Welcome To The New Mr. Media Training Blog!
Welcome to our new website!
For the first time since launching Mr. Media Training almost five years ago, we have undertaken a complete redesign of the site.
More important, we’ve improved the user experience for you.
As of today, our site is now fully responsive for mobile (finally!). The days of having to stretch one of our pages on your phone to be able to read it are over. Whether you visit us from your desktop, tablet, or smartphone, you will now have a fully optimized experience.
You’ll also notice a few new features when visiting from a desktop:
- Instead of having to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page, you’ll now be able to see our seven most recent posts at a quick glance (you’ll see something similar on mobile devices).
- A carousel running across the middle of the page contains six “Featured Posts,” helping to solve the problem of useful posts getting buried over time. We’ll update the carousel frequently. (On mobile, you’ll be able to access this feature from the main menu.)
- We’ve also made our “Recommended Reading” and “Resources” links easier to find at the top of the page, and will refresh both regularly.
How you can help:
As with any redesign, you may encounter a glitch or two along the way. Please email us if you spot one at Contact@MrMediaTraining.com (we’d appreciate a screen shot if you see anything particularly off). And if you like what we’ve done, please share our blog with your colleagues and social media networks!
Thank you for being part of our community. We hope you enjoy our newly designed website.
Congrats! It looks good! Kudos on going mobile/responsive. So important.
Thanks, Deborah! I’ve been hoping to do this for quite a while, but wanted to pair it with a complete site redesign. Would be very interested in your thoughts once you’ve had a chance to look around.
Harrumph…this Internet and those smart cellular phone dohickeys are a fad! Never gonna catch on!
Seriously, though, I love the site. The responsive design is great. Congrats!
Thanks so much, Art! It’s been a long time coming, and I hope it improves your experience with the site.
Thanks for reading,
In what is likely a surprise to nobody; kudos to a job well done on the new site design and functionality! Mobile!!!
Thank you very much for those kind words. You, more than anyone else, prompted me to finally spend the time and resources on becoming mobile-optimized. For that, I’m grateful.
Thanks Brad, the new mobile site looks good.
I’m delighted to hear that all is looking good in Australia! Thanks for letting me know.
Hope all is well,
Looking good, Brad. However, I’ve had to dismiss the invitation to sign up for your newsletter three times in the last 10 minutes. I dismissed it the first time. I clicked, “No thanks” the second time. And then it came back again.
On some sites, these things persist even after you’ve signed up for the newsletter. After multiple dismissals, I start thinking twice about visiting those sites.
I’m looking forward to a time when everybody stops doing this.
Thank you very much for your comment.
That shouldn’t be happening, and I’ve reported it to the web team. Once somebody clicks on “No thanks,” the pop-up is supposed to disappear forever (or for as long as the site recognizes the cookie, at least).
I know people hate these pop-ups, as do I. The reason I decided to do it anyway is that the majority of site visits from Google are from one-time visitors. I have only one chance to get them to be a more active part of the community, and the early results show that the pop-up has dramatically improved the sign-up rate.
The last thing I want to do is annoy regular users. I’ll work with my web team to get this right.
