Preplanning a website is perhaps the most important, and most overlooked, part of the Web site process. Careful planning on your part can save you time and money. Below is a list of questions to help you get started:
What is the purpose for creating your website? What does it need to do?
Are they your customers or is this site for internal use? Deciding this aspect determines how you will 'talk' to the viewer. The language you use and the tone you take will be considerably different if you are talking with someone in your industry versus talking to a novice seeking information.
Aside from the home page and a contact page, what additional pages will you require to showcase your wares or services.
Be concise and succinct, but start putting down in writing the content you feel you need for each page.
Providing samples of other websites with design and functional elements that appeal to you is helpful in determining the style of website you are seeking to achieve.
Costs vary from website to website and are unique to each project. Only after a detailed consultation (by phone or in person) can we begin to understand the time and costs involved. Remember, we're developing something original for you.
There is a website for every budget and all fees are agreed upon before the project begins. No hidden costs or surprises. Contact me, let me know what your needs are and we'll start from there.
"Even though I don't know Karen personally, I can see by some of her work that she is an articulate programmer.
She also uses php extensively, which shows she is sensitive to the important client/server concepts in website design.
I highly recommend her as a web designer and would encourage you to consider her on your next project."
