Web Design Mistakes: A #CMWorld Chat with Andy Crestodina

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 7.26.09 AM

Anyone who is managing a website wants to get the best results, but what you need to do is not always obvious. Dates or no dates on blog posts? Should you embed videos? Include PDFs? We hit some hot buttons with some of our chat participants and had a great and lively debate.

One of our go-to website experts (and a Content Marketing World favorite), Andy Crestodina, joined us for our latest #CMWorld Twitter chat about website design do and don’ts. Andy, co-founder of Orbit Media, was also named Content Marketing World 2015’s top-rated speaker, so we were thrilled when he said “yes” to our request to join us on our chat.

Should dates be included on blog posts? This one stirred up some strong feelings on both sides:

PDF or HTML? Another topic with conflicting opinions. Which side are you on?

This just scratches the surface on what we covered on today’s chat. For a complete transcript, check out this Hashtracking report. Let us know if you find this useful!

Thanks, Andy, for always providing us with such useful – and immediately applicable – information! We’re always a little smarter after a conversation with you, and this chat certainly made us all think!
