And just as business needs developers who create React Native apps, in the same way, they also need a strong social media presence to get their business a vast reach. One of the many social media outlets we recommend to our client is Instagram. Instagram, for those of you who donʻt know, is a mobile application that allows you to take pictures, edit them, and post them online for others to see. We thought it would be good to share a few of the tips we share with our clients about having a successful and professional Instagram profile!
New Social Network to Use ONLY Emojis
What does it all mean???
According to Hawaii News Now, there is a new social network and mobile instant messaging app (iOs) for the emoji-savvy called of all things, emojli.

We <3 BaseCamp: 5 Reasons Why!
BasceCamp is a web-based project management software that we use every day to help us stay organized!
We use it for our projects, both old and new! The functionality allows us to not only track what we are doing, but bring in the client to see where progress is being made! We equate using the software to an email chain, with days and possibly months of back and forth, all spread out and organized for everyone without the hassle of remembering who was supposed to do what and when!
When developing new websites for our clients, we use WordPress. What we like about WordPress as a Content Management System (CMS) is that it puts the power in your hands! F0r the past 4+ years, weʻve suggested to clients that WordPress is the best CMS and we continue to do so because of its ease of use, simple user interface (UI), its ability to help support successful eMarketing, an easy infrastructure, built in search engine optimization (SEO), and much much more!
