Making Your Website Stand Out?

December 08, 2010 By: Reid Category: Marketing and Client Development, TechTip

When a local shopping mall decides to renovate, they do the whole mall so that every storefront is refreshed and looks new. However, when that gigantic shopping mall called the Internet starts to look shabby, it is up to the individual business owners to renovate their own store. If not, that store sticks out like a sore thumb.

How is your website looking these days when compared to other providers of legal services? How about to other business on the Internet? If yours is looking shabby, time for a renovation!

That doesn’t necessarily mean throw out the whole website. Refreshing all text, updating your photo, and improving your biographical information to include hyperlinks to on-line articles and reported cases is a good start. However, technology and design have improved so you may want to consider starting from scratch so you can take full advantage of these improvements.

As websites become more of a marketing necessity, we can no longer just “set it and forget it” (to borrow a phrase). Consider making your website renovation a priority in the New Year.

Facebook tip: List multiple websites on your Facebook profile page

Facebook appears to let you list only a single website or blog on your profile page.

Of course, many people have a website and a blog, and loads of us have connections with multiple websites and/or blogs.

With this simple trick you can list multiple sites on your Facebook profile page: Simply list the URLs for multiple sites in the Website textbox and separate them with a comma. They will display properly as separate links on your Profile page. Not sure if there is an upper limit, but I currently list 5 websites and blogs on my Facebook profile.
