Each year on the 1st of August is World Wide Web Day! It is an international celebration dedicated to web browsing – the online activity that gives you informational access to the entire world. The World Wide Web was created by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 at the CERN Centre in Geneva, Switzerland, as a way for him to communicate with co-workers via hyperlinks. 32 years later, the World Wide Web has become the main source of interaction, transaction, information, and communication among humans. Globally the number of users increased from 413 million in 2000 to over 3.4 billion in 2016, meaning that every day over the past 5 years, an average of 640,000 people went online for the first time. The ways in which the World Wide Web has also changed in how it is used has significantly evolved over the past years. With cloud services, the worldwide end-user spending on them is forecast to grow 23.1% in 2021 to total $332.3 billion, up from $270 billion in 2020. The gaming industry has increased by half a billion players in the past three years, totalling 2.7 billion people globally. The report predicts more than 400 million new gamers are expected by the end of 2023. Finally, there are 4.48 billion social media users around the world in July 2021, equating to almost 57% of the total global population.
For your business to continue to have new customers, the World Wide Web is how most people will find your business, especially if they know what service they want. For instance, when someone types in ‘digital design agency in Taunton,’ we come up near the top of the list – that is what you need from your website, and it is where we can help you! Your website is your main online presence, and a window into the business that creates an initial first impression of your brand. The reality is that buyers can make a subconscious decision to spend money with you (or not) in the first few seconds, and this is down to the visual and technical quality of your website. At Dexterous Designs, we create beautiful website solutions and professional, fast, and reliable websites that perform! Our experts create high-standard brochure style and informational websites, where prospects get their first impression of what to expect. We understand your business can be unique and your website needs to be too. Some sites also have some extraordinarily complex and custom-made systems – product configurations, booking facilities, integration of other back-end systems – we pride ourselves in creating the best solution for you! The website services we offer include Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) and Pay Per Click (PPC) services, website hosting, WordPress, ongoing support/maintenance, e-Commerce, and Content Management System training.
