put on your Web site to keep your visitors interested and informed
and the search engines happy.
Web site operators understand the importance of displaying well
written text on their Web pages. They know that it's the high
quality and value of their written content that helps get their
Web sites listed in top positions with the major search engines.
compelling copy to satisfy both search engine spiders and human
readers is never an easy task. Because search engines and humans
each have different requirements, weaving keywords and keyword
phrases into a Web page's body text to achieve maximum effect
is often a tedious, demanding process.
for ESL Clients
you allow grammatical errors, misspelled words and other mistakes
to appear on your business Web pages, many of your site's visitors
won't take you seriously. They not only question your competence,
but your integrity, too. If you don't consider the nuances of
American English, you could reduce your visitors to fits of
laughter, or worse, send them scurrying away in disgust.
effective means of identifying a myriad of problems that plague
Web sites, critiques make it
possible for Web site owners to fix mistakes themselves and
put their on-line businesses back on the fast track to success.
summary, if your Web site has that "open for business"
professional look, including professionally written and edited
text, your site's visitors assume that you are a business professional
because you've branded yourself as one, and they'll be more
likely to do business with you.
Web pages are a great way to promote yourself on-line.
You can post a resume, a personal profile or a description of
your services. Use a personal Web page as a message board to
keep in touch with family or friends, or use it to display arts
and crafts and other items for sale. Use it for lots of things.

and maintaining a Web presence makes sense for almost anyone
who's in business. Whether you want to promote and sell a single
product or service (or a multitude of them) on-line, or you
just want to promote yourself as an authority on a particular
subject to increase your popularity or credibility, the Internet
makes it possible. You can get your message to thousands,
perhaps millions, of people who are your potential customers.
visitors access your site, they come with the expectation of
possibly doing business with you if you can provide
them with the goods, services or information they're looking
for, in a reasonable amount of time. Busy people don't want
to be entertained for three minutes while the fancy graphics
on your entry page load into their browser window. They want
to get into your site, find what they need and get out in the
shortest possible time.
that reason, you won't find any "bells and whistles"
in my Web site designs. For most businesses, simplicity is best.
Big department stores don't heap all of their merchandise in
a single pile on the floor, have entry doors that take three
minutes to open and they don't subject their shoppers to a song-and-dance
routine before allowing them into the store. they don't do it
and neither should you.
business Web site designs feature fast-loading pages, clean
page layouts, literate text and easy navigation to give your
customers and potential customers the best possible experience.
Furthermore, I design each Web site with expandability in mind,
so your Web site can grow to keep pace with, or set the pace
of, your business growth.
all of my Web site services I stress the importance of professionalism
above all else. Why? Because, professionalism embraces every
aspect of a successful on-line business (or any business, for
that matter), including appearance, attitude, commitment, credibility,
ethics, honesty, integrity, reputation,
trust and intelligence, to name the obvious. It's all but impossible
for businesses that maintain professional standards to fail.
sooner you begin to look like a professional, the sooner you'll
begin to get professional results. When you're ready
to upgrade your Web site, or build a new one, to professional
standards, contact me. I can
