Creating a 10 Year Strong Website with Kanopi (#49)

We really believe in creating strong websites and making them last for 10 years (or possibly more). Throwing out your website and rebuilding every two to three years is really just a myth. It’s like a house. Every so often, little updates and tweaks can be made to keep things looking fresh and sharp.”  Anne Stefanyk

Anne Stefanyk is the CEO and founder of Kanopi Studios which she started in 2013. The company is totally remote and works at creating strong websites for clients who are looking to make a positive impact on the world.

Anne goes over the anatomy of what makes an effective website and her philosophy about making one that lasts (you need to keep working on it!).

She also walks through some of the awesome apps that her team uses to maintain a positive digital work environment and overcome Zoom fatigue.
