DBVT.COM Services Area now powered by ScrewTurn Wiki

One of my goals for 2010 was to convert my DBVT.COM Services page to a wiki where I would have the freedom to update and change my message more easily.  Here’s what the Services page looked like. One long static message that’s over a year old.

Below is the new wiki-based Services page.  It’s hard to see at the reduced size (though you can also go to the real thing), but I’m breaking up my marketing copy to highlight particular services for more bite-sized messages to help perspective clients find what they’re most interested in.

The pages are pretty basic right now, but I wanted to get them online. What I think is very cool about the wiki pages is that I only did a small amount of tweaking to make them look like ordinary DBVT.COM content pages, yet with the bonus functionality of ScrewTurn navigation, searching, categorization, RSS, and so on.

Below is the editor page, which brings us to the very coolest part of using ScrewTurn Wiki as my Services area. I have “double-click to edit” enabled in ScrewTurn so whenever I want to change the copy I simply double-click on the page and the editor appears. It is so boss!

I’ve got more planned for the Services area, but I don’t want to spoil the surprise. If all goes according to plan, it’s going to be smokin’ hot.
