November 11th Development Meeting
Talked about new functions I found for the blog index page. We can not grab the featured image for that page and use it like other regular page’s featured image. We can also grab the title and use it for the main blog index page title. I posted the code used on our Website Process page for future reference.
I talked about the setup I found for Video Soup’s video selling and connecting with Amazon S3 storage.
We also discussed what we thought about the current lack of work and the new process. I said it seems like each year around this time our business slows due to the holidays. I also mentioned that we’ve caught up to projects where we are waiting on the new process. Regarding the new process Sean and I have concerns with gathering all the information. One being images, since we don’t have a beta we don’t know image sizes. If the client has a slider on their site and they provide us all the slider images upfront but they are 1000×500 and the slider ends up being 1920×800 new images will have to be retrieved. It’s a minor issue but I think as we start getting these new type of projects in we’ll work out the kinks.
We both still really want to start working on the new KC Web website!!!
Sean mentioned he overhauled the company’s PPC and now it’s down to $400/mo for same amount clicks as it was with $1,500/mo. Sean suggested that maybe we double that to try and help ramp up business during this time of the year or maybe spend the money saved on us building the new company site!
