Study shows getting online is a financial winner for small businesses. Especially in Ballarat!

Last week the Ballarat Courier published a piece citing a Price Waterhouse Coopers study showing that Ballarat businesses have the potential to unlock $39,000 worth of economic growth per business just by getting online and streamlining their procurement through the digital economy.

As a newcomer to Ballarat, I can vouch for this study - it is a source of amazement how many excellent domain names have not yet been snapped up by local businesses.

With the coming of the NBN to Ballarat, this is a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of what should be a growth industry.

Bootstrap 3 - not a bad system as far as templates go

Usually, I'm not one for using templates when crafting websites. In my opinion, they usually look too much like a template (how many WordPress websites do you need to see before you know what a WordPress site looks like?)

But while browsing online for a new formatting technique, I came across the templates at and was pleasantly surprised.

Tailoring the CSS is not for beginners, but I must say that the templates had elegant solutions for eternal web development questions such as:

  • Responsive websites for devices
  • Simple to use & extensive animation support
  • Mobile friendly webpages

Highly recommended.
