New design and more content
conzepts.net edition 2.0 is air-born. I have worked the last couple of weeks to get both design and content up to day and matching the business I’m doing now, and have focus on in the future. True I haven’t updated the website as frequently as I should in 2012. The year started out in one direction with a large commitment to client. I actually didn’t think I would need this site anymore – but I keept it and am happy for that now.
In February I moved residence from Copenhagen to Amsterdam to adapt to my new work situation. I must say I love Amsterdam – but I miss people and my network in Denmark. End August, early September it became clear that the project dedicated almost my entire attention didn’t survive. If you want details please ask. This changed my situation drastically and I now had to focus on updating my website.
New product focus
Moving to Amsterdam is almost like starting up a new business. Almost no one knows me here, and that required a different communications strategy than beore. Part of the new web communication strategy is giving more detailed information and idea on specific products/services that is avaiable for you at concepts.net ie:
- 10n1 workshop Trouble Shooter
- Corporate Bullshit Index
- 10n1 workshop KITA …kick in the ass
- Rainbow People & Pink Dollars
The other part is much more detailed information on my personality and background. I find it very personal when a company work with external consultants – as important as if they would hire you. I want to show who I am, even though I still find it much more difficult to write about my business and myself than about any client.
Why do I do it myself with WordPress?
It is still very important for me, that the site is base on a content management system I can easily handle myself. The platform is still WordPress and I found a new template/theme on which offered a mobile/tablet friendly platform ensuring a okey presentation for this viewer segment. Great possibilities for a not web nerd to change colors, background, fonts and build pages with more than just text. New and existing photos together with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator has made it possible to put my personal touch on a standard template.
I know myself good enough to know if I always have to brief someone on the new things and changes I want on the website, then it’s never going to happen – because this is one of the things I like to do when I’m relaxing in the evening at home. Another argument behind the “do it yourself” solution is of course also financial – keeping an eye on costs – and there by showing other entrepreneurs and companies, that it is possible to achieve a reasonable professional level with very little investment besides your own time. When I can do it anyone can and I know it will be easy to hand it over to my future personal assistant (that is one of my dreams).
The title Version 2.0 underlines that this is a work in progress.
