Just found this article from PDN and thought you might want to check it out.  From the article:

The co-founder of the Web site design and hosting service offered tips for making your site  a more effective marketing tool during his video tutorial, “Your Web Site is Killing Your Business,” at the PDN Virtual Trade Show, “Focus on Wedding and Portrait Photography,” on May 25.
