How to make Blogger template Responsive & mobile friendly

How to make blogger template responsive

You are thinking How are Responsive Layouts Designed. For me it's very simple to design responsive blogger template. In fact every template can be changed into responsive template. The only thing you need to know is HTML and CSS. If you know both ,  then it will be very easy to make your template responsive.
Every template can be made responsive in just 2 simple ways which are: 
1. Meta viewport.
2. @media queries.
Normally browsers opens Webpages in desktop view. It is OK to view Webpages in desktop but when you open your Webpages in mobiles and low resolution screens, it becomes very hard to read and click on links. You have to zoom every time you want to read a portion of Webpage. To overcome this situation we need to help our browser in detecting device-width which is done with metaview ports.
Meta viewport helps in detecting device width for the browsers. Now the next step is to add media queries. In media queries we use custom CSS for different screen sizes. Media queries acts as the conditional if else tags for the browsers. Example. For desktop view you set 3 column view and for tablet you use 2 column view and similarly you use single column for mobile phones. Now when a person opens your website,  then the browser will detect screen size with the help of meta viewport and then will call appropriate css for that device. To make your website responsive you need to follow two basic steps which I will explain below.

Step by step to make responsive templates.

Step 1:  add meta viewport just below the <head> tag of your blogger template.
<meta name="viewport" content=" width=device-width , initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1"/>

Step 2: Add media queries to your css file.
/* Laptops & Desktops */
@media only screen and (max-width : 1280px) {
/* css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 1280px */
}
/* Tablets 1024px */
@media only screen and (max-width : 1024px) {
/* css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 1024px */
}
/* Tablets 768px */
@media only screen and (max-width : 768px) {
/*  css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 768px */
}
/* Phones 640px */
@media only screen and (max-width : 640px) {
/*  css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 640xpx */
}
/* Phones 480px */
@media only screen and (max-width : 480px) {
/* css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 480px */
}
/* Small Mobiles 320px */
@media only screen and (max-width : 320px) {
/* css here will be rendered if and only if device width is less than 320px */
}

Helpful Tips:

1. Always Use percentages in writing CSS values instead of numeric values to define width of columns. This will make your template highly responsive.
2. Always use  max-width, box-sizing, and min-width properties.
3. Use css like below and only make changes with percentages.
@media only screen and (max-width : 320px) {
.sidebar{ width: 100% ; float: none; }
}
4.  If you want to hide any particular section just use Display:none; in the css.


Note: there are many breakpoints for media queries but here I show only common breakpoints that are sufficient for every type of device width. You can see my template which is highly responsive and I use only these media queries.

How to enable responsive template for blogger mobile.

If you successfully followed all the above steps then it's time to activate your responsive template for blogger mobile view.
Step 1: Go to Blogger Dashboard.
Step 2: Click on Template.
Step 3: You will see a gear icon in mobile template. Click on that icon.
Step 4: Now you have to select " Custom ”
Step 5: Save all the changes.

How to make blogger template mobile friendly without editing template and media queries

If you find about method difficult or you don't know how to use media queries with css. Then you need to use this method to make your blogger blog mobile friendly.
Step 1: Go to Blogger Dashboard.
Step 2: Click on Template.
Step 3: You will see a gear icon in mobile template. Click on that icon.
Step 4: Now you have to select “Yes. Show mobile template on mobile devices.”
Step 5: Save all the changes.

How CMOs can leverage Artificial Intelligence in B2B Marketing?

1 comment

What is Artificial Intelligence?


In simple terms, Artificial Intelligence is a branch of computers in which a computer programmer adds human like decision making power into a program. This is done by adding situations in the programs with solutions and the ability to learn by experiences. A Natural Language Processing is needed to Make Expert System Interactive with User.


How CMOs can leverage Artificial Intelligence in B2B Marketing?

This can be done very easily with proper planning and better research of marketing needs and technologies. In this post, i am giving you 5 areas where Artificial Intelligence is successfully installed in B2B marketing by Big Companies.

1. Programmatic advertising

Programmatic advertising is very popular since Google is using it on their platform. Now its already a big Business in online marketing and Advertising. This Type of advertising is done by automation of ad planning, buying or selling, optimization of ad size and format, so that it becomes easier for advertisers to target specific audiences and demographics.
     Nowadays it is used for online advertising(Display ads, and Text ads), and social media campaigns. This Programmatic advertising finds optimized time and ad for a marketing campaign to make it 100% efficient. This approach is also used by TV channels to show high paying ads at the time of highest number of audience. According to a recent survey, it's clear that 50% of online display ads are bought programmatically in the US.
The biggest example of this approach is Google Ad Exchange. This Ad exchange Platform is an Artificial Intelligence platform which is known for its efficiency while doing ad campaigns for a client. They care about 100% success rates without wasting a single penny of the advertiser.
     This Ad exchange platform automatically sets the cost of display ads in an efficient way which is very hard for a human to do. The benefit of this platform is its simple concept, efficiency, full automation and better customer targeting for increased sales.

So we can say that Programmatic approach is widely used by big companies and the same can be used in B2B marketing by CMOs.


2. Content production

In above approach, it is clear that AI can generate Optimizes Ads and Optimized targeting for increasing the sale. Now it's clearer than AI can take decisions and do a process automatically without human involvement.
So, it should not be a new thing if a say that AI can create content like articles, ads, summary, and NEWS. AI is very helpful and Successful in generating reports to analyze a Business Performance.
AI can be used as virtual authors for writing automatic Press releases and News Contents to Balance sheets of a company.
Gartner predicts that by 2018, 20% of business content will be authored by machines.
Associated Press (AP.org) is already using an Artificial Intelligence system to produce many of  their financial stories in seconds.
  If you still have doubts in auto content generation bots, then check it here http://newsok.com/article/feed/789011  and see at the end this is written “This story was generated by Automated Insights".

How cool is this right?
 well,
 The performance of this AI But is too much higher. It can create 2000 articles per seconds for companies like AP, Yahoo, and Samsung.
So, AI with Content Production skills can also help in B2B marketing. It can show Ad Campaign summaries, performance, weak and strong points of marketing strategy and a high level report.




3. Insight from data

As we know data is king in online or offline marketing and without data, we can't prepare our marketing strategies. As we have big data generated from various sources of a business, we can generate an insight to improve our strengths. But doing this without An expert System, it will take years to get a single bug free report. And in many cases the complexity of data is beyond human understandings. In this case, we use application of AI to generate insight from Raw data.
This insight will help CMOs in their marketing campaigns.
lets take an example of a Google Street View project, where people have the task of capturing street photographs and tagging addresses of the buildings. It will take years if humans will do it manually, but thanks to Google AI power, it was possible to complete above task in France in less than 1 hour. This type of technique is very accurate and are free from human errors.
AI can generate insight from big data within minutes for you.
One Example of this technique is here. We all know how big is the database of Google Analytics and there are too many views and custom channels are there. So, it becomes hard to analyze the data from Google Analytics. Here comes the Narrative Science’s Quill, that will show you professional reports in an easy and understandable way.


SO, AI can be easily used in getting Insight from big data to make future strategies and to set goals.



4. Social Media Influencer Marketing by CrescendoSPeak


CrescendoSPeak is a social media marketing company which is known for doing viral campaigns. They have a special AI bot which will find the right time of doing social media campaigns. So that it can reach to the huge number of online people easily.
 The idea behind this startup is promoting a campaign as a social cause. I did some basic research about their work and found that they were able to touch around a million lives with their campaign! Suppose you have 200 followers on Facebook and at CrescendoSPeak you have 10 friends who have 200 friends each. So, logically you have 200* 10+200= 2200 friends. When you start your campaign, the CrescendoSPeak will automatically post on all your social profiles including your friends' profiles. In this way this AI tool will post your marketing ad to all connected social profiles like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Reddit, etc. You should try this service because it's 100% free right now.

     Link: crescendospeak.com/about.aspx
In B2B marketing this tool can give you above 100% efficiency in your marketing campaign. Your single ad will become viral and you will start getting huge business.

5. New product launches

Companies are coming with new marketing techniques, some are coming with smart technologies like LG smart fridge. But if we talk about marketing, we can get help from AI in new product launches.
However, much perfect product is developed by brand, however much detail is prepared and explanations are provided by them, there will be many customers who will still ask questions.
This shows the curiosity of customers about the product. And through AI we can provide them a personal guide for that product.
For Example, Recently you all have heard about a new tech named iGenius which is an ad campaign developed by BMW to increase the popularity of the very first electric car.
This way they are able to seek the attentions of other companies about their AI tech. iGenius have experience based and evaluation based learning capacities and it can memories previous questions to give meaningful answers for upcoming questions. They can handle queries very fast and are able to collect huge data for their knowledge database. The Company will use asked questions to improve their upcoming products.
So we can say an Artificial Intelligence Expert System can launch and market new products easily and companies are widely using this to grow their revenue.


6. New customer experiences

A computer can give you answers for the questions you have asked, but do you know it have limitations?
Yes, check out below questions.
USER: Who sings WHY NOT ME?
COMPUTER: The answer is ENRIQUE IGLESIAS.
USER: How old is he?
COMPUTER: SORRY?

So here, AI is well needed to overcome this type of limitations. Now brands are developing this type of AI to enhance Customer experience. 
 They are giving virtual assistants to customers so that customers can easily understand new product and its scope with new functionalities.
Let's take examples of 2 Big companies who are using virtual assistants to enhance customer experience.

Google

Google was working with voice search for past few years, now they have their own virtual assistant which is GOOGLE NOW. But at this time this is very data hungry to provide much improved results.
A user need to say OK GOOGLE and it will automatically start Google Now voice search. Now ask your question and get answers within few seconds.

Apple

Apple, the brilliant smartphone maker has its very own personal assistant, which is Siri and is now fully optimized to serve you even in more better way. However, it requires an internet connection, but it's not data hungry as Google Now is.
It's capable of doing almost every electronic task like showing you pictures, playing songs, setting up the timer, answers to your questions etc.
At this time this tech is only available for Apple Devices making an apple product more valuable in the market.
So we can say that introducing AI in your devices and make your product more valuable and it will do product marketing without investing more in ad campaigns. In B2B marketing CMOs can implement this type of AI tech to make their product unique.


Hope you guys have understand the need of artificial intelligence in B2B Marketing.
Comment, if you have more ideas about leveraging AI in B2B marketing.

     Today, Everyone loves to do shopping online just because of the better price as compared to local shops. But still everyone wants more and more discount so that he/she can save more. We Indians love discounts as much as possible. This is the reason we usually spent a few hours in search of coupons but due to the fact that there are thousands of Coupon sites that are claiming to give you coupons and deals but a majority of sites have outdated coupons or fake ones. 

SALE

     So I visited Jabong Store on CouponRovers.com and found that there are so many offers available.
The offers were flat 40% off , 25% off on purchase of above 1500, upto 60% off + 20%  extra on purchase of  rs 1699,  etc. . Its very interesting that you have lots of offers to choose. After doing my calculation, I found that 25%  discount coupon is giving me 500rs discount which was shocking for me as I never got this much of discount on already discounted price.

1. Get a deal:  In this type of offer, CouponRovers.com will activate a deal for you, and you will visit to your retailer to grab that deal. In my case I visit Jabong.com to get my deal. I found that my deal was activated automatically and it didn't require any coupon code to avail discount.
2. Get the code: In this type of offer, you will get a special coupon code from CouponRovers.com which will give you discounts by applying it on checkout.

The user interface is pretty awesome and I will give 4.7 stars to it. The reason is every time I Click to get code or get deals, it opens the same webpage in a new tab which is not a good practice but overall it's good as compared with others.
For online coupon codes again, I will give 5 stars because all the Jabong Coupons are working on Jabong.com and I have got my discount on shopping.

How to Start a Self Hosted Blog in 15 Minutes

2 comments
Nowadays, there are lots of Successful Bloggers in India and they are earning a very good sum of money. This is one of the reasons, many students are choosing blogging as a profession just like me. Here in this article I will help you in starting your blog which is a first step towards your successful career.
     Blogging needs good writing skill, lots of hard work and a complete research before writing on any topic. Add images to keep the interest of your visitors.

     So guys what are you waiting for? Start your blogging journey today. Follow below tutorial and enjoy your blogging journey.

 Blogging As A Career


 To make this tutorial simple, I have divided it in 5 easy steps. Check out all steps and sub-steps below. Don't miss a single line. Every line has much importance here.

The Five Steps to launching a blog

  1.  Register a domain name
  2.  Get a Webhost
  3.  Install latest WordPress
  4.  Get an eye catchy theme
  5.  Log in and start blogging
Let's elaborate all these 5 points in depth below.


How to Register a domain name for your website.

Bluehost Domain Name Registration

     The very first step to start a business is you need to register a name on it. Same here, we need to register a domain name for your blog.
     To get a domain name like infiblogger.com you have to select a domain name provider.
It is highly recommended to purchase a domain name from a Web host because it will become easier to map your domain to your website. However, you will get a free domain with some Web hosting packages which is not free in other Web hosting companies.

Note: if you have an already purchased domain name you have to point the name servers to the Web host. To do this you can get help from Bluehost customer support.


How to Get a reliable Web host.

     First of all, to access your website it should be live 24* 7 so that everyone can access it anytime. To do so, we need a space on the server to save our websites and make it live so that our visitors can view it easily. So basically a Web host is a service provider which gives you hosting space on his server where your website will be stored and become live for all users. However to provide this service they will charge you some money. The charges can be from 0$ to 100$ per month depending on your host and you need.
     As there are thousands of Web host providers available in the market out of which some may give you free storage with some restrictions. I will recommend you about not using free hosting if you want to do blogging seriously. Free hosting are never reliable and your host will not give you high up-time and bandwidth.

So, to select a reliable Web host you need to do a little comparison of top Web hosting providers.

There are 7 comparison points that are very important to select a Web host. I am explaining every point here so that you will understand It's a little bit better

The major comparison points are below.

1. Disk space: it is the total space you are paying for. Just like a pen drive you purchase to store movies and documents. You can't store 9gb data on an 8gb pen drive. Similarly, for your website you need some disk space. There are many companies which are giving you unlimited disk space while some will give you only a few GB of storage. So you should try to get more disk space and prefer an unlimited disk space package.

2. Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the total exchange of bytes from your server to your website visitors. It's like buying an Internet pack of 1 GB for 1 a month and after crossing this limit your data pack will be expired. Same is in our case, if you have 10gb bandwidth and if your visitors are viewing your website regularly you will consume lots of bandwidth daily. It may increase your cost and you will be always worrying about your bandwidth limits. So it's my suggestion to select an unlimited bandwidth package for tension free blogging.

3. Up time: up-time is the time for which your website is available to your visitors. As there are lots of technical errors your website will become offline for a few minutes. If your website becomes offline, you will lose your precious visitors and revenue too. So, it's my suggestion to buy a Web hosting package which offers you 100% up-time or closer to 100%.

4. Security: There is a huge community of black hat hackers who always try to hack websites or their private data. If your Web host is not secure you will lose both your privacy and your website. So if you lose your website you will also lose your hard work.

5. Price: price is a biggest factor while comparing web hosts. Some will give you good hosting at 5$ and some will charge you 100$. But why should pay more when you are getting reliable Web hosting at cheaper prices? Also high charge Web hosting will reduce your profit earned from your blog. So sometimes your expenses may become higher than you're earning and nobody will try to earn in this way.
     Also, you should compare SignUp price of Web host and the renewal price. Some may offer you 5$ per month Web hosting for a year and after one year they may charge you above 50$ per month. In this case you will try to move your website from one host to another which is not recommended for serious bloggers.

6. Customer Support & community: every Web host may have some technical or support issue. You should choose a Web host which has good customer support as well as have a big active community. A community is very helpful if you want a solution without going for customer support.

7. Server location: geographical locations can impact your blog rankings. A blog hosted on a USA server will give you more preference of USA visitors and your server will work faster in the USA. Similarly, if you are in India and your target audience is from India, you need to have a server located in India. It will make your website faster and you will receive lots of visitors from India.


Bluehost.in
Here after comparing may top Web hosts, I will recommend you Bluehost as your Web Hosting provider. If you are living in India, you can get web hosting at Rs 249 per month only. You will get Indian servers for faster performance, unlimited disk space, unlimited bandwidth and unlimited email accounts. So you are getting premium Web hosting which is pocket friendly. So what are you waiting for? Order now and get one of the best Web hosting providers with 24* 7 customer support.
