RedChip – Red chip stocks, both Micro Cap Stocks and Small Cap Stocks

Posted by on July 31, 2012 | Comments

Phew!!! This time the site which has come across my way and which I am about to review might interest a lot of you guys out there but let me tell you – the very first look left me bamboozled. Before I move on to the review, just a brief glance on what the site http://www.redchip.com/ is all about. Confused by the name, eh? I was too!! Although a very simple name but with a very different meaning – something that only business tycoons could associate themselves with. Technically speaking, a Red Chip is a concern founded in Mainland China and is incorporated globally besides being enlisted on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Red chip stocks, both Micro Cap Stocks and Small Cap Stocks, have to meet the requirements laid down by the HKSE, which gives them the shape of a major channel for overseas investors desirous of chipping in the swift development of the Chinese economy.

Now, as I was surfing through the homepage of this site, I noticed a very confusing yet interesting line – “Discovering Tomorrow’s Blue Chips Today.” This simply represents the motto of the company- implying the nurturing of small companies into large multi-functional ones. RedChip Companies was founded way back in 1992 as a Small Cap Stock Research firm, but over the years it has progressed into a fully fledged PR firm with hundreds on NASDAQ, NYSE and AMEX stocks as its clientele.

With offices spread over different nations and a robust group of employees, this company provides a large number of services beginning from writing press releases to Research reports, telemarketing and Top Stock Picks. Also, the business has a quite strong SNS integration and provides services like Video Podcasts and Internet TV.

Coming to the website, looks a little clumsy despite the professional look. The site has a pretty simple three-column layout with a video in the centre and reports and new beneath it. The right side of the screen is filled up with ads, tweets and some other links. Not much use of colors has been made and the site looks pretty boring – so you can’t expect much traffic from casual visitors.
Navigation is pretty simple yet confusing with very small menus and a lot of options. The site is littered with a lot of unnecessary ads and links and on browsing carefully you’ll notice a couple of graphics inserted on almost every page. The site takes a lot of time to load on an average connection – owing to the fact that there are so many pages bundled together.

The site has a lot of content all over it and most of it is meant only for people involved in stocks – for the rest it is absolutely confusing. Overall, this is a website that you’ll love if you are into stocks and shares and are looking for some necessary help. A 8 on 10 for this one.

Mahnkeconsulting – Get Your Home Mold Inspection

Posted by on July 31, 2012 | Comments

I ain’t pretty sure about you but the domain of real estate and consulting has at all times fascinated me. Still, I never got the hang of things like Mold Testing or Mold Inspection. I read through a number of websites with consulting methods explained, where it was claimed that I would completely grasp such concepts in a matter of few minutes. I ran across the whole text twice in less than 10 minutes and I must admit I certainly appreciate them better than I did earlier. Speaking about all this, I would not allow you to linger on consulting anymore and would now come back to today’s review – www.mahnkeconsulting.com, a complete one stop solution for contract based issues –from audit to Mold Inspection Orlando firm.

Now, as the name suggests, this is the official website of Orlando Mold testing firm, Mahnke Consulting – a firm providing tools to contractors and subcontractors to meet government compliance and regulatory standards. Started way back in 1999, this is a company that provides services to clients with large projects to smaller ones with advisory needs. However, this isn’t a site that would excite or come to use for a layman. In fact, this is a website only for those involved in contracting business.

First thing which I noticed when I got to this website is the sheer boring look – yes, the looks pretty drab and boring for a business with such glowing opportunities and where presentation plays such an important role. Very minimal and in fact not many colours have been made – a yellow border on the top is the only color used; rest of the site is monochrome. The site builder has tried to give it a very professional look – though looks like he has failed miserably in doing this. The layout is pretty simple too – navigation on the left while text is on the right. Navigation is pretty simple though laggy. At times, you would notice a glitch here and there. Although, there aren’t any ads and only a few pictures, the site still takes a lot of time to load and this is again a very bad example of what haphazard encoding can lead to.

Coming to the text, there is plenty of it available on the website, and most of it is written in a pretty convincing manner. In fact, text is all that you would notice on the website. Browse through the portfolio section and I am pretty sure that this is where the visitors’ interests lie. A long list of high profile achievements makes it pretty clear that this is not ‘just another consulting firm.’ In fact, I must admit that I was pretty impressed by the portfolio section and would strongly recommend it to all you contractors out there. Overall, the website isn’t as good as it should be but the business needs no description. A 7 on 10 for this one.

Mahnkeconsulting – A simple package!

Posted by on July 27, 2012 | Comments

www.mahnkeconsulting.com is the official website of Mahnke consulting, which is known for its consultation services to most administrative Services related to USG-funded programs. The company was founded in the year 1999 and since then they are doing a remarkable job in the field of CPSR and DCAA Audit. Their target customers are mainly small to medium size contractors who do not have big budgets to handle big projects. Mahnkeconsulting.com comes to their rescue by consulting them on how to deal a project right from project cost accounting, procurement, Incurred Cost Submission, contract administration to customer audits. In short, they apply the acquired skill sets from big firms to accommodate small budgets of smaller contractors.

Talking about the website, they have kept it very simple without much usage of graphics or colors. The website just serves the purpose of providing all the information regarding their services. The background color is white and light yellow which perfectly goes with the subject. The homepage has a detailed introduction to the company and the website which is included in two different headers. The introductory paragraph defines the purpose of the website and what it is all about. The left side of the homepage consists of six menus. The homepage does look neat and have relevant information; still it’s lacking that appeal which instantly catches a visitor’s attention. One may find the website boring as you feel like reading a text book. I very much missed a blog section which has almost become mandatory today. Also, there is no social networking block for the customers to get connected with company.

On the plus side, the website downloads really fast and because it has limited number of menus, one can easily find the matter he is looking for without much roaming here and there. The logo of the company appears right at the top left of the homepage which lets anyone know whose website it is and what it has to offer. All the menus and links are working fine which makes navigation really easier. Also there are no broken links and all the related pages are well connected to one another via links.

Content wise, “principal” page covers the details of the professional accomplishments, work experience in the field of their CPA, Linda Mahnke. The page “Training” covers the whole information on the various training programs offered by the firm. I liked the page “Resources” as it almost appeared like an ocean of possible information for the new entrepreneurs. The resources page has many links, few of them are listed below and few appear on the top. Each link takes you to the respective page of detailed information on the chosen matter. I liked their coverage on the topic of “budgeting in a job cost environment”, where every facet of job costing has been covered brilliantly. I would have really appreciated if all the links appeared on the top of “Resources” page had appeared on the top of the homepage.

In short, the website perfectly suits the line “simpler, the better!”

All the menus and button are working perfectly fine which has made the navigation really hassle free. I would have appreciated more if they also had included a blog section and social networking widgets. These two features are very common and necessary to reach out to maximum number of prospective customers on the internet.

Content wise, “instant quote” page lets anyone get a quote instantly by filling out the relevant details of the items to moved and the place from where you’re moving and the destination place. They have different plans for all kinds of moving such as local moving, long distance moving and commercial moving. Each option has been covered with detailed description about the matter. They promise to quote you with the most competitive price. Commercial quotes cannot be found online and you need to make an inquiry by contacting them over phone. The number has been given for the same. “About us” page covers all the necessary information about the company. I liked the “testimonials” section as previous customers’ experiences give the prospects, a good idea about the service. Of all, I very much liked the section “your move”. The page has some really valuable information for people who are planning to move. It mentions all the necessary steps to take before and in the course of movement.

The questions and answers are definitely like an eye opener with so much information on the matter. However, I found the homepage look a bit cluttered. One has to scroll down and down to go read the entire thing. They could have involved the details in a separate “FAQ” section. But, the content is definitely of high quality and truly justifies with the subject. Also, a social networking block is missing. On the plus side, one good thing to notice is that they have provided direct links in all the pages which are very well visible to the user. The format is easy with font size of the texts is large enough to be readable.

There isn’t any usage of flashy colours, photos or texts for displays unlike other sites. There is a menu called “What is trust deed?” on the homepage, which takes one to the webpage that explains how they do their job. I also liked the trust deed wizard which can show you results on if you’ll be relieved form the debts within the next 36 months or not. It is a kind of calculator using which one can check if he or she is eligible to avail the services. This feature is like an attractor which would prompt anyone to use it. Contact phone numbers of their different branches have been given on the top right.

In short, the site is a good package with almost all the necessary features to see. All the pages are well laid out and rich in quality content.
