KEY TAKEAWAYS

Responsive Website building:

Website that responds/resizes itself to whatever screen it’s being viewed on.

  • This ensures that everyone has a great experience
  • Eliminates the need of having more than one site for different viewers (ie: one site for desktop and one for mobile)
  • Mobile is very important in creating or updating your site
    • majority of all searches and information seeking is done online.

Rule of Thumb to update or change a website?

  • Good rule of thumb is to budget money aside to prepare to rebuild your website every couple of years
  • At least updating at least every 1 or 2 years based on changing technology and tools

Building a Homepage:

  • Pick top 1-3 objectives for your website and that is the information to place on your homepage
  • Social Proof in form of reviews
  • Tidbits of info such as Location of company
  • The more info on homepage, the longer it takes to view= less Search Engine friendly website

Building Successful Websites Mistakes NOT to make:

  • Not putting contact info where customers can find it
    • Always put contact info out in the open where everyone can see it
    • Normally in header of website in top right corner
  • Not putting some kind of form or way of contacting you electronically
    • Gives your customers a different way of getting in touch with you
    • Offers some sort of instant gratification
    • Always test your forms at least once a month
  • Going crazy with using too many plugins
    • Takes up a lot of resources and makes site run slower
    • Leaves a lot of loop holes for security breaches
    • Be cautious with Plugins

Top Three Things Your Website MUST Have:

  1. Mobile friendly checker
    • If website isn’t mobile friendly, you will be dropped from search engine results
  2. Great Calls to Action
    • Clear, concise, and to the point
  3. A form to collect Email addresses/contact info
    • Give away something free and helpful in exchange for an email address
