Alternatives In Converting PSD To HTML

Alternatives In Converting PSD To HTML

In the field of computer programming, website designers are the service providers who are mostly in demand, and if the designer knows coding services, then he becomes even more important.

HTML is an acronym for hyper text markup language. HTML is a language using markup tagging for web page descriptions. All the web browsers go over HTML documents and convert them to web pages. The scripting language of the web is known as JavaScript and it is used in millions of web pages. It does a lot of performance workloads, including detecting browsers and augments functionality.

In converting PSD to HTML, CSS, or cascading style sheets, are also taken into consideration. The styles signify how the elements of the HTML are put forward, and they are normally documented as outside .css files. What is most beneficial in this regard is that the CSS assist you in improving and upgrading the appearance and layout of the entire group of web pages by simply editing a single page in the website.

The introduction of the PSD files is one of the latest developments for designers of web pages. The designer is given the chance to add or remove layers or change an image color with the layering of these PSD files. This gives better chances to convert your PSD to HTML.

Navigation through a website is made possible by XHTML, HTML and CSS markups. The proper conversion of PSD to HTML gives the opportunity to have a fast loading and user friendly website together with all the beneficial features for better compatibility.

In order to better convert their work, the utilization of the CSS, JavaScript and HTML is being done extensively by a lot of web designers. Most of these designers are quite lacking in familiarity with the HTML and CSS codes, much less with the conversion of PSD to HTML.

With the ever changing Internet, it is very important that there is viewing capabilities to all relevant browsers by the websites. In order to ensure compatibility of websites with all browsers, PSD to HTML conversion is made.

With a lot of designers being unfamiliar with technical terms and conversion procedures, there are some alternatives they can resort to in order to alleviate their problems. First of all, they can try to learn about it and encode the conversions themselves. Next, they can engage the services of a professional who is familiar with the JavaScript, CSS, and HTML. Finally, they can resort to their PSD to HTML conversions using automated instruments and facilities.

These three alternatives all have their respective pros and cons. The different alternatives would depend heavily on factors which include necessity, funds, and their urgency. Having a well designed website is a key element in keeping above the other websites.



The web designer is taking prominence in spelling the success of a website. The PSD to HTML conversion is one of the prime duties of the web designer. Instead of concerning himself with coding, the web designer should focus on designing the website with the conversion of PSD to HTML in mind.

Navigating the Job Market - Alternatives to Recruitment Agencies & Online Job Boards

Navigating the Job Market - Alternatives to Recruitment Agencies & Online Job Boards

"I just feel like I'm not finding enough opportunities for myself." This is a common complaint that we are receiving from our clients at the minute. In the last two days I have had two clients say to me that they are speaking to agencies, searching online job boards and looking through the paper and are not seeing opportunities that interest them or relevant to their skills sets.


Recruitment agencies are suffering severely in the current economic climate, with more businesses recruiting in-house or not recruiting at all. Some agencies are reporting a 40-50% reduction in fees in comparison to this time last year and we have seen significant redundancies or reduction of staff across most players in the Australian market.


Budget restraints mean that even those organizations that don't have a recruitment freeze (or "cool down") may not be using traditional methods of recruitment. This is supported by the ANZ bank's job advertisement series, which found that Internet and newspaper job advertisements fell by 6.7% in June, following a couple of months of stabilization, which is takes the annual fall for 51.4%.


Individuals are still finding new jobs and companies are still recruiting, so how do you find these opportunities?


1) Network


John Lees (leading UK career strategist), reports that approximately 60% of job seekers find work through their network, in comparison to merely 10% through recruitment agencies. Quite often the job opportunity doesn't necessarily come through your first degree network, rather through their network.


Create a list of all the people that you know and batch them into groups (e.g. sports teams, previous colleagues, parents of your kid's friends). Then get clear about what you want to achieve and what outcomes you are looking for. For example if you have a specific company you would like to work for, write that down. If you would like a contact within an organisation where you have applied for a role directly, write that down.


Once you have your outcomes listed, email, call or meet members of your network and ask for their help. Many people have a fear of burdening their network or coming across as "desperate." However, if done in the right way, most people are happy to help their friends/network, feeling privileged to have been asked. Ask for help in an informal way, or over coffee. If you are composing an email, include your request as part of another relevant topic to your groups.


By keeping track of who you have contacted and what the outcomes were and when you need to follow up, you will soon feel like you are making progress. Tracking your progress using Excel or another such tool makes it even easier.


2) Approach Companies Directly


Is there a company or industry that you have always wanted to work for? Why not research opportunities with them directly? If you were to go to a recruitment agency, they would contact these organizations on your behalf. As many organizations do not have the budget to work with recruitment agencies. Why not try this yourself? First of all, get really clear about why you want to work for this organization. What is the benefit to them of hiring you (have you worked for a competitor previously? Do you have a strong understanding of the industry? Do you have invaluable contacts to help with business development?).


Then research their website. Get a strong indication of who they are and what projects they are working on. Look at the careers section of their website; do they have any relevant job opportunities? Speak to your network and see if there are any hints that they may be recruiting in the future? For example if you know that the business is currently tendering for a large project, this could mean that there will be opportunities available if this is won.


Once you have gathered this information, and feel confident about the benefits of hiring you, call or apply on line. Remember if you are applying to a specific job, tailor your resume accordingly. If you are calling to find out if there are any opportunities, firstly see if your network knows any contacts within the business.


Alternatively, find the number for HR via the website, LinkedIn or call via the reception desk. Explain your reason for the call, why you would love to work for the company and ask if they have current opportunities, or potential opportunities in the future. An employer is more likely to hire somebody who is genuinely keen to work for their organization, so even if they don't have any opportunities available right now, ask if you can send through your resume, so that it is on file. Such calls can also result in an informal meeting, in case things change in future.


By using a holistic approach to your job search, you are more likely to find the job you want. Use the above strategies in conjunction with existing relationships with recruiters and frequently checking online job boards, papers and industry publications.

3 Effective Alternatives to Google Adwords

3 Effective Alternatives to Google Adwords

 


For example, the co-founder of internet sensation Dropbox recently shared that Adwords never made sense for the company.  Even after all of their optimization efforts, the cost per acquisition remained at more than $ 200 for a $ 99 product.


If your optimization efforts have also fallen short, it may be time to explore some alternatives to Adwords.  There are three that may be worth considering:



Facebook


Description: If measured purely by number of users, Facebook is among the closest to Google with more than 500 million registered users. To find the users you’re interested in, Facebook allows you to target specific customer segments by age, gender, location and interests. 


Good fit: Facebook is worth a try if your product is consumer-oriented and you know a lot about your customers.  With this information, you should be able to easily target your niche and deliver high-quality traffic to your website.


Example: Wedding photographer targeting recently-engaged couples in Southern California.  



LinkedIn


Description: Because LinkedIn is an expensive option with a minimum CPC of $ 2.00, it is critical to optimize well.  Fortunately, the service allows you to target by industry, profession, age and geography.


Good fit: LinkedIn may be an appropriate option if your product or service is designed for professionals and has a high price point in order to recoup your costs.


Example: An enterprise software company targeting the key decision makers – CIOs and CEOs – of medium- to large-sized companies. 



Amazon Product Ads


Description: On each product page, Amazon offers “sponsored links” approximately halfway down the page.  While targeting is less specific, advertisers can select which product categories to focus on.  A minimum CPC is based on the category and the price of the original product.   


Good fit: To advertise on Amazon, your company must be selling a physical product – not a service.  In addition, it helps if your product fits nicely within Amazon’s categorization so you are targeting the right type of customers.  Because visitors are in the purchasing mindset, this is an ideal opportunity to advertise.


Example: A customer jewelry manufacturer selling pieces between the prices of $ 60 and $ 180.


While Adwords remains an important part of most companies’ advertising, I expect to see more diversification as these services, and others, become more mature.
