Ultimate Tips and Trends for Designing a Winning Contact Page

Contact Us

Web forms on a contact page play a pretty important role to let prospects subscribe to newsletters, sign up for free entry to exclusive website content, or to exhort them to make an online purchase. Varied forms lay the foundation for multiple online interactions.

Every form has a purpose to serve, but contact forms are one of the most important ones for business. They conveniently help businesses to get in touch with different people and allows visitors to get in touch with the company. Not all contact forms are designed well.

Here are some dos and don’ts for designing better contact forms.

1. Do make it a personal form

A contact form helps the site visitors to contact your business representative implying that they are interested in reaching out to connect with you. They are looking for personal interaction and not merely looking at information through the site. By making the form personal, you create a sense of assurance about your genuine identity and you are keen to hearing from them.

A personal contact form is both very appealing and extremely inviting. Inviting a person with a likable and personal touch helps in attracting the prospects since it gives them importance. Also. Use of handwritten fonts makes it quite personal on the contact form.

2. Don’t make the form long and boring

The look and feel of the contact form says a lot about your company. Never keep a contact form in a neutral, dark, design as it might look impersonal and distant. Also, one should not make the contact form look boring and staid as it might scare visitors off.

Less contrast between background and content also robs the contact form of its presence. The sites become extremely one-note and not at all inviting.

3. Do keep it relevant

Before you venture to think about the colours and the font being used for contact forms, the purpose of the contact form needs to be spelled out. Start brainstorming about the intent and define form fields in a way that it is convenient for visitors to put in genuine information about themselves.

4. Don’t ask for any random information

Endless web forms are useless since they contain too much random information. The website should have a reason in garnering the information and what it is going to do with the data. Do not ask for info that one does not really need. Also, keep the contact form for those interested in your offerings not for people who just have some query about something.

Never ask visitors for information just so that they should be sharing it and you want to increase leads in a superficial manner.

5. Do keep it simple

Keeping the form simple is one way to go. All the visitors care about one thing and that is their own message. They would not like to shell out more information other than a name and an email id so that the company knows that they are talking to a genuine person. Making other fields obligatory is just a way to turn your visitors off.

The contact form should be a better alternative to email campaigns and should prompt the user to send in their message and punch in “Submit.”

6. Don’t ask for captcha codes

Yes captcha codes still happen. These codes are like irritating form filters that weed out unwanted automated submissions. But putting every genuine prospect to the same test is giving them a chance to hate you. Having them all over the place is the worst way to drive an interested visitor out.

Captchas never make forms secure and getting the codes from visitors is like asking them to decipher letters that appear in a random fashion.

7. Do say who will reply

Every contact page should present a representative of the company in the end and should allow visitors to know about the person who might get in line when you call. With a contact form, one should intimate the other person who is expected to reply to the message. Your contact form appears to be trustworthy if the visitor gets to know who will receive the message.

8. Don’t make people doubt the credibility of the company

Contact forms are like ‘online faces’ of the company. Due to time difference and geographic distance, some people will not be able to talk in real-time. Contact forms sets up a connection and is the form that makes a connection between the prospect and the company. Making a good first impression is important since that adds to the credibility of the company.

9. Do offer alternative details to contact on the site

Some people like forms while some do not. When designing the contact form, allow people to contact directly too especially if they are not too keen to fill in the contact form. Ask for the email address or a phone number or provide them the details too so that they can even engage with your users through social media channels.

Ending Note

Contact forms are the face of the site and the company. Designing a contact form efficiently goes a long way to boost your business credibility and profits in the long run.

How to Compare Web Hosting Services


There are a great many different examples of hosting services out there, and finding the one you need is always going to be difficult. The Huffington Post has made it quite clear that choosing the wrong web host can easily cause a loss of revenue for your company. In order to make the comparison however, all you need to do is determine just what you need, in particular. Some of the considerations that you might make include:

  • Length of time you have been in business
  • The scope of your operation
  • What you need hosted
  • Your technical expertise

When it comes right down to it, there are some services that will work better for you than others, so let’s take a look at some of the most common features that you should come to expect when you compare web hosting services at Cloud Kompare.


Web hosting, as you probably know, is handled remotely,which means you’re going to need hardware and lots of it. A web server needs to serve your site to customers and this can be very simple or very complex. Either way you need to make sure that the hardware is capable of running your site and receiving the traffic. Oftentimes it comes down to whether you wish to settle for a shared server, or perhaps put forth the money for a more robust dedicated server that is only occupied by you and your website. Ultimately you want to consider the following:

  • RAM – How much memory the server has; the more of this your server has, the mores simultaneous tasks your site will be able to perform. In the end this will help to accommodate more users.
  • Processor – A faster processor means a faster moving site on the customer end, though it will be more expensive.
  • Hard Drive Space – All web hosting services will be equipped with top of the line hard drives and space is expandable. Choosing the amount of space you need will be easy enough as you will simply need to determine whether you are just serving web content or going so far as to serve files.
  • Bandwidth – This is not a hardware matter, but rather one of the internet service provider. Bandwidth from a company like this one is mostly split into parts and provided on an as needed basis. As you pay for more bandwidth, your website will obviously be faster, but you should only expand this as needed.



When you are in the process of comparing the different plans, make sure that the software meets your needs as well. Software will range from the operating system, the control panel for your website, and even the plugins installed. For example some servers will utilize WordPress, while others will run the less user friendly apache. This is a choice that you can often make when you are securing your web hosting services, though sometimes it becomes specific to the service in question. This is definitely something that you will want to consider when you are signing for any particular service as you will want to make sure it is not only equipped with quality software, but software that you know how to use. Remember, the one you choose, whether it be WordPress, Apache, or some other flavor will greatly influence the way you handle your programming. Choosing incorrectly can easily result in problems.

Other considerations will include the plugins as these will determine whether or not your website actually functions as needed. For example, Shockwave Flash is a great feature, but is the plugin supported server side? Do you want to run a phBB board? Wonderful idea, but once again, is it properly supported on the server side? These, among many others, will make a huge difference in how you conduct your business and how you present your page to your clients. Control over your server and website using cPanel is also an important service as outlined by Techno Skill Online. These are all important questions you need to ask when you are trying to make a comparison.

Making the Comparison

In order to make this comparison you will need to take a look at the Cloud Kompare website and glance over the partners list. There are several guidelines that you will want to follow, most of which we mentioned above. Overall, you need to compare your needs with the offerings of each service. How big is your company? How much do you plan to expand in the next few years? How quickly are you going to expand? Start looking into the different options today and make sure that your company is ready to move into the 21st century with the right web host. There is a lot of work to be done.

Five Important Design Tips for Creating Mobile Apps

Mobile Apps Design Tips

Native app UI design does not allow designers enough room to play around. Designing for smaller screens is a tough ask since the users have short attention spans. The UI design needs to be worked around in an interface that’s easy enough for the newbies but should not put off the experienced users too.

#1. Use your Screen for Facilitating Interaction in the best Possible Manner

The rules of good interaction design are based on usable native app interfaces. Every dot, every word and every part of the screen lets the designer define margins and padding. Strokes define your work area.

Maintenance of consistent width and height is a must for better interaction design. User research helps designers to create effective personas for using the app. Specific goals based on the workflow are required to suit preferences. One needs to understand that every signifier should be implied on the basis of familiarity. For example, a blue link will indicate the hyperlink to the user that will redirect elsewhere. Use of signifiers guides the users to know the purpose of each UI element.

Familiar patterns attract new users and are strong enough to attract users. Feedback sections need to adhere to guidelines mentioned in the standards so that the user can send in their opinions any time.

#2. User Response Anticipation Based on Personas and Scenarios

Since the screen size is one of the constraints in mobile design, user interaction can be understood through guided anticipation of actions. Personas are good indicators of expected behaviour and they easily indicate the expected users’ decisions within the app. Scenarios on the other hand, provide insight on the actions of each of the user, while with the help of well-chalked out experience maps, possible options for single interaction can be drawn that can chart each step of every persona while using an app. The emotions and circumstances are taken into consideration too.

#3. User Flow, Colour Values and Navigation Ideas

  • User flows need to be sketched out so that the approach for design suits your intended audience. It can be just a visual reconstruction of impending actions too.
  • Colour value can be used to show purpose. For instance use of black and greyscale will help you to show the increasing importance based on shades. Colour defines their relationship with a brand and it should be used in multiple ways.
  • Do not keep the same colours on the app as it is on the site. Call to actions buttons in bright red should be avoided since it means stop in the US, and will deter users from clicking it.
  • A written outline helps users to explore content. Build your flows around content for a better assessment of pages required for your app.
  • The outline will also help you explore page flows and lay detail around the layout and the overall structure. One can test those ideas with users with a simple prototype too.

#4. The Right Orientation, Logos, Posture and Popularity of Design

A brand based on the mobile makes the client and the client chooses the brand. The logo is a part of a great business: and a poor logo will reflect very poorly on your stature even in the form of a mobile app.

Design is trendy, but a logo need to not stick to its origins. Brand design in mobiles do not revolve around logos since they are stuck in the age when they were first created.

Mobile design is specific to thumb placement, and revolves around right orientation and posture.

Popular interfaces revolve around

  • Common mobile patterns which are popular so that users “feel at home”.
  • Use of common UI patterns helps in increasing usability although every app needs to bask in its own creativity.
  • Ensure that your app design is aligned with user expectations and yet not boring.
  • All user actions revolve around gestures including the touch, swipe, taps, pinches and zoom which are actions that users prefer.
  • Animation on the other hand keeps the user interested, grounded and attached to the UI adding context in the process.
  • Popular mobile interaction patterns can help dictate the placement of interface elements too.

#5. Design in the Perfect Grid, Suitable for quick Responses to Gestures

Grids are the basis of mobile app design and fingers are the touchpoints. There’s an invisible grid that is important to mobile design. Every element determines the spacing.

  • The fingers are thicker than those pixel-precise cursors controlled by the mouse, so finger-friendly design is an important aspect for app designers.
  • Separate the text, the colours and the elements to create a hierarchy.
  • Allow space for users to tap with their fingertips. Buttons should not be too small or bunched closely since users will fail to tap them accurately.
  • Users expect their phones to respond quickly, and efficiently to interactions. Certain interactions take a longer time than usual. Competent design tells you how to fake it.
  • With every interaction, there should be feedback. Every user action is responded to with an animation that responds to user feedback stating that the process is being executed.

Could Apple Watch’s new game change the face of mobile gaming?

Apple Watch

June is finally here and after selling out more than a million copies in one day, Apple fans around the world will be eagerly anticipating the arrival of the new gadget through their letterboxes this month.

The Apple Watch has been making headlines ever since it first went on general sale in April, and whilst some reviews were great, some were not as favourable about the newest release from the creative genius of Jonathan Ive. Available in three models, the Apple Watch, the Apple Watch Sport and the somewhat extravagant Apple Watch Edition, the gadget serves primarily as a notification device which works best with other Apple products.

One area that the watch fell short on however was its gaming offering: obviously, with a watch face that’s just a few millimetres across in size, we can’t be expecting to shoot down bad guys a la Call of Duty.

However, in response to criticism about the watch, one savvy games developer has decided to produce a game that is specifically designed for a gadget of such a size and capabilities. Step forward, Runeblade, the new fantasy role playing game that sees players entering into a mystical realm to ward off evil spirits.

Unlike many other of the 3,500 apps now available for the Apple Watch, this is one that does not rely on another Apple product to function to its full potential. Developers at Everywear Games are describing it as “Twitter-sized entertainment” and the principle is the same – short bursts of excitement, for 10 to 15 seconds at a time.

Everywear Games CEO Aki Järvilehto said: “If you look at the dynamics of similar platforms, it’s always been games and entertainment that make us feel passionate about these devices.”

What’s more, staff at Everywear Games are also clearly on the money when it comes to game genres. Popular television shows like Game of Thrones have only served to catapult the fantasy genre to the top spot for gaming fans, and this has been exemplified in many other industries such as online gambling – at Slotocash, for example, their Orc vs Elf game is proving particularly popular with online players. But does this mean that mobile gaming is to undergo a huge change in the future?

While many of us will be used to playing mobile games on tablets, smartphones or even ‘phablets’, it’s another kettle of fish to play a whole game on a tiny watch device. However, for bursts of fun of only 10 seconds at a time, this could be just the kind of pint-sized fun that today’s gamer is looking for.

Gaming for Education – Already a Dominant Trend


Video games play a great role in learning and education and this has been a topic of debate from years. The educators have been discussing the influences and potentials of video games in education.

By playing a game, the students may learn new concepts and ideas. They can take on a different perspective with different options available to them. Students must be kept engaged in various activities that are helpful for them.

There are countless skills that can be learned through games like creativity, teamwork, etc. The students can develop a variety of connections with the content in the game and can also form positive memories of learning the new skills. A game allows students to quickly engage and transition back to the content they were working on.

Why only video games?

There are many people in this world who are giving a second thought to consider video games for education. Video games are being considered good for motivational learning. Fantasy, challenge and control are some of the techniques used in games and all these are considered as the cornerstones of motivational theory.

Teachers have been using motivational games for learning from years. The games are excited and challenging for the students and they are mostly to evoke the emotions and are likely to stick to the minds.

Video games help bridging the gap between the digital generations as the World Wide Web has a significant effect on the way the students think and learn. Using games for teaching is one of the ways to shift to an amazing learning format for the digital generation. The students will be more motivated to learn new skills using games. Competition and the urge to win the game also motivates the students as this gives quick feedback that enable the student to figure out the right track for themselves.

Why not traditional learning?

There are a number of reasons as to why the traditional learning is not a better option for students.

  • By the time the students get their grades, it is very late to for them to do anything. They cannot correct their mistakes at that time.
  • The grade value is not for the rewards of the learning process.
  • The traditional way of learning does not helps the students to escape and do not even tell their lacking area. But the games allow the students to assess their knowledge and give them a chance to see where they are lacking.

Game-based learning

It is the kind of learning that broadly refers to the use of video games to support teaching. Gamification is a new concept than game-based learning. It is the use of elements that are derived from the design of video-game that is deployed in a variety of contexts, rather than using individual games. It is an interesting topic and the rules & principles of gaming could make the children and young people eager to engage in most of the educational activities they used to find uninteresting or too difficult.

The game-based techniques encourage competition and self-improvement among students. The video game language can be used to reframe the traditional activities of the school.

Gaming can be positive for school going children

It is not just in-school gaming that is beneficial, but all gaming activities can be positive for children.

  • Gaming is a social activity
  • Improves thinking skills
  • Improves reading skills
  • Helps relieve stress
  • Allows individualized learning
  • Teach new technical skills
  • Helps in cognitive development
  • Make children happy
  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Increase leadership skills

Gaming for education

The educational gaming is $1.50 billion industry and it will increase to around $2.3 billion industry in the next five years.

Video games are getting involved with the education sector, but most of the parents are neglecting this as a good source of education for their children. But it is true that they are shaping the world of education and this will continue to happen in the coming years as well. SimCity game has been transferred to SimCityEdu which is completely inclined to teach the students about systems and environmental effect. Another game, GameGuru, teaches the students to predict the motion of particles based on Newtonian physics.

The schools will also replace the examinations as the teachers will realize the importance of game-based assessments. The children require deeper learning skills which is an important factor to consider.

Gaming impact on motivation and engagement

By encouraging and praising the student, the gaming software can develop confidence and motivation to continue with the given task. The students take the game learning as more enjoyable and exciting as compared to the traditional way of learning. The student does not get bored as in traditional learning. This allows retaining the memory easily and understanding the basic concepts.

When students play games, they want to play more and are more engaged. They pay more attention to the game till the time they reach the target. The game is able to change the state of the mind as the students become more aware of the relationship between the tasks and their real life.

The children feel a sense of humor while playing games as they are able to change their mood and are entertaining as well. Most of the traditional studies are quantitative in nature, but game-based learning is totally qualitative.
Motivation and engagement created by the game-based learning directly impacts on learning outcomes. Academic achievement measures do not completely measure the potential of children.

Gaming impact on student’s attitude to learning

Games are able to promote positive attitude towards learning. A cooperative structure is better than the competitive structure towards mathematical learning.

The learning attitude is beneficial for both the male and female students. It is expected that the innovative approach not only improves the student’s knowledge, but also foster their daily habits.

Gaming – The future of learning

The world continues to change how we communicate or entertain ourselves. Schools and parents may benefit from the growing world of video games.

Games help create an educational future for the children where they are deeply engaged and excited with what they are learning from them. They are able to develop new learning skills on their own. It is just the beginning to explore the potential of video games among children. It is the right time for the educators and the game developers also to build a new paradigm for the education of children. Beyond teaching, video games also offer information about how well a child is learning and improving the skills.

From all these trends it is quite obvious that Gamification and gaming will soon become an essential part of the education sector.

Cleanmaster Application – Indirect Contributor of Smartphone Improved Performance & Security


In a era of Mobile centric application revolution, the investment dynamics moved from voice feature centric mobility devices to converged feature supporting increasing data usages by end user. In context of India where more than 300 Mn plus internet user’s attracted major investment in more or less all segments under the NCPR categorization. In lieu of that mobile operator’s also jumped in bandwagon and started developing their own VAS centric application as well as collaborating with Smartphone players to get the data plan integrated to acquire data user’s at much lower end.

The economics and design KPI’s of Smartphone players are changing every day with very stiff competition w.r.t specifications, meeting end consumer adoption trend and pricepoint between homegrown domestic player’s such as Micromax, Karbonn, Intex, Lava with the likes of Lenovo and Motorola, Xiaomi, HTC, Samsung, Sony, LG, Gionee and others.

The stiff price war between Smartphone players attracted Smartphone players to look towards the application providers who is looking for the active user’s at one end whereas Mobile Operator’s to acquire data user. It’s being observed that many Smartphone players went ahead and embedded applications in order to gain recurring VAS revenue to manage their profitability in a declining Smartphone price segment where the data bundling also helped Smartphone players to get into collaboration with Application providers on Cost per activation model.

The free Data plan also helped many application providers to use indirect approach to reach out to different segment of user’s . The mesh ecosystem also impacted the end user device performance as majority of end user’s are not aware of mechanism to manage their data usages, application management as well as not aware of RAM/ROM initiated indirect impact on devices

Based on the survey done by e2einfotelanalysis (p) Ltd, www.e2einfotelanalysis.com across Metro’s, CircleA, B and C, it is shocking to have the followings

  1. How to clean Temporary Memory – 25%
  2. How to manage RAM- 20%
  3. How to manage ROM – 23%
  4. How many knows about the background running App – 5%
  5. How many knows how to manage applications -18%
  6. How many knows the reasons of battery heating/drainage initiated by Application – 10%
  7. How many knows how to kill an open applications -16.5%

and many more.

The survey was carried out in three categories of end user’s such as Prosumer’s, Consumer’s and Fresh entrant.

The queries thrown towards different category of user’s is centric to common understanding of one’s mobility product and how to manage their preferred, rarely and non interesting applications/games usages. Unfortunately, the prosumer classes were in most confusing state whereas consumer’s which relies in handset pricepoint raging from $ 65 to $130 are most cautious one regarding device due to limited specifications w.r.t RAM, ROM and Battery size.

Interesting, we observed that 35% of the device had Cleanmaster applications which typically cater User Privacy, RAM/ROM management, Internet usage management, Device Security, CPU cooling tool, application management and many more.

Team also made following observation about devices carrying Cleanmaster vs. non-Cleanmaster centric devices

  1. User having Cleanmaster in their device had more downloaded application and managed their applications in seamless process even in device specification having 256/512 MB RAM.
  2. The CPU heat level was lower even though user was using multiple process compared to similar specification based devices without Cleanmaster application
  3. The Battery lasted 30% more than non-cleanmaster device but having same mHA battery. Please note that the survey team made sure that network coverage for both the devices are in same environment with decent level of signal strength
  4. Retention % of Cleanmaster App user’s are higher than other similar product due to user interface and attached touched process management
  5. In a overload RAM/ROM scenario, Cleanmaster application attached devices user manages to free up around 15%/28% RAM/ROM respectively whereas non Cleanmaster device centric user’s tried many other similar applications but deleted it after few days to weeks
  6. Many More

The above survey gave us the confidence to recommend Cleanmaster Application to manage one’s device to increase the speed, response turnaround time, Internet usage/speed, privacy, better RAM/ROM management to use devices effectively and efficiently, Internet cookies management , Battery performance in an indirect way. The most interesting part of Cleanmaster Applications is the attached giftbox from user can download range of Local and International applications but to maintain the privacy of Indian user segment, Cleanmaster application only send notifications related to feature compared to attached Giftbox which makes this application truely impressive. The above assessment also indicate that Indian Smartphone player should be given tools/applications which is centric to device awareness and usages of the same should enable user’s to use their device longer with less or no maintenance. It is ultimately going to help Smartphone player device footfall in their Customer Care related to Battery drainage, RAM/ROM overload attached device crashing, Device heating etc.

OTT TV Market to generate $32bn in Subscription Revenues by 2019 – Juniper Research


juniperAccording to a recent report by Juniper Research, subscriptions from ‘over-the-top’ (OTT) TV providers such as Netflix and Amazon Prime will generate $31.6 billion by 2019, up from just under $8 billion in 2014.

The report shows that continued growth in the established markets of West Europe and North America, along with the emergence of key OTT players in the Far East and Asia Pacific, will bring a surge in the uptake of OTT subscriptions over the next four years.

The report showed that OTT services are seeing a rapid uptake by consumers who want to view content, when and where it suits them. The report argued that traditional broadcasters are facing increased competition as more services go over-the-top of pay TV incumbents, allowing distributors such as Sling TV to provide customers with a cheaper, tailored alternative to cable TV, driving the trend for ‘cord-cutting’.

Though Netflix and YouTube have launched 4K (ultra-high definition) services, the adoption of 4K content has been slow thus far. Juniper is predicting this to change over the next 2 years. Netflix added its 4K offering to its highest priced subscription package last year, showing belief that consumers are willing to pay for higher quality content, while OTT providers are gaining recognition as being the first to supply viewers with content in this new format. Meanwhile, 4K TVs will continue to become more affordable, accelerating hardware take-up.

The report also predicted that over 84% of OTT subscriptions will be made via connected TVs by 2019. Also, IPTV revenues are set to more than double between 2014 and 2019, rewarding Network Operator’s investment in Triple and Quad-Play Services.
