WEO President's Letter: April 2017
I am thrilled to announce that WEO's website is in the final stages of a long-awaited update and refresh!
If you're reading this, you've probably already noticed that WEO's website looks different. Although it still worked, it was time for some updates, and you are looking at the results here.
So, WHY did the WEO Board decided to invest in updating this website? Glad you asked!
Reason #1: The primary purpose for the update is for the convenience of our members. Like most busy people these days, many WEO members want to access the site to register for meetings with their phones, and the old site made that difficult. It wasn't "mobile-friendly" and was difficult to use with a mobile device.
Reason #2: We want WEO to get found by women entrepreneurs looking for support, connecting, and business education. Mobile-friendly sites rank better in searches, and since many of our newest members found us online, we want to increase our visibility through better search engine optimization.
Reason #3: It was time to refresh the look, feel and functionality of the site. This site was put together over four years ago, and four years is a very long time in technology terms.
What do you think? Questions? Comments? Suggestions? I am looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you for supporting women in business--we're here for YOU! #WEORocks!
