2012 New Year’s Resolutions

It’s a new year and that means it’s time to reflect on 2011 and set resolutions for 2012.

Here at MarketNet, the resolutions we’re focused on for the new year are 1280×800, 1366×768, 1280×1024, 480×320, 320×480, and good old 1024×768. Oh and also 1440×900, 1920×1080, 1680×1050, 800×600, 2560×1440, and 480×360. And 320×240. Those are just some of the hundreds of different screen resolutions of visitors to this blog. In the top 10 alone the widths range from 320 to 2,560 pixels.

Still think your 995 pixel wide site is the best experience for every visitor? How well does your primary messaging come across when viewed zoomed all the way out on a mobile phone? And what kind of new experiences could you be delivering to people taking advantage of a beautiful 27″ high-res monitor?

The number of different scenarios where your website will be viewed is huge and only increasing.

There is no fold. Well actually, there are dozens of them. (Image: thereisnofold.com)

The days of “one size fits all” websites are long behind us. A site’s design and content strategy must consider the best way to communicate to visitors in many different contexts and the best way to achieve your business objectives regardless of what device is used to hit your site.

Oh, and we also need to hit the gym more.
