Have you ever contributed to the Wikipedia? If so, you’ll probably be mentioned along with other 7.5 million contributors in the Wikipedia printed version (as it existed on April 7, 2015). What is more important you can find that very article of yours in one of 7,473 printed volumes of the English Wikipedia (yeah, “can”). Now try to guess where’s yours...
Long story short. These guys printed the Wikipedia. It consists of so many pages, that you can sit on it, you can hit all raptors from “Jurassic Part” with it. And on your phone it takes only a few megabytes. That is why electronic resources of reading are so convenient.
Now let’s put the contemporary art aside and move to the point: if you want a five-star website, we have 4 e-books for you. We all had to begin at some point, that’s why the author, Eli Davis (the bearded guy you can see at the end of each book), wrote his articles with a first-timer in mind. Download these e-books to your iPhone, read in the subway or while playing with your cat and get things done! Seriously, stop postponing your site to Monday, make it right cool now!
Every time you want to read an article on the Wikipedia, you end up with ten open unrelated links. This e-book is that first Wikipedia page you really need to read.
Well, there are tons of platforms you can choose for your website and that is… confusing. How do you actually find the one that fits you like a glove, if they all look the same for a beginner? Eli Davis suggests the universal system of features you can compare while choosing that right platform. He also gives the detailed comparison of the most popular CMS along with the first steps after you’ve chosen it. For instance, do you know that people leave around 400,000 comments on blogs every day?
Here’s my bold confessions: this e-book is my favorite. I’ve read it from cover to cover and, well, understood everything. I really did. Now checking my site’s analytics is the first thing I do after awakening (oh, you will be there, too, believe me).
Why Google Analytics? 1) it is free; 2) it belongs to Google, which we all want to buddy up with 3) you’ll freak out of all its hidden possibilities. With its help, you can learn about your audience as much as even your best friend doesn’t know about you. Eli explains how to get this wisdom and make the most of it — from account setup to audience segmentation.
Discover UI, UX and other interesting combinations of letters. You’d better take some meal with you while reading this one, because Eli will talk about Hamburger Icons among other trends of 2016. And also get ready for 10 Commandments of Color Theory and Tools for non-designers.
Of course, web design is complicated. Don’t expect this e-book to teach you how to code your own template. But it will help you understand the complex web design terminology and its basic principles. Learn how to keep a website beautiful and convenient without any outer help.
SEO is like that strict university teacher: first, you don’t want to do piles of homework he/she gives, and afterwards you’re surprised to find out how much you’ve learnt from her.
Why don’t we like to do SEO?
Why should we still do SEO by all means? Because when it finally gives results, they are huge and amazing. And forever.
This e-book is where you can start with both elementary and advanced SEO. Eli covered all aspects, so you won’t need ten additional guides, and explained everything step-by-step (+useful tools).
Are you still you here, listening to me? Okay, it's not serious - you have a list of great e-books and a cool aim, so go ahead. And subscribe for Startup Hub, we have a lot of interesting stuff there, too.
