Getting Your Business Online

Just about anyone can slap a website together on a free drag-n-drop web host. In fact YouTube is loaded with tutorials about “Building a Website in Under 5 Minutes”. But how much value could you possibly publish in just five half-hearted minutes? Not much!

Unfortunately, five minutes can actually exceed the amount of effort many small business owners expect to put into their site. The Internet is crammed with abandoned web sites that have never accomplished anything because most people started out wanting miracles while investing very little.

Building a successful online presence is certainly going to be a challenge. But putting in the time and effort will all be worth it! And, if done correctly, it can result in a nice increase in long-term business.

Below are the components necessary in the Getting Online phase. Be sure to check out each one.

Domain Names

This is at the core of your online identity. It’s almost as important as your company name in that it will help brand you as well as give your online presence an established image.

Web Hosting and Email

Now that you have your domain name it’s time to find a hosting company to provide a reliable home for your site.

Content Development

There are many different types and purposes. Here you will discover that content goes way beyond just posting a few brochure-style pages.

Website Design
