Scranton, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

Otreva Designs, a Pennsylvania website design company, launched two responsive websites in the first quarter of 2012 helping clients reach visitors on all types of devices including smartphones and tablets. The first website was for the Pennsylvania car accident lawyers of Dougherty, Leventhal and Price. The second was for Vitamin Partners, an online health supplement store that specializes in healthcare practitioner brands of popular supplements.

Otreva Designs specializes in designing responsive websites that automatically adjust to a device’s width. Responsive web designs adapt automatically to the device's width they are being displayed on using CSS3 media queries. A smartphone screen is normally around only 320 pixels wide while a desktop screen can be 1440 pixels or more. At over 4.5x the size of a normal smartphone, the desktop screen can support much more content than a smartphone. However with a responsive web design, designers can plan for these differences in size and display the content based on need. This eliminates excessive resizing, panning and scrolling as well as accidental clicks on incorrect web page links when using a smartphone. “Responsive web design is a great solution for many websites owners who want to ensure their visitors have a great experience no matter what device they’re using,” says lead responsive designer Mike Averto. “However it isn’t a complete replacement for a mobile application. Until frameworks like Sencha Touch can compete with all the native features of devices like smartphones, native mobile applications cannot be completely replaced.”

35% of all American adults have a smartphone and some 87% of these owners have access to the internet from their device according to Pew Internet. When asked what device these adults normally use to access the internet, 25% of the smartphone owners said that they mostly go online using their phone, rather than with a computer.

Chatwing Chosen as Top Mashup

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

Programmableweb.com is full of nice and trendy web applications to offer. It is considered as a directory of helpful applications, visited by hundreds and thousands of users daily.

Adding to that, the users can select from a wide array of avatars. Emoticons are also available to spice up any conversation.

Chatwing can even be installed to blogs to increase their rate of visibility. It has been proven that blogs with Chatwing had moderate to high visibility in just under a week prior to installation. This simply proves that website chat entices a lot of visitors. Enticed visitors have large tendencies to return to entertaining websites.

There are many chat sites out there that offered the same functions with Chatwing. However, they have lower rates for connection and their installation mechanics are somehow complicated. For new users who want to discover the Chatwing potential, the Chatwing Facebook blog is constantly rigged with updates.

Free Chat for any Site

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

People love to engage in entertaining chat every now and then. This is true, especially for people who spend a lot of time in the Internet. There are many things to talk about in every chatroom. In fact, most chatrooms are sorted into categories so that people can find them easily. The Chatwing application is dedicated to the pursuit of a whole new chatting experience. This chat application is known for its simplicity and high rate of global connection.

One of the best things about Chatwing is the capability to leverage Facebook. Here, users can log in using their Facebook accounts. This simply means an easy exchange of personal information. A user can just click another user’s logged in name, and he can now send invitation through Facebook.

Chatwing is a free chat widget. This is unlike other applications with initial subscription fees and hidden fees. People are skeptical to pay dollars for some applications that won’t generate enough connectivity. Ever since its inception, Chatwing has already operated on the freemium business model for chats. Its developers believed that people can get more out of free programs.

Most users of Chatwing are active bloggers. They saw the potential of Chatwing in their blogs. After embedding Chatwing, their blog’s visibility reached an immediate spike of about 80%. This happened within the first week of Chatwing usage. This simply means that visitors always love to talk to each other and perhaps communicate with the blogger. It also helped a lot for those blogs delving in sensational topics.

Many people are also interested in website chat. Through the Chatwing chat box, they can make new friends and learn new things. Bloggers who want to explore Chatwing can visit its homepage or Facebook page. The Chatwing blog is also updated every now and then.

Iddin is Random Chat

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

Dates and date seekers are common in the cyberspace today. People seek dates because they want to have future love interests, or just for the fun of it. Others want to have new friends and acquaintances. Iddin’s live web chat is all about global connection. This application is a great help for those who spend a lot of time looking for dates.

Iddin Live is not just the average chat software. It specializes in privacy protection, so that chatters will feel more secured and protected. Iddin lets people chat randomly, and they are not coerced into giving their personal information such as email addresses and Facebook accounts. However, this is optional. Users can still upload their pictures and share their profile information.

Random chat has been around for quite some time already. However, many people underestimated its true nature. They believe that random chat does not foster new relationships. Contrary to popular belief, people can find new friends and love interests through random chat. This is the specialty of Iddin. Once a person chats without doubts of his privacy safety, he can connect to people easily. He can crack jokes over the chatroom and naturally find a date worth seeking.

Using Iddin is really easy. First, the user must determine which country the stranger will come from. He can also pick the USA option—the application will now search for strangers coming from US. If the stranger wants to chat online quickly, he can go for the ‘Anybody’ option. Now, Iddin will search for a stranger from different parts of the world. Iddin will connect the user to the first stranger that it can find.

Some people who used Iddin in its early release realized that the potential for global connectivity is high. A person who spends long hours in Iddin can find new connections with ease. If ever there are bugs, Iddin users can send email queries anytime.

About Iddin

Iddin is a free chat web application that specializes in generating random chat with strangers. Users can choose the locations of the strangers, or they can have the engine to search the whole world. Random chat is encouraged to protect the identity of people and also to empower spontaneous connection that is fun and interesting. Users can visit http://www.iddin.com to discover its features.

Fun Chat Time with Iddin

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

Chatting is one of the main ways on how to find a date. This is the reason why there are many chat applications created and chatrooms are sorted according to topics and basic interests. Iddin, a random web chat application, focuses on spontaneous chat while protecting the privacy of the user. Iddin also has an improved rate of connectivity compared to other applications specializing on random chat.

Iddin specializes on the niche of random chatting. Random chatting is considered spontaneous because the chatter can meet different people within a span of time. Through Iddin, a person can chat with any stranger from different parts of the world. Once the location has been configured, Iddin will connect the chatter in just few seconds.

Date finding is common in Iddin. Since it is a chatroom, many people are looking for new friends or love interests. It has also been proven that Iddin Live has a more challenging ground compared to other chat applications. Without personal information, the chatter has to carefully select his words, or the stranger may leave him. Become too rude and the chance will go to waste. Become too boring, and the stranger will look for other conversations to begin with. Iddin, basically, is IM chat with a twist.

Using Iddin is easier compared to other applications that require clients or programs to be downloaded. The user must select from three key options: specific country, anybody from the USA, or anybody. The ‘Anybody’ option renders the engine to search for a stranger from any part of the world. It will zero in to the next location that it can find.

Today, many people chat online with Iddin Live because of the thrill that it can bring. For more information, new users can always visit the Iddin website. In case of bugs, users can email the Iddin staff and their queries will be answered.

Making Money Online and Running Online Businesses

Discuss the purchase or sale of a website

Quote startOur forum is the single largest source of unbiased information on buying and selling online businesses.Quote end

Southgate, London (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

Experienced-People.net is merging with the business forum FlippingPlanet.com, consolidating its position as the premier one-stop shop for entrepreneurs wishing to discuss – and learn about – buying and selling online businesses.

The non-profit forum at Experienced-People.net is where buyers, sellers, brokers, and other professionals congregate to exchange ideas, share knowledge of current industry practices, and make business contacts. The only other comparable location of note was at FlippingPlanet.com, a community focused upon flipping (purchase—improvement—resale) of online businesses. In April 2012, the two forums will merge at Experienced-People.net to create a unified resource for entrepreneurs seeking to sell their businesses, for investors looking to make acquisitions, and for business professionals to learn about opportunities in buying, selling, and improving websites, blogs and other online properties.

Clinton Lee, owner of the Experienced-People.net forum, explains: “When we started Experienced-People.net as a non-profit forum a little over two years ago, it quickly became the single largest concentration of professionals on website purchasing, sales, and improvement. Our members cover the whole world and the whole gamut of online business expertise.

“Our competitors either shut down or gradually faded away. FlippingPlanet.com remained the only other discerning forum with intelligent discourse built around this subject. This content and community is now being merged into Experienced-People.net, adding to our already significant body of knowledge.”

Lee points out that Internet businesses continue to prosper despite the current bleak global economic climate. Business owners and experienced investors are aware that established online businesses have great value, are resilient enough to survive when local brick and mortar business cannot, and maintain consistent profitability better than offline stores. They also recognize that acquisition of an online business is one of the quickest routes to growth. As a result, interest in buying online businesses is increasing exponentially. Astute owners of high-traffic websites are cashing in on the demand and selling their websites, blogs, mailing lists, apps and other online assets, while even more are entering new markets to expand their reach and capture market share. Experienced-People.net helps them keep abreast of latest developments with their fellow industry leaders.

But what of the less astute newcomers? “They need look no further than Experienced-People.net,” says Lee. “Everything the online entrepreneur needs to expand their knowledge is now under one roof, at one web location, for an international audience. This will be of enormous benefit to the industry and all its players.

“And, best of all, it's free to the end user – free to join, and free from advertising and sponsorship. We believe it's the only way to be absolutely sure of unbiased integrity in all our online discussions.”

About Experienced-People.net:

The non-profit forums at Experienced-People.net are the single, primary resource for discussion of building, purchase, and sales of online business. It is a spin off from the original information only online business site. Run by volunteers, the site helps entrepreneurs seeking to sell their businesses, investors looking to make acquisitions, business professionals expanding their operations, and those seeking help in understanding available opportunities to make money online. Access to information and astute discussion between experienced businesspeople across global industries is free to registered members, with no charges for premium content. The discussion forums do not even display advertising, so as not to bias discussion and opinion.

Some of the main subjects of discussion at Experienced-People.net:

  • How to find potential online businesses for acquisition
  • Conducting due diligence on websites prior to purchase
  • Valuation of various websites, including ecommerce sites and blogs
  • The main marketplaces, and how best to use them
  • Contracts and legal concerns for both buyers and sellers
  • The best ways to effectively buy or sell an online business
  • Monetization methods, how websites make money, various online business models
  • Completing transactions safely, including transfer of virtual property and intellectual property rights

Experienced-People.net was founded in January 2010 and is the premier online community for discussion on buying and selling online businesses.

Iddin for Everyone

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 10, 2012

Random web chat has been one of the interesting pastimes of chatters today. In a random chat, strangers can create new identities; they are not forced to give their personal information, which is considered a risky move in the cyberspace. The developers of Iddin understand this specific need for privacy. That is why they upgraded the global connectivity level of Iddin.

Iddin’s latest release features an improved global chat function. Now, the user can select from three connectivity options: specific country, anybody from the USA, or anybody. The ‘Anybody’ option is the largest scale of search because the application searches for a stranger in different parts of the world. Everyday, it has been estimated that Iddin has over one hundred thousand online users. This makes Iddin a powerful application with simultaneous random chats occurring.

Iddin users can still give their personal information to strangers, but it is their call. This move is not encouraged by Iddin. However, users still have the option to upload their pictures. According to statistics, Iddin chatters with uploaded pictures have higher tendencies to make new friends. Some chatters also referred to Iddin as an online speed dating application, minus the subscription fees. This applies well to people who spend a lot of time doing IM chat.

Any topic can also be talked about in the Iddin chatroom. Famous topics are trends, fashion, PC games, technology, relationships, sex, and humor. In case bugs or glitches appear, users can send email queries to the Iddin staff. New users can visit the Iddin website to learn more about its specific features.

About Iddin

Iddin is a free web application that specializes in generating random chat with strangers. Users can choose the locations of the strangers, or they can have the engine to search the whole world. Random chat is encouraged to protect the identity of people and also to empower spontaneous connection that is fun and interesting. Users can visit http://www.iddin.com to discover its features.

Recognizing that the world is rapidly moving to an all smart-phone environment, Fishnfools.com has poised itself for the future with its new I-phone app. Now, the members at Fishnfools.com can take that photo while still fishing and post it to the site or boast to their friends and fellow members in the forums right on the spot when they catch that big fish. CEO Garry Cooper states, “We are relatively new in the market, but we are not going to play the ‘catch-up’ game, we plan to lead in technology and utility for out members and are here for the long haul”.

Fishnfools.com has also added a new forums platform that includes every feature now available in any modern forum platform along with social network features rarely found on fishing websites. The site has added a ‘reviews’ feature that will allow its users to grade various fishing products easily, further enhancing the value of the site to its members. The photo and media portion of the site has also been enhanced to allow more utility, easier management, and higher resolution of its content.

Although only launched at the first of the year, Fishnfools.com has already gained widespread acceptance as a site made for the fishing community, by real fishermen and women. Its article content has been consistently ranking on page one of Google. Cooper says his firm’s spring fishing season marketing plan is just kicking in and he plans to grow the site’s membership by thousands in the next few months. The site is free to join and easy to use and plans are place to implement ‘fantasy fishing tournaments’ into the mix to add more value, utility, and entertainment into the site.

CEO Cooper wants to invite all in the fishing world to come visit the site and rub shoulders with our fellow fishermen and women. He also encourages feedback and communication with management as he states “We want to be our member’s site, not ours. When our members talk, we listen. They wanted phone apps and better forums and here they are!” Cooper says they are now working on an android app, which should be out soon, along with some other useful features that will greatly enhance the site.

Erie, Penna. (PRWEB) April 10, 2012

Widely recognized as having the largest selection of engineered plumbing products in the world, Zurn Industries, LLC has just made their line even more accessible with the launch of a fully redesigned website. The new Zurn.com has evolved from a sales tool to an information hub that displays paired performance or “bundled product packages,” creating a total building solution to fit the needs of each customer segment.

A user-friendly experience guides customers through the extensive line of Zurn products and packages, delivering solutions to meet the customer’s end goal. Its unique, dual-browsing design enables a contractor to search by product type for a specific retrofit project, or allows an architect to search total building solutions for a large-scale facility design.

“We designed Zurn.com by vertical market, making the presentation of our industry-specific products and the overall site more user-friendly,” says Rachael Wiley-Steffen, Director of Brand Marketing for Zurn Industries. “This allows our customers to easily navigate and understand the breadth of our products and their applications.”

Through the product bundling strategy, Zurn is able to increase its value for customers who can now conveniently organize their specifications for either a single Zurn package or a total building solutions package from a single source.

In addition, a robust search function allows users to quickly find what they need by entering key words or part numbers. Individual product pages boast additional features, such as BIM/3D models, related case studies, news releases, and informational videos offering a deeper look at each product. Users will also be pleased to find an expanded “What’s New” area, a section dedicated to promoting Zurn’s mission of sustainability, and a global sales representative location tool. Included in the design is an enhanced “Tools & Resources” page delivering access to a broader BIM/3D library, technical product knowledge, AIA Continuing Education and more. Zurn is continuing to invest in additional value-added features with further functionality, offering an even richer user experience throughout the life of the site.

“We’ve taken the time to predict the needs of our customers through their search and purchase habits,” says Wiley-Steffen. “Our vision is to really focus on those needs and offer a more streamlined navigation through our site and an improved overall experience with Zurn.”
