Websites that have unique designs are more likely to attract visitors than those plain-looking ones. This year, new web design trends are emerging early to let you use them on your site. You may suggest to your web design provider to use it if you’ve yet to put up a website or planning to revamp the current one:
HD Backgrounds – Large image backgrounds have been popping everywhere, but for this year, expect high-definition background pictures with a more 3D look to it, and a minimalist type of on-screen text that utilizes big and eye-catching fonts.
Long Pages – People are now more accustomed to using their mobile phones and tablets when surfing the web. This makes scrolling down much easier than clicking a connected link. Place all the info you need in one or two long pages, and avoid too much interlinking of pages.
Ghost Buttons – The addition of ghost buttons will be perfect for large image backgrounds, because they give the impression of another invisible layer on the page. With the right design, you can even accomplish a full 3D with it.
Text-Centered Layout – Also expect text to be compressed in the center of the page, giving the page a bordered look, but with a background that extends outside the border. This gives it a sophisticated appearance that makes readers keep their eyes on the text, but enjoy the background from the corner of their eyes. This will be very effective when creating a mobile-friendly version of your site.

Heightened awareness of the need for security is creating a demand for security companies. This is an opportunity for security firms to promote themselves online. Here are some things an SEO company can assist you with:
A fully functional website populated with authoritative content is key to helping users get a better gauge of your services. Keywords are a vital part of the SEO front in the sense that they help a search engine rank a business or service based on what online users type into a search field. For a security company, this may depend on your target market’s preferred services, industry, and location. In the case of location, you may tap localization methods to zero in on potential clients within the area.
A security firm must account for its personnel’s experience and proficiencies to accurately find the right clients. Some security personnel may specialize in close-in protection for VIPs while others may be more attuned to commercial facilities. An experienced SEO consultant can rework your content to properly target certain companies using specific keywords and location combinations.
People in need of security services want to learn straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak. You can take advantage of this by maintaining a blog, focusing on various issues in the security industry and discussing where your firm fits in. The objective is to show your clients you care for their safety without being too firm and taking on a humdrum tone.

It’s almost mother’s day and as a mother you have it all. A family, friends, a business, and love, but sometimes it can be overwhelming at times for you.
Having it all isn’t easy for a ‘Mompreneur’, but you somehow manage to do it. I mean, just look at the very definition of what a mompreneur is; a female business owner who is actively harmonizing the role of mom and the role of entrepreneur. That is a lot to take on at once and so sometimes you may need a little help.
Look at social media for instance. You already have a lot to do for your business, and having to keep up on your social media can just make life even more stressful. Sure it’s just social media, but social media is very time consuming. Not only do you have to keep up to date on all the sites your business uses like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., but you have to interact with all of your customers and potential customers. They may have questions about your business or just may be commenting to just say a quick hello. But it’s you as the business owner who has to be on top of it. Here are a few ways to boost your social media presence:
· Always get to know your customer. What do they like to do? What are their hobbies and passions? What do they hate? Basically get into their lives and then post and talk about what would interest them. It does not always need to be about your product but about creating a relationship with them enough for them to trust you to buy your product when you do mention it. Get them to like you or your company and you will make sales.
· Post on your sites every day. You will stay on their radar. And will more likely get engagement. The more “likes” and “comments” you get the more your updates get seen.
· Talk, talk, talk. Most of us ladies are really great talkers. I mean that is what makes social media so awesome in helping to market your business right? Answer your customer’s comments, like comments, share other pages and people’s updates and get out there on other pages and profiles to comment also. Just mingle online.
Whether you do your own social media or decide to hire someone to help you with it, remember that you are a Rock Star, and this Mothers’ Day will be the best one yet because you deserve it!... Oh, as a Mompreneur myself, I’d like to offer a tip for your social media management – the Atlanta SEO professionals at All Web, LLC (not a shameless plug, huh?)

Year after year, May commemorates the many talents, works and lives of Asian Pacific Americans. Of course, only retiring from the military a few years ago, Service Members are still my passion. Therefore, I’d like to render a salute to the more than 300,000 Asian Pacific Americans who are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. From serving the nation in the military, serving their local communities in Project Open Hand (www.OpenHand.org) to the artistic celebration of varied lives retold in the Hungry Ghosts Exhibition by the Asian American Women Artists Association – America and the World thanks you for your sacrifice and support!
