Welcome to the slightly late edition of Website.World
Beautiful product photos, and a design customisation for large thumbnails with hover text, make an elegant catalogue.
We have introduced a new drag and drop editor mode for single design pages. The new editor makes it easy to produce beautiful content, with well proportioned image sizes and text blocks.
If you prefer to to use the old editor mode, please change the editor mode in the top right corner to TinyMCE 3.5 which is our old version. There are also several other content editors you might like to try.
There is also a Drag and Drop version for creating email templates. This email was written using the new drag and drop editor.
Gosweetspot is now connected with website builder shopping cart... you can do the setup inside gosweetspot.
We are now utilising IP address lookups to determing what country a web visitor originates. If the web visitor originates from USA, and you have US$ option on your website, we will default the currency select on the website to US$, so that your US customers have a seemless experience. We have attempted to map the best currency for all geographical situations. Please let us know if there is any combination which is not working for your customers
Network NZ is a great support network for NZ businesses. One of the largest and best run nz business networking groups on facebook now has a website of it's own, powered by our very own website builder..
Blog Tags are now available. When you have a long archive of blogs, you can use "keyword tags" to help your readers navigate to blogs on similar topics. The most popular keyword tags on all your blogs will be listed in the archive column.
We have design consultants from all over who can take your website to the next level. All Web Designers are independent businesses who will bill you directly for their time.
If you require personalised training, please contact one of our consultants, who are based all over. Several consultants also provide over the phone and web based training at a scheduled time.
We would encourage all customers to get at least one hour of training at the early stages of building their website, and one more review prior to going live, just to give your website that professional critique, and quick tidy up of the rough bits.
Training topics include:
How to use website builder and shopping cart
How to design websites
How to crop and tidy up photos
How to optimise to get your website higher on google and other search engines
How to setup a facebook page, or other social media account
How to send newsletters
How to use any other feature we offer.
Caching speeds up your computer, but it also causes confusion when viewing changes to your website. Every web master needs to become familiar with this concept. Almost a third of all our support tickets relate to mis understandings about caching. We can't change the nature of the internet, we only educate.
We have teamed up with the awesome 2talk team to offer you some great broadband options. If you have become disgruntled with your current isp, now is the time to get a great bundled broadband offering.
Do you need an 0800 number for your business? We think 2talk provide a really awesome service, and it's who we use. For example, you have an 0800 number call your landline first, then your mobile, then your 2IC's mobile to ensure that somone will take the call. Their rates are cheap, and all the value added services can be managed via a web page control panel, so you don't need to wait on hold for any call centers. You can manage your lines fully yourself.
Did you know that if you refer a friend to use our awesome website builder service, you get a 25% discount off your hosting? If you refer 4 friends, then you will essentially get your web hosting for free! Not only that, but your friends will also get their 2nd month web hosting absolutely free. That's a nice little encouragement for them to check our service out and gives us the opportunity to setup your discount. Both discounts apply for your 2nd and subsequent websites also. It doesn't matter if it is yours, a friend, family or a stranger. Discounts begin once both websites are live. Please make sure you or your friend communicates the referral at the earliest opportunity.
We have an awesome new offer for web designers and awesome business networkers. We can setup any web designer who is interested with all they need to get started as a web designer at no cost:
