Welcome 2011 with something new! Refresh your website with a new look — a techno makeover, if you will!

Here are some things to keep in mind when designing your new site:

  1. Install Google Analytics
  2. Install Google Webmaster and Bing Webmaster Tools Accounts
  3. Run a Crawl Simulation (you never know — you just might miss something the first few times around!)
  4. Test your site through each of these browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera
  5. Set Up RSS

The designers and developers at Citrus Studios are highly proficient in redesigning and renovating websites.

Facebook may have dominated the Internet social networking world in the short time MySpace once did; yet it is still and continues to be a marketing must-have for anyone trying to build an online presence for their business. Facebook is here to stay — it’s a smart move to either add a profile or page on the site for your company.

In addition to creating and/or cementing your brand, Facebook is a fast and efficient way for you to connect with your demographic and have them discover you. Receiving direct (not to mention, free!) feedback from your customers is a plus, too.

Once you have built a page or profile, promoting it to your existing customers can be done through e-mails, a simple link on your website or blog, and more.

Citrus Studios web designers have excellent experience in building and utilizing Facebook for your business on your website. Contact us today so we can show you how Facebook can help your business grow!

Oftentimes when you visit a website, the very first thing you notice is the color aesthetic; yet, when it comes time to deciding what color theme is best-suited for your website, you discover how difficult the task at hand is.

Choosing colors for your website is no simple matter. In addition to the entire psychology of colors, you must know which ones work well together to enhance your visitors’ viewing experience when it comes to web design. Here are some quick tips to help you:

  • Choose natural colors (i.e. neon pink is no good for anyone’s eyes!)
  • Choose colors that will contrast enough to make the important things pop (backgrounds shouldn’t bring too much attention to the visitor)
  • Choose three colors (less is more!)
  • Choose complimentary colors (take a good look at the color wheel)
  • Choose colors that suit your company (i.e. pink for maternity, green for golfing, red for food)
  • At Citrus Studios, our web design staff excel at building stunning, efficient websites that help your company establish its online presence — let us aid you in building one that is right for you and your business.¬†Contact us today!
