Packed full of useful tips and workflows on how to approach & communicate with clients. The 9-step process gives you a blueprint on best-practice for website projects, from SEO to prototyping, content strategy & calls to action, this book is a must read for web agencies, designers & developers.
It's a brief, to-the-point summary about making sure your website is working hard for you as a business tool. Too often I see organizations enter the website-building process without clear goals in mind that align to their business strategy. This book will help ask yourself questions like:
Is the content on my site specifically written and designed for the audience I want to attract?
What do I want a website visitor to DO once they get to my site?
Am I placing calls to action in the right places?
Am I making best use of social media engagement within my site?
Lots of good nuggets in here. A highly-recommended quick read.
As a graphic designer that is often involved in web design projects, the book provides clear and easy to define steps that will work for my company site as well as clients. "a_website_that_works" should be required reading for anyone involved in website design on client and agency sides.
Since implementing this model, our traffic has increased more than 5 fold and we receive a constant influx of leads.
