We love the new CMS like homepage and puts a clear direction for WordPress that it has now graduated from Blog is now a proper CMS
Open Sans Typeface really brings out the new theme
The theme is responsive on a big focus on Mobiles
WordPress Twenty Twelve keeps post formats consistent on all views. Links, Quotes, asides and images retain the look across the site.
We will be adding a new site with the template to play around with shortly.]]>

This gives us a very good team to manage your wordpress website.
WordPress 3.2 is out which means that our team can now build custom structure for your website. This version brings heaps of improvements. Please view the video below for more details.
Please view the latest search results for DzineClub. Instead of just being links under the Main website title, there is now a url and a description of the pages in the links. We have seen upto 10 links on a page and with that the result seems to take almost half the page.
How does Google pick sitelinks? There is no definitive answer but runs an alogrithm which picks the specific links on the website.
For all paid traffic, Google has also started using site links. Please view example when searching for BMW in Adwords.
The old site links are now coming up in paid search. We are actually more stoked that we have 10 site links while BMW has 6
This is going to cut traffic for any company which is in 2nd spot and so on.
Also this makes Paid search more valuable for businesses because the paid listing are comparable to organic listings and will more likely make a customer click on it. This means that lower end companies are better off investing in Adwords than Full on SEO.
Look for your brand and make sure that you have site links coming in your list.
Meta descriptions are really important now so that your visitors can see the descriptions on your inside pages. If there is a link that you would rather not have in your listings, remove that using Google Webmaster Tools
Here is a quick infographic by Lab42 on how many people know about QR codes, How many of them use it, why they scan QR codes and where they use QR Codes.
We have just added a dedicated Magento Developer to the team to make changes to the code of Magento and customise Magento stores to clients requirements.
We have been building Magento Stores for Clients since last year and have produced heaps of stores in that time. Currently we are in the process of building these Magento stores
Please subscribe to our newsletter for more Magento Updates
We are on target to deliver a new WordPress website every week until the end of the year. Which means that we will be delivering 22 WordPress websites this year.
Please keep a look out for our blog as these sites go live and also our blog post which features all the WordPress websites that we have done.
Our CMS of choice is WordPress (for websites) and Magento Commerce (for Online stores) and it consists of our bigger team of development. The reasons we pick WordPress and Magento is because these platforms are easier to install, develop, deploy and improve on.
This means that as a client you get speedier development, lower total cost of ownership, Quicker updates and integrations. If you need a design refresh in a few months, you don’t have to worry about the content, it will just be a matter of putting a new skin on top.
That, a CMS that is a perfect fit today might not be the best in a few years. This was the case with Joomla a few years ago and now WordPress has taken the crown from our prespective.
Some of the things we look for in a CMS before developing are:
Based on this, we make a recommendation for a CMS for a client.
We just came across this infograph by the guys at Devious Media on the 3 open source platforms. Our summary follows after the graphic based on the infograph. Please note that we wont be discussing Joomla as we don’t see a definite future with Joomla.
We recommend using WordPress for most sites and have worked with a large number of sites where we have customised WordPress to work as per business needs. Please view our list of sites we have customised for WordPress here:
We still recommend using WordPress for Medium to Large Clients because of the level of customisation that can be done in WordPress and how quickly it can be changed and new plugins being added. What Drupal can do for such size clients can easily be accommodated using Plugins in WordPress.
For sites such as the main Government site, user payments and memberships, forums, connections to ERP platforms, WordPress is probably not the right option right now. The best solution would be to customise Drupal or use a paid CMS Platform. However if you are developing your site in 6 months or a year’s time, WordPress should be a worthy competitor.
Have you got a website that you are looking at developing and are not sure which CMS is the best to use?
Flick us an email at email@example.com and we’ll recommend a solution based on our expertise.]]>
We have built a custom fan page with multiple tabs which makes it easier to show more content on the page. The four tabs on the page allows the user to go through the main parts of the Facebook Fan Page.
Other features are a “email subscription form” and a contact us form that can be filled directly on Facebook.
You are now able to comment on any blog posts using Facebook. Please note that you need to be already logged into Facebook to do this.
To see how it works, just go down to the bottom of this post, where it says Facebook Comments and comment away]]>
So here is a the list of offerings
We can set up an send out bulk sms. All the SMS have an opt-out clause (obviously) and can help promote events or inform user about emergencies.
We can also enable web to sms service, where a visitor to your website puts in their Mobile number and they get a SMS reply set up by you.
We are also able to set up SMS Keywords, where if your visitor or subscriber SMSes a keyword for example “abc” to a number, they get an automated SMS back, or it records their number on to a database.
Need any SMS Services, get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org]]>
While email marketing is all about sending content to a group of subscribers at one time, a nurturing program is about sending smaller bits of content to users over time. These smaller bits most likely are not running at the same time.
Nurturing Dialogs are mostly useful for trainings, events, product training, service training and date based events. These are not useful for company news and updates.
You can use it for:
Here is a demo of how a nurturing program works.
To view the demo, just enter your email address on the form below and we will send you a series of 4 emails talking about a nurturing program. Here is how they will come to you:
This can be your subscription form, or product information form, event form.. you get the point]]>
500,000 android devices are being activated every day. Mobile brings a new way of interacting with data and viewing information wherever you are. It’s easy to use and get online. The problem with current websites are that they are not made for mobile devices however mobile usage is growing exponentially every day.
We develop a site that works both on iPhone and Android.
This is how we work with mobile website development.
We develop websites on HTML5 and CSS3 which works into both iPhone and Android. So our mobiles websites are platform independent. The websites will look great in both iPhone and Android.
If you have a website with a wordpress CMS we can utilise the existing mobile themes that natively work with wordpress or we can build a custom one that works with the existing data that you have with wordpress.
Depending on whether or not you have a CMS, you might leverage with a custom CMS created specifically for you to improve your content.
Here are some of the mobile websites that we have built in the last month.
A QR or a “Quick Response” code is a black and white square code that contains information such as a link, product, website etc. A mobile phone with a camera and a QR reader will be able to read the code and display the information on the site.
QR codes are actually a really good technology but hasn’t picked up as well in Australia, but is everywhere in Japan, Korea and picking up in very well in USA.
We are testing QR Codes for one of our clients tonight and will update the results when they come up today.
We all know that we now look at videos more than read any text so here are some videos that discuss QR Codes.
The widgets are updated in real time and as clients add new stores to the platform or more products the values will add up. So feel free to visit our site at any stage and look at the updated running total.
The widgets come up in three spots
