Recently, Richie provided his expert opinion on ‘Website & Channel Content’ in our whitepaper How to Succeed at Digital Transformation in B2B eCommerce. He’s what Richie had to say:
“A website without content is like a car with no fuel — going nowhere fast! I’m not usually one for slogans, but there is a lot of truth in this one. Without content, your website is a shell. It might have form and structure in the shape of templates and a sitemap, but it has nothing on its shelves — no story, no message, no persuasion, no instruction, no details, no nothing.
Gearing the site towards achieving its online objectives calls for an understanding of your users — who are they, what are they here for, and how can we meet their needs? And at the heart of the answer to these concurrent questions is content — written, visual, graphical. Without it, you don’t have a website, you have a need — a need for some quality content”!
