Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing and interaction experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
When creating images and graphics for social media it’s imperative you use the correct sizes for your imagery if you want to be seen as a professional and taken seriously. This begs the question — what sizes should I use?
Searching through help sections for each and every social site or even worse browsing forums takes hours. Luckily there’s a handy guide which is always updated online.
In this quick-scroll world of social media, the visual face of your brand is often times the first thing your audience sees and it might be the one thing they remember. You can’t cut and paste an image and reuse it across all of your social networks — each one has different and constantly-evolving guidelines for images.
To optimize your social presence, you must ensure that the images you’re using to represent you or your brand are the highest quality and the best fit for the various networks and placements. To help, we’ve outlined the best image sizes for each social network and image types; and to ensure you’re as up-to-date as possible, we’ll revise the article as the networks change their formats.
More than 70% of users who abandon your website will probably never come back unless they buy something from you, or you successfully get them to subscribe to your email list.
Email is private, personal, and by far the most direct form of communication on the internet. Most people check their inbox more than their social media streams. An email will stay in the inbox unless a user takes action on it. On social media, your message will get buried into user’s timeline.

Most of the press we encounter about Etsy talks about how great and innovative of a company it is and how they give small artists and artisans a chance to sell their wares in a global market. But that is only a partial truth, no one is talking about what happens behind the scenes, about the corpses scattered all over and the lives left in ruins along the way.
Who knows if they are going to want you as a shopkeeper six months from now? I have heard far too many stories of Etsy shops being shut down literally overnight for one reason or another. Always remember that when it comes down to it, it’s still their “shop” and they have the power to close you down if they feel like you have somehow violated their “terms of service”.
This is one of the reasons that I always encourage artists to create their own online home first and then branch off into these other social media sites and online marketplaces. Use these websites like the tools they are, and not as your complete online identity. Remember to always send your visitors to your own website first and then link out from there to your Etsy shop, Twitter, or Facebook page.
