December 2016 Kwikweb Newsletter
We have recently added the following new features to the Kwikweb system:
Please remember that we are more than willing to help you with anything related to your website or emails. If you can’t get hold of your personal web design consultant, just visit www.kwikwap.co.za and find our contact details. There is also a handy Support form you can fill in to get instant assistance. See under More Info on www.kwikwap.co.za.
Here are some lesser known, but handy features in the Kwikweb system:
Text (SMS) Reminders (found under “Communicate With Customers”)
Forms & Surveys
You can easily build enquiry forms to gather data. You can also add that form to every page of your website. There are a myriad of uses for such forms and surveys.
Online Ticket Sales
There is a mini Computicket module inside Kwikweb. So next time your school etc hold an event, use that module to sell tickets and save tonnes of manual work.
SEO Audit Tool (Search Engine Optimisation)
The most important pages of your website is Products & Services and About Us. At those pages you will find an SEO Tool which analyses your SEO effectiveness of each page.
PS: The most important thing about SEO is the amount of WRITING you put on your website (but it must be original and relevant). There are more info under Help-->How can I improve my web presence. If you need a writer then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don’t tell me you still use a Gmail email address e.g. email@example.com ? You will look more professional if you use e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org . To add an email account to your domain go to Settings/Admin and then Email Account Admin.
AND here is a twist … Gmail is a very good email program … and … you can link your professional email address (i.e. on your own domain name) to the Gmail interface.
In other words, you will be using e.g. email@example.com on the Gmail interface.
To do that, go into your Gmail and add a pop account. For detailed instructions visit Emailhelp.co.za and then go to the page called Settings.
Little secret: We also use the Gmail email program as our preferred email program. It is way better than Outlook (sorry Mr Bill Gates).
Please keep in mind, we can help you with Google Adwords (aka Pay Per Click).
Go to Value Added and then Google Adwords (or just email firstname.lastname@example.org) . We charge a flat management fee of R500 per month. Then your Adspend should at least be R1000 pm.
Yes, it becomes expensive but remember it is highly targeted advertising and it works for most people.
PS: a) Beware of companies that charge per click because you don’t know what portion is fees and what portion is actual ads.
b)We have access to a dedicated person at Google who help us to optimise your Adwords campaigns
If you need any training on your website there are a few options available to you.
* Domain Ts & Cs: R50 domain special applies to .co.za domains only and must be purchased via credit/debit card
