Three Horizontal Lines + Responsive Websites = Navicon

I have had a bunch of clients who want to know what the three horizontal line icon is on their website when they look at it from their iPhone. Their main concerns are: "What is it?" and "Will people know what it means?" "WHAT IS IT?" The answers are, it is a symbol that represents "menu". If your entire menu was on a tiny screen, it would look really bad and would be very confusing. Using this symbol on smaller, responsive devices makes usability easier. "WILL PEOPLE KNOW WHAT IT MEANS"? Many people who use their mobile devices every day know what it means, and people who are starting to pick up on this new mobile symbol. I wouldn't worry too much about it, but if you feel very passionate, ask if there is a way to put the word MENU next to or in the icon itself. This symbol, and similar icons, are showing up in a lot of other places, including Twitter, Facebook and Microsoft responsive websites. Check out this article written by Jordan Moore written back in 2012 about the "Navicon".

Part 2: How to Get Side or Full-time Income from a website

(continued from part 1) 4. Decide on a hosting plan After you have decided which domain or set of domains you want to register from MyDomainMint.com, you need to decide what kind of hosting plan is going to work best for you. If you are small or medium sized business, we recommend you purchase the LINUX plan. There's no long term contract required, which is great. You can pay monthly, quarterly or annually. We recommend purchasing annually; you save a ton of money in the long run. A hosting company should be available 24/7 with a US phone number to contact. One of the reasons why we HIGHLY support MyDomainMint.com. Once you have chosen your domain names and hosting account, check out and SAVE YOUR INFO! They will give you a customer number, you'll choose a pin and remember your password! This is going to come in handy when you are ready to get your website done. 5. Decide what pages you want to have on your website You may want to get in touch with a professional web design company to bounce ideas off of them on what pages you want to have. Look at competition. Google other companies that may be doing something similar to you. What are they doing? What is the difference between you and them? Write down what pages you think would help YOU sell YOUR services. Many people have the following pages to start with: HOME ABOUT SERVICES CONTACT Some other pages that they add down the road, once they've been in business for a few months are: TESTIMONIALS PRESS You may be an actor who's got a completely different business model; selling YOURSELF! Pages you might have are: HOME BIO [...]

Part 1: How to Get Side or Full-time Income from a website

Work: You have it or you don't. Perhaps you're one of the lucky one's that do have work, but you're looking to balance your life with extra income, you're a business owner without a website who's looking to get more money in the door or you may not have work at all in this moment, but you're in need of money to take care of your bills, spouse, children, etc. You also may just be the kind of person that is looking for ways to make extra money just to have some extra money! Whatever the reason is, I've been working with people like yourself for a long time and I've learned a lot of things along the way that have helped a LOT of people and companies get more money in the door. I'd like to share with you some words of wisdom in the multi-part series: 1) Decide what you are good at or have access to. Do you have a product you make or sell? Could you reproduce them easily and quickly or custom make them for people? Do you have a personal service you could give to people over the phone or via email? A personal service you could do in person? A workshop you've always wanted to do? A class you've always wanted to teach? How about a tele-class (a class you teach over the phone to a bunch of people)? Think about what you are good at and what you have access to. Write down some notes about what you could be doing. 2) Create a business name. What kind of name could you give this new business idea? Think about your audience, the kind of people that would [...]
