Your website is the online face of your brand and whether you're updating, maintaining or re-launching your site, your main focus should be to provide a secure and easy user experience. Here are 5 top tips on how to increase revenue through your website.
Every website and app launch is stressful. So we have complied a checklist to ensure your website is launch ready.

Mobiles rule the world with 3.5 billion active smart phones worldwide. Take that statistic in, 3.5 billion. That’s the same number as just under half of the global population and the market has only been around for 20 or so years. Breaking this number down, 1.3 billion or 25% of the market is run by the Apple operating system with the remaining 75% being android. In fact, smartphones and tablets have dominated the technology market with a sales of 68 million during 2006 to a massive 1, 729 million per year in 2016.
Online publicity dominates. From small boutique businesses to conglomerates, without an online presence your brand basically doesn’t exist. Online interactions provide more opportunities to build connections with customers and communicate on many different levels.
Used accordingly, the online world can propel your sales and user retention. However, if you fail to monitor and engage with your customers, things can get messy and unfortunately, your customers are starting to talk back.
