Radial Web Newsletter
Welcome to the Radial Web January 2015 Newsletter! We haven't sent out one of these in a while, but are excited to get back on track with them. 2014 saw many innovations in the industry, with the most important trend being a continued increase in mobile and tablet website browsing. We look forward to keeping your website up to date in 2015!
Update your Website's Copyright Year
For the past several years, we have emailed our customers in January to make sure the copyright on their website is updated. We mentioned how bad it looks to have an outdated copyright year in the website footer. If your website has an old copyright date and was developed after 2011, let us know and we'll update the date for free. We'll also add a script that will automatically update your copyright year in future years!
(If your website was developed prior to 2011, then you need to update your website, not just the copyright year!)
Responsive Websites now Our Standard
2014 saw a drastic change on the web, with most new websites being designed with a RWD (Responsive Web Design) approach. RWD enables a website to be optimally sized for many different browser screens and platforms, including large screen computers, tablets, and smartphones. We now recommend RWD to all our new clients, unless they specifically request otherwise.
Despite the additional cost for RWD, it is a worthwhile investment and should be strongly considered when designing any new website. It is important to stay up to date in this fast-paced environment, and RWD is a trend that is here to stay for a while.
Radial Website Facelift
We are in the planning stage of launching a new Radial Website. We really like our current website, and are very happy with its look and feel. However, design standards have changed drastically since we launched it in 2009, and it has grown outdated. Stay tuned for our new website launch in the coming months!
