One-Page Parallax

One-page websites place all the content in a single, vertical page.  At first this may seem like a bad idea, but it makes sense.  So many visitors to your site are using smart phones and tablets now and those devices typically have smaller screens.  Navigation that was easy to use with a mouse becomes difficult with a thumb on a small screen.

Website Makeover

It surprises me how many people forget that websites need to stay current so they don’t make you look silly.Attorney Rick Meier, from Kewaunee, WI, spent a good deal of time getting his first site completed. Once that was done, he could focus on other things. Or so he thought… Today, almost a half of all web traffic comes from mobile devices.  Attorney Meier’s old site didn’t look right on smart phones & tablets. The entire website was microscopic and using it was next to impossible. A website makeover not only provided a dramatically new look and feel, but it automatically reformats for smartphones and tablets. Those in the web business call this “responsive design”.  I’m not so sure it requires such a formal title for something so forehead slappingly important.

You Need A Responsive Website Design

Responsive websites automatically change to look great on any size screen. Today, more than a quarter of your traffic comes from smart phones and tablets. If you want your website to remain relevant in this new internet environment, you need to make sure your design works on all of today’s devices, and those yet to come.Don’t you hate having to use a website from your smart phone? The text and pictures are so small and you spend too much time panning and zooming in and out, all the while trying not to accidentally click anything because then you have to start all over. That’s because the site you’re using doesn’t have a responsive design. PM Consulting creates websites that incorporate responsive design. Responsive design is additional code that dynamically adjusts the website as the screen size changes. Want to see how it works?
