On the “will this ever end?” episode of the podcast, Jordan Cooper, Josh Spector, Chelcie Rice and Josh Homer discuss how to approach the design of your website and why what it actually looks like is the end result of determine its purpose to begin with.
Using Chelcie as a guinea pig, we break down the three most important things to include on your website, why a website is just a tool to accomplish a goal as a comedian, utilizing the most visible real estate for conversion elements, using benefit statements and calls to action to tell visitors what to do (a.k.a. making the ask), the difference between static and dynamic content and its implications on design, the power of social proof and the importance of owning your domain name and web hosting account.
In addition, we answer questions from Facebook and Twitter about starting, joining or soliciting podcast networks, when to retire a joke, whether bringer shows are good for comedy and why being easy to work with may be just as important as how talented you are as a comic.
