Clarify Website Purpose
What three things you want visitors to your website to do?
Examples:
Contact you to request services
Attend an event
Sign up for your newsletter
Watch your video
Read your resume
Buy a CD
What else do you want them to do or feel, after having visited your website?
Examples:
Be impressed by your expertise
See that you are well-connected in an area that is important to them
Be curious about your strategy for making money online
Feel that they are missing out if they don't get your newsletter
Choose a Site Builder
We have many choices for online website builders. The following are all easy to use, free or affordable, multifeatured, robust options that we have used ourselves. Your choice will depend on if you like the templates, the monthly cost, and the features you'd like. We can help you determine which one is best to start with:
  • Microsoft Office Live - no monthly fee
  • Site Kreator - monthly fee varies, typical package Business level $19.95 per month
  • Or others: Yahoo Site Solutions, GoDaddy Website Tonight or Smart Space
We reserve the right to stop here, refunding all of your fee, if after talking, we decide you need to choose something more than a jumpstart website. Normally, we'll determine this prior to you paying, but as we talk your ideas and our understanding may evolve.
