ActiveRain University Presents Customizing Your ActiveRain Blog

Branding your image is one of the most important aspects of any business.  You need to have an image that depicts you and the business you are involved in.  Many sites require complex steps to customize a theme and make it the way you wish.  ActiveRain offers you a really great option on how to customize your blog to represent your image better.  Unfortunately, very few really master how to accomplish this.

Have you ever seen a blog on ActiveRain that looks like this?

What were they thinking?

I know I surely have.  While this type of theme might be acceptable on this network, it really doesn't convey a professional branding that you would wish to associate with your business.  On Friday March 19th at 11 AM EST (8 AM PST) I will be teaching at ActiveRain University on how to customize your your blog on ActiveRain.  This 1 hour webinar will cover the following:

  • Creating a Custom Header that has Pizazz.
  • Uploading a Header to your ActiveRain Blog & Outside Blog.
  • Customizing your ActiveRain Background to compliment your header.

Now, in case you were wondering why ActiveRain chose me to teach this class, let me show you a few examples of headers I have created in the past for clients:

Custom Header #3

And here are a few more examples of member blogs that I have customized:

These are just a few customizations on ActiveRain that I have done for clients in the past.  In this webinar, I will show you step by step how to take your blog customizations to the next level.
