We all know how important it is to have a mobile friendly web design at this day and age. Almost everybody uses their smartphone or tablet to browse the Internet.

From UI/UX to Usability

Here are some simple fixes that you can apply to your site today. User Experience (UX Design) 1. Test for simplicity and proper functionality. Does your shopping cart correctly adjust to users adding or removing items? Do actions on your site provide a clear solution and are they instantly rewarding to users? Are there any browsing activities that are redundant? Use and test your site extensively to find any elements that might take away from the browsing experience. 2.

The Importance of Aligning Your Website Design with a Corporate Marketing Strategy

Is your website design meeting the needs of your corporate marketing strategy? Right now, you may have an outstanding looking web design but it may actually be counterproductive to your marketing strategy. When it comes to design, many companies focus on the brand, the website conversion goal, and even trying to get the visitor to take some kind of action. Those are legitimate focus points to design a site around but not necessarily ideal and only ones you should focus on. To help you understand, let’s look at the strategy of SEO. If the core marketing strategy is to use the search engines to generate traffic, then the website must be aligned for that goal. The website must be optimized, the code behind the website has to be SEO friendly, and the website must load quickly. Many website owners often make small mistakes because they have multiple goals for the…

Here’s What’s Working in Web Design Today

Web design has come a long way over the last few years. What used to be accepted as normal can actually be something that makes you blend in with the masses rather than helping you stand out. That’s why you need to know what is working today to be relevant to your audience. So without further ado, here is a list of what design trends businesses are having success with and why. 1.

Using Responsive Web Design and UI Elements The Right Way

If you are run an eCommerce business or depend on mobile traffic for your business, you’ve probably been hammered the benefits of responsive design into your head one too many times.
