Answer by Andrew J.
If you plan to oppose a career in the publishing industry, its ideal to stick to the basics. Begin with writing, once that’s cleared you can branch out to other forms of media like video and film. Public relations is also necessary since publishing needs strong networks. Its like what they always say, “its about the people you know”.

Here are a few classes I selected from your board:

Copywriting/Storyboarding in Broadcast Advertising

Screenwriting

Film Theory (capstone, Film and TV Production Concentration)

Broadcast News Production

Persuasive Communication Campaigns

Advertising Campaigns

Principles of Marketing

Public Relations

Freedom of Communication

Legal Issues & the New Media

Business and Professional Communication

I hope this helps!

Can someone provide me with the e-z way to set up a website?

Question by adjuster0326: Can someone wage me with the e-z way to set up a website?
I need to set up a web site so I can add meta-tags. I have recently come crossways some people who cheat rather than work correctly and I would like to warn people in my profession of these people.

Will be glad to help but first:

(1) Would a individualized website suffice?

(2) Do you want to construct a faily easy free website or a professional site?

(3) Do you want to pay for hosting or do you want a free host site?

(4) Do you have a domain, or do you want to purchase a domain or would be satisfied with a “user” study type domain?

(5) Do you use HTML tags etc and are you familiar with Frontpage or Dreamweaver?

Here is a easy one I use for our condominium and its residents which I constructed. Even though the subject matter is different (many choices are available) would it be the size you require to pass your warning s to colleagues?

Answer by baz
Unfortunately the title doesn’t tell you much, but I’ve heard that position called a Web Editor or Copy Editor. At Yahoo! (where I used to work) we called that a Content Manager.

Hope that helps.

Best answer:

Answer by Gruumsh
Most search engines really don’t bother with meta tags any more. What’s more important is that your key words appear in your URL and your title, subtitles, Image text properties, and links to outbound sites.

The next step if you want to increase your rank would be to get other websites linking to yours.
