LeadStreet Sam asks a question . . . will you comment?So I've been looking into a new tool offered by some folks in Michigan to help LeadStreet users make their websites prettier. Their offer includes SEO and quite a few other features, for a low monthly fee. It sounds great! And they definitely have some pretty designs.
However, I caught the "tail-end" of the video presentation that stated that you give up access to your site builder, should you sign up for the service. Which seems to add a limitation to the functionality of the website. Also, as I've traveled around the country, agents WANT a "pretty" option.
My contention, however, has been that "it's not how pretty the site is, but what it's content is." The unique flexibility of the LeadStreet site builder allows the user to customize whatever he/she wants to say, and present it to the public. But, as the argument goes, Realtors are not web masters!
So . . . my question: which is better, "pretty" or "useful?" And I'm only talking about websites here! Your comments will be taken seriously. Thanks. By Sam Ferreri
