Site Planning

Building without plans is never okay. Even a single page requires laying out in careful detail where all the pieces will go. Watching the mounting frustration in someone who is trying to use a poorly planned website will soon convince you that planning is worthwhile. At the ultimate extreme, the visitor will leave and never return.

To start planning is often the hardest part of building a website. Answering the following seven simple questions will give you a good start on the process.

Site Design

Do you have the purpose of your website sorted out? No? Then read the section on Planning. Do you have your content gathered together? No? Then read the section on Writing. What about some pictures and graphics? Yes! Then we are ready to talk about site design.

Design of a website takes two elements. The site plan determines how the various pages and pieces of content will be put together. The second part is the "look and feel" of each page of the website.

Hosting

The process of having a website should be as simple as possible.  To that end I provide hosting for a lot of my clients.

What you get is a local British Colombia phone number and someone who has done the research to find the best value possible.  These folks know what they are doing. That allows me to offer you a premium service at a very low cost.  Rates range from $20 to $35 a month. I ask for 6 months paid in advance.
