- Often do not have trained employees.
- Don’t understand their target market.
- Feel it is too expensive or it drags out the timeline.
- Are simply unaware of the various needs of their users.
This may no longer be an option.

Search Engine Journal welcomes Kim Krause Berg to its writing staff.
Her debut article is an extensively researched piece on website accessibility law, called Website Accessibility & the Law: Why Your Website Must Be Compliant
“A homepage answers questions. It walks up to complete strangers in the hopes of having a conversation. I watch how people interact and try to emulate how we do that. We share information with people we trust, so design for credibility. We like to feel welcome, so address visitors by identifying them and showing them something you know they want to see.
We respond to action, so give your visitors something to do (buy, shop, read, follow, sign up, subscribe, order, find, explore, try, contact, watch demo, share, download, etc.) We have feelings, desires, needs, short memories or poor eyesight, so choose colors, words, images and layout that portray empathy and acknowledge the human being who has arrived.”
Kim Krause Berg spoke on accessibility and marketing for the #SEOisAEO video series.
Accessibility for an answer engine world: for whom and in what environments?
Kim Krause Berg: “The way we view accessibility is outdated. We tend to think that it’s for blind or deaf who needed assistive technology like JAWS. But that is dated – 15 years old. Today, we refer to it as assistive and inclusive. Accessibility includes billions of people around the world, beginning with sight impaired, but also people who forget their glasses… but it’s also the mental or emotional state. If you are using assistive technology through voice, maybe you are upset? Or intoxicated? Or medicated? Or simply easily distracted by the zippy sliders, pop-ups and other intrusive things that sites throw at us.”
