Why mobile friendly web design matters

iphone

Your site should be mobile friendly.

Web design focuses on user experience now more than ever. Site traffic is becoming more dependent on how visitors experience your website. If the links take too long to load, or there are many 404 pages, it will discourage them from coming back.

But that’s basic knowledge. You already know that. What you may be wondering about is why web developers go on and on about mobile-friendly design. It’s extra work, but it’s part of the many web design company services that should be given importance. Why?

You’re living in a mobile world
When you wake up, when you’re travelling to work, when you’re doing your business in the bathroom–you’re holding your phone and looking at something. The increased number of wi-fi hot spots (even cabs have wi-fi now) prove that people browse the internet with their phones more often than ever before.

When they stumble upon your website, they’re expecting it to fit to their little mobile screens. If your website is only suited for desktop view, they’re going to have a hard time navigating.

If you sell products online, you have to be sensitive to who your buyers are and what they use to visit your web shop. And while mobile phones are usually used for social media, what you might not know is that…

Social media increases site traffic
Facebook ads link to websites. Links shared in social media lead back to the website. Any content you generate that you post on your social media account will lead back to your website. Any company who has a social media page puts their website on the About page. That way, it’s easier to locate their site and find out more information about their products or services.

If you have a web shop, this is crucial.

Imagine how disappointed people will be if they reach your site and find out they have to manually scroll horizontally just to see the continuation of a product’s description. It’s annoying and an immediate turn off.

If they’re not given an incentive to share your links or put them on their blog, it might affect your search rankings. Not only that…

Mobile-responsive Design Improves SEO
Google prefers mobile-friendly websites, but why? Because it gives users a better experience. Remember, SEO isn’t just about keyword placement or meta-descriptions. It’s about your entire website optimized for better user experience. This is why responsive sites generally have higher rankings in search engines.

Don’t fall behind. If your site isn’t suited for mobile devices yet, it might be the reason why your business is stagnating. Contact a professional web design company services now and get a kick start on a mobile-responsive website.

How to Use Able2Extract Pro 11

How to convert PDF files.

Working in an office environment involves a constant interaction between you and your colleagues. Besides the usual small talk, that interaction often includes the exchange of work documents and necessary data information.

This data involves various reports, project plans and invoices that come in PDF which, as we all know, cannot be easily edited. In that case, it would be useful to have a PDF conversion software, which can help in extracting and converting any information from all those different PDF files.

Able2Extract Professional 11 offers these features because it works with all popular document formats. Using it, you can convert PDF, not only to Word, but also to Excel, PowerPoint, AutoCAD and other file types. And with added Optical Character Recognition technology, the tool enables you to convert scanned documents into fully editable files as well.

Here is how the software works.

First, you need to open your PDF file and select the area that you wish to convert.

Second, you need to choose the desired format. The conversion format that you’ve chosen depends on what you plan to do with the converted file.

For example, if you are preparing a presentation, it is best to use PowerPoint. On the other hand, for tables and numbers, Excel is the right format. Click on the desired icon and the conversion will start automatically.

The tool also has the ability to create PDF documents by automatically converting almost any digital format to a PDF.

This feature is very simple to use.

You only need to select the Create button from the top menu bar. After choosing your desired file, the software will automatically open it as a PDF. Save the newly created document and you are good to go.

As for PDF editing, you can use an advanced text editor inside Able2Extract to quickly edit PDF content, modify pages and perform various text alterations. You can even combine multiple PDFs into one document or split one PDF to several separated files.

Version 11 comes with 10 possible annotation methods you can use to make your PDFs a bit more eye-catchy.

You can add sticky notes, watermarks, stamps, hyperlinks, attachments and much more.

These are the just some of the new features you get with Able2Extract Professional 11. The tool is among the top PDF solutions currently available, and by installing it, you will have no need for any other PDF software.

It is, in many ways, a useful product that can increase your office productivity and resolve most, if not all, of your PDF management problems.

A single-user license costs $149,95 but I strongly recommend to download 7-day free trial and test it for yourself.

Merry Christmas!

Have a great Christmas. Take the time to celebrate your desires, values and affections with your loved ones. Love, joy and peace are the ingredients for a wonderful Christmas. We hope you find them all festive season.

Wishing you all the best. Have a Merry Christmas!

Bingo is more fun online!

Online bingo is fun!

Tired of fonts and design? Join the online bingo revolution! Did you know that you can play bingo on the web? It is fun and exciting, and just like poker and casinos you can win big money.

Today, thousands and thousands of bingo-enthusiasts enjoy their hobby online. They flock to the many, many online bingo halls that have sprung up during recent years.

By playing online games you enjoy many great benefits. For one thing, you can play whenever you want: several online bingo halls are open all day and all night. And who can forget the fact that the jackpots on offer can be staggeringly huge. Fancy winning several hundred thousand euros on bingo? In cyberspace, you can!

And that’s not all: many online bingo halls give away free money to play for, and you can pick and choose among all kinds of exciting bingo formats.

Last but not least, you should be aware that online bingo is highly sociable. You can talk with other players and make new bingo friends whilst playing.

Read on to find out more about the exciting world of online bingo!

You can play bingo 24/7 online
Bingo halls in the real world have opening hours that can be more or less restrictive. Far from all are open every day of the week. None are open every hour of the day.

On the web things are different. You can find bingo halls online that offer live draws constantly, all day, every day.

This means that top-of-the range bingo action is available whenever you feel like playing. Thinking about hurrying in order to get to the bingo hall on time, or worrying that it will close before you have won big are things of the past.

Now you’re in charge, and you can play bingo whenever you want.

Not all online bingo halls are open through the night, but all hold frequent draws. You never have to wait long to play. With multiple bingo rooms each, there’s always action to be had.

You can win huge jackpots!
You might not associate playing bingo with earning huge cash prizes, but online you can win bigger than big these days! Some bingo providers offer jackpots exceeding 200,000 euro in value.

This means that you can win enough money to buy a nice house, simply by shouting “bingo!”

Obviously, this is an important reason why so many players go online these days. And even if you don’t cash in a fortune, you will notice that the cash prizes on offer generally are very generous.

In order to win a bingo jackpot on the net, you are required to get a full house within a certain number of balls drawn. How many depends from bingo hall to bingo hall, and jackpot to jackpot.

Especially two bingo providers have become famous for their big jackpots. They are Unibet Bingo and Maria. To find out more about how much you can win, and how you do it, you can check out one of the informative bingo sites online.

Play bingo for free online!
Not only can you win hundreds of thousands on bingo online, you can even do it without risking a single cent of your own money!

Incredibly, many bingo providers pay new customers to play with them. As soon as you open an account, they will give you a certain sum of money that you can buy bingo tickets with. This offers you the chance to enjoy yourself on the house, and of course the chance to make a little money for yourself!

The reason bingo halls are this generous is that they feel certain that you will be impressed with their service offering, and choose to play more with your own money. However, you are under no obligation to do so. You are entirely within your rights to play for the free gift, and then simply walk away.

Usually, you can receive between 5 and 10 euros as a free gift like this.

If you are after a more substantial amount of free bingo money, you need to make a deposit. It so happens that when you transfer money to a newly opened bingo account, you will usually receive a bonus.

Such bonuses are usually worth 100% of the deposit you made. That means that you can play for twice as much as you pay for!

This type of bonus always has an upper limit. It is usually in the low 100s, but offers worth up to 1000 euros exist.

The choice of different formats is huge!
You will find it hard to get bored as an online bingo player. Regardless of what type of bingo you prefer, you will find your favorites. And if you are in an adventurous mood, you can experiment with all kinds of wacky bingo formats.

The two most popular bingo formats are 90-ball bingo and 75-ball bingo. In some countries, the latter dominates, whereas in others, the first holds sway. You will find both – in abundance – with all bingo halls on the web.

Many bingo enthusiasts who have been playing one of these formats all their lives, find it very exciting to try the other one!

But 90-ball and 75-ball are just the tip of the iceberg! Big online bingo halls also offer up 80-ball bingo, as well as all kinds of other types, such as pattern bingo and so on.

Online bingo is sociable fun!
A common misconception is that playing bingo on your computer is somehow not as sociable as playing in “real life”. Nothing could be further from the truth!

When you play bingo online you can chat with other people, and engage with the bingo hosts. This gives you the chance to get to meet other bingo fans from around the globe. You can talk about bingo, or anything else that you fancy. Many friendships have been established via the bingo hall’s chat function.

Compare this to going to your local bingo hall. You might run into acquaintances you have known a long time, but are you really likely to meet your new best friend?

Some online bingo halls also arrange trips and events where their members can meet and enjoy each other’s company.

Choosing Colors For Your Opt-In Page

choose-colors

Choose colors wisely.

One VERY overlooked aspect when designing an opt-in page (or even a sales page) is how color will affect your opt-in rates. You should choose the colors for your background, graphics, arrows, bullets, button, and opt-in box in order to achieve the result you want. Please note that colors have different meaning in different cultures.

• Blue – Using navy blue with gold is the best combination when targeting men and the second best when targeting women. Blue is the favorite color of men so you might want to use blue if your target audience is men.

• Pink – Pink is associated with femininity, sensuality and romance. Use pink if promoting to women, especially if the product you are promoting is associated with romance or sensuality.

• Green – Green is associated with health so use green if you are promoting a health related product. Dark green is associated with wealth. Use dark green if you are promoting a money-making product. Blue greens are the most accepted color group for both genders.

• Purple – Since approximately three-fourths of pre-adolescent children prefer purple to any other color, use bright purple when your product is targeted towards children.

• Black – Black is associated with authority, reliability, and elegance. Use black if your product is associated with any of these.

• Red – Use red as an attention getter as this color creates feelings of excitement or intensity. It works better as an accent color rather than a background one.

• Turquoise – Turquoise is associated with emotional healing. Light turquoise is considered feminine. Turquoise is popular with both men and women.

• Yellow – Yellow can increase irritability so it should only be used as an accent.
Since yellow is the most attention-getting color, use this color to highlight important points. Men associate yellow as being untrustworthy so don’t use yellow if trying to sell an expensive item to men.

• Gold – Gold is associated with wealth, masculine power, happiness, wisdom, and attainment. Using gold with navy blue is the best combination when targeting men and the second best when targeting women.

• Orange – Orange is the color most associated with appetite so it would be a good color choice if you are promoting food products, cookbooks, etc. Orange is associated with cheap so using orange can make your product seem more affordable. However, orange is one of the least favorite colors in the US.

• Brown – Brown is associated with comfort, security, reliability, and credibility. Light brown conveys genuineness.

• Gray – Gray enhances the psychological response of other colors. Dark gray would be a good color for any text if you don’t want to use black.

• Silver – Silver is associated with high-tech, graceful aging, communication, and, riches. Use silver with gold and white to promote a feeling of control and power.

The age of your audience affects what colors you should use. In general, children prefer bright colors while adults prefer more subdued colors.

The gender of your audience also plays a part in your color selection. Men prefer cooler colors while women prefer warmer ones. Red, orange, and yellow are exciting colors (warm) while purple, blue, and green are calming ones (cool).

Also keep in mind when choosing colors that some men, as well as a small percentage of women, have some form of color deficiency and are unable to see certain colors. Red-green color blindness is the most common form, followed by blue-yellow color blindness and total color blindness. Red-green color blindness affects up to 8% of males and 0.5% of females of Northern European descent. The ability to see color also decreases in old age.

Working class visitors to your opt-in page will prefer named colors such as red, blue, purple, green etc. while more educated visitors will prefer more obscure colors such as mauve, taupe, salmon, violet, etc.

As you can see, the colors you choose will depend on the audience you wish to target. Before choosing a color scheme, spend some time thinking about who you will be targeting. Remember, no matter how much you like a color scheme, your goal is to elicit a specific response from your target audience.
