Lets Create Something GREAT!



From time to time, I get an itch to write about something pertaining to New Orleans and/or web design... and sometimes I get a wild hair and really go off subject!  Just know that if I write about it or include it here, it is important to me.  Enjoy!

Using the power of content and social media marketing can help increase your audience and customers in a dramatic way, However, getting started without any experience or insight could be a disaster.

It's extremely important that you fully understand social media marketing basics. From maximizing quality to increasing your online entry points, these 10 laws will help form the foundation that will serve your customers, your brand and -- more importantly -- your bottom line.

Just about everyone has a website these days, but what is the magic pill that makes one better than an other?  Why do some get huge amounts of traffic, while others seem to get very little? There are many factors that play a role in this—with content playing the leading part. May times people create a web site, add text copy and pictures...and wait for the magic to happen. As with anything else, without proper care and maintenence, a potentially great site can  turn into a waste very quickly. If your site is one of the latter, you can pump some life into it with a few simple changes, such as adding a blog with lots of informative content that speaks to your particular demographic.   Here are a few more tips to get your site ranked as it should:

Ok, you've heard it all before: "The best way to make money is to save money".  I have to wholeheartedly disagree with that statement.  Not one day passes when a potential client doesn't asks me how I can SAVE him or his business money...What kind of deals can I give him/her?   DEALS?  DO YOU WANT A GREAT WEB SITE OR A GREAT DEAL?   (pick one)

With over 18 years of web design experience, I have learned to be objective... so I will say that based on research; WIX designs seem to be of the OK variety. If you like drag and drop, then there is a possibility that someone could create a passable website from a design standpoint. This, however is where the good ends and Wix goes spinning down the drain. I could go on until my fingers go numb from typing, but here are 5 MAJOR issues.

Ok...I've been asked (for the umpteenth time) why I choose to build MOST of my client's websites using Joomla instead of any other content management system (namely Wordpress). This blog entry has been brewing in my head for some time now. I have now decided that it is time to answer the age old question...JOOMLA OR WORDPRESS?

Let's face it - New Orleans has a flair and tempo all its own.  New Orleans has its own theme and atmosphere that makes it one of the most "different" places in the world.  This provides a unique challenge for business marketing and strategy.  The things that work to increase business in other cities often times does not work well in New Orleans.  The same can be said for Web Site Marketing.  Here are a few reasons why a LOCAL firm like Rhino Web is the best choice for local web development:

With over 16 years in the web site design field, I am still asked by my clients to put things or use things in and on their web sites that just are plain WRONG.  You wouldn't go to a doctor and tell the doctor how to treat your sickness,  would you?  Here are the top 11 web design NO NO's that I still have to talk my customers out of...

Everybody wants to be the one to tell you what’s the next big thing.  You’ve probably read many articles telling you what the hottest new web trends are.  Actually, it's not that hard to figure out because it's happening now.

It’s not difficult to predict web trends because most of them are already here.  Not many are groundbreaking things that you couldn’t figure out for yourself.  When you’re trying to really think about what tomorrow holds, you’re looking at a lot of different things.
