Did you know that every minute, 72 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube?
Here at WildWeb, we’ve started encouraging our clients to create promotional videos about their businesses. These videos should be created in such a way that they get noticed and don’t disappear into the mass of other videos out there. PrintWild was the first to give it a try, and we’re really proud of the outcome. This video was produced by Rooinooi:
Here are a few tips as to why video is important for your business:
It’s an easy way to communicate your message to your customers.
You can communicate your personality and your brand to a large audience. In this way you are able to connect with possible customers because of the emotional attachment that is formed with viewers. [As you can see in PrintWild’s clip, we become aware of who is behind the business, how things work behind the scenes and how they aim to go beyond the call of duty for their clients.]
Video achieves professional credibility.
A well-made video grabs audience attention. [A promotional web video should be between 3 and 4 minutes long and should contain a variety of shots, angles and perspectives – like in PrintWild’s video.]
Already have a video on YouTube? Here is a great video that explains the 5 ways that your old YouTube videos can triple their visibility:
We know you love your mom (and mother of your children). And, we know that a photo is truly worth more than a thousand words. And therefore, we at WildWeb think that offering our Mums an awesome wall mountable family photo would make the ideal Mothers Day surprise. Our sister company, PrintWild also thinks so and would like to convince you to look no further than printwild.co.za to offer your Mum the perfect Mothers Day gift.
If you have a special family photo in mind, you can place your order at printwild.co.za, by upload it to the website, and the rest will be taken care of for you. With ordering process being taken care of online and delivery being free to all major SA centers (for all orders over R300) you will be cutting out most (almost all) of the Mothers Day admin. After placing an order, all that you would need to consider are the flowers and wrapping paper, before waiting for the perfect moment to presenting your Mum (or, mother of your children) an unforgettable surprise.
During the ordering process, you can customize how you want the gift to be presented, by choosing the type of print you want (canvas, box frame, acrylic etc). Although canvas seems to be in vogue at the moment, you welcome to also go with a more traditional approach and frame your gift. Print Wild’s Classic Photo Frame’s bold black and white character ensures that it borders your image perfectly and highlights the picture effectively. These framed pictures work in all setting, be it bedroom, lounge, corridor at home or office. If you plan on placing an order soon, and go with a Classic PRintWild frame you will be taking advantage of their current frame specials. Simply select one of their discounted ‘Classic Photo Frames’ in the order to capitalize. The Frame special lasts until the 6th of May, which would be perfect time for your order to arrive at your door, in time for the special occasion. You can view some of the framing options – click here.
Finally, you could win a Mothers Day gift voucher that could go against any order at PrintWild by entering PrintWild’s Mothers’ Day Photo Competition on Facebook – click here.
A few weeks ago we published a blog about WildWeb growing as a team, and we mentioned that we had ambitions to expand further. We thought that once we filled the gap that we would publish another blog about our new members, but never thought that that day would be only two weeks on. So here we are, again, stoked to announce the arrival of our latest two WildWeb staffers on aboard.
We would like to formally welcome both Caitlin and Flash to the WildWeb family and wish them the greatest success aboard.
Caitlin White - Web Maintenance & Graphic Design A graphic designer coming from a 7-year stint in the wedding industry, Caitlin is used to giving designs the finer touch. She is helping David punch those lions in web development and maintenance. She’s a dreamer, an aspiring photographer, techie and a nomad at heart with a dream to see the world – preferably out of a backpack. Her guitar is her journal and gaming is a favorite hobby. She is currently learning to do the Melbourne Shuffle.
Flash – Flash Developer Once upon a time there lived an artist named Flash. He had magical creative powers journeying towards a creative utopia. He has a diploma in multimedia and design from the Center for Fine Art, Animation and Design but above all a passion for art, animation and anything creative. Making a career out of web design has been his focus for the last few years and of April 16th 2013, he appears to have started an exciting new adventure at WildWeb. He is an honest and friendly guy that enjoys the beauty of nature. He has a keen interest in classic and contemporary architecture and wants to someday contribute all his magical powers to a CGI/Animated motion picture to bring about a happy ever after.
Nanzhila Plains Safari Camp, in Zambia, has gone live with their new website and we are proud web devs who plied our hands in getting their new digital property into the cyber arena. Nanzhila, as it is affectionately called, is situated near the Kafue national Park, encompassed by miles of natural beauty and is a must visit for intrepid travelers wishing to experience life off the beaten track.
One major think that you might notice when visiting the site is that the design relies heavily on a wide portfolio of amazing imagery. We feel that this reflects their exclusive and unique allure. As they say; a picture tells a thousand words and the photos on offer, throughout the website, entice the visitor with aplomb. This is most strongly simulated in the gallery section of the website where you are presented with image after image of the wonderful bushscapes and wildlife on offer at Nanzhila.
Apart from the great imagery, the website goes straight to the point. Without being carried away with design trinkets and gizmos, the emphasis is on a practical design and layout. Ultimately, doing straight up simple job of representing the Nanzhila brand and spirit with simple convenience and a eye pleasing elegant style.
WildWeb has been at the forefront of professional web development for over a decade now. And, from the beginning we have beat our chests in pride over the quality of our kick ass team and accomplishments. Over the years we have knocked back a plethora of successfully digital projects and bagged an impressive portfolio of clients. We think it’s all got to do with the prefect mix of characters, skills and creativity we have amongst us.
To keep up with the growing demand of projects coming in, we recently added two new members to the team, in 2013. But we are not done. We are still looking to hire a Graphic Designer and Web Developer. Interested, and have the skills? Click here for more info…
In the meantime, let us introduce you to the two new peeps who have joined WildWeb, in the past few months, and at the same time say very big, warm, welcome to Cherese and Megan.
Cherese Duffield – Project Manager
Cherese is no stranger to the wild outdoors and is a recent addition to the WildWeb Team. An 8 year career in the Marketing and Events industry as an account executive and client service manager has given her a keen understanding of the dynamics between client, staff and the final product. She likes to join in on David’s random discussions about existentialist philosophy; but far prefers cracking whips and keeping the WildWeb Team in-line, in-focus and inspired.
Megan Wridgway – Assistant Digital Marketing Strategist
Megan is a Shelly Beach raised sun worshipper at heart who went on to complete her Honours degree in Media & Cultural Studies at UKZN in Pietermaritzburg at the end of 2012. Durban’s buzz lured her in though and she began work at WildWeb in February 2013. Along with Kelly, Megan makes up the other half of the digital marketing strategy team, by managing some of the day-to-day to-do of the client marketing campaigns. She has a taste for Social Media and is eager to improve our clients’ online images. She also has a taste for wine and socialising and loves lying in the sun, gaining freckles. She’s happiest when surrounded by cats.
