    Writing blogs I mix it up because I never know the learning preference on the reader.

    Here are some example sentences I might use:

    Visual: learners respond to images and graphics.

    I see what you mean.
    I get the picture.
    What’s your view?
    Imagine this
    Can you see ?

    Auditory: learners prefer verbal presentations.

    That rings a bell.
    I hear what…[Read more]

    If anybody reads by daily linked in and twitter blogs, armed with this article you will see, hear and grasp my focus on NLP.

    Think of NLP as a subconscious method of building rapport in your copy.
    Every salesman knows that rapport is the secret to sales, even if you are diametrically opposed to a view or point of view, NLP has the ability to…[Read more]

    • Yes, I am interested in Neuro Linguistic Programming and I have enjoyed learning about it. How do you use it yourself, Will?

    • Thanks for sharing this, Will.

  • I spent a couple days at the Corinthia Hotel pre and post opp at the local hospital on Malta, quite a prestigious Hotel one would think, although I am lucky enough not to pay.

    Not for the first time this year have I have also stayed in similar establishments including the Radisson Blu and Kempinski San Lawrenz, also with shockingly disappointing…[Read more]

    • I like: “….providing intermittent and quite forgettable food and service…”
      I have found that corporations typically take a long time to make a decision.
      Partly, this is because of the number of people that are involved in decision making.
      Perhaps this explains why so many famous name companies from 10 years ago are no longer with us.

    I have strategically moved into a new business that I can manage without travel.
    I am optimistic about 2021 and intend to adopt a lot more targeted push technology.
    With traction I want to use commission based only sales people to forge alliances with SEO specialists.

    I also want to invest in auto subscription billing using Xero

    I plan not to…[Read more]

    Yes a PWA can have a unique URL or a direct URL to an existing website.
    by dropping the www.
    Yes you can connect direct to QR code and yes you can distribute a WPA via email or indeed any other method , social media SMS website, newsletter.
    Such is the change that Google and Apple are now fully collaborating

    I think for any business or organisation with a fixed location, or a product with packaging, this 30 year old technology is begging for implementation.

    And in turn another older technology leaps back in to life, the walky talkie.

    Because QR is paper based it perfectly suits the Smart phone camera in the field but it will also work on social…[Read more]

    Whilst writing a blog for linked in

    I wanted to show some inclusively priced technology inside my App building business.

    One technology that lends itself to many scenarios is QR (short for Quick Response

    • Thanks for sharing this, Will. I have taken a look at https://www.qrcode-monkey.com …it looks like it is free to use, no catches? May I ask how you would use QR Codes from a marketing perspective?

    Why do blogs sometimes register as sticky in the wordpress back office?

    • Hi Will, There is an option, when you are working on a new WordPress blog or editing an old one, to make it ‘sticky’. This word almost always means something like: ‘keep it at the top of the screen’. In this case it means, keep it at the top of the stack of blogs, so that visitors to your blog page will see it first. You have to manually select…[Read more]

    Free for year one then £2.99 pcm

    It has lots of features including a notification that the email you have sent has been opened.

    Hello Nigel
    I have been diligently changing my website in preparation for a sales team to sell for me but also build relationships with SEO experts for a new reciprocal revenue stream for them. I blog regularly and have noticed a 400% increase in visitor numbers up to 1400 visits in 4 weeks which is encouraging.
    Today I published a new guide page…[Read more]

    • Please share some of the keyword phrases that you want to be found for, Will.
      It would be helpful to decrease your website loading time.
      I suggest that you simplify your webcopy. What you do and deliver must be crystal clear in the first paragraph.

    • I am focusing properly on keywords now and I will let you know.
      I have changed copy on home page and PWA APP examples so far, much better i think

    • Thanks for this, Will. I imagine that you will build a Maltix PWA App and let us know where can can view / download this?

    How do you add sitemaps to a word press site ?
    How important is it for google?

  • William Nicholls posted a new activity comment 1 month ago

    So blogging regularly effectively adds a fresh page to your website and increases the chances of being found by google ?

    If blogging Is important should it be daily, weekly or monthly ?

  • William Nicholls posted an update in the group Group logo of Social Media StrategySocial Media Strategy 1 month ago

    Why is blogging so important Nigel?

  • William Nicholls posted a new activity comment 1 month ago

    Completely free with over 1 million choices

    Yeah I struggle with the word App full stop
    It’s not a proper word is it ?

  • William Nicholls posted an update 1 month ago

    Free logo maker https://logomakr.com/ a very free good tool.
    I wanted to express freedom so I used a Dove and the company name, not only on the website but especially blogs
    Have a look copy and paste logomakr.com/2yzAKe

    • Wow, logomakr.com is great, Will.
      Thank you for sharing this with us.
      So it is completely free to use?
      PS Small point on the logo you are creating: I don’t think that APP should be followed by an apostrophe. i.e. I think it should be: APPs or Apps.

    • Completely free with over 1 million choices

      Yeah I struggle with the word App full stop
      It’s not a proper word is it ?

    • It is short for applications, so App or Apps would be fine.

  • William Nicholls posted an update 1 month ago

    I am seriously looking into using commission only international sales teams
    Has anybody got any experience ?

    Nigel has mentioned a British product called Powtoon as a tool for distributing videos, presentations, explainer videos, remote learning etc.
    As an example I have used 2 videos in my blog today mirrored on the homepage of my website https://maltix.co.uk/chat-today-about-your-exciting-new-social-media-app

  • Hello everybody. After spending quite a few months forging an alliance with a progressive App construction company I can honestly say that Nigel’s advice on the WordPress blog is the soundest advice for distribution.
    We made a decision to focus on one product that business could invest in inexpensively to excel using social media more e…[Read more]
