WEB SITE SERVICES

Offering web design services from concept to completed site, my goal is to present your information clearly, whether your site is a simple online brochure or a complex site with many graphics and forms.

It is important to establish the purpose and message of your web site. A review of competing sites and your current marketing materials helps to focus your site information. Your content is organized to be useful for your visitors. See Site Preparation below for general guidelines.

The appearance of your site should enhance your content. Flashy "razzle-dazzle" has its place, but can distract a visitor. Technology should showcase your message, not be an end in itself. See Client Samples below for examples of my work.

 

I offer the following services:

Initial consulting to help you organize your site information: Web site design or redesign; how your information is presented

Web site production: Copy writing and editing; site layout and navigation; graphics creation; site coding including tables and forms

Web site maintenance/training for in-house maintenance.

Whether you want a new site or a facelift on an existing site, I'd be happy to review your web project with you.

SITE PREPARATION GUIDELINES

A lot of initial preparation is needed before a web site is launched. You must do some of this work; the rest can be done by yourself or by a web design service.

What you need before your web site is up and running:

A registered domain name

A web host on the Internet

An outline of the purpose and details of your site

The files that make up your site

Web site maintenance/training for in-house maintenance.

Whether you want a new site or a facelift on an existing site, I'd be happy to review your web project with you.

A general explanation of the process:

Obtain your domain name. All domain names are registered in a central index; choose among several current registrars to obtain your domain name. Registration costs vary. Some registrars offer additional services; the lowest price is not always the best deal.

Select your web host, who stores your web site files and presents them to your site visitors. Most sites use "rented space" on a host's computers. A web hosting service costs from a few dollars to hundreds per month. Select a host tailored to your site requirements. Choose your webmaster before contracting with a host.

Outline your site: the content you want on your site, how visitors will use the site, what message you present—think this out before your site is prepared. Only you know the purpose of your site. I can review your marketing materials and competing sites, and suggest ways to focus your message.

Prepare the files for your web site. This includes the HTML files, images, scripts, and forms that make your site useful. Many do-it-yourself programs allow you to produce your own files. For simple sites, this might be all you need. Otherwise, find a webmaster to analyze your site's requirements, organize the layout and connectivity, and prepare the files for your site.
