I know, that doesn’t sound right, but, yeah, we do! it’s true!
With the introduction of all these beautiful frameworks and plugins we can take a simple website and add some extra polish to it, animations, fades, hovers, database smarts, pretty much anything you can shake a stick at. (And I’ll tell you what, there isn’t much I can;t shake sticks at)
The problem with using all the beautiful technologies is that it opens up a lot of areas for things to just not work right. But guess what, for us web developers, it is exciting, it is new and we love it. I personally love solving problems (as long as they get solved)
The beauty of this is that, as a small business in the Hawkesbury, you get a better website (one that is on par with larger companies that can afford a team of designers, UI and UX experts, a developer, an analytics expert, a project manager and account manager), your customers see a better product (even if they don’t realise it) and you look that little but more professional. It is knowing the balance of something nice and something overdone is what I do. I reckon I do it pretty well.
The downside is that it takes longer to complete, as we need to check all browsers, because just as people, no browser is built the same. So we need to test it on everything, time consuming, but well worth it.
Remember that everyone is trying to stand out from the crowd. Sometimes it is that little eyebrow raise from the potential customers that will turn them into customers.
