How To Look Good On a Webcam

How To Look Good On a Webcam | Web Design Review | Scoop.it
Here’s a little something many of us dread – webcam meetings. It’s one thing to chat with friends and family using Skype or Google Hangouts, but it’s another thing completely to try to look good and maintain a professional image for a webcam meeting.

Dana Henderson's insight:

It helps to have a beautiful face, if you are bucktooth I would recommend a conference call and loose the webcam.

In 3 steps: 1. Identify your keyword 2. Create a pinboard 3. Plug in your hashtags.

 

 

Dana Henderson's insight:

 

 

Little tips like this get you better ranking in search engines. For a keyword use a keyword that is searchable in your page and is found at least 3 times on your page. All your keywords should be content in your page and in text not images so they are searchable. Another tip is to use keywords that are not to competitive such as “Dallas PC Technician” may bring up 91,700 results in a search while “Computer Technician” brings up 21,700,000 results in a search engine.  “Dallas PC Technician” is a much better keyword. 

To do this you will need to do keyword research before writing the content of your webpage.

The Web Designer’s Cheat Sheet | Tips

The Web Designer’s Cheat Sheet | Tips | Web Design Review | Scoop.it
When working on a new site, most web designers are no stranger to all-nighters, copious amounts of coffee and even repetitive strain injury (ouch!). No surprise
Dana Henderson's insight:

 

 

We all want to write efficient code, as I learn CSS I also learn to code using less files and make content that is more stable across platforms. In “The Web Designer’s Cheat Sheet | Tips”, Nicola Allen puts the process of efficiency in coding in a summery with links to pages to clarify the use of these techniques. Efficiency in coding is not only using less lines of code it is easier and works in any browser or OS. The code is also readable; the programmer can easily come back and make adjustments to the page.

Begin coding with a good editor that will allow you to quickly jump between tags and will automatically highlight coding mistakes. An editor that will color code parts of your coding that will make coding easier such as Style Studio, or a beginner may want to use a good one like Style Master , The one recommended by Nicola Allen is Sublime Text. Once you are coding there are several ways given to make your code more efficient and more tools mentioned that also make coding easier and more efficient.

Logo design: 5 questions to ask about the brand | Web Design Review | Scoop.it

Don't dive straight into Photoshop - get to know the company or product properly before you start designing its logo, says Martin Nilsson of Logosack.

Dana Henderson's insight:

Knowing the questions to ask is the method I always think is smartest, the questions are:

What does the brand stand for?

Why was the name chosen?

What's the business story?

What's specific about this business?

What's the brand’s personality?

I am thinking of a new Logo for one of my blogs, we shall see what develops for blog branding. I'm excited to consider replacing my picture.
