Reevaluating The Widget
Widgets are fun. Period.
From then to the present, I have added informative, useful, adaptable and a host of other really nice adjectives to one of my favorite parts of Web 2.0- widgets. There is simply nothing that cannot be done with the right widget in hand or rather, on your site.
One of my favorite widget-loving blogs, Snipperoo has this really great post about some common misconceptions about widgets.
I don’t need to be a website design professional to add rich media applications like widgets and neither do I need to be a whiz at web development to implement them. All I need to do is customize a widget of my choice and voila, I have something on my blog or website that will not only add value to user-experience but to my business/service as well!
For instance, we decided to add this snazzy corkboard widget from Rock You! on one of our blogs. A couple of photos, sticky notes and funny graphics was all it took to give readers on this business blog a glimpse of the online shopping portal attached to the website it was talking about.
The returns and site visits it helped bring in- in terms of Dubai internet marketing was immediately noticeable.
Cosmos Star Consultants stuck to a minimalistic blog, with the focus on content (as any good blog ought to do). The various widgets added in were more than just icing on the cake- they had a purpose, viz. promoting the products and services.
Smart web marketing service, what say?
