1

Why A Website?

Write down your online mission statement and set your short term and long term goals for your website. Describe how this new tool will help your business.

2

Branding and Messaging

Your business image is more than your logo, its your business culture, your business personality and your business attitude. What do you want to say to the world?

3

Domains and Hosting

Yes, now its time for the geeky stuff. Pick your internet address (domain name or URL) and the hosting service provider (the computer server that publishes your pages on the internet).

4

Gathering the Content

Pulling together articles, pictures, hyperlinks is critical. Choosing the best words, images and page elements is difficult and emotional. Visit other sites and see what they have done. It helps.

5

Timeline & Budget

Pink Floyd and the Rolling Stones. "Money, its a drag", but we need it to deliver the goods. "Time is on my side, yes it is", until its not. Make a realistic and achieveable schedule!
