The WordPress update 6.1 is a great new addition to the digital world, launched in November 2022. The template editor, built with patterns, global styles, blocks and design tools, themes, and wider adoption gave better editing access to the theme.json editing. 

Previously WordPress allowed you to easily embed videos from popular online video-sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo into your blog posts. You only had to paste the URL of the video into the “Insert Video” dialog box, and WordPress would automatically embed the video into your post.

This feature is especially useful for bloggers who want to share their favourite videos with their readers without having to host the videos themselves. It also makes it easy to include videos in your blog posts without worrying about coding or other technical details.

The WordPress video feature is available for all business, eCommerce, and premium plan holders. And for the ones with a self-hosted site, they have the option to use Jetpack VideoPress

How to Add New Chapters to the Video?

Adding chapters to your videos is a great way to improve the user experience on your site. By allowing users to jump to specific sections of your video, you can help them find the information they’re looking for more quickly and easily.

To add chapters to your videos, simply edit the post or page containing the video and click on the “Add Chapters” button above the video player. This will open a dialog box where you can enter the start and end times for each chapter, as well as a title and description.

Once you’ve added all of your chapters, they will appear as thumbnail images beneath the video player, which users can click on to jump to that section of the video. You can also reorder your chapters by drag-and-dropping them in the order you want them to appear.

After its success with DALL-E, launched in January 2021, Open AI returned with a bang with improved AI- DALL-E 2....

After its success with DALL-E, launched in January 2021, Open AI returned with a bang with improved AI- DALL-E 2. It has gained hype amongst digital marketers ever since.

DALL-E 2 was released as a research project with a never-ending waitlist. However, they did open-source CLIP, which forms the basis of DALL-E 2. On 19 May 2022, Open AI tweeted that DALL-E 2 will be onboarding 1000 people each week and will continue to enhance the system.

On 28 September 2022, Open AI posted a blog stating that they were removing the waitlist for DALL-E 2. With this new release, people hurtled to DALL-E 2, and as of 7 January 2023, DALL-E 2 has over 3 million users generating 4 million images every day. 

So if you are interested in knowing more about what DALL-E 2 is and how to use DALL-E 2, stay with us till the end. Because we’ve got something insightful to share with you. 

What is DALL-E 2?

DALL-E 2 is a groundbreaking artificial intelligence (AI) system developed by OpenAI that is capable of generating high-quality images from textual descriptions. The AI is programmed in a way that starts with small dots and develops an image, understanding the image description, via a process known as diffusion. 

DALL-E 2 is better than DALL-E in image processing and resolution. Below is an example of the same output generated by DALL-E and DALL-E 2. 

Source: Open AI

How Does DALL-E 2 Work?

The functioning of DALL-E 2 follows three concepts:

  • CLIP

The clipping process helps to combine image-caption and create image-text embeddings.

  • PRIOR

The CLIP embedding is sent to the diffusion prior to producing an image embedding. 

  • DECODER (UNCLIP)

As the name suggests, the decoder, or the unclip, decodes the embedded message. The embedded image is sent to the diffusion decoder to produce the final image result. 

Source: Open AI

Features of DALL-E 2

1. The ability to generate high-quality images from text descriptions, including both realistic and stylized images.

2. The ability to generate images of objects and scenes that are not present in the training data allows for the creation of novel and unique images.

3. The use of a transformer-based architecture enables the model to effectively process long-range dependencies and generate images that are coherent and consistent with the input text.

4. The ability to generate images of various sizes and resolutions, depending on the needs of the user.

5. The use of a multi-modal and hierarchical latent space allows the model to generate a wide range of images with a variety of shapes, sizes, and textures.

6. The ability to generate images with fine-grained details, such as facial expressions and intricate patterns, allows for the creation of highly realistic and visually appealing images.

7. DALL-E 2 is designed to create related images from a provided image, varying in size and orientation.


8. DALL-E 2 can expand the original image to give it a wider orientation, yet stand true to the original image. 

9. It can add/remove components from an existing image. It is also designed in a way to add shadows, reflections, and textures according to the added components. 

Source: Open AI

10. DALL-E 2 has a feature called text diff. With this feature, DALL-E 2 can change one image to another.

11. With the interpolation feature, DALL-E 2 can show the “ageing back” of a particular image. 

Limitations and Risks of DALL-E 2

We have discussed the positive aspects of DALL-E 2, now let’s move on to the risks and limitations. 

  • Misleading Audience 

Creating digital images via DALL-E 2 and not disclosing the involvement of AI in your work is against the content policy of Open AI. 

With the DALL-E subscription you can remove the watermark, but depicting the work as human-generated will be considered misleading to the audience. 

  • Uploading Explicit Content 

Explicit content includes nudity, sexual content, or content depicting/arousing sexual emotions. Open AI has policies against the generation of such content via DALL-E 2. 

  • False Information 

Although it is possible to detect the slight difference between deepfake images, DALL-E 2 is programmed to create real-looking images. Creating and spreading false news like wildfire is strictly against DALL-E 2’s policy. 

  • Bullying/Harassment 

DALL-E 2 refrains individuals from creating almost genuine photoshopped images and using them to harass or threaten someone. It is against the policy to promote any content that depicts self-harm or encourages one to do so. 

  • Spelling Issues 

Although DALL-E 2 is great at generating all kinds of images, it is terrible with spelling. The CLIP embeddings play a major role in the outcome images. If the CLIP embedding is not familiar with the word, it would generate insignificant outputs. 

  • Hindered Results 

Melanie Mitchell tweeted that the DALL-E 2’s AI has limited intelligence and is somewhat closer to human-level intelligence but not quite there. It is unable to understand some patterns and generate 100% appropriate results. 

Evan Morikawa shared a tweet depicting the outcomes of two similar prompts and the difference between them.

In Conclusion 

DALL-E 2 is a powerful, creative tool if channelled the right way. However, with constant updates in AI, there will be no such tool to match its power. 

But you, as a user, should be cautious when creating content on DALL-E 2. With all the good aspects comes the negative. But if used in the right way, it is possible to overpower the negatives. 

Stay tuned with Digital Kangaroos, a leading web development company in Ludhiana, and we will be back with the latest blogs on digital marketing and web development.

Asia’s largest and premier auto show is ready to take off in January 2023. The 16th edition of Auto Expo is all set to take place at the India Expo Mart in Greater Noida from January 13th to January 18th, 2023, while the auto component shows Auto Expo 2023: Components will take place at the Pragati Maidan Complex in New Delhi from January 12th to 15th, 2023. The mega-event brings together the brightest minds in the automotive world to showcase all the best products, technologies, and futuristic concepts.

Talking about the brightest minds, how can we not talk about Happy Steels, one of our clients participating in the Auto Expo 2023? Happy Steels is a leading manufacturer of automotive parts and components with a long history of serving customers worldwide. As the company prepares to participate in Auto Expo 2023 and celebrate its 50th anniversary in the industry, it wanted to establish a new visual identity to showcase its products and services in its Auto Expo campaign.

Our team at Digital Kangaroos had a great time working with Happy Steels on this significant project. We began by working with the company to develop a new visual identity that reflects its position as a trusted, reliable manufacturer and supplier of high-quality automotive parts and components.

One of the key elements of the campaign was to design theme-based banners and posters to showcase the journey of the company over 50 years. Our team brainstormed around the concept for exhibition stall banners and came up with the creative idea of showcasing the values of Happy Steels with Olympic sports.

Our in-house graphic design team created several posters depicting Olympic sports such as javelin throw, weightlifting, relay, swimming, pole vault, and boxing that shared a sporting value as the company’s core value during their 50-year transformation. The idea was executed successfully, and the client was satisfied with the banners and decided to kick off their AutoExpo 2023 campaign with the same.

In addition to the banners, we also designed theme-based promotional materials for Happy Steels for Auto Expo 2023. It includes diaries, catalogues, bags, notepads, and letterheads, that will be handed out for promotion. These materials will help to showcase the company’s journey and get the word out about its participation in the event and its 50th anniversary in the industry.

Next, our team worked together to deliver anew website for Happy Steels. We worked with the company to develop a website from scratch, starting with developing their website content, designing the layout, developing a functional website, and optimizing it for search engines. It included adding detailed pages, blogs, testimonials from satisfied customers, and information about the company’s history and values. The new website showcases Happy Steels’ products and services and provides valuable information for customers and partners. The website features clean and modern design elements, with a focus on usability and accessibility.

Digital Kangaroos is honoured to work with such a respected and well-known client, and we look forward to helping Happy Steels grow and thrive in the future.

That is not all; we also contributed to the success of several other brands in the digital space last year. If you are also looking forward to taking your business to new heights in the new year, you are at the right place.

We provide a wide range of services such as branding, website designing and development, digital marketing, search engine optimization, etc. Entrepreneurs who wish to expand their businesses and gain the advantages of marketing strategies can contact us.

Web development is experiencing the dawn of new technologies and techniques. In 2023, there is a high chance that technological...

Web development is experiencing the dawn of new technologies and techniques. In 2023, there is a high chance that technological trends will be a paramount factor in website creation. These trends include the increasing use of artificial intelligence (AI), the rise of accelerated mobile pages (AMPs), the growing popularity of voice search optimization, the adoption of chatbots for customer service, and the trend towards personalizing content for individual users. 

The increasing importance of the mobile user experience and the growth of voice assistants and smart devices drive these trends. Many top-tier web development agencies in India and globally are constantly trying to accommodate these trends to their leverage, yield the best web development service, and enhance drive engagement.

There is a high expectation among web developers for 2023 to be an exciting year to shape the web development field and drive innovation. 

Blockchain Technology has come a long way in recent years and is now being used in a variety of industries, from finance to healthcare to supply chain management. As we look towards 2023, we will likely see more widespread adoption of blockchain technology in web development.

One trend we may see in 2023 is the increased use of blockchain for decentralized applications (DApps). According to Investopedia, DApps are open source and not handled by a single authority. 

That means they are less vulnerable to attacks and outages and are often more transparent and secure. DApps have the potential to revolutionize industries by enabling peer-to-peer transactions and enabling greater control over personal data.

As more and more personal data is being collected and stored online, the increasing cyber crime rates have compelled many web development agencies in India to search for secure and transparent systems for managing digital identities. Blockchain technology has the potential to enable the creation of safe and immutable digital identity records, which could be used for everything from online voting to identity verification.

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are web applications that use modern web technologies to deliver a native app-like experience to users. Although it is not a new technology, in 2023, we can expect to see PWAs continue to gain popularity as a web development trend.

One of the main benefits of PWAs is that they are easier to develop and maintain than native apps. Because they are built using standard web technologies, developers can use their existing skills and tools to create PWAs, without the need to learn new languages or frameworks. This means that PWAs can be developed and deployed faster and at a lower cost than native apps.

With PWAs, it is possible to access the web directly without downloading any application. Reports show that in the second quarter of 2022, approximately 59% of users accessed websites through mobile devices, and this data does not include tabloids. Thus, making PWAs the most valuable web development trend of 2023. 

In 2023, we may see the development of new tools and frameworks for building and deploying PWAs, and the integration of new technologies such as Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) into PWAs.

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMPs) are a way to create web pages that load faster on mobile devices. They are an open-source initiative by Google, launched in 2015, that aims to improve mobile web performance by allowing developers to create lightweight versions of their web pages. There is a high expectation of growth of AMP in 2023 to help businesses and organizations prioritize the mobile user experience. 

One of the main benefits of AMP is that it allows developers to create web pages that load much faster on mobile devices, even at low-bandwidth connections. This is especially important given the increasing importance of mobile search and the fact that page speed affects the decision-making of customers.

Google has stated that it gives a slight ranking boost to AMP-enabled pages, which means that they are more likely to appear at the top of search results. This can be especially beneficial for businesses and organizations that rely on organic traffic from search engines to drive traffic to their websites.

Moreover, with AMP, developers can create web pages that are more interactive and engaging, which can help to keep users on the site for long periods. It has proven beneficial for businesses and organizations that rely on user engagement to drive conversions or generate revenue.

Voice Search Optimisation helps with optimizing an eCommerce website with voice search queries. Oberlo statistics state that 71% of consumers prefer to clear their doubts through voice search, and the percentage is believed to grow in 2023.

One of the main benefits of voice search optimization is that it can help to improve the discoverability of a website or web content. With the rise of voice assistants like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, more and more people are using voice search to find information online.

Voice optimization can be of assistance to users who are on the go or have limited mobility, as they can use voice search to quickly find the information they need without manually typing the search query.

In addition to improving discoverability and the user experience, voice search optimization can also help to improve the accessibility of a website or web content. The content becomes more accessible to users with disabilities, giving businesses an edge over their competitors.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) Chatbots are computer programs that use natural language processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms to mimic human conversation and assist users in completing tasks or answering questions.

The concept of AI chatbots is not new among the best web developers. They have eased the work of both businesses and customers by providing immediate assistance. It has proven to enhance user experience and improve customer satisfaction. 

AI chatbots help to automate routine tasks, such as answering frequently asked questions or guiding users through a process. It adds more time in the hands of the customer service representative to focus on more complex tasks. 

Since chatbots are powered by AI, they collect data and provide insights about customer behavior and preferences. E-commerce businesses suggest personalized product recommendations by analyzing user interactions with the chatbot.

Content Personalisation has helped personalize web content for users using individual preferences, behaviors, and characteristics.

Using content personalization, the best web development agencies can provide personalized and relevant content to users according to their interests and needs, decreasing the bounce rate.

Further, content personalization helps to gain customer loyalty and improve the effectiveness of marketing campaigns. Personalized content encourages the users to engage more in the website and take desired actions, like making a purchase or signing up for a newsletter. 

With the collected data on user preferences and interests, not only e-commerce but also brick-and-mortar websites can benefit by providing a better user experience. They can even work on the parts they lack by taking valuable insights from the preferred content by the users. This data works wonders in optimizing marketing strategies and improving the overall customer experience.

Single-Page Application (SPA) loads all of the necessary HTML, CSS, and JavaScript files within a single page, rather than requiring the user to load new pages as they navigate through the app. In 2023, many companies will prefer a single-page application to improve the user experience and performance of their web applications.

The single-page application improves the user experience by providing a seamless and fast navigation experience. Visiting different pages on the website to access information can be a tiring process, and users refrain from doing so. However, a single-page application increases the possibility of users returning.

Single-page applications also make the development process easier for web developers, while improving the performance of the website. Since all of the necessary files are present within a single page, there is no need to send additional HTTP requests to the server to load new pages, which can help to reduce the amount of data that needs to be transferred and improve the overall performance of the app.

Is Technology the Future?

As we enter 2023, it is clear that the use of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Voice Recognition technology will continue to shape the future of web development. Companies that embrace these trends will be well-positioned to meet the evolving needs of their customers and stay ahead of the competition. 

Digital Kangaroos, a stellar web development and software company, is no different. We want the best personalized websites for our clients, and our professional and creative kangaroos are constantly evolving their knowledge with the latest technology to present the above client expectations website. 

We are keen on deploying new technologies in our working environment and optimizing the speed of our service delivery with the above satisfactory work.

The digital marketing era has made it necessary to have a responsive website design. However, the website designing task is not as easy as it may sound. 

It is essential to have an updated version of the website to get the best results for an interactive website design. 

An updated and minimalist website design ensures a higher lead generation. A potential customer will only visit the website if the website offers high security and a user-friendly experience. 

However, checking all the components of a perfect website is not the work of a single individual. Content, design, development, and SEO savvy together form a reliable and effective website.

Developing a website is specifically important for e-commerce websites. Everyone prefers to shop in the comfort of their home. 

The customer would only surf the website if it has smooth and fast responses. 

But why do you need to hire a website development agency? And how to choose the perfect website development agency for you?

  • Know their Expert Niche

Large-scale web development agencies have expert web developers for all e-commerce websites. However, they can be a bit expensive for startup businesses. 

If you are looking for affordable and top-notch web development services, then this tip would help you in hiring a web development agency. 

The company’s expertise will be responsible for the website’s success or failure. Take a mental note of the various types of industries that the agency has worked for.

  • Hire a Multi-tasker Agency

There is more to a web development agency than back-end development. 

It is better to choose a web development agency that has expertise in both web designing and development. 

More than 60% of internet users access search engines through mobiles, which makes it crucial to develop a mobile-friendly application. 

Getting all the benefits under the same roof avoids the nuisance of handling different web development agencies. 

Hiring one web development agency for all purposes would also ensure better communication.

  • Make your Budget

Different web development agencies offer different services. Some agencies charge an extra amount for the tools required for the project functionality. 

The website should have user-friendliness as its core. Do not get too many flashy things that might not do any good for the website. It would only add to the expenses.

Check for any concessions or discounts offered by the company. Further, compare the services different web development services offer in your budget.

Having a website is now a must for any business or company. A website is where most of your customers will view and interact with your brand.

A well-designed website will provide the customers an insight into your business. It would also offer them a detailed view of your products and services.

Nowadays, most people don’t trust businesses that don’t have established websites. Having old designs and information on your website will deter users from your site and brand.

Moreover, many digital marketing strategies revolve around web design to improve search engine optimization. 

So, let’s look at why you should invest in a new website design.

Reasons to Invest in a New Website Design

  • First Impression

Most users will only spend a few seconds on your website and judge your brand based on that. So, your website provides the first impression of your brand to potential customers.

Web design is important as it impacts your brand’s image. Thus, it is important to maintain an attractive and updated website that appeals to your audience. 

If your website is outdated, it will adversely affect the impression you make on your audience. It will also increase your bounce rate.

  • Modern Designs

Technology is changing at a quick rate. New trends and designs are emerging every day. Hence, it is essential to change and adapt your business to the latest technology.

The willingness to adopt the latest trends showcases your seriousness towards the brand. It also reels in more customers as people are always attracted to new things.

An outdated design will surely drive away potential buyers. This might lower your conversion rate.

  • Adapt to new changes

Every business or brand changes with time. The changes can be small like adding new products or services. Or they can be huge like changing the core focus of the company.

In any case, your website should be responsive and adaptable to change. This not only updates the user but also involves them in the process.

A new website design offers you the independence to make such changes. And allows you to change the subject of focus of your audience.

If you are looking for the best digital marketing agency that can create a new and unique website design, then Digital Kangaroos is the right choice for your business.

  • Mobile Optimization

One of the aspects of staying up to date with technology is making your website mobile-friendly.

Statistically, most users access your website through their mobile phones. This makes it crucial to optimize your site for mobile use. 

Moreover, Google’s search engine algorithm penalizes websites that are not optimized for mobile use. A new web design will make your website responsive across all devices. 

  • Enhanced Customer Experience

People don’t trust websites that showcase out-of-date design and information. They judge how you would treat them by the way you treat your website.

A new website design will offer your audience the best features. It will also allow them easier navigation. This enhances the customer’s experience of your site.

It is important to design a website allowing users ease of access. You can also add blogs and FAQs to further help your buyers have a good experience. 

  • Outrank your Competitors

If you have an outdated and low-quality web design, your competitors will easily outrank you. It is essential to build a trendy and attractive website to beat the competition.

With growing online stores, there are many options available for a single product. Therefore, it is essential to make a website that stands out amongst the competition and attracts your target audience. 

An updated and well-designed website will automatically put you ahead of your competitors.

  • Showcase your Brand

With a new website, you can showcase your business in a creative and brand-new manner. It provides a much-needed insight into your brand. This leads to better interaction with the customers.

Creating a content marketing strategy can help you post engaging content. This will help you showcase your brand in the best way possible. 

A good website will showcase all the best aspects of your business. It will also showcase the uniqueness of your brand. Which will make your brand stand out and attract new audiences.

  • Search Engine Optimization

With numerous emerging e-commerce websites, it is necessary to ensure that your website has a higher SERP ranking. There are many factors that affect your ranking.

Investing in a new website design can ensure that your site has improved SEO. This will automatically place your website at a higher rank. 

Furthermore, poor web design negatively impacts SEO. Thus, it is important to update your website and follow SEO-friendly practices.

  • Return on Investment

The main goal of any business or company is to make money. Therefore, your website should persuade your customers to buy your products and services. 

A new and well-designed website will surely generate a better ROI. This is the biggest reason to invest in a new website design for your business; as it would ultimately lead to more sales and profit.

To improve your ROI, it is important to look at all the things that are a must while developing a website. This would ensure that your new website design is following the latest digital marketing trends.

Major Takeaways

Investing in a new website design for your business has numerous benefits. From better user experience to boosted sales, it all relates directly to web design.

Hence, instead of having a website that is more of an online business card, you should finance a website that contributes to your business. This would make your website an investment rather than an expense.

A powerful website will work for you to generate new business and profit. Thus, your website should draw in potential buyers and target your desired audience.

When owning a business enterprise, you have tons of customers to tend to. Your website contains sensitive consumer information.

This can include their details, and credit/debit card information. Along with that, sometimes customers are impatient and can leave the website if it has slow processing.

Thus, the e-commerce website must be fast, secure, and reliable.

To clear user doubts and ensure that they are using the best, Shopify is certified Level 1 PCI DSS compliant.

Additionally, Shopify offers great app integrations with SaaS services. This means that users can host the e-commerce store according to their needs.

They can decide on the payment options, language options, shipping options, and hundreds of filters for their consumers.

Shopify prioritizes the consumers’ needs and their response is instant. It is completely the user’s choice to choose the mode of communication.

They can either opt for web chat, a personal call, or email. No matter how big or little the issue is, Shopify has a wide network to rely on.

They even offer web seminars and video tutorials to make the store-building process swift and easy.

Forbye, Shopify also has customer forums which is a great way of helping users with similar issues.

  • Dynamic SEO

Search Engine Optimization is one of the major factors that puts a website on top of Google searches. To gain maximum traffic, and a higher ranking on the SERPs, SEO is the dominant factor.

Shopify helps in achieving this by organic means. It uses advanced analytical techniques to put your website on a pedestal in the Google search engine.

Shopify provides customized meta titles and meta descriptions to enhance website traffic.

It provides various marketing tools to enhance user experience including product reviews and email marketing.

Further, it also gives the users the option to provide discount codes and gift vouchers.

  • Mobile Ready

Access to websites has increased tremendously through mobiles compared to desktops. This makes it all the more important to create mobile-friendly websites.

Shopify caters to this need. It offers a variety of themes, providing the best experience to the users,

Its backend also ensures that the website has a prompt response. All customers can access this website easily with the app or on the browser.

Shopify is available for both Android and iPhone users.

  • Visually Appealing

The ambiance of a place is what attracts the customers. Similarly, aesthetic themes are what bring them to a website.

Before purchasing or even navigating the website, consumers often check the characters the site has to offer. They make a perception based on it.

Shopify understands that thought and offers tons of themes specially curated to suit your business type. Some of the most popular ones include envy, responsiveness, dawn, and expression.

If you are a newbie entrepreneur and are not sure of what might fit your needs, Shopify helps you out. It provides some suggestions of the themes for selling locally or internationally.

  • Multiple Languages

Every entrepreneur has the goal to reach the international market and sell their products globally. However, this becomes difficult as the languages and currencies change.

Well, we know who is there for the rescue!

Shopify provides its users the liberty to sell globally. It has over 20 different languages the consumer can choose from.

Let us face it, everybody likes to shop in their native language and would like to know the price in their currencies.

Converting the currencies manually can be a tedious job and the consumer might lose interest. The website is further equipped with the option to receive refunds in the native currency.

Recapitulating

The aforementioned are some of the top reasons a user needs to know before getting a subscription to Shopify. There is a reason why thousands of people are relying on it for their online stores.

E-commerce is the process of distributing and selling products or services digitally using the internet. It is a business environment that involves selling and buying or transferring money through the Internet.

E-commerce has now become one of the most effective digital marketing strategies for small or large businesses across the world because it has so many advantages when it comes to online selling and the promotion of products or services.

Why an E-Commerce Website?

There are many reasons, why an e-commerce website is important to online businesses. One of the most important reasons is that it allows you to reach out to more customers, and generate leads and clients. Since people nowadays prefer not to go out all the time, they tend to do online surfing and shopping or prefer to go to stores near them for other general day-to-day needs.

Creating a website or an online platform (store) will surely enhance brand awareness by helping you increase your online presence and attract more customers to your offerings. This helps in engaging with your existing customers, finding out what they want, and communicating in a better way with them. No matter where you are, you will also be able to keep in touch even when your customers are miles away from you which means that your bond with customers can continue without creating or adding up any additional costs.

Another benefit of an e-commerce website for an online business is that it enables you to start selling or buying products or services straight away. There is no such need for large amounts of capital or any other resources. Moreover, this kind of strategy will surely help small businesses to further grow their client base.

More opportunities can arise through an online platform or say e-commerce website, social media marketing, or apt optimization. The internet also allows online businesses to take advantage of this channel without having to spend too much or out-of-budget money. So, it is a great opportunity for online businesses to build their brand identity and spread their brand awareness.

They can use social media platforms and can also list their products on online marketplaces, or even create their own e-commerce website with product offerings at greatly reduced costs if compared with general or traditional methods.

Digital Kangaroos, a premier web development and digital marketing agency offers exclusive services in designing E-commerce websites for different businesses.

Given below are 5 reasons why having an e-commerce website is important for your online business:

1. E-commerce Helps Online Businesses to go Global and Help Customers Pursue Diversity

An e-commerce website allows a business to reach more and more customers for sales, generating leads, and marketing. In some cases, it can even help you to achieve rapid growth if the selling product over your online business is right.

A good way to do this is through online marketplaces where you can certainly sell your products or services. But of course, you will need a well-optimized and good website that precisely matches customer expectations and any other requirements so that you can get better results in terms of traffic and conversions which means an increased sales funnel.

2. It is Always Open to Customers

You don’t always have to worry about opening hours when you are digitally equipped with an e-commerce website because it is always open for its customers by providing them with products or services at any point of the day. Your main objective should be to build a brand or a concept that people can use easily and also whenever they need it most with the least possible hurdles to face.

Having an online website or online store provides 24/7 access to your products or services around the world so that potential customers can easily purchase your products anytime they want to. This allows businesses to increase their sales funnel by offering products or services at different prices in different time zones. It also increases accessibility which eventually results in an increased revenue.

3. It Helps to Establish and Strengthen Your Brand Identity

An e-commerce website truly lets you establish your own brand identity by merely showcasing your products to be sold. You can do this through any digitized pattern, whether pictures, videos, or text, or maybe through all of it.

The look and feel of all the digital patterns should be consistent with the message you are certainly sending out to attract the respective prospects so that they can stay on your site for longer periods of time.

Basically, e-commerce helps you to establish a brand identity or brand value for yourself on an online platform so that customers can know more about your brand or company’s offerings, products, and services and make it even easier for them to distinguish between different brands present online and purchase the desired product by themselves. This generates greater revenue and drives leads.

4. E-Commerce Website is Comparatively Easier & More Convenient

There’s no hassle or mess while purchasing online because users just need a device like a laptop, tablet, or mobile phone to access your website where they can surely browse products or services and place orders. With good payment options, it takes only seconds to complete the payment process and thus, purchase.

Adding to its advantages, it also provides secure and safe transactions without any spamming or other such things. An e-commerce store always provides ease of access to all your services or product categories providing several other options to choose from while allowing customers to pay conveniently through any of the online payment portals or platforms. This increases customer satisfaction which ultimately helps in growing revenue figures.

5. E-Commerce Offers Better and Digitalized marketing opportunities

An online store always allows digital marketers to create a buzz about their products by including Search engine optimization-friendly keywords, web copy, and images among other tactics which certainly generates greater exposure for the brand’s service or product line(s) helping all the companies to expand their brand and customer reach.

An e-commerce website for your online business is surely not like a regular one that you use to share information or communicate with your regular customers. It’s also an excellent online platform for marketing because it has all the access to information about online visitors or customers which ultimately helps you to promote other related products. This also allows you to increase the brand awareness.

Wrapping Up

So, it is time to go ahead and get an e-commerce website or platform for your online business in order to increase revenue numbers or sales funnel in the long run.

Setting up an e-commerce shop is easy enough for any brand or small business who further wants to expand its sales opportunities. Digital Kangaroos is just the most suitable place that can help you take your business online.

From small business apps to a brand’s personal platform or e-commerce apps, internal employee communication apps, fitness apps, religious apps,...

From small business apps to a brand’s personal platform or e-commerce apps, internal employee communication apps, fitness apps, religious apps, and more—there is an app for anything you can imagine.

Apps can either be developed as an extension of your existing business or they can be used to create any new business or brand from scratch.

Whether you want to develop an app for your business or build the next Zomato or Uber, this guide is for anyone who wants to create a great mobile app.

How to make an app: a step-by-step guide

Mobile app development can definitely be segmented into two categories – development and post-launch.

This guide will help you from start to finish. Meanwhile, you must feel free to click around to the sections that are quite relevant to your needs. Some of you might like to start from scratch, while others might like to edify their knowledge in the process.

The Best Digital Marketing Company in California will help you get thorough with the process.

Given below are 9 easy steps to create a mobile app:

While it is amazing to start building the app right away, there are many steps you need to take before the core process of development begins. These steps are quite critical to the success of your own mobile app, so let us not skip over them.

Step #0 — Starting from an idea for the mobile app

Whatever your idea might be, you must first ensure that your app is really solving a problem of common people. Then you need to make sure that anyone else is not already doing what you have been wanting, in order to avoid copyright issues. If they are, you should have some differentiators that can separate your idea from the upcoming or existing competition.

Step #1 — Define your aims and perspectives

The app development process must always start with clearly defined aims and perspectives.

What are you thinking to set out to achieve? What problems are you preferably trying to solve?

Your goals should ultimately establish every single and your entire mobile app development process. If these are not clearly defined from the beginning to the end, it is easy to get puzzled all the way long.

Step #2 — Conducting required market research

Creating a mobile app without market research can result in a waste of your time, money, and even many important resources.

  • Create all the possible surveys
  • Conduct more and more interviews
  • Run a main focus group that might help
  • Research all about your competition
  • Figure out how to create a mobile app that further improves the customer experience

Step #3 — Deciding features that your mobile app must include

Think about your app’s core purpose and functionality. This is where the features should always be focused.

Lots of people are generally tempted to add some extra and unnecessary features to an app. This makes it irrelevant and some of the features can even take away relevancy from your app’s primary purpose. Each feature should normally be added.

Examples of such popular mobile app features include:

  • Push notifications
  • Questionnaires and surveys
  • Video, image, and audio hubs
  • Community walls
  • GPS capabilities
  • Booking or buying capabilities

Step #4 — Research on existing solutions

The final step that you need to take in the pre-development or development process is researching all the existing solutions. Before you waste your valuable time and resources on figuring out how to build an app and other components from scratch, it is always a great idea to check and see if that solution is already available in the market, and if yes, then in what form.

Step #5 — Working on technical specifications

Take the wireframes that you have already created during the pre-development or development process and use each of them to create a “tech spec.”

These are some of the inner workings behind the scenes of your own mobile app that nobody normally sees. Sometimes, it makes sense to logistically change things around as it will definitely save lots and lots of time and money.

Step #6 — Set overall measurable milestones

Setting up all the measurable milestones will help you keep you and your team on track during the mobile app-making process.

The idea here is to mainly separate your massive development project into all the smaller chunks possible. This will make it easier for you to work on it rather than just observing a large project and worrying about it.

Step #7 — Creating possible minimum viable product (MVP)

As you start building the mobile app, you should always be developing an MVP—minimum viable product. The app idea behind an MVP is that it definitely forces you to think about your app’s most valuable and essential features.

Step #8 — Ensure the quality of your mobile app

Once your MVP is finished, and you have a perfectly working app in your hand now, you need to test it before any sort of deployment procedure.

Your mobile app must be tested on many real-time and actual mobile platforms.

Step #9 — It’s time to deploy

It’s time to let your mobile app reach real-time customers and get live.

Your primary focus right now should be visibility and uptime. Make sure that your mobile application is fully functional and apt for the end user. You definitely don’t want your servers to crash or something more like that.

Post-launch

So, you have now learned how to build an app; that sounds great! However, the mobile app development process is not over yet. Once the app has been deployed, there’s still plenty of work remaining to be done after you have launched.

Make sure that you are ready with all your plans and are working accordingly for the post-launch steps.

  1. Marketing your own mobile app

Your app is quite a business; treat and work on it accordingly. Would you like to launch a new business or brand without any promotion? Obviously not.

You might have the best app on the planet, but your efforts won’t matter at all if nobody or say your own audience doesn’t know about it. Your app must be marketed appropriately to get enough and even great revenue figures.

  1. Do not forget to track KPIs

Is your mobile app successful? The only way to answer this question and more related to it is by establishing and tracking KPIs i.e., key performance indicators.

Your app analytics and the available KPIs need to go beyond your mobile app performance metrics, like speed, visibility, and uptime or more

  1. Try to continuously improve your mobile app

No app is surely perfect. Even the most successful apps in the universe have bugs and are constantly coming up with updates and changes.

The new version releases of your app or the updating aura should now be based on the user’s feedback.

Conclusion

Building mobile apps is surely not easy. Whether it is your first app or you have built multiple mobile apps, there is always room for updates and improvement.

It is a great way to first think, build an idea, and educate yourself about the process, instead of blindly picking a mobile app development company or procedure and just hoping for the best to happen. Digital Kangaroos, a stellar Web Development Company in California provides top-notch services in mobile app development.

In today’s world, a website is as important as setting up an offline business or can be even more important. Website...

In today’s world, a website is as important as setting up an offline business or can be even more important. Website development has been a part of business lifestyles nowadays. To grab the attention of clients, build clientele, generate leads, and boost the sales funnel for your business, it is important to create a website.

While creating a website, there are many viable considerations that one should keep in mind. From selecting a domain and host to coding integrity to UI/UX to graphics to content, it is all-important to take care of and work accordingly.

Website building is no longer a naïve job and if one cannot build a proper website, then the business or client should contact the expert to curb the situation. 10 things that are a must while developing a website are as follows:

Selecting a Domain and Host

It is the most crucial stage of building a website. Before choosing the domain or host, it is important to know the vitality of your business, to know the nature of your business, and to select the website template or host of the domain according to the respective needs.

One needs to take care that the domain name should reflect the brand’s identity and tell exactly what your brand or business is all about.

  • Strategized design of the Website

While choosing the template for a website or setting the coding integrity for the website template, it is important to keep the design simple, secure, and sufficiently appealing for the customer, brands, and businesses.

There should not be large or distracting graphics or unusual images that might create a visual mess for the beholder and disrupt the brand identity, crawling, and more.

To rank better on the SERP or Google index, it is important to keep the content as a priority. Content should always reflect the brand and tell exactly what your business is all about.

One can easily connect the brand to the customers if one is able to create a connection with emotions. It is to take note to create a predictable, firm, and clear content strategy and follow it all throughout the development procedure.

  • Graphic Orientation

Large images and unusual pixelation should not be added to the websites. Graphics are part of the user interface. Large images always disrupt the crawlability and this creates not so good identity for the brand.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a must for any website. It not only helps in indexing your website on Google but also develops the authenticity and elevates the rank of your website. A nicely optimized website helps attract customers and makes it easy for the customers to reach out to your brand.

  • CTA (Call to Action)

No matter what your brand or business is about, it is important to focus on the call to action. It not only adds value to your website but also generates a good range of leads and helps increase the sales funnel.

  • Security of Website

We all are aware of the recently increased cyber attacks and data storage peaking. In such cases, it is important to register and get the SSL certificates for your site. This helps your site to be secure and safe and helps it to get rid of the chances of getting affected by the cyber-attack.

  • Branding

Along with choosing the right domain name, it is vital to choose the right name for your business and create a relevant logo. Branding is a part of communication that directly connects the brand with customers and drives relevant customer traffic.

  • Mobile Web

While creating a website, one must not forget to create a mobile-friendly website. Mobile web users are more in ratio as compared to desktop web users.

Hence, it is more important to create a website that is effective for both mobile and other web users and creates possibilities for reaching every single potential customer.

  • Adding Social Proof

Building a website is not something where the potential stops. Adding social media platforms is also a must-to-know process and a must-to-add website feature. By adding social media, one can reach potential customers and garner good sales. Building a website is the most important part of building a business and creating a brand online. Proper branding can only be done with a good, firm, clear, authentic, safe, and secure website. Hence, one must keep the above-mentioned things in consideration to build an effective website and work on the business to raise it to a brand.

Get a hold of these trending web development trends and turn your digital space faster, interactive, dynamic, and productive!”

Since the lockdown, we have seen a huge peak in the evolution of web development – most individuals are switching from offline practices and are smartly using internet services. You can either call it the demand of time or the way of living as a new norm.

Since the number of internet users will keep on accelerating in the future – developers are working on brand new technologies to resist the downfall.

For a bright future, content creators along with digital marketers and IT companies are following the trends that are eventually seen to be more effective than ever before. Let’s have a look.

Top 10 Web Development Trends

To make the learning process easier and more precise, we have organized an updated and useful list of technologies. With these, your websites can become faster, more interactive, dynamic, and productive. Let us dive deep to learn about the best web trends of 2023

Progressive Web Application

Instead of developing individual applications for respective websites – famous brands, companies, and internet sites have switched to progressive web applications that allow the user to add the website as an application to their device.

The overall experience of the website is similar to the mobile application that allows visitors to display the website best compatible with their mobile phone screens as well.

Famous websites such as Pinterest, Twitter, Alibaba, and Forbes have been using PWA trends and leaving magnificent effects on the audience.

Animated User Interface

In the era where web designing companies are highly focused on improving the user interface; motion technologies are the next attention seekers. The technology offers eye-catching animations and digital art that gives illusions of objects in motion. 

Usually, multimedia is included by using JavaScript and high-end technologies that increase the engagement of the visitors. Such relatable animations enhance the complete outlook of the web pages and add grace to the existing site.

Eventually, the SEO rating can be improved with the Motion UI interface as it provides fun and extra beauty to a webpage. The users usually don’t get bored when they browse such websites.

Chatbot Support Services

You must have seen a chat box at the bottom right side or top right on most web pages that pops up just like when you receive a text on your mobile phone.

An organization having reliable, direct, and quick customer support is more likely to be preferred by users than a firm with a slow help desk response. 

Chatbots are a great step forward to boost your business. In emergency cases, we can contact real human clients to ask queries and provide further contact details.

Responsive Websites

It is a fact that people use the internet a lot more on their mobile phones than on other devices such as personal computers, tablets, etc. Thus, web developers have come to a point where they must work on an interface that fits best for a mobile user. 

Mobile-friendly websites are flexible and perform better – and therefore should be properly taken care of from the Search Engine Optimization perspective as well.

Cloud Computing

Even though cloud computing has served users for many years, people still do not have the actual idea of how best they can make use of cloud networks. 

Web development is under the great influence of data storage and access from cloud networks. Now, when most people are working remotely – the advantages of cloud computing are highly visible in 2023.

Accelerated Mobile Web Pages (AWP)

Google developed a library namely Accelerated Web Pages or AMP for webpages that allows developers to make lightweight, smooth, and faster websites. The main advantage of AMP is to lower the bounce rate and enhance the user-interface experience.

Since the webpages with the AMP framework take less time to load – it helps in growing the organic audience that attracts repeated as well as new visitors. Mainly Javascript is the primary technology that smoothens the web service and polishes the page performance.

Websites with Accelerated Mobile Web pages are more likely to be ranked well than sites that do not utilize the bliss provided by Google.

Voice Search

Virtual audio assistants such as Amazon Alexa and Google audio searches are already making our lives a lot easier. Now, look at the next level approaches that help people of all age groups utilize internet services just by speaking the RIGHT words. 

Voice search and smart speakers can take both web development and e-commerce markets to newer heights.

Dark Mode On

When a user lands on a webpage – your main motive must be to keep the reader stuck to the page. When the website is more about informative content – make sure to make the webpage interactive and captivating.

With Dark mode or white/ black trends, a user can switch the background colour or lights as per his needs. It provides a more customized and personal feel to the user.

Augmented Reality

With AI and IoT stepping inside the world of the internet – Augmented reality is a more advanced approach to utilize the technology at its best. It provides the user with an atmosphere that looks similar to the real one.

Many websites include AR on their landing page which gives the user an experience of the real-time presence of individuals. An organization that is tied up with augmented or virtual reality will grow more rapidly in upcoming times. 

Blockchain rules

People are moving more into investing in bitcoins or crypto-currency and hence blockchain technology goes side by side. With blockchain, a user who is into mining can ensure the transaction of digital money more securely. 

Each transaction is encrypted with unique keys and the sender’s digital signatures that make the network safe and trustworthy. Cybersecurity is another digital trend that goes well with crypto transactions and positively influences the web.

The Bottom Line

We have studied the various web development trends that can take the overall internet and customer experiences to a much better level. One must build up and invest in such programming skills and required proficiency.

Online sales platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart, eBay, etc. can indeed turn out to be great sales channels, but these channels come with a lot of limitations and restrictions.”

Going online is no big feat these days. Most of the small entrepreneurs choose to opt to sell on an e-retail giant rather than having their own website. Having a great online presence is a must in today’s scenario and things have geared up even more after the COVID-19 scenario.

Whether you choose to sell on a marketplace or your own website, each side has its own pros and cons. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy. Businesses who really want to grab a lion’s share on an online platform or are truly serious about expanding their business online should consider having their own website for sure.

 Yes, online sales platforms such as Amazon, Flipkart, and eBay can indeed turn out to be great sales channels, but these channels come with a lot of limitations. The general public has started to look beyond these options and even likes to purchase directly from the seller rather than the middleman.

Starting an online business can be intimidating but it’s worth spending your time, money, and resources on it. Have a look at how having your own eCommerce website is advantageous.

Personalized Communication

When you market your product across big retail giants or a global marketplace, there are thousands of similar brands competing for visibility on the same platform/s. The main advantage of having your own e-commerce website is that you can market your products directly to the customers.

People come to your website as they want to know more about you. Here, you have their email addresses and contact numbers. You can personalize their shopping experience by offering discounts, new launch offers, and other promotions.

Your Brand, Your Rules!

When a customer orders your product from the global marketplace, it reaches him with branding done by the marketplace.  Your brand gets minimal promotion or visibility. This, indeed, makes your brand weak.

Branding is of prime importance when you strive to build a brand both online and offline. Connect with a good e-commerce development agency near you and start your own brand that rules!

Your strategy, your branding, and your Profit!

Customer Loyalty and Retention

The lack of loyalty and presence of several competitors on a global E-commerce platform makes you hardly get a repeat customer. When you are selling from your own e-commerce platform, you can connect with the audience in a better way.

A more personal connection between you and the customer can be established as they get multiple ways to connect with you. Reach out to the best web development company in Ludhiana to know more about the nitty-gritty of the e-commerce business.

Run Creative Marketing Campaigns

Having your own website doesn’t mean that your audience would be coming flocking to you. You will have to fight tooth and nail to get shoppers to your website. You will need the right mix of SEO and other digital marketing strategies to build a strong online presence.

Work with the best e-commerce development company in Ludhiana to brainstorm some creative campaigns and discover what works best for you. You will be able to understand your audience in the best way through analytics and mould your strategies in a way that best works for your brand.

Use this data from the analytics to grow and reach your audience in a better way.

Cut the Middleman, 100% of sales revenue

With your own E-commerce website, you have complete business autonomy.

Working with a marketplace means paying fees, warehouse charges, seller rights, and transactional costs. The entire cost is to be borne by the seller. Amidst these complexities, the share of your profit is meager and the ROI is very low.

By having your own website, you are selling directly to your customers, and that too, with your own branding. This ensures faster query resolution. Apart from that, you can easily integrate the selling experience with social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, etc.
