SAY OF THE DAY

SAY OF THE DAY “You can’t ask customers what they want… By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.” – Steve Jobs   IN THE NEWS 4 Ways To Keep Your Website From Getting Hacked First line of network security is your staff.   4 Ways To Keep Your Website From Getting Hacked Small businesses are especially vulnerable to hacking because they usually lack the technology expertise and site security that larger companies have. They also suffer more if their lack of expertise slows repairs and their ability to get back to work. Business owners can lose significant online traffic and sales if their site lands on blacklists operated by Google and other search engines. Hackers are constantly breaking into innocent websites and using them to infect visitors with malware, lure them to dodgy sites and infiltrate databases to grab sensitive customer information. But you can avoid trouble — or eliminate it quickly — by taking some relatively simple steps. Here’s how to get started: 1) Keep your software up to date. Hackers aggressively target security flaws in popular Web software such as content management systems and blogging programs so they can attack websites en masse. Stay out of the line of fire by using the latest versions of software and applying security patches promptly. 2) Use strong passwords and keep them safe. Using strong passwords is crucial because hackers frequently attempt to crack or steal passwords for web software and FTP servers, which are computers that use the (more…)

Are we doing enough to support small business growth?

Are we doing enough to support small business growth? Brad Rosser, Non-Executive Chairman, Xref, does not believe the UK Government has a well-orchestrated plan for ongoing small business support. By Brad Rosser March 1, 2018 12:23 GMT     Pick up a batch of today’s newspapers and you’ll see divided opinions on the state and future health of UK plc like we’ve never experienced before. Personally, I think the views of the 100 leading economists who took part in the latest Financial Times annual predictions survey bear the most weight. They project growth to slow further still, to around 1.5 per cent in 2018, with business investment to remain on hold, interest rates to nudge up and consumers to curb spending as the uncertainty of Brexit continues to loom large. But, whatever opinion you choose to trust, it’s fair to say it’s hardly the ideal environment for start-ups to prosper and hatch into high growth businesses. What Support Network Does the UK Provide? Although the UK scores high in the OECD global ranking for number of start-ups created, it sits outside the top ten when it comes to fostering businesses that grow into established, medium-sized companies. This should be a red flag to any Government. It’s essential for a country’s start-up scene to be successful, given these companies represent a critical component of short-term economic success and will ultimately form the future business ecosystem. The UK Government has tried to implement a network of support services, such as the British Business Bank – (more…)

The abundance of new technologies and powerful opportunities in marketing can get overwhelming for a marketer. How in the world could you not feel lost in the jungle of solutions at your disposal? And if you use an agency, how can you know that it’s truly benefiting your company? Having conducted or supervised more than 900 digital campaigns, I’ve come across several dangerous traps that are initially hard to spot. This article will point out the four most common. 1. Don’t let the CTR deceive you  One of the most frequently used indicators of the effectiveness of online advertising is the clickthrough rate (CTR), the ratio of the number of clicks on an ad to the number of views. Imagine attractive advertising formats, beautiful graphics, and strong CTAs encouraging taking action. A customer clicks on the ad and lands on a website. But there’s a problem: The page is not consistent with the creative’s visual design, or the user is flooded with all kinds of information instead of with the information promised in the ad. The result: the visitor abandons the website, and the campaign results end up being far from satisfactory. Tip: It is important to focus not only on the aesthetics of the ad’s design but also on the (more…)
