Mobile Responsive Website

All new websites that we design this year,  are Mobile Responsive.   We have also started updating the websites of past clients so their websites are more user friendly and Mobile Responsive.  A website that is Mobile Responsive adapts the display according to the device that is accessing it.

If you access a Mobile Responsive website from a smart phone or Ipad,  it is much, much easier to read than a nonresponsive.   The tech gurus are telling us that computers and laptops will soon be a thing of the past.  More and more people are accessing the internet via mobile devices.  Therefore, it is important that your HOA has a site that is readable from a mobile device.

To see the difference, try accessing the following addresses with a smartphone.
As of this writing, Talavera’s website (talaverahoa.net) has not been updated and is not mobile responsive.  Marble Leaf (marbleleaf.com) DOES have a Mobile Responsive website.

Pew Internet Research states that as of January 2014:

90% of American adults have a cell phone
58% of American adults have a smartphone
32% of American adults own an e-reader
42% of American adults own a tablet computer

Effective communication helps establish harmony…

“Effective communication helps to establish harmony in the community. The more effective the communication, the more successful will be the management of the association. A difficult aspect of communication is assuring that owners within a community have the opportunity to receive and/or access information.” ©Association Times

When developers anticipate turning over neighborhood associations to the homeowners, they need to prepare residents and communicate what the plan for transition will be, at least 6 months in advance. If preparation and communication does not take place, sooner or later, chaos will occur.

With the rising costs of postage, the internet provides a reasonable and timely way to communicate with each other. It is recommended that a developer create a website for the HOA as a part of its overall community plan. This is important for four reasons: (1) creates a stable link of communication during change and uncertainty, (2) creates an important depository of information for the HOA, meaning less calls to the developer; (3) HOA website creation promotes identity and neighborhood pride; (4) over time, members will habitally go to the website for important HOA information.
