Just over two and half years ago Bright Cloud Studio hit the ground running partnering with clients to design and build custom websites and online marketing. With so much work we've had very little time for ourselves. Our first website, though it served us well, was in need of an update to fully represent the quality of our design and development work. Over the last year, we've been slowing plugging away at a new site and we're happy to announce that it's live!
A responsive website is necessary in this day and age, where most people surf the internet on smart phones and tablets. Desktop computers and laptops are being used much less than in previous years.
There are numerous types of devices on the market today that are used for online browsing. A responsive website will automatically adjust to the size and format of whatever device is being used. Websites need to be visually pleasing and easy to navigate on all devices to provide visitors information about your company.
If a site is not responsive, users have to pan the text back and forth to read it and the overall layout may be compromised as well. This is frustrating to most people and they will most likely leave the site and find one that is easier to navigate.
Let's take a deeper look at the benefits of a responsive website:
Online shopping is mainstream. Everyone does it and in lieu of recent in-store credit card security issues, it's often viewed as more secure than going to a retail store or giving your credit card to a random customer service rep on the phone.
Trust in online shopping is not an issue anymore. The issue is getting your visitors to shop on your website over a competitor's. In order to capture your audience and make the sales, your e-commerce website needs to be current and implement several very important elements. Here are seven things to consider when developing or restructuring your e-commerce site:
Growing an email subscriber list is paramount to the success of many businesses. Regularly emailing your customers informs them of discounts, new products or services you offer. You will also keep your business in the forefront of their minds while showing your expertise.
Websites and email campaigns achieve higher success when they are pleasing to the eye and easy to understand. Professional, custom design and branding gives viewers a stronger recognition of who you are as a company, a sense of trust, and sets your business apart from your competition.
