How to Increase Conversions Through Quality Landing Page Design

by Andrea Stang

Let’s follow the path of a typical consumer. You see an ad for a product on Facebook. It catches your interest, so you click. The transition is pretty smooth and now you see a landing page design that gradually gives you more and more information about the benefits of this product.

Within sixty seconds of hitting that page, you should have access to and be able to consume all the information you need to make a decision.

Responsive Web Design Goes Beyond Mobile

by Ford Saeks

Gone are the days when we front end developers can create one site, one set of rules, and be done. When we talk about the definition of a responsive site – and why you need it – we’re not just talking about serving your mobile device.
