Jetpack’s Picks: Five Resources for December

At the beginning of each month, we’ll round up five of our favorites links around the internet to help you better run your business or blog in the month ahead.

Get ready for a focused December with the help of these five useful resources.

Website Design Trends for 2017

Websites are crucial to any business, and are often the first thing clients or customers see. Website Magazine offers a few examples of the features you can expect from updated websites in 2017.

“Designers – and the brands that employ them – cannot have their head in the mud when it comes to the trends impacting user expectations and how visible their sites will be on the increasingly sophisticated search engine result pages. Rather, you should be productive and advocate for better design.”

10 Simple Editing Hacks for DIY Bloggers

“The last thing you want to do is publish a blog post that has errors or doesn’t read well. Remember, your content is representative of your business!”

The Tools That 5 Highly Productive Entrepreneurs Use

When you’re running your own startup, it can be tough to stay organized and on track. Entrepreneur’s Han-Gwon Lung shares exactly what you’ll need to keep up with other productive entrepreneurs.

“When I graduated from college, I had no work experience. And that didn’t sit too well with the real life that followed. I repeatedly messed up at work or fell behind schedule because I lacked good productivity habits. Before long, I realized I needed help. So I turned to productivity apps for answers.”

4 Helpful Tools for Organizing Your Social Media Calendar

Looking to streamline your social media content strategy? Hubspot’s Sophia Bernazzani rounds up four tools to make social media pros’ lives a little easier.

“What do cross-country road trips, wedding speeches, and social media marketing have in common? You could wing all three, but it’s probably better to have a plan for what direction you’re heading — especially when it comes to your social media content strategy.”
