You want to learn how to maintain a website.
Your business needs a new website OR
Design details to consider
Is your site selling a product or a service? Or created to share information?
Most websites are a mix of both products and information.
WHO views your website and reads your text? Who is your business focussing on?
Your existing customers plus attracting new customers.
Eg. are you appealing to small businesses, individuals, clubs or organisations, families, teachers or students? One specific demographic?
Creating your site
Ask yourself these FIVE website questions:
1. Which tabs or pages do you need to include? Four, five or six tabs are best.
About you / about your company / about your products
A photo gallery
Links in and out of your website are essential as they create regular traffic and improve your website's
visibility to Google and other Search Engines - that is Search Engine Optimisation or SEO.
Do you have a current link to other websites, a YouTube clip, a Wiki page, or an Etsy site?
2. Will you include extra visual or audio elements?
Eg. a video, a graph, a music file, an animation, a review, a contact form, a blog, a questionnaire, an artwork, a table, a map, a flowchart, a price list or a visitor counter?
3. Which social media links to include? Eg. Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest or Instagram?
4. What is the best, most logical Domain name for your business?
Choose the minimum of words with the closest match to your Business name eg.
or use your name for your website, like this one www.brucefuhrer.com
5. Do you have a deadline?
A personal or business goal for this year. An event, a big sale or a workshop?
Collect your images into a folder or onto a USB drive
