β€‹β€‹βš™οΈ Tools I wish I had known about when I started coding

In the tech world, there are thousands of tools that people will tell you to use. How are you supposed to know where to start?

I am by no means an expert, but over time I have compiled a list of tools that have proven extremely useful to me. If you are just starting to learn how to program, this will hopefully offer you some guidance. If you are a seasoned developer, hopefully you will still learn something new.

3 Key Tips for Building a Successful Website

1 – Make your site mobile responsive

This used to be a suggested option. But today more than 62% of shoppers make purchases over their cellphones. More than 90% use smartphones while shopping in retail stores to compare prices.

2 – Be sure to place your contact information above the fold

There might be times people want to contact you or your business or call your sales team. Thus, you need to put your contact information where it will be easily located. If you're using social media, put links at the header or footer for the same reason.

3 – Respect the need for speed

A busy shopper will have little patience with a website page that's slow to load or a website that's simply too buggy. 83 percent can't tolerate slow-loading sites. Roughly a third of them can be expected to seek out a competitor's site. A whopping 88% will consider looking elsewhere if a site is buggy and not behaving well.

Make certain to keep your site updated so it runs smoothly. Videos and images should be optimized for quicker downloads. You need to use a host that can handle your site's bandwidth demands.
