Why websites should all be using video

Video continues to grow in popularity as a provocative way to share information online. When it comes to promoting and selling products or services, a video — or a series of them — can help spell out details, imbuing them with cinematic dimension.

Defining and describing a product or service is a common rationale for using video. Literally, the nuts-and-bolts mechanics of an object can be elegantly represented in a video.

Here are current examples of way that you can use videos well, to enhance the impression of what they’re offering.

-  You can invite prospective customers to view a short film in your homepage. The video can show a scenario, starring your product as an integral part of a workflow involving common roles, clearly labeled: designer, project manager, and client.

-  Video can be used to virtually provide a product demonstration. An online video tour can show off

your product’s features. A video acting as a background. For example when your customers view a product from your website, they can see a video playing behind its description. The video, acting as a background, allows the viewer to gain an idea of the speaker’s scale.

-   Using video as TV ads. Certain product areas of their website have sections dedicated to showcasing videos. For example the page for the iPhone 6 displays multiple cues directing users to relevant videos. These include product videos, the TV ads, and the specific keynote speech where the product was first introduced.

Conclusion

Beyond demonstrating functionality, video can help visitors visualize character of a brand and imbue
an appropriate mood. Some videos seek to convey the idea of a modern, comfortable home. Apple’s videos famously promote the simple elegance of their products. The videos for Harvest and Pencil show professional people hard at work in pleasant environments.

Every video will help to evoke a tone, crafted to align with the company and their identity or image. When used as part of an expression-making toolkit, video provides another opportunity of discovery, adjacent to other complementary ways of displaying information and visualizing a narrative voice. Videography is a companion method of communication to copywriting, photography, and illustration. What differentiates videography is the potential for moving image and sound to galvanize positive impressions.

With Comelite all your videos request will come true. Comelite offers a picture-perfect unification of business experience, first-rate techniques and developed project ‎management procedures to lead our clients to their business success.

Working closely with our clients, Comelite produces state of the art and contemporary video content through an ‎extensive variety of styles suited for the target audience.

Why Website Design is Important


You may ask yourself why seek help updating your current company website? Yes, your current company website looks outdated compared to the competition but does a credible, compelling website design really matter? Reluctantly, you seek out a design firm to give your firm’s website a face lift, but you are not completely convinced that a new design will generate new business. Despite your skepticism, a plethora of studies show a well-built website will generate better customer traffic and an improved user interface will increase conversion – generating new business at an exponential rate. But how? How can something as superficial as your company’s website design impact the success of a business? There are many reasons why a well designed website will attract your ideal customer and prompt dialogue with your firm. The following highlight the five key components that a web designer should keep in mind when designing a website:

Navigation
Possibly the most important part of a website is the navigation. The navigation of a website can make or break a site, which is especially true for robust websites with many pages. Website navigation typically includes a navigation bar or list of labels that differentiate the pages of the website. Good navigation should be easy to find and comprehend – making for quick and easy travel throughout the entire website. When designing navigation, web designers sometimes get carried away with designs and fancy typefaces. In most cases, over-simplified navigation maximizes ease of use for a wider range of customers. A good tip is that your firm’s website navigation should be so intuitive even your grandmother can understand it.

Brand Consistency
If your company has a logo and that logo is utilized frequently in print materials (i.e. business cards, pamphlets, letterheads, etc.), then the logo, logo/brand colors, brand messaging and imagery used for print must be carried over into the website design. It is important for your customers to be able to recognize your brand in all forms of communication so they associate your brand position and promise with your business. Often when the visual communication changes with a brand, it can cause customers to feel uncomfortable, which can cause them to create a negative association with your company.

Reading Patterns and SEO
Most people are comfortable reading a web page the same way they read a book, from top to bottom, left to right. Web designers also take this into account when designing for a website. Many designers make sure to place the most important information on the upper left hand column. This will help get the message across more effectively for website visitors who could be current or potential customers. But what many people do not know is that placing important information in these areas of a website also improves search engine optimization (SEO). When you include important company-related keywords into the html-based text, search engines such as Google and Bing are able to crawl your website easily, increasing your search engine placement and giving your website and firm more overall visibility.

Content
The content of your site is important for reasons besides the fact that it literally communicates your company’s brand position and promise. There are other very important elements that are considered when a copywriter creates the content and the designer creates the complementary visual environment for the content. Making the message short and to the point, yet warm and welcoming (depending on the industry) helps the reader to remember the message easier. Also, when there is too much text on a page, the page becomes visually cluttered making it more difficult for a reader to physically read the page, let alone remain interested in reading the page. By streamlining the content, the designer is then able to insert the text into their design, which typically includes plenty of negative space. This empty space lets the reader’s eyes rest so they do not tire of reading.

Trust
Building trust among your customers is extremely important, but will not happen unless you really get to know them and what they value. Marketing tactics can act as a dialogue with potential customers, which will be a great way to discover more about your clientele’s needs. By strengthening dialogue with customers, you can implement what positively resonates with them in your new design. By making your website look more welcoming and trustworthy to visitors, you will see the traffic to your website increase, and an improvement in new business leads through website conversion.

The Internet can be a scary place for people who are more accustomed to doing business face-to-face. It can bring back haunting scenes from the movie The Matrix, which might be great for certain industries. Most businesses are looking for something more welcoming than a confusing labyrinth of letters and numbers. Website design is a great way to create a user-friendly environment where people come for helpful tips and best practices. If a website is designed and managed properly, customers will continuously return to your site and do business with your company.

Let Your Values Drive Your Choices

Nearly every problem you face is temporary.

But these temporary problems cause immediate pain. And we often let this pain drive our choices and actions.

For example…
•An employee suffering from the pain of not feeling important enough or powerful enough might take a terrible job with a fancy title.
•An individual suffering from the pain of feeling unloved or unappreciated or misunderstood might try to resolve that pain by cheating on their spouse.
•An entrepreneur suffering from the pain of a faltering small business might resort to using questionable marketing tactics to try to drive more sales.

…and so on.

This is how you make choices you wouldn’t normally make. When you let the problem drive your decisions, you make exceptions and “just this once” choices to resolve the pain, annoyance, or uncertainty that you’re feeling in the moment.

How can we avoid this pitfall and make better long-term choices while still resolving short-term pain?

Here’s an approach I’ve been trying recently. See if it works for you…


Let Your Values Drive Your Choices

One of the solutions I’ve been trying out is to let my values drive my choices. That doesn’t mean I ignore other aspects of my decision making process. I simply add my values into the mix.

For example, if I’m working on a problem in my business, rather than just asking, “Will this make money?”

I can ask, “Is this in alignment with my values?” And then, “Will this make money?”

If I say no to either, then I look for another option.

The idea behind this method is that if we live and work in alignment with our values, then we’re more likely to live a life we are proud of rather than one we regret.

The Power of a Constraint You Believe In

Every decision is made within some type of constraint. Maybe it’s how much knowledge you have. Maybe it’s how much money you have. Maybe it’s how many resources you have. Why not what values you have?

Making better choices is often a matter of choosing better constraints. By limiting your options to those that fit your values, you are taking an important step to ensuring that your behavior matches your beliefs. (Plus, constraints will boost your creativity.)

Know your principles and you can choose your methods.

How to Put This Into Practice

Most people never take the time to think about their values, write them down, and clarify them. Maybe it sounds too simple or unnecessary.

For what it’s worth, my 2014 Integrity Report was the first time that I sat down to clarify my values and tie them directly to my work.

You are welcome to use that report as a template for discovering your own values and aligning them with your work and life.

The Bottom Line

He that always gives way to others will end in having no principles of his own.
—Aesop 

If you never sit down to think about your values, then you’ll be more likely to make decisions based on whatever information is in front of you at the time. That can be a recipe for regret down the road.

Life is complex and we are all faced with moments in our personal and professional lives that require us to make a choice without as much information as we need. The default assumption is that we need more knowledge or research in these situations, but often we just need a clear understanding of our values.

If you don’t know what you stand for and where you’re headed, then it’s far too easy to get off course, to waste your time doing something you don’t need to be doing, or to make an exception (“just this once”) that leads you down a dangerous path. There are brilliant men and women with decent hearts and families they care dearly about spending a long time in jail right now because they made business decisions that were based on the pain they felt and not the values they believed in.

Let your values drive your decisions.

Does My Business Really Need A Mobile App?

If you already have a mobile-friendly website, is an app a necessity? Contributor Daniel Cristo says you only need one if you don't want to fall behind the competition.


The single, most popular, mobile strategy question I get asked is, “Do I really need an app?”

The safest answer is always “It depends …” but I hate that answer, so I’d like to try and convince you that you do, indeed, need an app today, even if the payoff happens tomorrow.

Do I Really Need A Website?
Twelve years ago, as a college sophomore, I took a web design course. During the course, a classmate came up to me and told me that he liked my work, and he knew a business owner who was looking for someone to redesign his site. One thing led to another, and the classmate and I soon opened a boutique web design shop.

After we finished the first job, we decided a good way to drum up sales was to go door-to-door to each business in town, asking if they needed a website. We probably stopped by 100 businesses, and not a single one was interested (thankfully, my salesmanship has improved since then).

One of the sales trips stands out in my mind, even to this day. It was a Chinese buffet restaurant on the main street in town. I asked to speak to the owner.

“Hi, my name is Dan. Are you the owner?”
“Yes.”
“Nice to meet you. I run a small web design shop, and I was wondering if you guys have a website.”
“No.”
“Would you guys be interested in having a site created?”
“No.”
“Can I ask why not?”
“We have a sign. We don’t need a website.”

I didn’t want to argue with the guy, and I was pretty nervous anyway, so I just walked out and went to the next store.

I can look back today and chuckle at the owner’s ignorance. Of course he needed a website — he just didn’t know he needed one, because he didn’t understand the potential that a website held.

In all fairness, it was 2002. There was no Yelp. There was no Facebook, Groupon or YouTube. Digital photography was not readily available to the average person; so, most websites looked bad and functionality was worse. But, even so, most savvy business owners knew that having website was a good move.

My point is that while businesses in 2002 didn’t depend on websites and the internet as they do today, those that saw the potential and started building a web presence early benefited the most when consumers finally shifted their behavior to be more digital.

This is exactly where we stand today with mobile apps.

The Potential Of Apps
Those who think they don’t need a native mobile app because their site is mobile friendly are missing the huge potential apps have over websites.

When was the last time a customer took a picture of your product with your website?
When was the last time your website notified a potential customer of a sale as they walked by your shop?
When was the last time your website told you how a customer felt when they saw your product for the first time?
When was the last time your site told you the name of that customer who just walked through your shop’s door?
When was the last time your site adjusted the price of an item based on a customer’s social influence?
When was the last time a customer tried your product on, virtually on your site?
Biometrics, geo-location, cameras, sensors, augmented reality, 3D gaming… these are potential game-changers that already exist natively in mobile apps — features you won’t find on a traditional website. Not only that, but new functionality that we haven’t really thought of is going to be available to apps much sooner than they are for an HTML-based site, if ever.

Even if you don’t take advantage of those features today, just being on the right platform gets you 80% there.

Living In The Moment
You may be sitting there thinking, “Well, if some new killer technology comes to apps tomorrow, I’ll just build an app then. Why waste my time and energy today when it’ll basically do the same thing as my website?”

Let me ask you a question: Which is easier? Getting 100,000 new people to find, download and sign up for your app, or getting 100,000 people who have already downloaded your app to update it?

I hope that you would say it’s easier to update your app. After all, you already have their email address, and the platforms themselves prompt people to keep their apps up to date.

Even if you do nothing more than deliver a native reading experience for the content on your existing website, you can at least start building your app’s install base today. And with that install base will come ratings, comments, feedback and usage metrics that build trust and credibility with the platforms in the same way that aged links do with older websites.

Then when the shift happens and consumers are looking for apps with that killer new feature, you can focus on simply updating your app with the new feature while your competition scrambles to find a developer who can start building them an app from scratch.

Don’t Miss The Boat
I want to be clear about one thing — building an app isn’t all roses. It takes a significant amount of time, money and energy to build an app that people want to download and use. Even after you build the app it will need to be marketed and supported by your company.

These are all elements that need to be figured out at some point and then planned for. It’s how companies stay competitive in today’s marketplace. Look at it this way — if you can’t set aside the budget and resources for an app today, will you be able to do so when your sales are declining because customers “all of a sudden” decided that they prefer using your competitor’s app over your old website?

This is a not a tactical decision about whether $30,000 in app development has a greater return than $30,000 in website improvements. It’s a strategic decision to invest in a platform that can support the business infrastructure of tomorrow’s generation in the same way your website has supported your business for the last generation.

The app boat has already left the harbor. It’s not that you can’t wait for the next one, but if you do, is it going to delay your business to the point where you can’t catch up with the competition when you really need to?

What Do You Think?
Do you think that web technologies will keep pace with native mobile apps, or will apps ultimately force the retirement of its older web cousin?

Why Having a Good Website for a New Business


It’s no secret that almost all businesses need a web presence to compete in today’s digital age. This is especially true for new businesses, since having a good website is one of the most important business tools in helping them achieve their goals. Building a solid and positive web presence is key to their survival.

In the consumer’s eyes a website is a reflection of the business itself. If your website looks cheap and is difficult to use, consumers will assume that your products or services share these characteristics. A high quality, clean website is vital if you want customers to have a positive perception of your business.

Website design that is visually appealing will increase customer engagement. An increase in engagement will encourage customers to spend more time on your site leading them to view and process more information about your business.

If you are running an online business, having a poor quality website will almost certainly result in failure. Your website is the face of your business and a good website is critical. It doesn’t matter how much money you invest in perfecting your product or driving traffic to your site – if you website isn’t up to scratch there is little likelihood that customers are sticking around long enough to see what you have to offer.

Online businesses also need to keep in mind the quality and functionality of the e-commerce/shopping carts. If your website makes it difficult to purchase items due to poor design and maintenance you will be losing sales and money! The process of purchasing from your website should be as simple as possible.


Quality websites are also of great importance to brick-and-mortar storeowners in helping customers a) find their business and b) make the decision to visit the actual store. When looking for a particular product or service, the first thing most consumers do is carry out a search online. This allows customers to view and compare a large quantity of businesses without leaving their home. If your website is below par compared to your competition – chances are you’re missing losing customers before they’ve even taken the time to visit your store.

When convincing a customer to take the time to visit your store, quality web design is not enough. The content must be informative and engaging. Where possible you should provide as much information about your products, services, locations, opening hours and contact details as possible. If a customer has all this information readily available without having to carry out further searches that will be in a better position to make an informed decision about whether or not your business will be able to satisfy their needs.

At a minimum, both online businesses and brick-and-mortar stores should have a website that is clean, functional and informative to increase their chances of success.

The Importance of Having a Mobile Friendly Website


In 1997, there were approximately 1 million websites, and 10 years later, there were 150 million. In 2007, there were about 1 million mobile websites, and the number is supposed to reach 150 million by 2017. It is clear that mobile friendly websites are going to increase exponentially in the years to come. The internet started on the PC but with more than 3 billion mobile phones being used world wide, we are soon approaching a time when many people’s first internet experience will be through a mobile device. These rapid changes have left the business world with no choice other than to adapt to them. With mobile devices taking over the place of the PC, not having a mobile friendly website is like committing business suicide.


People want information and services, and they want them fast. With the advancement in technology, it is possible for you to access this information and the services through your cell phones. Those companies that have not yet adapted to mobile may miss this opportunity to attract customers. It has become very important for companies to be able to cater to their customers over mobile phones. A mobile is the most personal form of communication and is becoming a powerful one as well. If you can capture a customer on their mobile, then you have them on all other platforms as well.

The Fastest Growing Content Medium - Online Video

Why Online Video Is The Fastest Growing Content Medium

In the good old days everything was simpler. Everyone could work the TV as it only had a few buttons on the front of it, and you didn’t need a degree to understand everything that was happening on your car dashboard. And this was especially true of advertising.

If your company had a lot of money then you put it into TV advertising. Everybody watched TV and everybody watched the same programs at the same time.

If you didn’t have a lot of money then you would advertise in print magazines, or through local print mediums. Of course the Internet has smashed all that traditional ease to pieces.

The shift away from the TV set has made advertising online far more common, dramatically fragmenting the global marketplace.

With the rapid growth in faster broadband speeds and the increasing use of mobile device on the move, that shift has been increasingly into online video marketing.

Online Video Marketing Is Becoming A Huge Slice Of The Pie

The emergence of advertising formats that allow brands to easily integrate interactive content on to publisher sites has made it really easy to undertake online advertising campaigns.

When you add to that mix the development of social platforms to deliver video, you can see why video advertising is growing. To give you a sense of the scale, advertising spend on online video content jump to 34% in 2014 alone.

Annual growth is predicted to be almost 30% until in 2017 it will account for nearly 4% of total global advertising spend,  double its current rate.

Trust is the other side of the coin which is allowing video advertising to grow so dramatically.

End users are beginning to trust video content implicitly. This is because sites like YouTube, and every day delivery through mobile phones has normalized online video consumption.

Advertisers are also gaining trust. The days of scamming people through miss-counting views and clicks, or redirecting people to poor quality sites are coming to an end in mainstream advertising.

Instead, high-quality ad serving platforms are working with advertisers to deliver high levels of security and analytical data they can use to refine their campaigns.

Inspiration of the becoming a customer at Comelite Architecture & Structure (CAS)

Our formation was solely based on developing individual Architecture & Structure skills. Just like nature though this development grew strong and rapid due to committed work and lots of effort. By focusing on our main powers we are now able to manage 20 projects a month.

My tool of action is Auto CAD and for that I take over the CAD designing and use the software packages to design your new extension or conversion very quickly and efficiently. I use your given measurements to create the required turn around then return it back to you for commission.

Next I offer you illustrations to help visualize how your new extension or conversion would look, and I will continue to redesign your proposals until you are 100% happy with the design. From here I can finalize the plans ready for submitting to your local authority as a formal planning application or for a lawful certificate.

About surveying; it has always worked best to receive your own hand drawn sketches, illustrating your idea because it brings out the true nature of your necessity. At least it gives us a heads up to what you are expecting.

Once we have copied all of our data from the survey onto the computer we can start to design your new extension or conversion and email to you any sketched illustrations that will help you visualize the proposals more easily. By this point, the majority of our responsibility to achieve the final work is complete.

For accurate plans, once we have the design that you are happy with, we will finalize the accurate planning drawings which will include the existing and proposed floor plans and elevations, illustrations, block plans and location plans.


 We take care of all the council documents and the submission of your application and liaise with the council throughout the planning process.

10 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About The Universe

We live in a big big world. While the earth is big, measuring over 7,900 miles in diameter, it’s nothing compared to the universe itself. Our Sun is just an average star, just one of billions in the Milky Way Galaxy, and there are countless galaxies in the known universe. Sound crazy? That’s just one of the mind blowing facts about our universe that will make you realize just how special and unique the world we live in truly is.

1- Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is HUGE

The Great Red Spot found on the planet Jupiter is a persistent anti-cyclonic storm, located just south of Jupiter’s equator. Storms of this nature have an average life of at least 150 years but the Great Red Spot of Jupiter is anything but average. Not only is it three times the size of planet Earth, but it was reportedly in existence way back in 1665 as observed by astronomer Giovanni Battista Riccioli. Talk about a massive storm!




2- Earth Shares It’s Orbit Around the Sun

When you look up in the night’s sky, you’ll no doubt see what you might think is Earth’s one and only Moon. While there are a number of celestial bodies that the Earth shares the Solar system with, there’s one you may not know about: Cruithne. Say what? Believe it or not, Cruithne was discovered in 1986 is a co-orbital object with the Earth, mean that it shares a similar orbit with it around the Sun. While it is too small to be a planet, it is considered a minor planet.


3- A Mars-sized Planet Slammed Into Earth Billions of Years Ago

In what is known as the “giant impact hypothesis”, it is believed that Earth’s Moon was formed out of the debris left over from a collision between the Earth and an astronomical body the size of Mars over 4 billion years ago – just 100 million years after the solar system itself was formed. It is currently the best explanation we have for why the Earth has a Moon, supported by the fact that both the Earth and the Moon have iron cores and similar mineral compositions.



4- It Takes Charged Particles 170,000 Years Go From The Sun’s Core To The Surface

While the exact time it takes for a charged particle to escape the Sun’s core is at best a guess made by NASA, it takes a long time no matter how you slice it. Light travels at a speed of 300,000 km/sec which of course means that it should escape the Sun’s core rather quickly. Hwoever, a fraction of a second doesn’t pass without it running into another photon – thanks to the intense pressure due to the Sun’s density. These constant mini collissions and unimaginable pressure at the Sun’s core make it hard for particles to escape.

5- We Know The Exact Distance To The Moon

Throughout NASA’s Apollo Program, multiple mirrors were placed on the surface of the Moon. Why you ask? In order to reflect lasers and, because we know the speed of light, allows scientists to calculate the distance from the Earth to the Moon. The mirrors were placed as part of Apollo Missions 11, 14, and 15 and the mirrors are still being used to this day.




6- Planetary Discoveries Are Increasing Exponentially

Way back in 1995, the first confirmation of an exoplanet (a planet outside our Solar System) orbiting a main-sequence star was made. A giant planet was found in a four-day orbit around the nearby star 51 Pegasi. Since then, we have come a long way. At last count, mankind as identified over 1,900 of these alien worlds with no signs of stopping. Over 900 of these planets were found in 2014, making scientists wonder just how many will be found in 2015 and in the years ahead.

7- Jupiter Could Have Been A Star


The planet Jupiter is enormous. It has a diameter of 89,000 miles at its equator and, if you could move them, every single planet including fellow gas giant Saturn would fit inside it. The sheer size of Jupiter, and the fact that it is a gas planet, has led many to conclude that it could have been a Star. While this is true, it has been calculated by NASA that Jupiter would need to be 80 times larger in order to become an average sized star. Keep trying Jupiter!


8- Mars Has A Mountain Bigger Than Everest

Though a human hasn’t climbed it (yet) Mars has something to offer thrill seeking mountain climbers: a mountain taller than Mount Everest. Just how tall, you ask? Try three times has high as Mount Everest. Mar’s Olympus Mons, which is Latin for Mount Olympus, is an enormous volcano found on the fourth planet from the Sun and rises from the surface almost 16 miles. Geologists will be interested to know that the way Olympus Mons formed is similar to the way the Hawaii Islands were formed.



9- It Takes The Sun A Long Time To Rotate Around The Galaxy

The Earth takes 365 days to revolve around the Sun, an object it happens to be 93 million miles from. What you may not know is that the Sun does some revolving of its own – around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. But it takes longer, much, much longer, to make this journey. The Milky Way Galaxy is so huge, that it takes over 225 million years for the Sun to complete an orbit around the Galaxy. The last time the Sun was in its current position in the Milky Way Galaxy dinosaurs walked the Earth!

10- The Sun Is Ridiculously Far Away

We all know that the Sun is the star that all the planets in the Solar System revolve around. You might think that the Earth is relatively close given that it just takes just 365 days to make one orbit, but you’d be wrong. The Earth is a whopping 93 million miles from its star. A distance so far that it takes light itself over 8 minutes to reach Earth. It would take a driver traveling at 65 mph an astonishing 163 years to drive to the Sun.
