As web designers, your focus can't remain strictly on aesthetics. Functionality must be the framework of whatever you produce. If you can't get your audience to do what you intended them to do, you need to go back to the drawing board. By the way, you should expect to go back to the drawing board, but have a plan! In order to understand how to improve your site layout and your design, you'll need data, and that's where heat maps and other user activity tracking tools can come in handy.

We'll give it to you straight- the success of a website development strategy meeting depends mostly on YOU. How you respond to and work alongside both internal and external teams will greatly affect the tone, efficiency, productivity, and overall results that come from the meeting.

Choosing the right web developer for your web project can be a daunting process. I am confident that often time the reason why companies tolerate a sub-par website is because they simply don’t know where to go to get the right developer.
When shopping for services like web development, you might find it nearly impossible to compare providers. You'll have one provider that will build a website at $700, another at $7,000, and yet another at $17,000.

Sure your website may have a lot of traffic coming from patients attempting to access their online portal or to find their provider's contact information, but that's not the kind of traffic that brings in new business. Providing a good user experience and online presence that works for current patients is a basic necessity. But good user experience and online presence that also captures the interest and business of potential patients can be revolutionary!
If you build a website and never put it on the internet, is it really a website?
This is not a deep philosophical question. It has a simple answer.
A development site is like an unsent email in your draft folder or all those baby pictures of your teenager on your phone that you keep meaning to back up to your computer or maybe even print and hang on the wall.
So then why are there so many websites living in the purgatory of a development environment instead of on the world wide web?
This is not a rhetorical question. It also has a simple, though not as brief, answer.
Web marketing services are more essential than ever for businesses right now. With the markets crashing and businesses closing their physical doors left and right, having an online presence is the only thing that will keep businesses generating revenue.

So, what happens now that brick-and-mortar businesses have to close their doors? How do they keep employees employed and continue to see cash flow?
