The best advice for 2020 is to recycle your existing content.
There is so much valuable content already out there that might do with a quick little rework and it’s as good as fresh ready to put up on your blog, social media accounts and newsletters!
Have a think about all that marketing material you’ve put together over the years!
Do you have a seasonal menu or a document that needs ongoing adjustments and want to manage it yourself to save time and money??
We can set up an editable template to give you the professional look you desire with the functionality to adjust text just like we created for The Bakehouse.
It takes just 7 seconds to make a first impression…?or much less if you welcome visitors to your site with a security warning…
Google ranks websites with website security higher in search engines and favours websites with SSL encryption.
If your website address is currently ?HTTP? without the ?S?, it indicates it is an unsecure website.
YYC offers website security and SSL certificates to our clients.
A key factor which determines the cost of a logo is level of?complexity. To make a sophisticated mark and leave a lasting impression doesn’t mean?unaffordable. Don’t assume you can’t achieve the ?business branding you desire.
Are you thinking you might have a go and make your own website? Here are a few things to consider when creating a DIY website vs. hiring a professional web designer and SEO specialist:
Do you want to be found on google search with organic SEO?
Will an amateur website attract customers to take the next step?
In your own industry, would you recommend people leave it to the?experts for a professional result?
?Isn?t a logo and a brand the same thing?? No, they are not the same thing.
A logo is a unique design element, often including a business name and symbol.?
A brand is every single touch-point your customers have with your company. It’s everything. It is tangible and intangible and gives your logo meaning.
We worked with Stefanie Thoms Photography?on a brand refresh. The business offers the full brand experience from logo, colour palette and consistently branded material to the language used online and offline, and the overall way you feel when you are experiencing the business

Google has now introduced HTTPS as a ranking factor in search engines and favours websites with SSL encryption.
If your website address is currently ?HTTP? without the ?S?, it indicates it is an unsecure website. Google now ranks websites with SSL certification higher than those without.
Give your website a Google ranking boost by securing your website with an SSL certificate. The ?S? displays to visitors that any sensitive data, like personal details or login information transferred through the website will remain safe by encrypting it.
Yik Yak Creative offers website security and SSL certificates to our clients. Ask us for an SSL certificate price.

BUSINESS NAMING & THE SCRABBLE TEST:
Business names with letters that have high values in Scrabble such as J, K, Q, V, W, X, Y and Z are often more memorable as they are less commonly used in western languages.
This makes a business name easier to remember and recall.
Looking for the best logo colour?

We?re 100% Australian and unlike some web design agencies, we never outsource overseas (no, not even a little printing…). PLUS you?ll always deal directly with us one-on-one.
