With the web design industry inundated with people designing websites with all types of software including Wix, Weebly, WordPress, Drupal, and Dreamweaver, it is no wonder that there are thousands of people designing websites. The question is how well are those people really designing them? There are an average of 700 new websites launching every single day. Most of the websites on the internet are not effectively converting visitors and are losing money for their owners since they are not designed correctly or effectively.
Bruce Chamoff of Hot Web Ideas, Inc. became the first web design coach in the world and is coaching webmasters and business owners with advice on creating websites that actually convert visitors into customers and repeat visitors. He also coaches them on website speed and performance issues which can ruin search engine rankings and the user experience. Bruce uses his 22-year website design experience working on websites including National Enquirer, Radio City Rockettes, and websites from small and medium-sized businesses to mentor new web designers as well as business on improving their current website to help increase sales.
