The Importance of a Responsive Web Design to Your Business

So, you started a business and it was successful. Awesome!  Then, you decided to expand to the internet to increase your foot traffic, sales, or company recognition. Great!  Now that your business is represented online, the breadth of possibilities is practically endless.  A solid online presence is a great way to display the important aspects of your business and to increase the effectiveness of a marketing strategy.  We are in a mobile, digital age, so in order to meet the needs of your clientele, having a website that works on all any device, regardless of screen size is a necessity.  Developing a responsive site design is the way to achieve this.

Works just as well on the computer as it does on the tablet.

Works just as well on the computer as it does on the tablet.

What Is Responsive Web Design?               

What does it even mean?  There are so many terms for websites and how they interact with technology, (mobile devices: cell phones, tablets, netbooks, etc.) and that is the main principle behind the term “responsive web design”.  Here is a chart that explains the variety of terms that describe how a site works on a mobile device:

responsive_web_table

For the sake of clarity, we are going to refer to all sites who adjust based on the device accessing them as “responsive”.  The method you choose to build your site with is up to you; this is more focused on why you want your site to be considered responsive more than how you choose to make it that way.

How Will Having A Responsive Website Help My Business?

Your website is the first thing a lot of your customers will see before even entering your physical store, assuming you have one.  You, or your company, spent a lot of time and money developing a website that encompassed the values of the business, presented information cleanly, is easily navigated, and highlighted the most important features of your company.  You want those factors to be evident online no matter how your clients choose to access your site.  You want the site that appears on a computer to look just as good on a tablet or smart phone.  It needs to be easy to use and provide all the information that is important on the go.  Culturally, we don’t stop for anything anymore, and a responsive website allows customers to connect directly with your business without having to be in front of a computer.

From a marketing perspective, a responsive website can enhance the effectiveness of your marketing campaign by allowing potential customers to instantly connect with you.  There is no delay or attempting to remember to “check that site out when we get home”.  Your customers can see your add and immediately look at your website.  Modern marketing often utilizes mobile devices to make advertisements more effective, so a responsive web design broadens your marketing options.

If you aren’t using a responsive design, you’re running the risk of your site not displaying properly.  Menus, alignments, or images could be skewed or proportioned incorrectly, your client may have to scroll around to find content, or it may be so muddled it’s illegible.  By implementing a responsive design, you know everything will be laid out clearly and the most important information can be featured conspicuously.

A responsive layout for your website will also assist in maintaining brand recognition.  By making your site responsive you will be able to ensure that your site looks the same whenever or wherever it is accessed.  This is especially effective if you choose to have an adaptive layout as that will give you more control over the specific placement of banners, images, and text.

As technology advances, more options become available for handheld devices.  For example, the iPhone alone has gone through four different screen sizes and six different screen resolutions since its initial release.   Having a responsive website not only allows your customers to see your site at its best as a representation of your business, but it also means there is less of a need to continually redevelop new layouts to keep up with the ever changing technology of mobile devices.

How Do I Make My Site Responsive?

Making your site responsive really depends on how your site is being, or was initially built.  For example, if you are using a content management system like WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal, you will be able to find a wide variety of themes that are already designed to be responsive.  If you are going down this path, be sure to check any custom CSS that may dictate the layout of your site before making it responsive.

If your theme isn’t already responsive, you can make it so in systems like Joomla through custom coding or modules like Bootstrap.  Our Support Center has a helpful article on how to do this!

If your site was custom built, you will want to contact your developer to see what options they have available to make your site responsive.  If you haven’t built your site yet, but know you are going to be working with a developer, be sure to ask if they include responsive designs in their services.

Responsive site layouts open a world of possibilities to your site and your business.  Not only does it allow you to ensure the online representation of your business is as neat and tidy as your storefront, but it will allow you to connect with more and possibly new demographics of customers.

how much spend advertising

How Much to Spend Online Marketing [Infographic]

Earlier in the year, we conducted a survey of website owners and managers to understand their online business. We wanted to learn something about the real issues that online business owners face when making decisions about their online advertising budget. Is social media marketing really free? Is it an important investment? The feedback may surprise you! As much as 35% of website owners are not spending on any marketing or advertising at all.

I have made a few assumptions in deriving this research, and for those academics who want to qualify the number crunching, please write a comment for me, and I’ll see if I can follow up personally. Following is an infographic showing some key results. The survey is still open, so we can take another look later on to compare differences in people’s spending budgets in 2013.

Demographics

We had 147 responders in June 2012. Our responders were prompted by our newsletters, and some social media feeds. The majority of the responders are therefore from our own customer base. Responders were divided into the amount they invested on their website hosting. Based on what they spend on web hosting, we have grouped the respondents by the type of hosting technology they use.

The ratios of groups sizes to one another seem to match patterns we see in our existing customer base. For example, more than half of the respondents are on a shared hosting plan. A smaller proportion of the respondents use Virtual Private Servers. Finally the smallest group spend on the dedicated servers.

147 respondents is too small a sample to give an accurate assessment of spending on online advertising. However, it is a significant pool to start to see spending habits and determine the focus for the next set of research. Let’s get started!

Website owner community: What portion of website owners are currently marketing?

Out of all the respondents that showed an interest in marketing costs, only 65% of them reported they actually put their hands in their pocket and spent money on promoting themselves. The average spend amongst those that did budget for online promotion was a surprisingly meager $202 per month.

We segregated spending into three different categories.

  • Spending on online advertising This includes all forms of paid advertising including Facebook paid ads, Google Adwords and Display Networks.
  • Spending on SEO – or Search Engine Optimization. This includes text-brokering, paying for press releases, link building, CRM subscriptions and analysis tools.
  • Spending on Social Media. This includes monthly subscriptions to CRMs for social media management, automation and scheduled posts tools, multiple account management tools.

 

How much do website owners spend on online advertising?

# respondents Web Hosting Totals Facebook ads SERPs Ads Display Network
147 All WebHosting Plans $12,730 $1,370 $7,070 $4,290
82 Shared Hosting $3,920 $650 $1,810 $1,460

Across 147 respondents,  $12,730 a month is being poured into advertising. More than half of this money is going directly into Google Adwords Search Advertising. Of course dividing these numbers up into average spending across each web hosting group reveals a general trend that can be seen in the infographic. The more hosting horsepower individuals are investing in, the more advertising dollars they are spending.

What is not shown on the graph though is something harder to explain: That out of our sample of respondents the biggest pool of spending are those in VPS hosting, attempting to draw in their traffic mainly through Search advertising.
One insight the survey results seem to offer, is that as websites progress up in resource requirements, advertising focus moves away from paid search listings, to banner advertising on display networks.

How much do website owners spend on SEO?

# respondents Web Hosting Totals SEO Tools PR SPIN CRM
147 All WebHosting Plans $5,390 $2,940 $1,110 $1,340
82 Shared Hosting $2,300 $1,290 $460 $550

SEO spending is hard for people to quantify, so the questions were designed to prompt users into thinking about their spending habits.

Classic SEO spending comprises of subscriptions to SEOmoz analysis tools, and a lot of time backlinking and site restructuring. This represents the “SEO Tools” column. Next I have “PR Spin”, prompting individuals to admit to budgeting for text-brokering, press releases, or maybe even paid link-building services. Finally, and I think this is the most important for modern SEO, is the investment in CRM suites like Buzzstream for tracking those new webmaster to webmaster relationships and general business development.

The spending reports are not surprising. The biggest pool of spending is represented by those using Shared Hosting. These individuals are competing with other thousands of similar more established businesses. As the business becomes more steadfast and require more resources due to high traffic, they focus on more on embedding themselves into the web ecosystem using CRMs.

 

How much do website owners spend on Social Media?

# respondents Web Hosting Totals SMM Suites automation web 2.0 plugins
147 All WebHosting Plans $1,290 $430 $500 $360
82 Shared Hosting $440 $180 $150 $110

15 Dedicated Hosting $10 $10 0 0

Overall, Social Media tools receive less monetary commitment than any other form of online promotion. Even if you add in spending on Facebook promotions at an additional $1,370 across the board for all website groups, this total of $2,660 per month across our entire respondent pool represents a small amount of commitment.

This result was surprising. The importance of social media engagement for businesses is constantly over-hyped, yet here we have results that show it is the smallest portion of spending across the board by all online business.

Perhaps the general public opinion is that social media is free, and therefore should not be invested in. Our survey attempted to draw out any hours used and not accounted for by asking respondents what hours they spent doing online activities. There was simply not enough hours tallied up to draw any meaningful conclusion. There were not enough hours in any one category of activity to determine if site owners focus more on one job than another in marketing their websites.

One consistent fact across all responses, was that there is an even distribution of spending among all website owners. An average spend of less than $10 per person per month and no significant big spenders makes the social media marketing scene a steady outflow, but not an investment spend.

Want Free Content To Help Develop Your Website?

We aren’t just a webhosting company. We want your websites to thrive and host valuable information to generate your online business. Are you stuck with ideas on how to flesh out your website and need a quick boost of content to keep your audience reading? Here are three great tips you can put into immediate use to get Google crawling and your visitor traffic sticking around.

1./ Infographics

Infographics are great because they encourage your visitors to engage and scroll around for longer to disseminate the information. There is no ranking penalization for duplicate content, and they are quick and easy space fillers. Great ways to stimulate discussion on your website is to present your own critique of the infograph. Not only is that original, but your insight gives the reader a deeper understanding of your abilities as a contractor. Infographics are also readily pinnable for free publicity via Pinterest.

Is it a national and social problem that people don’t know how to research?. Social networks have allowed the majority of us to believe information is readily available. Take a look at Yahoo! Answers; these questions are easily searchable via Google, Bing, or any search engine. Type a question in on Yahoo’s homepage search bar and find a solution. Google’s interactive searchbar even does math and conversions for you. The skill itself of “Research” has become diluted in it’s meaning.

Today I’m exposing a range of web 2.0 research tools you’ve probably never heard of. This world of online data is important for small business, website owners, college students, interviewees, and analysts. The format is going to be a fairly open forum for debate, opinions, and shared experience, here are the guide questions to stimulate your thoughts.

Questions to follow a round of introductions: I’ve prepared a couple of handouts for you to keep track of in this huge subject!

snagit_screenshot_layering_and_canvas_editing

Is there a Mobile App equivalent to Snagit?

After intense searching and testing, I have found one mobile app that reigns above all others to compare with Snagit‘s unbeatable screenshot educational sharing tool. The winning contender is… PicSay! For those of you who like to engage co-workers and audiences with the wonderful tools offered by Snagit, I knew I had a hard task on my hands to find anything remotely comparable.
For those of you who are wondering why I’m raving Snagit here is a montage of just a few of the cool tools I love in this browser application:

As yet, Techsmith have not yet released a mobile app version of their Screengrabbing tool Snagit. So in the mean time, I was forced on the hunt to find the best available solution. And for anyone that’s vaguely involved in writing and explaining technical content, especially whilst on-the-go, I’m sure you’ll agree there’s a gap in the market for this software.

A search for picture editing and screen capture brings up hundreds of apps for your iOS or Android Mobile device, but they are all geared towards picture effects not ‘in-picture’ frame and layering effects.

With a little work around you can compile just the technical explain it material you need from a screen capture on your mobile device using PicSay:

It can layer objects, but unfortunately not additional segments of screenshots which I would say is the major portion missing from this app that would otherwise make this a near perfect competitor to Snagit.

There are all the usual tools such as rotate, cursor effects, re-framing or canvas resizing. I Particularly love the export feature which is more versatile than Snagit; being able to share to virtually any other app loaded on your mobile device is pretty ingenious!

Overall if you’re looking for a technical explain-it bit of sharing software for screen capture and graphics from your mobile device, then until Snagit comes up with a version, PicSay is the closest app I’ve found.

Facebook Template

Pin this FB Filmstrip Hack [Cool Facebook Template]

Download the FB Filmstrip Template here:

Facebook Template

A little while ago we published a Photoshop Template complete with Guidelines so you could create your own Facebook Page Timeline cover. Now here’s a quirky template for you to customize presentations of your Facebook Albums on the Timeline.

You better Pin this useful map of how filmstrips work on Facebook!


a. New Images, Appear Left-to-right. Facebook will automatically present them on your timeline in this order. It’s always the first photo of your set in the primary position, followed by a string in the order you uploaded them underneath. Simple? try to keep it that way as an album of four images at a time, because further uploads to the same album can start to become messy…
b. Further uploads in the same time frame, Right-to-Left. will appear as a film strip with the most recent thumbnail on the left. Facebook will only show the latest 3 uploaded photos. All photos no-matter what their layout will be re-framed to a centralized square of 133px to display as the thumbnail in the film-strip.
c. Additional edits to the album, can end up with your timeline post looking a bit tricky. Removing images from the stream, additions to the album that aren’t in groups of three, will end up in the film strip showing the two earliest un-presented additions to the album in the left-to-right format, with the latest image up front.
d. Highlighted album will show the film strip running Left-To-Right in order of upload, no matter if you swap images around in your album afterwards

Here’s our attempt at the Facebook Album Hack;

I’m looking forward to screencapping a bunch of reader’s responses so get on and show me your FB Hacks!

 

 

Facebook Cover sizes (520x400)

Smarten up your Facebook Brand Page with our Adobe Template

We’ve put together a Facebook Template Download of some standard facebook sizes:

  • Facebook Cover Photo 851 x 315 px
  • Facebook Profile Photo 160 x 160 px
  • Facebook Tab Photos 112 x 75 px

Click here to download the facebook cover photo template –>

Now to get started, what I really mean by ‘Smarting up your Facebook Brand Page’ is actually a double-entendre. I won’t go into the specifics of setting up Facebook Timeline here, because I’ve given you the template, and aspects of design related optimization are a whole area of study.

Instead I’m going to focus on making smarter use of your Facebook Brand page, exposing some of the recipes to get you the most clickthrough, traction, and interaction. Obviously most brands that have a lot of consumer awareness about them are already going to have visibility and so probably aren’t optimizing the most out of their pages. I’m not saying they don’t need to, they just aren’t concerned with it.

However, the tact has to be a lot more objective for the start-up, small business owner, or consultant level business. Your numbers are going to be small to start with, every fan counts, and here’s what I recommend to make sure you aren’t losing out on every single opportunity that presents – In a nutshell.

Facebook Links

There is NO excuse to not capitalize on click-through to your website. After all, you’ve gone to all that effort of branding your page using our facebook template, and you want your customers to find you. Don’t anticipate or expect people will be inclined to navigate to your ‘About’ page when you can remove that extra step and Facebook will GIVE you a live link back to your website. This link will appear right in the heat zone where visitors will first  see it.

Here’s how to get the live link showing right where your new fans can click through to check you out:

  1. As page administrator, click the ‘About’ section. It will open up a page description.
  2. Look for the opportunity to ‘Edit’ in the right-hand corner. Click that to open up a form page.
  3. Somewhere near the bottom of the form page there is the ‘About’ field. No HTML is accepted here so you can’t put in strings of <a href=”code”> in here! However, if you prefix your url with [http://] like –> http://YOURDOMAIN.COM Facebook will automatically convert it to a live link.

The same process of applying a prefix to your domains ‘http://’ will often be converted on many sites not just Facebook to a live link, so it’s a habit to definitely take on board.
