Why you should diversify your social media presence

Posted by on December 27th, 2021

A couple of months ago, something funny happened. Facebook went down. Along with it went a vast network of carefully honed and widely spread social media services, including Instagram and WhatsApp. What actually happened to bring down the social media giant was kind of a small blunder of astronomical proportions, with far reaching consequences that left the network down for almost a full day. Funny to some, it was actually massively detrimental to others — people looking to run sales, or announce products on social media. For a lot of business owners, it was a massive wake-up call: don’t put…

The Wild World of Stock Photography

Posted by on November 29th, 2021

Throughout my travels in ghost writing, webpage building, and social media managing, I often find a need to use stock images, or creative commons images to use beside text copy. Generally, the world of stock photography is infinite; you can pretty much find anything you’re looking for when you go on iStock or otherwise. But… Sometimes you find a lot of weird stuff too. Things that you don’t imagine you could ever really quite use, things that are strange, things that are “out there” enough. That’s what this post is dedicated to. Be forewarned, one or two of these images…

The Pros & Cons of Building a WordPress Website

Posted by on October 25th, 2021

When it comes to building a website for your business or brand, little matches the versatility of building on the WordPress CMS. Used by some ridiculous percentage of the web (around 40%) from simple to complex websites, this CMS (Content Management System) is a go-to for many. With an open-source library boasting thousands of themes and plugins alike, why wouldn’t it be? Still, many people opt not to build in the WordPress CMS, and that’s okay too – WordPress is not for everyone. We’ll talk about the pros and cons of using WordPress to DIY your site and help you…

Please Welcome Client Relationship Manager Remy!

Posted by on October 4th, 2021

hasOptimization is pleased to welcome Remy Housley to the team! Remy (she or they) comes to us from the wilds of academia, where they’d started to feel a bit cramped. They bring to the team excellent communication skills, an abundance of smarts (they have a PhD in English, making them officially the most-degreed hasOptimization team member if I don’t miss my guess), and yet another cute dog for us to post on social media. Cute dogs aren’t a requirement to work here, but it helps. Keep an eye out for Skusha’s bat-eared face on our social media feeds–super adorable.

How does a domain transfer work?

Posted by on September 27th, 2021

People choose to move or transfer a domain for many reasons. A lot of those times, consolidation is the reason, given that having your domain in the same place as your host makes billing easier and less confusing. However, domain transfers can also occur when a company is sold, or a registrar is not living up to everything you thought they would be. Here’s how you can expect a domain transfer to work, and the steps needed for you to transfer a domain. This is a non-inclusive list and a general guide to what you can expect, not a how-to;…
