As many things have changed in 2020, I felt my Featured Images for my Portfolio Widget in WordPress needed to be adjusted to the correct dimensions. I simply took a screenshot of the web page and created a Photoshop template to the correct dimensions for my WordPress Portfolio Widget. Worked on each image to showcase the best featured of each portfolio project.
The end result of these featured images drastically changed the feel of my home page. They fit the dimensions and give my user a more confident visual experience. Below are the “Before & After” images.
As the madness on black friday slowed down, I went out yesterday to purchase the fairly new Deadpool video game. This witty comic book character makes the video game a fun and hilarious experience. Today I came across the website for the game and had almost as much fun as playing the game! The website is a single page website much like the site I am creating, also it doesn’t have and Parallax while scrolling it is still a fun and exciting website.
As I am coming closer to finishing up the art work for my portfolio site (wwwskubymediagroup.com) I like to browse the internet for ideas on how mine could be designed or laid out, and it is driving me crazy! Almost every time I search I find new and innovative portfolio sites that make me want to change my design! I almost always go back to mine design and change something!
Well here is my newest inspiration. It is the portfolio site designed by Robby Leonardi a multidisciplinary designer based in New York. He does illustration, graphic design, animation and front-end development.
His portfolio is a SNES Mario influenced website, the whole page is like walking through the game and I am in love with his site!
So what I have learned is that there are 3 main aspects to online marketing:
• Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
• Content Marketing
• Social Media Marketing
Most people think SEO is just keywords, but what they don’t know is that google has updated how it searches for these keywords. In the passed all you had to do was put a keyword on your page a couple times and Google would see it as a relevant website even if it wasn’t. But now SEO consists of relevant keywords, valuable content that is shared, a website that loads quickly, both images and content, and backlinks from respected websites. So…. in other words Google got smarter!
