Pensford’s second festival is coming up – July 17-19 2009. They are still fundraising to repair the local community hall so budgets are very tight. We produced a low cost website for them last year and keeping the existing format have updated the content and produced promotional flyers, leaflets, posters and roadside signage to advertise the event. It is a great day out especially if the weather is good, sunshine, countryside all around, few beers and a barbeque. What more could you want! Info on www.pensfordbeerfestival.co.uk

Why not try our new web rental service

Posted by 1 May, 2009

Why splash out on a website – when you can rent one for a lot, lot less? Customers will judge you by your website… and first impressions count. Research shows that you have just seven seconds to make that impression. Get it right and you’ll win business – often from unexpected sources. Get it wrong […]

Why splash out on a website – when you can rent one for a lot, lot less?

999website_leafletCustomers will judge you by your website… and first impressions count. Research shows that you have just seven seconds to make that impression. Get it right and you’ll win business – often from unexpected sources. Get it wrong and you’ll be dismissed as amateur.

But funding a professionally-designed website can cause problems for the cash flow of the average small or start-up business. Here at Applause, we’re offering the best of all worlds: a ‘rental’ solution that allows you to significantly reduce the cost of generating a professional website, and then spread the cost over monthly payments.

www.999website-rental.co.uk is the fast, flexible and inexpensive way for business start-ups, small businesses, charities and social groups to create a powerful on-line presence. For just a £99 set-up fee and £9.99 a month, you’ll have your own domain name, a site with real impact setting out your organisation’s products and services – complete with images – and hosting on a robust server. You’ll even have your own dedicated email facilities.

You may not have the resources to fund bespoke web development, but you need to make potential customers sit up and take notice.  This is the solution that ticks all the boxes.

www.999website-rental.co.uk is based on a design template system: you simply pick your design from a choice of standard ones on offer, or ask us to take the style from an existing website, provide words and pictures then we do the rest.

What’s more, www.999website-rental.co.uk grows with you: if you want to upgrade or add features such as search, a news section or a search engine optimisation we’ll be there to do it for you.

We think it’s the smartest web design service currently available; and for anyone who hasn’t got a big budget to spend, there’s no

Multi purpose stationery and brand identity

Posted by 1 May, 2009

When creating business stationery, designing a new businesses logo or gathering photos, graphics, video media etc for a marketing project, it is worth looking over all the purposes that you might put these assets to.

When creating business stationery, designing a new businesses logo or gathering photos, graphics, video media etc for a marketing project, it is worth looking over all the purposes that you might put these assets to. You might say well that’s pretty obvious, but you would be surprised how often media is created for one purpose, paid for,  and then to discover it won’t work for another.  A common problem is authoring media for web which by nature is small, compact and at computer screen resolution and finding it turns into a  mushy mosaic when produced as an exhibition banner!

We try to ensure your money is spent in the right way developing media assets that you only pay for once and can use for may purposes

As a recent example we have just produced a range of stationery and marketing media for two new companies CC Two video services and Set & Staging conference equipment hire. Using logo design provided by Neil Phipps a local designer Applause has created artwork for the conventional letterheads, comp slips, business cards. But also provided more specific print and online solutions for email stationery, bar code labelling, dvd digipack cases, powerpoint and proposal document templates and exhibition pop up banners.
