I work as the web dev/design/graphic designer/social media/marketing asst. at a small company downtown that's been around for decades. I'm having a really hard time trying to implement new things. They love Facebook and all the social things, but they dumb down the design of our brand site to the lowest denominator. I feel like they're wrong, but are they? What is the best way to optimize our site to look amazing and work for most of our users?

It's the jewelry industry and my boss is always saying that they're not computer-savvy enough for certain things, even simple things like tooltips that only require hovering for a second.

What are the optimal settings to design for that are most compatible? How can I work with this or around it? Clearly, I'm a novice in development and strategy for this kind of thing. Is there any advice/ideas/criticism anyone could offer me? I'd greatly appreciate it.
