What does your website look like on an iPhone? Do you have to use the pincer gesture with your fingers to zoom in to read the text? How about on an iPad? - does your website still have a flash movie that is invisible? For the last few years we have been building most websites using Responsive technology. This means your website responds to the device people are viewing it on. Try looking at the home page of www.easykey.net on your Laptop then on a Smartphone and then landscape view on an iPad - try rotating it into the portrait orientation and watch how it responds. Some estimates suggest that up to 60% of websites will be viewed on hand held mobile smartphones and tablets by the end of the Summer.
Freshen Up Your Images
You've heard the saying that a picture paints a thousand words. Did you know that most people who stumble upon the home page of your website will take around 8 seconds to decide whether they will explore any further? How many words can you read in 8 seconds? Does your homepage have an arresting image? Consider using faces - especially expressing an emotion like fun, boredom, frustration, peace. We are programmed to respond to facial expressions. Try using a face that looks sideways at what you want your visitor to look at e.g. a Call To Action button. When did you last change images on the homepage of your website?
