So you are looking to build a web site...

Glad to hear it! I have personally been involved with all aspects of website creation on (literally) hundreds of web projects. I have gained thousands of hours experience building business, personal, non-profit and government websites with custom databases, content management systems and unique graphic designs as well as one of a kind photography geared toward your site vision. We look forward to applying that knowledge to your unique project. 

But before we get ahead of ourselves, let me share the following thoughts with you. Several things need to be taken into consideration before the look and feel of your website is decided. First and foremost, we need to have a solid understanding of what the primary reason the website is being created for.

In order for us help you capture what you are after, we need to understand what your business goals and dreams are. What are you trying to accomplish? Once we know that, we can determine how our talents can be utilized to help you successfully achieve those goals.

Planning Your Site

  • Primary Purpose
    What is the purpose of the web site? Do you want to provide information, promote a service, sell a product?
  • Overall Goal
    What do you hope to accomplish by building this web site? Two of the more common goals are either to make money or share information.
  • Target Audience
    Is there a specific group of people that will help you reach your goals? It is very helpful to picture the “ideal” person you want to visit your web site. Consider their age, sex or interests. Knowing this will later help us determine the best design style for your site.
  • Content Content Content
    What kind of information will the target audience be looking for on your site? This includes both photography and narrative copy. Are they looking for specific information, a particular product or service, online ordering?

Don't Forget Maintenance and Backups

These things are too often overlooked. 

What is your plan to keep the website up to date? A site that is not current may be worse than not having a site at all. We can help you determine what your best course of action is, and even store off-site backups for you. Do you want the site created to allow you to do the updates, or do you want to leave that task to someone else?

Please contact us and we can get started on a plan to begin creating your business vision.
