The number one killer of a successful web project is bad assumptions running amok. Whether it’s a complete redesign, switching to a new CMS, or developing a completely new digital property, faulty expectations can doom a project before it even starts.

Join Sara Murray from Boston Interactive to debunk the top 10 web design myths and break free of the most common misconceptions:

CMS selection can wait
- Visual design is the most important piece of any project
- Mobile comes in the next phase
- The project is done after you launch
- and more!

Make sure your next website project stays on track by separating fact from fiction. Plan for a successful design and launch with the right information and expectations from day one.
