How to advertise your business differently

Reading Time: 4 minutes

We all are creative. Why? Just because without creativity it is almost impossible to establish  a business. In the world of the cut-throat competition thinking outside of the box is essential.

Lots of you have hobbies or even already jobs. Or in planning to launch its own brand or to commercialize finally what you are doing. But did you think how to advertise your business properly? And it is not about Facebook Ads Manager and billboards.

Kavyar – it is the platform with lots of magazines that provide the opportunities to advertise your business. Here I need to mention that this platform is relevant only for those who have its own magazines, brands, online businesses where is possible to put an advertisement, or you are a photographer, makeup artist, stylist, model, the CEO of model agency, the CEO of production agency or you are a producer of campaigns. It is all about creative people or owners of fashion and advertising businesses.

What does «Kavyar» provide?

  1. A huge range of magazines to be published in. Let’s consider, that I’m an owner of the newly born fashion clothing brand. Then I invite a producer and discuss with him or her an upcoming campaign. Then producer gathers the whole team of photographer, makeup artist etc. Then we conduct a successful campaign. Then, how to advertise? As the owner of the newly born brand, definitely I don’t have a huge team with marketing specialist, for example. But I know about this platform. Here we go: just to choose the magazine that is appropriate for your campaign (style). But the most tricky thing here is that not all submissions can be accepted. There you may see paid and free options. Even if you pay for the advertisement in the printed or digital magazine, there is no guarantee that your submission will be accepted. If not, you will get the full refund. After paid option you will get the feedback as soon as possible, after free submission you should wait some days or weeks to get the answer if your submission is accepted.
  2. Motivation. To be published in magazine can be beneficial even for the manager or for the CEO. However, to achieve this goal you have to have really qualitative content. If your campaign is done with professional tram, editors of the magazines will definitely accept you.
  3. Feedback. The only one source of improvement. Here you can find your favorite magazine and ask for the feedback on your portfolio or campaign. This option is always must be paid, however, the price of it usually less than 20$. Little price, but huge development. Just submit, and editors will assess your work carefully and strictly.
  4. Portfolio. When customer sees that your brand is published in magazines or it is just your service, he or she will definitely identify you as a stylish brand or as an expertise.
  5. Recognition.
  6. Possibility of being caught by more successful brands that can offer you a collaboration.
  7. Low prices for the huge improvement. Here everything depends on the brand name of the magazine, that’s why prices are different. You can pay nothing and be accepted or you can pay 60-350$ for the guaranteed submission. To come back to the 1 point, if magazine doesn’t like your campaign, it will not be accepted even if you pay, however if they like it, you will be calmer by faster response. It is also business for them. At the very beginning we don’t have finances for ads in «Vogue», but we need to create a BRAND, and this platform is the best solution.
  8. Strict deadline. You can improve time management skills.
  9. Advertisement. Lots of people who buy these magazines or just watch them online will see your brand name.

Usually you have to wait till the approval from the magazines for weeks or even months at best. At worst they just don’t answer you. And you never know when is a deadline or what is the topic of an upcoming issue. With «Kavyar» it works differently.

From the point of view of the business, owners of the Kavyar gave an opportunity to the magazines to earn money. So they established connections with their editors and offered such a possibility to be at this platform, but to take the commission. Kavyar gathers all the data as well as magazines: pictures, interviews, gmails, team credits, instagrams and payment credits as well. Magazines earn, platform earns and customers get what they want afterwards : recognition, good portfolio, consequently, they attract new customers.

Thats the aim of the platform.

Try to find more creative approach from the marketing perspective, it is highly appreciated in the world nowadays.

Would it be a trend in 2016 ?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

In the world of web design life does not stand still. New ideas, techniques, tools and approaches appear almost every day. In web design, as well as in any other sphere of activity – for those interested in the subject and intends to understand it, you need to keep an eye on and watch what happens.

Personally, I think that “trending” of web design is very interesting as for well known designers as for new entrepreneurs. The goal of this article is to offer not only the designer of sites, but also the most modern patterns, each one of you could easily make a beautiful and professional site a trendy solution.

2015 gradually coming to an end, so let’s talk about what will be important in the near future. 

Good news

Text + Graphics = Love

Prepare to be that designers will use a text made up of graphic elements, images, textures and geometric shapes. Typography has always been considered an important part of web design, and with the growth of the technical capabilities of its role will only increase.

Web design: customer-oriented

To make a good site, you need to understand what the audience wants. The idea is not new, but are beginning to discuss it very deeply and seriously only now. The point is that the designer should provide the client uses the site, and do everything that he was the most clear and comfortable. Content and images must involve everyone, but first of all – representatives of a specific target audience.

All the attention to the content

A good way to emphasize the importance of communication – to put it right in the middle of the page and add a striking image or homogeneous background. This method is ideal for those occasions when you want to focus on the short statement.

Blocks content

If the statement is not one thing, it makes sense to divide the page into several large blocks – is still relevant. The blocks must not be such as to Pintereste and wide – on the entire screen. Researches would like to draw your attention to the fact that each unit can be decorated in its own style. This gives designers greater freedom – you can not worry about the visual hierarchy.

Bad news

Very long sites

The popularity of mobile interfaces and Facebook led to the fact that all started to make a long scrolling page. The idea itself is not bad, especially if you know when to stop. Now we regret that some sites are too long. The most common errors of their creators is infinite scrolling, love heavy animation effects and inability to structure content.

Securely hidden menu

You could not help but notice that the familiar menu navigation was reduced to a single icon, which opens when you click. On the screens of mobile devices, where little space is important and every pixel, it is really convenient, but on the ordinary – not always. Often, people do not see this icon, and does not understand how he go from one section to another. The golden rule of design says – avoid unnecessary complications. That is, do not hide the menu and do not force the user to search for it.

Too many layers

The text over the picture, and the picture – over the motley heterogeneous background. Do you think anybody wants to understand this chaos? Let’s agree to comply with the order. It’s easy to get started, you can get rid of superfluous elements arranged in two or three layers.

Unnecessary entry

Modern sites have a serious drawback – they are very “heavy”. Sometimes, instead of reducing the amount of content and thereby increase the speed of loading, their owners camouflage problem by adding an introductory welcome page. While the user is viewing the intro, site-heavyweight quietly loaded. What is the result? As a result, you do not make friends with the visitor, but the opposite – pushes him away, creating an additional obstacle. Output – safely remove all unnecessary.

Some “horror”
Enumerating applications

It’s great that the site you can add any third-party application, but there are limits. Please do not get carried away. Understand that these applications work on different people. Each of them – his own style, which is often not identical with the style of your site. Excessive application will not lead to anything good, honestly. The advice – pick one or two of the most necessary, and to confine them.
