Infront Webworks is Moving!

infront-webworks-new-office-thumbnail

We are happy to announce that we are moving office locations! We've been searching high and low across Colorado Springs and found a great spot on the North East side of town on Academy Blvd. You may be familiar with the location: we'll be on the second floor of the north building in the Emerald Plaza office complex, right across the street from the Target near Montebello/Academy, and right next door to the "Texas T-Bone Steakhouse."

Is This Blog Post Helpful?

qualaroo-thumbnail

I've been writing blog posts on and off since 2009, and it's been a fascinating experience. I've watched as I've seen how blogging is an acquired skill; one I've become better at over the past year or so. I've learned how to pick better blog post titles than when I first started, and I've learned how to chop complicated ideas into (I hope) fairly concise posts that summarize an issue or concept quickly and in a simple manner. And I've watched as the traffic on the websites I blog on have jumped with organic search traffic because of it.

Does Your Website Suck?

doessuck

Earlier this week, I gave a talk at a Business Growth Summit that I titled "Beyond SEO: What to do with Your Website Visitors." It was a really fun event and I had more people attend my session than I expected, which was great. I shared a lot of information during the presentation, and had a videographer record the entire talk, but that won't be ready for a few days. So in the meantime, I wanted to post here a checklist that I shared with the audience at the talk: a checklist to help you make sure your website doesn't suck.

Predictions from Steve Jobs About The Web

steve-jobs-thumbnail

I recently watched a video called "Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview," which has some never-before-seen footage of an interview with Steve Jobs from 1995. I must say, I have watched dozens, or maybe hundreds of hours of Steve Jobs' talks, keynote presentations, interviews, and more, and I think this one stands out among many as what may be the most valuable.

Where Our Clients Are

Working in the web design field is wonderful. Nearly everything we do is electronic, so we're not constrained by traditional barriers to business such as shipping costs, geographic limits, sales taxes, fuel prices, and other challenges when selling "physical products."

Bounce Rate Chart

bounce-rates-thumbnail

One of the more common questions I hear when discussing traffic reports and analytical data with clients is "is my website's bounce rate too high?" That's a great question, and here's my quick answer: it depends. There are a lot of factors that go into a good analysis of a bounce rate. Answering a question with a question, I like to respond by saying "high compared to what?" For the record, a "bounce" is when a visitor shows up on your website and then immediately hits the "back" button on his or her browser without looking further or clicking anywhere on your website. A "bounce rate" is the percentage of total visitors that come to your website that then bounce off of it.

Mobile Traffic in 2012

bounce-rates-thumbnail

Now that 2012 has come to a close, I'm really excited (I admit—I am a total nerd) because I can now analyze the traffic reports from last year for our clients. Every week, I spend hours poring over detailed website traffic reports, finding out how many visitors a website received, how long the visitors stayed on the website, what they clicked on, how they found the website in the first place, and much more. But aside from my weekly analysis of a website, I also like to look at entire years as a whole to watch for major trends or patterns of user behavior.

Five Reasons Why We Use Ruby on Rails

rails

When we have initial discussions with potential website clients, one thing we always talk about is our Content Management System (CMS), called SiteWorks. SiteWorks is a CMS we built ourselves using an open source web development framework called Ruby on Rails (often shortened to "RoR"). People who aren't familiar with web development ususally say something like "Ruby what?" with a chuckle, because it sounds like a cross between candy and an amusement park ride. People who are already familiar with web development will also ask about it, but the question they ask is "Why Ruby on Rails?"

The Colorado Balloon Classic

air-balloon-thumb

Over Labor Day weekend, a big event took place in Colorado Springs that drew hundreds of people from all over the country, and even a few people from outside the country—the Colorado Balloon Classic. The Balloon Classic is an annual hot air balloon festival that just celebrated its 36th year, and is the longest continuously-running hot air balloon festival in Colorado. The Balloon Classic group also happens to be an Infront client: we built their website (www.balloonclassic.com). They are a great bunch of folks, and we've really enjoyed being a major sponsor of the event for several years.
