Some of these were new to me and probably would be nice. On the one hand, people are fascinated with 'bells and whistles' but the eternal problem remains that most people really don't have any design skills nor the time (or even interest) to learn.

Vincent Dickie's curator insight, November 23, 7:17 PM

Most businesses know that blogging helps their website more visible in Google, but, let's face it, blogging can be time consuming. Clients frequently ask me how they can make blogging more manageable. The post has some great tools that make it easier to juggle a business and manage online media.

Mobile Devices Will Be Biggest Business Security Threat in 2014 | mobile marketing | Scoop.it
With more and more employees getting work done on the go, mobile devices are quickly becoming a huge security risk for companies, new research shows.
Lori Wilk's insight:

This issue of security might make some people want to change passwords more often. This year more people told me that they use a prepaid debit card with a very low balance for their online purhases to minimize the risk. On a positive note, those  who make money from internet security products and services might stay employed and we could see a spike in hiring in the internet security industry in 2014.Happy New Year.

Master of His Virtual Domain

Master of His Virtual Domain | mobile marketing | Scoop.it
George Yao, an ordinary guy, spent $250 a week conquering the online game Clash of Clans, at one point bringing five iPads into the shower with him so that none of his accounts would go inactive.
Lori Wilk's insight:

There are companies making money on people's addictions to their games.If you're the company collecting you are probably happy you've come up with such addictive content and then there's the other side of the equation-the addict and how his or her life is going. Someone should hire this man as a virtual assistant to take care of their online activities. He could get addicted to making money- instead of going broke. Imagine a virtual assistant who would take his mobile devices into the shower with him so he'd stay connected.

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics

5 Killer & Easy To Forget Web Design Basics | mobile marketing | Scoop.it

Web Design Basics
Love these five web design basics:

* Learn TYPE Design.
* Pick Great Fonts That Fit Your TONE.
* Pick 3 Color Palette & STICK TO IT.
* Photos = RIGHT SIZE.
* When In Doubt, Give It SPACE.

This last tip is our favorite. Nothing we hate more than claustrophobic web design. Problem is claustrophobia is easy to create. We all WANT to do so much.

When I was an Ecommerce Director we studied our links carefully. We found that 5% of our links received 90% of the clicks. That equation turned out to be a fractal. No matter how small we cut it, no matter how we shifted the design, a small % of the links dominated.

This means MOST of what WE, as designers, think is important isn't. We learned to be Google - Vicious about what we added. Adding meant something had to COME OFF the design. This strange User Interface math means you have more ROOM than you realize.

Find what matters and LINK IT. Design what matters and eliminate the flotsam and jetsam so you have SPACE around what matters since it is that SPACE that signals IMPORTANCE to your visitors.  .

If you were only able to follow one rule, follow rule #5


5. When in doubt, give it space


The most important design tip is also the simplest: “Make sure your content has breathing room; give it proper margins will help with legibility and focus.
