Benefits of using Webmail vs Email Client

April 8th, 2014

A brief explanation for Email Client is a program that is used to access and manage (read send, organize emails, etc) a user’s emails.  In other words, users of email client can only access their email account when they are in the office or before a particular desktop / laptop.

Webmail is becoming more essential than email client for all businesses due to the fact that users can have direct access to their webmail while they are away from the office or on holiday. Webmail has brought convenience to its users / business owners. Bear in mind that Webmail is completely different from Email Client.

Check more on the infographic below tells you the benefits of Webmail in a much clearer way.

www-webmail (1)

1) Easy Access

- You can access webmail directly as long as you have internet access

- You only need to remember the URL which brings you to your email login, your email address (equivalent to your login ID) and password.

2) Backup

- By using webmail, you can still access all your information (previously sent emails, drafts, other folders, etc) anywhere with a browser and internet connection.  No configuration or additional software is required, just an Internet browser.

- NO worries of data loss even if your computer crashes or in the case of theft.

3) Universality

- There are many types of email accounts, but no email accounts can be accessed through the email program. Email clients connect to the account via server by using email protocols such as POP or IMAP. If these are not available, then the program will not be able to access the messages, and users will be unable to check and reply to clients’ emails.

4) Do not need to own a computer

- Webmail accounts can be used at any he computer. Thus webmail users do not need to own a computer as they can access their emails using a friend’s laptop, or simply at a cyber café

4 Ways To Promote Business Websites And Increase Traffic

March 25th, 2014

540x540-4ways-inclrease-traffic (1)

Does your website have low traffic? Are you curious about WHY others have thousands or hundred thousands of visitors? There are in fact, a few effective ways which can promote your business websites and increase traffic.

 

1) Social Media

 Do you have any social media account or fan page such as Facebook? If your answer is NO, this is one of the reasons your website is not getting enough traffic.

Start promoting your website with FREE media channel such as Facebook to save your company plenty of financial resources.

You are able to see the powerful effects on your business once you have a Facebook fan page for your business. Facebook can help to attract thousands of visitors or more to view your website. Benefit from the power of Facebook. Use it to boost your website traffic and generate profits FOC, by promoting your company products and services! Remember to include a link which will bring your fan page followers to your website.

 

2) Direct Mail

Some might still be under the impression that sending emails to customers from time to time is unnecessary as many fear that customers would consider the emails as SPAM. The truth is emails can help your business greatly if used correctly.

You can use direct email to keep reminding your customers of your existence. One way of achieving this is to send greeting emails to them from time to time especially during festive seasons.

Besides, you can collect your prospects’ email addresses by offering them free gifts. With more and more customer email addresses in your database, you can inform them of your promos and let them click on the link provided in the email before directing them to your websites.

 

3) Guerilla Marketing

Using an attractive way to promote your company website or brand name, guerilla marketing is a good method to increase the traffic of your company webpage. It will make people remember your brand name easily and people may start to surf your company website and increase traffic.

You can start the first step by designing creative and special business cards. Most of the business cards are in rectangle shape with a name and contact number. Think out of the box! Create something different to attract customer attention.

 

4) Coupons

This is another way to drive traffic to your website. You can distribute free gifts or coupons to customers and require them to first visit your website and key in their contact info (such as email addresses) before redemption. This will help in boosting your web traffic as well.

Coupons if used correctly can help your business to build a good relationship with the customers and gain their trust at the same time. Once they have experienced your good products and services, they will definitely come back.

Congratulations! The World Wide Web turns 25 years old today

March 14th, 2014

www-25years

Twenty-five years ago, the World Wide Web was just an idea from a young computer scientist at a European physics lab. Today, the simple idea had become a vital thing in everyone’s lives, linking BIILIONS of people together, thanks to Tim Berners-Lee for the great invention.

The young computer scientist started to invent the www in 1989. At first, he was rejected and ignored by his colleagues when he proposed.  However, with great perseverance, he wrote the first hypertext browser/editor (World Wide Web) and the first web server (http), which was launched to the public in 1991.

Two years later, there were more than 500 known web servers and the World Wide Web had counted for one per cent of the Internet traffic. Twenty years later there were already an estimated 630 million websites.

The Global Internet Usage Statistics 2013 shows that there are 2.4 billion Internet users around the globe. Today, www has become a part of our lives. Many cannot imagine life without the www.
