For those of you following my writing through an RSS feed of some sort, you may want to visit my site to see the brand new design. It launched last week.
It’s been four years since my design was last updated. I loved the old site, but I was getting tired of it. For a guy that likes change, four years is way too long to wait.
Along with the redesign, we added some new features. Here are my favorites:
- Simple Newsletter Sign Up — After you subscribe, we’ll send you the “easy button” to download a free eBook.
- Social Sharing Tools — They’re on the home page in addition to the pages for each article.
- Twitter Updates — They’re featured on the home page now.
- New Facebook Page — We’ve converted my personal profile to a public page so that you can “Like” the page and get updates.
- Consulting Services Infographic — If you’re a visual learner like me, the new infographic for consulting services will help explain what we do to help churches get unstuck.
- Leadership Unstuck — That’s just a tease. I can’t tell you about that yet or I’d have to kill you.
- Strategic Partners — My strategic partners are now featured on the site. (Thank you Launch Network, RSI Stewardship and Vanderbloemen Search Group!)
- Books & eBooks — All my books and eBooks including several free resources are conveniently listed in the resources section.
- Free Stuff! — I needed one place to provide free tools for church leaders. Watch for future updates to this toolbox.
- Popular Articles — Just consider it more free stuff. We’ve added a page and links in the footer to highlight the most popular articles on the site. Read them and then share them with a friend.
I could add other cool features, but then you wouldn’t have an excuse to roam around the site to discover them on your own.
Let me also take this opportunity to thank the team at PlainJoe Studios for tackling this project. They did all the design and development. I think they did a pretty spectacular job.
Check out their portfolio. You’re probably already familiar with some of PlainJoe’s other work on the World Wide Web. I highly recommend them if you need help with your web or social media strategy. (Tell them Tony sent you. They won’t give me anything, but they may design a multi-colored-flowing-ribbon-thingie for you too.)
So, what do you think? What’s your favorite feature? Share your thoughts by sharing your comment.
