What's the Process?

Starting Point

The starting point is deciding what it is you want your website to do for you. Is it just a means to provide contact details for your friends or customers? Do you want to show your skills or maybe a portfolio of artwork or photographs? Do you want to sell your goods or services on the internet? The size and complexity of the finished site depends on all these things. A simple "about and contact" site will be very small, quick and cheap. Something more complex will require more pages and illustrations or pictures.

What Style?

Do you have an idea or what style of site you want? Have you seen one which you like the look of? I can certainly get close to most styles, without infringing copyright or creating a complex beast of a website which requires running program scripts to make it function, slowing the loading process. But some of the best sites are the simple ones which get across the point of the site. These are often looked on favourably by the big search engines, which in turn means you rank higher in their searches, nearer the top, without paying a fortune to achieve higher ranking.

What Content?

Whatever style of site you want, it still needs to have information on it. A "bells and whistles" site will be soon forgotten if there is nothing interesting on it, so let's think about content. The content, and the quantity of content, really dictates the size and complexity of the site required. I can code the site but I know nothing about you or your work so I can't write the copy to fill your site. You will need to provide that, along with any pictures, graphics and photographs you want to use on the site. Don't worry about spelling. I can correct spelling and grammatical errors and optimise graphics/pictures for page loading efficiency purposes.

What's Next?

Once you've got a clear idea of what you want, you can choose how much you want me to do with regard to the end result of a live website. Which ever method you choose, you can be sure that you will retain full control of your own accounts and may change anything at any time. There is no fixed or long term contract to sign. My services are provided as required by you, the customer.
