Get your marketing department ready for the upcoming holidays by planning ahead this year.
Do you have a plan for November? Give thanks for the people in your office in a way that they would really appreciate. What about during their time off, are you prepared for (can we even say it this early...) the New Year?
We have done a couple of great holiday pieces and they are pictured below.
You can use this time to try and instigate sales, give thanks, or just put a smile on someone's face.
Those that don't have it, want it. Those that do have it, love it.
Content Management Systems
Websites built on Content Management Systems are pretty much our standard build now. This puts the management of your website's content completely into your hands. You decide when to publish new stories, when to release new products, all with a couple of clicks.
One of the most important parts of running your own business is personally knowing your clients... especially in Kansas!
It's best to take the time to actually learn about your client's business, history, and lifestyle before you jump into a project with them. It will help you spend less time guessing what their wants and needs are, and it will give you an overall concept of the vision they have for the project. If not that, it will at least shine some light on the reason they have that vision.
A lot of people want to know what goes on during the design process of a website, or any project really. So here's a window into our world.
There is often a generic time-line for every project, it differs between every project, but most often it looks like this:
- Initial meeting with the designer/developer to tell them about the vision for the project. Be specific with each other. At this point, the client communicates exactly what they are looking for or tells the designer that they have a blank canvas, and to be uber-creative.
