    Who said 50% of all advertising is wasted, the trouble is which 50% ?

    This way we can get great rates on 500 cards knowing they can be changed in the future and you get to see how many people actually opened and read your business card.
    With this kind of logic, the same QR can be used on all stationery so the cost of print is mitigated.
    This is…[Read more]

    Hello Nigel. I made a decision to integrate Transpond newsletter system into my Capsule CRM. I have to say, it is very impressive. I am looking increasingly to segment using Linkedin leads I have generated. As a test for a new generation business card idea that uses serviced QR that can be changed for the client after print, I sent this…[Read more]

    • Thanks for sharing this generous offer, William. I love the way in which you are integrating print with digital marketing, so that your clients can track their customer’s engagement levels.

    Have you any tips on setting up subscription on Stripe or Paypal ?

  • William Nicholls posted a new activity comment 4 weeks ago

    Yes thank you Nigel
    This page is connected to poster campaigns at the moment so pricing is a consequence of that

  • William Nicholls posted an update 4 weeks ago

    Do you have any feed back on my new web page ?

    Business APP

    • Hi William, Thanks for sharing the web page. I think that the headline at the top of the page should be:
      A website on the PC and an APP on the phone. No APP store required!
      You need to focus on this central message.
      It is a lot for people to take on board as this technology is not widely understood.

    I used my gmail address to set up capsule CRM originally.
    But I wanted to use my @maltix emails for a more professional approach.

    The Titan platform I opted for, does not integrate with capsule.

    So for two years now, the compromise is using capsule dropbox in conjunction with wufoo smart form pages ( that do integrate)
    An almost satisfactory solution

    Nigel, can you explain how to use anchor links within WordPress and what the advantages are please.

    • Hi William, The key point is that Google likes hyperlinks, regardless of whether they are external, in-bound links or links within your site (that point from one of your website pages or blogs to another page or blog). Here is a detailed explanation, within our Encyclopedia:

      SEO – Anchor text

    Thank you Nigel, yes a much more user friendly URL.I think we all agree our websites are disappointing, I tried some bog names as well, some faired very badly indeed. So to take the experiment one step further try posting a Dynamic QR URL’s. https://qrco.de/bczsWB

    There is a lot of data to suggest that the phone user has become a lot less tolerant of website loading speeds with increased website abandonment because of navigation choices that suit the PC but not a phone. Google are getting quite vocal about their Progressive App coding and the difference that makes.
    One of their tools is very useful with a…[Read more]

    When people ask about wufoo, I ask them for a problem or situation to resolve. It could be simple, it could be complex.
    As an experiment, perhaps we could create some problems and look at smart form page resolution ideas?

    Throw something at me, let’s see what a solution might look like 🤪

    I do wonder how you can have a successful article on LinkedIn with zero comments.
    It happens to me a lot.

    Maybe the words that captures their attention simultaneously frightens them off !

    Anybody who is in business after 3 years is exceptional. 30 years begins to look heroic, it’s up there with Ronnie o Sullivan

    If I was to give editorial control for a limited number of website pages to approved licences using the maltix url on my WordPress site. How could I do that, but remain in overall control ?

    • I suggest that you take a look at the link below, William. As you will see, it talks about Roles within WordPress. These are designed to give the site owner the ability to control what users can and cannot do within the site. A site owner can manage the user access to such tasks as writing and editing posts, creating Pages, creating categories,…[Read more]

    I put a Capsule form page on the Partners page.

    It’s proven to be quite popular.
    But it’s basic.

    However, wufoo is a different animal altogether and also integrates into Capsule.
    It’s such a tool, when connected to a QR code, for example, and can resolve quite complex everyday problems with subtlety.

    I’m beginning to interrogate the captivating one liners I have used over the last year in my LinkedIn articles.
    Any mention of my productS guarantees low readership.
    Showcasing products doesn’t fair much better.

    But strident messaging can almost go viral

    Some examples:
    The future website is dead, long live the website.

    “It is a website Jim,…[Read more]

    I worked in the Franchise industry from 1996 to 2002.
    One of the pitches at Franchise shows was.
    “90% of business start ups go out of business within 3 years and 90% of those surviving businesses go out of business within the next 3 years”
    Franchisee stats are quite dramatically better then that.
    But i still never trust Franchisors, their pre…[Read more]

    I would like to share a Blog which has got 741 impressions and counting on Linkedin.

    The Captivating one liner is:

    “This is the biggest change on the internet for small business since the dream of the internet began in the 1960’s”

    But in combination with the Blog title it sprang to life.…[Read more]

    Couple of things.
    Hotels and Estate Agents are probably owned by older people, that’s what we have found on LinkedIn.

    Those same people put their trust and their budgets into a teach team that holds sway.

    And the Hotel business model have effectively moved their marketing budget into somebody else’s business model, booking.com etc

    The idea of…[Read more]

    I agree wholeheartedly Nigel and most people really don’t know or care, so that copy is going to be critical. But the basics of understanding are technically based. Here is my webpage on that, but it’s probably boring to the average small business person, they want to do it for free: https://maltix.co.uk/v-business-card/
