Website Owners: 3 Essential Characteristics

Over the years I have at a masterful conclusion, I want to share with you. I think it will help you build a better website and improve your online marketing too. With this information you can better prepare yourself for the work ahead to be a leader in your community of online businesses. When people visit your site they will remember it, they may even bookmark it to return later for more information.

One distinction, when I refer to when I say website owner. That term is pointing to the person creating the website. As an example, I work with many business owners to build their websites and do their online marketing. In reality, I am the website owner. Yes, the business owners own the content and media i create. But, it's my reputation on the line for the presentation ,functionality, and marketing that the website site incurs.

This article is about the three most essential, the foundation qualities of a successful website owner. The landscape for website technology has shifted ins the last five years, I expect that cage will continue. The three very essential qualities are nerd, innovator, and artist.

Does that seem plausible to you?

We look forward to speaking with you about your website project.

Too much of one quality will lock down the other quality. For example, too much nerd will reduce the artist to ashes and the site may be a techno wonderland but absolutely boring to website users.

Or, how about this scenario. Innovation is important, but without the nerd skills to think through the functions of a website site, there is stagnation in marketing. For example, the website is using the latest and created techniques but not producing organic displays in the search engine results.

One more to consider without the vision of an artist, in terms of color and layout, your site is techno correct and using the latest techniques, yet your website users find it the content so boring your analytics show an extremely high bounce rate.

INNOVATION

”Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.”
~ Einstein

As an innovator you know what you are good at and what you don’t do well. Included in that vault is knowing that you can always hire someone to do what you don’t feel up to accomplishing. A vision of the end result is the starting point.

Website owners with no technical experience can use a platform like Amazon, Facebook, Shopify, or square space to build their website. Yes, those are examples of renting your website instead of owning it.

Nonetheless, it’s important to get your website going and using a platform in one way of assuring techno success.

When you combine your innovation with learn gin or expanding your techno skills you have the perfect opportunity to build robust website solutions.

Combining those two with artistic ability is a website owner with a vision driving the techno side and the design. I believe this is the optimal pattern or method of creating websites.

Let's be clear about one, very important, fundamental elements required of success in the website ownership business. Energy. Building and caring for and sustain a business website takes a load of attention in terms of time and doingness. All innovators have the capacity for this drive and stamina.

Our expertise will reduce your learning curve in your website design project for mobile devices.

NERD

You already know that a nerd can be a shy or reclusive, but very intelligent. Website technology is continually comprehensive since it's constantly evolving, to say on top of it, you must be experimenting and using new strategies with both whatever website platform being used and also in methods to accomplish online marketing.

There are clearly techno procedures to online marketing, but there is an equal part that is content writing. For example, how to use an RSS feed to distribute your content to dozens of location take an assortment of skills, such as, building the RSS feed, knowing RSS readers, and staying in compliance with certain site requirements.

On the other hand, what good does it, achieve when the content being distributed in that RSS system in not engaging your website visitors? Bingo, it takes artistic ability to write content that readers will attract readers and engage them.

The nerd quality and the artistic quality of website owner success are closely linked. Too nerd and boredom is aroused in website visitors. Same with artistic ability. Too much pretty and there may now be enough functioning properties of the content to satisfy the curiosity of a website visitor.

This is my list of 7 basic nerd skills every website owner must have:

  • Understands the mechanics of website technology for the project at hand, including how to automate business cycles on a website.
  • A proven ability to perform research to find resources on techno topics

ARTIST

There is such a stereotype of artists that it was difficult for me to recognize this ability in myself for a long time. But, as time goes by, and the more websites you look over, it’s easy to see that some websites have a natural content flow and/or more eye appeal than other sites.

The artistic skills are varied. From writing good content, to designing images that work well in content, to putting graphic images together, and including having the tools to perform tasks like color matching and design color palettes.
