Thanks for a great comment. This is what can happen when bean conters set marketing strategy. It is easy to understand what a web redesign costs or can do, less easy to understand content strategy. The other thing is that a commitment to content development is is ongoing.

I just left a job where "My sales staff can't sell online" . . however, it wasn't that we didn't know how to sell online, it was that we literally had nothing to sell.

The organization spent a ton of money redesigning the website, and forgot the other part of the equation: content creation. Gee, it's nice that the website is pretty, but we can't charge for impressions that don't exist since nobody is visiting as a result of there being nothing new to see. Online real estate became a piece of added value to package with print schedules.

Needless to say, I've since washed my hands of that situation.
