Editors Letter - June 2013
The Pursuit of Digital Quality
Quality is a difficult concept to pin down, as it is defined in so many
different ways and in so many different circumstances.
Of course, there’s a general understanding of what it means — most commonly, it is simply a “general excellence of standard.” That’s an acceptable definition, but it’s not enough if you work in the digital trenches every day. Rarely is “quality” something that anyone can point to (definitively at least) and say, “that’s it, that’s quality.” And the “quality” issue only gets more complicated when we move deeper into the Web.
Internet professionals must make many considerations in relation to the quality of their websites and broader digital efforts — the visual, the promotional and the technical.
Quality isn’t easy to obtain, but as Website Magazine readers will discover in this month’s feature by Managing Editor Amberly Dressler, there are many methods that can be used to get Internet professionals and their digital businesses one step closer to the standard of excellence their customers and businesses deserve.
