The Wonders of Technology

Posted on September 12th, 2012 by Kris  |  Comments Off

So I am having a pretty crappy week from a technological stand point. My phone has developed these lovely black spots on the screen making it hard to read certain areas (and see the letters on Draw Something more importantly).
My internet has been spotty then finally straight up went out (I am currently tethered to [...]

Facebook Page Video Tutorials

Posted on August 23rd, 2012 by Kris  |  Comments Off

I have been doing a lot of “how to” posts, mostly focused on social networking, over at our blog for Nonprofit Marketing Guide.com. As you may remember, I am now the community engagement manager over there so I have not been able to blog too much over here. So sad, I know.
Anyway, I thought my readers could [...]

Virginia Judge Gets Facebook Ruling Wrong

Posted on May 9th, 2012 by Kris  |  Comments Off

I just read an article about a Virginia Judge who ruled that a sheriff had the right to fire an employee because that employee “liked” the sheriff’s political opponent’s Facebook page. In some states that would be a fireable offense, but Virginia law actually allows public employees to speak out on political matters because Virginia [...]

Happy 2nd Anniversary to Me!

Posted on May 4th, 2012 by Kris  |  Comments Off

Kristina Leroux.com has made it another 12 months. Yay me! Considering some statistics show 95% of online businesses fail in the first year, that makes me like 30 in Internet years or something.
Again, I want to give a big THANK YOU to my clients! I have the privilege of working with some of the best and most [...]

Forward Other Email Accounts to Gmail? Use This Lab!

Posted on April 11th, 2012 by Kris  |  Comments Off

I, as do many of my clients, have several different email addresses, but forward all of those emails to one Gmail account. Unfortunately, the fine folks at Gmail can sometimes take their sweet time checking for emails sent to those forwarded addresses. In some instances, Gmail has taken over an hour to check these accounts.
That’s [...]

Your Website’s “About” Page – Use the First Person

Posted on January 19th, 2012 by Kris  |  3 Comments »

A Facebook friend of mine posted a link to a new website a friend of theirs had recently launched, so I decided to check it out. (Ah, the power of social media) The home page looked pretty good so I decided to look around a bit more (always a good sign).
I should mention that this website [...]

Marketing for You – Get Your Priorities Straight

Posted on December 5th, 2011 by Kris  |  Comments Off

Howdy, strangers! I have recently come to a startling conclusion: I have not gotten a single client because of my Facebook page or LinkedIn profile. Nor have I gotten a single client due to a tweet or blog post. Not a one. All of my clients have come from either referrals and introductions from my [...]

Getting the Most Out of Facebook Pages

Posted on September 14th, 2011 by Kris  |  4 Comments »

*Note: I am going to use the word “brand” to mean your Facebook page (that thing on Facebook you set up for your organization) to help differentiate it from your personal Facebook profile (that thing on Facebook you use to play Farmville and wish your friends “happy birthday”). If you think the word “brand” is [...]

Back to School – uhhh, Work. (or Excuses, Excuses)

Posted on September 7th, 2011 by Kris  |  2 Comments »

How was your summer? Mine was pretty darned good, but I learned something about me and blogging. Despite having trouble keeping a consistent blogging schedule in general, things get really bad in the summer. Most times of the year, I at least think, “Oh. I need to write a blog post soon,” even if I [...]
