Websites For Small Businesses - How Have They Changed?

With the advent of the internet around twenty years ago, most people can remember the first websites that were floating around. Blocky, basic designs with slow loading pages and not much to offer in the way of innovation.

However, as times have changed, so have the requirements for a good website for any small business. Thankfully, web designers have kept up with the times.

Multiple Device Interfaces

It is only in the last decade or so that other devices have been able to access the internet with the same speed and display capabilities as a PC. Previously, any device that accessed a web page other than a WAP version would simply display the page as if it were being accessed from a PC, meaning endless scrolling across and trying to work Java enabled pages without the program installed.

Now, most businesses with a website take the common step of allowing mobile device optimisation. Click the 'mobile device view' button (if the page hasn't already detected the device and factored it in!) and a mobile or tablet friendly version is ready to go.

Social Media Integration

Any company with a website will most certainly have some sort of social media presence; whether it be Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin or Instagram, any startup or small business in Lloydminster or nearby will understand the importance of integrating both their website and social media presences to create a professional image.
