Accidental web designers find themselves in charge of websites with little or no training in how to manage them. In this video, learn you're not alone in this situation, and participate in our weekly discussion.
- You are the silent majority of people working on the web today. Your job is content strategist, administrative assist, social media specialist. Maybe you're a web coordinator, a web maintainer, or a webmaster. Or perhaps you're a journalist, a writer, a blogger, or an influencer. There's dozens of other possible titles, but any way you slice it, you are in charge of a website somewhere. You didn't go to school for it, you haven't trained for it. One day, in some way, a website or several dropped into your lap. Maybe you were the technical one at your company. Maybe you volunteered. Maybe it's your business or a side hustle or a hobby. And so you came to the web by accident needing to design or maintain a website. Most of the people working on the web today are like you, accidental web designers. The web isn't your life. You don't think about it every day. You just need to post this press release, update that link, or make some other minor change and get on with everything else that's going on around you. You might not have thought about reaching out for help or comparing notes with someone else who might be doing the same kind of things you are. You probably worry whether you're doing things the right way a lot. I'm here to help you guide you with lots of tips and tricks I've picked up along the way in 19 years of working on the web. I promise not to be overly geeky or technical. And I promise to keep the videos focused on tips you can use in your work today. Have a question for me? I'd love to hear it. Ask in our LinkedIn group. Maybe I'll turn your question into another video. Be sure to come back and visit each week for the latest installment.
