We designed the site architecture to make it more user-friendly. Those coming to the EDC website want to quickly be able to find resources for their business and information about commercial real estate in Hendry county – so we made it easy to quickly find and navigate to whatever the end user might be are looking for.
As we developed the site, it was important to make it responsive on all mobile devices, since more users are browsing the web on their mobile phones. Another important element was making the website compliant with WCAG 2.0 guidelines, which make the website accessible to any users with disabilities.
SEO is necessary to make sure that any users searching for Hendry EDC, or users looking for business resources and commercial real estate in Hendry County, are able to find the website. Throughout the development & post-launch of the site – we included many technical and content-driven steps, like featuring certain keywords throughout the site, to make sure the site will rank well in search engines.
