These Days A Professional, Efficient And Stylish Website Is A Vital Component Of Any Business Aiming To Be Successful

We are currently living in a very modern age of technology, which has filtered through into every aspect of our lives, from ordering our weekly groceries online, to booking train, cinema and concert tickets, to children’s online learning environments and schoolwork. Everything nowadays is done online.

A very important part of having a business in the twenty-first century is having a website. You need a website that clearly displays what you are and what you do, and immediately impacts to your customers why they desperately need you.

Not only do you need a website, but it has to be a good one. The best way to achieve the top website for your company is to hire a freelance web designer or a web design team. A web design team will generally give you a better result as each member of the team has his or her own strengths, that will all be pulled together to achieve the exact website you need and want.

There are hundreds and hundreds of web designers out there, so you need to carefully look through their online portfolios to see what captures your attention. There will be some work you really love and others that you don’t. You will also notice that some web design companies have worked for very large, international companies, whilst other have only done work for local businesses. Other companies will have worked for a range of large, successful companies and smaller, local companies.

Ideally you want to try and pick a web design company whose work you love, that is located near to your business. That way you can really connect with them personally and easily have meetings to discuss exactly what you need and what you want from them. It’s much easier to talk about web design in person rather than over the phone.

If you are in South East England, or more specifically in Kent, then the team you want is TME (http://www.tmesolutions.co.uk). They are a web design and online marketing agency, based in Kent, which has been running for seven years. They are a close-knit, family run team comprising of fourteen enthusiastic and creative coders, designers, online marketers and project consultants.

Over the years, they have built their business to be efficient, creative and successful, yet friendly. They’ve worked to provide web design in Kent for relatively small local companies such as Lau Hairdressing in Maidstone, Express Cleaning Supplies in Aylesford, and ACE Sheds in Ashford. Their new websites allowed these local companies to bloom; expanding greatly and increasing their profits rapidly.

As their own company grew, TME also started to work for some of the biggest, most successful and most profitable companies in the world. This includes the likes of Tile Depot, who own over twenty stores across the UK and Centroid Motion Capture who provide animation for major films. Additionally, Worldwide Parcel Services, who are one of the largest parcel couriers in the UK, and most impressively, an exclusive training portal for Samsung Mobile.

TME are one hundred percent committed to producing amazing, creative and useful websites. They take companies and aim to boost their profits, regardless of how famous they already are. They strive for improvement.

Google To Move Underwater And Take Internet Surfers For A Dive, Says SEO Company SachaMango

From September, the Catlin Seaview Survey, run by the University of Queensland in conjunction with insurers the Caitlin Group, will take to the water to conduct 360 degree panoramic filming of the greatest reef on earth, with Google making all 50,000 images available on Google Results, Google Earth and Google Maps through a new feature in Panaramio. There will also be a dedicated YouTube channel and live streams of the expedition team at work.

Professor Hoegh-Guldberg, Director of the Global Chane Institute and Chief Scientist on the project, said “The Catlin Seaview Survey comprises a series of studies which will reveal to the public one of the last frontiers on Earth: the oceans.

“For the first time in history, we have the technology to broadcast the findings and expedition through Google. Millions of people will be able to experience the life, the science and the magic that exists under the surface of our oceans. This project is very exciting.”

The survey will take place in three stages; a shallow reef survey of 20 sites across the2300km of the reef, a deep water survey using robots to depths of 30-100 metres, and finally a mega-fauna survey that will explore how green turtles, tiger sharks and manta rays migrate in response to ocean temperatures.

A spokesperson for SEO Company SachaMango Media, said: “This is a great example of how technology can be used to not only to help make ground-breaking research a reality, but also to educate and inspire the public to learn more about the underwater world around us. It forms an important link between scientific knowledge and public awareness, and gives people an opportunity to see rare sites that they might never get to see unless they actually visited Australia and went underwater themselves. The project will allow us all to go for a virtual dive without ever leaving the comfort of our own armchairs!

The survey is set to begin in September, although the project’s website already has some images from initial equipment testing and a demo of how the panaramio images will be viewed. However, there are already plans underway to document some of the most important oceans in the rest of the world.

“It’s no surprise that Google has got involved,” said the spokesperson.” As the biggest occupier of search space in the UK – some 93% – and with the features like Google Results, Earth and Maps already popular with the public, it makes sense they should be the partner of choice to develop the applications needed on its advanced platforms to view the incredible images that will come from the project.”

Half of Online Gambling Sites Licensed Outside UK ‘Safe’ Jurisdictions

The online gambling industry continues to expand with an estimated 5 million new player accounts being created each year, despite the risks that player’s face from unreliable sites.

Many regions such as Alderney, Malta and Gibraltar were approved for addition to the UK Gambling Commission’s ‘whitelist’. The purpose of the whitelist is to approve only the jurisdictions that have sufficient regulation in place to ensure player protection. Licenses from other regions are considered potentially unsafe for reasons such as lack of appropriate regulation, and not providing satisfactory mediation channels for resolving player complaints.

Only gambling sites with licenses issued by the whitelisted jurisdictions are allowed to advertise within the UK. While potentially risky sites in non-whitelisted regions may not advertise directly to UK citizens, they are still easily found through internet searches and online advertising.

An estimated 1,100 online gambling sites are operating with licenses issued from safe jurisdictions. At this time at least 900 gambling sites are operating with licenses from outside the UK whitelisted regions, while an even higher risk is associated with the many unregulated sites that hold no license and no system for player protection.

With thousands of online gambling sites available, finding the reliable operators becomes a challenge. Many players will fall for the tempting promotions being offered by less trustworthy sites, and a large number of player complaints are posted on online forums. Many times players deposit funds to a site and then later attempt to withdraw their winnings – only to have endless problems resulting in no payment being received. Sometimes operators claim to have technical or payment-processing problems causing repeated delays, while other times the player’s winnings are confiscated with little or no valid explanation.

Three recently launched sites aim to address this issue by reviewing only the most reliable online gambling sites, including only those with licenses in whitelisted jurisdictions.

www.Top20BingoReviews.co.uk – Bingo is increasingly popular online, with sites offering online chat so that players can keep the social experience of bingo even when playing at home.

www.Top20PokerReviews.co.uk – The rise of online poker continues as players take advantage of ‘freeroll’ tournaments as well as weekly tournaments with large guaranteed prize pools shared among the winners.

www.Top20Bookmakers.co.uk – Of course all the big UK bookmakers now have competent online operations to accept punter’s bets, with many offering free bets and money-back guarantees on certain events.

“Whether players are searching for bingo sites, poker rooms or online bookmakers, the problem remains the same – there are many shady operators with questionable ethics,” said Philip Jones, manager of UKZap.com

“Protecting players from these unscrupulous operators is the primary goal of our new sites, which aim to review only sites with valid licences and a history of player satisfaction, prompt payments and good customer support.”

In addition to reporting on the most reliable operators, these new review sites also help players to find operators with special features such as mobile playing options for iPhones, Blackberry and Android phones. Players will also find useful lists of sites accepting convenient deposit methods including Neteller and PayPal.

SEO Experts QueryClick Welcome Skype Subsidised Wi-Fi Hotspots For Internet Week

Internet Week began in New York City in 2008, and incorporated over 250 events last year. 2010 sees the première of the five-day festival in Europe, with the schedule of events to take place throughout London. It is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, and is open to any willing company eager to participate in this celebration of the digital industry in Europe.

Running from the 8th – 12th November, the festival, boasting over 80 events, will be enhanced by the announcement that Skype will be subsidising free Wi-Fi access throughout the UK for the duration of the event via the Skype Access service.

Commenting on the relationship between Skype and the Internet Week Europe, Co-Chairman David-Michel Davis said:

“What better way to celebrate that impact than partnering with Skype to make the Internet more accessible than ever.”

It certainly does show a commitment on Skype’s part to further the accessibility of the internet in public places, albeit for the 5 days of the festival only. SEO Experts QueryClick view the provision of free access as a hugely positive addition to the Internet Week event, insisting that:

“It makes sense that internet access in public spaces should be offered for free in accordance with the principles of the event, and the celebratory nature of the festival.”

The availability of free internet access to all in the UK increases the reach of the week of talks, conferences, challenges, and debates to all those outwith the London perimeters. The inclusion of big name brands such as Google, BBC, Yahoo!, and Lonely Planet ensures that the event will be a highly popular one, luring in the crowds with the crop of digital celebrity.

SEO Experts QueryClick Welcome News That Britain Leads the Way In Online Shopping

In a report carried out by the US consultancy group Boston Consulting, it has been revealed that the UK is a global leader in the field of e-commerce, with the highest online spend per capita in the world. The internet has contributed approximately £100bn – 7.2% of GDP– to the British economy in 2009, and represents the second largest online advertising spend after the USA.

According to search engine optimisation experts QueryClick, the dominance of the UK in the e-commerce sector has been borne out of a growing tendency of the British public to utilise online shopping services due to a marked desire to receive value for money.

“Many people in the UK feel they are able to get a better deal online, and often this is the case. The atmosphere of economy in Britain drives many to seek out better value for money via online shopping. The rise in dominance of the world of e-commerce has resulted in a greater level of competition which, for us, equates to a greater opportunity to offer our services in a region in which we are market leaders.”

The internet as an independent sector would be classed as the fifth largest industry in Britain, just behind the financial services, which accounted for 9% of GDP in 2009. The BCG study, aptly entitled The Connected Kingdom, discovered that internet companies in the UK employ over 250,000 staff, with many of these positions made available by various SMEs.

Co-author of the report and partner at BCG, Paul Zwillenberg, provided an insight into the report’s findings:

“Everyone thinks the global Silicon-Valley-based companies are driving growth, but this report makes clear that in the UK it is coming from the ‘mom and pop’ businesses. They now have global footprints, they are selling to the ‘long tail’ and they are making their businesses more efficient.”

The driving force behind the lead status of the UK for e-commerce stems from the notable amounts of money spent by Brits online. Research by eMarketer tells us that some 28.5 million Britons make online purchases, whilst around 40% partake in online shopping at least once a month, spending on average £71 monthly.

All this has come despite the relatively slow broadband speeds experienced within the UK, as well as the recent recession, in which, as SEO company QueryClick points out, online advertising spend continued to grow YOY despite the overall contraction in advertising expenditure.

Web Content Management System Consulting Company Gold Sponsor at Drupalcon 2010

New York-based DPCI, a leader in the implementation of web content management systems, was a big supporter of Drupalcon 2010, acting as a Gold Sponsor of the San Francisco conference. Over 3,000 people involved in Drupal content management attended the conference, held at the Moscone Center. Aimed at developers, consultants and businesses involved in the Drupal community, the three day conference (with an additional four days of associated activities) included numerous sessions ranging from development presentations and training opportunities to discussions of open-source CMS solutions and employment opportunities, all with a heavy emphasis on Drupal, the leading open-source web content management system.

Always active in the Drupal and web content management systems community, DPCI President Joseph Bachana and other DPCI staff were in attendance. Mr. Bachana was a featured presenter at the show, as a member of a panel discussing “Trends in Enterprise 2.0 Technologies.” The company’s visibility at the show was highlighted by a booth in the Exhibit Hall. DPCI joined leading technology companies such as Google as a Gold Sponsor of the conference (which was also supported by the likes of Microsoft, Sun Oracle, The Economist and other well known names), showing the interest the technology industry in general has in the web content management system market. Such systems can be very complex to implement. With the combination of proprietary software, open-source options (like a Drupal content management solution) and a frequent need to integrate with existing corporate software systems, it’s crucial to ensure that an experienced consultant is chosen to lead the project. Companies that make use of digital assets or publish content to multiple platforms (typically print, web, mobile and e-Book) benefit tremendously from implementing a web content management system (CMS). While the entertainment and media industry is a primary market for CMS, DPCI has also implemented CMS solutions in the education, marketing, financial services, advertising, travel and software fields since 1999.

For further information about Drupalcon 2010, visit the conference web site at www.sf2010.drupal.org. For more information about options for a Web content management system or to learn more about DPCI, please visit the company’s web site:www.databasepublish.com. To contact DPCI President Joseph Bachana, please e-mail info@databasepublish.com or call 800-818-2905. DPCI’s offices are located at 1560 Broadway, Suite 810, New York, NY 10036.

A Solid Solution for Digital Assets

Databasepublish.com – One of the greatest opportunities for many organizations involves the potential streamlining of their content structure for print, mobile or web applications. The time that it takes to structure content for these applications costs many organizations time, money and lost opportunity. A reliable content management system can help to create a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

A Solid Solution for Digital Assets

Many organizations own hundreds of thousands of digital assets. These include corporate logos, branding material, audio and video clips, still and stock photography, and a variety of archival content. Many of these assets were acquired over long periods of time and at great expense to the organization. Unfortunately, many organizations are unable to maximize the benefits of their digital assets due to a lack of an effective digital asset management solution.

Due to the critical nature of having digital assets organized and easily locatable, many organizations have implemented a digital asset management system. These organizations may have a slightly better grip on their digital asset management than an organization with no formal system. However, over time an organization’s needs change, which oftentimes necessitates customization, retraining of staff, and/ or the integration into a content management system or back-office software package.

For this reason, it is important to find consultants that are well-versed in tailoring a new or pre-existing digital asset management system to meet the current needs of the business. For example, an organization may be looking to find a digital asset management system that centralizes and manages the rights and permissions of a significant portion of all published editorial content, containing text, illustrations and photographs. Such a system could help non-technical staff members reuse both legacy and fresh content across print and digital media more effectively. Additionally, the organization may want the final implementation of the the digital asset management solution to be in-house.

For this example, many product options are available in the digital asset management market. Although the organization knows what capabilities they want, a prudent decision would require an interactive technology agency that can deliver an integrated content management system to help the organization refine its requirements and manage the request for proposal process.

A third-party consulting business that understands the technology, can assist in the refinement of requirements, and ensure an objective selection of vendors is indispensable. The mark of a truly valuable consultant is in their ability to quickly distill an organization’s needs for digital asset management and not only help identify the appropriate vendor, but also provide a new way of thinking. The type of thinking that helps the organization ensure they get the most out of their investment through the implementation of the digital asset management system.

Translator Network tolingo Launches English Language Website

The translator network tolingo (www.tolingo.de) has launched an international version of its translation portal. The website (www.tolingo.com) is in English and the aim is to ensure that the company’s services will also be used increasingly by customers from outside Germany.

“After a very promising start, we see the international site as the logical next step. We have a worldwide network of over 2500 qualified translators available. Why then shouldn’t customers around the globe benefit from it too? Besides the fast and uncomplicated processing of the submitted texts, the 24 hour global availability is one of the great benefits of offering translation services online,” says tolingo Managing Director Hanno von der Decken.

tolingo provides customers with quotations in real time, while this usually takes several hours or even days elsewhere in the industry. Automatic selection of the best available translators within the network for each document means that tolingo delivers translations of consistently high quality while keeping translation times to a minimum. In this way, the processing times that usually stretch to days in the industry can be shortened to just a few hours. Yet the prices for the translations are markedly lower than those of a conventional translation office.

Translation Services Firm Increases Sales By Providing Free Content

According to Ken Zwerdling, CEO of Foreign Translations, Inc., a global translation services firm, “Today’s savvy Internet user leaves little room to be directed by companies to take a particular course of action. The consumer has become the expert and is in control.” We have seen this change of power especially within the real estate industry. Consumers are on-line analyzing local markets and exploring homes via virtual tours with no help from a live individual, all the while making decisions without involving professionals. This trend has overflowed into many industries around the world. What does this mean for professional service companies that want to earn business? Be the first to offer consumers educational information about your services and give it away for free.

Be Known As The Expert In Your Industry

For companies that almost never achieve a face-to-face meeting with customers or potential customers, its on-line presence is the only means for consumers to validate its expertise and knowledge. This validation goes beyond graphics, ease of navigation, and client lists. It is found in the quality of the information that company provides. Some visitors know exactly what is wanted: price estimate, quote request, or contact information. Other visitors want to learn more about the different service offerings, while still others seek valuable free information to better understand the industry and guide the decision on who is contracted for service. By fulfilling the information needs of consumers via tutorials, instructional content and free tools a company will become the recognized expert in that field.

Keep the Consumer Coming Back

Free instructional articles are a valuable tool that directly serves the needs of many website visitors. The average number of page views a website visitor sees is only three. Offering instructional content will result in visitors who stay longer, view more pages, learn more about your company and become more educated. The key is to think like a customer and freely give away what is wanted. A company needs to ask itself, “What kind of information would I research if I wanted to learn more?” To stay ahead on consumer desires, a company should publish new articles periodically to accommodate ever-changing consumer interest. At Foreign Translations, Inc., the company offers a vast array of valuable instructional content. It provides white papers on topics such as How to Prepare for Globalization, Laws of Quality Translations, How to Find Growth in Non-Traditional Markets, Language Translation and Social Media, Marketing to Hispanics and Selling your Products and Services in Other Markets. In addition, there are informational articles on business etiquette in major countries such as China, Germany, and South Korea, the history of the world’s major languages, and what to expect when traveling to specific countries across the globe.

Some customers are simply looking for information. They want to complete due diligence and research the service needed before finalizing a purchase. You want to be the company that offers these consumers more than is expected, more than what can be gained from your competitors. Service companies must understand that instructional content can take many forms such as whitepapers, industry research, tips and free tools. Use this content effectively to make your website indispensable. Encourage your visitors to return again and again.

Lovetropolis.com Promotes New Option for Latin Dating

They made the announcement this morning from their Bowie, Maryland headquarters to introduce the new service as part of the online dating service they recently started in February 2009.

“In order to ensure a more accurate match and pleasurable dating experience, we have added five new ethnic and religious categories where our users can focus their efforts,” the statement read. “Our goal with this is to offer as many choices as possible to those looking for companionship. General dating pools are not right for everyone. In the case ofLatin dating, many times family structures and language familiarity dictate the criteria for choosing a partner. With our new Latin Dating service, we have found a way to address that.”

In addition to Latin Dating, Lovetropolis.com is also adding Black DatingAsian DatingJewish Dating and Christian Dating. Each of these groups will be able to take advantage of the social networking platform Lovetropolis.com put in place back in February which offers users live chat, webcam dating, blogging, internal secure email, video upload capability from YouTube, and a selection of applications that can help users improve the look of their profile.

“We have used every social media tool that has been developed in the past decade in the development process of this website,” said a company spokesperson. “The end result is a user experience like no other in the world of online dating. You can meet and get to know someone intimately before you even meet them in person. In today’s world, that makesonline dating less scary and far safer for those who prefer to avoid the club scene.”

All five ethnic and religious groups are now available with Lovetropolis.com, and they are building their membership with a number of incentives and referral programs. Foremost among these is a “Free Membership for Life” program they have initiated where you pay a one-time profile approval and activation fee of $17.95 and then no monthly or annual fees for the life of the account.

No More Playtime: Children Spend Their Free Time Staring at a Screen Instead

A new generation hooked on digital content is shunning traditional playtime in favour of watching TV and surfing the internet, according to new research from uSwitch.com, the independent comparison and switching service. The report also reveals a high proportion of children using the internet and watching TV unsupervised in their bedrooms after being sent to bed, while an alarming number of parents have yet to set up the necessary control measures to protect them from viewing unsuitable content.

In a typical day, outside of school hours children spend an average of 1.4 hours online and 1.6 hours watching television. Not only does this mean that they are spending 3 hours a day staring at a screen, but it suggests that surfing the internet is set to take over from watching TV as the most popular children’s recreational activity.

But where does this leave old fashioned playtime, and are we creating a new generation of internet addicts? Children today have a plethora of digital distractions whether they are in the form of games consoles such as the Wii, or social networking sites such as Bebo, with traditional playtime all but lost. Worryingly, 29% of children now have a computer in their bedroom and almost two thirds (63%) of these use it before going to sleep. Similarly, nearly half (49%) have a TV in their room and 64% regularly watch this in bed.

Despite nearly a third (30%) of parents worrying about information or images that they have found their child looking at on a website or on TV, just 41% of parents always supervise their children using the internet and 11% never do. Over half of parents (55%) leave it up to their children to decide which websites to visit, based on either guidelines they have set or common sense.

Taking the issue of parental control extremely seriously, all major broadband companies offer filtering facilities in their broadband packages, usually for free, enabling parents to have more control over the information and images viewed by their children. Yet over a third of parents (34%) have not set up any filters or blocks on their home internet: 22% believe that it’s too time consuming, and a further 21% simply haven’t got round to setting it up. A third of parents (32%) are unaware of the parental control features available with their service.

Jason Glynn, communications expert at uSwitch.com, says: “In an age where engaging content such as on-demand TV will only increase the amount of hours our children spend online, we urge parents to contact their internet providers to see what controls are available to them. Speed and price should take second place to safety – but with most broadband services including filtering software for free, there really is no excuse not to take action.

“We fully support the measures being laid out by companies to help families tackle this issue, such as TalkTalk’s plans to classify websites with U, PG, 14 and 18 certificates. Our research shows that 8 out of 10 parents would back such a system.”

The process of using Online Coupons is not only easy and convenient; it is a great way to save money.
