This past week: I looked at social media and how SMBs (Small Businesses) can take advantage of this new marketing phenomena. At the same time I tried to showcase some of the features YWD has for the SMB website and how it can connect with all these new things that keep on coming up.
The last episode from @PaulChato on YWD vs WP-> I'm sorry I hurt the feelings of that WordPress programmer
It is hard to compete with Word Press if the client can't get past the FREE part. When in reality Word Press is not all that free, just add to Word Press all the features YWD comes with for the monthly fee and YWD is the more competitive option. Not to mention, you don't need a programer nor a web developer to have a functional and unique looking business website.
Are you part of the 63%?-> 63% of B2B Companies Don't Generate Leads From Social Media
Don't feel bad if you are part of the 63%, many business owners have a hard time understanding how social media works. On the positive side, social media is not hard to learn and you could have an advantage over the 63%!

On YWD mobile can be both separate and the same-> Mobile SEO Separate From Responsive Web Design
It is recommended that your business website be different on a mobile device, on YWD we agree with this philosophy. A person while browsing your website on their phone won't want to see all of your website in mobile format. They are on the go and want specific information easy to get from their phone. YWD makes it very easy and you can manage both mobile and desktop version through the same interface, you can even share the same conten for both. See how is done: YWD Mobile

YWD has an account on Pinterest: pinterest.com/therealywd. We find it difficult to find what graphics to share, my feeling is that your business (whether is B2B or B2c) has to have good imagery to share on Pinterest. It always comes down to good content , that is what gets shared.
