I recently revisited the site I created for the coupon advertising magazine I own and much to my surprise discovered a comment. Each of the coupons in my magazine Freebees have their own page, with their own comments. I find it boggling that someone interested in purchasing a musical instrument, would search for a local business – find the Freebees website, and then leave a message there!
This speaks volumes for the need for a well designed company website. More and more users opt to preview their shopping list online before heading out and spending time and gasoline to shop around and business without websites are losing business daily. Even traditional brick-and-mortar businesses like music shops need a basic website. They need not spend thousands of dollars putting their entire inventory online, but even just the most basic of sites would ensure that potential leads are not wasted.
Freebees is a bimonthly coupon publication, distrubuted on the top of Papa John’s Pizza boxes. Freebees offers coverage across Brevard County, FL including the Suntree/Viera, Melbourne and Palm Bay areas. For more information please call (321) 225-1937.
Unless you have been under a rock for the last few years, you are aware of all the exploits and hacks that IE6 is susceptible to. Its shoddy engine has been the bane of web designers for years. The number of css hacks that have arisen because of this particular version of Internet Explorer are innumerable. Countless IE-only style sheets have been created to deal with this application’s quirks and foibles.
Even today IE6 is still in use by many computers. Help spread the word that IE6 is terrible and point ignorant users in the right direction. This isn’t a “spread firefox” campaign, at this point the web would prefer that users pick any new browser over the outdated IE6.
Visit the website for copy and paste code that you can use to alert users of IE6 that its time for them to join the rest of the web and upgrade their browsing experience.
I’m proud to announce my latest project, a coupon magazine named Freebees. In light of the hard time everyone is having economically, coupon usage is on the rise as more people try to stretch that dollar. Locally there was a need for a decent coupon magazine. The concept behind Freebees is simple. Fill the magazine with free stuff. Make it dirt cheap to buy a page, but make the client offer a decent coupon. The result? A book of great deals and savings that couponers will actually use. None of those lame “5% off” coupons here.
I felt the coupon cover should get your attention and make it very clear what is inside. A good amount of time was spent creating the Freebees mascot / logo. The intent was to create a jovial looking little bee. Ultimately, I like the resulting bee character – even if he does look overly enthusiastic about some coupons.
This bimonthly publication distributes 10,000 issues by collaborating with Papa John’s to include the magazine on the tops of pizza boxes and other traditional distribution methods. Its a tiny little thing too – about the size of an Iphone. See it for yourself.
