Guides and notes to mananaging websites and online strategies
On several occasions we've been asked whether we outsource our development and programming tasks (specifically to inexpensive programmers overseas), and if we don't, why don't we?
I recently gave a presentation to the Southern Alexandrina Business Association regarding technologies when travelling as well as some technologies we use to run our business.
The web is a great platform to share information and advertise your business or organisation. For a website owner, it can be difficult to understand what you are paying for and what the different terminology means.
We love building websites with Concrete5, it's intuitive to use and very flexible. Unlike other content management systems we have used, we've found that with Concrete5 training is minimal (or sometimes not even necessary) and our clients quickly pick up how to manage their sites. Better still, we've found that clients are then happy to then edit their sites themselves and often feed back to us how easy they find it all (especially if they have used different systems in the past).
If you are a business owner or organisation manager that is about to develop or update your website through website developers (like us!), these tips are for you.
Content management systems allow website owners to easily and quickly add and make changes to their website. Occasionally though users have a problem copying and pasting content into these systems due to a few incorrect assumptions about the process. These problems are easy to avoid with a few pieces of easy to follow advice.
When the decision was made to expand the business and create the Mesuva Web Development identity, we recognised that we could use a lot of online technology to help things run smoothly. In the past the business was simply run from a personal email address and by doing invoicing and record keeping by hand. One of the goals we set was to be able to work effectively from a few laptops anywhere in the world with a reliable internet connection. We also felt that the management of the business should be not tied to any particular computer.
