Up to my ears in websites

With 2010 underway, it’s time to start checking things off my to-do list for the year. One of the to-do’s was to get some updated photography for the ranch. As I mentioned in my last post, that kind of fell into my lap with Alex showing up at the ranch. I still don’t have all the final shots to share with you, but just to give you an idea of what he did, here is his shot of the Great Room. Yowzer.

Next up in the world of marketing is to start thinking about updating and upgrading the website. There are some things I really like about it, but also some things we’re wanting to do better. I’ve spent a bulk of the day poring over other websites to see what I like about others, and what I don’t like. I’ll tell you what, I’m ready to take a vacation right now. There are some cool places out there. How do I convince others to come for a Colorado ranch vacation instead? Our website definitely doesn’t do the place justice….but it’s hard to capture the essence of the ranch in pictures and words. It’s just more than that. However, I would love to hear any feedback from all of you. Are there any sites that you really like? Are there aspects of our site that you love, or don’t love? The blog world is one of transparency, so feel free to post thoughts here. But, if you want to be more private, you can also email me at reservations@vistaverde.com

I’ll keep you posted on the progress!
