Engage your website visitors with guides and site tours

There are several different reasons why it is wise to add some sort of a site map or on-page guidance for your website. On the one hand, of course, there is the simple answer that visitors want to find what they are looking for easily and not to give them any reason to give up in frustration and go elsewhere. This streamlining of your information is the sort of thing that turns trial customers into paying customers. But there's also the matter of your call-center costs and customer support to take into consideration. Improving the traffic flow through your site will cut down on the amount ...  More

Showcasing new trends in web design

Every day we are presented with all sorts of technical jargon that describes actions and syntax concerned with our computers but I wonder how many of us know what letters like HTML and CSS actually mean, let alone what they do. For your information, here's a rough analogy.

In other words HTML defines the structure of your web page while CSS defines its appearance. So, taking all this into account, CSS Light is a new ...  More

Find out if, and when, your emails get read

One of the great drawbacks to email is that you never really know whether the message you have sent has actually been read by the recipient and you won't know that for sure until you get a reply.

It could be your resume you are sending for a job or you could be applying for a college position so you will probably be biting your nails waiting for an answer. Let's hope your email hasn't gone to the wrong department or been missed in the logjam. Was It Viewed is an ...  More
