Sunrise Promotions

Sunrise Promotions offers Web design, Web consultancy, Web promotion. We can also offer advice on security, with special emphasis on viruses and encryption.

Sunrise Promotions lays the emphasis on clean uncluttered Web pages with fast delivery of information.

Everyone is aware of the problem - Internet is too slow. The underlying problem is the lack of bandwidth. A problem that is compounded by poor Web page design. Pages that are cluttered with images that convey little if any information. Pages that guarantee maximum download time. Pages that guarantee that few people will see them. Graphics may superficially enhance a page but this is of transient value if visits to the the page are infrequent due to the access time.

Sunrise Promotions offers a minimalist approach. A page has to stand or fall on the text alone. Graphics are included but only where the graphics add to the information content of a page. The emphasis is on maximum download of information in the minimum time. To guarantee visits and return visits the page has to offer something useful to the user.
