I’ve started working on a new King Design web site that will actually have a little content on it. I originally indended to have one page summaries for all my professional offerings, however I started thinking that more of a break between personal and professional sites might be a good move. As such, I’ve been considering moving my Tasks software (including the free trials, store, etc.) over there.
The benefit to doing this would be that I get the business stuff more organized and in one place. This would also make it a little easier to decide what URL to put on my business cards when I finally get them printed up. 🙂
Of course, there drawbacks to moving Tasks to kingdesign.net. alexking.org gets a nice amount of traffic which helps more people see the software and I’ve already got lots of nice incoming links and pagerank here. Also: would I move all of the software? Or just the commercial stuff? If I do move things, where should I draw the line?
Just to complicate things further, Tasks Pro™ and Use Tasks have their own sites already, so for those offerings I will probably only have brief summaries on the King Design site.
Maybe I’m too close to the situation and one of you has a perfect solution for me?
Maybe you should think of King Design as a portfolio of sorts. Anything that you would want people to see when they think of you in professional terms should probably be there. That includes the free stuff I’d think. That doesn’t mean that you couldn’t still link to and talk about all that stuff from here though. I’ve been having similar thoughts myself so this is just me thinking out loud.
Yeah, this is a tough one. I go back and forth on the decision with my web site as well. I think having more of a separation is good from the end-user standpoint. Take a look at Steven Frank of Panic. He has a personal web site at: http://stevenf.com/mt/ but his company is located at: http://panic.com
