Recently I helped a client setup a CRM system for their business. The client's business was running for over 6 years with rapid growth and I showed him how he can grow even faster with a CRM.

I recently wrote and article on Website design pricing and discussed the difference between a $1000 and a $10,000 Websites. Have a read through that before this. We all know we get what you pay for. In this article I am going to talk about another factor that affects a LOT when getting a Website Design in Australia. Is the WHO. Who designs your website. There are 6 type of Website Designers in Australia; 1. The web designer. (The bedroom designer. Im not being rude here) The part-time freelancer has a full-time job and only designs websites as a hobby to earn some extra cash. They are great if you want a budget website. Unfortunately, due to part time freelancers having a full-time job, getting a hold of him during working hours is nearly impossible. Also, you need not have a solid deadline due to their full-time work schedules. Your overall experience & happiness would be around : 5/10. Website design prices could vary from $200 - $900. 2. The offshore company Here, you source an overseas firm for you web design needs. One advantage of such a company is that you will save costs. This is due to the lower living costs
3 elements your website must have
Udi Ura
We did the research and we found out the 3 most powerful features your website must have. These 3 features will build trust between you and your customers and keep them coming again and again.  Let’s start first with explaining the basics. What is a lead in the business world? The lead is a person who has shown interest in your company, product and/or services in a certain way, form or shape. Business and company websites strive for that attention and interest and try multiple ways to generate leads at a frequent rate. These are tree elements that your business website must have in order to increase the lead generation. 1. A Blog This is one of the best ways to generate leads on your website. Having a new freshly written content in a form, which the user can relate to – the blog – generates views and raises awareness to the website as a whole. Just remember that just “having” doesn’t equal “succeeding”, the contents of the blog need to be at close topic to the websites thematic, be of high quality, adequately used language and informative. 2. Reviews and feedback Leave room for this option, it has been proven
Webmail issues

Webmail is free. And that's attractive. But we all know every free thing comes with a cost. So with Webmail it can be server issues, unreliability, mobility, poor email search function, spam and a lot of spam? Sounds familiar?  And that's the exact reason I decided to write this article.  Webmail can be frustrating especially if your company deals with a large number of email everyday. Tracing that important email between you and a potential client can be stressful. So the solution? It's Google Apps for Work (previously referred to as Google Apps for Business) handling emails has never been easier. With this incredible service from Google, your IT department (If you have one) will be able to get rid of all those painful server issues and focus on more critical IT matters. Let's get straight into it. Below are five benefits of Google Apps for Work 1. Great uptime and reliability This is the most important reason why I recommend Google Apps. Google Apps for Work is designed to withstand any disruptions because data is mirrored across several servers in real time. This means that if one center fails, another will take up the data with no visible interruptions to

The importance of the social media to any business or startup has shifted over the years from being just an optional marketing strategy to being a priority. Twitter and Facebook have become such an integral part of marketing that most companies have social media marketing to their PR and marketing departments. This new form of marketing is especially important for startups who are working with smaller budgets. However, despite the importance and potential of social media, very few companies maximize its potential. Marketing your startup on a small budget It’s critical for you as a startup to budget your monies well so that you don’t burn out at the launch level. Remember that it’s tough to succeed in a highly competitive environment if people don’t know your products Since time immemorial people have always marketed their products by word of mouth. The concept hasn’t changed, but the sweet spot has. In comes Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, and Vine, which have completed changed the marketing industry. It has enabled startups to reach millions of customers worldwide. So the fundamental question: What is the best social media channel for Australian Startups?

Internet marketing has grown in leaps in bounds. Some years back, before the explosion of social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter, companies used to use online marketing as just an optional way of getting their brand out there. Currently, it’s a priority. As a startup, you need to set aside some of your funds to Digital marketing. There are currently thousands of firms that do online marketing in Australia. So the question is, how do you find that online marketing agency that’s going to work for you? What considerations do you need to ponder on before you choose company X over company Y? Google certified employees First, you need to check whether the employees who will be handling internet marketing for your business are approved by Google. Hiring a firm that has employees certified by Google will enable you to maximize the benefits of internet marketing as they are well versed with all procedures. Your startup needs to budget well, making sure they know the amount of money that will be going to the agency and the monies that will be going to Google for the advertisements.

Top Salesman
Udi Ura
A salesman can do amazing things and bring in loads of leads and sales to your business. It's tried and tested and there's no doubt about it. If your Startup or Small Business is gunned with a Top Salesman your business will boost in months, not years not decades.  But, there is a problem. You are just starting up and you cannot afford a Top salesman and pay him atleast $130,000 right? That's the average Salesman's salary with 6+ years of experience and that includes commisions and bonuses.  Ok I am going to tell you your Startup CAN actually afford a top sales gun, AND for 1/5th the cost. That is for lets say roughly $25,000. You won't believe me? That cannot be true? Think of it this way. You hired a new Salesman, and he is amazing. He has years of experience and he does exactly what you want him to do.  Your customers love him He's friendly and trustworthy He gives exactly what your customers are looking for He doesn't ask for commissions and bonuses He doesn't chit chat And best of all he works 24 hours 7 days a week (Now you get it right?) And he doesn't sleep He

It has become a common practice for people to advertise their products and/or services using Facebook. Just pay for the ad and it will show up on Facebook’s sidebar or on the Newsfeed.

Business Website Design Melbourne

This is a question I get asked a LOT! So thought of writing a basic article about it.  Anyone who is already on the verge of starting their own business understands the need to create a well-structured and a robust website. This means that it must be optimized for various search engines, have an easy-accessible and modern design, and run flawlessly. Knowing this, the next thing to seriously consider is: How much money you should spend on a website? There are a few types of approaches on the matter of creating your website: A free (DIY) website Having a friend/relative do it for you Having a professional do it, being a specific person or an online marketing agency So the price range for creating the site can go all the way from $0 (for free) to up to thousands of dollars. We will focus our attention on two distinct budget groups; $1000 Up to $10,000 People experienced in website creation would often say that a $10k website is what everyone needs to focus on, the reason being that anything designed for under that price could end up unnoticeable for the online public and underdeveloped, and anything over $10 000 will be overpaying
Mobile Responsive Web Design Melbourne

Mobile manufacturing companies are selling hundreds of millions of devices every year signifying the surge in the use of mobile devices used mainly to consume online content. The most popular devices include mobile phones, tablets and lately phablets. Such a shift has led Google to change its search algorithm to favor sites that are mobile friendly. This means that your site will be given priority and rank higher on Google if it’s mobile friendly. Google stated that people with sites that are less mobile friendly would most likely see a hit in their of rankings. Internet enthusiasts have termed such a move as a “Mobilegeddon.” Some of the changes that the company would look into when determining whether a site is mobile-friendly include the text size & links layout. For instance, how close the site links are to each other, how wide the content is in relation to the screen size and if the mobile viewport is set or not. What’s better is that the company released an easy to use tool that you can use to test your site and get to see if its mobile friendly or not. You only need to paste your site in the address bar provided
