Is A Website Right For You?

Written by L. Streete
On many occassions we come across clients who want to find out more about setting up a website, both for individuals and company's. With both groups there is normally one unifying question weighing on their minds...

Is setting up a website right for me?

There are many reasons why this question is raised;
  • Is the investment right for my situation or company?
  • Will I see a return on my investment (ROI)?
  • Will setting up a website for my business actually help or hinder me?
  • Im not sure that i can justify the initial investment?
  • May be i should wait another 6 - 12 months and see what happens in my industry.
  • My competitors dont have a website so i dont think i need one.
  • the list can go on for almost ever...

So to help answer some of these concerns and questions read on through this article.

Blog commenting

Written by L. Streete

We have now added a commenting component to our blog, so you can now leave comments and thoughts on the topics we post in this section.

We hope you enjoy this new feature and interact with us.

There's a new article on the BBC website confirming the rise in internet shopping by consumers.

They state:

"UK shoppers spent 17 pence in every pound online in the first half of the year, a report has said."

"The total internet spend was £26.5bn, up 38% on the same period last year, according to e-commerce group IMRG and consultancy Capgemini."

So it goes to show having an ecommerce website that is setup correctly and offering the usual features most internet shoppers have become accustom to, might just help you or your company out by maintaining and improving on sales, whilst budgets and cash flow are tight for consumers.

If you would like to enquire about having your very own eCommerce website (Online shop) get in contact today.

Google releases new web browser, Google Chrome

Written by L. Streete

Google has recently released a new open source web browser in Beta format (testing), the new browser named "Chrome" offers users a fast web browsing experience and comes equipped with some nice tools to help designer and developers during website testing. These include JavaScript, CSS and view Source consoles that allow you to check your webpage coding. Tabbed navigation and a whole host of other features i'm yet to try out for myself.

Is your website Browser Compatible?

Written by L. Streete

As a tool we regularly use I thought it would be a good idea to post a link to this very useful website for browser compatibility testing. If you own a website or you’re in the process of having a new website designed and developed, you can check to see whether or not it is compatible in the browsers you expect it to operate on the most.

Beating the credit crunch online...

Written by L. Streete

With more talk of markets worsening, and the UK government talking about pumping up to £500 billion into the economy to bail out banks and other related institutions times seem pretty dier. What will come next or better yet what's going to happen if after all these bailouts, things continue to go downwards?!?

Im not sure about you but where ever theres bad news theres always some good and where ever there seems to be no hope theres opportunity. Its on this note I want to focus your thoughts to making the most out of your website online in these financially worrying times.

New guidelines have been released by the W3C to help websites become more accessible for older and disabled people.

Following these guidelines will help make your website content more accessible for users in general.

The guidelines look at text, images, Audio and Video on the websites.

Online Shopping for the visually impaired and Blind

Written by L. Streete

Is your website setup and ready to offer visually impaired and disabled users the ability to shop online on your website?

Its a good question to ask, because im sure for at least 50% of you who currently trade online, you do not offer much in the way of supporting accessiblity on your websites and limit your own ability to tap into this market and open up your customer base.

Again ecommerce bucks the trend of doom and gloom of the resession. If theres one thing we always advise clients at LAS Design is that if you have a company that you can either sell your products online or increase enquiries or leads through having a professional website, then really you shoud have been online yesterday or updated your website with all the features you will need to get the most out of your website online! Yesterday the BBC released another article confirming what we already see with our clients who trade online. The figures are still good and are on the up at Christmas 2008.
