At Flamin’ Fig, web design is dear to our hearts so we feel the need to help you out with website basics 101, thus assisting your success online…

THE COMPONENTS OF A WEBSITE

To most people  a website is just a number of pages (representing a word document) with links connecting them all together but this can’t be further from the truth! To top it off most websites now are pre-fabricated boxes stacked on top of one another with no life, just structure and copious amounts of animation! Websites without a targeted audience and a brand or psychological strategy behind them are just pages on the web that ultimately frustrate the unaware website owner and users of them.


Before a website even gets built there is a lot of research and understanding that goes into what needs to be presented to engage the targeted audience. With this knowledge and the understanding of what a website is, how to construct it,  how to give it life and how to magnetise the ones you want to engage, you can see that a website becomes an online strategy converting potential clients to a faithful “wanting” tribe.


This is what we do at Flamin’ Fig when we create your Theme Kit Template. It has an end-purpose and the beautiful thing is that you can still tweak or further fine-tune it to make it completely yours and be on-brand. We also help and give you a foundational understanding of how to get your website in front of your ideal client through giving what search engines wants via your website’s SEO.

DOMAIN NAME

HOSTING & SSL

The concept of a domain name is best explained through the following analogy… You have a block of land but before you bought the land it was registered and was given a number in a named street. The block number can exist without anything being built on the  land much as a domain name can exist without a website. It’s there but there’s nothing to see yet.


In other words, your domain name is like the address of your property. It’s how people know where to come for a visit.


When purchasing a domain name you purchase it from a registrar which complies to ????  When purchasing a domain name you don’t take ownership of it but you can rent it for as long as you want to. If you allow your domain name to lapse on renewal it goes back to the open-market where anybody else will be able to rent it.


You can have several domain names, but the most important thing is try to purchase a domain name that supports your personal brand or business name.

To continue with the analogy,  the property itself represents hosting. A house is built on the property much as a website is built on the hosting platform.


Like your domain name, your hosting package is renting space on the internet where eventually your website will sit . A host is made up of hundreds of server-boxes (or data-centres) connected to the web 24/7, 365 days of the year. The data-centre can be situated anywhere in the world; ours is situated in Australia.


An important part of hosting is keeping your data safe and especially the data your customers pass on to you for communications or sales. That’s why we also supply an SSL Certificate which securely encrypts any communication from your website to you, plus it also prevents the major search engines like Google demoting your website’s ranking which is a given nowadays - part of their policy now.

DESIGN WITHOUT CODE

In our opinion the web has become a complexity of code and server-side script that is creating a world of box-model websites lacking expression and creativity... what if there was another way!…

The Sparkle App That Is Right For You

5 Day Website Launch Challenge

When you move across to the Sparkle App website, Duncan & his Team will offer you 1 free option, and  3 buy-in options which cover the different levels of functionality that Sparkle offers.


Our theme kits  range in page numbers  and functionality. We more-so tend to use the advanced Sparkle features  especially with our Advance Theme Kit Templates. We therefore recommend Sparkle Pro one-off purchase or Sparkle Pro subscription.

This will be a big help to all our newbies! The challenge will get you to understand how to use the Sparkle App, personalise or on-brand your theme kit template, some tips and tricks such as working with SEO, and the publishing of your website to your hosting server for the world wide web to see!


This project is in the making; notification of launch will be in our Flamin’ Fig newsletter.

TIPS & TRICKS

TRICKS & TIPS

I HAVE USED WORDPRESS. IS SPARKLE SIMILAR?

WordPress is a fully fledged database driven blog with layers to make the web pages happen, Sparkle is not like that. Sparkle is a macOS based application allowing for a free-flowing web design experience - no database or plug-ins!


I’M A WEB DESIGNER. CAN I USE SPARKLE WITHOUT TOUCHING CODE?

Our Flamin’ Fig theme kit templates have been created on the Sparkle app web design platform; we have not touched any code to make our fantastic products. The great thing is that the application allows you to freely design, not stack boxes!


I”M A WEB DESIGNER AND I ALSO LIKE USING CODE TO FURTHER PERSONALISE MY WEBSITES

Although you don’t have to touch any code when designing a website, Sparkle does have the ability for you to add code snippets to build out your site, for example, with a booking form, shopping cart, adding Disqus, etc…


I KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF COPYRIGHT FREE IMAGES, BUT WHERE CAN I GET THEM?

The Sparkle app that we use to build out our theme kits has two stock image websites built into the application. This allows users of our themes on the Sparkle application access to professional click and drag copyright free images!


HOW CAN I GET SEARCH ENGINES LIKE GOOGLE TO FIND MY SITE?

The Sparkle App has got you covered! Our theme kits are built for intended markets, but after you place your content and tweak the colours to represent your brand then you can go about adding meta-tags, titles, and alt tags. You can also verify your website with Google, and make an entry to have Google Business find your site reflecting your business position on Google Maps, your industry, opening times, etc… plus add your social media metadata.


DO I NEED PHOTOSHOP FOR THE IMAGES I PUT IN?

You would only need Photoshop or Affinity Photo if you want to do something fancy with your images. The final images you drop into your theme kit will be all effectively optimised for the web when you click the “Publish” button.

YOUR MOBILE LAYOUT CAN BE TOTALLY DIFFERENT AND AIMED AT YOUR MOBILE USER

Our theme kits are based on mobile adaptive technology which means your mobile layout can be mobile user-centric


YOUR WEBSITE CAN BE TOTALLY SEARCHABLE WITH NO DATABASE

That’s right, no database. If you want, you can click a button, add a couple of tick boxes and your website is totally searchable.


HANDLING PRIVACY IS SUPER SIMPLE BECAUSE IT’S ALL BUILT INTO SPARKLE

There is a feature that you click to activate and your website will comply with laws regarding tracking and data collection, including the Europeans GDPR. if you are dealing with European clients you need to know about GDPR.

Hi… We are Flamin' Fig! * We are here to support the eco-conscious world 100%, and better serve the ecopreneurs and ethically-conscious businesses who are moving our society into a better way of living in harmony with our planet. * We are in fantastic times!!! :) As of yesterday the summer solstice 21.12.2020 Saturn conjunct Jupiter 0 degrees in the sign Aquarius. The Age of Aquarius is upon us but it has been influencing society over a number of decades (transition) already but it is full steam ahead now and transformation is now upon us as a “human society” and Aquarius is big on this! * We are moving into decades of unexpected surprises, contradictions, revolutions, advancements in technology that will have us questioning science which becomes the new “God” narrative. Technology and human will merge with extreme rejection and acceptance, and moving consciousness from a human to machine will be attempted. Technology will be used to avert the 6th extinction event as the human race wakes up and the planet becomes a fitting priority. And you know what… governments as we know it will be very different as Aquarious demands a fairer world for all. * And Star Trek… Well what can I say as we start to explor our solar system with a new found propulsion system, but the big one I see is a totally new form of energy we discover to power all our needs and beyound! We will live a “greener” world, a “greener” narrative! :) * So tell me, what is your take on our new Aquarius epoch journey?… * ** *** #flaminfig #byflaminfig #webdesign #templates #themes #userinterface #responsivedesign #creativepreneur #creativestudio #creativedesign #websitedesign #landingpages #ui  #theplanets #greenstudio #greenbrand #greenhosting #ethical #ethicaldesign #aquarius #ethicalbrands #ethicalbusiness #ethicalwebdesign #ageofaquarius #specialwords #flowers #websitebuilder #sustainable #launcestontasmania *** ** * [Image created by Eberhard Grossgasteiger]

We are not restricted to the box-model allowing for very individual websites that standout from the crowd. But in saying that we can also go down the box-model layout if we choose to so we have the best of both worlds! :) * ** *** #flaminfig #byflaminfig #webdesign #templates #themes #userinterface #responsivedesign #creativepreneur #creativestudio #creativedesign #websitedesign #landingpages #ui  #themekits #greenstudio #greenbrand #greenhosting #ethical #ethicaldesign #ethicalliving #ethicalbrands #ethicalbusiness #ethicalwebdesign #spring #specialwords #flowers #websitebuilder #sustainable #launcestontasmania *** ** *
So I have my new Apple iPhone 11 Pro and I was trying out the camera… * And compared to my iPhone 7 all what I can say is WOW //as his jaw drops to the ground! The quality and clarity is just crazy but all so good! :) * The morning Spring sun was streaming into my studio glistening of the crystals and I just could not resist! It is the original take without filters, image manipulation, or tweaks. The colours just outright pop! * All you esoteric eco-conscious souls out there… What do use to take your beautiful images? * ** *** #flaminfig #byflaminfig #webdesign #templates #themes #userinterface #responsivedesign #creativepreneur #creativestudio #creativedesign #websitedesign #landingpages #ui  #themekits #greenstudio #greenbrand #greenhosting #esoteric #crystallight #crystal #ethicalbrands #ethicalbusiness #ethicalwebdesign #spring #specialwords #flowers #websitebuilder #sustainable #launcestontasmania *** ** *
