With the Internet, now considered an important business tool, maximising the Internet for businesses is a lucrative medium. The facts don't lie, today, an average of 6 out of 10 purchases are researched online first, and in Australia alone, over $34.5 billion was spent online in the last financial year.
Many businesses are cashing in on the immediacy of the Internet, gaining huge value from the strength of the medium and its ability to generate quality leads, add value to their relationships with prospective clients and ultimately, generate real sales.
But there is a downside to the potential for Internet greatness. 'Cowboy Developers', as professional web developers have disapprovingly dubbed them, take advantage of the desire to make an impact on the Internet, by creating websites that fail to adhere to even the most basic of standards.
These web pages are not usable by the most basic web protocols, aren't technologically up-to-date or optimised to generate real results. The worst thing is, 'Cowboy Developers' fail to distinguish the actual purpose of the company's website which results in many businesses wasting a lot of money trying to properly utilise this tool.
Business owners can now have faith in the useability and result-generating potential of their websites, thanks to the launch of a ground-breaking new organisation.
Website Standards Association (WSA) has been launched - an innovative body that strives to set a high standard for web developers and ensure they produce websites that will actually generate results for businesses.
We are excited to say, all our Resellers have completed their comprehensive training and meet their intensive criteria, to be recognised as WSA certified
