Gravure van die Shuttleworth-lewe

Posted by on Jan 5, 2021 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  Gravure Shuttleworth is ‘n visioenêr in Afrika met ‘n belangrike belangstelling in bevordering. Hierdie energie het hom na Star City, Rusland, gedryf, waar hy gereed maak vir ‘n uitstappie na die Internasionale Ruimtestasie in April 2002. Hy finansier HBD, ‘n finansieringsvereniging wat in Suid-Afrika gereël is, en TSF, ‘n nie-voordeel-verbintenis wat gewy is aan die verbetering van die idee van leiding in Afrika. Hy woon tans in Londen as hy nie ‘opdrag’ is nie, en dra baie energie by om te soek na nuwe oop toegangspaaie in die algehele ontwikkeling. Gravure is in die stowwerige goudmynstad Welkom in Suid-Afrika, en ervare jeugdiges in Kaapstad, die wêreld ingebring. Sy voordeel met vooruitgang het op ‘n energieke ouderdom begin toe hy rekenaarspeletjies ontdek het, en nie soveel het op so ‘n manier verander nie. Sy bietjie ruimte in die wetenskap dek ‘n verskuifde versekering van versoeke, eksplisiete deeltjieswetenskap, programmering, gevorderde media en biotegnologie. Terwyl hy gekonsentreer het op ‘n verklaring van Business Science (Finance) aan die Universiteit van Kaapstad (UCT), het hy aanvanklik die internet teëgekom en dadelik betower geraak met die bewegings wat dit die besigheid en die samelewing sou besorg. In 1995, sy laaste jaar by UCT, het Mark Thawte Consulting op die been gebring as ‘n internetleidende onderneming. Die samewerkingspunt van die vereniging het dadelik oorgeskakel na internetveiligheid vir elektroniese sake. Thawte (www.thawte.com) het in die primêre vereniging omskep om ‘n webbeveiligde webwerker te maak wat geldelik buite die Verenigde State oopgestel was. Dit het Thawte na die heelal van openbare sleutelinstellings oorgedra, wat die verklaring is vir volledig gekodeerde en bevestigde internethandel. Op die stadium toe dit deur VeriSign in die VSA verkry is, het Thawte die vinnigste skeppende internet-sertifikaatowerheid geword en was hy die fundamentele sertifikaatowerheid buite die VSA. Gravering erken dat boerderylande in die outomatiese tydperk hul eie stem moet vind. Vir hierdie doel dien hy en dien hy op dieselfde manier in die hoofgroep bridges.org (www.bridges.org) – ‘n wêreldwye nie-voordelige affiliasie wat poog om gevorderde verdelingskwessies aan te spreek, sowel deur middel van werk op grondvlak as ‘n groot prosedurehandel.

4 Ways to Get the Best Out of Your LinkedIn Company Page

Posted by on Oct 22, 2018 in Uncategorized |

Your LinkedIn Company Page is a key tool for attracting and engaging with your audience. In 2017, there were 18 million company pages on LinkedIn. Needless to say, if your business does not have a company page you are missing out on huge B2B marketing opportunities. But with that sheer volume, having a page simply is not enough. You need to have something ‘extra’ to break through the clutter and stand out.   Use Rich Media   Video is the future. It is believed that by 2020, close to 80% of web traffic will be driven by video. That is why it is great news that LinkedIn now offers native video for company pages. It removes the hassle of sharing content via third-party apps like YouTube or Facebook. In fact, LinkedIn found that company page videos are five times more likely to spark conversation amongst members.   Adding original, vibrant images can also boost your page’s appeal. It is a great excuse to take some in-office pictures to show off your facilities and company culture. To make your page even more visually compelling, you can include an attractive header image and change it every six months or so. Header/Banner images are a great means to promote campaigns and products or announce anything new your company is up to.   Shorten Your Updates   When posting updates, LinkedIn recommends keeping them as short as possible. 150 characters or less to be exact. With little room to talk, you cannot babble, so being concise, relevant, interesting and engaging is a must. Try to ask a thought-provoking question or spark a debate about the newest trends and insights in your industry.   Use the 4-1-1 Rule   In a nutshell, the 4-1-1 rule states that if you share an original piece of content (about yourself or your company), you must share an update from another source and four other pieces of content written by other people.   The rule keeps your feed diverse and ensures that the focus remains on your audience’s interests as opposed to it being a bulletin board for all your company news.   Create a showcase page   Showcase Pages are extensions of your Company Page. They allow you to single out a specific brand, business unit or project and tailor your message to a particular niche within your target audience. It is a great tool if your company has a number of unique product offerings aimed at varying audience demographics.   Need help to get your LinkedIn Company Page up to standard?

5 Ways to Tailor Your Email Marketing for Mobile

Posted by on Oct 15, 2018 in Uncategorized |

In this fast-paced digital age, more and more people are viewing emails on their mobile phones. That is why it is becoming increasingly important for businesses to optimise their email marketing for mobile. Designing your emails for desktop just will not cut it any more, in fact, your audience is more likely to ignore or delete your mails, which is costly – to say the least. Here are 5 ways you can stay ahead of the game and tailor your email marketing for mobile:   Use Mobile-Friendly Templates Using email templates that have been designed for mobile ensures that your content will render well on multiple devices. Emails that look great on mobile are a sure-fire way to increase your open and click-through rates.   Make Your Subject Line Shorter Having a shorter subject line is an obvious requirement, given the limited character space on mobile. While on a desktop, you have about 80 or more characters to play with, a subject line that is more than 30 characters will get cut off on a mobile device. Having shorter subject lines is also a great opportunity to write succinct, attention-grabbing copy to captivate your audience.   Use Pre-Header Text Often, the pre-header text is what determines whether your audience will read your email or not. Despite this, most emails do not include it. When used well, the pre-header text is an excellent way to ‘sell’ your content, and on mobile, it is essential to maximise the limited space you have to do this. Depending on the device, there are between 40 and 90 characters available for the pre-header text.   Optimise the ‘From’ Name Your display or ‘from’ name is probably the least creative part of your email. But why? Well, it is because your subscribers are more likely to engage with you if they recognise you. That is why putting your company name in the ‘from’ field is more beneficial than, let us say, ‘Mike Taylor’ – who may have in fact sent the mail but is, unfortunately, less familiar to the reader. Although using a real ‘name’ may seem more personal, it does not give subscribers an idea of what content to expect from the mail.   Balance Image Size and Text Research shows that the human brain processes visuals 60 000 times faster than text. That is why using strong visuals in your email marketing is a powerful way to increase your conversion rates. But for this to work, your images need to be visible and clear on mobile. The ratio of the image to text also needs to be balanced. Too much text and your email will be a drag to read; too many visuals...

Why Progressive Web Apps Are the Future

Posted by on Oct 8, 2018 in Uncategorized |

2018 has seen the rise of the Progressive Web App (PWA). In short, a PWA is a mobile app downloaded from a web application. They load like regular web pages/websites but feel and behave like native mobile apps. In this mobile-first era, PWAs are quickly becoming the next best thing for an optimised user experience. In fact, companies like Forbes and Alibaba have turned to PWAs to increase their conversion rates. Here are some of the ins-and-outs of progressive web apps and why they could be great for your business: • Instant Download You don’t need an app store to download a PWA. Although, search engines see them as apps, installing them simply involves visiting a site and adding the progressive web app to your device’s home screen. Since PWAs are accessed via search engines, SEO can be used to make the app more discoverable – a great cost-cutting exercise. • Integrated User Experience Much like a mobile app, PWAs can send push notifications, and have access to your device’s functionalities. They also offer an immersive full screen experience – without the URL bar floating on the top. • Fast and Reliable According to Google, 53% of users will abandon a site if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load! When accessed from your device’s home screen, PWAs load instantly – even in poor network conditions. They respond quickly to user interactions and also function offline, just like a native mobile app. Because of this, PWAs use less data. • Responsive PWAs render well on multiple devices, including desktop, tablets and soon will fit smaller interfaces like smartwatches. • Self-updates Progressive web apps can update themselves automatically, which eliminates the fuss of having your updates approved by an app store. If you need digital marketing services for your business, contact WSI OMS...
