87% of the world’s population uses a mobile device. 65% of those mobile owners access the mobile web, and 31% use their mobile as their primary access. These numbers are large enough to require attention. If your content is not designed to be accessed on a mobile device with a small screen and limited resources, it doesn’t exist. It your site is not responsive- you are missing out on profitable conversions and conversations.
Think of your website as the storefront for your business on the internet. Your website is often the first impression you make on people. Consequently, it is absolutely essential for your website to be aesthetically pleasing and something that people want to explore.

Before you can have a beautiful, engaging website, you first need to have the underlying framework put in place. Behind the scenes of a great website, there is a lot going on. CMS, MRP, POS, Ecommerce, APIs, Ruby, Python, PHP, ASPX, XML, JSON, jQuery, CSS, HTML; to the average person, these words can sound like another language. They may have even put you to sleep by now, I can’t believe you read them all!
Necessary applications need to be properly installed so that the website functions properly. Most importantly, you need a knowledgeable person with scalable technical and human resources to handle the administration of your website. Premium functionality and tight integration of internal and external systems cannot be achieved by amateurs or DIY’ers.
A common problem is- too often people don’t know enough about web development to choose a partner who won’t lead them astray. This is serious business- do not be led down a path of archaic technology, or end-of-life propriety platforms. We’ve met clients who are stuck in licensing agreements for platforms like Visual Fox Pro- n/m, ask a geek! Here’s some questions you can ask anyone you are considering to partner with:
What server side script will you be running? Is that search engine friendly? How will you secure my server, scripts, and database from malicious exploits?
Will my website run on open source software? Are there any licensing fees? Is there thorough documentation available online and developer support online?
Who owns the content on my site? Who owns my domain name, hosting account, and how much are they per year? What support do you offer?
Can you integrate my website with my office, warehouse, manufacturing, or other systems? Will data traverse both ways?
What is your disaster recovery plan for my website? How frequently is my content and data backed up? What is your availability in the event of disaster?
Have you ever been recognized or awarded for your work?
