More about Kurt
After a successful career in major market radio, Kurt co-founded Web Asylum, building & marketing websites for businesses in the western suburbs of Chicago. His business partner, Ron, who also had a successful career in radio, said in 1995, “The Internet is like radio was 70 years ago – it will evolve.” And it certainly did!
Kurt was the face of the business, attending chamber events and finding leads. Ron built the sites by hand. Kurt took an interest in the strategies used to build successful websites and strategy became a bigger part of his role in the company.
He would often say, there are 2 primary keys to developing a successful website: creating content that converts and driving qualified traffic to those offers.
Going back to his notion that the Internet would evolve, like radio had, proved to be true. Website content morphed from simple text on a page to graphics, audio, PDF downloads, and video.
Getting the right traffic to your website evolved too as Search Engine Optimization evolved and Google became dominant. There are now multiple paid advertising and social media options and strategies.
It soon became clear that successfully creating website content and getting qualified traffic to your offers, completely depended on understanding your Target Personas; their needs, their goals, their familiarity with the problem, and all of the options website marketers had at their disposal.
Which all lead to his advice on The Holy Trinity of Website Success.
