The Ideal Website Is Responsive Ethan Marcotte coined the term late 2008, and in 2011 published the book titled "Responsive Web Design."

The Ideal Website Converts Visitors into Leads and Customers At the end of the day, the only reason for having your website is to increase sales and grow your business.

The ideal website - part 1 (of 7)

Last week a client asked me to define the ideal website, based upon nearly 22 years in the web development and SEO business. I don’t always include all of these components in a proposal or even include them in our own sites. However, if I had to describe a site that would be perfect, where…

How Much Should a WordPress Website Cost?

If WordPress is free, shouldn’t my WordPress website be free? I get that question all the time. I look at WordPress as a free plot of land... one of those government 50 year leases. What you build on your lot will determine the value of the finished property. The size, calibre of materials and finishes, the…

Do I Have to Blog and be Active in Social Media?

Isn't Attractive Web Design Enough? I'm often asked if regular blogging and social media are really necessary, if the web designer did a nice job. If you live in a small community like Squamish, where there may be no more than 1 or 2 competitors, you’re satisfied with the number of customers you have, and…
