Top Tip:  Ensure your website is responsive across all devices, meaning it loads quickly and customises the experience across different devices - plus Google will loves mobile sites! 

Why:  In our modern digital world, your potential customers are checking you out on the go on smartphones and tablets. If your website doesn’t load properly, they’ll be less likely to contact you and more likely to go with your competitor. Viewers should be able to see pertinent details on your mobile version such as your offering, pricing, and, most importantly, contact details.

When:  As soon as possible; your potential customers are already browsing. You can test your URL against Google's Mobile-Friendly Test here . If it's not mobile-friendly, you can get details on what's wrong with your website such as the text is too small, the links are too close together, and more.

Pro Tip:  Your website should look similar on both mobile and desktop versions but it doesn't have to be exactly the same. In fact, due to the layout of mobile browsers, your website will appear much different to allow the viewer to clearly read the text on a smaller screen. Use this variation to get creative with your different versions. For instance, you could have a more dynamic menu style or even a slideshow to inspire your viewers.

Here is an example of Binfield Preschool's site on desktop, tablet, and mobile devices:

Alamo Blinds , a local showroom of blinds, shutters, curtains and outdoor living, came to us a couple of years ago for a new brand and website for their business after they left the franchise they were in. At the time, we supplied them with a distinctive look and cohesive website which served all of their needs. Now we have been working together to update both the brand and website to give it a more contemporary and established look to go with their successful business.

The Logo

The previous Alamo Blinds logo (pictured below left) was a flowing typeface with a sans serif slogan font. It was friendly, approachable and tidy, but the client felt that he wanted it to be updated to something that can be more clearly read on their vans when they are driving around. The new logo (below right) uses a typeface with more distinct shapes to the letters, making it easier to decipher from further distances. We have kept a friendly and approachable aspect to it in the slogan font, which overall means you keep the same feeling from the old logo, but with added readability and modernity.

What better way to sell gorgeous products than on a beautiful, sleek and modern website?  

Home by Rachel  provides beautiful home interiors, stunning jewellery and a bespoke range of hand-poured luxury candles. Rachel came to us with a bland but functional website that didn't entice people off the home page, so in our redesign we ensured that the site looked bright, welcoming and interesting.

With large, good quality images and sliders the site began to look a lot more attractive, and the new clearer layout made the site easier to navigate. The intimacy of the brand is represented through the personal feel of the website, whilst the stunning imagery indicates the thought that has gone into each quality product.

At the end of October a new version of Google Chrome was released that clearly labels any website without an SSL Certificate as ‘non-secure’. This will be shown in the browser bar clearly to the online user.

This will effect a huge range of websites, particularly e-commerce sites or any that contain input fields, like password requests and contact forms. Studies indicate up to 84% of online shoppers will abandon their purchase once seeing that a site is not secure ( Source ). Having an SSL certificate gives your website the green padlock, reassuring customers that they are in a safe location to purchase goods and enter their details.

Not only do your customers prefer secure sites, but Google does too. With Google favouring secure sites, your search engine rankings are more likely improve and your conversion rates more likely to increase. It’s simple!
