January 2019 heralds the launch of our new brand, our new website and myself! - Yvonne van Leeuwen, Webz's new Business Development Manager.
Webz began more than ten years ago with Simon Black, our director, pioneering website development in the greater Wellington region. Now sister company, Nuwave has grown up alongside, with specialised software development contracts for local government.
What this means for our clients is that we can provide integrated digital solutions with excellent security. We have the networks in place to bring everything together that you need to run your business smoothly.
To promote this evolution of Webz's business offerings we are proud to launch our new look this month. We look forward to connecting with all our existing clients individually to bring you up to speed with what's happening in the industry and how it may affect your websites' performance.
One of the big changes that has taken place is with Google Maps. Google have now put in place a charging system for map clicks. We will be contacting our clients to discuss how this may affect them. They have also advised of their new protocol in ranking sites based on their responsiveness. If a website is not mobile responsive it will be ranked below those that are. With over 50% of website usage taking place on mobile devices it is imperative that your site views well on smaller screens. Google Analytics can easily show you where customers are 'dropping off' (as well as whether they are viewing on mobile or desktop) which will help you refine your pages for the best customer experience.
