    The Latest in Online Marketing

    in Marketing

    Listen in as Marcia Hawkins and Kyle Clouse of Video Broadcast Services discuss the latest in online marketing and what trends you need to be aware of.


    The world of online marketing is constantly moving and changing. If you want your website to remain ahead of the competition, you have to keep up with the trends, with the latest in online marketing. For the following period, one of the most important aspects will be mobile-friendly versions of all sites and applications. The use of mobile gadgets is increasing rapidly, and a site that does not keep up will soon vanish.


    While this is not a new trend, it’s important to mention that content focused on images will continue to reign supreme. This has been going on for quite a few years now, and specialists do not expect any change from this point of view. Pictures and videos are still the most likely to get shared and discussed – in a world where fewer and fewer users have time to read an in-depth article, these remain the most valuable marketing tools available to you.


    Among the latest in online marketing, there is the tendency for minimalism. If you look at the giant companies, that dominate the online environment today, they have all understood that less is more. The logos are getting simpler, the ads contain less information, and everyone focuses on the essential. We understand better than anyone else that you have a lot to tell to you customers, but it’s best to pick only the most important aspects, and allow your potential clients to discover the rest for themselves. Of course, minimalist ads are quite difficult to create, and beautiful, shareable videos that make use of few elements are among the biggest challenges for video creators – which is why you’re fortunate to have found us to do it for you.

    Want Less To Become Happy

    in Self Help

    The crazy thing about beliefs is that they aren’t always based in fact. Just because you think you’ll be happy when you have money, that doesn’t mean you will, especially if you’re used to delaying happiness to some day when everything is perfect.

    LatinoTalk Texas 2014, 0008 Importance of Latino Voting & News

    in Politics

    Today's monolog has to do with the state of Latinos in America and how neither party has the best interest of Latinos in mind.  The reason is that Latinos do not vote often. Democrats take your limited votes for granted and Republicans are openly hostile toward Latinos because they vote in such small numbers and do not affect congressional and senatorial elections.  You must vote.  Be counted.  Vote independent or vote for yourself as a write in candidate but you must vote.  Support individual candidates who agree with your agenda but don't support the political parties.  Support yourself and vote!  


    Pope Francis in Korea makes big splashes with his minimalism and big political statements.  Demand for military action against the terrorist army of the Islamic State in Iraq.  In the Ukraine, Russia continues its efforts, undercover, to support and supply the separtists who continue to shoot down aircraft there and kill innocents. This activity is in direct response to Obama's feckless and weak foreign policy.  In Missouri the evidence now shows, may have been a false witness report.  Finally, Rick Perry in Texas faces indictment on felony corruption charges.

    Maximizing Rooftop Solar

    in Energy

    Join TalkSolar host Beth Bond as she interviews Ralph Velasquez, NewWind out of Nashville, Tennessee about their new way to maximize solar on your roof.


    Ralph has been involved in the roofing and building industry since 1978 and renewable technologies since 1999 .In his career, he has re-roofed millions of square feet in the Industrial, Commercial, Institutional and Governmental sectors all over North America. His passion for sustainability was formed from his early ideals of stewardship, minimalism and legacy, sharpened by five years in the late 80's and early 90's, working in sub-sahara Africa.


    Ralph is one of the industry's early innovators in the green roof industry. He developed the GreenSave calculator, the green roof industry's first financial benefit calculator and was part of the ASTM sub-committee that wrote the first five national ASTM standards for green roofs. He completed the first ever green roof installation on a Presidential Library, with the completion of the William Jefferson Clinton Library in Little Rock, Arkansas in 2008 and an award winning design on the National Institutes of Health, in Bethsesda, MD  Involved in distributed solar since 2008, Ralph developed over 3.5 mW of rooftop solar during the throngs of the great recession, from 2008-2010, 


    From 2010-2012, Ralph was the Executive Director for Sustainability for a global roofing manufacturer, responsible for all policy and strategic sustainability initiatives, world-wide. In late 2012, Ralph, along with his wife, formed Ark Investments to focus on micro investment opportunities in sustainability, in rural and local communities. To date investments have been made in sustainable animal husbandry, music and land development. Earlier this spring, Ralph joined NWES, as the Sr. Director of Business Development to again pursue the idea of rooftop solar, this time with a ROI financial focus.

    The Guardian Gives Rave Reviews for New Band Vancouver Sleep Clinic

    in Music

    NWP welcomes SWSX hot new band from Australia VANCOUVER SLEEP CLINIC! 


    17-year-old Australian, Vancouver Sleep Clinic, aka Tim Bettinson. Having only released two songs – the appropriately titled Vapour and the delicate Collaspe – Bettinson found himself supporting London Grammar on their Australian tour, which meant that his fourth ever live show was in front of a thousand people. Unfortunately a mooted support slot with London Grammar in America has been scuppered by antiquated VISA regulations (basically, the band haven't been together long enough or something), but the connection to London Grammar, musically at least, is fairly obvious. New single Flaws – the first release from his forthcoming EP The Winter and premiered here – is all about restraint and minimalism, Bettinson's Bon-Iver-minus-the-smoking-habit vocal floating out over a finger click beat, bubbling electronics and pockets of sun-dappled, meandering guitar riffs.

    Becoming A Minimalist: Living With Less

    in Motivation

    If you’ve ever fantasized about selling everything you own and paring down your possessions to the bare essentials, you’re probably familiar with minimalism. But it’s about more than just de-cluttering—it’s about getting rid of all clutter, permanently. Minimalism isn’t about empty white rooms with hardly any furniture. It’s about removing all the things that distract us from what’s important in our lives.
