DudaMobile and DudaOne

By on Feb 26, 2014 in Featured | 0 comments

DudaMobile is a popular website builder that generates a mobile dedicated website in just a few clicks. This allows website owners to easily ensure their website is easily viewable on mobile. The way a mobile dedicated website works is using a redirect. If the page detects a mobile device like a smartphone or tablet, it redirects the visitor to the mobile version of the website. Read a full review of DudaMobile Here:. http://webeminence.com/dudamobile-review Mobile redirects work great but it seems that the tech community is moving away from using mobile redirects. And by “technology community”, I mean Google. Google used responsive design on their websites and has said they prefer websites they list to use responsive design. This allows them to attribute all metrics for a site to a single domain rather than splitting it between the main domain and a subdomain like m.mydomain.com. Dudamobile has recognized this and it’s probably why they recently expanded their product line with the introduction of DudaOne, a responsive website builder. Watch on...

Tips for Small Business Owners Who Want to Impress

By on Oct 22, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When you are chatting with your clients on the phone, you want them to see you in a giant mahogany desk with book shelves full of leather-bound tomes behind you. You don’t want them to realize you are working at Starbucks, or calling them from your basement full of plastic office furniture. Luckily, there are simple ways you can make your small business look large and in charge without pitching your voice up an octave and pretending to be a secretary transferring the phone to your make-believe financial guy.   A Professional Website For many customers, the first point of contact with your company is your website. The importance of your own URL cannot be stressed enough. No one will ever visit or find your website if they have to type in an address weighed down by long strings of pointless characters. Although using a template makes the design process easy, it also looks like you have used a template. Unless you are 10 and running a lawn care business, you should create something a bit more professional looking. Companies such as Inkzoo and Clover provide graphic design and marketing services, allowing small business owners to get media-rich websites without having to pay high prices.   A Beautiful Corner Office with a View Renting an office may not be a necessity for everyday tasks, but without one, you have nowhere to meet clients or close deals. Office rentals bridge the gap in these situations. By sharing space with other companies, you can have access to a beautiful corner office for client meetings. According to Forbes, many shared office spaces allow you all access to a receptionist and rent space for time periods ranging from an hour to a year.   Steak Dinner A little bit of wooing can turn a potential client into a lifelong partner. Traditionally, this wooing happens at a business dinner. Before inviting your client for a night on the town, Entreprenuer.com suggests doing a little research on them. Know who you will be having dinner with, get their back story and be ready to make interesting conversation with them. To ensure the dinner goes smoothly, arrive early, and make sure the table is in a nice location. You don’t want to be next to the waitress stand or near the bathroom doors. For the best results, take your client to the most expensive restaurant you can afford, even if it means sticking the bill on your American Express card, since the impression you make is so vital. If possible, prepay for the dinner to avoid any awkwardness when the check arrives.   Becoming a Community Leader When your business is the top sponsor of a local fundraiser or has the most prominent booth at a local event, no one will ever guess you are a one-man show. Reaching out to the community is one way to make your brand synonymous with concepts such as trust and respect, the Small Business Association says, but it is also a way to make your business look bigger and, thus, more...

What’s the Best Website Builder

By on Oct 21, 2013 in Featured | 0 comments

With thousands of people creating new websites every day, new website builders have exploded in the last 10 years to provide users with an affordable and simple solution to create websites.   What Exactly Is a Website Builder? A website builder is an online application that has an easy to use interface with drag and drop widgets that allow you to piece together your website like a puzzle. Usually, pre-designed themes are used so that custom designs do not need to be created. Here’s a video to show how the Yola website builder works:   What’s the Best Website Builder? The answer to this question can be a bit complicated. There are definitely several good website builders out there with decent reputations like Weebly, Wix, and Squarespace, but there are some bad ones too. Everyone has different needs for their website so one website builder may be best for one person but not another. The important thing is to not pay for a BAD website builder. There are some that are awful and some that are OK but not a good value compared to better options. Watch this video on website builders and read more from WebEminence.com on the best website builders   What’s the Benefit of Using a Website Builder? The major benefit of using a website builder is cost. You can spend $1,000+ for a simple website created by a website designer. If you use a website builder, you’ll usually pay nothing up front and usually a small monthly payment. This low cost is a major reason that small businesses and individuals use website builders to create their website.   What are the Downsides of Using a Website Builder? One major downside is you need to create the site yourself. It will take some time to figure out how to use a website builder but luckily, the good ones are designed to be very intuitive and user friendly. Because you’re working with a pre-designed application with widgets, you’ll be somewhat limited in the flexibility of your site when compared with a more professional option.   How Long Will It Take To Build A Website With A Website Builder? I’ve tested many website builders and many of them are easy to use but there is a learning curve for all of them so plan on taking a couple hours just to get the hang of how the application works. After you figure out the process, you can begin building the pages on your site. Without including the time to actually write the copy for your site, you can expect to spend 30-60 minutes on each page. So if you have 5 pages on your website, you’ll probably spend 5-10 hours on your site when all is said and...
