We witness the ritual every day. Web sites go live as a result of a multitude of man hours invested in planning, technology, design, copywriting, and managemen,t and released as a product left to sustain itself amidst an ever-changing competitive, sometimes hostile marketplace. The web site launch is celebrated as “success,” when in reality, the success really should be in the RESULTS achieved after the launch.
Every aspect of web site design, content management, search engine optimization, usability, and integration with marketing must be proactively and deliberately infused in order to insure the web site’s ability to support organizational goals and performance.
We’ll explore how mindful and strategic integration of key marketing aspects from the earliest stages of planning can be used to transform a web site from an exercise in technology to a results-driven environment that will support immediate and long-term goals.Good web sites become great when you can;
It may all seem like common sense, but all too often, when it comes to planning and practice, we often let the “next best thing” distract us from keeping our eye on the ball.
