Paul Squirrell's curator insight, February 5, 2014 3:27 AM

I came across this and thought it worth posting.  It's very easy to forget about 'traditional' forms of promotion in a facebooked / LinkedIn world but, sometimes a simple flyer or cold call to a prospect does the trick - especially if you're a niche or small business.  Lets not neglect the old for the new if the old still works.

Joanne Brooks's curator insight, November 16, 2013 10:17 PM
Today most startups are trying to ressegment existing markets or create new markets. How do you diagram that? What if the basis of competition in market creation is really the intersection of multiple existing markets? Or what if the markets may not exist and you are creating one? Today it's all about being visual.

Een website index lijst is te vergelijken met de index in een boek en of handleiding. Net als in de papieren index zijn er verwijzingen naar informatie. De website index lijst is op een aantal manier anders dan de papieren index lijst. De website index lijst staat niet achterin maar meestal op de zoekpagina. En bezoeker krijgt hier door gelijk de mogelijkheid  te zoeken naar de gewenste informatie.

Waarom een website index lijst?
