My son did it.

I took a good look at a website today that belongs to a new potential client. The client is a Fortune 500 company that does almost ten billion dollars in business annually.

The website looks like it was built by a student learning to use templates. Probably put together by an in-house IT department, it is quite amazing that there is so little recognition by the marketing department that the style, graphics, information architecture and presentation are so primitive.

Ironically, the propective client was NOT asking about our website development and website design services. Their “need” was to add video to the website, and youtube, and sell their services.

I wonder how much money they spend (waste) every month on PPC and traditional advertsing getting the right visitors to the wrong website presentation.

Just because someone CAN build a website…it doesn’t mean they should!
