Inspiring Work by Joyce Kaye

06/30/15

Joyce,

I just woke up thinking what a treasure you and your skills/services are for this (or any) community.  Thank you so much for the Intro to WordPress Part II session and the well-done, helpful pass outs.  I will call you for a private if and when I can’t sort out the details as I proceed.  In fact, I am sure I will need your help in understanding how to format better and design pages – with the frames and graphics, etc.

Best wishes!!!  Keep up the inspiring work.

Amazing Job Helping Me Create My New Website

I took several 1/2 day WordPress retreats with Joyce Kaye and would highly recommend working with her! She did an amazing job helping me create my new website, Climate Health and Wellness!

Amazing Job Helping Me Create My New WebsiteI loved the collaboration that took place between us because we each got creative ideas working together to really make my website exactly what I had envisioned. And, she doesn’t deal with just the technical stuff of building a site! Joyce coached me through such considerations as: who was my audience, what was the purpose of the site, how did it relate to my other work, etc. We discussed the layout of the site (“architecture”), and chose an easily customizable responsive WordPress theme. She created the header image and also made editing suggestions for the content I’d written, including explaining her philosophy of what the Home page should contain.

Joyce is a great and patient teacher, especially for me – I am not the most computer literate person around. And if you are not computer savvy, she will help you get up to speed, on the basics, or for as much as you may need, so don’t be afraid!

Workshops in May with Joyce Kaye

Since it’s fairly easy to convert a mobile “unfriendly” theme in WordPress to one that is mobile-friendly, due to Mobilegeddon on April 21st, you may now be interested in using self-hosted WordPress as the platform for your website if you hadn’t been interested before.

Our WordPress workshops are offered regularly, limited to just 4 participants, hands-on, and include hands-outs and access to practice in a real live WordPress site. Some spots are already reserved, so don’t linger in registering.

May 8, 2015 “The Power of Email Marketing”

Join me at OLLI in Sedona for a 2-hour workshop on “The Power of Email Marketing” on Friday, May 8th, 10:00 AM to Noon. Space is still available. To register, contact OLLI directly.

Osher Lifelong Leaning Institute

Sedona, AZ 86336
Phone: (928) 649-4275

This workshop serves as an introduction about online newsletters: why you need an e-newsletter; what exactly is email marketing and how does it fit in with your marketing plan; using metrics to increase your success; and, tips on growing your mailing list. Then, I’ll walk through creating a professional email.

Google’s Biggest Ranking Change Ever

Whether you have a website (owner) or you search and visit websites (user), Google’s biggest ranking change ever, coming next month, will impact YOU! Please do read on… (and, if you’re an owner, see the article Website Owners: Preparing for Google’s Ranking Change).

When you run a website it seems like there’s always something to worry about. The latest worry is being called Mobilegeddon – seriously (you can search on it!) – and it represents a very real threat to the Google rankings of millions of websites. AS OF APRIL 21, GOOGLE WILL START RANKING MOBILE-FRIENDLY WEBSITES HIGHER IN SEARCH RESULTS.

Google’s Biggest Ranking Change EverSearch engine rankings determine how easy it is for people to find you and your website. Ultimately, with this change, the “mobile friendliness” of a site will represent a significant influence on the ranking algorithm that Google uses to show results to searchers. This could be to the extent that websites not deemed mobile friendly may not even be eligible to rank in mobile search results.

As a website owner, you want your website to be a place for your readers to connect with you, for your site to rank well so that people can hire you or buy your products and services. Your website is an extension of what you do, and if it’s not getting found in the search engines, it can have a profound impact on disseminating important information and, of course, your profits.

As a user, this change means that your searches will not yield as extensive results as before; you’ll not get as full a picture or as many choices to explore. Also, it could be very confusing when searching for something you’ve ‘googled’ before, but which now no longer shows up in search results.

The good thing about all of this is that Google has given us a warning, and time for all of us to prepare.

As I commented last month, these are surely interesting times and we live in a most interesting world! It’s going to be ’interesting’ to see how this all pans out…
