What Is The Purpose Of A Website?
It’s a fact that nowadays, you can’t get by without a website. It’s one of your main avenues for attracting new customers and advertising what you do.
That being said, it’s unfortunately very easy to end up with a poor website for a variety of reasons. Whether it has a clunky design, isn’t mobile responsive or loads too slowly, chances are customers will click out without really learning about your business and the great value you offer.
At Digital Surfer, our expert website designer and developer knows all the tricks to create sleek, responsive websites that truly represent your business and the services you offer.
Why Have A Modern Website?
While print advertising is still around, more often than not people will head straight to the internet to source what they need. If your business doesn’t have a website, it may as well not exist at all in these terms. A ‘modern’ website needs to combine beauty, functionality and strategy to entice your customers to take the actions you want them to – whether that’s picking up the phone, sending an email, or buying a product.
You will also be able to promote your business in a variety of new ways, using your website to easily inform customers about your industry, or let them know about specials you may be running.
Time For A Refresh Or Redesign?
Do you have a website already, but maybe it just needs to be updated? We’d all love to build a website and be done with it, letting it be there for whenever a customer stumbles across it.
However, research suggests that because of how fast trends and technology move, websites should be updated every 2-3 years to not only keep up with what’s in style but also ensure it meets best practice standards for speed and responsiveness.
We’ve all clicked open a website that’s a few years old that not only looks outdated but can’t be used on a mobile phone. Not keeping up in these areas will mean that customers click away and you’re losing business. Or, if your website is hosted on Business Catalyst or Adobe Muse, you’ll need to make a change before the services stop.
If your website needs a refresh or redesign, reach out to us at Digital Surfer. Our web design Brisbane team will update your website to the highest standards, no worries.
Is Your Website Mobile-Responsive?
We’ve all been looking for something on our phones and clicked off because whatever website we were looking at was difficult to use on the small screen. In the last few years, we’ve seen a shift in how people use the internet and search online – that is, more people are now using their phone to use the internet and find the things they need.
That’s why it’s so important to ensure your website is mobile responsive as well as looking good on a desktop. Aspects of mobile responsiveness include resizing the site to look best on smaller screens and making sure the spacing is consistent so that content can still be read easily. This can also include displaying widgets or menus differently to accommodate the size, ensure there’s no increase to loading speed, and to be easily navigated with a touch screen.
Ongoing Website Maintenance
As well as doing the initial design, redesign or refresh of your website, our web development Brisbane team perform ongoing maintenance to your website. This involves updating plugins as necessary, backing up data, and just generally ensuring the website doesn’t crash or otherwise go down.
This is an important part of having a website, as it allows us to ensure your website is always operating at its peak for customer usability and interaction. A difficult-to-use website with parts that don’t work will only make customers want to click off.
We make sure to protect your website against outdated technology. With regular backups and routine updates to plugins and other aspects of your website, we can ensure that all of the moving parts work together so that nothing falls through the cracks.
This also allows us to restore previous versions in the event that something does go wrong.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the average cost for a website design?
This is a difficult one to answer, as it depends on a lot of factors, such as size, how many pages, what design, what functionality you need, and more. That said, at Digital Surfer, we sit down with you to get an understanding of what your website needs and what your goals are so that we can provide you with an upfront quote. We pride ourselves on being as transparent as possible, and that includes no hidden costs for your website design.
Which website builder is best?
Different developers prefer different things, but here at Digital Surfer we build WordPress based websites. Not only is it one of the most versatile platforms, with plugins and functionality for everything your website might need, it has the staying power to be around for many years. In fact, many people who have Business Catalyst websites that are in dangert of being lost when the service closes are now migrating to WordPress.
Will my website be mobile friendly?
Yes, we put a great emphasis on making sure that your website both looks great on a desktop screen and on a smaller screen, such as a tablet or smartphone. We do this because there has a been a shift in recent times of more online activity being performed on a mobile - so if your website doesn’t look good, or is difficult to use, your customers will leave and go somewhere else.
