Melbourne Web Sites and Marketing
Are you tired of web site builders who don’t understand you?
Need someone who will actually LISTEN to what you need, what your business needs, what your customers need?
You need someone who has enough actual real-life experience building web sites and running an online business to be able to help you through the tricky bits, and advise you on what is possible.
Someone who will totally blow your mind with ideas about what can be done. Ideas you have never heard of. More importantly, ideas that your COMPETITORS have never heard of.
Here at Gecko Gully, the team is lead by Christine F. Abela, who has many years of experience creating web sites for small businesses like yours. She has specialised in sites for craft businesses, but brings her gentle down-to-earth approach to all her client relationships.
Christine’s service and expertise has been essential in establishing and maintaining our web presence. She understands our business and has been vital in giving us peace of mind. Thanks once again!
Christine has been a Godsend for me, She has always helped me out when websites are having problems and in such a way that I do not feel stupid in asking naive questions. I have learnt a great deal over the years from her vast knowledge of the internet and her extreme patience with this little old biddy.
Even though we are small. we receive a quick response for any difficulty we have ever had. Nothing is ever too small or unimportant.
Christine doesn’t talk Geek. You will be able to understand her. And she will be able to understand you, and your business. She knows that you need to be shown how to do things online, that it doesn’t come naturally to everyone. This is why she has made LOTS of videos to explain various things you might need to know about how your web site works.
She also provides you with high-quality professionally-made videos that explain in more detail the general areas of running an online site, like this one…
Gecko Gully is heavily into educating people how to better run their online business. Check out the blog posts (links on the right), which are sourced from the very best online authorities. Or subscribe to the mailing list (top right) to be sent a digest of these posts by email every week.

It has had over 4000 downloads, and over 40 glowing reviews saying how easy it is to understand, not just for craft businesses. Now, wouldn’t YOU like an expert like that on your team?
Speaking of team, you don’t just get to work with Christine. The Gecko Gully team is expanding to include a designer, a sales person, and a copywriter. It has taken quite some time to gather these professionals together, and the team will be expanded further as needed. You will always be looked after!

So you did your research and you understand the importance of building a mobile web site. That’s great.
You are genuinely ahead of the video game when it comes to the world of online marketing.
Now you need to understand the best ways to develop the most effective mobile web site possible … and, no, it is nothing like building a standard site.
A mobile internet site is a new kind of site, and it involves a distinct set of considerations.
Here are five important elements for your mobile internet site:
If you are at all experienced in internet design, then you’ve more than likely heard the phrase, “content is king.”.
Mobile internet design relegates material to a brand-new level, below navigability.
Sure, it is still essential that your content is precise, relevant, interesting, and simple to understand.
Nevertheless, the most important thing is that your content is short, concise, and devoid of any unnecessary terminology.
A good guideline is that it must all fit on one page (and on a small cell phone screen, at that).
2) Graphics and navigation buttons.
Keep the touch screen in mind when designing a mobile website.
Any great mobile website must have thumb-friendly navigation buttons.
Additionally, other graphics should be kept to a minimum.
3) Single column design.
You don’t expect your site visitors to need to work to view your page.
It ought to not be necessary to zoom or scroll to fit your site’s content on the screen.
The most efficient method of displaying your mobile site is in a single column, which will certainly be compatible with most cell phone screens.
4) Make use of the mobile device’s integrated performance.
This is all of those things a cell phone can do that a desktop or laptop computer can’t do– telephone call and GPS, for instance.
To help the user experience, provide a method to gain access to these features so that your site visitors can call or locate your company with simply the touch of a button.
5) Navigation layout.
In addition to having basic, large-scale navigation buttons and search boxes, you need to also organize your website’s navigation tools in such a way that integrates well into the column format.
You may opt to stack them, put them in a drop-down menu on top or bottom of the page, or present them as the web page.
As you can see, mobile internet design is a whole new ballgame.
It is very important to keep all these considerations in mind if you are to build a reliable mobile site.
