In 2004 AMD Lofts commissioned Applause to build a web site for them combined with a multi-media CDROM which would assist in marketing the company and drive traffic to the website.  The website and CDROM have worked extremely well for the company in the intervening years, creating a professional high quality image that proved to be key in winning major building and loft conversion contracts.

AMDloftsHowever the original site, designed to work well with the smaller computer monitors and dial up internet connections of the day, now needed a makeover to optimise today’s technologies.  AMD came back to us to provide design ideas and costings and once again chose Applause to carry out the web revisions which included a larger screen format, high quality images, interactive portfolio module and streaming audio testimonials.

The latest thinking on search engine performancesocial media marketing of the company and web analytics has also been integrated which enable the Directors of AMD to monitor and assess the return on their investment [ROI].

A further module is planned for the new year which will encompass full 3D flythrough of key projects.

Whilst on-line web based  media is now very effective at delivering video and rich media content DVD still has a unique place in providing high quality video using  simple and uninterruptable technology.

alfaTwo projects just completed involved encoding and editing high definition HD video source material into looped interactive dvd video discs for exhibition and showroom digital signage display.   In each case discs were replicated and distributed to showrooms or retail outlets throughout the country and displayed continuously at exhibition sites.

Technology involved is simply a display plasma or LCD TV and a DVD player eliminating the need for sophisticated equipment with it attendant security issues or web based connections.

Short of a complete power failure the programmes will run and interactivity easily controlled by the player remote.

Video content can also be encoded to run on standalone digital signage displays or delivered online to mobile devices and video player.

The Wales & West Festival is an annual exhibition and competition event for amateur wine and beer makers from all over the country.  Some 500 or so members, friends, wine and beer making circles  gather each year to enter a national competition, reunite with friends, enjoy music and entertainment and take part in wine and beer tutored tastings.

wwwfSched09As this year was a special 45th Sapphire Anniversary of the first Festival the organising committee encouraged members to photograph and record video of the weekend event.  Applause was then asked to assemble and edit the digital video footage into two programs, a short 4 minute taster Flash video to be displayed on You Tube and a longer 15  minute streamed video to run together with the 4  minute option and hosted on the Wales and West web site.  Applause also encoded the video to mp4  format for mobile video delivery.

Judges Convenor and Vice Chairman Ron Williams commented “Amateur associations such as ours can make good use of these new viral marketing technologies as an extremely cost effective way of publicising our events.  We hope that such publicity will in turn encourage people to join in with local groups of people interested in socialising and learning more about wine and beer making”

Applause has built a trusting working relationship  with the The Wales and West Committee over a number of years and once again they have  asked us to start work on promotional leaflets, schedules and booking forms for next year’s 46th Conference and Festival to be held  28th – 31st May 2010. And also to look at social and viral marketing technologies to reach potential interested groups.

p.s. All the material for the promotional flyers, brochures, booking forms and leaflets have now gone to print and scheduled to be sent out during November

proposaldoc2Preparing and writing proposal or tender documents is a time consuming and exhaustive process, with information and key budgetary details not available till the last minute and your sales people constantly honing and changing the text right up to the wire.  But despite all of this you also know that you want the document to be well designed and professionally presented in order to stand out from the other competitor proposals on the client’ s table.

By using Adobe’s InDesign and InCopy technologies we can help with this process.  Allowing content providers to work in MSWord or InCopy to provide the raw text, while we  integrate content with design and layout. If you would like to know more please call to see how we can relieve some of the stress in providing creative design and content clarity to your proposals

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
