Let’s help improve sites that suck! 11.15.11 0
by in Press Releases

We’ve seen it all too often: the government landing page that lacks user experience. The restaurant that has a three-minute Flash intro sequence before you can see its phone number. The music venue with its calendar buried three levels too deep. What is it that makes web sites SUCK? What can content strategists do to fix them?

We’ve been working hard to increase programming in the Content Strategy Philly meetup group, which we helped launch last year during Philly Tech Week. That’s why we’re excited to announce that along with co-organizers Monica Hays, Vanguard’s content strategist and Kelani Nichole, a freelance content strategist, we’re programming an upcoming event to discuss user experience and content problems on a handful of Philadelphia websites.

At the group’s next meetup on Tuesday, Nov. 29, at the Indy Hall coworking facility in Old City, we’ll work in breakout groups to give some therapy and solutions to these frightening sites. RSVP here.

We’re looking to the to you to nominate Sites that Suck. Tell us your least favorite local web site designs, looking to music venues, government sites, restaurants, museums, entertainment or other. We’ll choose the five best suggestions and break out into smaller groups to try and fix the user experience and content problems. We’ll end with short presentations.

This will be a great way to see how other content strategy experts work on-the-ground, share how you see content on the web, and work together to make results. Add your website suggestions here.

Early nominations from the meetup group members include: Philly.com, Phila.gov, South Philly Food co-op and RealWinWin.

Hope to see you there!
