Get Customers to Check-in to your Facebook Page #TBT

Get Customers to Check-in to your Facebook Page TBT daily-golden-nugget-1439-92
Welcome to the #ThrowbackThursday edition of the Daily Golden Nugget. Today, I'm jumping back to one of my early posts about location based services and checking-in on Facebook.

It was all the rage during the summer of 2010 to have a check-in app on your smartphone check-in everywhere. Gowalla, Foursquare, Whrrl, and Loopt were competing heavily when Facebook tried getting into the game. Facebook's initial eff...

The Jewelers of Las Vegas Website Re-review

by
The Jewelers of Las Vegas Website Re-review daily-golden-nugget-1270-61
In honor of the big jewelry shows in Las Vegas that came to a close on Monday this week, I'm searching around Las Vegas again for this week's website review edition of the Daily Golden Nugget.

I was still in New Jersey when I wrote last week's review of another Las Vegas jeweler, but this time I'm sitting in my hotel room at The Excalibur writing this weeks.

Last week, I simply searched for...

Foursquare Is Quite Useful While Other LBS' have Checked-Out #TBT

Foursquare Is Quite Useful While Other LBS have Checked-Out TBT daily-golden-nugget-1264-58
In today's Throwback Thursday, I'm bringing back a group of old Nuggets that are near and dear to my hart: Location Based Services.

One of our more ambitious events here at jWAG was back in August 2010 when we held live video broadcasts several days in a row, we called it "jWAG Live 2". Every day we covered different topics, one of which was ...

Gold City Jewelers Website Review

by
Gold City Jewelers Website Review daily-golden-nugget-1175-46
Welcome to the Friday jewelry website review where I randomly select and review the website of a retail jeweler. The goal is to dissect their online accounts to see how they might be ranking highly, and what they might be doing right, or wrong, with their online identity.

I use Google's Chrome browser in incognito mode when searching; otherwise the search results will be skewed based on my personalized search results and the top ranked sto...

Internet Marketing Agencies - Changing With Technology

by
Internet Marketing Agencies - Changing With Technology daily-golden-nugget-1143-44
The internet has seen many changes over the last 4 years since I started writing these Daily Golden Nuggets. Undoubtedly, a lot of that change was informed by Google, but really there are a lot of other factors involved.

Through the Great Recession, a lot of easier and less expensive technology emerged that now allows us to access information from anywhere at any time. You could argue that the technology companies forced fancy new mobile devices on us; or you could say that the technology devel...

These Old Daily Nuggets Are Now Rubbish

by
These Old Daily Nuggets Are Now Rubbish daily-golden-nugget-1077-98
Seventy-seven week days ago, when I reached the 1000th Nugget milestone, I got the idea that I should write a recap of all the technology that I wrote about that came and went since 2010 when I started this daily newsletter.

Although I really want to be nostalgic, I don't even have the time to look through 1000 posts to create a full list. But I'm going to give it a try and see where this goes, so let's have a little fun... Instead of learning something new today, I'll look at some old topics that I'v...

Ready? Set. SELL!

by Matthew Perosi
It's Black Friday in the USA and that means millions of people are out spending money and hopefully many of you retail store owners are bringing in some good sales. Which, by the way, we hope you are reading this from your cell phone or tablet while out on the sales floor.

Speaking of cell phones and tablets, here are a few good ideas you should think about over the next week.

#1.
This one's for iPad users. Get yourself a nice photo frame stand that the iPad can sit in. A clear plastic frame will work, too. Load the iPad with some photos of items you have in stock. On Windows, you can easily load photos as if the iPad is a camera by using the standard iConnect-to-everything-iRelated-cable. On a Mac, you can use the iPhoto program to load and organize your photos.

Once your photos are loaded, place the iPad in...

Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

by Matthew Perosi
If you think it's difficult to keep track of how quickly technology changes on the internet, try keeping your head screwed on straight as you keep up with the associated names of the technologies as they change. If you feel our information also makes your head spin, you should take the time to read this Nugget; it's not technical and if you don't, well, then we are not getting through to you and you might as well quit jWAG.

Our Daily Golden Nugget #1 will forever be immortalized because above all other topics, we felt it was important to start our Nugget series with the topic of Google Maps.

Then, a little more than 2 months later, we revisited the topic again, but referred to it as Google Places.

You may not realize it today, by you are living in a transitional point in human history. The last major shift due to te...
