Can your customers see your website?

The answer will be “Yes they can”. But how well can they see it? Figures from the Office for National Statistics* tell us that more and more of us are looking at websites on our Smartphones in which case most websites become more difficult to see without enlarging pages and reading them in segments.

Such is the problem, that we have recently started designing most of our websites using “Responsive Technology”, “Responsive” meaning that websites are visible and readable on all platforms: Desktops, Laptops, IPADs, Android Tablets, IPhones and all other smartphones.

You would like us to re-desgn your website? – PROBABLY NOT!

You will be pleased to know that we have come up with an alternative. We can provide a smaller “Mobile Friendly” version of your site which sits next to your existing site which automatically displays should your site be accessed by a mobile or smartphone.

With kind permission of one of my clients we are able to provide an example. If you visit http://www.plumbing-heating.net on your desktop/laptop, the normail/existing site will appear. If you visit it using your IPHONE or Smartphone, the “Mobile Friendly” version will display.

How much will it cost me?

If you have a mobile site as in the example with a Home page outlining your services together with all your contact information and an Enquiry Form page, we will charge £150 + VAT. There are no additional hosting fees or other costs – it is a “one-off” charge.

If you would like something a little more extensive with more pages, we will need to talk.

If you would like to know more, you can email me at paul@oakwebdesign.com or call me on 01623 656264

Oh, and by the way, if you did want us to re-design your site, we’re up for that too.

or a mobile phone network. More than three quarters of adults (83%) aged under 45 used the
Internet ‘on the go’, with the youngest group, those aged 16 to 24, reporting the highest use (89%).
This was closely followed by those aged 25 to 34 (85%). (Office of National Staistics)
