What is Responsive Website Design?

Professional Online Image

Your website reflects your business image online.  That is why a well designed website is crucial for success.  You could do it yourself;  however, if you cannot invest 20 hours a week minimum into the Creation, Development, Design, Execution, Research, Updates, Search Engine Optimization, Analytics, Social Marketing, and Maintenance — a few items than need constant attention — on your website, your wasting your time and losing ground.

Do the research; do the math; look at your current website.  Could it be more effective for your business?  Could it be serviceable for mobile customers?  Is it just sitting there doing nothing?  Contact us and we can help you get noticed and found online.

Professional Website Design

The days of putting up a website and letting it do its thing without updates is a thing of the past and long gone.  DAVENPORT DESIGNS professional website design service will strengthen the online presence of your company or organization, or develop and grow your web start-up; either way, we can get you noticed and found online

The Future Is Mobile

As we stated on our Home Page: "Mobile devices make up 90% of internet access."  But what does that really mean to you, your website, and your business?

The days of viewing a static website designed for a larger screen and viewing it on a mobile device such as a phone or tablet and having the viewer have to shrink and expand the screen to read it is another thing that is long gone, as is, having separate mobile, tablet, and desktop versions of your site.  They are not only time consuming to maintain, but puts excess load on the server, slows down the load time for the viewer, not to mention the unneeded added expense to maintain them.

One of the most appealing aspects of responsive web design is that a responsive website can provide a great user-experience across many devices and screen sizes.

If your business is not taking advantage of responsive web design you are in danger of going out of business, or losing a big chunk of your income; however, there are three exceptions to the rule:

  1. You do not depend on your website to stay in business.
  2. You have no competitors.
  3. You are familiar with responsive design and have verified it is not the right fit for you by reviewing your website analytics, and you have an alternative mobile strategy.

If any of the three above apply to you, then you are ok, I guess, so carry on.  But if your company depends on its website enough that losing the business it brings to you would be a serious blow, getting a responsive website should be your #1 online marketing goal.

Having a mobile–friendly website is essential for any business wanting to be found and noticed online.

Benefits of a Web Presence

A well planned, researched, designed, executed, and actively maintained and updated website will be more productive than one that is not — using a free website design service and a canned template may be the cheapest and easy way to start a web presence, but in the long run you are loosing more money than you are saving, because they limit you in the tools you have access too, the ability to design outside the template, and don't play well with SEO, Social Media, or analytical stats — an expenditure that keeps you from being noticed and found online.

Website Value

Investing pennies and little time into an Ecommerce site will not reap the highest reward, nor will investing thousands of dollars and endless hours into a family site — the payoff is a byproduct of the value which is correlated with its purpose — "What do you want the website to achieve and how important is to you?"

Price is a mere whisper in the scheme of things when you look at what Apple, Amazon, and Disney pay a month, and what they get in return — "You Get Out Of It What You Put Into It!"

What does a website cost?

First question a website designer hears.  There is no definitive answer since websites are dynamic and vary depending on needs, industry, and purpose.  Major companies spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on their internet presence, but you don't have that luxury.

The cost of a website that DAVENPORT WEBSITE DESIGNS develops for you will vary slightly on features and design.  The simple, no-frills, no-strings design is $800 for a Wordpress or hand-coded website.  Our features and prices are comparable, if not exceeding, to others with what we offer:  What does a website cost?  The price is worth your commitment to your online web presence and its potential yield.

We consider ourselves neither expensive nor cheap.  ‘Expensive’ as in "a high price that is not based on intrinsic worth."  ‘Cheap’ being "poorly made or shoddy, not worth the price."  These descriptions do not apply to us.

We will not agree to create a website if we do not think the design or functions requested will work well to achieve your goals. Contact Us and we will choose the right play to get you noticed and found online .
