Lookna – A New Way To Reach Potential Customers

Have you been scammed by fraudulent advertisers? Cannot compete with giant advertisers who have huge budgets allocated for their advertisements? We can help. Here at Lookna, we provide fair ads to searches making your ads visible to targeted audiences without paying a fortune. However, once the advertiser provided the necessary documents, Lookna shall take all reasonable steps to complete verification of the details provided by Advertiser within 2 working days.

Lookna

Lookna only allows verified business owners to have a listing and advertise their businesses. It also prohibits the advertisement of the following items and services: Casino & gambling, illegal drug and narcotics, adult items & services, guns, weapons and ammunition. We also have restrictions on some items and services you may advertise. Lookna reserves the right to decline or disapprove listings and ads that violate its policies, terms and conditions.

As a verified advertiser, you need to create listing/s that will provide your business name, nature of business, address, phone number and business website.

Creating a listing in Lookna is a piece of cake. However, here are some best practices that you can use as a guide to make sure that you get the most out of it. It is important to choose the category that best fits your business. Searchers would surely want to know all of the possible information that they can get from your listing, and if you are the right person they are looking for, they will contact you for your services.

Furthermore, making sure that they know if you are available or not will make their experience a better one. Make sure to drag the map marker to correctly pin your location, thus allowing possible clients to know where your physical location is. This can be an advantage as clients can drop by your store or business location to do business with you personally. Make your dashboard clear from clutter by making sure that you only create listings for your business once.

Always manage your Lookna Advertiser’s Account by checking the following: your User Profile, this contains the information you have entered into Lookna, like your Personal Information, Account Information and the verification documents you have submitted. Your Dashboard, it displays the listings you have created. Your Messages, conversations with services provider/s you have contacted. And lastly Billing Account, this is where the payment methods, preferences, billing history and subscriptions are.

A Searcher account is used by anyone who is looking for a specific service or product offered by the advertisers. It is created thru search page. Once the searcher starts communicating with the advertisers, the phone number he used will be saved in the database and will be used as his auto-created login info.

Here are the guides on how to Search on Lookna.

(1)Go to the Home or Search page.

(2) Type the services or product that you are looking for.

( 3) Select the business you want to get in touch with. (We recommend that you choose the nearest service provider.)The ads that you will see from the Search Result page will let you know which company offers the services you have searched for.

How to Add Social Media Buttons on the Sidebar


how to add social media buttons

If you are currently working on your blog design or you are thinking of adding some social media buttons on the sidebar of your blogger blog, then this is the tutorial you are looking for.

I also wanted to change the social media buttons in my blog but I didn't have the time to do it. If you fear of tweaking things on your blog, don't be because adding social media buttons isn't as hard as you think it is. You don't have to mess up with your template too because we will just add a gadget for this one. So, no fear at all. Here is the how to:

1. Look for beautiful social media icons for free download. You can search that in Pinterest or even in Google. For the ones I used for my blog, I got it from Verve and Sass while the icons above are from Lil Blue Boo.

2. After you download the icon, upload it to whatever you use to store/ host your photos like Photobucket or Imageshack. I use Photobucket for my images. Upload each photo to it.

3. Then copy this code to a notepad or to a word document:

<!--social media icons--->
<center>

<a href="RSS FEED URL" target="_blank">
<img src="RSS FEED ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt="youtubeicon"/ ></a>

<a href="FACEBOOK URL" target="_blank">
<img src="FACEBOOK ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt=" facebookicon"/  ></a>

<a href="TWITTER URL" target="_blank">
<img src="TWITTER ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt=" twittericon"/ ></a>

<a href="PINTEREST URL" target="_blank">
<img src="PINTEREST ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt=" pinteresticon"/ ></a>

<a href="GOOGLE PLUS URL" target="_blank">
<img src="GOOGLE PLUS ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt=" googleplus icon"/  ></a>

<a href="INSTAGRAM URL" target="_blank">
<img src="INSTAGRAM ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt="instagramicon"/ ></a>

<a href="BLOGLOVIN' URL" target="_blank">
<img src="BLOGLOVIN' ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt=" youtubeicon"/ ></a>

<a href="TUMBLR URL" target="_blank">
<img src="TUMBLR ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL" width=55px border="0"
alt="tumblricon"/ ></a>

<a href="mailto:EMAIL ADDRESS">
<img src="EMAIL ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL"  width=55px
alt="Click to email me" ></a>
</center>

4. Change those in all caps. For example, change FACEBOOK URL to the link of your own Facebook Page. In my case it is https://www.facebook.com/PinkHeartString. Then look for the direct image url you uploaded. It has to be a .png file to make sure that there isn't any background. In my case, the direct url is http://i273.photobucket.com/albums/jj211/Kareen_Liez_Ecal_Datoy/facebook_zps46e0547d.png. I will change the FACEBOOK ICON DIRECT IMAGE URL to that link. So, the final look of my html code for the Facebook icon is like this:

Do this to every URL and icon in the code.

About the width, you can change it if you want to depending on the size of your sidebar. If it looks big, then try a smaller value like 42px.

5. Once you are done with all the codes, go to your Blogger account. Then go to Layout>Add Gadget>HTML. Paste the code above and then Save. Place it on the area where you want the social media buttons to appear.
