The question 'Who is on the internet?' a few years ago was pretty simple to answer; it was the youth, tech freaks in the industry and maybe the odd cool parent trying to spy on their child.
But now with new online innovations such as Facebook, Pinterest, Kindle, and above all Mobile devices such as Smart Phones and Tablets, the internet has become more accessible and useful to people of all ages.
Any web design company that does not offer website marketing as the primary aim of website development has clearly missed the point.
The modern company website has to facilitate all marketing activities: lead generation, targeted email campaigns, content marketing, news bookmarking, eCommerce sales & catalogues, CRM, social media, customer engagement and a host of other functions...

With a growing source of traffic from mobile devices such as Smart Phones and Tablets, you need a revamp of your website design.
The digital revolution has profound implications for the way we do business now and in the future.

Google is also about to announce a massive change to its ranking results. Soon a 'mobile first index' will be used for website rankings.
Google will therefore be indexing the mobile versions of website pages and not the desktop web page versions as its primary index.
But in any competitive industry, starting online marketing can be a very daunting task.
Here's how you do it.
I remember using a computer as a child, I remember when the internet was for the privileged and Windows 98 was in its prime.
Connecting your computer to the modem entailed having to disconnect from your phone line after which you were forced to sit through that awful fax modem jingle for however long it would take.
Once connected the test of patience began with page loading times giving you roughly enough time to take a slow walk to the kitchen, pop the kettle on, make tea and consider your various lunch options.
