Before & After:
A big thanks to Components Electronics Systems LLC, Web-Op wishes your company continued success.
First off, I would like to say that I think it is a great idea to learn how to code. It will benefit you in a lot of ways and help you become a better problem solver. However, your first website probably shouldn’t be a website for your company. The website for your company should have one sole purpose: make you money.
The problem with first time web developers/designers is that they learn a lot of cool little tricks and they try to use all of them on their website. They learn how to make a button flash, add a cool gradient, and make rotating slides that look amazing – at least in their eyes.
Everyone starting out does these type of things. I remember when I first learned a few tricks. I thought they were the coolest things ever. The problem was that none of those little tricks help any website make more money.
An experienced design team approaches a new design with conversions in mind. An experienced designer has all the same tricks but knows when and why to use them. Everything added to your website needs to be added to improve the customer experience, not have the customer leave and say “wow, that website was cool.”
So go ahead and learn how to code, but try it out on your personal blog, not your company image.

This is a long term partnership that will evolve over time. There is still much more to come on this exciting project.
SwaggerCard.com helps individuals & organizations of every kind reach their goals & raise as much money as humanly possible with their custom “swagger cards”. According to CNN.com, Mobile devices account for over 50% of Internet usage in the United States. One feature that the current SwaggerCard.com site lacks is an intuitive mobile design, one that makes the process of user checkout and deal creation simple and fast. The new mobile site will feature mobile app functionality with none of a mobile apps inflexibility. Web-Op recognizes the importance of simple, easy to access deal redemption, the mobile site will focus on this feature. Web-Op wants to help make fundraising as simple as possible and by creating a white-label ready fundraiser page, we will make it easy for organizations to set up, roll-out, and track their Swagger Card fundraisers.
Responsive web design is extremely critical in today’s world; it is necessary for survival among the fittest. No doubt mobile browsing has blown up and continues to grow exponentially. There are times where no matter how good a company’s web site looks on the monitor, if it is not “mobile friendly” and the user gets a poor experience, well, the site might as well be deemed no good at all. On a personal level, I can relate to the importance of mobile browsing. For example, after giving someone my business card usually one of the first things they do is pull out there iPhone, and look at my portfolio. If my personal site was not built with a responsiveness to adapt to different media devices and viewports such as the iPhone; and the viewer looking at my work does not have a good experience, this could jeopardize the integrity of my work and in turn, possibly be loosing future customers and contacts. I would like to quote Andy Clarke, web designer, author and founder of Stuff and Nonesense. Andy says, “Anything that’s fixed and unresponsive isn’t web design anymore, it’s something else. if you don’t embrace the inherent fluidity of the web, you are not a web designer, you’re something else. Web design is responsive design. Responsive Web Design is web design, done right”…
