February 9th, 2011 3 comments

Video is becoming ubiquitous on the Web. In fact, web users are beginning to expect it in many situations. And since some 80% of home sales begin with research done online, it is in your best interest to know that you can do place video in your listings, too.

You can even post a video Press Release online, as here for the Great Southwest Home Show.

If you use a Content Management System (CMS), such as WordPress or Joomla!, it makes the job of inserting video into your website a whole lot easier, but it can be done with any website.

First, you need to create your video. If you have any number of devices from a camcorder, to a modern still camera, through an iPhone or Android smartphone, you are in business.

Using WordPress and Facebook as part of your marketing?

November 7th, 2010 No comments

If you use WordPress and Facebook to to market manufactured housing, there’s a plugin that can link the two together in a very helpful way.

Here at MHMSM.com, we use Disqus [discuss] to handle the comments on all of your blogs and it has been working out very well. Visitors to our blogs can login in once and be set to comment on any blog using the Disqus comment system.

I’ve always wanted a tighter association between my blog posts and my Facebook page. Now I have that chance because of a new WordPress plugin.

The Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin enables visitors who are logged in to Facebook to post comments to your WordPress content as they normally would. The comment then shows up on their Facebook page with a link back to your post. It also shows on their friends pages. Think what that might mean to your traffic!

Here is a recent blog post on BobStovall.com that shows the Facebook comments box on top of the Disqus comments box – yes, you can have both. Placement and other options can be set in the plugins admin screen.

Whether you use Disqus or not, the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin is a “must have” if you use Facebook and WordPress in your marketing strategy. And every local business should be using the combination of WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter if you are serious about using social media to bring you business.

If you are an Orange Cat customer, installation and configuration of the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin is just an email away. If you are not yet an Orange Cat customer, head over to OrangeCat.com – WordPress and Joomla! for Local Business and see what we can do for you. (HINT- We can install any plugin on your WordPress or Joomla! powered website.)

But most importantly, have the Facebook Comments for WordPress plugin installed on your website today and start taking advantage of this obvious tie-in.
