Copywriting

Website Copywriting A good copywriter knows which words trigger the feelings that compel people to make decisions. They write with flair, making it easy for people to be drawn into what they are saying about your business, services or products. Read an an example of good copywriting for a fictitious Sydney Mercedes Dealer, or just "ok" website copy for a Used Mercedes dealer.

Trademarks

Trademark Registration The most effective way to safeguard you against people "trading off" your business name, product or service, is to register a trademark. For more information, including about the justweb® trade mark, please read our trademark registration article.

9. Camino | 72 | 0.04%
10. Playstation 3 | 19 | 0.01%

Comment: Internet Explorer is still winning the browser "war", however it has lost ground to Firefox, as well as the Mac OS browsers as Mac becomes more popular.

Top Ten Operating Systems


Operating System | Visits | % of visits

1. Windows | 150,184 | 92.36%

9. Playstation3 | 19 | 0.01%
10. SunOS | 19 | 0.01%

Comment: Again, Macs are increasing in popularity. Perhaps driven much by the less than competent Vista OS, as well as by a strong and steady marketing campaign. iPhone now makes an appearance, albeit a minor one.

10. Safari / Windows | 267 | 0.16%

Comment: Macintosh is gaining ground here too of course, and Google's new browser "Chrome" now shows up in stats.

29. 800x480 | 59 | 0.04%
30. 1152x870 | 54 | 0.03%

Comment: Even though the old 800x600 makes up a mere 3.49% of traffic, it is still worth noting this represents over five and a half thousand visits to our site. Certainly not a user base we should ignore - but we have. The stats for 2009 will show an even greater decline in this out of date screen resolution. It is also noteworthy the prevalence of widescreen monitors.

Comment: It would be fair to assume that the majority of "Unknown" connections types are broadband of some description. The drop in dialup connections from 2007 to 2008 is huge.
