Some of the most poorly designed websites today are arguably the most successful ones. A great case study is DrudgeReport.com. The news site is virtually featureless, but its viewership outperforms the New York Times. Matt Drudge’s passion is relevant, unadulterated news. By his devotion to it he has attracted a loyal following of like-minded readers.
He is the greatest whose strength carries up the most hearts by the attraction of his own.Henry Ward Beecher
A survey done in April 2012 by Netcraft received responses from 676,919,707 websites. It can be safely assumed there are double the amount of active websites in 2012 than the previous year. In the midst of a tsunami of new information being introduced to the web each day, a remarkable paradigm shift has occurred in web development. It’s called social media.
A conversation is a dialogue, not a monologue. That's why there are so few good conversations: due to scarcity, two intelligent talkers seldom meet.Truman Capote
When someone is motivated by an ideal, their loyalty is attached to the person who represents it. That’s the conversion.
In conversion you are not attached primarily to an order, nor to an institution, nor a movement, nor a set of beliefs, nor a code of action - you are attached primarily to a Person, and secondarily to these other things.E. Stanley Jones
