You would not believe how important it is to optimise your images. I just saved 77.5% of one site’s total image filesize, without blinking.

Today is a public holiday, and I’m working,
Clearly I am not “public”. 🙂
Top tip for personal brand sites (if they’re based around freelancing or finding work), stick the contents of your CV up as plain text. It’s SEO gold.
One of the people I made a personal brand for last year was Julie Smith, who runs meditation courses. She just had me overhaul the structure of her site.
So the design hasn’t changed (and had very little to do with me, sure I made it but the job was outsourced to me by a template-company) but the site map, information architecture etc. has been redone in key places.
“Sure, I’ll download that directory for you and take a look”.
7,000 tiny .html files later. FTP doesn’t do individual files well!
And now, to action!
I start each day by spending an hour pimping out my online presence (among replying to emails, and getting ready for the day). It’s totally worth it, but also not nearly enough!
Honestly, there’s so much I could be doing. I love it.
I’m putting a new, exciting hourlie up on PeoplePerHour, basically it’s a way for people to carry around (and give away) a local copy of their website! Marketing to the max.
The link to my PPH profile is, http://pph.me/peter – the link to the hourlie will follow shortly.
If there is one thing I’ve learned from using Facebook Pages (and I’ve learned a LOT) it’s that original content is key.
Simply sharing other people’s content isn’t good enough–it makes you look like a follower, not a leader.
In terms of numbers, I reach about five times more people with my own writing than I do sharing others’ links.
SHARE THIS and help me prove my point. 😉
