Top Tips for Using Video on your Business Website

Creative Technologies

You know that moment in a movie when a look or a gesture from one of the characters is enough to finally clarify exactly what’s been happening for the last two hours?

We can be brought to tears or laughter from an image on a birthday card and understand complex situations and concepts within a few mere seconds of a visual demonstration. Continue reading

Social Media

Stop for a moment to consider this – a Facebook ‘Like’ for a business or brand is now estimated to be worth approximately £110 in cold, hard cash – or to be ‘exact’ $174.17USD.

But without the bottomless pockets of mega brands who can afford to continually experiment with the latest web design technologies making their sites able to sing and dance as they wish, are there ways of having a similarly dramatic effect simply by applying some basic psychological principles?
