While I was apartment hunting a couple of months ago, I started to notice that about half of the apartment complex websites I visited used the exact same website template and layout. Each site swapped out a few images and colors, but on the whole, each website was a clone of the next. How was I supposed to choose between these complexes when they all seemed the same to me?
There are plenty of reasons to use social media for your business. It helps you connect with your audience, gain followers, increase brand awareness, increase sales, and more. Perhaps one of the biggest reasons to use social media is to send people back to your website. The more people see your website, the more potential you have to increase sales and turn fans into customers.
The new ADA web compliance rules are upon us and many companies are still confused as to how these regulations impact them. To be perfectly clear, any business that has a website should make sure their website is accessible for all who visit it. There are many risks associated with ADA non-compliance, including fines.
Website accessibility is a hot topic following new 2018 legislation that expanded ADA compliance requirements to online resources. Now businesses really need to be asking themselves if their sites are really as accessible as they once believed. Fortunately, the published WCAG 2.0 guidelines are paving the way to easy accessibility for all websites.
For many companies, ADA compliance is all about wheelchair ramps and restroom doors, but now ADA compliance has also become a digital issue. Businesses who fall under ADA rules must also provide accessibility for their websites to all users, whether they are accessing the web from a desktop computer or a specialty device. So how does your website stack up when it comes to ADA compliance?
Getting your website set up to meet ADA standards doesn’t have to be difficult. Thanks to the guidelines published and recently updated, web creators now have a simple framework to follow when building sites with accessibility in mind. These six tips will give you an idea of what you can do right away to bring your site up to speed.
For many companies, the idea of compliance with the ADA may seem foreign. Most people think of the ADA only in terms of building codes and public accessibility, but Title II of the ADA does extend to web services as well. For instance, government entities that offer 24/7 services through their websites are expected to offer a variety of accessibility for both the hearing and vision impaired. Here are some of the things you should be considering as you manage your web design.
There could be potential customers who are not able to use your website; If your website is not ADA (Americans Disability Act) compliant to accommodate a person with things such as a visual or hearing impairment, you could be missing out on revenue. No one wants that!
Web accessibility is all about making sure all people, including those with disabilities, can have equal access to your website. This is simply the right thing to do. Imagine being blind, deaf, or motor-impaired, and trying to navigate your vacation rental website. Would you be able to successfully make a reservation, or check availability for your properties? Or would it be a difficult, terrible experience?
Websites are becoming so dynamic. Web developers (like me) now have so many new tools and techniques to make unique, interactive websites. It’s exciting to see the trends happening in the web design world and get inspired for future projects.
