It’s still surprises us, here at Skittish, how many businesses are prepared to invest in a website without sitting down and setting some goals for what they want that website to do. More often than not, it’s not that they want a website but more that they know they need one to order to compete with their competition. What businesses need to consider is how their website fits in to their overall marketing strategy.
I was recently asked at a networking event, how to find a good web designer. "Should I just Google Web designers in my area, or should I ask for a personal recommendation?" I'd say always go by recommendation like you would any tradesman, but there are a few other ways to find a good web designer that you can work with.
At Skittish, we encourage clients to opt for a responsive website. But what do we mean by this? Well, in layman’s terms it's a site with a fluid layout which responds and changes depending on the width of the screen and the device that’s displaying it. So the width of the content fits the width of the device and eliminates the need to continually zoom in when using small screens.
