Mobile Responsiveness

Responsive design is concerned with creating a great user experience, regardless of what device or browser is used to access your website. It is more important today than ever to design your website to be responsive, as more than 60% of internet users access the internet via their mobile phones, and half of ecommerce transactions are done through mobile platforms. Having a responsive site not only helps users navigate your site easier, but also contributes to increased engagement and conversions.

Website Security

Another important coding practice? Creating secure programs and websites that users can trust with their sensitive personal information. Contrary to popular belief, hackers don’t actively seek out specific websites to hack, which is why even small websites are vulnerable to attack.

Page Speed

About half of users expect a site to load in 2 seconds or less, and if it takes longer than that, 40% of people won’t hesitate to bounce from the page, (likely) never to return. Besides website visits, page speed is important as it also affects conversion and revenue. For every second of added page load speed, sales will drop by up to 27%. Increasing website speed can prevent the loss of 7% of possible conversions.
