The idea of a website being an informational Fort Knox came to mind yesterday when I was looking at the website Weather Underground, decided if, and where on my website I would put a piece of code to display my local weather. But for myself... Too many landscapers underestimate the usefulness of a website, as an informational storehouse. It's not neccessarily a Fort Knox from a security standpoint, but from a wealth of information standpoint. And the wealth is what's valuable to you. Myself, I do what many of you might do, I list my services and a few images. Documents can be uploaded to the server, of several types: 1. Resume 2. Design Questionnaire 3. Flyer download How about that weather banner idea. Right now, I don't do lawns, but if I had crews in several suburbs, I can guarantee you I'd place the banner codes for about 5 weather stations in that area. That way I could monitor if snow was falling, if it became too hot to apply herbicides, or if it was too cold for frost to have left the lawns, leaving the potential for black footprints. If you don't want stuff like that to look clutered, all you have to do is make a special page for it. Then, you can place a hyperlink for it in a subtle place, like just a single period or comma of our home page text. Just click on the period that nobody else will notice, and you weather utility page pops up. You can see all your local weather on one page. 1 banner, 6 banners, even a dozen if you want. This period just below, is a link to my photo albums page... see it below... . Discreet, isn't it - even more so when a smaller font and lumped in with paragraphs. Here it is even smaller... . Any brochure or information you think your customers will need for something you installed, can be placed on your website as a document or as an information page...

You can also use your website as a backup for your important photos and documents, in the same way your laptop is an important backup for your website. Aside from you files, your website can become your Fort Knox of valuable information.
