OpenSense Labs: Filling your Organization’s Traffic Canvas with the Colors of CRO.

Filling your Organization’s Traffic Canvas with the Colors of CRO. Vasundhra Sat, 02/09/2019 - 13:29

Ever attended an art gallery and witnessed how modern artists use canvas to speak their thoughts?

By looking at the art and paying attention to their creation a lot of “Ohhs” and “Ahhs” and expressions of awe with wonder tells us whether it has sufficiently aroused the engagement or not.

But at the core of this practice, the whole idea of thinking an endless number of ways in which visitors attend an art gallery always sustain in the mind of an owner. 

More visitors means more conversions, which results in better progression. 

Customer experience and engagement - 2 things thrived by every art gallery owner.

Right?


Today most marketing teams are structured to drive traffic towards websites that seek to generate traffic and hopefully even more profit. 

Yes, it might be an oversimplification of the trend, but that’s the standard marketing playbook. That’s where Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) comes in. 

But, What exactly is CRO?

Let's discover. 

Everything about CRO

In internet marketing, conversion optimization, or conversion rate optimization is a system for increasing the percentage of visitors to a website that converts into customers, or more generally, takes any desired action on a webpage. The whole process involves understanding how users move through a particular website, what actions they are taking, and what's stopping them from completing their goals. 
 


Importance of CRO 
  • Pay per click

The general idea of pay per click advertisement was that it targeted the audience fast by selecting options of what they could see. And you would agree on the fact that nowadays “pay per click” (Google Adwords) prices have hiked up to an extent where it is evident that it is directly affecting the conversions. Also with the increase in digital devices and people getting indulged in technology more businesses have become digital. 

  • Enhancing online competition 

Now that more people are becoming tech-savvy, competition among retailers has increased a lot. Some of them are simply eating away small retailers. That means if you want to convert your visitors into customers, you need to have a website that should be easy to use and easily customizable.  

You can take the help of Drupal as your website platform. It is one such CMS that allows you to set up your website easily and customize it as desired. 

Conversion Optimization has the benefit of allowing you to stay ahead of the curve in terms of competition, by providing you with insights on what's going on with the competitor's website.
  • Combating the rising cost of digital marketing

Let’s face it pay-per-click isn’t just the only thing which is rising in the market. Digital marketing in this area is giving good competition to any sort of “traffic source” ever known. 

The whole point of marketing is to direct the users towards your website.  But how would you make sure that most of them actually make a purchase?

This is where CRO comes to the rescue.

By increasing the number of page visitors who make purchases, CRO helps in improving the conversion rates by simply compacting the cost of digital marketing
  • Streamlining the business 

A website that is continuously being optimized looks more legitimate than the ones which are not doing that job. 

Why?

Well maybe due to the fact that the ones which are not being optimized are not providing a clearer path to the landing pages. Clear landing pages for an online retailer means having an inventory that can easily search or getting a clearer view of the categories. 

  • Saving a large amount of money 

So how can spending a large amount of money on your website result in saving money? 

You’ll find that spending less money on each customer would actually produce more money. Maybe you are not necessarily saving a lot, but you are definitely making a lot more. 

Which eventually balance out both. 

  • Improving the efficiency and layouts 

If you are working with an affiliate organization or the marketers, you would find out that many online retailers find CRO to be a good way to get news out about their products, through a platform that already has an engaged audience, CRO makes your website more valuable to your affiliates, and to any other marketing platforms.
When a higher number of users who click-through to your webpage actually makes a purchase, your affiliates, pay per click advertisers, social media marketing campaigns, etc., make more because you are making more.  

Common misconceptions related to CRO 

There are some businesses that see CRO be an unnecessary expense, an expense that doesn’t really move their business ahead.

Whereas most of them see it as a golden bolt for their marketing woes, a key for high traffic and more leads. 

Using it or not usually it is better than having misconceptions that lead to misguiding and wasting of resource and time. Among which some of them are:

  • CRO is a single skill 

One of the biggest misconceptions among business is an entrenched belief that CRO is a single skill set. In other words, CRO is a broad practice that encompasses a wide range of skills. To be effective at conversion rate optimization, you require three skill sets:

Copywriting: Whether you can write a persuasive copy or not would have a great impact on conversion rates.

Design: Starting from UI/UX to its choice in graphics depends highly on the rate of conversions.

Analytics: It is important to have someone with special and necessary skills to analyze your result. 

  • It is all about best practices

Running or stumbling upon blog posts and articles that tell you the best practices on boosting up your conversion rate has become standard now. 

And going ahead and implementing those practices as written on the write-ups is conventional. But do these tricks really work?

The truth is that there are no particular one-size-fit best practices that can lead you to the path of better conversions. Your focus should always be on removing barriers that hinder with the flow of conversions.  

  • Making small changes that lead to big and better rewards
     

 

The above pictures clearly describe that how changing the content length affected the conversions and resulted in 90% more clicks. 

Going by this case study, you might be tempted to find the silver bolt where making a minor change reaped into great news. 

In truth case studies like these are entirely misleading and provides you with only partial information. They don’t tell you that:

How long the tests were done?

Whether the traffic remained constant throughout the testing period?

What all changes were made on the website?

  • It is all about split testing 

Most people think that CRO is all about split testing site elements. 

The truth is that CRO is all about measuring your customer's actions and remove the convention barriers. 

To do this start by basic user needs and understanding the psychology of the customers. This model would help you to focus on the things that should be worked on:

 

  • Focusing on CRO alone builds a successful business 

Due to the immense love showered on CRO and per digital marketing, it is believed by the companies that they are winning the game of online business. 

True, that CRO might increase your conversion from 1% to 2%, which yes has a great impact on sales, but to reach those heights of success you need to take a closer look on traffic, brand, and customers. 

So What is the Structured Process in CRO?
  • Defining your conversion actions 

The conversion actions can be defined based on the business goals and then they can be implemented on web analytics. Promoting and producing content in one of the actions which should be implemented as soon as possible. The content technique would require you to do be indulged in practices like:

  1. Targeting email marketing
  2. Marketing automation 
  3. Producing demo
  4. Live events
  5. Case studies

The content at this stage revolves around customer-relationship management through segmentation. When you segment your audience based on age, gender, geographical position, professional role, etc., you are better equipped to offer them targeted content that interests them

  • Understand the prospects

A better understanding of the prospects helps in better converting of offers. This is the stage where you look for indirect customers acquisition and brand awareness.  Begin by mapping out the current situations and forming a clearer idea on your target audience, objectives, market, KPI’s and the current result. Knowing in advance that where you stand and what you want to achieve provides you with more context.

  • Research and Analytics

Once you have the insights into your current situation and objectives, it is the time for you to analyze them. In the analysis phase, you would want to employ web analytics and the other sources of information to form a hypothesis that can then be tested. It could include the heatmaps, tests, insights etc.

This would make sure that your insights are based on the actual behavior of the users and not on the basis of superstitions.

  • Implementing a challenger and Testing the hypothesis 

For implementing a good challenger you need to choose a suitable testing method and then run a test. It involves the turning up of backlogs and matrix into a measurement plan. This is one of the most crucial parts of CRO. 

Examining the hypothesis on basis of multiple tests results in a good number of visitors and websites. 

  • Validating 

After setting up and running the tests, you analyze the results. This generates insights that you then subsequently test. CRO is a continuous process of learning and refining. After setting up and running the test, you analyze the result. This then generates insights that can have a subsequent test. 

Testing for CRO 

Conversion Rate Optimization Test are the ones that refer to the various types of testing methodologies. They are used to identify the best possible version of a certain site that brings in the most valuable traffic.

  • Principles of CRO 

Speed

Back in 2009, Google conducted experiments which described that slowing down the search results page by under half a second resulted in 0.2% to 0.6% fewer searches.

These results now might not sound like big numbers, but for Google (which processed roughly 40,000 searches every second ) the number resulted in 14,400 fewer searches every minute and according to Google itself, people have become more impatient. Thus making speed an important factor
 
Singularity 
 
A single take away “Less is more” is just about right mantra which should be followed by every website owner. 
Many landing pages contain multiple offers.
 
They shouldn’t.
 
Why?
 
Having just one and improved campaign clicks help in increasing the conversion rates

Identification

Identifying your audience and their aspirations/desires mean high conversions. In other words - what they want, what matters to them, and what sources of frictions are for them all comes under the section of identification.  

To identify the people you must know them. After all the reason how sales and marketing would see those conversions is only when you identify your own customers. 

Landing Pages

Take an advise and do not clutter your pages or emails to “what if” moments. 

What if the user is to like my page?

What if more audience like the information that is being served on the page? 

What if they want to read my testimonials and case studies? 

If the goal of creating a particular page is to get likes and visitors to subscribe it, then all you should do it is focus on it. Thus, your landing pages should be as precise and simple as they could be. This gives a clearer idea to the audience and your customers on what you are selling. 

  • Testing Methods 

A/B testing

Businesses want visitors to take an action (conversion) on the website and the rate at which a website is able to drive, this is called its "conversion rate."

A/B testing is the practice of showing 2 variants of the same webpage to different segments of website visitors at the same time and comparing which variation drives more conversions. 
 
The one that gives higher conversions wins!
 
The metrics of conversion is different for every site. For commerce, it might be a sale product whereas for B2B it might generate qualified leads. A well planned, data-driven A/B testing makes your marketing plan more profitable by just narrowing it down to its most important elements by testing them and also by combining them. 

Note that every element on your website should influence visitor behavior and conversion rate should be A/B tested. 


Multivariate Tests 

In a multivariate test, you identify a few key areas/sections of a page and then create variations for those sections specifically (as opposed to creating variations of the whole page in an A/B split test). So for example, in a multivariate test, you choose to create different variations for 2 different sections: headline and image. A multivariate testing software will combine all these section specific variations to generate unique versions of the page to be tested and then simply split traffic amongst those versions.

Multivariate testing looks to provide the solution. You can change a title and an image at the same time. With multivariate tests, you test a hypothesis for which several variables are modified and determine which combination from among all possible solutions performed the best. If you create 3 different versions of 2 specific variables, you then have nine combinations in total (number of variants of the first variable X number of variants of the second). 

 
  • Some Testing tools 

Now we know that Conversion Rate Optimization (CRO) focuses on simple tests that allow you to compare and contrast layouts, call to action, a design feature, content and even personalized marketing feature to nudge your conversion rate into new.   

Therefore here are some wicked yet sweet CRO tools that would help you with the testing.

Optimizely: Optimizely tool requires a single line of lightweight code that can be added to any website. The user would then have the power to change any on-page elements on the website.

Google Analytics: Most of the website has this tool in-built on the platform. It is one of the most popular testing tools. Google Analytics tool would help you to split your traffic into two pages that you have developed and would let you know which version is best for testing. 
  
Visual web optimizer: This tool specifically helps in figuring out how your testing windows will be after you plug in a few variables. Visual web optimizer is great for the company project and client work. 

Adobe Target: Adobe target is a popular enterprise tool that combines the taste of targeting testing and personalization. It walks you through three step workflow where you first create a variant, then target a variant base and lastly customize your goals 

Appitmize: It is the testing tool that focuses entirely on mobile optimization and is a perfect choice for mobiles and business. It offers full control over the visual editor and rapidly creates new variants and targets. 

Conclusions 

Now we know that the most important goal for an organization is to create conversions. Creating conversions is the reason how you can measure your progress and growth. 

Opensense Labs is aware of the fact that how important it is to apprehend the visitor’s preferences and their interests. Therefore our services on Drupal personalization and CRO bundles us together to our clients and helps in accelerating the conversions.

OpenSense Labs: DeGov is here for all the Government websites

News from Planet Drupal - Fri, 02/08/2019 - 05:43
DeGov is here for all the Government websites Vasundhra Fri, 02/08/2019 - 11:13

Today, our interactions with the digital world have surpassed the human interactions so much that the need for the user interface to be appealing and friendly plays an important role in terms of progression. 

Government websites are no different.

The first connection which they have with their citizens is more likely to be an engaging website. One of the most essential tools for meeting the needs of your people or citizens. 

So, it has to be the best. Right?


Creating a functional website with easy navigation not only help officials do better in connecting with their constitutes but also ensures that the public stays well informed all the time. 

Drupal is one such platform which helps you achieve all of this in one go. 

How is Drupal in Government sector performing?  

Drupal is gaining popularity in government sector all over the world. The solidity and flexibility of the platform is the primary reason why the government is moving its online portals to Drupal. Government websites like the white house, Federal IT Spending Dashboard, Data govt. has specifically chosen Drupal for its efficiency. The reason why most of the govt. Websites are choosing Drupal over any other platform is also due to the facts that it is:

  • Secure

Drupal has an excellent track record when it comes to solving and maintaining security issues. The security team (Drupal Community) that works together with other councils watches and ensures that its users are getting the best security practices

The fact that The White House entrusts Drupal as its platform is enough to prove that it is highly secure CMS. There are several security modules that make it a highly reliable platform. Modules like:

Login Security: Drupal sites that are available in both, HTTP and HTTPs provides the user with a lockdown in the login page, and submits the other forms securely via HTTPS. Hence, it prevents passwords and other sensitive user data from being transmitted.

Password Policy: This module forces a user to forcefully create a strong and powerful password. 

Captcha: It is the response test which is specifically constructed for determining the user. To check whether the process is being done by a human and not by a robot.

Security Kit: It provides Drupal users with various security hardening options. This doesn’t let the website compromise the data and information to the hackers and other foreign users. Security Kit presents particular mitigation for cross-site request forgery, cross-site scripting, and clickjacking, among other issues.

Two-factor verification: The two-step verification is a procedure that implicates the two-step authentication method, which is performed one after another to verify the requesting access. 

 

  • Accessible

Government websites are those kinds which are used by everyone, and by everyone, I mean the visually impaired too. Each citizen should be able to access the government website quickly and seamlessly and according to WACG 2.0 (web content accessibility guidelines), every website should provide equal standards to all the people.
Drupal is one such platform which adheres to each and every WACG guidelines with its different modules and provides accessibility to everyone. 

Alt text: This is one of the most important modules when it comes to providing accessibility to a website. With this module, the search engine understands the text of an image or a page and screen readers read it loudly to the user.

Content accessibility: This module checks all the type of fields where the user can enter formatting. Below the content section of the accessibility page, the user is provided with the option to turn the tests on or off using the tab that would appear below the page. 

Accessibility in WYSIWYG: This type of module integrates the accessibility configuration with the WYSIWYG or CKEditor modules, which provide the user with a new button while they are editing the content that checks the work for accessibility issue. 
 

 

  • Economical

The government budget for software developments cannot be compared to the budget of large enterprises for the same purpose. The government needs to opt for a high-quality solution that does not cost a fortune. High development and maintenance costs may be considered as an obstacle to finding high-quality website solutions.

Thus, Drupal meets these and many other requirements are the reason why the government chose it as there CMS. The Drupal development price is relatively low when it is compared with other CMS in the market. 

  • Scalable

Another great feature of Drupal8 is its perfect scalability. The CMS is suitable for both small survey website as well as the content-rich websites with gigabyte information. 

At the same time, Drupal is capable of handling high traffic issues and problems. Web solution built on this tool is available even when the traffic volume jumps sky high. A great example of the same is UNESCO and CERN web channels. These Drupal-based websites offer a great user experience and thousands of people use it on daily basis. 

  • Easily Customized

When we say government websites we automatically imagine something grey, black, white or something really boring. But one has to remember that these website services both political and non- political purposes. Thus, user interaction and engagement then here becomes a crucial aspect. 

Better user engagement is made possible with Drupal and its modules. The administrator can add blogs, articles, write-ups that contributes highly opportunities and solutions. Not only this but Drupal also gives its user the power to personalize their website according to their needs and requirement, making it a flexible and reliable CMS. 

  • Has superb integration capabilities 

A powerful web solution should integrate seamlessly with third-party applications. Publishing tools, data repository, and other features belong to the list of necessary interactions. 

The integration capabilities offered by Drupal is enormous. It provides numerous options so that the user is able to integrate any type of third party service. 

Drupal Distribution: DeGov to the rescue 

DeGov is the first Drupal 8 open source distribution focussing entirely on the needs of the governmental organizations. It is intended to provide a comprehensive set of functionalities that are commonly used only of the applications that are related to government. 

What DeGov is not?

The DeGov distribution is not a commercial CMS ( developed as well as owned by a single company, and the users usually need to buy a license) and it is not a finalized product. Meaning, DeGov is not a ready solution. The reason is that there are a lot of functionalities and ideas in backlog and hence it is a daily work off process. 

DeGov is an idea to realize the benefits in the public sector with the idea of open source. 
  Use case related to DeGov

DeGov has 6 use cases and extends its valuable functions to meet certain scenarios. 

  • Publishes information for all the websites that are government based organizations of all level.
  • Service-oriented E-government portals, that closes the gaps between the users/ citizens and administrator.
  • Citizen engagement portals to decline and discuss online.
  • Open311 portal for civic issue tracking.
  • Open Data portal for publishing and creating communities data

Intranet and Extranet of government employees.

Beneath the Canopy of DeGov DeGov is the sub-profile of the lightning distribution. 

Lightning allows you to create sub-profiles that are entirely based on default lightening distribution profile. Creating a sub-profile enables you to customize the installation process to meet specific needs and requirements. 

By combining DeGov and lightening distribution, it delivers configuration that is specialized to start new projects. Building on top of Lightning, DeGov leverages in a true open source manner that allows focussing on functionalities for the public sector. 

Which problems does DeGov solve?

Editor 

DeGov solves the issues that are all related to complex backends, missing workflow, multi-language as a pain, missing modernity etc. It allows the editors with highest design flexibility in the maintenance of the website as well as simple editing of the content. 

With the help of “Drag and Drop” function, you can easily structure your page even without the help of programming. Predefined page type helps in easy maintenance. In the central media library, all types of media are managed no matter what form or type it is (pictures, PDFs, videos, posts)

DeGov distribution also helps in easy integrating of the social media. Likewise, you can allow the users to easily share the content in form of articles, blogs, and other write-ups. DeGov uses the privacy- compliant integration of social media share buttons. 

Customers and clients 

DeGov solves the issues that are related to the features and high ownership with old and propriety technologies.  It a user-friendly web front with attractive designs. It is responsive and thus adapts to any device and its size.  The use of HTML/CSS makes a website accessible. Likewise, the page can be made translated into several languages. A language switcher and an automatic screen reader translate the workflow easily. 

DeGov websites receive a powerful search function for the website content as well as the documents. This is particularly convenient for the authorities: The administrator search engine and NRW  that is connected to the service so that users can also search the content outside their area of responsibility. 

Companies and developers 

It solves the issue related to high-cost updates and the functionalities that are related to it. The distribution is based on opensource software, as a result, you pay neither for the license nor you purchase it.

Drupal is used in numerous projects thus the basic functions and the functionalities are constantly updated and expanded from time to time. This fixes all the bugs and vulnerabilities quickly. 

Implementations with DeGov

Websites

The DeGov distribution has the ability to release, federal and state portals, as well as internet sites for ministries, authorities, districts, and municipalities. The web pages and the target group-specific portals (or topic pages) can be created easily by DeGov. 

Participation Portals

With participation portals to let the citizens participate in decisions and proposed measures, DeGov distribution has opened doors in terms of communication. Here you can notify, discuss with users, gather valuable suggestions or create polls. From participatory budgeting through bills to constructing methods - portals obtained by DeGov give citizens as a voice.
 
E-Government Portals

DeGov distribution is a great way to implement entire eGovernment portals. Less stress is laid on the editorial content than whole specialist procedures. In this way, DeGov allows the digital processing of administrative processes. The project Gewerbe.NRW was implemented with the help of DeGov distribution.

Why DeGov with Drupal 8?

DeGov modules are Drupal modules which are carefully fit together. This means that the whole system benefits largely with its functionalities. The reasons why Drupal 8 should be with DeGov is because:

  • It is based on Symfony and it uses composers.
  • It is Git accessible for config files.
  • It is cloud-ready and runs like a modern PHP solution 

Better projects with DeGov

A case study on Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW

The new "Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW" has been providing citizen friendly services by allowing company founder in German federal state North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) to electorally register a business from home. Its main aim was to provide aid of a clearly arranged online form, commercial registration and that can be transmitted to responsible citizens.

In addition to the business registration, the portal provided with information to the topic “foundation of an enterprise”. Furthermost all the users had access to Einheitliche Ansprechpartner NRW. Also, the online service supported specialized staff in taking up a service occupation.

The portal was developed on the basis of the content management Drupal-based system DeGov and nrwGOV. They chose Drupal because of that fact that it was cost-effective and new technologies could be adapted to the Drupal community. Apart from this Drupal provided with:

  • Higher safety and better quality
  • Independence
  • Comprehensive option
  • Accessibility

The portal aimed at providing more flexibility to the entrepreneur that is eligible to start there own business by saving time through digitization. The electronic forwarding and processing of the application by authorities ensured effective processing within applications. The result was effective and user-friendly communication between the citizens and authorities. Whereas in the near future the Gewerbe-Service-Portal.NRW will develop a comprehensive service platform so that the administrative process could be carried out at home.

In the Nutshell 

So how important is the government website to you?

The answer might have been crystal clear by now. 

As important as it is to have a website, maintaining it a whole different task. Yes, Drupal is making it easy for you by its functionality and distribution.  But the definite art of maintaining it is as important as creating it.

[Request] Specific type of plugin for an Icecast server.

Talk about plugins - Fri, 02/08/2019 - 02:52

I run a radio server which uses Icecast and I'm looking for a plugin that I could use on my webserver which I use WordPress for. What I'd want is for the plugin to allow me to not only display the song that is currently streaming, but I really want a way for this plugin to display the last X songs played. For X it would be nice if it had a setting I could adjust so I could set it to 3, 5, 10, 15, etc and it would list the previous 3, 5, 10, 15 tracks that played. What would be an even greater bonus is if not only did it display the previous names of the tracks played, but also timestamped the time of day each track played.

Of course having a variable X number of tracks displayed would be perfect, I'd be happy with even a static set number of previous track names like only showed the names of last 5 tracks or so. And the time stamp of when each track name played would be an optional bonus also.

Of course maybe it uses the current theme to blend the plugin's display text on the site. But a bonus here would be the ability to adjust background/text color/font/size, but the variability again just optional.

It wouldn't need to have a web player built in as I do have a simple plugin that adds a web player to the page to stream from web or I also list the text link to the icecast stream. If it did have a web based player it'd be a bonus as I could ditch the current web player that only streams and doesn't display track playing much less a previous tracks played list.

I don't know how simple this would be and Ive hunted for something like this for WordPress and can't find anything.

If anyone knows of a 3rd party plugin that can do this I'd be appreciative. I do like "free" but something cheap I'm still interested.

maybe some site or perhaps a similar program that is simple enough perhaps I could modify it myself to use as a plugin or something.

Or if someone familiar with icecast on Linux and such could do a php or some other code that could take the icecast log and have it output only the last X number of tracks played as plain text that could be added into the site manually.

EXPERT Wordpress Problem Solver needed for advanced site fixes - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 22:48
Over time, sections of my website (dieharddevil.com) have gone missing. I believe this was due to plugin updates, but I really can't be sure.

As an example, the photos and videos section of the site suddenly became dead links. I've since removed those sections from the menu bar so that readers don't navigate to those empty pages. Note: I have confirmed that that content is, in fact, on my server.

In addition to the fixes needed above, I have set up a test site with a DIVI theme called "Extra" (from Elegant Themes).

Based on the ongoing problems with our current site that have occurred over time, I'd rather not simply transfer everything (along with those problems) over to what will become our new site. Instead, I plan to build that site from the ground up by uploading different types of content manually. I tried to import content from our active site to the new theme test site, and none of our several hundred blog posts, as an example, would transfer over.

Perhaps this is the result of things not being correctly configured on our server? These are the things I need assessed and fixed and can explain in more detail on an initial call.

CSS styling for existing wordpress site - Upwork

WordPress Work From UpWork - Thu, 02/07/2019 - 22:23
I have set up a wordpress site and it works well.
the site is hosted.
the url is set up and redirecting.
the functionality that I need is there.

however, it looks pretty poor and it is missing one thing - decent styling (i.e. CSS) to make the two important pages/themes look good
The home page and the blog page are the only 2 pages in the site and both really can be considered to be absent of styling/CSS

The domain is a website/blog which teaches acoustic guitar fingerpicking.
I have over 60 videos professional recorded in a real studio that help real beginners go from playing the first note to advanced fingerpicking - so this is fun stuff!

With the (video) content being so well designed (in terms of educational design) and so well recorded, it's a real shame that the site that presents is has literally no CSS/design and that's where you can come in and really help me to make the personality and appearance of this project take shape.

My mission is to help failed beginners who tried and failed to learn guitar to now finally learn because fingerpicking is easier to make sound good than strumming chords (a wild thrashing movement!). I have over 7 thousand online students and just need to create a blog destination where I can share little micro-lessons several times a month.

To be super clear on the mission. I will not ask for help with:
- setting up wordpress
- figuring out a site design
- getting hosting or a URL setup
- anything functional
- any theme related code

This gig is purely taking something awful looking - and helping me to find an identity through a look and feel that has a resonance with the tone/mission/emotions that the students dream of finally playing that guitar creatively is fun and within reach. I really need your help to communicate the feeling of this. And I'm grateful to push other projects your way if you can help me to get where I need to get to....

thanks,
patrick
