My next Project was to take some marketing advice from well-known Ryan Deiss, speaking at the Traffic & Conversion Summit Days 2017. 

This is the storyline:

To get ahead, you need to spend the bulk of your time focusing on your job, not on all the distractions that pull you into many, many different directions.

Firstly I made a whiteboard animation using captions at the bottom. When I posted it to Facebook the sound is turned off by default so captions are used to let people know what the story is. Here’s the link to my facebook post. https://www.facebook.com/trishfin/videos/10154584401888634/

Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. They celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. 
Kiva Loan for a Shoe Business

By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. For some, it’s a matter of survival, for others it’s the fuel for a life-long ambition.

Vava Coffee, is taking the coffee industry by storm. Upon learning that coffee farmers in Kenya earn less than 35% of the international market value on their high-quality coffee because of their lack of access to better markets and limited knowledge of the quality of their product, Vava set out to shake things up. Get the full ‘scoop’ on how her Kiva loan has allowed her to grow her business and improve the lives of 30,000 farmers in innovative ways

It is well worth having your WordPress installation on auto-update.

I got caught out still having Ver 4.7.1 for a week after version 4.7.2 came out, and my site was breached twice, firstly with an unauthorized post about weight loss and then by a Bala Sniper Hack. WordPress 4.7.1 and other recent earlier versions turned out to have several security issues that allowed unauthorized access.

Luckily I have my site monitored by Securi, so was made aware of the breach immediately and took action to fix the problem. At present I’m only using the free version but have in the past used their paid services to restore the site from a very corrupt state. Being semi-retired now and keeping costs down, I’m only using their monitoring services but that is tremendously useful – to be advised immediately your site has a problem gives you a good chance of preventing a major attack.

There are of course many other ways to secure your sites and I’m going to talk about it a bit more in the near future.

I was recently contacted by Kathleen Carter from http://educatorlabs.org/who has put together a collection of resources for seniors and the various challenges we face as we grow older.

.

I hope this will be of value to any seniors among my readers or those who are carers for someone with a disability or other health problem.
