Advantages Of Buying Website Traffic

December 19, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

The Internet is a goldmine waiting to be explored and the right tools are right beneath your fingertips. Many online businesses have hit the jackpot because the World Wide Web is an active community of people looking for various things or services that they need. There are also cases, however, that an online business is unsuccessful because they have low unique website traffic. With low website traffic, the chances of getting quality leads and potential sales are also kept low. This is why a website traffic generator is important, it promotes your website so that people would know that it exists. And as the traffic increases, brand awareness also increases.

If people have no knowledge about your website, then sales are unlikely to happen even when you have the best products or services to offer. When traffic on your website is increased, people who visits and find your products or services beneficial will do the rest. Thankfully, the Internet is an interactive community for people to share whatever they want to share. As your website gets more quality traffic, they will gladly share your website through their social media accounts which can potentially reach another batch of interested people.

Finding a good web designer

December 18, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

If you’re building a website or want to update your existing website and you decide to hire a designer to help you can quickly get overwhelmed. There are thousands of Web designers. How do you decide what makes one designer better than another designer?

Experience Isn’t Everything

Most people will tell you that the most important thing is experience. A designer who doesn’t have a lot of experience, they’ll tell you, can’t give you the quality that an experienced designer can. I don’t agree. While experience can be useful, it can also be a drawback. Just because a designer has less experience doesn’t mean that he or she can’t build a beautiful site for you.

Take Note: If a designer says they’ve been building websites since before 1995, they are almost definitely exaggerating. When I started working on the Web in 1995, very very few people had even heard of the Web, let alone had set up a business. I was working at an Internet company, which is the only reason I was involved with it at that time.Before you base your decision solely on how many sites they’ve built or how long they’ve been in business, think about this:

  • Many long-time designers are stuck in their habits and might not be willing or able to give you a cutting edge website (if that’s what you want).
  • Younger designers are more likely to have gone to school to get a Web design degree. While this isn’t vital either, it does tell you that this person has academic knowledge that an older designer might only have through practice.

Ask to See Their Portfolio

While experience might not be important, having a good portfolio is. You shouldn’t be as concerned with whether the portfolio is made up of live sites, so much that the examples show diversity and range for the designer. Ask to see the portfolio online so that you can see how the websites they’ve built actually work. This is especially important if you’re looking for a designer to build any type of interactivity for your website.

Some people will tell you that the way the potential Web designer’s personal site looks is a good measure of how good a designer they will be. But I disagree with this too. While I do think having a good Web design business site is important. I don’t think that it’s a good indicator of how well they would design your site. Most designers design their business site when they’re not working on paying jobs. And if they have tons of time to modify their business site, then they don’t have a lot of experience, do they? But they might have a good portfolio. So you have to judge for yourself.

Gelato Store Supplies to Help Yours Stand Out

December 14, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

There is no end to the supplies you could possibly purchase for your gelato shop. Everyone knows the basics, of course. You need the cups to serve it in, the spoons to eat it with and napkins for any messes. But if you want your gelato business to really stand out, there are other ice cream shop supplies to consider as well. Keep reading for some of the supplies you should feature in your shop.

Though everyone loves gelato, it certainly isn’t as prevalent in this country as a lot of other foods. As such, many of your customers may not be familiar with all the flavors you serve. One way to accommodate this is by offering small white paper cups you can give free samples in. This lets your customer taste the gelato before getting a whole cup and paying for it. The result? A happier customer every time.

While a cup is a fairly easy way to serve gelato that should make sense in just about every situation, don’t forget about to go containers. Often people might just be stopping in on their way somewhere else. They might even buy some extra gelato for their friends. If you can offer them a to go container, people will more readily think about your shop when they’re out and about. They’ll also be less likely to spill which, believe me, they’ll appreciate.
