You will hear us constantly talking about mobile this, mobile that and there are good reasons for it! Put bluntly if you're serious about your website and it's not mobile ready then you need a wake up call!
It's time to stop sitting back and waiting for everything to be ok, mobile is here and it's not going anywhere, in fact the probability is you're reading this on your mobile right now.
So let's go back a few steps. When I started building websites over 10 years ago, Adobe Flash was the bomb! Having animated funky websites was where it was at, then Apple dropped the bomb with lack of support for Flash on iOS devices and the world almost ended, but we didn't even think about mobiles then as the only thing we were worried about was our funky cases on the Nokia 3210. Back then we thought England winning a World Cup was more likely than us browsing a website on a mobile device!
And so the mobile revolution began and slowly but surely it changed the way we live our daily lives, constantly connected to our mobile, caring for it like a child of our own. We rely on it to get us to where we need to be, to order our food and to stay connected with friends on Facebook.
Anyway how does this relate to your website and how important is it right now? Well if you value your business and I'm sure you do, you want the best website for your budget right? If your website is not mobile ready right now you could be losing out in a big way.
Earlier this year Google started to penalise websites that are not mobile ready, so if a user searches for a phrase on their mobile device and your website is not mobile friendly it may not be listed or would be pushed down the pecking order. It makes perfect sense though, if a mobile user is looking for a website and you present them with a horrific experience then this makes Google look bad! Google doesn't like that.
You can easily check if your website is mobile friendly by using the free Google tool here.
So what is the solution you ask? It's should be obvious by now, get a mobile ready website! You will hear the term responsive website design, this is the perfect solution to cover mobile friendliness as your one website will automatically change the way it looks depending on the device you are viewing it on, hoorah!
We provide bespoke affordable web design packages that are 100% mobile friendly. So if you aren't mobile ready, take that leap now, go on, your website deserves it.
And if you are already a customer of ours and we shamefully have built you a non mobile friendly website pre mobile friendly revolution we apologise! Let us upgrade you!

Jack and his team are great! They are always on hand to help with our website and any updates we need adding are always done quickly! I couldn't recommend Cloud Web Solutions enough especially if you're a startup or small business.
Very happy with Cloud Web Solutions. My account manager Jack has always replied to my emails swiftly and dealt with any issues promptly without any fuss. I am also very happy with the design of my website and the easy to use content management system. Would not hesitate to recommend Jack and his co-workers.
Cloud Web Solutions has worked patiently and methodically with us to deliver an optimised website, full of all the features we wanted for those who use it. Nothing was too much trouble for Jack and the team during the build process and their continued support is invaluable. Delighted!
Cloud delivers websites at electrifying speed and without over-complication or jargon. Realistically priced and strong knowledge of all coding issues; also at odds with an industry too often characterised by inflated costs, technical flaws and dreadful service - highly recommended.
I created my business around 6 months ago with very little capital but needed a website to help market. I was actually recommended Cloud Web Solutions and from day 1 I've had the most amazing experience. Not only was my website designed to a high standard, I pay a monthly direct debit that has helped in my first year. I also know after 2 years, I can rebrand and keep my costs. Jack has been fantastic, and would recommend all businesses to use this fantastic service. I will also add, all my queries and requests are always dealt with very quickly and extremely professionally.
I find Cloud Web Solutions very professional and committed to delivering a first rate service to their customers. Jack's attention to detail and understanding of what the client needs together with his patience with the fine tuning process is a refreshing change to my past experience with website developers. I would definitely recommend Cloud Web Solutions for a first class service whatever the size of your business.
Highly recommended!Very good communication and always answered my queries...I recently asked for some improvements for my website and that was done straight away for me without any hesitation and exactly the way I want it!Thank you so much Jack and the team for everything you are doing for me and my business! Keep up the good work!
Cloud Web solutions were fantastic in designing and building our website. They spent a lot of time listening to our needs and the service is exceptional! Thank you
Using Cloud Web Solutions was easy, stress-free and priced extremely competitively. Every step of the process was explained in full and the team were both friendly and informative. 10 out of 10, would wholeheartedly recommend.
Cloud provides a fast accurate and intelligent service both in building sites and maintaining them. It is competitive and effective. It is my first port of call for all my websites and I recommend it all the time to others, so I am glad I have a chance to put something on this site to encourage people to use it.
