Love the work Our client’s love our work, they tell us so. We love what we do for our clients and we believe that shows in the work that our client’s love. Actually, its more than believing – we know it shows. Love the team Everyone achieves something with the help of somebody else. All of our achievements are founded on our ability to cooperate and work as a team. Even when we do something as an individual, it is done employing the skills and knowledge passed to us through learning from the sharing of another’s experience. This is always happening in the background of our lives, whether inherited through our genes or through our sensory experience. Our client and us are a team, and by working as a team and sharing information, we can create something better. Love the results When you love what you do, you see great results.…

goodbye-google-plus

Google+ is closing down As of August 2019, Google Plus will no longer exist. Google is closing it down partly for the reason that it just wasn’t used by the social network community like Facebook, Twitter  and Instagram, and mainly because of security issues. Google plan to only close the “consumer” version of G+ but not the “Enterprise” users. If you had set up your G+ profile when you signed up with Google (or Gmail), then you would most likely had received an email from Google in June this year. That email contained a link inviting you to download your content from Google. If you can’t find the email, no problems, you can go to Google Takeout and download your achive from there. If you didn’t do anything with your Google+ profile, then you can ignore it until it goes away. For more information about using G+ with your G-Suite, go…

It is sad but true, we have been meaning to update our website for a long , long time. It’s the price we have paid for in making our clients always come first, before our own self-promotion. Time for a new look Now it is time for a new look. It has been 4 years since we last built our own website and since then our business has evolved, the internet has evolved, and technology has evolved. That is too long for a website overhaul. Why? Everything in the digital world looks and works much better now. So, we have to renovate,…

Some months ago we started trialling Wordfence as a security measure for our own websites and our client’s websites to evaluate the efficacy of this software service. Having this installed on a website is the equivalent of the antivirus software on your computer that protects against malicious hackers gaining access and doing really horrible things than can damage your website, your company’s reputation, or your wallet by holding your site to ransom. Wordfence compiles a list of intruder countries, IP addresses and uses advisories and clever defence techniques to keep your site protected beyond just using a username and password. At this point, we have installed and provided this service for free, but later we will be offering a yearly fee for those who wish to retain this service in the future (to be announced). Do the 2 Step While we believe that a strong password is important (you can read Google’s advice here),…

There are many good payment gateway options available today, but we use and recommend PayPal because we know it is a convenient, safer way of paying for goods or services as a customer. For a business, it is also a great way to get paid by your clients or customers, and with PayPal’s Buyer Protection Guarantee to help protect you from fraud, it is an extra assurance that your identity and money is protected. Another feature of PayPal payments that many people do not realise is that you don’t have to have a PayPal account to make a payment with PayPal! – you simply enter your credit card details as you normally would, and PayPal will send a confirmation email to you. Though Wisefocus Designs does accept direct bank deposits, we find that PayPal’s features, like email payment receipt confirmation, invoice creation, recurring payments, and the ability to manually record payments makes it…
