Earn affiliate income for your website

Posted 23rd March 2010 | Category: Web Marketing Blog

I just found out about a really simple website for generating affiliate income, although it will work best if you're a publisher, e.g. a blog, magazine or information resource. Skimlinks provides a clever bit of code that automatically inserts affiliate links into your content, so you can make money if someone clicks through.

Cheaper web development rates

I just wanted to let all our clients know that we are offering a reduced hourly rate on our maintenance work if you buy hours upfront.

Create art in whatever you do

I've just listened to a great podcast interview with Seth Godin, the renowned marketing expert. One thing in particular that stood out for me was his comment about creating art in whatever you do.

Cheap recruitment software

Posted 6th March 2010 | Category: Web Development Blog

Over the years we have developed many recruitment systems for our clients. From basic systems for managing candidate details & CV's to more complicated systems that deal with the basic details for candidates, clients, contacts and vacancies as well as including vacancy application stages, secure access for clients and candidates, bookings, invoicing and reporting. For these bespoke recruitment solutions we have our very own micro site detailing these services and prices: Bluelinemedia recruitment solutions.

Sales without the selling

Posted 2nd March 2010 | Category: About Us Blog

The best way to sell services is not to sell at all, but to offer help and advice around your expertise. Our approach has always been to listen first, then come back to our office and talk about the project with a colleague, before putting together a proposal of what we think will help.

Getting started with SEO

Posted 2nd March 2010 | Category: Web Marketing Blog

I recently stumbled across a document published by Google that describes how best to optimise sites for Google and other search engines. It is written from a novices point of view, but seems to summarise the basic concepts well. It also pretty much covers the starter SEO we apply for our clients and as such provides a useful explanation of what we will do for them.

Upload large files to a website

Posted 1st March 2010 | Category: Web Design Blog

Recently we had an issue where we needed to upload large document files through the browser. Uploading documents through the browser is normally limited to around 10 to 15MB using a simple HTML form and for most users that is sufficient. When documents are above this size the file upload will usually fail due to the upload timing out.
