3 ways to improve your website with Podsnack

April 16th, 2015

If you have any kind of audio content you want to embed on your website in a playlist, Podsnack is the best way to do it. Here are 3 ways in which you can make your visitors experience better using our tool:

1.Background music. Make sure to choose something relaxing, that goes well with the theme and content of your website, some classical music perhaps would provide a soothing audio background while the user browses the content of your website. As an example click play below and read the rest o this article

2.Audio transcripts. This works best for blog posts, nowadays everybody has a smartphone or some other device that allows you to connect to the internet while commuting to work. Reading a blog post and driving at the same time could prove to be problematic, if not dangerous and downright illegal. Why not give your audience the option to listen to your latest blog post on their way to work in the morning?

3. Podcasts. Podcasts have experienced a rise in popularity over the past few years with mobile devices becoming ubiquitous. And it looks like things are only going to get better with the increasing number of new cars being able to directly connect to the internet. A recent study revealed that by 2025 every new car will be connected to the internet. Podsnack is a great tool if you want to add your podcasts in playlists, whether you want to post the latest one on your blog or create an archive with all your previous podcasts.

If you find other cool ways to use Podsnack let us know in the comments below!

Weekly article roundup 6 – 12 April

April 10th, 2015

Our colleagues were busy this week posting some excellent articles on our Bannersnack blog. Here’s a short recap in case you missed them.

  •  If you work in an advertising agency we have a very comprehensive article on why you should use display ads, and also some pointers on how you can pitch it to your colleagues/clients

“There’s little to no doubt about it – signing on new clients is hard work. You spend a lot of time, money and resources to generate leads and then to close the sale. All this makes selling your clients something that’s not very popular to begin with even harder.”

“ How much resource do the brands invest in content just to market the right audience? If we create a content just to sell a product or a service isn’t this just another way of doing advertising?”

“And I, for one, I admit I am in a constant fight with time. This is why I must optimize some tasks in my daily life. So I thought about sharing with you 5 “tools” I use almost every day”

Build your online presence – the Snack way

April 1st, 2015

 

If you’re looking for a job you probably know that a potential employer is very likely to do an online search before hiring you and what they usually find are your social media profiles, such as your Facebook or Twitter account. Why not do better and create a website to highlight all your strengths and qualities that make you the perfect candidate for the job?

You can very easily create a website in Snackwebsites either from one of our templates or from scratch. As a layout example you could have the homepage with a picture of yourself and a short bio. You should also have an about page where you can put a more in-depth description of yourself. Make it personal, tell a story. Make sure to include your hobbies and interests outside of work. Are you a nature lover who doesn’t miss any opportunity to take a hike? Select the best images you can find with you outdoors and build a slideshow with them.

If you’re a photographer, designer or do any kind of work that can be showcased online, don’t forget to make a Portfolio page. You will probably want to have a resume page as well where you can embed a flipbook with your actual resume. Last, but not least, make sure you also have a Contact page, because – who knows? –  somebody might reach out with a job offer even if you’re not currently looking for one.

One thing you might consider is buying your own domain name and linking it to your website. If available, the best would be for the domain name to be your own name, this will increase the odds that when the potential employer searches your name on Google to find your website as one of the very first search results.

You might think that presentation websites are something that only companies have but today we are all connected. The internet revolutionized the way we live, work and interact. Why not make the most of it and get the upper hand?

Make sure to check out some examples of how a presentation website like this might end up looking like.

How to choose the right premium subscription for you

March 25th, 2015

Today we’re going to talk about the different premium subscriptions you can purchase on our websites and how to choose the one that best suits your needs.

Let’s say you discovered Bannersnack and you would like to have the watermark removed or the option to download your banners in JPG/PNG and SWF formats as well. For that, you need a premium subscription. So you click on the Go Premium button and you have 3 options:
Bannersnack options

Now you’re wondering which of the three options is best suited for your needs.

  • The first one, Banner Pro, gives you premium access to Bannersnack only.
  • Snack VIP gives you premium access to Bannersnack & our other apps, so it might be a good idea to head over to our main website where you can find a list of all our apps and check them out, see if you might use anything else besides our banner creator. In case you are interested in some of our other apps, the Snack VIP is the right choice for you.
  • Snack Business is similar to Snack VIP, meaning you will get access to all of our apps, but you will get more daily views, so if you plan on using our embed code to implement your widgets on your website and your website gets a lot of daily traffic you might consider opting for the Business plan.

Another thing you should consider is going for a yearly subscription instead of a monthly one, because it’s more cost-effective. Additionally, you get 100$ Ad campaigns bonus for Snack VIP yearly and for the Snack Business yearly you get 200$ Ad campaign bonus which you can use to create an advertising campaign with us.

In case you decide you only need the Banner Pro subscription right now and Upgrade later don’t worry, we got you covered!
