I’m hitting the double digits this week, as it is officially week 10 of my internship (again, where is my cake?). It took me 10 weeks but I’ve officially been trusted with keys which is kind of a big deal (for nobody except me of course)! But it is the little things that count in life and I’m very proud of my keys, it was very satisfying to open the door this morning! Continue reading
Google star ratings are a visual incentive to click! When you see star ratings underneath a webpage as opposed to another you’re more likely to trust that website more. This is because people trust other people and are more likely to want a product or service that has been tested before and has positive reviews over another that has no proof of usage. So the question remains: how do we get those stars?
You may or may not have realised but there is a brand new feature on your WhatsApp Messenger. There is now a new status tab, similar to SnapChat and Instagram Stories. It allows you to update your status with a picture, GIF or short video to your contacts. This can also be customised with emojis and annotations and with a limitation of being up for only 24 hours, again all similar to Snapchat and Instagram Stories. Continue reading
This is week 9 of my internship and I’ve been knighted. That means I may or may not have a title! This title varies from the kind of job I’m doing so I’ll have two split personalities, one being Strategy Plus’ very own Account Manager and the other being the SEO (kind of) specialist. As the Account Manager, I will redirect tasks coming from clients to the person that is going to deal with the request, as well as managing administrative work and accounts. As the SEO (kind of) specialist, I will deal with link building, content ideas and checking if the data online is correct (Shout out to me for starting to become important!). Continue reading
Hello readers, it is officially my second month at Strategy Plus, where is my celebratory cake I wonder? This week started with a meeting and a Photoshop lesson. I now know how to airbrush the wrinkles accumulated in two months of work! I’m joking about the wrinkles, only partially about the cake. Continue reading
The internet arguably has changed our behaviour as consumers, gone are the days people see a car ad and go down to the dealership. The internet is now the next stop before any contact is made.
It’s not until you look back at the history of a website that you realise just how much it has evolved. Hindsight is a beautiful thing! With that being said it’s time to delve back in time to see how 5 of the most popular websites have changed over time.
How time flies! Sometimes it’s only birthdays when you look back and reminisce. As it’s 20 years since we started building websites, I thought it would be good to do just that with the help of WayBack Machine.
My Dad created Strategy Plus helping big businesses venture in to new markets back in the 90’s. Businesses like Knight Frank needed websites in foreign languages for new offices in places such as Prague. My Dad went on the hunt to find somebody called a web developer. This is how Cristian joined the business and started to build websites in 1997!
This was arguably the biggest year for Strategy Plus as I gradated from University and joined the family business!
Take a look at the first SP homepage I could find dated back to 2001. Unlike today’s websites, this homepage had a couple of flash files with moving images. This was all pretty advanced back then and I still like the simplicity of it.
