Happy Halloween from the team at Broadbiz

As we approach Halloween (a US phenomenon that has found its way over here – Ed), many local shops are dressing up their windows and in black and orange to celebrate the festival.

How do we achieve this, technically?

Although this looks very different to the usual Broadbiz website, it can actually be achieved quite easily with a little skill, technical knowledge and use of the web design tools available to us. Scroll down to see what the original website looked like.

  • CSS – cascading stylesheets are used for all layout on our site and we have created an additional stylesheets (under 200 lines of code) defining the use of fonts and colours
  • Google Fonts – Google provide a wide range of fonts which we can embed into websites, this one featuring dripping blodd is called Nosifer.

Given the ease of this, we plan to make this a regular feature as we approach other events such as Christmas, Valentine’s Day, Easter, etc. if you want to be kep up-to-date with what is going on, please feel free to sign up to our newsletter.

Thanet Business Network Redesign – Now Live!

Broadbiz are proud to be part of Thanet Business Network who are an established business network, meeting at Quex Barn every Wednesday morning.

As well as being members, we also look after their web presence and have been working hard on a new redesign for them, which has now been launched. You can view the new website layout by visiting

Before and After

Further to the previous design, Broadbiz felt that the website could be revamped to produce a cleaner look with a simple navigation system. We have also made the website mobile friendly as these days over 60% of web traffic comes from your mobiles and tablets.

About Thanet Business Network

The website contains several pages which shows the members of the networks as well as a massive range of the services that they provide. By using the search facilities, visitors can find what they are looking quickly and efficiently. It also includes Facebook and Twitter share facilities so that in one-click, anyone can share the page that they are on.

We see this as a platform for the future of the Thanet Business Network online and already we are getting new ideas from members on how we can communicate, do business and attract more customers.

Mobile Friendly

According to website analytics, 60% of internet users are most likely to be browsing on their mobile device(s). With this taken into account, a responsive website on all platforms will benefit the website owner as well as the visitors.
