1 – Intro to Corporate Identity                                                           

How does a company and organization project a coherent identity that’s as recognizable as a human personality? Lesson One explores the history, purpose, and possibilities of corporate identity. The lesson presents the concept of experienced value and how it relates to visual design and includes case studies of CBS and BMW.

Project – Logo design

2 – Design and Corporate Strategy

Where do company logos come from and how do they evolve? Lesson Two looks at the reasons for identity overhauls and how to make the most of change. Case studies of British Airways, Texaco, and others are discussed to explore the connection between company identities and changes in national and worldwide consciousness.

Project – Logo Redesign

3 – Designing a Corporate Brand

What skills do you need to design a great company logo or communicate with a corporate client? These characteristics will be discussed in Lesson Three so you can work professionally and with the needs of clients and consumers in mind. A case study documenting the evolution of the BBC identity will be explored.

Project – Product Line Logo

4 – Design Process and Methodology

Lesson Four focuses on the first of three critical phases of company design. Methods of solving important problems will be addressed, which is key to successfully handling the actual company identity creation. You will also explore a case study of NSB, a Norwegian railway company that decided to modernize its identity, only to encounter a world of problems in need of solutions.

Project – Problem phase

5 – From Solution to Evaluation

Every problem has a solution, and in this lesson we present the “solution phase” of the design process with a focus on generating effective ideas, overall strategies, and the all-important design manual. The lesson wraps up with a look at the “evaluation phase” in which solutions are put to the test.

Project – Evaluation phase

6 – Product and Corporate Design

A company logo is merely cosmetic without a strong product to back it up, and we’ll look at the role the product plays in a company design in this lesson. Specifically, you’ll explore how identity is presented through product designs from Apple and Sony.

Project – Restaurant identity design

Certified Ethical Hacker Training- Cyber Security Courses in Nigeria- SOUTECH Web Consuts

What makes the Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course different from other courses in the market?

The Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course prepares candidates for the CEH exam offered by EC-Council. The course focuses on hacking techniques and technology from an offensive perspective. The advanced security course is regularly updated to reflect latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, automated programs as well as defensive recommendations as outlined by experts in the field. The CEH body of knowledge represents detailed contributions from security experts, academicians, industry practitioners and the security community at large.

What is the Employment Value of CEH?

The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking program is primarily targeted at security professionals who want to acquire a well rounded body of knowledge to have better opportunities in this field. Acquiring a CEH means the candidate has a minimum baseline knowledge of security threats, risks and countermeasures. Organizations can rest assured that they have a candidate who is more than a systems administrator, a security auditor, a hacking tool analyst or a vulnerability tester. The candidate is assured of having both business and technical knowledge.

THE NEED OF WEBSITE DESIGN

The need of website design is based on the demand of websites.

A website is the single most important marketing tool for any business. It serves as a virtual equivalent of a physical business for the over 3 billion internet users. Think about it: when you want to learn more about a company, you typically turn to Google and search about the company and most times you eventually end up on their website. The same process happens when you are looking for products and services.

As a web development and marketing services company, whenever someone searches for Soutech Web Services, they’ll usually hit our website as the main source to learn about our services, our work, and about the team.

Now, for any organisation that offers services, users will certainly turn to past clients and case studies section of a website. So much information is gained by users browsing a website: what users see and read shapes the perception of the company or brand in the user’s decision-making. According to Statista, over 2 billion people are expected to buy goods and services online by the year 2019. So, having the best content on your website is important so that your website acts as your main marketing tool.

A well-built website should be mobile-responsive, and important aspect to consider based on the fact that it contribute in making a website the most important marketing tool as more and more users browse the web on smartphones (more than desktop usage now, according to Google). Any organisation that desire growth cannot afford to miss out on opportunities for new leads by not having a responsive website.

So there you have it – a website is the most important marketing asset, not just because it acts as a salesperson and a brand ambassador, but because it can be use to genuinely connect with potential customers, whether that’s through engaging content, mobile-responsive layout, or intelligent analytics and personalization. If a website isn’t hitting all these goals, that’s all right. It’s definitely an interactive process, and few if any websites can accomplish everything they need to right out of the gate. It is imperative that one should add these goals to an overall inbound marketing strategy and work on executing them, by doing so, there is assurance that a business will continue to grow. That is what all organisation wants “Grow” hence the will seek the services of someone with the ability to activate that growth through digital presence which is where you will come in as a website designer.

Internet marketing is all-hour based. Your marketing campaigns run 24 hours a day , 7 days a week. you aren’t constrained with opening hours, neither are you to consider overtime payment for staff. The availability or reachability of your online ads copy campaign and offer cannot be affected by international time variation. Anytime an individual opens a computer connected to the internet, S/he’s tendency to see your marketing campaign as opposed to usual traditional offline marketing. Customers search the products offered at their convenient time as long as they like – no hasten, no fear of closing. The users own the opening and closing hours for shopping.

Convenience

Internet marketing gives you the preference to be open for business around the clock without worrying about business resumption hours or overtime payments for staff. Offering your products on the Internet is also convenient for customers. They can browse your online store at any time and place orders when it is convenient for them.

Reach

Overcoming barriers of distance is really easy by marketing on the Internet. You can sell goods in any part of the country without setting up local shops, widening your target market. You can also build an export business without opening a network of distributors in different countries. However, if you want to sell internationally, you should use localization services to ensure that your products are suitable for local markets and comply with local business regulations. Localization services include translation and product modification to reflect local market differences.

Internet Marketing is Cost-Effective

Internet marketing involves less or no start-up-capital. Starting a blog, social media or email marketing require less investment compared to traditional marketing which greatly lies on the factors of production – Land, capital, labour, entrepreneur. These are not prerequisite to online marketing and translate to reduced cost of production, advertising and marketing since no money is incurred on staffing, procurement of business premises and middlemen. We all know that I cost a huge amount running traditional marketing like newspaper, radio, television and banner, while fraction of such can run PPC advertising on Facebook, Google and other PPC companies.

Personalization

Internet marketing enables you to personalize offers to customers by building a profile of their purchasing history and preferences. One can make targeted offers that reflect interests or prospect simply by tracking the web pages and product information that the prospects visits. The information available from tracking website visits also provides data for planning cross-selling campaigns so that you can increase the value of sales by customer.

Relationships

Provision of important platform that builds relationship with customers and increasing customer retention levels comes from the internet. When a customer has purchased a product from your online store, you can begin the relationship by sending a follow-up email to confirm the transaction and thank the customer. A good way to maintain customer relationship is by emailing them regularly with special, personalized offers. You can also invite customers to submit product reviews on your website, helping to build a sense of community.

Social

Have you notice the growing importance of social media lately? One thing that will make you take advantage of that is Internet marketing. A group of consumers that responded most strongly to the influence of social networks generated increased sales of around 5 according to a paper by Harvard Business School Executive Education website, on a highlight regarding the link between social networking and online revenue growth. You can take advantage of this type of influence by incorporating social networking tools in your Internet marketing campaigns.

Residual and Continuity Effect

Inheriting residual effect is one of the great benefits of online marketing. years after the marketing campaign to a content or products is over, the content on websites and blogs remains functional and working to promote your products and services. E-book marketing produces long-term and viral effects after the production. For instance, If you run a campaign to improve traffic to your landing page, the residual power of such marketing remains effective years after the campaign might have been stopped.

Automation Versus Delegation

Another advantage of online marketing is the power of easy, one-mouse-click automation. Marketers often leverage the benefit of delegating best hands for various tasks in traditional offline business and marketing while internet marketing has a better time-savvy opportunity. That is the opportunity to get every aspect of your business fully automated. You search for the best tool for your marketing campaign and all is done. You have the option of spending your time in doing something else.

Convenient, Easy and Quick Service Delivery

Marketing online is incredibly convenient. It has easy accessibility. Consumers doesn’t incur any cost in reaching the internet markets anywhere in the world. This removes the cost of transportation to purchase goods across borders. Importers really enjoy this bonus as they make the online order right in the comfort of their home. Delivery process of sale items can easily be tracked online. Consumers get digital downloadable products on a click of mouse. What better experience is beyond shopping in the comfort of one’s room with a bottle of juice on a table for refreshment.

How to get to Google 1st page- Google Number one (1) Position Techniques- SOUTECH Guide

ADDING YOUR BUSINESS TO GOOGLE PLACES.

Adding your business or services on Google Maps enhance online visibility even if your business is entirely mobile or online. If you aren’t operating a brick-and-mortar storefront, though, you may not want to post an address — and you don’t have to. Adding your business on Google Maps is simply done by setting up a profile in Google Places for Business. During this process, you can choose to suppress your street address and list service areas instead.

CREATE A GOOGLE PLACES PROFILE

First you must have a Google account, sign in to Google Places for Business with your valid Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one for free.

Your business phone number is a primary contact information especially if you are running a mobile or online business. You will need to provide your business phone number for easy identification of your business or services.

Also needed is some Basic Information which includes your business address. Google will require that you submit a valid mailing address for your business. You can disguise this address from searchers, however, you can also use a different criterion like “service areas” to define your location on Google Maps.

MORE ABOUT YOUR SERVICES

Choosing the “service areas” option means your business serves customers at their locations” in your chosen service areas. This option is available if you do not want your address to be listed. Off course, you will have to indicate the distance you can cover from one location if you offer mobile services.

The list of areas served option enables you to choose cities, states and countries you have or you serve, a good way of letting Google speak on your behalf.

Hours of operation, payment options, photos, videos and more can also be added to enhance visibility and inform your customers accordingly. Remember, your listing is advertising, so the more information you add to your profile, the more effective it will be.

VERIFICATION AND APPROVAL

Google will send you a personal identification number (PIN), to the mailing address you choose, of which you will use to complete the verification process in order to properly publish your listing.

One Google business listing is all you need irrespective of the numerous services and cities that you serve. You can always update services areas.

If you have a website already, I recommend listing your business or services on Google as the first step in SEO, otherwise you should really consider having a website for your business.

Content Development and consistent blogging in a systematic and scientific way will get you to google no 1 position.

Why you need a professional website in Nigeria- Abuja, PortHarcourt Services- SOUTECH

REASONS WHY YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS A PROFESSIONAL WEBSITE!

  1. YOUR SMALL BUSINESS WILL GAIN CREDIBILITY

It is very obvious that consumers use the internet more often to search for the products or services they need. Your small business will gain credibility by having a website. Without one, potential customers will go to your competitors that do. Let’s say you have a website already, well, it is important to have it professionally redesigned in order to provide your business with a professional image which will inspire even greater confidence. For home-based businesses, this is particularly beneficial since you do not have a store front to promote your products or services.

  1. A WEBSITE SAVES YOU MONEY

Do not think that you cannot afford a professional website as a small business owner, what you cannot do is not to afford. Although the cost of designing a website varies, once it’s up and running, a website for a small business generally costs under N100,000 a year and, in some cases, as little as N40,000. Compared with the cost of a newspaper ad, when you consider the potential market you can reach with a website, it is a very cost effective way to promote your business.

  1. IT WILL ENABLE YOU TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS INFORMED

Think of your website as being your online brochure or catalogue. Updating information about your product and services is way much easier and quicker on a website than in print material, making it an effective way of letting your customers know about the arrival of new products, upcoming events, special promotions, or any new services you now offer.

  1. A WEBSITE MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO TARGET A WIDER MARKET

Whether you provide products or services, your website will provide an alternative location to sell them. As a retailer, having a website (eCommerce) is a great place to sell your products to a wider market; even services can be made available globally. Don’t think you’ll be able to sell your products or services online? Don’t forget, even cars and houses sell online!

  1. IT PROVIDES A PLATFORM WHERE YOU CAN SHOWCASE YOUR WORK

No matter what type of business you’re in, a website is a great place to showcase your work. By including a portfolio or image gallery, as well as testimonials about your work, you can demonstrate what makes your business unique.

  1. A WEBSITE SAVES YOU TIME

Having an online catalogue or portfolio saves you a lot of time which you will experience if providing information phone, face-to-face, in a brochure, or in emails. With an online catalogue you can provide lots of information about your products and services. Once your website launch, it is available to your customers indefinitely, saving you time. And what is time? Time is money!

  1. IT IMPROVES CUSTOMER SERVICE

Assuming you sell ecological friendly products and would like to share some guidelines and tips on how to recycle, or possibly you’re an accountant and decides to give your clients advice on how to simplify their bookkeeping practices. You can keep your customers up-to-date by including a (frequently asked questions) FAQ page, adding articles or uploading newsletters to answer all your customers’ questions.

The second half of 2017 is about to begin and all you do is sit down there counting your disappointments already? Oh, let me guess; you are still busy scouting offices with your resume. I must agree that applying for a wonderful job is beneficial, but why don’t you try a proposal instead? Chances of securing employment are smaller when you are just applying for a job like any other applicant, of course they are many to choose from. Believe it or not, it is a fact that chances are small for any reasonable boss to reject a proposal than an application. At least not when you propose a beneficial growth and cost effective marketing strategy to an organisation.

COST EFFECTIVE MARKETING STRATEGY?

Well, good for you if you have heard of marketing and know how it works, that makes it easier. But we are not talking about spending 4 years in the university to study marketing, no. We are talking of spending only 5 hours to acquire strategic skills that will make you become you own boss in digital marketing. You do not necessarily need to be a marketer or study marketing. In fact, it has nothing to do with your field of study. Becoming a Digital marketer is as easy as sharing a picture on social media, only that you will need to apply some special skills to achieve specific results.

WHY DO ORGANISATIONS NEED DIGITAL MARKETERS?

Simple, because the internet is there. Digital marketing has proven to be more effective than traditional marketing. For instance, it is cost effective in the sense that you do not necessarily need to spend a huge resource for one potential customer, unlike traditional marketing. Also, you can target your marketing to a specific group of people (Target Audience) who are likely to have interest in the product or service you are marketing. Digital marketing provides small and medium businesses the opportunity to compete and attract their share of targeted traffic. Sales and marketing processes that were previously available only to large corporations are now available to small companies due to digital marketing. Digital marketing also delivers conversion in the sense that success is being measured by percentage rate of incoming traffic and it’s converted into leads, subscribers and sales. So any organisation that wants a better return of investment (ROI), builds brand reputation, reach out to mobile consumers, earn customers’ trust and ensure online business survival will definitely want to listen to you when you mention digital marketing.

WHY SHOULD YOU LEARN THESE STRATEGIES?

The good thing is, you will become an important player to any prospective organisation that finds your skills useful. Digital marketing is a process; it is not a one-time event, so you are always needed. You can do digital marketing from anywhere so far there is a computer device and an internet connection. You can choose who you work with as well as decide to work for as many organisations as you deemed if you decide to freelance. Unlike traditional marketing, you do not need to market product and service to people on the streets. You can also set up your own Digital Marketing Company and use your built-up marketing lists as a key tool. So what do you say?

Tools to help you create amazing website on the go: SOUTECH website design training tips Abuja, Nigeria

Though WordPress might sound like a time-saver for most developers who are fans of fast deliveries, others find it not to be interestingly appealing especially “the new guys”. If you have installed WordPress for the first time after seeing some amazing works done with the CMS or just watch an interesting tutorial on using WordPress to customize pages, you should be wondering while at the “dashboard” – “where are the tools?”. Well, do not worry, they are just there. All you need to do is locate them. WordPress has a lot of plugins that can be used to add functionalities into a website and most of them are free.

Some of these plugins help in saving a lot of hassle and are easy to use, enabling us to build projects with great functionalities without having any coding knowledge. Different plugins have different functionalities and features as well. If you are a WordPress Advanced web designer, then you should already what kind of plugins you might want to use in delivering your project, otherwise, you might just get confuse on which to install. As a WordPress beginner, the following plugins will make it easier for you to accomplish your tasks.

Visual Composer ($34)

This is a wonderful plugin from WPbakery. It is an essential WordPress plugin that has multiple features and can be used as a page builder. I call this plugin the ultimate WYSIWYG. Visual Composer was released in May 2011 and since then it has massively affected the development of many WordPress themes. Many WordPress theme developers have benefited from this awesome plugin, which has not only boosted the sales of their themes but has made their work unique while making it easy for website builders to build custom pages. It is an SEO page building tool with over 45 content elements to play with, over 60 predefined layouts to choose and you can add them in seconds. It also has 40 unique grid design templates, over 150 exclusive 3rd party addons. It is a frontend and backend editor of which both are WYSIWYG with drag and drop features. The good thing is whatever you build with visual composer is responsive and mobile ready. With this plugin installed, your dream of becoming an amazing frontend web designer is more than halfway completed.

Securi ($200 per year)

It is no doubt that every web developer wants to stay as clean as possible with no vulnerabilities and downtime. Having records of hacked websites means bad news when it comes to bidding. Security must be a concern if you are going to build your websites using CMSs and when it comes to WordPress, it will be a painstaking to setup security measures. However, some developers had made this processes easier by developing plugins that take care of some CMSs security issues. Among these plugins is Securi, a website scanning plugin. Tasks securi performs includes cleaning websites that are infected with malware, blacklisted by Google, disabled by host and spam in search results. It also protects websites from DDoS, Brute Force and exploiting vulnerabilities. Generally, Securi detects attacks on your website, protect and backup your website, speed up your website and responds to threats.

Contact Form 7

Be it corporate website for a company, school portal or blog, you will always want a section where your visitors can be able to contact you. The easiest way to do such is to create a form which will enable them to send you a message directly. At some extent you may want to create a subscription form that will allow readers or visitors to subscribe to your blog or newsletter where you can be updating them about new articles or products. This is another process that required you having a coding skill in order to execute. But with contact form 7, you can even do better than some programmer and coders. All you need to do is add some few tags, set your emailing options with few clicks, get a generated short-code and it where you want the form to display. To learn more on how to use the contact form 7, I recommend you enrol for a Website Design training with Soutech Web Consult.

Slider Revolution (RevSlider) $25 Regular License

I must say I have used different sliders through my years of web designing, but Slider Revolution stands out from the other. Let me quote “it’s not just a slider, but the new way to deliver ideas” that is what themepunch said; the developers of this amazing plugin. And it is absolutely true. Over 2.5 million websites are being powered by RevSlider and it is a developer’s choice when it comes to sliders. It’s easy to use and customize. If you are a WordPress beginner, you should not miss installing this plugin that enables video slides, post slides and other custom slides including carousels that you can publish any in your website.

Using the above-mentioned plugins will definitely change your perspective of website design. If you install the right plugins and put them to use the right way you will end up building amazing websites with unlimited features and functionalities.

Ten Deadly Sins in Virtualization Security: cyber security tips and techniques- SOUTECH Ethical hacking training Nigeria

Ten Deadly Sins in Virtualization Security Virtualization brings manifold benefits to organizations
such as better hardware utilization, cost savings and  flexibility in business operations. However, this new technology with all of its added benefits still has inherent risks. Also, since virtualization is deployed
across computer-based systems, securing the environment is a key priority. This paper looks at the
ten deadly sins of virtualization security.

Virtualization refers to a framework, which allows multiple operating systems to share the
resources of a single underlying server, while at the same time keeping that operating
system isolated from the server. In other words, virtualization involves the sharing of a
common resource by multiple users. A virtualization layer is placed over a single physical
server. This layer hosts multiple virtual machines, and each virtual machine runs an
operating system1 and one or more applications.
The computer and information technology revolution have resulted in increased  dependencies on multiple workstations, servers, hardware devices, communication and network devices. This phenomenon has resulted in increased expenditures on IT infrastructure, and has also created new issues such as the need for adequate space requirements, cooling mechanisms, and of course, adequate power. This is where Virtualization comes in. Virtualization technology has introduced never before seen
benefits that have greatly reduced hardware costs, server consolidation, improved server utilization and lower maintenance costs.

Making cool cash online: smart insider secrets to making sales like a wizard- SOUTECH Tips, Techniques and Tools

WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE?

Just before you start walking tall and wearing that millionaire smile, let me explain. This is not your typical who wants to be a millionaire TV shows were Frank Edoho will ask you some question and you get the answers right to become a millionaire while the spectators cheered at you. Yeah in this program, we have targeted audience as spectators only that there will be no Frank or questions to answer.

HAVE YOU HEARD OF AFFILIATE MARKETING?

Affiliate marketing is a performance-based and how it works is simple. An existing business rewards one or more affiliates for each visitor or customer brought by the affiliate’s own marketing efforts. Technically, four core players are involved in this industry: the merchant (also known as ‘retailer’ or ‘brand’), the network (that contains offers for the affiliate to choose from and also takes care of the payments), the publisher (also known as ‘the affiliate’), and the customer. The market has developed in density, resulting in the development of a secondary tier of players, including affiliate management agencies, super-affiliates and specialized third party vendors.

This is one of the oldest forms of marketing whereby you refer someone to any online product and when that person buys the product based on your recommendation, you receive a commission.

WHAT HAS AFFILIATE MARKETING GOT TO DO WITH ME BE BECOMING A MILLIONAIRE?

It actually has a lot to do with you becoming a millionaire, for instance; you earn N1 as commission-based from any product you recommended, if 1 million Nigerians orders a product via your referral or affiliate link, you have automatically entitled a millionaire. Now I know you will be thinking “that was easy said”. Yeah, way so easy but it is not too good to be true, it is real and require some efforts to achieve. Eventually, the efforts will only cost you a three (3) days intensive training on Website Design and another three (3) days in Essential Digital Marketing training plus 30 days mentoring and support. You will learn how to use the underlying power of web presence to draw “targeted Audience” to you while embedding significant strategies that that will make you a millionaire into your affiliate business. Surprise? Please don’t be, what you never knew is that you can run a successful e-commerce business without carrying any inventory at all? In fact, it’s pretty straightforward to run a full blown online store without worrying about storing or shipping anything physical at all. Drop-shipping has been proven as one most effective way to carry out such e-commerce business. It is a typical online store where you take orders on your own website, but your vendor or distributor is responsible for shipping the product to the end customer.

LET ME GUESS YOU WANT TO ASK ME; HOW DO YOU START?

There are many online companies who sell products such as homeware, electronics, clothing, accessories, web-hosting spaces, or some other service, and they usually offer an affiliate program. For instance, Yuboss is an affiliate program by Yudala where a Youboss member gets products at a slightly cheaper rate, and also gets a commission for selling them through his/her affiliate link. You can simply sign up for any affiliate program and get your unique tracking link. Whenever you want to write about their products/service, all you need to do is simply use this special tracking affiliate link to recommend the company’s site, and if someone make an order via your link, you receive a commission.

HOLD ON, HOLD ONE, HERE COMES THE BIG BOOM

Before you start registering for affiliate programs and start sending your links to individuals, you need to know this hidden secret. First imagine, that Konga is not an e-commerce store, rather, an affiliate for other e-stores? Yeah, according to Philips consulting online shopping report of 2014, the following findings was made;

  • Warehouses are located in Lagos, but also operate from other major cities. In addition, it is common to have thousands of merchants scattered across the nation to facilitate service delivery.
  • On average, the leading online stores achieve about $2 million worth of transactions per week i.e approximately N1.3biilion per month.
  • Not less than 500 orders are placed in a day with each retailer (nationwide);
  • Currently, no fewer than 300 nationwide deliveries are made in a day with each retailer;
  • Items being returned to the online store are an infrequent occurrence; presently, no more than 20% of delivered items are returned to the seller;
  • Online merchants most often make use of their own delivery facilities and staff to convey items to customers; however, external couriers such as DHL, UPS and Fedex are sometimes used for out-of-state deliveries.
  • Over 38% Nigerians shop online with 43% Nigeria agrees that their in-store purchase has reduced since the introduction of online shopping in Nigeria.
  • Some major challenges faced by online retailers is poor customer service culture, city navigation and logistical issues, and under-stocked items.

NOW YOU KNOW WHERE I WAS HEADING

So let’s rephrase the question; what if you become one of the highest seller/reseller in e-commerce simply by participating in an affiliate program in a different concept. Take a look at www.buyallsoftwares.com. Buyallsoftwares.com is actually an e-store where you can purchase any type of software you want in Nigeria. You can have an e-store like buyallsoftwares.com where you can display products from different e-store you are affiliated with.

WAIT! FIRST THING FIRST

I understand you want to jump into affiliate marketing immediately, but there are skills you will need to in order to stand and remain standing tall.

Soutech Web Consult has design training courses that will advance your knowledge into becoming a successful affiliate marketer. These training includes; Digital Marketing and Website Designing of which you will be trained in relevant areas in order to acquire necessary skills to effectively utilize this secret. You learn how to build your own e-store, discover selling products that will be profitable to market and most returned products, including how your customers can contribute in increasing sales.

A lot of people always misunderstand “niche marketing.” Niche marketing means focusing on a specific target market – electronics, clothing, homeware, etc. Niche marketing does NOT imply targeting the smallest market probable, which is what most people do. Remember these words: BIG MARKETS ARE BETTER.

Best website hosting service in Nigeria- Learn Web Design Skills in Abuja, Lagos, Port Harcourt Nigeria

WEB HOSTING, WHAT DOES THAT MEANS?

One of the questions we hear often from new students or client who wants to learn or venture into web design and development is – what is web hosting and how does it work?

Well, think of hosting as a house, it could be an apartment building or lake view terrace that you rented for a particular purpose, in our context website. Websites are hosted on web servers and in order to get your website hosted, you will pay for a web-hosting service. You will be given a space to run your business, just an empty space with no shelf, no furnishing although it is easy to furnish your space by installing any framework you want choosing from the many that come in with your cPanel account. If you do not have a hosting service, you will have a place to put your files and the domain name you bought (if you already have), will be just a virtual house address with no physical building. To run a website, you will need basically three things; domain name, Hosting and Web content. Your web content includes text and media files that needed a space to be stored in, which is where web hosting comes in play.

CHOOSING A HOSTING PLAN.

When choosing a web hosting plan, you should first consider what type of website you are going to be running. Is it going to house members? Will it be a database driven website or static HTML? Will it be strictly informational? Will you be running an e-commerce store? How huge are your website files? What is your estimated traffic? All these will affect the choice of hosting you want.

Just like the housing illustration, most web-hosting providers offers three main categories consisting of Shared, VPS and Dedicated Servers.

Shared Hosting – This is hosting type is more like an apartment building, where you neighbor and everyone is using the same resources. If one of the neighbours is over-using a resource, it can affect the others on the server. It is the cheapest and most common type of hosting. Many people start out on a shared hosting plan.

VPS – Virtual Private Servers are much like a townhome, or row house. Each account is like its own home unit. They have separate resource allocation and are in much more control over their site environment. However, just like in a shared, tenants that overuse resources may have an effect on the other accounts on the server. This doesn’t happen often on a VPS than a shared server.

Dedicated server – This is like owning your own house, the entire building is yours. In other words, the entire server is yours. All the resources are dedicated to your account, so no one else can bother you on the server. Just like a house, it varies in sizes, so you may need to upgrade to larger dedicated servers as your website grows.

Irrespective of the hosting category you choose, you will still have to decide on the size of space and amount of allocated bandwidth you will want to acquire. You can always upgrade to increase space and bandwidth as you desire in future.

Website content /files are what your visitors and potential customers actually see when the visit you site. The site files are not different from any other file you normally use, like a .jpg photograph, or .mp3 music file. Though, website files are also. PHP files or .html files, which are PHP scripts or HTML pages respectively.

Web hosting services works simply by giving us a storage space where our website files will be stored in high-powered computers (web servers) connected to a very fast network.

How to get to google first page online: SEO Tips and Tricks

HOW GOOD IS YOUR SEO?

If websites are like cars, then SEO is more like an engine that drives a car. A good performing car is a result of a well-serviced engine. In other words, if your engine is not in good shape, then your car is as good as bad itself. This make me ask you a direct question – How sound is your SEO? Knowing the state of your SEO takes more than just running a search on your domain name. Though it is good practice to check if your website is indexed by some popular search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing, it requires some specific skills and practice to ascertain how good is your search engine optimization.

Most of these skills and practice requires some amount of training in Website Design and Digital Marketing and you can enroll for either of these courses at Soutech Web Consult, Area 1, Abuja.

So you want to know how good is your SEO? Here are some processes you will need to effect or observed.

DOMAIN NAME

All SEO starts from a domain name. There should be a good amount of analysis on the domain name you intend to use and the type of extension. For instance, while a .com extension is strongly recommended for most domain name www.getinternet.net is a more suitable domain for an Internet Provider company and www.givehelp.org is a good suggestion for an NGO. When acquiring domain name avoid buying a domain name that contains special characters (i.e www.get-internet.net). It is also advisable not to buy a domain containing numeric characters. The easier it is to pronounce a domain name verbally, the better it is for a search engine to crawl it in.

WEBSITE STRUCTURE

Just like any well-planned building has a blueprint, so as a good website should have a well-structured sitemap. A sitemap is being neglected even by some Web developers, but thanks to Google Webmaster. In order to successfully enlist your website to Google webmaster so you be found on the web, you will need to add/upload you website sitemap into Google Webmaster. It is good practice to have a proper sitemap and update it each time new pages are added to your website. Just in case you are wondering, sitemap enables search engines to read and get familiar with your web pages for proper indexing and optimization.

KEYWORDS

If you would want to be seen, heard of and talked about, then you must understand the power behind A keyword. It is a word or phrase that is a topic of significance allowing searchers to identify and verbalize their problem or topic in which they’re looking for more information. Using the right keywords goes hand to hand with your domain name. choosing the right keywords starts with your domain name because your domain is going to be the first keyword the search engine will optimize. The content of your websites and details of your business/services also plays significant roles when choosing keywords. An example of wrong keywords is when your websites talk about Internet and Web applications but your keywords are on Groceries.

Having a web presence for your business and services is a development for the future, but there is need to employ professionals when it comes to web presence otherwise your web presence will end up as web-unknown. You manage your website and SEO by yourself,  though you will need to learn some skills. I recommend taking a Website Design and Digital Marketing training at Soutech Web Consult, at SoutechWe only train you in the relevant areas, fast and conveniently design for you.

You can as well hire us for professional web development services.

5 Steps to hacking(ethical hacking)- SOUTECH Cyber security tips, techniques and tools guide 2017

The 5 Phases Every Hacker Must Follow- Part 1

Originally, to “hack” meant to possess extraordinary computer skills to extend the limits of computer
systems. Hacking required great proficiency. However, today there are automated tools and codes
available on the Internet that makes it possible for anyone with a will and desire, to hack and succeed.
Mere compromise of the security of a system does not denote success. There are websites that insist on
“taking back the net” as well as those who believe that they are doing all a favor by posting the exploit
details. These can act as a detriment and can bring down the skill level required to become a successful
attacker.
The ease with which system vulnerabilities can be exploited has increased while the knowledge curve
required to perform such exploits has shortened. The concept of the elite/super hacker is an illusion.
However, hackers are generally intelligent individuals with good computer skills, with the ability to create
and explore into the computer’s software and hardware. Their intention can be either to gain knowledge
or to dig around to do illegal things. Attackers are motivated by the zeal to know more while malicious
attackers would intend to steal data. In general, there are five phases in which an intruder advances an
attack:
1. Reconnaissance
2. Scanning
3. Gaining Access
4. Maintaining Access
5. Covering Tracks

Local Web Development via a server: Learn how to start developing websites- SOUTECH

So you have just found web development interesting and want to learn or you are a beginner in web development? Whichever category you belong; you will definitely find this article interesting and useful. During my first three months as a beginner in web design, I recall how difficult it was for me to see my codes displayed on the browsers as intended. Most times the HTML display just fine while some PHP and JavaScript will not display as intended and I often wonder what is it that I am not doing right, that before I meet a good friend called “Local Server”. Off cause, PHP is a server-side language, so you will definitely need a server to run it.

Local Server

Local Server often called a localhost is a software with some built-in functionalities that make your website looks just like it should when it is been hosted on a live server. You will need a local server if you intend to install and run a Content Management System on your computer. It can be accessed by pointing your browser to 127.0.0.1 or http://localhost, at some point you might need to add a port i.e. http://localhost:8080. To install a local server on a windows computer you have an option to choose between XAMPP (X-Cross-Platform, A-Apache, M-MariaDB, P-PHP and P-Perl) and WAMP (Windows, Apache, MySQL, PHP). I prefer XAMPP which works just fine for me and other developers find it to be awesome. Don’t worry both packages are open source.

Functionality

The two regular functions often used are the server (which is apache) and database (MariaDB). The Apache server which is known to be the best server in the world, serving HTTP document over the internet allows your website to be published locally for testing. MariaDB is one of the most popular open source database servers created by the original developers of MySQL, it allows for database creation when building a data-driven website.

How to install

We will use this guide to install XAMPP on our local server. So with no wasting of time head straight tohttps://www.apachefriends.org/index.html choose the version of XAMPP you prefer to download (I suggest you choose the one with a widely used PHP version).  After the download is complete, you need to open the folder where you saved the file, and double-click the installer file.

First, you will be prompted to select the language you wish to use in XAMPP. Click the arrow in the drop-down box to select your desired language from the list, then click OK to continue the installation process.

If you are using Windows 7 or higher, you will see a pop-up window, warning you about User Account Control (UAC) being active on your system. Do not panic, just click OK to continue the installation.

Next, you will see the Welcome to The XAMPP Setup Wizard screen. Click Next to continue the installation.

The next dialogue screen will allow you to choose which components you would like to install. To run XAMPP properly, all components checked need to be installed. Click Next to continue.

It is time for you to Choose Install Location screen. Unless you would like to install XAMPP on another drive, you should not change anything. Click Install to continue.

Relax while XAMPP extract files to the location you selected in the previous step.

Once all of the files have been extracted, the Completing The XAMPP Setup Wizard screen will appear. Click Finish to complete the installation.

Click Yes to open the XAMPP Control Panel after you have click Finish in the previous screen.

You now have a local server.

A local server is idle for testing when building websites and web applications. XAMPP needs to be configured properly for better functionality. To learn more about building web applications and testing with a local server, I recommend you enroll in a web design training at Soutech Web Consult.

Ten Deadly Sins of Cyber security: SOUTECH Web Security Tips and Techniques Guide

1. Introduction
The Information technology (IT) revolution has made it easier to communicate and  disseminate information over long distances and in real time. IT has entered into major realms of a person’s life like education, occupation, commerce and entertainment. The speed, convenience and efficiency associated with IT have made it the lifeline of most organizations, government agencies, professionals and  individuals. Whether you take a look at banking and finance, energy, health care, utility services and communication, IT has revolutionized every sphere of business activity and service delivery. The services sector, in particular has been one of the major beneficiaries of the IT revolution. Banks now offer multiple channels for interacting with their clients such as branch, Internet, mobile, phone and teller machines which make financial products more attractive, and banking more convenient for customers. In this case, banking industry customers are networked to their bank in one way or another.
1.1 Cyber Security
Information Technology and its significance in the business world have become ubiquitous. Today’s business environment is comprised of service industries that are completely dependent on their IT infrastructure. For example, the air traffic control industry is critical to the “normal” functioning of airlines so any disruption in their “traffic control systems” can cause errors that could result in accidents and could even lead to loss of life. Conversely, a power breakdown resulting from a disruption in a company’s IT infrastructure could bring all “operational” activities to a standstill.
The explosive growth and dependence on Information Technology has also provided a veritable breeding ground for cyber crime. Information Technology has made it easier for unscrupulous entities to deceive, steal and harm others through cyberspace. The ease with which these cybercrimes can be committed has raised concerns regarding information confidentiality, integrity and availability. Therefore, the importance of cyber security cannot be overstated. Cyber security involves protection of the data on all
computers and systems that interact with the Internet. It is possible to achieve this level of protection by ensuring proper authentication and maintaining confidentiality, integrity and access controls. In addition, non-repudiation of data is a crucial element of cyber security.

2. Vulnerabilities
The evolution of Cybercrime is evident when one examines how technologically advanced the scope and nature of common attacks have become. Cybercriminals have a more sophisticated modus operandi and purpose. Information can be stolen through social engineering techniques like phishing, or via direct attacks, installing malware through browser tools, ad-links, and key loggers among others. Cybercrime is steadily evolving into a well-organized but still very illegal business activity. In spite of these advances, adherence to a standard of IT Security fundamentals can facilitate appropriate handling of cyber threats.
2.1 Ten Deadly Sins of Cyber Security
i. Weak passwords
The most fundamental, but often overlooked premise of cyber security is strong passwords. Many users still use insecure passwords.

Some of the insecure password practices include
a) Using all letters of same case,
b) Sequential numbers or letters,
c) Only numerals,
d) Less than eight-characters,
e) Predictable characters (such as name, date of birth, phone number)
f) Common passwords for different online accounts.
Now, the question is, “What makes users use predictable passwords irrespective of perceived threats?” Consider the number of accounts that require a user to “login,” throughout a user’s daily routine. Social networking sites, bank websites, official web applications, databases and email ids.
Some of the reasons for using predictable and insecure passwords include:
a) Easy to remember
b) Lack of uniformity in password policy across websites.
A strong password must be a combination of letters, numerals and special
characters and must not be less than eight characters long. A password should
not be predictable. Users must employ different passwords for each of their
individual online accounts.
ii. Phished
Do you respond to e-mails asking for account information? If your answer is,
“Yes.” then you are more likely [than not], to be a victim of a phishing scam. Phishing is a common method of identity theft that utilizes fake e-mails which are sent to customers to acquire sensitive user information.
Example:
Mr. “XYZ” has a savings account with Target bank. Last weekend, Mr. XYZ received an e-mail from customersecurity@targetbank.co.uk with a subject line, ”Update your Target bank online access.”
The e-mail stated that the bank had recently upgraded its services and requested that the recipient fill out a “Customer Update Form” on the link  http://www.targetbank.com. Since Mr. XYZ assumed that the email came from his own bank, he clicked on the provided link. The link took him to a website which appeared to be identical to Target bank’s website. Mr. XYZ filled out the web form containing personal
information as well as authentication details, which the “Customer Update Form” required.
A day later, when he logged on to his online account at https://www.targetbank.com, he was shocked to find that all the funds in his account had been drained.
Mr. XYZ was the victim of a simple phishing scam. Let’s review some basic details that Mr. XYZ missed in the email. First, the mail did not address him by his name; instead, it used “Dear Customer”. Second, the email id ended with “co.uk”, while ideally it should have ended with “.com.” Third, the link, “http://targetbank.com” lead to a fake site www.malicious.ie/userdetails.asp. Finaly, banks usually do not ask customers to reveal “access details” through email.
This is the type of example that can be shared with an employee while training them not to respond to or click on links provided in a “suspicious e-mail.”

iii. Lack of data back up
A user can lose data in events such as hardware or software failure, a virus attack, file corruption, accidental file deletion, application failure, damage of partition structure, or even damage due to power failure. Appropriate data backup procedures allow a user to restore data in times of crisis. There are many ways to backup data such as storing it on CD or DVDs drives, thumb drives, and external
hard disks. Users can create a complete system backup by using a disk image 1. Another secure way to back up data is to employ an online backup service whose main business function is to host uploading and downloading of files as well as file compression and encryption. The basic premise behind backing up data is to make “backed up” data available for later use. Depending upon the changes in
data, a user may schedule backup activity on an hourly, daily or weekly basis. Users can make use of backup options available on a backup utility to verify that all data is properly copied
1 A disk image is a complete sector‐by‐sector copy of the device and replicates its structure and contents
It is not uncommon to “back up your back up” by creating multiple copies of data, so that in case one backup copy is damaged, another copy could be used. Data, which has been backed up, must be adequately protected from malware, Trojans or other cyber threats by using anti-virus solutions and regular updates. Another process, which can prove to be valuable, is to store a copy of data at an offsite
location to safeguard data from any disaster at current premises. While recovering backup files, it is a good idea to have a data recovery software in place to retrieve files from external hard drives.
iv. Insecure Internet Browsing
A Web browser is the gateway to the Internet and is one of the most widely utilized applications. Web browsers are embedded with scripts, applets, plugins and Active X controls. However, these features can be used by hackers to infect unprotected computers with a virus or malicious code. For example, web browsers allow plugins like a flash viewer to extend functionality. Hackers may create malicious flash video clips and embed them in web pages. Vulnerabilities in a web browser can compromise the security of a system and its information. To control security threats, a user may:
a. Disable active scripting in the web browser

b. Add risky sites encountered under restricted sites zone
c. Keep Web browser security level at medium for trusted sites and high for
restricted sites
d. Uncheck the AutoComplete password storage feature in AutoComplete e. Avoid downloading free games and applications as they may have in-built spyware and malware
f. Use anti-spyware solutions
Cyber threats that originate as the result of web browser vulnerabilities, can be controlled by using the latest versions of the web browser software, or by installing updates and configuring settings to disable applets, scripts, plugins and Active X controls.
v. Use of pirated software
Do you use pirated operating systems and/or software?
If your answer is, “Yes.” then you are more likely [than not], to be vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
The ease of availability and often low cost of pirated software can entice users to install pirated software on their computers. However, pirated software may not have the same configuration strength that is available with “genuine software.” The threat to individuals and companies from the risk of privacy, identity or data protection breaches and the exposure of financial implications in the cyber space
make the purchase of “genuine software,” a must. Pirated software may be used to harvest Trojans and viruses in computer systems and since the software is “unsupported” the user is deprived of technical support. Another downside is that software updates are not available to those who have installed pirated software. We purchase software for its functionality and pirated software may lead to frequent interruptions and has even been documented to cause damage to your hard disk. Users who purchase and install genuine software products will benefit from technical support, product updates, un-interrupted services and in the long run; cost savings.
vi. Misuse of Portable storage devices.
The last few years have seen an increased usage of portable storage devices. These devices have brought improvements in working practices, but they also pose a threat to data via theft or leakage. These devices have high storage capacity and can easily be connected to other devices and/or to network
resources. Users can use portable storage devices to download software, applications and data by connecting to official networks. Portable storage devices may also be used to download privileged business information and sensitive customer information. Organizations can restrict the use of portable storage devices to selected users or selected set of devices. “The loss or theft of portable devices can lead to loss or “leakage” of sensitive business and/or user information. “
An example:  In 2007, a leading provider of a Security Certification lost a laptop containing names, addresses, social security numbers, telephone numbers, dates of birth and salary records of employees. In this case, the sensitive business information could have been encrypted to protect data from leakage, even if the device was stolen.

vii. Lack of proper encryption If a user does not have the proper network security practices in place, they are essentially inviting malicious entities to attach their system. Whether a system is a wired or wireless network it is crucial for the proper security safe guards to be in  place to assure safe operations while the computer is active in a live session on the web. Some of the risks that one can expect from an unsecured network include:
a. Unauthorized access to files and data
b. Attackers may capture website traffic, user id and passwords,
c. Attackers may inject a software to log user key strokes and steal sensitive information
d. Unauthorized access to corporate network. (In the event that the user’s network is connected to a corporate network.)
e. A users IP address could be compromised and unauthorized users may use it for illegal transactions. (User network may be used to launch spam and virus attacks on other users.)
A network can be secured by using proper encryption protocols. Network
encryption involves the application of cryptographic services on the network transfer layer, which exists between the data link level and the application level. Data is encrypted during its transition from the data link level to the application level. Wired networks use Internet Protocol Security, while Wireless Encryption Protocol is used to encrypt wireless networks.
viii. Lack of regular updates
Cyber threats are always on the horizon. New versions and updates of security products are released on a regular basis with enhanced security features to guard against latest threats. A user can make use of recommended practices to improve defense against cyber-attacks. Users may also keep track of latest versions of software to improve performance. Since some software developers only issue updates for the latest versions of their software, a user that is using an older version, may not benefit from the latest updates. One of the crucial ways to reduce vulnerabilities is to regularly update the system’s network security devices and related software.
ix. Using Wireless Hotspots
Wireless users often look for convenient ways to gain Internet access, and public Wi-Fi hotspots provide quick, easy and free access to the Internet. What can be more convenient than that? A resourceful wireless user can find Wi-Fi access points at public places such as Cyber café’s, universities, offices, airports, railway stations and hotels. However, these Wi-Fi hotspots may be insecure. Some of the
risks involved in connecting to Wi-Fi hotspots include:
a. Users may be required to use the ISP that is hosting the Internet access for the business that is creating a particular access point. Not all ISPs provide secure SMTP for sending e-mail. In other words, it is possible that any e-mail that is sent and received by users via a “random” hot spot could be
Ten Deadly Sins of Cyber Security August 2010
All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is Strictly Prohibited intercepted by other users sharing the same hot spot. (All users in the same hot spot are sharing the same network.)
b. If a user’s wireless card is set to ad-hoc mode, other users can connect directly.
c. If the access point does not use encryption technology like WEP, other users with a Wi-Fi card could intercept and read the username, passwords, and any other information transmitted by a user.
While using public access points it is safe to use secure websites protected by the Secure Sockets Layer. Using infrastructure mode is safer than ad-hoc mode as it uses access controls to connect to network. A Virtual Private Network (VPN) is a secure way for a user to connect with their company network. (VPN creates secure access to private network over public connections.)
x. Lack of awareness/ proper training Internet and wireless technologies have revolutionized the daily routine of users. With the aid of this new technology, users can conduct transactions, access bank accounts and reserve airline tickets in few minutes. The downside of this new technology is that there are also incidents of data breach and transaction frauds. Cyber security is becoming an issue of major concern. However, users can avoid most of the risks by employing simple precautions. (Lack of awareness is a major hurdle in the safe use of the cyberspace.) Selection of weak passwords is one of
the most fundamental errors committed by users. Unaware users are tempted to reveal authentication details through phishing. Inadequate firewall protection, lack of regular software updates can make systems vulnerable to cyber threats. Users may take precautions by adhering to cyber security tips given on websites of banks, regulatory organization, security product developers, and information
security departments such as SOUTECH VENTURES. Organizations can create awareness among employees through regularly scheduled meetings, training programs and workshops.
3. Conclusion
The proliferation of information technology has also presented the criminals with more attack
vectors. Consequently, cybercriminals make use of every possible vulnerability and opportunity to exploit and launch attack. For example, web feeds designed for productive use of users in meeting information requirements may be used by cybercriminals as attack vectors. Cybercrime can be countered by proactive cyber security initiatives. Creating awareness among users is crucial to limit threats in cyber space. Convergence of laws related to cyber security across international boundaries could also assist in the appropriate handling of cybercrime.

What most Nigerian Businesses are Missing ” Getting Your Business Found Online via Google”

WHAT NIGERIAN BUSINESSES AND SERVICES ARE MISSING

The internet has been a power tool and has played a significant role over years in transforming people, businesses, and services. The social media, for example, has made communication easy in various ways, nevertheless, it has also aided businesses and services to global recognition. Yeah, now you know where I am heading.

Applicable Strategy

So you want to know what your business and services are missing? Well, before I tell, I would like you to ruminate about the word “CONSISTENCY”, does it ring a bell? It should if you belong to the team “expanding my business”. Now imagine that you wake up in the morning and try to login to your Gmail account, google wasn’t available, and wouldn’t be until noon and you need to send a very important email. If you are thinking like me, you would look for another email provider that will allow you to send your important email.

Now you have an alternative while Gmail in the other hand has a competitor, that is exactly what will happen when your business is not available to a customer at a given time. Unfortunately, I would not talk about consistency in your business and services, rather a consistency in what will bring prospective clients to your targeted list.

Missing the Internet

Do you know that Amazon.com has vendors in almost every city in the USA and UK? But over 85% of their customers patronizes them via the internet. Customers spend more time online because it is easier to locate items through web search function, it is convenient (no rush), and they can choose to pay upon delivery. Taking your business and services to the internet doesn’t only globalized you, it breaches the limit of services you can offer your clients and keeps your clients close to you.

You must apply the consistency theory when taking your businesses and services to the internet. Over 7 million Nigerians use social media every day, yeah! So you need to make over 7 million Nigeria know about you, and you’re are going to remind them about your business and service every day.

Statistics of Nigerians using Facebook.com

Facebook has announced that the social media networking giant has 16 million active users in Nigeria, 6.3 per cent up from June 30, 2015. The announcement coincides with Facebook’s Friends Day, a celebration of Facebook’s 12th anniversary which was marked on Thursday, February 4.

Facebook is the largest social networking company. As of January 2016, Facebook’s monthly active users reached 1.55 billion, or 22 per cent of the entire world’s population. Facebook’s other services have 900 million users (WhatsApp), 800 million users (Facebook Messenger) and 400 million users (Instagram), globally, according to Statista, a leading statistics company on the internet.

Statistics of persons using google.com search for shopping

While smartphones are becoming a vital part of online shopping across the globe as a result of mobile devices, new findings from Google’s consumer Barometer tool released Wednesday has revealed that 85% of people in Nigeria use smartphones for product research as against 30% using computers and 6% using tablets respectively.

Google with their search engine gain insight into what Nigerians need economically and what they are looking for, whatever you search for in Nigeria on Google is with Google because they know your location, save what you search, personalize it for you, and use it for marketing purposes. So if you want to start online marketing practices in Nigeria you need basic knowledge about Google Search Engine and other Google services if you want customers from Google. Google Services are Search Engine, YouTube, Google Plus, Google play, Google Drive, Google Events, Google Map, Google Analytics and more.

Why you need to consistency use Digital marketing (3Ts)Tips, Tools, Techniques to put your business online

Facebook is the second most visited by Nigerians where people make friend and communicate socially with others,  it has up to 16 million users in Nigeria and have been making real money from Nigerians as customers.

The fact is that the owner of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg is among the ten richest person on earth as at August 2016, you probably don’t know he makes money through advertisements on Facebook. When you see ‘ Sponsored ‘ on a page or post the owner of the post paid facebook for that because the owner of the post want to reach more people.

Nigerians access YouTube Video Sharing website because of the contribution of mobile ISPs (Internet service providers) in Nigeria and the NCC (Nigeria Communication commission) by providing broadband Internet service to people almost everywhere.

Why you should start digital marketing TODAY: SOUTECH Ventures business growth guide

WHY YOU SHOULD “SWITCH” TO DIGITAL MARKETING

Digital marketing has not just been proved as the substratum of marketing, it also encases how cost effective marketing can be done, with a higher rate of an outcome. Technology itself has taken over a seemingly command over almost everything. Today, technology has adopted a face of digitalization, which has suddenly started looking like a quicksand, where everything has been absorbed and turned into a new digital world. Today the concept of digital marketing with or without organic and inorganic techniques, allows individuals and entities to bring their businesses and services on the internet and establish it by means of online marketing.

Digital marketing refers to advertising and promoting businesses, services, and brands through digital media channels. A digital media channels can be any platform that can deliver information electronically, such as websites, social media, mobile, e-mails, radio, television, billboards.

The Cost Effective Marketing

Regardless the size of your pocket, digital marketing can help in establishing your business portfolio in a more productive manner, where every resource spent would generate value. The “switch” to digital media is being driven by marketing agencies, business owners and consumers alike. The increasing demand to show quantifiable results has made going digital a dream for every marketing agency.

The cost of digital marketing is very low to an extent, especially for business owners. Having an effective web presence whilst engaging customers in conversations through social media and e-mail marketing, are low-cost alternatives to print advertising. In a simple illustration I would say; if you are to share flyers to some people using print media, each flyer has a cost and there is no guarantee that a person you give a flyer will gain interest. But in digital marketing, all you need is one flyer in soft-copy which can be broadcast to as many persons as possible.

You should be where you can be found

The easiest way consumers can find your business is by whipping out their phone and search for products or items they intend to purchase, if your digital marketing strategy is effective and using the right keywords appropriately, your business and services will experience a robust growth globally. While every business has some kind of product and every product needing promotion, promotions must follow a strategy starting with a unique approach called digital marketing. No marketing techniques had ever had the kind of reach that digital marketing has achieved. For instance, any update you make on social media networks like facebook, in no time it will be notice and conversation will start on that update. In the instance of digital marketing, that update could be a new product or about a new service.

Taking the first step

A good approach to digital marketing, I would say starts by having a website that does the following:

  • Adequately represents your business and brand (look and feel, messaging)
  • Adequately speaks to your target audience
  • Can be found by searchers on top search engines
  • Is up-to-date and easily navigable
  • Provides multiple channels for customer communication
  • Connects to other marketing efforts

Of great importance is the need to be consistent. If you are not consistent in your digital marketing approach then you might not get your desired results.


Also focus is very key to getting on top of google search engine results. There is nothing as using a good content marketing strategy to attract your potential customers and clients to your website.

Soutech Web Consult is an I.T company that specialized in providing solutions in both I.T and E-business. At Soutech, a Training on Digital Marketing will shape your knowledge towards engaging in effective digital marketing.

Emergency Ransomware Kit: SOUTECH Ventures Web Security Solutions

I’m sure you have already heard about the global ransomware attacks that occurred on Friday. Major news outlets like Bloomberg and CNN are calling this the largest ransomware attack to date. Our security analysts are warning us that this is just the beginning. Please see more detail in this blog post.

This type of attack, which marries ransomware with worm type spread, was discussed in our Partner Threat Assessment Webinar hosted by Greg Mosher (VP of Engineering SMB) last Wednesday. The example focused on PetrWrap, similar to WannaCrypt, which targets businesses based on it’s wormy spread. This type of attack is fairly unsophisticated, leveraging simple spam+binary and web exploit delivery methods.

In the case of WannaCrypt (actually WannaCryptOr 2.0), its success was due to exploiting vulnerabilities in Windows file sharing systems. These vulnerabilities had already been patched in supported operating systems. Due to the significant number of machines which were not fully patched or still running older versions of Windows, WannaCrypt was able to have a big impact.

This attack underlines the importance of a good antivirus solution, regular, controlled patching. We urge you to make your customers aware of the value of antivirus, patching and regular backups. Many security analysts, including our own, have said with proper antivirus, patching and backups in place the effects of this attack would have been significantly lessened.

To help you educate your customers on ransomware prevention and protection, we have put together an Emergency Ransomware Kit( Contact us for details). The kit contains:

  • An infographic outlining the dangers of ransomware, the impact it will have on your customer’s business and the steps you can take to help keep them safe.
  • Email copy and a banner you can use to help make your customers aware of this serious situation and let them know what you can do to protect their business right now.
  • Step-by-step guide on how to put the email blast together and how to follow up with your customers and prospects.

AVAST-AVG is fully aware of the intricacies of the Cyber Attack during the weekend and our Product team has confirmed that “AVGAST” products protect against the WannaCry ransomware variant.

Our engineers and developers are working hard to launch a new feature that will further enhance the current program, the release date is set for June 27th.

If there is anything we can help you with, please don’t hesitate to ask.

5 tips to help you prepare for CEH exam success : SOUTECH Ventures Live Class and Online Class Training

IT security breaches have regularly made news headlines over the past 12 to 18 months. These hacks can be extremely costly. Businesses are now making their IT security a top priority to ensure they are protected from hackers. This means the demand for IT security professionals has soared and Ethical Hackers are among the most highly sought after.


The role of Ethical Hacker is one of the most exciting in IT currently with an average salary of £72,500 (according to itjobswatch.co.uk). Ethical Hackers are at the forefront of IT security and the top of their field. They work directly to stop malicious hackers, using many of the same techniques. But crucially, once they’ve spotted a gap in security, they close it to protect the business.The biggest and most trusted certification for Ethical Hackers is EC-Council’s Certified Ethical hacker certification. As the title suggests, it proves you have the skills of an Ethical Hacker. In order to pass the CEH exam, you’ll need to prove skills in areas like malware threats, session hijacking, SQL infection and cryptography. This shows you can identify gaps in a business’s security and ensure they cannot be exploited.

To help you get your CEH certification and prove you have all the ethical hacking skills required, we’ve compiled 5 of the most useful tips to help you prepare for the tough CEH exam.

1. Get familiar with the exam

It’s important to get familiar with the exam before attempting it. EC-Council’s CEH website can help you do this. It has CEH FAQs, a breakdown of the exam format and duration, plus an extensive background of the CEH certification and regulations. I’d also recommend using the website for reference during your studies, or if you have any queries about the exam. If you still want more information, take a look at our previous post on CEH v9 FAQs.

Due to the sensitivity of the knowledge the CEH is teaching you( SOUTECH does a monthly CEH taining- Abuja class and online classes)

And as a very basic tip, but a point definitely worth mentioning, make sure you know which version of CEH you’re studying for. EC-Council recently updated the CEH curriculum to version 9.

2. Use a study guide

EC-Council offer a series of study guides for their CEH exam. These are on five different topics within ethical hacking, which includes “Attack Phases”, “Linux, Macintosh & Mobile Systems”, “Secure Network Infrastructures”, “Threats & Defense Mechanisms” and “Web Applications & Data Servers”. As they’re official from EC-Council, you know you can trust the information. Each book covers its topic thoroughly, giving you plenty of knowledge to tackle it in the exam.

You can contact us for several study guide or take an online training today at pocket friendly prices

3. Take an official CEH course

Sitting an official CEH course will put you in the best possible position for the exam, following a method proven to help people gain as much knowledge and skills as possible. If you choose an official classroom based CEH course, you’ll benefit from a qualified expert instructor. You’ll have access to the instructor’s expert knowledge when you have questions. Whilst you’re also with other students who’ll be in the same situation, asking similar questions and boosting your motivation.

4. Test yourself with practice questions

The best way to assess your readiness for the CEH exam is to try a practice test. You’ll get immediate feedback and it’ll help you make the connection between your studies and the end goal of gaining knowledge and skills and passing the exam, relating your knowledge to specially designed questions.

Skillset offer CEH practice tests in 52 different skill areas. From Cryptanalytic Attacks to Computer Viruses to Session Hijacking, this incredible detail means you can study CEH comprehensively. Also, each topic has a series of more advanced levels allowing you to test the depth of your knowledge for each topic area.

There is also a practice test on the EC-Council website. As it comes straight from the creators of the CEH exam you know the questions will be useful and could be a basis from which to build your revision, and assess your readiness for the CEH exam. I wouldn’t use this resource too early in your studies, but as a check to see whether your knowledge is well-rounded enough for the exam.

5. Get involved in a forum

Using a forum is a great way to connect with many like-minded people who are currently studying for the same certification or who have sat it in the past. You’ll learn from their queries and experiences helping you get ideas for your own studies. However, bear in mind that not everyone is an expert.

TechExams has one of the largest CEH forums, with people that have passed and those who have found barriers and difficulties whilst studying. Here, you’ll be able to find help and information regarding what skill areas you should concentrate on to gain the most from the certification. Not only will this help you pass the exam, it’ll help you focus on the most useful topic areas to help you on the job in the future.

The truth is that these tools are available and if you decide not to use them then you cannot blame your team if you fail. There are professional ways to measure media spend and metrics, there are tangible ways to influence the audience which rely on more than intuition.

SOCIAL MARKETING: Using social media for marketing can enable small business looking to further their reach to more customers. Your customers are interacting with brands through social media, therefore, having a strong social media marketing plan and presence on the web is the key to tap into their interest. If implemented correctly, marketing with social media can bring remarkable success to your business.

HOW TO USE: Effective Utilization of social media for marketing, require some set of skills and training. I strongly recommend that you take a digital marketing certificate course, it will give an insight on how social media marketing really works and effective ways of transforming it into a more effective marketing tool for your business and services.

Some of the Benefits you get from using the social media as an effective marketing tool includes:

  1. Increased Brand Recognition
  2. Enhanced Customer Insights
  3. Developed brand loyalty
  4. Reduced Marketing Costs.
  5. Better Inbound Traffic.
  6. Strong Brand Authority
  7. More Opportunities to Convert

You can as well become a social media marketing expert by taking the digital marketing certificate course, from Soutech Ventures.

CONCLUSION: Actively using social media is one of the easiest ways to reach a large audience and get the company or brand name in the heads of existing or potential customers. Not only does an already established network help to create new contacts, it will also help to deepen connections that have been formed. Even though this sounds very familiar to traditional marketing techniques, social media has given them a new twist. Companies that fail to adopt to a new more connected and interactive market, will inevitably fall behind.

How to become an ethical hacker in Nigeria- SOUTECH Cyber security and CEH training program

becomce an ethical hacker in nigeria

Do you know that in a long while say few years or even few decades, there’s a great an increasing demand for ethical hackers (also known as white hat hackers) as they protect the computer systems from dangerous intrusions, malwares and ultimately from hackers( known as black hat hackers). Ethical hackers are technically skilled IT pros with a strong desire to solve problems and prevent malicious hackers from causing damage to network systems, stored data, databases and any IT infrastructure be it hardware or software.

This article tends to help you understand the step by step guide you need to go through in order to become an ethical hacker. Like they say a thousand miles journey starts with just one step. To be a professional ethical hacker you require motivation, dedication, initiative, self-education and formal training in ethical hacking. EC-Council (the CEH certifying body) calls it the technical and non-technical requirements for been an ethical hacker.

  1. Understand and have a good grasp of the advantages and disadvantages of different types of hackers, such as White Hat, Grey Hat and Black Hat hackers. Newbies or script kiddies who are keen to become a Black Hat need to keep in mind that “A day of glory is not worth years in prison”- Carefulness that without permission you can be caught.
  2. Seek out entry job opportunities for ethical hackers. There are lucrative jobs available in government organizations, banks, financial institutions, military establishments and private companies. My simple advice is also to tell starters to do stuffs for free or almost free (little fee) in order to learn and get the necessary experience.
  3. Examine the basic requirements to become an ethical hacker. Try to find out the areas where will you need to develop yourself in with respect to theoretical and practical knowledge so you can have an edge in becoming a smart ethical hacker and also work really hard. At SOUTECH we employ to-be ethical hackers to take up simple or short courses in the core 19 modules areas they are not familiar with because the CEH- ethical hacking courses is very in-depth and like it’s said a very fast paced course.
  4. Understand that cyber security and ethical hacking covers a wide area of scope and really you can’t be good in all the areas. But note that the CEH Course provides you with the foundation of all the areas as regards cyber security, so decide the area where you would prefer to work primarily with hardware or software. Do not think of specializing in both the areas. Though knowledge of both is required but the decision will help you to know where to begin. You must be aware of every function, every component of computer on which you will have to work on.
  5. Evaluate your strengths and interests and gain some programming knowledge such as C, Python or Java. Also understand and learn about technologies in cloud computing, networking etc. These programming languages can be learned by taking formal programming courses and reading books. It will help you to read and write code. If ultimately you will become a software testing expert needed by most software company (to check for security flaws in software’s and the development process) you need to understand the language, platform, technology before you can start testing. My advice, start your journey today.
  6. Install and start learning the UNIX operating system as it is regarded as the original operating system built by hackers. Also learn about Windows and Mac OS. Your familiarity with the different operating system will make you a better hacker!
  7. Take a professional course. There are a wide variety of courses available for IT security professionals in “Ethical Hacking” or “Internet Security” which would help you to expand your knowledge in ethical hacking.
  8. Do the experiments on your own to know the actual happening of a situation.
  9. Start testing with hardware and software to learn how to take control of the circumstances, incidences and how to prevent a computer from getting hacked or if it’s hacked how to remedy the situation as is shown in the ethical hacking training program organized by SOUTECH.
  10. Read and learn on your own to know what are the areas where you need to improve and what need to be learned to refine your focus. Technology, Tools, Techniques changes rapidly, and a good ethical hacker must be alacritous and eager to keep up with the new technological developments.
  11. Get certified and take related and accredited exams as it would help you to succeed in the vanguard of your profession.
  12. Stay connected to the hacker community by sharing technical information and ideas. Register on forums, blogs and stay very update because an informed mind can’t go wrong. Knowledge is very key in becoming an outstanding ethical hacker.

N.B: Continuously keep learning new things and increase your knowledge, Keep you focus intact in your job or in learning from your PC/box, Don’t do it just or fun, Never do it just for money, Always work within the law( under and never try to break it.

Tools/Skills for the trade: Computers, Zeal to learn new things, Enjoy your work, Be Anonymous.

The lesson presents the concept of experienced value and how it relates to visual design and includes case studies of CBS and BMW.

Project – Logo design

2 – Design and Corporate Strategy

Where do company logos come from and how do they evolve? Lesson Two looks at the reasons for identity overhauls and how to make the most of change. Case studies of British Airways, Texaco, and others are discussed to explore the connection between company identities and changes in national and worldwide consciousness.

Project – Logo Redesign

3 – Designing a Corporate Brand

What skills do you need to design a great company logo or communicate with a corporate client?

Project – Product Line Logo

4 – Design Process and Methodology

Lesson Four focuses on the first of three critical phases of company design.

5 – From Solution to Evaluation

Every problem has a solution, and in this lesson we present the “solution phase” of the design process with a focus on generating effective ideas, overall strategies, and the all-important design manual. The lesson wraps up with a look at the “evaluation phase” in which solutions are put to the test.

Project – Evaluation phase

6 – Product and Corporate Design

A company logo is merely cosmetic without a strong product to back it up, and we’ll look at the role the product plays in a company design in this lesson. Specifically, you’ll explore how identity is presented through product designs from Apple and Sony.
