This is the world of Internet and fortunately we are a part of it. We cannot live without Internet today as it has gotten into our lives so much. It has dug deep into our daily routines; it is now a part of our lifestyle and with the facility of Internet on mobile phones, its usage has seen a huge leap in the past few years. The entire idea of designing a Mobile Website came into picture after the usage of mobile phones increased. Businesses and manufacturers found it the best way to reach their target audience, owing to the fact that cell phones are now in every pocket. Hence, the practice of Creating Mobile Sites began there and then.

New Generation phones like iPhone and Blackberry brought a revolution in the mobile industry. Now, one could read and send e-mails with these kinds of Smart Phones. Slowly and steadily, Internet fixed its place in mobile phones and many websites created a version of their website compatible with mobile phones, i.e. a Mobile Website.

And, here we are using the same technology at our comfort as every web page is just a click away. Since the concept of Creating Mobile Sites has started, its popularity and usage has reached new heights. Simultaneously, there has been a considerable increase in local search activity, hence enabling businesses to get maximum visibility and exposure so as to make profit.

WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or Custom Website

New clients usually contact me and ask me, “Should I have WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or a custom website for my business?” Even though the answer to this question includes many factors, I walk them through ten major disadvantages of using the Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress, Joomla and Drupal, so that they can make a right decision. Because of its importance and our expertise in custom application developments, I am inspired to write this article. For the sake of simplicity, I refer to WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal as CMS in the rest of this article:

I. Bugs And Errors

It is common to experience bugs and errors due to two reasons:

1. The CMS software engine updates at a higher frequency relative to other CMS plug-ins and libraries which causes website glitches.

2. Sometimes a new version of one CMS plug-in does not work properly with another plug-in or library which results in the website malfunctioning.

II. Pain Of Maintenances

As I had mentioned, you need to watch for all of the software patches or updates, and check them against all of the plug-ins or libraries used in your website. The CMS ideas were meant for dynamic contents, like bloggers or news companies, rather than basic static websites with static contents. As a result, it is not a cost-effective choice for static-based websites.

III. Differentiation Matters

Company branding and identity development starts from a company website and/or a mobile App. No matter what marketing budgets you have, customers associate your website with your products or services and, of course, your brand. It takes five-ten seconds after the first visit to a website to understand the company image and identity. The essence of differentiation is to stand your website out from the competitors while creating a sense of uniqueness for what they get. Indeed, it is only when your special organic contents are accompanied by a professional custom-made website that you gain competitive advantage over the other competitors.

IV. Security Is Missing

I personally do not regard CMS developers as programmers, since a high school student can publish a website in a few hours after watching a few tutorial videos. Unfortunately, the majority of the websites developed via CMS are done by people who have a little (if any) background in programming. The websites built by CMS do not come with pre-built security protection options, nor do novice developers can protect your CMS website against the common spammer, “Spider,” and/or hacker attacks. I have seen many CMS websites and login systems with no password encryptions for their users. It means that if someone accesses their database, all of the user accounts will be compromised. In fact, recent studies have shown that people have a tendency to use one username and password for all of their online accounts.

V. Poor E-Commerce Support

Due to a lack of customizations and poor securities, it is not advisable to utilize CMS for your e-commerce and business transactions. Also, all of the e-commerce built-in plug-ins come with lots of unnecessary tools and poor database designs, both of which can impede your business productivity down the road.

VI. High Switching Costs

Most of the business owners do not know what is going to happen if one day they decided to migrate from a CMS website to a new one. Here are four things you will experience:

1. High cost of expert staffs for moving CMS contents to the new sites.

2. Website disorientations especially for the dynamic CMS pages.

3. SEO disorientations since most of the CMS-based indexed pages will no longer be available in search results.

4. Database nightmare as CMS databases are not normalized for scalability.

VII. Lack of Control

Building your website through CMS is to live at the mercy of lots of plug-ins and libraries in which you have no control. There are three consequences behind this:

1. As always, you get what you paid for, as though some paid CMS themes or plug-ins providers would poorly (up to three weeks) respond to your support requests without any liability for your business losses.

2. To keep your website up and running, you need to follow other third-parties developers even for minor patches or updates which can be very labor-intensive.

3. Sometimes one library depends on other sub-plug-ins or external sources to perform properly which is simply a nightmare for maintenance teams.


I have hard time understanding why a basic five page website for an accountant or an attorney needs to be done in CMS using PHP rather than the lovely HTML programming language. An HTML website has four advantages over a PHP one:

1. Ease of maintenances

2. Low cost of maintenances relative to PHP.

3. Ease of migration from one server to another

4. Faster server response times and better customer experiences.

IX. Mobile App Are Coming

Not only do most CMS developers not have experience in mobile App developments, but also do they barely know how to integrate a website with a mobile. Since the CMS is just catching up for patches for web-mobile integrations, it is better to consider this factor too.

You might wonder why the CMS is very popular and more websites adopt it on a daily basis in spite of all of the mentioned disadvantages. It stems from three reasons:

1. They are followers and follow what the others are doing without any foresights

2. They usually have tight budgets, like entrepreneurs or start-ups

3. They are not aware of discussed disadvantages.

No matter what has driven your business to a CMS-based website, it is never late to mend your online business model and strategy to streamline both website viewers and Smartphone holder experiences. I hope these discussed factors will shed enough lights on the main cons of CMS and guide you through a right decision.

Mobile App Vs Mobile Website Vs Responsive Website

Each minute the Internet evolves at lightning speed, and that can be intimidating for small business owners to keep up. For most small business owners, worrying about technological leaps and trends is the least of concerns. Instead, they focus on a traditional approach that has worked thus far.

Although, a traditional outlook makes sense to some degree, mobile marketing is here to stay and slated to grow at a pace that can be daunting for smaller businesses. The only option out of this dilemma is to ramp up online presence to suit the ecosystem. As to the question of ‘how’ – the answer lies between technology of responsive websites, mobile websites and mobile applications.

Responsive Website

A responsive website uses a CSS style sheet that allows the website to look great on any device, whether it is a PC, phone or tablet of different screen sizes, the website will render perfectly. It is usually not a separate website, just a design that works for all screen sizes allowing mobile visitors to access website content optimized for smaller screens.

Mobile Website

A mobile website uses more contemporary front-end technologies like HTML5 or WebKit features without the need for backward compatibility with older browsers. A Mwebsite can be considerably inexpensive than a responsive design that requires a complex rebuild of everything, enabling enhanced user experience at much lower maintenance costs.

Mobile Apps

An app is usually designed to achieve a very precise objective. Whether it is a game or a banking app, or an app to find vegetarian restaurants in a city, they are designed to be interactive and task oriented with allowance for purchases to be made within the app. They aren’t necessary for some businesses, however, can be of great benefit for most.

Responsive Website vs. Mobile Website

Responsive websites cannot be created by simply rearranging the existing elements, especially from complex structures of full websites. Responsive design is much more expensive, it usually requires a complete overhaul of the existing website from the ground up, keeping in mind that attention to user experience is paramount.

On the other hand, if your goals are primarily oriented towards marketing and communications, a Mwebsite makes a practical first step in your mobile strategy as mobile websites have a few inherent benefits over responsive websites, including compatibility and cost-effectiveness.

MWebsites vs. Mobile Apps

Between the choice of mobile website and mobile app, the most appropriate choice depends on your end goals. Logically, it rarely makes sense to launch an app without having a Mwebsite in place. If your goal is offering mobile-friendly content to a wider audience, then a Mwebsite suits the purpose. Whereas, apps are useful when tackling a very specific purpose that cannot be effectively accomplished via a web browser.

Responsive Websites vs. Mobile Apps

this is where it gets tricky. Between the two, you should do both – if you can. In the interest of budgets, many small businesses end up choosing between the two. However, the available modern day tools remove that variable from the equation effectively.

While a responsive website will feature everything with ease of access, the mobile app may have a more specific task to accomplish, and will interact with users in a personalized way that a website just cannot hope to achieve.

For many businesses, harnessing a two-pronged mobile strategy that leverages both mobile site and app for maximum distribution of content is necessary. While the choice between a responsive website and a mobile website can be debated, mobile apps win emphatically over both. Well-designed mobile websites can be an asset for a business, but it still cannot achieve what mobile apps can, especially when it comes to gathering user information. Selecting one over the other should be the last resort, if at all, especially for a business that wishes to survive and thrive in the digital age.

Website 101 – Getting Started With Twitter

Sign up to post in the forum. It’s Free.


Or Log in.


 Your Twitter profile page will become your home page on Twitter. Done properly this can be a boost to your other web activities and online presence in general. 

Firstly, don’t just rush in and create a profile, which Twitter makes so easy, only to find that you have to start again down the line because you have missed some vital points.

Before you start, make sure you understand how your choices for Username and other details of your profile, will affect the impact of your profile page.

Your profile page will have:

Areas Twitter Controls:

Header area
Tweet area
Bio area

Areas You Control:

 Background image  (large image)
Profile image (small image like a photo of you or your company/enterprise  logo)

Areas with text you have some control over:

Username – displayed by Twitter but must be selected carefully (see below)
Tweet content 
Bio content details

See below for a link to a diagram of the above areas. 

Things to take note of include:

Background Image

Your background image needs to be specially designed to ensure the best impact possible. It has to either repeat or be designed to fit the left and right narrow columns. The background color should also match your brand colors. (There are a number of templates available on the web for Twitter profile pages. They are usually in Photoshop format. Google this phrase “Twitter Profile page template’ as a starting point.
Don’t forget screen resolution is a factor! My advice is to keep the image as simple as possible because the image is not like a HTML web page. This will affect your profile page by not producing a consistent spacing and format when viewing screen resolution changes. Make sure that you test a sample image on various common resolutions (especially the common ones – 1024X786, 1280×720 or 1280×768)

Logo Picture

Your logo can be loaded as the profile image even though this is pretty small
The most visible text will be your Username – so this is an important word. See below for tips about selection of username.

Signing up

Signing up is quick and painless. The first 2 selections you must make are your Name and Username. Make sure that you choose these to reflect your business, venture or whatever you are looking to publicize.

Remember that your username will become a permanent part of your persona on the web. So choose well. Current Twitter username rules are a bit tricky.

1) Pick a Good Full Name

This name will appear on your profile page and you can use quite along name with various punctuation elements.

2) Pick a Good Username

i)  Username cannot be longer than 15 characters

ii)  You have to use an underscore to separate words

iii)  No dashes or spaces are allowed. (Also brackets and full stops)

If your company is ABC Fishing Equipment then a good place to start would be: twitter.com/ABC_Fishing or even twitter.com/ABC_Fishing _Equ

Despite the best practice advice to always use dashes as a separator when working on the web, in Twitters case you have to use the underscore.

3) Your Bio

This is really important and you have to have your say in 160 characters. Best practice would be to design and layout your words in a word processor first. This will ensure that your spelling is correct and force you spend a few minutes thinking about what your bio needs to say.

4) Your Home Page Link

Unfortunately this will be given a NoFollow status by Twitter and thus will bring no real SEO inbound link value. However it can still be read and used by human visitors to your Twitter profile page, so make sure you get the link right by cutting and pasting it into a browser address bar to ensure it goes to your site.

5) Using Your Twitter Link

You can now start using your Twitter link on your website and in other places. Place a call to action prompt on your home page to say something like “Follow us on Twitter”.

Next step is to learn how to Tweet!
