Does your website have low traffic? Are you curious about WHY others have thousands or hundred thousands of visitors? There are in fact, a few effective ways which can promote your business websites and increase traffic.
1) Social Media
Do you have any social media account or fan page such as Facebook? If your answer is NO, this is one of the reasons your website is not getting enough traffic.
Start promoting your website with FREE media channel such as Facebook to save your company plenty of financial resources.
You are able to see the powerful effects on your business once you have a Facebook fan page for your business. Facebook can help to attract thousands of visitors or more to view your website. Benefit from the power of Facebook. Use it to boost your website traffic and generate profits FOC, by promoting your company products and services! Remember to include a link which will bring your fan page followers to your website.
2) Direct Mail
Some might still be under the impression that sending emails to customers from time to time is unnecessary as many fear that customers would consider the emails as SPAM. The truth is emails can help your business greatly if used correctly.
You can use direct email to keep reminding your customers of your existence. One way of achieving this is to send greeting emails to them from time to time especially during festive seasons.
Besides, you can collect your prospects’ email addresses by offering them free gifts. With more and more customer email addresses in your database, you can inform them of your promos and let them click on the link provided in the email before directing them to your websites.
3) Guerilla Marketing
Using an attractive way to promote your company website or brand name, guerilla marketing is a good method to increase the traffic of your company webpage. It will make people remember your brand name easily and people may start to surf your company website and increase traffic.
You can start the first step by designing creative and special business cards. Most of the business cards are in rectangle shape with a name and contact number. Think out of the box! Create something different to attract customer attention.
This is another way to drive traffic to your website. You can distribute free gifts or coupons to customers and require them to first visit your website and key in their contact info (such as email addresses) before redemption. This will help in boosting your web traffic as well.
Coupons if used correctly can help your business to build a good relationship with the customers and gain their trust at the same time. Once they have experienced your good products and services, they will definitely come back.

What is cloud computing? The word “cloud” can be explained as a set of different types of hardware and software that works collectively to deliver different aspects of computing to the end-user as an online service. Cloud Computing is the latest computing technology, in which computing resources are shared instead of having their own personal devices or servers to run the application or software. On top of that, cloud computing is also often referred to as “a type of internet based computing”. One of the examples of cloud computing is Gmail; you can access your Gmail account on any online device.
BENEFITS OF CLOUD COMPUTING
Why have so many businessmen decided to go Cloud nowadays? Clearly, cloud computing has a lot to offer compared to traditional web hosting.
1.) Get latest software updates
Software vendors can update software or applications through the cloud; they can have several updates in a year without charging their customers.
2.)Improved information security
According to research, cloud computing is more secure as cloud solution security is based on ISO security standards. Every cloud provider must follow the ISO standard in addition to the regular security audits and protect their customers’ data security.
3) Save Cost
Cloud computing is a type of pay as you go service. You do not need to purchase a server and own it. All you need to pay is a small amount of money for your service provider.
4) Easier collaboration
Since cloud computing is online based, it is easy to collaborate with your staff stationed in different locations even if they are from several different countries.
We’re not sure about you, but at Exabytes, we like to stay fit and healthy! That’s why, last weekend we joined the big crowd of 27,000 people for a marathon (okay, more like support the marathon) along the Penang Bridge as volunteers to give out drinks and cheering for the runners at Water Station 10!
The marathon started at 1AM where we gave out 3000 bottles of 500ml mineral water, 300 bottles of 1500ml 100 Plus and 6000 empty cups to serve over 27,000 of them. The task of pouring drinks into cups and arranging them on the tables seemed easy, but it was more daunting than we had thought. It required us to be super fast, that’s why we had to split the tasks and each person was assigned unique jobs such as, opening the mineral water bottle, pouring water into cup, handing over bottle or cups for runners when they pass by, as well as cheering them up when they pass by our water station.
We had also prepared some musical instruments to cheer up our runners and ourselves, including portable speakers, empty 100 plus bottles, whistles, some mini bells, etc.
Unlike last year, the weather was chilly as it was drizzling that day, but that didn’t stop the runners to finish what they came for and definitely didn’t stop us Exabees to cheer the runners on. Lucky thing we had our rain coats to protect us from getting wet!
Just like last year, this year too, we spotted a few runners in cute costumes! The best thing about them is, they still managed to finish the run even with their costume on! How cool is that? Some of the runners were also very polite, thanking us for the water given out and even throwing them in the bin when they were done.
The marathon ended at about 3.30AM and although we were very tired from the cheering and hardwork put to keep the runners going, we were very happy and satisfied to have been there to support the cause. Until next time!

The trip was truly a real eye-opener for us, as we learnt and witnessed a lot of amazing things while we were there. Let’s find out what went down in Game Jam Japan. Yoshi! Ikuzo!

Some participants shared about the research and preparation they have done for the Game Jam.
It’s time to kick-off and start the game development!
As the game development process requires participants to highly concentrate, so we left the venue to avoid interruption and returned on the next day before the end of the development period.
When we came back, all the participants rallied for the final sprint.
The TV shows the live tweets about the Game Jam.
This Oculus Rift device is a virtual reality head-mounted device, allowing the users to feel and experience like they are in the game. Each team was allocated with a device and they used this device to develop and also integrate into their games.
Some of them even integrated XBOX motion sensor into their game.
The clock is ticking and some of the participants look tired after more than 30 hours working on their games.
Yet they still fight till the end to optimize their works.
Time’s up! The emcee from Unity Technologies announces that the development time is over and put on his costume…
… and turn into a Mexican wrestler?? LOL.
Each team start presenting their works which they have put in real hard effort for 2 days.
After the presentation, it’s party time! Everybody celebrate their success with pizzas, drinks, beers and enjoyed the games of the other teams.
Exabytes members also have fun playing their creative masterpieces.

Does your website have a good design to compete with your competitors? Having a simple but useful feature can allow you to have high traffic on your website.
1) Image size
Images can help to increase your credibility. Make sure the photos you upload have the right size. If you choose to upload smaller images, it may affect how your customers see your products from their perspectives. If the images you upload are too large, it will not fit nicely onto your website. So think twice before making a decision on your image size. Try to go for neutral size.
Logo is an important feature on your website. It represents your company and may affect your company’s reputation if the design is not rightly done. Create a high resolution logo design and place it on upper left corner of each web pages. In this way, it is easier for visitors to click on your company logo and link back to the home page.
Do not put “Rainbow” colors on your website. Try to choose and use neutral colors for your website as it makes your webpage look clean. Remember to use the colors that match your content or the text on your website.
Choose the font size which is easy to read by your visitors. Do not apply “ITALIC” on the whole page of content. Highlight those important words or features you wish your visitors to notice. The easier the words can be read, the higher chances your visitors will return.
