Why Is Website Development So Important?

As human beings, we pride ourselves on our adaptation skills and ability to change with the times. There’s no getting around it; our digitally-driven lifestyle has given us little choice but to adapt to technology, and if you haven’t already, it’s time. For your business to generate more business, your voice needs to be heard, your brand needs to be seen and your goals need to be reached. The same way an eye is the window to the soul, a website is the window to a business, giving customers a taste of what you have to offer and enticing them to delve for more.

Unfortunately, if your product can’t be found on the other side of a click, you’ve already lost access to millions of people, and your company effectively doesn’t exist to them.

So what is valuable to showcase on your website, in order to leave a maximum impact? Displaying your company’s information with high-quality images and thought-out presentation will have a large influence on customers, and its important to strive towards making your product as relatable and appealing as possible. With website development you can:

  1. Communicate with your visitors effectively. It’s important to make a website that enables you to get in touch with your customers and prospects, and to be able to produce valuable content for the audience associated with the industry or business you’re in. This will show your clients the extent to which you’re concerned about their satisfaction and how responsive you are to their needs.
  2. Improve your connectivity. Planning to make a responsive website design for your site will help make it accessible to an extensive range of users spanning several devices, such as tablets or smartphones.
  3. Prove your reliability. Your website design should be handled in the best possible way, because a professional presentation speaks volumes as testimony to your company. This helps you earn the trust and confidence of your visitors and serves as a reference point for customers interested in your business, making it easier for you to produce leads.

Without website development, it would be very difficult to leave your mark on a high level. Start adapting, let Cybervation develop your website, and get ready to collect the benefits of your success.

What is Vendor Management?

Vendor Management is the process by which an organization’s third and fourth-party vendor contracts, expectations and business dealings are organized within a single system company, making it easy to find, report on and edit vendor agreements.

Do You Need Vendor Management?

From network management to application support, Cybervation’s IT solutions will keep you protected, prepared and ready to move forward with your business goals.

3 Tips for Vendor Management Success

  1. Share your goals: Although vendors may not need to know your entire business plan, they do need to know your expectations regarding their involvement in helping you achieve your goals. Some of these goals may involve new product launches, brand changes and mergers, relocation, limited forecast information, etc.
  2. Strategize with Key Vendors Regularly: You partnered with this vendor because they support for business operations your company needs. Use that vendor’s knowledge-base to help you become more efficient and competitive.
  3. Build Partnerships for the Long Term: Constantly changing vendors to save a penny here and there could cost you more in the long run!

Time, money and energy used to nurture the relationships you have with your vendors will result in increased customer satisfaction, reduced costs, higher quality of goods/services and better employee engagement. Looking for a vendor management solution? We are an IT managed services provider, quick to remedy any problematic situation and we take ownership over the work we do for our clients.

Top 3 Reasons Why Your Company Should Transition to Private Cloud Computing

One of the biggest IT buzz words of the past few years, ‘cloud computing’ has brought incredible promise to the world of information technology. Pooled computing resources, divided and allocated to different users, have been proved in the development and testing realm of IT to have tremendous benefits.

The private cloud aims to lessen, if not eliminate, any security concerns by dedicating exclusive hardware to each user. It is a “best of both worlds” solution that can bring important benefits like improved uptime and reliability at a lower cost than on a traditional IT infrastructure. In fact, according to Yankee Group’s recent survey on Cloud Computing, private cloud computing is preferred 2:1 over public cloud solutions.

That is why we compiled the top 3 reasons why your company should rethink your IT infrastructure and look into the benefits of private cloud computing.

1. Dedicated hardware means increased security.

If you have the proper physical security, anti-virus software and firewall rules in place, you can rest assured your data is as safe as if it were sitting right next to your desk. You can meet with us and talk to those in charge of providing support for your hardware and even come visit if you like.

2. The transition from physical to virtual servers leads to better flexibility.

The ability to spin up and tear down a server in a matter of minutes is incredibly powerful and useful. Need more disk space? More CPU? With private cloud computing, we can reallocate resources in moments without worrying about finding a physical server that will have the resources your new server needs.

3. Switching to private cloud computing will save you time and money

If your company has more than 2 servers, it could benefit from virtualization. The public cloud revolutionized Information Technology forever; the private cloud brings the benefits to the masses.

Conclusion: Save Money, Save Time, Sleep Easy:

Transition to Private Cloud Computing with Cybervation.

Application Support Provides Key Services

Application support provides key services, and ensures that applications remain in good working order.

 

Today, all complex business processes are supported on computer software and hardware. Therefore, every company must have an application support organization, like Cybervation, to ensure that these business applications run successfully and are error free.

Some people may think that a support company just fixes errors and not much more. This perception is not correct. Here’s a detailed look at our services.

 

Responding to production emergencies

Emergency response is typically the most obvious category of support.

  • Application down. There may be many users who rely on the application that now do not have anything to work on.
  • Substantial logic error. In some respects, errors can be worse than having the application down. When a substantial logic problem occurs, but the application is still up, the outcomes produced may be erroneous, and bad decisions can happen.

 

Trivial software/hardware upgrades and changes

This category covers services involved when your company initiates changes. The changes or upgrades may be small. If the work is nontrivial, then it would be classified as an enhancement.

 

Assisting with business processes

In many organizations there are business processes that take place on a regularly scheduled basis. Most companies close their books on a monthly basis, and may have additional special processing that takes place on a quarter-end and at year-end. Normal and ongoing assistance with these business processes is part of the service provided by our company.

 

Application Support is critical to every company, ensuring that the company business processes function reliably and correctly. Please let us know if you need Application Support for your company!

Email Marketing in 2017

In today’s age of the Experience Business, the brands that will be successful are focused on anticipating customers’ needs with personalized experiences and constantly raising the bar of the consumer experience. And we all know that email marketing remains a channel that delivers.

 

That said, the majority of email marketers struggle with meaningful engagement. If your email is managed by a third party as a standalone channel without inherently rich cross-channel campaign management, it will become increasingly irrelevant.

 

This is very much our focus at Cybervation – with the goal of helping brands best gain the attention of their current customer base, along with the prospects they seek to entice.

 

In 2017, we have been reimagining email marketing in the context of the Experience Business by:

  • Making it easier and faster for our clients to create and have emails sent – If you’re like a large percentage of people out there, you (or your business) doesn’t know how to code emails in HTML/CSS. It’s no wonder that people are struggling to surprise and delight or add personalization if they are mired in the basics of just getting the message out the door. Through customized coding, our email designers can create emails in HTML/CSS and quickly send personalized, contextual emails.
  • Increasingly bringing reporting and learning to the fingertips of our clients with regular updates – Data science for the sake of data science is not our game. We’re infusing our capabilities to design content that’s meaningful and deliver that email at a time that makes the most sense for the customer, then report our finding back to you so we may continually improve your Experience Business.
  • Bringing creative magic to email – The driving force behind any great email-marketing campaign maps back to experience; it’s about providing beautiful, compelling emails that persuade customers to take an action.

Our experience with email marketing dates back nearly 10 years. We’re excited to be working with many new customers in 2017, including those that belong to our BistroUX community.

5 Unique Ideas to Make Your Staffing Work for your Company!

First off what makes you unique. What area of expertise do you staff for? There are a lot of staffing companies out there. Be able to articulate your mission and value proposition.

The first number of steps would be to:

· Search the web for all the companies based out of your area

· Talk to their HR departments and see if they have a contract that you can sign to work on a contingency basis. Also, see what positions that they are hiring for that you may want to try and fill.

· Talk to other recruiters in the area to see if you can work out some type of partnership agreement where you split commissions on helping to find clients. A network like this is very important.

There are websites on for companies that just received series A, B or C funding. Usually, small companies get funding to expand which may mean resources. Focusing on small companies could be an excellent start.

What rates will you charge? The going rate now is 20% of first year salary for placement.

Be aggressive with your searches on the web and selective where you place your hiring adds.

Another Idea would be a simple, “grass-roots” idea that is extremely effective for any business that sells products or services B2B.

Do a “Blitz”. Once per week, go to NEW businesses and ask for an HR person. Most often than not, they are told that HR is busy.

So leave a little bag of candy with a bow on it and your business cards attached.

Another idea is takes a small piggy bank (you can get them at a dollar store for $.99) and attaches his business card and writes a slogan on the side about saving time and money with his staffing service.

This is an extremely creative way to get some new leads and clients. When you do follow up you will be remembered by your creative little gift and that will help you stand out!

1. Target your customers, not based on the keywords they’re looking for, but on what they have indicated they’re interested in. So when they log into their profile, your ad will be right there.

This is much cheaper than adwords, and from what I can tell it is highly effective.

Non-Web would be media. Get some free press.

That’s a massive topic by itself, but here’s what you need to do in a nutshell…

Write a press release that focuses on human interest. (How your handbag saved a dying child or something)

2. Come up with a “Media pitch” that is

· short

· funny

· has zero sales

· focuses on how your info can benefit the readers/viewers/listeners

3. Call newspapers and radio stations and ask for the editor who works in the fashion section or whatever section will correspond to what you sell.

4. When you talk to them, ID yourself, ID where you’re from, tell them why you’re calling (ie. Pitch) and ask if you can send your press release to them.

5. FOLLOW UP!!!! This is the most vital part about the process. Call them back. Remember, they’re busy.

This may sound a bit complex, but I’m telling you it works.

You will not be sorry you went this road. And the best part is… you’ll never have to pay for it!
