Mobiles, Tablets, Ipads, Iphones, Desktops, Laptops...

...In 2024 a web site needs to work on all of these

"Day by day, the number of devices...

...platforms, and browsers that need to work with your site grows. Responsive web design represents a fundamental shift in how we’ll build websites for the decade to come.” - Jeffrey Veen

Web sites these days are viewed on a wide variety of devices. For this reason it is no longer sufficient to a have a web site that works on a desktop computer - it must work equally well on Mobiles, Tablets, Ipads, Iphones, Desktops, Laptops..

Browsing on mobiles and tablets...

...now rivals browsing on desktops - there are 3 ways to respond to this fact:

1. Ignore mobiles and tablets - bad for business you'll be cutting off a significant part of your potential audience.

2. Have two sites - one for mobiles, one for desktops - extra work and problems with search engine rankings.

3. Have one 'responsive' site (like this one) that adapts itself to the device - this is known as Responsive Design

A good web site should...

1. Be attractive - with engaging graphics and a pleasing layout - not too cluttered, not too minimal.

2. Be Search engine-friendly - there's no point in having a great web site if no-one can find it.

3. Be easy to use - having intuitive navigation and a logically organised structure isn't rocket science (or even brain surgery) but many web sites fall down on this.

4. Work equally well on all platforms & Devices -Desktops, Laptops, Tablets, Smartphones PC's, Macs, Firefox, Chrome etc....they all need to be catered for.

5. 'Give the people what they want' - the most successful web sites offer something people need - information, a service, a product.

6. Be affordable - it's true you get what you pay for, but by the same token, value for money is essential.

7. Be hosted on fast reliable servers - a slow server that 'goes down' repeatedly is bad for business.

Content Management Systems 

Content Management Systems

Most web sites will need updating a some stage. There are 3 options here,

1. Do it yourself   pro - it's free!; con - you need the skill.

2. Get the designer to do it   pro - still quite cheap; con - there may be a delay.

If your site changes regularly it may be worth having a...

3. Content Management System   pros - you can update the site yourself from your computer; con - more expensive.

To update content you log in to your online, password protected, administration area - add or update text, links, images etc.

E-commerce (on-line shop)

These days online purchases account for a large proportion on the sales of many businesses. The days of people being afraid of the internet are long gone. Abcissa offers various ecommerce solutions to suit your requirements.

At the very simple (therefore inexpensive) end of the range - a Paypal button can be added to your existing web site to sell a single product.

At the other end of the spectrum would be a fully featured online shop with a shopping basket, customer registration etc - you are able to update product details from your own computer.

An ecommerce success story...

...Combined Charities Christmas Shops - designed and developed by Abcissa - has sold approximately half a million pounds worth of Charity Christmas products in its 8 years of operation.


Search Engine Optimisation(SEO)

Merely because you have a web site - it doesn't follow that visitors will automatically 'beat a path to your door.' Your site must be found. The way the site is constructed is integral to its 'search engine-friendliness.'

Your keywords (i.e the phrases that people type into Google to find you) must be placed at appropriate places in the code.

There are a number of trade-offs at play when it comes to web design, one of these is aesthetics versus search engine-friendliness. For example the copy you put on your site is likely to be different from the copy you would put on your printed materials - due to the dictates of SEO.

If your home page is just one big flashy animation - it may look 'cool' but it would fare poorly on search engines - no-one would find it....it's a trade off.
