From The Editor: Inside the Online World (August 2009)
Software impacts our lives both personally and professionally
in many ways. Aiding in virtually everything we do
today, from organization and productivity to presentation of
sites and content and the promotion of ourselves and our
Internet enterprises, there is not one moment during the
time you spend on the Web where software does not in
someway influence your day-to-day online activity. For this
reason Website Magazine’s August edition focuses on putting
the pieces of the essential software puzzle together.
We’ve taken a careful look at what type of software is important
to Web professionals and noted the characteristics essential to each
solution — from content management and weblog platforms to analytics,
CRM, e-commerce and beyond. You’ll find the feature article
provides valuable insights into why one provider might just be better
As you have come to expect, Website Magazine has assembled an exciting lineup of content and commentary from some of the leading minds in Internet business. This month’s content includes discussion on the merits of open-source content management systems from JT Smith of Plain Black, making widgets work from David Albert of Emerge Digital, and an insightful look at viral marketing from the always engaging Michelle Wicmandy. Website Magazine’s regular columns are also sections not to miss, including Bookshelf which reviews David Meerman Scott’s “World Wide Rave,” and the Website Magazine Top50 which identifies and ranks the top 50 alternative advertising networks that we expect to be a source of deep discussion and even debate. We’re also introducing an entirely new column — Heather Lutze’s Findability Makeover. The ‘Net Briefs section at the back of the magazine also contains some important reading material, including some helpful Internet marketing tips for newbies, advice on managing costs effectively and a whole lot more.
As we approach the fourth anniversary edition of this magazine, we thank our advertisers and contributors who have made our overwhelming success possible. Enjoy this edition and share your Web success stories online at www.websitemagazine.com.
Thanks and Best Web Wishes,
Peter Prestipino— Editor-in-Chief
