I’m pleased to share our new blog design with you today.
A few months ago, after neglecting our website design for several years, we concluded that we finally had to pay it some attention (!)
I’d like to share how we approached our own blog and website redesign. I’d also like to share our new approach to website redesign, called Evolutionary Site Redesign (ESR). I believe it represents the future of website design for companies that care about results.

It’s a relatively new way of designing sites to detect a visitor’s browser size and customize the page display to match.

More surprising data on Facebook: Older generations join social networks (what does this means for your conversion optimization efforts?)
I have to admit that I joined Facebook many years ago not so much because I was interested in participating in a social network overpopulated by teens, but primarily as a way of stalking my own kids.
