This Too Shall Pass

It has been a tough couple of years for everyone but we have to keep the faith "This too shall pass".

"This too shall pass" is a proverb indicating that all material conditions, positive or negative, are temporary.

Been There Done That

Back in the 80s we went through this so some of us have "Been there done that" as far as struggling to make ends meet and earn a managable living. Our parents (or grandparents as the case maybe) grew up and got through even worse. What kept them going? Faith that the hard times will come to an end and we just have to keep plugging along as best we can until it does.

Moving Forward

We are moving forwad and keeping the faith that there is an end in sight. Any of you that have visited our website in the past will see a lot of work has been done lately.

Web Marketing News

Social Networking

The social networking scene is a buzz about Pinterest and Facebook timeline this month.


Pinterest has been a well kept secret amongst the Ladies.

It is a social networking site that has been up and running since 2010 but suddenly caught the eye of online marketers.

Members "pin" images from websites they like. The images can be products they want for a special occassion (like a wedding), stuff for their home, cute stuff and helpful infographics they find. Just like the other social networks, you follow people's "boards" and people follow yours.

The reason marketers like it is that it can be great exposure for your business or blog.

Pinterest just changed the layout of individual's pages tonight as this newsletter was written. Check out our Pinterest page to see the new look.

Back in mid February when How You Could Get Sued For Using Pinterest was published on Read Write Web there was a sudden concern about copyright infringement on Pinterest. Pinterest in their terms of use clearly puts on onus on the users to make sure credit is given to the rightful owner of the image and of course that you were not infringing on the owner's copyright ownership by pinning their image. Lesson: make sure you research that the right person is given credit for the image and it is allowed to be shared before you pin it or repin something someone else pinned.

Now from a website/blog owner's point of view there are a couple of things you can do if you want to participate or not.

  • You can add a PinIt button to your pages to make it easier for people to share your pages/products. If you do this it is possible to prepopulate the image name and description so the Pinner doesn't have to fill out the description. This does not stop them from changing the description though. Just an attempt to get your preferred description posted.

    Note: Members can use the PinIt bookmarklet to pin things from your site even if you do not have a PinIt button on the page. Which leads us to the next point.

  • If you do not want your pages pinned on Pinterest there is special coding you can put in the head of your pages to stop the PinIt bookmarklet continuing.

    Note: This only stops people using the PinIt Bookmarklet. They could copy your image to their computer then upload while logged into Pinterest to their board.

If you are interested in participating in Pinterest or not, contact us and we will set you up which ever way you decide is best for your business.

Facebook Business Pages

Those of you who already have a personal page on Facebook probably already heard about them changing the look of your Wall (a.k.a. Timeline). Well, they are changing the Timelines for business pages also. You have until March 30, 2011 to change your business page over to the new look or they will do it automatically for you on that date.

The new look will require a top image they are calling a cover image. We did ours last weekend. There are specific rules as to what you can and cannot put on your business cover image.

The other thing that is changing is that your Welcome page can not be forced as the first page people see when they visit your business page. If you have a Welcome page it now is accessed via a button below your cover image.

If you need help with setting up your cover image, contact us.


If you made it to this point, thanks for reading!!! This first newsletter wasn't supposed to be so long but we had lots of company news to share this time around.

Hope you sign up for our future newsletters.

Till next month, Keep your chin up. "This too shall pass" and everything will be back to normal.

As Red Green says:

Keep your stick on the ice.

Ok, guess you would have to be Canadian to get that. <wink>
