We’re excited to be sharing a new tutorial from a guest, Dr. Arnold Robinson III. We’ve previously featured him in a Customer Story, and as a Digital Marketing professor and expert, he's a great resource we can all learn from. For this tutorial, we’ll be learning how to optimize your photos for SEO (Search Engine Optimization) purposes.
This is important because search engines, like Google, use the keywords you include on a blog post to find and rank your content on the internet. If you optimize your site for better SEO, you will be ranked higher, and receive more organic traffic from search engines. More traffic to your site means more visitors reading your content, and could result in more sales or advertisement profits.

Disagreements in the workplace are a dime a dozen, but how you come away from them makes all the difference. In this tutorial post, we’re going to step into a new space to explore what lies beyond the technical aspects of the designing and developing life. Stress can wreak havoc on our health and our bodies react to it with physical and mental symptoms such as headaches, an upset stomache, elevated blood pressure and more. We’ll look at how we can make the best of ourselves in difficult situations, and how a little self-care in the workplace can get you living your best life every day.
Whether it’s a remote or concrete office, we’re present at the workplace, more than anywhere else on a normal week. At some point, we all eventually hit a wall or feel put down either from interpersonal conflicts or because of our own shortfalls. Here are a couple useful and easy things to think about before you consider calling it quits or deeming a situation too impossible to fix.
Parallax scrolling has been around for some time and capitalizes on a 3D-like experience in a 2D environment. This special visual technique simply scrolls the background image at a slower rate than the foreground image or text, creating a sensation of depth or an almost 3D feeling. The bottom line is that you can create some pretty dynamic and interesting visual experiences for a visitor scrolling through your site.
Some website design trends come and go, but as we grow deeper into this scrolling culture, you may want to take advantage of the need for scrolling. Especially as mobile website usage increases, one thing is clear - we like scrolling on our phones. Even the split moment Instagram accidentally released a tapping to advance feed, the immediate uproar was enough for them to ditch the idea, at least for now.
One of the awesome features about WordPress are all the extendable plugins. But sometimes plugins can have issues from updates or conflicts with other plugins. For example: a plugin update could crash your site due to an invalid/incompatible code, or the update process could be hung half way. With any plugin issue you may experience, the best fix is by reinstalling the plugin. In this foundational tutorial, we'll guide you on how to properly reinstall plugins using the WordPress plugin installer or with an FTP software.
You can spend a great deal on ads and paid marketing, but one of the most priceless and free marketing commodities is sharing on social media. User engagement with your website, blog post articles, and products can have the greatest impact and outreach. This organic influence can help drive traffic and new visitors to your site and hopefully, new customers to your brand.
Social sharing buttons are the best way to make it easier for users to do just that. Providing shortcuts for users to easily share your content will help boost that number, increasing the number of eyes on your company.
In this blog post, we’ve compiled a list of the 10 best and free social media sharing plugins. This will hopefully save you time from filtering through thousands of social share plugins in the WordPress community.
