A video is an easy and effective way to communicate your message in about a minute or two. In the present century, everyone is just too busy to sit down and read a whole bunch of paragraphs or even a small message. People need things to be quick and to the point, so you need to be what the customer wants. Having videos on your website can help you better communicate with your audience and have a better connection.

You might be thinking why you really need to have videos on your website, why not just pictures or a blog can do the work? Well, let’s dig down into it.

The AYTM Market research has stated that “more than 90% of the consumers access video content on the internet”.

The transition from text and pictures to videos has been a very fast transition and now to remain in the competition you need to cope up with this transition. Businesses who fail to do so have suffered loss due to an ineffective website.

Talking about the benefits of using video content, they can:

    What is Web Hosting?

    When you design a website and want other people to see it, you will need to publish (or upload) it with a web hosting service.

    Web hosting services work by storing your website files in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network. When someone types in your web address (such as www.advertisingsolutions.co.za), the Internet connects to the web server holding your website files and then transfers your website information back to their computer. From there they can surf and view the pages of your website.


    What is a Domain Name?

    A domain name (www.yourcompanyname.co.za) is essentially your company’s Internet address; the same way your company’s street address is used to find your offices, a domain name is used to find your website. Consider this: Pick a domain name that’s memorable and relevant!

    Please note: Domain pricing depends on the extension, see pricing here: https://advertisingsolutions.co.za/domains/

    What is a slider?

    A banner slider is comprised of images and text on multiple slides, allowing you to rotate content on a single space on your website. It’s most commonly the first thing you see (apart from the logo and menu) on a website’s home page. The purpose of the slider is to catch the attention of the viewer while being visually appealing and easy to read. It can be used to display selected information, such as promotions or highlighting specific products or services, and can also be used to easily navigate your site.

    How many should I use?

    This is dependable on the amount of content you have on your website. Small websites that do not have much information 1-2 sliders will be enough. Websites with more pages and content to market will require more sliders to make the navigation of the site easily digestible for the viewer, while promoting certain products or content. We do not recommend more than 5 slides, as we find that most viewers spend a few minutes on your home page before moving on to another page and won’t view more than 5 slides.

    Your Home page welcomes the viewer, with a general summary of your company and what you have to offer. It also helps the viewer easily navigate your site. Your About page may list company history, your mission and vision, team members, company values or any information regarding your company.

    Your Products or Services page is where you expand on the products or services you have.

It is also good to have an enquiry form so potential clients can easily get in contact with you.

    These are just the most common pages used, the amount of pages will depend on the amount of information you have.
