How to Use Reachwerks: Calendar

Reachwerks can do so much more than just help you post on Craigslist! With the Calendar, you can manage your to do list in a much more simple way – and Reachwerks will send you a reminder directly to your email inbox when it’s time for you to do that task. The Calendar keeps your to-dos in front of you without overloading you with everything you have to do at once.

To create a new task reminder, log in and go to the  Calendar. Select the day that your task must be completed by and click the Add a Reminder button. Create the reminder using the panel on the right. The title should be clear enough that you’ll understand the task just by glancing at it. If you need more space to describe the task, you can add notes in the My notes about this reminder section.

Remember, the time you select in the drop down box is when the reminder email will be sent to you, not necessarily the time that the task is due.

You can also choose to have the reminder automatically repeat at specific intervals with the drop down under the time selection bar.

Reachwerks’ Calendar even lets you choose who the reminder is sent to, so you can use it to keep important tasks and projects in front of the right people!

If more than one reminder is scheduled for the same day, you can see the order that they are due in by clicking on that day. The bar to the right will have the tasks due ordered chronologically.

How to Use Reachwerks: Account Settings

Reachwerks is all about simplicity, and that’s why we made changing your account settings easy to access and understand. Once you’ve logged in just click the Account Settings tab at top, or the My Account Settings button on the far right. If you’ve forgotten you’re login information, just email us and after verifying your billing information we can reset your password and send your login email address.

In the My Account Settings section, you can change how your name appears, as well as your login email address & password, and the time zone you are in.

If you need to change where your invoice is sent to, or the credit card connected to your account, click the My Billing Settings. It’s important to keep this information updated, because this is what we’ll use to verify you own your account if we need to reset your login information. More questions? Shoot us an email!

How to Use Reachwerks: Default Settings

The Default Ad Settings is a nifty tool in your Account Settings that lets you enter information in one place that automatically will be entered into every ad you create. From the Default Ad Settings page you can link your ads to your website, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Flickr, Linkedin, Foursquare accounts and even your blog! You can also put in a phone number, just make sure it’s one that will work for any ad you create because it will automatically be added to each of them!

Filling out the Default Ad Settings section when you first create your account is a great way to save time. It’s just another way that Reachwerks has made advertising on Craigslist easier and faster! Need more help? Shoot us an email!

Yahoo Delays International Rollout of Microsoft’s AdCenter

Yahoo announced in their earnings call on Tuesday that their partnership with Microsoft was resulted in fewer ad clicks and less revenue. Yahoo has been using Microsoft’s adCenter in the United States, but because of this bump will be delaying introducing this partnership internationally.

Microsoft is working to address deficiencies in its adCenter by changing the “systems architecture, science models and better features and functions in adCenter” (GeekWire).

This is issue could be because of the better organic search results that Bing provides, which result in a decreased need to click on ads.

How do you think this will effect the relationship between Microsoft and Yahoo? Chime in the comments below, on Facebook or through Twitter!
