It May Be Alive, but Is Your Website Responsive?

what-is-responsive-web-design-700x466January is the best time to get a sales year off to a good start, which means it may be time to examine your website to make sure it’s talking to all the prospects that want to talk to it.

With more and more clients and prospects using mobile devices, it’s very important that your website be accessible to all of them. If it’s not, your prospect may move on simply because your website does not recognize the device on the other end.

We have a number of economical ways to make your online presence more responsive and user-friendly like our SmartTools™, VidiShorts™, SMSMiniMobileSites™, SMSTransPro™ Language Translator tools, and others. Ultimately, converting your site to an SMSResponsiveSite™ that accepts and responds to virtually all devices is something you should seriously consider. That’s the direction Internet marketing is moving, and compatibility with multiple devices is fast becoming a necessity.

Converting your site into an SMSResponsiveSite™ may be the best way to get the New Year off on the right foot.

SMS Adds Two to the Family…

MelissaThe SMS family warmly welcomes two talented additions to their creative design staff, Melissa McDermott and Caitlin Yacovelli.

New Jersey born Melissa is a graduate of the University of Central Florida and her digital media degree perfectly meshes her love of Internet technology and the arts. She’s also passionate about photography and enjoys listening to underground hip-hop music. Melissa was told about SMS by a friend and she found the company’s high-tech industrial clientele and small, close-knit structure to be both a welcome challenge and professionally comfortable. She says, “The variety of clients always keeps things interesting. I would have never expected to be managing websites for producers of glass components or tilt sensors.” Caitlin

Next door in the art department, Massachusetts native and kayaking enthusiast Caitlin combines her accomplished collegiate lacrosse and catalog design backgrounds to keep SMS work competitive and creative. She, too, likes the family-style structure of the agency. Having joined only three months ago she says, “I already feel at home. Cheryl is my work mom, Anita and Angie my work sisters, and Dave that weird neighbor boy who seems to never go home,” adding, “Dave is a great teacher…this has been such an awesome place to learn everything.”

Everyone at SMS is excited to have both Melissa and Caitlin on board.
