Here is a list of seven things that can help you do just that and maintain a successful online business.

Marketing a small business online
If you have a website, a Facebook page, Twitter account, Pinterest page and YouTube account for your business, you may think you have all the bases covered. The truth is, you have just begun to explore the possibilities with online marketing. Having a website and social media presence are not enough anymore.

The SEO top ten
If you are new to the website optimization arena, the task of creating a site with effective search engine optimization (SEO) can be somewhat daunting.

Web Design for Your Business: Keep it Simple
If there is one thing the most successful websites have to teach about online marketing, it's the basic concept of “less is more.” Years ago, when Google was just a fledgling search engine site it was competing with sites like Excite, Yahoo, Hotbot and Webcrawler. Google quickly outstripped them all and it began with a concept that the others hadn't considered. Google's site was simple, straightforward and no-nonsense.

3 Simple Tips for Driving Facebook Traffic to Your Website

You've decided your business needs a website or that it needs a new one. This is a big step for your business and you want to be sure that you are making the right decisions out of the gate.

Current and Noteworthy Trends in Social Media Marketing
E commerce is probably one of the most rapidly-changing business models in the world. We are forced constantly to evolve and re-align and it is an ever-increasing learning curve. But there are currently three trends in Social Media that have been prevalent so far in 2014 that are worth noting and understanding. Here is a brief overview of each.

Steps For Starting an Online Business
Small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) represent a significant segment in the world of e-commerce. The advent of the Internet has made it easier for the average person to establish and grow a successful online enterprise, but the rules about reaching new contacts and gaining new customers is in a constant state of flux.

5 Web Design Pitfalls You Want to Avoid
If you are in ecommerce and using your website to promote your brand (and really, why else would it be there?), the site needs to represent you well. Just like you wouldn't allow a brick-and-mortar store to fall into disrepair, your website should always be in the best possible condition. If your store is falling apart, no one would want to shop there. If your website is falling apart, people won't want to shop there either.

Getting your website design balance right
As with so much in life, website design involves making a lot of decisions: Today we take a look at what you need to do in order to maintain a harmonious balance that will inform each of these important decisions.

Top 3 Marketing Mistakes in Social Media
Since the advent of social media, businesses have been scrambling to figure out the best way (or ways) to harness the power of sites like Facebook, Twitter, and – going way back – MySpace to the advantage of their brands. Companies have recognized the value of social media for quite some time now and yet there are still some that haven’t quite figured it out; there are those that simply don’t use it the right way.

4 Ways to Dominate Using Content Marketing in E-Commerce
Whether you are selling home-made crafts, t-shirts any other consumer product online, you have most likely heard it said that you need to be marketing your product(s) with content. This is because presenting potential buyers with free, high-quality content establishes trust, builds the reputation of your brand, keeps people in the know about what you're selling, and it gives you something great to distribute on your social media accounts.

Why Your Website Needs to Be Responsive
As of 2014, it is estimated that 1 in 8 website page views comes from some kind of mobile device. Think about that in terms of your business. Responsive design caters to a mobile market, so if your website isn't optimized for it (or if you don't know if it is), you need to read on...

3 ways that hardware has affected web design since the 1990s
Website design has come a long way since the late 1990s: Don’t believe us? Just take a quick trip to any good digital archive website and type in your favourite website addresses: It might shock you to notice just how terrible some of those sites (Even the ones belonging to big-time brands) looked back then: And no, we’re not just talking about shocking colour-schemes, poor logo designs or cheesy graphical effects…

The 1990s called: They want their website back…
In the accompanying post ‘Three ways that hardware has affected website design since the 1990s’, we took a look at how the evolution of computer hardware has helped shape the net we know and love today; Continuing on this theme, we now take a look at some other factors which have influenced web design since the dark ages of web development…

Why has everything gone flat in web design?
Are you sitting comfortably? Good – then I’ll begin: Once upon a time, the most popular design language of the web was packed with visual analogies which attempted to bridge the realm of the physical, with the land of the virtual: Designers covered websites in a rich tapestry of complex textures, 3d shadow effects, glossy faux-reflections: And glowing, bevelled blocks of gradient-shaded pixel formations were the order of the day.

One great trick to boost your e-commerce conversion rate
Sometimes, it is easy to get caught up in the daily flow of managing an e-commerce website: Before you know it, you’ve dispatched your orders for the day, ordered new stock in, responded to some customer feedback and you might even have had a chance to chat with a supplier or two about some upcoming product lines, before you realise that it’s time to leave the office for the day: Next thing you know, you are back in the office, repeating the whole cycle again…

3 social media marketing secrets of the pros
It’s no secret that Social Media Marketing (SMM) can be one of the most effective ways of increasing brand exposure, reaching out to a wider audience and in improving your relationship with your customers: But even if you have an active presence on the big social networks, you might still find some of the following facts rather interesting…

Tsu - A new and different Social Media Markeing platform
Why is Tsu worth your time? It’s not every day that a new social network comes out which catches our attention: After all, with the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and other big names all carving their own niche, where is the room for another one?

Twitter Cards: What You Need To Know
Twitter has come a long way since it was first launched, all those years ago, in 2006. Today, it is one of the most visited websites in the world and a social media force to be reckoned with, having a user-base of around half a billion people (with approximately 284 million of these users being considered ‘active’).

Support Kids for Life and Make a Difference
We live in an age where life-threatening cancers and illnesses continue to make a significant impact upon a huge number of babies, children, young adults and their families across the UK on a daily basis: In fact, it is estimated that one in every 500 young people will develop cancer. With this painful fact in mind, it is clear that the good work of charities like Kids for Life is incredibly important: After all, children are our future – and a cure can only come about with dedicated support and through extensive research.

Cyber Monday: What is all the hype about?
Whilst boxing day sales were once the big thing in UK retail to look forward to each year, an increasing number of retailers now follow trends from across the pond like Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, which have, so far, proved to be increasingly popular with each passing year.

3 e-commerce trends to watch out for in 2015
Whether you are about to enter the world of e-commerce for the first time with a brand-new website launch, or just fancy revamping your current online store to keep up-to-date with the most recent developments, we’ve compiled a top-3 list of trends to look out for in 2015.

Is digital first a sensible approach for graphic designers?
Branding matters as much today as it ever has: But whilst many firms come to web designers with an existing brand identity, logo, colour palette and other guidelines that are standards in the world of graphic design, a huge number of firms today will never print a single business card: They’ll not have a physical office, or ever face the need to crease a single sheet of company headed paper.

Adapt to survive: Bringing brands into the digital age
Modern graphic designers live in a time when many clients come to them with existing branding that needs to be incorporated into new mediums, for example, to be used in a new website or app.

The problem of designing print first, digital second
Many designers today encounter the issue of trying to incorporate a client’s existing logo, colour-scheme and typography guidelines into a usable, functional responsive website – whilst in some cases the process is painless, in others, a lot of problem-solving is required.

How to make social media work for you
Despite the fact that Facebook has only been around since 2004, if it were a country, it’d have the 3nd largest population in the world (after China and India), with its 1 Billion + users.

Why Instagram should be a part of your marketing strategy
Whilst many businesses actively use Facebook and Twitter as a vital part of their online marketing strategies, Instagram is often neglected: But did you know that this resource could prove to be an incredibly powerful tool for connecting with your target audience?

Are template websites bad for your business?
These days it is very easy to source a ready-made, off-the-shelf website template for (as many of their creators are proud to proclaim) ‘The price of a cup of coffee’.

Will Virtual Reality become an everyday part of the web?
3D is dead, long live Virtual Reality?

How one overlooked resource can boost your online sales
If you own an online store, it is important to always look for new ways to tweak and adjust your website in order to optimise your conversion rate. The problem is that this process can be very time intensive, requiring a lot of analysis and testing in order for you to identify what works and what doesn’t: It requires a lot of dedication and effective management skills in order to set the time aside for site improvements, but if you bite the bullet and go for it, the rewards can make it all worthwhile.

How to combat cart abandonment
Picture this scenario… You roll into a supermarket, browse a few aisles, stuff your shopping cart full of products: Then head over the checkout. As soon as the cashier is ready to serve you, you abruptly let go of the cart and abandon it, before swiftly walking out of the store without so much as a word. Chances are this is something that you are unlikely to have ever done in a physical shop: But just think about how many times you’ve done something similar when shopping online…

3 smart social media tips you can’t afford to ignore
Just because you already actively use social media as part of your online marketing strategy doesn’t mean that you are necessarily squeezing every last drop of marketing juice out of your assorted accounts. Let’s take a look at three very important tips that you need to consider as you attempt to harness the full power of social media marketing…

Infinite scrolling: A web-design trend that is here to stay?
Each year, round about this time, the global web design community gazes into their crystal balls to predict which hot trends look set to take the year by storm – and to decide which remnants of the past will fade into obscurity. Today, infinite scrolling is a hot trend which can be seen everywhere on the web, from online stores to the biggest social networks. Despite only recently rising to a position of prominence, this technique is already dividing opinion.

Measuring the PR metrics that matter to your business
With so many analytical tools available to businesses today, it can become incredibly easy to get bogged down by the minutiae of each and every PR campaign: So much so, that knowing how to sort useful information from a vast sea of worthless data has become an incredibly useful skill for savvy marketing strategists to learn.

How will Googles mobile-friendly algorithm hit your site?
It wasn’t so long ago that anyone looking for a new website would be advised that responsive design is a great optional extra to bolt onto their package – but that it wouldn’t be something that is essential.

How to tell if your ecommerce site is doing its job properly
As any marketing expert will tell you, there is no such thing as a ‘good’ design, just a design which is ‘effective’ – or ‘ineffective’. Thanks to advances in modern web analytics, we can get a pretty good picture of a site’s effectiveness in a bewildering array of key areas, but even with this technology, some grey areas will always exist, especially when dealing with more esoteric concepts, like emotions… In the end, you’ll need to take a multi-tiered approach in order to get the whole picture…

Stay on top of your Social Media Marketing with these 3 tips
‘These days, Social Media is a vital part of the online marketing landscape which should never be neglected’. Yes, you’ve probably heard this rhetoric a thousand times before, but staying on top of your social media marketing campaign is often easier said than done when you have countless other marketing activities to take care of – not to mention the day-to-day running of your business.

Avoid fleeting fads for a future-proof site design
Whilst it is all too easy to get swept up with the latest web design trends and go super-creative with bold new ideas for your next big project, it is usually wise to sit back first and carefully consider whether each of the decisions you make will result in a more effective, enduring end product – or if you’ll end up having to re-think things in the near future and head back to the drawing board.

Three powerful tips to boost your ecommerce conversions
Sometimes your ecommerce website just needs a shot in the arm to give it that boost towards greatness – but with so many in-depth elements to analyse and refine, knowing where to focus can often prove problematic.

How Googles algorithm changes influence web design
Google’s latest big algorithm update (Namely the one which now includes an analysis of how mobile-friendly sites are) is shaping how designers approach each new project in a much more pronounced way than most of the other algorithm updates that have went live in past years.

Digital grants for Scottish businesses
If you’re currently in the process of building up a fledgling company in Scotland, you may be pleased to hear the news that Business Gateway is now offering up a remarkable grant for qualifying Scottish companies. Designed to cover up to a £5k spend on ‘digital’ costs, this new grant could effectively result in a massive rebate for eligible businesses.

Errors to avoid in your social media marketing campaign
If you are new to the world of Social Media Marketing (SMM) – or even if you’ve been harnessing its power for quite some time – there are a number of mistakes which even seasoned veterans can make that, once rectified, can result in increased conversions, improved exposure and a more favourable brand identity. Let’s take a look at three easily-avoided errors to steer clear of in your SMM campaign…

Does Google care if your website is responsive or not?
Responsive design is now accepted as an essential component of any successful modern website. Unless your site runs flawlessly on all commonly-used internet-enabled devices, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktops, then you will be fighting an uphill battle to gain new customers, keep your existing clients and appease the search engines: In particular Google…

3 things you must get right to run a successful e-com store
Whilst the topic of ecommerce website design is pretty vast, there are some core nuggets of essential information which are not always common knowledge, but which might just help you to improve your online sales, make savings and streamline your online performance into a more efficient form. Let’s take a look at three such tips…

Focus on the smallest details for a mobile-friendly site
Whilst it’s not exactly breaking news that Google’s search engine algorithm now factors in just how mobile-friendly each website is that its spiders crawl into, many web developers and online marketing specialists are still finding their feet in this bold, responsive modern web, whilst others have already made a relatively painless transition. Whichever camp you’re in, we’ve compiled a handy guide that covers some oft-overlooked details that, whilst seemingly minor in nature, can make a huge difference to the performance of your site.

Three reasons why physical retailers need an online presence
If you own and manage a physical retail store - but don’t have a website or online store yet, you could be losing out: Big time! Whilst nothing can entirely replace the experience of browsing and shopping in a beautiful physical store, when it comes down to brass tacks, there are many limitations of running a brick and mortar business which could be holding you back from achieving your full potential.

Which mobile-friendly web design strategy is right for you?
If you are about to start the process of creating a new mobile-friendly website, you might have heard the terms: ‘Responsive Web Design’, ‘Dynamic Serving’ and ‘Separate URLS’ bandied about: But what exactly is the difference between each of these methods and more importantly, which one is right for you? Let’s take a look at each of the three different strategies and find out what makes them tick…
