This post was written by DeAnne Curran a senior designer and developer here at Visible Logic.
I am proud that I had a chance to speak at Maine’s very first WordCamp, August 15-16, 2014. I was a participant on the design panel, and got to share with the group some thoughts on our process, the tools we use and design trends.
If you are a client of Visible Logic that has had a WordPress walk through with me then you know I can’t stop raving about how much I love WordPress. What’s not to love, it’s easy to use for our clients and has lots of features and built-ins that make our work easier plus the ability to create something totally custom.
As I meet with different people and learn about their business, it seems very common for business owners to be ashamed, frustrated or embarrassed by their web site.
For most business owners, there is a moment of celebration when their web site is completed and finally goes live. It may their first web site for a new business, or a redesigned web site for an existing organization. It probably took a significant investment of time and or money to complete and when it’s launched, it deserves to be celebrated.
Unfortunately, a web site that was a shining star, quickly becomes tarnished. It goes from sales tool to albatross. Something to share, to something to hide.
As a web design and development firm, we create a lot of web sites and set up a lot of blogs. There are many great reasons to add a blog to your business web site. The majority of web sites we build these days seem to have a blog built in. Unfortunately, I would also add that a majority of web site owners are not ready to blog.
Here are 7 signs that you’re not ready to blog, plus some ideas to get you ready.
Writing a blog for your business can be a great way to market your product or services. Starting a blog can feel a bit overwhelming, but the effort can be worthwhile.
Here are 7 reasons why you should add a blog to your company’s web site and how to do it right.
For your web site to go live, you need to have web hosting in place. This is not an article about best web hosting services this is about who should register, manage and maintain the actual hosting account.
First of all, you should realize that very few web designers or web development firms do their own hosting. Web site hosting requires a large investment in hardware and a commitment to maintaining that infrastructure and offering technical support. Your web designer probably does not do that. In fact, I’d question why any small web firm would want to offer their own hosting.
