This doesn’t happen all the time but it does happen often enough for me to feel frustrated.
- Unprofessional looking, ugly websites
- Logo created by someone who has no design knowledge, skills, or concept of typography
- Asks me to build a site but doesn’t understand how to work with a designer. The general idea is that I work with the software.
- Expects a kick-a$$ website but doesn’t provide much (if any) content.
I hope you’re not offended, but if you follow those links you’ll get the idea. I’m not in the mood to sugar coat.
Jacob Cass, of Just Creative Design has some wonderful articles and information on graphic design with resources.
PLEASE! Don’t ignore your website.
If you put a lot of time into writing and posting information (especially for your business) and rely only on a facebook page that you don’t own….that’s risky.
What will you do if the service goes down or if you somehow lose your account? All of your history, EVERYTHING,will disappear forever.
Your own blog or website will prevent that from happening and they are not very expensive – worth every cent.
Your web site is the mother ship that feeds the social networks. Create content on a regular basis and link to it on you facebook page. It will also increase your search optimization. You’ll look like a professional.
WordPress blogs are a wonderful tool to create a gallery and post your events. I love working with WordPress. You can create pages that have the look and feel of a static website with the ability to write on your blog and continue to update it regularly. Set up your blog to feed your new content automatically to your facebook page. If anything ever happens and God forbid you lose your facebook account or somehow your content gets deleted, you will still have all of your photos and content intact on your own site.
