We've been busy, busy, busy and we've got some fantastic news! We have recently added another person to our design crew!
This past week I had the pleasure of presenting at the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce for their Summer Lunch & Learn series. I was asked to speak about social media and how to use social tools to further your website and online marketing efforts. We had a great group of business professionals from all over town who were very inquisitive and excited about the possibilities for their own businesses.
It's common for many people to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of the work day. Many times we even forget to take a break to clear our thoughts and exercise our creativity.
One thing that relatively famous designers, developers and writers in the Apple/Web/design community get asked to do is detail their hardware and software setups. The theory, I suppose, is that if you use the same tools as incredibly productive and smart people, you might become as incredibly productive and smart as they are. There are a few sites dedicated to such articles, serving as inspiration to the unwashed masses.
I was recently reading a Josh Jones blog post about web hosting and the challenges of providing free email services. This is an issue we know all too well here at Pleth, LLC.
There is a huge trend floating around many businesses on Facebook—giveaways, contests and promotions. This is a fun and interactive way to connect with your customers via social media, but there are a few rules you have to follow or you'll run the risk of getting the boot.
What's the difference? We get this question a lot. Let's go through a short definition of each.
We've had a busy week at Pleth: meetings with new and current clients, designing websites, developing mobile applications and training business owners on social media—we haven't stopped moving!
One of the many services we offer here at Pleth is mobile application development. The world of mobile applications, or "apps," is a fairly new one to most businesses and it can be difficult to decide if it is something you could benefit from. The first place to start is to see who's using apps and see if those people are within your target demographic.
We had the pleasure of spending our day yesterday at the Jonesboro Business Expo hosted by the Jonesboro Chamber of Commerce. This was our first time attending this expo and due to our growth in the Jonesboro, Ark. area, we were very excited to meet new businesses, connect with old friends and enrich our relationships with current customers.
