week 4 pt 1

Good afternoon friends,
This week post is about websites I dislike, like, and why. First I went to http://www.pennyjuice.com/

  •  identify at least three potential problems for visitors
  1. Their background image of two children ( a boy and a girl) are really close up and an image that many scare off customers.
  2. Too much color it might be over-whelming.
  3. Too much images that take away from the words (meaning of the site).
Then I went to http://www.headhunterhairstyling.com/
  1. The home page is plain not enough information.
  2. The home page's images are on a slide and, it moves too fast.
  3. There is not enough social image outlets so the customers can add feedback.
  • What could be improved on these websites and why would these improvements help
http://www.pennyjuice.com/
  • change the background image on the home back to not creep out the customers
  • spread out the images and color though out the website, to not lose the meaning of the website
  • add an area for games to entrain your target audience (kids) but don't forget the adults
  
http://www.headhunterhairstyling.com/
  • add some entertainment for your target audience ( women) on the home page such as information, images, or  games to show the importance beauty treatment has on women.
  • change the images on slide show on, the home page spread them out through out the home page to better allow to the customer to embrace the images.
  • add an another social media outlet to better reach more customers or just add area for customers to leave feedback on the website. 
I then looked at apple.com to see what they did right on their website. 
They did a good job on their website by promoting their line of products and giving well informed information on them.
Their design, aesthetic, and branding impacted my reaction to their website by showing me a well professional website looks like. 
Finally,  I looked at Toyota.com, this is what I observed.
This website has many options for the customer to better be served.
Their design, aesthetic, and branding impacted my reaction by impressing me on the   how they show case they line of products and services they offer.


Sincerely,  Jesus  E. Origel

              6. I found out  Twitter works well for AT&T since, their twitter account is the first and recently used out of all their social media outlets. Also, AT&T using a wide range of social media outlets to better business.







              1. Business name:   Stater bros.
              2. Website url:  http://www.staterbros.com/
              3. https://twitter.com/staterbrosmkts    https://www.facebook.com/StaterBrosMarkets   https://www.pinterest.com/staterbros/
              4. Only Facebook and pinterest are in used
              5. last post: pinterest:  February 5       Facebook: February 8
              6. All in all, I found out, Stater bros. does not like to use their Twitter account, it does not work for them. But, Facebook seem to work well for them, since its used often.


              1. Business name: Men's wear house
              2. Website url:     https://www.menswearhouse.com/?utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=MWR-Brand_Exact&utm_term=man%20warehouse%21401%211444863&utm_content=12758026966
              3. https://twitter.com/menswearhouse   https://www.facebook.com/MensWearhouse/  https://www.instagram.com/MensWearhouse/  https://www.youtube.com/user/MensWearhouse  https://www.pinterest.com/mwtuxedo/
              4. All of their social media accounts are well used and used often
              5. last post: Facebook: February 9    twitter: February 9   Instagram: February 9   YouTube: January: 20  Pinterest:  February 5   
              6. So, I found out that Men's Warehouse prefers to use Twitter since, their twitter account is the first and recently used out of all their social media outlets. On the other hand YouTube is their last used account since, YouTube is more for videos and is less for business. 


              To sum up here, I learned all social media outlets work well for business if the business updates them with posts. Giving some social media outlets work more well then others, businesses find that out by checking the demand of that social media platform in question.
               
              For example,  Twitter is a widely used social media outlet, giving it popularly. Also, many Businesses  use Twitter, it works well. Many Businesses found out to bring in more consumers you need to follow the money, meaning use the most used social media site. However, some businesses like Stater Bros. choose not to use their Twitter account, for whatever reason.

              You Tube is not well for business use, since few businesses update it. Other business don't even use You Tube, but giving it popularly maybe they should.


              Also, I commented on three classmates posts:
              Caradonna_Maxim
              Rodriguez_Marc

              Week 3 part 1

              Good afternoon everyone,
              Have you ever experienced difficulty communicating with a business?  Many people have, including myself. Everyone handles that problem in different ways right or wrong, but now with social media at our deposal things are different.




              Does social media make it easier to get noticed or get your problem solved?  With Social media consumers can get noticed sooner, but the problem still needs attention via over the phone or in person for better results.




              Have you ever had a positive experience communicating with a business through social media?  Many people have, but I can't think of any experience communicating with a business through social media. I prefer to handle business matters over the phone or in person, since I find this method or professional. I can image how time-saving  communicating with a business through social media can be.






              If it was your own business on social media, how would you respond to positive or negative comments? I love being professional so I would welcome and thank the consumer for sharing their comment. Then I would agree or respectfully disagree and follow up with a reason why. Do my best to allow the consumer to feel comfortable to keep voicing they opinion again.




              Many people have had many negative or positive experience communicating with a business through social media, I can only image. Since I don't use social media for business communication, yet I can see the pros and cons of that. Communicating with a business via social media can be time-saving, efficient, and even less stressful. But a negative experience can lead to loss of consumers. Hope people can agree with me on this, or even share your experiences. Like always I welcome your feedback.




              Sincerely. Jesus E. Origel

              Week 2: Overview of Social Media CSIT 155

              Hello friends,


              Welcome back to anther post of mine, hope all my viewers enjoy reading this post as well. In this  post I will discuss my opinion on all social medial platforms with regard to the betterment of personal use, or business use or even both.




              Facebook and Instagram are the largest social media outlets, with many members all around the world. Many Facebook and Instagram members are active members. so much so Facebook and or Instagram is apart of their daily life. On the other hand, other members choose to get on Facebook and or Instagram once in a while out of boredom. However, almost all Facebook and Instagram members log on simply for the social aspects of it. Thus, it is safe to say Facebook and Instagram seem more geared towards personal use.


              To talk about the business aspect of social media, Twitter and LinkedIn come to mine. Both are manly used to promote a business somehow either through words, pictures, or merchandise. Both are known as a business platforms with their members conducting business using social media.




              All social media outlet you use, remember that platform can and should be used for both personal used and to conduct business. For instance, Facebook first was used to stay in touch with family and friends and make new friends. Nevertheless, every business is about saving money and bringing in more income for the business. Therefore, it makes sense why and how business works well in every social medial outlet.


              Thanks for reading friends, hope you agree if not at least understand my point of view on this subject. Until next time friends .


              Sincerely,
              Your friend,
              Jesus E. Origel

              Hello everyone,
              My name is Jesus E. Origel, born and raised in Oceanside, CA. Also I'm currently working while I Attend college. I'm writing today about my choice in template for my first blog. I also added a background and a picture to my first blog.

              My choice of template for this blog was called simple, I picked it to because it seemed straight to the point with not a lot of pictures nor colors to take my viewers away from the actual meaning my post. For the background I picked a money background, to show my interest in money. Lastly, I added a personal image of my book shelf. the image of my bookshelf sows my love of reading book and on-going passion of knowledge.
              I look for to publish more up-coming posts, as soon as my time allows. Thank you to all my views and supporters.Until next time friends!
