Do you have a tsu account yet?

If so, do you also have a Fanpage you want to promote? Are you doing twice the work? Some of you might already know this, but if you don’t I would like to share a little tip to make promoting your posts to other networks such as facebook, twitter and instagram way easier.

Linking your Fanpage or personal Facebook page to your tsu account does a couple beneficial things.

1. Friends on FB who haven’t joined tsu yet will have an opportunity to join via your link. That gives you more chances to get children in your tree! 🙂

2. When you make one post on tsu, you can automatically publish that same post/pic/link to any linked social media accounts. Reach 3x of your followers with one post. 🙂

Keep in mind these pointers…

Facebook posts will show your links 2x. First is the original link and second is the link to your tsu post. I think this is just in case someone doesn’t want to register for tsu just to see your link.

I also noticed that “titles” don’t show up in the autopost to Facebook. To get around this, I just add the “title” as part of the body text to the post (right before the link).

Haven’t joined tsu yet?? What are you waiting for? Get in while it’s still generally new! www.tsu.co/jtrimm (invite only)

URGrafix will soon be offering custom designs for the super awesome Dope Jars. We can take your vision or logo and special order these jars to be used for whatever you want. I know what I will use mine for. .. 😉

You can purchase them online on Amazon. Perfect timing for Christmas gifts! If you have more than one (or three or four) you can stack and spin them even! Here are some of the current designs.

Managing your new Facebook Fanpage

So you have a new Facebook Fanpage,

now what?

When we create a custom Fanpage, we normally will assign our main contact person as a page manager. That means that just by logging into your own Facebook account (that we didn’t need any access to) you can access everything you need for your Fanpage as well.  You don’t have to log into anything extra, and the Fanpage won’t show your personal Facebook page information unless other managers viewing the page. Here we have put together a short tutorial on what to do with your new Facebook Fanpage (hopefully) created by your URGrafix team.

Step 1

Locate your fanpage in the left column of your Facebook Home Page (not profile page)

Invite your friends to like your new fanpage.

Click on the “Invite” button next to the friends you want to invite.

The friends who already like your page will have a checkmark & “Liked”. Click “Close” when finished.

Check for notifications here.

You can also check for notifications here, on the home screen.

Those are just a few tips that will get you started off right. Most of the rest is the same as managing your own Facebook page like commenting, replying, and creating new status updates. Stay tuned for more tutorials to help make the most of your new Facebook Fanpage. Please let us know if you have any questions, or comment on this post if you want more added. Thanks for reading! 🙂

Alien Insect Species found in Bonney Lake backyard

Alien’s attack Bonney Lake?

This video was actually shot right in our back yard in Bonney Lake. We thought it might be a Devil’s Coach Horse but I’m not so sure that it is… Anybody have a clue if that is or isn’t what we found here? It’s freaky and scary and… it’s in my backyard somewhere… yikes….

Showing Video – What the heck is that thing??

Benefits of having URGrafix help

with your small business graphics needs.

We don’t nickle and dime our clients.

A small budget can turn into a larger budget with our help!
As I was looking into ways to incorporate SEO into our website packages, I came across this article. I went through the process described as good SEO practice when using WordPress to build your website. We have been doing all these things all along and haven’t been charging any extra for it! 🙂 What is the point of a website that nobody can find? You don’t necessarily need a large monthly SEO package if the site is built with that in mind from the start. We like to educate our clients so they can help the process also. Once business has picked up and budgets get larger we can increase the traffic even more by hiring us to handle your SEO work.

WordPress: Great on budget and for SEO!

I found this article when trying to see if I was going the right route using WordPress in terms of SEO when compared to sites built with ASP.net. Looks like WordPress wins this battle! Glad fellow nerds out there agree that sites built with wordpress have better results. Not only does it save money to build websites using WordPress, it also helps them be found online!

Which scripting language is better for SEO ASP.net or PHP ?

ASp.net logoIf you are like me you want the best, fastest and easiest platform to work in that also provides the best search engine optimization (SEO) possible. Is there any advantage to using PHP over ASP.net? Many SEO professionals have said that ASP.net is slower to be indexed than a page that has an html or PHP extension. An ASP page has a .ASP or .ASPx extensions. Paul Anthony posted on SEOMoz,“ASP.NET , generally speaking – is a web spider’s worst nightmare.”

How do Search Engines Work?

Search engines use spiders or crawlers to discover web pages. These are programs that follow links from each webpage that is already in the search results database and the links on the next page they find and so on. Then the search engines catalog the web pages and define the title, description and keywords for each page. Next they will score the pages based upon their unique algorhythm. Then they create their search results database.

The easier it is for a spider to find the title, description, links and keywords on your webpage, the better. As a small business website owner it is our job to make the search spider’s job as easy as possible.

7 Great Ways to Build Client Loyalty

Getting customers is hard. Keeping them should be easier. But with fierce competitors building communities and aggressively marketing on price, you have to put real energy and effort into maintaining a consistent customer base.  Just providing a great product or service is rarely enough to keep them coming back for more.

In the consumer world, daily deal sites have eaten away at loyalty, but now the tech world is making an effort to bring loyalty marketing back in vogue. As easy as downloading an app, you can now shift hard-earned time and marketing dollars to pinpoint and secure tried-and-true loyalists. It seems loyalty is now trendy. Ido Gaver, CEO of loyalty-marketing platform LoyalBlocks, announced last week that his company has signed up over 40,000 new merchants in the last four months with their unique loyalty solution for small businesses and national franchises.  He was able to share his insights into making customers come back again and again.

Found this great article worth the read here.

Loyalty blocks talked about in the previous article is great for businesses with an actual retail shop or storefront. You don’t have to pay high prices to have actual cards designed & printed, you just need the app.

 

Try out LoyalBlocks!

URGrafix has grown quite a bit over the last year. Due to this growth we need to make some minor changes to how certain things are handled. Every client is treated as if they were high dollar big spenders and this is done without taking into consideration the time involved in certain tasks.

Starting 7/1/14, we will be offering an additional service to our website clients that include some of the following services. These are things that take time and with having many clients these little chunks of time add up quite a bit. We realize some of our clients might be turned off by this. Our hope is that our best clients will understand these things take time and our time is valuable as is yours.

We have put the time into researching the best and most cost effective ways to do these updates and you might find the price a lot more inexpensive than your time is to you. The items on these packages will no longer be done free of charge for our current website clients as of 7/1/2014.

*This is NOT included in your hosting charge. Hosting is a completely separate expense.
