If you built a webpage, then you’ve built a webpage. You are completely invisible unless you make your visible. There is a ton of internet noise out there and it’s your job to stand out from the crowd.

This is Richard N. Stephenson at sidewages.com.

[The following is a transcript of the introduction video.]

Now I am going to cover some of the myths of a website and why it’s needed and all of that jizz-jazz. I will be doing these as vlogs and then leveraging it out into all kinds of different things.

So if I blank out, it’s probably because I am trying to be safe. But all of this is setup nicely so I don’t have to touch it. And I’ve done it before and it works out pretty nicely. Don’t try this at home kids unless you’re a trained professional or something like that.

I’m probably going to split this up over 10 different videos for whatever purpose so I will use this next part as the general intro.

Here are the Top 10 Myths of Having a Website in a Business, brought to you by sidewages.com and Richard Stephenson.

Okay, here we go:

MYTH # 1: IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME
MYTH # 2: A WEBSITE IS ONLY A BUSINESS TOOL
MYTH # 3: DESIGN IS EVERYTHING
MYTH # 4: MORE VISITS = MORE SALES
MYTH # 5: WEBSITES ONLY NEED IMAGES & TEXT
MYTH # 6: JUST COPY YOUR COMPETITORS
MYTH # 7: WEBSITES SELL THEMSELVES
MYTH # 8: WEBSITES CAN’T TRACK SALES DATA
MYTH # 9: NEWSLETTERS ARE JUST A FORMALITY
MYTH #10: WEBSITES NEED TO BE PERFECT

Photo for thought – Spring Brings New Beginnings

Have you noticed spring yet where you live? We’ve noticed it here – trees breaking out in fragile blossom, daffodils nodding under the weight of their heavy yellow heads, a diffident hint of warmth in the air and that indistinct, refreshing spring scent. With spring, the slow, tired cycle of winter is broken and a shaft of light breaks into our daily routine. We see all around us in nature the beauty of new starts and new life. Spring, to many, represents a time of hope and renewal.

But there are countless people around the world who do not have the same hope in bright futures. Watching Comic Relief’s Red Nose Day highlighted to us not only the great needs of the world but also a sense of the disconnection in many minds between life-destroying poverty and direct ways of affecting change. Red Nose Day will come around again next year – but every single day of every single year, there are numerous ways that you can make a difference, many of them small and simple. Here are just three things you can do:

You can donate money to contribute to crisis aid
Oxfam

You can buy fairtrade products, to make sure that the people who farmed, harvested or manufactured them were paid a living wage and are empowered to improve their own lives and communities
Fairtrade Foundation

You can campaign to battle injustices in the world. Here is one way to keep yourself informed and active
