If you are brand new to the world of web design, digital marketing, e-commerce, and the rest, all of the things you have to know and understand can become daunting quickly. Michigan designers will toss around terms like "responsive web design" and "SEO" and "bounce rates." You may not understand what all of that means just yet. Relax! You will soon enough.
What is the difference between a website or ecommerce site that garners tons of regular visitors and wins lots of awards, versus the one that languishes on page 11 of Google searches and rarely gets a visitor, let alone a sale?
Commercial Progression was a proud sponsor of the 2015 DrupalCamp Michigan. With over 100 in attendance, 11 formal presentations, and 1 excellent after party... the survey results are in and the community agreed that this was the best DrupalCamp Michigan to date. In addition to our general sponsorship, the Commercial Progresssion team represented well with 3 presentations covering all Drupal skill levels. This year's media package also included a complete video capture of each session, which you can find on our youtube channel.
Late last year I got an interesting email. It was an invitation to speak at the online precursor to the American Library Association's midwinter conference, predicated on my status as the first person to implement responsive design for a library website. This wasn't something I had really thought about, but I suppose it's true.
Anyhow, I thought it would be nice to share the slides and speaker notes from this presentation, in case anyone would like to reuse my drawings or find additional information about the topics I presented.

There are two types of people who design websites. The first, who I'll refer to as Type 1, is someone who's less experienced or not fully focused on web design and lets technical issues or the constraints of an off-the-shelf template dictate the end web site product. The second, called Type 2, is someone who figures out what the site must do to be relevant and meet business goals and then designs the site so it does exactly that.
