So of course everyone here watched the Super Bowl.
Great game, right (even though Brady’s game-ending Hail Mary fell short of being epic)? But what about the commercials? They were pretty killer this year and we took notice of the amount of humor that was used considering the current mood of the country. Maybe advertisers felt like we could all use a little comic relief during the Super Bowl this year. After all, it’s supposed to be fun, so why not, right?

People are always saying that they’re not creative.
But we say everyone is creative; it’s just a matter of how that creativity expresses itself. Maybe you’re amazing at throwing a recipe together out of a bunch of random things from the pantry, or maybe you can find a fast way to get just about anywhere, or maybe you’re a genius at solving math equations.
There are a bazillion ways to be creative!
We talk a lot on our blog about what we do, but we realized that we never talk about how we do what we do. So today, and maybe every so often from now on, we’ll give you a glimpse of what it’s like behind the scenes here at GLAD WORKS during the “doing” phases of your projects.
First, let’s talk about what happens when we design a website. It seems magical, doesn’t it? You come in here, you tell us what you want, and POOF! There’s a website.
“Whoa! That was AWESOME!” you say. “You guys are mmmmmaagical!”

Every once in a while I find FaceTime, Apple’s most excellent video call feature, to be very helpful. There are occasions when I just can’t get in the same room with a client, and FaceTime is a great alternative to just a phone call.
You hear it all the time, all over the place: SEO this and SEO that and you have to have good SEO! But what the heck does that even mean? And what does it mean to be “spiderable?”
Are we talking about websites or Arachnophobia here?
Before the holidays we talked about a few things that are going to be important to think about over the coming year as you formulate your business strategies. Perhaps the most important thing out of everything we discussed is going mobile. So now that we’ve eaten all our gingerbread cookies and sucked down the last of the eggnog, it’s time to think about all the ways you can generate some sales using mobile.
Mobile is on the upswing! The latest mobile statistics done by comScore reveal that over 70% of American mobile subscribers send texts, and over 40% use apps and/or browse the mobile web. As of August, 84.5 million people in the U.S. own smartphones—keep in mind that that number pre-dates the release of the latest iPhone from Apple. It also pre-dates the holidays that just passed. We’re sure that number has risen substantially since then, so the rise of smartphone usage cannot and should not be ignored by any business owner hoping to grow in the coming year.
This is one bus you cannot afford to miss, people.
