What makes a great website?
Web sites should:
Provide credible, original content in as many forms as possible
Original content is the most important trait of a great Web site. Sites that provide only links to other sites are essentially meta-lists (although Yahoo seems to be doing well :), while sites that have some information that's useful to the user stand out and will be revisited. A recent check of webreference.com's statistics confirms this, our content providers account for 62% of WebReference.com's total impressions. Content is King.
Provide valuable, timely information to the user, not lots of data.
Web sites should be updated regularly. Stale Web sites say "been there, done that." For the information to be valuable it should be well-edited. For external links include only the best sites with concise descriptions. For internal content be like a magazine editor, don't rush to publish mediocre or incomplete articles. Typos are unacceptible. [sic]
Original Content is the most important trait of a great Web site.
Share everything you learn
Great Web sites share everything they learn and hear (that's relevant of course) with their users. Give behind the scenes accounts of your latest site features, go open source, start a newsletter, and you'll get more than you give.

What do you love most about your job?
Being a web designer is hard work, and at many times during the process the slate in front of you will feel perpetually blank. Designers are keenly familiar with blank slates and endless possibilities.
So, take some of that brilliance that helps you transform nothing into something and use it to build your own life design. Like a website, a life needs to be an enjoyable, enriching, interesting experience. When you’re planning your future, you are designing a website inhabited by one person: you.
You know your challenges, desires and strengths better than anyone else, and this makes you uniquely qualified to chart your career path. The profession of web designer will become more and more prestigious as time goes on, so knowing where you’re going and how you plan to get there is imperative.
What inspired you to start your own business?
I had been employed for few years till one day I realized that the only thing I was doing was actually building others' dreams. I had a steady fixed income each month, that's great when you start a career, but I'm a dreamer and a visionary myself and I always knew I was destined for something great. I halted for a second to understand how the world works and it was time for reversing the equation. In the Real World you either be an entrepreneur, or you work for one. On that day I decided to wear multiple of hats till I let the world build my own dream.
My secrete recipe of success: All what I need is discipline, keep daydreaming, thinking outside the box and reading between the lines. I'm not smarter than the rest of the world, but I put much effort everyday to become a better version of myself yesterday. But for every success there is a price, you need to sacrifice something. I did.
Why should our clients choose you?
Do what you would tell your clients to do and find something that differentiates your agency, whether that is focusing on a vertical market, a tone of voice, proof that your work delivers results (backed up with a process to get those facts from your clients) or a guarantee.
This will take time, and it means you have to stop working in your business and start working on your business. During that time, you won’t be generating revenue. However, when you reveal the new you, all the effort will have been worth it because you will stand out and stand for something. That way, as a potential client, I now have a choice. The flavor you sell or another’s.
If you get your message right, there will be plenty of businesses after what you offer. On top of that, they will be clients who respect what you say and do. You will be stronger and deliver even better results. You may even be able to charge more because you offer something different.
And, if you don’t do it? Well, you’d better get used to toast and jam!
