Marketing Your Site What's New ?
So Now You Have A Website

What next? How do you make it work for you? Can you make your website work as hard for your business as your best employee? The most important question is can I make my website pay for itself?

The answer to all of these questions depend on the actions you take next. The first step I would take after having a website built for my business is to set up a schedule for updating the content on my new site. Simply schedule a regular time each day, week or month to review and update your website. The schedule depends upon the type of business you are in. An online store needs more attention than a brochure type website. A site with a blog calls for periodic additions to the blog. Whatever the need, set a schedule and stick to it.

The second step is to look for ways to utilize your website to reduce staff time on unproductive activities. I have written extensively about this in the past but a few examples are posting product tutorials that free staff of having to perform product demonstrations. Post frequently asked questions and the answers on your website. Webinars and other online activities can reduce travel expense, increase potential audiences and reduce staff and associate travel time.

Third, advertise and promote your website. Let customers and potential customers know the site exists and what type of content it offers. Drive people to your website with sales, little known information and relevant content. Think about your website as the staff member that never sleeps, takes a day off or goes on vacation.

Fourth, develop a system for dealing with leads generated from your site, questions asked via email and site comments. Treat these visitor interactions the same as face to face transactions.

These basic tips will get you started. Stay tuned as we look in to other ways to make your website work for you.
A 32 MPH All-Terrain Electric Skateboard Steered With a Kinect

Yes, You read that correctly. Popular Science has an article highlighting the creator named "Board of Awesomeness" built by Chaotic Moon. The skateboard can reportedly reach speeds of 32mph and is voice, data and motion controlled. (Video is available via the Popular Science link)

I know people that shouldn't be allowed to drive cars at 32mph let alone a skate board. This is one of the geekiest (doesn't make it bad) items I have come across in a long time. It certainly opens eyes regarding the power of some of the current gaming systems.

Combining a skateboard, a laptop and Kinect seems like a recipe for disaster but this mix of technology could have several meaningful applications. The possibilities of combined technology are endless and promise to continue to surprise us as they develop.

More Funny Facebook Comments and Statuses
1. "Good morning...I see the assassins have failed."
2. I believe that if you tell your boss what you really think of him, the truth will set you free.
3. People reckon I'm too patronizing (that means I treat them as if they're stupid).
4. I have an oven with a 'stop time' button. It's probably meant to be 'stop timer' but I don't touch it, just in case.
5. I went to the store to buy a 'Where's Wally' book. I couldn't find one anywhere. Well played Wally, well played.
6. TEIAM - problem solved
7. Statistically, 6 out of 7 dwarfs aren't happy.
8. Hi, my name is Damimeve. The 'mime' is silent. ( I love Mime Jokes)
9. Do you know what really makes me smile? Facial muscles.
10. I just read a list of 'the 100 things to do before you die'. I'm pretty surprised 'yell for help' wasn't one of them..

Bonus:
I placed a bottle of Anti-Freeze in the freezer. Let the battle begin.
The most awkward part of meeting new people is when my kids say, “Please help us.”
The letters 'T' and 'G' are far too close together on a keyboard. This is why I'll never be ending an e-mail with the phrase "Regards" ever again.
