Web Design for ROI: Turning Browsers into Buyers & Prospects into LeadsSo yesterday I’ve received a book called “Web Design for ROI: Turning Browsers into Buyers & Prospects into Leads” and just finished reading it. No, I usually don’t finish books in a few days :-) There were a plenty of interesting points. Since I’m a web designer myself (and most of the FavBrowser.com visitors owns web sites as well), thought I’ll let you know about it too. Also, there was one funny phrase (not the only one) which I’d like to quote. It tells a bit about web designers and what they experience sometimes.

Sure, I can make the box blue instead of red. Of course that will ruin the design integrity of the web page, so I’ll have to redesign the whole thing. But now that I know you only care about the box being blue, I can probably do whatever I want with the rest of the page and you’ll never notice.

What about you? Have you recently finished reading any interesting books (no, not novels :-))?

By the way, we’ve just hit 100 categories mark.
