What next? How do you make it work for you? Can you make your website work as
hard for your business as your best employee? The most important question is can
I make my website pay for itself?
The answer to all of these questions depend on the actions you take next. The
first step I would take after having a website built for my business is to set
up a schedule for updating the content on my new site. Simply schedule a regular
time each day, week or month to review and update your website. The schedule
depends upon the type of business you are in. An online store needs more
attention than a brochure type website. A site with a blog calls for periodic
additions to the blog. Whatever the need, set a schedule and stick to it.
The second step is to look for ways to utilize your website to reduce staff time
on unproductive activities. I have written extensively about this in the past
but a few examples are posting product tutorials that free staff of having to
perform product demonstrations. Post frequently asked questions and the answers
on your website. Webinars and other online activities can reduce travel expense,
increase potential audiences and reduce staff and associate travel time.
Third, advertise and promote your website. Let customers and potential customers
know the site exists and what type of content it offers. Drive people to your
website with sales, little known information and relevant content. Think about
your website as the staff member that never sleeps, takes a day off or goes on
Fourth, develop a system for dealing with leads generated from your site,
questions asked via email and site comments. Treat these visitor interactions
the same as face to face transactions.
These basic tips will get you started. Stay tuned as we look in to other ways to
make your website work for you.
|A 32 MPH All-Terrain
Electric Skateboard Steered With a Kinect
Yes, You read that correctly.
Popular Science has an article highlighting the creator named "Board
of Awesomeness" built by
Chaotic Moon. The
skateboard can reportedly reach speeds of 32mph and is voice, data and motion
controlled. (Video is available via the Popular Science link)
I know people that shouldn't be allowed to drive cars at 32mph let alone a skate
board. This is one of the geekiest (doesn't make it bad) items I have come
across in a long time. It certainly opens eyes regarding the power of some of
the current gaming systems.
Combining a skateboard, a laptop and Kinect seems like a recipe for disaster but
this mix of technology could have several meaningful applications. The
possibilities of combined technology are endless and promise to continue to
surprise us as they develop.
