Doing your website, the right way and the wrong way. It’s silly to do that but not really. This is a talk about how to do a website these days. I wanted to show you what our website was for our engineering business back in the 1990s. I had to create it myself and it was HTML using Frontpage.
Let’s have a look.
I used the waybackmachine.com to see if they could find one of my previous websites. If you don’t know about the waybackmachine, it is at waybackmachine.com.

Back in the 90’s I created a website for our business so people could find. The picture is gone now. I had a brief overview of what the business we do. Then a link to go to resumes, activities and office in 1998 completed by me.
That was an okay website. A lot of businesses didn’t have website presence on the internet as you had to use Frontpage software with HTML and a designer.
I learned HTML and created the website as we were international at the time.
Today, we have a nice, cleaner website. We still have the same information but it is all linked easily through hyperlinks with some nice photos on it. Very simple.
Then below there is contact information, phone and email. We put all our information on here using the basic WordPress theme 22. All you do is enter the information in the backend. It makes it look pretty using the them.
Basically there is a right way and wrong way to make a website.
1. Not using the current themes. 🙂
2. Hard to find the “Contact Us”.
My website now for my personal business is much cleaner, easier to navigate, mobile responsive, video on it which is engaging. Easy to find the sidebar with all my courses and links to go to my courses. Some of my articles from Medium.com are on the sidebar. You can comment on the video in real time through Google+. There is a right way and wrong way to do a website.
The wrong way is not to make your website interactive.
