rfp-robotRFP ROBOT: Website Request for Proposal Generator

The time has come for a new website (or website redesign), which means you need to write a website request for proposal or web RFP. A Google search produces a few examples, but they vary wildly and don’t seem to speak really to your goals for developing or redesigning a new website. You need to write a website RFP that will clearly articulate your needs and generate responses from the best website designers and developers out there. But how?

Have no fear, RFP Robot is here. He will walk you through a step-by-step process to help you work through the details of your project and create a PDF formatted website design RFP that will provide the information vendors need to write an accurate bid. RFP Robot will tell you what info you should include, point out pitfalls, and give examples.


Jay L.ee: Drupal Logout Message

I recently noticed in Drupal that although there are modules that let you display login messages such as “Log in successful for @username.” (LoginToboggan) or “Welcome back, @username.” (Persistent Login), there’s no easy way to display logout messages. So after doing some research, I found a patch for Drupal 7 that I just updated to work on the recently released Drupal 7.50. Let’s take a quick look at the simple code changes in the modules/user/user.pages.inc file (lines 194 – 214): 1) Before: /** * Menu callback; logs the current user out, and redirects to the home page. */ function user_logout() { user_logout_current_user(); drupal_goto(); }Tags: Drupal 7Drupal Planet Source: Drupal Aggregator

It’s OK to be pragmatic (with a little help from the “crazy ones”)

Being pragmatic is engrained in me. I’m at my best being practical and boring.This has mostly been a good thing for me.I’m good at weighing options and making decisions. Strategic and tactical planning come very naturally to me. I use my time wisely and like shipping.But it also comes with some pretty big trade-offs.I’m not a visionary or a dreamer, so it’s difficult for me to inspire others. I’m not great at conceptualizing ideas without a concrete goal in mind. I struggle to break from established conventions.In Steve Jobs’ words, I’m definitely not one of “The Crazy Ones”.Here’s the problem — experience has taught me that you’ll never do your best work through sheer pragmatism alone.https://medium.com/media/6fb8ec294921316f24c5cb6b02985e5d/hrefWhat you’re good at and what’s good for you aren’t always the same thing.The incremental, risk-averse nature of being pragmatic can be good for many aspects day to day of work.But to make long-term, deep progress in your professional growth, you need to…

Instagram and Depression

This doesn’t surprise me one single bit (via MIT): Your mental health is reflected in the images you choose to post on social media, say researchers who have trained a machine to spot depression on Instagram. And this shouldn’t either: The researchers found that depressed individuals tend to post images that are bluer, grayer, and darker, and receive fewer likes, than those posted by heathy individuals. So, what’s the point? I think the last sentence nails it: And that will provide hope that mental illness can be accurately detected earlier, allowing for more effective intervention. If we can all do a better job of observing the behavior of others, especially those most close to us and those that we care about, we can better serve their needs and give them the encouragement and support that they need the most. The missing ingredient, though, isn’t technology mind you; it’s courage. It’s…

Trust Falls Are Lame: 7 Practical Tips for Building Team Relationships

Inflexible, controlling, process-oriented. These are just a few of the stereotypes that project managers frequently face. Dealing with these stereotypes can make every project feel like an uphill battle but it doesn’t have to be that way. Every time you interact with a team member is an opportunity to prove the stereotypes wrong.  Though there are many variables in a project that we can’t control, there are many that we can control! By focusing on building relationships, improving your communication skills, and creating a positive experience on projects, you can break down those stereotypes and improve your ability to work with your team. There are a few tips I’ve learned over the years that have helped me continue to build trust and stronger communication with the internal team. This not only leads to more successful projects, but also to more fun and positive experiences all around—which shows in both the work…

ImageX Media: Do You Know Who Your Customers Are?

Previously in our blog, we discussed the five basics of content marketing. The first of these five basics of content marketing is understanding your audience. You can create all of the killer content you can, but if you don’t know who your audience is, what problems your business can solve for them, and where and how they’re consuming your content, then you risk it missing the mark entirely and falling into the internet’s ether.

So What Is Content Marketing? Traditional marketing methods of the past have become outdated as audiences have lost interest and become more savvy in tuning them out. From browser-based ad blockers to streaming content online, ads have been relegated to the periphery at best, leading to low conversion rates, decreased traffic, and a lower return on investment.
