    Update:

    Business cards arrived. Pretty happy with them, but the font is a bit small so I've fixed that for the next order but they'll do for now.

    50% of the content done for my web site. I've decided to take a different approach with the web site.

    Most companies go for the same old "corporate image" type site that doesn't really aim to sell at ALL. Most business sites tend to just be clones of some standard business template. Portfolio, about us and other crap filler text that looks "clean and professional", but doesn't do a damn thing to sell.

    I'm not going to do that.

    I've gone for a nice clean responsive 1 page template. The sections in the topbar menu will just take the user down the page. This kind of site is used often for software as a service type businesses and it's very clean. It just takes people through a sales process.

    I start off by explaining in a very heavy copywriting style why they need a mobile site. Very conversational and very personal with some images for emphasis. I then explain how simple the process is for them and what's involved then I have my pricing table followed by how to contact us.

    I don't expect to get many clients through the web, but people will visit my site after calls/in person sales and the heavy copywriting style sales on the site will help to close them, plus the site looks good and of course being responsive looks great on a mobile phone.

    There have been plenty of journeys that have gone well, but as businesses go, most fade away in their first years.

    Anyways, as I like to say, talk is cheap, so I'll be following this one.

    Best of luck.

    I've decided to put this on hold just now. I've had a great idea for some marketing software and I'm going to develop it and then create a BST here on bhw. I thought about delaying the software, but sometimes with these things you have to jump on them while they're hot. Mobile web design will be around for quite a few years to come.
