    Strategic Design Decisions for your Website

    Strategic Design Decisions for your Website

    New tools for WordPress, like Kadence, are making it increasingly easy for anyone to build more effective websites without ever touching a line of code. And yet, it's still critical to make strategic design decisions towards a goal of engaging your audience rather than driving them away. It's easy to take an effective strategy and apply it in ways that don't work well. We look at a few examples that don't work while also providing some key examples that work spectacularly. When do you use a slider? How can you best use animation? What about popups? This is an episode about key strategies that help your website make meaningful impacts in building your brand online. And, of course, we also take a look at new features in Kadence, the Kadence Marketplace, the upcoming Kadence Amplify event, and more.

LAXMom ,

Keep up the great work!!

I just bought a Restored 316 Kadence theme and can’t thank you enough for starting this podcast! I love hearing directly from you guys as opposed to reading and posting to a facebook group. Looking forward to learning more so I am as self reliant as I can be in supporting and maximizing my website.

Good stuff!

I discovered this podcast just in time as I’m migrating some of my WordPress sites to Kadence. I’m excited to learn new things of the Kadence ecosystem.

I think it’s a cool idea to have a podcast specific to Kadence because it is so feature-rich and has tons of great plugins.
