WEB DESIGN OVERVIEW
Studies tell us about the ROBO effect where consumers are learning to research online and buy offline. Without a web presence, you never enter into potential clients' thought process. A website can be a powerful sales tool allowing you to instantly address your customers’ concerns and provide the information they need to make informed decisions. Your website is your territory where clients can go to find trusted information about your company and engage with you on a more personal level. Your website also builds confidence in your brand and gives clients important buying information.

Website Designs & Types
Websites use to be developed with fixed dimensions. This is because they were generally viewed on a desktop monitor. Today's website visitors need to be able to access to a functional (and, ideally, beautiful) version of your site on whatever device they have within reach. Adroit Design Firm, LLC utilizes two main design options, fixed and responsive.
Fixed Website Design: Websites that are built using fixed design relying on fixed pixel widths. A design with fixed dimensions can sometimes be the quickest way to get up and running, however many would argue that it'll be less user-friendly across multiple devices.
Responsive Website Design: Websites that are built with responsive design use media queries to target breakpoints that scale images, wrap text and adjust layout so that the website can "shrink to fit" any size of screen.
There are a variety of website types, each specializing in a particular type of content or use, and may be classified in any number of ways.
One of our services includes web hosting and Adroit Design Firm, LLC takes security seriously. As a result, in hosting your website we have the ability to utilize the https protocol. There are two (2) types of protocols used by the world wide web (www) and these protocols define how data is transmitted, http & https. The main difference between http and https is the SSL Certificate. Sites that loads on https use SSL Certificate to send and receive the information in encrypted state. While on http, the data is sent in text format, which can easily be read by anyone. HTTPS also improves the search engine optimization(SEO) of the site.
There are quite a few companies that offer free web hosting, however that comes with security risks. By using the https on your site, instead of http, you take a big step to secure the data of the site. Without installing the SSL Certificate, the site is an easy target for Data Theft. In addition, with one of Google's updates, Google said that it will give a push to the ranking of the sites that use https, the need of using https has become more prominent.
What is GRAPEVINE POSTS?
Grapevine Posts allows you to rent a webpage for a specific amount of time. A concept similar to renting a billboard. The purpose of Grapevine Posts is to facilitate the sharing of information related to special events/occasions. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. are popular social media sites that share information, however not everyone has or desires to have social media accounts.
