What is Web Development?

Your company’s website is your shop window to the world. Consumers of your company’s products and services are more internet savvy than ever before. Your customers and prospects now carry out almost 100% of their research ONLINE. If you get your web design wrong in terms of its look, feel and functionality you will drive prospects and customers away. It’s that simple.

Why would anyone take the risk of investing in a cheap website or free web design software?

The cost savings sound great on the face of it – especially in a harsh economic environment, but we’ve given fifteen reasons to use a professional web design company rather than buy cheap or free web software (or use your brother in law).

Make it easy for your visitors to add you to their address book with a vCard

Sep 6, 2013 1:59:00 PM / by Matthew Rayner posted in vCard, web design, web design Lincolnshire, web development, website

A vCard is a simple file format that stores an electronic version of your business card. You can store all of your personal contact details on it such as your name, email address, phone numbers, business address, the name of your secretary, a photograph of yourself, your business name and virtually any other piece of information you can think of about yourself and your business. The vCard format has been around since 1995, which in internet terms is ancient. That’s 9 years before Facebook was even a glimmer in Mark Zuckerberg’s eye! It was created by a team of engineers called the Versit Consortium. This is where the v in vCard comes from, it stands for Versit. The vCard was invented back in a time when most of the standards used today were still in their infancy. The vCard uses a simple text format. This makes the file format easy to understand on all platforms and is decipherable by humans and computers alike. You could open up a vCard file in your favourite text editor and be able to understand what is stored in it but it is normally used by importing the data into your email / contacts management program. All email and contact management clients support the vCard format. The vCard format has also evolved with time and changing data format preferences. There are also several complimentary technologies called jCard, hCard and xCard. These package up the same vCard standard but just store the data in a different format (for example xCard uses XML markup). The vCard is most commonly passed around as an attachment to an email but they can also be included as part of website content management systems. DBS have helped many of our clients by building “our people” style content management systems which support downloading these vCards such as in the screenshot below. image If you’re interested in learning more about using vCards for your business or you would like to get them integrated into your website then contact DBS today.

Is your website mobile friendly?

blogpost-responsive_web_design Unless your site is cutting edge then chances are the answer is no. Over the last year browsing the internet on-the-go has exploded in popularity. More and more people are using their smartphones such as Androids and iPhones, or tablets like the iPad, to browse websites. It’s predicted that 2014 will be the tipping point when more people will be browsing the web on their handheld devices than on traditional desktop computers. Despite this massive increase in popularity, most of the web has not yet caught up with the mobile revolution. This means that when you visit a website on a handheld device you see the entire website. A design that would normally have a full sized desktop monitor to display itself in is crammed into a small screen. If you have found yourself having to pinch and zoom to be able to see the words, click buttons and fill out forms on the website then you will know how frustrating and slow this can be. Is there a better way? Yes! Instead of showing the full desktop design your website should be tailored to fit on a small screen device. Text should be larger, buttons should have lots of space around them so you can press them with your fingers and navigation menus should be tucked away until you need them. There are currently two main types of mobile website. The first technique that came out was to set up two sites. The main website and a separate website specifically designed for mobile visitors. This was effective but meant that web site owners had to remember to update both sites whenever they made changes. Out of date and reduced content is frustrating to mobile visitors. As mobile technology moved on a better technique was developed which is known as responsive design. Responsive design takes a single website and enhances it with technology that can detect the size of the screen a visitor is using when they look at your website. If they visit on a desktop computer with a large monitor then the full site is displayed. If they visit on a small handheld device then the website detects this and changes its layout to fit snuggly into the screen space available, adjusting font sizes and padding along the way. The good news is that your website can most likely be enhanced to support a mobile friendly, responsive design. DBS Internet Marketing are experts at converting websites to use responsive design techniques. Our website has more to read and an introductory video which will help you understand mobile friendly websites in more detail.
