Purchasing a Mobile Home

It’s relatively easy to begin looking at traditional houses when you’re ready to buy. But what about purchasing a mobile home?

Long Distance Relationships

by @ WRIS Web Services

As you may be aware, WRIS moved to a new office space a few months ago. We stayed in the same city...our main office is still based out of Solon, OH.

What you may not be aware of, though, is that in addition to our Solon location, we have WRIS designers and developers based out of Boston, MA; Charlotte, NC; Washington, D.C.; Portland, OR; Orlando, FL; Charleston, SC; and Atlanta, GA.

So yeah, we’re all over the place.

And you know what else is all over the place? Our clients. Here’s a visual of some of the cities where we currently have clients:

 

 

As you can see, we’re crossing the Atlantic and it’s great!

We make sure that all of our clients, no matter where they are, receive the same first-class customer service that we pride ourselves on delivering. No, we aren’t jumping on a flight every other day (although we DO schedule visits as needed). We are taking advantage of virtual technology and it’s allowing us to conduct business as usual.

Obviously, because we are in the development business our work is online. Clients have instant access to their project in a development environment from anywhere they have internet access. In addition, we use an online project management tool that keeps track of all correspondence and project-related information in one easy-to-use portal. Clients can be updated and monitor progress 24/7.

We can also have real-time conversations at any time. Tools like Google Chat and Slack make it easy to communicate efficiently without worrying about the time zone.

When it’s not possible to be in the same physical location for a meeting, we take advantage of tools like Google Hangouts. It allows you to conference in on audio and/or video, so it feels like you’re right there. You can even do a screen share, letting all participants see what you’re seeing and watch what you’re doing.

Our own internal ticket system allows all of our clients to submit support requests 24/7, with alerts being sent to the entire support team. That’s always been in place. But now we’ve added another level with the use of Jira. This ticketing system allows for tracking of all of the intricate details and complex layers involved with web and software development. Team members can track progress, upload screenshots, and even comment back and forth all within the same ticket.

So wherever you are, if we provide a service you need, we can deliver.

When a Door Closes

by @ WRIS Web Services

We have a big announcement to make.

We're moving!

As you may or may not know, our current address includes the indicator of "Suite B1". And yes, "B" stands for basement. (But to be fair, this isn't the dark, spider-filled basement that nightmares are made of...as far as basements go, this one is pretty suite ;) We've enjoyed our time here, and we like the location. But it's time to go.

So you are probably wondering where we're going?

Someplace warm or on a beach?

Someplace right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the CLE?

Well, no. Like we said, we kind of like our location so we figured, why ruin a good thing?

Which is why we're moving .2 miles away. That's right, you'll barely have to adjust your GPS.

We are already starting to settle in, but once the move is complete (by the end of May) our new address will be 33549 Solon Rd., Solon, OH 44139. Same phone, same fax, same email. Just a new addy.

You know what they say, when a door closes a window opens. We might be closing the door on Suite B1, but for sure we'll open the windows at 33549 Solon Rd.

Because we can! The new space has windows!

We'll let you know when we're all settled in so you can come visit. And breathe the fresh air.

Freedom of the Press

WordPress, that is.

If you are online in any capacity, chances are you’ve at least heard of WordPress. It’s a development language that is used to create websites and blogs. It’s open source, and it’s generally affordable. But just like everything, it has its pros and cons.

Availability

WordPress is not hard to find. Just about any developer can work with it...even if it’s not their primary development language. You can even build a WordPress site on your own, and many do. But while building your own website may seem appealing, the resulting website may not be able to say the same. Creating a website can be overwhelming, so whether you decide to start the process yourself before seeking assistance or you opt to work with a developer from the beginning, those resources shouldn’t be hard to find. Which also comes in handy if you already have a WordPress site but need some help with it.

Open Source

What does this mean exactly? Well, when a development language is classified as open source, it basically means that enhancements and improvements can be created and contributed by developers everywhere. Someone may find themselves with a need, design a solution to it, and then decide to share it with the rest of the WordPress community. This saves someone else from having to come up with a solution to the same problem. They just search to see if something (specifically a plugin, see below) already exists, download it, install it, and wa-la! Problem solved. The confusion arises when there are several solutions for the same issue. Which one is best? Which will work for you? You might end up installing an enhancement only to find it doesn’t do what you thought it would. A developer with experience can help pinpoint the solution that will be best for you.

Plugins

What are these? Think of them as additions to your core website. Need a tool to help you create tables easily on your pages? Search for a plugin. Want to be able to display a real-time stock ticker? Search for a plugin. Want to integrate with an ecommerce partner? Plugin. Just about anything you can imagine can be achieved with a plugin. This saves time if you hit the mark with the first one you try, but can be a real pain if you have several misses along the way. (See above re: how a developer with experience can help with this.)

Affordability

If it fits your needs, WordPress is definitely more affordable than custom development. It can be a viable solution for smaller companies, or even bigger companies that don’t need a supersized, complex website. After all, it doesn’t need to be written from scratch. It has solutions to new problems available almost every day, often for little to no cost. And it’s readily available. Of course, not every problem can be solved with a plugin. Plus, because it is a language meant to be universally appealing, there are a lot of features you will never use but will still have to wade through because they are part of the package. It can be confusing. Which is why working with a developer can help you streamline the tools you need so that you end up with a site that functions the way you need it to function.

Turnaround

It makes sense that if you are not creating something from scratch (custom development), you are not only going to see cost-savings but time-savings as well. The time to create a WordPress site is generally weeks vs. months, so if time is of the essence, WordPress might be a good fit for you.

Is WordPress right for you? Let us help you figure that out and you’ll be on your way to a fresh site in no time.

That Time Your Website Redesign Didn't Go As Planned

by @ WRIS Web Services

If your website has been around for any length of time, you’ve probably gone through a redesign or at least a round of significant updates. Hopefully, each time has been a great success and you’ve never looked back. But for the rest of us there’s likely been at least one time when we thought...OMG, what have we done?

It might have been obvious right from the start. The moment the new site was launched it became crystal clear that not every change was for the better. Or, it might have taken a while for the reality to set in….maybe customer feedback wasn’t as positive as you’d hoped, or maybe the proof was in the analytics and your site’s performance started to tank.

Whatever the case, if you find yourself in that situation, you know you have to do something. But what? Ideally, whoever you partnered with on your redesign will work with you to help you feel comfortable with the state of your website. Maybe you can work together to come up with a solution.

But what if they can’t or won’t? Believe it or not, it is possible to salvage a redesign gone wrong if you have the right web development partner.

First step is to identify the problem. Is it just the look and feel of the site that isn’t working? Did it look good in development but now in the real world it’s just not a good fit for your company? If so, some simple graphic changes might do the trick. A color change here, a font change there, an additional image there, you might be surprised what these types of updates can do. Or, maybe the look is fine but somehow it wasn't built in a responsive format. Believe it or not, many sites can be retro-fitted as mobile-friendly while still retaining the integrity of the branding.

Maybe it’s not the look and feel, though. Maybe it’s the overall flow of the site that your customers are finding cumbersome. Did you move things around in a way your customers don’t appreciate? Has it become too difficult to navigate your site? Again, you might be able to fix things with just a few changes. Renaming navigation, combining unnecessary clicks, even just changing the position of a link might make all the difference. You just need to think about how your customers use the site and go from there. A web development partner can help you make sure your site’s usability meets your customers’ needs.

But maybe it’s not the front-end of the site at all. Maybe your customers love it but the content management system is not as easy and straightforward as promised. If you can’t maintain your site and make updates easily, you’ll just end up frustrated with a site that slowly becomes stagnant. Hopefully, your site is built on a platform that is conducive to back-end updates and additions and allows a good web developer the opportunity to give you what you need.

Whatever the reason for the dissatisfaction, if there’s a way to fix it without starting over, a good web development team will help you do that. So find one. In the end, you might decide that it doesn’t make sense to try to fix it because it’s just too broken. Does this mean you have to start from scratch? Yes and no.

Every website is different and functionality can range from the most basic to the most complex. If it makes sense, you can take advantage of a design template that can be modified to your branding. Leverage a development platform providing functionality that is customizable but not custom, and including a content management system that can be as robust or simplistic as you need. Yes, this means another redesign project, but not necessarily the same redesign budget.

So if your redesign did not go as planned, don’t throw in the towel but do take action. The sooner you admit defeat, find a web development partner, and get on the road to recovery, the sooner you’ll find you and your site on victory lane.

Back to Basics

by @ WRIS Web Services

Today, creating a successful website is a skill in its own right. Not only do you need a great graphic design, you also have to consider usability, speed, mobile-friendliness, optimization, analytics, functionality...the list goes on and on. But at its core, a website serves a purpose for an audience. The purpose may vary, as will the audience, but the ultimate goal remains the same. Provide that audience with a successful online experience. And sometimes it’s easy to overlook some of the most basic requirements needed to do that.

Talk to your Audience.

Who do you want to visit your site? Whoever that is, you need to know them. Understand why they are coming to your site and then provide them with that in the appropriate manner. Are they students or senior citizens? Are they tech-savvy or still using a flip-phone? Will they be coming to your site familiar with what you do or will you be their introduction? Don’t alienate them from the homepage with an award-winning design that’s not a winner for your audience. Instead, make sure they feel welcome and eager to delve deeper into your site. It’s important for you to like your site, of course, but more important for your customers to like it.

Be Honest.

Okay, so you’re probably not going to outright lie to your customers on purpose. But sometimes a marketing effort can go awry if your audience feels like you’re trying to pull the wool over their eyes. There’s a fine line between tooting your own horn and being blatantly arrogant. Promote your accomplishments and the things you do well, but don’t overstate your case. Display your products but either use your own images or find some that are realistic. And don’t make promises you can’t keep. Honesty really is the best policy.

Tell your Story.

Content Marketing is important. Keywords are important. Text optimized for search engines is important. But the most important purpose of the content of your site is to provide your site visitors with information. So while yes, you should do what you can to make sure your content is search engine friendly, you also want it to be interesting and readable.

Use your Analytics.

Assuming you’ve done all of the above and launched your site, you now have one important step left to do: Don’t sit back and relax. Analytics are meant to be used, so use them! If the numbers indicate people are leaving your site too quickly, or never making it past the homepage, pay attention! And don’t be overwhelmed, if you’d rather not deal with statistics like this (or just aren’t comfortable doing it), hire a professional who can decipher the information and help you take the right next-steps.

Keep Changing.

Websites are not a ‘one and done’ deal. You can’t launch a site and expect an overnight improvement in sales or calls. Your site will constantly be evolving and growing and changing and that’s normal. Just when you think you have it ‘perfect’, you’ll find something else you want to add or change or improve. But that’s what will help you keep your site interesting and effective, and your audience will appreciate it.
