How to share your computer screen easily

How to share your computer screen easily

Have you ever needed to share your computer screen with a client to conduct training or maybe show some reports?

This week I needed to do just that as I had to share my computer screen with a client for some training on Twitter that I was giving.

I needed a free, quick & easy tool, and after a quick search, I came across a tool called screen leap which allows you 1 hour free per day for up to 8 people.

I know there are plenty of these types of screen share tools but my experience with this one was very positive so it is one to try and see how you get on.

As a bonus, I have a second tool for you to look at.

The second tool is for all you WordPress users. It’s a cool plugin to allow you easily install the FaceBook pixel on your site for ad creation purpose if you don’t want to have to paste code etc.

The plugin is called Pixel Caffeine by AdEspresso who is a leader in making Facebook advertising easy.

With this plugin, you can install the Facebook Pixel on your WordPress site in a few minutes so check it out.

Hope you find these tools useful and let me know in the comments how you get on if you decide to use them.

I hope you enjoy this post and please share with your community.   If you want to learn how to craft a proper blogging strategy then read my post here

How to drive more visitors to your website?

How to drive more visitors to your website?

So you want to know how to drive more visitors to your website.

I get it.  we all want people to come to our website and hopefully, they will be inspired to subscribe to our blog or download something they find valuable.

In return, you have got their e-mail address in order to communicate with them directly so you can email them that your new blog post is now live etc

However, getting email addresses is a lot trickier these days as a lot of people don’t want to be bombarded with more emails, and are more discerning whom they give their information too.

A nice tool to give your website visitors another option to be notified when you have something new on your site is Subscribers.

Subscribers will allow you to drive more traffic by way of push notifications via your website and it is free.

If you code you can add the supplied code to your site or even easier download the WordPress plugin.

Check it out. It looks very slick & very easy to set up.

I am testing it on my site and it will be interesting to see the results.

I hope you enjoy this post and please share with your community.  If you want a colour of other handy tools and what I think is the best exit intent pop-up read my post here.

The best exit intent pop up for your business

The best exit intent pop up for your business

I just wanted to share a couple of handy tools that I have started to use. The first is my favourite exit intent pop up.

Exit intent pop up

This is what I believe is the best exit intent pop up for your business that is a WordPress plugin called Poptin.

Now I will be the first to admit that I am not a big fan of pop-ups. I find them annoying and intrusive and I don’t have them on my site except for one.

When someone is about the leave my website I use the exit intent function of Poptin to offer something the leaving visitor may find of interest.

Of all the exit intents I have tested, not only is this free, but it’s very easy to use and you can have an exit intent pop-up set up in minutes integrated with your email provider.

 

Colour code Tool

My second tool is a site called colour code picker.

This website comes in very handy when you are trying to identify the Pantone and hex colour codes from an image.

For example. If you are bringing an image into Canva & you have to place it on a white background to make it fit. By getting the Pantone of the image colour it will allow you to change the Pantone of the white background to give the appearance that the image was the perfect fit.

I hope you enjoy this post and please share with your community.  If you want to learn about an excellent tool that can drive some new website traffic for you check out my post here.
