(This article was originally published in the MarketingExperiments email newsletter.)
Before you begin a web design project, here are three crucial questions to ask :
- Is your website a disorganized set of voices (modules) talking at the same time, or does it have a linear flow?
- Do your pages have a different personality from the primary driver of your company’s success, or are they contributing toward that distinct personality?
- Is your website speaking AT your customers or TO your customers?
In this replay of a live, interactive session, Flint McGlaughlin focuses on three more of the 21 design elements of an effective webpage: flow, personality, connection. (If you missed part 1 of the series, you can watch it here.)
You can follow along by downloading a PDF copy (in two sizes) of the infographic that he uses in the video:

“The 11×17 version of the page is perfect for my portrait monitor.”
”I think giving us two sizes was a brilliant way to do this. Thanks.”
“Marketing experiments is my secret gem and I don’t want my competition to know about you guys!”

Interesting insights – thanks for sharing. Will have to implement this on some level and relay the results. Cheers guys!
I love this website!
Hi Linda, I remember hiring someone to design a website for me. Because I didn’t know anything in 2012, I ended up agreeing because I didn’t have enough money to hire a professional.
Thanks for this blog. Very interesting to read.
