Whether it’s a static page or a full-blown e-commerce site, a website is pretty much a prerequisite for most businesses these days. It’s an invaluable resource that lets you communicate with existing and would-be customers, which is why having a website that takes UX into consideration is so important.
But have you ever stopped to consider the security of your website? If you haven’t, you should. Companies with insecure websites risk losing business and being demoted in Google's search engine rankings.
Today, we’ll go through one of the most common ways websites can be secured: by using HTTPS.
If you’re looking to create a new website or redesign an existing one, it’s imperative that you consider UX in the web development process. Last week we went through the basics of UX, short for User eXperience, and why you can’t afford to ignore it when you’re embarking on a new web development project.
Whether you’re doing the project in-house or outsourcing it to a third-party developer, your design brief needs to factor in UX.
We expand on four UX questions you should ask to help you get started on your UX web development journey.
UX is a term that has been thrown around a lot in recent years but many people would have trouble describing what it is.
UX stands for user experience and generally referrs to everything that affects a user's experience with a product - it's the difference between a customer purchasing your product and abandoning their cart during a transaction.
UX plays an important role in web design because so many modern businesses connect with their customers and potential clients through their websites and apps. But UX in web development isn't just about having a beautiful website or web app with newfangled web functionalities.
We've decided to progressively move our services over to locally based Amazon Web Services (AWS) over the coming three months.
Getting paid should be quick and easy. When choosing a payment gateway provider there are many to choose from but not all gateways are born equal. Here at SiteSuite we’ve taken the guesswork out of choosing a payment gateway by partnering with eWAY, who are the best in the business.
In our last couple of SiteSuite newsletters we’ve been talking about the versatility of web apps (web applications) for any business. With the advances in technology in the last couple of years, these apps can now provide an enriched and interactive environment that can be used on any modern smartphone. Not only can they be used effectively for productivity gains but are powerful marketing tools as well, providing business opportunities not possible in the past.
When we think about web apps, we often just think about them as online sales and marketing tools, but they are much more than that. Web apps can be effective business tools that can provide significant gains in productivity and cost savings.
We all know that it’s possible to get a logo “designed” offshore for next to nothing. What many don’t understand is why that’s such a bad idea!
A logo isn’t just the business name with some pretty graphics. A logo is a crucial part of developing a graphic and verbal language for a business, this in turn becomes the foundation for your online presence, website, social media, and traditional offline media use.
What would happen to your business if you suddenly lost half of your potential customers?
This is exactly what might happen in April when Google releases an update focused on mobile friendly websites.
From the blog:
"This change will affect mobile searches in all languages worldwide and will have a significant impact in our search results. Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high quality search results that are optimized for their devices."
Over the last 12 to 18 months there have been numerous changes in the online marketing landscape. The majority of this change has been driven by Google as it endeavours to clean up a number of "fringe" SEO techniques that have been used to unfairly promote the search rankings of some businesses over others.
