While Web Design is the term used to describe the process of creating websites, it is actually made up of many different elements and skills.
It is this knowledge and expertise that makes the difference between professionally designed websites, and DIY sites, created using universal templates.
Whilst home-produced websites will work to a certain degree, they are certainly not recommended for businesses. A business website needs to be not only eye-catching, but also super efficient, offering the user fast uploads and easy links.
Google estimates that you could lose around 61% of potential customers if your mobile site is too hard to navigate.

In the constant battle for new customers and better SEO rankings, Responsive Web Design (RWD) is a must. A key element in the move towards RWD has been the rapid increase in mobile device use. With more searches being conducted on mobile devices than ever before, your website must be mobile-friendly.
67% of users are more likely to buy from a mobile-friendly website
Traditional web design does not provide the speed or usability required for viewing on a mobile phone or tablet. This alone will affect your sales, as less potential customers will use your website. Even if they visit the site, the perceived difficulty in navigating it will result in less conversions.
Websites that have not been designed using Responsive Web Design will experience more difficulty in boosting their search engine ranking. In July 2013, Google announced that it would penalize websites that were not optimized for mobile search. In November 2014, it added a ranking boost for sites using RWD. In Google’s own words: RWD “helps Googles algorithms accurately assign indexing properties to the page rather than needing to signal the existence of corresponding desktop/mobile pages”.
Websites begin with an idea, or a theme. Suncoast Web Design will meet with you, the client, to create a plan of action. We will ask questions, in order to better understand your business and your goal.
It might be that you already have a brand, in which case your website will follow that look and feel. Or you might be re-branding, or launching a new business. In this scenario, we can help you develop your new brand.
With many years’ experience in the industry, we know what works, and what doesn’t. Let our experts guide you towards the best possible solution.
It is quite likely that, even if you don’t know what an infographic is, you have seen one.
Infographics are now a very popular and effective method of content marketing, that displays information in an easy to understand format.
Visually engaging, an infographic is the modern equivalent of a graph. They have, in fact, been around since the 17th century!
The biggest benefit of using an infographic is that this will usually result in many more Likes, Shares, and Comments than an ordinary article. This is largely because we as humans, process visual content faster than written.
Research shows that presenters who use visual aids are 43% more effective at delivering their message. This is because between 50-80% of our brain is geared towards visual processing.
There is a skill to creating a successful infographic, both in terms of design and content. This service is now available at Suncoast Web Solutions.
