USING EFFICIENCY TO LOOK AFTER OUR WORLD


Marketing & Business
piece written on the 5th December 2016 by  
We live in a world where efficiency is becoming more and more important, not only from a time-saving and optimisation point of view but more importantly from a resources perspective to protect our world. Everyone in South Africa should be aware of the water restrictions currently in effect and everyone has experienced load-shedding. The supply of water and electricity is under pressure and it's time for citizens to ...

Marketing & Business
piece written on the 1st July 2016 by  
I'm a strong believer in reflecting on experiences, looking for problems and then correcting them. I believe that this is how we become better people, run better businesses and in general this is how we grow. So I've written blog posts on things I did when I started my business and then 5 years later I w...

BUSINESS BOOKS YOU’LL READ MORE...


Marketing & Business
piece written on the 12th June 2016 by  
I don't read a lot of books, it's just never been something I could get into. Perhaps it's my levels of patience or perhaps it's because I simply just read too much online. I'm a huge fan of reading long articles online though, really well written business, marketing or financial ones, but I know that it will only take me a day to get through them. With that being said, I admire people who read books and whilst I fli...

I think there's no question that the growth of eCommerce in South Africa is growing at an incredible rate. Not only are there eCommerce websites appearing constantly, there is international interest and eCommerce company's are already being bought but key international brands. Throw mCommerce into the equation and we have an industry that is starting to boom. That's very much focusing on the supply side, but with S...

Marketing & Business
piece written on the 6th September 2015 by  
We've recently launched a new online tool at iMod Digital called Alert Alfred. The premise is really simple, you add your websites to Alert Alfred and if you website ever goes offline you receive an email notification so that you can address the problem. On top of that, when it's back up you'll receive another notification telling you as such. It's just a handy tool, which is free, that keeps you posted because when...

I’M HIRING!


Marketing & Business
piece written on the 9th July 2015 by  
It has come to that point again where I need to try and seek out a truly talented digital marketer who has a very keen interest in search engine optimisation. Someone who can be given a task and is able to run with it, return when it is complete and not be afraid to ask team members for assistance. Someone who understands search engine optimisation without having to turn to Google for answers and someone who wants to...

Marketing & Business
piece written on the 1st April 2015 by  
By now most people who run a website or are involved in digital marketing in any capacity would have read about Google's plans to launch an algorithm update towards the 21st of April this year. There have been a huge number of articles with different opinions about us, but at the end of the day there are also some facts and I want to try and demystify this somewhat. Last month, on the 26th of February, Google made...

Marketing & Business
piece written on the 8th March 2015 by  
When it comes to being responsible for a lot of websites, one of the most important things is ensuring that you're made quickly aware when a website goes offline. This may be so you can turn off an AdWords campaign, to avoid de-indexing matters or to just make sure that your website is online and ready for customers. At iMod Digital we make use of a really g...
