There are millions of websites live on the internet today. However, many of them are utterly useless, serving no purpose whatsoever. There was a time when it was fashionable to have a website, promoting anything and everything. Aesthetics and how those websites looked didn’t enter the equation. As long as they had some flash and some background music then everything was alright.
When you go to a website, it should serve a purpose. Whether that is providing a service, selling products or just informing people about certain things. We at Webspring Design have been surfing the net for a few years now, looking for resources, whether they are solely for web design or general business related. We have come across some useful websites and online resources over that period. Here are our top 5 resources, in no particular order…
Dropbox is a cloud storage facility that allows you to store your important files and documents amongst multiple devices. This facility essentially is a USB key on a cloud, allowing you to access your files whether your on your mobile phone, iPad or computer.
We, at Webspring Design, use Dropbox religiously to share documents with our clients and vice versa. Rather than clients sending us multiple emails with images and text documents, then can just drag and drop those files into a Dropbox folder that we have shared with them. Dropbox is a free tool to start with and you get additional space if you refer people to download it. It’s definitely worth a look.
