Pass Wizard OS Upgrade Announcement

thread
Pass Wizard OS Upgrade Anno...
We’re happy to announce that we’re upgrading our operating system (OS) for our password manager, Pass Wizard. We’re upgrading our OS from Cent OS7 to Alma Linux 8 since there will no longer be technical support for Cent OS7 after June 30, 2024, and we continue striving towards making sure our password manager is the safest it can be. With this new upgrade, it will help patch any vulnerabilities to defend users against cyber threats.
 
However, updating the Pass Wizard OS will result in about 15 minutes of downtime, so we thought you should know ahead of time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
 
Update details
 
Before: Cent OS7
After: Alma Linux 8
 
This server upgrade will occur on:
 
*USA Pacific Daylight Time
- March 6th (Wednesday) 6:00-6:30am
 
*Japan Time
- March 6th (Wednesday) 11:00-11:30pm
 
If you have any questions about these changes or require more assistance, please email us at contact@pspinc.com or call us toll-free at 1-800-232-3989.

What’s New Newsletter Vol. 209 “Keep Your Data Safe with a Password Manager”

thread
What’s New News...
With how advanced cybersecurity has become, it’s important to make sure your personal data and online accounts are secure. Cybercrime unfortunately continues to rise as developers continue working on ways to protect users against hacks. So, what are some easy ways to keep your data safe?
 
  1. Use a password manager: A password manager keeps your sensitive data safe in one place. With our password manager, Pass Wizard, it couldn’t be easier to keep your accounts safe.

  2. Have varying passwords: Make sure you have a different password for every single one of your accounts. That way, in case of a hack, cybercriminals won’t be able to access all of them.

  3. Use an authenticator app: Connect your online accounts, including your password manager (like Pass Wizard), with an authenticator app to add an extra layer of security to your account.
 
Get a head start on keeping data secure by signing up for our password manager, Pass Wizard. With Pass Wizard, you can rest assured that your online accounts are safe. With Pass Wizard Pro, you can protect your accounts even more by connecting your Pass Wizard account to an authenticator app. Pass Wizard is free for up to ten passwords, or $19.95 for a full year (that’s just $1.67/month!) for an unlimited number of passwords. Sign up today.

What’s New Newsletter Vol. 208 “Why Business Cards Are Still Relevant Today”

thread
What’s New News...
As important as having a digital presence for your business is, business cards are still relevant today. They’re an essential networking tool, which helps connect businesses, especially small businesses, to potential customers, partners, and/or employers. They convey professionalism and it is much more impressive to pull a business card out rather than verbally telling a potential lead your contact information.
 
Business cards also make it easy to market yourself and/or your business quickly but efficiently. You can easily slip it to someone in passing and it can serve as a physical reminder for people to check out your website or reach out to you later at a more convenient time. That’s why, along with our other brand and graphic design services like logo or custom web design, PSPINC offers business card design services. Get started by heading over to our Brand & Graphic Design page.

Bluesky Opens Up to the Public: How It Could Change the Social Media Landscape

thread
Bluesky Opens Up to the Public...
On February 7, social media platform, Bluesky opened to the public after previously being an invite-only platform for almost a full year. The invite-only strategy allowed Bluesky to grow slowly as its developers worked on building out the service. Bluesky was first announced in 2019 by none other than Jack Dorsey, as a side project to build a decentralized standard for social media when he was still the CEO of Twitter (now X).
 

What is Bluesky?

bluesky app opening on phone next to mug of coffee
 
Many are calling it Twitter 2.0, as it closely resembles the platform from before Musk took over. However, there’s one big difference: it’s decentralized. What that means is that instead of the company storing users’ data on their own servers, independent servers store user data, giving users more control over their overall feed. Instead of an all-encompassing algorithm, users can create their own servers and switch without losing their data, according to Bluesky’s CEO, Jay Graber.
 
However, decentralized social platforms already exist, with the most popular one being Mastodon, due to its focus on discussing various topics. While popular with over 8.7 million users by October 2023, it isn’t nearly as easy to use because of how tech-heavy it is, with multiple servers, making it hard to navigate. Much like Mastodon, Bluesky offers multiple different servers, but switching from one to the other is seamless, and the overall interface is very reminiscent of Twitter’s old interface.
 

How Bluesky is Different from Other Text-Based Alternatives

threads app on a smartphone
 
After opening the platform to the public, Bluesky announced users could follow the Super Bowl game without hearing about Taylor Swift, which accelerated its overall growth by 1.6 million new users, bringing Bluesky's total user list to 4.8 million users. Then there’s Threads, Meta’s text-based offering, which is arguably the largest of the alternatives currently out there. But while it has the largest user base thanks to how easy it is to move your account from Instagram to Threads, it hasn’t captured the discussion aspect that X (previously Twitter) is known for.
 
What Bluesky aims to do differently is bridge the gap between the decentralized network and focus on the discussion aspect of Mastadon while delivering a user-friendly experience that Threads offers. While Mastadon, Threads, and various other platforms seek to replace X, they have yet to succeed for a multitude of reasons. With Bluesky eliminating the invite-only aspect of the platform and focusing on the lacking factors in other platforms, it may just have the potential to be a legitimate replacement for X.

What’s New Newsletter Vol. 206 “Evaluate Your Website for Free!”

thread
What’s New News...
We’re happy to announce that we’ve released a new website evaluation tool, free for everyone to try out! While many business owners today know how important having a good website is, it isn’t always easy to assess how secure and optimized for search engines your site is. Now, with our new website evaluation tool, you can!
 
Just enter your website URL in the text box and click on the Start Evaluation button and you’ll get an evaluation on your site in minutes! With our website evaluation tool, it’ll look at:
  • SSL certificate: without one, users will probably encounter an error page that encourages them to leave your site.
  • Mobile friendliness:if your site doesn’t look good on all devices (including mobile devices), search engines won’t make it as easy for users to find via search.
  • Title tag: having a title tag is vital to good SEO, which affects how search engines populate your site in their search results.
  • Meta tag: a website without a meta tag doesn’t look good in search results, making it less likely people will click on it.
  • Header tags: headings won’t just make your content look nicer to users, they’ll also help with your site’s SEO.
  • Sitemap: a file that lists all your website’s pages and how they relate to each other and another influential factor in SEO.
  • Page load time: if your site takes too long to load, search engines will rank it lower in the search results.
  • Image alt attribute: another SEO factor that tells the “why” of an image and is an important accessibility feature.
Check out our new free website evaluation tool by going to our Web Design page to try it out for yourself! If you want to know more about how to fix any issues your site may have, enter your email in the text box below and you'll receive your diagnostic results with more information.

What Every Successful Website Needs

thread
What Every Successful Website...
Every website is different in what it looks like, what it offers, and its overall purpose, but a good website has several key qualities that will distinguish it from a poor site. For a business, a good website is vital to its success as it helps establish credibility, build trust, increase brand awareness, improve its customer experience, and keep the company competitive online.
 
A good website will attract more qualified visitors, keep people on your site for longer, give off a better impression on potential customers, and drive conversions like an increase in signups, readership, and sales. To do well online, a website needs to be secure and possess certain characteristics that every website needs to thrive online. While there are many types of websites (i.e. blogs, portfolio sites, business websites, etc.) available, they will all still need some of the same features needed to succeed.
 

Essential Features of a Good Website

man on laptop
 
Having a secure website is vital to attracting users to your website, not just to protect users while browsing, but also to prevent them from encountering error messages. The easiest way to do that is to have an SSL certificate for your site, which will guarantee users’ data is safe when they’re online. Without one, they’ll run into a page that informs them the connection is not secure and not private, and it will recommend users go “back to safety”.
 
While having a secure site is a start, other essential features include:
  • Mobile friendliness: how well a website looks on a mobile device. An easy way to make sure your website works and looks great on all devices (including mobile devices) is by using responsive design practices.
  • Search engine optimization: elements that affect how search engines rank your website in its search results.
    • Page titles: the title of a web page.
    • Meta tags: an HTML code snippet with information about a website.
    • Alt tags on images: read-aloud text for users that conveys the “why” of images that search engines index to determine your site’s search ranking.
    • Header tags: HTML tags that separate headings and subheadings on a webpage.
    • Title tag: an HTML tag that defines a web page’s title.
    • Sitemap: a file that lists all of a website’s pages and how they relate to each other.
    • Page load time: how long it takes for a page to load. The longer it takes, the lower search engines will rank your site.
    • Backlinks: a link on your website that links to another website.
    • No broken links: If a link on your website doesn’t properly link to another web page, search engines will rank your site lower in the search results.
  • Clear calls-to-action (CTAs): a direct instruction on what you want users to do on your website. Without CTAs, website visitors won’t do anything on your site, which is a missed opportunity to convert them into customers.
  • Easy and helpful navigation: a menu of buttons and links that let users explore your website. Making it easy will lessen the possibility of users getting frustrated.
  • Fresh, high-quality content: new or updated content on your website will result in a more favorable search ranking, and exceptional content will encourage users to not just come and stay on your site, but it will also encourage them to come back.
  • Strong brand identity: A website is just another opportunity to create a cohesive brand identity with your company logo, color scheme, types of graphics, tone of voice, and brand messaging.
 
If you’re not sure how well your website fares or if it needs an update, check out our new free website evaluation tool that will help you assess your website at a basic level in just minutes. Just check out our Web Design page to try it out for yourself!
