Mobile Web Design

Mobile Web Design

More and more people are using their cell phones instead of computers and laptops these days. You are probably doing it yourself, I know I am! There are days now where I don’t even use a computer at all and do what I need to do on my phone, it is faster and easier to do a Google search on my phone for sure. So with all these people now using their phones, with smaller screens, it is a very good idea to make sure that your website is fully mobile ready. Your full website might load in a half second over your super fast home internet on your computer but on a phone on a cellular connection it can take some time, and in today’s web world people don’t have time and will not wait for a heavy site to load on their phone. Every cell phone, android, iOS, etc’s browser has what is called a User Agent built in that tells a website that it is viewing from a mobile device with a smaller screen, we can use that as a switch to show a mobile style on your site. A mobile style is lighter, it loads faster, it is less cluttered and easier to read, and it also fits side to side on the phone screen, this is important to mobile browsers.  Often times the menu system will be configured differently so it is easier to use with a touchscreen rather then a mouse, lastly we include a “switch to full site” link in the footer for people who prefer to use the full site on their phone....
Forum Design

Forum Design

Online Forums are still very popular even after the advent of FACEBOOK. A forum is a online community usually dedicated to one niche or topic where like minded individuals get together and exchange ideas. Online forums have also been deployed as a way to provide customer service for large companies. I am an admitted forum addict! After all, that is where I got my start in building websites. vBulletin is the best forum software on the web hands down, there is a good chance that if you post on a popular forum it is powered by vBulletin. This is what I use to build online communities. I am a vBulletin guru of sorts, it’s my thing, and I love it. If you need a forum built, I am the man for the...
Web Usability

Web Usability

Website Usability is something that is often overlooked by most website firms. This is can be a very valuable tool for any website, all the websites we build are user friendly for both you and your audience out of the box. As with anything though, when someone is building your website they know where everything is, they are exchanging emails and calls with you and explaining where everything is, most of the time upon launch your audience will know where everything is without explanation. Sometimes though, that is not the case, this is where a web usability analysis and possibly testing comes into the equation. This is especially useful for those that already have a website that they like but it is just not performing in terms of end user participation. It could be an e-commerce store that has a large amount of abandoned carts, or any website with a large bounce rate. These things can be fixed and ChaseWeb can help you with that. If you think your website isn’t performing the way it should, contact us today and let us help...
