Changes and Shifting!

Posted by on Aug 20, 2013 in Memories and Moments | 0 comments

If you’re a client of mine, you probably already know the news.

I’ve formed a new company called Autumnbridge Media LLC!

After nearly seven years as a sole proprietor business, I decided it was time to expand and create an “umbrella company” for all of the current and upcoming projects I’m undertaking.

Look for the holisticgeek.com website to transition to a blog about web design, WordPress, productivity and coaching for soloprenuers, and a few holistic tips mixed in from time to time.  I’ll also be moving all of my client services, “how to hire me”, and the online marketing offerings of mine to a new Autumnbridge Media LLC website in the coming months.

Also look for some new and unique sites coming soon that will be “brought to you by Autumnbridge Media LLC” – just like this one!  I have some great things in the works, so stay tuned!

I want to thank everyone who’s followed me over the years on the blog!  It’s only going to get better, and I’m really excited!

Have an awesome day!
Scott

Because Dave Ryder Asked – I’m Sharing

Posted by on Apr 6, 2012 in Fun, Videos | 0 comments

Here’s another lesson for you about social media.  ASK folks to share your posts, music, newsletters, etc!  Yes, just put it out there and ask “Could you share my video?”.

That’s what happened here.  Dave Ryder is a 16-year old singer/songwriter who’s just getting his feet wet putting out videos, and he’s not half bad!  I saw him posting on a Facebook group that I frequent, and he simply introduced himself, and ASKED if we’d share his video.  And so I am!

Enjoy Dave’s song, and comment on his YouTube Channel!

Introducing Protection Plus

Posted by on Nov 30, 2011 in News, Productivity | 1 comment

I’ve introduced a new service for my existing clients called Protection Plus.

Here’s why.

About a month ago, immediately following my move to Eden Prairie, MN, one of my clients’ web sites suffered a malware attack and was unavailable.  Imagine having this image in place of your current web site when a potential client comes to visit:

It’s no fun to get hacked or for a virus to infiltrate your site.  In this particular instance, the offender was a javascript file within a WordPress theme that Google and another third party search engine deemed “Malicious Code” or Malware.   After about 4-5 hours of combined time analyzing the site, restoring from backup, updating WordPress files (and plugin files), changing all passwords, and eventually applying a new WordPress theme, I was able to submit my client’s web site for another review by Google so that the big red box would no longer be shown, and the site would be live again.  Within 24 hours after the review, my client’s site was restored.

I was glad to help in this instance.   But in retrospect, had there been a regular “protection plan” in place with regular WordPress file updates, theme updates, plugin updates, and settings optimizations, this five-day downtime of my client’s web site could have been avoided.

So, starting RIGHT NOW – I’ve introduced what I’m calling Protection Plus – a yearly subscription service to help my existing clients stay up to date and protected, for just $99/year.  ($79 until December 31, 2011).

To take advantage of Protection Plus you need only be a client of HolisticGeek.com, have a WordPress-based site, and be hosted by TigerTechnologies (our preferred web host).

Please visit the Protection Plus Page for more details on this new service, and to sign up!
