Responsive landing pages

A landing page is usefull because they help increase conversion rates. The main reason for this is that targeted promotion or product specific landing pages are focused on a single objective that matches the intent of the ad that your visitors clicked on to reach your page.

Websites

Today, more and more consumers use the internet to search for the products or services they need. Your small business will gain credibility by having a website. Without one, potential customers will go to your competitors that do.

With more and more visitors accessing your website on mobile devices, it is important to make sure that all of your visitors have a positive experience, regardless of what type of device they're using to get there. If your website takes too long to download, or is not easy to use on a mobile device, you probably lose the visitor.

Some pretty responsive websites I created:

Webshops

In today’s world of commerce basically anything and everything can be sold over the Internet. While some types of businesses’ call for a regular brick & mortar store to be successful, one should never dismiss the option of selling online, either in addition to a physical store or as a main source for sales.

It is important to analyze your business (or business plan) to see if selling online could work for you because you may find the benefits of selling online greatly outweigh the alternative.

Webapps

Not every Web Application is a landing page, website or webshop. Some ideas are too out-of-the-box to fit into existing platforms. You can think about Data Analysis (DA), Content Management Systems (CMS), Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and ofcourse Application Programming Interface (API).

Frameworks and Libraries depend on the requirements of the application. Mostly I use Symfony Components for every PHP webapp. For API software I would use Lumen, an micro-framework with Symfony Components. But when building bigger CMS-like applications I like to use the Laravel framework.
