Oh tech errors reverting me back to an early autosave. What a pain. Goes to show that no matter how much experience you have with this stuff, some how fate always manages to throw sand in the gears now and then.
Anyhow, I’m off for the holidays come next week so we may lack some roundups for a bit. In the meanwhile posting will go on as usual.
This week we have LESS CSS, web form validation, landing page mistakes and more.
- We start the week with Design Shack and 10 LESS CSS examples you should steal for your projects.
- Next up Dzineblog has 18 web form validation scripts. Some of these are really fantastic.
- SexySocial has 11 best practices for your Google+ brand page. To be honest, I’m not totally sold on Google+ brand pages yet, and apparently I’m not the only one. Then again I’m not totally sold on Google+ yet…
- Ok, I love this post. Copyblogger complains about the term “ROI”, stating that, by definition, marketing doesn’t have an ROI. Sure, it’s nitpicking, but it’s Copyblogger. They’re all about using words correctly. Bonus: it’s also all done as a dialog. Oh, memories of Phil 101…
- Kiss Metrics has a post on making web analytics work for you… in case you haven’t yet. For the most part it’s the same analytics advice you’ll find anywhere, except they start it out with some fantastic advice on something that doesn’t get talked about too much in analytics: setting good goals. Not like good analytics goals, I mean good real-life goals.
- Of course Kaushik is back with advice on setting KPI’s for small, medium and large businesses.
- Copyblogger has a handful of great Landing page mistakes.
- And kiss metrics asks “does conversion rate tell the whole story?”
