The 5th generation of html, while it has been around since 2011, hasn’t always been supported by all browsers – quite frustrating for those ready to embrace the future.
But that’s all changed now. Now Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari all support html5. So listen up, because the times they are a-changing. And this means that websites are going to start looking quite different in 2013.
A good website design is easy to do. Something that is appropriate and effective, and provides a use. But a powerful, wow-factor website is harder to come by because it requires a deeper level of thought and connection with your brand. It requires your designer to know the story of your brand.
Viral marketing is a potentially low risk and high gain form of marketing so it’s no surprise that it’s something that many leading entrepreneurs and small business owners are increasingly looking into.
The great thing about viral marketing is that it is easy to do yourself if you have the creativity, the enthusiasm, the ambition and a good strategy in place.
Your website design is one of the most important business decisions you are likely to make, which is why we all like to be certain that it is going to be worth it. A lot of people like to start by browsing award winning, beautiful website designs, or other creative and inspiring sites to emulate in some way.
