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:

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!

In a world where everyone is a 'Professional iPhone Photographer' and point-and-shoots are as affordable as ever, it's important that your business stands head and shoulders above the rest by using professional photography. Anything other than that for your business won't say much for your product or brand and it's unlikely to hit the right spot with your intended target audience.

So now you know you need professional photography, but how can you justify the cost? Good quality photographs can be used for a multitude of different promotional activities, from social media to company vehicles to print marketing - the list is endless! Make the most of the photos you've had taken by using them across a variety of channels - elevating your brand and giving more people the opportunity to see your work.
