When chasing value, one of the hardest challenges is to overcome the human tendency to grab the obvious bargain. Cheap things often cost more in the long run, as 19th-century philosopher John Ruskin noted, " Unwise to pay too much, but it is worse to pay too little," he wrote. "When you pay too much, you lose a little money. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought is incapable of doing [what] it was bought to do." More than anything, this applies to this applies to our approach to SEO implementation.Find out more »
Web design & Branding
Branding is more than just words and designs. It must be accompanied with great actions. Otherwise, it will all be a waste of time and money. Every brand has a story to tell. Some are inspirational while others are tragic. In so many ways, building a brand is like telling a great story. At the heart of both crafts is the power to evoke emotions from the audience. Great storytellers can make you cry while branding experts can make you buy. In some aspect, branding is different from storytelling for it is a two-way system. In stories, the author controls the ideas and plots. In branding, your story is a collaboration of your vision and opinions of your customers, suppliers and even competitors.Find out more »

I started work with Aristide as part of a business engagement for a medical biller. Over the few months, I slowly watched the struggling biller transform into a profitable biller. Aristide used his knowledge of business processes thoroughly. The custom applications he and his team developed saved the biller time and money. For small business turnarounds, it is great to have Aristide and his team as your consultants.
"The nice thing about working with Aristide is that if he's not sure how to do something, he finds out, but then he improves it." "Aristide is always surprising me with what he can do...graphic design, internet code, marketing ideas. You name it, he's got it mastered. (I hear he can even ride a unicycle and juggle--go figure). But the best part is that Aristide doesn't just get jobs done on time, he's always coming up with ideas and plans to make my business better."
Mark, I just wanted to thank you again for all of your hard work and patience. I just looked at the website live and I have to say, I'm extremely impressed. It is everything I'd hoped for and more. The only thing that is missing is your name on it. Feel free to plug your name on it anywhere you'd like; you deserve to get your name out there and you deserve credit for building it. If you feel like taking on anymore future projects, I would be more than happy to pass your name along. We'll be in touch.
Over the past three years, I have worked with Aristide on numerous projects. He is creative, informed and skilled in his ability to analyze situations, evaluate a process, and make innovative recommendations with clarity and vision. I have experienced the nearly uncanny intuition he displays as a consultant and project manager, which I am convinced comes from an innate sense of business and brand development. I recommend Aristide and WeServeBest highly to any company.
Sem and Aristide, what a team. They are always willing to go the extra mile, always on top of things. I cannot believe that I am so lucky to have found them. Not only did they assist me with my website, but they regularly assist me with second and third tier assistance with my customers.
Aristide and his team guided our office through a metamorphose. In hindsight, we were an ugly caterpillar. But both of them saw our company for what we now feel it is, a beautiful butterfly. Thanks to them, we are saving money on a daily basis, and our own customers love us too, because the time saving applications that they instilled us with, have allowed us to refocus on what we do best, sprinkler installations and service. Aristide and Andrew really served us best!
Aristide and his team worked together to deliver an outstanding website customized to fit my needs. Aristide was instrumental in helping me establish and professional web presence. My web traffic soared for both my website and my blog under their management. They work seemlessly behind the scenes to create internet marketing magic!

We certainly live in a different world these days as compared to even 10 years ago, when eCommerce was just in it's infancy. This recent article lays out that eCommerce is on it's way to become 250 Billion industy in 2014, not counting Europe nor the rest of the world.
Wow, I knew ecommerce was a big industry but I didn’t realise just how big!
Forrester Research has published a report which predicts that online retail sales will continue to grow and by 2014 online sales and ecommerce are estimated to reach $248 Billion dollars!. These figures are for US and does not include online sales for Europe, Japan and the rest of the world.

Web design & Branding
Even though this was published back in 2003, Here's an absolutely great article. Elevator pitches that don't work. 350 smart marketers were asked to eveluate the one line elevator pitches from 17 big, well known companies. The one liners were scrambled up; so no one knew which one liner belonged to which company. All marketers were asked a simple question: Match the pitch the to company.
eBay, of course, is "To help practically anyone buy and sell practically anything". But which company, precisely, is "Continued investments in IT result in measurable productivity gains.?"
EXPECTING your ads to communicate ideas this complicated in a sentence or two is ridiculous. Just having great websites is not the answer eiter. This is where true branding comes in to play. Marketing guru Seth Godin, in this acticle titled "Brand as mythology" he published in 2006, cleverly aligns branding and myhology.
Most of us remember the mythology stories they taught us in school (Zeus and Thor and the rest of the comic-like heroes.) Myths allow us to project ourselves into their stories, to imagine interactions that never took place, to take what's important to us and live it out through the myth.
There are dozens, if not hundreds of entertainment mythological brands. James Bond and Barbie, for example.
But it goes far behond that.
There's clearly a Google mythology and a Starbucks one was well. We feel differently about brands like these than we do about, say Maxwell House or Random House.
Why do Santa and Ronald McDonald have a mythology but not Dave at Wendy's or the Burger King?
People use a Dell. They are an Apple.
This can happen accidentally, but it often occurs on purpose. A brand can be deliberately mythological, created to intentionally deliver the benefits of myth. Casinos in Las Vegas have been trying to do this for decades (and usually failing). But talk to a Vegas cab driver about Steve Wynn and you can see that it's been done at least once.
Branding can be compared to a process that is alive. It is constant, alsways happening. Although the word process may connote something cumbersome, most branding processes can be (and should be) simple to the point of becoming second nature. As such, branding becomes like the syntax that children learn to align words into meaningful sentences. They allow entire organizations to communicate with their customers more effectively and convincingly
