NEW MARKETING TOOLS, TIPS & TECHNIQUES
We have been busy researching, learning and applying many new software & techniques to improve and keep up-to-date with all the changes continually coming on the internet! So, here are services for improved functionality and helpfulness to your business that we offer.
One important note: Email is changing constantly. We suggest that you download a copy of Outlook. There is a free one or as a Business there are a few different plans.
The reason we suggest this is many email carriers are moving away from hosting emails unless they are on a platform like Office 365. We can still offer affordable email through the webmail platform but you should set up Outlook so the email that comes into the webmail will transfer to the Outlook (which is stored on YOUR computer!) This allows for you to keep all archived emails you need. We have learned that with Webmail you cannot transfer archived emails. We can set up a new email account under your hosting account with us, but if you don’t have Outlook..you will not be able to bring older emails along. Basically, you will have the same email name ex: email@example.com but it will be like a new email with no history to date. With the Outlook, webmail receives the email but then sends it directly to your computer through Outlook. There are settings that will have the email on webmail to drop off after so many set days. This helps with usage data on the server so they don’t pile up there but you can have them at your fingertips on your own computer! We can help!
Mobile Apps – convert your website into an APP that loads faster, uses AI programming
Note: Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions.
VIDEOS – software that will take text and convert using AI to video or vice versa. YouTube is a big audience to promote on.
BLOGS – are making a comeback to build your online business…Caveat- they must be daily monitored and maintained.
