Is Your Website Mobile Friendly?

February 12th, 2017

More websites are now accessed from mobile phones and tablets than from desktop computers so it is important that your club or coaching business website is ‘responsive’, i.e. it recognises that it is being viewed on a phone/tablet and automatically adjusts its layout accordingly to make it easy to navigate/view.

Accessing a website that isn’t responsive can be very difficult on a smart phone/tablet and many people will just give up if your website can’t cater for smart devices.    If your website isn’t responsive, the good news is that there are many platforms available that are automatically responsive and will also provide you with a future proof site that is easy to setup and maintain.

Want to Use a Memorable Domain Name with your NGB provided website?

February 2nd, 2017

tipiconA number of National Governing Bodies (NGB) now offer software to their affiliated clubs and coaches that enables them to create and maintain their own website.  An example of this is the ClubSpark system provided to affiliated tennis venues and coaches by the Lawn Tennis Association.

If your club/business is using one of these services, the site address will usually have the name of the system included which may result in the website address not being particularly memorable.   For example, Shifnal Tennis Club’s web address on the ClubSpark system is https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/ShifnalTennisClub – not exactly easy to remember!

That’s where a service called WEB FORWARDING comes in – you can create/use a memorable domain name of your choice and redirect any visitor using it to your NGB website address.
