I use them all for testing purposes but for general purposes I use Firefox.
Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, etc.
I don't have a favorite, but certain social media is more suited to certain types of businesses.
Learn programming and scripting languages. There are a lot of designers out there that are very talented. The competition is fierce. But if you learn programming and scripting, you not only set yourself apart, but you can then create and sell your own software and apps directly to businesses and end users.
I don't have a favorite. Each language is designed for specific needs. I love Java and C++ for it's software development capabilities and I love PHP and JavaScipt for web development.
That's really not a logical question. We would never choose just one. Very often you need to use multiple languages to build one end product. For example, Firefox itself is built with multiple languages:
Rendering engine: Gecko, C++
So to pick just one language makes no sense. ;)
Phone apps and mobile browsing. Seems obvious, and it is. ;)
My typical clients are businesses from small to large and non-profits.
I work on a lot of different types of websites including ecommerce, news, nonprofit, subscription-based sites, etc.
Know your budget, your competition, and your target market and clearly define your goals with specific examples of what you're looking for.
Think in terms of how you can decrease the amount of time it will take to develop your site. And the biggest way you can do this is through effective and efficient communication.
For example, when you ask a designer to draw up a design and you don't give them any specific examples to refer to, you are going to add at least a week of design time since you and the designer will need to go back and forth with designs you probably don't even remotely like just to get within the ballpark of what you are looking for.
And if your designer charges by the hour, that's an unnecessary amount of money you're spending.
Even if your designer charges by the project, it's really a waste of time and will likely cost you valuable time in terms of getting your site up by your deadline.
I always ask my clients to provide links to their competitors' sites, and to sites that are visually what they are looking for. And before I begin a design we nail down all the elements needed and crystallize it in the contract.
The biggest problem I've have with new clients is clients communicating what they want. Sounds basic, but it's more of a struggle than you'd think. ;)
Many times clients want to simply hand over the work of designing a site to the designer thinking that all they need to do is say, "I want a great site. Do it."
Clients need to understand that this is a collaborative effort and that they will be very involved in the process throughout the development of their site.
We've been designing and developing websites for over 10 years. With that, We're highly experienced with SEO/SEM, content creation, internet marketing, split-testing and analysis. We've worked with local small businesses like Scripps Mesa Glass, national companies like Direct Commerce, and international companies like Forbes Magazine. We've also worked with nonprofits like The American Liver Foundation.
We love learning about the businesses our clients are involved in. We've worked with stores, nonprofits, theaters, magazines, b2b businesses, national and international businesses, etc.
Each client is unique and that's what makes things interesting for us.
Not always. In some cases, we may use something like BaseCamp, SalesForce or Zoho, etc, but often we use our specific set of documents to work through the process clearly.
However, if a client wants to use a specific CRM, we're more than happy to consider it.
No, but to give you an idea of us versus our competitors, here is a basic breakdown of the average cost versus our average cost:
