Among the items that we will discuss will be choosing your domain name. There are several factors to keep in mind as you consider your options and I offer these ideas as we make your list of possible domain names. I take care of registering your choice of domain names FREE of cost, as well as renew it yearly at no cost to you.
After our first meeting and consultation, should you decide to proceed, I will register your choice of domain names, setup your hosting account & email accounts and design a "Coming Soon" page to announce your new website. This page will be "live" and viewable within 24-48 hours of our meeting.
Advantages of your Coming Soon page:
Your "Coming Soon" page has several advantages and uses.
You now have an established web presence so you can begin to include your address on correspondence.
This page can provide your contact information, email link and a photo of your storefront/business, yourself or your logo.
You will have an email address that will match your domain name and will be ready for your immediate use. This adds to the professionalism of your business or organization.
You are an expert in your field:
Your website is the place to provide quality content for your visitors. The expertise that you have gained in your business needs to come through in your pages. This builds credibility and trust with your visitor. As you prepare the content for your website, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
Anticipate the questions and concerns that your visitors may have about your product or service and provide the answers to these on your web site.
The information that you provide for the content of your site will be illustrated by photos and graphics that relate to your specific business.
Provide some information about yourself and your business so your visitors know that they are dealing with a real person not an impersonal web site.
- Organize your content by topics that are related to the Page Titles that we have established.
View your website as it is being developed:
Another benefit of establishing your website with a "Coming Soon" page is to be able to view your web site as it is being developed. As I go forward with the design of your site, I will provide a link for you to view your site as it is under development. Your first viewing will be to consider the custom design idea that I will develop for your site. After your approval, I will go forward with adding the content that you provide for your site.
As your design progresses and I begin to add your content, it helps you visualize your completed site. You may think of additional information that you would like to add. This can be done, but is is more economical to plan for all pages of information up front, since major changes in navigation and page layout are time consuming at this point in the process.
