Website Design & Digital Marketing Tips

Robots now more athletic than most humans

For years we have all been carrying around some sort of computer that was way smarter than us in the form of a mobile phone. Your phone effectively has 'super intelligence' in any number of areas. It can do maths, English and answer most questions quicker than you, it can beat you in any number of board games such as Chess, Othello, Go and more. Computers have been able to beat the World Champions of these games for a number of years. Physical movement and coordination have always been an area where computers sucked, although that appears to have come to an end. Check the above clip from Boston Dynamics. That is truly amazing... the average human can't do a backflip! It's ok, don't panic though, we can still do feelings, emotion, morals and social interaction better than the machines.... but for how many more decades?! 

Hey if it all goes to shite here is a book to get you through.

How to Make Money With Subscriptions

Do you have subscriptions for your socks and underwear yet? What about a subscription for your dog’s food, or cat’s supplements? If you haven’t started purchasing your essentials via subscription yet, it’s time to start. With all the decisions consumers have to make these days, decision fatigue is understandable. So, make it easy for your customers to shop with you - repeatedly.

The way it's framed varies - call it auto-ship, or a membership but it's all based on a subscription model. As a business owner, it's a great chance to ensure customer retention and to give you some predictability around revenue. Consumers are already familiar with paying for things on a recurring basis - from their internet services and mobile phones, to donations to charitable organisations and their Netflix subscription. Many people find it convenient in an era where we are overwhelmed with choices.

How To Make Subscriptions Work for Your Business

Now, ten years ago, if we told you that people would subscribe to receive a new pair of socks or undies delivered to their door each month you probably would have been doubtful that it would take off. But that's just what MeUndies offers its customers and they have been steadily growing since 2011 when they launched. So if you think it can't work for your business, think twice.

Woocommerce the ecommerce plugin for WordPress

About Woocommerce

WordPress was originally released in 2003 and few people could have predicted the impact that it would have. Roughly 75 million websites are built in WordPress, that is about 26% of the web! If you want to do e-commerce in WordPress there is only one option as far as I'm concerned, and that's Woocommerce. I have the numbers to back me up here. According to the Woocommerce website, there have been 22 million downloads of Woocommerce. That might not necessarily mean there are 22 million sites running Woocommerce, but it is still a healthy number and shows strong support for the software. One number we can feel more sure about is the percentage of the e-commerce market that Woocommerce holds and that is a whopping 41% of the market share. That is to say of all the e-commerce systems, such as Magento, Squarespace, Shopify etc, Woocommerce owns 41% of that space, with Magento and Shopify coming in second an 5% each. To me it's almost a no-brainer, if you are serious about e-commcerce then look no further. Woocommerce started in 2008 and has gone from strength to strength.
