They have extra squinty text challenges.

Resolutions are so advanced on phones, I took the advice of EmailOnAcid (an email testing service) on recommended phone font sizes. Phone users for my newsletters see 24 pixel font sizes for the body copy.

You can apply this to a website also. Media queries allows you to target mobile users; just set the body copy to 24 pixels instead of the usual 16 pixels. I have done this with 2 websites recently and my clients love it.

Do I Really Need a Home Page Button?

Confusing directions

Confusing directions

How Sophisticated Are Your Website Visitors?

This is important to consider when you decide upon navigation for your website. People have little patience and usually aren’t willing to spend much time looking for things on your site.

Here are two hot topics that you should consider for your navbar:

How Do You Get to the Home Page?

If you’re on a website exploring and can’t find what you are looking for, you might be inclined to return to the home page.

Hopefully, your audience doesn’t need to go back to the home page to look for anything. If they do, your navigation isn’t clear, and may need some adjustments so people can find what they are looking for (check search results in Google Analytics or check your search plugin if you have one).

Is there a right answer to A, B or C? Not really, but wowza, you’d be surprised how strongly people feel about these answers. Here is how it breaks down:

  1. Home button users are not explorers; they haven’t figured out most logos go to the home page. These users are probably older and used to seeing the home button or icon more prevalent on sites developed prior to 2008.
  2. Logo clickers have figured out this shortcut to the home page. These folks are on the computer a lot (both young and old). They appreciate shortcuts, so if they are "desk jockeys" they probably know.
  3. If a logo is missing, a techie type will be impatient and just edit the URL in the browser. It works – try it!

Casual Users. If you know casual computer users are the majority visiting your website, you might need a Home button. It isn’t sophisticated, but it works! But also link the logo to the home page – don’t hang the sophisticated users out to dry.

Sophisticated Users. If you have mostly sophisticated users, they know the logo goes to the home page. Skip the Home button. If they’re your main audience, don’t dumb it down with a "Home" button; it will not make a good impression. Oh and don’t worry about the URL editing folks, they are surviving quite nicely.

Why Worry About One or the Other?

The Home button on a horizontal navigation bar takes up VALUABLE space, so it’s important; don’t base design decisions on the minority! Focus instead on the majority of your target audience!

What? The Top Button Goes to a Page?

These days the navigation bar links are usually pure text instead of images. But when they were images (pre 2007), the top-level button with a drop down menu underneath was just a holder that went nowhere, like a subject button.

But once menus became more accessible, retailers and other large sites, hated wasting valuable "real estate" on a navigation bar. Top-level buttons are hugely important.

This one is definitely a hot topic. Not everyone has realized times have changed. Websites now link a page to the top-level button.

Fortunately only the minority haven’t learned the top-level button goes somewhere. Online retailers have taught us everything is clickable!

If you have a lot of drop down links underneath a top button, you might want to make the top-level page (we call that the parent level) a guide to the rest with links. This will make it easy for your visitors.

Don’t Forget a Search Box

Tip: provide an easy to find search box. It shouldn’t supersede your marketing, but at the very least put it in the footer or as the last thing on the sidebar. Check results of searches (your analytics) to see if your navigation needs some adjustments.

Do you go back to the Home page when you are lost on a website?

Setting Up and Installing Sucuri

Sleepy Puppy and all good things that are fuzzy

Sleepy Puppy and all good things that are fuzzy

Okay, so you have decided you don’t want to wait for disaster to strike. Or it has happened before and you really don’t want to go through a hacked site cleanup again.

Sucuri is one of the leading tools to protect your website.

I’ve outlined the steps to get you started with Sucuri (the paid version) to save you some time. And can I say congrats for being a smart business person, an ounce of prevention will likely save you a wad of $$$ down the line. Malware cleanup is not a cool business expense!

Be Smart, Get Sucuri and Protect Your Website

First, sign-up for a Sucuri paid account (affiliate link). Yes they have a free plugin but it doesn’t include cleanup and customer support, etc. (they are good about answering quickly).

Once you get your lovely new account, roll up your sleeves, it’s time for some setup.

  • Go login to Sucuri.net.
  • To add your website, go to the "Website Monitoring" tab on the left (probably the default you might be there already). For a new account, scroll past the video to "Add Default Website" and add your URL in the field.
  • Click on "Add Website" on the right add the URL in the box and click submit. (They have a video for just this step http://kb.sucuri.net/videos/sucuri-welcome-intro .)
  • You should now be on "Website Monitoring". To the right of the website domain name click on the gear shift icon to go to the Monitoring panel.
  • Modify monitoring type to every 3 hours for Malware and add WHOIS monitoring for every 6 hours.
  • Click on button "Enable Email Reports" and put in your email address where you want to be notified.
  • Scroll down to the "Server Side Scanner Settings" area and click on the "Enable Manually" tab.
  • Download the Sucuri php file in step #2. Keep this panel page open.
  • Upload the Sucuri file to the public HTML (root) of the server for the website via FTP.
  • Go back to step #3 inside Sucuri and click the green button to "Verify File and Enable".
  • Yeah, your website is now being scanned by Sucuri.

WordPress Plugin – The Missing Link

Want to know what is happening from your WordPress dashboard… follow these next steps.

This is hard to find, access for the plugin isn’t available from the Sucuri.net dashboard. Sad face! I asked support and they gave me the link. The plugin at wordpress.org is not the same one – we are talking about the premium plugin which currently is separate. *

  • Login to Sucuri.net and go to https://wordpress.sucuri.net.
  • Click on the "Download" link at the top.
  • Login to the WordPress site at domain.com/login (of the site you are working on).
  • Go to "Plugins" on the left dashboard and "Add New" tab.
  • Click on "Upload Plugin" at the top.
  • Choose the Sucuri-wp-plugin.zip file and "Install Now".
  • Activate the plugin by clicking on the activate link.
  • Sucuri will display a message to "Activate" Sucuri.
  • On the Sucuri dashboard in WordPress you will need to get the API keys. Login to Sucuri.net (the provided link does not redirect properly and instead goes to the Website monitoring panel.) Enter the https://wordpress.sucuri.net/ URL to get to the WordPress panel after you login.
  • Click on the "Settings" menu at the top (you might already be there).
  • Add the URL of the website "Add a new WordPress site for monitoring:"
  • Copy the Authentication Key. Go back to the Sucuri dashboard within the website WordPress dashboard, and paste in the key at "SUCURI API KEY".
  • Setup "Main Settings" and select "Save values".

Ah, security Zen!

This is too Geeky For Me

This is one of several plugins I use to monitor website security. Get Sucuri and a host of other monitoring tools to keep your website in top form! No geek speek required. Read more.

* "The free plugin will be replacing the Premium plugin in the coming weeks. Eventually, there will only be one plugin. If you have the premium plugin, and install the free version, the free version will overwrite the premium version."

Only one plugin will be available and you enter your code to access the premium features.
