Domain Scam
Posted by Meredith B on 02 April 2021 11:46 am

We wanted to let you know about a domain scam. There is yet another scam going around trying to get some of our clients to pay to “renew” their domain. Please don’t click on any links in this email.

Domain Scam

The scammers aren’t even emailing you. What they’re doing is using the contact form on your website to send you this domain scam. This should be the first clue that this is a scam. If it were a legit bill, they would send you a bill to your email address, not the contact form on your website.

Secondly, if you google what is .ga domain, it is some other country. Then, if you look at where they’re asking you to remit payment, again, that is different than where the email is coming from.

If you ever have a question about your website domain, check out this website:

https://www.godaddy.com/whois

This can provide you with all the information you need such as:

  • Who the domain is registered to
  • When the domain expires

So this should clarify any misleading information that this “invoice” is trying to tell you otherwise. Furthermore, just call your web hosting company and check with them. Please, do not pay anything that looks suspicious, or click on ANY links in an odd looking email. Just give us a call or send us an email with a copy of the invoice if you’re unsure. Webtivity is always happy to help! Don’t fall victim to a domain scam.

Posted by Webtivity on 23 March 2021 11:22 am

Please beware of SEO/Link building billing scam that is going around to some of our clients, and possibly others. It appears that there is a company billing some of our clients for services they aren’t receiving.

The problem is that the company name looks somewhat similar to ours, and if you aren’t paying close attention, you could accidentally end up paying this false company. If receive this SEO/Link building billing scam and question what the bill is for, you could wonder why you are paying for two services. You are NOT. They are not providing you with any service.

We’ve attached a sample of the bill or invoice here so you can see what it looks like in case you get one as well.

Posted by Webtivity on 30 December 2020 10:12 am

FloridaSuncoastNewHomes.com

Jim Mancuso represented new construction home builders for many years. While representing the builder, Jim noticed most new home buyers were walking into a model home with no professional representation from a realtor or agent. This wasn’t the best place for new home buyers to be and Jim saw a need here. So, with the buyer in mind, Jim created Florida Suncoast New HomesA NO COST TO THE BUYER CONCIERGE SERVICE!

The first step was getting a web presence. Jim contacted Webtivity for professional web design. It was important to Jim that his message get out to the public as soon as possible. Understanding that a full website takes a little time to develop, Jim commissioned Webtivity to create a splash page while his full website was in the works. This allowed awareness to be created about the upcoming website, but more importantly, that Jim was ready to get to work for his customers. With the website completed, FloridaSunCoastNewHomes.com is equipped with mobile first design, SSL security, and utilizes ongoing SEO services to get moving up the ranks in search engine results.

WEBTIVITY LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE FOR DYLAN TODD PHOTOGRAPHY!
Posted by Webtivity on 18 December 2020 11:50 am

dylantoddphotography.comOLD

dylantoddphotography.comNEW

Dylan Todd, a St. Petersburg based photographer, knew he needed more exposure for his company online. He reached out to Webtivity for help with his SEO and social media marketing. Having built his own website using an online website builder, there was much to be desired in terms of SEO. The code was messy in the back end, adding content was difficult, and it just wasn’t set up for his clients to easily reach out to him for his services. After a few months of digital marketing, Dylan had a conversation with Webtivity about what he should do about his website. Thus, a new, professionally designed WordPress website was born.

 

About Dylan Todd Photography:  

Awarded as the “Favorite New Business – Less than One Year Old” in 2018 by Watermark Magazine’s Awards for Variety and Excellence, Dylan Todd Photography is fairly new in town. But that hasn’t stopped him from making big strides on the local photography scene. Specializing in wedding shoots (and specifically beach weddings), Dylan has also found a niche in real estate photography. His natural talent for this type of photography shines as he has developed relationships with our local realtors and brokerages. Beyond that, Dylan specializes in commercial photography, professional portraits, family portraits, fine art photography, and drone video shoots. Dylan values his community and has worked with organizations like Grand Central District Association, St. Pete Pride, and Bitesquad to name a few. Dylan’s passion for his work and his neighbors can not go unnoticed. Dylan Todd Photography serves the St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Tampa, Bradenton, Anna Maria Island, Sarasota, and Orlando areas.

 

A Word from Dylan Todd About Webtivity:

“Webtivity is truly amazing! Hesitant at first about what Webtivity can do, I went into a contract to have them start handling my website SEO and some online posting. They’ve helped me come up with creative ideas and ways to share my business while maintaining true to my brand, vision, and key markets.

They listened, they cared, and they want to see me succeed! It’s like having a group of people in your corner of the ring and it’s a great feeling.

Recently, Webtivity approached me about re-doing my website. I’ve had my current one for a couple years – built with a website builder. It was okay, but there were definite limitations. After an awesome chat with Tim (with the least amount of pressure I have ever received from someone) – I decided, I’m ready for change! I’m ready for a better website – something that is effective, user friendly, and maintains my brand. They’ve hit all of these important ideas and then some! (Honestly, I wish I would have had them start with the website first!) The site should have the final touches done and be live soon and it’s like the best Christmas present to my business ever!

I cannot say how excited I am to be working with Webtivity. They have been transparent, helpful, guiding, without pressure, and have done more for me and my business than I could even think to do for it myself. Thank you for all your hard work.”

WEBTIVITY LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE FOR AMERICAN FEEDMILLING SYSTEMS, INC.
Posted by Webtivity on 17 December 2020 01:57 pm

 

 

Webtivity launches American Feedmilling Website.  American Feedmilling Systems, Inc. and Webtivity have been friends for quite some time now. AMS loved the look of their original website designed by Webtivity as they have received feedback from their clients on how much they like the appearance and ease of use. However, like all things technology, the website was starting to become outdated. With use of outdated programs like Flash Player, it needed a new life in the world of WordPress.

With a large amount of their client base being Spanish speaking, it was vitally important to have custom translation as a feature of the new website. With the help of American Feedmilling, Webtivity was able to add custom Spanish translation in lieu of a preloaded translator or plugin that couldn’t quite cut it, making the website easily navigable for all of AMS customers.
