Guest Post: Chatwing – The Chatting Tool Site Users Need

This is a Guest Post, created by Aaron with ChatWing. (Not Sponsored) A more lively way of interacting with people over the Internet – that is what makes chatting so fun to do. People flock over social media sites like Facebook and chat with their friends and colleagues whenever they have something important to say or just want to say hello. This is also the reason why it is important that other sites should have a means of communicating with their viewers through live chat – because it makes them know what their clients wants much better. For site owners that want to augment their site with a chatting tool, ChatWing can give them a great solution – ChatWing chat software. The chatting tool ChatWing has is very reliable and is always up-to-date. The developers are constantly improving it so it can deliver a better performance to its users. However, ChatWing still retains its very easy chatroom set-up and use. The chat software can be embedded in a site after a simple copy and paste procedure. And managing it is even simpler. ChatWing comes with a bunch of features – all of which will compliment the tool greatly. It comes with a very lenient logging system for its chatters. They can choose between six options to join the chat app – four of these by way of their social media accounts Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and Google (the others being ChatWing and Guest). The user however, can limit the usage of these options to whichever he sees fit. The chatroom is highly modifiable, with almost all its parts open for customization. There also so many options to choose from so the user can have the freedom to personalize the chatroom to meet his requirements. He can either change the fonts being used – its style, size and even color. The appearance of the chatroon is even changeable and ChatWing also allows music to be embedded in it for added entertainment. The chatroom is also fitted with excellent security features the user needs in order to manage it. He can ban people from using the chatroom with ease and delete their previous messages. He can block profanity by putting up word filters. The user can also assign moderators that can also assist him in managing the site to make the job much easier. ChatWing still has a lot to offer and it just gets better over time. Site owners will never regret having one on their site as it will only deliver only the best chatting experience for them and their chatters. The Wrapper Have you used ChatWing? Have you used a different solution? I am interested to see what the regular users of this and other services like Click to Chat or nGage, feel are the best services out...

My Ideas on Marketing Online (part 3)

For this final part, I just wanted to include some simple guidelines I use for my social media marketing. I don’t do a lot of this because most of my job is to build marketable websites, copy-writing, or graphic design; but it doesn’t hurt to learn more about the entire marketing environment. I have spoken with TV marketing professionals about television and TiVo’s impact, radio specialist on what Satellite Radio has done to broadcast advertising; and I just wonder… What will be the next user focused technology that will cause an evolution in the way internet marketing will be driven or how advertisers will attempt to spend their marketing dollars? Who knows but I’m sure we won’t have to wait too much longer. I mean, Atlanta is a test ground for city wide free Wi-fi! I even heard a rumor that at some point in the near future a large organization was going to release VOIP or cellular access for telephone communications to the public. In other words, free cellphone use to phones enabled to use the protocols. What would that do to the world? Anyway, here are my ideas on some of the social media outlets for marketing. As I mentioned in part two we looked at how to be audience focused as well as the why, what and where; here we look at some of the mediums to accomplish this. These are rules I follow, but they’re not the Ten Crack Commandments but it works for me (feedback or ideas welcome). Nevertheless, let me give you some key “Golden Rules” of some big marketing avenues. *As with anything internet, there are not true ‘rules’ for the internet road, only guidelines and socially accepted parameters; avoid deprecated practices, look it up novice… Twitter:Advantages – Twitter has all but replaced PR agency as a large percentage of our followers are press and analysts. Disadvantages – Because you have limited space to make the point duplicate posting, follower sculpting, anduseful posts are the name of the marketers game here. Rules of Engagement:1. Tweetlater.com or the like – Allows for inputting several tweets while designating when to actually post them.2. Mobile Applications – For fast access to info or to post fresh pics, links, or additional ‘no marketing’ relatedtweets (effective when used in conjunction with an auto delivery system).3. Cross Marketing – Find a service like Ping.fm to auto update all social outlets with each tweet or post, duh. Google Reviews:Advantages – Adds reviews to indexed links, maps, and across much of Google’s network; allow for better positioning. Disadvantages – Stringent security means lots of work to get viable reviews in and accepted. (Black Hated!!) Rules of Engagement:1. Setting up Avatars for real client reviews seems acceptable and reasonable.2. Be honest with wording and language… most humans going to the length of reading a review about something are a warm lead. Don’t mess it up with illogical gobbity gook (always wanted to say that).3. Best for retailers with large stock, several products, distributors and/or companies with multiplemarketing competitors. Blogger or Related Blog system:“Quite a few bloggers talked about nuisance blog posts clogging the web and the bad noise drowning out thegood. Frequency of blog posts should be dictated by the quality of what you have to say. If you’ve createda blog for the right reason(s), then you are passionate about your topic and should have plenty of usefulinformation to share. “Many bloggers also agree that blogging frequency is dictated by the type of blog you have. News blogs, ofcourse, would be at the most frequent end of the scale. Thoughtful and...
