  1. Reasons why every company needs a website

    Leave a Comment

    Does your company have web presence? Maybe you have a Facebook or a Google page?

    This is NOT  a sales pitch, but simply a guide to making the right decisions for you and your business.

    Below are a number of reasons why it is of the utmost importance to have a company website, which takes priority over your social media channels.

    • Don’t let your competition have the upper-hand –
      Most companies and individuals use internet to search for suppliers. If you do not own a company website, or have an outdated framework (not mobile friendly), your nearest competitors who do have web presence, have a gained advantage and are most likely to take over your potential business. Therefore, you should not wait any longer. Add to your customer base by setting up your own website to stay inline with competitors.


    • Customers will find you on the internet –
      Now that the majority of mobile phone users have smartphones, customers use internet to look for services and products on a daily basis whilst on the move. The internet serves as a tool for finding a relevant seller, who meets all buyer’s expectations – whether it’s price, quality or other criteria. This can save the buyer time and money in expenses, as well as give them a more open view to searching for and comparing products. A quality website saves your customers  time and makes their searching and shopping experience more enjoyable.


    • Time is key to reach first positions in search engine results –
      Top positions in search results is important for your business – it brings new visitors to your website, without additional costs incurred for advertising and promotion.
      However, your website will not reach first position overnight. It usually takes two or three months until your website (if it’s properly optimized for search engines) starts scoring high in the search results. Therefore, do not wait too long and invest in a professional website soon! Always consider these 2-3 months in advance if you are considering in promoting your business soon.


    • Your friends can promote your business –
      Think of your website as a business card, where you can fit more information. Your company information is displayed on your website. If a friend or a happy customer wants to recommend your company, they can recommend by passing on your website address, which can then be passed on again and again.


    • Website is cost-effective long term –
      Increasing number of customers contacting you through your website and low operating expenses are far more cost-effective than traditional means  e.g., contacting customer personally or participating on exhibitions.
      Considering the return on investment (the costs invested into development of a high quality website, less the profit your new website will generate), you will realise, that investing into the development of a professional website is very profitable.


    • Product catalogue on a website –
      There are two ways of having a product catalogue. A pdf printed version or an online store. The pdf version cuts down cost of printing and posting to customers, where the customer can easily print or view from the screen at home. The alternative, is to have an online store, where the customer can buy and compare products, without leaving the house or needing to visit your store.


    • Company presentation –
      Your website will build the best image of your company for potential customers. With web presence, you no longer need to call or visit a company first off to find out about them. At KP Kreative your website is presented so that visitor receives a positive impression about your company and they will do business with you or want to find out more.
  2. Windows 10 is here! – What to consider

    Leave a Comment

    So, the highly anticipated Windows 10 upgrade is now available. It’s the end of the road for the much dreaded internet explorer browser (from a developers perspective) and in with the new Edge browser.

    Since I personally am running off Windows 8 , I was eligible for the free upgrade to ’10’. Now instead of jumping in there and putting this upgrade into action straight away, I done a little digging to see if it is worthwhile switching over so early.


    • The famous start menu is back!
    • Options refined in apps
    • OneDrive for storing your music, photos, videos, notes and documents, you’ll be able to easily access them from anywhere
    • Internet Explorer has been booted out and and replaced with shiny new Edge
    • Combination of new features and previous features that will dropped in Windows 8


    At the moment, my reason for holding off for maybe a few more weeks is that there may be still some niggly bugs, this is my only con at the moment. It definitely seems like they have improved in a few areas design wise, though i’m pretty certain this version has rolled out with a few repairs required.


  3. Dragdis – Drag and Drop bookmarking made easy

    Leave a Comment

    As a designer, I constantly find links to really good sites for inspiration, code snippets and in general things i would like to look at in more detail later, though simply do not have the time in the working day.

    If my memory serves me well, I stumbled across the fantastic FREE tool Dragdis, through Inspiration Feed via Twitter.

    Now, we are all guilty of bookmarking pages and not bothering to look at them again, I know I am. I think in my experience, the reasoning is because everything is hidden away in a folder you need to navigate your way through to after many clicks.

    Dragdis has a browser extension, which allows you to ‘drag’ absolutely any item on a page into collective folders which pops out at the right-hand side of your screen. Collect images, texts, links or videos to your private folders or post directly to Facebook, Twitter. I personally have mines divided into folders, such as code snippets, inspirational quotes, websites, mockups  and print design etc.

    You can also share your folders privately, so you could set up a folder for projects with clients, with a mixture of collectives.

    This has definitely helped me organise my workflow better, with an organised one click entry to my sources.

    Try it out for yourself.
