A pleasing color scheme can make or break your website. After all, in advertising, color accounts for 60% of advertisement's acceptance or rejection. Therefore, color plays a pivotal role in determining whether or not a potential customer will choose to conduct business with your firm. A web designer needs to ensure that all of your website’s colors work in harmony, while keeping the client’s identity consistent with other marketing efforts.
Quick Rules of Thumb
Stick to 3 to 5 colors when planning a website
When in doubt, use white for the background color, and black for the text color
Using Your Company’s Logo colors
If your company already has a logo designed by a professional – great!
This is the best starting point for choosing your website’s color combination. You may choose to use the exact colors found in your logo, or even add some complimentary colors. But, it is important not to stray too far from your logo’s color scheme in order to keep your company’s identity consistent.
Color Defines Mood
The colors of your website are important because they can elicit different emotions from your visitors. Colors can make us happy, excited, angry or sad. Below is a list of colors along with the corresponding moods which they evoke:
Brown: utility, earthiness, woodiness, subtle richness
White: purity, truthfulness, being contemporary and refined
Gray: somberness, authority, corporate mentality
Black: seriousness, distinctiveness, boldness, being classic
Choosing a Color Scheme
Once you understand the colors and their connotations, the next step is to choose a color scheme for your website. Below is list of different types of color combinations:
Monochromatic color combinations use a single color. Variations in lightness of the selected color can be used to create the sense of different colors. Monochromatic colors go well together, producing a soothing effect, and are very easy on the eyes. The drawback however, is that, it can be difficult to highlight the most important elements on your website.
Analogous color schemes use colors that are related, but not the identical, to create visually attractive combinations. Choosing this type of color scheme is accomplished by picking colors that are close to each other on the color wheel. For example, a selection of blues and purples, or reds and oranges would make a good analogous combination. One color must be picked as the dominant color while the others are used as accents.
Complementary (or contrasting) color schemes are comprised of 2 colors that are opposite each other on the color wheel. This combination is most appealing when a warm and a cool color are used. For example, red with green or blue work well as contrasting colors. Using one color for your background, and its complementary color to highlight key elements will give you color dominance and color contrast. One word of caution: it is difficult for the human eye to focus on contrasting colors at the same time.
Therefore, it is best to avoid using strong contrasts for background and text colors.

Keyword management for better search engine results.
Research and analysis tracking allows for continuous improvement.
When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO) campaigns, choosing the right keywords is the most important step. Selecting the wrong keywords will lead to bad results so it pays to learn how to perform a strategic keyword analysis so you pick the right ones. Generally speaking your goal is to identify keywords with:
A) The highest search volume possible.
B) The lowest competition.
C) Those that accurately relate to your business.
High search volumes and high competition often go together (but not always… look for sweet spots!) Typically you're looking for low competition keywords that still have good search volumes. So long as the keyword relates to the content on your website your "bounce rate" will be low and the traffic will stick.
The Keyword Analysis tool is designed to help you keep track of your research results as you perform your strategic analysis. There are a variety of external tools and systems that are helpful in evaluating keywords, however the statistics tracked by this system are found using Alexa and the Google Keyword Planner.
This will multiply how many people actually FIND your blog! (Marketers pay from hundreds, to thousands of dollars every month for this service—you get it for FREE!)

5. WordPress Plugins by Markethive
When we set out to build Markethive, we recognized WordPress to be the world leader in Blogging platforms. We will never dispute that nor attempt to overcome or replace WordPress.
Our goal is to make WordPress better with our blogging platform and CMS enhancements. Case in point is our WordPress (Markethive) plugin(s). We have several but this plugin is designed to import and manage your content you produce on Markethive into your one or multiple WordPress blog(s). Without Markethive, to manage a (blog cloud) portfolio of many WordPress on multiple domains with unique content on each of them for different agendas and markets, especially with a moderate to large team of content producers becomes a literal nightmare.
Why WordPress Is The Best Website Platform
There are many different ways of creating a website, you can purchase industry standard software like Dreamweaver and take courses to understand how to use it, or you can use content management software such as WordPress that allows you to quickly and easily get a website live within minutes. This is one of the many reasons why WordPress is the best website platform for beginners and professionals alike.
With WordPress, you are getting a system that takes minutes to install on your server, and then access to thousands of free and paid themes. Your website will look professional from the moment you start. Furthermore, there’s a wide range of plugins and widgets that can easily be applied to the site to make it more user friendly and interactive.
And the only skills you need are the ability to write, click the mouse button and add this stuff in. It really is easy to add content, it’s just like posting on a forum really, and has a very low learning curve. But, because of its flexibility, you can be as basic or advanced as you feel, and as you grow to learn more about it, so to will your site grow and utilize new concepts and designs being created for WordPress.
Here’s some other great aspects about the WordPress system:
WordPress is Open Source:
This means it is free, other people can easily create themes, plugins and so on for you to use with it, and it is completely flexible.
WordPress is Quick to Setup:
This means you can focus on having several websites and easily be able to maintain them all without having to create them all from scratch. This is particularly useful if you are getting into internet marketing for example. You can have many websites set up for different products you are selling.
WordPress Gives Multi User Functionality:
Are you a small business or organization that requires more than one person to add content to the site? Again, WordPress can help. It enables the site owner to set up users for them to post to the site. What’s more, certain privileges can be applied to these users so they only have access to posting content, and therefore not be able to mess around with the functional side of the site.
Website and Blog All-in-One:
Although WordPress is set up more as a blogging platform, it is still very easy to configure it to be a standalone site, with a blog attached. There are many plugins which make this even easier to do, and so any small business or organization can have a website and blog created in a couple of hours that looks great, and is ready to go.
Backing Up and Security:
WordPress is very easy to back up, and there are many secure plugins to choose from to make it more secure than it already is.
These are just a few of the most important reasons why WordPress is the best website platform, but there are many more. It’s major advantages are the low learning curve, and speed of having a site up and running. If you are a person who needs a website, but has little time and money to set one up, then WordPress is your friend. It’s a fantastic system used by millions of people across the globe.
6. MH Blog Swipe
Markethive blog system allows you to make your content available to the entire public population within Markethive, or Just to your friends or just to members in all the Groups you belong or a selection of them or just one (your choice) or private so no one can Swipe your blog.
Why? There are many sound reasons for this.
Curating: Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. Markethive offers features to it’s groups you create. Groups are platforms for blogging.Simple set up a Curating Group for yourself and Swipe the blogs in Markethive as a collection of content you may want to use in your publications.
Proofing: You may have a group of members that want to edit and rewrite your content. Trust me,this is an active phenomena in Markethive. Produce a blog and you will get many critiques so I just offer to them to swipe it, edit and change it as they see fit then let me know. If I like it, I swipe it back. Another option is to actually have a proof reader on staff and do the same procedure.
Cocktails: With Markethive’s ability (feature) to create unlimited Groups each with a different cocktail of content curated, aggregated or from multiple Group memberships, the options to produce unique content for unlimited WordPress blogs controlled from within Markethive is unlimited.
Then there is the learning curve. I have personally mentored newbie bloggers who just couldn’t or wouldn’t take the first step. In many a live webinar, I would quickly assemble a viable blog article, the instruct the students to Swipe my blog post, then in the webinar they would edit, alter, upload and download images, creating an altered blog result of their own.
I have witnessed new bloggers after this type of training go from poorly and rarely produced blog posts, to 1-2 dynamic and excellent on topic blog posts daily. In other words, Markethive is now churning out a new breed of excellent and dynamic bloggers.

It is undeniable that social media activities are big reasons for any business to succeed. In fact, it’s such a powerful trend that many businesses opt to focus their efforts on Twitter, Facebook and any upcoming social site such as MarketHive. I will tell you more about MarketHive at the end of the article.
But it’s a fact that blogging and having a business website blog is something that will be here for a long time. Compared to social media, having a business blog is like having that face or person behind your product or service.
More so, it makes any business stand out from among the competitors, particularly if your blogs are geared at providing expert information and interesting facts about your industry!
So what are the essentials of business blog that is reaping success so far? There’s a few out there which we could call big fishes, and they have been around for years. But it doesn’t mean that these business blogs aren’t poured with hard work.
In fact, a lot of passion and hard work has been put into each, and so they have survived the different challenges of staying relevant amid the changing modes of marketing.
Most of these blogs made it big and stood out over time because of being an authority. This, the first essential to a successful business blog, is all about being a go-to resource for all the pertinent information in one’s industry.
It would also mean that all the information and updates about the field, you post about it and share your thoughts and opinion. It also means that people consider your expertise above others as well.
Another important aspect of a successful blog would be minding the readers over Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Of course, ranking good with Google is important, but it decimates the human value of what you would write if SEO is prioritized over readers.
Remember that search engines are not your clients and targeted market. It only helps you find more customers who would buy your stuff or hire your service. So it is essential that you focus on people – or in other words, optimize first for people, readers, clients and customers.
What you must do then to achieve successful blogging about your business is to create highly relevant and fresh content.
Focus on ensuring content that is interesting and appealing to readers. By that, it is simple to say that content is king and thus rules over the success of any blog.
Now let’s look at how social media trends could also help out in any business blog’s success. Anyone could readily be active on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest.
But it matters that there is genuine and increasing interaction in your blog and its presence on these social networks. Icons will be there, easy in fact to get into your website. But there’s more to having social media buttons – you must really interact with followers and engage with connections to get your blog optimized.
And it doesn’t stop there with social networking because there is other equally busy avenues which you could tap for your business blog’s success.
It could be providing readers and visitors the option to subscribe, opt in and make purchases as well. More so, don’t discount the power of commenting and taking time to respond to comments.
These are all valuable social metrics that could propel your blog to the top. Make sure you focus on these on page and off page marketing techniques so that your business blog will surely live long.

Mobile marketing is used by companies to advertise across mobile devices such as cell phones and portable media players. Methods of mobile marketing that companies use can be something simple like a visual ad or something a bit more complex such as a QR codes. (QR stands for Quick Response).To decide which mobile marketing method is best for your company, use the following tips.
Compared with online campaigns that include social networking sites, homepages, and email lists, many companies neglect to actively promote and develop their mobile marketing platforms.
The mobile marketing aspect should be given equal emphasis and weight as other approaches. After all, users carry their phones within arm's reach during practically all waking hours. Computers? Not so much.
To make sure every customer can get the most out of your ads, test them on a variety of devices. What looks good on one kind of phone might not look good on a different kind of device. Ask friends and your co-workers to test out your ads for you so that you can confirm they look great on every device.
Try using QR codes in your mobile marketing. QR stands for 'quick response', and the codes themselves are similar to bar codes. They can be scanned by most mobile devices on the market to reveal a message. QR codes are an excellent way to build interactive and engaging mobile campaigns with your targeted audience. Link the code to a special offer, discount or giveaway message to create real buzz for your brand!
The old rules of telephone marketing also apply to mobile marketing. A telephone call from a sales person during dinner time is one of the quickest ways to lose a sale and a customer. Time your marketing messages for mid-morning to early-afternoon. Do not send messages in the middle of the night or at dinner time.
Make your website easily navigable on your mobile devices. While you may know your site works for larger computers and tablets, you need to be sure it will work for mobile phones as well. Test it using your own mobile device to see how it handles, and make any necessary changes.
Be very aware of the market conditions around you when mobile marketing. If anything changes that you're not absolutely prepared for, you can easily be left behind and lose a lot of business. The internet is constantly changing. Always stay prepared for change.
If you have multiple people working in your business on mobile marketing, it is important for each person to understand the plans and goals behind your company, so that everyone is working on the same page. Your team should be knowledgeable enough not to put your business in a bind, should a customer ask a question.

JAQX, headquartered in Connecticut USA was founded in 2016 with a vision of setting a new standard in the network marketing profession in a brand new category. The company is a result of the industry's constant reluctance to change its business model and be more customer friendly.
JAQX is the only smart home and business automation company with security that operates totally in the network marketing business space. JAQX allows you to completely control your entire home or business from a single app on your smartphone or tablet, and has created the only home and business automation system with expandability at no cost to the consumer.
JAQX is the brain child of Fred Stevens and Tommy Wyatt who have a long history in network marketing and are dedicated to correcting the many flaws in the industry. Their goal is to provide a platform for distributors to create residual income without having to break the bank joining a company. They wanted to create a company that enabled their distributors to be able to join at no cost and have the ability to create wealth without interference from a company's whims of change.
Tommy Wyatt was quoted in a recent article:
"Wyatt, known for his national best-selling book, “Appreciation Marketing,” insists on a culture built on honesty and integrity. “That’s what I’ve always stood for, and its non-negotiable,” he said. “When I was introduced to this profession in 1998, I internalized the idea that the average person could win with a part-time effort and that those willing to work hard could earn a lucrative full-time living in 3-5 years. My goal is to see that promise fulfilled.”
“At first I wasn’t interested at all,” said Wyatt, “but when I thought about the ability to create the comp plan, create the marketing plan, and most-importantly create the culture, I just couldn’t sleep. And when presented with a chance to do it in a booming industry that hadn’t yet met network marketing, it really made sense. I was all-in.”
That industry, “smart home automation” has been controlled, to this point, primarily by security companies like ADT and Vivint with the wireless and cable companies right on their heels, but still only one-in-one hundred homes in the US, is a smart home. “We realized that network marketing was the answer,” Wyatt explains.
“New technology is intimidating and perceived as expensive. But when your friend or family member shows you how to run your entire house from a single app on your phone, and shows you how affordable it can be, the cool-factor takes over and intimidation is gone.”
“Being on the corporate side offers me a lot of new challenges I wasn’t expecting,” Wyatt concludes. “But there’s a thrill about waking up every day and realizing that we’re on the front end of a coming trend and, most importantly, we’re first!”
JAQX will be the gold standard for network marketing, setting the bar higher than any other company. With the focus on revenue from customers, and a no cost point of entry for distributors, everyone is on a level playing field.

FBI warns automakers, owners about vehicle hacking risks
Friday, 18 Mar 2016 | 6:22 AM ET
The FBI and U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued a bulletin Thursday warning that motor vehicles are "increasingly vulnerable" to hacking.
"The FBI and NHTSA are warning the general public and manufacturers — of vehicles, vehicle components, and aftermarket devices — to maintain awareness of potential issues and cybersecurity threats related to connected vehicle technologies in modern vehicles," the agencies said in the bulletin.
In July 2015, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recalled 1.4 million U.S. vehicles to install software after a magazine report raised concerns about hacking, the first action of its kind for the auto industry.
Also last year, General Motors issued a security update for a smartphone app that could have allowed a hacker to take control of some functions of a plug-in hybrid electric Chevrolet Volt, like starting the engine and unlocking the doors.
In January 2015, BMW said it had fixed a security flaw that could have allowed up to 2.2 million vehicles to have doors remotely opened by hackers.
"While not all hacking incidents may result in a risk to safety – such as an attacker taking control of a vehicle — it is important that consumers take appropriate steps to minimize risk," the FBI bulletin said Thursday.
NHTSA Administrator Mark Rosekind told reporters in July 2015 that automakers must move fast to address hacking issues.
House Speaker Paul Ryan said Thursday it’s looking “more likely” the Republican Party will face an open convention in July – meaning, a floor fight to pick a nominee – and that Donald Trump and the party might want to accept that “reality.”
Ryan discussed the possibility with reporters as he noted he’s the chairman of the convention and will have to “bone up on all the rules.” He openly acknowledged that – even as Trump puts away another round of primary victories – a convention where no candidate has reached the necessary 1,237 delegates could actually happen this year.
“Nothing has changed other than the perception that this is more likely to become an open convention than we thought before,” Ryan said. “So, we're getting our minds around the idea that this could very well become a reality, and therefore those of us who are involved in the convention need to respect that.”
He said his role as speaker is to be “dispassionate and to be Switzerland,” and ensure that delegates abide by the rules in making their decisions
