I have seen and created sites which utilise the Facebook “Like Box” to engage with people on a website to urge people to like a Facebook page. If used well these can not only display your number of likes and faces of the people that like your page but they also can display your post feed and tell you if any of your friends like the page also. Well The Facebook Like Box is about to be no more! With the release of Facebook Graph APi v2.3 the Like Box plugin will become deprecated and thousands if not millions of websites around the world will end up with a blank […]

About 2 months ago I was asked to be a featured supplier on their website to promote their services in a more personal way, this company is a company I have used since 2002 for all my domain needs. little did I know there would be in a few months time a picture of me on one of their high traffic pages where they provide email services, so is this going to help my business? Well the feature was live on the 5th March and judging by my analytics this tripled my visitor rate for that month, though in our nature of business this is difficult to quantify. As a rule […]
Getting an inbox full of company’s offering you services from a far away country? Offering prices so amazing that your jaw drops? And hang on a minute…. its exactly what you do!!! This has happened to me over the last few days and admittedly most of these emails that end up in you info@ mail box tend to be from real dodgy types looking to increase the size or lengthen the you know what….. But hey sometimes some of these are from outfits that look like they are what they are. My issue is with a company that not only send an email from a reputable looking company but also look like […]
Everyone wants to put across the right impression when promoting their business, but there are some simple things which need to be taken into account to ensure your brand looks professional. Let’s take a basic flyer for our example for now. It’s all very well trying to stand out from the crowd but certain things on your flyer need to be avoided. 5 things not to do: 1. Don’t capitalise text to make it stand out. The human brain recognises shapes of words not just of letters and when all letters are capitalised the normal word shape is lost, This is why all UK road signs back in the 50’s […]
Here’s a funny one for you.. I just purchased car breakdown cover as I know in the coming months I may need to make a few long journeys. Now I didn’t go to google and type in Breakdown Recovery, instead I just typed “The AA”. So Why is that? I asked myself, well I know I must have seen at least 3 adverts on the TV in the last few days and I have seen a number of their vans around in this cold weather and I seem to remember I had an email from them as I had been looking into Car Insurance. This just shows that if your […]
NFC is a technology being spoken about a lot at the moment , but is it likely to be implemented into smartphones any time soon? Speculations of the potential of NFC have been whispered to consumers, and large corporations, like Sony and Blackberry, seem to be moving in to intergrate it into their hardware. So what is NFC? It’s a method of data transfer which is entirely contactless. Although similar tech has been used for some time now, like TFL’s Oyster cards, Near Field Communication has the capabilities for “sharing, pairing, and transaction”. (unlike the RFID chips of Oyster cards which are one-way only). There are some exciting and innovative things planned for […]
