  1. Web-Design Social Media Update

    Social media is a pervasive part of today’s culture, whether you’re looking at it from a user standpoint or a marketing standpoint. The social web has the largest amount of traffic, endless user engagement and is the place to be to maintain any sort of web presence. Sharing buttons and integrated features are a commonly touted tool for Joomla templates, but with new social medias popping up practically every day, it’s important to figure out a good sharing balance, where to position your sharing buttons, and how many buttons are too many.

    Which Sites to Share?

    The first order of business is figuring out which social media sites are most appropriate for your website. You want to go with the high-traffic social media sites to start, such as Facebook, Google+, Reddit and Pinterest. Expanding further depends on your audience and your niche. Niche social media sites give you targeted traffic of those who are more likely to be interested in the topics you’re talking about, at the expense of having lower traffic volume. Take a look at where your target demographic likes to spend their time before deciding on other social media sites.

  2. How to choose the best Joomla Template for your project

    Invest your time better when desiging a site

    You already know that Joomla is a versatile platform with a theming system that provides great features and flexibility. As a Web developer working on your own projects or a client site, you also already know that it’s a great idea and the best use of your time to invest in purchasing a professional template to build upon. When you do this, you don’t have to focus on laying out the groundwork for your web-design project, because the template will take care of that. Instead, you can spend your time on the small details, the customization, the incorporated features, and the site design.

    The Joomla theme market is huge, so it’s important to go into the process with a list of features, requirements, and theme characteristics that will work best for your needs, skill level, and the particular project.
