WOT™ is a Scam ? Many Complaints.

After doing some research and becoming somewhat of a victim of WOT's web reputation bull, I have discovered I am not alone.  MANY COMPLAINTS have been posted about their tactics. They give websites a bad reputation only to get you to buy their software to gain a good reputation.

More to Come.

Affordable Websites and Web Designs

you will not find better prices for quality web designs & services.

Affordable doesn't always mean 'cheap" or lesser quality. In our case it means beating out the competition by offering superior service for custom made websites.  No two companies are ever 100% exactly the same, even if they offer the same thing, they all have their own individual identity.  Some companies do require more complex designs, while other just need a simple online presence. Zapro media can provide all of today's latest web solutions including HtMl5 and responsive mobile websites. Check out some of the samples below.

This is a good example of a responsive website. Responsive web design is a new approach to building websites. It’s about carefully crafting a website to be usable and aesthetically pleasing across a wide range of devices such as Smart-Phones and Tablets. Responsive websites use a fluid layout that adapts and responds to your user. Meaning that you are able to maintain one website that will serve all of your customers, no matter where or what they are viewing it on.

Does Your website work on Android ?

Have you been seeing this on your Android Tablet or Phone?


mobile device error notice for Android.
Many folks have been reporting that their websites no longer work on Android phones - guess what ? - THEY ARE RIGHT !  Now you are asking WHY ?  Well then answer from Google is a simple one. Chrome for Android will not be supporting Flash. As you may have seen in November, 2011, Adobe announced it has stopped investing in Flash for mobile browsing. Google has long been committed to making the web platform more powerful through open web technologies like HTML5 and is working with Adobe and other partners to further advance the web standard.

The next question is "what should I do if my website is not working on an Android mobile device" ?
If your website has any interaction buttons ,e.g. click here,  unfortunately there is no fix right now. Google has created an extension SWIFFY for programs like Adobe Flash and Swish, but the conversion is limited to just animation type banners.

If your website is a combination of HTML , FLV or SWF then HTML5 is the way to go. I have found videos to be the easiest to convert to an HTML5 format. I would suggest contacting your webmaster or web designer for a new website update.

Why Build a Website in 2013 ?

Building Your Brand is Key 

A website helps to build your business's brand or your products awareness. The average consumer prefers to do business with entities that they are familiar with. This is why businesses spend millions of dollars creating familiar brands that the consumer will trust. With the use of videos and graphics a website can help to build that familiarity in the minds of your customer.  Webpage forms are a great way to gather information about what your customers want or need. If your website does not have the same look and feel as your Facebook business page,I think that is not good branding. Keeping your brand familiar for your customers is key.

Relevant Content Equals Better Ranking ? 

Having relevant content on your website is not only good for your customers, but it will help in your overall search engine rankings.I see so many people build a website and then just forget all about it.-even phone books get updated. Keeping your website's content fresh will let your customers know someone at your company cares about customer service. Relevant content can also have a different meaning depending on who you may talk to. SEO experts think relevant content is carefully selected and researched keywords designed to rank a website high on search engine results pages, and they are right. E-Marketers claim relevant content is content that will add value to a product or service and will increase the bottom line of sales and they are right too. I believe relevant content is what the web user finds interesting, useful and what they want. If I am selling bananas the majority of my content best not be about apples.
