Episode 17 Takeaways:

Liz: Kelly’s example of her dog breeder client reveals a different side of and set of needs for website design updates that are rarely discussed. The moral of this story is to contact a web developer if your website isn’t working well for you in some way, even if business is good.

Ronda: Sometimes we need customers to do things for us along their journey, but at a specific time in the sales process (and not before).

Kelly: Plan, plan, plan…and then plan some more before beginning a website design and development project.
