building your own website

Prior to you start worrying about website theme, color schemes, and domain names, you determine what system you're most likely to construct your website with.

What do I mean by "platform"?

Well, back in 2004 when people began with internet advancement, many websites are using HTML (code), CSS as well as Flash. This takes a great deal of time to discover and also were complicated to master for any beginner.

That's why lots of people still assume producing a website from square one is tough or requires a great deal of coding as well as style abilities-- however that's no longer true!

In 2016, material administration systems (CMS) like WordPress have actually made producing a web site accessible to everybody.

So in other words, a material management system (or site structure system) is a user-friendly platform for constructing websites and also handling your personal on-line material, rather than using a lot of loosened HTML web pages.

building your own website platformAs you can see from the chart over, nearly half of the sites on the net are working on the WordPress website platform. From basic blog sites to stunning company sites and online shops, the WordPress CMS can take care of nearly any type of kind of web site.

But chances are, one of these three will fit your unique situation the best (whether that’s firing up a simple business website or running a fully functioning social network).

Questions To Ask Your Website Designer

If you are looking for a web designer to help with your next small business website, ask the following questions, to avoid major issues during the project.

We’ve outlined the top 3 questions to ask your website designer or a potential website service provider before committing to a new site. The answers will help ensure a good fit and a good return on your investment once you start your online presence or revamp your website service after a decade not updating anything new to make it live or engaging with your prospective audience.

TIPs and TRICKs

 

3 questions to ask a website provider:

Question 1 Who will write the content for my website?

  • Content is arguably the single most important factor in converting website visitors into new patients. Your website content is what will educate prospective clients about your products and services and ultimately help them decide whether or not they trust you and want to buy your service.
  • If you’re considering a do-it-yourself website, keep in mind that the content creation will rest on you. Writing persuasive, SEO-friendly website content is an art, so make sure you have the time, energy, and writing skills if you go this route.
  • If you decide to partner with a website company, find out who will do the writing. Many companies have writing staffs available to revise and edit content that you supply, whereas others have a professional writing team or staff to create original content for you.
  • Our writing team creates the unique content based on a brief telephone interview with you so that your voice shines through in professionally written content.

Question 2 – What will you do after my website is live?

In your research for a website, you will encounter two types of providers:

1. who sell websites as products and

2. who provide websites as a service

  • The hard work is far from over when your website is launched, yet many discount providers who sell websites as products believe the work is done. That’s when the real work of making your website effective should swing into high gear with competitor monitoring, search engine optimization, new content, social media integration, monthly patient newsletters, and design updates.
  • To stay competitive and get new patients from your practice website, you need a website service. You can distinguish between websites sold as products and websites sold as services by the set-up and monthly fees. Products typically have a high set-up fee and low monthly hosting fee, whereas a website service usually has a modest set-up fee and slightly higher hosting fee.

 

Question 3 – What is the response time on website updates?

  • Your website is never “done.”
  • You will need to add fresh content, update your hours, products or add a new team member to the staff page. It’s important to ask a potential website provider how long changes like these will take so there are no surprises.
  • Some companies will charge a fee for making these types of updates.
  • For instance, a freelance graphic designer may not enjoy updating existing websites when his or her focus is on designing a website, not maintaining the site. If you’re doing it yourself, make sure updating your site is easy.

Too many hoops to jump through on the back end and you’ll never want to update it. If you’re dealing with a website company, ask about the turnaround time. It can range from same day up to a week, so make sure you find a company that works on a timetable similar to yours. 

It’s very likely you’ll find that those who provide a website service, such as Imperial Program, respond much more quickly than those who sell a website product. 

If you want more new clients, getting to an intuitive and engaging website is not optional. Many clients are doing research online before selecting a  product or service, you need to have a solid Internet presence and your prospective clients need to be able to find your website quick and easy. 

Do your homework and ask the questions discussed here before selecting website provider in order to ensure a profitable and lasting partnership.

Mobile Friendly Web Solution

Mobile Friendly Web Solution

Google’s “MICE” Update

You see, back on February 26, 2015, Google quietly released the following (very important) blog post: Google’s Blog Post In its post, one of Google’s primary points stated that: “Starting April 21, we will be expanding our use of mobile-friendliness as a ranking signal.  This change will affect mobile search in all languages worldwide and will have a SIGNIFICANT IMPACT in our search results.

Consequently, users will find it easier to get relevant, high-quality search results that are optimized for their devices.” Translation: If your website was not “mobile-friendly” (as solely defined and determined by Google) as of April 21st of this year, your site’s current rankings are at risk, which can lead to reduced visitor traffic, fewer telephone calls and email opt-ins, as well as reduced sales and profits.

Perhaps you’ve noticed one, more or all of these risks with your website, but haven’t been able to put a finger on it as to why. There is a strong chance that one or more of those risks are now your reality if your website is not mobile-friendly. So, as I’m sure we can both agree, this is not only a big update; it is a BIG deal. In fact, Google is predicting it will be bigger than two of its biggest prior updates combined, as stated in this recent article.

It’s a common standard to develop websites that are easily viewed and navigated across all devices, and to most of the world, the terms mobile-friendly and responsive mean the same thing.

Mobile-Friendly

To put it simply, a mobile-friendly site is a bare minimum in terms of a mobile website. A mobile-friendly site is essentially a copy of your website, specifically designed to look and function the exact same way regardless of the device people use to browse your site. Nothing changes other than the scale of the site, and usability isn’t factored into the design. How a website looks and functions on a desktop will be the same on a mobile device, only that it's smaller.

Responsive

A responsive website does exactly what the named implies — the website is developed to respond to the screen size of the device its being accessed by. Usability is absolutely taken into account and that’s why a responsive website is going to look, and function, differently on a desktop, tablet, and cell phone. If accessed from a desktop, the full website is going to display. Whereas if it’s accessed on a tablet or cell phone, the layout and navigation will display differently. Some things may even be entirely omitted.

Google now takes mobility into account as a ranking factor. This means when someone searches google from a mobile device, websites that are optimized for mobile viewing will rank higher than websites that aren’t. And in today’s world, that probably means that a standard website will rank was so low it doesn’t really count as a rank. That website will be buried in the deep, dark depths of the search results. So that’s what we mean when we say a mobile-friendly site is a bare minimum for mobile design strategy. At the very least, you need a mobile-friendly site.

Is Your Website Mobile-Friendly?

Fortunately, it is fast and easy to find out if your website is mobile friendly in Google’s eyes: Simply test it on Google’s “Mobile-Friendly Web ” Test software, which generally takes 1 minute or less to conduct your test and get your results.  Check today and take action. If your site passed the test, congratulations! That means it is currently mobile-friendly according to Google and nothing further needs to be done to it (at this time) to comply with the Mice update.  However, to make sure your website remains in compliance and mobile-friendly, I recommend you test your website at least once a month. That way, you are always on top of it and, if necessary, can make adjustments to your website if a later test indicates it is no longer mobile-friendly.

Did Your Site Fail The Mobile-Friendly Test? If your site did not pass the test, what does that mean?  It means that your website is not, in Google’s sole discretion, mobile friendly. Accordingly, it is entirely possible you may start seeing or seen and continue to see negative consequences to your online metrics as stated earlier in this Guide. These negative consequences, from lost rankings and reduced website traffic to less revenue and bottom-line profits, could have started occurring as early as the April 21, 2015, and/or anytime thereafter.  Such consequences may be avoided and/or promptly eliminated with the proper solution.

 

We Have Mobile-Friendly Solution For You

If your site is currently not mobile-friendly, there’s no need to fear or worry as we have a mobile-friendly solution for you that not only passes Google’s mobile-friendly test, it instantly and immediately eliminates your risk.  If this sounds of interest to you, we would be more than happy to discuss this further with you at a mutually convenient time and promptly remedy this situation for you and your business.
