Lima Bean's word-class web solutions

For the first few years, and to great success, the company's main focus was on developing world-class e-commerce, CMS and custom developed websites. As Lima Bean expanded, so too did their clients' requirements and the company subsequently chose to branch out into internet marketing and mobile web design, both services proving to be a natural extension of what they were already offering on an exceptional level. 30 Aug 2011 Read more

To then be able to gather information that is garnered from these sites and use it to effectively target them with content, products and specials that they actually want, is a massive bonus and one that needs to be carefully considered. 4 Aug 2011 Read more

The importance of a high quality website
Years ago, website design, an intuitive user experience, conversion optimisation, quality content and search engine ranking weren't given as much consideration as they are today. Back then, if you even had a website, it was good enough marketing leverage. Today however, it's no longer that simple. 20 Jul 2011 Read more

Top web development company Lima Bean has been hard at work the last few months with the international and local versions of the Mail Blaze website. The international version was developed and launched two months ago and makes use of PayPal's highly sophisticated API that minimises human intervention when signing up and making account payments. The local version, which was completely re-created to keep in line with the international version, went live last week. Paypal was not an option for the local site though, as it does not yet allow users to be charged in South African rands. 10 Dec 2010 Read more
