What website developers dont want you to know

skinhancesocial

like any industry you are going to get good people and bad people.  the same can be said for web development.. some business owners will offer web development to others without really having a clue what web development actually entails.  some people think of web development as an after thought, but let me be the first to tell you having a good website is one of the most important things for any business.

other than yourself your website should be the most powerful sales tool that you have at your disposal.  so don’t fall for these 5 common mistakes:

1. Website hosting

Hosting a website doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, some companies will charge you a massive fee each month which could make you want to take out a second mortgage, but that doesn’t have to be the case.  web hosting can be expensive if you have a giant site with millions of users, but websites for small business owners don’t take up alot of space. so don’t pay a silly amount in fees for your business website.

2. your website should be search friendly

most cowboy website builders think that making a website is as simple as using a theme and changing a few colors,adding a logo and your content and its done.  these are the cowboy website builders, avoid them at all costs.  they maybe cheap but why waste money on a website that no one will ever find.

3.  your website should be responsive

its 2016 not 1999, don’t have a website that looks old and doesn’t work on mobile devices, otherwise once again you are throwing your money away. a website built in 2016 should be responsive as standard because if it isn’t then you are getting ripped off.  a responsive website makes your website easy to use and the search engines love a responsive site.

4. easy to update

a website that you cant update is going to become expensive very fast.  choose an agency that makes their websites easy to update.  if you do that your going to save you thousands over the life cycle of your website.

5. affordable

a good website is going to cost you.  But it should still be affordable, but it shouldn’t be cheap.  if you want something to represent you and your business then do you want something that is tacky and cheap or something that is of premium quality and does your business justice?

a good website that converts visitors into customers, is easy to use and update, is search friendly and affordable is going to be hard to find, luckily for you i know a small website agency in wales that offers all of the above and more.

Check out WeeAre they are a small agency in wales that help local business get online and get more leads.  we highly recommend them, they offer web design in wales and to uk businesses. Click Here to take a look at them.

 

Responsive web development what is it and why should you care?

responsive

Responsive web development quite simply is a website that is able to work and show its content correctly on all devices that are viewing it.  for example a computer screen, an ipad and a samsung galaxy.  your website should show across all devices like you want it to, it should make the user experience a good one and it should help your business get sales.

if your website does none of the above then your website isnt’ responsive and you my friend are losing customers to your competitors, yes your customers are ignoring your old tired website and they are choosing your competitors instead.  that sucks.

so what can you do about it?

the simple answer is to get a responsive website made.  find an agency that deals with responsive sites and then hire them.  one such agency that i recommend is one called WeeAre.  They are only a small agency based in wales but their work is of top quality, and they can help your business by getting you more leads.

Why is responsive important?

responsive design is important because search engines use if your website is responsive or not as one of their ranking protocols.  a responsive website allows the user to find their searched answers more quickly.  an unresponsive site does the opposite and websites that don’t answer the users query quickly enough are penalised in the search engine ranking pages.

You should also take into account that your users will thank you for it.  Imagine going on a website right now and looking for a bit of information that is important for you and you need it quickly, but the website you are on is old and you need to zoom in and out to find your information, you also need to zoom in to click on links, then zoom out to view the entire page.  I have one word nightmare!

Don’t make your website a nightmare for your users to browse otherwise you are only going to frustrate them.  if you frustrate your users then they are never going to buy what you are selling.

Responsive website design should come as standard with web agencies but i still see website design agencies that still build their websites like it was 1999.  if you don’t want an outdated website then i recommend WeeAre.

They offer web design pontypridd and to all other businesses in Wales and the UK
