“When I first started my web design business, my sales pitch to small and mid-sized companies sounded something like ‘There’s this really cool thing called the Internet. You should go check out what’s going on there. It’s going to be the next wave of marketing your business.’ That was back in 1996. Now businesses see a web presence as a necessity. I don’t have to sell people on the concept anymore. But, I still need to sell them on my company’s capabilities.” – Cindy Penchina, web design professor, Pace University, New York (Cindy is one of the web designers and web design experts who give advice in this guide)
