Frequently Asked Questions
The most effective Web sites are designed around the information the user needs. If you are in the process of planning or revising your Web site, take the time to find out what the customer really wants. Interview folks in your marketing, sales and customer service departments. Ask them to list the most frequentlyasked questions they receive from customers via the telephone, on sales calls and via the press. You can then design your site into sections that hold information to answer those questions.

URLs...They're Everywhere
You see URLs on business cards, t.v. ads, signposts...but how about on shoes? Simple Shoes, a division of Deckers Outdoor Corp. that specializes in boots and clogs, has their url manufactured into the bottom of each shoe they make. Talk about leaving tracks.

Postcard Portfolio Web Marketing
A Web Site designer we know keeps prospects and clients informed of her growing portfolio of work by creating a postcard that announces each site she has created on the Web. The postcard cover always includes the URL and Home Page graphic of the site she has completed. The message on the postcard back encourages her clients and prospects to visit the site. This sends the message of her continual success to her client/prospect base and brings more visitors to the new Web site, which leads to more hits and business for the customer. Smart marketing.

Check out the Web-Cards site for printing your Web postcards fast and affordably.
