I spent several months looking for the right web design company to assist us with our web site. One of the key features I was looking for was the companies ability to work with me on the design and implementation as I would be managing the site on a day to day basis. Open Global were the only company that really understood what I was trying to achieve and worked with me to achieve my goals (and still do!)

Communication with me along every step has been excellent and every time I have had a query or issue it has been dealt with both quickly and professionally. I am very happy with the way out website has turned out and would quickly recommend Open Global to any of my clients in future.

How to budget for an e-commerce website

There are an endless series of factors which can affect how much an website will cost when it comes to selling online. An article like this can't possibly do the subject justice.

But there are a few basic principles which you should address in your budgeting regardless of your functional requirements.


3 cheating ways to get on the first page of Google

The title of this article is possibly misleading, because the 3 methods I'll be discussing aren't "cheats" in the sense that they're dishonest, or "black hat SEO". They are cheats because they are not the normal ways that you tend to try to get a first page ranking.

Let me just be clear, these are all legitimate techniques, recommended by Google.


Should you use WordPress?

WordPress is probably the best known content management system. It's very easy to use, there are lots of plugins for it and there are a lot of web designers who use it exclusively for all of their clients.

So is it the best system to use?


The Data Protection Act and friend-finder tools

This is quite a brief article to just point out something that a lot of people haven't realised about the Data Protection Act (DPA).

Hopefully we all know that the main principle behind the DPA is that you can't divulge someone's personal information or contact details to a third party without their consent.


Is Joomla the best content management system?

OpenGlobal E-commerce has experience with a wide range of content management systems (CMS), but Joomla tends to be our default one. So, out of all of the CMSes available, does this mean we think that it's the best one?
