I know it has been a long time since I have actually written anything or Blogged – I have been posting a lot of quick things on Twitter so I am around. Just been really focusing on re-branding Vasilakos Design lately. The new site is coming along nicely – hit a snag on some coding when I get some time I will post up my new business card design. For all of you that are wondering I am still keeping this to a one page site – well technically speaking it will be kind of two pages but not really.
More to come…
I know it has been some time since I have blogged anything – articles, fun facts, other resources. I have been in the weeds working on wrapping up projects and getting myself ready for a rebranding. I think it is time to take my company to the next level.
I am coming up with a company wide rebranding campaign. As I come up with ideas and sketches I will share with everyone. I will be in touch and thanks for all the support.
To keep up with my previous post on listing a few things that can help you get the perfect web site design here is part III:
Here are a few items that any web designer or web company will recommend to any client that approaches them for a website design. When looking for a web designer watch out when paying someone to build it. Not only do they need to offer you suitable and appropriate design abilities, but they also need to understand usability, recommend. critique and give you an evaluation of your company’s image and provide solid suggestions that will help and not hinder your business. Before picking a designer ask for references, look for testimonials, contact people that they have done work with in the past – do a little research it can go a long way. This is what will set a professional designer or professional design company apart from the guy that has the programs and gets templates and calls himself a designer.
I will go in further details on the following items to keep in mind, here is what you should keep in mind when getting the perfect web site design:
- Take your time
- Get professional advice
- Don’t be afraid to ask for changes
- Communication with your designer
Marketing for the web is known by many names – it is used for promoting or advertising products and/or services using the online media (web, social networking, etc.), with the goal to increase sales and profits. Internet marketing brings together the creative and technical aspects of the web, including design, development, advertising and of course sales.
Your website is one among millions and you want your website to be seen and known by all of your target visitors or better yet, your customers. With thousands of websites spawning every day, that means that an additional million plus pages are also being generated based on the size of the site in question. This means that there is high traffic happening in the web world. This also means that your target audience is not getting to you fast enough, which is a problem. Having a great looking website and a great product means nothing if people are not looking at or even finding your site. This type of situation emphasizes the need for Search Engine Marketing for your website.
Having a website is not enough. You need to be seen to let the world know you exist.
