It’s been a while since I gave any instructions on anything so I thought I would start with something that I love. iMovie! A lot of us have migrated to the MAC platform (or MAC with windows running on Parallels), and that being the case, it’s opened the door for a lot of cool programs such as iMovie.
The nice thing about the MAC platform is that you practically can start using any of the software and not need any instructions at all. Well, with iMovie that’s true as well, however there are some cool functions that can assist you and make you look like a total pro. Have you heard of Picture in Picture? Totally rocks!
To use it you’ll need to go into the preferences in iMovie and turn on “Show Advanced Tools.”
See Example here:
Now you take the clip from the bottom row and drag it on top of where you want to put it and once you let go of your mouse, you’ll get a ton of options. (See below)
Choose Picture in Picture and then done – and your done! There are some other options that will make it refined, but you get the idea! Cool right!

Some have a long handle and some have buttons to push and some have dots that I drew on. But they are all different because I don’t want to be normal. I want to be different and make sure that each phone stands out.”
I just stared at her for a second. Then I thought for another second..”That’s my baby,” haha! But on a serious note, is your marketing plan too “normal?” And what is your definition of “normal?” Interesting right? We all know that in today’s market, we have to be innovative, we have to stand out. So how do you do it? You’ve got to remember how Continue reading
The joys of website analytics
How do you measure your progress on your website? Do you even measure it at all? When I began my website career I thought wow, I am a genius at this. I have a great design, people are constantly telling me how beautiful it is, and I am positive customers are visiting the site…Or are they?
If you aren’t Continue reading
When it comes to a website, sometimes the hardes part is not how to get them there, but how to keep them on your site longer than 2 minutes. Well, for me anyway. So, I thought I would share some techniques that have worked for me.
First things first
Your content should be the first thing you consider during a redesign. You need to make sure that you CALL THINGS WHAT THEY ARE!! Don’t use words like “surrogated-liner impact sealer” when its really just a door knob. If a search engine is trying to help a potential customer of yours find a door knob…do you think they will know your Continue reading
Let me start this conversation like this…”Do you want your company to be all over the internet with bad press or good press?” Testimonials are one of the most unique and fastest way to sell and brand your product.
