Don’t sabotage your online business

Posted on November 30, 2010

There are many people who continually bemoan their inability to get a job, blaming their gender, nationality, age or other characteristics at fault. In reality, it is very often themselves to blame when they don’t land the job of their dreams. A job application starts with a Curriculum Vitae which is basically an advertisement for the job candidate. A CV which is dull won’t be read at all by the board of interviewers. A CV which is full of grammatical errors, punctuation and spelling errors will not be tolerated by (more…)

The advantages of putting content first

Posted on March 23, 2010

Website design should logically begin with content, letting the rest of the plan evolve around it. Oddly enough, the reverse of this is what tends to happen, with the words on each page of a website being added as an afterthought. Having spent most of the planning stages putting thought and effort into the design, probably using some Latin text, there is a mad scramble towards the end of the project to come up with some vaguely appropriate words. The thought of hiring experienced content writers may be seen as unnecessary because ‘anyone can write’ and there is the issue of all the money that has already been spent on the website.

This is unfortunate because putting content before design can have benefits that go far beyond the obvious ones of (more…)

Banish the content blues with article outsourcing

Posted on February 25, 2010

The provision of regularly updated content can be of considerable significance in a search engine optimisation campaign.

Testing new ideas

Posted on July 17, 2008

One of the things that we here at Stuck On Towers like to do is have ideas.  We have loads of whiteboards, and loads of ideas, and we put these ideas on the whiteboards and see which ones make sense.  Some make a lot of sense – for example, creating Stuck On was an idea on a whiteboard at one point.  So was selling web tools.   The only thing that wasn’t an idea on a whiteboard was the idea of getting whiteboards to put ideas on.

So what do we do with these ideas?  We test them.  You don’t think we would go telling people that web tools are great without first of all putting them on sites we own to test them do you?  Every idea that we have that makes it into production has been tested and retested to make sure that it works and will provide the required benefits to you.  All of our products and strategies that we offer as a company have been tested by us (repeatedly!) and work.  The ones that don’t work (and there are a couple..) you will never hear about from us, as if they don’t work, we don’t pass them on.
