Have a great Holiday Weekend

Gabriel Blau, Internet Marketing StrategistWe’re getting ready to close up shop for the holiday weekend and thought we’d leave you with a thought about the holiday and your business. Everything you do to grow your company depends on your ability to drive things forward. And in order to do that, and do it well, you have to feel good. At least that’s what we think.

So take this long weekend and use it as a chance to really relax. However this past year turned out for your business, this is one weekend where almost everyone is putting a hold on business. Relax, rejuvenate, and use the next week to get excited for a great 2010! (There has been an uptick in clients and blog readers as people are looking to make 2010 a great year – so feel free to talk to us about your 2010 marketing plan or become a member at VisibleU)

And if you need a bit of extra cheer, don’t forget to download our holiday wallpaper.  It really is happiness in a screen!

We’ll see you on Monday,

Gabriel and the VisibleU team

Support VisibleU By Admiring This Video :)

This is our promo video.  What many people don’t know is that it was almost completely done in house.  We only went to an outsider to get the music and sound mixing done.  Take a look.  We’ve posted it on YouTube, and we think it’s pretty sweet 🙂

George on What's different about VU

We’ve been teasing you a bit with hints about our upcoming launch Code Name: VU.  It’s time for another one, and we think you’ll enjoy it. First, it’s time to let you know, VU stands for VisibleU.  It’s huge, it’s awesome, it’s rad, and it’s almost ready.

George Hermann, co-founder of VU was in my office discussing our marketing philosophy and what makes VU different.  I liked what he was saying so I turned on my mic (always on my desk – another clue) and recorded the rest of his thought.  No editing, no second takes, no scripts.  Just George.

Enjoy and let us know what you think!

Hiring the Internet goes Mobile

iphone_screenshotSome of our particularly sharp-eyed readers may have noticed that we’ve just upgraded our blog.  After years of being hosted as part of the community of blogs, we’ve decided to make the move to the freedom afforded by self-hosting. Our main reason for making the switch is so that we can make use of some of the vast number of WordPress extensions to add extra features to this site.

For instance: this blog is now available in a slick format that’s optimized for mobile devices, courtesy of the sexy WPTouch plugin. Just visit on your iPhone, Ipod or Android phone to check it out.

Does Your Company’s Graph, Poll or Chart Need a Makeover?

Make your visual aids more simple and easy-to-use.

Don’t you want to get rid of that bowl cut your friend has been sporting since 6th grade? Sometimes visual aids, like people, need a makeover. Among its many benefits, makeovers can give an unsightly graph a quick touch up, get rid of a poll’s unappealing colors or clear out a chart’s numerical clutter. The whole point of the makeover is to try and make what you have better than what it was before.

It is very important for businesses to make their visual aids very simple and easy-to-use so that audiences instantly understand the reason for them. If the visual aids are not easily understood companies risk having their audiences both miss the message and become alienated.

Get Your Message Across

The inspiration for this blog came as I was reading the daily news online. When I landed on the newsweek homepage, my eyes were drawn to a poll graph that asked whether I was or was not in support of the US bailout plan.
