When we are advising you on the best possible solutions to fit your individual needs Responsive Design will most likely be talked about. Responsive Design is essentially multiple websites all in one. A single website "responds" by altering it's layout depending on the type of device or screen size a user visits the site with. A website built for a huge desktop monitor doesn't always convert well when you attempt to cram it all on a small mobile device screen and vice versa. For this reason responsive websites seamlessly change their layout to switch between mobile and desktop screens. Beyond an improved conversion rate, one of the benefits of Responsive design is that when you push a website update, you only have to upload the changes to one website as opposed to a desktop, and then again to a totally different mobile website. Since over 50% of today's internet traffic comes from mobile devices, it makes sense to accomidate for those users when designing your site; your bank account will thank you later.
Speed is king. If you have a slow site that takes what seems like an eon to load, you could have the best website content in the world but no one will ever see it. We use the latest coding technicques to ensure that your new website is blazing fast no matter what browser or device your customer is using. We minimize the size of each page so that there is less data to squeeze through your internet tubes resulting in a faster page load time.
With the rise of less powerful mobile devices (comparatively to PCs) optimized code is essential for a streamlined fast browsing experience for your potential customers. In addition to proven correlations between website speed and conversion rate, search providers like Google are now penalizing and restricting traffic to websites that are not up to their page load time standards. Bottom line is website speed is no longer something that is or should be ignored from profitable websites.
What good is a website if your customers can't find it? If you haven't heard of Search Engine Optimization (SEO) before it is roughly defined as strategies and techniques used to rank higher in search engies resulting in more organic traffic. Part of these strategies used to get more traffic focus around the code of the website or webpage. In order to rank higher you must not only execute the wepage structure properly, but you must also know the proper search queries to target. It is important to research and analyze what searches your customers are doing in order to rank highly for the highest searched queries. It doesn't do you any good to rank highly for a term that only you search for, that's why research is important. Our SEO experts go over each website to ensure that the proper on-page structure has been built in and the highest search volume keywords are being targeted.
