Search engine optimization has become a hugely popular service. The number of SEO providers is phenomenal. Unfortunately is not super easy to tell the experts from the newbie. With this kind of a situation most clients are finding it difficult to find talented SEO consultants to optimize their sites; after all - every website design company claims to provide quality SEO services. As a marketer, how do you ensure that you attract and retain as many clients as possible? There are some efforts that can be made to ensure that your firm remains high in quality and respected. One of the best efforts you can make is to under promise and over deliver. Long lasting success will prevail if you follow this methodology.


A large majority of SEO experts are known for their hype. Internet advertising clients are overwhelmed by promises of heaven on earth. Cut throat competition within search engine optimization circles has made some of the so called SEO consultants peddle anything to make a dollar. If you want to attract and retain clients, never promise them instant success. Nobody can guarantee this, there are unforseen issues and problems that even the experts cannot account for. Rather tell them that you will do your best as an Internet advertising services provider to improve traffic to their website, and then provide them proof of past success for other clients. Then outperform yourself and give the best service possible to keep your clients coming back. Deliver more than you promised!

Ensure that your clients don't have any misconceptions

Traditionally the best way to show success is showing clients how much traffic has increased for a specific web site, also noting ranking improvements to clients. Many SEO experts are good at promising their clients a large number of increased hits, however they don't always deliver. Conversely, hits are not actual site visitors. Any action from the server can cause hits, One page loading could count as 100 hits; this is because each image loaded and each file accessed is considered a hit. To determine the activity in a site you should focus on actual unique visitors to your site, versus hits. SEO providers should always be open to their client base and provide all statistical information available.

Let your client understand about the time lag before indexing & top placement

When it comes to search engine optimization, grabbing a top ranking often times takes 2-6 months. This is because SEO providers are being hired to beat competition that have been promoting their website for (often times) years. Make sure that your client understands that search engine optimization does not mean instant traffic. This is a service that can take time, and depending on the skills of the SEO consultants it could take a while. The great thing about this service is that the long lasting intrinsic value is awesome. Internet marketing requires patience especially at the beginning. For instance, you should never promise results in weeks or a month (even if the potential is there). Depending on the size of the project and scope of the competition, often times noticeable results don't appear for 2-3 months. Twelve weeks gives a good margin of safety when telling your clients about the time for results. Earlier visits will be a pleasant surprise to your clients and they will always believe in your credentials. 


Always act and think long term

Never be carried away by short term gratifications. Some SEO experts only care about their money and where to get the next project. Internet marketing is a regular activity so it would be important to build a good rapport with the client by working hard to follow through with promises. Educate your client as much as possible. You will reap the benefits of unwavering loyalty from clients and thus build your name and increase your reputation.


These are just a few of the things to do to ensure that you are always in demand. Always keeping you ahead of the pack!

Providing more detailed information, the electoral roll contains the names and addresses of all registered voters in the UK and there are two versions, the full and the edited version. From 2003 onwards, voters could choose to have their details omitted from the edited version of the electoral roll. However, these names and addresses will still be included in the full electoral register. This is why the electoral roll has become an important tool for researching the whereabouts of lost friends and relatives.

I will pose an answer to this question with another question. Is the sky blue? At this point you either think I am losing it, or you clearly understand where this is headed – and kudos to you if the latter is true! The sky is in fact not blue or red or even orange for that matter. Its color depends upon the time of day, whether we are color blind, if we have sunglasses on, or if we can even see at all! Likewise with ScrapeBox or any other tool, software can be abused and thrown around like a plague on the human race, which sadly is the case more often than not. On the flip-side of that coin however is an overwhelming amount of power that can help speed up daily tasks and production for even the purest of the pure, hardcore white-hat junkies. ScrapeBox is a piece of software that costs $97. This software collects (or scrapes obviously) information off of the internet. Some of its features include:

Kendal, if a page is relevant to your sites, so are the outbound links. So I’d just keep plugging away at UK career info pages.

White Hat SEO Techniques

Good question, Rob. This can definitely work for local businesses. But you’re right: it takes a slightly different approach. One of the hardest parts of doing outreach for brick and mortar business or large sites is finding the right person to get in touch with. If you dig deep you can usually find the right email address somewhere on the site. If not, I recommend using the general “contact us” page and asking them to forward your message to the right person.

That’s right—keyword research is still important in 2017. With Google providing less KW data all the time, two of the largest SEO tool providers, Moz and Ahrefs, have developed and improved KW tools hoping to fill the void. However, the way one goes about performing and using the results from KW research in 2017 has changed, thanks to RankBrain.

What is white hat and black hat SEO and why is it important?

Time for a timely and utterly insipid post that smacks of wanting exposure, but being unwilling to apply myself… Oh. Right. So much work! Great article, Ryan!

29. Take user intent into account. Most buyer keywords have prefixes like buy, discount, how to, cure, coupon, help for, etc. Your keywords/website pages should help solve other people’s problems.

There was a time when a post could be a few hundred words and rank well. Though this is still true in some cases, top industry players have longer-form content. According to a serpIQ study, the average content length of the top 10 results on search engine results pages was more than 2,000 words.

2. Create dedicated pages for each targeted keyword, but don’t go overboard with it. If you target the “small business seo” keyword, for example, you should create a

Interesting article. Thanks for explaining it step by step. It looks like white hat SEO is really a ton of work!! Is it true that not all the blogs are providing follow links form comment section? So how do we know which ones are worth a shot? For example, right now I am commenting here, but is it a backlink? DISQUS allows that? Blog moderator allows that? o_O

This addon connects to a Google database and checks the sites for any Malware currently or from days gone by. As the process is running, you are able to glance very quickly and see which ones are the offenders. Note that sometimes errors will occur for various reasons. For this example, I grabbed a list of pinging URLs. The screenshot below shows the system in action and what you can expect to see:

For example, a website that is optimized for search engines, yet focuses on relevancy and organic ranking is considered to be optimized using White Hat SEO practices. Some examples of White Hat SEO techniques include using keywords and keyword analysis, backlinking, link building to improve link popularity, and writing content for human readers.

Outdated content makes your site look stale from both an algorithm and user perspective. You can delete or use a 301 redirect (this sends users to the new URL, which is time-consuming) for old content, but your best option is to refurbish it. Refurbishing old content keeps the page fresh and improves its quality because you're giving it a new feel with a modern perspective.

Completely love how you dedicate one hour to writing each day. Getting started has def. become the most difficult part, but how are you getting getting past writer’s block after a couple of months, and how often do you have other teams members at your company assist you with great content? Love Your Work!

@Master Splinter – I can’t really see there being a problem with what you have done. You have not done it to be sneaky or anything like that, and I am pretty sure that your site is not ranking for the keywords you have in Black colored text anyway, so there really shouldn’t be a problem.

147. Make sure to keep your website clean and free from links that point out to shady websites. Update its CMS and plug-ins regularly and back it up regularly. Often times, this can be done by your hosting provider for a small fee, or it may even be included in a regular hosting package.

99. Don’t get obsessed with getting as much website traffic as possible; if it doesn’t convert to sales, it is useless! It is much better to target keywords with a lower search volume and big conversion rates, rather than optimize your site for keywords that attract lots of non-paying visitors.

151. Adding a forum to your website is a quick, inexpensive way of boosting authority by increasing its number of pages and traffic. Remember to set aside the time that’s needed to moderate the forum, though.

Diffen › Technology › Internet The difference between black hat and white hat SEO relates to the specific techniques used when trying to improve the search engine ranking of a website or web page. Search engine optimization or SEO is the process by which volume and quality of traffic to a web site can be improved. The higher ranked a site is higher on the search engine results pages (SERP), the more visitors the website naturally gets. Owing to the rising importance of search engines like Google, SEO is a much sought-after internet marketing strategy. Search engines determine their rankings through propreitary algorithms that are secret and closely guarded. However, these algorithms are based on certain well-known principles. Search engine optimization seeks to apply these principles to improve search ranking. The difference between black hat and white hat SEO relates to what techniques are used when applying these principles. Black hat SEO refers to attempts to improve rankings in ways that are not approved by search engines and involve deception. They go against current search engine guidelines. White hat SEO refers to use of good practice methods to achieve high search engine rankings. They comply with search engine guidelines.

i had to adjust my model. i no longer hire a ton of link builders — instead, i use freelance writers. real, american, journalists with their own set of connections to websites. i then train them on content distribution strategies and send them off to write a shit load of content for various sites as well as for the client’s.

Oh man, blog commenting is so ridiculous seen from a publisher perspective. You really underestimate a good publisher’s editorial. They will set you and your IP on Spam and you’ll be blacklisted everywhere. Can you really call that “White Hat”? I see this shit everyday, and it’s nothing else than this.

88. Set up Google Alerts for your website URL and company name. This way, you will be able to discover websites that have mentioned your site, but haven’t linked to it. Discover the valuable sites, contact their webmasters, and then politely ask them to turn the mentions into backlinks.

139. Some plug-ins can slow down your site a lot, making it lose its good rankings. Fortunately, P3 (Plugin Performance Profiler) will show you which plug-ins aren’t coded in an efficient manner.

16. Don’t buy an aged domain for your new website without checking it thoroughly. People have created fake PR9 domains by redirecting them to real PR9 sites, and then they have sold them for large amounts of money, for example. A good domain has many links from industry-related, highly authoritative websites pointing to it.

Excellent. I still believe users shouldn’t piss search engines by using black hat link building strategies. I am a blogger, and I have full faith in White Hat Link building tactics. By the way, you have written a wonderful piece. Keep up the good work.

Even though quick results make black hat SEO tempting, it can get your site banned (de-indexed) or heavily penalized for use of unethical practices. It is widely believed that the risk is not worthwhile for websites that plan to be operational over the long haul. Moreover black hat SEO methods give only short term results. White hat SEO can get your site ranked higher by use of ethical techniques, good content, appropriate keywords and a combination of smart marketing angles providing long lasting results.

SEO can be used to push unethical ideas (racism, war, ignorance, sweat shop labor for companies like Nike, etc.). Just as frequently SEO can be used to push ethical ideas (equality, peace, education, safe and honest working conditions, etc.).

61. Google will usually display the first 50-60 characters from your title tag in its search results. As a general rule, your article titles should fit nicely into a 512 pixels display. Keep the title tags short and punchy; otherwise, they will not be displayed in their entirety in Google’s search results.

Excellent. I still believe users shouldn’t piss search engines by using black hat link building strategies. I am a blogger, and I have full faith in White Hat Link building tactics. By the way, you have written a wonderful piece. Keep up the good work. Reply

18. If you plan to buy a new domain, go for a .com extension; most of the big brands ranking to the top of Google own .com domains. If you run a non-profit organization, a .org domain would be more appropriate, of course.

In 1998, Graduate students at Stanford University, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, developed "Backrub", a search engine that relied on a mathematical algorithm to rate the prominence of web pages. The number calculated by the algorithm, PageRank, is a function of the quantity and strength of inbound links. PageRank estimates the likelihood that a given page will be reached by a web user who randomly surfs the web, and follows links from one page to another. In effect, this means that some links are stronger than others, as a higher PageRank page is more likely to be reached by the random surfer.

Marketers Love Whitehat Inbound because our tech make life easier with a single dashboard for all tools and channels. Everything is implemented based on inbound marketing best practice. Best of all the reporting to the CEO and sales is easy with a clear, real time, ROI on all marketing efforts.

Webmasters and content providers began optimizing sites for search engines in the mid-1990s, as the first search engines were cataloging the early Web. Initially, all webmasters needed only to submit the address of a page, or URL, to the various engines which would send a "spider" to "crawl" that page, extract links to other pages from it, and return information found on the page to be indexed. The process involves a search engine spider downloading a page and storing it on the search engine's own server. A second program, known as an indexer, extracts information about the page, such as the words it contains, where they are located, and any weight for specific words, as well as all links the page contains. All of this information is then placed into a scheduler for crawling at a later date.

33. Choose keywords you can easily rank for. Stay away from highly competitive keywords that are targeted by the big companies, or prepare to spend a lot of time and money with your SEO without having any guarantee that you will win the fight. Fortunately, the big guys don’t care about keywords that have hundreds of searches per month, while a small business owner can make a decent living by getting good rankings for a dozen of carefully chosen, low competition keywords.

40. The duplicate content penalty has to do with having duplicate content pieces on your own website, and not with somebody else reusing your website content; otherwise, news sites, press release sites and lyrics sites would be penalized. Just make sure that there aren’t any duplicate/very similar pages on your website.

As of 2009, there are only a few large markets where Google is not the leading search engine. In most cases, when Google is not leading in a given market, it is lagging behind a local player. The most notable example markets are China, Japan, South Korea, Russia and the Czech Republic where respectively Baidu, Yahoo! Japan, Naver, Yandex and Seznam are market leaders.

One white hat quick link building technique is to search for sites that allow blog posts on their sites by creating your own account. Not article directories rather real sites that have real quality content on their sites, and that allow do-follow links inside the article. Those sites might difficult to find but in some niche like gardening, home improvement it is easily available.

In 2014 (the most recent data available), Searchmetrics reported that over a third of Google search results incorporated Rich Snippets supported by Schema, but only 0.3% of websites were making use of the Google-approved Schema tool. I suspect that percentage has improved over that past couple of years, but the opportunity to use Schema as a competitive edge is still huge.

Great stuff! I remember the old days and how we used to do things. But, you’re right, it’s a new era and these techniques are a must! I am using all of these with my creation of niche websites and the work, though time consuming at times, surely pays off. Nice work!

20. Your pages don’t load as fast as they should because the images aren’t properly optimized. Open a website page, and then press the Print Screen key (Windows) or Command + Shift + 3 (Mac). Then, paste the clipboard image into your favorite graphics editor and measure the width of the actual content.

Some search engines have also reached out to the SEO industry, and are frequent sponsors and guests at SEO conferences, chats, and seminars. Major search engines provide information and guidelines to help with site optimization. Google has a Sitemaps program to help webmasters learn if Google is having any problems indexing their website and also provides data on Google traffic to the website. Bing Webmaster Tools provides a way for webmasters to submit a sitemap and web feeds, allows users to determine the crawl rate, and track the web pages index status.

Google Instant, real-time-search, was introduced in late 2010 in an attempt to make search results more timely and relevant. Historically site administrators have spent months or even years optimizing a website to increase search rankings. With the growth in popularity of social media sites and blogs the leading engines made changes to their algorithms to allow fresh content to rank quickly within the search results.

For straight up link begging, I’ve found that something simple and straightforward works. My script is something like: “I found your list of resources. I also have a good one. It’d be great if you could add mine to the list”. There are a few tricks to make it more effective, but that’s the basic gist.

Page and Brin founded Google in 1998. Google attracted a loyal following among the growing number of Internet users, who liked its simple design. Off-page factors (such as PageRank and hyperlink analysis) were considered as well as on-page factors (such as keyword frequency, meta tags, headings, links and site structure) to enable Google to avoid the kind of manipulation seen in search engines that only considered on-page factors for their rankings. Although PageRank was more difficult to game, webmasters had already developed link building tools and schemes to influence the Inktomi search engine, and these methods proved similarly applicable to gaming PageRank. Many sites focused on exchanging, buying, and selling links, often on a massive scale. Some of these schemes, or link farms, involved the creation of thousands of sites for the sole purpose of link spamming.

Harvesting material is a good way to get an overview of the market, however you won’t get much accomplished unless you actually do something with that data. The best way to launch your website to the top of the SERPs in 2013 is by forming relationships with those in the industry, by cultivating useful information, and by having an authority status in your select market. Outreach to influential people is one of the best ways to get this done and you can accomplish that goal with ScrapeBox. Let’s take a look. Some people still search the following set of phrases manually in order to find link prospects:

The work of most search engine optimization companies, however, operate in a gray area, aptly named Gray Hat search engine optimization. Whether by design or pressure from clients to deliver results, many search engine optimization companies try to deliver solutions and results for customers by utilizing techniques which don't quite cross the line into black hat SEO, but are well outside of what would be considered white hat search engine optimization.

For example, ccTLDs; these are country code specific extensions so they represent a particular country e.g. .co.uk for UK and .ie for Ireland.Some popular TLDs include .com, .co.uk, .net, .org. You may also hear of new gTLDs, these are extensions like .photography, .guru, .ninja, .london, .legal, .sucks etc. These extensions are often used by individuals or companies who use the extension to describe more accurately what they do. Some businesses and brands register their domain name in a number of extensions to ensure their brands are protected.What is DNS?The Domain Name System(DNS) is like a directory for all websites on the Internet. It converts text-based domain names into a set of numbers known as Internet Protocol (IP addresses).

Transferring a domain name from an existing host to us is simple, although before the domain name can be moved you may need to contact your current web hosting provider to either obtain an Auth Code or to change the IPSTAG's, depending on the type of domain you wish to transfer away. For .uk domain names Before a domain transfer order can be placed with Zen Internet you will need to arrange for the IPS tag (or Internet Provider Security tag)/ or registrar tag to be changed to ZENSYS. If your current host provides you with an online portal to amend details for your domain name, you may be able to change these details without having to contact the current host. Once the domain is tagged as ZENSYS you are ready to place your domain transfer order with Zen Internet online and can expect fulfilment of the order within 24 – 48 hours. For non .uk domain names If you wish to transfer a non .uk domain to Zen Internet, you will need to arrange for your current web hosting provider to provide an Auth Code/ transfer key before the domain can be released. This code ensures that domains are not transferred away unlawfully and to ensure that only the rightful domain owner can arrange for domains to move providers. For either type of domain transfer, once you have arranged for the IPSTAGS to be changed (.uk) or you have received an Auth Code (non .uk), you will be able to progress your order to move the domain to Zen. Please also bear in mind that you will need the provide details of where the domain is to point mail and/or web traffic if this is an active domain. This is usually an IP address and can be obtained from your current web hosting provider if you do not have these details already.

Different extensions suit different purposes. For example, if your website is aimed at a UK audience, it makes sense to choose a .co.uk domain. If you want your website to have international exposure, consider registering the same domain name with .eu and .com extensions. Securing your domains with as many available extensions as possible is the best way to reach the widest audience.

If you're confused about your extension, try these helpful tips; .COM is by far the most popular for worldwide options and general domain registration. If you are a Not-for-Profit, NGO, or a charity, try using .ORG – short for organisation, these are commonly associated with organisations that don’t operate for the profit or gain of individual members which translates to those viewing your website.

Domain names are often simply referred to as domains and domain name registrants are frequently referred to as domain owners, although domain name registration with a registrar does not confer any legal ownership of the domain name, only an exclusive right of use for a particular duration of time. The use of domain names in commerce may subject them to trademark law.

Lee Attwood Most companies that have those cheap hosting packages as advertised on TV do not offer the same level of support I have had from Pickaweb. www.graphicvent.com Jacqui Marola Pickaweb is honest and have given me some great advice. I have recommended them to lots of people. www.jam-hair.com Paul Feakins As a web agency, we deal with different web hosts and are often disappointed by slow and scripted replies that don't solve the problem. Not with Pickaweb, which is why we frequently recommend them. www.antropy.co.uk Jonny Pathan Pickaweb understood our problems from the get-go and recommended a package that would suit us as web designers. We had a VPS spun up in no time and were helped through the entire process with a free migration. www.watb.co.uk Steve Leard The best feature for me is the Live Chat function, so if I really need help I can talk to someone directly and quickly. www.leard.co.uk Alma Caira Excellent technical support, especially when I updated my website to Wordpress format and needed step by step instructions on how to do so. www.almacaira.co.uk

Visual Composer plugin v5.1.1 - Free Nulled download - Cracked Hut

Last yr, I bought a theme from Themeforest that has packaged VC in it. There is no updates from VC. From day 1, the frontend editor was not working. Now the backend editor stops working too. I wonder whether it is due to the lack of updates from VC. Can I buy VC direct from CodeCanyon into my current theme. Will it conflict with the existing packaged VC?

I have two questions: 1. Is envato the only place where one can purchase Visual Composer? 2. Also, if I purchase the regular license, but then later on decide or realize I will need the extended license, can I just pay for for the difference to get the extended lincense? or would I need to pay for the full amount ($150) to get the upgrade to the extended lincense?

Hey Chriso, when deactivating Paid Memberships Pro it will leave behind a short code for all the pre-generated pages such as checkout, account, etc. That’s why I recommend people install and setup their membership site on a subdomain such as my.yourwebsite (dot) com and how the main domain be your landing page/blog.

Team Showcase for Visual Composer Plugin v3.1 - Nulled Center

Bruce, Visual composer 4.6.1 was released 11 July 15. Latest Zoner theme update was in 24 June 15. New visual composer will be included with theme update, when we will check if everything working correctly.

Visual Composer v5.0.1 – Page Builder for WordPress Free Download ...

Installation Install and activate the Visual Composer page builder. Unzip the downloaded livemesh-vc-addons.zip file and upload to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory or install the Visual Composer Addons by Livemesh plugin from WordPress repository. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. For Portfolio element, install and activate the optional plugin Jetpack by WordPress.com.

Free & Open Source Visual Website Composer Why to risk with nulled version of premium page builder when open source alternative is available? Free Download See Our Free Themes No license restrictions  Free updates and support Don't risk your safety by using nulled WordPress plugins on your website. Pirated versions of premium plugins are infected with malicious code, so hackers can get access to your website and use it for their black seo techniques and spam distribution. Forget about license keys, disabled plugin updates or license limitations. Get our 100% free and open source page builder today.

One thing we’ve been looking into at UpThemes is how to integrate some of these new page builder plugins without causing a ton of support overhead and also causing them to break when switching themes. The ideal situation is for users to change a theme and retain all the custom content design and HTML that may have been generated within the content of a post. Obviously, when switching themes, people need to consider whether their new theme supports a full-width page layout or no-sidebar layout to accomodate content that requires room to breathe or an edge-to-edge appearance. We’ve actually been quite impressed with the MP Stacks plugin which offers a simple UI for managing page layouts, even though it’s not as clean as VelocityPage’s offering.

Icon Fonts (or Font Icons) are an amazing way to bring your designs to life. More and more designs rely on icon fonts to explain features, functionality, and to direct users to the most essential content of the design. With 4k Icon Fonts you are guaranteed to have access to more than nine thousand (initially four thousand, but the plugin has grown since its inception) unique icon fonts that can be easily navigated through a concise in-built library. Each icon font can also be customized for your own requirements; size, color, shape, and even hover effects. Includes all of the popular icon sets, and plenty of unique sets that you won’t find anywhere else.

Supreme Shortcodes will also work for WordPress bloggers who haven’t installed Visual Composer, but as an addon for VC — we couldn’t recommend Supreme Shortcodes enough. This bad boy adds more than one hundred unique shortcodes to your blog that you will learn to love and admire during your experiences in using them. Some of the shortcode elements you will be getting include; rows (responsive), dividers for splitting content, animated shortcodes for things like tabs, buttons, modals, and more. The area of focus for Supreme Shortcodes is to help you have access to the kind of tools that modern standards of web design would require of you. The core of Supreme Shortcodes is based on Bootstrap, insuring responsiveness in any situation imaginable. Other cool elements this VC extension will bring to the table include Font Awesome shortcodes, custom pricing tables, custom contact forms, Google Charts and Google Trends, even the option to begin sharing video content with your visitors; sometimes things are better understood when presented in authentic video format.

Fastline also has a good demo which has a really nice theme selector. Like VelocityPage, you can start with a pre-built template, as opposed to having to build your own pages each and every time (drag and drop editors are best used for editing, not creating, IMHO). If the template selector is part of the plugin, though, that’s a huge win for client usage.

Again, depending on the theme you are using with the Visual Composer the formatting options available to you may be different. While some theme developers choose to leave the Visual Composer as-is, many customize the plugin to fit the needs or style of their theme.

Recensioni Love it kboyjoon I use “Grid elements that displays portfolio/blog entries in a nice responsive grid. Masonry and packed options are supported.” on my website and like it so much. Thanks a lot The Best Out There crelegant A total of 15 Visual Composer Elements come with this plugin having extensive options and are highly customizable as well. All the elements are well thought out and look perfect across all devices. I am using this plugin for a theme development project and it saved me lot of development hours. What more you can ask for? Simply amazing! Will credit back once my theme is up for sale and donate as well for the author efforts and to keep the plugin development active. Thanks @livemesh! Could be fantastic bonsaigil I really want to love this plugin. Offering all the extra components and functionality, for free, is great and there’s some well designed options to choose from. The downside is that, for me, this plugin breaks the full width component of Visual Composer. If you zoom in or out, any full width elements on the page don’t resize. (turn plugin off – all goes back to normal) Also custom class inputs are missing from the elements I tried. I didn’t try them all, I was mainly looking for a carousel replacement to the inbuilt jerky VC one. I look forward to seeing this plugin grow and I’ll be happy to update my review in the future. Killer! awsm.in It does what it promises. Tabs, accordions, charts, teams, carousels and all work great! Great job. One of the best addon for Visual Composer aravindajith I just can’t believe it’s free! Thanks to @livemesh! баг eeeMan если поставить галочку full width при редактировании ряда, то контент не корректно отображается на мобильных устройствах

The first time background videos were introduced to web design, it seemed like a ludcirous idea at the time. Who in their right mind would want to add video files to their website, when such files could significantly slow down the site? At first, the idea was something that only a special kind of websites would use, but nowadays we see more small businesses and startups utilizing video backgrounds as website introductions. With Background Videos, you will be able to select ANY of the VC rows that you are making, and add background videos to them. Most notably, it’s probably going to be the header row that you will want to spice up with some neat background videos.

Because of these reasons (along with many others), X does not support Visual Composer’s native shortcodes. While you can turn on these shortcodes if desired as mentioned in the previous section, it is recommended that you utilize X’s native shortcodes for a streamlined experience in using the theme.

The plugin will automatically display the various content types included in your WordPress theme. Just select which you’d like to use with the Visual Composer page builder. The example above is from our Total theme, which is why there are added options for portfolio, staff and testimonials (all custom post types) as well as forums, topics, reply and products (related to the bbPress and WooCommerce plugins supported by Total).

It started as premium plugin released on CodeCanyon Live Composer started as premium plugin on CodeCanyon in 2014, but later we adopted open source ideology and make it completely free without restricting any of its great features. Moving from premium to freemium was a great challenge for our product and also for the development team. But we were driven by the idea that will come a day when anyone would build their website with ease and with no substantial investments. So far we never doubted the fairness of this decision and we continue to believe that Open Source is the future. Now everyone can build a custom designed website Starting your online business is hard. Do not limit yourself by restrictive license of premium plugin. Save your money and time for website promotion. Relying your business on closed solutions with restrictive terms has already been deadly for many businesses. You don’t have the freedom to decide, build or rethink your strategy whenever its necessary. There will be always someone on top of you who will decide what is permitted today and what is restricted tomorrow.

Visual Composer transforms the default WordPress page editor into a robust feature-rich editor that allows you to add columns, image galleries, accordions, tour sections, call-to-action buttons, videos, and much more.” – Haris Bacic, Forbes.com

Most users may switch themes every so often, but most users will not want to rebuild pages when doing so. So it’s best to use a page builder plugin that is independent of a theme, as long as they are compatible.

One of the best selling themes on the market, X The Theme comes bundled with Visual Composer. This theme gives new meaning to the word powerhouse when it comes to themes, as there is almost nothing you can’t achieve. Four individual stacks include more than 10 pre-defined layouts each, along with specialized templates and layouts that make this theme suitable for a variety of niches. On top of that, it’s highly customizable and includes integration with WooCommerce, MailChimp, Revolution Slider, and much more.

It can be used to change page layouts, modify the look of WordPress templates, and insert widgets into content. The plugin is more suited to customising themes than creating stylish pages, however there are add-ons available that allow you to add a slider, custom fields, and tables.

Great post, I love too hear this, that’s why we program a bid longer, to deliver a drag and drop builder like Dreamweaver with WYSIWYG Editors and GUI for CSS management. It takes a bid longer, but we think users will love it when they see what they get and not have too guess, what it could look like.

Ten years ago it was popular for theme developers to include content shortcodes in their theme. These shortcodes could be used to insert tables, add columns, style content, and more. It was a user-friendly way of letting WordPress users make their websites more professional.

Welcome to  Socializetime Networking. Networking is about meeting people and building long-term relationships. You need a vehicle to meet the right people, those with both a buying and selling power, from the right companies - representing a broad range of services and with a similar attitude towards active networking.

Networking Associations

Before online business networking, there existed face-to-face networking for business. This was achieved through a number of techniques such as trade show marketing and loyalty programs. Though these techniques have been proven to still be an effective source of income, many companies now focus more on online marketing due to the ability to track every detail of a campaign and justify the expenditure involved in setting up one of these campaigns. "Schmoozing" or "rubbing elbows" are expressions used among professional business professionals for introducing and meeting one another in a business context, and establishing business rapport.

The Social Business Network

Socializetime is a member driven organisation. We have an elected chairperson, secretary, treasurer and committee that exists to deliver the kind of network that the members require.

Attendance is resticted to decision makers who have both a buying and selling authority. The events are structured but informal with an aim of creating an ideal environment for constructive, and enjoyable, networking.

For example try to see your competitors as potential allies. There is a fine dividing line between the two behaviours, and positioning too many people/companies in the competitor camp can make life unnecessarily difficult. When you talk to your competitors you will often surprise yourselves at the opportunities to work together, in areas (service, territory, sector, application, etc) where you do not compete, and even possibly in areas where you do compete. This is particularly so for small businesses who can form strategic alliances with like-minded competitors to take a joint-offering to a market and compete for bigger contracts.

business networking business networking tips and techniques for networking events and networking websites Business networking is an effective low-cost marketing method for developing sales opportunities and contacts, based on referrals and introductions - either face-to-face at meetings and gatherings, or by other contact methods such as phone, email, and increasingly social and business networking websites. The shortened term 'networking' can be confused with computer networking/networks, which is different terminology, relating to connection and accessibility of multiple computer systems. A business network of contacts is both a route to market for you, and a marketing method. Business networking offers a way to reach decision-makers which might otherwise be very difficult to engage with using conventional advertising methods. In addition, business networking brings with it the added advantage of recommendation and personal introduction, which are always very helpful for developing business opportunities. Business networking is a way for you to make the maxim, "It's not what you know, it's who you know.." work for you. The principles and techniques of business networking are mostly common sense. Many of the behavioural principles apply also to business and relationships generally, and specifically to selling, managing, coaching, facilitating, etc. (Please note that some spellings in UK-English and US-English may vary, for example words like organisation/organization, behaviour/behavior. When using these materials please change the spellings to suit your local situation.)

If I ran a networking group, More Business Network would be my inspiration. The energy in the room is amazing. Group members look out for each other, their well-being as well as business links & contacts.

Every monthly lunch time event is carefully planned, to ensure our members are meeting the people they want to meet. Our well thought table plans, and detailed member knowledge, allows members and guests to network with purpose, in a relaxed environment, where the focus is building long term relationships, based on a principle of "know, like, trust".

More Business Network (MBN) is dedicated to supporting its members and promoting its businesses.  Knowing that fellow members are looking out for business opportunities for each other, inspires everyone to do the same.  In helping others with more business opportunities, the average MBN member receives more business themselves.  This is human nature; the Law of Reciprocity. The meetings are professional, supportive, friendly and relaxed but still have a structure to ensure members and guests can rely on meetings starting and finishing on time. At MBN you will get to know your business colleagues very well.  Both members and guests benefit from additional opportunities from visitors to the meetings. The objective of MBN is very simple…  The clue is in the name; to get MORE BUSINESS. This is the smarter way of doing business; having trusted business colleague and having access to their contacts.  It is a simple strategy, but it is very effective…  In fact, it has been proven that word of mouth marketing is the most successful way to get MORE BUSINESS Active Members Contacts Made More Business Deals Years of Experience

I'd been intending to join the DBN  for a long time but it was one of those things I never quite got around to doing until recently. Now I've attended several networking meetings I wish I'd joined sooner.  DBN members are friendly, passionate about what they do, helpful & welcoming.  The fabulous food supplied by the host venues is an added bonus too.

Certain non-business professional people can be hugely influential in networks, and greatly trusted because of their neutrality and professional standing - educators and scientists, for example. Journalists, surgeons, and magistrates, also. There are many others. It is not easy to make connections with these people through conventional business networking, but remember that a network is not only made of business-people, and be awake to these non-commercial connections when the chance comes.

At many networking events and situations you will have the opportunity to give a presentation to the assembled group. This is a wonderful chance for you to demonstrate your expertise in your specialist area, your positive confident character, and also to pass on some useful information.

Conferences Conferences are full of people with common interests. Coffee breaks are an ideal time to make introductions. Exhibitions Exhibitions are obviously full of business people with a common interest. Most exhibitions rightly do not like visitors to canvass the exhibitors, but there are plenty of other situations to meet people and network. Seminars Seminars attract business people of all sorts. Again there are usually coffee breaks which are ideal for making introductions and getting to know people. Training courses Open training courses are excellent for meeting other business people. Many will encourage informal networking among delegates because this adds value to the quality of the event; certain types of training bring people together in work teams, making it extremely easy to get to know all attendees very well. Chambers of Trade or Commerce All towns have at least one 'chamber of commerce', specifically to bring local business-people together. Many run networking events and/or other meetings and activities which are ideal for networking. Breakfast networking clubs Several companies run regular breakfast networking clubs as their primary business. Other companies will run one-off events to connect with the local business community. These purpose-designed events obviously provide a good opportunity to engage with other business people. Business networking websites Since the development of interactive website technology in the late 1990s there are increasing numbers of online business networking organizations. Each has its own culture and systems. Some are vast, covering all types of business imaginable, for example linkedin.com. Others are industry or trade specific, and some are geographically focused. All can be found quickly and easily by searching the web. Website forums Website forums exist for every subject you can think of. Each offers a networking opportunity for the subject matter concerned. Website user groups User groups are a further variation of groups found online. User groups are typically within the websites of major internet corporations such as Google and Yahoo. Many user groups are highly specialised, and by implication, internet networking is second-nature to most of these people. Professional body websites Every profession and trade is represented and connected by at least one official body, which tends to act on behalf of its members, and also offers various opportunities for outsiders to get involved and make helpful connections. Interactive special interest websites Networking has been made much easier with the advent of interactive membership websites. When you have identified your target groups, there will be a specialist membership website somewhere which represents and brings them together. Community social websites Facebook is the obvious example. There are many others. Culture and demographic profile are different in each. Some of these websites and memberships are vast. Bigger than countries. This is because of the social aspect, which might initially be appealing, but making a business impact can be very challenging due to the scale of these operations. Online/mobile communications applications Twitter is the obvious example. New internet platforms like these can grow from nothing to be hugely popular social connection systems in just a few months. Business people can use them to good effect if approached in a very dedicated and technically informed way. Otherwise they can become big time-wasters, so beware. Local networking events Anyone can set up a networking event, so you can find isolated or more permanent networking operations cropping up at a town near you. Speed networking events Speed networking is a highly structured type of networking event, in which an organizer (there are several, of varying type and quality) coordinates quick introductions among a group of typically between 20-40 people. The concept is similar, and probably modelled on speed-dating formats. Societies and associations Every specialist subject has its own society or association. These organizations offer various ways to meet their members. Institutes for industries Every industry has its own institute or similar. Various events and methods generally exist by which outsiders can engage with the institute's membership. Lectures and talks Lectures and talks occur widely, held or promoted by various organizations for all sorts of purposes. Obviously a lecture/talk will attract a common grouping of people interested in the subject concerned. Universities and colleges Universities and colleges are like little towns in their own right. Some are like quite big towns. They are also now run like big businesses. These communities contain a vast number of very interesting people, many of whom are very relevant to business. For the past twenty years or so, these big educational establishments have been increasingly keen to engage with business people of all sorts. It's a matter of talking to them and discovering what opportunities exist for getting involved. Hospitality events Corporate hospitality events - a rarer thing in modern times - are typically organized by big corporations to get to know their suppliers and customers better. If you find yourself involved in one of these it will present some of the best conditions for business networking that you will ever experience. Fill your boots, as they say. Shareholders meetings If you have company shares, especially in a big corporation, you will tend to meet a lot of business people at shareholder gatherings. Many shareholders do not invest just for financial reasons - many invest because they have an enthusiasm for the company's technology or culture, which in some cases can offer a relevant target group for your business networking aims. Annual General Meetings AGMs are by their nature a regular occasion offered by corporations and membership organizations to engage with its members. Some are very formal and tightly run with little networking opportunities, but others are more sociable affairs, in which case if the group is relevant to your aims, and you can become a member it's worth consideration. Conventions Conventions are organized for all sorts of special interest groups. If the group is relevant to your aims in any way, then their convention could offer excellent networking opportunities. Pressure groups Pressure group meetings are strongly connected and usually attended by very active and energized people. If the subject is relevant to your aims there will be opportunities to meet some interesting people at this sort of event. These situations often also have scope for volunteering and becoming involved at a strategic level. Public meetings Public meetings are held for all sorts of reasons, for example local planning consultations; presentation of local development plans. These events attract business people, especially if the subject relates to commerce, as many will do. At meetings like these, most attendees sit and listen for quite a while, and consequently are ready for conversation during breaks and at the close of the meeting. Product launches Product launches invariably offer at least one situation when attendees stand and mingle together drinking tea/coffee. Some have receptions afterwards. If you are able to attend one of these events where the subject is relevant to your aims, then you will find opportunities to network. The same applies to book launches and similar publicity events. Opening ceremonies Opening ceremonies, especially for notable new buildings, attract many local business people and dignitaries. If the community concerned is relevant to your aims this sort of event can provide useful networking opportunities. The same applies to unveiling ceremonies, especially where there is a reception afterwards. Festivals and shows Festivals are organized for many interests, and naturally attract a large group of people with related involvement, including business-people. Agricultural and county shows are a further example. If the subject is relevant, there'll be networking potential. Foreign trade visits Local chambers of commerce, regional development agencies, and similar business bodies routinely organize trade missions and gatherings to promote international trade for their region and/or members. Such activities offer excellent networking scope. Sports clubs Lots of business people enjoy sport, and enjoy mixing sport with business. Golf is the stereotypical example for sports club networking, although all sports, and other special interest clubs, tend to have many business people in their membership. If the group is relevant to your aims and you enjoy the activity concerned, consider becoming a member yourself. Other clubs Clubs exists for every hobby and interest you can imagine. Instead of sitting at home watching the TV, join a local club that interests you, and meet some new interesting people. Pubs Not all pubs are good for networking, but some are great, because they are the regular haunts of local business-people. For a very long time indeed, lots of business has been done in pubs. Trains, boats, planes, etc. Business-people tend to travel around a bit. When you are travelling too, keep your eyes and ears open and be ready to start conversation. Delays are particularly useful for making introductions. So are long plane and train journeys when you could be sat next to another business person for several hours. Make the most of these opportunities.

Business networking can have a meaning in the ICT domain, i.e. the provision of operating support to businesses and organizations, and related value chains and value networks.

This prompts an incidental 'lifestyle' tip - for business networking events where alcohol might be available: drink in moderation and keep a reasonably clear head. This is not to say that you should reject all local customs where drinking is involved. In many social business events, including many foreign situations, drinking and eating are a very significant part of relationship-building. Use your judgment. Alcohol to a degree certainly helps many social processes, but taken to extremes tends to be counter-productive.

Business networking clubs and websites are full of people with many connections but little of value to offer, and they achieve poor results. Good results come instead from being friendly and open, from taking the initiative, from working hard at sustaining genuinely helpful contributions wherever you meet people.

In face-to-face networking clubs there is often a 'clique culture', in which members are defensive or sometimes seemingly arrogant. This often indicates a requirement to become known and trusted, which takes time and effort. (That said, if there is genuine arrogance, you would be sensible to find a different group.)

BNI's (Business Network International) mission is to help members increase their business through a structured, positive, and professional referral marketing program that enables them to develop long-term, meaningful relationships with quality business professionals. Click here to find a chapter.

Mutual benefit (or mutual gain) is a common feature in successful networking - and this is a powerful underpinning principle to remember when building and using your own networking methods. It is human nature, and certainly a big factor in successful networking, for an action to produce an equal and opposite reaction. Effort and reward are closely linked.

Return or reward does not necessarily have to equate precisely to the initial gesture. Importantly, reward is whatever makes sense to the recipient. To some a simple 'Thank you' is adequate. To others something more concrete is required. It depends on the situation, the value of the exchange, and the individuals and relationship history.

Our events are the lifeblood of the organisation and, if you live anywhere near one of our 60+ host cities around the world, they will offer your best opportunities to benefit through contributing.

The word network first appeared in English around 1560. It meant, not surprisingly, 'a netlike structure', and actually originally referred to the process of making a net of some sort.

Consider that all sorts of professional people outside of the business community can also be very helpful networking contacts - for example, scientists, lecturers, educators, councillors, etc. When developing your networking plans, think beyond the people you'd typically see at other business networking events. Some of the most important connections are not business people, and consequently you need to be creative in reaching them. The examples of networking situations/methods below provides help with this later.

When giving presentations in these circumstances, avoid giving a hard-selling pitch, unless you are sure that such a style is appropriate. Usually it is not. Aim to inform and educate rather than to sell. In many networking situations a strong selling presentation is regarded as insulting by those present. This is especially so if you are a guest of a group that you would not normally meet regularly.

More Business Network (MBN) is dedicated to supporting its members and promoting its businesses.  Knowing that fellow members are looking out for business opportunities for each other, inspires everyone to do the same.  In helping others with more business opportunities, the average MBN member receives more business themselves.  This is human nature; the Law of Reciprocity.

N.B. In some situations your speech may flow smoother by inverting points 3 and 4, or combining them. If your organizational structure is complex do not attempt to explain it. The other person is not interested in this level of detail now - they just need to know where you operate, and an indication of scale.

In the late 20th century the study of business networks emerged in the specific field of industrial markets. Researchers concentrate on questions such as "what is happening underneath the visible flows of products, enquiries, sales visits and negotiations, and beyond the visible growth and prosperity of some companies and failure of others". Snehota & Hakansson explain:

Business networking is not simply finding customers in one-to-one meetings and connections; it's building a strong network, helpful for your aims. Accordingly project yourself as a great networker, as well as being a great supplier or specialist.

As you will see from the sustained focused effort point, business networking works best when it is attacked in a concentrated way. If you take on too many groups and websites at the same time you will be spread too thinly, and find it difficult to make an impact in any of them.

Aim high and big when thinking about and expressing yourself and your aims. Be realistic of course, but aim to be the best and to lead in some way, in whatever specialisms and market-place you operate.

Other professional people can be important networking contacts. Direct your targeting beyond obvious business people and obvious networking groups, but be mindful of the nature of the group, and conduct yourself appropriately.

Many businesses use networking as a key factor in their marketing plan. It helps to develop a strong feeling of trust between those involved and play a big part in raising the profile of a company. Suppliers and businesses can be seen as networked businesses, and will tend to source the business and their suppliers through their existing relationships and those of the companies they work closely with. Networked businesses tend to be open, random, and supportive, whereas those relying on hierarchical, traditional managed approaches are closed, selective, and controlling. These phrases were first used by Thomas Power, businessman and chairman of Ecademy, an online business network, in 2009.

To advertise courses and events please go the events page. You can add information about your Charity events, with photos and videos on the Charity Events page, under Member Events.

Many business people contend business networking is a more cost-effective method of generating new business than advertising or public relations efforts. This is because business networking is a low-cost activity that involves more personal commitment than company money. Country-specific examples of informal networking are guanxi in China, blat in Russia, good ol' boy network in America, and old boy network in the UK.

The principles and techniques of business networking are mostly common sense. Many of the behavioural principles apply also to business and relationships generally, and specifically to selling, managing, coaching, facilitating, etc.

That’s why so many companies include networking in their marketing plans. If you’re new to networking, we’ll be happy to introduce you to its considerable potential. If you have engaged with networking before or you’re just looking to find the right organisation to join, we’ll be delighted to invite you to one of our events and show you why our members love us.
