Is your website Mobile friendly?

mobile-friendly-websites

If you open up your website on a mobile phone and you need to pinch, stretch and scroll or you need a magnifying glass to read the text – your website is not mobile friendly and needs updating so that it is.

If you have got a website that is more than a couple of years old it is likely that it is not mobile friendly. Now is a great time to update your website and make sure it can be viewed on mobile devices, tablets and the desktop.

While you can choose to update the look of your website at the same time, alternatively you can keep a similar look and feel using your existing logo, images and content. This is also a great time to update your content and read through your pages of your website and make sure your content still reflects your current business activities.

Depending on your business and the size of your website a responsive website is an ideal solution. It can be viewed at full size on a desktop and then when scaled down to all the different screen sizes the content stretches, scales and wraps around to fit the smaller devices.

Email Signatures

Have you set up an email signature for your business?

An email signature with your web address looks professional and is easy to set up.  Email Signatures are a great way to reinforce your branding and provides instant contact  information for the reader. If you are not sure how to set up an email signature use the “Help” function in your Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Express or whatever you are using.

You can change the size and color of the font, add your logo and finally your web address. Make sure you test it and that the link works!

3dotsWith the amount of junk mail and scams out there if you are serious about creating a professional image you will go to the effort of making up an email signature that include all the details of your business and your web address. I personally find it hard to take an email seriously if there is no ownership. If someone is asking me for a quote or a website question I am much more likely to take the enquiry seriously if I know that I am dealing with a real person from a real business.

If you have multiple interests to do with your business you can make up multiple email signatures to suit each one. Pick one as the default and use it for your most common enquiries and then the other ones you can select and use them when necessary.

If you want to add your facebook, twitter, linkedin, google+ or pinterest links this is a great place to do it. In my signature I have stuck with text links but you could easily add your favorite social icons/images and link them to your accounts.

If you would like to have more than one email signature set up – for example one for your friends, one for your business this is possible too.

Set up multiple email signatures and whoever you send the most emails too make this the default. When you want to change the email signature just right click and select the one you want to use.

Not only can you set up the email signature with your business details but you can also promote any specials or other information your client may be interested in. Once the special or promotion has finished just remove/delete it from your email signature.

As an example here’s my email signature:

New Look Solutions Indata Website

The  new look website for Solutions Indata is now up. It was certainly time for a fresh look and it does look very different to the previous versions of the website.

It is very easy for your website to take a back seat while you move forward with other areas of the business move full steam ahead.

It  is sort of like the carpenter who has tea towels hanging on cupboards instead of doors, the kitchen cabinet maker that needs a new kitchen, Solutions Indata for a long time needed  a website that is up to date  with current trends. The main feature being that the website can be viewed on a mobile device with ease and looks great on both desktop  computer and any mobile device.

The first Solutions Indata website was made up in 2001 and throughout the years there have been about 3 major changes along the way. If you would like to have a look at previous versions of any website you can go to the “Wayback Machine” and have a look.

While the website is now up LIVE  it is still a work in progress and more pictures and content will be added over time.

If your website has been around long enough to appear in the Wayback Machine it may be time to create a new look website too!
