No Money, No Matter

As we begin to feel the fallout of the econmic crisis and some organisations cut funding for their websites, how can we be more effective in the way we work.

The estimated time to read this article is 2 minutes

Once again I spoke at IWMW this year and as the whole conference was on ‘The Web in Turbulent Times’ I thought I would address how to achieve more on our websites with less money.

Originally this talk was going to be based on my post ‘5 Options When Website Budgets Get Slashed‘. However, as I prepared the focus shifted to something more upbeat.

As I prepared I honestly became excited about the possibilities of having less money to spend gave! It provided a valuable opportunity to slim down bloated websites, to start thinking strategically and to engage with web design agencies in a new way.

Anyway I hope you enjoy…

Update: Apologises for the poor audio 4 minutes in. It only lasts a couple of minutes.
