How to Cash a Check If You Don’t Have a Checking Account

In addition, a total of 28.3% of Americans are either unbanked or underbanked, which means they rely on alternatives to banks for financial services like check cashing.

The One Who Writes

I remember all the times I started writing a book that I never finished. I thought I was serious. But not enough to set a certain time every day when I wrote. I could find time whenever right? Not so much. That never worked out… never. When I wrote my books for Packt, they sent me a schedule. The rough draft had a deadline. In fact, each chapter had a deadline along the way. And I kept that up. And I wrote the chapters in order, even the boring parts. Though I remember staring at my computer fo...

brand social purpose

Sometimes we marketers can climb so far up the brand ladder from functional benefits to emotional benefits to social benefits, we can lose touch with why people are buying our products in the first place. There is power in purpose-driven brands. And yet, when every piece of marketing attempts to communicate some kind of social purpose, social purpose can start to lose its meaning, particularly when purpose is left to the agency. A British soft drink brand called Oasis recently mocked the curr...

Using category and tag pages for SEO

We often encounter sites with category and tag structures which are completely unmanaged. Even large news sites can suffer from over usage of tags and categories. Tags and categories are both examples of a taxonomy system. When used correctly, a good taxonomy system can boost your site’s SEO. The opposite is also true: when used wrong, it’ll break things. This article dives into why those pages are so important and how to use them. We’ll use category archives as our prime example. Category arch...

People tend to connect to stories and, therefore, remember them and the message they convey. Tags:  customer journey mapping customer experience customer journey A...

Long untouchable, web giants now know what it feels like to be hunted | John Naughton

Governments, after years of indulgence, are rightly getting tough on social media sitesThe key question to ask when a shocking tragedy comes to light is this: does it signify a scandal or a crisis? Scandals happen all the time in societies. They generate a lot of heat, outrage and public angst.
