Jeremy Palmers Black Ink Project: Review of Day 13

In this series, I will be reporting on my participation in Jeremy Palmers Black Ink Project webinar training course.

Sign up at http://www.theblackinkproject.com for all of the slides, recordings and other visuals.
This session was a great reminder that we need to look at our favorite sites and pay attention to why we like them. Then, we should incorporate these elements into our Black Ink Project sites.
It’s really very basic: anything we can add to our sites that makes visitors feel like they matter or belong will improve the site experience for them and the bottom line for us.
My Top Take-Away
All of the tools necessary to make our sites stickier are available for free. Whether it is online community software(PHPBB), blogging and content management software(WordPress,Drupal) or user generated content scripts(HotScripts,Disqus), all of them are free and the industry standard for their respective categories.
Tomorrow’s Topic: List Building And E-Mail Marketing
