The Truth About The Fold

It’s common talk in the website development industry to discuss “the fold” and the content that goes “above the fold.”  The fold is the bottom of the browser where content…

Why The Concept Of “KISS” Is So Important

“Keep It Simple Stupid” is probably a phrase you’ve heard before. It can relate to a number of different scenarios, but today we’re talking about your website. Hick’s Law describes the time it takes for a person to make a decision as a result of the possible choices they have. As you might expect, increasing the number of choices increases decision time.

Page Load Time vs. Page Abandonment

It’s no secret that page load time is very important for your website. If it takes too long to load visitors will go elsewhere. But did you know how little time you actually have to grab that user?

Why do we care about UX? Because every $1 invested in UX yields a $2 to $100 return

User Experience (UX) is one of those things people think they can skip in a web design project. But when every $1 invested in UX yields a $2 to $100 return, you’d be crazy to skip it! If you have a website or are starting a new web project soon, this is a must read.

Has Your Web Guy Disappeared?

I’ve lost count the number of times someone has said to me “my web guy disappeared” and fortunately less often, yet just as inconvenient, “my web guy has passed away”. When this happens you generally go through a few stages.

First is denial (if they didn’t pass away). You hope that maybe they’re on vacation, or something happened where they can’t answer their phone, email, or door if you went to their office (or house).

It seems that Main Street businesses can’t catch a break. Personally I have been involved with small to medium sized businesses for the greater part of my career.
