Would You Build Your Own Car

Would You Build Your Own Car?

It’s a strange thought, isn’t it? Personally, I wouldn’t know where to start! There are so many little details and considerations that go into all the moving parts that make up an automobile.

That being said, even if someone gave me a DIY car kit and told me that all I had to do was add the steering wheel, seats, “Hello Kitty” seatbelts, awesome new headlights, and all the little flourishes that made me “me”, would it even be roadworthy?

Sounds pretty risky, and the RAC would probably laugh at me.

Wait, what’s this got to do with the web?
Right, yes, sorry.

The risk involved with building your own car is similar (I suppose) to building a website.

You could build your own website using any number of web builders these days, but is that what you do for a living? Do you know all the little pitfalls related to security, usability, accessibility, browser (in)compatibility, CSS, HTML, PHP, <include excruciatingly long list of buzzwords and terms here>…

No? I’m not a betting man, but I would wager that what you’re best at is running your business, and helping your customers. If you start devoting valuable time to building a website, have you compromised time you could’ve spent on other parts of your business?

5 Professional Resolutions to Try This Year

5 Professional Resolutions to Try This Year

We had a good break over the holidays here at Cybera Digital, and now we’re getting back into the swing of things!

We have some exciting new projects to launch, and a few other bits and pieces on the go, but it’s hard to achieve any of it and find that New Year enthusiasm without our strategy sessions and some good old-fashioned goal-setting!

Since our process has worked for us so far, we thought we’d share some concepts with you so that you could benefit from them too!

1. Strategy, strategy, strategy!
When we want to re-evaluate where we’re heading as a business, we always run a strategy session for ourselves. We generally do about 2 per year, and they always help re-focus and re-imagine how we see Cybera Digital helping our customers moving forward, and ways in which we can improve.

2. Setting realistic goals
As part of our strategy session we figure out what our goals are, and prioritise them by first determining how desirable the goal is, and then how achievable it is. This helps us to set realistic goals that we can achieve in the short-term, while still keeping an eye on our medium and long term goals.

Achieving your goals can sometimes be overwhelming, so if you ever feel as though you’ve come across a goal that needs to be resolved but just feels too big, it’s important to consider breaking it up into smaller (more manageable) tasks.
