Event on 2016-12-05 09:00:00
Was Sie erwartet Das Thema »Responsive Web Design« bewegt wie Web-­Szene nun bereits seit einigen Jahren. Doch unter »responsive« verstehen sowohl Kunden als auch Agenturen oft lediglich die Optimierung einer Website für Smartphones und Tablets. In Wahrheit ist Responsive Web Design eine neue Philosophie im Web Design und erfordert ein Umdenken bei Kunden, Kundenberatern, Konzeptionern, Projektleitern, Designern und Entwicklern. Worum es geht Erfolgreiche responsive Projekte werden interdisziplinär umgesetzt. Jeder Projekt-Mitarbeiter muss daher verstehen was die Kollegen machen und in welchen Bereichen sich Schwierigkeiten ergeben. Kundenberater und Projektleiter wiederum bilden die Schnittstelle zum Kunden und müssen dafür sorgen, dass der Kunde die Vorteile des »neuen« Workflows versteht und in jeder Phase des Projekts von der Agentur geleitet wird. Was Sie lernen werden Angefangen bei den Grundlagen von Responsive Design über Layoutmuster, Touch-Screen-Optimierung und Navigationskonzepte bis hin zu konzeptionellen Ansätzen wie Mobile First und Progressive Enhancement werden Sie in diesem Seminar alle Aspekte von Responsive Design kennenlernen, ohne dabei tiefer als notwendig in die technischen Details einzusteigen. Anhand praxisorientierter Übungen lernen Sie, wo die Herausforderungen im Responsive Webdesign liegen, wie Sie Fehler in Gestaltung und Entwicklung vermeiden können und was Sie bei der Planung und Kommunikation von responsiven Websites beachten sollten. Wer teilnehmen sollte Dieses Seminar richtet sich an Konzeptioner, Designer, Projektleiter, Kundenberater und an alle Interessierten, die von konzeptioneller, strategischer und organisatorischer Seite in das Thema »Responsive Design« einsteigen möchten.

New Rules of Business will open your eyes to an array of fantastic new tools, strategies and ideas that are available to you right now. From savvy online strategies, to outsourcing, social media avenues and more, you’ll learn how you can reach more of your ideal clients, grow revenue and get more done with greater efficiency than ever before. You’ll be amazed at how easy and inexpensive they are. And you’ll be blown away by their ability to radically transform how much more you can get done with little cost or direct involvement by you. Spend just one day at New Rules of Business and you’ll come away with a host of practical cutting edge ideas that will make many business processes effortless and stress-free. What’s more, you’ll gain a renewed sense of energy and focus about what’s possible for you to achieve personally and professionally. Hundreds of business owners who’ve attended have gone away and immediately applied the ideas they learned. In doing so, they’ve revolutionised their business and refueled their passion for it. Better yet, they’ve created more clarity and confidence about where they’re headed, as well as more free time for themselves. Something shifts in people’s minds after they’ve attended this event. It’s like they’re seeing their business through a completely different lens and it’ll never be the same again.   New Rules of Business Gives you a ton of practical, meaty information you can implement straight away and start reaping the rewards in your business.   Does your website attract and convert plenty of ideal clients? If not, you’re not alone. Many businesses have websites that fail to be found, or have content or functionality that does not engage the clients they’re seeking. But it’s not that hard to change this. There are many simple and inexpensive ways you can capitalise on the potential your website has to offer – and generate more sales as a result. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Reach more prospective clients through smart domain names Create lead magnets that convert visitors into clients Ensure your website is responsive on mobile devices and easy to update Structure landing pages for successful, targeted promotions Integrate all of your online activities to generate powerful results   Your website is one of the most critical tools in your marketing kit. Learn the tips and tricks to avoid the website mistakes most business owners make that waste time and sabotage their success.   Is it easy for you to step away from your business to travel, or to simply spend time with your family enjoying life? For many business owners, this is something they dream of, but struggle to actually do. Or when they are away from their business, there’s a nagging worry at the back of their mind about what might be going wrong without them. Systems are the answer. And forget about outdated policy and procedures manuals. At New Rules of Business you’ll learn an easy way to create online systems that are incredibly user-friendly. You’ll also get a glimpse inside our business where you’ll see how you can manage your business and train new staff – all without even being there. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Unpack your knowledge into a simple system your staff can follow Create a consistent, reliable experience for your clients Grow your business rapidly through scalable, replicatable systems Gain greater visibility over the status of internal processes Multiply the value of your business by eliminating its dependence on you   Effective systems give your business the structure it needs to flourish without you. This gives you the freedom to work on your business instead of in it. It also means you create more time for you to simply relax and enjoy life.   How much is your time worth? As a business owner, you already have plenty on your plate each day. But among this, there are likely to be many boring or repetitive tasks that don’t need to be done by you. More and more business owners are turning to outsourcing as a way to streamline their personal load and the demands on their team, and to get more done. They’re able to use their time more productively and focus on what interests them most – and where they can be most effective. For as little as to an hour, you can outsource a variety of activities to a virtual assistant. As a result, you and your team are freed up to concentrate on tasks that add more value to your business. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Identify the tasks you can readily outsource Find the right outsourced staff for your business Create systems that support your virtual assistants to do their best work Maintain a consistent standard of quality across your local and offshore operations Leverage the capability of your business by tapping into a wider range of virtual services   Outsourcing is an extremely cost effective way to help your team become significantly more productive and efficient each and every day. Draw on the skills and talents of virtual staff, and offload a raft of tasks that need not be done by you or your team.   The internet has made it super easy for you to reach a very wide audience. By publishing content on your area of expertise – through articles, videos, podcasts, case studies, blogs and more – it becomes simpler for your target audience to find you. This is because having more content lets you ‘claim more real estate’ in search engine results. A growing number of tools make it possible to repurpose your valuable content in multiple ways, enabling you to promote it through a variety of platforms. For example, a video you create can have the audio extracted to create a podcast. You can then have the audio transcribed into a blog post. This triples the avenues through which a prospective client can find you on the web. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Use ‘front end offers’ that attract new leads and demonstrate your expertise Make videos and podcasts that are professional, compelling and effective Use infographics to simplify and communicate your ideas Ramp up your rankings on Google by tagging your content with targeted keywords Publish a no-fuss, content-rich magazine that appeals to your target audience   By appearing in multiple channels, your visibility as a subject matter expert is significantly boosted. This reinforces your credentials and authority as an expert, making you the standout choice when a prospective client comes looking.   With a never-ending list of social media channels available, it can be confusing for businesses to decide whether it’s worth pursuing at all. And if it is the right path, which is the best type to follow? Some businesses leap into social media without really figuring out why, and end up wasting lots of time and money for little result. But when it’s done well, social media has the capacity to make an extraordinary impact on your business, in a truly cost effective way. Right now, over 75% of your customers use social media. So if this is where they want to spend their time, you need clever ways to connect with them. By using social media the right way, you can hyper-target your advertisements and promote your business to the people you would otherwise have to spend hundreds of dollars to reach, often for less than per lead. You’ll gain an overview of each social media strategy, along with easy ways to manage content and stay relevant and interesting to your audience.   You’ll gain an overview of each social media strategy, along with easy ways to manage content and stay relevant and interesting to your audience.   How often do you keep in contact with your customers once they’ve bought from you? Or what about your list of prospective customers who are yet to buy? If you have a database of customers or prospects, it’s crucial for your business to stay on their radar. This helps ensure you’re top of mind when the time comes for them to buy. It also means you can offer them new products or services, and potentially increase your revenue stream. But it’s not about touching base one-on-one forever. Your business will never grow that way. Learn simple and automated ways your business can retain your customers and prospects, and keep them buying from you over and over. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Create content that’s compelling, useful and relevant to encourage people to opt-in to your mailing list Survey your list to identify what your audience is looking for Build automated campaigns that require minimal effort on your part Identify the headlines and landing pages that deliver the strongest conversion rates Generate a passive, ongoing income stream by offering products and services that match your target audience’s interests   Learn how to leverage your marketing so your current and potential customers look forward to hearing from you. It only takes a few hours a week and you can plan and set up everything months in advance.   Did you know that YouTube is the second most popular search engine in the world? Or that websites with videos have higher conversion rates than ones that don’t? If a picture tells 100 words, a video can communicate thousands in a very short space of time. You can use video for a wide range of purposes – to demonstrate the benefits of your products or services, to make an announcement, to present ‘how to’ information or even to capture video testimonials. While once upon a time it was tricky to make videos in-house that looked and sounded good, that’s no longer the case. With quality video tools, accessories and online resources available at a reasonable cost, it’s become quite simple to produce polished videos for your website. At New Rules of Business, you’ll learn how to: Choose the basics you need to get underway with video production Stage your videos so they’re professional and engaging Use accessories such as prompters that let you read your script while looking directly at the camera Ensure your sound is clear through the right choice of microphone Upload your videos to YouTube and tag them correctly to make it easier for your target audience to find them   More and more people choose to watch a video rather than read loads of web copy. Learn how easy it can be to produce good quality videos inexpensively in-house, through the valuable information you’ll gain at New Rules of Business.   Here's what our clients have achieved after attending New Rules of Business and applying our strategies into their business… “The role of the Business Owner is not to be the one that does everything” We had the right foundations from day 1…it's amazing how quickly it grows” “It's fast tracked us, just outsource everything you're not great at” “I sold more off my facebook page than offmy website”       Get ready to embrace your future As an owner of a business, you know that it affects every aspect of your life – from the lifestyle you live, to how much time you have to spend with your family or to look after your health – even to how well you sleep at night. Don’t stay stuck in the old ways of doing business and risk missing out on the amazing opportunities that are available to you right now. Give your business the wings it needs to thrive. Take advantage of the breakthrough ideas you’ll discover in the FREE 1-Day New Rules of Business event and build the business and life you deserve. You have nothing to lose and your whole life to gain.

Website Redesign

Website Redesign is a must for some businesses.  Over time, all businesses do need to update their online website image.  The online image of a business is a reflection of the goods and services they are offering. A modern and clean image shows that we are up to date and in the know about what we are offering to our clients.  An out of style design may be taken for a sign that a business is not fresh or current, and not the go to business for new info.

Website Redesign

Content Overhaul is Necessary in a Website Redesign

Fresh site content is also crucial here.  If information is not kept recent, website visitors may think you are not the market leader and may prefer to shop elsewhere.   Keep info up to date with good content and with regular blog posts to help make this happen.  If you are busy, you may need to hire a content writer to do this task for you.  The money spent here is a good investment for your business.

You may wonder why a website redesign is a must-do even if your business is doing well, for instance.  The answer is simple.  When a company site image is enhanced, value is created. As a result, you can target a new set of clients with this image.  Second, you can come up to par with a competitor who may be more ahead of the game than you are.  Finally, you can think about raising your prices as a result of this new branding.

For the above reasons, I think a site makeover is money well spent.  The value it brings is so crucial to keeping your site active and engaging so that clients will want to return over and over again.  A good investment that over time will definitely pay for itself.

Toronto Design Trade Show this November 2016

Toronto design tradeshow is coming up at the end of the year. Every year I make it a point of going to about three to five industry related trade shows; anything from web design to search engine optimization to graphic trends. As an industry professional, I think this is crucial in keeping up to date with client needs as well as making useful contacts that I can refer my clients to when the work is outside my scope of practice or skills. This is why I am blogging about a show that I think many graphic designers and web marketing professionals may be particularly interested in. Read More >

Event on 2015-11-20 18:30:00
Pour plus de détails sur l'événement, visitez-nous sur Facebook . Merci beaucoup! Politique de remboursement:  Aucun remboursement ne sera fait à moins de 7 jours de l'événement. Nous nous excusons des inconvénients que ceci peut causer. À propos de l'événement:  Avez-vous déjà entendu parler du Startup Weekend ? Il s’agit d’un événement de 54 heures où des développeurs web, des designers/infographistes, des spécialistes du marketing, des gestionnaires de produit et des amoureux d’entrepreneuriat se rencontrent pour partager des idées, former des équipes, créer des produits et lancer des entreprises !   L’événement débute le vendredi soir, où les participants font des pitchs d’idées pour convaincre les autres de former une équipe visant à développer leur projet. Le samedi et le dimanche, les équipes ainsi formées valident leurs idées, ciblent les clients potentiels et développent un produit minimal viable pour être présenté au panel d’experts du dimanche soir. Tout au long du week-end, des coachs, des experts en financement ou en technologies et des entrepreneurs viennent rencontrer et discuter avec les équipes, en plus d’avoir des discours d’experts du domaine ! La compétition se termine par l’annonce des gagnants de la fin de semaine et la remise des prix.   Le concept de Startup Weekend a démarré en juillet 2007 dans l’État du Colorado (USA) et vise essentiellement à regrouper entre 60 et 120 participants afin qu’ils démarrent une entreprise pendant le weekend. L’organisation sans but lucratif est maintenant basée à Seattle (USA) et reçoit l’appui financier de plusieurs partenaires afin de multiplier de tels événements à travers le monde. Jusqu’à maintenant, plus de 1 500 Startup Weekend ont eu lieu dans plus de 660 villes de plus de 120 pays, regroupant plus de 123 000 entrepreneurs qui ont créé plus de 8 300 entreprises ! Tout comme la plupart des autres Startup Weekend, l’événement de Shawinigan a pour objectif de promouvoir l’entrepreneuriat au niveau régional, de transmettre des connaissances concrètes en démarrage et de faire émerger de nouveaux projets entrepreneuriaux pour la région. Plusieurs bénéfices sont attendus : apprentissage du processus de création d’entreprise des citoyens, en particulier chez les jeunes, développement de relations entre les partenaires qui sont plus durables que dans le réseautage traditionnel, rencontres d’associés potentiels, validation d’idées et expérimentation dans un environnement sans risque et mise en action d’idées innovantes qui, autrement, ne resteraient que des idées… Entente légale de participation:  C'est notre travail de vous fournir une chance incroyable d'apprendre tout en faisant des activités de réseautage. Notre intention est que vous rencontriez des gens incroyables avec qui vous pourriez éventuellement fonder une entreprise, bâtir des relations avec des coaches et apprendre de vos pairs. L'événement a pour objectif d'être un forum collaboratif pour partager, apprendre, bâtir et avoir du plaisir! À ce titre, en vous inscrivant comme participant, vous acceptez que toutes idées que vous partagez ou dont vous avez accès sont des contributions à l'expérience globale des participants et de la communauté. Si à titre de participant, vous avez peur que quelqu'un vole votre idée, veuillez reconsidérer votre participation à notre événement ou garder secret certaines portions spécifiques de votre idée.   En tant que membre de la communauté de startup, vous acceptez d'être à l'écoute des autres et de leurs idées. Vous acceptez également d'agir de façon professionnelle, traiter tout le monde avec respect, et traiter les facilités de l'événement avec respect. Vous acceptez que vous soyez responsable pour tout accident ou dommage que vous pourriez causer. Finalement, vous acceptez de ne pas tenir responsable, votre équipe de bénévole local, ou tout autre supporteurs de l'événement pour toutes pertes, dommages, blessures ou autre événement imprévu. En participant à l'événement, vous permettez à Startup Weekend de prendre des photos ou vidéos de l'événement. Vous pouvez trouver les termes exacts sur la Page FAQ mais pour faire un résumé, nous voulons partager votre succès avec le monde entier.
