What Does It Cover?

What Are the Key Takeaways?
- Tip #1: If you can, hire a professional. If you can’t, take pictures yourself, but attend to details. Having some photos is better than having no photos. However, having no photos is better than having bad photos.
- Tip #2: Tell the story quickly (“Get deep quick.”). Respect people’s time. Be direct. Let them see more if they want to. Push more after building a relationship.
- Tip #3: Let the users drive. The beauty of the web is in its interactivity. Make an impact. No more brochure sites full of text.
