Anything I can do, you can do better!

What I Learned About Websites from Keith Klein with On Your Mark, LLC.

Over the years I’ve learned many things when it comes to websites, social media, and blogging. I may not practice everything I know because, up until recently, I’ve been doing the bare minimum on everything.

The main reason why I’m writing this post specifically is to use as a basic resource guide to send people to when they ask me about websites. Before I continue, you should know I’m not a professional web developer and I don’t do this on my own anymore.

After crashing a website weeks before an event I hired Keith Klein with On Your Mark, LLC. to save me. Since the Fall of 2016 I’ve been working with him on numerous websites.

The learnings gained over the years from trial-and-error along with having countless of conversations with Keith. This is to serve as a brief checklist overview of what kickass websites should entail.
