En Laredo Tx – Abril 2016

7 May

Hola a todos los lectores de mi blog, como cada 6 meses aqui andamos renovando guardarropa de la familia. Tradicionalmente Laredo es un destino familiar para hacer algunas compras y tambien es un paseo agradable para la familia. Para los niños es como una pequeña vacacion y a nosotros tambien nos sirve como una pequeña distraccion.

Ahora mismo todos estan durmiendo, son las 5:51 de la mañana y yo voy en camino a mi trote matutino, regresare para seguir con el ritual de las compras.

Product Photography, Before and After…

16 Apr

One of the few calm weekends that I had in the last Christmas holidays I decided to show my wife why it was important to pay attention to the product photography in order to improve the sales.

Torre Eiffel Toy 2 002

I took one little (and cheap) replica of the Eiffel Tower that I had brought from my recent trip to Europe and I took a picture with a normal (and cheap) camera. The photo and the product is exactly the same  in both pictures, but with if you work a little bit with Photoshop, then you can make it more appealing to your customer.

Why do I need a Blog?

27 Mar

I was given the task to create a Blog by one of my professors of Information Technologies.  So I thought I may be wise to find out on the web what is the big fuss about having a Blog, here is what I found:

    1. If you have the time and you want to share the news, stories, interesting articles or nice pictures (personal or not) you may do that in a blog. Be careful what you publish, a lot of people may be able to see it… and reproduce it.
    2. If you have a business or a particular expertise that you can monetize, you want to have a Blog that creates fresh content that may attract people that shares your interest.
    3. If you want to share interesting articles or videos in an organized way, this may be the way to go, but I am still to find that out.

All in all, as you may know already, things in internet grow old pretty fast, so if you are not planning to post on your blog once a week at least, don’t bother to have one, you may as well keep your Facebook account alive and you should be ok.

Here are some do’s and don’ts that I found out that made sense to me:

    • Do post regularly, I said already that things grow old very fast on the internet, plus if you don’t post new content, the Google spiders will never acknowledge your existence.
    • Do make sure that your followers have a way to contact you, try to include discrete links with your twitter and webpage information, otherwise it does not make sense.
    • Do try to make immediately apparent to your visitors the objective or theme of your blog (and I am not following my own advise)…
    • Do subscribe to your own blog… you need to experience the pain that your subscribers are experiencing.
    • Do not post unrelated information, I think that visitors may not appreciate scattered or off-message blogging, then they will not come back.
    • Do not mix business and private live (as far as I am concerned that is a rule]). If you are connecting a Twitter or Facebook account in your blog, you probably want to have your business related account and a personal related account. Maybe not, I am just saying.

I hope this helps… comments are Welcome.
