Great Catalog Design Tips To Make Your Customers Jump With Joy

Hi all,
As promised I am back and this time with something interesting!!

As I browsed through the net I realized that there was not even a single blog that gave tippers on catalog designing!?!??! Weird but true. So, I thought, I would do the net world another favor by adding a catalog design tips and tricks blog…. Enjoy reading another one of my informative blogs… As usual :D

Let us begin from the beginning of catalog designing. In its initial phase, catalogue design commenced as jam-packed, downscale, big books. But the recent years have seen much more avant-garde catalog designing. The unusual combination of colors, graphics and fonts have changed the entire appearance of catalog designs for good.

Back to the basics. Now, let us start discussing a few catalog design tips and tricks as contracted ;)

Tip #1
Remember to include the best photographs of the products you wish to sell. Your client wont be attracted to old and rotten products of yours. Whenever you design catalogs ensure to display your best front to them and they would become your immediate clients. :)

Tip #2
Always ensure that your catalog design has all the colors of your brands logo or is at least in harmony with it. Suppose your brand logo was in white and you choose your catalog designs background to be white as well. Evidently your logo would disappear in the background making all your efforts futile. Design catalogs whilst choosing a suitable color “combi” to make everything on it visible and beautiful.

Tip #3
Your catalog designs must have a perfect romance between your product images and description. Imagine what would a dog house with a doll house description look like… Neah… Right? :D

Tip #4
I am sure you would be the last person to agree if I advised you to create a
catalogue design for your jewelery store with nuts and bolts floating around. It would be a big turn off for your clients won’t it?? Obviously, why have something so mechanical where gorgeous pearls and diamonds can do the job. As I said you won’t take my advise on this.

Yeah, yeah. I know I am the best..Now don’t mention it. ;)

I’ll be back soon!!!! :D

Bespoke Website Designing: The English “tailor-made-suit” Web Mantra

Well, it takes my life when people ask “What is bespoke website designing?”. “Oh! Come on I say” to such people. I mean have people actually stopped reading web articles?? Anyways…there is no use lamenting on such trivial matters. So, for the convenience of those who ask me such vague and uninformed questions, here goes the explanation for the last time…

“Bespoke” is the web designing mantra of today. A Bespoke website design is much like the English process of stitching hand made suits that are customized to befit the individual.

Doesn’t the very term bespoke websites have a nice ring to it! I would say, it actually suits the very requirement of a website..just like a website must “be speaking” to you, so does the very name. Now the next question that props up is “What exactly does a custom website design comprise?”

For this query I would rather divide my answer into the following points:

#1 A bespoke website is structured and designed keeping the search engines in mind, so as to ensure that they are picked up in search results.

#2 The bespoke website design is created to enhance ease of use for the site visitor.

#3 A custom website design is essentially designed right from scratch. The designers come up with something totally unique yet fulfilling all the requirements of the client. Bespoke Website…remember! ;)

#4 Bespoke website designing must also be able to fetch higher page ranking for the clients. This is done through Search engine optimized content, design, alt tags and HTML.

#5 Most bespoke websites come along with site statistic monitors that can enable the client to see what kind of hits or exits the new site is receiving.

I hope, I have been able to answer all your queries about bespoke website design. So, don’t be a cookie cutter anymore. Liven up, now you know what bespoke websites are all about, won’t you?! :D

Branding Basics: Create A Magnanimous Logo Design

Your logo design is the virtual handshake that makes a first impression of your business. Trust me, a clammy and wimpy corporate logo design would not make much of a beseeching impact on your clients! If you are thinking about tempting your prospects to do business with you, then you better start off right away on creating a custom logo design that catches more than just the eye.

Let us cut the crap and begin with the branding basics ;) I would give you tippers on how to actualize the best logo design. Here goes….

1) Begin by checking your competition:
It might seem a little sneaky, but the best way to get a horde of customers on your doorstep is to check out what your competitions logo design looks like and reflects. You don’t want your corporate logo design to appear the same as theirs. And of course a better custom logo design than your competitors won’t hurt you :) Having a thorough look at your opponents company logo design would also give you an extra advantage of creating a unique logo design. Let your custom logo design be a box of all that you wish your customers to know about you.

2) Industry Fitting:
Get your priorities straight. If your corporate logo design is not relevant to what your business is all about your prospects would leave your website without a second thought. Imagine having a funky and upbeat logo design for a funeral home or a dull, boring and sleepy logo imagery for a Disc Jockey service provider :D Neither of the logo designs would jive with the business and would make the company logo design absolutely inappropriate. So, always ensure that your corporate logo design befits your industry of work.

3) A Balanced Logo Design:
Well, as obvious as it may sound to you, but always ensure that your custom logo design does not seem as simple as clip art nor too intricate to make your clients squint. It must be unrivaled and be able to stand out from the crowd, but it should also be as easy as ABC to understand.

Now, make a note of this: Your logo design must never go font crazy. It might look pretty to you, but the swirls and curves might be too confusing for your prospective customers.

That’s all folks!! Chiao :D


Pros And Cons Of Adding Forum Websites

Have you recently been struck by the lightening idea of adding a forum site to your existing website?? Well, better late than never, I would say. ;)

Yeah, that’s right! Adding forum websites to increase web traffic is now a norm and much appreciated fact. But, you better get disillusioned.. You ain’t gonna attract members instantly. You would have to have to wait for at least six months for your forum site to jump start into its blooming state. So, you better buckle yourself up for the pros and cons that you would have to face after you add a forum to your website.

Con: Whether you decide upon adding a chat forum, a community forum, a travel forum, a phpbb forum, a fan forum, free forums or general discussion forums, the initial stage would be the most difficult one. You would get hardly any traffic or comments.

Pro: Once you have passed this initial phase, people would become devoted to your forum websites and check out their messages on a regular basis.

Con: Your forum websites might be flooded by spammers on a look out for a forum site to paste their useless content. So, you would always have to be on a look out for such spam messages and members who join your forum only for clouting good-for-nothing communiqué and block them from your forum websites.

Pro: Many of the users would also add propitious content to your discussion forums. Such messages would add spice to your forum an attract traffic as well. That’s an added advantage of course ;)

Con: You might also have a problem regarding the management of the site. Once your forum site gets going, it would take extra time and effort on your part whilst registering people, monitoring messages and moderating topics. It might even end up to be a full time job for you. But, you can overcome this problem by taking the help of volunteers willing to become moderators for your forum websites.

Pro: The more moderators you have, the more expertized your forum discussions would be. Crackjack moderators would take care that the relevant topics are running, making your discussion forums more popular as trust worthy resources for applicable info.

Ok. my list can just go on and on, but all I would say to conclude is that a forum site is like an gargantuan stone ball that’s difficult to get started; but once it gets rolling it can make new ways for you towards success! :)
