WWDC 2015: Extracting the Apple juice

This year’s WWDC took place on June 8th-12th in San Francisco and featured over 100 technical sessions, hands-on labs and the Apple Design Awards. As expected, Apple showcased updates to both its iOS and OSX operating systems, as well as Apple Pay and Apple Music. iOS 9 (the iPhone and iPad operating system) will be a leap forward in intelligence and performance compared to iOS 8, and interaction with Siri will be more advanced. Rather than the major design change in iOS 7, the movement to iOS 9 is mostly behind the scenes, improving efficiency, speed and actually taking up less room in the internal memory, which will be a relief for […]

Facebook Adds Messenger Encryption

Not too long ago Facebook added another security change by making the site accessible via Tor onion service and now the spotlight is on OpenPGP. In 1991 Phil Zimmermann created PGP (Pretty Good Privacy), which was created to scramble messages so that it can only be read by the intended recipient.  OpenPGP derived from PGP and is the most widely used email encryption standard. In order to encrypt and decrypt messages with OpenPGP you have to have a pair of keys. One is a public key that is available to the public and helps to encrypt the message, which can only be opened by the private key that is known privately by […]

Ecommerce and PCI Compliancy – Is your business at risk?

So what does that mean for your business? Well, it means that complex integrations between payment gateways and your ecommerce site are not normally necessary.  That’s good news for both cost and compliancy. The right solution for the vast majority of our clients is what we refer to as an ‘iFrame’. In simple terms, it means that as your customer checks out, they are actually taken to the Sage Pay site for their card processing. No card information is held on your server, SagePay take all the risk and you don’t have to worry about PCI compliance. Brilliant! The reality is that even large multinationals now use this method to transact payments […]

Facebook Marketing – The Decline of Unpaid Communications

Here at Webheads, we’ve always understood that Facebook marketing was really about remarketing rather than a front-line sales tool; and we help our clients to balance information, entertainment and marketing. Promotion shouldn’t be the lion’s share, or the audience will switch off, never to return. So a careful mix of shared articles, general information, fun, competitions and sales. Sounds great, and it was for a while, so what went wrong? “Why is it that I have 3,000 fans but my posts are being seen by only 150 people?” is the cry we hear time and time again from companies that manage their own pages. Well, the answer can be found in that […]

Periscope App Social media broadcasting

Periscope is a brand new live broadcasting app that is taking the world by storm. The makers say that they wanted to build the closest thing to teleportation; so that people could see the world through the eyes of the people living in it. Whether that’s from the viewpoint of a protester in Ukraine, or watching a sunrise from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia. Can it beat its closest rival Meerkat? In just a few weeks both have seen celebrity uptake. But what can it do for businesses like yours?

How we get the “Feel Good Factor”

A couple of years ago, the Samaritans ran a poll amongst workers to see what the most fulfilling part of a job was. Relationships came out on top. It’s pretty obvious really. If you get on with the people you work with, and those you work for, life is going to be pretty sweet. And that’s how we work here at Webheads. We have a great team who work together to bring life to collaborative visions we have with our clients. There’s no better feeling than a job well done.

Snapchat Marketing

As the world was introduced to the first Snapchat résumé this week and a timely review as China’s biggest e-commerce company, Alibaba, is putting £140m ($200m) into Snapchat. We wanted to take a look at how brands can harness the power of this rapidly-growing app; a favourite of teenagers across the world and market their brand on Snapchat. First launched in July 2011, Snapchat was the brainchild of Stanford university students Evan Speigel and Reggie Brown. The idea of an app with photos that would appear on the screen for only a few seconds didn’t go down very well with the rest of their Product Design class.

Travel is an exciting process – from the first excitement of choosing where to go, perusing Google Earth and finally getting on that plane!
