Find out about the secrets of the Wipple plan. 

All Ages are Learning How to Use Personal Electronic

Whether educators want students to have electronics in the classroom is basically irrelevant. A lot of high schoolers and even younger are hauling around smart phones as well as iPads, Kindles, Nooks, laptops and more.

Most professionals embrace all the opportunities these devices provide.

There are, of course, reasons to be concerned about a classroom full of teenagers online. The distractions can be enormous. However, there are several reasons to embrace the technology in class.

Students need to learn to utilize the technology that exists today so that they will be able to comfortably incorporate it in their careers.

Using technology in the classroom also gives educators an opportunity to show the depth of quality things which can be found online. Students can discover learning opportunities rather than just social media opportunities. This also allows educators to teach which sites are more reliable than other sites.

Educators can show them how to find things such as:

  • Shakespeare__Cobbe_portraitApps to help interpret Shakespeare
  • Apps that help students balance chemical equations
  • Apps that walk the learner through mixing paint or preparing a piece to be fired in the kiln.

Whether there is technology in the classrooms or not, this generation is always going to be digital citizens for the rest of their lies. They need to learn to be responsible in their choices.

At Wipple we strive to make your site one that students as well as adults can trust. Call Wipple today 360-901-1684 or go here to get answer to questions about updating your site or building you a site.


Online Salesmanship. Call Wipple for Internet Marketing Ideas

When you are writing copy for your website make sure that there is a sense of urgency. You want your visitors to buy now.

Some suggestion would include:

  •  Offering a limited-time price discount where visitors must buy before a certain date in order to qualify.
  • Give bonuses or something free if visitors buy within a certain time frame.
  • Offer only a limited quantity of your products or services.

Don’t start your sales pitch too early on your webpage. People normally browse the web looking for information. Give information and make sure you have something of interest before starting your sales pitch. You don’t want to mention purchasing or spending money until after the online visitor knows enough about you to trust you and is interested in your product.

Don’t forget to add great images to your website. Most successful pages have images placed at the top of the page.

Very few people that come to your website are going to read every word on the page. Especially since most websites are much like boring brochures. That is why you need to grab the attention of those who are “scanning” the page.

This is why you need to highlight key points. You can do this in the following manner:

  • Use bold letters and some highlighting for emphasize
  • Vary the length of paragraphs.
  • Add sub-headings
  • Use bullet point lists
  • Leave the right-hand side of your text ragged
  • Give the potential buyers the information they need to make a decision

Best Foot Forward for Your Website

When a visitor lands on your website you want to have copy that is credible. Visitors should immediately develop a trust in you and your product.

footpringThere are numerous way you can effectively “put your best foot forward.”

One of the best ways to establish your credibility is to include customer testimonials on your website.  These should be genuine emails or letters from real customers. The more detailed the customer’s testimonial is the better.

Another way to develop and improve your credibility is by adding a section which tells about you and your credentials. This should include experience and any background information which supports your ability to provide exactly what these customers will want.

Your aim should be to effectively convince readers that YOU are the best person to offer them exactly what you they were looking for.


Making the Most of Your Website With Wipple

At Wipple we help a lot of companies sale their services online. This experience has taught us that some websites work better than others.

One trend we have noticed is that websites that are selling too many products or services on their home page don’t do as well. We’ve found that offering fewer products in one place with a little more copy describing these products translates into higher sales.

If your website can focus you’re more likely to sale. Let us give you an example. A flooring store offered a great warehouse with thousands and thousands of cubic feet of carpet, tile and laminate. The website had pictures of many of the options. The owners also had several interior decorators who were happy to consult in individual homes.

The company improved their sales immediately by having two websites. One site that appealed to individuals who wanted to see samples in their home. The other website was designed to appeal to people who wanted to shop in the warehouse.

It’s all about focus. Instead of trying to please everyone, target a specific group.

Buying products and services is mentally taxing.  When you have an exhaustive product list, your prospective clients have to go through the mental exercise over and over again. That’s a lot of work. Psychologists call it “choice overload.”

Contact us at Wipple. 360-901-1684. We can help you focus on the customers you want to appeal to the most.

Transactions Continue to Move Toward the Internet–Be There for Your Customers

NFC-LogoYou can now pay for your sandwich and other items with your cell phone through a process called NFC or near-field communication. This technology allows two devices placed within a few centimeters of each other to exchange data. For this process to work, both devices must be equipped with an NFC chip.

This can be done when a powered device such as a phone, credit card reader or commuter card terminal reads and then writes to an NFC chip. When you tap your commuter card on the terminal, the NFC-powered terminal subtracts money.

In a two-way communication of NFC both devices can read and write to each other. This happens when you can touch two devices together to transfer data like contacts, links or photos.

So many more of our transactions are occurring online. This will continue. This is why you need to have your business in the computer age.

It is very possible that phones will eventually replace wallets. Some retailers such as Target, Macys and Walgreens already have NFC-based contactless pay terminals in place. Phones which are compatible with Google Wallet can use these terminals.

You launch the payment application on your phone and then tap on the credit card terminal and a connection is made using NFC. At this point, you may be asked to scan your finger or enter a pass code to approve the transaction.

To make sure those who are excited about online payments as well as searching for businesses online can find your business. Call Wipple 360-901-1684 today.

Wipple is the Kind of Web Design and Internet Marketing You Need

Some people have too much time on their hands. Let’s take for example those who have taken the time to produce fake ads which will insure the destruction of the new IPhone.

The apparently photoshopped ad reads in part:

Introducing the Next big Thing . . .

. . . contains new drivers that interface with your device’s radio-baseband allowing it to synchronize with microwave frequencies and use them to recharge your battery.

60 seconds a 700W or 70 seconds at 800W. Do not Wave-charge for over 300 seconds.

IT’S FAKE.  You can’t microwave your microwave. Don’t fall for everything online.

Here’s another story that has nothing to do with electronics but was called into question as not believable.

In Tampa, Florida a 21-year-old woman said she had surgery to have a third breast implanted. Her goal was to have a reality TV show on a major cable channel. She tweeted videos and pictures of her new body.

The massage therapist claims to have had a third breast implanted right in between her existing breast.

At Wipple we want you to know that you can call and speak with us and we will tell you the truth. You need the truth about your website, how this website affects your business and what you can change to improve your business.

Take Care of Yourself. Take Care of Your Business

If you spend much time on a computer you need to take care of yourself.

Follow the 20-20-20 rule. Every 20 minutes of staring at the computer screen, you should look at something that is 20 feet away. Look at this object for at least 20 seconds. This will help you avoid eye strain.

Here’s another suggestion that really isn’t about taking care of yourself, but was something that is often helpful when you are spending time on Youtube.

If you want to move frame by frame, pause the video and then us the “J” or “l” keys to go backward or forward. This should make your Youtube video watching sessions even longer. And you can really inspect that cat video.

One more suggestion. If you want potential customers to find your website online, get hold of Wipple. They can bring people to your site which will bring people to purchase your products. It’s that simple. Call today 360-901-1684.
