Remove.bg: Remove Image Backgrounds from Headshots, People, and Objects Flawlessly with AI

If you’re not following Joel Comm, do it. Now. Joel is one of my favorite resources for technology. He’s blunt, honest, and incredibly transparent.

OneSignal: Add Push Notifications by Desktop, App, or Email

Each month, I’d get a couple of thousand returning visitors through browser push notifications that we integrated. Unfortunately, the platform we chose is now shutting down so I had to find a new one. Worse, there’s no way of importing those old subscribers back to our site so we’re going to take a hit. For that reason, I needed to choose a platform that’s well-known and scalable. And I found it in OneSignal. Not only

Cloudwords: Global Marketing to Generate Demand and Drive Growth

In order for companies to generate demand and grow globally, they need to speak 12 languages to communicate with 80% of their target audiences.

However, companies that need to quickly translate their marketing materials and expand internationally are faced with a big challenge: their

The High Cost of Web Design Failures is Too Common

When you read these two statistics, you’re going to be shocked. More than 45% of all businesses don’t have a website. And of the DIY’s (Do-It-Yourselfers) that embark on building a site, 98% of them fail in publishing one at all. This doesn’t even count the number of businesses that have a website that simply isn’t driving leads… which I believe is another significant percentage. This infographic from Webydo pinpoints the major issue with failed
