  • Web Design – Optimising for Mobile is Now a Must! | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    website which stated By 2015 more people in the US will use mobile devices to access the internet than PCs or other fixed line devices according to the International Data Corporation IDC The IDC predicts that as smartphones begin to outsell more basic phones and as media tablet sales explode the number of mobile internet users will grow by a compound annual growth rate of 16 6 between 2010 and 2015 The company also forecasts that the number of people accessing the internet on PCs in the US will first stagnate and then slowly decline Western Europe and Japan will not be far behind the US in following this trend To me this seems like as accurate a prediction as you could get and the figures may even exceed that forecast come the time One thing is clear though the rapid growth of mobiles is no fad or flash in the pan craze and for the foreseeable future and perhaps even longer businesses should be optimising their websites for mobile if they want to remain competitive Web design itself has ably kept pace with the evolution of the internet and changing consumer demands and designing for mobiles is yet another stage in that evolution but a stage that looks like it s going to be with us for some time to come Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January

  • If You Want to Reach Consumers – Go Social! | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    chit chat to users telling friends about something they ve seen and recommending that they take a look and the power of a recommendation should never be underestimated By linking their website to social media interacting with other users and being inventive with the content businesses could benefit from a significant increase in exposure and a higher awareness of their products or services rather than relying on potential customers finding them via search engines alone Business and social media are now firmly linked take a look at any number of websites and more often than not there s a social media button to found on their pages Even with television adverts there are invitations to follow us on Facebook Twitter etc and it seems if your website has no connection to social media then you re all but invisible to a potentially large market It s fairly safe to say that marketing a website through social media is no longer a choice but a necessity in order to keep up with the competition and those businesses not currently doing so are putting themselves at a disadvantage and missing out on what has become one of the most effective marketing channels in recent years Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014

  • Amazon to Test a New-Look Website | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    good thing Aside from navigation issues it was definitely time for a change of look and from a screenshot I ve seen the new look is quite pleasing and has a more spacey feel but perhaps the most noticeable difference is the absence of the old blue side menu which has been replaced by a collapsible one located across the top of the page There are also fewer products on display which again frees up screen space and gives the site a much cleaner and streamlined look and much less daunting than the current site Overall the new look should go down well with visitors and easier navigation should make it even more popular than ever The site is also designed for shoppers using tablets as opposed to PCs and laptops There may be some Amazon fans that would prefer the site to remain as it is and has been for years but time moves on and so too should websites and as Amazon s current site now looks a little dated I suspect the majority of users will welcome the change Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014 Click to Contact Us today or call on 01604 790007 during office hours What s wrong with your website Get your

    that it will do just that if it ever comes to market Amazon already has the Kindle of course which is now outstripping sales of print books so perhaps the rumoured jump into the tablet market is inevitable A look around the web will yield various opinions as to whether or not the Amazon device will make any significant dent in Apple s control of the tablet market which is currently reckoned to be around 50 percent Others are speculating that should Amazon come up with their own version there will be courtroom battles ahead as Apple may attempt to sue for alleged patent violations as they have reportedly done to other makers of Android smart phone and tablets from which they now charge a fee for every item sold Whether or not Amazon does have something up its sleeve one thing is clear The debate and speculation amongst potential users and the concern that Apple must be experiencing at the moment is priceless PR Except for the Kindle Amazon aren t really known for pushing their own branded products and yet with just a rumour of something to come they ve got the computer world wondering what s going to happen next Time will tell of course but for the moment I m sure Amazon s potential competitors will remain a little bit twitchy Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015

    have a basic payment gateway up and running in a very short space of time although PayPal now also have systems that lets online businesses accept payment via credit and debit cards as well As most shoppers prefer to pay using a credit or debit card websites that don t cater for these potential buyers could and probably already are losing a significant amount of business Of course for some businesses securing other payment options such as Visa and Mastercard isn t always easy or straightforward because of the need to obtain merchant accounts something that isn t always as quick straightforward or hassle free as you d expect However there are growing numbers of payment gateway providers offering payment processing services who are now making it much easier than it once was to take online payments There are obviously commission charges to consider before you choose and they vary from company to company but a good look around for the best deals should be very worthwhile Aside from the limitations for online buyers and the effect it could have on sales many visitors are likely to view a single payment option or indeed the inability to accept any online payment as being rather amateur an opinion that in most cases isn t deserved but unfortunately practically unavoidable when encountered Nevertheless website owners currently offering only one method of payment would do well to rectify the situation as early as possible Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015

  • Web Design – Why Captchas? | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    blogger s life using a Captchas will ensure that only humans can enter what are hopefully genuine comments onto a blog and all without the need for them to sign up before doing so Dictionary attacks on password systems is another area where Captchas are useful Computerised systems will make numerous attempts to crack a password and Captchas go some way to preventing this by requesting the programme to enter the characters shown in the box after a pre defined number of failed logins Other occasions where the use of a Captcha is advisable is when signing up for something free such as email accounts newsletters competitions etc in fact anything that requires a sign up procedure on a website would probably benefit from a Captcha at least for the foreseeable future I say the foreseeable future because as computer programmes become ever more sophisticated it s not beyond the realms of possibility that at some point a way will be found that enables a programme to read Captcha characters or bypass the system altogether and if you think that sounds impossible take a look at the astonishing advances in computer technology over the last ten or even five years and think again Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 May 2014 April 2014 March 2014 February 2014

    which may drive a significant number of visitors away if they have to click again to get where they want to be A splash page often gives visitors the choice of which version of the site to enter as well For example I know of a site that used to offer the entry options conventional site and unconventional site the titles of which are self explanatory This particular site s splash page was very very quick and didn t deter me from revisiting but that s not always the case with other sites which can vary enormously Splash pages are perhaps a good way of showcasing a web designer s skills especially if they are interesting as well as containing useful information but once seen is usually enough for any visitor and their return to the site could be out of the question if there is no skip button in place There could also be an issue with search engines as well because they won t have a lot to optimise if the splash page contains only Flash animation something that could also have a knock on effect with access to other pages of the site All in all splash pages aren t the worst thing in web design but they do require some thought as to how they are presented and how they could affect visitor numbers and consequently your business Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June

  • How Does Your Website Copy Shape Up? | web design northampton - in.house.media news blog
    will simply put visitors off regardless of how good the web design of the site itself Ideally blocks of website copy should be set as justified left and ragged right which simply means that the left side of the block should be straight and the right side uneven just like the copy on this page This is usually the most comfortable layout for online readers as there is a defined start to each line of text and ending where they would naturally finish without being broken up by the multiple hyphen breaks and oversized spaces found in justified text If you don t already know justified text is when both the left and right sides of the copy columns are straight just as they are in newspapers and many books and whilst this works for those types of publications it s not something that s appreciated or wanted by the majority of website visitors There are websites out there containing justified text and apart from the reasons I ve mentioned to me they re also quite uneasy on the eye Justified text on your website may look neat tidy and uniform but visitors might have a hard time reading it and even leave your site because of it Until next time No Comments Read More Tweet Search for Recent Posts Our Predictions for the Biggest Web Design Trends in 2016 What Are Landing Pages and When Should You Use Them Should All Websites Be Designed Primarily for Mobile 8 Hottest New Design Trends for Your Website Is Your Website Costing You Money Archives December 2015 November 2015 October 2015 September 2015 August 2015 July 2015 June 2015 May 2015 April 2015 March 2015 February 2015 January 2015 December 2014 November 2014 October 2014 September 2014 August 2014 May 2014 April
