Welcome to the new DemoWolf HD!

After many months in development, we’re finally ready to unveil the new DemoWolf HD!

This isn’t just a new website… far from it! We’ve completely redesigned the services we provide, the types and formats of tutorials we offer, and the way we offer them.

But yes, our website has been redesigned… and you can check that out here: www.demowolf.com

So what’s new?

 New Tutorial Formats – HTML5
We now offer all our tutorials in WebM and MP4 video formats, as well as an Article format and the original Flash format. WebM and MP4 are the two true video formats you need if you have an HTML5 compliant website. It means anyone will be able to play and watch your video tutorials, regardless of what device they’re using to visit your website.

New Format Option – Hi-Definition (HD)
The two video formats (MP4 and WebM) will now be available in our standard definition (or size, typically 480p), but also in a new Hi-definition (HD) 720p size. The new HD option is great for larger screens to get the absolute best quality tutorials possible.

New Format Option – No Captions
All Flash (SWF) and Video (MP4 and WebM) formats are available in a silent non-voice version as well as a voice-audio narration version… as has been the case for our Flash and Video tutorials for some time. As of now however, the voice versions are available either with the text captions that exist in the non-voice versions, or without those captions. We decided to offer this as a result of feedback from our clients who are more often adding their video tutorials to YouTube or Vimeo. Many prefer not to have the text captions present, so as not to hide any of the recorded screenshots. So we’ve simply made it an option to not have those captions when choosing voice.

New Improved Client Area
We have completely redesigned our Client Area… that part of our website where you login when placing tutorial orders, or when uploading your logo. The Client Area is where you go to manage your orders, preview tutorials with your logo, manage or view past invoices, and submit or view support tickets. We think you’ll like the new system as it’s much more user friendly and intuitive. For those of you who are or have been DemoWolf customers, login and check it out! Your past order history, invoice and support tickets should all still be there: http://www.demowolf.com/clients/

And of course, New Tutorial Series!
The following new tutorials have just been added to our system and are ready for purchase, generating and download. They have been designed with all the new formats in mind, and so are available in full HD, voice and non-voice, and all the new format options mentioned above. The new available series are as follows:

cPanel 11.40 x3 end user series
cPanel 11.40 x3 MySQL series
cPanel 11.40 x3 Email series
SmarterMail 12 series

Tutorial Production Enhancements
Beginning with the new tutorials listed above, all new tutorials we produce will have some new and improved qualities to them. We now make use of “Zoom and Pan” techniques for bringing extra attention to specific instructions, as well as a new “Zoom Area” highlighting technique. These may sound like small enhancements, but we wanted to make our new tutorials stand out from the old, and make the instructions within them as easy to understand as possible.

Finally – New Pricing Model – Solutions for ANY budget!
With all the new tutorial formats and options available, we now have tutorial solutions to fit any budget. To help make it easier, we’ve developed a rather complex set of discount rules so that everyone can get the best value possible, no matter how many different formats or options you want. Tutorials are sold by “series”, and not individual tutorials… and tutorial series pricing starts at just $25.00 (sometimes with as many as 30 tutorials in a series) for the Article format, right up to $145 for the HD video format with voice audio narration.

Additional Formats Discount:
When ordering tutorials for your business, you’ll get 50% off each additional format you choose after your first. You may want the Flash format for your website, and the MP4 format to upload to YouTube… or maybe you want both the MP4 and WebM formats for your HTML5 website. Maybe you also want the Article format for your knowledgebase… regardless of how many formats you choose, you’ll get 50% off all additional formats after your first.

Multiple Series Discount:
The vast majority of our customers order more than one series of tutorials. We have over 300 tutorial series available, and some customers want 50 or more of them as they all apply to their customer base. Now when you place a tutorial order at DemoWolf, the Multiple Series Discount will automatically be applied, depending on how many series you order. The more series you order at the same time, the greater your discount. The rules are as follows:
Order 2 or more series, save 10%
Order 4 or more series, save 15%
Order 6 or more, save 20%
Order 10 or more, save 25%
Order 20 or more save 30%
Order 40 or more, save 35%

These new discounts are applied automatically as you add new tutorial series and options to your order, so you’ll be able to see exactly how much you’re saving… which in some cases could be as much as 80% or more. Give it a try!

Last but not least… New Tutorial Generation System
The biggest change we actually made to our system is nothing you’ll probably ever see… although you should notice it. It’s the way in which your tutorials are “generated” (the act of placing your logo in the tutorials).  Generating Flash tutorials doesn’t take much computing power, and doesn’t take very long… maybe 5-10 minutes for a large order. But generating the video formats… MP4 or WebM… especially the HD voice ones… takes much more computing power. With our old system we could only generate 1 tutorial at a time, and each tutorial took a little longer than real time to generate (i.e. a 2 minute video would take about 2:30 to generate). So if you ordered 10 series that may have included 200 tutorials, you could be looking at 8 hours or more to generate those in a video format. Furthermore, if someone else placed an order and started generating their tutorials before you, yours would not start until the order ahead of you finished! Some people had to wait days for their tutorials.

Our new system has been redesigned to leverage the power of the cloud to provide the computing power needed to greatly speed up this process. In other words, we can now generate many tutorials simultaneously, and additional orders do not get placed in a queue, they will start generating immediately. We’ve turned what sometimes was “days” of waiting down to little more than an hour in most cases.

So that pretty much sums up what we’ve been up to. I know it’s been a long wait, and we haven’t been producing many new tutorials while we worked out the many bugs of this new system… but now that we’re all set you will start seeing many more new tutorial releases in the coming weeks and months.

Thank you for trusting DemoWolf with your hosting tutorial needs. We value your input, so please let me know what you think, what else we could be doing better, and any new tutorials you’d like to see us produce and offer :)

Getting Started Guide (New system, July 2014)

Thank you for your recent purchase of DemoWolf tutorials! We’ve gone to great lengths to make getting your tutorials up and running on your website as quick and painless as possible. Just follow these instructions, and you’ll have your tutorials up and running in no time :)

Step 1 – Go to “My Purchases” in Client Area
Click the “Client Area” link in the main menu of the DemoWolf website, and login with your client login details (which would have been emailed to you when you made your first purchase). If you’re already logged in, you’ll see the Client Area Dashboard.

From the Dashboard, click the My Purchases icon in the Account & Purchases section. This is where all your DemoWolf purchases will be listed, and it is from here that you can manage your order. If your order is not yet approved, that’s ok because there are still a few things you can do. Your order will be approved as soon as your payment has been confirmed. This usually takes less than an hour if your order was placed during regular business hours, but may take up to a week if for example you used a PayPal echeck to make payment.

2) Upload and Assign Your Logo to your Order
If you haven’t already uploaded a logo for a previous order, or want to upload a new logo for this order, now is the time to do it. You can upload a logo even before your order is approved. Simply click the “Select Logo” dropdown box under “Manage Your Order”,  and either select a logo you’ve already uploaded, or upload a new one from your computer. You can assign a different logo for each order you place. That makes it easy if for example you have multiple hosting brands for which you want tutorials, or if you want to resell our tutorials to your own clients. You’re able to manage multiple logos in your account.

3) Assign to Domain (optional)
If you have multiple domains for which you want to generate tutorials with different logos, then you can use our “Assign to Domain” feature to help you organize your logos.  This step is optional, and unnecessary if you only have one domain or business. If you want though, simply click the “Assign to Domain” dropdown box and either choose a domain you’ve already setup in your Client Area, or add a new one. You can add a new one from here, or from the Client Area Dashboard.

4) Create a Watermark Preset (only for Article Tutorials)
If you’ve purchased your tutorials in the Article format (formerly known as Text/Images format), the process is a bit different than for Flash or Video formats. Your logo will appear as a watermark in all the images within the tutorials, so you must specify how you want your logo to look. To do this, click the “Change Watermark Preset” dropdown box within the Manage Your Order section, and either choose an existing preset, or create a new one. Creating a watermark preset is how you define how your watermark will look in the images within the Article tutorials. You can define the position, size and opacity of your logo, and you can preview what it will look like before you generate your tutorials. The Opacity and Scale attributes of the watermark range from 0.0 (not visible at all) to 1.0 (the full opacity/size of the image). Once you’ve created a watermark preset, you can return to My Purchases, Manage Your Order, and assign it to your order.

What does “Generate” mean?
We frequently refer to the word generate. This refers to the process of branding your tutorials with your logo. the beginning and ending frames of the tutorial flash or video files with your logo. You’ll only be able to generate your tutorials one time, so you should use the Preview feature to make sure you like how your logo image looks in the tutorials. If you plan to have a new logo designed soon, you might want to wait to generate your tutorials, since there is a charge to re-generate your tutorials with a new logo.

5) Preview Your Tutorials 
When you add a new logo, or define a watermark preset for your order, our staff members are notified by email. You won’t be able to generate your tutorials until we approve your logo / preset. Logos and presets need to be approved to ensure tutorials will not be unbranded or white labelled; all tutorials must be branded for the company who will display them.

You’ll receive an email when your logo / preset has been approved, and then it’s time to generate your tutorials! REMEMBER– Be sure to Preview each format before generating, since as mentioned above you won’t be able to Generate more than once. For all Flash or Video formatted tutorials, click the “Preview SWF Format” icon to see a sample tutorial that’s been generated with your logo. It will look the same for SWF, MP4 or WebM video formats, but we only preview in Flash (SWF) format since the act of generating MP4 or WebM videos for preview takes quite a bit longer. For Article formatted tutorials, click the “Preview Text/Image” format icon.

6) Time to Generate!
You won’t be able to download your new tutorials without generating them first, so let’s do that now. Click the “Generate Tutorials” icon in the “Manage Your Order” section. On the next screen, click Proceed. Your generation request will now be placed in a queue. If generating in SWF or Text/Image formats, you will receive status updates, eventually ending with the words Rebrand Complete(that’s how you know the generation process has finished). If generating in MP4 or WebM format, keep an eye on My Purchases for your order’s status to change to Generated and the Download link to appear.

While you’re waiting, you might want to set up a Tutorial Viewer for your tutorials. Using the Tutorial Viewer is completely optional, however; feel free to come up with your own solution for displaying the tutorials!

Any remaining questions? Please don’t hesitate to open a support ticket!

Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/demowolf2014

As you may or may not know, we’re completely redesigning the tutorials we offer, the way we offer them, and the formats in which they’ll be available. Soon, all our tutorials will be available in HTML5 supported formats MP4 and WebM, both in 720p HD and SD versions, as well as Flash (SWF) and Text formats. To help us prepare, we’re asking you, the web hosting community, for help in identifying what topics you’d like to see us offer our tutorials for.

Please take the time to complete this short survey, and help us identify what tutorials we should produce. We’re not asking for any personal information… not even a name or email address. Simply put a check box in all the tutorial topics you’d like to see us offer, and send it in!

Join the DemoWolf Team! – Tutorial Developers wanted

At DemoWolf, we produce video support tutorials for web hosting companies… by far the largest such company in the industry. In business since 2005, we’ve grown the DemoWolf library to over 6,000 hosting related tutorials, including voice tutorials and tutorials in other languages.

www.demowolf.com

DemoWolf is looking for energetic, self-motivated individuals to help expand and update their video library. Most of our business comes from selling ready-made tutorials that are re-branded for hosting companies, while a smaller portion comes from producing custom tutorials for clients who want tutorials for their own custom applications or website.

We’re looking for one or two individuals who will work on their own time to help produce tutorials using DemoBuilder, a screen-capture software tool. You can download a free trial of DemoBuilder from www.demo-builder.com to play around with it and have a look. We will provide training in using DemoBuilder, and guidelines to follow when producing tutorials. We will also provide the necessary access to software and/or websites needed to produce the tutorials.

One of our challenges is in figuring out what new tutorials we should be creating for the hosting industry. We’re looking for someone who has a vast knowledge in current and trending hosting applications. We will look to your expertise and will want your suggestions as to what hosting tutorials you think the hosting industry needs from us.

The ideal candidate is someone who is self-employed, perhaps with their own hosting company, and has the free time to produce tutorials for us.

Qualifications:
- You’re self-motivated; able to work on your own.
- You have an excellent command of the English language; It is incredibly important that your English grammar skills are excellent, as such English is likely your first language.
- You have experience in the web hosting industry in some capacity.
- You have experience and knowledge with common web hosting applications. This may include applications like control panels (cPanel, Plesk, Direct Admin, Helm, H-Sphere, Ensim, etc), Content Management Systems (i.e. Joomla, WordPress, etc), shopping cart systems (PinnacleCart, ZenCart, etc), website builders, etc, etc.
- You are forward thinking, and can help identify areas we may be lacking in our tutorial library.
- Experience with DemoBuilder 8.2 is an asset, but not necessary (easy to learn, if you’re good with computers)

Job Description:
Our immediate needs are for individuals to produce tutorial “series” for products and applications. A series may include anywhere from 10 to 30 separate 2-3 minute tutorials. You will use DemoBuilder 8.2 to do this, and you will produce tutorials per our instructions. We will provide you with a copy of DemoBuilder if you are hired for the job.

Future Growth:
There will be other opportunities in Sales and Order Fulfillment if interested.

Compensation:
You can earn anywhere from $200 to $1,000 (US Dollars) or more per week, depending on your work output. The more tutorials you produce for us, the more we’ll pay you. Plus you’ll find that as you get more proficient with DemoBuilder, you’ll be able to work faster and thus earn faster. Exact details on compensation will be provided to those interested, if you meet the above criteria.

What we need from you:
If interested, please send your electronic resume to info[at]demowolf.com, and include details of your qualifications. Tell us why you’re the right person for this job!

Update from DemoWolf

Greetings from DemoWolf! I hope everyone’s working as hard as ever, and business is good… but you’re still finding time to enjoy family and fun this summer! I wanted to send out this email to bring everyone up to date on the goings-on here at DemoWolf… what’s going on right now, and what we’re working on for the near future.

Tutorial Subscriptions
As many of you already know, our tutorial subscription service is a low-cost alternative to buying your own branded tutorials for your hosting business. Subscription plans range from $9.95/month for any 1 tutorial series (your choice), up to $74.95/month for all 320+ series including 6,100+ individual tutorials… and all voice versions. See pricing plans here.

We are working on some exciting new features that will be available to all subscribers (more on that below), but for now we’ve decided to offer a significant discount to attract new subscribers… an offer that existing subscribers can take advantage of too. For a limited time, all new subscribers can sign up to our largest all-inclusive plan for just $1.00 for the first month. This will allow you to get setup and gives you ample time to properly evaluate whether or not our service is right for you. After your first month, your recurring monthly rate will only be $49.95 instead of the current $74.95/month… a perpetual savings of $25.00/month, or 35% off… for as long as you remain a subscriber.

Existing subscribers who are on one of our smaller plans, this is your opportunity to upgrade to our largest plan and get access to all our tutorials for just $49.95/month. To upgrade, simply respond to this email with your account details, and we’ll get you setup :)

Click here to get started: http://www.demowolf.com/buy-subscribe.php

For new subscribers: Proceed as if you were ordering our “All 200 Tutorial series” plan (note there are actually over 320 series now), but DO NOT select the “add voice” option… we will add that for you for free. Then click the “Checkout Button”… even though it says $49.95/month. You will then enter Promotional Code ALLDEMOS which will reduce the price of your first month to $1.00. Submit your order. We will then alter your order to also include all voice versions of tutorials so you get access to everything. You’ll then have 1 month to evaluate our service before the reduced $49.95 monthly rate is applied.

You can cancel at any time too… no need for notice! Your only risk is $1.00.

For existing subscribers: If you are an existing subscriber and wish to upgrade to our largest plan for $49.95/month (instead of $74.95), just reply to this email with your account information (name and email address will do) and we’ll get you setup. Sorry, but our $1.00 first month promotion is only available to new subscribers.

Once you’ve placed your order, you’ll receive a “Welcome” email with instructions on logging in, getting setup and you’ll simply be able to click to add all the tutorial series you want. Don’t forget to upload your logo so all tutorials will be branded for your business. You’ll even be able to track how many visitors your tutorials are receiving! Let me know if you have any questions.

What’s New – What’s Coming?
So what are the new features we’re working on for subscribers? Until now, all tutorials available through our subscription plans have only been available in Flash-SWF format. To get our YouTube-ready MP4 video tutorials required that you purchased them. This is about to change, as we make our move towards full HTML5 compatibility. When this new feature is ready, all subscription tutorials will be viewable from virtually any device… all browsers, all devices including iOS, smartphones, etc. This feature isn’t quite ready yet… we’re still about 4-6 weeks away. But once it’s ready, the $25 monthly savings we’re offering right now will no longer be available.

New Custom Video Service
Our new custom video service is almost ready for launch. We’ve had a few delays over the last 4 weeks, but I promise when we’re ready the wait will have been worth it. Give us probably 2 more weeks to make the official launch announcement, but until then, if you have any custom video/tutorial requirements, we’d love to hear from you and tell you what we can do for you. The quality of custom videos and demonstrations we can now offer is much improved, and you or your company can be one of the first to take advantage of this… and therefore showcased on our website. So contact me today for a free consultation/quote, and let me know what you’re looking for.

Show Us Your Tutorials
We’d like to see how you’ve implemented our tutorials into your website and support system! If interested in being showcased on our website, on our Facebook page, through Twitter or in future emails, let me know! We want to show possible future clients just what they can do with our tutorial service… and give you some free exposure at the same time :)

Purchase Special
Of course there are many who still wish to purchase their branded tutorials instead of signing up for our subscription service… and that’s fine! If this is you, then you can still save 40% off our purchase prices if you order now. Just use coupon code SUMMER40 to get the discount.

Thank you all for your continued support, and do let me know if there’s anything else I can help you with.

Regards,

Rob Moore
Founder/President

Press Release: DemoWolf announces “Custom Tutorial Center”

(Halifax, NS, Canada) After several months of development and testing, DemoWolf is announcing the availability of a new tool, the “Custom Tutorial Center”.

The Custom Tutorial Center is designed to streamline the process of having custom tutorials produced for online businesses. Clients can use the Custom Tutorial Center to upload the content they want in their custom tutorials, which may include scripts, background images, scenes, special instructions and even sound clips. Clients can upload as much or as little information as they want, for example, they do not have to upload background images if their instructions instead provide us with URLs to record the screenshots ourselves.

At the heart of the Custom Tutorial Center is the “Scene Editor”. Tutorials are made up of different “scenes” and clients can define what is to be displayed in each scene using the scene editor. Add and organize notes, upload images, and provide additional instructions like where to show clicking, typing or what areas to highlight. All these can be done for every scene, and you can add or remove as many scenes as you want for each tutorial.

“We are extremely excited to finally roll out the new Custom Tutorial Center”, says Rob Moore, founder and president of DemoWolf. “By using this new tool, clients will be able to have DemoWolf produce custom tutorials for them at a fraction of the cost as in the past. Now you can have a custom tutorial in Flash or Video format produced for less than $100 instead of $400 or $500. These savings are huge, especially if you’re wanting several custom tutorials.”

The Custom Tutorial Center will basically allow clients to almost build their tutorials themselves, and when ready, submit them for final production by DemoWolf Tutorial Developers.

The ultimate goal of developing the Custom Tutorial Center was to provide DemoWolf clients with a less expensive option in developing custom tutorials. By using this new tool to pre-populate much of the content and deliver instructions to DemoWolf in this streamlined and consistent manner, the costs of production will be reduced significantly… savings which are being passed on to the client.

Existing clients can start using the Custom Tutorial Center immediately by logging into their existing DemoWolf account. New clients will have to sign up for a DemoWolf account first (which is free to do)… instructions for which are included on their website. Once logged in, clients can immediately start building out their tutorials using the scene editor, and organizing multiple tutorials in “Jobs”.

For more information, go to http://www.demowolf.com/custom-tutorial-center.php

DemoWolf is a Nova Scotia, Canada based internet company, having been in business since 2005. DemoWolf provides ready-made rebrandable tutorials for the web hosting industry, and is also a production house for custom tutorials for any industry. For more information, go to www.demowolf.com, or contact DemoWolf directly either by email, live chat or telephone.

 

Subscription Promotion: 10%-30% off all plans

Do you want tutorials on your website to help cut down on support tickets, but find them too expensive to purchase? Then you should consider the DemoWolf Subscription Service. With a subscription your costs are vastly reduced, and you get the flexibility to get updates and change which tutorials you display free of charge.

We have over 5,500 ready-made tutorials available to be branded with your logo, all of which are available as a monthly subscription instead of having to purchase them. Display these tutorials on your website for as long as you remain a subscriber, and feel free to cancel at any time.

For a limited time, all of our subscription plans are available at a discount… use the following coupon code and get 10% off the monthly subscription prices, for as long as you remain a subscriber!

Subscription Coupon Code: TENOFFSUBSCR

To order, go to http://www.demowolf.com/buy-subscribe.php and scroll to the bottom of the page. Then click the “Sign Up Now” button for the subscription plan you want (Note: the prices listed will be discounted by 10%). Then on the Shopping Cart page, choose your billing period (monthly or annually… annual subscribers get an extra 3 months free), and whether you want to add the “voice tutorials” to your plan, or just have the non-voice “silent” tutorials. When ready, click “Update Cart”. Enter the above Promotional code, then click “Validate” and complete the sign up process.

Advantages of Subscribing vs Purchasing

  • Ability to change which “tutorial series” you display on your website at any time, from your control panel
  • Ability to regenerate your tutorials with a new logo at any time, from your control panel
  • Access to all new and updated tutorials as soon as they’re released
  • Track how many views your tutorials are getting from your Client Area portal

 

“Switch-Over” Special

In addition, we are offering a “Switch-Over Special” to all existing DemoWolf customers who have purchased our tutorials in the past. If you want to switch to the subscription model to take advantage of the additional services available to subscribers, we will give you an additional discount as follows:

  • If you’ve spent less than $500 in the last 12 months, we’ll discount your subscription fees by an additional 10% (so 20% off total)
  • If you’ve spent between $500 and $1000 in the last 12 months, we’ll give you an additional 15% off (so 25% off total)
  • If you’ve spent over $1,000 in the last 12 months, we’ll give you an additional 20% off (so 30% off total)

If you’re an existing DemoWolf customer wanting to take advantage of the Switch-Over special, you’ll need to contact us so we can first verify your account, then give you a special copuon code. You can contact us by responding to this email, or contact us by Live Chat on our website.

Thanks for your time, and as always, let me know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Rob Moore

DemoWolf is getting Social!

Good day from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada…

Well it doesn’t look like Facebook or Twitter are going anywhere anytime soon… so I thought it was high time DemoWolf embraced these and other social technologies, no matter how hard it might be for a 40-something guy like myself to learn.

I’ve been using Facebook personally for a few years now, and I get how that works. Family pics, “what are you doing now” updates, etc… it’s all very happy and nice. From a business perspective though, I haven’t done much with DemoWolf on Facebook… save for the “Facebook page” I created (and in the 2 or so years it’s been there, attracted a whopping 46 “Likes”).

As for Twitter, I do not use it personally but have been “trying” to use it for DemoWolf… and have managed (a respectable?) 230 followers. You may have seen some of my @demowolf tweets… and probably asked yourself, “What the hell are these guys doing”. I know, it’s fairly obvious I don’t quite get it yet… misplaced hashtags and @ signs, links to nowhere and probably too much self promotion… but I’m trying.

Gone are the days when computer and internet stuff just came naturally to me… and I think it happened somewhere between age 35 and 40… but learning these new technologies is somewhat of a chore to me, much like changing diapers and driving kids to soccer and baseball is likely foreign to many of you under-25ers… but I digress.

Why am I telling you all this? Call it an apology of sorts for my early tweets and Facebook page updates. But I think I’m getting it now. In the coming weeks you’ll notice an increased reliance on social media (especially Twitter and Facebook) by DemoWolf, as I aim to open the lines of communication between you our clients, prospective clients, and ourselves. For starters, check out our new slightly re-designed home page at
http://www.demowolf.com (yeah, shameless self-promotion)

We now have Like, Follow, Google+1 and LinkedIn buttons in our header, plus the live Twitter and Facebook widgets down the right side of our page. We want you to “join the conversation” and tell us what you like about DemoWolf, what you don’t like, and what we could be doing better! Some ideas we have for making good use of social media are:

- Getting our clients to share their tutorial integrations;
- Offering special offers to those who “Like” and/or “Follow” us;
- Contests for those who Tweet about us and participate in Facebook conversations.

and probably most importantly…

- Using social media to find out what tutorials you like best, and what other tutorials you think we should be producing.

Lots of you already know the value in having video support tutorials available to your customers… but there are so many more that don’t know about us. Hopefully this renewed committment to social media will help get the word out there about what DemoWolf does, and also help guide us in producing more of the tutorials you want from us. If not, well then I’ll have learned more about Facebook and Twitter… and learning is always good… no matter how fast or slow ;)

Thanks for listening!

and… start the conversation!

Suggested Twitter hashtags:
#dwnew – use to suggest new tutorial series we should produce
#dwupdate – use to suggest existing tutorial series we should update
#dwmine – use to show off your demowolf tutorials

P.S. Feel free to tell us if there’s a better way we should be using Twitter and Facebook, and if there’s anything we’re doing wrong… and/all suggestions are welcome!

As always, Happy Hosting :)
