There are many ways to build websites these days, from programming to simplified platforms that have been designed to create very robust and professional looking sites.
Most people will go online to research a product, service or find information before they make a decision and finally purchase. For this you are going to need a website otherwise what is the point of going into the online marketing game.
Your website is a place where you can engage with your potential customer and form a relationship.
If you don’t have a web presence it is going to be extremely difficult for people to find you and to sell anything.
So a website is an essential tool that all online businesses should have in order to establish that foundation phase.
So whatever your website expectations, you can virtually create it in a couple of steps.
When creating a website there are certain criteria that must first be met.
- Where will you host it?
- Will the provider be able to deliver on the time it takes to load the website and the pages?
- What is the guaranteed up time?
- Does it have a professional look – Is it easy on the eye?
- Does it have a CMS? (Content Management System)
- Does it have good content that is it well written?
