Penang Web Design - Latest News Update



 



Recently there have been so many enquiries on how a company can maintain their own website without having to rely on part timers or web designers. Even though this is not a new issue to highlight, however many companies are still risking their business websites by not having their websites 'insured'.

'Insured' here simply means own a copy of the critical files for future alteration or re-installation in case of emergencies.

  • Artwork original source files (photoshop, flash..) for future artwork modification just in case the web designer is no more in business. This are standard files whereby any designer knows well.
  • Website program or database files (html, javascripts, php, css, mysql..) to enable other programmer to make slight amendment for you when the original programmer changed his number.
  • Website Emergency Recovery File - to enable the original website to be reinstalled in "minutes" when you decide to switch web hosting company, or after your website being damaged seriously by unknown hacker..
These are the critical files your part time designer or freelancer never disclose to you. Remember, you need to ask for these files upon completion of your website. For us, it has long been our standard practice to hand it over to you in CD at the end of web design process. Don't ever lose your website again !

Year 2008 is the year where more businesses are going online because...

  • open more opportunities internationally - through search engines listing.
  • easy for products browsing and updating - eliminating the work of faxing catalogue.
  • easy for existing clients to place order.
  • making use the website to represent the company virtually.
  • follow the trend - other companies already have websites, why don't ours ?
Designing a website is easy, it can be done by a part timers or any graphic designers. However people forgets what website is all about ! It is not just a piece of design to impress others, or a book of company profile and content text to let others understand your company, or a piece of flash animation for showing off the designer's skill, but it is your vital tools to pull more opportunities in and to convert those opportunities into real businesses.

In order to achieve that, your website must meet these 3 basic criteria :

  • be highly visible on the largest search engines like Google & Yahoo for popular "keywords" that people will use to look for the specific products or services online. We feel that this is the DRIVING FORCE and the most important of all for a business website rather than the website design itself. Please weigh by yourself, which is more important -- "a very impressive website but having very low visibility in search engine" or "be found on the first page of Google for certain popular keywords but having just a moderate level of web design" ?
  • make the prospects feel comfortable and trusting your content and services. This is an important point in order to convert your prospects (who have landed on your website through the search engines) into real customers. At this point, impress the prospect with design is insufficient, let the prospect believe that you are very trustful is the critical point to proceed with business relationship.
  • fast & easy to browse for information. We feel that finding information shouldn't take more than 2 clicks. The best is one can find the information from the first page itself. This is what "1-Click-Access" is all about. The prospect can easily obtain any information (contact details, products info, services, your location or anything) with maximum 2 clicks away. Once the prospects are satisfy, it is likely that they will contact you for further details.
This is actually a logical cycle of business deal conducted through the web. First, the prospect come to know your product / service from the keyword search on search engine. Second, your web is designed so professionally that create the trust in the prospect. Finally, the prospect decided to browse further for more information and details to see if you can provide what he want. Once satisfy, the prospect will contact you for further deal. The rest are minor factors that support these 3 criteria.

Unfortunately most people think the other way round -- "My website must be so creative and impressive, then only will it attract more people to come, see and read." What is the driving force here ? The design ? How do a prospect know the existence of your website in the first hand ? Think carefully... that's why many companies do not enjoy the benefits from their online business ! They have either reversed the logic or they engaged "graphic designer" to do the job.

A Graphic Designer can design a very impressive piece of artwork, this is definitely true. A Web Designer can produce a piece of beautiful artwork plus information blended into the HTML codes for web publishing, this is also 100% right. A Professional Web Designer can provide you what a web designer can produce plus 3 basic values to turn your website into a vital tools for real business.

Paying RM500 (cheap) for a so-called "for show" website created by an ordinary graphic designer / part timer is worth your investment ? or paying RM2k to 4k for a value added website created by professional is worth your money ?

Do you know why we Malaysian are unable to sell products online like those in US ?

  • No online payment support from local banks - what a shame !
  • High commitment fees even though you can finally get the bank support
  • Unreasonable & plenty of rules and regulations to meet before you will be approved
  • Difficulty to withdraw money even though you manage to accept credit card online
  • High monthly fees to pay if you signup those supported payment providers
  • Need to accumulate the received money to a certain limit before it can be transferred to your bank
  • Lengthy signup approval time
Tell you what, no more such headache ! We have made Paypal the standard payment processor in our shopping cart now ! Why ? because of the following good news :

  • No sign up fee
  • No monthly fee
  • Instant approval
  • Accept major cards : Mastercard, Visa, Discover & AMEX.
  • Accept Paypal transfer from other Paypal users
  • Don't have to install expensive SSL (Secured Sockets Layer) on your server
  • Most Importantly : able to withdraw money from local bank ATM with local bank card !
In case you are still thinking that Malaysian is unable to withdraw money from Paypal, then you are seriously WRONG ! You can receive money at any time into our local banks (selected only) and use ATM card as normal to withdraw. The bank does not charge ATM withdrawal fee.

For small and new start up business with low budget in mind, we strongly recommend that you use PAYPAL to accept online credit card payment because it's free, instant signup and approval. More important - you as Malaysian can now receive money from Paypal to your local bank (selected banks only). You do not have to open US bank account or Singapore bank account or using expensive US debit card to withdraw money any more ! You can transfer the money received in Paypal to your local account at any time and withdraw using ATM machine as normal. Is that what you are looking for ?

The only set back is your client need to pay in USD currency. However this is not a big deal because we can set a currency conversion rate you fixed into the system and your price in RM will be automatically converted into USD if your client opts to pay via credit card. We do hope that in the near future Paypal will support RM as well.

So Malaysians, what are you waiting for ? Sell your online now ! Open up a new opportunity to market your products ! Don't limit your market, go borderless - go nationwide or even globally . Who knows how far your products can go... Come to the worst, it's low cost, right ? With our complete online ecommerce shopping cart system, *RM1,xxx (while offer last) is all you have to spend for your initial investment  which already includes the 1st year web server hosting fee plus free domain name and the advanced ecommerce software & installation equipped with Paypal integration to accept credit card online. As for the following years, the cost is even lower -- you pay only the web hosting fee plus small basic database maintenance fee .

How to withdraw money from Paypal to local bank ? Ooppss... Don't ask yet. We will show you the details on how you can withdraw money from Paypal to Malaysia Bank account once you place your ecommerce shopping cart order with us.
