You’re one in a (400) million
There are about two billion websites in the world but fewer than 400 million are actually active and doing stuff. What are you doing with yours? Do you even have one? Does Google like it? Do you like it?
What your website is telling the world
The world is changing—that’s no surprise—and if you think back to Thomas Watson’s famous prediction from 1943 a lot has changed: “I think there is a world market for maybe five computers.” T. Watson, CEO IBM (1943).
But then again a lot stays the same—people will always hunger for information they can trust before making decisions. They will do research. They will ask family and friends for advice. And they will pay attention to the details.
So what makes a good website? Ensuring your customers can find the information they’re looking for (and maybe stuff they didn’t know they needed know), creating trust that you are the best choice, and connecting them with you to make a sale.
