Zillow is a platform that allows you to monitor property values as well as property for purchase.
Zillow has an app along with a full functioning website. This is more useful than other platforms cause it seems to have more accurate and up to date information. Zillow has developed a good layout for how they have there maps set up. There map allows you to break down many factors when it comes to looking at properties and areas. Another bonus to this platform is that its multi facetted and can be used for buyers, seller, and investors. I keep coming back to this site because it has helped me with the process of moving multiple times. One things that I feel like they could change is ther…

Week 4A: Aesthetics, Design and Branding

In 2019, image is everything. It is not only how you present yourself to the world but also how the world views your worth. While this is ridiculous and leads to unnecessary vanity, it is reality and it is important to put the best version of one’s self out there for other people to see. The place where all of this advertising exists is the Internet and on it is a wide spectrum of personal content that can either be good, bad or ugly.
One of the websites that falls under the ugly category is “gatesnfences.com”. One of the worst parts of it that sticks out the most is the name itself “Gates N Fences”. It is generic and does nothing to grab the visitor’s attention or cling to memory. The next problem is that although there is contrast throughout the website it’s more abrasive than attracting. Lastly is that the website is hard to navigate because of the disorganized categories on the left side of the page. In order to fix this website, it would almost need to be completely redone. If …

Week 3B:

Skin by Winnie https://skinbywinnie.glossgenius.com Skin by Winnie is the name of my esthetician’s business, which I mentioned in my last blog post. Jessica (my esthetician) has opted out of the traditional website and gone for a more minimalist approach. Jessica has a website,but not exactly what you'd imagine, her website is extremely simplistic and maine focus is on booking and contact. The majority of her business is promoted through Instagram. Jessica’s Instagram has a link to her website along with tabs for reviews. I really love the way she has her Instagram page layed out, its practical and has a great aesthetically appealing flow to it. Her last post was a week ago, but post on her story almost everyday.  La Lady Nails               @laladynails  La Lady Nails is a specialized nail salon that I currently follow on Instagram. Similar to Skin by Winnie’s  business managing techniques, the majority of her promotion is done on Instagram. Riley Miranda is the owner of La Lady nails…

Week 3A: Communication Between Businesses and Customers

We are currently at a point of no return; social media will be with us for the rest for all of our lives. As social media expands so does its possibilities. The endless possibilities that come along with today's social media are not limited to just personally use, with this expansion come opportunity for business.  We all are aware of just how rapidly social media is expanding, but the question begging to be asked is,Is it beneficial to the consumer? Does social media make it easier to get noticed or have your problem solved? To be honest with you all, this truly depends on the company or business you are using. I’d like to think for the most part social media doesmaked it easier for your problem to be solved. I feel like when a business has a public platform such as a social media account there is some room for transparency. Most companies rely on the imagine and relationship they build with their customers, so it's important for them to keep up appearances. When it comes to do…

Week 2A: Overview of Social Media

Nowadays we have so much variety when it comes to what we choose to expose ourselves to on the internet and on a daily basis, those options are expanding. By being in the midst of this ever expanding digital age, there are so many options on how to create our online imagine. When it comes to social media specifically, we have options like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and so many other random platforms in between. We have to ask ourselves what our goal is and what we want to get out of our experience on social media. Some options are going to be a better fit when it comes to personal use and others are going to be better for business.
  Each of the sites previously mentioned are geared towards personal use, but each one of them has their own vibe.  For starters, Facebook is a site where we are able to keep our family in our online loop, but at an arm's length. I’m sure each one of you has an aunt that has posted on your timeline as if she were private messaging you. I…
