The hardest part of making a successful website isn’t “making” it—you can hire someone to do the design and coding. The hardest part is writing great content that will attract readers and keep them coming back. Do the Web Write is a complete guide to writing (and running) a successful website. This is not a book on how to code your website, but a book on how to determine what pages you should have on your website and how best to write them. The book is written in plain English and covers many different types of websites, including blogs, corporate websites, social networking sites, and small business sites. Online technology will change each year, but what remains constant is that a website needs great content, written in an engaging and web-friendly manner, to make it a success. This book takes you step-by-step through every essential page you’ll need on your website and demonstrates how to write each page.
- Learn the fundamental elements of a successful website
- Format your website in an order that’s user friendly
- Write attention-getting blog posts
- Create helpful FAQ pages to generate more traffic
- Write press releases that get attention on the web
- Write successful “landing pages”
- And much more!

- It's So Good, I laughed and enjoyed reading about business.. and I don't have oneReview by Callista @ SMS Book Reviews
Price Value Quality
When I was sent this book I didn't think I would be able to get much use or enjoyment out of it as I don't have a business. My blog is like my business but I don't need customers to contact me about a service nor do I sell a product of my own. However I zipped through the book cover to cover and enjoyed every minute of it. Some of it I can use in regards to my blog but even the parts that I can not use, I enjoyed reading.
I LOVE Dan Furman's writing style. He is a copywriter which means he writes for other people's websites. It's no wonder he is succeeding at this, if I had the money, I'd have him help me write. With this book I can improve my writing and blog and if I ever do have my own business, I know what book I'll be turning to again.
Very helpful information I would recommend to ANYONE who has a business website. (Posted on 6/6/2010)
