The much anticipated Facebook mobile application has finally been released. After months of speculation (and leaking information) the app became available on mobile platforms including Android and iOS. Previous to the official Facebook application, the iPad and iPhone featured “Friendly for Facebook”, developed by Oecoway, Inc., and MyPad, and developed by Loytr, Inc.
The official release does lack flash, a key component to running Facebook games. Since Apple products including the iPad and iPhone lack flash capabilities, when a game or Facebook app is launched, the user is redirected to the mobile version of that app. If not installed, users are prompted to go to the Apple App Store. For example, if a user wants to play “Words With Friends”, they must then open that app on their device.
Photos are optimized to take full use of the retina display featured on Apple devices. One significant issue stands out: Facebook credits cannot be used in the app, if a user wants to purchase credits; they have to buy credits through the Apple App Store. It is not disclosed whether or not Facebook retains a percentage of these profits. This marks an on-going debate in which Facebook and Apple have been going back and forth over the use of currency for the social media company since they began discussions of the development of this app for Apple products. It seems Apple won that argument.
WebiMax is the leader in SEO services. A veteran in the industry, they have established themselves as the “go-to” firm with their uncompromising commitment to quality and results. WebiMax has also distinguished themselves as the leading social media marketing firm.
In 2008, arguably the most challenging economic time for the United States since the great depression, Wisnefski started the company with limited funds, and just 4 employees. In 3 short years, that same company now employs 150 personnel, and is projected to gross $15 million in revenue this year, mainly stemming from their online marketing services. The journey of WebiMax has not only been a success story for Wisnefski, an Entrepreneur on his 3rd successful startup, but a success story for the company in its ability to maneuver amongst challenging times.
“Securing financing for small business loans in 2008 was the most challenging part of the launch of the company. However, my lending reputation (stemming from my 2 previous ventures) gave me an edge when I was in discussions with the banks. My advice to other aspiring Entrepreneurs is to always repay your bank lender loans as fast as you can”, states Wisnefski.
In 2009 and 2010, the company was still in its introduction stage, and clients were signing on as an accelerating rate. “We had clients calling us from all over the world, including Europe and Asia looking for quality SEO services. From there we just took off”.
As 2011 came, the company entered its most pivotal time, when Wisnefski decided a global
expansion was needed. “I recognized the need to open operations centers internationally due to the amount of global clients that use our services. In April, we launched WebiMax Australia, Canada, Spain, and the United Kingdom. Those offices are fully staffed, and up and running”, concludes Wisnefski.
As the company continues to progress through this crucial year, Wisnefski also reinforces his support for economic recovery and employment. Under his direction, WebiMax does not outsource any of their services to overseas vendors (as most SEO firms do), and instead hires only U.S. citizens. Their ability to recruit and hire the most talented personnel has been integral to their success.
This social media marketing only benefits the client’s campaigns. Given that there are over 500 million users on Facebook alone, you can only imagine how many people may come across a certain client’s site at any given time. The benefits of using such media outlets are extraordinary. Not only are you getting your companies information out there to the public, but you’re most likely relaying it to a certain demographic that wouldn’t have known about your business without such a network. The pros outweigh the cons by afar.
These social networks have been known to enrapture and preoccupy those who take an interest in it. However, that’s not always a bad thing. It’s amazing what you can learn and take a liking toward just because you saw something on someone’s page that you didn’t know existed before. Stumbling upon different business, stores or firms can strike an interest in anyone that it wants to. This powerful social media has spread like wild fire and has only emphasized the fact that we, as people, enjoy seeing how others live and work.
Content writing is a major part in the functioning of Webimax as an SEO firm. Content writers are the ones who write the blogs, articles and press releases for the clients. There are times that you may need to write about something that doesn’t necessarily spark your interest. This is where you have to have a good imagination. With content writing, you have to look outside the box so you don’t constantly generalize your topics. Picking an aspect of the company and going into more detail with it will allow you to expand your writing the way you need to.
For example – if you’re writing about dresses for girls and women you could pick out something like, what new colors are in for the season, what types of dresses to wear for different occasions or even accessories that would go well with a particular style of dress. Content writing is about digging deeper and deeper to find the most accurate way to describe a certain client and their product(s).
Even if you are a writing connoisseur, there will always be those times that you get a cramp in your writers flow. When that happens, just keep stressing to yourself what it is you’re discussing and keep digging for your information. Content writing is no small feat as it holds together many companies.
Continuously read blogs, daily papers, and magazines
Most likely, you gravitate towards information about your industry. Just about any business is addressed on and offline in some journalistic fashion. Get to know specific writers and the kinds of information and stories they relate to the public. You may be able to offer yourself or your company as an expert cited source in an article.
In addition, most magazines have editorial calendars, which alert you of upcoming story topics. Your business can be proactive and offer insight for an eventual piece. Bloggers may also have a set list of topics to cover in the future; it may be wise to ask them.
Junior and senior-level executives may benefit the company by joining organizations pertaining to specific industries or joining a business organization such as their local Chamber of Commerce. Events are usually planned inviting opportunities to meet other professionals, spread the word about your company, intrigue potential investors and partners, etc.
Orchestrate fundraisers and events
Every business seeks exposure. Exposure helps brand the company and keep its name in the long-term memory of the mass public. Hosting fundraisers and other events facilitates a company’s acclaim. It shows the company is interested in giving back to the public and provides a platform for the public to interact with the company brand. Hosting events are especially beneficial for local businesses that would like to begin and strengthen relationships with local customers.
Elect Company and Executives
The business world hosts a large number of business awards. Use a search engine to search for business award sites, such as the Stevies, and nominate your company and its executives. In addition, you can search for state and local award sites. It creates another goal for your company to achieve and provides proof of your company’s recognition and excellence in your industry if you win.
Write Press Releases
Press releases can serve multiple purposes. It is advantageous to attempt to have one release achieve many. A press release:
- can be sent to local and nation-wide reporters and editors. Remember to write a newsworthy press release; otherwise, your release won’t get featured anywhere.
-can feature multimedia such as sound and video clips. Clips augment the information contained in the content of the text.
-can be used for SEO purposes using your company’s keywords and phrases
- educate the public about upcoming, company events
