Windows XP Upgrades

microsoft xp 300x219Do you have Windows XP? Upgrade now!

As of April 8th, 2014, Microsoft is no longer supporting Windows XP.  While you can still use your XP machine, it is not recommended. By no longer supporting XP, this basically means that your device is now more vulnerable to attacks by hackers and viruses. You will no longer have weekly security updates from Microsoft to keep your computer, and your personal information, safe.

Web Designers Have Feelings Too

sad boy 242x300We actually find enjoyment in our work (ok, well most of it). We get excited when we are “awarded” new website projects!

Each new project is like a new adventure. We get to learn about a new company, meet new people, dream up a new design, and sometimes delve into a new functionality we haven’t “played” with before. We pour all of our thoughts and creativity into making your site the best that it can be, and we are genuinely happy about it. For us, your website and company succeeding are the main goal. If the website we design helps that happen, then we have achieved our goal.

So when you disappear for weeks, or even months on end, we get sad. Actually, we go through phases, it’s kind of like when that guy you went a date with just stops returning your calls. You know, first you make up excuses for the client, “maybe they didn’t get my email”, “maybe they’re on vacation and forgot an auto-responder”, “I bet their assistant deleted my voicemail and forgot to tell them about it.”, or “they’re probably just busy, I bet they’ll get back to me over the weekend”.

How to leverage a Facebook Page for your business.

facebook for business 300x120The value of Facebook lies in its Social reach and potential influence over consumers. Having a Facebook Page allows you to communicate with prospective or past clientele on a daily basis, more openly than traditional marketing means.  You can use your Facebook Page to collect feedback from existing customers, respond to customer questions, and clear up any confusion that may exist from negative reviews or incorrect information.

First things first, let’s start with the basics.

statistics trend upSEO, which stands for Search Engine Optimization, is quite the buzz-phrase nowadays. But what does it mean and why is it such a big deal?

Search Engine Optimization is the process of making a website easily readable by search engines, such as Google and Yahoo! By focusing your SEO efforts you are able to control what information the search engines “read” on your website, and therefore what searches they will display your website for.

Put Your Best Foot Forward with a Professional Website

Why You Need a Website, Even if You Have a Facebook Page

iStock 000015376953Small 300x199We get this question a lot, just worded a little differently – “I already have a Facebook page set up with some followers, why do I need a website?” There are a few answers to this question, but ultimately it boils down tocreating a professional image for your company and establishing credibility.

A website serves a different purpose than Facebook. While I believe that they are both valuable, for the average business, I believe that a website is more important. Let me explain:

Having a website allows you to control how your business is represented online. You can be sure that all of your information is accurate, up-to-date, and matches the rest of your marketing efforts. Your business website is often the first impression that your potential clients will get, and it can make or break the deal.
