Everyone and their grandmother, if not great-grandmother by now, use emoji — billions daily in collective use — to communicate a multitude of thoughts and expressions daily.
Whether by email, text, chat, clothing, or billboards, emoji marketing has nearly touched every possible form of communication, including domain names.
From Apple to Taco Bell to Domino’s to name a few, a growing number of brands are committing more and more marketing and advertising dollars to the use of emoji marketing.
One of the most recent announcements for brands entering the emoji marketing space with their own branded emoji — the pickup truck — is Ford Motor Company. Continue reading
I’ve grown to appreciate GoDaddy’s Domain Manager improvements over the years.
Some improvements have gotten better throughout the years, while others crashed, burned, and were likely dead on arrival.
However, I find myself missing GoDaddy’s old user experience for the Domain Manager. Continue reading
It’s the $64,000 — perhaps million dollar — question most domain investors ask or ponder from time to time when purchasing and renewing domains.
If you’re a domain investor, and this question hasn’t crossed your mind, then you’re likely wasting money, time, and effort calling yourself domain investing.
With almost a decade of domain investing under my belt now, I’ve learned the importance of answering this question and operating my domain investing business to strict adherence of strategic timeline for each and every investment. Continue reading
It’s been a while since I graced you all with a tutorial using GoDaddy’s Aftermarket API.
In fact, I haven’t written a tutorial since the one about retrieving a list of GoDaddy domains you own.
Although today’s tutorial is not about retrieving a list of domains, you’ll likely use the previous tutorial in conjunction to today’s tutorial covering how to renew a domain for a given time period. Continue reading
It’s hard to believe a few years has passed since I wrote the tutorial about how to use Facebook’s Graph API 2.X to retrieve the count for a given URL’s likes, shares, and comments.
I was informed a few days ago that my seamless solution for displaying the total count for likes, shares, and comments is dead in the water and no longer works.
Well, I guess this means we’re all in the dark now since Facebook’s most recent API upgrade doesn’t allow for such desired functionality, right? Continue reading
Today’s tutorial is likely to bring tears of joy to the eyes of us that have long struggled with capturing full screenshots of web pages.
Of course, whether Windows or Mac, capturing a screenshot of displayed content is easy. A simple press of the PrtScr button in Windows or if using a Mac, then simple press Shift+Command+3 keys.
And if these options are too complex, then there are a slew of browser add-ons and 3-party applications and software to capture simple and advance screenshots.
Technology to build and develop websites has journeyed quite a ways in the last 30 or more years, yet still has a way to go. Where will websites venture next? No one knows.
But no matter the technology behind the website, the one constant most website operators desire is the ability to keep their website content fresh and relevant, while maintaining the flexibility and fluidity to keep content dynamic in nature.
One of the most neglected elements of most websites is the lonely sidebar. Most websites will update their sidebars sparingly with a new product, lead magnet, or newsletter sign up just beneath the search bar, recent posts or trending posts.
