Some say 2012 will be the end of time. Even if so, it would be an even better excuse to wish for a happy and a healthy year!
Here are some quick notes about 2011 and what to expect from 2012:
In 2011, Weptile has grown and matured incredibly!
- Weptile business value has increased over 220%
- Total number of NEW CLIENTS within a year increased over 200%
- Total number of RETURNING CLIENTS increased over 180%
- Total number of PROJECTS increased over 460%
- Total number of PROJECTS FROM RETURNING CLIENTS increased over 240%
Looks like our “110% satisfaction” motto is working out great for everyone.
The internet in 2012:
2011 has been another year for internet to get more and more into our lives. Technically speaking, I can say easily that 2012 will have a similar effect in a bigger scale. In 2012, I expect HTML 5 to be commonly used in most of the projects and many old sites to convert to it. Now Flash is practically dead for the web (RIP), jQuery will become the unofficial standard in web design.
Also hopefully, majority of users will finally get rid of all broken Internet Explorer versions (IE 6, 7 and even 8)…
WordPress in 2012:
Unlike 2010, is finally widely accepted as the best open source CMS out there. The closest competitor Drupal being over-complex for most small-medium sized websites and WordPress being improved with great features in 2011 version updates has played keyroles for this competition. In 2012, I expect WordPress to have a bigger leap in usage statistics.
E-Commerce in 2012:
E-Commerce has always been an ever-growing and crucial part of business since it was first born. Back in the day, there were few e-commerce platforms which were very popular. Every project was somewhat custom coded in a way. But time has changed. Today, most of the projects consist of similar needs and usually the only thing that changes is the design. As this is the case, it is now much easier to provide premium e-commerce turnkey services. In 2012, I expect e-commerce to be much more accessable for medium sized business owners and provide less business to open source developers for old platforms.
