This is especially helpful if you are playing catch-up to more established competitors.
Why Use These Boosters?
Social Media Boosters by CompuGeaux allows you to increase your social media on various networks, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, SnapChat and more. This gives you an increased exposure on these networks and the over five billion active users that frequent it regularly. This increase in social media subscribers, likes, comments, shares and more should then be used with active social media management to better your overall web presence.
These boosters are just that, a booster. You should still have adequate social media management to continue to gain organic followers. A solid social media management plan is essential to begin after the booster in order to grow organic followers, subs, etc. If you need social media management, please consider CompuGeaux for that need, as well.
Getting the Most Out of Social Media Boosters
CompuGeaux has recently used the Social Media Boosters as part of a larger plan for local music artists to gain exposure. In addition to a digital music distribution package, Social Media Boosters helped these artists gain exposure on their YouTube, SoundCloud, Facebook and other social media platforms in order to push the artists music better. Within a short time, their videos were getting more views, likes, shares, subscribers and shares. This, in turn, made it possible to continue to grow organically afterwards, and the artists’ has have greater exposure at a much quicker rate.
This can also be done for businesses new to social media or those needing to increase their social media exposure. You can get more followers, more post likes, more comments,more shares or retweets, more views, etc. Coupled with a good social media management plan, this will lead to more organic growth and therefore… more opportunities at more money.

Did you know that more than 75% of Americans use social media? That is over 24 MILLION people. Businesses not using social media – and those not using it efficiently – are losing a chance at a great opportunity; one that can make your business hundreds of thousands of additional dollars. Is your business efficiently managing its social media presence?
Every business, large or small, needs a social media presence. It is an essential piece of every business’s marketing strategy. CompuGeaux will get you connected with the millions of social media users across the country. We will make your business more visible by taking your social media out of obscurity. With Social Media Management from CompuGeaux, you will better connect with your customers. This increased awareness about your brand leads to boost in your sales and ultimately your bottom line.
The first benefit of social media for business is its ability to generate organic brand awareness. As we know, a major component of building credibility comes from creating a brand identity. While other marketing materials, such as a website and business cards, have been the go-to items for new businesses, social media should be added to the roster.
Social media allows a business to share its brand across various platforms and create a consistent and unified look, feel, and voice. This consistency is the foundation for a reputable brand and business. By using the same logo, brand colors, bio descriptions, and links to your business website, you create an authentic online presence.
Stellar Customer Service
In a world where customers expect white glove experiences, social media is a wonderful avenue for delivering on those demands. Since social media is all about interaction and dialogues. it’s a natural place to surprise and delight your potential and actual customers. Social media profiles allow businesses to communicate, proactively or reactively, to their followers in real-time.
When followers comment or pose questions and a brand responds in a timely and knowledgeable way, it conveys the business’s dedication to customer satisfaction and experience. This kind of engagement goes a long way in fostering loyalty and solidifying a positive impression in your followers’ minds.
Low-Cost Way to Acquire Leads
By investing some time into understanding your target audience and tailoring your posts, aesthetic, and even platform presence, a business can quickly grow its following and create a captive audience. Take cues from your competitors and distinguish your brand from the competition.
Once you’ve honed your social media branding, your follower base will grow and be full of potential customers. How do you know they’re prospective leads? They’ve opted-in to follow your business; this means they’re interested in what you have to offer! What better way to cultivate the right customers than through social media? Systematize your social media efforts to give your audience what they want and save your business hours of time by employing automation tools.
Increase Website Traffic and Search Ranking
Another benefit of social media for business is its direct impact on website traffic and search ranking. On social media profiles, businesses can list their website URLs, so a visitor needs to look no further than above the fold to find a website link.
Beyond the bio section of a social media account, actual social media posts afford opportunities to add more links to your business website. The most effective Twitter posts include an image, caption, and URL. The visual, relevant caption, and inserted link all serve to get a person to take a specific action (i.e. visit the website). The more URL clicks, the more website visits a business gets. It’s a winning formula that applies to every other social media platform.
Interestingly, social media also affects your search ranking. When your social post links to your website or blog content, those links help search engines discern that your website is reputable and should rank for specific keywords. As we know, Google’s algorithm is continually evolving to weed out spam websites and appropriately rank websites that are legitimate. By incorporating social media into your marketing strategy, you can positively influence your search ranking without being a search engine optimization guru.

Tired of paying hundreds of dollars a year for yesterday’s phone service? Ready to jump into the future and save money on your phone service? CompuGeaux’s got you covered with our new CompuTalk Internet Phone Service – CompuGeaux’s new VOIP service.
VOIP is short for Voice Over Internet Protocol. It also also known as Internet telephony, broadband telephony, and broadband phone service. Simply put, this means that you use your internet connection rather than the outdated, substandard phone service that was invented in the 19th Century by Alexander Graham Bell. Ironically, that traditional services is known as POTS – Plain Old Telephone Service.
CompuTalk by CompuGeaux makes the once complex world of internet phone service simple. You order our service, and a Certified Internet Phone Service Technician comes to your location and installs an internet phone adapter which allows you to connect your current phone to the network. The technician will then set-up your account, which includes a free Google Voice account. After the account set-up is complete, the tech will plug your phone into the adapter and you will be ready to make calls using your new broadband internet phone service. It’s that simple! You simply pick up your phone and dial out as you always have. Welcome to the future!

3-way Conference Calls
Free Voicemail that acts like email – You can have your voice messages transcribed and sent directly to your inbox or sent to your phone as a text message.

CompuTalk+ will match what you say with your Google Contacts and –when you confirm the match –automatically dial the number.
Business 411 Connect (Dial **) – Just dial the star button two times (**) and say the name and approximate location of the business. E.g. ‘True Value Hardware on Main Street.’ The OBi will provide relevant options from which you can choose and automatically call to the listing you choose.
Custom Call Blocking (Dial *86) – Stop nuisance calls in their tracks with Custom Call Blocking. You can enter numbers for callers who you know in advance you do not want to receive calls from, or after you hang-up with the unwanted caller, by just dialing star 86 (*86) to place that number in the Blocked Callers list.
So how much does all this cost anyway? I mean, emerging technology like this has to be expensive, right?
Wrong. our basic plan, including the service, the adapter, installation and pro set-up, starts at only $100! And best of all, there is no monthly fee for the basic service! Never pay another dime for your phone service! EVER!

Does your club, organization or association need a hosted website designed and developed with it’s very own forums for discussion? With CompuGeaux, we can get your organization or club on the web in no time with the CompuGeaux Community Building Package. Build your group into a Community with a blogging website and forums, plus optional add-ons to complete your Community website!
The Community Building Package from CompuGeaux comes with a WordPress web site designed and hosted by CompuGeaux. We use WordPress because it is the most popular Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites. Organizations, companies and even individuals use WordPress due to its ease of use and its powerful, flexible and simple interface. With its responsive design and easy blogging platform, WordPress holds the largest CMS market share by far, and currently accounts for over a quarter of all websites.
Internet Forums are online discussion sites where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. They differ from chat rooms in that messages are often longer than one line of text, and are at least temporarily archived. Also, depending on the access level of a user or the forum set-up, a posted message might need to be approved by a moderator before it becomes visible. It is hierarchical or tree-like in structure: a forum can contain a number of sub-forums, each of which may have several topics. Within a forum’s topic, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by as many people as so wish. Depending on the forum’s settings, users can have to register with the forum and then subsequently log in in order to post messages.
In addition to the WordPress website and blogging platform, the CompuGeaux Community Building Package comes with the installations of a forum. In these online discussion boards, members of your club, organization, or association can ask questions, share their experiences, and discuss topics of mutual interest. They are an excellent way to create social connections and a sense of community. Use the Forums application to start discussions about a specific topic or to debate solutions to shared problems. By participating in a forum, you can exchange ideas and use the expertise of people in your organization.
Best of all, CompuGeaux offers you a selection of six different forum applications (in case you have a preference in what forums application you prefer to use). They include:
Simple Machines – This is the default forum application installed into the CompuGeaux Community Building Package. It is professional grade software package that allows you to set up your own online community. Its powerful custom made template engine puts you in full control of the lay-out of your message board and it provides you with all the features you need from a bulletin board while having an absolute minimal impact on the resources of the server. It is the preferred forum application program of CompuGeaux because of its ease of use, awesome customization and features.
phpBB – Millions of people use phpBB on a daily basis, making it the most widely used open source bulletin board system in the world. Whether you want to stay in touch with a small group of friends or are looking to set up a large multi-category board for a corporate website, phpBB has the features you need built-in. Newer users will appreciate phpBB’s extensive administration panel, which allows the customization of even the most intricate features without having to edit code directly while advanced users will value the ease with which phpBB can be integrated into existing systems. phpBB also have a working demo for prospective user to try their software.
FluxBB – FluxBB is a popular lightweight forum application, powering forums for Arch Linux and μTorrent. It is a fast, light, user-friendly forum software for your website. FluxBB was conceived and designed to be fast and light with less of the “not so essential” features that some of the other forums have whilst not sacrificing essential functionality or usability. It is designed as a lighter, faster alternative to some of the traditional feature heavy forum applications. It is easy to use and has a proven track record of stability and security making it an ideal choice of forum for your website.
Vanilla Forums – Initially released in 2006, Vanilla Forums powers discussion on over 500,000 sites. Vanilla has reinvented forums and offers a modern user experience that your customers have come to expect. In addition to standard discussions, Vanilla allows users to post questions and polls. Like most of Vanilla’s features, these discussion types can be turned on or off in the Admin Dashboard. Members can format posts with html, markdown, or bbcode. Images can be dragged and dropped and videos are automatically embedded. Check out their introduction video.
myBB – MyBB powers hundreds of thousands of engaging, powerful, and unique communities across the internet. Extremely easy to use, much thought has gone into MyBB’s interface to make it simple, intuitive, and an absolute joy to use. It offers powerful moderation and administration features to keep your forum in tip-top shape, just the way you like it. With an extensive range of plugins and a built-in theme and template editor, adding new features or an entirely new coat of paint is simple. MyBB features everything you need to run an efficient and captivating community.
XMB Forum – XMB stands for Extreme Message Board, and it is powerful forum software, quite complete, with themes, modifications, and support of a good community. It provides all the basic tools you need to get started. You can edit administration settings, templates, add/remove topics, and member settings. There are other tools available, but for the most part, nothing too complex, just your forum basics. Great for beginners. Check out the demo at Softaculous.
In addition to the base package, CompuGeaux offers numerous add-ons to make your CompuGeaux Community Building Package more complete. These include software options such as Contacts Relationship Management (CRM) platforms that can be used as a way to keep all your members information. The key features of a CRM system typically include contact management functionality, dashboard-style presentation of information, and reports that analyse member activity, along with communication tools such as integrated email and internal instant messaging.
Additional optional add-ons include “Craigslist-style” classified advertisement applications in order to offer your association’s members a place to buy, sell and trade items like the demo page you can see here.

In July 2018, Google released an update to it’s popular Chrome browser. It is estimated that 60% of internet users are using the Chrome for their regular browsing. This means, 60% of the people visiting your site will get the impression that it is not a secure website as their first impression. Is that the type of first impression you really want to make?
A Not Secure label on your website can devastate your business. If your website does not run HTTPS by default, your visitors will begin to see a flag next to your domain name at the top address bar of the Google Chrome 68 browser showing that your website is not secure. Once they make the jump, other browsers will also begin to follow.
Part of the HTTPS Everywhere movement, internet browser Mozilla Firefox has already openly stated with Google that their intent is to make HTTPS the new minimum. As an example, in January 2017, Firefox implemented a policy that began marking form elements on HTTP sites as insecure, and they warn users that any login information could become compromised.
Get serious about data security and get the little green lock that shows visitors that you’re secure. CompuGeaux has partnered with GoDaddy and a number of other technology companies to provide custom SSL/HTTPS solutions for your business and website.
The new requirements might not sound like a big deal for website owners that do not process payments or ask for information, but all websites should have HTTPS encryption and every website can benefit from an SSL certificate.
If you do not currently have an SSL certificate installed on your site, you are already missing Google’s automatic search ranking boost from back in 2014. In addition, Google de-prioritizes HTTP sites. With an SSL certificate installed, your site will have access to powerful API tools that users have come to expect in responsive websites, such as geolocation and audio/video streaming.
If that was not enough motivation, SSL certificates also unlock a significant performance boost by allowing your site to operate over HTTP/2, which by itself has the capability to improve your load times by up to 40 percent!
Today, visitors look for green locks on their address bars to feel secure before giving trust to a site. An SSL certificate shows legitimacy and professionalism by ensuring your users feel protected while browsing. No website is too small. No data is worthless. With Google Chrome 68, it will matter. Installing an SSL certificate could not be easier with the number of options CompuGeaux has for getting the job done.

Net neutrality is dead. You’ve seen it plastered all over the internet and the news. But what does that mean to you?
What is Net Neutrality?
In a nutshell, net neutrality is the principle that Internet service providers should enable access to all content and applications regardless of the source, and without favoring or blocking particular products or websites. When you go online you expect to be connected to whatever website you want. You expect that your cable or phone company isn’t messing with the data and is connecting you to all websites, applications and content you choose. You expect to be in control of your internet experience.
When you use the internet you expect Net Neutrality. It is, simply, the way that the internet has always worked. Without the Net Neutrality rules, companies like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon are now able to call all the shots and decide which websites, content and applications succeed.
These companies can now slow down their competitors’ content or block political opinions they disagree with. They can charge extra fees to the few content companies that can afford to pay for preferential treatment — relegating everyone else to a slower tier of service.
What’s worse, your internet service provider (ISP) – the company you pay to get internet service, can now sell all of your information, including your internet browsing history to anyone they want.
That’s right. Everything you now use the internet for can be sold by your ISP. Think about what you do on the internet. Browsing? Your history can be sold to the highest bidder. E-Mail? Same. Using an application? Yup. That can be sold, as well. Basically, whatever you do on the internet can now be sold for billions of dollars by the company you already pay for internet access. So what can you do in order to secure your privacy?
Virtual Private Networks Are the Answer
At this point it’s safe to say that the future of the internet is not looking too promising when it comes to individual freedoms and rights. Most importantly, though, is the loss of privacy. While the internet may have once been a place where the free flow of information was paramount, it is slowly being taken over by corporate interests. The notion of a free and open internet will soon be forgotten, to be replaced with something that can be controlled at many different levels. So how do you combat this? The answer is simple, you get a VPN.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is software that is used as a method employing encryption to provide secure access to a remote computer over the Internet. It extends a private network across a public network, and enables users to send and receive data across shared or public networks as if their computing devices were directly connected to the private network. It is the most secure way to connect to the internet without risking your online identity, privacy and personal information by creating a secure tunnel using secured VPN protocols – hiding your original IP behind one of its own – and encrypts all your communication and passes through the secure tunnel allowing you to surf the web freely and anonymously.
In simple words, when we connect to a VPN, our original IP (assigned by the Internet Service Provider) is replaced by one of the VPN servers’ IP. For example, if your ISP assigned you an IP of USA (as you are in Baton Rouge) 2.354.452.2, then if you connect to a UK server via VPN your IP will change to 188.8.131.52. This way your original IP will remain anonymous and not even your ISP can track your online footprints.
Benefits of a VPN
Hide your internet activity from ISP. I don’t think I need to explain this reason for using a VPN service any further. As told above, now your ISP has the complete access to your internet browsing history and personal information. With the help of a great VPN service, you can avert this kind of surveillance and get the benefits of anonymity in your daily life. VPN services make sure that all your connections between your devices and remote resources are clocked.
Use public Wi-Fi without risks. Everybody loves free stuff, there’s no doubt about that. Same goes with the free internet being provided at cafes, restaurants, airports, and other public places (here’s how to bypass the limit). We don’t hesitate while connecting to such networks. But, do you know that such hotspots are not safe for confidential browsing and logins? It’s one of the biggest reasons why a mobile user must consider using a quality VPN service and make a wise investment.
Secure your VOIP phone calls. VOIP, or Voice-over-IP, is a cheap way to make internet phone calls. But, VOIP services can be hacked by the attackers who have a good knowledge of internet architecture. Such cases are a good reason to use a VPN service, which can turn out to be greatly useful. But, note that your usual VOIP speed might get a little slower.
Stop companies from tracking you. No matter how much you love Google for its “free” services, it knows everything about you. If you don’t take care of your privacy settings and browse the web casually, Google stores your every search, movement, activity, download, etc. Very often people end up facing troubles and embarrassment. Well, get a VPN, hide your IP and avoid such troubles.
Privacy is your right. This argument sums up all above-mentioned reasons to use a VPN service. In today’s times, the use of VPN is growing rapidly and it’s being seen as a basic internet security practice. Even if you’re a normal citizen and you think you’ve got nothing to hide, a VPN service can act as your best friend very often.
