~~~WHAT EVERY WEB SITE NEEDS ~~~
1 – Detailed About Us Page
You don't want this on your home page – that is where
the benefits that you offer to your visitors should go. It
is important to write about your company's background,
when it started, how to contact you, and maybe even
names and pictures of the people in your organization.
Any type of transaction is about trust, and visitors really
want to know as much about you even before they
connect with you.
2 – Professional writing
Use clear language. Make sure your writing is plain
and easy to understand. If you use abbreviations, make
sure to explain what they mean. If you’ve ever visited a
web site that included lots of jargon and slang within its
text and that left it unexplained, you know just how
annoying this can be. Trust me, people won’t think you
are “cool” if the headline on your home page reads
3 - Beware of broken links
As your site changes over time, and as the sites to which
you link change, broken links can creep in. Your visitor
clicks on a link, anxiously awaits more, and instead gets
an error message. They are heart broken. Use
the “broken link” report that is built into Web Builder
Express to verify that you don’t have any broken links.

We heard a joke the other day that we thought we'd share.
AGING WIFE IN BED TO HER HUSBAND ONE NIGHT:
I remember when we first got married. You used to
whisper sweet nothings in my ear all of the time.
AGING HUSBAND MUMBLES: "I love you,Snickerdoodle."
AGING WIFE: I remember when you used to rub my shoulders
to help me fall asleep.
AGING HUSBAND GRUMBLES: Roll on your
stomach and I'll rub your shoulders.
AGING WIFE: I remember when you used to bite my neck.
AGING HUSBAND, FRUSTRATED, GETS OUT OF BED.
AGING WIFE: Where are you going?
AGING HUSBAND: To get my teeth!
