Not another drive-by Billboard!
Building a compelling website or successful eCommerce store requires more than slapping up a bunch of content into a WordPress theme and pushing it out on the Internet. I’m reminded of a business coach who gave me quite a jolt a few years back when he told me that my website at the time was just like a drive by billboard. Just like so many of the billboards we pass on the highway, my website was something that people surfed by and promptly forgot. Imagine instead, he went on to say, that your website clearly communicated your brand and worldview? Think bigger than a billboard, he gestured, how about your website as an active channel for people to understand you, resonate with you and want to reach out to you and your business as a result?
