Sometimes, you just want things to be simple. Ever wanted to be able to edit your own website without dealing with the backend, or floundering through lines of code? Farin Innovations’ proprietary CMS – called, surprise! FICMS – lets you do just that.
We’ve designed it to provide an even easier alternative to WordPress. FICMS allows you to manipulate, edit and update content without entering the backend of the website. Just point and click on any image, text or hyperlink and you’ll be able to edit it right on the spot.
In this economy, running any type of business is tough – but restaurants often have it extra hard. Large amounts of overhead plus small amounts of cash flow can be a recipe for disaster – plus, there’s often insane competition between eateries struggling to make ends meet.
These days, it’s not just about food any more: the struggle for restaurant success has shifted to cyberspace. In the restaurant business, a dynamic web presence can mean the difference between success and bankruptcy. Here are three ways you can “beef up” your online presence to create a fresh, hot wave of success for your restaurant business.
Since Halloween is right around the corner, here’s a scary question.
Who’s going to design your website?
That question might not sound so spooky, initially. After all, you already have a great business, right? All you have to do is Google “web design” for your area and you’ll end up with pages of top web contractors, all itching for the chance to design (or re-design) your company site. Now, you just pick the best-looking option and go with the flow. Couldn’t be simpler, right?
With the rise of search engine popularity, and its ultimate incorporation into people’s daily lives, getting visible on the first page of Google has become one of the most important aspects of online marketing. Competition however is fierce. As evidenced by the recent Google Algorithm Updates; Panda and Penguin, changes in this industry happen quickly and often without warning.
While not every Internet marketing strategy is implemented in every industry at the same levels of intensity, there are a few universal truths for anyone who wades into the floodwaters of search engine optimization. So while this article is meant in good fun, these are the most basic and essential rules that every SEO should live by.
On Thursday, September 27th, Google confirmed its 20th Panda update. This update is fairly major for two reasons:
About 2 weeks ago, Google introduced a new, much needed tool, particularly since the release of Google Penguin earlier this year. Penguin targeted “over optimization,” which involves many things. However, a central target of the Penguin was the penalizing of sites that have many spammy inbound links. The problem for many webmasters is that they have had no absolute or direct control as to the quality of their inbound links. So, it is possible to have negative influences to your Google rankings simply due to the presence of link spam that could not be directly and effectively dealt with.
As I had hoped and predicted, Google has now made available the Disavow Link Tool, which effectively allows webmasters and SEOs to exercise full responsibility to eliminate bad links that could be negatively affecting both site and business performance. This is a welcome addition.
Taking your website from a pile of unwieldy, unrelated “tools” to a functional, integrated package may seem like a daunting task – but don’t worry, it’s possible to streamline your site, creating a web presence that “unfolds” with intuitive grace.
The makers of the Swiss Army Knife have been doing it since 1891. You can, too.
While many of our clients and prospects begin their web design journey by hiring a freelancer rather than a development firm, they normally regret making such a decision. They do this because they believe they could save money by merely hiring a freelancer and get a similar product to that of a professional web development firm.
Unfortunately, however, this is almost never the case. Of course, it is always possible that hired freelancer could produce a wonderful product, but this is extremely unlikely.
