What is a widget?

As defined by my favorite online encyclopedia – Wikipedia: (Widgipedia – Wiki Widgets)
A widget is anything that can be embedded within a page of HTML, i.e. a web page. A portable chunk of web. A widget adds some content to that page that is not static. Generally widgets are third party originated, though they can be home made. Widgets are also known as modules, snippets, and plug-ins.

Why do I need widgets on my website?

Widgets can be fun tools that you can add to your website to educate, entertain, inform and otherwise engage your audience. They are little bits of code that can be customized and simply added to your website to add spice and content and allow your website to appear up and coming and exciting instead of back dated and boring.

By simply adding a few widgets to your website you can add a pizazz where before there was little to none. They are embedded right into your website so that when someone uses your widget, they are not leaving your website and instead are interacting with it. If you have 8 seconds to get a website visitors attention, then widgets for your website can help!

  • "You will find her kind, generous and very very talented"

    March, 2009

    To anyone reading this: First let me explain that I am a very difficult and direct man – who has a very clear vision of what I want and how I want it done – a hard taskmaster if you will. So I had worked with a few “webdesigners” before who never seemed to listen to my ideas and concepts.  Char did, she translated my concepts chicken scratches and post its into my vision.  Being particular on a product is important when dealing with image so I always find it hard when people don’t get that.  Why put up something that isn’t the very best? Its kinda like going to the grocery store in your pajamas – just not the right thing to do.  Well Char took my ideas to the next level. So from the ground up, she repositioned me, she tolerated my constant what-ifs, how about that’s and sheesh you can do its ~ to create I believe the best mortgage website around www.awesomerates.com. You will find her kind, generous and very very talented just make sure you give her plenty of time and space to build you the masterpiece you want. I have referred her out and will continue to do so regularly my business needs her talents, as will yours.

  • "I can’t recommend her more highly"
    You need more exposure on the internet and Charra Bennett is the answer. Her website re-design was elegant and sophisticated.  She incorporated my wants and wishes while guiding me to the look a feel that was user friendly and truly eye catching.  I also utilized her extensive talents in Search Engine Optimization and Wow!  I am on the first page of Google Searches for my key areas of business.  I can’t recommend her more highly.

  • "I highly recommend Char and her team for getting your site up and running and looking great!"
    When realizing it was time to get my own web page out there and get some top SEO done on the site, I began a search. It was pretty easy for me, I think I typed in Google “real estate web site design search optimization”. The top person that showed up was Char. I figure if she can be top in that search, then My Site Needs Her! Upon calling her, within five minutes of our phone call, I felt as if I were talking with a friend I’d known for a long time. She asked me who had referred her to me, and I said Google. She was surprised since most of her business is referrals. I’ve been pleasantly surprised at her professionalism in getting my site done. When I’ve had questions she is there to answer them. Because I enjoy being hands on, she has taught me how to update my site making minor tweaks to what she has already done. She also promises to get me on the first page of Google within six months. Never know how long I might be there, but if I follow her advice it will be nice to have some leads come in! I highly recommend Char and her team for getting your site up and running and looking great! Feel free to check out the site AustinHomeSearch.net and if you or anyone you know, wants to buy, sell or invest in Austin, now is the time!
  • "One of the smartest decisions I ever made!"
    I hired Charra to develop a complex, customized real estate website and I can attest it was one of the smartest decisions I ever made.  As a person who spent over 20 years working for hi tech companies before embarking on a career in real estate, I have worked with many, many developers over the years and Charra embodies all the qualities that makes her one of the very best I’ve ever worked with:  extreme attention to detail and quality in all her deliverables, laser focus on customer service, flexibility and responsiveness to change requests, the willingness to always go the extra mile, ability to work under pressure and meet deadlines….and all with a tremendous attitude and good cheer!  For anyone looking to find a developer that will truly work with you to understand your wants and needs and help you create the website of your dreams, I strongly suggest you contact Charra!
