7 Web Design Optimization Tips for Mobile

Though it's tempting to simply create a mobile version of your website and pat yourself on the back for a job well done and move on to another project, search habits are changing. Now, responsive websites are the best choice for an optimal customer experience. Marketers can't sit on their laurels when it comes to Web design.


It's vital that Web design evolve and change to meet consumer needs, especially because a study by Google and Nielsen reveals that more than half of mobile purchases occur within an hour of initial search, making mobile optimization more important than ever. Here are 7 quick ways you can make sure your site is truly optimized for all users....

The newsonomics of the Washington Post and New York Times network wars

The newsonomics of the Washington Post and New York Times network wars | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

Call it the newspaper network wars.


The Washington Post’s Newspaper Partner Program has grown from a March-planted seedling into a full-grown fall oak. The initiative now includes more than 120 daily newspapers in the U.S., and could connect with more than 200,000 digital newspaper subscribers or more by the middle of next year. Meanwhile, The New York Times is newly working with newspaper partners, launching its own products. USA Today, too, is now pitching a news partner program across the country.


What’s going on here? Why in 2014 are we seeing both new digital and print partner programs being offered up by three of America’s national newspaper brands? We can chalk it up to two things. Most prominently, the Jeff Bezos era at the Washington Post is fully taking hold. Secondly, publishers —these national ones and the early-adopting regional ones — are getting smarter at working around the edges, figuring out how to add on the smaller things that readers will pay for in this renewed age of reader revenue....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Print wars? Who'd have thought? A new head-to-head competition between the Post and the Times is brewing as both papers look at expanding their audiences and revenue through digital networks and niche print products.

Hands On With The Moto 360, The First Round Smart Watch | TechCrunch

Hands On With The Moto 360, The First Round Smart Watch  | TechCrunch | Public Relations & Social Media Insight | Scoop.it

As we approach Peak Smart Watch at the Apple event next week, manufacturers are racing to offer product to those who might not want to bow down to Cupertino in the coming months. The latest contender is the Moto 360, a steel and leather beauty that launched today alongside the new Motorola .


Although I’ve been duly impressed by the Samsung Gear series, you will immediately see that the design language of the 360 is far more chic. Made of a round piece of coated steel and featuring a nice leather band and Gorilla Glass crystal, the watch looks more like a Misfit Shine than a nerd accouterment.


How does it work? Well, if you’re not familiar with the vagaries of Android Wear, not very well at first. The interface consists of notifications that appear over the various watch faces available as well as a voice activated screen that allows you to ask for various pieces of information....

Jeff Domansky's insight:

Smart design but sketchy performance so far.
