As a veteran designer, developer and project manager on more sites than I can count, I’ve identified a common problem with many web projects: failure to plan. As the same issues come up repeatedly in my work, I’ve written this guide in order to help our clients, other designers, businesses and organizations plan and realize successful websites.
Who This Guide Is For Written in relatively non-technical language, this guide provides a broad overview of the process of developing a website, from the initial needs assessment through site launch, maintenance and follow up.

Today’s infographic is a good primer on what it takes to effectively run a conversion rate optimization campaign. However, one thing that I would like to add to this recipe is documentation. Conversion rate optimization is a science project. You’re dealing with data, hypotheses, results, measurement techniques and sources of error. Sounds like chemistry class right? Proper documentation is extremely helpful for interpreting results, understanding sources of error and providing historical record keeping for future testing. If you’re running conversion rate experiments today, you may have to hand the baton off to someone else when you move on. If you’re…

Ahhh, the irrefragable, irreplaceable #hashtag — the trending topic tracker, the great group aggregator — it seems to have been around forever but it no doubt has its origins. In use since ca. 1988 in the early Internet’s IRC chatrooms to define network-wide channels [ah yes, I remember such long-standing pillars as #warez, #kcah, and #n0n00bz … or wait, were those early AOL chatrooms?]. The hashtag supposedly came into its modern “web” format in 2007 when Chris Messina, who claims to have invented them (for which he actually surpasses Al Gore, who didn’t go quite so far as to claim…

Marketing campaigns live and die by data. One of the recent campaigns I was managing drove me to open up my analytics report every hour. (Holiday season, anyone?) Data can be numbing, but it’s also necessary. Without data, there’s no way to easily determine the health of a campaign. As a marketer, the more data you have at your disposal, and the easier it is to manage data, the easier your job is. Unfortunately, the more tracking and optimization tags you add to the site, the more you have to deal with code bloat. That’s why I want to introduce…

Before you can set out to be successful at local SEO, you need to know where you are. That means you need to audit your local SEO, onsite and off, and check that…
