Introducing SEND+PLUS
Do you have a website? Of course you do? Did you know it might be breaking the law! Probably not!

Cookies are generally harmless and very simple text files that are placed on your computer when you visit a website. They are used to store small bits of information and if you have a website then it is highly likely that it uses cookies. Usually they store visitors preferences, usernames, and general non-personal information.

It has now become UK law that all websites must comply with certain requirements with regards to setting any cookies or similar tracking techniques on a visitor's computer.

To comply all you need to do is:
  1. Notify users that your website uses cookies.
  2. Give them clear and transparent information about what cookies are set, where they originate and what data they hold.
  3. Give the users a clear opportunity to opt in or out of the usage of cookies by your website.
There is a large fine for non-compliance but it is highly unlikely this will be applied unless you are ignoring the legislation and using sinister cookies. iDM have developed a very easy off the shelf solution that will work with most websites.

We can apply this to your website at a limited offer price of only £125 + VAT*.

For more detailed information or to discuss any aspect of this new legislation then please give us a call on 01902 406410 or email richard@idmdesign.co.uk. Additional information can be found on the Information Commissioners Office website http://www.ico.gov.uk/

* This offer is valid until Friday 31st August after which the full price of £225 will be charged for this solution.

Styling You comes to iDM for design inspiration
The 3D animated blockbuster is a hugely popular film format. Why is that? One of the reasons is the medium allows a story to be told easily and with a more visual approach without any real-world restrictions.

There are many ways to show a product, sell a service, tell a story or provide instructions - one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways is using animation. Although iDM aren’t yet able to claim any Hollywood blockbusters, we are specialists in using 3D modelling and animation to do all of these and more for many of our existing clients.

The animations we produce are all storyboarded, modelled and rendered in-house making the service extremely cost effective.

3D animation can help any business to:
  1. Sell a product online or offline
  2. Make presentations stand out
  3. Showcase a new product that hasn’t yet been made yet
  4. Easily explain how to use a product or service
  5. Add something special to your exhibitions, conferences or sales presentations
Once a movie has been produced it can be placed on your website, emailed, copied on to DVDs, used on Facebook, YouTube and many other types of social media.

There may be many areas where a 3D animation can help in the promotion of your business so give us a call on 01902 406410 or email richard@idmdesign.co.uk to explore the possibilities.

Some previous animations can be viewed here and 3D modell examples can be viewed here.

Summer is here... don’t let your marketing go on holiday too! iDM Design marketing
Social media has become more and more a large part of our everyday world both in and out of the workplace. So perhaps it’s about time to stop updating your status with “Just accidentally put sugar in my tea LOL!” and think about creating a Facebook page for your business.
Not only does Facebook help you reach and interact with your customers and potential audience, the use of Facebook advertising is growing and now accounts for over 80% of Facebook’s revenue. When it comes to online advertising everyone traditionally turns to Google but Facebook is currently a more cost effective and highly efficient alternative

You can easily create a branded Facebook page, share it with people and use targeted advertising according to gender, age, likes, interests, relationship status, workplace and education.

We wouldn’t suggest you ditch Google but it certainly might be worth considering Facebook as well. Give us a call and we can come up with suggestions on how Facebook might be worth a ‘Like’ for you and your business.

"Oh no, I’ve just knocked over my tea LOL......"
