Do you need to rebrand your business?

Your brand is the public face of your business.
No business today can afford to rest on its laurels. Your business may be keeping up with economic and market changes but is your brand keeping pace?

Whatever your reason for rebranding; be it economic and operational expansion, technological innovation, growth and  change, your company’s brand must remain consistent with the latest and greatest your business has to offer.

Is you logo still modern or could it be refined to meet current design trends? Have you introduced social media? Is your website up to date, current, fresh & modern? Are your business and profile photo’s current?

Benefits of a rebrand: –

1. Gain competitive advantage
2. Stimulate growth
3. Long-term market expansion
4. Innovation = profitability

At Design House I completely rebrand my website and promotional images at least every two years. Check out the new portfolio section of my website HERE!


How to set up a Facebook page for your business

How to set up a Facebook page for your business

These days, creating a Facebook page for your business is no longer a luxury.

Many small, medium and large businesses are using Facebook as a successful vehicle for promoting their brands and engaging with existing and potential customers  – and when set up and maintained correctly, you can reach far more users than you’ve been getting to previously.

A Facebook Page is free to set up, can be configured in less than five minutes (for a basic page), and doesn’t require any previous web development experience – although adding some of the more advanced interactive features are a little trickier.

Get started …. more info here!

What is QR Reader for iPhone?

September 12, 2011

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g. binary, alphanumeric, or Kanji symbols).

Created by Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. The QR code was designed to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed.[2

Billboards My Favourite!

August 11, 2011

You probably don’t know that a Billboard is one of the most cost effective and useful advertising tools a business can have and if you chose the right site a very affordable monthly outlay!!

It’s something that is viewable 24 / 7 (especially if you use reflective material) and your skin / creative can lasts for years.
It is far cheaper than paper advertising that is thrown in the bin that day!

Keep your message ‘SIMPLE’, colourful, roughly seven words, choose a great location and wait for the feedback / enquires to come in!!

Add an extension to create the WOW factor!

I’m sure yours will look as ‘HOT’ as mine which has over 7,000 cars passing it every day!!

Is it time for your business to ‘Hit the Highway’ ??

Design House website undergoes a Revamp!

February 24, 2011

Design House website undergoes a Revamp!It’s very important that every couple of years you give your business look a revamp / overhaul to keep in line with current design trends, if not sooner!

Websites require continuous refinement and improvement to keep content fresh and the look and feel visually pleasing.

A revamp does not mean one has to completely overhaul the website – do small incremental changes that lead to a new template design / website look, perhaps color revision or updated content.

If your website is out of date and obsolete it can potentially lose customers for your business.

While it is important that your website looks clean and professional, it is more important that you concentrate your efforts on the content, promotion of your product / services, the use of a simple straight forward navigation and make sure it downloads fast.

About SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

February 24, 2011

Building great content and keeping it up to date is the key to SEO, when writing your content use informative, qualitative and creative words that you think your potential clients would google for. Google searches through your site for these words which helps with your Google Rank.

Another way to increase your sites page rank is to submit it to local business directories once completed. This will increase back links which will be good for search engine results.

Add a blog … they are a great way to get traffic to your website. You can add fresh content easily and regularly. Search engines love fresh content! Blogs increase in size overtime and can provide a distinct SEO advantage.

Websites designed by Design House generally come up first listing, first page for their business name and some related google searches but it is not possible to guarantee coming up first for every search. We certainly do everything possible to give your business website the best chance.

There are just far too many bigger (numerous pages), larger businesses / companies and longer established websites which google gives more importance to out there for you to come up first for a search of every single possible key word related to your business. However, we can construct your website to target your businesses most important keywords.

Once your website goes live it takes up to three weeks for google to start indexing … and then you can see how your website starts to rank.
