|If you have decided you want a web page and don't know how to
start, here are some basic suggestions. Please feel free to e-mail us with any questions.
Gather together the text, photos, and graphics you want
included on your page and separate your information into categories to get any idea of how
many pages you will want on your site. Keep in mind that your site should be simple,
unique, attractively presented and load quickly (under a minute).
Make note of your preferred color scheme, if you
have one, or you may consult with your web page designer for suggestions.
Decide what "extras" you would like
included on your site. Would you like a guestbook, a counter, an interactive form?
Write up your text and proof-read it for grammar and
clarity. If you need help in writing your copy, we can help you.
You may want to secure a "domain name", a
site name that is unique to you (yourbusiness.com) or, we can secure one for you.
If you don't have one, you will have to find a
"host" for your site. There are many services that will host your site for free
(in exchange for banner ad) or you can use a pay service. Prices start at $5.00 a month.
We can go over the options with you and help you decide which service suit your
Your files with then be uploaded to the ftp (file
transfer protocol) site provided by your web host.
If you want others to find you when searching,
considering having us submit your site to the various search engines.
You may also want to consider advertising your site
using banner or link exchange.
