Where do I Start
  1. You have an idea for a web site.
  2. You assemble a tool set to allow you to turn your ideas into reality.
  3. You design and build your web site.

Sounds simple doesn't it, and many people have done just that, with mixed results. Success on the Internet is normally defined by the number of hits a web site gets. Successful sites generate a lot of first time business, usually because the subject matter is interesting to a large audience. The truly successful sites generate repeat business because of the quality of the web page design and content.

This simple approach should be in the forefront of your mind when you set out on the road to your killer web site.

The web is populated with countless thousands of web sites, some are successful, most probably are not. Your site will set out on the road to success based on its subject matter. A site which supplies valuable information to a large audience should be more successful than a site aimed at a very small niche market. Bear in mind though, if the large audience already has a large selection of sites to choose from, then your site may be lost amongst the clutter.

There is probably no such thing as a good subject, but there are some bad subject choices. Unless you happen to be famous, a site dedicated to you and your family life will not interest an audience much larger than your family and friends.

Whatever you choose, make sure you know what you are talking about. Bad information is worse than no information at all. Be prepared to keep what is there up to date. Better a small up to the minute site, with an archive of old information, than a huge rambling site where new information is lost amongst the clutter.

So, we have an idea, where now?
