WEBSITE DESIGN NORTHERN BEACHES
Since starting RAM Marketing in 1996, I have been designed in excess of 150 websites for businesses of all shapes and sizes in a broad cross section of industries.
Whether you require a cheap ‘brochure-ware’ website to get your business started, or something more substantial to expand into new marketplaces, or a multi-faceted e-commerce shopping cart that allows you to sell your products to a global marketplace, or something in between, I can help. For the budget conscious, don’t despair – there are lots of solutions available to get your business online.
Most importantly, I don’t just design your website and send you on your way. I want your business to succeed as much as you do! I offer the guidance and support required to ensure your website is optimised correctly for a top Google ranking and provide you with the training and skills needed to ensure your website continues to dominate the search engines.

Mobile Friendly Websites
Only a few years ago, ensuring your website was mobile-friendly (or responsive) was an option for businesses, not a necessity. Oh how things have changed…
Statistics released in January 2014 showed that 65% of the Australian population have a smartphone with this figure expected to increase by a further 15% in 2015. Business owners now need to assess whether their business can afford NOT to ensure their website is smart-device friendly.
Additional research indicates that 90% of smartphone users using their phone to search for local information (52% of whom visited the website after performing a local search), 58% used search engines on their smartphone daily, 78% use their phone to research products and 41% have used their phone to make a purchase.
It doesn’t just stop at smart phones… According to research released in March 2013, sales of media tablets doubled in 2013 to 4.8 million units. By mid 2015 tablet penetration in Australia is expected to exceed computer / PC usage.
Recognising the growth of smart-phone usage, Google now rewards mobile-friendly websites by boosting their position on their search engine ranking. Business owners now need to ask themselves how mobile-device friendly their website is and consider it’s ease of use when viewed on a mobile device or risk losing business and slipping down the search engine rankings.
