It’s far from secret that with a website, your business has an international reach virtually overnight. This creates an entirely new host of issues. There’s the language barrier, but anyone landing on your site can sort out for themselves whether or not they can read the material on your site. It’s up to them to utilize a readily available translator if they want to avail themselves of your products or services. But beyond language barriers, there are other issues.
Websites need to be updated frequently to maximize their usefulness. Whether that involves creating new and informative posts telling one’s readership the latest goings on, or involves adding sale prices to a retail website, updating is key. Most websites that receive little attention from their owners also receive little attention from others. As the entire purpose of a website is to create a buzz and excitement level akin to that found when people are playing online casino games, it’s vital to keep the updates happening.
Whether you’re traveling internationally or down to the local café, Internet service is widely available. Some airports offer free wifi for those between flights. Grabbing a coffee is no longer just about the beverage experience – it’s a chance to catch up on emails and, for the savvy, to drop by and update their website as necessary. Even just dropping a few Twitters to keep fans updated is an important step, as it helps to maintain touch with those who are interested in what your site offers. Traveling away from the office is a poor excuse for not doing updates in an age where connectivity is king. Elvis used to connect with his audience the old fashioned way, by singing and dancing. It seems likely that he’d be a prolific website updater if he were alive in the current era. Do what you can to emulate those who have been successful.
