Web Marketing

"In order to generate targeted visitor traffic your website will be optimised for your target audience and for the major search engines..."

Internet Marketing is a technique that promotes your brand, image or website on the Internet using Search Engines, Directories, Online Advertising banners, email advertising, blogs etc.

The aim of search engine optimisation is to generate targeted visitor traffic to your website. Target visitors are those who are interested in your company, your products and services, and not just random general traffic (Surfers).

In order to generate targeted visitor traffic your website will be optimised for your target audience and for the major search engines, such as Google, Yahoo, and AltaVista. In fact with OMNIX hosting solutions your website will be entered on over 3000 search engines and directories. When a target visitor enters a keyword or phrase into a Search Engine we want them to find your site in the first pages of the search results.

Interactive - Multi-media interfaces that truely engage you

The field of interactive interface design is a wide and interesting subject and the examples shown in this section merely scrape the surface of what can be achieved. Imagine being able to interactively design a room layout you desire for your home and then all of the products automatically being placed in your shopping basket. Imagine a community website where dragging and dropping a picture of a community member adds them to your friends list.

Think about how interactive elements within your website or product design might engage the customer, making the use of your system natural, interesting, easy, memorable and fun. Let your imagination flow. Interactive interface design concentrates on the following areas:

Human Computer Interface - The interaction and translation of your key presses, mouse movements, voice input and any other form of interaction between you and the computer or any other form of hardware technology is translated via the 'interactive interface'. Websites, games, applications, software, phones and many more all require an interactive human / computer interface.

OMNIX interactive interface designers understand the subtleties of both how the system is going to be used and expectations of the user themselves, this ensures that the software user interface and the hardware computer elements mesh seamlessly

Action / Reaction - For each action the user takes, the selection of a menu or the simply clicking of a 'NEXT' button, the reaction of the interactive media should be positive. Action and reaction are the core components of true interactive design. How the communication between the user and the interface unfolds over time is something that OMNIX interactive designers fully understand.

State - As part of its role as translator, interactive interface design is also concerned with ensuring the user understands the current state of the application. In the example of the Jigsaw the initial state of the puzzle is made clear by the pieces scattered on the right and the dim / faded appearance of the final puzzle on the left.

Sound is also used to communicate a successful or failed attempt at placing a piece. Interactive software and computer systems communicate state so that users can easily understand the types of operations that are available or appropriate at any given time.

Error Handling - When working with any interface or interactive system errors can occur. As with our Jigsaw example and the misplacement of a piece, the user is notified and the piece is replaced to the right of the board, in order that it can be selected again. Designers must anticipate mistakes or user error and ensure that the user can always continue in an intuitive manner even in the event of system malfunction.

Skill set - there's no substitute for experience

The interactive menu on the new Park Insurance Services website cycles through many of their insurance products. With animated text flying onto the screen and a bright interactive menu the user is quickly draw to the insurance product they require.

Professional graphic designers with expertise, talent and flair. They are able to draw on expert knowledge of the following image, video & sound creation tools.

The real skill is with the people and their ability to interpret your brief and produce something extra special, something unique, something for you to be proud of.
