So you’ve been reading a lot of blogs lately and are thinking of maybe setting up one of your own. But where do you start ?
Or maybe you already have a blog but want to try a different blog engine? How do you know which blog engine is best suited to your particular way of working, the computing platform you or your hosting company uses, and the programming languages you know? Designing a blog that works for you can be complex.Corporate Blogging For Business
Blogging about your business can be a very successful way of both keeping existing customers coming back and allowing new customers to discover you, especially if you have somewhat niche or exciting products to market. It is a great way to build brand awareness and customer trust in your brand and can be a great asset to set you apart from the competition. We can help you right from the start, by offering advice on blog design and on what and how you could blog. We can then integrate the blog into your existing website or design and build you something completely separate.Personal Blogs
Blogging is huge, with websites like Myspace, Blogger and Wordpress.com allowing everyone and their dog to start a blog within minutes. And blogs are no longer just about words: video blogs, music blogs, graphic blogs – they can be used to display and discuss any medium that can be uploaded.
Serious bloggers soon outgrow these mass production blog sites however and need somewhere of their own. We can sort you out with a blog that is all yours, with a design that speaks for you, and on your very own domain name. We can host it, design it, build it and support you going forward: you can have a completely customised blog solution.Blog Integration
If you have an existing website, Compliments can assist you in integrating your blog into it, we can match the design of your blog to that of your current website, and make sure everything works seamlessly.
Either way, let us save you a lot of time and frustration.Industry Directories & Business Directory Solutions
Whether directories are your core business, or just an extra to make your business run more smoothly, we can supply a business-specific solution.
A well-constructed, easy-to-use online directory is the foundation for many core business functions. It allows you to streamline your processes, provide better service to clients and customers, and, in the info-hungry world of today, make sure that you and your employees can access the information you need almost instantaneously.
You may want a public or private directory that is industry-specific, or one that combines numerous categories and sub-categories. One to which you can add images or video clips, or perhaps reviews?
Whatever your requirements, we can develop a solution that will incorporate the information fields that are necessary for your business directory to be as comprehensive or slim-line as you need it to be.Image & Photo Gallery Solutions
Photos and graphic images can tell your story, sell your products, and entertain and inform your clients and customers.
When dealing with the impatience of a web-savvy public, images and photos need to be easy-to-use and easy-to-navigate if they’re going to work for your business in any way. And from the website owner’s point of view, they also need to be easy to administer and keep up-to-date.
A well-planned Image & Photo Gallery Solution makes this possible. It lets you store, retrieve and update your online photos with ease. It allows you to add captions, create albums and link galleries to specific projects or events. It will also save you time in automatically formatting your photos to a specified size.
And our online photo gallery system, once customised for your organisations needs, will be integrated with your other website applications and the structure and design of your website.Website Video & Web Video Applications
Wow your website visitors with a unique video and multimedia experience.
No matter what the strengths of the web as a communication medium, TV still tops when it comes to delivering a message with minimum user input. But the separation of the two mediums is a thing of the past. By integrating video into your website you really can ’speak’ to your visitors while you ‘look them in the eye’, because web video allows you the double whammy of delivering both an audio and a visual message. And whereas previously video was an expensive medium when it came to getting it into the public domain, now it is effectively free. One need only consider the popularity and power of YouTube to appreciate its value.Web video – beyond entertainment
And the uses of web video are not limited to entertainment, promotion and marketing. Video podcasts are increasingly being used in the e-learning arena – in paid learning programmes as well as on public information websites. They can be used to add a valuable service to consumers or to train employees. Anything from flatpack furniture instructions to postgraduate lectures on emergency medicine can be captured and shared globally via web video.
In addition video is also becoming increasingly popular with event organisers: now an event’s keynote speaker can suddenly be marketed to a world-wide audience as opposed to merely attendees.
Compliments can help you identify opportunities for exploiting the moving image for your business. We can advise on appropriate formats, best practice, and the most effective integration to give you the added power of web video.
