Most companies in Uganda be like – It’s just a website; Call our IT Department. And they ignore expertise & experience. we have seen this so much especially in Uganda as the boss looks to save the budget. while this may save you some money short term, your website will most likely not reflect your brand in terms of quality and may impact your results too. If your website designer has no portfolio (Previous work to show), you may as well have a bad website design
Also Known as “Responsive Design” We all know most of the website visitors always come from mobile phones & tablets (Over 75% of internet traffic), Mobile-friendliness contributes a lot to the quality and usability of your website.

A Slow website not only switches your visitor’s mood off; it also makes them never want to return again, -ever. High load time also takes the attention of search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo away from your website as they don’t like sending people to your slow website.
This is mostly a hosting-related issue if not heavy code or images. There are several ways of optimizing for speed and we always try to make all our websites load faster.
