Why is it that every single person in the world has stories and can easily tell them to their friends and family, but in the business context many people are afraid of storytelling—or they think it is only for creatives…or that it is less effective than data and facts?

Accessibe—Website Accessibility and Compliance Made Easy
Did you know that 98% of websites cannot be accessed properly by people with disabilities?
Chances are your site has issues that not only frustrate many of your users, but could lead to significant fines. For example, if your site is found to violate the Americans with Disabilities Act, your first violation could result in a penalty of $55,000 to $75,000. And additional violations can result in a $150,000 fine.
The ADA applies to all businesses—and there are many other accessibility-related laws to consider—so it’s not something you should ignore. Several years ago, Target paid a $6 million settlement on a lawsuit brought by the National Federation of the Blind. Domino’s Pizza also lost a lengthy lawsuit by a blind man who sued the chain when he was unable to order pizza off the Domino’s website or mobile app—even with screen reading technology.
The good news is that it’s easy to check your site for any compliance issues, fix them quickly and make your site user friendly for everyone.
Just go to Accessibe to get a free site scan and to learn more about their compliance products.
