In today’s day and age it is vitally important to have a professional website presence, and this
includes having a responsive site and mobile version. Responsive websites simply mean they
“respond” to the environment (device) on which a website opens up in, whether it be a full-size
desktop computer, laptop, or tablet. Mobile sites are just that - websites designed to work on the
various cell phones on the market, including Android, Windows and Apple devices.
So what exactly goes into making a website?
The first thing you need to decide on is your domain name and where the site will be hosted.

Next, you need to decide upon is how big of a presence do you need. In other words, do you
need just a one-page supersite, or a website featuring a full commerce store, or is a simple 3-4
page sufficient to advertise your product or services?
A third, but very important step, is breaking your services or products down in order to clearly
get the message across to your customers. If you are selling hundreds of products online, you
are going to need a fully search-able data base and an e-commerce function, but also a set of
simply designed pages customers can easily look through to find what they need. If you offer a
variety of services, you will need to clearly outline what those services include.
Next, is putting everything together, including professional-looking images and/or videos,
social links, information about your business or services, and of course contact information.
Finally, you need to get your website “search-able” - in other words, just because you publish
your website does not automatically means your customers are able to find it. A critical part of
website design includes strong SEO (Search Engine Optimization) attributes. Depending on your
advertising budget, adding such things as Google AdSense is another option, but does not always
guarantee higher profitability either.
