Learn How Salesforce and WordPress are Integrated Today

One of the services that is provided on the Internet today is Software As A Service (SaaS). This is where some software resource is hosted in the Cloud and businesses can access it through their browsers on a subscription basis.

 

One of the software that is offered in this way is the Salesforce Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platform. This is a resource that helps businesses to attract new clients, get closer to their current ones and eventually convert them into loyal customers.

 

Another type of software that is offered is the WordPress Content Management System (CMS). This one helps businesses to build and maintain company websites and portals. These online resources are very popular among businesses today. Initially, they were run separately but they can now be integrated to work cooperatively.

 

How is this done? Read on to find out.

 

Integration applications

There are some specially constructed applications that can help businesses to integrate WordPress and Salesforce. They are developed by the WordPress development team and posted in the WordPress Plug-In Repository. Some of these applications are free to download while others require purchase. They have some unique characteristics which are:

How are these applications helpful to your Salesforce CRM and your business as a whole? According to the salesforce git, they help you to retrieve information about visitors and customers who view your company's WordPress website.

Wix ShoutOut Review: Email Marketing Tool of a Website Builder

The popular WYSIWYG website builder Wix steps into email marketing to allow their customers access the powerful digital marketing tool without leaving to another website. Wix ShoutOut as it sounds aims to help customers to reach theirs through today trends of email marketing.

Let’s take a walkthrough this email marketing tool and take a tour of its features. We’ll see what is in the box and what is missing. Buckle up and grab some snacks.

There is no need to sign up to a new account if you already had one with the Wix website builder. You can simple login with your previous Wix account credentials and access the ShoutOut.

wix-shoutout-getting-started

After logging in to your Wix account (ShoutOut), you will be shown a screen giving your quick instructions on how to use the email builder like as shown above.

After completing it, you will be allowed to lay your hands on the WYSIWYG email editor where you can drag and drop elements, change themes and colors as you want.

Creating a neat email


wix-shoutout-interface

Clicking on ‘Add’ will give an option to insert the elements like text, image, button, logo, video, link, signup form and mix up of these elements in a layout.

All the other elements can be dragged into the email in the workspace and be positioned. But, the ‘mix’ element is quite interesting feature that inserts a section with a layout mix-up of multiple type of elements in it.

Clicking on the ‘Style’ will give a list of email themes to choose from. All the themes are elegant and graphic rich as I observed. This feature impresses me, with its good and professional looks. You can take look at the ‘music’ theme applied to the sample email in my editor from the screenshot below.

wix-shoutout-email-theme

Wix email editor allows you to choose a background of your choice. You not only can choose an existing background but also can upload your own.

wix-shoutout-background-selection

If you want to select a background from the preset list, choose one from it and click on it to apply. If you wanted to add your custom background, click on ‘+’ sign and upload your own background for the email.

Hint: Custom background will help you in branding the email in a much better way that a random image.

wix-shoutout-email-custom-background

[Forget the above demonstration of custom image. Well, its just a demonstration.]

Before proceeding to add the recipients, you can preview how the email looks on a computer screen and on mobile screen as well.

wix-shoutout-email-preview

You can test the email in your inbox by using the option ‘Send a Test Email’ on the preview screen.

wix-shoutout-test-email

Adding recipients

Clicking on the ‘Next’ on the email creation screen will bring you to the ‘Add Recipients’ screen. You can add email addresses one by one separated by commas or you can import the email IDs from your Gmail account or from CSV files on your computer.

wix-shoutout-import-contacts

Sending ShoutOut

You will be brought to this screen after clicking on the ‘Next’ button on the ‘Add Recipients’ screen. This screen will allow you to set the subject line, first name and reply email ID to your shoutout.

We will have two options here ‘Send Test Email’ and ‘Send Email’. The test email works as same as it works previously at the phase of email creation but with more customized details at this phase.

wix-sending-shoutouts

If you are sure about everything and ready to send your ShoutOut, just click ‘Send’ to get it delivered to your recipient’s email.

Full features of Wix ShoutOut Email Marketing Tool

I have used a free account of Wix ShoutOut to demonstrate the walkthrough process of email creation. All the features I have shown here will not come in limits with premium subscriptions. Let’s take a look at the features a glance:

Intuitive Editor – The Wix email editor is similar to the website builder’s. You can design an email beautifully as you want just like you used to build a website with Wix. The simple drag and drop tools, background and color customization option need no technical assistance in creating an email.

Custom Signup Form – As we have seen in the walkthrough, we can add a signup to capture leads and subscribers to your business and website.

Easy Contact Integration – You can import all your contacts from your Gmail and CSV files which is a mostly expected feature of any email marketing tool.

Social Media Tools – Wix ShoutOut allows users to share the email link onto social media profiles for better reach. This can even be used to notify your subscribers about the sent newsletter on social media.

Stats Tracker – You can track your sent emails and see how many of them are opening and clicking on them. This stats information can help you make correct decisions in building future strategies.

Responsive Design – The most wanted feature of now-a-day email marketing tool is the responsive designer. Over 70% of the user check their emails on the mobile phones first. Isn’t it enough to talk about the importance of responsiveness here.

Free Templates – Wix ShoutOut offers free responsive email templates for it users. One can simply apply the theme and customize it as wanted.

What should have included?

According to my experience with some of the top email marketing tools, I feel Wix ShoutOut is missing some features which might be added with time in future. The following are the features that this email marketing tool lacks.

Auto-responders – An average digital marketer will lookout for this feature. Because, responding to every email would be a hectic task for any company with large customer base.

Smart Reports – The email stats cannot be distilled with more customization. Reporting intelligence should have been much better in Wix ShoutOut.

A/B Testing – If we talk about smart reports, we should also consider A/B testing for such an email marketing tool. A/B testing helps to work on different marketing goals and reports results.

I expect to see these features coming to Wix ShoutOut very soon.

Whose plate of dish is Wix ShoutOut Email Marketing Tool?

Wix ShoutOut is yet a wonderful email marketing tool which is simple, easy and fast. It would need no technical knowledge at all. Unlike other complex email marketing tools with advanced options that are not understandable by most of the marketing people, Wix offer a better way to send newsletters with beautiful design and simple reporting stats.

If you are marketing person with less technical knowledge and if you are looking out for an email marketing tool that serves your purpose flawlessly, Wix ShoutOut is your plate of dish.

Feel free to share your thoughts about this new email marketing tool in comments below.

How to Monitor Sexting with the Help of a Software?

According to Google “Sexting” is a term that usually refers to “sending (someone) sexually explicit photographs or messages via cell phone.” Sexting is something that has not always been there. It is one of the many gifts of technology that we have to put up with no matter what. The fact that tons of people are sexting today in order to keep their sexual lives interesting is not as horrifying as the idea that hackers are actually putting quite some work and effort into getting hold of such pictures illegally.
 
Remember the iCloud scandal? Where the iCloud was hacked and pictures of countless celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence, Victoria Justice, Ariana Grande, etc. were leaked onto the internet. Sounds like the worst thing to happen ever, doesn’t it?
 
Ever since its rise in popularity, more and more people are turning towards it. Not because they actually have a reason to send a sext, but because it is the “IT” thing now and they are the trend chasers. According to a recent study, there are three major types of sexting, which are:
 

Type 1: People in a Relationship

This class of people refer to exchange steamy message with the people they are in a relationship with. These messages may include anything at all – a picture, a video, a sound clipping, a text, etc. Such a sexting relationship exists between a husband and a wife, or a long distance (or otherwise) girlfriend and boyfriend, etc.
 

Type 2: Cheaters

This group basically comprises of individuals who are in relationship with other people but at the same time they like to sext with others who are not their partners. People who are bored of their monotonous lives tend to follow this path, with most of them just looking for a steamy short-lived affair that could add some spice to their lives, without the knowledge of their current partners.
 

Type 3: The Hopefuls

This group includes that class of people who are looking to be in a relationship and have someone in their sights they’d like to be their other halves. Therefore, they exchange such raunchy material in order to attract the other person.
 
We have already mentioned how chasers “sext” trend just because it is the new thing to do. Such sexters usually include children. Children i.e., teens who are not yet of legal age and who can be legally tested by law as adults if they are found in possession of such explicit material for possession and distribution of child pornography, even if the picture is their own. Therefore, not only those partners whose other halves are cheating on them but concerned parents need to invest into spy applications to ensure their own protection and the protection of their loved ones.
 

Why Use Spy Applications?

The name spy app sounds notorious to people with delicate sensibilities but it is the only solution to keep a close and keen eye on your children and partner because of its various features, a few of which are:
 

Stealth Mode

Since spy applications mostly work on stealth mode, this way you can monitor your child or your spouse easily without their knowledge. Additionally, with remote access you do not even have to access the target device physically. All you have to do is login to your account and access all their activities in real time.
 

Text Message Monitoring

Monitoring messages is always in your favor because this is where teens and potentially cheating partners conduct most of their communications. It is also the primary source of sending and receiving sexts.
 
teenagers-sexting
 
Additionally, monitoring texts with cell phone spy can also let you know:
  • Who your child or partner is sexting?
  • Who is Sexting them?
  • What is the time frame of sexts being sent and received?
  • What is their frequency?

Email Monitoring

Another way your teen or your partner might be sexting somebody is through email. It is another discreet form of messaging that gives you information about the person sexting and vice versa as well as the timeframe of the sexts.
 

Access Browsing History

If your other half is visiting websites like Tinder, J-date or match.com, or your child is visiting inappropriate websites, then their browser search history may present the evidence to it all. Therefore, keeping a close eye on it will always be in your best favor.
 

The Bottom Line

Technology is indeed taking over the world, but the intention behind its creation was pure. No matter how off the tracks it uses have gone in the recent years, only technology can help combat it. Therefore, use of spy apps to keep sexting at bay is not only good for you and your family from a legal point of view, but from a moral and psychological point of view as well.

Manage Disk Space On Your Computer Like a Professional

Handling hardware tasks especially operations and issues related to hard disks are a bit risky for non-professionals. It is the game of data that you will be playing there, when you lay your hands on your drive operations. If encountered any unfamiliar issues, they will give you sleepless nights.

 

Managing the disk space on your computer includes resizing, moving and merging the partitions as per the need and converting the disk formats to make them compatible for different operating systems. It would need a professional to perform the tasks with no failure of data safety.

 

The even better idea is to do it yourself. It not only helps you save the technician service costs but also teaches you how to do it next time for youself or for your neighbor (trust me! You’ll regret helping out your neighbor with his/her computer).

 

Let’s learn how to manage disk space for yourself

Step 1: Download this disk partition software, named Partition Master Professional from EaseUs software which is an efficient tool for managing the disk space on your computer very well. Its easy-to-use user interface allows any non-professional user take control of their hard disks without any hassle. It helps you create, merge, resize, copy, convert, wipe and defragment specific partition or the whole drive at your wisdom.

 

I use this software to manage hard disk space on my Windows 7 desktop PC and on my Windows 10 laptop as well.

 

Yes! It is compatible with Windows 10. That felt like a cherry on the cake when I read about it when I was suffering with the loss of 20GB hard drive space after installing Windows 10 on my Windows 8.1 laptop.

 

Step 2: After downloading, install it like as any other software on your computer in just few clicks.

 

I recommend you to buy this software instead of using a 7-day trail because some advanced operations will be restricted of their functionalities (fully) after the trail period.

 

Step 3: Run the software after installation. It will show the list of your drives and partitions in the home window.

 

easus-partition-master-pro-home-window-screen

 

Step 4: Right-click on the drive partition for options.

 

drive-options-easuus-partition-master-pro

 

Choose an option of your choice and requirement and click on it to open the respective operation wizard.

 

What are these options mean and what they do?

The options provided in Partition Master Pro edition are the foremost disk operation options that are available for the disk technologies that we are using. However, a newbie will find it difficult in knowing the difference among them.

 

I’ll cover up all the options in the software so that you can be confident enough while using it. Also, EaseUs Software provides better support for this software through online and direct email. I’d recommend you to contact them to report any issues regarding the software. Amfas Tech is just covering all its features for your understanding.

 

Resize/Move Partition

It helps you resize or move an existing partition of the hard drive. You can increase or decrease the partition size or move it entirely onto another.

 

Points to remember:

  • Resizing partition may shrink or expand the size of the disk partition. You can only expand it if there is any space left empty on the drive or any another partition has been shrunken.
  • To move the space between volumes, there must be an unallocated space (may be the shrunken part from existing volumes) on the disk.

Copy Partition

Copy partition will copy down the whole partition on to another partition. The volume(s) can be duplicated so that you no need to worry about data loss while working on a partition.

 

Point to remember:

  • Make sure your destination partition have the same size (or more) as of the source partition size.
  • If the destination partition is undersized, the partition copying option may fail or copy only very less data on to the destination volume than existed.

Migrate OS to SSD/HDD

This is a life saver option that I like most. The operating system can be entirely copied on to another drive without losing the software configurations and settings. This option asks you to choose a destination disk to migrate the whole operating system to.

 

Points to remember:

  • It is not recommended to opt for this option if you are willing to do this operation as a virus removal process. Because, migrating OS will not remove viruses at all, instead copies all the crap onto the new drive also.
  • It is best option to opt, if you are facing any memory clogs with the current hard drive or facing any other disk issues with it and you don’t want to re-install the OS.

Merge Partition

This operation will help you merge more than one partition into one single partition at the possibility of merging two at a time.


Points to remember:

  • You can only merge volumes of same format and that too up to the size of 4TB as per the software capability.
  • You cannot merge boot partition onto system partitions or vice-versa. But, you can merge unallocated disk spaces to any format volumes.
  • EaseUs partition master pro can only merge basic volumes but not dynamic volumes.

Convert to logical

Primary volumes restrict the number of partitions to three/four at maximum. To have another partition along with the limited number of primary volumes, you should convert it into logical as you can add unlimited logical volumes after the primary volume restriction.

 

Points to remember:

  • You can only convert primary partitions to logical only when your hard disk’s partitioning scheme is MBR.
  • After the primary volume limitation is reached, you have to format the extra volumes to logical to have them shown.

All the above features perform key operations on the hard drive. The remaining options are to optimize it.

 

Change label – Changes the drive label.

 

Defragment – Cleans up the fragments chunks of memory on the drive and speeds up the data writing and reading.

 

Set Active – Sets the active boot partition where there are multiple operating systems on the drive.

 

Check Partition – Checks errors in the partition and removes them.

 

Exploration – Explores the content in the drive(s).

 

Properties – Shows the amount of usage and free memory on the disk.

 

Wrapping up

You might have got a brief idea and some confidence by now in managing hard disk space on your computer on your own. If you have got any serious problems using the software, you may contact the EaseUs support without any hesitation. I haven’t got any issues so far and hope you won’t find any at your side.
