How to Get Notified When Someone Joins Your Newsletter

By Krista Smith / August 28, 2019

In this tech tutorial, I’m showing you how to enable the notifications in your Mailchimp account to ensure that you’re notified every time someone joins your newsletter.

How to Make Sure Your Mailchimp Images are Never Blurry

By Krista Smith / July 19, 2019

In today’s video tutorial, I’m tackling the issue of how to ensure the Images you add to Mailchimp never come through as blurry. In today’s world with the high resolution screens we have, it’s important to use retina rules where we can so our images come through crystal clear. In order to do that, we need to bring images in at 1200 px wide (by whataver height) and then go into the settings and constrain them, by 50% to ensure crisp photos! Sound hard? It isn’t. I promise.

How to Update Your WordPress Website

By Krista Smith / June 18, 2019

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had clients and students reach out and tell me how fearful they are to perform updates on their websites.

How to Hide Pinterest Graphics in Your Blog Posts

By Krista Smith / January 14, 2019

Pinterest is a visual social media tool that you can use to build a relationship with your audience when you add specific “pinnable” graphics that are hidden inside your WordPress blog posts. If you were to add them to the body of your blog post, they take up valuable real estate because they are so large and you run the risk of turning off your viewers because they have to scroll for so long before they can engage with your content again.

How to Get Facebook To Show the Image I Want When I Share My Website

By Krista Smith / July 17, 2018

It’s so frustrating when Facebook does not pull the image you want to show up alongside your blog post. I get it. I’ve been in exactly that situation many times. What’s usually happened is that I’ve added a featured image but then changed my mind and changed the photo out. SOMEHOW, Facebook found that original photo and it might seem like they’ll never forget about it! What really happens is that Facebook serves cached versions of our posts. What I mean is that they take a snapshot of the page (or post) and the images linked to it and they…

How to Create an Autoresponder for Your Facebook Business Page

By Krista Smith / February 7, 2018

One of my mastermind sisters expressed her frustration at a recent session that she has potential clients and customers try to communicate with her via her Facebook business page.
