3 Reasons Why Web Design Is the Domain of Your Entire Company


Your website is the central hub of the digital presence of your company, yet many companies delegate web design to the marketing department, expecting a small, highly specialized group to present the collective capital of the company in a compelling and actionable way.

Resources for Women Who Want to Break Into Tech


Working in the male-dominated technology industry can be pretty lonely. But just because you’re an independent woman, it doesn’t mean you have to go it alone. More and more, women in technology are tapping into their communities to get projects off the ground.

This is just one example of how women connect, collaborate and succeed in tech.

But not all of us have a successful website… i.e. people come to your website and then they click off it without doing any of the things you want them to do (when I say ‘people’, I basically mean every single person that lands on your site!). Arghhh so annoying!

There are obviously lots of reasons for this, including the fact that maybe some people may land on your site by accident and aren’t remotely interested in what you have to offer, and that’s totally fine.

But there are simple things we can do to turn our website into a raving success, by getting visitors to take the action that we want them to take.
