Advertising locally will bring you local clients, but the web is open world-wide. This means that if your site ranks well enough, or you’ve built enough backlinks to your site from other places, people all over the United States will be contacting you. I’ve never really cared where my clients came from, as long as they were pleasant to work with, and paid me on time. Continue reading

Responsive design has to go beyond optimizing for different screen sizes, write Code and Theory’s Dan Gardner and Mike Treff. Responsive design, which allows designers and developers to build websites that adapt to every screen size, is one of the most empowering web tools to be adopted in the last decade. But adapting to the screen is only the first frontier of a new, responsive web.
