I co-authored a book about better websites.

Create a Website that Converts

Available now on Kindle!

(People say it is pretty good.)

In 2010, I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Kelly Erickson, owner of VisionPoints, a company that specializes in creating great Customer Experience through strategic, integrated interior and graphic design.

Our skills turned out to be a match made in heaven, and in 2011, we co-authored the book Create a Website that Converts.

(It’s currently only available for Kindle – or Kindle apps on your computer, table, or mobile phone.)

Inside this book, Kelly and I talk about our hard-learned lessons on the best practices for web design. Our goal was to provide you with the information you need to remove any and all confusion from your visitors, transforming your website into a thriving marketing tool.

Most books on the market are full of complex, generic theories – we tossed all that out the window and wrote for real people we both know, who want to put real advice to use right away.

“I’ve learned through experience to trust Andy and Kelly’s professional advice in small business and marketing.

This latest book is exactly like I expect: direct, full of good advice, and enjoyable to read. They have me switching back and forth from this book to my own websites, to see where I can put this advice to work immediately.”

“Wow! Now I feel like I can actually attack Panorama Motel website issues myself.

For mom and pop business owners like my wife and I, who had someone else put our website together, it is great to have this guide to hold our hands and give us confidence, with step-by-step procedures, to think about reorganizing and rewriting parts of it to work better for us.”
