I’ve been lucky to work with a number of incredible people over the years, and one of the biggest wins is having our very own Gretchen Upright on the team! I’m so lucky to have her on this journey with me, and I’m so excited for her to join me on this episode as we go through FWM’s history, the history of websites on the Internet, and the Internet today.

We’ll also discuss some of the top questions we get about website design:

  • What are some common mistakes people make?

  • What is the difference between UX and UI?

  • If you had to narrow it down, what are the top three things people should focus on?

Learn the answers to these questions and much more on this special episode of World of Marketing!
