SEMrush Review: Complete Digital Marketing Toolkit?

This SEMrush review discusses everything you need to know about the solution- it’s primary features and functionalities, plus pricing and overall usability. And to help you further, I’ll also throw in SEMrush’s weak points. Search engine optimization is not the easiest thing right now. Getting noticed by Google takes a considerable amount of resources, time and persistent efforts That’s why a good rank is always refreshingly satisfying. Breaking through to the first page of the search results alone places you in the category of sites attracting 75% of the organic clicks. And if you’re good enough for the first spot, the result is essentially 33% of the clicks. It almost feels like winning the lottery, right? But, let’s be honest here. Deep down you know that making it to that position is not the end game. Maintaining it is even harder since competition at the highest levels is usually extremely…

Top Free and Affordable Project Management Tools for Copywriters

Most copywriters don’t have the luxury of working on just one project at a time, so they have to be able to juggle multiple assignments at the same time. This is difficult for even the most seasoned writers, but a project management tool can make a huge difference in a copywriter’s organization, time management, and content output. Benefits of project management for copywriters In the shortest of terms, project management software is a tool that streamlines the planning, initiation, execution, completion, and review of all your various tasks and projects. Whereas you’d normally have to keep things like deadlines, client notes, ideas, pitches, and other copywriting mainstays in straight on your own, a project management tool effectively consolidates those processes and data into a single platform. Needless to say, a copywriter has much to grain from selecting a project management tool. But with so many options available, how do you choose…

Security Essentials for Site Developers and Admins

Of all tech topics, security is possibly the most complex, and certainly the most important. This is because security is always evolving. It is a forced evolution, as we must adapt to constantly emerging threats. There are various levels of security that we’ll have responsibility for. The first level is ourselves or the organization we work for. The second level is our clients. And the third level is the users of the websites or applications we develop for our clients. Despite our best efforts, clients will always find ways to undermine the protections we provide for them. They rely on us as IT professionals to help them stay safe, but paradoxically also rarely follow the safety advice we provide them with. Most users really are their own worst enemies. What we need to do, then, is make it as difficult as possible for clients to compromise their own security, while…
