What web sites can learn from Andre Agassi
A while back, Andre Agassi was credited with the quote "Image is Everything". In those days, image maybe was everything to Andre, but the point is still relevant, especially in the world of web sites. A web site is potentially a great marketing place for your business. However, you've only got a very short time to catch your visitor's interest. If he/she doesn't like what they see inside 2-3 seconds, they're gone and you have missed an opportunity.

So take an objective view of your site. Is it giving out the right message?

If the answer is NO, you might want to consider a new design that's customised to your business.

Lots of new and different things going on this month. Here's our chance to tell you about a few of them....

  • Promoting products with a multimedia CD!
  • We've recently completed an interesting multimedia CD project.

    This particular CD showcases the work of Cuban artist Danillo Vinardell. It contains video, audio and an interactive presentation that the viewer can control.

    CDs like this are a great visual way to promote your products. They can be given or posted to prospective customers, wherever they might be.

    You can read more about this CD and see an edited version of it (sans video) at the link below.

  • Don't make the same mistake as BMW
  • Did you read about Google banning BMW's web site? It was carried in most of the national papers recently and I'm sure a lot of people quietly smirked to themselves over their 'misfortune'.

    The point is, however, that there is a lesson there for all of us when trying to improve our SE rankings. That lesson is: don't try to trick the search engines. Why? Firstly, because there's a good chance you will get caught. Secondly, you don't have to. There are lots of bona-fide techniques available.

    Remember, if you get caught, you get banned. And most of us don't have the clout of BMW to get re- instated in 3 days. Try 3 months, years......
