The end of the year is a great time of year to go and check how what your website's traffic has been doing over the year. This video tutorial explains how to login and go through some of the basic data results and understand what they mean and how you can use this to your advantage.
My biggest pet hate is seeing new businesses get ripped off. There are people out there that prey on newbies and thier lack of knowledge. I decided to do this post after a new client of mine told me that he paid $160 for a domain name for 2 years and $120 for a business email address. This is absolutely extortionate!!!!!
So why did he pay that much? Well after he created an ABN, a company contacted him and told him that they were THE provider of domain names, business email accounts and hosting in Australia. Basically, they falsely mislead him into thinking that they were the only provider out there.
So here's the deal. Anyone that COLD CALLS you, be it via email, phone call or letter, is probably out to rip you off. You should always investigate pricing for yourself before agreeing to anything. Often they will tell you that this offer is only avalible if you sign up straight away. Another huge red flag.
Watch my short video to find out how much you should really be paying for domain name registration and business email accounts.
When you're running an ecommerce store and selling other people's products, it's not always easy to get the images from the suppliers, in fact sometimes it's like pulling teeth!. I've put together a quick tutorial to show you how to go online and find clean, high quality images for your site as well as how to prep them using photoshop or other image editing software if they need it. I also talk about ideal pixel sizes and shapes for ecommerce stores as well as making sure your images are named with SEO in mind.
Ignore this second video. just testing a theory. :)
