Most successful business owners have a website. This is because they can now generate more leads online than they can in person. That said, many business owners fall under the assumption that inbound marketing is an exact science. They outsource the production and maintenance of their web pages to marketing agencies and hope for the best.
Web design, like anything else, can be complicated to the hilt, but it doesn’t need to be. Here are some jQuery plugins that take the mystery out of effective web design and improve your page ranking in the process.
Responsive web design is more important today than it was twenty years ago, when mobile access to the internet was still in it’s infancy. Today, compatibility plays a huge role in the performance of your website, as with any luck, your page will be accessed across a wide range of devices. Additionally, the content that you have on your pages should be presented in a format that makes sense, one that promotes readability. jQuery’s Freetile app allows you to organize your content by importance in a tidy, responsive layout that promotes readability so that you can focus on what to include, not where to include it.
Visitors have neither the time, nor the patience, to wait for a page to load. If you have a number of pictures on your website, consider the Albumize app. This app allows you to organize your images into albums, thus reducing the time it will take for your page to load. Use this app to include cover images and click through albums. Your visitors will be afforded the same convenience.
Pages with live chats enjoy more page views on a consistent basis than those without them. This leads to a higher page ranking. The Firechat app is fully secure and affords users the option of opening their own rooms. The app also includes private messaging, chat invites and moderating tools. Chats are great brand-builders. Use this app to your advantage by creating chats that pertain to your brand.
