Do you run an eCommerce site? If so, are you ready for Cyber Monday? It’s the biggest online shopping day of the year. What deals are you offering? How are you spreading the word? Email blasts? Updates to your site’s homepage? Custom landing page(s)?
We hear this all the time: “But my business is B2B. We don’t need to blog. We reach customers through word-of-mouth, tradeshows, and advertising in industry-specific publications.” That’s great and all, but your company should definitely still be blogging. Here are seven reasons why your company shouldn’t underestimate this powerful marketing tool.
When thinking about your website's effectiveness, keep one crucial mantra in mind: My website exists solely to solve my customers’ problems. Too many businesses focus on talking about themselves and their brand. Instead, they need to be solving their customers’ problems. Seriously. When people visit a website, they have a problem and need it solved. With that in mind, here are six ways your website is sending your customers elsewhere.
So you went through all that trouble a few years back to build a great website for your company. Now all you have to do is sit back and watch the business roll in, right? Wrong. Here are five signs your company website needs to be rebuilt.
Here's why we don't use Wordpress. When I started this company in 2008, I was asked to design websites because I have creative and graphic design ability. I didn't know how to build websites so I ventured toward Wordpress. And why not.. it's free! You can pick from tons of free themes and customize the site as you wish! All of the code was yours too... but as a graphic artist, it was very time consuming trying to figure out how to write it how Wordpress wanted me to write it... it was so difficult making my graphics come to life on a website using Wordpress's tools.. and the clients who wanted me, didn't want to pick from a theme.. they wanted something custom. So I had to figure out how to write code for myself.. with my own content management system.
Google's Mobile Responsive Algorithms steering the ship Google's recent algorithm change has got JAM Graphics working around the clock developing responsive websites for all of our loyal past clients. We've developed an affordable mobile responsive overhaul for all of our existing clients to get the up to speed with search ranking. So far we've 'redesigned' several client websites with many more to go!!! www.fantasiahaircare.com www.agadirint.com www.castlepix.com www.npdlogistics.com www.sharkfinshears.com www.dassian.com And many more coming soon! Google has already started to take notice and is giving us a boost for every mobile site developed upon launch!
So Google is finally ranking websites for 'mobile search' partially according to a website's usability on a mobile device. All this means is that when someone is lying in bed with their iphone or ipad searching the internet, the results they see when they search are going to contain mobile-ready websites first. JAM Graphics has been designing and developing fully custom mobile responsive websites since 2013 and now that Google has changed it's algorithms, we ONLY offer mobile responsive websites. which means by default, our new clients will get a mobile responsive website! Wordpress, Drupal and Joomla's mobile responsive themes outright SUCK. They claim to be mobile responsive but they're very difficult to work with, and if you're not careful, it will be a totally different experience on the desktop than on the iphone. Their mobile responsive templates are VERY clunky, use ugly drop down menus, and NEVER fit your text properly. Our mobile responsive websites are built custom, which means we build and look at every size screen, ensuring every page and every bit of information is readable and clean throughout. This is not an easy task either... customizing a simple navigation menu for mobile responsive takes 8-10 hours to do it right. That's a simple menu, home, about us, services, gallery, contact us, with the logo etc., to then collapse into a fancy little pop out, slide-out or dropdown menu on the mobile phone is complicated. 8-10 hours is what it takes to ensure it's working the way it should. We put this much care into every aspect of the website to ensure a thorough development through every inch of the website, on every device and every screen size. Just checkout our portfolio and look at the customization. www.sharkfinshears.com, www.acepforprofessionals.com, www.chocolatetext.com, or www.ontimeambulance.com... complex eCommerce programming with a mobile responsive framework.. through and through. Call us before you waste money with a firm that doesn't do it custom. You'll save a lot of money.
