How to Post

New-Post-snapshot

Adding or Editing Posts functions much the same as Pages, however there is some additional information you need to enter.

  1. You can change the presentation of your posts by setting up Format.
  2. You will also need to assign the post to a category which will affect where and when the post appears on the website.
  3. On the right hand side underneath the Categories module you can add Tags to your post. Tags are like keywords that visitors may use to search for related articles. For example, adding the tag “wedding” to a catering article and a photography article may help your visitors find related content on your website.
  4. There is also an option to add a Featured Image to your post.

You can preview and edit posts in the same way as you do for pages. When you want to publish or save your changes click on the Publish or Update button.

How To Setup Email

Here is a how-to for setting up Email on revmarketing2u.com’s servers.

Secure SSL/TLS Settings

Username:Your Email
Password:Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server:advanced1368.inmotionhosting.com

  • IMAP: Port 993
  • POP3: Port 995
Outgoing Server:advanced1368.inmotionhosting.com

  • SMTP: Port 465
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

Non-SSL Settings

Username:Your Email
Password:Use the email account’s password.
Incoming Server:mail.your-url.com*

  • IMAP: Port 143
  • POP3: Port 110
Outgoing Server:mail.your-url.com*

  • SMTP: Port 587
Authentication is required for IMAP, POP3, and SMTP.

*Please input your url here:  Example – mail.revmarketing2u.com

Notes:

  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.

A few quick email etiquette tips by Tracy Thomas

Emailing From Your Website

Knowing email etiquette…

Are you sending emails to clients, groups or followers of a blog post? Well, there are a few consequences for sending inappropriate sized files. Are you a business that is filling up and shutting down your clients email accounts and causing subsequent email to bounce that is disturbing your clientele? Are you aware of this? With a little training on email etiquette and just a few good tips of how to manage an email campaign or group email you can avoid client concern, embarrassment and set a fine example of proper email etiquette with some quality help from Rev Marketing 2 U.
Etiquette…To simply attach files without taking the time to consider the person or business on the other side might be considered self-serving not to mention reflecting the lack of professional etiquette. We have written a few basic guidelines to get you going on a successful path with emailing and blogging.

Features & Benefits of emailing from your website…

  1. Hyperlinks: You can place a hyperlink in the emails and posts which is a term used for clients to click on and return back to your website or specific URL.
  2. Organic Ranking: You will drive your traffic higher while enhancing your visitor count. This will greatly increase your company’s status and online ranking by the search engines.
  3. Bringing Them Back: Yes, each email that goes out would have a link to bring them back to your website to purchase, register, educate or browse your website a little longer.
  4. More Content: As you post to your blog section on the website, your website is growing in size, searched pages, content, images and even videos. You might ask, what does this mean? This means you are on a path to becoming a higher quality scored site that will then attract more visitors searching for YOU and YOUR business. You want to be “King Of Content” and have your website working for you 24/7.
  5. Private or Public: Your information can be sent privately or publically. You select if you want to simply send the email or make it public on the website plus send the email.
  6. Social: Are you wanting to get social? Yes, your content, newsletter, updates, new laws, requirements or just a good old story can be posted on your website, emailed to your client list and YES, it can automatically go to your social sites without you having to copy and paste your content on Facebook, Twitter etc. A real time saver! But remember, if you desire it to be just a private email, then that’s what it would be!
  7. Rev Marketing 2 U Support: With the RM2U support we will help you and your team utilize the blog to any level you desire.
  8. Getting Fresh: The Search Engines, Google Bots, and people in general tend to flirt quite often. They are always hitting on your website and you need to keep the content fresh. Your blog postings is just a perfect way to keep them crawling your website.

What to be careful about…

Spam: As a professional courtesy, a business should be courteous to their email list of clientele. Too many or too large of images will create clients emails to bog down and go into their spam/junk folders. Common image files to be sent are .png, .jpeg, gif, as they are web friendly and smaller in size.
