As social media becomes more and more integrated into our businesses, the question if websites are still necessary is being asked more often. Should you drop your website for a free Facebook page?
I’ve created a very limited amount of websites: my personal website using Wix and my blog on WordPress. Both are fairly simple and clean, and I truly enjoyed creating them. Making a website is time consuming and nerve wracking; there are often so many design options that it’s extremely difficult to choose the perfect one. Being a web design beginner, when I was asked to help create Marketing Acuity’s new website I was ecstatic and quite frankly, a little nervous.
The other day, during a blogging boot camp session with a client, we were working with some top web tools for small e-commerce businesses when first her phone, and then my phone both erupted with 'cha-ching!' noises. After the third ‘cha-ching!’ we both laughed and our discussion turned to top web tools for small e-commerce businesses that make that whole ‘cha-ching’ thing work.
If you have worked with WordPress even a little, you know that each site can look dramatically different by just a switch of themes. In fact, there are so many great themes out there (and some crappy ones) that switching themes should be a breeze! Evaluating and switching WordPress themes should come with some cautionary statements: “warning: changing themes could mess up your entire site….or make it truly amazing!”
