Recently Webtiger worked with Vendo to create their new custom designed website. The team at Vendgo were a pleasure to work with and offer a great product for businesses. Here is a little about them:

Vendgo Melbourne is a small yet successful vending company that operates throughout Melbourne and services most metropolitan areas. Vendgo Melbourne is made up of a small team of industry professionals with over 20 years of customer service experience. Since you are not dealing with a big corporate structure, things get done quickly as we have our own in house transport, maintenance & restocking vehicles.

Vendgo Melbourne has rapidly earned its reputation as a leader in the vending industry, exceeding its customers’ expectations.

This is a standard site. If you are interested in having webtiger create a standard site for you, please contact us. The designs are unique, we don’t use a template that will be the same as everyone else. Webtiger will sit with you and talk about and create a design that is unique for your brand and requirements.

Greysafe  is a .org website and was recently launched, it continues to grow with its website campaigns, but more importantly the impact it’s having on Australia. “We have seen the impact of abuse on older Australians and felt helpless when trying to help the vulnerable escape this abuse and neglect from those that are supposedly caring for them. While the system recognises the abuse, exploitation and neglect of older Australians are issues needing to be addressed, meaningful change has been too slow or ineffective.

It is up to us, families of the abused and neglected, our friends, neighbours and the broader Australian community to lead the change.

Greysafe has made it our mission to highlight the issues and importantly, put forward ideas and initiatives to help protect and empower older Australians.”

A new site launched.

It was a pleasure to work with the Emperior Floor team. This is the second project we have worked on with this team. We look forward to working together on other projects in the future.

Webtiger recently worked with the talented Hampel Designs to create and launch this stunning website for Tibco Designs. Tibco Designs create cabinets for kitchens, bathrooms and robes made to measure. Their kitchen designs are available in a variety of finishes and colours. The materials used are top quality, including granite, laminates and marble. Their designs are stylish and practical. Tibco can assist you in assessing the space and offering you the best solution to suit your needs, theme and budget.

If only we all had houses like these. As I sit here with house envy, I also know that Tibco competitors now have website envy because the website for Tibco Designs is absolutely stunning, functional and informative. It’s so pretty, sleek, minimal and offers the viewers stunning visuals showcasing the brilliant Tibco craftmanship.

The site was launched a few months ago. It’s always good to do a ‘soft launch’ of your website before going hard on your launch campaign, marketing campaign.  Since the Tibco Designs website has been launched there have been no major issues with the website.

Turning your website on and announcing it to a small controlled audience ensures that if there are any bugs, typos, feedback or errors, they can be addressed quickly and without your larger audience being involved. This can save face. Of course, it’s uncommon for there to be any errors as we do testing before the site is turned on, this is just used as a safeguard.

New websites are fun and powerful. We wish Tibco much success well into the future and hope that the website is everything you need it to be.

Congratulations Tibco Designs on the Launch of your stunning new website. It was a pleasure working with you.

Please contact Webtiger if you need a ‘STANDARD WEBSITE’ such as the tibco designs site.

Webtiger working along with HampleDesigns, The Bridge Coaching and the lovely migration team at MCA Migration Consultants Australia have launched a new migration website. Currently it’s in soft launch mode & over the next few weeks we’ll keep an eye out for any bugs, reports of bugs. The site was tested thoroughly & I don’t expect we’ll be contacted about bugs, however bugs are bugs, an unknown and usually an unwanted surprise.

Bugs + Warrenties

The Webtiger warranty covers fixing bugs for 30 days after site launch at no extra charge.

Graphic Design

Working with the talented Amanda from HampleDesigns  was and is always a pleasure. The site has changed a little since we were provided the initial design by Amanda. The process to create and build your custom designed website is agile, allowing changes and reassessment to happen throughout the project life cycle. Of course, some clients stick to the mock up design from the get go to the final product too.  We touch base along the way to make sure the client is happy with the design.

Project Management

This Migration project was managed by the very talented Emmy from The Bridge Coaching. She is organised, focused and keeps the project and team members in the know and working towards the goal post. Webtiger loved working with her and hope to do so on many more projects.

The Migration Site Launch

The site that launched this week can be found here: MCA Migration.

It’s fresh, it’s new, it’s informative. The website is responsive of course too.

This website is a stunner, it has powerful complex online forms and easy to read migration information.

In fact the contact form was used by a new client just hours after the site launch.

Delay in the project

The migration website has come at the right time, right when Australia changed the immigration laws, this announcement from the Australian government did delay our project a touch. Projects get delayed for all sorts of reasons, this was just one of them.

Launch. It’s a good day!

Soft launch mode.

Webtiger is currently in ‘Soft Launch’ mode. I’ve deleted the old site, redirected all old site links, mostly finished the new Webtiger website and launched it, however, I’ve launched it without telling anyone.

In a few weeks, after I’ve tested everything and gained some feedback from various site visitors, I’ll do the fancy larger launch party.

Safer.

It’s ‘safer’ this way. If there are any typos or bugs, they’ll be found by a smaller audience and can be fixed before the larger community see the site, which could be embarrassing.

I have found it really difficult to find time to work on my own projects such as my own website. I’m usually busy creating for my lovely clients. Recently launched websites include the powerful www.greysafe.com.au .  This website was launched last week and a few getting much closer to their launch date over the next few weeks.

Message.

The message of this post is that launching your website is a big deal. So having a soft launch can be very beneficial. This ensures that when you do go live to a large audience there are no bugs, no typos and no embarrassing situations. Webtiger will strongly encourage you to soft launch your site.  Please allow time for this in your timeline.

How long?

How long is a soft launch? Well, it can depend on the size of your website. If your site is huge and sells products, perhaps allow for a longer amount of time than a site that is only a few pages and doesn’t sell anything. I’m going to give my site a few weeks before I do the big ‘Go Live’ party. But some sites have waited a day or two with family and friends giving the site a good go over those few days.

Webtiger Stock Photography

It’s been decided that Webtiger should be producing and selling stock photography. Therefore, that’s what’s been happening over the past few months. For starters I’ll focus on the more ‘feminine’ style of stock photography.

Feminine Styled Stock Photography

The photos will be flowery and feminine. With the target to be for feminine blogs and websites. I’ll slowly transition this website over to all Webtiger images, but for now there is a mixture of feminine stock images from various sources.

I’ve opened an etsy store too. So please, go check it out. The images can be found on this site and etsy.

Custom Images

As I’m working on projects I’ll make the decision about creating custom images. I’ve worked with builders & cabinet makers photographing the dream homes they create. for their new sites. Such as a few for this one Tibco Designs.  It’s no trouble to take the camera around for clients who have been stuck for images that are suitable.

 

This post will focus on WordPress. Another time I’ll write about WooCommerce, Magento and Joomla. I just wanted to quickly give some tips on how to do some basic security house keeping.

I remember sitting in the lecture for computer security at the University of Tasmania, the lecturer often told stories of hacked websites, databases and one particular story named ‘The Cuckoo’s Egg’. This books is fabulous. I read it in a night, I couldn’t put it down. Our lecturer was discussing the story and mentioned one of the most basic website security concepts of all. I’m going to share it with you now too. Get ready, it’s ground breaking. haha.

Never keep the user name as ‘Admin’, or ‘Administrator’ or ‘User’. What ever username your device comes with by default, change it.

And, change the password.

Hackers love it when you leave the user name as ‘admin’ and password as ‘password’! Don’t do it!

Another tool Webtiger will ensure is switched on, comes with WordPress by default, this is ‘Limit Logins’. There are a few other third party plugins you can install for free and buy.

One of the best ways to see if a plugin is any good is to look at how many downloads/uses it has. Wordfence has over a million installations. iThemes is also highly rated.

Backup

Make sure your website is backed up frequently. If you do get hacked, we can roll back to a version without the hack and implement security measures to avoid it happening again.
