Just read this tweet from Pam Slim
wow, for such an amazing and prolific woman, what a bad website. http://www.mayaangelou.com/
And it made me realize something… that in the online world, our websites are the equivalent of ‘business attire’. And a poor site can actually reflect negatively on the person in the same way that shoulder pads and an outdated haircut will in the corporate world.
Our websites are what we are ‘wearing’ online – and I think we may need to call Stacy & Clinton to do a bit of website intervention for some folks. It is SO much easier these days to get a really professional website done for a very reasonable price (if you need a referral to someone let me know)… and for that reason I think that anyone serious about doing business online needs to be willing to invest in their ‘look’.
Perhaps it is time to start What Not to Wear – the website edition. Anyone care to nominate a friend for a makeover? Just pop their name here into the comments field and we can plan our ambush. 😉
