There are several ways to block advertising, but not all of them work. We've tested in several ways and we'll show you only those that really work. Let's check it out?

The Internet is full of advertising but is also full of new content. This is normal because the work of people who make content and dedicate their time is precious and paid for.

There are sites that "abuse" advertising, and it is against those that we rebel. Actually advertising when it's too much, it's sick.

Let's show you how you can block advertising on Android and iOS, so you can browse a cleaner Internet. Regarding Android, things do not always work if you have a custom ROM. That is why we leave several methods here.

 

For Android
Android is Google's operating system. It's free and open source so there are more alternatives and ways to work "against" the advertising ads. Here are the ways we have found to do this:

Using Opera Browser: Opera has been present for several years in the desktop version as a browser that has been adapting to the evolution of the internet. On Android it has been present for several years and has many users. It does not take anything special to block advertising, just install and ... it's done. Download on Google Play or click here.

Using Adblock for Android: AdBlock is a desktop extension where multiple browsers can run out of ads. But if you want to keep your browser and do not like Opera. Just install this app by searching for it on Google Play or click here.

Block popups on Chrome: If your problem is just popups (and you want to see the rest of the ads) in Chrome you have the settings (press the three points above, then in the settings) one option to block popups.

Enable Chrome save mode: In the same place as the previous option, you can also enable data saving, for pages to load faster without advertising. However, this method is not as effective as described above.

Some of these methods may also block advertising in apps outside the browser.

 

For iOSIOS is the system that Apple puts on iPhones. It is a closed system with fewer alternatives. But there are still good chances of blocking advertising. Let's do it:

You can only block ads in Safari and for this you install a popup blocker like Crystal. Then you go to Safari and activate the extension, following the steps in this image:

Relating sensory marketing to consumer experience

There are several approaches to marketing practice in practice. One of them is Sensory Marketing. Basically, we use the five senses of the human being to leverage sales, establishing a more optimized and complete communication, improving the experience of consumers. Understand better, in practice, how sensory marketing makes the difference: How it works? Surely, you've learned all five senses in preschool time, but it's worth remembering. Are they: Touch View Smell Palate or taste Hearing   The goal of any brand is to produce stimuli related to the five senses and communicate values. With sensory marketing, the senses are exploited strategically by the brands, increasing the potential of all its elements (whether in the promotional materials or the sales points). The great advantage of using this strategy is to be able to increase sales significantly, because it directly affects the consumer's emotions. In addition, brand positioning and identity are reinforced in the marketplace through these practices over time. Applying strategy Now that you know how sensory marketing works, it's important to know some strategies for use in each sense: View The visual resource is the most used in marketing strategies. In this sense, two areas need special attention: - Visual identity: Logo, symbols and colors make all the difference in brand recognition. Remember that colors have meaning and stimulate specific feelings and reactions for those who see them! - Physical store environment: The physical stores environment needs to be nice! Take care from the lighting to the decor and colors that will be used locally. This makes all the difference on the impression and the stimulus that will cause on the customer, depending on your goal!   Hearing It is an accepted fact that sound makes a total difference in our mood. Why not use this influence for the moment of your client's purchases? The idea, in this sense, is that the sound helps in inducing a certain emotion or attitude. If you need people to be agile in shopping, for example, the ideal is to put a song at a faster rate. However beware. Perhaps for your customer, a quiet and smooth song is more than enough to ensure a pleasant experience during the buying process. he will probably like to go through it again.   Smell Smells have a powerful influence awakening feelings and even memories in your costumers. To help in this process, the tip is to develop an essence or even use an existing one, which can refer the customer to your products or shopping experience. It is legal to use scents in your stores to ensure that odors outside the store do not disturb or damage your business environment. Invest also in the climatización of the place.   Touch Some researchs shows that when we touch the object we want, the possibility of buying is much greater. The strategy for this sense is linked to the experience that the consumer will have in the physical store. Climate control on the store makes the customer more comfortable. Take care of selecting the best textures for some objects such as armchairs, dresser curtains, counters and even the floor! Finally, of course, remember to leave the product in easy reach so that customers can touch it.   Palate or taste This is the most specific sense. Not all brands will be able to use it. But if you work with food, it should be very exploited. The tip is to always have proof of some food for the customers, which will give more credibility to the realization of the purchase. But even if your company is not from the food business, it's worth giving some kind of snack to the customers. This let them more comfortable in the environment and can give good results!   You see? These strategies are very easy to put into practice and can bring great results! Test and try out what works best for your brand!

Facebook Messenger on your website

In this article we´ll talk about Facebook Messenger, but this time inside your website. The proposal is to use the famous Facebook Messenger as a chat for customers on your site and boot automatic responses. Webhouse believes that associating technology with information is the shortest route to efficient results. With this tool, your customers can contact you or one of the contributors with a position on your company's Facebook page, directly from their website, starting a chat conversation on Facebook. There are already some solutions on the market that allow you to maintain a chat window directly on your site, but not with this level of efficiency. Let's explain why. The first advantage being, you recognize the customer. Using Facebook Messenger on your site assumes customer identification based on Facebook profile. So when you receive a chat from the site, it drops into the inbox of your company's Facebook page, automatically giving you all the data and profile of your customer, giving you a higher level of information to provide more efficient service and care. This does not require any login or pre-identification of the client like what happens in the traditional chat. The second advantage is the possibility to reflect on the likes and dislikes of your company's Facebook page a large part of the traffic that your site receives. Keeping the usual users of your website in line with your Facebook page is an important asset. Being Facebook one of the cheapest, most direct and efficient communication channels available on the internet. The third and final big advantage is the so-called Chat Boot. This feature isn´t used much, because its configuration is laborious, although highly efficient. Chat Boot is an automatic response service that Facebook Messenger provides, which allows you to create a set of Frequently Asked Questions with automatic default responses. You can create a list of Frequently Asked Questions associated with their response, and let Facebook Messenger Chat Boot help you improve your company's Facebook request response service. If you would like more information about applying this new technology on your website, please contact us using the form below.
