      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Came across and interview with Kim Krause Berg at Blizzard Marketing.

 

I enjoyed 6 Easy, but Powerful, Ways to Recharge Your Web Site’s Conversions which, in this case, is on a bed and breakfast webdesign & marketing site which I used in the mid 90's for my b&b. Coincidence. I came to Cre8 via Kim as I had hired her to check out my site's usability, back in 1997 or so.

 

There is some good advice here for improving your site. Allow me to quote a small portion of this interesting article:

Your website works for you because you made it for you and in all likelihood, whomever you hired to build it either built it per your specifications or tried to guide you on “best practices” and you refused to listen. Why?

 

Because you know what works for you. You already know where to go on your website to find the price for “purple handled thingabobs”. You know what you dislike and are convinced you have the better way. However, on the Internet, “better” takes on new meaning when you apply it to several million people from around the world. Do you really know how to sell to millions of people?

I think most of us lose a certain objectivity for our own sites. As Kim says - these 6 questions get you outside of your box.

 

Nice article Kim.

Hi Donna!

 

I'd love to read the article. Something appears not to be working with the link. It's taking me to a 'bad request' page. I hope you can fix it so I can read. Sounds really interesting.

Thanks Donna!

 

I had fun writing it, but more importantly, if it cheers up or inspires even one site owner, I'll be happy. :)

Kim,

That really was a wonderful article. Made sense every step of the way and really pared down the issues to the most important questions/goals.

 

Thanks for linking to that, Donna!
